    I don't have an idea either honestly, everyone and their mother knew we loved RGlll and look how the Rams took advantage of that situation. That trade gave me some serious PTSD about trading up for QBs. I think maybe if the Giants pass on him at 6, it's time to start sending out some serious feelers. Yes, if we can use players in the trade that is the best case scenario imo. Those trades seem a bit more rare on draft day though (probably only because it's on draft day).

    The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    Long is not a good example... "With starting left guard James Carpenter done for the season due to a shoulder injury, Spencer Long will now have a chance to redeem himself in a new position. After coming over from the Washington Redskins on a four-year deal in free agency, the thought was Long would provide stability at center following a season where Wesley Johnson was among the worst in the league at the position. Instead, Long picked up where Johnson left off and turned center into a liability on the offensive line for the Jets. Against the Miami Dolphins in Week 9, Long hit a low point in his tenure with New York. Throughout the afternoon, his snaps were missing Sam Darnold by a mile and midway through the fourth quarter, he was benched in favor of Jonotthan Harrison. [...]Can Long do enough at left guard in the final weeks of the season to warrant a return to the team in 2019? That remains to be seen. If his performance against New England was any indication, the Jets may have finally found the player they inked to a $28 million deal this offseason." The Jets released him after one year, so I'm guessing the answer to that last part is "No" lol...plus he was injured all last season, so I doubt he would have remained healthy if he stayed with the Redskins.

    The Jets could use a TE... just throwing that out there.
  5. Yes, but are those ones sentenced to death,not life w/o parole? They certainly keep the one's sentenced to death pre-moratorium there since the death penalty still exists even if not currently in use.

    Sorry, who do you mean by "Bill" ? Is Bill the name of another GM we might trade with ? Or you talking about Buffalo Bills ? Maybe it's obvious, and I'm having a brain fart.

    Something to consider with QB's, age when the Season starts (according to 3sigma): Ryan Finley - 24.7 years old Will Grier - 24.4 Jarrett Stidham - 23.1 Brett Rypien - 23.1 Drew Lock - 22.8 Daniel Jones - 22.3 Dwayne Haskins - 22.3 Kyler Murray - 22.1 Comparing that list, to the age of last year's draft class when the 2018 season began: Baker Mayfield - 23.4 Josh Allen - 22.3 Lamar Jackson - 21.6 Josh Rosen - 21.6 Sam Darnold - 21.2 2019 draft class is considered to likely be worse than 2018, while also being a bit older. Now I have no idea if draft age even matters for QB prospects. It's not like they have short careers.

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

    So I was asked, "Why do I have to see the movie immediately? Why can't you see it a week later or another time? Why do you HAVE to see it opening weekend?" Well, some jerk just messaged me on Reddit and told me what happens in the end of the movie. Without me asking at all. He is just messaging random people who post on /r/marvelstudios and just sending this SPOILER. It's people like this who make me go to theater showings at 6 PM tomorrow just to be some of the first to watch it in the US just so people don't FREAKING SPOIL OTHERS WHAT A CLOWN MOVE

    I understand where you were coming from simply because even twitter news is just hearsay unless it's a direct quote. What Gruden said in that article is actually what ticked me off as a fan because it just seems like past mistakes (RG lll nightmare) are never corrected. Even if he is back by next week, the fact that they even thought that was a good idea is scary.

    I don't really have a good sense of what it will cost. If there is competition for Haskins, then yeah, it'll probably cost a fortune. If that's the case, I don't see how we can win a bidding war. But if there isn't competition for him, then someone in the top ten might not really have many trade down offers. In which case, it might not be as cost prohibitive as we fear. It sounds a little like we're laying the groundwork for a trade right now, which is smart. My hope is that we can use players to match value for the trade. Pretty much the only two guys on the roster I'd hesitate to include in a trade are Allen and Payne. The Jets probably wouldn't target them, given their roster situation. I'd absolutely deal Trent to them in order to move up.
  14. California while it still technically has the death penalty, hasn't actually executed anyone since 2006. It has over 700 prisoners on death row. Governor Gavin Newsome recently orderd a moratorium on executions, Prior to that, I think the California Supreme Court had halted executions but that was recently overturned.

    I think I can live with anything but Daniel Jones with pick 15. Trade the world and go after Murray, sit tight and draft Haskins or Lock, draft anybody else at 15, trade back and get some additional picks. If the Redskins draft Jones at 15, or heaven forbid jump up to get him, I am turning in my Redskin fan card. I can't take anymore.

  17. This Louisiana town is moving to higher ground as taxpayers foot the bill for growing climate crisis NEW ROADS, La. — At a small church meeting house this month in a Louisiana farm town, a tiny community was making a very big decision. Residents were fed up with increasingly intense and frequent flooding, so they are moving to higher ground. Together. The residents of Pecan Acres are some of America’s first climate refugees. The plan to move them could become a blueprint for other towns, as increasingly extreme weather and rising sea levels force more and more residents from the homes they’ve known for decades. Pecan Acres, a subdivision of New Roads, Louisiana, was built in the 1970s along a canal. While it was always prone to flooding, in the last decade the floods have gotten much worse and much more destructive. The area levee is no longer adequate to hold the heavier rainfall. Back-to-back floods in 2016 and 2017 drew the governor’s attention, and a plan was hatched to buy out about 40 homeowners and move them to a new plot of land, barely 2 miles away, but 10 feet higher. The option to purchase the land was signed in early April. The state is using federal funds, specifically community development block grants designated for disaster relief, to build new homes, demolish the flood-damaged ones, and turn the old neighborhood into wetlands. Doing so will protect neighboring communities from future floods, because the restored wetlands will act as a sponge. Click on the link for the full article

    Yep and at the time Anderson became an obvious selection in the second. Heck maybe if Allen hadn't fallen to us, we'd have traded back and taken Anderson slightly earlier. Anyway, Savage looks like he could be 'that' target this year. Trade back for an extra second rounder at least, OL, pick Savage, WR, then QB in their somewhere. Maybe QB, Savage, WR/OL as we drift into the third. Few nice options, including Rosen, assuming we don't shoot our wad and trade up from #15

    Yeah, rushing Colt back at the end of last season was not a smart move, even without delaying the recovery (I had not read that article until now). I don't think this recent procedure is due to rushing him back, though, especially since the article says he could be back next week.

  21. Winston Shrout, One of America's Most High-Profile 'Sovereign Citizens,' is a Fugitive Winston Shrout spent years defying the federal government as one of the country’s most high-profile sovereign citizens and tax dodgers. His latest act has made him a fugitive for the last six weeks. Shrout, a sovereign citizen who doesn’t recognize the authority of the U.S. government, didn’t show up on March 4 when he was due to report to a federal prison in Sheridan, Ore. A federal judge issued a warrant for the 70-year-old anti-government activist’s arrest. As of April 22, Shrout, with a Hillsboro, Ore., address, had not been arrested and the Bureau of Prisons, on its website, listed him as not in custody. Shrout faces 10 years in prison after being convicted of issuing fake financial documents to banks and the U.S Treasury. He also didn’t file tax returns from 2009 to 2014. Shrout’s lawyers, through motions, delayed his prison report date at least three times before the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals ordered him in to begin serving prison time.

    His accuracy is pretty damn phenomenal if I must say so, he even has accuracy on the deep ball which is telling. I think scouts are outthinking themselves when it comes to him. I could live with trading up a couple of spots to get him, but going into the top 5 is going to cost a fortune and we don't really have the talent to afford giving up those picks. Well, when have we ever done that on a consistent basis?

    I think we trade down. With the amount of our needs, it makes sense. Trade up, and we lose valuable picks we need for numerous other needs we have. And what good is a Haskins, if the team around him is weak. Trade down, we get extra picks to address those needs. Plus, there's a good chance we can still get a quality starter in Round 2. Round 1 QB's bust often, and of course, at a higher price. Round 2 is the safe way to go this year.

    Haskins's Rose Bowl film is damned good too. So many advanced traits on display. Top tier arm talent--can back foot lasers and put them on the money, can rip throw the seams against cover 3 and cover 2 shell with easy touch and velocity. Ability to make accurate pre-snap reads and see the whole field. Ability to look off primary reads to uncover them. Beautiful pocket footwork, including the ability to climb the ladder and reset. Ability to break the pocket and go off script for chunky positive plays. Great pocket presence and field vision, plays with no fear and anticipates openings without having to see them, like when he's corralling a bad snap and can This kid is a RS sophomore with only a few career starts and he's already a significantly better passer than anyone else in this class except Murray. He is a bigger talent than Rosen too. His weaknesses are normal for a young blue chip QB prospect, and they are absolutely things that he can work on to improve--developing touch on throws into the flats, developing touch on the deep ball, learning to read zone blitzes, learning when to throw it away. He is so advanced for his age and class, that he's going to be able to make a **** ton of plays and competently guide a good offense early in his career. I am 100% confident that the draftnik world is suffering from some really bad groupthink on Haskins and that they are missing on him like they missed on Watson. He is a no-brainer top 5 talent and I'm as confident in my evaluation of his strengths and weaknesses as I was with Watson and Baker Mayfield. He would transform our passing game. Instead of having this fearful, seat of the pants quarterbacking that can't do anything against bad leverage situations we would have a workhorse passer who is efficient, accurate, and legitimately powerful. Someone who puts confidence in our huddles and sidelines and leads our franchise with ability. We could be one of the NFL's blue blood teams instead of the plucky try-hards who need everything to go right just to run a half-way competent offense.

    https://www.nbcsports.com/washington/redskins/colt-mccoy-not-redskins-otas-he-recovers-another-leg-procedure-source I mean, it's all in here essentially. People come up with different conclusions after they've connected the dots, but what I get from this is that he was rushed back and it was the reason why he had this recent procedure. It's bush league to do that in hopes of fighting for a playoff spot at 6-7.
