    Welcome to the Redskins Chase Young DE Ohio State

    Only the skins would give up on their teenage 1st round QB pick after a half season, to draft an injured flash-in the pan, while overlooking the most dominant player to hit the draft in this generation. Only skins fans would compare Kerrigan to Young. I can't wait to see the dumpster fire that this draft will be. I rescind it all if this is a smokescreen in case the bengals draft Young #1 overall.

    Ooooweee Dunbar wants to be traded!

    You're kidding right? He has only improved year after year and has been a stalwart on D. He has shut down #1's and earned a payday, unlike his counter part that just got cut, who got a payday but never showed it with his play.

    Ooooweee Dunbar wants to be traded!

    Diff situation. Dunbar has done everything the org has asked him to do and has turned into a lights out top flight CB1 and is getting paid like a backup. If he has not been contacted by RR and the coaches it is only normal to wonder where you stand and if you are part of the team's plans going forward. Pay him. He has been developed locally and was probably the #1 player on D last year. He is just getting into his prime, and this is a core redskin if there ever has been one. RR will work it out, they were probably so focused on getting TWilliams in the fold that Dunbar was next phase?...

    Norman released

    Can we go ahead and use a chunk of that to extend Dunbar?

    2020 Comprehensive Draft Thread

    I really think all this Trade down noise is Lions or Giants fans hoping that we pass on Young!!!! Simmons looks good, but good grief, to pass on Young would be one of the dumber moves the org would have ever made. Comparable to Trading away Bailey, or Signing Haynesworth. Dont be suckered in by the fans of other teams making noise! In Chase we Trust!!! lol

    Great work here. Becomes apparent that the Flowers and Scherrf resigning questions are huge. If they walk and Williams does not come back, that leaves Roulier as the only lineman worth the starters role. Martin and Moses will stick around and probably start due to necessity, but it is clear that OL is a huge question mark right now. Lets break it down this way: (Groups listed in order of need) Position groups look good as is: (Strongest to weakest) P DT K LS DE (Will be obscene once we welcome Mr Young) SS C Position Groups that are probably good, but would not hurt to upgrade: - RB (This could be all set if you are confident in AP's age, and Guice and Love's health, but personally I am nervous) - MIKE (Is HOlcomb going to be able to man the middle effectively? He may be better cut as an OLB with a high draft pick or FA acquisition going to MLB) - WR ( IMOH we are set here, but I an understand the desire to bring in a solid Vet) ( I say forget a solid Vet, develop or bring in a play maker that will NOT be a distraction) Position Groups that really need an upgrade: (Weakest to strongest) - CB ( I love Dunbar, Moreou and Moreland, but Norman needs to go, and we need better depth) - TE (THis is almost a dumpster fire, but Sprinkle and HH are both "Serviceable" ) ( we could use an upgraded starter, I am rooting for Hoope, FA from ATL) - OLB (you cannot rely on Foster coming back) Need at least 1 more starter for the 4-3 to be set. - QB ( I am fine with DH as a starter) (You will need a 3rd string, and if Alex does not recover a 2nd string) (I would be stunned if AS can make it back to the field) Dumpster Fire: (Weakest to strongest) - G (Really hope we retain both Scheff and Flowers) - T (Need to find 1 or 2 starters) - FS (Say it aint so Monte!? He will be a RR example cut) (Apke could be serviceable if JDR can work magic with his speed, but I am skeptical) - FB Not sure what to say here.

    By the same token, every year there are players chosen in the first round that never live up to billing, and are mediocre, less than average players in the NFL. Young appears to be one of those players that while he may not be the next Reggie White or Bruce Smith, he should not be the next Kedric Golston.

    One of the things that might be missed is how much having a dominate player makes those around him better. A good OLman and a good S or CB is going to make a terrible D a bit better. However we know that there is loads of potential already latent in our Dline, and a dominant gamechanger exponentially makes the line better. A dLine that is stopping the run or sacking the qb, makes for more rested, better playmaking from the LB, and fresher legs on the DB's. A D that is dominant, takes the pressure off the Offense and allows for more time eating running plays, and less dependency on the passing game. THis allows for fresher WR's and more effective long bombs when they are called. All this from drafting a gamechanging DE. A couple of "good" first rounders to "fill holes" aint gonna do that. Don't mess this up. Draft Mr Young and loose the dogs of war! The only trade-down scenario is if the Bengals draft Young. Then you trade for Miami's first rounders and next years first so that they can get their QB.

    OC - Scott Turner incoming

    Yeesh, what a mess to walk into. Lots of talented headcases, rookies with potential and an angry disgruntled fanbase. Wait are we talking about JMc or RR?.....
  11. Weird to go with those you know and had success with? I'll take Carolina's results, over the time of RR's tenure. Of the 3 key positions, DC and SpecTeams have been filled by non RR dudes. RR can fill the spots with whomever he wants, looking forward to the changes!
  12. Here is hoping we see a huge jump next year with the LB corps.
  13. Is He our next Lorenzo Alexander?

    Careful what you ask for. Success brings a bunch of mouthy bandwaggonner fans that are fickle and unloyal and critcal of everything. We are too old, tired and hopeless that the conversation stays civil..... lol

    OC - Scott Turner incoming

    Fans are afraid we are letting the next McVey, Kyle Shannahan slip through our fingers. I will say that KOC seemed to contribute heavily to DH growth, but who knows if/what he will evolve into.
