  1. ... Trying to decide what's more ridiculous about this comment.... - the fact that Dan has such an arbitrary rule limiting his draft day options, - Or Bruce thinking "Dan having a gameplan for draft day" is what the fans want to hear. Not a great way to reassure people that everything is going to be handled by the right people after firing your GM. Even if its not the case, saying it now seems bizzarely out of touch
  2. I agree it's unlikely. Part of the reason I posted it was because it was such a great haul from Fan Speak. Lots of CBS and QBS shot up the board. On a different note. Anyone think Gruden has interest in Peterman as a mid round prospect? From what i read it seems like he's the most polished in terms of being able to run a pro system. His physical upside might be limited, and he seems hesitant to improvise (robotic in his reads similar to how Kirk used to be), but if we're looking for someone to "plug in" and be able to run Gruden's system he seems like the one who could best handle it out of the gate. A system QB that could help us move on from McCoy or help us tread water if we end up losing Kirk next year?

  4. Arizona is open to offers for the 13th pick as well
  5. Net worth when he bought the team in 1999: 750 million Current net worth despite how awful he is at the job: 2.85 billion I'm no fan of Snyder, but the business side of it is the one area he hasn't been a loser
  6. Lacy to the Seahawks. That has so much potential for epic nicknames Obese Mode Feast Mode Beast A la Mode
  7. You choose not to believe any of the articles I posted. My links are "out of touch with reality" only because of what the team has "leaked" in the past few days. I choose not to believe the stories coming out of Redskins Park within the past few days. I see too many similarities to how other employees' tenure ended with the Redskins to think that what is now being "revealed" is the truth. It seems very obvious to me that they are purposefully minimizing Scott's place within the organization after the fact to placate and reassure the fanbase. If you choose to believe the Redskins front office is telling the truth, I can't change your mind. But they no longer get the benefit of the doubt in my book and it seems incredibly naive to disregard the one factor that has been the difference during the 2 winning seasons. Take a look at how the national media is covering Scott's departure vs. how the Redskins official statements line up. The players, the fans, and the media all attributed the culture change to Scott for the last 2 years. Forgive me if I'm not willing to do a complete 180 and get in line based on the transparent, petty, self-serving damage control reports that are being spewed by the team after the fact to try and cover their asses.

If I gave the impression that I don't think Gruden is just as, if not MORE responsible for the turnaround as Scott the last 2 years, that's not the case. I'm probably one of Gruden's biggest fans, and have been since Day 1.
  9. This narrative the team is trying to push is insulting to Redskins fan's intelligence. We're actually supposed to believe this garbage?
  10. I get that, but also don't think people give enough weight to Bruce using Scot's scouting services in 2014 when they talk about Allen's drafting ability.
  11. Crazy to see how fast people have turned on Scott in here.... Its obvious to me that his entire time here was building towards THIS draft and free agency period. The number of picks, the capspace, it all points to NOW being the point where he planned to make the biggest switch and upgrades. He was willing to go bare bones for the first two seasons in order to get us into a good position NOW. Despite saving all his resources for his 3rd season, he still managed to get us Scherff, Crowder, Jones, Kelley, Davis, Blackmon, Norman, Cravens, Smith, Jarrett, Fuller, and field a defense GOOD ENOUGH to give us a fighting chance every week, back to back winning seasons and our first playoff trip since 2012. You all are like people who go to a party, eat the appetizers, and then complain that there wasn't enough food before dinner is even served. The main course is still to come. Just remember, when it tastes good, it was Scott who did the cooking. Don't give Allen credit for all the work Scott did the past 3 seasons.
