    The { Possibly } Sweetest Game Of The Year

    They've been competitive with good teams at times. I think the vast majority of people would like to see competitive football first. A hope, glimmer that Sundays can have positive outcomes consistently. We've been 4-19 versus eventual playoff teams, since 2015. The only reasons we won the division in '15, was because the NFC East was terrible, and we had a super favorable schedule. 2019: Undetermined 2018: 1-6 vs playoff teams (W: Dallas; L: Indy, NO, Houston, Dallas, Philly x2) 2017: 1-5 vs playoff teams (W: LA Rams; L: Philly x2, KC, Minn, NO) 2016: 2-5 vs playoff teams (W: NYG, GB; L: Pit, Dallas x2, Det, NYG) 2015: 0-3 vs playoff teams (L: NE, Carolina, GB)

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

    You're talking ancient history...stuff from three seasons ago. I was speculating on the point when Trent went from being franchise player, to persona non grata. And it wouldn't shock me in the least, if it occurred when Trent got the second opinion, and then had a surgery the team didn't want him to have. It couldn't have been a realization that Trent was on the downside of his career...when they're still considering Kerrigan untouchable. Something had to have soured between them, for them to just refuse contract talks outright after the season. They wouldn't have paid him top money in the first place. FO is constantly in touch with reps. They talk throughout the season, offseason meetings, combines. Trent made it a point of mentioning in his latest interview that Bruce ignored his calls/texts the day of the trade deadline.

    I'd be willing to bet money that the root cause of the FO's ire, is Trent getting the second opinion, then surgery on his thumb which forced him to miss games last season. Trent's reps are in constant communication with the FO, everyone knew the offseason was a logical point in his contract to resume talks. For the FO to act like it was out of the blue, was rich.

    Do the Redskins have a future guard in Flowers?

    He isn't my guy. But the idea of Bruce replacing 4 starting linemen in one offseason appeals to me even less. With the exception of Roullier, all of them were prone to mental errors, and mistakes. Since Jay was shown the door, all five guys have appeared on PFF's Team of the Week (which equates to them earning the highest grade at their position for the week). The salary cap is not going to be a constraint for the team in 2020. If this unit continues to improve through the end of the season, I'd be all for keeping them in tact, if possible. There's plenty of other places on the team that will need attention. If the FO cuts Moses, we're pretty much pigeonholed into taking a T with our top pick, if Penn actually retires.

    Next Day Thread: Redskins vs. Panthers

    It'd be absolutely stupid to tag him at $15 M/ year, but refuse to offer him what you'd be paying anyways. The Redskins window for negotiation has probably closed on that one. He's in the unique situation of having his tag lumped in with a bunch of other positions. So he gets to benefit from the top 5 salaries of all O-linemen. If you don't want to pay him $15 M, why tag him? All it does is put the onus on Bruce to get value for him. If anything, they ought to transition tag him.

    Curious timing on that. Last week (vs the Lions) Moses finished as the highest ranked player on both teams, per PFF. He didn't have any penalties then, or Sunday before he injured his back. Best game he's had in over two seasons. Do you really trust this FO to competently replace 4 linemen in one offseason? All of our linemen have issues with penalties, outside of the guy snapping the ball. The fact that it's happening less is probably due to Callahan abandoning Gruden's kitchen sink approach to run concepts.

    Not Scherff? So you're expecting teams to be lining up to pay Flowers $15/M a year this offseason? Scherff hasn't been consistent, or healthy, but PFF still has him ranked as the #3 G at run blocking. Roullier has quietly put a solid season together as well. Doesn't commit penalties, and does his job well. Again, Flowers is playing waaaay better than anyone could've predicted. I put him in the same tier as Penn and Moses. They all show flashes of great play, but lack consistency.

    No he hasn't. He just hasn't been as terrible as we all thought he would be. There's a huge difference between the two.

    The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    What has he been negotiating, really? They have two choices for a new stadium at this point, Loudoun or London. The whole idea of igniting a bidding war to host the team has all but disappeared..and I also think the fact that they're a terrible team doesn't help either. At this point, what strategic advantage is there to employ Bruce for a job he's not showing progress on, while also actively ruining football operations? I'm not sure why Bruce even deserves the end of the season for that review. The results of this season are squarely on his shoulders. Low attendance, bad football...he can't point the finger at anyone else.

    Next Day Thread: Redskins vs. Lions

    I'd be interested to know how much of the run scheme has changed since Jay was canned. I felt like Jay tried to do too much with formations and concepts. Even now, they're still inconsistent across the board. At this point, I'm chalking up positive performances more to favorable individual match ups than any break through in play.

    Next Day Thread: Redskins vs. Lions

    Just to steer it back to bout Morgan Moses?! He made PFF's team of the week with a 84.2 grade! That's him in a nutshell. He has performances like this every so often that make you wonder what he could be if he could put it together consistently.
  12. I don't think the next coach would be able to unilaterally decide that, unless he's bringing his own GM. This team has too many holes to even consider taking using another 1st on a QB at this point. We could certainly use a bookend LT, a generational edge rusher, or a top talent at virtually anywhere. We aren't a QB away from contention. Really the next decision point for Haskins is whether he's worth an extension, and/or the fifth year tag. Other than that, there's no rush to be right about what kind of QB he is. Not sure why everyone wants to be first to declare what he is. Wait until he becomes the limitation of the offense running.

    Josh Norman a healthy scratch!

    He could have incentives based upon being on the active roster (theoretically tied to him being available/healthy). *Just checked* he has a $31,250/game bonus. And maybe the team feels they owe him that, but not if he's going to literally not move on ST plays.

    Josh Norman a healthy scratch!

    Let's not forget that Norman played his way into being useless on the field. I'm hoping he isn't collecting more of a check for that abysmal effort on STs. The team doesn't owe him that. In fact, they should be looking at STs guys that may be of use after this season.

    Josh Norman a healthy scratch!

    Disagree. They had no obligation to keep him active. A borderline STer would have given this play or two his all, in hopes of making a play, or flashing on film. Instead we get this: I wonder if his contract had any escalators for being active?
