    In 2017, Foster had surgery to repair a torn rotary cuff. The same year in the NFL he misses 5 games to Grad 3 Ankle Sprain In 2018 he missed 3 games to a Grade 2 Hamstring Strain before being released. Now he has a torn ACL. Here's the truth, we took another risk on a player that can't stay healthy and he got hurt. There is no luck to this, this is a pattern.

    I liked it. Am grateful that I lived to see the end. Outstanding TV series over 10 years. I am happy with the ending. I think it's because I watched and didn't project my own storytelling into it. A little more about me. Since my stroke, I haven't read nearly as much as I used to. So TV and movies are the most meaningful now. I loved this show.

    On watching film and the whole 'first in last out' thing. There is no doubt that work ethic and 'putting in the time' is crucial for an NFL QB. Crucial. The mental requirements of mastering your own offense AND the defensive looks you will be seeing AND the adjustments based on those looks just demands it. But its 2019 people. Film can be broken down by the analysis team and sent in clips as required to an ipad/tablet - you want to see every third and 7 look from an opposing defense, here you go. Want to see how they defended every single 1st down this season when they were against 21 personnel, here you are. Want to see isolation on a specific corner and how he plays a specific route or route combination, not a problem. Watching 'film' is now much easier, much more productive - and can be done literally anywhere. The back seat of a Bentley for example ... Spending time in the facility and watching some of this with coaches and other QBs is important. But (metaphorically) sleeping on a fold up bed in the training room is not a measure of anything really.

    Dwayne Haskins made a number of impressive throws while he was on the field, and while Case Keenum had his share of good passes too, the rookie shined. Even on the surface: Haskins looks the part of a franchise quarterback, standing 6-foot-3 and 230 lbs. Keenum is listed at 6-foot-1 and 215 lbs, but that seems fairly generous. When Haskins throws the ball, it zips through the air. He can go deep and has touch on his underneath routes. Keenum gets the ball where it needs to be, but there's a difference in velocity. Let's be crystal clear, however, that one OTA session in May will not determine the starting quarterback job. While Keenum and Haskins are both learning the Redskins offense, Keenum has proved he can stand in the pocket of an NFL game and make plays. Haskins has never seen the size or speed of NFL defensive linemen. "It’s a long process and I think they both handled it well today," Redskins head coach Jay Gruden said. "Hopefully we’ll do better tomorrow and the next day and so on and so forth and I’m sure it will be a good, lengthy competition with some great players going at it." A few, unexpected things stood out with Haskins. Though he has a long windup on his throws, the ball gets out plenty fast. He also seemed quicker in the pocket than some of his NFL Scouting Combine numbers would suggest. Haskins certainly isn't fast, but he's not a plodder either. That said, Keenum does seem to have the advantage in squirting through the line of scrimmage and keeping plays alive. That's something Gruden really likes in his passers. https://www.nbcsports.com/washington/redskins/watching-dwayne-haskins-and-case-keenum-one-quarterback-definitely-stands-out

    Sweat runs a 4.4 40. Allen ran 5 dead. Payne ran 4.9. SDH is a 4.6 guy. Clemons is a 4.6 guy. I dont give a **** what 40 time Kerrigan runs he averages double digit sacks a season on his career. We have speed and talent on defense. Just need someone to figure out how to use them.

    I was just coming in here to say that we can't blame this one on the Fed Ex Field turf...but apparently the practice field sucks, too I just don't get it. I really don't. A couple years ago I'm in press box at Fed Ex and talking to someone that worked for the Cowboys. I asked him what their facilities are like and he just started going off. I don't remember the details, but he was just like, "Man, everything is first class...." and just explained how Jerry wastes NOTHING to make sure that the team facilities are palatial. From the fields, the locker rooms, they have chefs there cooking food all the time...just whatever they want, it's there. I can't imagine spending a ton of money on players and then not investing in the finest facilities to keep them as healthy as possible. It'd be like taking a Ferrari and flying down a gravel road at 90 mph, kicking up rocks, chipping the paint, dust everywhere....and then just leaving it parked outside under trees so acorns can fall on it, dent it, tree sap, etc. Take that beautiful sports car and just abuse it as much as you can. Spend a ton of money on it but don't spend anything to keep it protected and keep it looking cherry. Makes NO sense.

    I look forward to people blaming this on Gruden for not pushing them hard enough on the first play of OTA’s.

    Full conscience stream for the final episode, written as I watched. It's a long and rambling mess, so click at your own risk. You shouldn't.

    It's not just what he says here. It's how he says it. He's not tryin to look cute or act tough. He is cold-blooded, dead serious.

    John Keim‏Verified account @john_keim 1m1 minute ago Gruden said Foster stepped on the foot of offensive lineman Tyler Catalina as he rushed a gap at three-quarters speed. So much for the crappy practice field explanation...

    So I have to say, everyone here has probably seen multiple posts from me with my theory that Sam was going to wind up winning in the end. I even tied it to Roman history, for ****s sake. After Sansa shot her uncle down and Sam stood up, I thought I had it nailed. I thought he was going to launch into a passionate speech and they would turn around and make him king. I had my fingers ready to go with a post gloating how much smarter I was than the rest of you. Then they laughed at him. I was crushed. So here's my re-write of the last episode. Everything happens the exact same way it did up until the point where the lords laugh at Sam. The screen cuts to black for a few seconds. Next scene, Sam is walking out of the gates of KL, and everything and everyone is on fire again. He smirks to himself as he walks off, and in the distance, you can see a flaming wheelchair with a burning skeleton rolling down a street. End scene.

    I agree he is very predictable, especially when it comes to run vs. pass situations. And he struggles with in-game adjustments. I disagree that he doesn't have a killer instinct or that he "coaches scared", especially compared to McVay. I know this is just one aspect of "coaching scared" or not, but here's a chart on teams' decisions to go for it on 4th down last year. Note where McVay is ranked.

Gruden's offense in 2014 was hamstrung by the ineptitude of his QB's that year, and Reed was never fully healthy. In 2015-16, McVay had the best set of weapons and QB (who had finally learned how to read NFL defenses post-snap) to work with that we've had in this era before or since. In 2017, Chris Thompson was our only legitimate offensive threat. In 2018, Gruden was once again hamstrung by his QB's limitations. Gruden has shown he can lead a good offense with legitimate weapons as an OC, and can post good records when paired with a strong defense. The Bengals 9-7, 10-6, and 11-5 records from 2011-2013 is a testament to that, even with Dalton at QB. Regardless, I've never been Jay's biggest fan, and I'm still not, but it seems that this is one of those situations that is common amongst NFL fans: there are very few fanbases in the NFL happy with their OC, DC or play-calling head coach. It's the easiest thing to point out, nit-pick, and criticize as a fan, and I'm sure some of the guys around the league you consider good OC's/DC's are not considered as such by the fans of the teams they coach. I frequent a general NFL football forum and I see evidence of this all the time.
