  1. 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.
  2. 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?
  3. 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.
  4. 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?
  9. 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.
  10. THe redskins receivers have no respect.... from anyone including us, why should the Refs bail them out?
  11. 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.
  14. Saying he was held, and not getting calls. He never gets the calls... I'm tired of the excuses. Â
  15. 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.
  17. The only thing worse was hearing them praise Dunbar as our best corner... a CONVERTED wide receiver was it? I wanted to throw up. The Defense needs a dose of class, something like what we had when #28 Green or the guy we signed from Seattle a while back.  We are terrible.
  18. I'd be interested in seeing a break down of where the runs were, because a lot of the big plays were screens not runs.

    Next Day Thread: Redskins vs. Saints

    Everyone is all over Alex Smith, but I don't blame him all that much. Cam Jordan, and the stunts the saints ran let them get pressure with only five guys meaning he was throwing into dime coverage nearly every time.  Everyone from Trent over to Moses should be ashamed of that.... The one sack where Jordan feints inside and Moses totally fell for it.... is an epitomy of this team. Calahan is an overrated coach frankly. Fire his butt, but you know its hard holding him responsible when all he has is a few interior turds to polish. And Brandon Scherif had better find a way to man up or be called the biggest bust here since... wow how long has it been?
  20. Crazy thought..... What if Jay Gruden decided to quit? What if he said he had it with the apathetic way they were playing, handed the clipboard to someone else and said you want to embarass yourselves again, go right ahead. Seriously, I don't know if he would, but after tonight, I know people are all over Jay, but players have to execute too. And Jay, didn't have the personell say that Shanahan or Gibbs had.

    Moving Trent will make no difference I'm afraid. MOses is not agile enough (too many injuries) Sherff has brain farts... and Bergstrom... heck I'd love to tell you what he's doing wrong but so much bad around him has to be the Centers fault also right? Why are we so bad against stunts? Oh and stop pointing to Green Bay Game, they were down a few people, and are looking as bad as we are. Not something to write home over.
  22. I like the core of our D Line, but Kerrigan looks pedestrian, Preston Smith should NOT be extended, Mason and Buddy can stay at MLB. We need new Outside Backers, and 2 new Corners, oh, and one competent Free safety out of the Nicholson'Swearenger angle. On OL. Yikes, We need like 4 OL. A new tackle, a new Guard, probably a qualified Center. And a fist full of receivers... too many holes to fill in one season.

    Game Night Thread- Redskins at Saints

    One last thing, and it has to come down to coaching, why do we seem to have so many stupid penalties? (I don't mean penalties in general, but that Nicholson late hit was a good example of what I am talking about.) THis team has done NOTHING to deserve acting like that. SOmeone needs to tell them that.

    Game Night Thread- Redskins at Saints

    I'm ready to throw the towel in on this team right now. I see busts all over the place, and frankly, I like Smith, he seemed the only one who cared after the Saints got up big in the First Half. Team had no juice coming out of half time. So, its put up or shut up time. Win three straight or start planning to blow the entire offense up, and start from scratch. Oh yeah, and Fire Jay and Bruce while you are at it.

    Raise your hands if you want to see the REdskins win a division that is below .500, host a wild card game and be blown out by one of: New Orleans, Atlanta, Carolina, Minnesota, Chicago, Green Bay, or Seatle? WHat no takers? Winning a division is meaningless when its down.
