    I don't believe this.  Certainly not an expert here but seems to be a simple solution to a quickly growing problem.  Just saw someone from the NIH saying it's going to take awhile before a vaccine is created.

    The remaining two drugs showing efficacy are anti-malaria drug chloroquine and Gilead’s experimental drug remdesivir.

    We're not talking vaccine here of course but just a drug that helps to fight this virus, and it is effective.


    Coronavirus: Common Treatment for Malaria Shows Signs of Effectiveness

    The results obtained so far on more than 100 patients have shown that chloroquine phosphate was more effective than the treatment received by the comparison group in containing the progression of pneumonia, in improving the state of the lungs, in the patient becomes negative again for the virus and to shorten the duration of the disease ", specify the Chinese researchers.

    The short study does not, however, quantify this difference in effectiveness.

    "The antiviral and anti-inflammatory capacities of chloroquine could play a role in its potential effectiveness in treating patients suffering from pneumonia caused by Covid-19", continues the article on the study carried out by professors Jianjun Gao, Zhenxue Tian and Xu Yang, from Qingdao University and Qingdao Hospital.

    lol that's painting with a broad brush.  We traded assets for McNabb and Smith, both toward the end of their effective time in their careers, and mortgaged a draft for RG3. 


    We took Haskins at 15.  


    Still not seeing the common 'mistake' made by Snyder. 

    My point was as long as he's picking our QBs we're screwed. Our friend from Wales is still pissed off by the McNabb trade so I suggested him to let it go since there is absolutely no sign he's going to change (Haskins). Sorry I don't get your point with the McNabb ans Smith trades.

    Nothing less than Pat Mahomes plus this years and next years first round picks from the Chiefs.  It's about time we fleeced Andy Reid in a trade, I am still sore about McNabb!

    Sorry but as long as our fantasy football owner is at the helm it's going to be wash, rince, repeat mode (McNabb, RG3, Haskins, Smith). I understand the feeling but let it go it ain't worth the headache ;). Let's focus on Saturday's game at Millenium stadium. :)

    I hope this new regime figures out a way to not get sucked into the Snyder stupidity.

    Sorry, there is no chance that will happen as long as he is the owner imo.

    After a couple of decades of Dunning-Krugerism, his ego doesn't want to learn and he can't restrain himself from meddling.

    "Before Haskins was selected, ESPN reported that Washington’s coaching staff preferred a more experienced college player — such as Duke’s Daniel Jones, who was selected sixth by the New York Giants — only to be overruled by owner Daniel Snyder.

    A person with knowledge of Gruden’s thinking confirmed that the head coach did not want Haskins. And while Haskins has publicly downplayed any suggestion that he wasn’t Gruden’s choice, a person close to the rookie quarterback said that Haskins has sensed that to be the case." Link

    Now which bady would you take to the Redskins' game?

    dolphinsb_logo.gif Miami Dolphins: Tua Tagovailoa, QB, Alabama  Alabama_logo.gif

    From talking to people in Miami, I've come to the conclusion that it makes far more sense for the Redskins to trade down than the Lions. Sure, they lose out on Chase Young, but picking Young was problematic anyway because that means they'll have four first-round picks on the defensive line, which would make re-signing everyone impossible. We saw this a couple of years ago when the Browns passed on Bradley Chubb in favor of Denzel Ward for the same reason. Young is a better prospect, but if the Redskins can trade down, I think they'd do it. Also, the Dolphins moving up to No. 3 would be nonsensical because another team can just leap over them up to No. 2.

    I believe Tua Tagovailoa will be a top-three pick. The demand for quarterbacks is too high. The Dolphins, Chargers, Panthers and perhaps even the Buccaneers, Jaguars and Colts are teams that could be interested in moving up for the Alabama prospect. Tagovailoa, of course, suffered a serious injury this past season, but he will reportedly throw before the NFL Draft, which is huge. It sounds as though Tagovaila's injury wasn't as bad as it was initially suspected to be, which is great news. It'll also mean that some team will be more eager to trade up for him, so I expect either the Redskins or Lions to move down.

    The Dolphins are currently slotted ahead of all the other teams I mentioned above, but they seem to love Tagovailoa, so they could trade up to make sure that another team doesn't leap over them.


    The deal is ridiculous a 1st and a second to move up from 5th to 2nd to get your franchise QB.

     If Detroit wants Tua what do they do with Bradford's contract? Believe he has 3 years left. Does Miami want Tua or the other QB? 

    We need a biding war, it takes two to tango, and maybe another team hiding its intentions like KC did when they selected Mahomes.

    if Tua and Herbert have an impressive combine things can get really interesting.

    Excuse me, Mr king, were the Rams able to "remake their franchise" with their haul of picks they received from the Redskins?  No, not even close?  Ok then, we will take chase young, thanks for your concern, now get back to your biases and agendas.

    Our scouts are much better than Fisher's scouts.

    So they're worried about Stafford's health issues but NOT worried about Tua's?  :ols:


    If they really want a QB maybe it's more likely they'd be in play for a trade back and then taking Herbert as opposed to trading up for Tua. 


  9. If true I hope another team will try to jump them and made us an offer. We could then force the Lions to give us at least their second (maybe more) this year to move up.

    We could still get CY and get the missing second back, or get multiple firsts and more from the Dolphins.
