    For Immediate Release October 16, 2019 LANDON COLLINS NAMED NFC DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK LOUDOUN COUNTY, Va. – The National Football League announced today that Washington Redskins safety Landon Collins has been named the NFC Defensive Player of the Week for his performance in the team’s Week 6 win against the Miami Dolphins. The honor is the fourth of Collins’ career and his first as a member of the Redskins. It is his first selection since Week 11 of the 2017 season. He is the 37th Redskin to receive the NFC Defensive Player of the Week honor since the award’s inception in 1984. Collins becomes the first Redskin to be selected since linebacker Keenan Robinson in Week 7 of the 2014 season, and he is the first Redskins safety to receive the honor since LaRon Landry did so in Week 5 of the 2010 season. Collins finished the Week 6 contest against the Miami Dolphins with 12 tackles (10 solo), including one for a loss, one sack, one forced fumble and two passes defensed. Collins finished tied for second in the NFC in total tackles and was tied for first in the NFC in solo tackles. He was one-of-two players to record a forced fumble and multiple passes defensed in Week 6 and was the only player in the NFC to register a sack, a pass defensed and a forced fumble. It was Collins’ first sack since the 2016 season, and it was his sixth-career game with multiple passes defensed. Collins was one-of-12 players in the NFC this week to register multiple passes defensed, and the forced fumble was the fourth of Collins’ career. Through six games this season, Collins has registered 55 tackles (39 solo), including four for loss, one sack, one forced fumble, two passes defensed and one quarterback hit. He has started in all six games this season and has led the team in tackles twice this season. Collins is the first Redskin this season to receive NFC Player of the Week honors. He entered 2019 having earned NFC Defensive Player of the Week honors three times in his career. He earned the award in Week 7 and Week 9 of the 2016 season and in Week 11 of the 2017 season as a member of the New York Giants.

    Redskin top cap hits thanks to Allen: Alex Smith zero snaps this year, Josh Norman- poor performance this year, Trent Williams- zero snaps this year, Ryan Kerrigan- down year, Landon Collins- got Defensive Player of the week, Jordan Reed- probably will not return and did not play after concussion, Paul Richardson- not productive and injured last year. Bruce Allen has not produced a decent roster. No current Head Coach would agree to this job unless Allen was replaced. We have mediocre talent and that is because he looks for players he can sign who would be cheap after coming back from injury. Love the running back from Stanford is a great example- no snaps this year. The General Manager has to give his coaches a fighting chance to succeed each season and Gruden had no chance to be successful this year given this roster. I am not defending Gruden and the mistakes he made either. I am sure he totally burned out and he did goofy stuff at the end just so they would let him get out of prison finally.

    Top 5 Comedies Princess Bride Space Balls Caddy Shack Animal House Young Frankenstein The criteria I decided to use is comedy whose lines were so good that the language became part of everyday speech. Each of these, for a time, developed a series of catch phrases echoed throughout our lives. Several became so popular that I wonder if people realize their comedy movie origins.

    According to the Washington Post- The Nationals' Game 4 win over Cardinals drew a 14.8 rating in the Washington television market, the highest-rated Nationals telecast in the area ... By comparison, last Sunday's Redskins-Miami Dolphins game, broadcast by Fox, drew a 14.2 local rating, also, it was the least televised NFL matchup of the weekend. And remember, the Nats game was broadcast on TBS as apposed to one of the major networks

    I'm certain he's saying that as well. However, Jay was his guy, the guy he chose to extend, the guy Dan has to pay to play golf and do radio shows right now, and next season as well. Jay is the guy where if he was such a tragedy as a head coach that let the inmates run the asylum, both Bruce and Dan should have been more than aware of that after all this time. They should have been aware of it before they agreed to extend him. No matter which way you slice this thing up, both Bruce and Dan look like the idiots they are. Why us? Just why?

    And you know he has Dan convinced we're still in it this year since the eagles and cowboys are floundering at 3-3 right now. His narative is we're just 2 games back. We're close now that we got rid of problem Jay.

    One of my biggest qualms with the press corps that covers the Skins is their inability to ask follow up questions. They get a shot at Bruce once every few years, and while some of the opening inquiries were good, when they received boilerplate platitudes, there was no follow up to make him answer truthfully (or at least squirm). Don’t just ask if there have been any inquiries about Trent, follow up by asking why there has been no accommodation on our part. If Bruce knows that Trent won’t be here at all, or only for a meaningless late season span to accrue his contract year. If Bruce knows that in the off-season Trent’s value will recede as teams look to a strong OT draft and FA to fill holes, without the in season urgency to plug a hole immediately, and that at that point we’ve also lost a full year of control of Trent, and have added a year to his playing age... then Bruce should be compelled to give this fan base an answer for WHY there has been no response from this organization to other team’s inquiries about Trent. As another poster said, this is organizational malpractice that sabotages the present and future of our franchise. Under Bruce’s watch we have been fleeced twice for 2 Andy Reid castoff QBs, have mortgaged the future in an unprecedented way to draft a failed QB in RG3, have franchise tagged a QB in a way never done before in the history of the league, and then let him walk for nothing, and that doesn’t even take into account the horrid overall record and lesser failures on Bruce’s watch. And yet, of all those colossal blunders, a failure to get a return on Trent would be Bruce’s signature move. #FireBruceAllen

    Probably not the place for this discussion, but talent can be wildly subjective when we're talking about building a team. It's not uncommon for a player to perform poorly on one team and play better elsewhere. Sure there are players that are straight badasses in any scheme, but they are few and far between. I don't believe in letting any head coach not named Belichick have full control of personnel, but there has to be a marriage between the coach's vision and the GM's execution. If the two parties aren't working in sync, the likelihood that you can end up with a bunch of pieces that don't really work together is high. Of course there is more to it than just that, and KDawg hit on it as well. None of this is to say that Jay is a great or poor coach, it's just to say that there is a lot more to it than just coaching em' up.

    Wait you don't have the Skins going to the SB every year? Please turn in your fan card as you leave ES. How is it you think I am not for real and not a true follower? I have been following football since I got interested in it while in high school. That was back in 1984. Is there a fan rule book that says one is not supposed to wish, regardless of how absurd or unattainable it might be, that their team goes up instead of down? Why do people root for failure for a better draft pick? Is it guaranteed that if they do they will win the SB the very next year? You might have a problem with the hard ending. I have no issue with how the season ends. If it ends up better then expected. GREAT. If not, oh well, next year. Life goes on. I live for any given Sunday, for about 3 hours. Then I live rest of my life by spending time with my kids and wife and of course work. As for Snyder comment, you don't have to buy ****. I don't go to the games (FedEx field sucks), plus I have a better view on my TV while my wife brings me food (who wouldn't want that...lol). Your dream will never happen if you don't dream.

    This should be a yearly topic - as there is always a handful of hopium fans that look at records and mathematical situations and forget to look at actual things that matter / you know like talent , coaching, match ups. You know REAL stuff that factors into those imaginary numbers you’re creating in your alternate universe. funny thing is that after a decade other than 1 year - the facts lay themselves out exactly as they are every time. Yep - win 5 more games , that will really help draft position. If you think this team can beat the 49ers then go for it. I’ll bet you’re the same people on here ****ing and moaning about how bad this team is come Sunday night. Then back trying to show “ we only need this and this to happen and we’re still in this thing”. Makes most people that are realists and true followers of the game just laugh and shake their head while reading this fantasy land crap - but you keep dreaming harder Just makes the end that much harder to deal with. Snyder looooves those perpetual dreamers. Especially if you keep buying what he’s shoveling.

    See breaking news section about Skins fan who paid for the banner to Fire Allen at the stadium in Florida yesterday. He is a hero to this exhausted and disappointed fan base. I am sure someone told Snyder about the banner even if he did not see it himself. Hopefully his wife told him. Allen probably made sure the Danny never went outside at all. Just got into the limo and headed for the airport.
