    Welcome To The Redskins: Ron Rivera, Head Coach

    Pannino, you basically have described a great Washington Coach, Joe Gibbs a mentor and a motivator of men. What I mean , there is a similarity between the two coaches . Hopefully Rivera can replicate a winning culture. I know placing Rivera on the same pedestal as Gibbs may seem a bit unfair to the point of being a heretic in regards to Redskin lore. Have to admit there is a lot of similarities between the two men.

    Welcome To The Redskins: Ron Rivera, Head Coach

    Man, the minute I heard the report of Ron Rivera was let go by Carolina. I turned to a colleague at work, and said the "Skins need to hire Rivera now" I am ecstatic Snyder did the right thing . Please Dan just be a owner and let Rivera do his job. Also, while the front office is in need of a re boot. Snyder needs to bring in football savvy people and let them run with the ball. Snyder could capture Jack Kent Cook status , if he would let this happen, Snyder should or could hire the right folks and sit back and relish the organization he has finally put together. I know this reads as a fantasy in some respects, but maybe, just maybe Snyder has had a epiphany . Hail

    Who was the worse GM? Vinnie or Bruce?

    Looking at the stats for both Snyder GM's the results are about the same. For Vinnie the 100 million debacle for Psycho Haynesworth, and for Bruce, the operation of the Skins front office and the undermining of office personnel like S. McCloughan and going cheap on free agents. Other than that its pretty much a wash on who is or was the worse GM

    Is this the worst Redskins team in the last 20 years?

    Sorry to say yes. This franchise has been ok, with hanging on by their finger tips with 9/7 or 7/9 records the last few years. We as skin fans are basically witnessing the bottom falling out of this franchise. I am sad for the younger Redskin fans if there is any left,to witness the demise of this franchise and not experience the past glory years of the Washington Redskins. We as Redskin fans are and have witnessed a mockery and a Sham of a Franchise for many years. The ineptness and dare to say at the very least the mismanagement of this franchise goes well beyond the coaches and players . This debacle ways heavily on the shoulders of Dan Snyder and Bruce Allen. Dan if you are truly Redskin fan either Lead , Follow or get the Hell out of the Way. Bruce Allen, you are a disgrace and a joke. Hail
  5. God bless you Sony. I am recounting my memories of a young boy at 10 years old watching you slinging the ball down the field at old RFK stadium. Thanks for those memories Sony. Enjoy retirement. Hail
  6. Alex Smith is a true warrior. I have to admit I was doubtful about Alex returning to play professional football. The man has the will and the desire to suit up and play. Alex Smith still has a long road in front of him. As a Redskin fan , if and I say IF , Alex can make a push to be a starter. this situation would put the Skins in a interesting situation. If Alex can re establish his presence on the field, would the Skins coaching staff open the field of competition between the quarterback group?. I know Alex is a little long in tooth, but I would prefer for Smith to mentor Haskins..I know Snyder would prefer to start Haskins and show off the future QB . But the Skins still owe Smith a ton of money and if Smith can still lead the offense down the field and mentor Haskins at the same time this would pay large dividens I Know my statement refers to a lot of IF,s, and unknown scenarios, but if Smith is healthy and a viable option why not let Haskins sit and learn.

    !!!!0mgz!!!! Trent Williams finally showed up

    To me Williams is going for a money grab, Williams is long in the tooth in age and a constant participant on the Lame and Lazy list. Yes , Williams has been a main stay for the Skins franchise for years and a damn good all pro tackle. I think Williams is anticipating a short window of playing time, due to injury and a toll on his ability to play a 16 game schedule is telling. Plus, a Skin fan would have to wonder. Does Williams concede he can not handle a practice routine, plus a 16 game schedule, and recover from surgery for a tumor? is Williams using the surgery and his tenure with the team as a bargaining chip for a extension? I think he is. As Skin fans we have to face facts and accept the offense is in a re build, and the Skins have to look to some young bloods to complete the youth movement. I admit letting Williams walk will diminish the effectiveness of the o line. is there a replacement for Williams on the roster as I speak ? No there is not. The Skins will have to take a couple of punches to the chin and a few bloody noses this season if Williams walks. The Skins need to call Williams on his threat and stand pat and insist Williams honors his contract. Hail
  8. I stand corrected. At the same time why is sighing Shreff such a major topic of discussion. I understand the importance of keeping our own, and at the same time are the Skins trying to gauge his interest in staying and how is Schreff responding to rehab on his injury . I would think the health of our O line has a lot to do with our win / loss record for this 2019/2020 season. Hail
  9. Did not vote, to many unanswered questions . O line questionable to say the least, when are the Skins going to sign Brandon Scherff? Haskins should just sit and learn. Proven fact, Rookies who sit for a year are better prepared to take the reins of the offense, ala, Farve / Rodgers or Alex Smith / Patrick Mahones. Plus we have a question at Safety. Plus what about wide receivers, unproven group. Will Derrius Guice, Adrian Peterson, and maybe Bryce Love answer the bell at running back? I know, we have some very young but very good talent and some great vets , I just hope the Skins coaching staff can put it together. Hail

    Ye Auld 2019 Free Agency Tracker

    If the Skins fail to achieve under Gruden for the 2019 season, and Gruden is let go .What are the chances Snyder turns to Urban Meyer as head coach ? Obviously, Meyer is well acquainted with Haskins and Mclaurin from The Ohio state and the Skins are infusing youth in to the roster. I am not a Urban Meyer fan to say the least and Meyer will probably not coach a collegian football team ever again. But Myer has football coaching in his blood and the next step would be the Pros. I am playing the Devils advocate in this query. Hail

    Ok 1st round is over. At least the Skins did not do a RG3 trade. Who do the Skins go after in the 2nd round?
