    2019 Undrafted Free agency Thread

    We should team him up with Nico Marley and have the chillest LB core in the league

    Reuben Foster carted off on 2nd snap of OTA's

    I'm not superstitious or anything, but my wifes husband is. Would you mind not jinxing him and modify it to say that you're glad it wasn't John Mara??

    2020 Comprehensive Draft Thread

    Holsey cut yesteday.
  4. 4.5 years ago, the mods allowed me to make a few completely unrelated posts when my oldest had a great interview at VCU dental, and an elated update when she was accepted. Proud Daddy moments just make you want to bust if you can't share. I appreciate the indulgences very much. ....so with all that said, Today she became a Doctor. Carry on, just had to have my Daddy moment #proud daddy
  5. The starting LG spot may become a strength if any of the 2 between Martin and Flowers pan out. I love the Martin pick and he's my frontrunner, but Flowers is still young, big, and also has a little mean in him. I see him as primarily the backup swing T, but potential at G if Martin is in need of development. Flowers one year deal however may make the Redskins a little hesitant to work in as a starter unless our other options flounder (or the Sherif extension goes sour)
  6. Can you please stop this?? Can we just stop judging by /commenting on color and let racism just friggin die??

    Trent is beginning to show his age, Moses is always playing hurt, and Christian was probably a wasted pick. I doubt we make it through this season without seeing OT as a significant need.

    2019 Comprehensive Draft Thread

    I know that Scotty McGem loved to talk about the importance of blue chip players, and I agree that everyone should love them. But I think elimination of glaring weaknesses is even more important. Opposing coaches shouldn't be able to gameplan on attacking an obvious weakness

    Adrian Peterson or Tony Dorsett?

    I think this belongs in the Allen/Snyder thread
  10. Campbells Draft profile shows one scout giving him a round 4 value. Haskins was a 70% passer in his 1st year, Campbell never got anywhere near that in 4 years: http://www.footballsfuture.com/2005/prospects/jason_campbell.html
  11. Has anyone heard a Peep out of Haskins?? No Gatorade contracts, Twitter frenzys, motivational slogans made into tee shirts, or even so much as a "hello" ?? It appears that he is already learning to keep his face and random thoughts out of the spotlight, which is a very encouraging sign in this market. I hope he can keep that up and that it is a sign of being a bit more humble than our previous rookie QB.
  12. The ability to Thrive and grow under pressure will reveal itself soon enough, whether it's week 1 or season 2. To be honest, I don't see why this has to be an all or none decision. But he will NOT improve his footwork under pressure will watching the first team take reps. If he earns it, let him start. If he begins to look shell-shocked, let Case run a few series while Jay/Doug/Kevin coach him up on the sideline. Sooner or later, every teenage kid needs to actually do the driving
  13. I voted "optimistic." But I have felt that way over the past 2-3 post draft periods. My pessimism begins to wax once pre-season injuries begin to mount however..
  14. Cousins seemed to mature the fastest each time he was pulled out. Whenever he got the deer in the headlights look, he would be asked to sit and allow that moment to digest for a few games. Perhaps it's OK to let the kid work until if/when he looks overwhelmed, then let him sit to digest it. Maybe we will all be pleasantly surprised. I'd be OK with allowing his play to tell us when is too soon. While Not every Sinker learns to swim, not every Swimmer had to sink first.
  15. The NFC East has both Zeke and Saquan as featured backs, and both are capable of bringing a load. As the league seems to trend towards smaller faster LBs, I see a few teams being able to capitalize on that with a Ground and Pound Smashmouth attack. Leighton Vander Esch is a package at almost 260lbs and I hated to see him go to our most hated rival. (Although Sean Lee was only 230lbs and he seemed to haunt us plenty as well.) Holcomb at 230lbs and "only" 6'1 Might be thickly built enough to handle the load, but I didn't really see much of a punishing tackler. Yes, Our DL may be able allow them to close cleanly, but it is of little value if our LBs have to absorb the impact and give up 1-2 yards after contact.
