  1. A front office and coaching staff with a shared vision and long term plan for how to develop the roster. A defense that has a scheme that fits the talent rather than fitting talent into a scheme Everyone on defense knowing their role and playing the same damn coverage. A focus on developing our young QB rather than him being an afterthought. A step forward from all the young players who got extensive playing time last year giving us a good young core group. Now what that all equals in terms of wins and losses I don't know - but more than 3 is a low bar.

    1990: 30 Years Since The Season Before Super

    The memories are great. The bad back and ruined knees? Not so much.

    Jordan Reed Is In Concussion Protocol

    He needs someone to give him much much better advice. No way he should continue playing.

    Jordan Reed Is In Concussion Protocol

    If he’s still in the protocol I would assume the Redskins can’t cut him without an injury settlement. I guess we are waiting to see if he clears the protocol but given he’s been in it for so long that’s got to be a serious concern for Jordan’s ongoing health and for the Redskins who could be on the hook for some percentage of his remaining contract (which has two years left to run). An injury settlement is normally based on how long the injury will take to heal - and clearly here I don’t see how anyone can even make a guess. So therefore no reason for Reed to retire just yet - he might still have some more checks to cash. EDIT Found this on ESPN “The Redskins do not have to reach an injury settlement with Reed in order to release him. If the Redskins do go ahead and release him, Reed could file a grievance, but because the concussion was a 2019 injury -- and he was paid -- he's not entitled to any money in 2020 because his contract is not guaranteed. But if the Redskins cut him before he's cleared and he doesn't play again, he could be entitled to extended injury protection because he has a contract for 2021 for around $600,000.”

    Norman released

    Rivera talked about wanting to get younger at the position so while I do expect us to be active in free agency at DB I doubt it’s anyone over say 27/28.

    Does anyone proofread any more?

    Not all thoughts should be posts let alone threads. Locked as an act of mercy.

    Ooooweee Dunbar wants to be traded!

    The average of the top 10 CB contracts on a per year basis is around $13M. If you go top 20 its still over $10M. Josh Norman averages $15m (holds head in hands and crys) Averages are not everything of course, signing bonus and amount guaranteed is probably more important. But if we are not prepared (or able) to Pay Dunbar something with a $10M average over say 4 years with say a $30M guarantee we should be trading him.
  9. Sure. Or better still end of next season. But right now your position makes no sense.

    Ooooweee Dunbar wants to be traded!

    You mean you don't make more than $3.5M a year?
  11. This kind of comment is just ridiculous. It's totally reasonable to have a view that Haskins is likely to be a bust (as defined as not becoming an above league average starting QB?) - but to be THIS sure he is ALREADY going to be or is a bust ... just nonsense.

    Ooooweee Dunbar wants to be traded!

    Yep. If he is not extended before the start of the season here and plays out his current deal is almost certain he will be leaving as a free agent after the season. Dunbar is a good to very good corner. Unless he falls off a cliff or gets injured again he's likely to get starting CB money in a new deal. and good starting CB money at that. That will likely net us a 3rd in compensation. If someone wants to trade for him now that is where the conversation would start for me and I would ask for a 2nd to start. If I am on the other side of that conversation I say that the 3rd next year is really a 4th this year and hold out my hand to shake ... I would say thanks but no it's going to take the 3rd. I would be OK holding Dunbar to his deal and getting a year of good corner play from him and then letting him hit the free agent market and taking the comp pick. We already need to find one quality corner to replace Norman and finding and signing two in the same year is tough - plus a new regime don't want to send the message that of you are unhappy with your deal you can ask for a trade and get your wish. I also would not discount that after Rivera and his staff finish the film review they decide Dunbar is someone they want to retain and work out an extension.
