    NYT: What Reparations for Slavery Might Look Like in 2019

    I was wrong, it wasn't 11 million slaves freed by the war, it was ~3.5 million. That still seems like an unworkably huge number.

    There 100% is such thing as an off-season. That is what the months of no games is literally called...everyone else knows that’s called offseason. You seem to not know that

    WP: 20th anniversary of Snyder

    39-180-1: The Redskins’ record since Snyder took over the team in 1999. Washington never had more than 10 regular-season wins during that span. 2: The number of playoff wins the Redskins have had over the past 20 years. Washington’s last postseason victory was a 17-10 win over the Buccaneers on Jan. 7, 2006. 3: The number of Super Bowls won by other NFC East teams since 1999. The Giants have two (2007, 2011) and the Eagles have one (2018). Like Washington, the Cowboys also have zero, so at least there’s that for Redskins fans. 3: The number of NFC East titles for the Redskins since 1999. Over the past 20 years, the Eagles have eight division championships, while the Cowboys have five and the Giants have four. 12-28: The Redskins’ record against the Cowboys since 1999. In Snyder’s first six years, Washington was 1-11 against its biggest rival. 19: The number of Redskins starting QBs since 1999: Brad Johnson; Jeff George; Tony Banks; Shane Matthews; Patrick Ramsey; Danny Wuerffel; Tim Hasselbeck; Mark Brunell; Jason Campbell; Todd Collins; Donovan McNabb; Rex Grossman; John Beck; Robert Griffin III; Kirk Cousins; Colt McCoy; Alex Smith; Josh Johnson; and Mark Sanchez. 8: The number of head coaches, including interims, the Redskins have had under Snyder: Norv Turner (1999-2000); Terry Robiskie (2000); Marty Schottenheimer (2001); Steve Spurrier (2002-03); Joe Gibbs (2004-07); Jim Zorn (2008-09); Mike Shanahan (2010-13); Jay Gruden (2014-present). Only Gruden has lasted longer than four seasons. 19: The number of years over the past two decades that the Redskins have had either Vinny Cerrato or Bruce Allen in the front office. Cerrato was fired in 2001 by Marty Schottenheimer only to be rehired by Snyder the following year. While Snyder has been quick to fire coaches, he’s been oddly loyal to his top executives. 3: The number of seasons since 1999 that the Redskins have had a top-10 scoring offense — 1999 (2nd); 2012 (4th) and 2015 (10th). Over that span, they ranked 20th or worse 13 times. From 1983 to 1991, Washington had a top-10 scoring offense in eight of the nine seasons. 4: The number of seasons since 1999 that the Redskins have had a top-10 scoring defense — 2000 (7th); 2004 (5th); 2005 (9th) and 2008 (6th). Over that span, they ranked 20th or worse nine times. When they won the Super Bowl in 1982, the Redskins had the top scoring defense in the league. 5: The number of wide receivers the Redskins drafted in the first two rounds since 1999: Rod Gardner (No. 15, 2001); Taylor Jacobs (No. 44, 2003); Devin Thomas (No. 34, 2008); Malcolm Kelly (No. 51, 2008); and Josh Doctson (No. 22, 2016). Those five receivers had a combined 406 receptions in 15 seasons with the Redskins (an average of just 27 per year). ....https://www.washingtonpost.com/express/2019/05/23/numbers-that-explain-dan-snyders-years-with-redskins/?utm_term=.30d73ef09622
  11. Well we have Iowa product now on the o line..that has a contract about to be extended...maybe we can draft from Iowa next year and bolster up that o line.
  12. Best case scenario for him he balls out. We make a playoff run and he leaves next yr for a comp pick. Either way the cookie crumbles I think we will be okay. Primarily a run first/defense team which should help allievate pressure on the Qb. As of now our receiving weapons are fairly unproven.

    Reuben Foster carted off on 2nd snap of OTA's

    Unfortunately, gutter-level sniping is all the Washington (Com)Post is good for when it comes to the Redskins.
  14. Soto really needs to be at his MVP level if this team wants to the next step in the next few years.

    Season Ticket Renewals

    Anyone get an upgrade window yet. Seems to be running later this year
  16. Keenum, I'm sure, understands that Haskins is the team's future (unless he busts) and he has no future here really as a starter. I really don't have a problem with Keenum showcasing himself for his next team and his next contract if Gruden deems Haskins as not ready when the season starts. Of course, none of this takes Colt McCoy into account. Or Alex Smith, for that matter, down the road. Should be interesting.

    The Official "DC" Thread (Movies,Comics etc)

  18. Wirfs does have that nastiness you want your OL to have.Love watching him finish his blocking assignments lol! Underclassmen Little (Stanford) and Thomas (Georgia) seem to lead as you state LOADED OL class. Haskins is going to need all the protection he can get.
  19. I suspect it's going to be pretty easy for Case to seize the starting role to start the year. He would be dumb to take risks. And I think Jay is not going to unleash Haskins proper on defenses in preseason to create his own QB controversy, further than he will already be facing. I wonder if a head coach has ever openly stated that they want a full blown QBC of 2 even matched guys. They could easily manipulate that via preseason play calling, by showcasing ones strengths, and exposing the others weaknesses. Reports are focused on Haskins in camp but Keenum is doing well and short of Case collapsing in preseason, see the job as all but his. He got first reps in camp and that says all I need to know to form my first guess, coupled with the common belief new kids have to sit a few weeks no matter what. Here is one of my problems with Case. He is going to use this year for his next big contract. ShowcaseCase2019.com. If he does well, he is a rental to us, for he will bolt for greener pastures. Is watching that happen all year, really going to be best for Haskins development? Amateur hour here but I will say hell no. Haskins is here to play and we all know it.
  20. There have been free blacks in the us for as long as it has existed and before. The numbers and locations might surprise some people. https://www.pbs.org/wnet/african-americans-many-rivers-to-cross/history/free-blacks-lived-in-the-north-right/ there exists the notion all blacks here back in that period were slaves or freed/escaped slaves ,which is wrong
  21. Well, at least you will see Haskins on the field in preseason. Beyond that, though, depends on how he (and Keenum) do.
  22. Taysom Hill, New Orleans. https://www.pro-football-reference.com/players/H/HillTa00.htm Wildcat concepts were all the rage but have eased. Its just a wrinkle to throw out at defenses. He doesn't even have to be utilized, and it will still make DCs have to game plan for it. Don't worry, Jay doesn't seem to be the type to do anything that radical. Lets be honest though, WRs line up wide countless plays over the season, and do little more than trot a few steps down field.

    NYT: What Reparations for Slavery Might Look Like in 2019

    If the reparations were to be cash payments to cover the promise of 40 acres and a mule, then the payments would have to be divided equally among the members of each estate of freed slaves from 1865. Only people who are alive to submit a claim at a time the estate is divided would receive benefits. This is one reason why I don't think that would be a great way to do it. First, tracking down 11 million estates from 1865 for people who were enslaved and had minimal literacy and later were impoverished in many cases, and for generations, and who probably don't have much of a legal historical paper trail is an unfathomably difficult task. Second, getting together tens of millions of claimants and authenticating their genealogies is the next impossible step. A lot of poor black people don't have a government issued ID that can prove their own identity, and we'd be expecting them to fill out claims forms that would require them to demonstrate their genealogy going back 150 years? It'd be creating a system where poor black people would almost certainly be excluded from a one time payout of benefits to an overwhelming degree. Those are some reasons why I think reparations would have to take a different form of benefits. Renegade's idea of collectivizing the benefits to improve schools and utilities in black neighborhoods sounds like a good idea on the surface, but it would significantly change the scope of the reparations structure of the tangible 40 acres and a mule promise. Negotiations for the payment of reparations are already unlikely as is, they would fall apart if the scope were to change too much in the process.
