    Next Day Thread: Redskins vs. Jaguars

    One glaring negative from me - The end of the first half. No idea why Tress didn't just punt the ball out of bounds with that little time left. Other than that, defensive line was excellent, and I thought Johnson did well enough to get the W against a good defense.
  2. The most Redskins way for it to play out is to have every team in front of us in the wild card lose....and it not matter because we get curb stomped 35-3 by the Jags. Then still alive next week, all the glimmer of hope and still alive talk resume and the same thing happens. The infighting continues, Bruce and Jay both stay, nothing changes ever and I am dead inside. Redskins Football.

    Redskins vs Jaguars Prediction Thread: 2018 Disappointment Superbowl

    Ugly game. Fournette runs all over our D. Swearinger keeps blaming everyone but himself and players for poor play. Rinse, repeat for week 16. Jags - 24 Redskins - 10

    Next Day Thread: Redskins vs. Giants II

    I've never seen a safety take worse angles to the receiver or ball carrier. My buddy is a Packers fan and tried to warn me when we made the deal, and holy crap was he right. Bad angles and bad tackling....woof. I'd like to see Dix sit and Montae play more.

    Evaluating Jay Gruden in 2018

    Agreed on the year one feel. No complete games this year other than Arizona and they have a junior varsity high school offense. Tress has been the team MVP, and the punt coverage has been a lot better this year. I think the lack of punt returns has to do with the talent returning the punt. Stroman is terrible at it, Quinn looks like he could handle it, but he just wasn't healthy enough to get a decent sample size.

    Evaluating Jay Gruden in 2018

    Jay's play calling, clock management, and decision making have all been suspect long before all the injuries. This is year five. Jay seems like a good dude, but it is time for a full rebuild and I don't have the confidence that he should be the coach to lead it.

    Terminate Manusky

    I'd like for Tomsula on the defensive side and Callahan on the offensive side to be retained from the current staff, not sure if that will happen but it is my preference. Manusky is a JAG to me, pedestrian, middle of the pack JAG.

    Redskins vs Giants Prediction Thread: The "Take Me Behind The Woodshed" Episode

    Defense has regressed. Saquan and Odell go off. Not quite Chiefs/Skins from a few years back, but close attendance wise. Giants - 30 Redskins - 16
  9. This is where I can't decide if this is the coaching staff telling the front office that their scheme can produce regardless of talent. Or if its the front office trying to scrape the bottom of the barrel and hoping it pays off. Willingly parting with talent and then not at least getting replacement level is one of the many reasons the FO in its current construction needs to be blown up.
  10. Agreed. Edge rushers have been way too inconsistent, linebackers are either slow or lack awareness, and the secondary is a mess. Interior line has provided at least some reason for optimism although getting gashed consistently with the run the last few weeks has dimmed that bright spot recently.

    The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    I'm really hoping that this will be it for Bruce. I know he will try to use the injuries as an excuse, but he should have been fired years ago. If the "GM" does go, cleaning house seems to be the most logical next step.

    Redskins vs Cowboys Prediction Thread: Time to Put Up Or Shut Up

    I'm not confident at all. We have been getting run on lately, and I don't think Zeke will be held to 30 yards rushing again like he was in the first match up. Colt did beat Dallas four years ago, but that is so irrelevant now I don't know why people keep bringing it up. I was at that game, and it was awesome, but both teams are completely different. Cowboys - 30 Redskins - 23 6-5 heading into MNF with Philly.

    Season Ticket Renewals

    Going to my last game as a season ticket holder this Sunday. Had to be bribed with field passes to go. Never had field passes before, so I thought why not? Just not worth the investment in my opinion. I can either enjoy or embrace the mediocrity of the games at home, or get tickets in my old section or better for way cheaper on the secondary market.

    The Race to Black Monday 2019: 12/30/19

    In the case of Green Bay, I absolutely think Ted Thompson gets the blame as well as Dom Capers running the defense. I personally think that Rodgers makes that team go. McCarthy's offense is pretty much let Aaron handle it. His scheme doesn't get people open, usually Rodgers going off script or putting the ball in a pin hole sized window is what moves the ball for them. I don't think he will be fired, but he doesn't necessarily come off as a good coach to me.

    The Race to Black Monday 2019: 12/30/19

    Mike McCarthy shouldn't be safe. Its been proven time and again that Aaron Rodgers masks a ton of deficiencies with that team. I guess he has the built in excuse of Rodgers being hurt, but in my opinion the QB has made him successful, not the other way around. Not sure whether or not the majority is on McCarthy or also their front office, but without Rodgers they are a disaster.
