  1. Yep - no doubt WR is dramatically improved since last season, but it is by no means a finished product - could use a little help. RB is a question more for many reasons - could be halfway decent or bad - we'll see. A lot of this doesn't matter if the QB play is subpar. I am hopeful that Haskins will be much improved, but nobody really knows how that will unfold. Similar questions exist on the OL & TE needs help (which they could find to a degree via the draft & free agency). All in all certainly no guarantee of a division title or anything close (Redskins fans should no
  2. Hmmm - you do realize that the guy who just won the SB falls into that category - rt? This also pretty much applied to Pete Carroll when he won the SB. Belichick was a tad bit younger when he won his 1st SB but he pretty much also fits the bill. I just love how you label these type of guys retreads when they are some of the best coaches in the NFL. IMO a retread would be more like a Norv Turner & some others who kept getting head coaching jobs & never truly found success. I think Rivera is closer to the 1st type of coach then in the Turner mold.
  3. Great interview with Smith from ESPN. He just appears to be grateful at this time & taking everything day by day. When he was asked whether he would play again he just said that he was not sure. I truly admire him & want to see him do well in whatever he does, but I just don't see it as being an NFL QB at this time. That might be in his best interest anyhow & he appears to have a very bright future quite possibly in an NFL front office - either with the Skins or some other team.
  4. Hmm - you are one of the few people that appears to be down on the Rivera signing (& that includes fans, fans of other teams, other players,, other coaches & media). I would not label Rivera as simply a retread - he only coached one team & had a fair amt of success. Also - given the makeup of this team - I believe that he is just the type of coach that is needed at this time. IMO a young, inexperienced coach would just be another puppet & also not really prepared to run an organization (& until we see otherwise I am good with this whole coach centric philosophy - certai
  5. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1992_NFL_Draft LOL - you aren't kidding! You would have to be a major NFL trivia buff to even recognize a fraction of the names of players in the 1992 draft. Just terrible. Most of the players in the top part of the 1st rd bounced around the NFL & had very uninspiring careers. Heck 5 of the top 12 players in the 1st rd played for the Redskins at some pt in their careers. The Redskins draft that year was awful. Most of us know about Desmond Howard (who won a SB MVP for GB but didn't do much for Skins), but the other picks mainly consisted of g
  6. Yep & no doubt he didn't refer to them as the "Redskins" but something like the "Washington Football Team". What a poser.
  7. 1. Yes but again this is TBD. He needs to improve & mature but I certainly believe he is capable of this role. I am not stating that this will happen & again he is TBD - he could be a very good QB for years to come or a bust. We will get a good read on this early next season. 2. Personally - no - not IMO. I am trying to be real here & not be totally hypothetical. They are getting Burrow - he will be drafted by the Bengals. That only really leaves Tua as someone they would consider. He is huge risk/reward guy. I just believe that people overvalue QB way to much &a
  8. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Washington_Redskins_draft_history Disagree somewhat about the Redskins draft picks especially for the last 3 drafts. I believe that the Redskins have had pretty decent drafts lately & also you can't truly judge a draft until at least 3 years after the picks are made (some players take longer to develop and/or could be affected by poor coaching). You cited a handful of cases & I would dispute your claim about Scherff - he has been quoted by several sources as stating that he wants to remain on the Skins - a lot of this is posturing for a bette
  9. Ok - 1st of all - lol - not sure why you are addressing me by that name. Again - that screenname is based on my last name - I really need to change it. Anyhow - if I am reading your reply correctly - the greatest value on this team is on DL (beyond punter) & I don't believe that it is close. Most other areas involve question marks and/or a real need for improvement. Now this can be viewed somewhat differently with the switch to the 4-3. There isn't a huge need for an edge rusher. However there is a need for improvement in that area given Kerrigan's age & big question m
  10. If they draft Tua then I will start to think that either they let Bruce Allen back into Redskins Park or Snyder is again calling the shots. Sorry - no way in the world this will or should happen. This is rolling the dice for a position that they quite possibility don't even need. Tua is a question mark at this time & even if he is completely healthy he plays a style that is very susceptible to injury (unless he learns to adjust his style - which I hope he does for his sake). You presented this option as a question mark - that alone should tell you that they should not draft him especia
  11. I am in no way suggesting that you were down on Chase Young. My pt is that having a player who will demand a huge contract is a good problem to have for the Redskins. Again - this rarely happens for Skins 1st rd picks & is a sign that they have drafted poorly in the past & also ran the team very poorly. Keep in mind that Young's contract won't need to be extended for another 5 yrs (could be sooner if he holds out down the road). At some pt a championship team has to consist of elite players (whether drafted highly or a sleeper who is drafted later). This is often a QB bu
  12. That would be awesome! This is the type of problem that the Redskins can only dream of having in the future. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Washington_Redskins_first-round_draft_picks Take a look at the Redskins 1st rd draft picks over the past 40 years. Hardly any of them were around for a 2nd contract. Of their 1st rd picks in the relatively recent past I can only recall Kerrigan & Williams signing these type of long term extensions (& hopefully Scherff this offseason if he re-signs). Otherwise it has been a combination of traded picks, busts &
  13. Good pt. IMO this was a huge problem w/ P. Smith when he was on the Skins. He was not disciplined enough to stay in his lane & stick to his assignment. You could blame a lot of this on coaching. I cannot imagine that Del Rio will allow any player to do this for an extended period of time. Can't wait to see his defense on the field.
  14. To be specific that only happened in that stupid movie Draft Day w/ Kevin Costner. That was one of the lazier attempts at making a football related movie. Keep dreaming. Why can't Redskins fans simply want the team to do things the conventional way & stop dreaming up all of these pie-in-the-sky scenarios. BTW - don't be surprised if things actually happen differently & Tua is drafted a lot later in the 1st rd. We have seen this play out many times in the past w/ sure thing QBs projected to go in the 1st few picks.
  15. When presented like this I don't really have an issue with this approach. The Skins screwed up w/ Cousins since they tagged him freaking twice & then dumped him - if they didn't like him they should have cut ties after the 1st tag. Anyhow - I don't have an issue with moving on from a mediocre QB who hasn't accomplished much like a Stafford. However I would do whatever it takes to keep the next Brady, Brees or Manning & that would include someone like Mahommes (sure they may not perform ideally long term but that is a risk worth taking IMO). Everyone appears to be focused
