    2019 Redskins Training Camp/Preseason Thread

    Sorta sucks for Jay...you have to make the playoffs this year or your fired...by the way you need to do it with a high pick rookie either starting or riding the bench with the fan base calling for him and your best player is holding out. Oh, here's the schedule. Oof!

    Redskins Hotel in Richmond

    Yep, I work downtown one day a week at the James Center next to the hotel. You will see the buses line up on Cary Street to take them over to Broad Street. I am not an autograph hound but imagine they save all that time for camp so it would be hard to get them at the bus line. If you are looking for spots where players might hang out if and when they have some off/down time... In Shockoe Slip, where the Omni is located, several restaurants where you are likely to encounter players. The Tobacco Company is open after their fire and is right across the street. Sam Miller's, food has slipped as of late, right across the street as well along with the dining room of the Hotel Berkeley. Kobe, the hibachi place, just closed. Sine is an Irish Pub just down the street, good beer and food. City Dogs is small but I could see some big old lineman wanted to chow down on some of their food. A little further walk is a BW3, that would be the best sports bar near the Omni. Casa del Barco is along the canal walk and has a great selection of tequila.

    A little insight on Case Keenum.

    Agree with profusion on the ball control offense sentiment. While weak and young at receiver and Guice may not be full speed but can share the load with AP, can't forget that we get Thompson back too. If Reed can contribute and Quinn can from the slot and Thompson out of the backfield, Case just might show us how Jay's offense is supposed to run. All this barring no injuries or setbacks in camp and that is hoping for a lot.

    A little insight on Case Keenum.

    I am hoping for the best case scenario with Case. I don't think we had a lot more options out there this year. My worry being, yes, he was statistically a one year wonder but it's no wonder that he had far better weapons at receiver, a healthy offensive line and a solid if not great defense in Minnesota. He lacked that in Denver and safe to say he will most likely lack that here also. My best case scenario is this...and I am trying to prevent my annual drinking of the kool-aid once camp opens... 1. Case starts the season, team is relatively competitive but due to scheduling, lack of explosive offensive firepower, stumbles to 1 - 5. 2. Those six games of observation combined with extensive pre-season work, readies Haskins to take over along with a youth movement, working with Guice and McLaurin, Harmon, Sims and Quinn. Week 7 home start against the 49ers seems like the safest place to begin the new order. 3. Take the lumps, 5 - 11, would be the best outcome I could see but I have resigned myself to this year being a development year. The biggest question is has Dan and Bruce resigned themselves to this realistic goal to build or will they push Jay under the bus after this season.

    Reuben Foster carted off on 2nd snap of OTA's

    No, we will need him, Ranch, Thousand Island, French and Honey Mustard to play offensive line after all the starters get hurt.

    Spurrier comment

    I wish I had been a reporter there for a follow up question: "Ball Coach, you mention even winning with the Redskins. In your opinion, do you think now that the other teams with competent coaches and pro experience will see the tape and see you are running the same old schtick that does not translate to the pros, it will likely be your one win of the season?"

    It Could Have Been Worse (or better)...A look back

    I had Yacketysax going through my head as I read through Riggo's post.

    The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    He would certainly help instantly from a PR standpoint. A cleaner more organized look with a respected name. Credibility goes a long way. Now, I always thought Dungy was a bit overrated as a coach and maybe a little too preachy for my taste and I have no measure of his evaluation of football talent. He was a player and a Super Bowl winning coach but he won that Super Bowl with what equates to a coach at QB in Peyton Manning. He could excel at the job but maybe someone with more insight can tell me his qualifications for GM.

    The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    Yep...spot on. I doubt Tony Dungy would even take Dan or Bruce's call.

    Pathetic crowds at home opener

    I remember watching as the Raiders and jaguars had to start tarping over seats to mask a disinterested fanbase and despite our *ahem* struggles, never, ever thought that would become the Redskins but here we are. The Jags at least are coming off an AFC Championship appearance and the Raiders are moving to a city that will fit their image and has a plan. We however, are a rudderless ship. No plan, no hope. The only thing I can say, at least the field looked in a good shape yesterday. I cannot remember it looking in such good shape this late in the season for a long time. That's how bad this has become, I am texting with my buds about field condition.

    Redskins about to sign Captain Buttfumble

    And we had a playoff run with Todd Collins. It can happen. Oh, context, you were referring to 3rd string...my bad. Good examples, again, we can win this division.

    The Conspiracy Thread

    Play call was Jay but don't think he expected Colt to throw in double coverage. So, going to blame both of them on that one. 10 yards underneath was all we needed. I need to watch the replay and see how many seconds tick off waiting for that moonball to come down.
  13. I have a Cooley jersey in that throwback. I liked the combo for a bit but not to get all superstitious but I think our record is crap in them. Maybe we won 1 game, not sure. Problem is, you can find issues or extended periods of suck with most of our throwbacks. The best throwback we got will forever be stained with Wuerffel, Matthews and OBC.

    The Offensive Line Thread

    Agree Sandy Monk. I have a soft spot for Moses being a UVa fan but he has not looked good at all this year. Don't know if it is health, if he peaked or short comings were masked by strength of line when healthy. I do appreciate his warrior mentality though.
