  1. It is unfortunate that this is likely true. Him being on essentially some of the worse NFL teams in the last 10 years does not help either. If he does explode this year, I still see him taking a discounted salary to remain and retire with the team. Similar to Darrell Green who kept serving as a role player in his last few seasons.
  2. Taking draft picks for on field transgressions (bounty, spy) makes sense. Taking them for front office transgressions doesn't make sense. The players aren't the named persons here. That being said, fining Snyder even a couple million is nothing to him. Forcing him to hire proper HR and some female execs makes sense, but still doesn't punish Snyder. The only thing I can think of is that it has to punish him financially on a large scale. In college, they will usually cancel bowl eligibility. With how putrid our team is, that doesn't really matter. Maybe taking all gameday prof
  3. sad to hear, RIP. I remember his quote when Joe Gibbs decided to return. Something about being so excited he packed a couple pairs of underwear and hopping on a flight.
  4. I'm late myself on this. People are actively trying to go after Thomas Jefferson already. If Jefferson goes, so does George Washington and any other slave owner of the founding fathers group. I don't think they will be held to a different standard to those who want change and are protesting. Some will point out that the Confederates were traitors to the US, which is true. However, could it be argued that the founding fathers were traitors to England who established the colonies? I'm not sure how people will draw the line. Personally, the confederate statues should go down and
  5. Presumably if we win a super bowl, it would be because the team is better run. This would mean Snyder is not as involved/meddlesome compared to decades past. It seems so far he is allowing others to run the team. We have heard this trope before so who knows how accurate it is. If we win a super bowl in the next few years based on this current trajectory (which likely won't happen), then I think a lot of people will support Snyder for finally learning from his mistakes. By contrast, if we had won the super bowl in 2012, it would feel like a fluke and likely the team would have imploded soo
  6. While the 17 game season is polarizing, does it reduce the number of tie breakers needed for playoff seeding? Isn't it as likely that there could be multiple 9-8 teams now? Just asking out of curiosity. Also, 3 wild card teams is nice but hopefully it doesn't lead to a 7-10 team getting in.
  7. bring in Anthony Mix for a tryout. He is tall.
  8. Yeah, it seems that the issues with the field have subsided after the 2012 season. Grass is what the NFL was and I would prefer they keep that. However, it may make sense to embrace technology and progress by switching to field turf. Don't they say it's better medically for the players also?
  9. These were my thoughts. Soon after Dallas joined, the Falcons and Buccaneers got teams. Kansas City and Houston were AFL teams I believe but they existed. The merger occurred in 1966. Dallas would have eventually gotten a team eventually. It seems back then anyone with financial backing could set up a team. Not as much as in the 1920s to 40s but still doable. It was a pointless move by Marshall and he nearly lost the song as a result. Marshall's personal views and issues are well documented overall.
  10. You posted what I planned to post. To add, there always seems to be some great prospect every year. Some pan out, some do not. You all mentioned Peppers, Mario Williams, Myles Garrett, Clowney, the Bosas, Von Miller. What about JJ Watt, also good. Further, remember Vernon Gholston? People look at the draft and think of hope and promises compared to actual production. That is fine as I still believe you build through the draft. When you have as many holes as we do, however, you need to see if your good pick can be turned into more picks. If we do land Ron Rivera, we know t
  11. Need to know who the Defensive Coordinator and Head Coach will be first. I would be for it since we are losing Norman and need to figure out longer term plans for Dunbar and Moreau.
  12. I worked for Toys R Us during my senior year of high school and one summer during college. That doesn't make me any more qualified to speak about the economics of the situation but I do want to see the store return. Frankly it seems their lack of innovation is what drove them to bankruptcy. They could not adapt knowing that people prefer Amazon and other online retailers. They should have trended towards experiences in store and increased the benefits of coming into the store v. shopping online in general. The Fair Lakes store had a restaurant and carousel at one point. They are followin
  13. Agreed with the majority here. While I always like a good win against Dallas, what is the point? It will only hurt us for the future in that we have a lower draft pick and possibly allowing Bruce to remain. Allowing Bruce to remain means that possibly talented head coaches go elsewhere. We have needed to explode and rebuild this team for sometime and at the beginning of the year, we had a good chance to with trading Trent. Now we are sitting with a falling 1st rounder and no 2nd round pick. Yes, draft picks are not guaranteed but it still is a valuable part of building a team.
  14. Signage laws are pretty strict in Virginia and possibly Maryland too. I think DC allows it in some parts, I am surprised we haven't seen one there yet.
  15. Tank for Tua. Back in 2014, I thought it made more sense to promote Kyle to head coach instead of Jay Gruden. Both were considered "up and coming coaches" so may as well have kept the one who was already in house.
