  1. I'm faking contusion something like that that weird Jason Taylor injury we signed him out of nowhere

    Breaking: Redskins claim Reuben Foster NFL.COM

    It certainly could be savvy, smart... I'm reserving judgement. However, it is smart in one way... Is anyone talking about the thanksgiving debacle in Dallas anymore? Nope, it might be causing turmoil inside the locker room, but I've not heard anything that would make me think that to be so. Time will tell ultimately.
  3. I dislike domestic violence so strongly..... THe situation with this Ex, Is not clear to me from media reports yet what is going. The investigation is pending. If he's on the Commissioner exempt list, fine, I don't know how you could let a guy play or leave his current zipcode while under investigation anyways. What confuses me is Doug going out and apologizing for something today. I must have missed a bit of news, but we continue to look like a front office with ZERO PR skill. Whether decision is Golden or wasted breath will tell in time, but its frustrating to see our franchise in these situations seemingly all the time.

    I'm Not Mad...

    Even with all the injuries, all the dysfunction, I still think the odds are good that 2 of 5 are wins down the stretch, that's 8-8.... is it enough for the playoffs in the end? May depend on whom we beat, and hat dallas does in the same stretch.

    The Offensive Line Thread

    Okay so just a rib injury for Trent... that's a relief, I was looking for articles and one NBC article used wording that sounded more like a stroke. We cannot afford to lose Trent long term, whether he's back the rest of the season or not.
  6. I never wanted to keep Perine, and he wasn't healthy enough, I'd let him and Fat Rob go. Vernon. I still like the guy, he's played good at times, but hes' not a number 1 tight end. Jordan, I think took a while to find his feet in season because of the injury. Norman, I don't care either way, same with Thompson, but I'd only trade Thompson if you are planning to Resign AP. NO love for Stacy, and Paul I think did some good things, but may be redundant with the emergency of Quinn. My real worry is the OL. Sherf needs retained, We need a new LG, probably a rookie, and then there is Trent. Some of the reports almost made it sound like he was having a stroke or something. If Trents health is going south, then this team is in serious trouble on the oline, and there is no sugar coating that. You aren't going to See SMith go, I don't think he can be cut until he emerges from rehab, and if that's8-10 months, you can't count on him at all. We need another young Corner, and I think with the addition and retention of Dix, you have some Safety possibilities. I"m not all that big on Swearinger, but i'd not rock the boat for or against him.

    Starting QB 2019???

    WHo is at QB doesn't matter if we don't improve pass protection. We need a new Tackle, and a new Left Guard. I've been dreaming of taking a LT/LG early then trading up late in the 1st for someone like WIll Grier (but I doubt he lasts that long)

    A New Beginning - Embrace The Noodle

    So for those thinking back to when JoeyT got knocked out. Who was the Redskins QB the rest of the season?
  9. On the recovery from injury. My wife broke her leg up near the hip several years ago, (not the same injury) she's still not walking without the aid of walker. She got a titanium rod too, but it was almost 2 months before any wait at all could go on that leg, It was multiple months befor she was released from Rehab. 2.5 years later still recovering. Granted Alex is fitter, younger, and healthier, he'll bounace back faster for sure, but will he be ready for camp? I doubt it.
  10. Conspiracy? We've been complaining about how bad the Oline has been all year. SO is that All jays fault, no.... but you have to wonder what would it take for Snyder to say enough, could this injury have been it? I dunno, and I'm not trying to start trouble either, We are still in the hunt for the Playoffs (technically so why fire him now), but that loss, that injury is going to have a profound impact on the fan base and team. Not since Sean Taylor was murdered, have I felt quite like this. It's really surreal. LIstening to JoeyT talking on Post Game about it.... yeah.... you almost can't believe it. Yeah lets give it a few days to calm down.
  11. Given there was no blitz killer on that play, I wondered if Gruden could be fired for cause. The FG might have been dan saying, look, let's just evaluate our talent the rest of the way, try to improve draft position. yeah.. figures. we were 6-2 at one point?
  12. Going to say it now, if Alex is out for the year, and if there is any truth that Jay's play calling caused it. (Could that be cause to clean house also?) We just can't catch a break as a franchise ither way. sheesh.
  13. That looked like a Tibia or Fibula fracture at worst, Severe high ankle sprain with perhaps break at worst. at least 6-8 weeks to rehab. Poor Alex. We love you man. You're a fighter! We'll miss you, but now its time for the cult of Colt to Rise again.

    When Can We Get Out of the Alex Smith Contract???

    Two options, go all in on rebuilding in season (hard to do) Suck it the rest of the season and draft a QB this year. I like Will Grier but there are many talented guys coming out I bet. Start Alex next year, work draft pick in when you can. That would be my plan... because lets face it, would you ant to send out one of this years First Rd QBs with this Offensive line? Yeah I didn't think so, so that means we are paying Alex to take some lumps, and like it... What if he retires/asks out of the contract? No idea then.

    Press Release: #REDSKINS Quotes - Gruden

    So what happens if Smith gets an ACL tar or other year ender?

    Has FO given Jay a Playoff Roster for 2018???

    THe roster and injuries are so bad, at this point I'm starting to believe the franchise is cursed, and nothing short of a Name change could fix that. (not that I'm advocating that.) But look, we brought in a slot receiver, did not replace Pryor, have had Mo Harris step up a little bit, and still can't be consistent?? This team needs 3 new OL and quick cause who knows when trent finally hangs it up. We need a STarting caliber WR, a better backup RB then anyone in house right now, and I've not even talked about QB or Defense ?

    Safety Clinton Dix to the skins

    THe real question is will this help or provide more confusion in the secondary? Or will it expose Norman or whoever keeps occasionally blowing coverages?
  18. Every time Dallas got flagged you could tell the CBS folks were just salivating all over Dallas. I don't think the issue is Smith, I think the issue is early play calling. Radio play by play said in the first half we had something like 8 first down runds in a row...... Talk about predictible.
  19. THe redskins receivers have no respect.... from anyone including us, why should the Refs bail them out?
  20. I'm starting to wonder if Josh Doctson buys his gloves from the same store as Carlos Rogers once did.

    Tough Question: Is Jordan Reed overrated?

    Jordan Reed's lack of consistency and injuries have made him a blip on the radar. WHen he's gone he will not be remembered with some of the great REdskins Tight Ends. Why? HIs attitude exceeds how he plays right now.

    Has FO given Jay a Playoff Roster for 2018???

      I almost feel like Trent deserves his own thread. I'm least upset with him. I never expeted anything from Chase or Bergstrom, but Scheriff and Moses... just wow. horrible game.  I don't know if moving Trent to Guard helps, he's one of the best tackles in the league, which doesn't say much after last night. I'm not ragging on Trent, I am not that confident that Ty NSeke is anything more than a career backup, frankly. So my comments are more about my lack of faith in who they put at LT over Trent, then on trent.
  23. Saying he was held, and not getting calls. He never gets the calls... I'm tired of the excuses. Â
  24. Yeah... smell the tea leaves... Big D - New Coach... likely Dak is gone... NYG - Same thing Our two biggest rivals will be retooling and rebuilding while we swim in a sewer of manure.  bleh... tastes horrible too. I think its time for a no social media policy during and leading up to the game on game day. That 'its just business' tweet, OMG..... if this was a business, it would be time to file Bankruptcy!

    Game Night Thread- Redskins at Saints

    I knew that hit out of bounds was bad. Looked like a cheap hit with the helmet that wasn't called also.  This team is nothing without AP and Thompson.  If they both are out 4 games we may lose all 4.
