    NYT: What Reparations for Slavery Might Look Like in 2019

    Well, fancy you quoted me Cause now I’m on the ****ter. Had time to read the article. My thoughts as follows... I am against giving anyone a blank check. I think that any social program should have an intended purpose. I suppose I’m not against reparations on the whole, just the idea of giving someone $80,000 (as the article prescribed) and saying, “here ya go!”. Now what I would probably support, is giving $80,000 to a descendant of a slave towards the purchase of a home of their choosing. That would generally speak to the 40 acres promise. I’m against simply giving land because I’d be concerned about just creating more ghettoes/housing projects. Let the people choose where the want to live. Now that is it out of the way there’s some details that are troublesome, mostly about the logistics... One: Say you have Jim Crow, he has 40 direct living descendants. You have John Crow, he has 5 direct living descendants. Do all the descendants get the same amount of money? Jim and John would have both been given 40 acres and that would have presumably been passed down through the years to their children, etc. Is it fair to give more to people with more descendants simply because they fathered more children? Two: What about descendants of slaves, such as Oprah, who simply don’t need the money? Can we have a sliding scale of what the payouts are. I’m cool with sending my tax dollars to homie stuck in the trap to help him buy a house. I’m not cool with sending my tax dollars to Oprah who has more money than god. Three: This is more of a basic thought. I imagine that it’s gonna be hard to get complete records. I’m a white guy and I can’t trace my history back more than 2-3 generations on, are you telling me that the US government has the ability to trace descendants of slaves? Seems dubious. Reparations would be ripe for abuse and fraud. Overall, I am for a plan that provides a use. As always, I’m still for plans and ideas that try and break down institutional racism. My two cents on the ****ter, time to wipe.

    139-180-1. Jay Gruden is 35-44-1. So if 39-180-1 was correct, that means our other HC had a grand 4 W in 15 years! That's at least 11 0-16 years! lol

    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.

    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). ....
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  19. 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
  21. 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.

  23. 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.
