    Why are we this bad on the field?

    Like this a lot and I do not have any stats and just writing what I see is that to me it seems our D is overworked. When your O just gets 3 and outs over and over your D gets broken down and in the end cannot stop anyone. Seems almost every team we play has some guy getting a record setting day against us. Is it because our D is overworked or poor coaching or weak players are all 3?

    Why are we this bad on the field?

    That is it in a nutshell and the main reason for this is bad drafting and even worse bad free agent signings and trades. Add poor coaching and you get a losing team. Look at all the awesome running backs in the league and we draft a guy who has played in what, one game and the rest of his 2 years on IR. How about the great drafts by SM. Is anyone he drafted, besides Sheriff, still on the team and Sheriff was a reach. I am serious but the bad drafts started with Desmond Howard and the continue to this day. The RG3 thing was a fiasco and a mistake that will haunt you for 10 years. Look at the bad FA signings and trades like Smith, and McNab, AH and prime time and Arch. Just take a look at the good teams in baseball like the Yanks or Astros. They have good players period and even if we get a good guy we let him walk and we don't get anything for him. The Astros are not that good but they are smart enough to put 3 Cy Young award winners on their team and they play good D. We have no award winning players and we stink on D. Look back in our history and we were only good a few years out of the last 50 and the one thing that those good teams had in common was coaching. Starting with VL, then to GHA then to JJG. Look at that one draft we had with JJG. We got like 5 great players in one draft. Did we get 5 great players in all the drafts combined in the last 5 years? List goes on and on. Cheers.

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

    Sound advise but how many times have we heard about guys signing contracts and after a few years want to renegotiate if someone else makes more than them. If TW did not like Bruce or the team then why didn't he pick up his chips and find a new game instead of signing?

    Hi all. Can someone please explain to me if TW is getting paid for all this time off in the past and looking forward and how does this effect our cap? Thank you.

    The Skins Can't Win With These Coaches

    You have to give Haskins a few years anyway so I would be trying to pick up as many high picks as I can. My thinking is that you are never going to rebuild fast enough just getting the 15th or 16th pick as all the other teams are doing the same if not better as they are better drafting teams. I would be unloading as many of the older vets as I could for draft picks now. Play the young guys. I am sick of Jay winning some meaningless games down the stretch that cost us draft capital. No more 85mil dollar safeties either. The nats passed on him and the guy they replaced him with was head and shoulders better today.

    Depends on if you have the first overall pick, you try and find some team dumb enough, like the Redskins were with RG3, that will give you 3 #1s and a 2nd, then you trade the pick. Remember #1 top picks demand big money. You can rebuild your team with smart lower #1 picks especially if you have lots of them.

    Next Coach?

    I would try to hire someone from a winning organization like Josh Mc Daniels if I could not get a bonified HC with a winning record.

    That's what happens when you draft a guard with the 5th overall pick. Now you have to pay him as he can say "you took me with the 5th pick so you must think I am that good." Another SM screw up.

    Please forget the stupid trades and the high payouts for free agents. This team is not a contender. You just played 2 contending teams and you got pushed all over the field and they are not even the best. Wait till you play the Pats. It is not even about coaching, the teams in our division are much better than us and we are not going to catch them by paying 85 mil to a safety. Did he do anything the last 2 games? Dan and Bruce get your head out of your butt. The management has to realize we should be rebuilding. Get rid of TW and Norman and anyone that does not want to be here, for as high a draft choice as you can get. Loose as many games as pos and hopefully get the top pick in the draft. Trade that pick for as many #1s as you can get. That is the way to build a team. It is going to take forever trying to build getting the 15th pick every year as your team deteriates faster than your building program. You need multiple high picks not a 15 this year and a 17 next year and so on and on. Cheers.

    Game Day Thread - Cow****es at Redskins

    In case some of you missed it, Steve Smith said Jay is trying to get fired and can't wait to join his bro in Oakland. Hope he is right, can't take any more of him. Cheers all.

    Where do you think Jay Gruden and Greg Manusky rank?

    Same way I feel. From the start I never thought Jay was a championship coach. Seems like when you were in school and you were a nerd and you started dating the hottest babe in the school and you knew you were overmatched but you were going to milk it for all it was worth. Jay is overmatched and he is milking it for all it is worth as he knows like we know that he is not a big time NFL head coach but he keeps getting paid so he hangs on. GHA used to say that the talent is not much different from team to team, it is the coaching that makes the difference. Cheers.

    2019 Comprehensive Draft Thread

    Right on. Every person in the know is saying Rosen is worth a 3 and pos a late 2. No way is anyone giving up a 1 for him. Word in NY talk shows are that the Giants are after him but only for a 3. Would we be interested in him just after picking up a vet QB?
  13. Stop it, you are paying a box safety shut down corner money when you are strapped and you are going to say the Giants brass does not know what THEY are doing? LC wanted 11mil from the Giants and they let him walk and we threw 14 on him. Guess you think Andy R does not know what he is doing either. On the other side if you get the guy from 3-4 years ago then maybe it is not that bad but he has had injury prob the last 2 years and he was not playing up to his first 2 years ability. Time will tell but right now, IMO we overpaid for a flawed player.
