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

    Agree. we got these guys before Johnathan Allen was gift wrapped to us in the draft. Overpaid depth isn't ideal, but its still better than overpaid, underperforming starters. I think were still better off with them on the roster, for insurance purposes if nothing else
  2. I wish teams could have their own official on game days. Each team would be given a league sanctioned ref whose sole job is to watch their team's opponent and ensure that they are following the rules. Like a gameday, on field lawyer for each team. This would lead to rule familiarity between the coaches and players and hopefully a clearer understanding of what is or is not allowed on gameday. It would also help keep a team from getting unfairly targeted by giving equal representation during the game, almost like a lawyer for the defendant and a lawyer for the prosecution in a courtroom. During the week and on gameday your players and coaches could always have access to your team official and use him for clarification, ask whether this or that is allowed, tell him if someone on the other team is doing something illegal and to watch for it, etc. So on game day you'd have one ref working for only the home team, making sure they get fair calls and that their opponent isn't getting away with any illegal tactics. One ref doing the same for the away team. And a third/floating/impartial ref for tie breakers and overruling anything that came across as favoritism. Refs would spend an entire season with one team, then rotate to a new one the next year. Imagine having a ref who the coach could talk to all week when studying film and say: "We want to try this crazy trick play on Sunday, is it legal?" Or, "this teams linemen are consistently starting offsides and jumping the gun, watch for that on Sunday", or "My player has a touchdown celebration he wants to do, will this be a fine or is it ok?" or "the other ref keeps calling illegal motion on us, but its not and here's why, go explain to the arbiter judge what were doing and why its actually legal"
  3. These are always brutal and hilarious. Every team gets one. I'd laugh if I wasn't crying so much. All in good fun. Sort of....... http://deadspin.com/why-your-team-sucks-2017-washington-redskins-1797971084 Cowboys and Giants haven't come out yet, but here's the Eagles one as well: http://deadspin.com/why-your-team-sucks-2017-philadelphia-eagles-1797746673
  4. How about when he straight up told the press that during his interview he specifically told Allen he didn't want the responsibilities of a GM? http://www.csnmidatlantic.com/washington-redskins/doug-williams-doesnt-want-be-gm-he-doesnt-want-be-head-coach-either "What makes Williams' promotion perhaps most interesting is that he was very specific that he didn't want to be GM. He only wants to be in charge of personnel - finding good players - and not all the ancillary things that fall in line with the general manager position."
  5. In the scenario where Bruce is gone, I'd assume Dan would have some input in replacing him no? And replacing him with someone the organization just let go doesn't sound likely. It would be an admittance that the organization made a mistake. I'd love for it to happen, I just don't think it will.
  6. I would do this in a heartbeat, with the condition that Scott hires me on as official divisional spy and conspiracy analyst. Sadly, I don't think Dan would swallow his pride.
  7. Nationwide Removal of Confederate Statues

    Selfie sticks so everyone can broadcast how much this issue means to them since 5 minutes ago. Don't get me wrong, I agree with the statues coming down. Let's just say I have a healthy skepticism of people who are willing to make a scene when they know the cameras are rolling and there's a chance for 15 seconds of internet fame

    sportdevil app in Kodi. You can access firstrowsports through that
  10. 6 games for elliot, compared to 1 game for the Giants kicker Josh Brown, when he ADMITTED to beating his wife, jut reinforces my belief that the Giants get the most bias treatment in the NFL. Elliot's fine will be reduced, but not enough to keep him from playing the Giants in week 1. For all other divisional games, Elliot will be back in the lineup

  12. The 2017 Training Camp Discussion Thread

    This was the first thing i thought of as well. No idea if its feasible, but it sure looks like we'll be needing some backup there.
  13. Random "Thot" Thread (Stadium Edition)

    Scott's mantra was "win or lose the other team will feel that they played the Redskins the next day" Quite frankly I don't think the Ravens felt a thing........
  14. Redskins at Ratbirds GAME DAY THREAD

    Well at least it happened early....
