    Disciplined, commitment to the run football back in DC and it works! Who knew?

    Just because folks don't believe in this hub-bub you're preaching about this new beginning with Jay gone, doesn't mean they aren't fans. Everyone has their reasons for liking or disliking parts of or all of this organization. Some choose to just bail and not say anything at all, others choose to talk about it. Obviously, you're free to continue trying to find stuff to be excited about just as everyone else is free to not see it the way you do. The fans that are still here want something to believe in. We convinced ourselves that Scot would work out, that's how badly we want something to believe in. I think that's a testament to that very fact, that we do indeed want something to believe in. We just believe differently than some and quite frankly, that's okay.

    For some odd reason the quarterback sneak is not in the playbook for some baffling reason. The press needs to ask Callahan why they do not allow their quarterbacks to run the sneak.

    Damn, that's exactly the model I remember, with the fly ass April on the side.

    If Callahan's mission as the interim HC is to show Jay Gruden was wrong for under utilizing Adrian Peterson? Mission accomplished. However, everyone not named Jay Gruden likely already knew this. I hope he has satisfied his own mission and is ready to move on going forward calling games with the intention to win.
  7. Good point on the pass protection earlier in the year but the running game is definitely improved and I believe their pass protection has improved now that the OC is calling a more balanced game. We'll see how improved as the year goes by.

    I know it's smaller but still, for the money, this is pretty awesome. My buddy has the Street Fighter one and it's sweet. Responsive controls and great graphics. It's a lot of fun for a few hundered bucks. They have the MK1-3 version too that I would like to get along with the TMNT and put in my basement. I doubt they'd ever release a Blitz version since the NFL has distanced itself so hard from that franchise https://www.walmart.com/ip/Teenage-Mutant-Ninja-Turtles-Arcade-Machine-w-Riser-Arcade1UP/355692464?wmlspartner=wlpa&selectedSellerId=0&adid=22222222227306355403&wl0=&wl1=g&wl2=c&wl3=380618117939&wl4=pla-811433324060&wl5=9008885&wl6=&wl7=&wl8=&wl9=pla&wl10=8175035&wl11=online&wl12=355692464&veh=sem

    Sorry but have to keep you honest here. Not sure where your numbers come from but they had 3 holding and 2 false starts. So that's 5 for the game. 2 holding a FS was just the first half. So that is zero improvement. See pic below. Here is the link to the data: https://www.nflpenalties.com/game/san-francisco-49ers-at-washington-redskins-10-20-2019 I do not share your enthusiasm for the commitment to the run but that does not mean i see it as a negative. The issue I have is they did nothing to capitalize on that first drive. As a result they had 65 yds on 10 carries on that first drive - great drive even without pts. Nice way to start. After that? 72 yds on 29 carries for a whopping 2.48 yds/att. That is atrocious. Looks like SF made adjustments but we did not. Sound familiar? I also am not sure I agree that any improvement is due to Bill C. I believe i'ts more addition through subtraction - meaning the players are more glad to see Jay go than admittedly i believed. Doesn't mean he cannot provide a boost. Just way too early to declare any kind of impact due to him being HC for now. Also cannot say he has no impact either. Just not enough time to tell. Side note: I hope they are getting Haskins ready for either after Thursday or after the bye.

    What the hell is Wrong with Scherff?

    It was the #5 pick. And it's not ridiculous, not in today's NFL, because of the rookie wage scale. Before the rookie wage scale, the reason teams wouldn't draft a guard usually until later rounds was because of the ridiculous contracts negotiated for 1st round draft picks. In that draft, Scherff was the top rated OL, we needed OL, so they drafted him. Should we let him walk? I dunno, it depends on what they do with TW. I'd like to see us trade TW for a 1st round pick in the 2020 draft, then use both of those picks on a LT and RT while keeping Scherff. Unless there is a better guard out there in FA that would sign with us.
  11. So I disagree that there isn’t enough talent on offense to be a competent offense. I’m not suggesting “greatest show on turf” or what the Patriots do, or anything. But there are enough pieces that if you use them properly you can at least be competent. McLaurin is emerging as a legitimate 1. AP can still run the ball, and credit to Callahan for running out of sets and formations which compliment APs style. Richardson is a good enough 2 with enough speed to be efficient, and Quinn is somewhere between ok and good. The left side side of the OL has been ok. Rouille is ok. For some reason Scherff has been “meh” and Moses is and has been overrated for years. But it’s not a catastrophic OL. The big issue is QB. Keenum is physically limited. Colt is meh. Haskins is ... nobody actually knows. Given the right coaching and play calling, they could get more out of this personnel. Callahan seems to be an improvement over Jay in some areas. But overall, this is still a D+ coaching staff coaching C level talent.
  12. Not sure why I don't have the capability to quote @Veryoldschool... I'd cool the jets on the improved OL, at least from a pass protection standpoint. Teams with ferocious D-lines have proven to be kryptonite for Kirk and against both the Packers who have improved there, and the Bears who are amazing there but lacking everywhere else, Kirk struggled mightily. If he and the OC don't figure out a way to get the ball out faster and/or buy some time with his feet against teams like that, these folks are going to continue to party when that happens. That said, it is sad at how often Skins fans have to downgrade other QB's for not lighting it up against good defenses, when most QB's don't and the Redskins have 30M+ and 1st round draft choice locked up on the position and they trot out Case Keenum or Colt McCoy because the guy they drafted at 15 isn't ready to play, and lose regularly to everyone not strategically tanking.

    Actually we do...but when anyone attempts to do so they get responses acknowledging those positives but with a lot of negativity. For example, someone on this thread mentions how Terry McLaurin is something good about this team we can talk about. The response? Could have talked about his route running, his maturity, his leadership personality, how he looks to finally be a drafted WR for the Skins who could develop into a #1, how if Haskins develops into a legit starter we could have them paired up for the next 10 years...etc, etc. Instead, you chose instead to talk about an imagined future scenario in which he bolts at the first chance he gets because he sees the team exactly the same way fans do. You basically said, "Even if there are good things to discuss about the team, why bother?"
  14. I don't recall them exactly "giving it up". And I'm under the impression that they think they're ready to take it back, now. And somehow, I don't see Assad deciding to give up not only some of his territory, but the part that has the oil, based on "well, the army that's claiming to own it now is mostly composed of people who used to be my subjects, so I guess I'll just write it off."
  15. Zuckerburg is letting untrue ads for Trump on FB. His offering advice to Pete leads me to totally disavow his candidacy. I thought Pete was smarter.

    This play pissed me off the most.... 4 instances that if they went differently I think the game would have been different. 1 - missed FG...but they had problems on 1 of theirs as well...weather sucked for kicks 2 - AP fumbling. He had a great game except that. And quite possibly was the straw that broke the back 3 - a fumble recovery overturned because a ****ing umpire was out of position? Seriously....WTF 4 - 4th and 1 and you dont sneak it....double WTF...I mean seriously WTF...all he had to do was fall forward and instead you send the ball back 2 yards to go 1?!?

    Why didn't Keenum just sneak the ball when we needed 1 yard. I kept thinking QB Sneak....I just don't get the play call.

    I've been less involved with the Skins this season. I've watched the games but have been more detached emotionally from it. Ironically, I've probably spent more time on ES, since there's been a coaching change and rookie QB to discuss. I'm starting to question the point, since the evidence is becoming overwhelming that Snyder isn't going to grow into his role.

    In among all the MANY problems to attend to, which even Stevie Wonder could see, that I'll leave to others to address, I personally like the way this is trending with small things being worked on each week. This week, there was a lot of pride to take in the fact they went hard, toe-to-toe, with a far superior team for the full 60 minutes. BIG improvement on the second half collapses, both mentally and physically, from the first 5 weeks. That's a testament to their preparation and work ethic being stepped up through the week when it would be so easy for a 1-5 team, as many fans already have, to say 'screw playing hard. Just play the games out and get on our vacations already!' Unfortunately, with no semblance of competent QB play and an overall lack of talent compared to the 9ers squad, we got the negatives within that. But lest we forget we're starting here from a rock bottom standpoint so ANY incremental improvement can't be seen as anything but positive and a building block to righting this LONG wayward ship. The offensive penalty drop from zero the previous week to three this (2 holds/ 1 false start), was frustrating. But still WAY more disciplined from that group from what went before. And the line play overall was decent again. The continued commitment to the run was also pleasing to see. Albeit the overall playcalling was severely limited by the weather and the limitations of the man under centre. Along with facing one of the best D's in the league at this current time. It wasn't great but it wasn't horrible either with some great flashes of what it can give if the committed focus there keeps up. It'll certainly benefit Haskinsa whole bunch if and when he's upto speed. Kudos to the D buying in, FINALLY coming to the party and playing hard the full game. With some real good plays along the way along with the continued mental mistakes that need working on and eradicating. It's easy to look at the continued struggles, and yesterday putting up zero points at home, and lambast them for them. But if anyone seriously expected massive change, in both performance and scoreline/ productivity, two weeks in, against stellar opposition, they were deluding themselves. The thing is, for me at least, when you're starting from absolute rock bottom, ANY incremental improvement in the team, in whatever facet, each week, should be roundly applauded. There's naturally going to be more downs than ups along the road. But if we keep doing the right things, day in, day out, and giving everything to everything we do, those little steps will eventually pay off and turn into big ones. Right now, rather than wallow in the many negatives still to address, I can at least take solace from the improvements they are showing. Looking forward to Thursday. (And the simple fact we're preparing professionally now for that the next three days as opposed to the previous regimes prep in that regard is another step forward in a blueprint to hopefully a much brighter future.). Hail.

    I was thinking "Man, I really wanna finish my Witcher 3 run and hop on RDR3," But Hideo , and Dan Hauser to a far lesser extent, are two men I absolutely cannot say no two. And this is also an opportunity to rid myself of the disappointment I felt from playing MGSV
  23. This is my thing. Is he not capable of receiving a snap and handing the ball off? Or not capable of running a play action pass? Or is he simply not capable of dropping back without breaking both legs? Maybe he is not capable of giving the signal to hike the ball. Anything other than that... And if he is so far from being ready, why on earth is he the back up. That makes zero sense. Colt should be back up in that case. Keenum could have easily turned an ankle in that slop yesterday and then the QB that is light years away from being able to play would have had to play...

    This line stinks. Play the Skins to cover but not win. vegas knows everything.
  25. They have an improved OL, a healthy running back and Zimmer's defense is decent this year, unlike last year when Cook was hurt and the OL badly depleted. This is the first time in Kirk's career he has a balanced team to work with and it shows. After a few weeks of trying unsuccessfully to win by heavy-duty running Zimmer has let his OC mix it up and make full use of the wonderful cast of skill players they have including; Cousins, Thielen, Diggs, Rudolph, and others. It's an explosive mix so you may want to tone down your usual smarmy comments before you become the Bruce "winning off the field" Snyder of the board.
