    The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    There was rumblings I thought of Bruce’s involvement leading up to the game? Maybe I’m wrong. My point was more he current state of the team and head hunting going on by fans and media (not saying it’s wrong, but the story satisfies the appetite of the majority). Side note, Sheehan loves to get fan base riled up and will do anything to bring publicity to his podcast. Don’t blame him in the least. Not as familiar with Findlay outside of guest appearances. Not a case or right or wrong, but my guess would be these stories wouldn’t come out if the Skins were sitting at 9-5 or so.

    2019 Comprehensive Draft Thread

    Regarding our D, I’ve had a minor change of perspective. I had corner and ILB as our top needs with an edge defender further down our list of needs. Here’s the thing though. On 3rd and long, our DTs, along with Kerrigan (and Smith, but I’m hoping we let him walk), can push the pocket. However, teams can/could line up in shotgun or run 7 step drops and often buy the time needed to find an open target. That’s where the thought of adding a corner came in... but adding a corner (or replacing Norman with said corner), doesn’t solve the issue, it just ‘solves’ the coverage on one guy. So, I’m now leaning toward an OLB/DE that can get around the tackle in a hurry. If a qb is dropping further back to avoid the interior push, it makes it that much easier for the edge defender to get to them. Long story short, I’d put a premium on an instinctual, fast ILB to help against the outside runs, and then look for an edge defender (even ‘just’ a situational pass rusher) that can make teams pay on the 3rd and longs. Yes, improving the secondary is a must, I’m just not sure one good corner will have the same impact... especially since they might be the only good corner we’d have on the roster (though I hope to see the young guys make big strides).

    What makes you say that? They’re 6-7-1. I dont see them beating the bengals (who beat Oakland 30-16) or the ravens.

    It was said yesterday after a win. As for Finlay and Sheehan just making things I'd guess just for kicks. You never know but I'd be surprised.
  8. Never heard of it or thought it would be that common. I can see where they would prefer people that contract with the states do not boycott a ally....be a interesting case

    Whatever narrative that feeds the masses, especially during a 4 game losing streak lol This is not an opinion on Bruce, as I understand those who want him out. It’s just funny, the reporting— In my opinion, the media knows very little about the inter workings of the FO, especially after Shanny left.

  13. "There's no reason they should have had him still on the practice squad based off of how Michael Floyd and Maurice Harris have played," said Hoffman. "And I think why it angers so many people is that it seems to be an obsession by certain people, whether it's coaches — and I'm not talking just Jay — or front office people with certain players." "An infatuation, and they can't get over it. And now it's cost them two good players that could have helped their football team." Hoffman also noted both decisions were met with backlash not only from fans, but within the organization. "It wasn't unanimous in the front office," Hoffman told Paulsen and Rouhier. "There's some people around that building who weren't exactly psyched about it." "It is a sign that there are — I got to be really careful how I phrase this, because if you say there are warring factions — no, they had football disagreements. And different people have different opinions, and obviously some opinions go over others." https://thefandc.radio.com/craig-hoffman-redskins-jay-gruden-obsessed-byron-marshall-not-kapri-bibbs

    It's Deadpool 2 that has been edited to PG-13. They replaced the really bad scenes and made it into a spoof of The Princess Bride, with Deadpool reading to an adult Fred Savage and narrating the story.

On Monday, The Intercept first reported, she sued the state and the school district that gave her the boot. “Texas’s ban on contracting with any boycotter of Israel constitutes viewpoint discrimination that chills constitutionally-protected political advocacy in support of Palestine,” reads the lawsuit filed by children’s speech pathologist Bahia Amawi. https://www.thedailybeast.com/texas-elementary-school-speech-pathologist-lost-her-job-for-refusing-to-sign-pro-israel-oath?ref=scroll

    Good thoughts but I don't think I should change the questions after 98 have voted even if I could. Obviously this isn't a scientific poll but if I added questions after 98 people have voted the reported results would be misleading. I find the about even split interesting. One other thing I think 95+% would vote to can Bruce and 110% would vote to compel Snyder to sell.

    The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    Finlay and Sheehan typically aren't the fly crap against the wall types. Finlay might actually be the friendliest beat reporter to Bruce and likes to give a modified version of what you like to say which is fans are too harsh about him. So considering the source, I trust Finlay in particular. And he said it in a way where he wasn't saying its just once in a blue moon but a pattern. As for bringing in Peterson, if you recall part of the humor of the story was Doug telling it in a way like he was a kid playing hooky and got away with it (Schaffer being the lead) and said Bruce wasn't happy about it. But regardless even if that wasn't so, bringing in dudes for workouts versus pushing in season roster/playing time are two different animals. As for the phase out line, you have a point there -- looks like Bruce has had an apparent resurgence at least in some form this season if you follow people who cover this team. Edit: listening to Craig Hoffman talk about some roster decisions, gives the vibe that its a bit of a free for all. Sometimes this guy gets what he wants, sometimes the other guy. To me, again, its the problem when you got all these guys running around the kitchen. And also to me its why I am fixated on who has the last say and ultimate call which is Bruce regardless of how talented the underlings are. The guy with the final say is a big big deal.
  18. Right now a Democratic Senator from Maryland (Ben Cardin) is trying to push legislation in Congress that criminalizes US businesses from signing onto a boycott movement against Israel. The ACLU got him to take back some aspects of it but not all.

    So Bruce went from being heavily phased out to the point that he wasn't even aware of guys coming in for workouts, to now heavily involved in player rotations? If true, he needs to GTFO but consider me skeptical at best on that reporting.
