  1. Haha, look, I would then have to ask an innocent question. What did you really expect from this 2018 season? and if so little, why even bother to spend time on it? I'd bet you didn't expect to be leading the NFCE, being a top 5 NFC team?

    The Offensive Line Thread

    I have been disgustingly optimistic, but went into this TB game with just above zero hope. So, your post here inspired me to give out a heart-felt apology. Mainly, an apology to my own nature. 😛 I thought Smith would have NO time, and AP would have NO run lanes. Things were not exceptional on those fronts... but oh my.. were they rarely a nasty detriment either (refs' BS aside at times). Sorry, collective OL!!!! I straight panicked and lost faith. You have slapped me proper!

    What is Wrong with Alex Smith?

    Completely cool with that, but to touch on your comment of Diggs and Thielen, have to take that duo over EVERY SINGLE available or not weapon that Washington has. I mean, even as a 2 player for a dozen swap. LOL

    What is Wrong with Alex Smith?

    THIS is a really, really good post, sir. Seriously. Thank you. It encompasses most of the elation and concern of the fanbase.. yet does so in a very respectable way. Again. Seriously.

    What is Wrong with Alex Smith?

    Stopped reading for the moment with a clear " **** no" .. LOL Pretty easy. Familiarity is THE number 1 thing for a PTSD quarterback like Alex. Yes, even above talent at skill positions. Next comes OL. Protect him. Make him cozy, and get a comfy rhythm, and he looks (dare I say it?) no.. I won't. I'll just say real good. Next comes derp derp weapons. The TEs they have currently are fine, but one is grossly overpriced.. and the other.. old as ****. WRs? I like MO Harris, and see Doc as a #2 at best. Have to figure Crowder a cap casualty. Nothing else proven worthy just yet. Get a WR that is impressive, please. Other QBs have a Michael Thomas, A Brown, Greene, OBJ3, Julio J, TY Hill, etc. I want nice things too!!!!! ( much respect for your other fine comments in that post, sir )

    What is Wrong with Alex Smith?

    Happy to leave the D be, as bend don't break can be infuriating but great against turnover prone QBs. That said, I was drooling all weekend at other team's offensive weapons, and wondering why Washington can't have nice things there too.

    When Can We Get Out of the Alex Smith Contract???

    Just don't see how it matters. F/O made a choice, and he gone, so what's done is done. NOT telling "real" Skins fans how to feel. Just expressing my one innocuous opinion on that. All that matters is whether fans want to tank/rebuild or win some games with any sense of optimism or pride in being a winning team, even if not the very bestest the League has to offer, right away.
  9. LOL !!!!! He had no trouble using his legs for yards or evasiveness. The excuses!

    3rd and 9.. 6-3 leading score.. 3rd quarter and 2:29 left. 2nd and 7.. same score.. same quarter.. and 1:13 left. 2nd and 14.. same score.. start of 4th quarter.. 15 minutes left. 3rd and 5.. same score.. next play. TD strike to Doc. This was the drive that brought home some of that yummy bacon. " oh, but Smith only hands the ball off.. and doesn't turn it over. "

    Game Day Thread - Redskins at Schiltz Magic

    Even the very brief consideration of an OL like Bergstrom versus JJ Watt. LOL, so many eager salivations at once may just drown out the forum.
  13. Different world now, mate. Sad to say.

    The personnel is there. So long as the turnovers flow, this bend don't break can make it work. No turnovers, and choosing against press man/heavy blitz can really be under penalty of death. ( or DC firing anyway 😛 ) 😛
