  1. Past hour
  2. Thats what I’m saying. This is exactly what they have all been expecting for the last 2 years at least. I think the better strategy was to be prepared for at least what they were expecting to happen. Especially when you knew for a week it was going to release on your Easter weekend if that’s your excuse.
  3. I’m mainly talking about Congress and specifically the House, not the candidates. It’s two totally different considerations, for sure. None of the candidates are in the House, so, i agree, they should say something quicker because, at the end of the day, it doesn’t really matter in terms of impeachment actually happening or not. There is definitely room for disagreement here. What do you think is gained by doing it so quickly? Just the optics of being viewed as decisive? I see that POV, but again, would rather the decision be thoughtful and strategic, not fast. Frankly, from a purely political standpoint (which I don’t think is the only consideration) if they do it, better to do it closer to the election, not 20 months before. Kill a few months with hearings, keep it in the news, let it plague Trump for a good bit. Let some of the other open matters being investigated by SDNY and others churn. Just my 2 cents.
  4. What has this report changed exactly that they make sure everyone is clear on? It’s mostly a confirmation of exactly what we thought it was going to be over the last two years. And the response is see you after Easter? Is is it really asking to much to have a plan in advance just Incase the report is exactly what we think it is? (it blows me, yes. Have you never heard the term or are you picking up the 4/20 thing?)

    Happy 4/20 y’all!
  6. I feel y’all, but I didn’t say yell impeach the moment the report drops. I said I want them to have some kind of concrete plan. Y’all can’t tell me what the Dems are thinking and to me that’s a problem. I should have known what the plan was depending on the circumstances weeks in advance and been able to put them out in the public once some leadership (now, obviously) was neesesary. There needs to be some unified messaging. There is none. Doesnt have ave to be impeach. if they really think we need to Subpoena everyone involved then why not have those prepared already? We knew months ago they wanted to talk to Muller...why are we will waiting for that plan? I understand it’s Easter weekend. I think this is more important, personally. I would have at least let the public know that we plan to talk to everyone quoted under oath again. I would have had SHS in there yesterday.
  7. Call Mueller to testify in front of Congress. Then move forward with impeachment. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.latimes.com/opinion/editorials/la-ed-mueller-congress-20190420-story.html%3foutputType=amp The Democratic leadership should move quickly on this. They've said numerous times they're the adults and that they can walk and chew gum at the same time. So prove it now.

    2019 Comprehensive Draft Thread

    The Giants can't be that stupid... To be honest. If we find a good QB in this years or next years draft...we kinda have the upper hand. Jones is not a good QB prospect and Wentz & Prescott will kill cap room for the other two teams. But yeah. Been to long a Redskins fan to really believe that

    2019 Comprehensive Draft Thread

    Just listened to Cooley's podcast with Keim on it. Some tidbits Cooley doubled down on liking Hockenson and Marquise Brown. Though agreed with Keim that a pass rusher would be good at 15. He seemed to like Burns but didn't elaborate on it. He likes Devin Bush as does Keim and they talked about how Dallas' defense was transformed with having 2 stud MLBs. Cooley likes the idea of having 2 fast MLBs in their 3-4. Cooley also doubled down much harder on not liking Noah Fant. He has said in a previous podcast that he's overrated and thinks he's really raw. As for another receiver Cooley liked he mentioned AJ Brown but doesn't like him to the degree that he likes Marquise Brown. He doubled down on not taking Metcalf until the 2nd round, he thinks he's too raw to be in the first. Keim doesn't think they take a QB but wouldn't be stunned if they took Daniel Jones at 15. And hinted for the 2nd time they like Jones better than Drew Lock. That stemmed off Cooley saying he doesn't think Jones has it in him to be an upper half of the league QB but he wouldn't be surprised that of all the QBs in this draft he'd be the most pro ready for this season. Keim doubled down that pro ready is the be all and end all for them this draft. Cooley said he likes Cody Ford and really likes Risner but doesn't want to take a guard in the first round. He said Risner is his fav player in the draft. Keim agreed as to no guard in the first round. Cooley doubled down on Flowers won't cut it at LG. From a Keim article today All of these thoughts frame the way Washington will approach the draft and what it's looking to build. Gruden has a vision; it started to become a reality last season but only for a short time. They need it for 16 games. "We received the opening kickoff, we get two or three first downs, we chew up some clock, we punt it, we back them up, we get the ball back, we play field position and we win games 20-17 or 23-16," he said. "It was a great recipe for us early. I like playing that way."
  12. I disagree. They had 2 years to brainstorm the top 5 likely outcomes and have a strategy for moving forward with each one. Also, the Mueller report clearly makes the case for obstruction. Them waiting shows a lack of ability to act quickly and decisively with an issue that is presented. Not exactly a good quality in my opinion, especially for candidates for president.
  13. Infinity War was terrible. It is made for the ADD generation and was all over the place with no cohesion until WOW, all of a sudden everyone is together! I agree about Winter Soldier - that movie completely caught me off guard as to how much I liked it. I'm not a Marvel mark anymore though and can't stand comic book movies anymore, they completely have oversaturated the market with them. I also agree about Bumblbee. That movie was fantastic. It was clearly geared more in a 'kiddy' manner but I was okay with that and just all around enjoyed the **** out of it. I agree too that after seeing that it makes you think about how good earlier movies could have been if done in that fashion. It also makes me want a Transformers movie that takes place in Cybertron or space and focuses on the Transformers and not humans. Those scenes in the movie were great. The Silence - 4/10 - snooze fest that I was hoping would be better but A Quiet Place is much better than this movie. The little creatures were pretty cool though. The acting was so bad in a lot of it though and just all around the plot was silly and not much happened, with some huge cliches. The saving grace was it was only 90 minutes long.

    Nothing? Didn’t their keeper bounce a ball off one of their defenders to gift you a win a couple of weeks ago. Ungreatful.
  18. I’m in the opposite camp. I would hope the adult leadership would take their time, absorb the actual report (not just the headlines or their preconceived assumptions of what might be in the report) and carefully consider their options. This is too important to do it off the cuff, and there are a lot of different things to consider and a lot of people that need to have input. I don’t see a ton of benefit to doing something quickly over doing it strategically. Also, can we maybe not falsely equate the 72 hours since the report was released to 13 years? Everyone needs to take a deep breath and remember that people thrive on twitter because their thoughts fit into 280 characters and often much less. Edit: also, it “blows” you?

    Reuben Foster Will Not Be Suspended!!

    It seems fairly illogical to be against this move at this point. We got him for nothing. I wasnt a fan of drafting him in the first round, but to grab this talent at little compensation makes sense. If it doesn't work out, we lose nothing.

    Also would prevent the Redskins, from whatever chance there is/was, from making the foolish moving of selecting Jones at 15. If the team did that, I think I'd just have to walk away for two years while the team just sucks and goes nowhere. It's arguably worse than when the Vikings took Christian Ponder at #12. You know its not going to work, you know people are going to get fired, and it's going to set back the franchise years. Added bonus of watching it happen to the Giants, who seems to be an absolute dumpster fire right now.
