  1. It is! That was around the time I was really coming into my knowledgeable fanhood...obviously I loved the Skins as a kid (thanks dad) but like many here around my age the Portis/Moss/ST trio were my first real favorite players. Before that it was the tail end of DG's career that I hung onto.
  2. I know it's tough to avoid the obvious "so was he or wasn't he a good pick at #5 overall and especially over Leonard Williams" debate that's been going on so long here. I was resigned to that when I started the thread. I just hope that at least some of the discussion can be about how freaking great he's looking right now, in a vacuum not related to his draft position. How long has it been since we've had an elite interior OL? Historically threads like this about non-skill position/non-QB players, and with in-depth breakdowns, don't really do numbers. Which makes sense. Personally as someone who isn't a coach, hasn't played in a long time, and was never what you'd call an X's and O's or positional technique genius...its interesting to me to see it broken down, and from someone who I'm pretty sure isn't a Redskins fan. The OL doesn't usually get much in-depth attention, other than broad characterizations of an entire OL unit in regards to yards gained and sacks given up, etc.
  3. Link To Article Fanrag isn't super far above Bleacher Report on the sports journalism totem pole, but the author (Brandon Thorn) is a pretty widely respected OL guy on Twitter who is constantly breaking down OL play. Not too much I can 'preview' here as there's lots of video clips used as examples in the article, but it's worth a click and a read. Details what makes Scherff a special OG, his unique skill-set, and where he's improved since he got into the league. Argues he should be an All-Pro pick this year.
  4. Do We Suddenly Have a Dominant Defense?

    We are leading the NFL in Least PA Pass Yards allowed...that's kind of amazing. Why? Are we crazy disciplined? We've played some really good running games already, but we aren't falling for the PA pass...is Zach Brown making that much a difference down the seam vs TE's on PA passes? Are we just that much more athletic on defense than we used to be?
  5. Man....Lis Franc for a big dude is bad news. They're going to have to be very cautious with him. Really sucks, he and Ionnidas have been crushing pockets.

    Why are we using a TO, weren't they about to get a delay of game?

    Didn't he get his leg down and then go out of bounds? That's the only reason the catch was in question in the first place, the sideline

    Gruden doesn't deserve this win. Stupid decisions. Still can't believe Tress just bombed that punt out of the endzone
  9. Game Day Thread - 49ers at Redskins

    His knee/leg is down, that counts as two feet. Its a catch
  10. Game Day Thread - 49ers at Redskins

    oh my god Pierre's knee is down, that's a ****ing catch
  11. Game Day Thread - 49ers at Redskins

    We're going to lose this game. Idiot ****ing punt, idiot play call to not put the 3rd down play in Kirk's hands
  12. Game Day Thread - 49ers at Redskins

    How do you not even attempt to pin them in front of the endzone?? That punt wasn't even ****ing close to the goal line, he meant to do that. stupid as hell

    Gotta trust your franchise QB to throw it there. Absolutely ****ing pathetic to call that play with the money we're paying this guy.

    Liked Perine picking through traffic there. Need a 1st down here men...don't care how
