  1. How is our 2017 draft class doing?

    Ditka said fans believe that DL are the ones stopping the run but it's really the LBs. I think it has to be both. I agree with you, the DL has improved. But the ILB play with Brown and a much improved Foster are the real difference makers.
  2. How is our 2017 draft class doing?

    I never understood the immediate expectations for Allen, every top DL took a year or so to develop into impact players. He is right on schedule IMO, I expected little this year from him.. I also loved the Perine pick at the time but have to agree with the others. Unlike DL a RB is a position that you know right away, there have been plenty of impact rookie running backs. Unfortunately I see nothing exceptional in Perine. I think Anderson will be a really good player but with Smith playing so well it's a numbers thing. So far the best rookie was the only pick I didn't like, Nicholson. LOL.
  3. ESPN will be doing a 30 for 30 on the 87 Redskins

    No it's the argument against the position that these players were used and then cut and forgotten about ending up with nothing but memories. I just don't see that argument, they received a lot including playoff shares and the chance to fulfill their dreams. Again a movie and 2 documentaries dedicated to their story says they were hardly cast aside and forgotten.
  4. Per Schefter: Su'a Cravens Considering Retirement

    First off there is no reason to shout. Next you have no idea what kind of player Cravens can be, he could have been a ball hawking player who made game changing plays. He certainly had that potential. We don't know so your assumption that it's no big loss is premature. Next nobody claimed this one lost pick will "kill the franchise". I simply responded to your question asking why fans think this is a big deal. I already explained it to you. Second round picks are very valuable, you expect them to be solid starters. Know what you don't expect? Your second round starting safety to simply quit a week before the opener. I have no idea why you still don't get this.
  5. Per Schefter: Su'a Cravens Considering Retirement

    It's very simple. Good teams are built through the draft. That is what separates the Stealers from your Washington Redskins. Teams simply can not afford to spend a 2nd round pick on a player who simply walks away, it kills their ability to obtain and develop a talented roster. And for him to go through camp and then quit a week before the opener is simply bush league in so many ways. Puzzling you don't understand that. How long to the Redskins retain his rights? What if he has a change of heart once the money runs out and wants to sign with Dallas?
  6. Per Schefter: Su'a Cravens Considering Retirement

    Yeah I was one of those preaching "not so fast" when many said Cravens would be a big improvement. So let's hope Nicholson is the answer.
  7. Per Schefter: Su'a Cravens Considering Retirement

    Can you stop acting like a 2nd round pick walking away from a starting position a week before the opener as if it's no big deal? Of course it's a big deal, he left the team scrambling and we are still wondering why this happened.
  8. Per Schefter: Su'a Cravens Considering Retirement

    I had heard on the radio that before the team did this he was still getting paid. If this is true that's pretty baffling to me. I also don't understand posters lecturing others on how they should react to all of this. This is our team, we care enough to post regular on a message board dedicated to following the team. So yeah when a highly regarded player that costs a valuable 2nd round pick walks away like this it's understandable that fans will have a reaction and an opinion. I don't see anything wrong with that at all.
  9. Redskins Rams Post Game Assessments

    Exactly my point. I'm stunned more people don't see it this way.
  10. Redskins Rams Post Game Assessments

    But this isn't what happened. It was offsetting penalties. So they weren't backed up as a result of a single penalty against them, they had to take it right where it was caught.
  11. Redskins Rams Post Game Assessments

    Of course, because virtually every kick off is fielded inside the 5 and not at the 30.. That's hardly the receiving team's fault.
  12. Redskins Rams Post Game Assessments

    You don't think that starting on your own 2 after fielding a kickoff returning involving offsetting penalty is unfair? That's an incredibly severe penalty. Glad to hear it, I assure you that is not my intention. Peace.
  13. Redskins Rams Post Game Assessments

    I thought I was the only one who never saw that special in Todd Gurley. Well I saw a bit of it yesterday. But still not convinced he is more than above average. There are a lot of damned good running backs in this league.
  14. Redskins Rams Post Game Assessments

    Oh stop being so touchy. There is no question in my mind had it happened against us you would have a different take. Instead of acknowledging this you get all upset and call it a personal attack which is was not. So I went back and watched. Sure enough he said it was an "interesting enforcement" not "interpretation". And he did conclude that they got it right so my apologies. But I'm not going to apologize for pointing out that it is a totally unfair rule or enforcement or whatever.
  15. Redskins Rams Post Game Assessments

    Well you did say the guy in NY confirmed it was the right interpretation, then I pointed out that he only said it was an interesting interpretation. I also find it interesting that you claim the Rams didn't protest when that's highly unlikely, just because it wasn't shown on camera doesn't mean didn't mean it didn't happen. I think it's obvious that you would not so understanding had it been us setting up on the 3 instead of the Rams.
