    Cut-Down Day

    do you think your Flanigan will be a practice squad destination? Or maybe we're trying to trade for another tight end has there been any word on when Jordan reads going to be ready to play?

    Cut-Down Day

    Thanks for posting that list. CBS had it sound like Bibbs was one of the last cuts to get to 53/54...... This makes so much more sense The big names on that list might be, Dunn, Taylor, Lanier, Hood, Vigil, Marshall, (I doubt we cut Marshall and perrine if bibbs is gone), Apke, Evveret, I dunno about Cobbs, I figured we'd keep Quinn.

    Cut-Down Day

    Really surprised they cut Bibbs.... Perine should be on notice, he's gotta be the last Offensive guy on the roster. Also sorry to see Quick go, but we had some VERY good youth for a change, I can't say I blame the team on that one. WHat was throwing me this morning. We didn't cut any DL? Not a one? That like never happens.

    Cut-Down Day

    WHile we wait, is it okay to ask people for predictions? How many at each POsition do we keep? How many of: QB: 2 HB: 4 WR: 7 TE: 3 OL: 9 DT: 3 DE: 4 OLB: 4 ILB: 4 CB: 6 Safeties: 4 Specials: 3 53 Yeah that's 1 short… I'm thinking that goes on Defense an extra Line backer or DL My guesses above (I was really thinking we'd keep a FB also, but after they let wellman go, doubt that happens. Do we add another TE? Not sure.

    Redskins to sign Adrian Peterson per NFL.com

    Let's just hope this doesn't turn out like that late trade for a RB under Gibbs who I think hardly played at all that year. (thankfully no draft picks exchanged... trying to remember T J Duckett?
  8. I agree with others, On paper its looking good, but I don't like to judge based on vanilla preseason opposition either. But would we agree that the last time we had a front this strong was during Gibb's Second tenure under Gregg Williams?
  9. Very sad to see Welman go. Didn't realize he was hurt at all.
  10. The one article I read before the draft suggested he could be a steal, but needs some development (might be a bit raw was the wording IIRC.) Still, given some of our question marks, sure why not.
  11. quinn's on the left?
  12. This is the DT I wanted earlier in the mocking season. Never expected we'd get him and Payne..... Looking forward to seeing our DL maul the competition.
  13. Lead the NCAA in receptions? Man it will be nice to have a WR who we aren't expecting will drop the ball in a crucial situation.
  14. Here's my take on Dez. Sign him or don't Sign him? - Meh We don't have a legit #1 WR anywhere. Would Dez be that? (I'm thinking no) Is he an upgrade over Doctson or Richardson? (push) So for the right price, sign him or don't sign him. However, I'm an Engineer, I think of thinks as trade offs. Signing Dez gives us a bit more bite in our Receiving corp, even if he gets dropsies, he can't be any worse than pryor, right? However, what if what we really are looking at is Signing Dez for 8-9 mil, or, drafting a WR in the 2nd, 3rd, or 4th that will be with the team for ten years, and be a stud to build around that we have not had since Santana Moss. If its a tradeoff between developing a rookie we draft, or signing Dez, I'd rather draft otherwise, I'm indifferent to the move, it doesn't upset me, doesn't elate me.
  15. WHen I looked at Overthecap.com it looked like we had mybe 34 people from the main roster this passed year on roster signed for 2019. and 2020 sees even fewer. Cooley mentioned Brandon Scherf (sp?) I didn't see his name. Of course that includes those they haven't signed that were FA this year like Ryan Grant, Spencer Long, Terrrel Pryor, Zach Brown etc.

    Alex Smith Trade Thread (Details Inside)

    I know Scott is there now, but the browns were the franchise that traded for Osweiller for a pick then cut him.... with the nasty salary he had in Houston. Not saying that they would do that again.

    yeah I wasn't sure one made sense in the first.

    2018 Comprehensive NFL Draft Thread

    as i look at the QB Draft class I feel like there's a big gap between 1st and 4th rd. in terms of talent. Thankfully we have Smith so don't have to force the issue. I think I will like next years class better. As for WR, I'd love to have an impact guy, but for which WR position? We are obviously keeping Crowder, I'm expect Ryan Grant to be gone at some point. I think you still have Doctson for next year, and you have Robert Davis who may have been on Practice squad for a while, no idea if he'll be worth moving up they could still extend Pryor for a year because of his injury (they showed a lot of patience with Galette after all) But I half wonder if they will surprise us and reach out for an impact Tight End. I don't think they move on from Reed yet, but Vernon is Serviceable, but we may have seen the best from him. I'm not sure what Sprinkle is at this point, and Niles Paul does whatever is asked of him, but I feel like we might want to start grooming a replacement for Niles, Vernonr, or Jordan. Seems like Cooley was talking about some Tight End a while ago that might be an impact pick.

    Alex Smith Trade Thread (Details Inside)

    No, I was comparing the situation. I do think, and hope Smith is better, money wise he better be. This was just many of the things I contemplated last night. I honestly thought kirk wanted 28-29 mil. 25 mil doesn't sound bad for kirk, frankly. When you cons

    Alex Smith Trade Thread (Details Inside)

    You definitely want Alex. The guy wouldn't throw an INT if it wasn't clear he would complete it. So if you look in Skins history (ignore KC)... what QB might smith most remind us of? Mark Brunell Trent Green Could Alex Smith be the return of Trent Green? (man I'm still hurting over losing that guy.)

    Alex Smith Trade Thread (Details Inside)

    Most of us that are saying that are okay with sucking next year and taking some lumps, if it sets us up for a stronger 4-5 year run. That was me last night, could not fall asleep. I'm just thankful since I drew the short straw and had to pick a non skins team on MaddeN (son won the skins rights) I was torn between the Packers, Steelers, Colts, or Falcons. I chose the Pack... and first thing I did was Trade for Fuller. (Now I got Fuller and Ricky JF. former skins both now :/) If the rumors of Kirk to Denver being lined up with a Brinks Trunk and a Cabin Cruiser on a trailer, and that Denver may release a high priced corner to make room. Isn't Aqib Talib an old Bruce Allen pick from Tampa Bay?

    2 thoughts. Gruden now on notice time to perform.... Or he and Bruce both gone soon.

    Alex Smith Trade Thread (Details Inside)

    Alex Smith... Is no Clinton Portis. But at least we know what's up for a few years at QB. Typical front office rather than develop a QB or keep one, then. . Hey if true Talib is out in Denver....... I feel bad for fuller. Love that ball player. Traded for him on Madden (chose to let son take Washington so I took Green Bay)
  24. I went ahead and reached out. Thanks for letting me know, calmly. I hardly ever want to start threads anymore. Most of what I want to talk about is already there, and don't have the mega hours to lurk like I used to. My comment was not intended as arguing over your interpretation of the rules. I'm actually at a loss here either way. I need to make time to go review them now either way.
