  1. My "bias" to Haskins is based on football... and nothing else. Haskins played just 14 college games at OSU. I wouldn't have drafted QB at 15 that had so little college game experience and expect him to excel immediately in the NFL. Additionally, he played for OSU... where he played one, maybe two relatively competitive games a year against similarly talented teams and the rest were against patsies he dominated due to their lack of similar talent. Daniel Jones, conversely, played 3 full years at Duke and played in a pro-style offense under the tutelage of Cutcliff. He was immersed in a relatively NFL-like atmosphere in terms of their offense and QB coaching. It's showing on Sundays. For the record, I didn't like any of the QBs in the 2019 draft. Even if Jones had fallen to 15, and Skins absolutely wanted a QB, I would have preferred they trade down into the late 1st to get him.
  2. All of you pining for Haskins and miffed why no Redskins coach seems interested in playing him. Has it ever crossed your minds that these coaches are seeing things in Haskins that they absolutely hate, things they know will get him killed and guarantee losing efforts. Remember, Haskins has only 14 career starts and looked to the sideline to a coach that gave him the play and protections.... and the Wide Receivers looked to their coach to give them routes. That's way different than getting a play in a helmet, calling the play, then setting the protection at the line. Finally... and I'm only speculating here.... I'm not sure coaches like his demeanor, study habits, and body language. Perhaps he's just not getting it. He might have the prettiest ball in the world.... but might be kind of a mental midget and struggling with the playbook, protections, and reading defenses. As for me, I hate his marble mouth and I absolutely detest him hawking his brand having done absolutely nothing in the NFL. I for one hope he's evaluated and that the new coach determines, in the offseason, whether there is enough there to work with or decides.... after reviewing tape and listening to the coaches who have been around him.... that he's just to much of a project and they decide to look elsewhere in next year's draft.

    Erosion Of The Redskins Fanbase

    I tweeted this last night. Arrived at a Buffalo Wild Wings last night in Richmond VA to catch the game. 15 minutes before kickoff and the place was empty... as in not a single person sitting at the bar and only a table or two occupied. This, in the heart of what used to be Redskins "country" Central Virginia... for a Monday Night Game. This, in the city that hosts the Redskins Training Camp each year. It was startling! And those that did meander in... probably a dozen Redskins fans and half a doze Bears fans... only the Bears fans were excited. More Skins fans I talked to either didn't care.... or were hoping for a blowout in order to hasten the removal of Jay Gruden and more importantly... Bruce Allen. I'm afraid 20 years of losing has eroded the fan base beyond repair. It will take a decade of winning, ala the New England Patriots, to even have a chance to shift back the fan base.

    Redskins vs Bears Prediction Thread: Monday Night Meltdown?

    28-10. Game starts at 8:15 but Redskins don't get off the bus until 8:45 and down 14-0. Huckster Gruden smirks, shrugs, and shows his "Gruden Face" while Skins offense sputters and defense lays down in second half. Skins score 3 in 1st half... late garbage TD in second half. Mutiny tomorrow... Gruden says "we have to play better".... and on to New York they go. Daniel "Danny Dimes" Jones looks like the second coming of Joe Montana and Skins fall 35-10. Should I continue.....

    Redskins vs Eagles Prediction Thread: 2019 Kick-Off Spectacular

    Redskins stay close with Eagles for a half... then Wentz "Houdinis" himself out of a game changing sack and manages a broken play TD. Redskins press.... the wheels fall off... and Skins lose big. Week #2: Dallas scores late because Redskins Offense can't move the chains and the Skins D gets worn down from being on the field the entire 2nd half.

    2019 Comprehensive Draft Thread

    What if all this Haskins / Jones stuff is just smoke... and the Redskins really have decided to go BPA from their board or trade down to realize more value with 2nd & 3rd round picks? What if they really like a 2nd Tier QB like Grier, Finley, or Stidham? Hell... what if all along they've coveted Rypien or Stick and have just kept it all under wraps. Then I woke up, punched myself in the face, and turned on the NFL Network to watch the impending train wreck that is a Bruce Allen led draft.

    2019 Comprehensive Draft Thread

    Can't help get the W (Dub) if he's always in the tub. Brown is talented, but always seems to pull up lame each year. Give me Deebo or #TheCondor (Butler) in the 2nd.

    2019 Comprehensive Draft Thread

    Here's my take: All this talk of a 1st Rd. QB is a head fake...Skins don't like any of them enough to pull the trigger in the 1st. I think the Skins are content to BPA or trade back and get a QB in 2020 or Rosen. In fact, the moment Cardinals take Murray with #1, their leverage is lost and will dump Rosen for whatever they can get. Teams will know they have lost faith in him and aren't going to pony up more than a 3rd... maybe not even that. So Skins take Edge in Rd. 1, WR in Rd 2, BPA in Rd 3 (+2), and look for OL help later on Day 3. As for QB? A developmental guy. I think they like Finley or Stidham. My sneaky hunch? They like Easton Stick because he's run a pro offense and wins, is proficient in RPO and RO, but they want him Rd. 5 or later.
  9. And you'd be lighter in the wallet Master Blabber. I've been watching football for 45 years and have a pretty good grasp of what identifies as good technique vs. bad technique. It's why I used the term "catching".. because that's what Flowers is doing. "To piggyback on your post, the other benefit of AP is the work ethic he possesses. He can show Guice how to be a pro." Which National NFL personality did you get this from? Kay Adams?
  10. I notice he "catches" a lot of D-Lineman and his instinct is to put his hands outside on their shoulder pads. That's holding in the NFL. He's going to have to be broken down and rebuilt by Callahan in order to even be serviceable for the Redskins. Tall order. In addition, there are interior lineman that are technically ready to play RIGHT NOW in this draft. I pray Skins draft one, along with a Tackle project with upside, and jettison Flowers before the season starts.
  11. The Redskins need play makers... explosive play makers. Think slants that go to the house! Think breaking tackles and shaking defenders. They don't need receivers who can't separate, are slow footed, and only move the chains. Harris is a nice story but let's be realistic here. He's a possession receiver and virtually every NFL team has a couple on their practice squad.
  12. I happen to think part of the issues with the Redskins team under performing each year is because they believe the fawning press articles from the Washington press. Every year articles are written about how good the Redskins roster appears to be and how the sky's the limit. In reality, the team lacks talent and is often out coached by opposing teams. As soon as players realize, and this generally happens half way though the year, that the team doesn't compare to top tier teams in terms of talent and top coached teams curb stomp them, they give up and crash and burn.

    Draft Bradbury in the 2nd / 3rd and shift Chase to Left guard. OL problems solved. Find young quality backup Swing Tackle to team with Christian and one or the other takes over for Trent Williams next year. Williams is breaking down and shouldn't get another contract from the Redskins.

    The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    I've been saying for 3 years Redskins should get out of the Richmond VA Training Camp deal. It's a circus, there are tons of distractions, and the bad press for financially strapping the city does no one any good. I think the Skins should go to the Warm Springs VA & Greenbrier Hotel, which is out of the way and focus on chemistry and team building. Hell, I'd be open to going back to Carlisle or Frostburg at this point. Anything to get out of the limelight and focus on football fundamentals.
  15. Snyder fires Allen, Gruden, rest of coaching staff, strength training staff, nutritional staff, save Smith & Shaeffer. Doug Williams is given ceremonial Team President role (Face of Franchise) with no input on football operations. Smith installed as GM with sole & full control of ALL football operations. Shaeffer under Smith and in charge of Salary Cap. Smith / Snyder determine franchise plan to return Redskins to competitive, then Super Bowl contender. Plan is mapped out and approved by both. Plan must include Alex Smith cap hit and ways to minimize constraints as well as identifying core Redskins to keep and veterans to trade or release for cap relief. Snyder first consults experts that advise how to restructure training facility & nutritional program. State of the Art program established Smith hires Head Coach, scout staff, strength training staff, nutrition staff. Head Coach hires own staff and implements culture improvements. Block heads on team identified and jettisoned. Snyder voids agreement with Richmond VA for Training Camp and moves camp to smaller & more rural college location. Carlisle, Frostburg, Warm Springs VA to name a few. Focus shifts from spectacle of Training Camp and Marketing to Team Building in isolation with minimum distractions. New coach is given time to evaluate McCoy, Johnson, or Sanchez and all 2019 QB prospects. Alex Smith most assuredly will not play 2019 and most likely never again. However, he is treated with upmost respect and his contract honored with no questions asked. This will go along way towards building mutual respect between team and it's players. New coach chooses QB path and implements plan to improve QB play within his offensive scheme. Draft BPA, rookie QB if plan dictates, and / or team needs as warranted by team draft board. Snyder gives new coach / GM 3 years minimum to implement plan with no interference. Year 4 of new GM / Coaching Staff - Snyder measures progress, plan revaluations, goals / results identified for Year 4 & 5. Post Year 5 if goals not met - Snyder determines if new direction needed or new plan created.
