  1. I think he does have more value to the skin's right now IF you can get him on the field . But his value to the team on the field goes down if a combination of Penn and Teller ( fine Flowers) is solid and the offense can operate as is . That's when I think trade talks make more sense . If the Skin's could have won on Sunday this would be a totally different conversation .

    Next Day Thread: Redskins vs. Eagles

    The thing I hated with the Peterson benching was essentially the coaches took a weapon out of their own hands .. they want to be a power run first team in interviews but in such an instance you have to commit to that . You don't just carry your main back and then two completely different styles of runner .. if you loose the change of pace in a game, yep that sucks but if your primary runner is hurt or innefective you have to have other options. Too many times we see this with Gruden, he will have one primary runner and 2 or three scat back change of pace guys who cannot carry the load ..
  3. I expected that to be bluster and missdirection almost from the coaching staff and I thought we would have some kind of exotic AP / Guice backfields instead of this supper vanilla rubbish ... Your up 17 points that is exactly the kind of game you can hand off 55 times as Gruden dismissed

    Awesome Problem ; How do you say we split the carries ?

    I would be stunned if we make Peterson in active game day 2qbs 3TE 8OL 5WR 4RB 5 DL 8 LB 8 DB 3 ST It all comes down to what contribution Smallwood has on ST and how healthy we are at CB
  5. I think we have to trade him right now and rip the band aid off and give his money to Brandon and use a high pick on a LT in 2020 which is something we would have to do soon anyway
  6. This is quite interesting...offensive coordinator calling out Trent on the radio . Surely he would have a more direct line if he really wanted to talk . Is this not sounding like "hey we tried to get Trent back "
  7. It was on the Kevin Sheehan show last Monday Link here
  8. I hearing something recently from citing Jerry brewer and a number of other sources . It appears Trent was advised to get the growth on his head looked at two years ago by Redskins medical staff, they thought it might be nothing serious, but probably should get it checked out . He didn't . Now when he eventually did go to another doctor they said it appeared very serious to the extent he was told to get his affairs in order . To me this second oppinion - spurred Trent into action but was wholey irrisponsable of the doctor involved . Until you know something is serious then the best practice is to not worry the patient because all stress does is make things worse . As it turns out the Redskins doctors were right . When something is described as pre-cancerous they are describing something that is not cancerous, but is representative of an abnormal growth . This can include tumours but also cysts, moles, actinic keratosis (raised spots on the skin) . These can become cancerous over time, but depending on the size and where it is most doctors will suggest you monitor it but if it changes in shape or size or sensitivity because the surgury required to remove it is more risky or detremental than the actual risk . What annoys me about the reporting on this , is there seems to be an implication the medical staff is incompetent. What this is is Trent looking for a new contract, and I don't think he sees the Redskins winning anything anytime soon so he wants to play on a more competitive team . I don't think there is anything wrong with that but don't thow other people, people who make a fraction of his salary, under a bus for doing their job .. it's just not a great look
  9. This is perhaps going to sound crazy . But we know Trent partakes in the herb . Now I do think in terms of pain relief there is a case to be made for its benefits , but one of the common side effects of habitual use is paranoia . The reason I bring this up is because it seems no one really seems to know what the issue is and there are conflicting reports , that he wants a trade but is/was not in football shape - and everyone wants to point at the team - but Trent's side just seems irrational
  10. But he is okay for his friends to play here? I don't care anymore, he clearly doesn't . I doubt we will ever get the full story - I doubt it is resolved positivly and Trent goes on to never play a full season again for some other mid teir team
  11. I am just wondering if this is more than just about money - but it might not be team associated. I am just wondering if it is related to the lump he had removed but maybe it was more of a health scare than has been reported - because when it was first talked about it seemed fairly damn serious ... then it became nothing. But if it was cancer, i have no idea on Williams family history with cancer, i have no idea how serious they thought this might do - and yes Williams faces the fear of life changing injury every time he steps on the field but to be in your mid 30s a millionaire multiple times over in the twighlight of your career and then suddenly the big C is in your life, I can see how this changes peoples life priorities - and maybe, just maybe the reason he isn't in camp is related more to his personal motivation just in general... Its just a thought
  12. I think Penn move is an interesting one, i know he came here pre raiders but we needed a RT and he wanted LT money. One thing i have noticed is we appear to be really short of bodies and really do believe it was never their intention to have Flowers anywhere near tackle but he cannot cross train to G while he is the main guy at LT....
  13. There were a lot of rumours flying around about Scott and drinking before the combine incident and not just in DC
  14. Erm no. Brown was a locker room issue.. Spoke out about the coaches and moped on the side line as he was replaced with the likes of JHC and Hamilton
  15. I think the timing is kind of sucky but I think Trent should be paid and I think his recent health scare might have solidified things for him, in terms of priorities. His cap figure right now is (only) in the 14 mil level and that's the kind of OG bracket branden is kind of looking at. Any new contract though needs a get out window in a couple of seasons as we look for his successor
