Not only that. The soulless troublemaker bought her a Jag. A freaking Jaguar!

Yeah! And everyone knows that jaguars and cougars are incompatible 🤪

Yes, those characterizations are room people that know nothing about him at all. When you listen to his teammates from LSU they have nothing but good things to say. Same with his coaches. None of them understand where all this garbage is coming from. 

 

He may walk to a slightly different beat but how does that make him a diva? It does not. He likes to play video games, help other people, and loves playing football! 

 

 

I've said it on this thread and said it months back on the draft thread -- the extra circular stuff about Guice struck me as a cool bonus to him as a player.  That is, when the camera would pan his way during LSU games you can tell he was a ball of contagious energy on the sideline.  I get the whole who cares about the extra stuff -- you are either a good player or not.  But as for Guice I think he will be a great player -- but I do love the gravy of having his energy on the sideline.

 

Chris Thompson referred to it in a recent interview about how Guice has transformed the energy in the RB meeting room.  I am sticking to the idea that if this ends up a playoff year this dude will be the lead dance to make it happen.

I think his energy and enthusiasm is going to be contagious, in a very positive way. I really like the kid, and I hope he can solve our RB woes. And, if we can start punching in short yardage TD's and first downs with regularity, instead of becoming a completely one dimensional passing team in those situations because of him, I'll be ecstatic. I don't think we've really had that consistently since Riggins.

As one scout said, the goal is to get defenses to respect the run and get more players in the box. He also called the notion of committing to the run “overrated.” It’s not about number of carries or striking some sort of balance, whatever that might be. It’s about the threat. One defensive assistant from another team said a year ago the Redskins didn’t have a back they feared. That didn’t change in the 2017 season.

Certainly, there have been times in games where the Redskins could have stuck with the run a little more. But would it have helped them win more? Hard to say.

 

One note: Eight of the top-10 teams in terms of number of carries finished with a winning record last year. Eight of the top 10 in terms of yards per carry also did the same,

Guice to DC was the single best moment of the entire Draft weekend, for me. :) 

 

I agree. I was feeling kind of bummed about taking Payne so early, but when we landed Guice, it was simply hard to believe.

I hear you. I was thinking that they could have done much worse than Payne. Gave it a "B" type of premature grade. 

 

I was bummed that Vea and Fitzpatrick were selected just before the #13 pick. So then, I was more interested in trading back or selecting James. Now, I am feeling better about how things went.
