  1. The Rook

    The current status of the Redskins o-line.

    Sigh Here's what I said: Some general thoughts: The years of wasted picks on crappy WR's instead of Oline and Dline continues to echo throughout the system. If you don't think failure of first and second round picks don't cascade through the years, we just have different opinions. The selection of Doctson is a great example. The Rook.
  2. Definitely enjoyed Kaczor's comments. The Rook

    The current status of the Redskins o-line.

    I guess it is because I have a deeper/longer feel for the poor drafting of WR's. I'm not squabbling over recent 6th/7th rounders, it is the poor record in general for the wasted "investments". - It's not just Josh Doctson, but Desmond Howard (the number 4 pick of the draft), Michael Westbrook (also the number 4 pick of the draft), Rod Gardner (Mr. 50-50), Taylor Jacobs, Malcolm Kelly and Devin Thomas. These are all 1st and 2nd round "It's a swing and a miss" WR's for this franchise. This type of failure with those high picks reverberate for years. The Rook

    The current status of the Redskins o-line.

    Some general thoughts: The years of wasted picks on crappy WR's instead of Oline and Dline continues to echo throughout the system. The Dline is respectable now (because of the luck of players who fell to them in the draft), but the Oline loaded with questions due to lack of focus on depth. I hear all the pundits refer to the Oline as "very good ... when healthy". Trouble is, this is the third year I've heard those comments The Trent Williams fiasco points to poor communication between the front office and a Pro-bowl player; that should not happen. Predictions: Redskins will continue a revolving door of Oline off the street. Redskins will poach an Olineman from a practice squad at the start of the season. The Rook

    Press Release: #REDSKINS MAKE ROSTER MOVES

    Some film on Deion Harris. https://www.worldwiderams.org/blog/worldwide-rams-draft-profile-deion-harris-north-dakota-cb
  8. On evaluating a wide receiver: "I think when you look across this league at this particular time when you talk about a receiver basically what I think what we need and what we’ve talked about is what you call a ‘go-to-guy'. And that guy you know in tough times, no matter the situation. He’s going to be able to make plays for you - a tough guy who will go across the middle, a guy that will block for you, the guys that wants the football." All I could think about was Pierre Garcon when I read that. The Rook
  9. "... weekly meetings with the club player engagement director..."
  10. I am just thankful there will not be a three hour, pre-release extravaganza. Or maybe there will ... The Rook

    Starting QB 2019???

    This team should strive to take it easy next year. Rest up for the 2020 draft.

    Redskins about to sign Captain Buttfumble

    His 2016 numbers aren't that bad: 16 TDs, 4INTs, QBR 90.7. Pretty equal to his SB year. The team was crap though. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Colin_Kaepernick#Regular_season

    Just maybe, FedEx is also a major part of the reason. http://www.sportingnews.com/us/nfl/list/nfl-stadiums-ranking-best-worst-cowboys-raiders-packers/dky07jdst5w1mcy7cgsm7q6s/slide/1 #31 https://athlonsports.com/nfl/ranking-all-31-nfl-stadiums-worst-best #29 https://moneywise.com/a/worst-stadiums-in-the-nfl #30 The Rook
