  1. The Defensive Line Thread - Who makes the cut?

    Ben Standig‏Verified account @BenStandig 16m16 minutes ago Gruden says he "loves" what he's seen from Terrell McClain to date. There's an adjustment coming from a different scheme in Dallas. Things that make you go hmmmm....
  2. While we may not agree on the front office, our beverage choices are identical. Pepsi must have backed up the Brinks truck to get this deal done. I'd think if not for Mountain Dew, Pepsi would be bankrupt.
  3. The Defensive Line Thread - Who makes the cut?

    Well, that's one way to look at it and hopefully the case. But it's never a good look when the first guys you brought in and gave GTD $ to in FA are on the outside looking in.
  4. His recent experience is less than impressive, and the primary reason why folks feel the need to bring up Super Bowl wins and Grambling coaching history. We didn't have to promote Doug to keep him because there are no other suitors vying for his services. He's a likable guy with a Super Bowl ring for this franchise that has a friendship with Bruce Allen, whose pitch for the gig was that this team doesn't really need a GM. All that says a lot more about his promotion than anything on his resume related to player personnel. And I'll say it again, it's not fun having to throw shade on Doug Williams. He came in and won the first Super Bowl I can remember watching as a kid. I have no issue with him or Bruce having prominent roles in the organization, I'd just prefer they leave player personnel up to those that have dedicated their entire life to it and bring with them a proven track record of success.
  5. The Defensive Line Thread - Who makes the cut?

    If only I had twitter, I'd ask Scot if they followed his plan for free agency as well, specifically the two D lineman.
  6. The Defensive Line Thread - Who makes the cut?

    I caught The tail end of a piece with Brian and Doc on 980 this afternoon where they were saying there were rumblings that McClain can't play and is in danger of being cut. It may have been McGee but I'm pretty sure it was McClain. Anyone catch this or see anything about it on twitter? I'm not sure the exact language in their deals but I was under the impression they are getting too much GTD money for a move like that. Edit: Perhaps they were discussing this from Mike Jones mailbag: https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/football-insider/wp/2017/08/22/redskins-mailbag-mia-free-agent-signings-run-game-struggles-kirk-cousinss-play-and-more/?utm_term=.170346dec455 I’ve not heard much about Terrell McClain and Stacy McGee, which I take is not a great sign but not an awful one either (like the bad news that emanated from the preseason practice and play of free agent defensive linemen bust signings Stephen Paea and Kendall Reyes). Still, a more significant investment has been made in McClain (four years, $21 million) and McGee (five years, $25 million) and so my expectations are higher. Are these two projecting to be solid, impact contributors for the next two to three seasons? What should we expect in terms of their abilities to command double teams, produce tackles, sacks and hurries, minimize penalties or contribute in other ways? You haven’t heard much about them because neither has really moved the needle. McGee has been the better of the two. As of late, he has looked more impactful. Neither have been staples on the starting units. McGee has been a rotational player. McClain has made a cameo here and there. Both started for the first time Saturday night, but it was nothing to write home about. McGee has made a little noise against the run, and has generated some pressure in nickel packages. But I like Matt Ioannidis and Jonathan Allen better in the base package, and Allen and Anthony Lanier better in the nickel. From what I can gather, people are still encouraged by the recent strides they are seeing from McGee. But they want/need to see a lot more from McClain.
  7. The 2017 Training Camp Discussion Thread

    I didn't gather he was saying what they were running was necessarily vanilla, but they were running plays that Jay wanted to see on film, whether they made sense given the situation or not.
  8. Robert Kelley vs. Samaje Perine, Preseason Week 2

    Just to the naked eye in real time it appeared Perine is the better back. I wouldn't be surprised if he's starting come week 1. The only unknown is whether or not he can pickup the blitz.
  9. Random "Thot" Thread (Stadium Edition)

    Maybe it's just me but I imagine Rex would be pretty good in this role.
  10. ESPN - Kirk Cousins, Jay Gruden seek rhythm with new playcalling setup

    I've wondered to myself if I just have selective memory, but I've found myself talking to my TV about our lack of HU and even urgency in general on offense, dating back to the prior regime.
  11. Deadspin's Annual "Why Your Team Sucks: 2017 Redskins Edition"

    I agree with those that say its not really funny. However there is a lot of truth in there, which makes it even less funny.
  12. Bill Callahan and the Offensive Line

    This goes for all nicknames but I agree. The birth of a nickname prior to success is the kiss of death. I'm pretty sure Trent was sitting around stoned and one of his friends was like "duuuude, you know what? ya'll should be the Hogs 2, err I mean, Hogs 2.0" and he was like "word". Next thing you know the shirts are printed and the rest is history.
  13. Trump and His Cabinet......God Bless America; OP Updated

    What makes this even more gold is someone commented earlier that they hoped he would think all this was fake news and burn his retinas out.
  14. ESPN - Kirk Cousins, Jay Gruden seek rhythm with new playcalling setup

    Isn't that the same play where Doctson was wide open? Even if they are just running plays to get certain looks, I'd imagine the principles are the same and that he's supposed to hit the open man. Is he saying the object was not to score, but instead make the low percentage play to Grant for practice?
  15. I've seen this statement a few times and its rather pointless. Right up there with citing his Super Bowl win and career at Grambling as valid line items on his resume that suggest he's the best suited for his current role. We really don't have any choice but to give him time and even then, we'll always be skeptical of just how much power he has anyways. No matter how you feel about Doug and his ability to do the job, there will always be questions about who's doing what, who gets credit/blame, etc.
