  1. I just dont get why this is so difficult for so many fans to get. Trent isnt sitting out because he wants a few million more, but that seems to be the nice little punching bag people are making up to for some reason make an inept front office and management look better. Trent is sitting out because for years already hes probably been thinking about life after football, and by all appearances when he had what could have been a life threatening medical condition, Redskins training staff lied to him about it, and put his life at risk for the sake of a better season for Jay and Bruces jobs. To find out how casually they treated his life probably set him off. His wife was probably and still is livid about it, as is the rest of his family, as would be ANY of you that had an employer do such a thing. It scared him, it scared them, and showed him just how little the organization cared about him. Its insane the number of people on here that are going "hes so selfish", but then again, its been a delusional bunch for some time now...

    The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    As horrid as a GM as I think Allen is, I learned something amazing through that piece there.......that further points out how super horrid he is. This year, our offense looks terrible. We dont have a starting QB. We dont have a left side of an offensive line. We dont have receivers. We dont have TEs who are likely to play more than 6-7 games. In fact the only position on the offense that feels like it has some strength is RB. I think fans almost universally feel the defensive side is much better than the offensive side, and has to carry them through games. Yet with all that, the Redskins have the #1 highest paid offense in the entire NFL. Let that one sink in. Thanks Brucey.
  3. Trent has awesome leverage. He just had his perspective about life changed by a scary medical situation. His leverage is he can just retire and live on his many many many millions, which is way more common for stars these days. And the other half of that leverage is he knows if he did the Redskins would be sunk. He could also just retire for a year, watch Gruden and Allen both be fired, and unretire.
  4. #FireBruceAllen Its not like we havent known this for years, and its not like its a surprise when someone of his character(or lack thereof) for fear of his job pushes medical staff in a way that harms players.
  5. Heck, we can save $38 million next year just by cutting Norman and Reed this year. Im honestly not sure either are worth having on the roster this year anyway, with Reed too injured, and Moreau supposedly better outside where Norman is playing anyway. Waiting one more year to cut them shorts us 18 million, and I just dont think they are worth even half of that right now, and about expendable.

    Would you want HBO Hard Knocks to feature us this year?

    I kind of think the opposite, I think showcasing the pure dysfunction of this franchise at what will likely be a breaking point, with record low attendance and a coach and GM about to be fired may just be the perfect shot to cement it as a national laughinstock. Instead, if Im the Redskins I tell them "next year", because its a great story line and shows the franchise in a better light be cause A. Either Gruden and Allen are fired, and its all about a new regime, a new beginning, new coach, GM etc with a lot of young talent, or B. Gruden and Allen made the playoffs, fans are starting to come back, and its dramatic to see if they can build on it.

    The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    Its amazing how all of the credit Bruce gets for turning his decade long disaster around, is for signing a guy who will never play a down for the Redskins.

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

    The problem with bringing in a guy like Foster, regardless of what hes done, isnt that he might not pan out. Because his history says hes a pretty big risk compared to your average player. The problem is ONLY bringing in Foster and thinking that solves it. In the NFL, if you have a position with only 1 good player, you likely will have a position with 0 good players by midway through the season.
  10. Yeah, I dont see the point in playing him this year. The Oline we know is injury prone and because of that suspect. Haskins is a 1 year college starter. Case Keenum has proven himself capable of being an average player at the position. Sure, maybe if Haskins had been a 4 year starter in college you could justify throwing him in in year 1, but he wasnt. Hes as inexperienced as a 1st round QB can be, so a year on the bench, learning, watching, and practicing will be more valuable than for your average rookie QB.

    The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    Umm........... We literally have had a decade to see thats true. At some point you have to believe your eyes, and your ears, and what everyone who is actually close to the situation is saying.
  12. It would be nice if Mason Foster would act like a gangster, and threaten an opposing running back for once.

    Starting QB 2019???

    So basically, Alex Smith is cut. He might be IR'd for a year, but if he doesnt retire, hes cut. Haskins and Keenum are a lock, and Gruden already hates to keep 3 QBs, meaning even McCoy is likely on the bubble with the troubles hes having recovering. For this year, the worst thing we can do is start Haskins. Keenum is more than qualified to be a stop gap for a year, and the big knock on Haskins is his poor upper body mechanics and throwing motion. The last thing we want to do is spend a year reinforcing that because we thew him in too early, instead of taking the opportunity to really coach it out of him, improve those mechanics, and set him up for great success next year. I know everyone wants to play with their shiny new toy immediately, but as long as you refuse to have patience, you continue to make sure you wont have long term success. Patience for 1-2 years leads to long term success, it just requires someone with the character to withstand the whiny fans who will demand everything now.

    2019 Comprehensive Draft Thread

    Nothing is a bigger red flag than a WR that prefers not to catch with his hands. That should be your natural instinct, if its not, thats a serious problem. So....after a decade of seeing the results of Bruce Allen. Of seeing him drive half the fanbase away, to historic lows, you think that A. because its a good draft on paper it will be a good draft in 2 years, and B. Its Bruce Allen who did it despite NEVER being able to do that before, rather than someone else in the building? Ill be honest, that doesnt seem too rational to me.

    The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    Every year Bruce Allen wins the offseason. The problem is every year his team looks good on paper, and is terrible on the football field. And only one of those counts. And for anyone that really thinks we have turned the corner in recent drafts with Kyle Smith leading it, theres nothing you can hope for more than Bruce Allen being fired. Because we all know Bruce wont tolerate competition, so he will run Smith out if hes allowed to stay.
