    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.

    The Skins Can't Win With These Coaches

    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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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?
  9. 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.
  10. It is the Giants opinion to let him walk. Don't you think they know more about him than BA after having him on their team for 3 years when he was injured in 2 of those years and did not finish the season. He is a flawed player and that is from the Giant brass.
  11. Only problem is that Collins is not a blue chip player. He cannot cover to save his ass. Last year the nats asked him to cover and he got destroyed, eaten alive, plus he got hurt the last 2 years. Way way too much money. BA still showing us how much of a dumb ass he is. We had little FA money and he blows it on a one dimensional safety when the market is flooded. Now if the Skins have some plan that the rest of the league does not have then fine but everyone in the know in the NY area that has watched LC play the last 2 years is laughing at this move. Cheers. Hope you still feel the same in about 10 months. Cheers.

    The Cult of Case

    Just wondering are we trying to lower our cap by getting Keenum and then cutting Colt?
  13. My thoughts are that L Collins is a box safety and if you play that kind of D then fine, get him but do not expect him to cover and not at big money. He has a good rep in the locker room but he has been hurt the last 2 years and the rep around NY is that he is reclining.
  14. Hope it is not us. I would not take either of the Steelers WR or RB even if they paid me. Raiders, please take him and L Collins.
  15. You do not want Collins for big money. He is good at the LOS but he sucks at coverage. Ask yourself, why would the nats let a Pro bowl player walk. Cheers
  16. Hi all. You DO NOT WANT L Collins at big money. He CANNOT cover to save his a-s. He can't cover backs or tight ends. He is good at the los but other than that he is a waste. Do you think the nats are letting him go because he is great? Add the fact he has been on IR the last 2 yrs and has not finished both seasons.

    Watching the NFL playoffs

    Just curious, heard on tv that goat Brady threw the ball 90 times in the 2 playoff games and he had zero sacks and 3 hurries out of 90 attempts. That is 5 linemen blocking 450 times without a sack or holding call by line not made up of all pros but by average drafted players against a team that led the league in sacks. Think the Pats are just lucky or did the refs overlook some holding calls?

    Terminate Manusky

    Dick LeBeau HOF
  19. Who does that? A lot of teams have done that. One that comes to mind is the beloved Dallas Cowboys. Jerry purposely flew in fat Bill Parcells before the season was over and fatboy had to come to a meeting to get the HC job while the existing coach was still in the building. Think it was Wade if I remember. Fat Bill loved doing stuff like this.
  20. Remember it well. Wish we could duplicate it today. Even after the devestating death of Lombardi, EBW went and plucked GHA. Wish EBW was running the show today. Guy had brains and balls.

    Watching the NFL playoffs

    Take notice as the Rams ran the ball down the boys throats and I am hoping Guice and AP will do the same. Also the Rams have the same guys playing the O line every game and every down all season. How many games have our O line starters missed last season. The Eagles are a legit playoff team and we are not with a 4th string QB and guys off the street playing on both sides of the ball so how could we ruin their playoff run? Alex Smith is not elite but he is better than Colt or Sanchez and we have a better chance with him. I never was a A.S. fan but we were in first place when he was in.

    Good to see K. Fuller playing well while we pay elite money to a QB who is not elite and who most likely will suck all our cap money and may never be able to play. Good job bruce.

    Redskins Cut DJ Swearinger!

    Well, not the way I would have handled it. You have to pay a price for shooting your mouth off about the boss but I think for a first offense, you give a fine and a few game suspension. Bring the player and his agent for a talk and remind him his job is to play and not coach. If you had a team loaded with superstars and you were a super bowl team then I could see us ditching the guy but we do not have that luxury as we need every good player we can get. Merry Christmas all.
