  1. Only smart if they hold him out all season. Useless piece of trash receiver.
  2. Given recent events, possible ankle sprain means torn achilles and shattered all the bones. Not fixable. Amputation being scheduled.
  3. ****. Samaje showed up. Great run.
  4. Nice move from Payne to get to the inside snd thenmade sure Darnold went down. I like it.
  5. MMQB: How Su'a Cravens fell apart..

    Lots of interesting bits in the article. Had never thought about how furious Swearinger must be for buying the jersey number ($75,000!) and then Su'a doing a DB Cooper with the cash after 1 preseason game Also clear that he was done here within the locker room and could never have come back into the fold. It's a shame, because if he is genuinely locked in to NFL football this time then he will ball out at Denver. He may be soft but he's a damn talented football player. Time will tell I guess.
  6. Official 2018 Redskins Training Camp/Preseason Thread

    Calmed down after last week's disappointment. Still think the running game is the key to what kind of a season we have but with a healthy OL we should EXPECT it to be better than last year. How much better is kinda the question. We shall see. This roster started last season like a bit of a freight train and we were all optimistic until the injuries killed us. We've massively upgraded the DL so teams can't run it down our throats anymore so there's no reason to think we can't be a decent team, although it's hard to argue Guice wouldn't elevate us to be better. Let's see what the season brings. I'm done with the negativity now though until the Skins start piling the misery on us in October/November GAMEDAY IS NOW. HTTR
  7. Scuba Diving

    That's frustrating but at least things are still progressing. What a pain in the neck though, hopefully you'll get it sorted reasonably soon!! I'm determined to get diving again next year - thinking maybe somewhere in Caribbean for Easter holidays (I'm a teacher). Need to have a proper look though to see where would be good at that time of year.
  8. You just cursed us for freaking Matt Jones to run up 250 yds and 3 TDs on us both games now.
  9. Yep, I'm on board with this train of thought. Not sure whether it's through genuine belief or clinging to the only straw of hope I have for the Skins right now though. It's not a guaranteed career defining/ending injury, but it could be. Seen plenty of soccer players do their knee and never be the same again, however that's a different sport and more importantly, I really want Guice to come back swinging. Not just for the Skins, but for him too. He's a good dude who has had to deal with adversity his whole damn life, kid just can't catch a break.
  10. No comparison to ST21 but it's potentially pretty similar to RG3 at least.
  11. You cannot be ****ing serious. Absolutely devastated. The season is well and truly over now. I never thought we'd win the SB or anything, but thought we'd at least be competitive in most games. Now we're going to be a ****ing embarrassment and national laughing stock. Again. I'm so mad right now, this just isn't normal. Every injury we get seems to be season ending to a key player, or a key backup who is playing because the key player is injured already. It's absolutely pathetic. What even is the point of the Redskins? Seriously can't believe this. RG3 was the last player to generate this kind of buzz in the fanbase... he comes in, takes the league by storm, breaks all kinds of records and then blows his knee out in the first playoff game (Which we were looking good to win) comes back a bust. Guice doesn't even make it through limited snaps in Week 1 of damn preseason. I'm just pissed I've already paid for Gamepass. I already don't even care about the season now, it's just going to be humiliating. It's not even just the loss of Guice the player, it's the loss of Guice's role in the system. Having a run game was the only think stopping us from being a pretty decent Offense. We need a run game to open up the pass game. Alex needs a run game to thrive. The whole thing is totally blown for the entire system on Offense. I'm going to stop before this turns into an essay. Man this ****ing sucks.
  12. Gameday Thread: Redskins @ Patriots

    IT'S GAMEDAY. Tonight is obviously pretty irrelevant, but it does mean it's nearly time for the real deal season again. For me, I want to see Guice get some carries, I want to see what the DBs look like (especially the backups in this case) and I want to see how the 1st string WR group looks for the few snaps they'll play, and I want to see what some of the new guys have got, especially Tim Settle who might well get a decent number of minutes. Mostly, I want to see a Redskins team led by Alex Smith - I've been sick of KC for a couple of years now. It's been so refreshing to have an off-season free from QB drama, so now it's time for Alex to start putting it on the field (for at least one possession ) Hail to the Redskins. EDIT - Agree with SkinsGuy, the most important thing to see is a clean bill of health at the end of the game though.
  13. Annual "Where Do I Watch Games Thread"

    I do the same with soccer over here. Works for me too, so I guess it's fairly universal. As I'm in the UK I don't need to do that for the Skins though - Gamepass for me. Works out just under £10 per game which is slightly expensive imo, but worth it for me compared to finding a stream as I'm a teacher so not able to watch the late kick off games live, but with Gamepass, I can watch it when I get in from work the following day.
  14. For the fact nerdz...

    Nah, I'm with the other dude. It doesn't mean anything except telling Guice subtly to keep working and that he hasn't made it yet. Guice plays angry, you put that chip on his shoulder and he will come out swinging. Dude thrives on adversity. He's never had it easy and that's what drives him. The depth chart before 1st pre-season game means absolutely nothing, and it's not about mind games. Good coaches know which buttons to push to keep their guys motivated and focused.
