  1. Random "Thot" Thread (Stadium Edition)

    Cowboys are making CJ Beathard look like CJ Beathard. Also moving the ball with ease. Go figure I was thinking San Fran would get their first W this week. Wishful thinking to say the least. I guess there is also no chance Zeke gets suspended before our game.
  2. The Trent Williams situation pretty much scares me to death.
  3. Eagles game - something has to give

    I'm not sure what to make of that, considering we still can't run the ball and are in love with wasting 1st down in the red zone with a run anyways. The most important target Cousins had in the red zone was Jordan Reed and he is clearly impacted by injury and practically non-existent. Both Pryor and Doctson are much less experienced targets than what we had in the past. Just because they are taller, doesn't mean they are better....at least not right now.
  4. Dustin Hopkins is out for the season

    There was a stretch last season where his misses were very costly. He actually missed 2 kicks in that atrocity against the Bengals indoors in London. Missed one indoors against the Lions in a 3 point loss. Missed 2 against the Cowboys in a 5 point loss. He also missed 3 XP's last year. I'm not blaming the losses solely on him, but you can see where his errors were very costly last season. The missed XP vs. the 49ers almost cost us as well. Perhaps he was injured at that point. I don't think any of us are saying that he's absolutely awful. In fact, I'd feel more comfortable with him than this kid we just picked up. Hopkins doesn't seem to have a straight kick any longer and most every kick has some sort of spin left or right, much like a golf swing. It can be a good thing if you can consistently control it and play the wind.
  5. Predict the Redskins record for the remainder of the season

    6 Oct 15 SF @ WAS Win : Although this one's in the past, I predicted a W. 7 Oct 23 WAS @ PHI Loss : This one just doesn't feel good to me. Too many injuries, on the road, Monday night. But wouldn't surprise me to Win. 8 Oct 29 DAL @ WAS Win : Kirk will shred the Dallas defense and we will do enough on D to grab the W. 9 Nov 05 WAS @ SEA Loss : I smell a game where neither team breaks 20 but we lose. 10 Nov 12 MIN @ WAS Win: We won't be able to run the ball, but Kirk will play well and the D steps up. 11 Nov 19 WAS @ NO Loss: Saints D creates some turnovers, we lose a sad one. 12 Nov 23 NYG @ WAS Win : Skins win handedly on Turkey Day and provide me with an early Bday gift. 13 Nov 30 WAS @ DAL Win : Repeat of week 8 and Skins sweep Dallas this season. 14 Dec 10 WAS @ LAC Loss: Skins lose a heartbreaker. 15 Dec 17 ARI @ WAS Win : Skins D line feasts on Carson Palmer, Kirk has a big day. 16 Dec 24 DEN @ WAS Win : Defense makes whoever is playing QB by week 16 turn it over a bunch. Wins a game where no team exceeds 23 points. 17 Dec 31 WAS @ NYG Win : McAdoo's last dance and the Skins come out victorious. This puts us at 10-6 and really depends what Philly does as to how the division shakes out.

    Zo was primarily a special teams player here and I'm pretty sure his departure was about the money. I don't recall him getting that much tick on our defense. Maybe my memory is just fuzzy but I thought he got a pretty good deal to leave that we just weren't willing to match. I think Zo is the king of all 'try-hard's.
  7. Do We Suddenly Have a Dominant Defense?

    Doc is cool with Doug and Lanier is a 'Doug guy' so I'm sure that has something to do with it. Unfortunately for Lanier, typically becoming one of Doc's man-crushes doesn't bode well for the future. My fingers are crossed.
  8. FanRag: Brandon Scherff Cements Himself Among Elite Interior OL

    I don't recall anyone that was ready to move on from him at that point. There was sort of a Scot bashing party going on at that point in the preseason, with Doctson being hurt, Cravens situation, etc. But he did look pretty bad, to the point that many of us wondered if he was dealing with injury. Since that time, he's been nothing short of a badass.
  9. Common Kirk....I just don't know....

    Just for some history, I would have traded Kirk Cousins for a ham sandwich in 2014, and I don't even like the taste of ham. There are several other posters here who have been down with Kirk since day 1 and would definitely be more valuable members of the 'Cousins Fan Club' than me. What those guys were seeing, I was not and I've eaten my crow in that regard. With that said, I have no problem being considered part of the Cousins Fan Club, since after all - he is the quarterback for the Washington Redskins. My problem with you and those that hold similar opinions as you, is that your criticism is often unwarranted and invalid. You're still in here talking about 'paying him whatever he wants' and that's what me and the CSF want to do. Last I checked, there has been absolutely no comments made by Cousins or his agent that the Redskins need to 'pay him whatever he wants' nor have I said that they should do that. You then go on to say that he said he wants to be "the most expensive player in NFL history". Again, google shows ZERO results for Cousins or anyone in his camp ever saying anything remotely close to that. You literally seem to enjoy making up things to be mad at him about. Just like the way he "looks" passing the ball. I'm just convinced you're crazy at this point.
  10. Redskins vs Eagles Prediction Thread: Who Is For Real?

    I googled to see if I could find any explanations for this Gatorade bath and when Pederson was asked about it he said it was because of all the noise surrounding him. The stuff that Lombardi was saying about him being the least qualified head coach he's seen hired in 30 years and that Schwartz was pining for his job. Not really valid for a Gatorade bath in my opinion. In fact, it kinda backs up the fact that dude is a gump, by receiving the Gatorade bath in week 1.
  11. Fixed. Nothing yet on Breeland, other than Jay's optimism that he's like Gumby. I'm guessing Saturday is the soonest we'll hear anything on that front.
  12. Jonathan Allen to miss rest of season

    I thought the 3-4 week timeframe stated yesterday seemed abnormal for this injury with this being the more likely scenario. Just ugh.
  13. Dustin Hopkins is out for the season

    Same way in my household. Which is a shame because he was a pleasure to meet at Redskins Rides last year and was really cool to my son and his friend. I just couldn't wrap my head around how we never even brought any competition in after he directly contributed to 3 losses last year. He seems to have more draw and fade on his FG kicks than any kicker I can think of and it makes me weary as hell every time one goes up.
  14. Redskins 49ers Post Game Assessments

    I think Kirk is average at the deep ball. DJax helped to make him look better than he is and the guys we have now make him look worse.
  15. Dustin Hopkins is out for the season

    True, at the end of the day it's a crapshoot. I was hoping for Josh Lambo or someone with NFL experience though.
