  1. Common Kirk....I just don't know....

    Do Kirk's detractors in the Anybody But Kirk/ Not My QB/ Let's Not Pay Top Dollar For A 6-10 Ranked Guy coalition have a response for this post or are they going wait for developments in Philly? Keeping your powder dry now and hoping for a bad outing in Philly is definitely the smart call....:-)
  2. Jay Gruden: Buy or Sell 2017 edition

    Gruden came into Daniel Snyder's totally out of control nut house and seizes control by benching the megabust, insists on playing Kirk Cousins who blossomed into one of the league leaders and the hapless Skins start winning and you want to bail on Gruden? I guess we could do worse than Dan Snyder, one of you characters could own the Skins and be making the decisions. Mediocrity is an improvement for the Skins and we have Gruden to thank for it. I am hopeful this mediocrity is followed by excellence at some point despite the ownership.
  3. Redskins 49ers Post Game Assessments

    Passer rating over 100. QBR over 80. 300+ yards. 3 TDs. 1 INT on a deep throw on a 3rd and long that served as a 50-yard punt and 2nd leading rusher with 27 yards (only 7 behind their top rusher for the day). Kirk's critics don't know football. I don't know what they do know but they don't know football.

    Ridiculous...... utterly ridiculous.... you should stick to tooting your horn....
  5. Why has a female never played in the NFL?

    Girls are for sleeping with after the game, that is their role.
  6. Common Kirk....I just don't know....

    I might be wrong, but Dan Snyder might be convinced he needs Kirk Cousins long term and it is Cousins that needs convincing the Skins can win so he'll be willing to accept a long-term contract with the Skins. The defense holding its weight throughout the season might put Kirk in the mood to commit. I was very negative about the chances for a Cousins deal before the start of the season. I assumed the Skins were more than willing to give Kirk a Carr or Stafford type deal but Kirk wasn't willing to accept it in July preferring to consider options in free agency to commit to what has been a mismanaged franchise. The apparent resurgence of the Skins defense might prove a difference maker it the defense can sustain quality play this season. I assume Kirk will maintain his play and the questions for him is the rest of the team worth committing or should he go into free agency where he may have a chance to go to Pittsburgh or another team more likely to provide a Super Bowl vehicle for him.
  7. Chiefs v Redskins Post Game Assessments

    I need to rethink my positive Skins assessment then because Bayless should actually be named Clueless in my view.
  8. Got Dammit Doctson

    Whoa.... I pointed out what his coach probably pointed out to him he needed to use two hands to secure the ball. Don't project all that other stuff on me.
  9. The Positive Thread

    I agree the 2017 team is more balanced than 2016 or 2015 and because of that better. The defense is at least pretty good after being putrid. The running game looks somewhat improved but the passing game has fallen off. Kirk's doing his part but Doctson and Pryor need to get better but overall the team is more balanced and much improved. If Pryor and Doctson begin to pull their weight this team could be very good.
  10. Got Dammit Doctson

    Doctson should have had both hands on the ball. He dropped a TD that could have won the game. Lots of mistakes contributed to the loss but none as big as this mistake. I don't think Garcon gets high enough to grab it. I wish Garcon was on the team because Cousins needs more help from the WRs but I don't think Garcon makes this catch for other reasons.
  11. Do We Suddenly Have a Dominant Defense?

    There is no question the 2017 defense is improved over 205-2016 defenses but I agree their lack of discipline undermined their efforts by extending drives.
  12. Common Kirk....I just don't know....

    Cousins is a great QB, I really don't want to hear from any of his detractors and nitpickers today, Cousins is great. They don't have anything useful to say on the best days but today the really ought to shut up. DS/BA made a mistake letting Garcon get away. I think last night was a victory with Garcon helping Cousins sustain a few drives. Pryor makes so many mistakes and Doctson is a project also. Letting Jackson and Garcon both go might have been DS/BA big negotiation ploy with Cousins, it failed like so many other DS/BA initiatives. Doctson and Pryor both have to keep working and improving, they need to play better this year. If they do this team is capable of making a run in the playoffs.
  13. Chiefs v Redskins Post Game Assessments

    KC is a very good team, very good. Like others in the game thread, I think we missed Garcon. I appreciate the effort the team played hard. If Doctson secures that ball the Skins probably win the game. I am concerned about the injuries but hopefully, we'll get some good news. The 2017 defense is much better than the last couple of years. Got to get the WRs to perform and the Skins have a good team.
  14. Game Day Thread: #Redskins @ Chiefs

    Up by 3 on the road KC is way better than I expected at halftime. That said BA or DS were nuts to let both Garçon and Jackson go, they should've extended Garçon. The lack of a quality possession receiver lack Garcon is really hurting the Skins run their WCO. The offense has to answer.
  15. Game Day Thread: #Redskins @ Chiefs

    Painful drop. Can't count on Pryor in a ball control offense.
