  1. I googled Washington Redskins pa announcer and came up with Mark Kessler. Hope that helps. https://mobile.twitter.com/kessler411?lang=en
  2. I would be really happy with scenario 4 but holy **** I would be over the moon with #3. I could take or leave Trubisky. Maybe Gruden is going to get the chance to pick his own guy and sink or swim with him. I know the guy is divisive, but Mixon is another Zeke. He would take our offense to another planet. But my favorite part of this draft would be getting Jaleel Johnson, Charles Walker, and Stevie Tu'ikolovatu in the 4th round or later. Johnson and Walker are starter level talents and Stevie is a decent rotational nose imo. I doubt this happens though. I could see Johnson and Walker going earlier. Maybe 3rd-4th round. Other guys that I like that could swap at certain spots would be OJ Howard(mancrush), Tomlinson (great nose with some pass rush potential), Adams, Chris Godwin, and Davis Webb.
  3. Just watched Ross' 40. The thing that struck me is how smooth and effortless it looked. Very DJax like.
  4. Been away for a bit but lurking. I was going to post about the combine but the site stored my last typed up post on my phone. It actually seems a little more appropriate since new info has come to light. OK I'm on record as saying we need to pay Kirk and build around him. He is the best qb for this team. Sure he's prone to throwing the back breaking pick, but he's also prone to those magical runs where he can carve up any defense in front of him. You telling me that Kirk with a strong running game and defense can't make a run? You're outta your mind! I don't think that money is an issue since the cap is projected to jump next year and the year after next. See what Jameis, Carr, and Mariota sign for when they come up for their deals. However, since this is the draft thread and I dont want it to turn into another runaway freght train Kirk thread, this is all theoretical and what I imagine some kind of contingency plan that the Skins have to at least be thinking about would go: Say Kirk knows that Kyle wants him and is determined see what San Francisco will offer him and basically tells the Skins they will have to overpay to keep him. He tells them he wants 27 mil per and 70 guaranteed or he walks, and not only that but he makes it clear that if he is not signed to a long term deal then he will play out the franchise tag and then walk. If that happens I think you have to explore all options. If the trade offered was the #2 pick, a second next year, and this and next year's 3s as was previously mentioned in this thread, that is a pretty ridiculous haul and gives us 3 1s, 3 2s, and 4 3s over the next two years(personally I don't think we get that much for him. Maybe a 2 this year and a 1 and 3 next year). I'd do one of two things: 1. Move up to #1 and draft Rosen next year. With the extra picks from the Cousins trade, we could afford to move up and still have enough picks to build around him. 2. Draft a Patrick Mahomes/Davis Webb in the 2nd-3rd round range this year and then draft another qb in the same range next year. Let those guys sit and learn while McC builds a team around them and then let them compete for the starting job. I am intrigued by Webb. He has a better arm than Cousins. He also seems to excel at throwing the short stuff and setting his playmakers up for yac. I think he could be decent given a year or two to learn. In that time McC would have a better team around him so that the team can carry the qb, rather than the other way around. Those are just my opinions on gim. I watched the Stanford cut up on draft breakdown to form my opinions. I am not a scout so I'm definitely wrong, but that's just, like, my opinion man. I like Mahomes because of the baseball background. He just screams Matt Stafford gunslinger to me. Anyways, that post ran really long, so thanks if you stayed til the end. My point is that Cousins should be plan a, but we have to be ready for plan b and beyond. I can't speak for others, but that doesn't mean I want him gone. And now to my new post. OJ Howard ran a 4.51. Mancrush. Engage.

  6. I doubt it would happen, but if the Niners were to offer that I think you have to at least think about it... I've been thinking about this lately. Recent history has shown that an increasing number of QB's have come from the 2nd round or later (Kirk, Wilson, Carr, Dak, Dalton). I'd say draft one for a couple years straight, let them sit and learn, and then compete. If we did trade Cousins then that's 2 1s, 2 2s, and 4 3s over the next two years. Use a couple of those nice early 2nd/3rds to get a couple of young guys in here. Or, use some of that ammo to try to move up to 1 to get Rosen. Scott could easily use all those early picks to draft a strong defense and running game that every young qb needs to lean on. Again, this will never happen. Just my opinion on how I would do this in Madden lol
  7. Thanks again for the replies folks. I'm pretty much settled on building my own now. My local micro center has an i7 6700k and Asus mobo bundled for 366. I think that's a pretty good deal. Probably going to go with the 1060 because I don't really have interest in vr games yet. Maybe once the technology gets a little better. Really, I just want it to look good in 1080p and I read that the 1060 is a good option for the price. Looking at a giant case with built in fans so I can expand later when I'm ready.
  8. Thanks for the replies. I've been pricing out my own stuff using the build guide over at http://www.build-gaming-computers.com/gaming-desktop-computer.html I was looking at doing the mid level build since I'm not going to be super hardcore about gaming. It just seemed that I would pay as much if not more than the pre-assembled one. One thing my friend did say to me was that with the pre-assembled units you don't know what brand of components are used. For games, I'm not really sure. I started playing Ark and was really getting into it. I find that the sandbox games are pretty cool. Never tried a shooter. I usually just play those on my console.
  9. I'm thinking about taking the plunge and getting myself a gaming PC. I found this guy over at Costco: https://www.costco.com/iBUYPOWER-C-i13-Gaming-Desktop---7th-Generation-Intel-Core-i7---3GB-NVIDIA-GTX-1060-Graphics.product.100328726.html Can anyone give me any impressions? I've been researching but most of this stuff goes over my head. One of my friends said that it is a good deal for a beginning gamer. I also love the extra year warranty from Costco. I know it's cheaper to build your own computer, but it looks like a comparable build is going to cost me close to what I would spend on this computer. Love to get some advice. Thanks folks.
  10. He will forever be Bob Morton to me. "You're gonna be a bad mother ****er." **** cancer.
  11. I'm still a proponent of Pettine, but I REALLY wanted us to talk to Romeo. Looks like he's winding it down unfortunately.
  12. I stand corrected lol
  13. Admittedly I don't watch college except for when Miami plays. I'm looking for him on draft breakdown. From what I've read and what I've seen tonight I'm sold. Not sure if you saw this but it was awesome. He totally goes to bat for a teammate over a funny incident. http://sports.yahoo.com/news/clemsons-ben-boulware-defends-christian-wilkins-inappropriate-grab-of-curtis-samuel-194524485.html
  14. You could just tell how much he wanted it. He could be our next London Fletcher. What he lacks physically, he makes up for with his intangibles. I think I posted it in here but I found an article about him and what a leader he is on that defense. I think that @Rattlesnake88 and I are the first two on the bandwagon lol
  15. Sorry, but I just don't see that. If we could, I would trade Kirk for Ben straight up in a hot second. I don't doubt that if the only swap was QB's then no Ben probably wouldn't have a ring with us yet, but no way Kirk has two, let alone one. Kirk is nowhere near as good as Ben is at the off schedule plays, which is where Ben tends to make his biggest plays. Pittsburgh's line has more coverage breakdowns and he would end up taking more sacks and probably tossing a few more ints. Behind our line, Ben would throw for 5k and 35 tds. Kirk needs a line like ours where he has good protection and only has to make a few off schedule plays. Now don't get me wrong, I like Kirk and he is our guy, but he is not a qb that can bail out his team like Roethlisberger can.
