    Can we stop pretending now?

    Someone will win the doom and gloom roulette game eventually and start the thread that immediately proceeds the downfall of the season, but considering that it's not the case just yet I wonder what the etiquette is for repeat attempts. Will definitely need to work in shifts.

    What happened to Chris Cooley?

    Honestly the co-host here, who seems like a nice guy trying his best, just doesn't have anything but cliche's and sort of nothing-speak. I'd kill for just Cooley (and maybe someone else sharp with X's and O's), All 22 video on the screen, and a telestrator. I don't know how much demand there is for really being able to mainline some serious analysis, but on the old radio show it seemed to get the audience engaged, so I kind of wish this wasn't a Redskins funded endeavor, and instead set up a Patreon or something and really go nuts on Youtube (although then he probably couldn't use any footage?).

    Next Day Thread: Redskins vs. Packers

    It might (certainly did) irritate them at the time, but if forcing a punt from essentially the same spot didn't get them over it, then they're just the type of mentally weak team that you SHOULD beat.

    Redskins to sign Adrian Peterson per NFL.com

    I have no idea how it will play out, but I at least don't see a lot of risk. What are we jeopardizing, upsetting last year's continuity in the run game? It's Guice's job 12 months from now.

    Gameday Thread: Redskins @ Patriots

    Correlation doesn't imply causation my man.

    The "New" Way of Tackling - An Analysis

    Yeah, going to level with you that no one is going to buy that this is a positive for anything other than human safety (which obviously is paramount). Trying to spin this as a tactical improvement that always would have been the best course of action rule or no rule isn't really going to work because it doesn't make sense. If this were an e-sport, it wouldn't be a metagame change that anyone would make. Doesn't mean that it isn't still the best decision for everyone involved, of course.
  7. This thread is going to continue to be yawn-inducing until someone wagers something interesting...

    Official 2018 Redskins Training Camp/Preseason Thread

    From the horse's mouth... here's hoping. https://twitter.com/JDoc_son/status/1024705068149485568 Edit: apparently I'm too dumb to embed the tweet, if someone wants to oblige...
  9. The argument that person A often sides with management of his own team he's a fan of in contract disputes with a player, and the argument that person A sides with all management over all players, are not one in the same. Seems like a re-frame of the conversation (or we were just never talking about the same thing anyway...) Put it this way, no one gives a damn about Dan Snyder or his wallet, if there was a new owner tomorrow, and a new contract to be signed for a player on Saturday, a fan of the team interested in winning would want that contract not to have a crippling effect regardless. Whether fans are 1) good at assessing player abilities and 2) good at assessing contract values versus the abilities of said player is up for debate, but I don't believe this is a hard concept. I don't think you'd advocate that going forward, the 'Skins should just resign every player at 120% market value because hey, who care's about Dan's money.
  10. There's a counter attitude to this that says you should reward good players and good teams by following them specifically, and that shunning that as "frontrunning" is just enabling bad owners to further exploit fans' loyalties. That might be true, but it's also sort of the antithesis of what makes sports awesome. On top of that, I have little patience for anyone telling me how big of a fan they are of Lebron, and followed him to teams X, Y, and Z. Not an interesting perspective for me, to cherry pick winners and follow them around, no matter how dire being "stuck" with my team may seem at times.
  11. That's because a players contract being exceptionally high (and the possibility of not only it being high, but being undeservedly so) could have a direct negative effect on your team's prospects. You could say that's a view lacking in perspective, and it wouldn't necessarily be wrong. I know I wouldn't mind drawing a salary above and beyond my actual value to my company, but say an investor might feel differently. We're all basically emotional investors in Redskins stock. And there's also the fact that players come and go, but the team always stays (unless you're San Diego!)...
  12. I'd say it's a partially for the player, partially for the team itself. I'm all for guys getting whatever they can get it is what I'd do. But right now, would you bet on Leveon Bell or The Steelers , in terms of record, going forward?
  13. Actually I think the parameters of the game will keep this in check. There will be some of it, but also moneyball clubs that win without dumping huge amounts into one or two players.
  14. We'll see if purchasing Cousins nets the Vikes a Superbowl, if it does it will undoubtedly be worth it, but I feel like the premise of "the money is done", but also having a contract year in 2020 are a bit incongruent. I know we ****ed it up bad not getting a deal done, and done early for whatever silly hangups we had over it, but I dunno that I would wan't to be in on the deal he has now. Maybe others feel differently. 2018 will pretty much hinge on Smith at least managing somewhere near the ballpark of the quality QB play we have seen the last few years, and I do think he is up to it. And I don't think he needs Top 10 and Top 5 matching components across the board to do it, like some have said in some heavy backhanding. I think some of that comes honestly and some of it comes from missing the chance to really rub Dan's nose in it with a 4-12 Colt or Rookie QB season. Here's to whenever the games start.
  15. Welcome! Adonis Alexander Adonis Alexander is an NFL sized defensive back. Read about his chances of being drafted in the first round of the 2018 NFL draft. College: Virginia Tech #36 Position: Cornerback Height: 6-3 Weight: 193 40 Time: 4.92 Video Clemson, 2016. Notes Incredible body control. Amazing interception. Has a pro frame at 6-3 that he needs to fill out. Also, it is unlikely that his 40 time is still 4.92. Played safety in high school. Played safety as a freshman at Virginia Tech. Plenty of explosion in his legs. If he posts another 41 inch vertical, that will impress NFL scouts at the 2018 NFL Combine. Second team Freshman All-American, as a safety, 2015. Arrested on marijuana possession in April 2016. Suspended for 2016 season opener. Virginia Tech may consider moving Adonis Alexander back to safety in 2017. NFL Draft Board Breakdown The NFL Draft Board. Adonis Alexander has the frame NFL scouts dream of when they consider defensive backs. Half of the Seattle Seahawks All-Pro secondary is 6-3. From the Kevin King page. Daniel Jeremiah has Kevin King going to the Seattle Seahawks in the first round (of the 2017 NFL draft) with pick number 26. The Seattle Seahawks gravitate to bigger defensive backs, Richard Sherman 6-3 and Kam Chancellor 6-3. If an NFL team drafted Adonis Alexander as a cornerback, it would surprise some people. Alexander has the frame to play safety, and would make a great cornerback. But, cornerback requires a certain speed to keep up with the 4.22, 40, John Ross’s of the NFL. There are two things you can’t teach, height and speed. Although speed can be adjusted by focusing on fast twitch muscle fibers, there is no changing a person’s height. That works in favor of Adonis Alexander. Adonis Alexander’s Draft Prospectus Adonis Alexander has a full year of football in front of him. It would probably be best if Virginia Tech moved him to safety and he puts up All-American numbers. If he does that, his chances of getting drafted in the first round of the 2018 NFL draft increase dramatically. But, there is always a challenge. Taking a look at the 2017 NFL Draft Board, NFL teams favor cornerback over the safety position. For now though, WalterFootball.com has Adonis Alexander in the first round of his 2018 NFL mock draft. And that should motivate any college player. http://www.nfl.com/videos/up-to-the-minute/0ap3000000935390/Pelissero-A-potential-first-round-talent-will-enter-2018-Supplemental-Draft-this-summer&icampaign="search-video-adonis+alexander"
