  1. I'd like to see a weekly player snap-count, broken down by formation/plays.
  2. I'm English, but never drink tea. I'm 6'5" tall, but can't play basketball. I'm in my fifties, and listen to hardcore techno, gabba and speedcore. I love zombie films/computer games, but don't eat brains.
  3. Interesting what Gruden said about the NT position, (he's old school and called it nose guard). He seems to be happy with the four guys we already have; Matt Ioannidis, Joey Mbu, A.J. Francis and Phil Taylor. He did mention McGee in that group, but then dismissed him as an more of an end. Maybe I'm reading it wrong, but it seemed like both times he said Phil Taylor's name, it was almost as an afterthought. Unless an FA becomes available or an UDFA steps up, we appear to already have our starting NT.
  4. Not a lot of info about him out there. 6' 3 1/2", 298lbs UDFA center signed by the Steelers last year. Spent the year on IR.
  5. Only a five hour difference over here, but late games are still brutal. I usually drink lots of coffee and pre-warn my workmates to stay out of my way on my "zombie" days. Two hours sleep can make you kinda cranky, especially after a divisional loss.
  6. I don't see much of a change overall. We're probably better against the run but with a weaker pass rush.
  7. Good point on Elway. I would prefer someone brought in from outside the organisation, but don't really know who. If they do hire Doug Williams then I would obviously hope that it's a great success, but am not convinced.
  8. I don't want Doug Williams as the GM. I am a bit concerned about how extensive his scouting resume actually is, but more than that, I want to remember him as a Redskins hero. The image of him in the superbowl. hobbling around throwing touchdowns for fun is one that still makes me smile. I don't want to remember him as the guy who got sacked and smeared even though he was just implementing Bruce's failed master plan. I realise that Doug and Bruce may turn out to be the best GM/overlord combo in NFL history, but I doubt it. I also realise that 'sacked and smeared' sounds a bit pervy, but you know what I mean. Just want to add that I'm not completely sure that Bruce is the bad guy in all this, Scot's drinking may well have become a major problem. I was just thinking worse case scenario.
  9. Happy 50th Anniversary Hap. Just thought I'd share a bit of 50 year old nostalgia, (cue the cascading string music). Cost of Living 1967Yearly Inflation Rate: USA 2.78% Yearly Inflation Rate: UK 2.7% Year End Close Dow Jones Industrial Average: 905 Average Cost of new house: $14,250.00 Average Income per year: $7,300.00 Average Monthly Rent: $125.00 Gas per Gallon: 33 cents Average Cost of a new car: $2,750.00 Movie Ticket: $1.25 Polaroid Camera: $50.00 Parker Pen Set: $11.95 The Federal Minimum Wage is increased to $1.40 an hour. And in astronomy; NASA launches the Lunar Orbiter 3 spacecraft during February of 1967. The main purpose of the Lunar Orbiter 3 mission was to photograph the surface of the Moon in order to find and analyze potential safe landing sites for future missions in the Surveyor and Apollo programs. The cone-shaped craft also measured radiation and micro-meteoroid impact. The mission lasted for a total of 264 days and it ended in October after taking 149 medium resolution and 477 high resolution photographs.
  10. Well he certainly talks the talk, I don't think he could've given a better interview. I'm sure the QB situation must have been discussed during the interview process. Would he really have signed with us if he thought that McCoy may well be the guy throwing to him?
  11. A few weeks ago I was convinced that a LTD was going to get done, but in light of recent news/leaks my confidence is waning somewhat. With Scot gone there's one less voice in the sign-him camp IMO and Bruce's voice is now even stronger. It seems that if Bruce want's Kirk signed, then he gets signed. If he don't, he don't. Snyder could step in and overrule him (or even fire him), but I think that's unlikely. I believe that if an acceptable deal is offered, Kirk will sign it. This whole 'I won't sign with Bruce there' theme will be swept away as just another ambiguous /false leak. As others have speculated, I reckon that 24-25m per with a big chunk guaranteed would probably be acceptable. I'm sure that all parties involved already know what the likely acceptable deal will look like, but some amount of posturing is almost obligatory. My fear is that 24m-25m is too much for the frugal Mr Allen and he thinks the drop-off to McCoy is not enough to justify paying it. He could also get some shiny new draft picks to play with as well. Right now, I'm still thinking that we will get a LTD sorted, but maybe I'm just fooling myself because that is what I want to happen. As far as the Scot sacking goes, I've changed my mind on it a few times already, with two contrasting scenarios considered: A: Scot's drinking became an increasing problem. Bruce took more and more decision making away from the GM while the team was getting him help, but it eventually became untenable. It was clear that Scot was getting worse and it was agreed that he had to go. The team have said nothing publicly out of respect, allowing Scott to make a statement when and how he wants. B: Bruce wanted things done his way and a power struggle ensued which ended with Scot being sacked. The drinking, while not a problem professionally, used in a well timed 'leak' to smear the ex-SMGM. Scot may be restricted in what he's allowed to say about the team, so a statement may not be forthcoming. Maybe it's a bit of both, maybe there's a completely unknown variable involved. One thing's for sure, you know that we're all buying these guy's autobiographies when they come out. The truth is out there.
  12. I'm not sure if he would take the job, even if offered. But I really like the thought of Mayock coming here. He don't seem like the kind of man to be Bruce's **** though.
  13. @Burger35 you may be correct. But like ZRagone above, I also forgot this was the FA thread and apologise. Probably best to not derail it further.
