  1. So cheap. Next PR will be about Hankins firing his agent. Very poorly played.

    Next Day Thoughts: Redskins vs. Cardinals

    We did what good teams should do... we beat an inferior opponent handily. Week 1, their house, dominated. @justice98 You say you've seen this movie before? Under Gruden, I haven't. I don't know why you try to make a point by bringing up the Raiders game, we lost damn near our whole D over the following weeks, you know this. Expectations aren't Super Bowl-or-Bust because of this game, but it was a huge breath of fresh air to have most of our off season optimism confirmed... usually we have to wait at least one week for the rust to get knocked off. -I said it all off-season, I prefer Alex to Kirk. His pocket awareness, ability to extend plays, and decision making is on a different level than Kirk. I'm not saying that I think he's better, but this is the skillset that I thought we were getting when we drafted RG, this is what I want in a QB. Sidenote- did anyone see Kirk's presser? In classic Kirk way, he threw some big jabs at this franchise. -Ryan Anderson showed very well. I was down on him this off-season big time, but he shut me right up. -Secondary was studly led by Dunbar. He's always had the physical tools, great to see him getting the mental part down also. Bashaud who? Sure, this wasn't Aaron Rodgers, but Bradford when healthy is a good QB. -I was happy to land AP, but had no idea that he'd do what he did. Watching him run, his patience and vision, is night and day compared to any RBs we've had for as long as I can remember. -I would knock the WRs, but we just didn't need to go to them this game. If we were down by a few scores and needed big plays and kept missing then it'd be a different story. In this one, the run game was in beast mode, Reed was being healthy Reed, and CT was consistently picking up chunk plays. Don't fix what ain't broke. -There were no second half woes as far as I'm concerned. Our D continued to shut it down through the majority of the 4th Q, all we had to do was run clock. Related, effing WaPo had the balls to write a column about how our "ridiculous" shut out-less streak continues. -Just stay healthy for the love of god. This is a good team. After back-to-back seasons as the most injured team, we have to have some positive karma coming our way...

    Redskins vs Colts Prediction Thread: Will the Redskins "Luck" Out?

    It would be so Redskins to immediately deflate the sails on us... But this is a new year! 27-16 good guys

    Let's All Get Behind Alex Smith!

    For a team that is notorious for losing game 1 in recent years, it would be pretty awesome to start 1-0 with the new QB. New QB, new RB, CT and Reed just returning this week, playing on the road against a tough defense; the chips are stacked against us.

    Cut-Down Day

    Hood over Taylor is a bad decision. Kelley and Perine doesn't make sense. Other than that, all bueno. Really hoping this Dunn kid takes the step that kalis and Catalina didnt.
  7. The last two seasons we were 31st and 32nd respectively. The year before was also bad, I believe we were in the high twenties. Your 3-year sample size is tainted. The difference is the Vigil actual covered very well. He was statistically the third best ILB in "passer rating when targeted" (Compton consistently sucked at everything).

    Hopkins and the Kicking Game?

    He's a good kicker, he's not the best, never will be, but he's consistently above average. Many just won't forgive him for the miss in the Bengals London game. Everyone's so quick to throw away good kickers because they somehow won't accept anything less than Vinatieri in his prime. I know the OP wasn't clamoring for him to be fired, but plenty were doing so in the game day thread. Look at how many teams have been in kicker purgatory for years (see: Bucs for prime example), it's not worth the gamble to cut ANOTHER good kicker.

    Official 2018 Redskins Training Camp/Preseason Thread

    What you're offering would be fair market value, maybe even above. Oakland is in a pinch right now, so if we propose an offer it should be below FMV. Preston Smith or Ryan Anderson and mid-round pick would be my offer, I wouldn't give up a 1st for him. I'd prefer to just re-sign Smith to a LTD and retain the draft pick being that we will need it.

    Annual "Where Do I Watch Games Thread"

    I'm in the same boat as @redskinss... I just moved back up north and this is my first season without CSN. Any help via this thread or a PM would be extremely appreciated.

    Redskins to sign Adrian Peterson per NFL.com

    Ha, at 33, RBs are usually well into their retirement. 2000 carries is the magic "cliff" number and he surpassed that seasons ago... Still, I think he has a bit left in the tank. TW has always been a great leader, but now he's blocking for his buddy, a fellow Oklahoma alum, a future pro-bowler, a legend, you better believe he'll have this line blocking to the best of their abilities.

    MMQB: How Su'a Cravens fell apart..

    Three completely different and independent players and situations... To paint them all with the same brush, as you've done, is flat out ignorant.

    What to do with LG

    Misspoke, meant LG, not C. If you compare anyone to the Cowboys they'd be a "laughing stock." Good thing is that the team with the best OL isn't crowned the champ before the year starts. I'm not a fan of letting Scherff walk, but I can see a scenario where we'd be better off to do so. Currently, we have a good amount invested in this OL yet we are consistently below average in rushing. I'm pretty sure that I saw a stat where we were one of the worst rated teams at yards-before-contact. I know that many believe the problems are due to our RBs' lack of vision and talent, but I think its an OL issue. It becomes obvious to me on 3rd or 4th and shorts when we get pushed off the line and stuffed. I think it's hard for many to understand or believe that our OL isn't great because we have some big names and an apparent "great" OL coach, but the truth is that we aren't seeing the translation on the field. My point in this ramble is that I may not have a problem with letting Scherff walk if we do it correctly- use a high draft pick on IOL, and use the Scherff savings on upgrading the black hole which is Luavao... Also, comp picccck! (kidding). If all goes according to plans, we'd have an upgrade at LG and a pretty good RG, which I'd consider an overall upgrade. The OL needs to work as a whole, the less amount of broken links in the chain, the better the results. If Catalina or Kalis or any young buck for that matter take over LG and play well, then scratch all of above and sign up Scherff long term.

    What to do with LG

    Because he got $7.1M/yr... Knowing the guys we'll need to re-sign, we couldn't take that plunge. Just for kicks: Scherff: Moses: TW: For the record, they have three studs, not five. La'el has been straight up bad and they have a rookie at LG... EDIT- thanks for the correction @redskinss, I wrote Cowboys C, but meant LG.

    Official 2018 Redskins Training Camp/Preseason Thread

    You think the team doesn't have tons of extra shorts and shirts at every practice? It's more surprising that they'd have pads when everyone is in shorts... It's about time we bring back the debate of TW to LG and Nsekhe to LT! Kidding. I'm in the same boat... Two broken links in the chain, especially right next to eachother, unfortunately outweighs three pro bowlers.
