    Does anyone proofread any more?

    Does anyone proofread any more? Did you mean "anymore?"

    Thoughts on Greg Olsen potentially signing here? (M.E.T.)

    I'd prefer Hentges over Sprinkle

    What Offer Would Change Your Mind on Trading Down???

    This number of acceptable picks in trade may be a bit of a moving target. The news of Dunbar wanting to be traded, and the like, make responsible management mandate that all offers are considered. Free agency success in filling holes makes CY an obvious target, but having a net loss in team talent may necessitate considering giving up the CY dream in order to build a team.

    Ooooweee Dunbar wants to be traded!

    Mixed feelings. We don't know what , if any, communication has occurred between Dunny and the team. But to go public first is bush league. Temper tantrum-esq. But if that is the case, here's what I would suggest. Give Dunnny a few fair options to choose from. Option A: 3 year extension at $33m. with a $6m signing bonus and $18m guaranteed (Welcome Home option) Option B: Find a team that is willing to give you a better extension AND also willing to give us a 2nd rd pick (Bye Felicia option) Option C. : Play out your final year of your contract and hope you stay healthy (Good Luck option)

    I respectfully disconcur. With the RB and TE issues we;ve had the last several years, finding a roster spot is an even greater concern. You bringing back AP to hold down the fort? Giving up on Guice? Plan on hoping on the unknown of Bryce Love or are you planning on throwing that pick and potential away. Is CT going to be resigned to be our 3rd down back? We already have our fair share of unknowns and health risks occupying our roster. You want to add another? No laughing emoji necessary

    Thoughts on Greg Olsen potentially signing here? (M.E.T.)

    And therein lies the rub. If Olsen is here and occupies a roster spot, how many TEs are you going to keep on the roster? Assume the usual 3 spots. You Have Olsen, Hentges, and a draft pick so we have someone for him to actually coach and truly develop. Is that the TE lineup we want to trot onto the field every Sunday? Then there is the potential addition of adding a FB to the roster, so maybe turn the that into a FB/TE/HB hybrid thing? I do think it would be nice to have Olsens leadership in the clubhouse. But with a 53 man roster, every spot is valuable. (btw, I'm OK with signing him, but every rose also has a thorn.)

    Preston Smith says "Hi" ...Oh, You meant "elite" when they played for us lol. Who knows how much true talent is on our roster at the moment. If it's there just waiting to be developed, coached up, and used in the appropriate scheme..then it would make sense to add even more developing talent (extra 1st round picks). I'll jump for joy if we draft CY, but I'm not jumping off a bridge if Kyle Smith and RR decide that more picks=more talent.

    Welcome to the Redskins Chase Young DE Ohio State

    Appreciate the response and thoughts. I'm not anti-chase by any means, I don't think any of us can be. But I'm definitely of the mindset that we would be remiss if we didn't consider any "generational" trade offers. If we get offered 3 1sts+, I'm listening. Or a opp to regain our 2nd and a move to #3 if the swap guaranteed we'd still get Chase. In other words, we're in a good spot and should take full advantage thereof.

    Welcome to the Redskins Chase Young DE Ohio State

    If he thinks we have young talent AND peeps believe that our talent was misused....wouldn't that lead a reasonable man to believe that we need less talent infusion and more depth? That the missing piece of the puzzle was a coaching staff capable of utilizing said talent?

    Or Simply add a FB to our existing stable. The beauty of a FB is they are usually cheap in both salary and draft capital, yet they add a special dimension that has to be accounted for. I think JP Holtz as a TE/FB/HB was a prime candidate and hated to see him lost

    Have you actually SEEN our Mods? I think just about any pic would be considered compromising (edit before the "Hey There" I mean " compromising" in a attractive and virile way)

    That;s a dream scenario IMO. Detroit moves up to get Tua and trades us their 2nd (and maybe a 2021 2nd or 2020 3rd.) We'd still get Chase and recoup our missing 2nd. But the Lions would know that we're not selecting Tua, so I doubt they trade a lot to make that move unless they feel that Miami is moving up for our pick. If any of the above happen, I feel it would probably be before draft day

    If Miami wanted Tua, they'd be talking with us

    How to Win the NFC East - Consistently

    You don't always have to play to your strengths as long as you can play to your opponents weaknesses. There's a 53 man roster. You can't have 5 speedy D-lineman to counteract the next Mahomes and also have 6 beefeaters ready to rotate in when Zeke is lined up on a 3rd and 1. And yes, I realize that there is not a Mahomes in our division THIS year, but each draft can bring a new set of parameters quickly. Then we would be completely unprepared until we can counter in the following drafts. So the best approach (IMO) is to build by adding talent and minimizing your weaknesses. So how can we best prepare to dominate in the NFC East?? COACHING. The right coach can not only implement his playing style to dominate in his forte, but can also adapt to expose weaknesses in the opponents roster. Coaches that can make real time adjustments. We've seen a fair amount of talent shine on other rosters when they looked very average under our coaches. For every horse on an opponents roster, there is also a pony and a poodle. Find their Poodles. (edit: This also broaches the topic of adding Young vs adding 3 other solid players in a trade. Only 1 Horse or upgrade 3 Poodles with 3 ponies?)
