    GTFO with that conspiracy BS.  Jay is not going to intentionally get any of his players hurt.  Pathetic you even posted that nonsense.


    Conspiracy?  We've been complaining about how bad the Oline has been all year.  SO is that All jays fault, no.... but you have to wonder what would it take for Snyder to say enough, could this injury have been it?  I dunno, and I'm not trying to start trouble either, We are still in the hunt for the Playoffs (technically so why fire him now), but that loss, that injury is going to have a profound impact on the fan base and team.  Not since Sean Taylor was murdered, have I felt quite like this.  It's really surreal.  LIstening to JoeyT talking on Post Game about it.... yeah.... you almost can't believe it.   Yeah lets give it a few days to calm down.

    Does Alex's season ending injury, basically save Gruden from being fired?  He has the ultimate excuse now if we collapse and miss the playoffs; he lost his starting QB.



    Given there was no blitz killer on that play, I wondered if Gruden could be fired for cause.

    The FG might have been dan saying, look, let's just evaluate our talent the rest of the way, try to improve draft position.  yeah.. figures.  we were 6-2 at one point?


  3. Two options, go all in on rebuilding in season (hard to do)

    Suck it the rest of the season and draft a QB this year.  I like Will Grier but there are many talented guys coming out I bet.   Start Alex next year, work draft pick in when you can.
    That would be my plan... because lets face it, would you ant to send out one of this years First Rd QBs with this Offensive line?  Yeah I didn't think so, so that means we are paying Alex to take some lumps, and like it... What if he retires/asks out of the contract?

    No idea then.

  4. THe roster and injuries are so bad, at this point I'm starting to believe the franchise is cursed, and nothing short of a Name change could fix that.

    (not that I'm advocating that.)  But look, we brought in a slot receiver, did not replace Pryor, have had Mo Harris step up a little bit, and still can't be consistent??

    This team needs 3 new OL and quick cause who knows when trent finally hangs it up.

    We need a STarting caliber WR, a better backup RB then anyone in house right now, and I've not even talked about QB or Defense ?

     Dallas is being over-hyped, as usual, by the media, and an unfortunate kick by their kicker cost them the game, well the previous play where the center moved the ball costing them 5 yds is what REALLY cost them.

    I don't have confidence in Smith, he's starting to look more and more like a game manager, not a true QB. Gruden, well, he got lucky this week, but ****ty play calling like that will cost the team the needed wins in December, and if they manage to get into the paloffs, they will be bounced in the WC round. AP and Reed and Davis is the only offense this team has.



    Every time Dallas got flagged you could tell the CBS folks were just salivating all over Dallas.  

    I don't think the issue is Smith, I think the issue is early play calling.  Radio play by play said in the first half we had something like 8 first down runds in a row...... Talk about predictible.

    Let me ask: On the pass to Doctson where he jumps in the air to try and make the catch. The corner basically stops his running, so that Doctson runs into him and jumps to try and catch.  How is that not illegal contact?  The defender was not making a play on the ball, he didn't have his head turned around.  Last I checked a cornerback can't simply stop and impede route of the WR?


    THe redskins receivers have no respect.... from anyone including us, why should the Refs bail them out?

    I beg to differ, Trent moving inside was very effective when we did it and it will extend his career.  We should make holes to plug holes, use what we got, most of it isn't going anywhere anytime soon.?

     

    And Green Bay game matters same way Cardinals game does, this team sometimes looks sharp, sometimes it doesn't.  I will not default them coming out carless vs caring, I might as well not watch if I feel that way.

     

     

    I almost feel like Trent deserves his own thread.  I'm least upset with him.  I never expeted anything from Chase or Bergstrom, but Scheriff and Moses... just wow.  horrible game.   I don't know if moving Trent to Guard helps, he's one of the best tackles in the league, which doesn't say much after last night.  I'm not ragging on Trent, I am not that confident that Ty NSeke is anything more than a career backup, frankly.  So my comments are more about my lack of faith in who they put at LT over Trent, then on trent.


  8. 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!

    AP Out with separated shoulder?


    I knew that hit out of bounds was bad.  Looked like a cheap hit with the helmet that wasn't called also.   This team is nothing without AP and Thompson.   If they both are out 4 games we may lose all 4.

  10. Everyone is all over Alex Smith, but I don't blame him all that much.  Cam Jordan, and the stunts the saints ran let them get pressure with only five guys meaning he was throwing into dime coverage nearly every time.   Everyone from Trent over to Moses should be ashamed of that.... The one sack where Jordan feints inside and Moses totally fell for it.... is an epitomy of this team.  Calahan is an overrated coach frankly.  Fire his butt, but you know its hard holding him responsible when all he has is a few interior turds to polish.  And Brandon Scherif had better find a way to man up or be called the biggest bust here since... wow  how long has it been?

  11. Crazy thought..... What if Jay Gruden decided to quit?  What if he said he had it with the apathetic way they were playing, handed the clipboard to someone else and said you want to embarass yourselves again, go right ahead.

    Seriously, I don't know if he would, but after tonight, I know people are all over Jay, but players have to execute too.  And Jay, didn't have the personell say that Shanahan or Gibbs had.


  12. Moving Trent will make no difference I'm afraid.  MOses is not agile enough (too many injuries) Sherff has brain farts... and Bergstrom... heck I'd love to tell you what he's doing wrong but so much bad around him has to be the Centers fault also right?


    Why are we so bad against stunts?

    Oh and stop pointing to Green Bay Game, they were down a few people, and are looking as bad as we are.  Not something to write home over.


  13. I like the core of our D Line, but Kerrigan looks pedestrian, Preston Smith should NOT be extended, Mason and Buddy can stay at MLB.  We need new Outside Backers, and 2 new Corners, oh, and one competent Free safety out of the Nicholson'Swearenger angle.

    On OL.  Yikes, We need like 4 OL. A  new tackle, a new Guard, probably a qualified Center.  And a fist full of receivers... too many holes to fill in one season.


  14. One last thing, and it has to come down to coaching, why do we seem to have so many stupid penalties?  (I don't mean penalties in general, but that Nicholson late hit was a good example of what I am talking about.)  THis team has done NOTHING to deserve acting like that.  SOmeone needs to tell them that.


  15. I'm ready to throw the towel in on this team right now.

    I see busts all over the place, and frankly, I like Smith, he seemed the only one who cared after the Saints got up big in the First Half.  Team had no juice coming out of half time.

    So, its put up or shut up time.  Win three straight or start planning to blow the entire offense up, and start from scratch.  Oh yeah, and Fire Jay and Bruce while you are at it.

    The old saying "You are what your record says you are.  So far, the Skins are the best team in the NFC East, even after tonight.  All of the upcoming Redskins games against NFC East opponents will be against very flawed teams.



    Raise your hands if you want to see the REdskins win a division that is below .500, host a wild card game and be blown out by one of: New Orleans, Atlanta, Carolina, Minnesota, Chicago, Green Bay, or Seatle?  WHat no takers?

    Winning a division is meaningless when its down.
