  1. I really don't know why everyone is so excited about an early first round pick.  Is there a single player even worth the top 5 in this draft yet? I mean someone like Sean Taylor, or what Peterson was for so long with the VIkes?

    Plus we likely trade it away, and pick up 'value players' we brag about all off season, but can't keep up on the field.

    It's not the picks, its the person doing the picking.

    If you were at the press conference and get to ask one question of Bruce Allen, what would it be?

     

     

    "So the record of the team since coming here has not been great.   How does it feel to realize yet again, the team is not heading in the wrong direction?  Do you sleep well at night?  Have you thought about bringing in someone to help figure out a plan to rebuild the team moving forward?"


  3. We have a saying in the actual Marketplace. If somebody gets Let Go by a company it says almost nothing about the person let go but it does say a lot about the manager who hired that person a manager who supplied and provided resources for that person. And I can't help but think Bruce's in the hot seat now


  4. 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? 


  5. 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


  6. 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.

    He's been stealing money almost every season he's worked here, how did the FO screw him over by employing him as a HC for all these years and rewarding his mediocrity? If they're so bad, he can always resign and forfeit the remainder of his deal, he's guaranteed to get an OC job somewhere.

     

     

    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.
