    2019 Redskins Training Camp/Preseason Thread

    Redskins have a lower amount than average of nationally televised games in the regular season, too, if I remember correctly. I guess if ratings and attendance are down locally then why would national audience care?

    Best post I've seen in this forum for awhile

    2019 Redskins Training Camp/Preseason Thread

    Two separate tweets, one from Benjamin Albright and another from Patriots beat reporter, are saying trading for Trent is being discussed with other teams. Couple this with Penn saying he wanted to play for a team he could start for and spoke with Trent before signing, tell me that moving Trent in a trade is probably in the works. Please lets get a more than few teams bidding for his services so the asking price gets driven up. On a side note, I love TW as a player and would love to see him play for the Pats and contend for a Super Bowl.
  4. Being able to attend camp the past couple of seasons, although with a newborn in the house I skipped this year, I've always come away impressed with how Doctson looks. But, the season starts and he's just a "meh" player. I don't think he's awful, I actually think he'll have a fairly long career by NFL standards, but will probably bounce from team to team after he leaves here.

    The times I've gone to camp the last few years, I've always been impressed by how smooth he looks doing almost anything. Too bad he's just a mediocre WR on gamedays. That being said, I'm really hoping the new WR's show us something.

    There's a pic I've seen a lot of of Allen and Payne in full uniform sitting at their lockers, and both of their legs look enormous. You can see why they're such impressive athletes. Allen is my fave Skins player, besides Trent, these days.

    Wear light clothing, bring lots of water if permitted, and have a large hat for shade. The hat thing is weird but there is no shade where the fans sit and watch and it can get brutally hot.
  8. Your point about the young core is a good one and getting ahead of the market and trading him is imperative based on that. His trade value plummets each day he isn't in camp. Even more when stories about how unhappy he is to play here and any of the leverage they might have in a trade is gone. I believe Trent could fetch some decent draft value.
  9. I usually have a firm grasp on expectations I may have for one position group or another but the WR's are the most baffling to me. I think Trey Quinn could have Jarvis Landry-esque production but he can't seem to stay healthy. Richardson's health gives me the same pause, even though I think he would produce if he played. I'm disregarding Doctson just because I don't, and have never, thought he was good enough to be a starting #1 or #2 WR. McLaurin is the only rookie I have strong feelings about and that is mainly because he's a special teams menace which pretty much guarantees a prominent spot on the active game day roster. This will be an interesting few weeks for sure.
  10. I thought this was a Montez Sweat thread? J/k Anyways, Kerrigan is a good player but no one would argue he is elite. Edge rusher is the most important position besides QB, IMO. If Sweat fulfills his athletic potential at edge rusher, it would change the entire dynamic of the defense, much like an improvement at QB would affect the offense.
  11. Carriker is an awful comp to Flowers because Carriker, while not a dominant player by any means, showed he could actually play in this league when he was with the Rams. Flowers hasn't shown he even belongs on a pro roster in any capacity. And it does cost a roster spot and salary cap space.
  12. Completely agree if he's ever flashed any talent. All he's shown is that he can't play in the NFL at all. It isn't that he's disappointed in regards to where he was drafted, it's that he is he isn't competent enough to be on a roster according to my eyeballs and EVERY Giants fan when speaking of him. If Bill Callahan can get this scrub to legitimately earn his way on to the roster, than he is an effing coaching genius.
  13. It costs someone younger and cheaper a roster spot for a guy that hasn't just disappointed, but appears to not be able to play at this level. Yeah, but who cares about practice reps at Camp Jay, anyway.
  14. But he was and is a terrible pro football player so who cares where he was drafted. Draft stock is completely irrelevant this many years into a pro career.
  15. Kinda like the optimism some have for Flowers. He's never been good, and I'm not sure why anyone would feel otherwise.
