    Johnson

    What this thread needs is Gabby Johnson and some of his authentic frontier gibberish!
  2. They only got that “1” because of a BS Roughing The Passer call late in the game.

    The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    I credit Gibbs more for helping keep a festering ship afloat than Vinny LOL! Please don’t make me choose. That’s like choosing between being castrated or having my nuts cauterized while conscious and without anesthesia.

    Brucie can’t even sell on the one area people thought he’d be good... schmoozing. Now can he go, please? Not that it matters. Kindergarten Ninja... Little Brucie... Danny will just replace with the third version.

    The Sean McVay Tracker

    ????? Based on what? Manning was done and done, but Brady looks a few years away from done, even in his early 40’s. As as far as McVay goes, he’ll go as far as the Defense takes him. All trends change and the next may be toward the Defenses. ‘Skins are behind the coaching curve... way behind... and a lot of these big-powered Offenses may seemingly come down-to-Earth over the next few seasons, unless the NFL continues to skew the rules in favor of the Offenses.

    The Sean McVay Tracker

    The score felt exponentially closer than the game itself. It truly never felt as if the Rams has anything in-store for NE. Just never had that feeling things would change and even 3-0 seemed like a possibility. NE moved the ball well enough and easily enough, then Brady has a deflected pass get picked off, then a missed FG. Even then, NE just seemed to say “Ok, let’s go.” Just really never felt like the Rams would ever mount an effective challenge. As good a game as Wade Philips called against NE’s Offense, McVay seemed completely mystified by what the Patriots did and Goff completely collapsed. McVay has a way of making acceptable QB’s look like stat kings until they turtle when the chips are down.

    Alex Smith is lucky to have two legs. There’s zero chance he plays next season, if ever again.
  9. Second position coach hire who was unemployed for an extended period. Who needs the Virginia Employment Commission when you have the Redskins?

    At the very least, you can pay for your own choice of misery...

    McVay got the job from the Rams before Gruden got the extension, at least on paper. If the ‘Skins truly had notion of promoting him, they’d have taken advantage of Gruden’s eventual lame-duck status. It was never going to happen. If McVay is still here and the ‘Skins decides to fire Gruden just to promote McVay, do you think McVay accepts or do you think he looks outside the organization? At least 6-7 of these gigs pop up yearly. Sure, the Rams seemed like a good opportunity with a “new” city, but I don’t believe there’s any way at all he stays here, if for just looking at it and thinking how messed up that situation is.

    I don’t believe I’ve ever said they’re just desperate and thankful for a job. I believe McVay knew deep inside he’d have opportunities and he did. If you’re good, you’re good. I don’t believe anymore the “There are only 32 of of these, so bla, bla, bla” because there’s so much turnover every season. Do you think Brucie and Danny are capable of selling that to someone like McVay? Norval Gruden, sure. I don’t know about McVay.

    Picture yourself in a job. Say you’re working for a team lead who has just been given a vote of confidence by your manager, a nice raise and a corner office. A week later, that team lead is fired only because you’re kicking ass at your job and he wants to promote you to the other guy’s position. Would you take the job or would you say “This is pretty ****ed up” especially knowing the same could happen to you a couple years down the road? Keep in mind, your manager (the one who did the firing) has a history of being a Napoleonic douche of unimaginable proportions.

    Optics. They had just given Gruden a contract extension for whatever reason. They're stubborn all-around for a myriad of reasons and just want everyone to like them, but feign surprise when they discover no one does. Dan Snyder is that loser kid everyone either picked on or hated who thought suddenly getting rich meant everyone would like him. Brucie is only his latest enabler. He had Vinny, Portis, RGIII... this is nothing new. Who’s to say McVay would have taken the job if offered, anyway? If he’s a half-decent human being, he’d have seen what was up and refused it.
