    Booing - at the Stadium

    I don't boo my favorite team. Yes I curse and pull out my hair at home but at the game never. Our rugby team has only won 2 games in 3 years but I never boo. If another fan boos the team, well that is his/her right, we are all fans just different kinds.

    Ryan Grant Adrian Peterson
  3. You are right. I don't live in the US and my last 2 visits to DC, I only managed to find current players jerseys in the shops that I came across, unfortunately no legacy player jerseys ala 44. That would be my dream jersey.
  4. Last one I bought was 46 Alfred Morris. I should have bought 91 though. I'll buy one next year and it will be one Jonathan Allen or Guice.

    Cut-Down Day

    Well not all guys that don't produce/shine/difference makers in year one are JAGs and like Ioanddis and Preston Smith, just needs a bit of seasoning and experience and now we can see they can start to shine.

    Cut-Down Day

    This is a recurring theme on this type of thread, we seem to think our draft picks from the previous year(s) are fodder since they didn't start or put up great stats. Last year, a few were questioning why we hung onto Matt Ioanddis who haven't shown much. Now its Perine, didn't shine in his rookie year, now some he is not worthy of a spot without properly developing him.

    Rewatched Highlights from Last season, what stood out

    Nice recap. I'm also hopefully we build on the strengths we had last year but more importantly address the weaknesses we had like stopping the run and improving our red zone efficiency. I hope Alex Smith's experience alone can make some in roads into scoring more when we get into the red zone.
  8. Really glad these guys finally get their recognition of helping us win our 2nd SB. Good one Danny. Keep it going.

    Daniel Snyder ...Dare We Say a competent owner

    I agree with the OP, Dan is a good owner. There are rumours that he is still involved in running the redskins. If they are true, then he is not a good owner but a liar of an owner. His fault is he is too much of a fan that he has his own ideas of improving the team instead of trusting his well qualified FO he hired to bring this team back to respectability.

    2018 Draft Day Thread

    I was skeptical of the pick at first but now looks like a good decision. Having a jack of all trade S is great but doesn't solve the number 1 problem in this defense. Maybe James was rated slightly higher the Payne in our draft room but given our woeful run D, I would go Payne. he is the second best NT in this draft class and skipping him at 13 meant we run the risk of settling for a NT in the later rounds which could not address stopping the run. Maybe James will be the second coming of ST, well I'll feel sad on missing James but if Payne can clog the running lanes for Zeke, Barkley and Ajayi going forward and makes opposing offenses one dimensional, to me that would be better than having a pro bowler S but we continue to be gashed by opposing running games. Hankins to me is not part of this equation in that he will be an expensive option, and one that is not guaranteed even if we took James.

    I hope we get the Payne that played in the playoffs not the one during the season. Well its done so Tomsula, fly him in tomorrow so you can start teaching him how to consistently beat double teams.

    2018 Comprehensive NFL Draft Thread

    Based on our last few drafts, the Skins have been patient and stuck to their board. I hope they do the same and not get too infatuated with one single player/position that they make unscripted trades/moves for short term gains at the expense of long term strategy. We are fearful of a late mid-first round run on RBs that we want to trade out and down from 13 although there is strong possibility of a top prospect falling to 13 given expected run on QBs in the top 10. If a top prospect at CB (Minkah Fritzpatrick), S (Derwin James), G (Quentin Nelson), LB (Roquan Smith) falls to 13, I think long term we are better off taking those blue chip players instead of trading down to target Guice or R Jones in mid 20s (though I would love getting either one). I would love to snag one of these RBs (Guice, Jones or Michel) but I prefer staying put at 13 if any of the top guys are available.

    2018 Comprehensive NFL Draft Thread

    I'm not sold on T Edmunds at 13. From what I'm reading, he has a lot of athletic talent and frame and what not, but doesn't know what he is doing. At 13 I want a sure thing or close to it, not a project we hope we can coach up. One knock against J Allen last year was that teams ahead of us thought he has maxed out, reached his ceiling sort of thing and with the shoulder he fell. I would like something similar, a blue chip prospect or close to it like LB R Smith, S D James, CB M Fitzpatrick etc... Guys who were top 15 prospects long before the combine and after it.

    2018 Comprehensive NFL Draft Thread

    I was thinking this too. I wanted Danny Shelton coming out because he was lane clogger and athletic enough to offer some pass rush. Now, he is traded to Pats . I was also thinking of Star Lotulelei and how the Panthers took him as their first pick but Kwann Short, who was their 4th round pick??? was actually their star pick in that draft. Bottom line, maybe taking these big (polynesian) guys in the first round is not so smart and better off investing in LB or CB and take our Kwann Short later on who would be "insert name". Tomsula would know what an ideal DL would look like and the preferred talent and skills. If he thinks Vea can play in the NFL, then that would ease my concerns to a lesser degree lol.

    I'm a bit cautious on the Payne hype. Outside of the 2 bowl games, he is a good DT who is athletic and great passing rushing chops but was invisible from time to time and struggled when doubled teamed. Vea on the other hand is dominant against the run and according to most draft sites has the (some) ability to rush the passer. Given we have the worst run stopping D in the league but rank among the top in the pass rushing department, logic suggest we take the guy that immediately improve our weakest spot but who can also provide help in the collapsing the pocket. Getting another pass rusher is great but if we can't stop the run well... I certainly do not enjoy teams running up and down on our D.
