    I'm tired of Charley Casserly's criticism

    I wish Snyder and B Allen could read. If they could, then maybe the articles the sports analysts write would sink in. Then B Allen would resign and leave out of shame, because we all know after Vinny, that Snyder has a learning disability and can't determine the difference between winning and losing and that means that a loser who fails terribly, will always have a job with Snyder and change will take forever. Maybe enough fans will not show up to the games and that will affect Snyder's pocketbook and be the catalyst for change. Everyone had enough? This Sunday, take a stroll at your local park and maybe enjoy a picnic instead of being tortured at Fed-Ex Field. No more blood pressure meds needed for this die-hard fan...simply stopped watching the games.

    Yes indeed...and as noted by Wildbunny and I stand corrected...I meant to say Allen as responsible for losing Fuller to get Alex because he blew it with Cousins. Gruden always has the same "problems to fix" attitude that never get fixed and I'm so sick of hearing the same press conferences...plus he lacks skills in clock management, play selection and most importantly...Motivation and getting the team prepared each week. Winning teams have motivated players that are mentally prepared and knowledgeable about their opponents...How often do you see Redskins swarming around the ball consistently? We were outplayed by Colts and I truly believe we have better talent, but they kicked our butts physically and mentally and we are supposed to be better than last year, so what happened in New Orleans where we dominated last year with a lot of backups only to do a Gruden give-away in the last 2 minutes. This year we looked like a high school team after a bye week again. Even if all the NFC East teams gift wraps a playoff spot for us this year, we are going no where. This is why I say fire Allen and Gruden now and build for next year and the future.

    You are 100% correct....my mistake, meant to say Allen....but still no changing my mind that Allen must go and Gruden is a break even coach. Thanks for the correction.

    What do you think after the Saints game? Our secondary is poor and 2 games so far (Indy and NO)where opposing receivers are running down the field free with no one covering them, for gimme TD's. Josh is all mouth and not worth the money or playing time. Rebuild and trade to get better...Allen gave up our best DB last year with Fuller for Alex because Allen blew it with Cousins. We need Allen gone and we should not have let McVay walk, so that Gruden could be released. Gruden's comment after the Saints game about problems that need to be fixed, we keep hearing that from game 1 to 16 each and every year. The fix needs to start with Allen and Gruden's release and trade Norman for a 7th rounder if you can find a taker. The Saints Michael Thomas hit the nail on the head...Norman is a clown that is all talk...the only thing he is good at. I went to every game from 1961 to 2002 and this owner and his decisions has made the Skins franchise a joke. We have some talented players that will be lucky to break even this year with this coach. Swearinger only DB above average talent in this terrible situation. Once again, this team was not ready after a bye week....coaching, coaching, coaching...when will it be realized?

    Evaluating Jay Gruden in 2018

    Is this another colossal blunder letting McVay walk and keeping Gruden as the HC. How many terrible losses after 2 weeks to prepare for a game do the fans have to sit and watch? Allen and Gruden must go ASAP. Does our talent really stink this bad? Colts have won 1 game after 5 weeks and that was against us at home, and now this embarrassment of a nationally televised game after a bye week and for a 2 game lead in the NFC East. Here is what the media said after the game, " Is this your NFC East leader? This?! Coming off of a win over Aaron Rodgers' Packers and a bye week, the division-leading Redskins were out of their depth against the NFC South-pacing Saints. Greg Manusky's defense entered Monday as league leaders in total defense (278) and passing defense (187.3), but Brees and the Saints eclipsed those totals in the first half, splicing and confusing Washington's secondary with everything from play-action screens to simple seams. The Redskins' defense extended early Saints drives with avoidable third-down penalties. Alex Smith was indecisive late on throws all evening and the ones he eventually unfurled often landed off target. Adrian Peterson followed his first 100-yard game of the season with an absolute dud. Nothing went well for the 'Skins, who were run out of the building by halftime. Time to face facts....Gruden and Allen will not get us to the playoffs or SB. Also, time for some high priced prima donna's to get traded like Reed and Norman....the latter is definitely not worth the money he's being paid...all mouth and less talent! Even with losses, Cousin's has been putting up the numbers...another Allen failure. Eagles and Rams go from last to first in 1 year...Redskins constantly at the bottom. Gruden's comment after the 43-19 loss "we have some things to fix"...don't we always?...all season long year after year? Fix this … fire Gruden and Allen, before the seats and fanbase totally disappear.

    ES Coverage: 2018 Week 5: Redskins at Saints

    Redskins coach comments " we have got some things to fix".....Yes, like firing Gruden and Allen. After a bye week with two weeks to prepare...its time for change.....and we let McVay go to the Rams...Allen needs to go ASAP. Here is the latest media comment on the Redskins.....3. Is this your NFC East leader? This?! Coming off of a win over Aaron Rodgers' Packers and a bye week, the division-leading Redskins were out of their depth against the NFC South-pacing Saints.

    Welcome to the Washington Redskins Troy Apke S Penn St

    think he would be available in later rds as he was the #2 safety at Penn St. and Marcus Allen was #1 at Penn St. and still available. I would have taken Kyzir White in a heartbeat. He must be a development project and a Special teams player 1st year in their plans. Guy does show speed though.

    2018 Draft Day Thread

    Upset they didn't pick Kyzir White as I think Apke would have been there in later rd's if you want a development project. Don't know if I like this pick but I guess he could contribute on special teams right off the bat.
  9. Here is a stat on ESPN website and why Bruce Allen's firing should be the first point of business: the result is that the Redskins now have only one player left from their eight-member class of 2014, and just six out of 17 players combined from the 2015-16 draft classes (run by former general manager Scot McCloughan). All 10 members of last year's class remain. They have four players remaining from the 2010-13 classes.
  10. Another reason Allen should be fired...here are some stats from our draft picks as noted on ESPN website: " the result is that the Redskins now have only one player left from their eight-member class of 2014, and just six out of 17 players combined from the 2015-16 draft classes (run by former general manager Scot McCloughan). All 10 members of last year's class remain. They have four players remaining from the 2010-13 classes." This is no way to build a team through the drafts with Allen.
  11. With the 53rd pick in Rd 2, Allen chose Cravens... and for that we get to move up 4 picks Rd 4 (109) and lose pick (113),up 7 picks Rd 5(142) and lose pick (149) and get a 163rd Rd 5 pick...all for a 2nd rounder #53 that should be a starter. Nice job doing your homework Allen...as Cravens did the same bull in college at USC. What a waste of a 2nd rd. pick and what a waste of a team President. Take a hike Allen as you have botched too many signings and non-signings and can't figure how to build a team. Go to school with the Rams and Eagles and see how its done.
  12. Now that T Solder from Patriots signed with the Giants, their other T Fleming is visiting the Cowboys....What is up with our OL that we can't get visits Washington? Our OL was eat up with injuries...how about some depth? Take off your blinders Allen!!! And how about Pouncey to replace Spencer Long! Whats going on and stop sleeping!
  13. Yeah, put a second punter on the roster as our punter gets too tired from all the kicking during our games. I realize he won't be on the final roster but how about looking at the quality FA's on the market, or keeping at least some of our starters. Remember all the injuries we had to our OL last year?....and now 2 failed physicals this free agency period and both were Redskins.....Great strength and conditioning job by our staff. Seems we always are in the top 5-10 for injuries year after year. Snyder please sell the team so that you and Allen can take an extended vacation. You have ruined a great franchise and made it a laughing stock for front office management over the last 2 decades.
  14. Why didn't we make a play for OL Justin Pugh or T Nate Solder , or DB Tyrann Mathieu , or C Ryan Jensen, or DL Richardson ... Dontari Poe ....Suh, or CB Kyle Fuller...or any of the pro-bowl players. We picked up WR Paul Richardson and paid big money to someone who wasn't a starter and his career high was 730 yards...even Richardson stated that he was shocked with the Redskins offer, but we didn't even look at Jordy Nelson. Why do we always get the lower rung quality players without even interviewing the pro bowlers. We should have tons of cap space considering the lack of pro bowl players on our roster (2-3) unless some idiot is overpaying average and below average talent....Wonder who that could be? Thank Goodness we re-signed Brown....he was leading the NFL in tackles before his injury with 3 games left and this is what you get for signing previous pro bowl talent. We have to add Spencer Long also to the list of players lost even with our lack of OL depth. This team has too many holes to sit and watch other teams sign the all the decent players and we can't rebuild this years draft with just 7 picks that includes 2 7th rd and no 3rd round. We needed Fuller who Allen gave away with our 3rd. round pick to a team that was getting rid of Smith anyway. Intelligent panic move due to blowing off Cousins long term for cheap money, 2 years ago. Mistakes lead to more mistakes compounded by someone who should have been fired years ago.
  15. So far Richardson WR is only pickup off free agency....We have lost Cousins, Murphy, Grant and Breeland.....Grant had great hands. Fuller was given away in the trade for Smith as well as our 3rd rd. pick.....WHY is Bruce Allen still with the Redskins and what has he accomplished as far as building our team...a losing record? We are going to continue to lose with this maniac and Snyder sits with his thumb up his rump to keep his brains from falling out. We are constantly digressing......while the Eagles and Rams can make changes and go from the bottom to the playoffs and SB trophy in 1 year. Kiss my tickets goodbye and HTTR (Hell to the Redskins). Such a dysfunctional franchise.
