  1. "Project," I suppose for lack of better word at the time. Someone who can take a year with a headset and clipboard and learn the offense and reads, and step in year 2 and take over for the next 4-10. Of course, I could be wrong and it would make for a great story, but I don't see that in Heinicke, Allen, or Montez. All of whom were undrafted free agents.
  2. He's correct. I like the move, but still looking for a 2nd/3rd round project. Montez will probably be on the Practice Squad.
  3. None of the three are the answer. It seemed evident in the Super Bowl that the 49ers don't trust Jimmy G. Allen is a back-up at best, and as well as Heinicke played vs. Tampa, there is really no book on him. Could he be the next Kurt Warner? Anything is possible. I wouldn't bet on it and would like there to be a Plan B. I love the strategy of a young A-list, Blue chip Defense, but I'd start looking for a QB in round 2 not named Mac Jones. He's had every advantage at Alabama. Washington is a team on the come and who knows if he can take his lumps. Maybe take another QB i
  4. I've lived in MA and CT my entire life, but I was 6 years old when "Goal line, I-left, tight wing, 70 Chip" happened. Diesel became my favorite player, and "3-yards and a cloud of mud" my favorite style of football, even though I didn't really know the rules of the game that well quite yet. Even more than all of that, the colors. I fell in love with the colors.
  5. I've always been of mind that after QB, football teams are best built from the lines out on both sides of the ball.
  6. I thought Rivera was granted Belichick-like control!?! What happened to The Owner stepping back, observing from his Box on game day, and collecting his money? While correlation does not precisely equal causation, I think it has played out over the last 20+ years that whatever Ownership wants, Football Ops. should do the opposite. "Summer of 'George,'" Baby!!
  7. The Madden video game franchise and fantasy leagues are probably the worst thing to happen to the NFL and the Redskins in particular in that regard (yet I personally play both...at nearly 43 years old). It's bad enough that fanatics-yet-not-experts (i.e. us) are unreasonably loyal to a set of clothing (as opposed to the people wearing it) from an early age, but when fanatics-yet-not-experts with means (i.e. Snyder) turn $200 Mil of real dollars into their own personal fantasy team of actual humans, based on Madden ratings determined by other not-football-experts (programmers and co
  8. Expecting a loss, but why are there no other votes for a tie? It's the best of all worlds.
  9. No opportunity to watch the game. When they are not on local TV, I have to use a link, and can't record the game. It was a beautiful day in Southern New England and We took the kids to a harvest fest in Cromwell CT. Then I had to finish mowing my lawn before I lost daylight. I was following the score on my phone. I thought they had the game in hand and only realized it came down to a 2-pt conversion well after the fact. Be that as it may, how can the offense not put up 20 points against the Dolphins?
  10. Watching on TV, FedEx Field sounded like Gillette Stadium after James White scored.
  11. I grew up in Massachusetts, and stayed down here when I got a job in Hartford upon graduating from UConn ('99). The Redskins are still my favorite team, but under those circumstances, it was really difficult to not get swept up in the Tom Brady Patriots. I actually started (re-)following the Patriots again when Kraft saved the team from moving to St. Louis.
  12. Rob Ryan is on staff (ILB). They look similar and neither one is any good. Just make sure you saw the correct one.
  13. The only game I've watched (parts of) live so far this season was opening night Bears/Packers. I spent the following Sunday afternoon closing the pool, so I watched most of the 'Skins/Eagles game off the DVR. When that was seemingly in hand, I moved on to Steelers/Patriots. Also off the DVR. This past weekend, My wife and celebrated 10 years by going on an overnight trip to Cape Cod. We were on a whale watch during the early games and made the drive home to Connecticut during the 4:00 time slot. I proceeded to watch the Redskins/Cowboys with my Dad off the DVR and I wat
  14. Even if they get rid of Bruce Allen, the question becomes, "Who replaces him?" I doubt Nick Caserio would be walking through that door. Even if he did, I doubt Snyder would take a Bob-Kraft-(mostly) hands-off Kraft approach.
  15. I don't see the Washington area getting a team back if they are relocated. I also don't see Snyder selling. Despite this thread's topic and the team's performance over the past 20 years, he's still making a ton of money. It's hard to imagine him getting an amount approaching FMV for the team either. Finally, a location change would probably bring with it a name and moniker change and if a franchise were to be relocated back to Washington, the chance it would be called "Redskins" hover between slim and none.
