    The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    Wouldn’t surprise me if Schaffer takes a meeting elsewhere, only to have it at least result in a pay raise here. I say because last year I believe that I was hearing that he wasn’t interested in a GM//President role. Now, if y’all remember ol Jim Zorn then you’ll know why you don’t want Gruden gone. Zorn wasn’t able to hire his own staff. He inherited coaches that were still under contract. If Jay gets let go, the next guy in here will be in herating every coach still under contract.
  2. You're not alone. Mobile still seems to have the least problems. I've also had Invision monitoring this thread for everyone's feedback. Right now they're they're still looking into it but having trouble reliably replicating the Chrome issues, but can replicate the issue at times. Of course, anyone looking for ES coverage from the Jags game, good luck with that as we have an issue creating blog entries & uploading photos.
  3. From Invision: I've located the source of the issue, 248 of your members have a signature that has an image in it from what I suspect is one of your old domains. For example: http://www. However, it looks like the domain expired and was re-registered by someone on September 23rd and is now redirecting to a location that Google has flagged as being malicious. What that causes to happen is that any time a member with this image replies to a post, it'll cause the viewers browser to attempt to load the image, resulting in the malware warning. So, we’re going to do a mass update the afflicted signatures.

  6. Last time I was here they had the upper deck tarped off & FedEx was still selling out....
  7. Fourth string QB vs a second string QB. Best thing about this match up is you guys won’t have to listen to Buck/Aikman or Nance/Romo call it on the tv. Thats about as as positive as I can be about this right now.

For Immediate Release December 15, 2018 REDSKINS MAKE ROSTER MOVES LOUDOUN COUNTY, Va. – The Washington Redskins announced today that they have made the following roster moves: The Redskins signed the following player to their active roster: LS Andrew East TE Matt Flanagan DB Joshua Holsey The Redskins placed the following player on the Reserve/Injured list: LS Nick Sundberg The Redskins waived the following player from the active roster: RB Kapri Bibbs DE Marcus Smith
  9. December 14, 2018 Head Coach Jay Gruden On injuries: "Alright, out will be [Ryan] Anderson, hamstring; [Tony] Bergstrom, knee/ankle; [Colt] McCoy, fibula and [Jordan] Reed, ankle/foot. Questionable will be Josh Doctson, concussion; [Matt] Ioannidis, shin; [Ty] Nsekhe, knee; [Morgan] Moses, ankle; Nick Sundberg, lower back; Chris Thompson, illness and Montae Nicholson, illness." On where WR Josh Doctson stands in the concussion protocol: "Yeah, that's up to the independent doctors and the doctors, but he did some work today. He's on the upside." On if Doctson needs an additional level of clearance: "I think it’s he's practicing and tolerating it the way it is and then we'll evaluate him tonight and tomorrow morning. If everything is good then he's good." On if he said LS Nick Sundberg: "I did say Nick Sundberg." On what the plan would be to replace Sundberg: "We would have to find another long snapper. We've got a couple flying in today or one for sure. He's going to work out here at two o'clock. But he's got a lower back issue. He's had that issue for a little bit of time and I think it’s just something we've got to get an MRI and get checked out. Hopefully everything is OK. If not, we'll get somebody else in here." On if the injury happened in practice or if it was a deterioration: "Yeah, yeah. I don’t know if it was deterioration. It was just sore and he had some issues back there." On who would replace Doctson if he was out: "Yeah, we'll fill it with [Michael] Floyd, [Maurice] Harris and [Jamison] Crowder and Jehu Chesson." On who would be the new starter at guard: "Probably Luke [Bowanko] right now is getting the nod right now." On if the team has decided which tight end to bring up if any: "We'll make that decision this afternoon at four. [Matt] Flanagan has had a good week, J.P. [Holtz], they both offer something different and both have done a great job. We'll make that determination today, hopefully." On if the Sundberg injury complicates the roster decisions: "There's a lot of complicated things we're trying to get cleared up. We have some other guys we are trying to work through to get them up on the roster and some guys that are out a couple of weeks, one week, two weeks, three weeks. We just have to make a decision there and open up a couple roster spots, one, maybe two." On if he ever thought he would be in this roster shuffling and injury situation again: "Yeah, I mean no, but it's part of the job. You have to handle injuries and situations and it's what I signed up for. Unfortunately, we've had our share but it's something that has to be done." On the amount of false starts on offense: "Both, both really. Lack of concentration number one; everybody has got to be on the same page. Even when you are on the road, you should never have a false start on the road because you've got to watch the ball anyway pretty much. But at home when you have a couple, that's a lack of concentration. A couple of them they called on Morgan [Moses] that he just timed the count up and he didn’t think he was offside. But yeah, the snap count also. Sometimes they drag it out a little bit. Everybody is so used to the rhythm – white-80, white-80, set hut. Then sometimes it's white-80, white-eighteee, set hut, you know? We're getting that cleared up and making sure everybody is rhythmic and handle the change in snap counts when we need it." On T Morgan Moses leading the league in total penalties: "Yeah, a couple hands to the face, a couple false starts, a couple holdings. He's such a big guy, sometimes he gets the hands up there in the face every now and then and he's had a couple false starts. Like I said, he's tried to time them and jumped. But the holding calls that we've had, three or four of them that were said weren't holding calls the day after and some of them are legit. A lot of times if he gets beat, he'd rather have a holding call than get the quarterback hit too. I think Morgan's really done a good job this year as far as fighting through. He's played with some tough injuries now with his ankles and feet and all that stuff. He's done a great job fighting through and being there for us. Unfortunately, he's had a couple penalties." On if QB Josh Johnson's enthusiasm could spark the team: "Yeah, that's one thing I mentioned the other day. He's got great confidence and plays with great energy and that hopefully will rub off. That’s the way you should play this game, that’s the way everybody should play this game. It’s a game. You've got to play with great confidence and great energy to have a chance and have some fun and Josh will do that. Very confident and the one thing I also know about him is if he has one bad play, that won't affect his next play. He'll just keep grinding and keep working and keep slinging it. He'll bring an energy to the team. Hopefully he has some production." On if CB Josh Norman got a day off: "No he played, he practiced. He was probably just cold [Laughter]."

  12. December 13, 2018 Head Coach Jay Gruden On injuries: "Did not participate [Ryan] Anderson, hamstring; [Tony] Bergstrom, ankle/knee; [Josh] Doctson, in concussion protocol; [Colt] McCoy, fibula; [Jordan] Reed, ankle/foot. Limited [Matt] Ioannidis, shin; [Ty] Nsekhe, knee; [Shaun] Dion Hamilton, shoulder; [Adrian] Peterson, shoulder and [Morgan] Moses, ankle and blisters." On decisions to place some players on injured reserve: "We have roster decisions to make, yes, possibly. We're still going through the process on who we want to play and possibly dress. We've got another day or so to figure all of that out." On if QB Colt McCoy and TE Jordan Reed are possible injured reserve candidates: "We have been talking about them. We feel pretty good that Jordan is coming along and Colt, we're optimistic. We've just got to get with the trainers and do what's best for those guys, number one and then obviously for the team." On the latest on McCoy: "Well, he's just healing right now, so we've got to wait. It will be a little while before he can get out of the boot and then once he gets out of the boot, he'll start the process of working out and getting better." On QB Josh Johnson and new plays based on his skill set: "When you have a new quarterback brand new, you're going to disrupt it a little bit, so have to try and figure out things that he can do to try and move the chains a little bit. Jacksonville has a very veteran style defense, very good defensive coordinator, great skill in the secondary with the players they have in Jalen [Ramsey] and obviously Tashaun Gipson is a great safety. It’s a very good defense. We have to figure out how to attack them and then make him as comfortable as possible [and] also try to install some things that might make him more effective that fit his skill set." On who will start at guard this week: "We're working through a couple of guys. We're trying to get Ty [Nsekhe] in there still and obviously we're still looking at a few others." On how facing CB Jalen Ramsey challenges a quarterback and if he tells them to avoid specific players: "And throw it to A.J. Bouye? He's pretty good too [Laughter]. So yeah, that’s what makes their defense very effective, they have two great corners. Like I said, Gipson can come out of the middle and cover a tight end very effectively and their linebackers and very fast and can handle the backs. When they do play man-to-man, they are pretty effective and they have an unbelievable pass rush, a really good pass rush. They play some zones. We have to attack their zones. We've have to protect the quarterback. But most importantly, we have to stay out of third and long and we've got to run the ball effectively somehow." On how much they can incorporate Johnson's legs: "It doesn’t require much change. I think the terminology will be easy for us. I think the big thing is when he drops back to pass, our receivers have to adjust to possible movement in the pocket. That means breaking off routes. You might run a basic cross and then it might turn into a corner route or it might turn into a comeback, but they have to make sure they stay alive when he scrambles. He's very effective in the pocket moving around." On the difference in Johnson in the pocket versus McCoy or QB Alex Smith: "He can probably do it more often, especially this week with the pass rush that Jacksonville has. There will probably be a lot of movement around, but we'll see. We have some different type plays, getting him outside the pocket possibly, but we'll see. I think he's just trying to get in the flow of our terminology, our system, the plays that we like that our good for what Jacksonville does and then also trying to implement some things he can do well." On LB Shaun Dion Hamilton's shoulder injury: "He practiced today, he's sore though. He was limited. He was off and on there, but he said it's pretty sore." On if he sees Hamilton starting over LB Zach Brown this week: "We'll see. We haven’t made that decision yet, but we're just making sure we get the defenses taught that we're going to use in this game plan. They both can play there's no doubt about it." On what he made of Brown saying the writing was on the wall: "Nobody wrote anything on the wall really. He hasn’t talked to me yet, so I don’t know what he's saying. Like I said, I don't read anything. If anybody has a problem, they can come see me." On the offensive holding penalties: "Yeah we try. We teach the fundamentals. We watch the referee tapes every week. We watch the penalties that were called on us and we talk about them, the techniques that we use. We don’t ever teach holding contrary to belief. But there are times in the backside where you sometimes try to pull yourself through and that can be viewed as holding. Some teams get called for it, some teams don’t. There's a lot of those gray areas that we seem to be getting called for a little bit more than others, but it's something we're trying to work through and teach. When you have different guys playing and you're running the same teams with different people and different combinations, sometimes it gets a little difficult." On RB Chris Thompson: "Well I think the big thing is staying on the field. I think it's very, very important having drives of seven, eight, nine plays somehow where we can utilize both Adrian [Peterson] and Chris and Byron [Marshall] or Kapri [Bibbs] or Samaje [Perine]—whoever else is up. When you're three and out and you're third down and 18, let's throw a screen pass to Chris and hopefully we'll break it. We have to stay in the positive down and distance, move the chains, have some effective drives. Chris's strength when we're in third down four, five, six, we expect some man to man, we get some matchups or zone coverages where he can attack a zone coverage. Third and 18, I mean you guys could probably play defense and get a stop. More difficult. Like is said, the key is to get us in some good drives so they both can play and be effective." On T Ty Nsekhe moving to guard: "He did good. I don’t think people really realize that it's really totally different going form tackle to guard. When you're playing left tackle/right tackle and then you go to guard, it's a different stance, it's a different set, it's a different eye progression, it's different combination blocks in the running game, it's different pass sets. It's different, a lot different. He's been very good to us in his role as far as backup tackle. When he's had to play, he's been very good at both right side and left side. Then you ask him to move to guard, you know, the words and the plays are the same but they're different for a guard." On if he has seen the response he wanted from the team following Sunday's game: "Yeah, it was tough. I think you have to learn from losses like that and you have to do everything you can not to let that happen again. That's what we're trying to do, but you also have to forget about it as fast as you can and move forward and understand that we're in December, we're half a game out of the playoff hunt. That's the fact. If you start thinking about 'oh we've lost this game and that game' and 'we didn’t stop this play' and 'we couldn’t throw this pass', then you have no chance. We have to be confident moving forward. We have to have good practices. We have to be focused in meetings. Coaches have to have a good plan and we have to go get a victory against a team that was a game away from the Super Bowl last year." Defensive Coordinator Greg Manusky On what he is trying to clean up from the defense's performance against the New York Giants: "Yeah, the run fits. I think the biggest thing, very good back [New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley]. We knew that going into the game. We had to stop the run. We didn’t get it done in certain situations. The biggest thing for us is trying to get those big backs down and sometimes the run fits, we didn’t hit him the way we wanted to and it wasn’t a good first half." On missed tackles and a lack of consistency when swarming to the ball: "I think just overall consistency of swarming to the ball is major in the National Football League. We didn’t get it done. We have to do a better job in a coaching aspect and same thing on the field. We have to make sure we get those big players down. Playing a running back like that this week, a good running back, big body guy that can hit it right downhill and we got to make sure that we tackle him in space, tackle him in the box and just hone him into that box area." On the difference in defensive play from the beginning of the season to now: "I wish I could put my finger on it across the board. I think we got to keep on practicing, keep on preaching the tackling, the angles to the ball and swarming to the ball. I think those things eventually we have to make sure we take hold of in these next three weeks that we’re playing because you never know what’s going to happen." On S D.J. Swearinger Sr. and LB Mason Foster expressing their frustrations: "Well, I think it’s important to talk to those guys and see what their feelings are across the board. We want to do the best that we can, but as coaches, we’re having our game plan and sometimes we’ll get some adjustments. If those adjustments need to be made, we’ll make some adjustments at times based upon not so much on what they say but sometimes they bring light to certain things that we as coaches sometimes don’t see. Sometimes we’ll implement some of the stuff that they do say into the game plan. Not so much from a call perspective, but sometimes from the leverage kind of stuff." On LB Shaun Dion Hamilton’s performance vs the Giants: "I think he played okay, you know, first game in the National Football League in the regular season. Can he play better? I think yeah. All of us can and we have to make sure we do it this week. We got an opponent that I think we have to get after and swarm to the ball." On how DL Daron Payne and DL Jonathan Allen are holding up: "I think playing at Alabama in the years that they played, they played a decent amount of games. I think overall it’s a grind every time that you play in the National Football League from start to finish. You’ve always got nicks and bruises and things here and there. But for the most part they’ve been playing pretty good." On keeping players fresh this late into the season: "Yeah, I think that’s very important. But from a practice standpoint, you got only so many reps. I think with the walk-throughs and stuff you try to get that and get the right fits Then during practice you don’t have as many plays as you normally did in the beginning of the season or during training camp. You try to focus on that and try to talk about that. It’s very important." On how RB Leonard Fournette compares to other running backs the team has faced this year: "A big cat that can really see the field, you know what I’m saying? A good downhill runner that can strike. He has that explosive speed to get around the edge. From last year to this year, he’s still a good running back. I know he was out for a little bit of time, but I’m just saying from our standpoint, I think he’s a good running back."
  13. It was a steakum. A rather unpressive Streakum at that. I’ve made better at home.
