  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  6. 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!

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. Here's my take on Dez.

    Sign him or don't Sign him?  - Meh

    We don't have a legit #1 WR anywhere.  Would Dez be that?  (I'm thinking no)
    Is he an upgrade over Doctson or Richardson?  (push)

    So for the right price, sign him or don't sign him.

    However, I'm an Engineer, I think of thinks as trade offs.  Signing Dez gives us a bit more bite in our Receiving corp, even if he gets dropsies, he can't be any worse than pryor, right?

    However, what if what we really are looking at is Signing Dez for 8-9 mil, or, drafting a WR in the 2nd, 3rd, or 4th that will be with the team for ten years, and be a stud to build around that we have not had since Santana Moss. 

    If its a tradeoff between developing a rookie we draft, or signing Dez, I'd rather draft otherwise, I'm indifferent to the move, it doesn't upset me, doesn't elate me.

    So explain to me why we aren't paying Kirk 28 million a year when we aren't using the money we saved from him? I mean don't get me wrong I called the alex smith trade week 3 and it makes sense, but man we're missing a lot of pieces. Not to mention we're sending one of our better draft picks away to KC. Not sure what the plan is but it's not like we've got 12 picks in he draft either. 


    Eagles are going to destroy the NFC East again next year.

    WHen I looked at it looked like we had mybe 34 people from the main roster this passed year on roster signed for 2019.  and 2020 sees even fewer.  Cooley mentioned Brandon Scherf (sp?) I didn't see his name.  Of course that includes those they haven't signed that were FA this year like Ryan Grant, Spencer Long, Terrrel Pryor, Zach Brown etc.

    But if you're the Browns why would you want to pay him 34M for one season if he tells you that's all he's willing to play for you?  Which would be the smart move for him to make.


    I don't see how the Jimmy G deal changes anything with the Skins leverage.  All that deal did was potentially make Kirk richer in the long run.

    I know Scott is there now, but the browns were the franchise that traded for Osweiller for a pick then cut him.... with the nasty salary he had in Houston.

    Not saying that they would do that again.

    My guess is that the Skins consider Sprinkle to be their developmental TE and that's fine for the #3 TE.  Niles Paul had a good career with the Skins and hopefully for him he'll go to as a special teamer to the 49ers or Rams.  But you are right about there being an issue with the TE position.  Reed can't be relied upon and probably should be considered a possession WR anyway.  I think Vernon Davis is more than serviceable but he was a short-term fix to the Reed problem.  


    I'm sure Smith would appreciate an impact TE but there don't appear to be any worth the #13 pick.  I saw one mock with the Skins selecting Troy Fumagali from Wisconsin in the 4th round.  

    yeah I wasn't sure one made sense in the first.

    I am not a fan of using the first round pick on a QB, RB or WR.  The QB would have to sit and that means the Skins get zero production out of the first round and 3rd round of the draft.  A WR will take a year or two to develop and the Skins are still in the process of developing their current roster of young WRs.  A RB could have a big impact but he's going to share carries so I'd rather look in the 4th round.  I think we are on the same page here. 

    as i look at the QB Draft class I feel like there's a big gap between 1st and 4th rd. in terms of talent.  Thankfully we have Smith so don't have to force the issue.  I think I will like next years class better.

    As for WR, I'd love to have an impact guy, but for which WR position?  We are obviously keeping Crowder, I'm expect Ryan Grant to be gone at some point.  I think you still have Doctson for next year, and you have Robert Davis who may have been on Practice squad for a while, no idea if he'll be worth moving up they could still extend Pryor for a year because of his injury (they showed a lot of patience with Galette after all)

    But I half wonder if they will surprise us and reach out for an impact  Tight End.  I don't think they move on from Reed yet, but Vernon is Serviceable, but we may have seen the best from him.  I'm not sure what Sprinkle is at this point, and Niles Paul does whatever is asked of him, but I feel like we might want to start grooming a replacement for Niles, Vernonr, or Jordan.     Seems like Cooley was talking about some Tight End a while ago that might be an impact pick.
