  1. Honestly I don't think any team wants to pay what he wants. And they just happen to be in a real jam with money right now.
  2. I said this earlier but the Vikings are so cap strapped I couldn't see it happening. I still believe they will unload him before training camp.
  3. I love this guy. He is perfect for this "new'' team Rivera is trying to put together. He so loves the game. Always looking to improve.
  4. What I am saying is in games I saw last year they seemed to get sacks in bundles against certain teams in certain games. There was no consistency. I think Chase anchors in consistency. I think this a real solid draft for receivers, even into the 4th round so I think we are going to pick up a decent one. I like Sims a lot too but based more on potential and the little I have seen of him. And you know the O can take a real major step this year again with decent coaching and I am super hopeful that Haskins will progress.
  5. I really needed a laugh. Fantastic Bang! The Ron Rivera part was great.
  6. All I am saying here is that on paper our D upfront was supposed to be very good, excellent, but did not perform to expectations from what I saw. Stats can be misleading particularly when it comes to sacks. And I watched every pathetic game. It was not consistent. We need some real Pro Bowl caliber guys IMO. Yeah look at the 1991 team, a lot of studs on both sides of the ball. I look at our O and I think we have a stud in Terry McLaurin. I look at Chase Young and I see another. I think that coaching is a MAJOR factor in teams success. Scheme. Preparedness. Accountability and Execution. Our D coaches have been rather mediocre IMO since well Gregg Williams.
  7. And that is the point. We may not be world beaters to begin with but i actually like how our defense would look with Chase Young. It would really round it out. The biggest question right now on the D is at LB and FS IMO. Getting consistent pressure upfront helps takes some pressure off the secondary. I think just having decent coaches is a big plus. I would just not want to pass on Chase Young.
  8. Vikings are so cap strapped I can't see it. Williams is going to want too much.
  9. And it was reported he had 20 concussions. I was watching him being interviewed and his girlfriend kept having to keep him on track, and she had to say twice - "that is not what she is asking you". I am with you. I am actually sad to hear this. I was hoping he would find something to be his adrenaline fix going forward. Anyway back to one point here. I think the Bucks bringing in Gronk wind up with an excellent tight end set providing numerous options for Brady, including some protection on the line if need be. I would keep the TE they have and of course you bring in Gronk. I remember the Patriots when they had Hernandez and Gronk - it can be powerful with right duet.
  10. I want Haskins to be our starter because it will mean he understands the offense, can make the reads, etc. And most of all, for me at least, it would mean we didn't waste a mid round 1st round pick. Wouldn't it be great for us Skins fans to actually have a franchise QB? If I am Haskins I am thinking bring on the competition. If I can't beat out Allen well then I don't deserve to start. Good athletes thrive off competition.
  11. Based upon where we picked Haskins in the draft last year this is a solid move. He gets his opportunity. Now what he does with it who knows? If Kyle Allen is Haskins "competition" it seems fair. Didn't Rivera say he wants competition at every position? It seems to me Rivera is actually giving both of these guys an opportunity to prove they deserve to be starters in the NFL.
  12. Why would Rivera want to sign either TW or Dunbar to anything? He does not have to which to me has been the most important element in this. Plus it occurs to me that Rivera would have completely contradicted himself if he gave into the demands of either of these two players. It is a very clear message that players that use social media rather then going their agents to air their grievances is not going to end well. The best play with someone like Trent was exactly what Rivera did - sure go ahead Trent check your market value. It is so smart yet respectful because there is no way Trent can come back and act like a malcontent because Rivera gave him the opportunity to find a team. And I think our leverage increases exponentially as this plays out. The motivation to do well, so either of them gets paid in the future, means they both give it their all on a team friendly deal for the Skins. I am super happy the way Rivera has handled this. And I know we have missed out on some guys here in FA but frankly no matter what, I look forward to us not being the brunt of so many jokes because of the "leaks" out of the clubhouse, the tweets, etc. Essentially the drama being shelved.
  13. Absolutely. A change in scenery, scheme and coaching has done many players good. Just look at the ones who left here and moved to other teams. I think we have good evaluators of talent, and patience may be called for. Still would like to see us get Tre Boston and possibly Fuller if he is available.
  14. I think they are going to target Boston and Fuller. Won't break the bank and both are solid. But we also need a decent TE. Wonder what they have in mind. Might be TE by committee at this point.
  15. No he actually folds in big games the same accusations levied at Cousins. Actually your now making me realize his dual threat ability can lead to failure at times. You got me thinking there.
  16. Why would they have buyers remorse? It is a team sport. He got them to the playoffs. Look at Dak Prescott. I don't hear anyone saying anything about the deal his mediocre ass is trying to pull off.
  17. This team simply can't take the risk of Tua. He has been seriously injured and at the risk of repeating myself again, guys in the NFL are bigger, faster and stronger. What will happen to him in the NFL? Is the risk worth it? I don't think so. The track record of the Redskins in taking prior injured players has been abysmal. If Cleveland was not so QB hungry they would snatch Young up in a second. Because the BPA in this draft is Chase Young. The deal with Haskins again IMO is that there are entirely too many unknowns. His improvement over the last three games of the season certainly led many to breathe a sigh of relief. I know I did. But I think one major unknown, but one that is true for many rookie QB's is will the improvement continue to grow during his sophomore season. Will he be able to build upon the improvements we all saw? Will he work on some of the mechanical issues some have posted about here and mentioned by some analysts. I truly believe Rivera is going to roll with him but bring in a vet for competition.
  18. I don't think the Girls are going to let Cooper go. They are working real hard at overspending on the Prescott deal (that is great it dumb asses) and they are probably going to tag Cooper if they can't work a deal out. I can't see them letting him go. No way.
  19. Dunbar coming back in line based upon the tweet. I mean between Rivera leading the way and other coaches and a revamped defense with Del Rio, and hopefully Chase Young, yeah put your money where your mouth is Dunbar and play. He will be part of the team no doubt. If he balls out he will get his contract won't he?
  20. At this rate I don't think Trent is going to have a potential landing spot until after the draft. A year off the grind of an NFL season for a talented player I can't see it being a negative, I just can't. But his asking price is high. But then there is supply and demand. Who needs a LT that thinks they can compete for a title? Then the price tag is not that outrageous. I was hoping for a second round pick in this draft or with a that can't afford to part with any draft picks, an outright trade like Trent for Stefon Diggs.
  21. I think it makes most sense, balancing all the comments regarding Trent in this thread, that the Skins could get a second rounder. Would love to get a pick in the second round and pick up a LB. Trent says he is in shape. I believe him. He knows what it takes. Plus he wants a fat contract. He has to be at his best. A year off from the grind of the NFL helps a players body. I think any team thinking about Brady, just as one example, might be a good candidate for Trent if they do not have a good LT. I don't know if it is conceivable to get a first. But a #2 absolutely.
