    We're going to still suck as an organization. The End.

    You guys are literally watching this situation play out with Williams and you’re still baffled that the organization can do stubborn and stupid things?

    Yikes. The Good: Tress Way - Bailed the team out more than once. Terry McLaurin - Kid is a stud. So far they aren't really using him for much besides digs and fades, but I have a feeling as his route repertoire grows, so will he. He is probably our best offensive player at the moment and he is an absolute breath of fresh air thus far this season. Flowers/Penn - We were all worried about the left side of our line. And while they aren't exactly writing the next chapter in the book, "Hogs: Ass Kicking 101," they are more than holding their own. Penn has made the loss of Williams negligible (trade him...) and Flowers has looked pretty damn good at left guard. Daron Payne - Dude might be my favorite Skin at this point. He is a problem for opposing offenses. A lot of people are higher on Allen (who has tremendous upside, to be clear), but with Allen's injury concerns Payne has been the guy that's been holding down the fort in his absence. I am a very, very big fan of what Payne brings to this team. He's aggressive, he's nasty and he doesn't care about stats. He does his job and does it well. Landon Collins - I'm not sure he belongs in good... I am putting the entire rest of the secondary in the bad, though, so I just wanted to separate him a little The meh: Seemed like they were either good or bad today. Wouldn't say there was a ton of meh. The Bad: Scherff/Moses - Yikes. What a dumpster fire. These two have combined to look almost as bad as our replacement lines the last few years. Scherff... I could buy the argument that playing next to Moses is hurting him, but both guys just seem to be regressing. Scherff is playing with a high pad level on the plays that I've watched (I'd need to watch the All-22 to get a better idea) and not using leverage. He might be having a case of trying to dotoomuchitis, but the combo of these two has been putrid through two weeks. Penalties, missed assignments. These guys are holding back a mediocre offense. But there's a guy I think who may be more to blame than them: Bill Callahan - Genius as it comes to teaching techniques. The guy is a wizard. But when it comes to implementing schemes for the run game he has, so far, been not so great. He likes complex schemes and with our injury concerns and continuity on the front I feel that is a very, very bad move. I can't get on him too much considering I don't know what happens in the meeting room, but I do know that his lines have been highly penalized and abused the last few years and its time people start looking towards Callahan a little bit. The entire secondary - Holy crap guys. Did you have a meeting the last two weeks to decide not to cover the other team's fast receivers deep? On the trips look with the out/corner/post combo that Norman is getting blamed for it looked like Nicholson was in a 1 high robber look. It looked to me that he was reading Prescott's eyes and broke on the corner route, but Dak was looking at the fade/post route. Norman was in a trail technique, so Prescott just had to throw the ball over the top and the Skins couldn't make a play on it. I'm not sure where the fault was on this... That's a coaching/film thing. But what I do know is there was a serious issue with the coverage here. And beyond that, we keep letting opposing receivers get open over the top, and it typically happens when Nicholson is playing the high safety role. Teams have keyed on something there. Fix it. Please. Manusky - soft shells. Very few blitzes/stunts/pressure packages. Poor communication around the defense. Star of the Game - Daron Payne *** Second Star - Terry McLaurin ** Third Star - Tress Way * Dud of the Game - Greg Manusky Second Dud - Right Side of the Line & Callahan - Third Dud - Secondary (minus Collins) Yes, all three dud contenders got 3 sad faces this week. Season Totals: Terry McLaurin - 5x* Daron Payne - 3x* Inside LBs - 2x* Vernon Davis, Keenum, Way - 1x* Bruce Allen - Jay Gruden - 3x Right Side of OL/Callahan - 3x Secondary (Minus Collins) - 3x Greg Manusky - 5x

    Haskins to McLaurin is a small future ray of sunshine to look forward to.

    As everyone knows, the erosion of this fanbase began long before this season started. This has been brewing for a while, when you factor in the stadium (bottom 5), the front office (bottom 3, could be the worst currently), and the coaching staff (bottom tier at best). It's not just that the stadium continues to be overrun with opposing fans at every home game that the front office should be worried about. They should also be worried about the ratings, and whose watching this team week in and week out. One disturbing trend that began to take place last year was that ratings for Redskins games locally were starting to nosedive. It became so bad that games that aired locally involving other teams (Cowboys, Eagles Giants, etc), were actually outperforming Redskins games by a decent margin. Now take a look at the ratings for the Redskins game according to Sports Media Watch. The have the ratings of each game in their metropolitan areas: — New Orleans: 51.6 (Saints-Rams)— Milwaukee: 43.7 (Vikings-Packers)— Kansas City: 39.6 (Chiefs-Raiders)— Buffalo: 36.4 (Bills-Giants)— Pittsburgh: 36.0 (Seahawks-Steelers)— Minneapolis-St. Paul: 35.2 (Vikings-Packers)— Denver: 33.1 (Bears-Broncos)— Boston: 33.0 (Patriots-Dolphins)— Philadelphia: 32.6 (Eagles-Falcons)— Dallas-Ft. Worth: 30.7 (Dallas-Washington)— Seattle: 30.0 (Seahawks-Steelers)— Chicago: 26.6 (Bears-Broncos)— Providence, R.I.: 26.3 (Patriots-Dolphins)— Baltimore: 25.9 (Cardinals-Ravens)— Nashville: 25.2 (Colts-Titans)— Cincinnati: 23.0 (49ers-Bengals)— Atlanta: 22.3 (Eagles-Falcons)— New Orleans: 19.6 (Eagles-Falcons)— Phoenix: 19.2 (Cardinals-Ravens)— Washington, D.C.: 18.3 (Dallas-Washington)— Los Angeles: 16.0 (Saints-Rams)— Milwaukee: 15.4 (Eagles-Falcons)— Bay Area: 15.0 (49ers-Bengals) As you can see, the Washington DC area averaged only an 18 rating for the Cowboys-Redskins game, which is almost unthinkable. This alarming trend continues to amplify the fact that the Redskins are in serious jeopardy of losing not just the current fanbase, but any future fanbase that you would need to sustain viability.

    The funny thing is that a properly fitted suit would make him look taller. As it is, in that picture he looks like a 12-year-old wearing his dad's suit to a school function.

    I've already decided that, God willing, I'll be the 105-year old being interviewed before Super Bowl 114 who has stuck with his Redskins since before the turn of the century, when they last won a title in 1991!! I'll be oblivious to what's going on and my great grandson will be answering questions while I weakly pump my fists and drool on national TV.

    It brings my folks and I together each time the skins play..if it means more time with my parents while there still with me I'll continue to watch.

    Dont think im gonna watch MNF. I watched maybe half of the games last year and half the year before that. Eventually you want to spend the little bit of time you actually have, doing stuff you enjoy.

    The fact that investment in public education is considered a bold/controversial proposal in this country is a fairly damning indictment of just how far down the far-right/late-stage capitalism rabbit hole we’ve gotten. See also: Healthcare

    Thank you Donald Penn, The Redskins have gone through two weeks in this 2019 season and have lost both games..but the offense has been able to score points..our quarterback Case Keenum is playing..good?...I think..and that's because of the job you are doing.. it makes me want to say Trent Williams who? But I have more respect for the Silverback than that. Thank you for your services Donald Penn!

    Just to lighten the mood siince it's depressing to be a Skins fan this week lol...some twitter responses to Kirk's Pizza Ranch commercials--between his trying to cook steaks on a cold grill, his horrid start to the season, and these commercials, I'm almost starting to feel sorry for the dude. Almost...I haven't forgotten that Kirk always seems to start slow each season so I expect him to get back on track this week and/or next: Ryan De Wit @DeWeezy11 Thanks to Kirk Cousins, Pizza Ranch will be adding turnovers to the buffet. Jamie @Graning21 Kirk Cousins would star in a Pizza Ranch commercial. Dude is the Pizza Ranch of quarterbacks. Joel Finkelman @JoelFinkelman Aaron Rodgers did Pizza Hut commercials... Kirk Cousins does Pizza Ranch... This seems shockingly accurate. TheGhostOfChrisStewart @TheStewieSprint These Kirk Cousins Pizza Ranch commercials make me really uncomfortable. Thomas Beadle @ThomasBeadle Aaron Rodgers: State Farm Eli Manning: Citizen watches Tom Brady: Aston Martin Drew Brees: Nike Kirk Cousins: ...Pizza Ranch. Grimm @grimmreality Kirk Cousins is starring in tv ads for Pizza Ranch and someone could probably come up with a more perfect symbiosis of glaring mediocrity but I'm not sure how.

    This has gone beyond my desire to watch this team and is affecting my desire to watch any kind of football, period.

    To me it's not about the losses. It's about the how... In my opinion, we are scheming very poorly defensively, not taking advantage of all that we can offensively, and committing entirely too many penalties. Losing is one thing. Losing with so much slop is another altogether.

    The Finlay article here a little whole ago, his tweet was posted, is worth a read. It's as if he reads this thread. https://www.nbcsports.com/washington/redskins/49ers-and-patriots-need-tackles-and-redskins-should-trade-trent-williams Sure, there's plenty of bad blood between Shanahan and the Redskins organization. The San Francisco coach believes the Redskins did him and his father wrong during their ugly divorce in 2013, when the organization chose Robert Griffin III over the coaching staff. Know what? Who cares. This is professional football and the front office needs to do what's best long-term for the Redskins, not hold a team back due to petty squabbles from nearly a decade ago. If San Francisco wants Trent, and makes a reasonable offer, Washington needs to listen. New England has already inquired about Trent. That happened. There was no real conversation about a trade then, but that doesn't mean there can't be now. Other teams will have injuries, and other teams certainly have needs on the offensive line. The Redskins appear to be taking a stand, refusing to bow to Williams' demands and waiting for his return. ESPN reported that could happen this week as Williams is racking up millions in fines. It's also worth pointing out that potential trade partners could be scared off if Williams is working behind the scenes in demand of a new contract. At some point, however, the organization is cutting off their nose to spite their face. Trent doesn't want to be here. It's obvious. If he wanted to be in Washington, he would be in Washington. There is another angle to this, now, after an 0-2 start that didn't apply in August or July or any earlier point in Williams' holdout. Earlier in the year, the Redskins had hope of delivering some strong on-field performances and proving they're not a team in the middle of a rebuild. At 0-2 and with a defense giving up 31.5 points-per-game, it's extremely unlikely the 2019 Redskins season ends in a playoff game. Nearly 90 percent of teams that open 0-2 don't make the playoffs. It's time for honesty in the Trent Williams situation. He wants out. Teams could use him, multiple teams, and it stands to reason the Redskins could recoup at least a first-round pick if they move Williams. Going into 2020, Washington will be looking at Dwayne Haskins at quarterback and there could be a significant amount of salary cap space to maneuver in Washington. Wouldn't an additional first-round pick help the team more in the long run? Consider, too, that even if Williams returns in 2019, he's unlikely to be happy about his contract or whatever else is on his mind in 2020. Does Washington really want to elongate this drama and deal with it all of next season? Trent Williams wants out. Teams need him. Make the deal.

    I've said this for a while now. Dan Snyder bought the Redskins because it was a good investment and he thought it would help make him rich. He keeps the Redskins because it did make him rich and looks to make him richer. All the 'football fan' stuff is BS. In 1999 he bought the Redskins for $800M and now it's estimated to be worth $3.1B. That's just the value change. He and his family have been getting paid handsomely for each year he's owned the team. Maybe here's another way of looking at it. We have one of the most outdated training facilities in the NFL that falls short of most big college football programs. We've had multiple years of higher than normal injuries. How does Dan Snyder fix this problem? he bought a $180M yacht: While we are looking at the trophy case, Dan is looking at his investment statements. In short, our goals of the team differ form the owner. We can complain about the 26+ years of football on field mismanagement, but if we were measuring the team on how it makes Dan Snyder rich it's a complete success.
