  2. Trubisky will have season high stats, but I don't think Case will have enough time to get to HaHa's area.
  3. Smart money for the phone call is with Putin, but given how Trump and co ignore all the normal security measures, on purpose, and don't document things well, on purpose, it would not surprise me if we do not have an exhaustive list of everyone he spoke to by phone. Putin vs. the field is pretty close. I'd say MBS or some other Saudi royal family member are 2nd place. Bibi is probably in 3rd. If it is Putin, I'm guessing it has to do with the extracted spy, and some promise to expose him or something. If it's MBS or Bibi or someone in their governments, it probably has to do with Iran.

    I cried (almost uncontrollably) when I told my husband about it. Now I'll go through it again with the update. Props to folks who look out for pets too.

    Greg Manusky Why Isn't He Fired Yet?

    I think talented IDL guys should spend some time 1 gapping. If they're talented (and ours are), give them opportunities to wreck the play before it begins. We have 3 talented IDL, rotate which ones 1 gap, and the defense won't know exactly how to block the IDL every play. If all we do is 2 gap, then we have to be perfect up front, as the o-lines blocking schemes will always be sound. If we 1 gap on occasion, there's a chance the o-lines schemes fail. We aren't giving offenses the opportunity to screw up without us doing anything. You know who should be really good at some 1 gapping? Daron Payne. Alabama let him do that in 1 game and he dominated. His timed 10 yard split at the combine was Aaron Donald fast

    What in the blue hell are the Dolphins doing?

    Well, the Browns have found plenty of FAs. So, I don't think your hope is going to come true. I personally don't care how they approach a rebuild. As long as they are honest about it with everybody in the building. And if folks want out, they let them out. If you choose to stay, then you are trying to be part of the future after the reboot. If they're not being honest and/or not letting folks out of contracts who want to go elsewhere, then that's a bad look for my guys. So, interestingly, and I had to look this up, this trade was done JUST BEFORE Snyder bought the 'Skins. The draft was April 17th and 18th of 1999, and Snyder was confirmed as owner on May 26th. Casserly resigned in July of 1999. (Snyder has since said he kept the wrong guy in Norv rather than Charley. But who really knows. Charley didn't have a heck of a lot of success in Houston when he was there either. ) Here's the specifics of the trade: Traded to New Orleans 1999 first round pick (5th overall, Ricky Williams)[13] Traded to Washington[13] 1999 first round pick (12th overall, later traded to Chicago, used to select Cade McNown)[14] 1999 third round pick (71st overall, later traded to Chicago, used to select D'Wayne Bates)[14] 1999 fourth round pick (107th overall, used to select Nate Stimson)[15] 1999 fifth round pick (144th overall, later traded to Chicago, used to select Khari Samuel)[16] 1999 sixth round pick (179th overall, later traded to Denver, used to select Desmond Clark)[15] 1999 seventh round pick (218th overall, later traded to Denver, used to select Billy Miller)[15] 2000 first round pick (2nd overall, used to select LaVar Arrington)[13] 2000 third round pick (64th overall, used to select Lloyd Harrison)[13] What's missing for that list is subsequent trades. I'm not going to go through all of the details, but Charley traded up in the 1999 draft with Chicago to pick up Champ Bailey. A lot of the 1999 picks went to Chicago to move back up to pick Bailey. And apart from the way it ended, you'd have to say that wasn't a bad pick. So for Ricky Williams, they got Champ Bailey, LaVar Arrington, Nate Stimson and Lloyd Harrison. And in 2000, they started with 3 first round picks, #2 (from the Saints), #12 and #24. They got the #12 from Carolina for the Sean Gilbert trade. The 24th was their own. This was the first Vinny draft, I believe. Marty kicked him out in 2001, then he was back in 2002 with Spurrier. The 'Skins packaged the #12 and #24 to move up to #3 and select Samuels. In case anybody cared, the #12 pick was traded to the Jets, they picked Shaun Ellis, and the #24 pick was used by SF on Ahmed Plummer, a CB I don't remember at all. They also picked up Julian Peterson.
  8. Won’t happen until he loses the base. The party dumping him will lead to the voters dumping them. And I can’t think of any scenario where at least 80% of GOP voters will stop backing him.

    Erosion Of The Redskins Fanbase

    I mean- what do you base that statement on? Crowds at fed ex are dwindling. The crowd for the Dallas game may be the biggest for the year - and half of the crowd were Dallas fans. I’ll bet active members on ES are a fraction of what they were 5 years ago Has he? Wasn’t it Synder that insisted Haskins be drafted? Doesn’t sound like stepping back to me.

    The Forthcoming Recession

    As someone who made a career change to a different industry earlier this year financing airplanes & jets, what I see is very alarming. Having come from mortgage, I was used to dealing with the paycheck to paycheck crowd that have normal everyday jobs. Moving into this line of work, I see a lot of tax returns of folks making 300K+ a year via W2 that have $3K in their checking accounts, and no other real assets of note, that want to take withdrawals from their retirement to make a down payment. The shock and awe they experience when I notify them that aircraft lenders don't want to see them borrowing to borrow and expect them to have significant liquidity over and above the down payment. It's amazing to me the amount of people I see making a ton of money that wouldn't have a pot to piss in should they lose their job. It's hard to even rationalize how someone can take home $12K every 2 weeks, yet still sit on $100K of revolving credit card debt month to month.

    Greg Manusky Why Isn't He Fired Yet?

    Having a vocal spittin'-and-a-cussin' D line coach is.... kinda played out. It's almost like they end up being half cheerleaders screaming all day throwing in the odd joke and us fans love them. Sure, some kids are raw that come in here and need to learn or perfect techniques but its basically the same techniques for everyone across all teams. IMO a bigger issue than coaching, is deciding how to use the players. If he is tied to Manusky at the hip and the defense we saw in the first 2 weeks is primaryly their thinking and doing, see ya, I am not seeing any ingenuity, let alone successes (the odd Payne play aside) enough to keep Tommy above scrutiny here.

    Erosion Of The Redskins Fanbase

    Growing up as a kid, my first experience that led me to being a Redskins fan was when I was 6 or 7, didn't know anything about football, but my brother { 5 yrs older } was watching the Redskins and Cowboys playing on tv in the 70's. He was rooting for the Cowboys, so in natural fashion I began cheering for the Redskins. The Redskins won, I jumped up and down in joy, not knowing what the hec happened, and my brother hit me, I ran crying to my mom, and the rest is history. From that point on, I began following the Redskins. In high school, my most proud moment was when they beat a good and playoff bound Chargers team 40-17. Gibbs was their OC. Gibbs comes to DC, and after a rough start, got things together. The rest is history. But a damn good one. Back then, way before twitter, facebook, or Plan B, they were a perennial powerhouse, and every team in the league knew they'd be in a dogfight of a game playing the Redskins. That kind of respect just made fans like myself beam with glory even more, Other teams were good, and when one of them were to play the Redskins on MNF, it was 'must-see-tv'. It was great being a Redskins fan back then, all the winning, the Super Bowls, the great known and unknown heroes who dawned the Redskins helmet, knowing that chances were good that we were going to win the game, not even thinking about them not matching up against a hot opponent because I knew Gibbs would find a chink in their armor and exploit it, and for the most part he did. Today, my oh my how times have changed, from top to bottom. From ownership to front office personnel to players, its not about winning as much as it is about money. This is the #1 goal of any player or coach today, all of the interviews, agents going back and forth on money and years and other details, and it seems that the concept of playing the game that so many grew up loving as a kid or teenager has been replaced or re-prioritized. Losing sucks, not only for the team but for the fans and the local economy as well. Losing frequently deters fans from going to games and buying jerseys or hats, and message boards light up with negativity { justifiably so } of the ineptness of owners, coaches, players and front office personnel. This team has fallen off of the mountain top and into a deep hole below the valley, and cannot find a rope or life line to get out of it. Many different views of what is wrong about the team all echo the same sentiment; " we want a winner ", " fire X ", and other suggestions. It has turned fans against each other, and there doesn't appear to be a light at the end of the tunnel. I was fortunate enough to witness this team during its glory years, and boy was it nice to hold my head high, sporting my new Redskins cap or my Zubas { they were VERY loud BTW } knowing that my team was one of if not THE best team. Times have changed, and for the worst, and fans are giving up hope on this team ever achieving success again, and I don't blame them; I'm having the same feelings. We all know that there needs to be some fundamental changes to this entire organization, and for some, its the only thread of hope they have left with this team. I guess it is a case of a bear going into hibernation before winter; spring time will come, eventually, but thus far it has been one long ass winter.

    Redskins vs Bears Prediction Thread: Monday Night Meltdown?

    Jumping a game ahead but winning would add some juice to the Giants game which already has a fun subplot. “I’ve got a lot of animosity toward [the Giants]. But when that week comes down, that’s when I’m going to let that loose. I’m over it. But once that week comes, all that aggression is going to come back.” As Collins spoke in the Redskins’ locker room, a nearby teammate looked over and raised his eyebrows, surprised at Collins’ candor. “I don’t give a [expletive],” Collins said. *** Collins wasn’t the first. ...In 2016, Gettleman rescinded Norman’s franchise tag, making him a free agent. He quickly signed with Washington. Like Collins, Norman was frustrated by Gettleman’s delivery — or lack thereof. “He did it without even talking to anyone,” Norman said. “I wish we had a conversation or something. But no. How is that respect and dignity? He’s full of [expletive]. I mean, you know that, right? How is it dignity when you find out through the news? Is that dignity? Is that his way of calling that dignity? “That’s the type of guy he is. It’s nowhere near giving somebody dignity, when you do something like that. That’s B.S. Do you think that’s giving someone dignity? If the guy was doing his job the right way, I feel like we probably would still be in there [in Carolina], and we would’ve won a championship or something by now.” ...Ex-Giants offensive tackle Ereck Flowers is in Washington, too, after Gettleman released him midway through last season. Flowers struggled with the Giants, so the move made sense. Flowers’ frustration with Gettleman actually stems from the GM not shipping him out sooner. “I had actually been asking him [for clarity],” Flowers told NJ Advance Media “That was part of the reason why I didn’t go to [voluntary workouts in 2018]. I was looking for a fresh start. He had [trade] offers for me, and he didn’t want to take them. So he made me stay there, until finally I had a chance to go. I was mad about it, but it’s OK. I’m over it.”

    Erosion Of The Redskins Fanbase

    52 years old and I'm getting ready to sell my Redskins memoribikia and get rid of my Redskins shrine. Of course all of my stuff is from the glory years so at least they have value unlike the **** show from the last 20 years. I no longer get emotional watching this team. That's all you need to know.
  16. If I was Dak I would have been licking my chops seeing our crack medical staff clear DRC back out onto the field. To say he was limping around noticeably presnap is almost an understatement. Yep another player after being injured was sent back out there and ended up on IR. Any last few stragglers still think that Trent is only holding out for more money.

    The Official Washington Wizards Thread: The JOHN WALL ERA

    Delle Donne reportedly got MVP, glad to see them as good as theyve probably ever been, hard to ignore and not respect. Was at the elimination game last year, if they make finals again, I'll go again. I dont find WNBA as entertaining as NBA, but when you there you lose track of that. Same way I felt first time going to DC United game. What's it going to mean if every team Ted owns wins a championship before the Wizards? Is that reason for hope or a warning?

    I believe our next Head Coach should be a defensive minded coach. Correct me if I'm wrong, but we always seem to go with the offensive minded coach as Head Coach. I think Pettibon, was the last defensive minded coach we had. I also realize that he did not work out so great either once he became Head Coach. If we were to go this route next year I think it would also help in Haskins development.

    Hell yeah. I can't remember, it was either Costner's No Way Out of Under Siege...first time I saw bewbs. Eleniak was a bombshell in that movie. Casey Ryback is a bad man and one helluva chef Kodi has had some major changes over the past 6 months. A lot more stable again. And streams that actually work. Real Debrid is a MUST, though.
