  1. 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

    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.

    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
  5. It is often hard to calculate the difference between sheer dumb luck and skill. But given the current GM of the Giants

    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?
  9. 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!
  10. 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!
  11. THe giants got not Eli Manning, but Joe Flacco light LOL
  12. 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
  13. 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.

    Spurrier comment

    Did anyone but me see the clip live? Honestly, it sounded more like he was griping about how tough it was to coach in the NFL... It wasn't a Dis on the Redskins... if anything, he as tooting his own horn, by saying how hard its been to win the first game here. This comment is all about the ole ball coach, and not much about us. So I wouldn't be upset if I were you.

    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.
  20. ANother WR on IR... wow.

    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.

    Redskins Cut DJ Swearinger!

    If not for the fact half our initial roster is on IR I'd expect a lot more cuts.
  23. Veretax

    Lock up Josh Johnson now

    See if I was Bruce I'd look at this way. Alex Smith under contract? Yes? Too expensive to cut yet? Yes? Will he start before week 1? NO so he probably isn't even available to week 8 is my guess Colt McCoy? Yes? My gut says no. Backup has to stay healthy to be worth keeping, and honestly I saw more from JOhnson than McCoy if McCoy has to be cut then so be it. As for Sanchez? Guy should be cut week 17 end of game anyways. SO you'll need the following: Draft a QB early Bring in a couple of arms for camp to find #2 JOsh JOhnson Smith That's your 4 QBs going into Camp, probably.
  24. How would this be for a Jay Gruden curve... we win out, run the table, get to the SUper Bowl. (Win or Lose, Jay gets an extension)...... Now that would be a curve many here would not expect.

    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?
