    Case Keenum Named Week 1 Starter

    He's been padding his stats against prevent defenses for the first 2 games. Something like this was inevitable against a good defense.

    Thats cute, doesn't mean he's worth being what he's paid. How'd yah boi tonight? Bum ass can barely tackle a RB.

    Sacks aren't the only thing that determine whether an edge rusher is worth their pay. His sack numbers are easier to accrue playing against RTs. (Maybe one of the reasons Preston Smith is showing out well this year). Getting QB pressure regularly would make me think higher of him. Kerrigan is an all or nothing player. Either he makes a highlight play or you don't notice him. He's basically made one play worth a damn this season. Oh, and he's pretty unbearable against the Run... A lot of this could be Manusky not using him right...and everyone else this season... but that doesn't absolve Kerrigan from a horrible start this season. His efficacy and the rest of the D-line's efficacy cannot be tied to J. Allen...that is really damning.

    Kerrigan can't regularly beat opposing RTs.. I'm not sure what is "team friendly"about this contract when he is a pretty mediocre as a every down linemen. What he has done in the past is meaningless now. He's 31 and aging. If money can be applied elsewhere, do it...otherwise there is little logical reason to think he's gonna get better next year. Short of PEDs anyways. The best thing he cold for us is catch fire and get a couple multi sack games (Cause that's really the only way he shows up) as try to flip him for a mid-to late pick. Norman can be gone tomorrow if he plays as he has. Moses has amazingly regressed and needs to be replaced...Reed...man just needs to retire for his own health, I feel bad for him. Or you know...fire Manusky and see if any of these dudes are salvageable

    I'm happy for Preston Smith. Looks great when a guy is allowed to play to his strengths instead of being completely dogmatic and predictable due to rigid personnel implementation.
  6. He's probably in the 45-75 range in terms of overall impact amongst DLmen. He's a very hot and cold guy. And he's only particularly noticeable like maybe 5 games a year. Unacceptable. On top of that it isn't like he's going at LT's all the time. His efficacy against the run hasn't been there in like a season and a half now too. Dude gets a pass by most skins fans...I can only imagine why.

    0-6 Start, Tell Me It Can't Happen, Please....

    I wouldn't call Case "good," merely a little above average. He's missing key plays and throws here and there that kill drives and then has to fight through long down and distances. He's had his numbers inflated a bit since 4th quarters are full of prevent against us since we're down 3 scores. I don't think Haskins would necessarily win us any of the two games we've had so far, but I don't think he'd do significantly worse then Case. He's gotten real lucky with some INTs not being secured. I'm actually more worried about him going up against the Bear's defense then either of the eagles or cowboys. The Bears' d-line is pretty damn great... unlike our 4 stooges.
  8. Kerrigan should be dealt for a 4th-5th rounder (although I doubt anyone would give that to us for him). Dude plays like a vet min guy out there. He basically earns half his contract whenever we play the giants. Ionnaidis and Payne should be contributing more, in Payne's defense he actually applied pressure on more then one play though so he's got that over the rest. Sweat is a rookie but he's getting man handled out there. Don't think this scheme helps him out.

    2020 Comprehensive Draft Thread

    End rushers should be a priority after O-line help. Kerrigan looks like molasses out there.
  10. Murphy's law: 1 billion. Redskins: 0 At least it isn't his ACL surgery knee. Hope he can make a speedy recovery and keep his spirits up.

    The Skins Can't Win With These Coaches

    James Dolan is in a tier all alone when it comes to awful. Not that Snyder isn't a tire fire in his own right.

    What Actually Impressed You? (Week 1 Edition)

    Keenum's 1st half was impressive although he began to taper off in 2nd quarter. His numbers got a little inflated by that last garbage time drive. Overall decent, better then one could expect in his situation. Maybe a B- performance. The offensive line pass protection was surprisingly not awful. But a lot of that was absolved by their penalties. Lots of drive killers. Their run blocking was also pretty abominable. Overall maybe a C performance. Terry was as productive as one could have hoped for. Needed more consistency from everyone else however. Definitely looks like it could be better then last season. J. Allen surprised the hell out of me. As soon as he left, Kerrigan, payne and Matt looked like relative nobodies. Doesn't bode well. Guice made some nice catches out of the backfield, but as a runner, deflating. First game as a pro isn't the end of the world but hopefully he can get it going. Unless gruden get's a brain and activates Peterson.
  13. Kerrigan has like 4-5 really great games a year but is otherwise a non factor in the rest. He isn't worth his salary. That is the harsh truth. Restructure his salary or move on for him. He's too streaky in his "impact". Ioannidis was a relative no show today, maybe a tackle or two for him. Payne had a couple good plays but was largely ineffective too, but I'm less likely to get mad at 2nd year players. I don't think the defensive play calling did anyone any favors today, guys looked tired and in the wrong places in a lot important plays. Holcomb looked average, wouldn't want him to tackle in space or cover too much but he did have a few decent plays in an afternoon largely devoid of praise. Allen's trickle down effect on the line is a lot more powerful than I thought. That or Kerrigan and company really aren't worth their paycheck/not ready yet.

    Redskins receiving corp is beginning to shape up

    Davis actually has some promising potential...yet we cut him. Not sure what a guy like Quinn has done to remain on the roster. Outside of being one of Gruden's favs apparently.

    The Official Washington Wizards Thread: The JOHN WALL ERA

    Assuming KD doesn't come here, I'd look ino trading everyone not named Wall or Beal for Derrick Favors. Gortat+1sts+Oubre might get it done. Favors is only 24 and probably the most underrated player regardless of position in the NBA. Unfortunately he isn't a FA until 2018 which is why trading for him is the only plausible way, but you would also have to hope Utah finishes in purgatory again, and I think they'll eventually be contending for the 8th seed this season so that dream might be foolish. Al Horford is another option but I am skeptical of maxing him out although he'd also be a near perfect fit. He has less mileage on his legs since the pectoral tears sidelined him for like 2 seasons, but he has since fixed his lifting habits so I don't think his health is an issue anymore. Terrance Jones is worth throwing some money at, he is a starting quality 4, not great yet but still relatively young for a big. Outside of that I'd look for a stopgap 4 in '16 and hold off till the '17 FA class to be honest. The '16 FA class is kinda meh for our needs.

    He shot 34% last season from 3... He said the 3 ball is something he worked on it so I wouldn't be surprised if he is up to say... 37-38% on a bit more volume. He was a good shooter in college and puts in the work. Confidence can go a long way as well. Obviously he won't be a prolific three point shooter but I don't think he'll be a liability.
  17. nuposse87

    The Official Washington Wizards Thread: The JOHN WALL ERA

    He shot 35.1 % from distance in '13-'14... so it is very possible for him. What he needs to do is up his volume of 3s and drive... I actually think he may drive a little less this season cause of the hand injury he sustained, I hope that isn't the case but I wonder if it affects his psychology a bit in his aggression. He can further bolster his shot selection with more post moves. Not many PGs sans maybe Westbrook and Marcus Smart are more powerful then him...

    We kinda need to find the diamonds in the rough. A guy who I watched a bit after Karl came to SAC was Derrick Williams. Who for his draft position and salary, is absolutely a bust. However, his offensive shooting efficiency blossomed playing in Karl's system. He still cannot rebound worth a damn, which I wonder if is due to playing to Cousins who gets like every ****ing rebound. But I'd offer him a minimum contract, player option for 2nd year. Basically what I am banking on is the "John Wall effect" and Williams being privy to it. If he has a surprisingly good '15-'16 season playing next to Wall, when the cap rises in '16 he can make a good amount of long term security. He'd have to be willing to bet on himself. I don't know, if Drew Gooden can be salvaged for 20 mins a game, derrick williams should be able to as well. I will also give Randy the fact he's made some questionable defenders play better then usual so maybe he can help Williams there.

    beyond the 5th pick, players who hold more value and production today then Miller+Foye: Teague, Holiday, Lawson, Collison, Cassipi, Gibson, Carroll, Jerebko, and Demar (although i'm not a fan of him). And also...Curry. So there were good rotation players available, just no foresight to realize it.

    The Official Washington Wizards Thread: The JOHN WALL ERA

    even if he didn't want curry there were good players to be had in that draft class. All of whom, had more value then Foye and Miller, who weren't exactly pillars of our foundation here.

    You don't get credit for picking consensus players. Wall and beal were the basically the consensus picks at that time. He gave up a massive expiring AND a 1st rounder for Gortat. On top of that outbid himself with the contract length. If Porter turns out to be a better player then Noel he'll get credit there, but I have my doubts as a Porter fan. He signed Eric Maynor, one of the worst NBA signings I have ever seen. Maynor couldn't even cut it in PHIL. His '11 draft class was abominable. He also didn't bring Sato over since he wanted Maynor. Had to give up assets in order to get Miller, which eventually became sessions. And now sato by every objective analysis is turning out to be a good player and we can't bring him over until the cap balloons, thus depreciating his value. Yay our nimrod GM. Dude completely disvalues 2nd rounders, which is a big no-no in the modern NBA. The smart NBA FO know how to use em. Look at the Spurs, HOU, OKC, and ATL. And if not 2nd rounders, he is a terrible drafter outside of the lottery. Hell even outside of the top 3. Basically choice has to be so retardly simple for him to make it in order for him not to screw it up. Singleton. Bust. Mack. Not here. Booker. Not here. Seraphin Bust (he is a bad player and there is no objective way to qualify him as a good player unless you enjoy being ignorant to reality). Opec. Bust. McGee. Bust. Young. Moron. Blatche. Retard. He doesn't know how to draft, overpays FAs, and gets the short end on almost every trade (traded an expiring for traditionally flawed and overpaid players in Okafor and Ariza and couldn't even squeeze another pick in return). But yah, 2nd round wooooo. Truth is we are still a treadmill team. We have some young pieces that will keep us quasi relevant until '16 but if we don't land Durant, do people really trust EG as a manager of assets to get us that next star player? Been a mediocre franchise so long people are content with being a treadmill team. Bleh. Dude is a fool. A sports stain on DC. And we won't go anywhere as a franchise until we purge him from our city. So yah, **** Ernie Grunfeld.

    Lyles shot 14% from the 3 pt line last season....he's a guy I'd look to avoid to be honest. Especially if Portis and Looney are still on the board. We actually need a S4 prospect with proven 3 pt range. I don't see him drastically improving his 3 pt range, at least I see no evidence saying he may. As for Sato, I thought he wanted to come over the season we signed Maynor, but he didn't cause we didn't want to give him a guaranteed roster spot....Sure gotta love that Maynor signing. Worst player I've ever seen in a wiz uniform.

    He plays for FC Barcelona I believe and has pretty decent international competition. I believe he was their primary backup guard and got about 20 mins a game. He had a PER of 20 and really high TS of 66%. His raw production was 8-3-3-1. What is a good sign is he's made incremental improvements in 3pt shooting for the past 3 seasons and on a minutes basis still playing good ball with higher efficiency compared to last season, even though he is, I THINK, in a backup role now...could be wrong about that, but not sure why he plays only 19.9 minutes. I have no clue about his defense, but he is athletic and hustles, if nothing else I believe he could become an adequate defender. If small PGs bother him we can probably have him switch out to the 2 if need be. The only thing is I don't know if we can buyout his contract anytime soon. My guess is the soonest we can get him is in the '16-'17 season, although I'd prefer sooner because if we could lock him into an MLE contract before the cap spike it'd probably be a bargain. This is where I found his international stats: http://basketball.realgm.com/player/Tomas-Satoransky/Summary/24374

    I'm extremely happy with the results, definitely don't mind eating crow on the fact I thought we'd lose in 6. The 4th quarter bench scared the **** outta me. The short rotation however is working well, which is kind of an indictment on our lack of depth, cause Randy really is an intelligible coach and his issue is he didn't have the talent he wanted then Randy did him a disservice. I still think Randy is a mediocre to bad coach (because of RS returns) but he's been gifted two pretty situations. Casey is a moron of horrific magnitude. I feel bad for Raps fans cause they don't have cornerstone young players like we do to fall back on. Randy's defense has been masterful for 6 quarters. Still don't get why Hump has been buried, his energy and defense would help the 2nd unit, but hey w/e works for now (ATL is a different league then TOR). Draft a stretch 4 and sign a combo guard and we may have the depth we need to be a 50 win team next season.

    Man am I glad I was wrong about James Johnson. Beal and Wall and playing masterful games, as are Gortat and Nene.
