  1. 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.

    Brett Rypien. Opinions?

    Will grier reminds me a lot of Rypien... (Mark Rypien) or Somethig like a cross between Brunnel and Cousins. He does throw an occasional pick, but has good mobility, and reeds the field pretty well. Most of the INTs I saw this season, were not his fault (off receivers hands)

    Take the full cap hit for Smith in 2019

    How many years does kerrigan have left on his contract? Look I wouldn't cut smith this year..... I'd consider it next year.... but I'm not expecting to see him play until mid season at best. I'm expecting he's on PUP list through camp... That having been said. I'd sit down with Trent and ask him, what he thinks about his career. Does he want to retire a redskin, or does he want a chance to play for someone else, since its going to be really tough to get to the play offs next year. Let Trent say he wants to stay or not. If he says he'd like the option, grant his agent license to seek a trade. I'd do the same for Kerrigan, but I'd tell him I think he's earned a right to try to earn the sack record with the franchise. Reed, I'd trade if anyone would have him, Crowder I would let go. I'd draft a LT if trent goes, or a WR in round 1. (if not WR then one of MLB, Guard, or Corner) I'd try to extend Dix for now if he looks serviceable, but I wouldn't break the bank for him.

    Poll : Source of Massive Injuries the last 2 years

    I don't know how you'd prove it, but conditioning is part, and I think Play Calling is also a apart. People getitng hurt because they are put in poor positions on the field Is what I wonder. I dunno how you prove it.

    Alex Smith Actual Status

    So, I'm assuming at this point that Alex won't be ready for camp, or pre-season or week 1... If he starts on the PUP list does that mean we wouldn't see him till mid season at the earliest?

    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)
  10. 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!
  11. 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.

    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?
  13. 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?
  14. quinn's on the left?
  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. I posted it here because I thought it was relevant to Redskins fans, not because of the politics. However, if you think it belongs in the tailgate, I've not got an issue with it being moved. (The line here feels a little gray to me on this particular one). I'll try to reach out
  18. Oh.. for a second I thought you were goint to say it was Kurt Cousins... You know the guy from the Maroon and Black gang?
  19. (Corrected) The fact the *Fake* WshPost article starts off with the WAshington Football team was a dead give away.
  20. Even as we Redskin fans suffer through another season of apparent failure, it seems that not everything you read about the Redskins is true. This afternoon I saw friends posting on Facebook about a planned name change for the organization. My friends on facebook who shared a url that said we were changing the name to the "Red Hawks". However, when I came to the Washington Post Site below, and looked to see what the Post thought, I found out it was not so at all, somewhat relieved actually.: https://www.washingtonpost.com/sports/redskins/?utm_term=.49b6f8775607 Clearly the name change is FakeNews. (I must admit I almost believed it myself, and several friends apparently were suckered by it today.) I'm not posting the link that I saw, and according to the Post article, Redskins Park is already aware. I didn't see this in the news section, so thought it deserved to be shared. It seems almost anything could be fake news these days. (I'll admit, though RedHawks is not the worst potential renaming suggestion I've seen recently, if push came to shove and we did. However, Hail to the Redskins! #HTTR)

    Cut or Keep - RB Edition

    Here is what I don't get. we had 1 fullback on the roster (Joe Jerridge) and reportedly Niles Paul could play that role. If we aren't keeping a true FB, then I think we actually have a possible 4th spot for a RB Which to me means we could keep JOnes, Brown, Kelley, and Thompson, at least for week 1. The fact that we are stronger at Tight End this year and might be able to cut Paulsen I think also adds to that. The rub? DO you keep 6 WRs between: Jackson, Garcon, Crowder, Grant, and Ross.... with Dotson as #6.. or do you drop Ross and go with 5? I don't think any of us would say take thorpe or kendall thompson over Ross . Harris I think is PRactice squad bound. So I wonder.

    **** the Cowboys

    It's a shame Roma will probably get traded to some lower-level team finish out his career in obscurity all because they couldn't protect him well I will not be crying a river that's for certain

    **** the Cowboys

    So I just saw news that (Loosen up Sandy baby. You're wound way to tight.) may have injured his back against the Seahawks And their rookie RB, Elliot, was seen at a Colorado Marijuana store... (facepalm)
  25. I voted we're doomed, but I don't think we are doomed. I think we are intentionally looking bad... so as to catch early game opposition of guard.
