  1. the best April Fools day joke was when they had everyone call the Giants home office. I can't remember anything about the April Fools day joke but it was really good and confused the hell out of the Giants.

    Really like Cesar Ruiz.. The guy who does these is a Ravens fan, but I'd consider him in the 2nd round for the Skins.

    The Philosophy Thread: HC First, GM/FO First, or does it matter?

    The most important thing to me, whether the HC hires the GM or the GM hires the HC is that it works as a partnership.

    The Coaching Staff thread: Now complete OP edited 1/15/20

    Mr. Vanilla is the new DC of the Dallas Cowboys MIKE NOLANDL, NEW ORLEANS SAINTS NFL Network's Jane Slater reports Saints LB coach Mike Nolan is expected to join the Cowboys. Specifically, Slater's source said, "That’s what I’ve heard in the building ... Mike came by and said goodbye. I’d say it’s pretty certain." Ian Rapoport and Tom Pelissero added that the Cowboys are "zeroing in on" Nolan. He's spent the past three seasons coaching the Saints linebackers. Previously Nolan held defensive coordinator positions with the Falcons, Dolphins, Broncos, Ravens, Redskins, Jets, and Giants dating back to 1993. Nolan also served as the 49ers' head coach from 2005-2008, during which time new Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy was his offensive coordinator. The Cowboys boasted the league's 11th-ranked scoring defense in 2019.
  9. he may not hire and fire quickly, but he has kept GM's a long time because of the friendship that he has had with them and he meddles way too much. Haskins was his choice, not Jay Grudens or the front office RG3 was his choice not the coaching staff McNabb was his choice not the coaching staff I could go on and on...

    Serious Question: Do you regret letting Cousins go?

    His contract is so bad. Alex Smith's cap hit next season is 21.4m, but his dead cap is 32.2m dollars. If we cut him, he will cost us 11m. That being said I do remember them having a decent record when Alex Smith went down with an injury. Many thought we were going to win the division before he went down, but now that he hasn't played football for 1 1/2 years, how good can he be.

    Lorenzo Alexander Retires

    Eagles owner and the Maras colluded. Well I wish they took away our 1st round pick instead which would have cancelled out the RG3 trade.

    Jim Caldwell had taken time off for health reasons, but wants to get back in the game. Could very well only want to be a head coach though.

    4-3 Starting Lineup

    That is correct, while in Seattle Earl Thomas was purely a FS, but in Baltimore he does both because of all the coverages Don Martindale has in that defense.

    4-3 Starting Lineup

    nowadays you can't really say your best pass rusher needs to be up against the LT. This used to be the case, but nowadays the best pass rusher can be lined up on either side of the line. I hate when teams tend stick with 4-3 or 3-4, which in the 3-4 is rarely the case anymore. With all the passing, teams are in nickel most of the time and in base defense less than 20% of the time, in many cases. The base defense for many 3-4, not all 3-4 teams, would be used when the opposing offense lines up an extra lineman. I'd rather have a hybrid scheme. It's also nice to have interchangeable safeties for more disguised blitzes. Jack Del Rio has an excellent reputation and both times brought horrible defenses to top two defenses so I believe he should be able to do that in DC as well, especially if we draft Chase Young.

    Welcome To The Redskins: Ron Rivera, Head Coach

    This is one of the best hiring and firings in the Dan Snyder era. Rivera is a two time Coach of the Year who coached in a difficult division and his players fought for him. He is a defensive mind that will immediately bring leadership to this team. Happy New Year, everyone! and that's an improvement

    Correcting the fan interest problem

    always nice to hear from you and some great ideas.
  17. definitely rumors he could be coming back since Bruce Allen is out. That was his big reason for wanting out.
  18. my guess is they interviewed Marvin Lewis

    2020 Comprehensive Draft Thread

    I don't think this would be one of the reasons. I absolutely believe the rookie pay scale will change and I know one sticking point is the 5th year option. Not sure if owners will be willing to get rid of that, but I could see that being a higher dollar amount as well as franchise tag being a higher cost to the team. Again players don't want any version of the franchise tag or 5th year option. If Chase is in the draft, I see them going that route, but if he isn't, they may want an OBJ replacemtn in Jeudy or as you mentioned an OT.

    pretty ridiculous considering there will always be a bad team at 2 and 3. Him choosing to stay in school could make it more difficult to land Jeudy, if that's who the Skins wanted. I think they need to trade down and pick up a bunch of good picks. We need more than just one great player.

    it's true the Pats don't view it as imperative, but a big part of that is Brady's release. They had major issues this season at LT and even when Wynn came he was playing LT, when they would prefer to play him at guard.

    2020 Comprehensive Draft Thread

    It is very true that many teams have their best lineman at other positions besides LT. Last year, I'm not sure I would say Marcus Cannon was their best tackle as Trent Brown was one of the best LTs. No question that Marshall Yanda was the best lineman on the roster in 2012 and for most seasons, but this season Ronnie Stanley is just as good and that isn't because Yanda isn't playing as well. He is still an All Pro RG.

    yep, pretty damn good. With good coaching it can obviously be done, especially with lineman. The only position you need a top pick is Left Tackle and even that isn't always the case. it is correct, although he does go after both on occasion. Many of the top edge do attack the right tackle, but even in that case, in most cases it isn't the blind side of the QB. Again, I will emphasize that you don't need a 1st round right tackle. Just get a great blocking TE and a good Right Tackle. Even last year when James Hurst, who is an awful tackle, was starting prior, the Ravens were able to stymie him due to having Nick Boyle helping Hurst out.
