  1. I guess the closest comparison you can make is the outrageous contracts first round rookies were getting that ultimately lead to the rookie pay scale. I believe it was Sam Bradford's huge contract that was the tipping point there. Even veteran players were wondering why these rookies were getting so much when they hadn't played a down in the NFL. Hadn't even set foot on a practice field. I can see a correction coming, but I don't know how they can correct it. The veteran players and the players union are definitely not going to agree to a pay scale.
  2. That's not how I took the quote. To me, he is saying that, though he wants to be seen and play in the same vein as the likes of Brady and Brees one day, Haskins knows in his heart of hearts, he's not there yet. It will take a lot of work and effort to get there. I guess, to me, that is refreshing. How many QBs have we seen come into the league and think they can just be great, day one, on talent and athleticism alone? The fact that this young kid understands that there is a whole lot more to it than that, is what I was highlighting.

    ***2019-2020 NBA Offseason Thread***

    Well, with the Redskins, you've had 25 years of character building. You must be the most model citizen in the world.
  4. Here is a good article about Haskins by John Keim at ESPN (courtesy of Wildbunny's Breaking News Board): https://www.espn.com/blog/washington-redskins/post/_/id/38595/jay-gruden-dwayne-haskins-talent-obvious-deserves-a-shot-to-start I like this part: Sounds like he has a good head on his shoulders. That talent alone won't make him elite. It will take hard work and time. I like this too:
  5. Another reason they are so good in the red zone is because they have Andrew Luck.
  6. Congrats to DeAngelo Hall. I guess. Some of the programming on the NFL Network is pretty cringy.

    The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    I read more about it in this article here (again, courtesy of Wildbunny's Breaking News Forum): https://riggosrag.com/2019/06/13/redskins-hire-football-strategy-analyst-indicating-shift-toward-analytics/ Interesting. The article makes it sound like new OC Jerry O'Connell was angling for this. Wonder if this hiring was his suggestion?

    The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    Here's an article about the scouting changes in the Redskins' front office (courtesy of Wildbunny's Breaking News Forum): https://www.nbcsports.com/washington/redskins/redskins-announce-number-changes-front-office-scouting-staff It also says the Redskins hired someone named Connor Barringer as a football strategy analyst. What is that?

    The current status of the Redskins o-line.

    Huh.. I thought he made one. Oh well. My originial point is the same. Just minus one Pro Bowl appearance.

    Would you want HBO Hard Knocks to feature us this year?

    That's probably exactly why the Redskins aren't going to be on "Hard Knocks" this year. Bruch Allen seems like he prefers to keep his front office operations cloaked. He probably showed reluctance to the producers to give the type of access they wanted. I believe they will have to be on that series eventually (I couldn't care less either way), but I believe Allen will hold them off as long as he can (or as long as he is here).

    The current status of the Redskins o-line.

    If you include a sixth year (the 2014 draft), that would bring in Morgan Moses, a 3rd round pick and a pro bowler. So that would be 8 players in six years. Three of whom are now starters and two are pro bowlers. That's about a 40% success rate in finding starters, which is pretty good for a draft set-up which can be pretty shot-in-the-dark. In fact, I think it is above the average hit rate in the draft, which is usually around 35% of the time. Some of the players haven't worked out, but that is to be expected. I'll be interested to see how our rookie OL fair this season.

    The current status of the Redskins o-line.

    The thing is, as far as I know, none of these players on the OL were considered "injury prone" players when they were in the draft. So why are they all constantly getting injured now? Not that this is exclusive to the OL. This whole team has dealt with massive injuries for a couple of seasons. So for the OL, it's not a talent issue. It might be a problem with how the team practices and prepares.
