  1. I wouldn't worry about pressure at all from the fans. He already has a chip on his shoulder and is ready to prove the other teams that passed up on him how wrong they were, including the Giants (I would love too see that twice a year myself ). He is a good kid with good head on them shoulders. He is mentally sharp and will do just fine. Of course he will make mistakes and have a learning curve but as fans of the teams we just can't wait to see what he can do on the field. That's all. HTTR!
  2. I am pretty sure Djax speed from 2 years ago is not the same in 2018.
  3. So Guice is faster than Djax. NICE!!! Is there anyway we can have him cover Djax when we play Tampa?
  4. Thanks for changing the thread title. Even with a new coach they have to keep the core/key players on the roster and sign players like DSP on a long term, and by adding youth you can have some speed as well. If done correctly they can certainly go back-to-back.
  5. Cousins tops biggest contracts Kirk Cousins' fully guaranteed contract surpassed Jimmy Garoppolo's megadeal from earlier this offseason. Want Kirk wanted, Kirk got. Sure hope he doesn't fail the Vikes. If the Vikes go 7-9 or 6-10 in 2018 that would be really bad on their FO. Here is a link of all the big contracts with Kirk being #1 and Jimmy now the #2. http://www.nfl.com/photoessays/0ap3000000915508/nfls-biggest-contracts-for-2018
  6. @ixcuincle I am sorry man but the title of this thread keeps on making me think we are still in 2017... lol May I suggest that you change the thread title to something along these lines.... Washington Capitals - The Stanley Cup Champions!!! - 2018-2019 Season Thread The off-season is implied and I am pretty sure most here know what year we won the cup. I know what you mean by it but it just reads like it is last year's and this year's off-season thread. Just a thought.
  7. Rank the Skins' head coaches over the last 25 years

    Let's fire Bruce and hire Vinny back to see if it can be repeated.
  8. Rank the Skins' head coaches over the last 25 years

    Yeah I can see that happening in your head. So, never create a thread while at the airport for you then...lol j/k Gibbs 2 would have been so great if he didn't go and get Al Saunders right after we lost that playoff game in 05. Gibbs was so close and by bringing in Al totally pissed me off since that meant starting the offense all over again with a new scheme. So for me I give the push to Gruden for the #1 spot and then Gibbs. Everyone else kinda goes somewhere in the spots below that.
  9. Rank the Skins' head coaches over the last 25 years

    Sounds like to me you got to the bottle of Jack first and laughed so hard and forgot to post your rankings. lol
  10. On the way to the Nats game (and the Nats lose the second game to NYY I might add), my son looked it up and gave me the figures. He was reading off an article that had these figures. I had him look up the avg salary of NHL coaches and he said it was around 4-5 mil. Should have asked him what site he was on though. Anyways, it is what it is and Barry is gone and hopefully his replacement can get us back to back.
  11. So Barry was making 1.5 mil and was offered 1.8 mil. Barry laughed in their faces and quit. Don't blame the guy since most coaches in the league are making between 4-5 mil.
  12. Let's All Get Behind Alex Smith!

    Yeah there were a lot of factors. In my original post it was just a one liner about the competency of Dan and not really to rehash the past for RG3. With Alex he has to take the team deep into the playoffs. If not then yes it was a bad trade.
  13. Let's All Get Behind Alex Smith!

    You can post it in this one.
  14. Let's All Get Behind Alex Smith!

    Again he would have been 1 year wonder. He couldn't read defenses and used his legs to compensate. When his leg/knee got hurt he become 1 dimensional. RG3 was never a true pocket passer and couldn't become one. Sorry but I think Wentz still > RG3 even after his knee injury last year. Now if Wentz this year becomes like RG3 then you can compare apples to apples. Right now it is just apples to oranges.
  15. Let's All Get Behind Alex Smith!

    Alex begin older gives him that edge slightly over Kirk, experience wise. But you are right that Kirk did have those what the **** should I do now here moments. I think I will just get sacked instead...lol
  16. Let's All Get Behind Alex Smith!

    Ever since a fan bought the team is like a kid in a candy store. For the last 20 years Dan has always been win now attitude/urgency hence the coaching carousal and the flashy players signed to mega deals instead of spending that money on getting couple of good players and having depth. Should have never drafted RG3 and lose all those draft picks for a one year wonder. It least with Gruden there is some sense of stability or else they would have not kept him. They got Alex because he fits in Gruden's offense and can fit right in (hopefully) where Kirk left off. Up until the players started getting hurt in that Chiefs game we looked like we were going somewhere. You will never have the prefect players but if you are a good coach and have the depth then you can still win a championship even with your backup QB.
  17. True. Would have been really cool for the fans and the Skins players if Ovi and the gang showed up at Redskins Park with the cup.
  18. I could see it now. Bud Light - The beer choice of the Stanley Cup Winners Washington Capitals.
  19. Trump got out-honored by some Russians...lol
  20. Ovi to the fans: "I thought it was going to be crazy today but this is nuts. You guys are killin' it!"
  21. HAHAHA... Kuzy says lets **** this **** on live TV. Apparently he spoke some Russians word.
  22. I have been MIA from the stadium because of the Caps. Stanley Cup winners Caps no less. Thanks for the posting this SIP. The quote above reminds me of when I was a manager for McD back in the early 90's (hey it paid my college bills and not bad to be a manager of your very first job at age 20) and I use to tell the employees to take care of the customers really well because if the customers don't come then you won't have a job. These customers pay your wages. To see someone in this day and age and being really young to say something like this tells me Guice has a very good head above his shoulders. HTTR!
  23. You could have just googled ovi wife instagram. Here is the link if you don't want to use the app. https://www.instagram.com/nastyashubskaya/?hl=en
  24. Except when he said Caps in 6. When the schedule against the VGK came out I posted on my Facebook page and here saying Caps in 5.
