  1. Is it time to fire the training staff?

    Didn't know where else to put this but seems relevant. Story about Cravens and him missing time that just came out in SI https://www.si.com/nfl/2018/08/15/sua-cravens-washington-redskins-injury-grievance-trade-denver-broncos
  2. Deadspin: Why Your Team Sucks- Washington Redskins

    I show these to my wife every year as a good way to get an overview of each team so she can have good trash talk material during the season. They're obviously supposed to be funny, but also give a pretty good overview of each team's major headlines from the past year. A good and entertaining way to introduce someone to the NFL who isn't familiar with the team's histories and ongoing storylines. The one about the Dolphins is particularly funny this year, lots of Cutler bashing. https://deadspin.com/why-your-team-sucks-2018-miami-dolphins-1828247902
  3. Is it time to fire the training staff?

    I mean, you're joking, but I doubt there's much, if anything at that facility that qualifies as "best in the NFL" in terms of quality or cutting edge. I worked there on the grounds crew for summers in 04 and 05 and stuff was outdated then. I still see a lot of the same stuff in pictures from this years practices. Just my 2 cents though, I'm not a doctor
  4. Is it time to fire the training staff?

    All of Redskins park? The article linked earlier in the thread (or maybe the injury thread) seems like the clearest explanation to me. If Snyder is vying for a new stadium, it doesn't make sense to invest heavily in his current facilities
  5. Is it time to fire the training staff?

    The issue to me isn't whether the training staff could have prevented this injury. The issue is that this training staff, using outdated equipment and resources, will be the ones responsible for helping him recover from this injury. Freak injuries happen everywhere, but they take longer to recover from, and have a higher chance of not healing properly and happening again, if you try to cut corners on the treatment side of things. That's my main concern. I worry that Guice, and all our players, are at a competitive disadvantage not because we have MORE injuries than other teams, but because of how their treatment and recovery is administered to them after the initial injury occurs.

    Patriots worked out Bashaud Breeland yesterday. Trying to get some intel on our secondary before tommorow's matchup? https://patriotswire.usatoday.com/2018/08/07/report-patriots-work-out-cb-bashaud-breeland/

    The criticism is there if you look for it. Seems to me he's not thrilled with how Ryan Anderson mentally approached last year

  10. Annual "Where Do I Watch Games Thread"

    I have an absurdly specific question. I'm going to be ON an airplane travelling from Boston to Sacramento. Since were gonna be playing the Patriots, is that considered a local game? What are my chances Jetblue will be showing the game on their in flight screens? They always have FOX, NBC, CBS and NFL Network available but I've looked online and can't find a Network linked to this game anywhere.
  11. Uneven enforcement here we come!! It'll be interesting to see what percentage of these calls come when its a play that would have resulted in a change of possession. My guess is it will be enforced almost exclusively on 3rd and long, or when a team seems on the brink of being blown out. Seems like a good way to let the refs keep a nice close game right till the end so people don't turn off their tvs.
  12. Let's All Get Behind Alex Smith!

    Brees and Brady also have the luxury of being in the same system for like a decade.
  13. Let's All Get Behind Alex Smith!

    Alex Smith has spent his entire career wearing some combination of white, yellow, and red. He keeps evolving like some sort of Football Pokemon. Spooky Let's just hope he doesn't decide to end his career in Arizona

    Nicholson looks like an early contender for the "unable to live up to unrealistic fan hype" award
  15. The Conspiracy Thread

    Regarding the helmet rule, from Norman's press conference today: On the new helmet rule: "Really I don’t, other than just leaning with the crown of your head which is, I think is basic in the rules of the game that you learn since pee-wee and stuff. Have your head up, bold neck, just face-mask contact, but not that I know of, you know lean down with the crown of your head. I think that was taught - basic elementary. Now I guess there’s a big emphasis on that which I thought it was before but face mask always up anyways, hit what you see, which is what you have always taught. But being that this is now a rule where you can’t lead with the crown of your head just got to play up better but in the heat of the moment that split second, you’re just trying to get the guy down. Trust me, they’re definitely going to look for that fine, it will be there, waiting in your locker. FedEx delivery."
