    Redskins receiving corp is beginning to shape up

    Still don't know why we did that. So who do we cut now? Perine? Do we put Thompson on IR when we're in the playoff race? Seems like such poor timing to bring back a RB.

    2019 Comprehensive Draft Thread

    Anyone know of any 2018 cutups of the TE Irv Smith?

    Safety Clinton Dix to the skins

    Oh, didn't realize HaHa's prospective contract numbers were talked about in the off-season. I did read HaHa saying he and the Packers had already talked and he didn't expect a deal to happen. And yeah, going with someone 5 years younger would be really tempting, that's a good point. Now this is too early, but it's possible Nicholson continues to improve and seeing what the coaches are having HaHa do, Nicholson goes "Oh...I get it now". We'd have Nicholson for 2 more years at dirt cheap, and he's even younger. Who knows. This off-season will be interesting, and I'm just really happy we have options that I like at safety.

    Not quite, we'd gain some breathing room with an extra 8.5 million in cap space. But then we'd also have a corner problem.

    17 million is not much. These guys are 2019 FA's and don't count against that projected cap. Key players are Jamison Crowder, Preston Smith, HaHa Clinton Dix, Adrian Peterson, and Shawn Lauvao Backups are Ty Nsekhe, Pernell McPhee, Maurice Harris, Tony Bergstrom If we re-sign Harris, Lauvao, McPhee, and Bergstrom for cheap, that'd leave us with just 12-13 million left. Nsekhe is probably gone (that's why we drafted Geron Christian in the 3rd), but what about the others? Next off-season is also when we should think about giving extensions to these stellar players before they hit FA in 2020: Brandon Scherff, Matt Ioannidis, and DJ Swearinger. We probably want to work out a deal for at least one of these guys. That deal would eat into the 17 million as well. P.S. If we had Kirk Cousins cap hit right now instead of Alex Smith's cap hit, we would not have had the cap room to make the trade for HaHa Clinton Dix.

    Are you at the stadium? On TV, a lot of plays the safeties are off the screen and I have no idea how they're rotating in coverage.

    That does not sound good. That sounds like the opposite of good. Ouch.

    You misinterpreted, if they're aggressive in Free Agency, that would then cancel out any comp picks they were going to get. So if they're planning on being aggressive in FA, then getting a draft pick via trade for someone they couldn't get a comp pick for anyways makes sense.

    He never played corner in college or with the Packers as far as I know.

    It's possible the Packers plan on being aggressive in Free Agency? That would nullify the comp pick from him leaving.

    That makes me feel better. I'm happy we have Clinton-Dix, but still want Montae to keep developing through playing time.

    Next Day Thread: Redskins vs. Giants

    I'm liking the growing rapport between Doctson and Smith. Smith seems to now feel comfortable throwing to Doctson on certain routes or looks. Question, what has to happen with Doctson in the remaining 9 games for us to pick up his 5th year option? That decision happens in the off-season. Right now I'm not seeing anything to indicate that happens. That said, he's figuring out how to contribute, and I'm eager to see what his next 9 games look like. What I'm confused by is how we aren't doing the quick outs to the sideline for a few yard passing gain. We're talking about dink and dunk, but isn't that a staple? We did it with Kirk. There was a 3rd and 1 where we had I think Mo Harris out wide, the corner was playing like 8 yards off. Instead his route went vertical, Smith went elsewhere, and we didn't convert. Shouldn't that have been an audible and an easy conversion?

    Official 2018 Flex Scheduling and Playoff Tracker Thread

    I read your post initially and was still like "Naaah, we won't get flexed to a Saturday game". Welp, I was wrong.

    Press Release: #REDSKINS Quotes - Gruden

    That's going to earn him the snaps to keep him on the field. Also makes it seem like he "wants it". That missed pass on the deep shot at the end of the half wasn't an incompletion for lack of trying. Doctson had a full layout.

    The Offensive Line Thread

    I think the disparity is shocking. I expected better, I didn't expect THAT much better. I think it shows how much Roullier would have to improve to be a competent LG. And that's a shocking amount.
