  1. Is it time to fire the training staff?

    Every time I read your posts, I'm hoping that you're just a troll saying ridiculous things to provoke response rather than a real human being that means what you say while stealing air from the rest of us.
  2. NFL.com: Kirk Cousins tops biggest contracts

    Actually, the memories of Tyler Polumbus are still fresh in my mind. And by memories, I mean nightmares.
  3. Official 2018 Redskins Training Camp/Preseason Thread

    Please don't mistake being upset at the thought of starting the season with Rob Kelley as the starting running back as taking a dump on him. I love everything that I know about Rob Kelley the person. Dude is a grinder that has done everything that's been asked of him plus some in an effort to get better. Add to that the nice stories of him as a person. All that still doesn't mean that I think he can improve that much over one offseason that he's going to change my mind about him as a runner.
  4. That's true. @Morneblade If you only knew that they aren't the worst, just in the bottom third of the league.
  5. Deadspin: Why Your Team Sucks- Washington Redskins

    I don't care how the team wins either. If the defense is good enough to scrape out 16-14 wins, that'd be great. But I don't think that was the point the author was hitting home on.
  6. Last I checked, this is a forum to discuss and debate topics related to the football team. It's not a pep rally.
  7. Deadspin: Why Your Team Sucks- Washington Redskins

    I think everyone believes that, including his old team. I think where it starts to get murky is his ceiling. I agree with the premise that good FO's plan ahead, but I don't think that the only reason why they moved on was to save money and to take a chance on an unknown they like a lot. It's hard for many of us to believe that 2017 is a sign of what's to come with Alex on a team like the current version of the Redskins. Sometimes that's twisted to mean we don't like Smith, but that's really not the case at all. The Deadspin take is obviously outlandish and harsh, but like you I do see the truth in things like 'Redskins fans talking themselves into Alex Smith'.
  8. Deadspin: Why Your Team Sucks- Washington Redskins

    Hold up... You are criticizing someone else for being too long winded? That's like me criticizing someone for not being positive enough on the state of the Redskins.
  9. Official 2018 Redskins Training Camp/Preseason Thread

    You didn't say the word 'fraud', that is correct. I don't believe disingenuous is much better. Everyone was a new poster at some point so that's not the case at all. But when you show up and one of your first posts is calling out a tenured, respected poster as disingenuous, that's another story. It was also foolish because for all the folks that disagree with SIP and his takes, I don't think any of them think he cares enough about what others think to be disingenuous about how he feels on Alex Smith. This is kind of like folks that are ready to move on from Kirk only to get a few more kicks in before attempting to move on. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- To actually take it back to camp.... I don't take Jay at his word that he's not worried about the RB group. I don't hold it against him, because I don't expect him to say they stink. I suspect a heavy dose of run against the Jets in an attempt to see if anyone sticks out in a good way. If they don't, I wouldn't be surprised to see someone else brought in. Like SIP, I just find it hard to believe that after all the public statements made about improving the running game, they really feel great minus the one improvement they made to their running game.
  10. Official 2018 Redskins Training Camp/Preseason Thread

    I wouldn’t necessarily call it an online clique, as much as it is the same groups of people that hold the same beliefs and make it evident with what they ‘like’ on here and it goes both ways. I wasn’t putting myself on a pedestal. My statement was “someone like me”, being someone that most of the overly positive crew can’t stand. You should be familiar with the feeling of certain folks not being able to stand your takes. Sandy Monk made a post basically calling SIP a fraud a few weeks ago. It would have been pathetic coming from a long time member much less from a newbie.
  11. Official 2018 Redskins Training Camp/Preseason Thread

    It appears you desperately want to fit in and feel like challenging someone like me will help endear you to a certain demographic here. It didn't work with @Skinsinparadise. For that alone, I shouldn't even humor your response. But if you were paying attention, you'd see I was responding to hyperbole with hyperbole. I also wasn't under the impression that I was making a groundbreaking post that requires luster. Now is where you're going to reply, say that I'm wrong about you, try to be eloquently snarky, and have a lot of hope deep down that some folks here 'like' your post. Please save us that and spare the thread from anymore back and forth with me and send me a personal message telling me to F off if you have to. I don't think those that are happy-go lucky about the team are any better at prioritizing the game of football in their daily lives than those who express negative feelings. The fact of the matter is everyone that visits this site, positive or negative, probably cares too much about the football team. Otherwise we wouldn't spend so much time here.
  12. NFL.com: Kirk Cousins tops biggest contracts

    This is exactly where I'm at. I have no ill will towards Alex Smith at all. Sometimes it gets painted that way though because I'm not drinking the Kool-Aid.
  13. If what the beat guys are saying is true this was about him being an Ahole that didn't mesh well at all with the team. Perhaps he was insurance if in the event Moreau didn't step up. A really bad insurance policy but insurance none the less.
  14. Official 2018 Redskins Training Camp/Preseason Thread

    I could care less about the fight, but just chiming in to say that we also have posters that think nothing is a big deal and everything is swell. Which group ends up right more often than not? So yeah.
  15. I consider slot corner to be crucial. I don't think anyone ever thought it was a move that would sink the team $ wise, but I certainly didn't feel comfortable with him being the top option there. It's imperative that the youngins step up.
