    Yeah you're right we should all make fun and talk **** about a guy that has heart. A guy that also bust his butt for this team. Chris is a class act and maybe you should try to learn something from him.

    For Immediate Release August 8, 2019 STATEMENT BY SONNY JURGENSEN ON RETIREMENT: "I've decided to hang up my headphones and my clipboard. It's been a great 55 years in Washington. I want to thank our Redskin fans for being so generous to me and our teams, we owe it all to you. I've had so many wonderful memories of thousands of teammates I've played with and talked about during my years in radio and television in Washington D.C. The relationships with coaches and executives over the 50 years like Bill McPeak, Otto Graham, Edward Bennett Williams, Vince Lombardi, Jack Kent Cooke, Joe Gibbs, Bobby Beathard, Bruce Allen and Dan Snyder have been special. My special broadcast partners such as Sam Huff and Frank Herzog and later with Larry Michael, Chris Cooley and Doc Walker on radio and the great TV talents such as Glenn Brenner and George Michael. We lived through the glory years together -- the NFC East championships and five Super Bowls, all great memories. And I would be remiss if I failed to mention my good friend Andy Ockershausen who was responsible for bringing together the original broadcast team of Sonny, Sam and Frank. After 62 years in professional football, I still have my health and wonderful family with a special thanks to my beautiful wife Margo for letting me work the weekends for all those years. I'll always be a fan of professional football and appreciative of all that it has done for me, my family and our city. I'll leave you with these word, Hail to the Redskins!"

    Callhan will have to really work on his pad level in the run game. I think he gets excited and trusts his upper body strength too much. He wants to bury his man and you can't always do that. Watch the film again. Note that on a lot of run plays his helmet is higher than his opponent. Ok for a tackle. Not good for a guard. A good guard is a knee bender. I tell my guard's that if they can't see the defender's chin strap then they're playing too high. If he tries that vs Ionnaidas, Payne, Allen, or even Settle he's going to be knocked on his ass. Hopefully that will happen early on so he'll realize what he needs to do. (He should watch film of Brandon Scherff; who almost always has his helmet below his opponent - hence the reason he's one of the best guards in the NFL.) It can definitely be fixed though and I attribute his bad habit to his aggressive mentality. I think he gets excited and wants to big boy his man. He has a good first step to cut off back side 1 tech; gets his helmet between the defender and the ball and gets that second power step up-field in a hurry. That's not an easy thing to do and too often we've seen our LG miss and the poor RB wondering how in the hell he got hit from behind so quickly on an outside zone run. On play side he does a good job on combos. Not super athletic in the open field but really in today's scheme you'd rather for your lineman to get in the way of defenders and impede their progress. Pancakes are nice but it's more important to screen the defender and let the RB read it out. I really like his mental acuity and footwork in pass pro. He maintains a wide base and, iIronically, he does get his butt down in pass pro after he anchors. (He'll need to anchor sooner tho vs NFL talent and I'm sure he'll realize that in training camp). He does a really good job of recognizing stunts and passing off his man. He stays active and doesn't just guard grass. He looks for work. Overall, I like the kid and not having seen Flowers play guard yet I'd give him the edge (based on potential) to be the week 1 starting LG. P.S. Watch his hand placement. Experts talk so much about it for defenders but really it's just as important for offense. He does an excellent job of keeping his hands in the chest. Which will negate a lot of holding calls and will help him to maintain control of his man. He does a good job of mirroring with his feet too.

    So what I'm reading is that he hasn't allowed any sacks or pressures at guard. I like it.

    Someone tell this guy that if he wants to be taken seriously he needs to say more than just "mod edit" in every post.

    Guys, I was at the game taking my nephew to the game and we were talking about how the punting was the favorite part of the game for him (because he can see the ball in the air) and I’m not sure if he heard me or if was just coincidence he walked over and handed us a game ball...

    Hello, Dum dums. I don't post as much these days. because come on. Talking about a terrible team on 1998 web tech makes my already sad existence all the worse. But this Guice thing has momentarily allowed me to shake the ennui and state a few things. I would say that for nearly all of Snyder's tenure - but especially during the Allen Era - we have tried to out-clever the league. We absolutely love signing other teams #1 picks who have flamed out. We love drafting dudes with an injury history who can be all-pros if they can just stay healthy. Way back in time, Vinny Cerrato's favorite thing to do was draft players "graded as a first round talent" in the third round - without ever seemingly asking why someone with that grade fell to the third round in the first place. Guice is an all-world talent. But he slipped to late in the second round because he was hurt his junior year and because he was apparently seen as "extremely sketch" as the kids probably never said. Then he got hurt. Now he's hurt again. At this point, his entire life since his junior year in college is question of "can he stay healthy?" and "can he stay out of trouble?" I think a team can take chances with one of those two questions. The Skins take chances on both of those questions constantly - often in tandem. Do I think the medical staff is bad? Yes. Why? Because everything on the Skins is broken. Snyder has created a Synergy of Suck. We take extremely risky players. And then put them in the worst possible environment with the least support possible. I don't really want to rehash the RGIII saga, but it really lays this out beautifully, and it explains how nothing ever truly changes. RGIII was legitimately a once in a generation NFL talent. But our head coach at the time probably never really wanted him. He made that pretty clear by drafting another young QB in the same draft even with the organization sacrificing a ton of its future draft capital to get RGIII in the first place. Then he had that year. That year was probably a bit of smoke and mirrors thanks to a really bizarre and likely unsustainable offense. But regardless. That year. Anyway, the coach was always unsure on him, but the owner adored him. This happens over and over and over again here by the way. RGIII gets hurt, and our sketchy medical staff throws him back on the sketchy field because our sketchy grounds crew can't keep our sketchy stadium functioning. And our sketchy coach doesn't really protect him. And he gets really hurt. Since the Skins are a marketing company disguised as a football team, RGIII's rehab is turned into a reality show. And guess what? it totally doesn't work. Who saw that coming? And he leaves here in the ugliest manner possible which triggers into Shanahan leaving in the ugliest manner possible which eventually leads to us hiring a really sketchy guy as a GM who is incredible as long as he's not drunk. Lo and behold, he's drunk. Who could have seen that coming? I'm not going to rehash Snyder's catalogue of horrors. But everything bad here elevates all the other bad stuff. Maybe we could take headcases and injury-prone dudes if our coaches, front office, and medical staff worked in perfect tandem. Maybe we wouldn't have knee injuries galore if our facilities weren't 25 years behind the times. Maybe our coaches and medical team could make better decisions if the owner didn't constantly buddy up to players and empower them to make decisions that may not necessarily be in their or the team's best interest. As I said, it's a synergy of suck. And we live in the middle of it. If I was Om (memba him?), this is where I hit my signature sign-off of Hail. But I already have a signature intro that none of you even know is my signature intro. Because I don't write much. Because you don't deserve me. Anyway, beat the Cowboys.

    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.

    2019 Edition... The Good: Case Keenum - The second half wasn't great, but the guy looked pretty solid all in all. He reminds me of a slightly riskier Alex Smith. I like him. The offensive line - While it's not the next coming of the Hogs, they really held up better than they had any business to. The receivers (counting tight ends)- At least in the first half. They looked really good. But once the wheels fell off they went into dear in headlights mode a little bit. McLaurin - Separate shoutout because he was fantastic. Inside Linebackers - MUCH better. They ranged, they tackled very well and even in coverage they got beat but were in the right spots. Wentz had some phenomenal throws. The Meh: Landon Collins - Had two big tackles but otherwise he was a non factor. The defensive line - when they were good they were real good. They snuffed out a few plays before they even started and punished the Eagle backs. It was really an awesome sight. The reason these guys are meh is because of the pass rush. 90, 52 & 91 were no where to be seen. The Bad: Jay Gruden - Awful game. Getting conservative and running twice in a row on a key drive was a drive killer. Making Peterson inactive is indefensible. Lack of meaningful adjustments coming out of halftime is an abomination. Greg Manusky - I realize the Eagles have three serious receiving threats... But you didn't really blitz, so to be honest, there is absolutely zero reason Desean Jackson shouldn't always have a safety over the top of him... or at least shaded over the top of him. The Secondary - Norman got beat once, but I don't think he's the problem in the secondary. A lack of a free safety is glaring. Nicholson had a few good plays, but he was playing more like a strong safety than a free safety in the sense that he was playing up rather than center field and seeing things around him. He has to be better. Injury to Allen - This had a bigger impact on the team than many think. Overall impressions: I think the Redskins are a better team than they have been. However, with the way this team was coached and some of the decisions that were made, I'm not sure that matters for their ability to contend. Unless things drastically change we are looking at yet another 5-8 win season mired in more mediocrity. NEW ADDITION THIS YEAR!!! Star of the Game - Terry McLaurin *** Second Star - The Inside Linebackers ** Third Star - Vernon Davis/Case Keenum * Dud of the Game - Jay Gruden Second Dud - Greg Manusky Third Dud - Bruce Allen (just because) Season Totals: Terry McLaurin - 3 stars The Inside Backers - 2 stars Vernon Davis - 1 star Case Keenum - 1 star Bruce Allen - Greg Manusky - Jay Gruden -

    4.5 years ago, the mods allowed me to make a few completely unrelated posts when my oldest had a great interview at VCU dental, and an elated update when she was accepted. Proud Daddy moments just make you want to bust if you can't share. I appreciate the indulgences very much. ....so with all that said, Today she became a Doctor. Carry on, just had to have my Daddy moment #proud daddy
