    So about this Chicago Game?

    I just now read that not only is this game at Home at FexEx, but its also on Monday Night. ACcording to the Washington Post Monday Night Is the Saddest night at least going back to 1998. I had thought that it was just Jay Gruden who was bad on Monday Night, but then I saw that we are 1 and 15? in the last 16 attempts? 1 and 16 if you go back to 1998? I knew I felt miserable after losing to the cowpokes at home the way we did, but someone please, tell me, is there anything at all on this team, this week, that I can be optimistic about?

    A friend just told me, "hey, I'll just make a list of redskins miscues and see how many we hit before I'm passed out drunk." As if I wasn't depressed enough.

    The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    I want to be clear. I like Jay Gruden. But he cannot be expected to achieve with a run down beater of a car that's in the shop every few weeks. The reality is he will want out I think. Bruce has to go, clean house in the personnel department, keep scouts And bring in someone who has done personnel before. Now I ruin the thread with my Cowboys prediction. Redskins win by 3 scores or more The fan base breathes a sigh of relief, maybe we arent as bad as we thought. Then the following week we loose case for most of the remaining season due to injury. I don't know what happens beyond that as the magic 8-ball is clouding up

    Guice Injury and Med staff

    Guice to IR? wow, I do not CARE that he can come back if healty in 8 weeks. You've basically used your one IR return spot on a guy who probably should have never even played in Preseason, could have sat on PUP for a while. I'm sick of this crap. If I were ticket holder, I would put my tickets in individual envelopes, with a note that says my disgust with this team, and say forget about any money from me until you #FireBruceAllen. 1 envelope a week times how many fans? Nuts.

    Awesome Problem ; How do you say we split the carries ?

    That's a fair response. Allow me to rephrase, that may help. Let's set the table. 1. Jay likely feels that the FO has interfered in the team since he has been here. (Griffin Vs Cousins, Alex Smith, losing Desean/Garcon and others, etc.) 2. I get the feeling that Jay kind of expects thins to be like this and then he's gone. Unless we make a run to a title, I think he's gone in his head already. 3. Because of 2, why not take a shot with doing things differently? 3. He did not want AP, he wanted to keep someone (maybe Samaje, who knows.) 4. It feels like a the natural. Roy Hobbs was signed, he's a good hitter, but because the coach didn't want him, he sat the bench. 5. From what has been said recently, Jay seems like he's tired of caring this FO's water. 6. I don't think he's intentionally sabotaging the team, but I do think he's had his fill. So some of these shots are meant to get the FO attention, since they seem content to hide behind Jay and Doug.

    I'm convinced that FO screwed him over this season (I know he's been screwed over his whole contract here) So he's basically decided he's daring them to fire him, so he can pull an AB and go work with Johnny Boy.
  8. I'm beginning to question the people that gave our medical staff the award last season. Seriously, Guice hurt again? I don't care that its the other leg, we made him starter having proved nothing in Preaseason. Then Jon Allen may be out too? I need a shurt that says: "I'm a skins fan, Yes, Dysfunctional We Are. #FireBruceAllen #FireJayGruden"

    Extending Season to 18 games

    It seems you were trying to create additional NFC/AFC matchup, but What about former division rivals? Ex: Arizona used to play NYG, WAS, DAL, PHI Ex: TItans used to play AFC North Ex: Tampa Bay Used to play NFC North Ex: Saints and Falcons used to play NFC West Ex: Colts used to play AFC West Ex: (Jaguars used to be in central too I think?) Ex: Ravens were Browns so that doesn't help them. Ex: Texans were always in South Ex: Seattle Used to be in AFC West (KC, DEN, OAK, LAC) Could create a pod system where teams that used to play former division rivals rotate through them, and then in the year that game isn't available, Would be free for another matchup. So Like, Arizon could may NYG, WAS, DAL, PHI Home/Away In back to back years. New Orleans and Atlanta get a game against San Fran, Rams) Catch is Ravens are already in former division. Only team that's moved is Houston, but houston needs games with PIT, CLE/BAL, JAX, CIN
  10. I wish I was that rabid a fan. Without Haskins we aren't even making the playoffs. Now at least there's hope.

    Time to change philosophy on TE's

    Well I was happy for Wesco, but bummed for us is what I should have said

    Time to change philosophy on TE's

    Yeah I was bummed when my sleeper TIght End Jevon Wesco out of WVU went in the 4th round. I don't know any site that had that one.

    2019 NFL Draft discussion thread

    Smith wasn't a mistake. Not strength ening offensive line after the trade is. If Haskins bombs where will we be in the years? That what i keep asking
  14. It is often hard to calculate the difference between sheer dumb luck and skill. But given the current GM of the Giants

    2019 NFL Draft discussion thread

    Bee was one of the Marshall players I thought was interesting If Harmon can be more productive than DOctson I think that's a win. I think he'll be more than that. So figure our Initial WRs Depth Chart look like: Harmon Mclaurin Richardson Quinn Doctson Sims Davis CHesson (I don't think any of the rest played all that much?) I know I left off Brian QUick, did he actually resign? Or not? (I'm not sure where he fits)

    Any word on any free agents we might pick up after Mr Irrelevant?
  18. You know what else? Because of all the smoke from Gruden, Allen, Snyder, etc. We tricked the Giants into taking Daniel Jones of Duke. ROFLLMAO,, which quite possibly means a lost pick if they intend to sit him for 3 years. Its like playing chess, and you made the opponent take a move to retreat the knight or bishop so it doesn't get taken. First Take was hilarious to watch tonight, even Skip Bayless said we got a better QB than Daniel Jones. Ha ha ha. I started creating a youtube play list of fan and media reaction to the Giants pick. I think we did good, now will haskins be money? Dunno yet. but he's my QB now, and I'm rooting for him #HTTR!
  19. Look I respect Theismann, if I'm theismann, I tell Haskins, he doesn't need his permission, but whatever number he wears, don't try to live in the shadow of who came before, forge your own legend Dwayne. #HTTR!
  20. THe giants got not Eli Manning, but Joe Flacco light LOL
  21. Not important, what is important, was the ones I were listening too were also considering two things: 1. The apparent Win No posture seemingly coming out of Ashburn 2. Jays need to win this year period 3. That drafting a QB who might lack in experience may not be a great idea for THIS year. But as Cooley says, Haskins if given some time could be even greater down the road. THat's why I actually like the pick. I just have a distrust of the Front Office/Coaching staff not pulling the rug out from under this guy like happened to Jason Campbell. Yeah the NY Media is already loving on the Daniel Jones Pick: SEE NY Post: (Enjoy laughing) NY Post: Giants Daniel Jones pick is a disaster on so many levels
  22. I dunno about that. Several analysts I trust didn't like Haskins, but you have to also figure, This pick is not just a this year thing. I think we are so hurt over what happened with RG3 that its hard to see beyond this season. Haskins might have the highest ceiling of this draft, but he may also have a lower floor. As I watch tape I like the pick, I just hope they give him enough time to grow.

    2019 Comprehensive Draft Thread

    Look I like Will Grier's moxy, (and not because I'm a WVU fan), he's not afraid to move around the pocket, but I think he needs to sit a year wherever he goes so he might not be a great fit for us for that reason. Grier wasn't as half hazard with the ball as some other QBs I've seen recently, but he takes a lot of chances with his body that makes me nervous. However, WVU had a seriously Oline Depth shortage near the end of last year... This guy played hurt the last few games, which shocked me when I heard. That's the kind of toughness we need at QB, frankly. I just don't think we wait till 2nd Rd to draft QB if we draft QB high this year.

    Starting QB 2019???

    An NFL writer for Bleacher Report (so I already know I'm going to hate it) today has suggested we'd trade for Andy Dalton give up a 2nd Round pick. I wonder if I'm the only here who is about warm to that, as melted marshmallows in cocoa. Could there be more of a Blah choice than Dalton? Seriously, I'd rather draft a young guy start Colt/Johnson as trade a draft pick for Dalton.

    Take the full cap hit for Smith in 2019

    FOr those that think us maybe expecting a bad season is doom and gloom. If I were Bruce, I'd say we know the outlook isn't good, we are going to do what we can, but We think, now is the time to take a season and experiment. I mean really open up the playbook. THat's what I want to see anyways.
