  1. Let's All Get Behind Alex Smith!

    Veteran guy like Alex with jay... the plays will write themselves. Jays experience with cousins will help. We're going to be one of those teams that needs the running game and defense to be reliable. I say reliable, not great, because neither of those areas are likely to shock the world. But the offense should be interesting, and clever enough to get a winning score. Don't get blown out. Don't get under 50 yds rushing in a game, and Jay and Alex will put together something for the winning score. For whatever reason, Alex is a guy I trust on the field, in any situation. I mostly felt that way about Kirk, but he did have a couple bonehead moments. The kneel that should have been a spike comes to mind. Still love Kirk, and I do wish he was still here building with us, but if there was any way out of this, it was doing exactly what we did. They wasted no time getting this guy. And enough with the FO hate. It was a mess but it's in the past. Can we just admit that we were all skeptical about a super long term deal for Kirk, even 2 years ago? (The only thing I HATE is that dumbass announcement about how much they offered him, I mean why the hell??). It's almost like they knew they screwed up and said ok let's get a good qb and do it now. And they did. Qbs are moving all over the league the last few days. Can we say we got the best of all those deals? Time will tell, but trust is an important thing, and Mr Smith is about as reliable and trustworthy as it gets. I'm on board. Make some plays fellas.

    I thought defense wins championships Or maybe it still does, I dunno I'm confused, these teams are moving the ball at will. Difference is, eagles can run it

    Maybe they should throw to gronk lol
  8. This is literally the exact thing we were saying about our team when Scot came aboard. Then something happened with Scot. Whatever. Point Is, the statement above makes it sound like its so easy. OF COURSE teams want lots of draft picks, good rookies and good free agents. Even the evil Dan Snyder and Allen understand this. It's just really really hard to make all those things happen at once. And here we are in a thread assuming that the ****ing browns are the team to finally break the mold and succeed. Great QB play and a decent defense is what succeeds. And if your QB isn't Tom Brady, then do your best to make your defense awesome (jags). The browns have the same philosophy as everyone else. Their extra draft picks will help their odds, but that's it. It's more about coaching, scheming, adjusting, and the players themselves. So enough about this so called super front office the browns have. Even dumbass Bruce allen can wind up looking like a winner if we have good qb play and a good defense....actually.. both those things were happening at the beginning of the season, remember? Stay the course. **** this "lose like the browns do" nonsense, because that's all it sounds like to me. Unless were saying "hire the best front office guys", as if there's perfect office guys just waiting out there to get hired. Disclaimer I'm watching UFC and drinking. HTTR 😁
  9. You know Janet Jackson will be there. You know they will tease a booble coming out. It will be hilarious. At least that's how I would book it. But really, he's a guy a went 180 on since his goofy pop days. Dude's super talented.
  10. Gotcha. Wasn't aware of the GB thing. Still, I wonder why the browns were the team to catch the suddenly available top execs. I suppose it's that sexy amount of draft capital they have. Also, do these guys just seem like top execs because GB has had some of the best QB play in the league? Anyway, I never was laughing at the poor browns, but if I was, I'm not suddenly scared of what they're doing now. They're AFC, I don't really care, but hell, I hope they do turn it around, It would be interesting. I'm just not on board with modeling after them, especially if it involves losing literally almost all of your games for 2 years. Believe it or not, the skins are close to contending. We don't need this nuke the team nonsense. .....as long as we have a QB ;(
  11. So, if what the browns are doing in the front office is so brilliant, why hasn't everyone else done it? Football players you have to draft or buy with a salary cap in mind, but suddenly the worst team in the league by a mile is making genius FO moves? They just made some phone calls and boom, best FO in the league all of the sudden? We're these top execs just waiting around for the BROWNS to call them?? I'll believe it when I see results. I get the structure and culture change. We tried it with Scot, then **** happened, but then again, where is he now? Did Dan and Bruce successfully drag his name through the mud, or did we overvalue him simply because he's not Bruce allen. Are these new browns guys so great, or are they just getting excited because they...ironically...arent football guys. (I agree with going for it in that regard: run it like a machine or a business). But still, I'm skeptical. It's the browns man. Talk about a losing culture. I suppose if it's going to turn around somewhere, it's starts with guys in an office. I just don't see what's so special about these particular guys. Even if their new structure is so great, they've got a looooong hill to climb. Kind of like the jags have been climbing and we're doing now.
  12. This discussion happens every year. "I wish we lost more cuz draft picks". Stop. It doesn't happen. Teams don't lose on purpose in the NFL. Ever. Nope, not even the Colts that one time. It's unrealistic and a silly thing to wish for. Teams lose because they suck. It's not just their talent, they lose in the 4th quarter to teams who know how to close games. That's a thing you get with experience, not sucking so hard that you get to throw a bunch of high draft picks at your ****ty team. Winning helps too, believe it or not. Even if it's 7 or 9 wins. You just have to be patient. And if the team is 8 ish wins for 10 years, Oh well. You still did it the right way. Now the front office pieces on the other hand, Oh yeah, I'm with you there. We were so close to being at least 'normal' in that regard. If the browns do in fact have a great fo now, then that's certainly going to be an exciting draft for them. But I don't envy their position at all. We just have to keep grinding with what we have. It's tough. Wishing we were the browns right now is literally loser talk.
  13. Will Cousins Play For The Skins In 2018

    I believe he stays. I'm no expert on contracts but I believe enough guaranteed money or enough of a bonus or whatever will seal it. I think Kirk, going forward, would be most comfortable going forward with the team he knows. I think the team knows this and agrees. They have to know losing Kirk in some sort of hopeless way just cannot happen. In other words, the off-season negotiations are actually for real this year. Whatever happens, I hope it's not losing Kirk over a few million dollars (in NFL money). That would be sad.
  14. Redskins vs Giants Prediction Thread: 2017 Locking the Closed Door

    Ayy all this negativity lol. Going 8 and 8 ish for 3 years is something we were begging for lately. I'm sorry we didn't skyrocket to 13 wins yet yall. This team is alright. Miles ahead of the giants. Injury riddled season. Show who we are and stomp 3 bad teams in a row to finish. 8-8, watch out for us next year. That's what everyone besides redskins fans would say about our team. Obvious x factor is cousins, but otherwise, let's slow down on the typical doom and gloom. Anyway, 27-17 skins, garbage time td from Eli for that 17.
