    Redskins vs Eagles Prediction Thread: Where There's Smoke, There's Fire

    Remember the kid from the movie a league of their own? Yes that kid, Stillwell Angel? If he showed up on our sideline and pulled the same antics... that's what I think our chances are.

    Alex Smith's future with the team....

    I think you also misunderstood what I was saying. Alexs plans matter, but alex being 'prepared' for the job matters too. I don't know why skins fans think any old player can be plopped in a FO position and have instant success. That's not a knock on Smith, I think he's very intelligent. But I think hanging your hopes on MR Smith goes to Washington as GM is pie in the sky fantasy. They would be more likely to promote doug or the other fellow on staff as Tag Alex. Now if he retires would I offer him some kind of position with the team? (That's a different question then a key front office decision making position.)

    Alex Smith's future with the team....

    What exactly in Alex, makes us think that he is ready to: 1. Ready to Retire 2. Become a Front Office Person 3. Become a GM 4. Become a Coach Seriously, isn't this all just wishful thinking? If I was Alex, would I want to work in this environment? I dunno.

    The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    Yes I'm aware of the 'rumblings' of a FO shake up. I guess I feel the same today about this as I did above Carolina last monday. While going in I thought, this could be a trap/fire Ron game for the Panthers. I didn't have anything before game that would make me think, oh this is the straw.... That's all I'm saying. I think my opinion on bruce is known well enough.

    The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    Why is it everyone is acting like this game was some kind of special moment? Green Bay is likely NFC Title Berth bound. Their defense is pretty strong, and their offense is multi purpose, for once. We didn't have the horses to compete once we got behind... period.

    Redskins vs Packers Prediction Thread: Cheezy Wins

    Look, we have no place in heck winning this game. The Smith edge rush duo could give us trouble without Trent. That being said. I never in hell thought We'd be in that Carolina game, and they were a half yard away from beating GB. We win this game out right, why? We simply don't deserve too on paper.

    Next Coach?

    Gus Malzhan, Nick Saban, James Franklin And there might be one other College coach worthy of this.

    The Race to Black Monday 2019: 12/30/19

    Bye Ron Rivera... I never thought you were the problem for Carolina... but I wondered if losing to us the way they did would be the catalyst for his firing..

    Have your self a game Fabian Moreau.

    He took some criticism in recent weeks fro the media. Way to step up Fabian!
  10. 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.

    Josh Norman a healthy scratch!

    Josh looks so stoic waiting to protect the edge in the event of a never coming fake field goal.

    Gruden fired per John Keim

    Callahan promised money to coach the team with a severance package after the season maybe?
  13. "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?"

    Pick 5 players to keep + Tress Way

    Mclauren Haskins shcerff Allen Payne. it would be interesting to see the next five though because I only had two or three more players who I would consider on this list

    JAY IS FIRED!!!

    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

    Throwing in the towel

    Man.... I watched most of it on Hullu... the CBS feed kept picking up some loud fan screaming over the top of the play by play before they cut away to a game that I fell asleep too.

    wait... hot chicks? Not not "Hot "Chick? Is that one of the post game reporters for Redskins Live on cSN? (didn't he get let go by NBC Sports Wash or something?)
  20. You know how you like destroyed the Lions yesterday 45-0. ENjoy this season. You will never see a team this good again.

    New BANG! Redskins Cartoon: "Driven Insane"

    The only thing missing is AP offering to help and being told he can't start.

    Swinging Gate, Part Deux Prediction Thread!

    blind double reverse. Haskins takes a shotgun, fakes the handoff to AP rolling right, who tosses it to ct who comes back over past where AP is standing, AP throws it to a wide open Trey Quinn, who somehow manages to get called for offensive PI.

    DJ Swearinger Released by Cardinals today

    Adding more acid to this mix, isn't going to take us higher. So until we know which way is North... or whatever direction we are rowing, best work with what we have.
  24. Not even close. I would say the last zorn or Spurrier year would be #1

    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?
