    Next Day Thread: Redskins vs. Saints

    I think people are getting a little too excited about this. I expect Philly to go on a roll. They are losing close games to good teams while working an injured QB back in. I don't expect them to be bad enough for us to back into a division title.

    Yes, let's hope and pray Bruce and Jay do just enough so we get another year of this.

    Some Hard Truths

    Again, I'm referring mainly to the preponderance of questions about out clauses lately. But if you ask if there is an out in a contract and that's not what you mean, use better words. The difference between 9 mil in dead cap and 6 mil, for example, doesn't represent an "out" in a contract. They're both "outs".

    Some Hard Truths

    Smith is among the very few with guaranteed salaries. And I probably shouldn't say 99% because a lot of FA contracts right now have a couple years guaranteed, but it's still a rarity. Obviously, when you release a player determines what the dead cap will be.But the above poster shed if there were an "out" int he contract. There isn't. Such things are almost completely non-existent in the NFL. And I'm not picking on him. This keeps coming up on this board the last year or two. People keep asking about, and talking about "out clauses". That's something specific, and far different than just wondering what it will cost.

    Some Hard Truths

    99%+ of NFL contracts are non-guaranteed. Which means those players can be released at any time. People need to quit posting about "outs" in contracts. There's no such thing. There's no need for any such thing.
  6. Never heard of him. Do you mean Norman Einstein?

    247Sports: Josh Norman benched during Redskins' blowout loss

    The guy is just another example of what this perpetual battle to get to 9-7 portends. He's a player, like many before him, that a smart team would move on from a year early rather than a year late. Especially when you know it's not your year to contend. Maybe you could have traded him for some draft capital, but at the least, we could have saved some cap space. Instead we pay him a ton even when he reaches a point where he's no longer worth nearly what we're paying him. Just because maybe he makes us a little better in the now and maybe that's enough to save some people their jobs for another year. And that's more important than trying to build something.
  8. If someone hasn't been a GM before, you really can't know what kind of a job they'll do in the position. Smith seems like he's good at drafting players, but how he would do in a holistic way, what kind of vision or foresight he would have, we can't know. And we don't get to intevrview him. We just have to trust that the people who would choose our next GM know what they are doing......

    Evaluating Jay Gruden in 2018

    Was Paul Krause on the team? I'm trying to build a mental 8mm to play in my head.

    Evaluating Jay Gruden in 2018

    I remember we squeaked out a tight one over a really awful 49ers team last year after the bye. Remembering two years ago is too much to ask of an old man like me.
  11. It's kind of a preposterous angle to take to debate that. Basically 'I don't trust Allen and Co to build a team, so therefore we should try to be good enough that Bruce and Co keep their jobs'.
  12. We should. We won't. Come to think of it, that would make a good slogan for the Snyder years.

    How the F are we always so bad after a freaking bye week? Other coaches feast on that week, it seems to curse Jay Gruden like Ricketts and pop-up ads.
