    Tony Wylie leaving Redskins for Special Olympics

    Some of the points here, I've seen multiple times. It's part of the reason why I think the league is more likely to kick in and help the Redskins secure a stadium as opposed to let them leave. ...The totality of Washington’s decline under Snyder has gained the attention of many within the league. The Washington market, ripe with history and rich in political connections, has unique meaning. For years, Redskins tickets were scarce, a sign of prestige and pride. Last year the team finally acknowledged that for the first time in decades it no longer had a waiting list for season tickets. “If you’d have told me that the Redskins would have been an afterthought in the D.C. market, I would have told you you were crazy,” one NFL power broker said. “But you’re starting to see that. And it’s a concern.” ...“The reason they paid attention to him — because normally they wouldn’t give him that much attention as a new owner, and especially a young new owner — is because the franchise is important,” Policy said. “It’s part of that Eastern gravitas that’s brought to the media with significant, significant rating impacts. It wasn’t so much Dan was that important. It was the Redskins are that important.”

    Tank for Tua

    In defense of tua, that list isn't exactly a who's who of first round busts. Jamarcus Russell is probably the only other player on that list who came out of college with extremely high expectations. Saban may not be known for producing high end talented quarterbacks but it's not something that has bitten many teams in the ass.

    Sports Wagering thread

    Wisconsin, A&M, UCF to cover. If I can make a little hay from that, I’ll parlay ND +14.5 and the over for fun tonight.
  5. Yeah exactly. But even if I played along with Clinton-Dix stinking is a key point then we were the dummies that traded a 4th rounder for the dude. What trade has Vinny or Bruce won in the mix of all their deals? I'd go for Vinny -- Moss for Coles. for Bruce is getting low draft picks in return for their failing veterans, that's about it. Clinton-Dix according to a Bears reporter has played well for them. But I agree he was mediocre here. Landon Collins is one of his best friends yet he decided to sign with the Bears even though Collins was in the fold here first. My point with that post is it would be nice one day to hear a player wants to play here because they are winners and have a winning culture and to that point I was parlaying off of @goskins10 post.
  6. How well Clinton Dix played for the Redskins really has nothing to do with what he’s saying though.
  7. Seriously? While it is true the "Redskins do not equal culture and winning football" But a variation of this deciphered coming out of the mouth of Clinton-Dix? It is a joke. He exemplified the play of a losing team. He did not do one thing to elevate our secondary. Guy couldn't cover my grandmother; He missed tackles, he missed assignments. Were we actually thinking of bringing him back? Look I do not disagree with the statement but when it comes from guys like this? I think we all learned rather quickly and unfortunately why the Packers let him go.

  9. I doubt they can get two 1's for Trent. But everyone and their grandmother just about who has asked around in the NFL have said a first rounder worst case and more likely a first and change. Schefter, Laconfora, Garafalo, Rapoport, Casserly. I think we got two competing narratives and I hope the answer is A not B. A. They are just leveraging the market to the hilt right until the trading dead line with the hope that more injuries would amp the trading market. B. Get the last laugh on Trent money wise by eventually forcing him (not literally but they know Trent doesn't want to lose a full season) to come back in time for him to be vested for the season. They waive no fines and Trent loses for the hold out. Maybe there is a C but doesn't sound like it -- that would be they waive the fines and pay Trent and try to make nice and make bygones bygones. Some beat guys (I agree with them) think B is a major lose lose because forgetting the opportunity cost of losing a chance to pick up a high pick or two -- they also bring back a disgruntled Trent back to the locker room who might do the same song and dance next year. That's D. Hall's narrative too from after talking to Trent.

    2020 Comprehensive Draft Thread

    USC's schedule is brutal this year. If they somehow manage to run the table and finish with just the one loss, I think they should get in to the playoff. That kind of run would be far more worthy than an undefeated run through any of the other conferences. Far more worthy than the season that got Wahington in. Slovis will have to come back for them to have any chance though. Otherwise they're not going to beat Notre Dame or Oregon.

    The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    The culture thing will dog Dan until his ownership ends, I doubt he even understands the word. For those who defend him because he spends money. On that point, he doesn't always spend money, on some fronts he's arguably cheap but I'll play along and give him that. Some of the people who worked at Redskins Park have rallied around the fact that the operative words thire are fear, impatience, alliances, etc. According to some you need a master's in office politics to succeed there. Fortunately for Bruce is sounds like office politics is his wheel house. That culture from above filters downs. It effects coaching. It effects personnel. It's not just about whether an owner is willing to splash the cash.

    The Impeachment Thread

    1) All this talk about "He's going to refuse to leave office" wasn't funny with the previous two Presidents, either. 2) If he does refuse to leave the White House, just wait till the next weekend.

    Tank for Tua

    Many of these guys were really good game managers with leadership qualities. I figured most of them would become decent starters at some point or at least really good backups that stuck around for 10+ years but they just faded away within a few years. Tua does appear better than the list but I don't think he explodes on the scene in the NFL either. Fortunately The Redskins wouldn't be in the market for A QQ. They will be in the market to trade down to make up for the lack of a second rounder.

    Saw Tool open for Slayer at the Boathouse circa 94 or so. These were rowdy, good times.

  18. True, but his supporters have the intellectual demands of that 6-year-old bully's sycophant we all saw back in elementary school. So he doesn't need much.

    The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    What intrigues me about Kyle is that we finally seem to be drafting better and have hit at least two in a row (at least on paper) More, we're getting contributions from low round draft picks and undrafted guys. I think SIP has a point that if only one phase is working right (the draft) and all the others (player relations, free agency, stadium and fan relations, etc.) aren't working it's hard to know if Kyle has "it" Then again, he has one job right now and seems to be doing it well. If we have to lose him to get rid of Bruce and Jay then so be it. The bigger goal of resetting the team needs to take precedence.

    Tank for Tua

    I'm not sure about that. In the year prior to drafting Luck their QB situation was so bad after Manning was put on IR they made the desperate move of talking Kerry Collins out of retirement just before the season started. That does not sound like the actions of a team trying to tank, if that were the case they would have simply rolled with Curtis Painter which would have pretty much guaranteed the first pick. It should be pretty obvious by now that those playoff success was mostly due to Manning, the team around him just wasn't very good and once he was gone that was exposed.

    Tank for Tua

    They still play the games even though they are meaningless? That's really lame, sounds like a money grab and nothing more. As a fan I would have about as much interest as I would in preseason games.
