    2019 Comprehensive Draft Thread

    Ratings were down the WHOLE season, not just during mid=season when the injuries started to pile up. Ratings as a whole have been in a downward spiral the last few seasons, which was accelerated big-time this year. We're the worst offensive team in the NFL, and we have absolutely NO stars on the offensive side. Trading for mediocre Alex Smith, who is the defiiniton of "meh", was still a bizarre move. They should've drafted a QB last year, instead of trading for Smith. If they had done that, they might've been able to dent some of the lost fan interest & ticket sales. This was a terrible move in keeping the status quo, and not moving forward. I really think the Skins have learned their lesson this time, and they will try to draft a QB tomorrow night. There's still a chance they trade for Rosen (which I think is actually the better move), but the Skins are in a position where they are completely irrelevant on the national stage, and they're an after thought in the most prestigious, publicized division in football. Dan Snyder has to change that perspective quickly, before more fans bleed out of the fanbase.

    Starting QB 2019???

    They need to address QB at either #15, or by trading for Rosen. Snyder is probably going this route, because the STH base is dwindling by the hour, and fan interest is at an all time low for this team (which says something, considering what we've been through with Vinny, Zorn, and the RGIII drama). He needs to do something to not only get STH back, but to drive merchandising sales back to acceptable levels for an NFL franchise. Drafting a QB fits this bill, since rookie QB's represent hope, and anticipation. I predict we draft Haskins, or trade for Rosen. It's inevitable, because the other option of rolling with Case Keenum or Colt McCoy for next year, is not a financially viable option for Snyder & Co.
  3. We deserve it though. We are maybe the least talented offense in the league, and a team devoid of name brand stars. We’re also a highly dysfunctional team, so until we prove ourselves, and can string together good seasons, we’ll always be one of the least trusted/respected teams in the league.
  4. Looks like only two primetime games for us (Chi, @MIN). The rest of the schedule is 1PM starts. It makes sense, because we're not going out west this year farther than Minnesota, and we're projected to be one of the worst teams in the league. If you're a fan of 1PM starts, this is the season for you, with 14 of our 16 games currently scheduled to take place at the 1PM window.
  5. I just saw a Bears schedule leak with dates & times, and they have Chicago coming to Fed-Ex Week 3 to play the Skins on MNF. This is the first confirmed prime time game for the Skins.
  6. That schedule is fake. It’s already been confirmed earlier that PIT/NE is the opening SNF game. DAL/NE is confirmed for Week 12, NOT 14, and DAL/NO is the Week 4 SNF game. We don’t know yet if DAL/NE is a SNF game, since people are speculating it could be a 4:25 FOX DH game.

    Starting QB 2019???

    Yes, definitely. He started last year, and if they're serious about winning, they would announce Rosen as he starter prior to camp. Not to slight Keenum, but everyone knows that he's here as insurance once we get Rosen. The odd man out might be McCoy. Jay hates carrying 3 QB's, so Colt might find himself cut. You don't get Rosen to then have him sit behind Keenum. Rosen will easily win the QB battle at camp.
  8. I’m going to the game Tuesday night. This should be a real treat. Can’t wait .

    LOL, this is insane. Reed at this point isn’t worth more than a ham sandwich, and a side of fries. We’d be lucky to get a 5th or a 6th rounder back for him. He’s finished.
  10. Why would you want him back? He was really not good AT ALL in the 9 games he played with us. His only good game was against the Packers, and even that was more like a great first half than a good game. I hope he recovers, and is able to live a healthy life after football, but let's be real here, it was a BIG mistake trading for him. We're screwed in the interim because of his cap number, and that we traded away an emerging young DB.
  11. A couple of points here: 1. He’s already over 30, and he has probably played his best football already. He’s only going to decline as a 31 year old. 2. He was a malcontent, playing for one of the most respected and elite teams in football, with a great owner, smart front office and an above average coach. If he was a malcontent there, what do you think would’ve happened here, where we have the WORST owner in football (maybe in all of professional sports), the worst GM in football (again maybe the worst GM in all of professional sports) and a coach whose even more player friendly than Mike Tomlin? 3. He had issues with a top 5 QB, and most likely a future hall of fame player in Big Ben, who made it his mission to target AB during games (he’ the most targeted receiver in the game the last three years). We don’t have a competent QB on our roster currently, and we have one of the worst offensive units in football skill level wise. What do you think is gonna happen when the balls coming AB’s way get picked off, or are incomplete? We were never going to get AB, and he would’ve turned us down like he did Buffalo, because we’re one of the worst teams in football.

    Gameday Thread

    I’m a big Tom Brady fan, but he flat out sucked last night. He was one step above game manager status. You can tell now that Brady is on a downward trend, he basically had ZERO zip on the ball, and should’v been picked at least 3 times. No matter what he says about playing until he’s 45, he’s just about finished now. I think next year will be the last year of the dynasty. The Pats will most likely get to the Super Bowl again (unless the Chiefs improve their defense). If the Pats win next year, they will have 7 championships, and stand alone in NFL lore. Once they get 7, I think Brady retires, and Belichick starts anew with a rookie QB.

    They almost certainly have to go QB in either R1, or at the very worst R2. The Redskins put themselves in this position in the first place. You have a coach who is virtually a dead man walking next season, and you have fans that won't renew season tickets by the hundreds, if not thousands. They almost have no choice BUT to draft a QB. They should've drafted one last season, instead of drafting Alex Smith. That move set them back years. I would imagine that the Skins have dozens of scouts at the Senior Bowl today, with an eye on the QB's on display. I think they'll pick either Lock, or Jones with the 15th pick. Worst case scenario is them drafting back in the 1st, and nabbing Will Grier. The Redskins FO is the dumbest FO in sports, but even they recognize the need to draft a franchise QB. A franchise QB brings excitement and hope to an already eroding fan base. There is also a pretty good chance that that QB will play next year when our starter (McCoy) gets injured.
