  1. Alex Smith has 90M reasons to be thrilled to be here. Also, how guys feel about being where they are, has a lot to do with their own individual perspective. As an example, I expect a guy like Jordan Reed, Ryan Kerrigan or Trent Williams to not have much bad to say about the organization. They've basically had the red carpet rolled out in regards to the handling of their contracts and what they were at the time they were signed. Their experience is obviously much different than many others. Nobody is saying that literally everything Bruce does is bad, wrong, a lie, etc. What the folks that work with him are saying in abundance is that he's a shady character that they ultimately don't trust. Are we to assume there is a conspiracy among the folks who were polled to make Bruce look bad?
  2. The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    Actually, I'd be willing to bet that the Junkies have more fans than Bruce Allen does.

    Over this? Well, perhaps its more sad and true than it is funny, but...
  4. The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    Out of all the stuff that was said during that entire segment about Bruce being a steaming pile of dung, you chose this quote for this thread? I realize it was done in an effort to discredit the poll, those who answered the poll, or both, but C'mon man. SIP did a good job providing the context for the poll not too far back. There was some elaboration into why Ozzie and Bill were rated so highly even though they can be known to be shrewd negotiators as well.

    Sad that Bruce can't even live up to Michael Scott. Sad, I tell ya.
  6. The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    Actually, I've helped numerous family members, both on my own and wife's side. However, one can only help out so much. At some point it's up to the individual to get their act together because I'm not picking up the phone anymore. Family or not, I don't feel sorry for folks that constantly get in their own way. A lot like how I feel about Bruce and Dan. The players and coaches are kind of like the kids, where I realize it's not their fault and still like them. Bruce and Dan are the irresponsible parents that make bad decisions that put the kids in a tough spot. No love for them. This kind of brings home the point that you can get away with being a prick that's stuck in his ways, if your way is proven. But when your way has never led to anything of merit and middle of the pack is the pinnacle, you get no benefit of any doubts.
  7. The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    No doubt, the Redskins are family. Family will go to great lengths to spin things about their family members and defend them.
  8. The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    I doubt they are basing their opinions on what they've read about him. These guys talk to each other. If anything, it's about what they've heard from their peers. Either way it's another bad look for Brucey and the team, even Cooley just admitted that on air while also saying he "feels kinda bad for Bruce because I like the dude". Sure this could just be another mean spirited, conspiracy by the media to taint the good name of the Washington Redskins. Or Bruce could really be the douche many of us have suspected he is.
  9. The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    Sadly, I don't think he is trolling. He probably actually thinks people want his autographed photo.

    Didn't want to start a new thread for this, so figured I'd drop it here. https://www.sbnation.com/lookit/2018/4/18/17252164/dan-snyder-autographed-photo-fan-kirk-cousins
  11. Josh Doctson the new 50/50?

    No doubt. But I've always looked at folks harping on guys like Doctson being open as a way to discredit the QB more than touting Doctson has the goods. I'm not ready to give up on Doctson, but he hasn't really shown me anything that leads me to believe he'll ever be that great of a player.
  12. The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    Unfortunately for us that’s spot on.
  13. Random "Thot" Thread (Stadium Edition)

    If I recall correctly, DG is not a big Snyder guy. I believe there are some hard feelings there in relation to Snyder expecting DG to entertain the suits after he retired.
  14. Who should be Starting RB in 2018??? (Public Poll)

    Drafting a back in the 2nd-7th round is a big window. I voted for that option, but I prefer this pick to be made in the 2nd.
  15. FA is all but dead right now. Not sure what you'd like the conversation to be about. While the current discussion is about the media not pouncing on the other DC squads like they do the Skins, it spawned off of the media not being impressed with the Skins FA and offseason in general. So it's still sort of on topic. The only thing that could bring this thread back to relevancy is signing Hankins. I won't hold my breath.
