    Redskins to sign Adrian Peterson per NFL.com

    Glad he is back but really who else do they have. And please don't answer Guice for Gods sake. It reminds me of what I thought when Gruden made him inactive for the first game. I was like what a dumb move. The handwriting is on the wall. Gruden will not finish out the year. And that is exactly what happened. That move was literally the beginning of the end for Gruden.
  2. I say stick with the youth movement. This coaching staff has a bit of a honeymoon period for a couple of years. Go find your own young talent and coach them up. One of the huge reasons the offense on this team has struggled the last couple of years is lack of a credible tight end. We have/had one but he was never on the field. The last thing we need is another veteran late in their career, and it has been a good one no doubt, coming here soaking up a bunch of cap but because their body is breaking or broken down can't stay on the field. Now, if you want to make the argument that because we have a young team that he would be a great mentor/team guy to have in the locker room even if he is not a huge contributor on the field then okay I could be open to that but then for sure it has to be at the right price.

    Norman released

    This post brings home two points. One, Norman was a lot of bluster and an average player who got paid a lot of money. Second point is how incompetent the front office really was. Breeland never even got the courtesy of a contract offer when he left yet his stats are better than Normans and they the paid him $56.7 million less. Some will say oh but Breeland was on a rookie contract. Agreed so the money may not be the most telling thing here its the results really. And oh by the way. Breeland has a Super Bowl to boot. Wasn't all that excited when Norman got signed and not sorry he is gone.

    Ooooweee Dunbar wants to be traded!

    So let me get this straight. An undrafted free agent converted from WR to CB who has injury issues and is under contract for another year thinks that one of the highest priorities of a completely new coaching staff with all of the restructuring of the coaching staff and front office (within the first 6 weeks of all that) was to contact him to see how he felt about his contract. Give me a break. Sounds like in his journey from undrafted free agent to starting CB also included becoming a diva.
  5. Good luck to you and thank you. For an offense that was pretty ugly over the past few years, no fault of yours, you sir were a bright spot.

    Serious Question: Do you regret letting Cousins go?

    Kirk's problem is between his ears. He looked like a deer in the headlights from the opening kick. The moments of really big games are just to big for him. It's like he freezes. Unlikely he will ever get over it. Hope the Vikes like that $30 mill they are paying for an occasional wild card win.

    !!!!0mgz!!!! Trent Williams finally showed up

    I will give him some credit for probably at least be partially responsible for Snyder moving on from Allen. Based on the fact that Allen is now gone and we have moved on from the old coaching staff, this is a new beginning. Based on his history of being injured and missing 4 or so games a year, the fact that he tapped out on his teammates over some dispute with the team doctor his words not mine, and the fact that he has not played for a year, I personally would not be upset if we move on. And I certainly would not give him a 3 year extension at some ungodly number based on his injury history over the last several years.

    2020 Hopeful Optimism Thread

    I am fine with your positivity but your post would have been stronger if you left off 3, 4, 5, and 7. They are all huge stretches to be a positives.
  10. They just interviewed juli and she did not say he had been hired as the coach. In fact they were speculating as to if he was interviewing with other teams. What she did say was he would be meeting with Dan on Monday.
  11. He may very well be the next coach but just for the record that is not what she said.

    The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    I would seriously question Alex Smith's mental analysis capacity if he retired and forfeited $20 mill in exchange for a front office job at what maybe a mill a year. Why would he do that?

    Our defense is confused.

    And to make their woodshed visit even worse, they played a 3 - 11 awful football team at home. So today you have the best offensive player on the opposing team and their scheme is well we will just not cover him at all. Tight ends and running backs make big plays in the passing game against this defense EVERY game. And most of the time its not that they get beat, they are just left running free in the secondary.
  14. It won't matter. The defense is horrible. As soon as the offense started playing better the defense mailed it in. 37 points last week against a team literally playing with receivers off the street and this week 41 points to a 3-11 basement of the NFL team. Two number one picks on the defensive line and simply got gashed all day long. It was embarrassing. And don't tell me oh we had injuries. Eagles had injuries last week and it didn't stop them last week or this week.

    The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    News media got all of you worked up over the last 2 days saying a big announcement was coming yesterday and then after it did not show up yesterday then it was today. Just proves they don't know anymore than anyone else. Sports media people are just like other news people. Unrealiable blow hards.
