    How do you define "Team Culture"?

    Copied/pasted from another thread...more appropriate here imo... Culture is what prevents losing streaks. It’s what says “we just lost to the worst team in the league, but it’s ok cuz we’re still gonna whoop some ass”. We don’t have that. We lose and it snowballs. Drafting fixes that. We haven’t been drafting long enough. We’re 2 good drafts away from having enough depth to be competitive annually. FAs are cool and all but they augment and put your team over the top. We’re suffering from years of selling picks for FAs. Gonna take time to rebuild the right way. My fear...THIS is the window. We have good 26> talent but a lame duck coach and/front office. We can not swing and miss with the coaching change this time or we’ll find ourselves here again in 5 years. Whoever it is dan brings in...if we want perpetual competitive seasons with realistic playoff expectations...that person HAS to be allowed to develop with our youth movement and hopefully whatever young talent we continue to draft

    Next Coach?

    Kevin Wilson...just a thought
  6. Quinn looks terrified of contact...with AND without the ball. He totally alligator armed the ball across the middle last night and he’s a guarantee to fall down or run about of bounds before taking a hit. Gotta get YAC from your wrs...esp the slot. Me thinks he’s a little gun shy and it’s affecting his game
  7. Apparently, Haskins is only getting scout team reps in practice. Ummmmmmmm...that makes zero sense. Wow

    Starting QB 2019???

    Let’s take stidham and give him the keys soon as he’s ready or colt gets injured. Then...we ride with stidham until 2022...at which point we have either found our qb, or are perhaps in position to take TLawrence.

    An Offseason Plan

    If we want to build a CONSISTENT winner here again, we must draft, draft and draft some more. We have started doing just that the past few seasons...not just hitting on top picks but finding later picks that develop and contribute MEANINGFUL minutes. we did not draft a lot over the past decade or so and even when we did, we didn’t hit on much. Failed bandaid FA experiments have tied up money. Ike the OP says...let’s take our meds. I dont care care if tony banks is our QB next year. We use 2019 to continue the churn, hope we continue to hit on multiple picks and continue to develop whatever id Jay is working. 2020...we get our qb. Time to take the meds we’ve been avoiding for years. Draft Draft Draft...then Draft some more. If we’re not doing this, we’re wrong...imo
  12. My expert trend analysis predicts the next 20 will be an awesome ride...really it was my magic 8ball, but trend analysis makes me sound smarter... just like Ike any other organization, we’re a qb away from excitement. It can happen overnight... heres to finding the next leader of our franchise and to 20 years of good times...

    I’m for it...Trevor Lawrence 2020!
  14. Winning produces full stadiums. We haven’t won consistently in forever so our stadiums are typically full of errbody else’s fans since the dmv is full of transients. Ofcourse, through it all, the diehards remain. They get out cheered during losses by opposing fans and boo the team during grind it out times. Skins havent been the same since we sold our souls to move out of dc. Alienated the fan base and provided an inferior product...every stinking season since. The entire franchise needs consistency ....fans included

    Safety Clinton Dix to the skins

    I love this move!!! For a 4th?...it’s a steal! Nicholson is now our 3d safety or we can slide haha in the Harvey-Clemons role. This is an awesome acquisition.

    In defense of Martyball

    We’re 5-2 and you can tell Jay Gruden ain’t happy. He wants to throw the ball better so bad he can’t stand it lol. We’re not going back to Marty ball by any means. He’s gonna get the passing game goin. Love how we’ve built the team around the defense though. I wouldn’t be mad if we got another Bama lineman next draft lol. been preaching to any fan that’ll hear it...you pressure any qb in his face early and often, you win. We can finally do that. Pressure without a blitz is a luxury we haven’t had since Mann, Manley and butz. That’s a long time jay Gruden isn’t going to rest on the laurels of ap. We know ap can carry us. That is important. It’s allowed us to win in spite of injuries to key players on offense...which has had an impact on the sync Alex Smith has with the offense now. The stove is warming up folks. ?

    Is this the best Defensive Front we've had in years?

    Not since the days of Mann, Manley and Butz have we had a defensive line capable of dictating the flow of a game. We now have that. If you pressure a QB in his face early and often without blitzing...AND...you consistently stop the run...your team will win a lot of football games. We now have that. ...we just turning on the stove folks...
