    2020 Schedule Leaks/Prediction Thread

    Agree, it's been a team that didn't just win but also its been a really boring team and the lack of star power had much to do with that. If I recall the year post 2012 RG3, we got 5 prime time games. I've mentioned before when an NFL show said that they got some feedback from viewers who told them they focus too much on certain teams, so one of their panelists in response laughed and suggested they can talk about the Titans and the Redskins and implied but then who will watch? The good news is I think Chase Young changes the narrative of the star power drill. And Rivera over time turns the tide. Not sure it happens though this season. Will see. https://www.washingtonpost.com/sports/2020/05/07/redskins-2020-schedule-is-out-team-is-left-off-prime-time-slate/?utm_campaign=wp_redskins&utm_medium=social&utm_source=twitter For the first time since the strike-shortened season of 1982, the NFL did not schedule the Washington Redskins in prime time. The team will play in Dallas on Thanksgiving afternoon, a classic rivalry game against the Cowboys, but the Redskins do not have a game slated for a Thursday, Sunday or Monday night. In fact, 13 of the Redskins’ 16 games are planned for Sundays at 1 p.m. The NFL’s schedule released Thursday night restored some rigor to a sports calendar on hold because of the novel coronavirus pandemic. Despite Washington’s absence from high-profile games under the lights, there were dates to write down, maybe even look forward to, if Coach Ron Rivera can bring to life his optimistic timeline for a Redskins resurgence.

    Welcome to the NFL Dwayne Haskins QB Ohio State

    I'd take our RBs over theirs too. But I wouldn't take our WR crop or TE crop over theirs. And my main point was they ramped up their offense more than we did this off season. I am not going out on a limb on the point, the point is borderline cliche, I was listening to a PFF dude among others just gush and gush about what Denver did for Lock during the off season. We did decent for Haskins on that front but nothing major IMO. Receiver corp is better. The O line is arguably weaker. TE is IMO about a wash. RB was already good, it still is. I am fine with their off season so that's not a criticism of it -- just saying Denver amped it further.

    Welcome to the NFL Dwayne Haskins QB Ohio State

    I like Sims and it was part of the reason why in the draft thread I shot down the idea of drafting dudes like KJ Hill who looked to me to be pure slot WRs. I highlighted TE and the left side of the O line as my concerns not WR. I've played up some of the same players you have including today on this same thread. Guice, McLaurin, Gibson were among my guys before we even drafted them. So if you think we are disagreeing, I'd forget the WRs and RBs because its not on point as for any disagreement. I like the same guys on that front. Looks like our disagreement is the O line, you say its decent, I saw its a wildcard. The LT isn't just any position on the O line, it's the key one. LG is a wildcard, too IMO. Fant looked good his first season. then they add Lock's old TE in Albert O on top of that? I wasn't as high on Albert O as some but the dude is really fast for his size, as is Fant. Then you add Jeudy and Hamler to Sutton who is a pro bowler. And you add M. Gordon to an already pretty good RB group. That's quite the juiced up unit. https://www.milehighreport.com/2020/4/26/21236607/denver-broncos-drew-lock-2020-nfl-draft-weapons After this draft, Denver might out-speed even the Chiefs. The joke on ESPN was the Broncos are “building a track squad.” This offense should be fun to watch.

    Be wild again if D-Jax like last year plays and smokes us, then is lost for most of the rest of the season. The odd thing about D. Jax is that he's been a big factor or at least so it seems based on my memory for either team when he's played in this series. But who knows if he even makes their squad considering all the fast receivers they just drafted.

    Welcome to the NFL Dwayne Haskins QB Ohio State

    Yeah Arizona is another great example. I was a big Gibson guy on the draft thread, Gandy-Golden i liked but not loved but the more I dive in on him the more I like him. I was probably Guice's biggest cheerleader before that draft, and one of the bigger McLaurin guys, too. So I like a lot of our pieces. But the left side of the line is such a wildcard and ditto TE that it's hard for to buy in fully. They need to catch some breaks -- Charles develops fast and stays out of trouble, Guice stays healthy, one of the TE's emerge, etc. Me, too. It wouldn't be a good start for the culture. But imagine emerging from this draft with someone like Sewell or Chase. Another step back might be losing a battle to help win the war. I am obviously going to root for wins but it also seems almost like a no lose season because I see this as a bridge year to 2021 anyway. Their secondary if I recall was the 2nd worst in the NFL the season before. But as for talent, yeah I don't think we have a corner on par with Sherman or a FS on par with Ward.

    Welcome to the NFL Dwayne Haskins QB Ohio State

    Yeah agree. It feels like everything is setting up not for 2020 but for 2021. Cap room. More time to build the culture. Round out the roster. Young guys gain experience with the system. And possibly one more high draft pick.

    Welcome to the NFL Dwayne Haskins QB Ohio State

    I wish we did for Haskins what Denver did for Lock this year. Talk about upgrading weapons. As for here, I like Gibson a lot and Gandy-Golden. So our weapons potentially could be good. But we got at least in theory no legitimate TE. LG is up in the air. I like Charles at LT but he's a rookie and we aren't sure yet with his past problems that he's the answer. You converge all of that with a weird off season where you can't practice a new system with young players. It might be a challenge. I think the defense will be significantly better with the obvious concern about the secondary. Hopefully the pass rush like it did for SF improves the back end.

    Welcome to the NFL Dwayne Haskins QB Ohio State

    I agree but I didn't say it that way. I didn't use the word elite and if my posts suggests the word than my bad as to mis-communicating. Some seem sold as him likely being the goods. Some seem convinced he is headed to be a bust. I have a pretty good memory of both points being made because I've argued with people on both sides of it on occasion. And it was just my perspective that it's hard for me to land hard one way or another. And it's not that i don't think anyone can't be high or down on Haskins. Obviously, everyone can have their take and be sold on their position. It would be boring if we all saw it the same way. I've taken some strong positions on just about every QB we've had ultimately and had my share of rows about them more so than any topic. With Haskins, I am just back and forth, and waiting for it to unfold. I lean positive but its a soft lean. I think there are some people on this thread with much stronger leanings than mine on both sides of the debate. I am just explaining mine and recalling some of the other QB threads and how heated they were and I don't find this thread that unique considering. I think it comes with the turf -- Redskins -- Qb -- angst. And I've partaken in my share of it so it's tough for me to forget.

    Welcome to the NFL Dwayne Haskins QB Ohio State

    I agree that IMO some are jumping the gun one way or another. My hard position on Haskins is it's borderline impossible to tell, yet. There are things I like and things I don't. Hard for me to say he's a franchise QB for sure or that he isn't. I'd lean slightly positive on him. My ride on Haskins so far is almost identical to early years Kirk. Up and down, depending on the week. I waffled a lot on Kirk until in my mind he established himself and after that I mostly had his back and took my share of heat from his critics, then. I recall all our QB threads well. There was a lot of angst about most of our young QBs. RG3 was the exception because he started so hot but then the heat and criticism came later. Heck I recall how heated the Beck versus Rex thread was. Campbell became a heated subject. Kirk's thread was mega heated pretty much for the whole duration. Heck so was even the Alex thread at times. If I had to hazard a guess I'd say more feelings have been bruised on the QB threads than any other topic here. And I think much of it because we've been so battered by bad luck and false hope at the position that there is some natural reflex cynicism about each young QB. Haskins is somewhat inheriting all of that baggage. He seems like an astute guy who knows this team's history, and I'd guess he's aware of that. i think the two franchises that could easily do an entertaining 30 for 30 special on the QB position would be this team and the Browns. The wild thing about the Browns is they thought they escaped the wilderness in 2018 with Mayfield but the dude regressed. So IMO us and the Browns fans probably feel the most snakebitten and by extension cynical about the QB position in the NFL.

    Welcome to the NFL Dwayne Haskins QB Ohio State

    He comes off to me both in interviews and small doses of seeing him up close as a super nice guy. He is supposedly well liked in the locker room and is humble and coachable, etc. There seems to be some concerns about how hungry he is to be the best but on that front he seems to be fired up and showing that he is indeed hungry this off season. So hopefully it all comes together for him. My main concern right now is learning a new offense without being about to practice it -- talk about an insane and unprecedented challenge. I lean optimistic about Haskins. But lean pessimistic about the offense as a whole coming together considering these off season challenges. Teams with veterans who are carrying on the same system for years should have tremendous advantages. I think the Giants drill is real simple. He grew up a big time fan of the team. He did camps with Giant players, etc, growing up. So he's sort of like the reverse Landon Collins. Collins wanted to be drafted by the Redskins, his boyhood favorite team, yet the Giants took him. I can't blame him or any player for who they grew up rooting for especially when it's the hometown team which is was for him growing up mostly in NJ.

    2021 Comprehensive Draft Thread

    I've watched a lot of DeVonta Smith, I think he needs to put on like 15 pounds but if he does I think he will be a beast in the NFL. Chase is insanely good. I also love Ross. I watched a little Wallace last year when I thought he'd come out. I liked him as a deep threat. I agree Waddle has a lot of potential. He will perhaps be their new version of Ruggs. He has some serious wheels. Most of the others you mentioned I haven't watched. So I got a long way to go.

    2021 Comprehensive Draft Thread

    PFF Mock 1. JACKSONVILLE JAGUARS — QB TREVOR LAWRENCE, CLEMSON I know everyone is saying that Justin Fields made up ground on Lawrence last season, but something drastic would have to change for Lawrence not to be the No. 1 pick. He’s earned grades of 90.7 and 91.0 in his first two seasons and has elite physical tools for the position. 2. WASHINGTON REDSKINS — QB JUSTIN FIELDS, OHIO STATE Fields started last season like a house on fire but showed some flaws as the season wore on. Still, his performance was every bit elite as he earned a 91.5 overall grade. He is accurate at all levels of the field and is a legit threat with his legs. 3. CINCINNATI BENGALS — OT PENEI SEWELL, OREGON The use of the term “generational” has gotten out of control. That being said, Sewell is still a generational tackle prospect. He’ll likely be the best offensive tackle prospect since at least Jake Long, if not Orlando Pace. He already dominated college football with an FBS-high 95.8 overall grade as a true sophomore — his blend of power, technique and athleticism is scary. 4. MIAMI DOLPHINS — EDGE GREG ROUSSEAU, MIAMI (FL) Rousseau has almost comical physical tools — it’s as if someone built the ideal edge defender body and then said “more.” He’s listed at 6-foot-7 and 253 pounds with long arms, and he racked up 16 sacks as a redshirt freshman last season. The Miami defensive end still has a ways to go technically, though, as his 76.2 overall grade didn’t quite match that sack total. 5. CAROLINA PANTHERS — LB MICAH PARSONS, PENN STATE Parsons is already elite when it comes to making actual linebacker reads, which is an ability that many scouts worried about when it came to Isaiah Simmons’ evaluation. Parsons led the nation with a 94.8 run-defense grade as a sophomore. To play like a grown man at his age is special. 6. NEW YORK JETS — WR JA’MARR CHASE, LSU Speaking of grown men, Chase looked more like a redshirt senior than a true sophomore last year with the way he physically overpowered cornerbacks in the SEC. His 24 deep catches were eight more than the next closest receiver in the country. 7. NEW YORK GIANTS — EDGE XAVIER THOMAS, CLEMSON We were expecting big things from Thomas heading into his sophomore year, but they never quite came to fruition. After racking up 26 pressures on 150 pass-rushing snaps as a freshman, Thomas had the exact same amount on 96 more pass-rushes as a sophomore. That talent he showed as a freshman didn’t disappear, though. 8. DETROIT LIONS — WR RONDALE MOORE, PURDUE In another loaded receiver class, Moore is the single most electric player of the bunch. As a true freshman in 2018, he led the entire country with 37 broken tackles. He had 367 yards through the first three games of last season before going down with a knee injury. With everyone looking for the next Tyreek Hill in the 2020 NFL Draft, Moore is the closest thing I saw in college football last year. 9. LAS VEGAS RAIDERS — DI MARVIN WILSON, FSU Wilson was on pace for a monster junior campaign before breaking his hand against Miami and going down for the year. He could have been a fringe first-rounder had he declared, but he returned in hopes of a Derrick Brown-esque stock increase. Wilson earned a 90.9 pass-rushing grade on the season and looks like a complete modern nose tackle. 10. MIAMI DOLPHINS — TE KYLE PITTS, FLORIDA Pitts is more of a jumbo wide receiver than actual tight end, at 6-foot-6 and 240 pounds. I’d be scared if that’s what he checks in at during the combine, but that’s what he was listed at last season when he was only 18 (!) years of age to start the year. He moves unlike any other tight end in the country and led the Gators with 649 receiving yards last year. https://www.pff.com/news/draft-2021-nfl-mock-draft-jaguars-select-trevor-lawrence-redskins-justin-fields

    2021 Comprehensive Draft Thread

    College Football: Oregon offensive tackle Penei Sewell is one of the best tackle prospects we have ever seen OW SEWELL PROJECTS AS A PASS-PROTECTOR This, while being the weaker part of Sewell’s game, is still pretty excellent. When looking at a pass-protector at the college level, we apply some of the principles of the “true pass sets” work I published here, adding in a little more context with respect to whom a player played against and when he played against him. When adjusting for situation, Sewell won his pass-blocking reps at a rate of 3.4 percentage points higher than the average college football player and surrendered pressure at a rate 2.8 percentage points lower. His comps in the context-free environment in pass protection are players like David Bakhtiari, Jack Conklin, Cordy Glenn, Tyron Smith, Trent Brown and Trent Williams. Projected pass-blocking win rate and pressure rate allowed for Penei Sewell in the context-free environment. Vertical, dashed lines are the league medians for tackles in their first five NFL seasons. If Sewell gets into an offense that helps him out — by rolling out the quarterback, throwing quickly, etc. — he projects even better, which would make for one of the most “sure thing” draft picks in quite some time. HOW SEWELL PROJECTS AS A RUN-BLOCKER As good as Sewell is in pass protection, he’s absolutely insane as a run-blocker. After adjusting for context, Sewell has earned a win in the run game at a rate that is 12.5 percentage points higher than average, which is the highest in his position group since we started charting college football in 2014. His loss rate is below average by almost two percentage points, as well. When looking at his projections in the run game, his comps statistically are San Francisco 49ers‘ high draft pick and starting right tackle Mike McGlinchey, former top pick (and decent NFL run-blocker) Luke Joeckel, Chicago Bears starting left tackle Charles Leno Jr. and Kansas City Chiefs starting left tackle and former No. 1 overall pick Eric Fisher. https://www.pff.com/news/college-football-oregon-offensive-tackle-penei-sewell-is-one-of-the-best-tackle-prospects-we-have-ever-seen

    Good point, it could be Fields and Lance going top 3. NFL Network draft analyst Bucky Brooks, former NFL scout: “Trey Lance could emerge as a contender for the No. 1 spot due to his combination of athleticism, poise and playmaking ability. He reminds me a lot of Deshaun Watson with ...his style of play. He can carve you up from the pocket or use his legs to create plays on the perimeter. He takes good care of the ball. Most important, he wins. With NDSU producing pros at the position, scouts are going to take him seriously as a prospect, and the NFL’s shift towards more athletic playmakers at the position could help him climb the charts.” A veteran NFL scout: “From what I’ve seen thus far, he seems a notch above these other guys. You turn on the tape and he makes some unbelievable throws.” NFL Network analyst Daniel Jeremiah, former scout: “You talk to scouts and he gets people excited. He has plenty of arm. He has the ability to run around and make plays under control. And he’s playing at a place that just produced Carson Wentz and Easton Stick. They’ve proven that they can get these guys ready to go.” An NFL scout: “I watched their national title game and didn’t see him throw much, but then I watched more of their games. He is a talent.” Dane Brugler, NFL Draft analyst, The Athletic: “He absolutely has first-round potential. The only reason I wouldn’t put him in the Burrow/Trubisky bucket is because I think he’s already a potential first-rounder. When I was chatting with scouts on who should I include in my 2021 mock, Lance was mentioned multiple times as a guy who isn’t quite there yet but well on his way.” Barton Simmons, director of scouting, 247Sports: “It feels like things are gaining steam quickly for Lance. When you consider that he played multiple sports, started on both sides of the ball and wasn’t a high volume passer in high school, it’s pretty compelling to look at the launching point last fall as a redshirt freshman and then imagine where he’s heading. The tools are all there. How good will he be with expectations now that everyone knows his name? If he dominates again, there’s going to be a lot more answers than questions.” Matthew Richner, draft analyst/consultant: “Lance is the wild card. His numbers from last season are just remarkable, with zero INTs, only sacked 12 times last season. He has the size and speed to make guys miss, along with the accuracy to put the ball on target. He finished with an 11.7 AY/A (Adjusted Yards Per Attempt on 3rd Down), the highest of any player on this list last season. Carson Wentz has shown players from this program can be successful, so it wouldn’t surprise me to see Lance in that discussion next year as a first-rounder. If he can maintain or improve upon his numbers then there is no denying the fact that he will be a first-round pick.” An NFL assistant coach: “I saw him in their title game and was impressed. Twenty-eight touchdown passes and zero picks is unbelievable, and there is definitely some luck in that because you’re bound to get a ball tipped, but still to do that first year starting, that’s really unbelievable. I don’t know if he’s dynamic enough as a runner or passer to dominate in the NFL. From what I saw, I didn’t see that much horsepower in his arm, but obviously we need to see a lot more. I like him right now but am not in love with him.” https://thedraftnetwork.com/search?q=lance

    If we pick 3rd, am guessing we lose out on Sewell. Right now I am presuming the first 2 picks are already a lock in that draft. I got to watch Chase. I've seen him play a lot in real time during the seasons and noticed him when I was watching other LSU players and in that context, the dude struck me as a rock star level WR. But I haven't really studied him, yet. From what i've seen without studying him, he struck me as perhaps the slam dunk third best player but since he's a receiver I doubt he goes that high, Fields and a few others might surpass him.
  20. That's was Galdi's point too with him having a bit fun with it. But from the interviews I've watched of Del Rio in the past, I think he was genuine, he comes off super classy and has stressed that treating people well is a big thing for him. I agree it brings more attention to it but I think much of the fan base especially on twitter was already inclined to bash Manusky so it was already on their radar so attempting to shut it down has some value.
  21. I recall Del Rio saying part of why he wanted to coach with Rivera is he's a good person and treats people right and he strives to do the same. Classy tweet there from Del Rio. IMO part of a culture change is to win and do things in a classy way. Like the 1980 Redskins.
