  1. The Official Washington Wizards Thread: The JOHN WALL ERA

    Good lord, Gortat and Morris were terrible!!
  2. The Official 2017 Game Day Thread

    That actually kinda upset me that they included that kid crying at the beginning. And his parents tell him that he wasn't allowed to be upset? His team just lost a playoff game in heartbreaking fashion, but he wasn't "handling it" properly?
  3. The Official Washington Wizards Thread: The JOHN WALL ERA

    So what's our record against sub - .500 teams now?
  4. The Offense. (Every Snap broken down: Rams)

    Thanks for the breakdowns! I've referred some non-ESers to them.
  5. What happened to our Special Teams? - OP updated for end of regular season

    Final update: our ranking for the season is 22, so we did manage to claw out of the bottom 10. Hopefully next year we can get back to where we were during the GMSM years. Any thoughts on changes to be made on STs?
  6. Crowder has quietly been awesome lately

    OP updated with final season tallies: 66 catches, 789 yards, 3 TDs. Considering the poor start he got off to, he wasn't far off from last year's performance. His STs issues were troublesome, though I suspect they'll prove to be 1-year anomalies.
  7. Josh Doctson the new 50/50?

    500 yards and 6 TDs in a de facto rookie campaign? I'll take it. Give him time folks.
  8. I ran across this info the other day......... Net points for the season of playoff-bound teams Buffalo Bills: -57 Tennessee Titans: -22 Net points for non-playoff teams Baltimore Ravens: +92 LA Chargers: +83 I dunno, something about this doesn't really sit right with me. I think net points should count for more than just a distant tie breaker. I'm not sure what, but I think it should count for more than it does. Btw these teams were all vying for the same 2 WC spots, so it' not like any of them got in via weak divisions or anything. Should net points be bumped up on the tiebreakers list? Should it count as more than just a tiebreaker? Honestly I'm starting to think it should be the next most important thing besides head-to-head record and divisional record where applicable.

  10. Giants V Redskins Post Game Assessments

    Why on earth would anyone write off Crowder? He had around 800 yards this year, even with the slow start.
  11. Gameday Thread: Redskins at giants

    Crappy offense, crappy game, crappy team health. Please get well during the offseason, fellahs.
  12. Crowder has quietly been awesome lately

    Agreed. I edited the OP to reflect that I was only talking about offense, and even there, miscues have existed.
  13. Crowder has quietly been awesome lately

    It implies that he's been consistently at least respectable, to very good. If you consistently put up "good" numbers with some big games mixed in, I think that can be described as awesome. Crowder's play over the last 8 games of his reminds me of Garcon's 2013 season: 5 100+ yard games all year, but was steady about getting his 30-70 yards otherwise.
  14. Redskins Denver Post Game Assessments

    Barring injury, I actually think we're fine at the offensive skills positions. For a de facto rookie the 500ish yards and 6+ TD Doctson has put up is good. I'm in favor of extending Pryor on a cheap incentive-based deal: he was injured for most of the year, and did show promise early on. Even with some early struggles Crowder will probably break 800 yards on the year and has a shot at surpassing last year's yardage total. If Pryor is retained, I think he and Doctson will both play better next year. Thompson coming back will also be a big help. The bigger concern for me is OL. Kirk was under siege early on, which disrupted everything else. Once OL play improved as the game went on, our O settled in. I think we should add at least 1 high draft pick to the line this offseason.
  15. Crowder has quietly been awesome lately

    It's "at least" 50, for an average of 80. It's not "2 of 7 games were good," it's 7 games of consistent production including 2 big ones.
