    Poll: How are you choosing to be a Redskins fan right now?

    What is it when you are 100% convinced that if we attempt to tank this year, we either will not have a top pick even if we go 2-14, will fail in the attempt or the QBs everybody seems to be hot about turn out to be fools gold (at least the one we get). I also think we may end up as the team that missed the playoffs with the most wins ever. We could also end up with another excuse filled mediocre season.

    Take the full cap hit for Smith in 2019

    Watching the playoffs has convinced me that besides the obvious QB issue, this team has a playoff roster (though not one that'll likely go deep). Problem ain't the roster but the guys not on the field (coaches and FO though not in terms of roster creation). Of course, because of the Smith issue, we may not be able to fix the QB issue in a reasonable time. Further, the big issue seems to be the FO and we are not doing a thing there.

    The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    The thing to remember is with just 4-5 "lucky" plays the Giants would have won the division this year and just two "unlucky" ones would have the first pick in the coming draft. If just couple of plays had "gone our way" we'd have won the division. That is part of why it is so hard to tank in the NFL!

    The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    Sadly, we are too dysfunctional to do that bad unless the potential draft class is bad.

    The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    It is the league's passive aggressive way to get the name changed without looking like anyone caved. Team moves to a new city and has to take a new name. At best we get an expansion team (or a current team that is looking for a new home). Jaguars or Bucs are pretty generic so team wouldn't need to be renamed for instance. New team could also be called the Warriors and everybody is happy,

    2019 Comprehensive Draft Thread

    Hire Hue Jackson, trade everyone we can (only guys on the defensive line are exceptions) for 2020 picks, try to max comp picks for 2020 and trade as many 2019 picks for 2020 picks as we can get. At least April of 2020 will be fun.

    Switching to a 4-3 in 2019

    Same argument every year. People are still basically on the same sides. This is the first year, however, since we switched that a "go 4-3" argument makes no sense. Rarely, have we played a straight 3-4 for the majority of snaps. This is the first season we have come close to having a 3 down NT. Both Foster and Hamilton look and play more like 3-4 inside backers.

    2019 home/away schedule

    Too early but still conservative 8-8 (9-7 would be a playoff record so we go into the last game, where we should win in a walk, at 8-7).
  10. The only way a scenario like yours happens is if Allen is gone, Problem with rebuilding is that we HAVE been rebuilding in earnest since Norv Gruden 1.0 was fired.
  11. My fear is that we demolish the Eagles and Minnesota loses. Minnesota is backing into the playoffs and we are actually improved over last year in spite of catastrophic injuries (at least that's the story the front office can spin). The move we really need to make, fire Bruce Allen (which also probably leads to firing Gruden and Manusky), is not made. We may fire Gruden and Manusky and bring in Norv Gruden 3.0.

    What do YOU want to happen?

    I think your wrong about next season being bad. We will probably have a 7-9 win year that'll not be enough to get rid of the underlying rot. I mean, I won't be surprised if we somehow win Sunday and end up being mediocre until the current young core ages out while the rot is not removed. By the way, if there really is a good QB prospect in 2020, you know we'll do just good enough to not have the pick.

    Marketing Geniuses

    What makes it worse is that this seems to indicate that Dan believes the primary driver behind the revenue slide is quality of the peripherals. RFK was one of the worst venues in the NFL but the primary reason game-day experience was high quality is that we won. Over most of the years of Fed-Ex, watching the Redskins get their asses handed to them is more likely than watching the Redskins do the ass-kicking. Another major source is the fans of your rival teams buying your teams stuff to burn in effigy, we suck so hard that our rival fans feel sorry for us.

    Marketing Geniuses

    As far as Swearinger, maybe we now know the real reason he has been on 5 teams in 7 years. In the NFL, you can be a real dick as long as you don't lie to your boss or question his decisions.

    The Season WILL Begin Anew Next August

    I'll agree and that is the one reason I think we may be attractive to a real football front office. If I was considering the Skins as my destination as the new HC or GM-type, I wouldn't be so worried about what's below as about what's above.
