    Evaluating Jay Gruden in 2018

    Josh Johnson given the RG3 playbook. Sanchez should finish this sh**show. If Johnson does bad, he'll take some of the blame off Sanchez's plate; if he does well, they'll say it was because the Giants played soft. I agree with what the poster said above, bad look on Gruden.

    Who should be the next head coach for the Skins

    It's funny when I see people mention the likes of Saban, McCarthy, and Harbaugh as if any quality coach would ever come here. When's the last time we brought in someone who wasn't in over their head, a burned-out retread, or a former retiree? The word is out. No one of worth or of character would ever find this organization a desirable place in which to work, especially alongside personnel known for putting us in precarious quarterback situations (RG3/Snyder; Kirk Cousins contract; Alex Smith contract).

    Evaluating Jay Gruden in 2018

    The truth is the head coaching position in Washington isn't as sought after by quality candidates as some of us think. Hasn't been for a while. We get retreads, retirees, or severely underqualified people walking through those doors. Josh McDaniels wouldn't come here, Mike McCarthy wouldn't, hell not even Harbaugh would, just bums looking to add "HC" to their resumes or seeking a big payout. We'd have no problem luring the likes of Dirk Koetter or Hue Jackson to this place. One of the first 9 teams in the NFL reduced to this, can't believe it.
  5. Doesn't matter. It's a culture problem. And it all starts from the top. Snyder has failed to promote a culture of accountability in the organization. Until the right culture pervades the walls, the front office, the locker room, success will be marginal and fleeting. You can hire Bill Belichick in his prime and he'd be more stunted here than when he was in old Cleveland. Winning only cures all when those victories are cultivated in the right soil or environment like seeds, otherwise they eventually whither from neglect.

    The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    Eventually, every businessman has to answer for shoddy products or services, especially in a contested market.

    The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    Bruce Allen is done, as is Jay. Someone like Mike McCarthy getting axed in the middle of the season by one of the league's standardbearers has set the stage and has also undoubtedly triggered a sense of worry and deep self-appraisal among other coaches insofar as their own achievements in relation to his. Bruce thinks he's protected because of his legacy here and because of his involvement with whatever stadium shenanigans in which Snyder has him embroiled, but regardless of his influence in this organization it is all peripheral. At the end of the day, you don't let the ground fall out from beneath your feet: Wins, filled-seats, ratings, and reputation are all that matter. Goodbye, Bruce and Jay. If your demise isn't apparent by next week when we host New York, it'll be painfully obvious in the season-ender.
  8. Fans boo because the only thing connecting us is our collective misery and it'll take a series of impressive wins to convince us to abandon the one glue that holds us together.

    What is Wrong with Alex Smith?

    Let's see. O-line already decimated. Our first round WR is unreliable. Jordan Reed, our biggest receiving weapon, was on the bench. Every other weapon is either old, untalented, or too raw for someone of Alex's limited caliber to exploit to their full abilities. Our defense is incapable of handling offenses that specialize on mismatches and is more suited against teams reliant on more conventional attacks predicated on the raw talent of their weapons. Lastly, our QB has demonstrated that he's prone to critical lapses of judgment, from stopping the clock in the Dallas game to running out of bounds behind the line of scrimmage instead of throwing the ball away to NOT running out of bounds sooner before getting trucked by a defender, and from this one can only surmise as to the number of smaller, less obvious mistakes he might be committing in the course of games.

    Evaluating Jay Gruden in 2018

    We have a Jeff Fisher for a HC, the Jeff Fisher of presidents, and the Jeff Fisher of NFL owners. Not a lot of franchises can pull off a trifecta of Jeff Fishers but we've managed to overcome those odds.

    Evaluating Jay Gruden in 2018

    I want Gruden gone before we draft our next franchise QB. Feel bad for saying this, but I don't want him contaminating our rookies next season. In fact, I want all the Tampa goons gone, even Doug if it comes down to it. Â Snyder -- well, we can't do anything about that.

    Redskins to sign Adrian Peterson per NFL.com

    Looking forward to seeing him put a whipping on the 'boys.

    The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    I think everyone will be able to read between the lines if Bruce were to be "reassigned" elsewhere following another lackluster year. He'll likely leave altogether by that point, rather than being a glorified landlord.
  14. A lot of D.C. residents are recent arrivals or transients, removed from the original family base where members (typically grand elders) are traditionally called upon to help rear children. Without the old family structure for support, there's a demand for children assistance and it's only going to get worse until the city sees a rise in multi-generational households.

    The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    Doug has always been a smokescreen hire. The guy was sitting on the couch before his buddy Bruce called and gave him a job here, and people thought Bruce was just going to hand him over the keys or have the brother ride shotgun? Doug deserves better than this circus and should go elsewhere, but if he's okay with all of this and is just here for the paycheck, then his ass needs to be canned too alongside Bruce and every other con man/crook complicit in this ****show.
  16. You might as well stick with the 'Skins all the way and wear this misery like a badge of honor. Besides, even if Minnesota wins the Super Bowl, you'll never feel all the way good celebrating, like cheering at your step-son's Harvard graduation while knowing your estranged firstborn is still attending NA meetings.

    Redskins receiving corp is beginning to shape up

    We don't have a single #1 receiver here. Our WR corps consists of 2's and 3's. Our star tight end can't stay healthy and our pass catching RB is hurt. Alex Smith had young and explosive probowlers for weapons in KC, we got JAGs or injury proned players. He went from the penthouse to the outhouse by choosing to come here.
  18. After his first practice with us when he realizes we don't have a Kelce, Hunt, or Hill to throw to I fully expect to run into him at a local tavern some point this Fall, slumped over the bar.

    The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    Bruce Allen would eat him alive. This hypothetical President of Football Operations would be too involved with his job, too busy making the team a winner to see the knife driving towards his back. This isn't a front office where a true football man can survive much less thrive with cutthroats and politicians infesting its halls.

    The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    1. Redskins Legacy? Check. 2. Has corporate experience? Check. 3. Strong network and ties in the league? Check. 4. Political connections in the Metro area? Check. Honestly, I don't think he really needs to know football to keep his job. Given Snyder's history, the idea of hiring someone strictly for their football experience and acumen is a concept totally absurd to him, like the idea of promoting the in-house guy with the most experience over the outside hire in a better looking suit who can quote Marcel Proust and goes skiing in Gstaad on the 12th hour of every Winter Solstice.

    Alex Smith Trade Thread (Details Inside)

    KC doesn't want to play for this trash heap franchise and some of us seem hellbent to vilify his actions as if there's no justification for them. As fans we know this team is dumpster fire so imagine the horrors he's witnessed and had to suffer firsthand as a player, now we're talking about tagging him and handcuffing him further to the rails of the titanic for draft picks as if additional selections will somehow inoculate this organization from its disease.

    Alex Smith Trade Thread (Details Inside)

    You've convinced me. Now all we need is a probowl WR, running back, and tight end. We'll be in the wildcard game in no time.

    Alex Smith Trade Thread (Details Inside)

    He's been in the league for 13 years. He's had a better supporting cast than what we'd be offering him and he hasn't done much with it outside of wildcard appearances. What makes you think he can do better here? We don't have a Hunt, we don't have a Hill, and we certainly don't have a Travis Kelce.

    Alex Smith Trade Thread (Details Inside)

    We didn't have to trade for Alex. We're not an Alex Smith away from a SB. We could have groomed a QB under McCoy or someone cheaper, without losing a 3rd round pick, without losing Fuller. This was a desperation move.
