  1. Jordan Reed would have been a HOFer if he could have stayed healthy. Probably the most talented player we've had at an offensive skill position since I started watching the skins in the early 2000s. Probably the most talented player we've had on the team during that time other than Sean Taylor. He was simply uncoverable in 2015 - I've never seen defenders falling all over themselves trying to guard a TE. And that 2015 comeback against Tampa Bay is one of my favorite skins games - we put that last play all on him, and the defender was so scared of covering him that he basically just walked right into the endzone. He will be missed, and I wish him all the best.
  2. I would assume there are few, if any, QBs whose offenses were TD-less in their first ~12 quarters who went on to eventually become upper tier NFL passers. However, we've really got nothing to lose unless he is actively hurting the development of the rest of the team.
  3. The problem with Doctson is that he is old. Most future elite receivers in the NFL leave college when they are sophomores or juniors. Doctson spent 5 years in college. If he had left college when he was a sophomore or junior, he would have been drafted very late (or not at all). However, he stayed a long time, was able to rack up stats as a 22/23 year old against 18 year old defenders, and we took the bait. He's not going to blossom after leaving here because he's already 26. He'll be 27 by the end of this season. He's half a year older than Jamison Crowder, who has been in the NFL 2 years longer than him. He's been in his athletic prime for the last 2-3 years and will begin to slope downward in a year or two. There's not much precedent for a receiver who showed very little until he was 26 and then suddenly had a fantastic career. As for Kirk, one more factor I am looking forward to seeing is the Kubiak effect. Kubiak is a hell of an offensive mind, built a lot of his success in the Shanahan bootleg WCO style of offense that I think fits Kirk perfectly, and is now purely an offensive assistant rather than a full on head coach.
  4. I agree with Redskinss - I can't picture a future Peyton Manning sitting on the bench because there was a program in place for a future undrafted NFL practice squad member. If Haskins is a top tier NFL talent, and JT Barrett is a future undrafted practice squad member, the coach should recognize that immediately and start the better player. Seems like an extremely odd decision. I wonder if there are many 1st round NFL QBs who sat behind guys who ended up not getting drafted?
  5. As I mentioned in the other RG3 thread, he had a big decision to make this offseason and he royally messed it up. He had the choice to either go to a team where he would have a chance to start right away (Browns, Rams, 49ers type teams), or to go to a team where he could become the heir apparent to a currently good QB on the brink of retirement (Saints, Cardinals type teams). In my opinion, going to a team that needed a starter immediately was risky for two reasons: (1) there was a good chance that he would not even win the starting job in the preseason, which would essentially kill his reputation, and (2) even if he did win the starting job, it would just accelerate the moment when everyone would see that the emperor has no clothes. He would have been better off sitting on the bench for a year or two, where he could continue to benefit from the reputation built on his 2012 season without ever having to expose his poor play in games that mattered. I predicted that he would get beat out by McCown for the starting job in Cleveland, which was wrong. In my defense, he has turned out to be the worst of Cleveland's 3 QBs by a pretty wide margin - in his 2 games as a starter, he has posted an abysmal 2.72 ANY/A, compared to McCown's terrible 4.50 and Kessler's not-all-that-bad 6.0. If Griffin had started all 16 games this season, throwing 25 attempts and achieving just 2.72 ANY/A, he would be the first QB in NFL history to post such abysmal numbers (granted, that's a lot of "if"s, and lasting 16 games while posting such awful stats would be quite an accomplishment). Griffin will likely stick around the league for at least a few more years, following in the footsteps of Blaine Gabbert and Jimmy Clausen. If he wants to save his career, he should seek a team with a good front office where he can be kept on the bench for 2-3 seasons (working with a private QB coach every day after practice and every day of the offseason) and pray for a late career resurgence (which is an extreme long shot).
  6. Honestly I don't think the interception was a bad throw. I have no idea what the tight end was thinking - you have to bend your route toward the middle of the field once you clear the LB, otherwise the QB has no hope of getting you the ball. Also I confess that I'm a little bitter that Barnidge made the Pro Bowl over Jordan Reed - cmon, that's gotta be a joke. The real cause for concern with RG3's performance, IMO, was the fumble. RG3 is a fumble machine. And you'd expect that from a guy who gets sacked a ton like he does. But the unforced errors like botched snaps and botched fumbles (the latter of which seemed to magically disappear last year) just make things that much worse.
  7. I'm proud of RG3. Going 4/8 for 67 yards, 0 TDs, 1 INT, and 1 fumble was arguably his best preseason performance since 2012, capping it off with his team taking a 2 point lead on the interception he threw. He's really coming back strong. It's an unconventional way to score points but I admire Griffin's desire to put points on the board no matter what it does to his own personal stat sheet. In the preseason since 2012, Griffin has thrown 3 INTs, fumbled 5 times, and scored 0 TDs. He is averaging fewer than 1.6 adjusted net yards per attempt since 2012, and if we were to penalize fumbles at the same rate as INTs, his career ANY/A in preseason would actually be negative. Among QBs who were penciled in as their team's day 1 starter, RG3 could potentially have the worst preseason stat line in NFL history. I haven't done the research, but I can't imagine there are many guys out there who were crowned as day 1 starters on 5 separate occasions whose career preseason stat line is worse than this: 43/72 (59%) for 445 yards (6.2 y/a), 2 TDs, 3 INTs, 10 sacks, and 7 fumbles.
  8. The following trademarks are currently in force, per the Trademark Electronic Search System at tmsearch.uspto.gov: - figgas over niggas - sluts - the jew claw - authentic redneck I was going to write a warning at the beginning of my post to warn people that they might see some offensive language, but clearly these highly regarded names have already passed the scrutiny of the trademark office so they are squeeky clean.
