    2020 Comprehensive Draft Thread

    May have been posted on twitter but it doesn't sound baseless. And it doesn't sound as if that prognosis is based on watching a play...sounded more like it's based on info relayed to them after the injury occurred.
  2. Like I said, find whatever there is concerning you, me, and Campbell. And I will gladly help you find this stuff if you need any help. Your argument would be far more persuasive if you were diretly quoting things I posted back then instead of this vague overview of things as you remember it, right? So let's do it.
  3. No, please do...I want you to re-document everything concerning me, you, and Campbell. I'll help you locate stuff if you can't find it. I know exactly what my stance was on Campbell so I'm interested to see if your depleted analytical skills stretch back 10+ years or if this is something more recent lol...let me know if you need any help. I'll even ask the mods if there's a quick way of searching for stuff like this. I have zero problem with you doing so. I mean, none whatsoever. But he wasn't half-right, though. Griffin's bust status had little to do with his running. He could have said both would bust because he doesn't like black QBs...would he still be half-right simply because one player did indeed become a bust?
  4. So your memory is as bad as your analytical skills lol...good to know.
  5. Disregarding the logic fallacy of that statement, where does this info come from? What did I miss?
  6. For fans, what is the benefit of declaring Haskins a bust now, this very moment?... What's the reward from doing so now instead of, say, in January or waiting until next October? Do you get a free set of steak knives or something? Is it just trolling as a sport? Is it because there are no ramifications from doing so--that if Haskins ends up being a good QB it won't matter what you're saying now, so why not toss out all the hot takes that you can? I'm all for everyone having their own opinions, positive or negative, doesn't matter to me. But outside of stubborn adherence to certain beliefs I can't understand just a blatant refusal to wait and see if a player develops. My brother-in-law--halfway through the 2012 season--said Russell Wilson and RG3 would both bust hard in the NFL, even though he had never seen either QB actually play, because "I don't like running QBs". He didn't see a need to wait. He didn't even see a need to watch them play lol...

    Why are we this bad on the field?

    Oh, I definitely agree with you 100%....neither Dan or Bruce is football-savvy enough to come up with a different template to use to make a franchise consistently competitive and keep it on track from year to year. The tried-and-true template that you describe above would counterbalance some of their ineptitude.

    Why are we this bad on the field?

    LOL @ the part in bold As for the rest...if it were to have played like that, I agree. I'm assuming, though, that a guy who is on the hot seat and doesn't want to be fired is gonna give the higher ups whatever impression they want to see from him, at least initially. So not being on board with drafting Haskins wouldn't be as obvious in May as it would have been in September, for example. But in general, yeah, if the FO and owner believe in the QB they just drafted and the HC who is already on the hot seat disregards any real plan to develop said QB, tossing him out the door in May and expediting things to the point that we're at now would actually have been an understandable move. Like the pick or not, it's the HC's job to make sure a plan is in place to develop all draft picks.
  9. Yes, there will always be some who think every move and utterance from the Skins that doesn't validate its dysfunction is due to Bruce and Dan's manipulating things...conspiracy theorists will always exist no matter the topic lol. But the tweet, combined with Callahan's comments on wanting to sit and discuss the move to Haskins with the current vet QBs before making any public comments, would--I would like to think--let those particular narratives of this being dictated against Callahan's wishes and Haskins just being a lazy, disinterested draft pick by Dan to die down noticeably.

    You're not gonna find anyone worthwhile in May, especially since you're already got your offseason plan in effect...better to stick with your current coach.
  11. The double narrative of Callahan is lying about it being his decision to start Haskins and Haskins being lazy and disinterested pretty much died with that tweet.
  12. You're coming across as desperate for my attention lol...show some self-respect, girl!

    They would have had to fire Gruden in May.

    What would you do IF YOU bought the team???

    Not sure what I'd do next, though...
  15. Sweat is starting to come into his own, though...slower than expected and wanted, but there are indeed signs. if he pans out, that lost 2nd won't feel like a lost 2nd anymore.
  16. Califan007

    Why are we this bad on the field?

    No QB (so far) and no coach.
  17. The Cowboys' wins have come against teams with a combined record of 10-27 lol (12-35 if you count the Giants twice)...so you may not be too far off.

    SI: Bezos & Amazon Want In ...On the Redskins?

    I have no idea if what you're saying is even valid lol...but that first sentence in bold most definitely is. The rest sounds plausible, though. And saying "Anyone but Snyder" when it comes to a new owner isn't the right mindset to have. Afterall, "Anyone but Vinny" is one reason we now have Bruce.
  19. It's definitely the norm...anything that involves any level of controversy for any team will have local beat writers looking for info, and "sources" willing to give it to them for one reason or another. And yes, sometimes the info from the sources is exaggerated and even completely false. Whether or not it gets repeated by the media depends on how much they desire to double/triple check the info vs how much they want to be first with the info.

    2019 Game Day Thread

    I have both finishing 8-8...which would actually fit the "Kurk can't beat winning teams" narrative lol...

    The Bye-Week Game Thread

    Since this involves winning a higher draft pick, I doubt too many people are gonna complain lol...

    SI: Bezos & Amazon Want In ...On the Redskins?

    I didn't get the impression it would be about buying the Skins from Snyder, but rather joining him in some way (no idea how) as part-owner, maybe?...I dunno....
  23. Is that supposed to be Kurk? lol...VOS will have this hanging over his bed.
