  1. Agree - heart and desire is not a "learned" trait, you either have it or you dont. In fact when those that don't try to act like they have that type of moxie, it comes across as turd-ish - probably why you saw the lineman looking like someone cut the nastiest fart ever when Simba was trying to "rally" them or whatever that display was.
  2. Understand your contention of my assertion; lets revisit around game 8 of next season
  3. My point is more along the lines of the Redskins make A LOT of mistakes, like immense numbers of embarrassing and incompetent moves - however, ref: the article saying they are "ruining" this QB, I just dont see it. I see a lot of other reasons he is a failure, but I do not think the team played into the result heavily (beyond making the mistake of the pick, which is a different discussion on owner meddling). I am hard pressed to ever defend the team management but in this case, I think the criticism is a bit misplaced. Hope that makes more sense
  4. So silly - he was going to bust out of the league no matter who took him, the Redskins just have a way of accelerating a players demise. For once I would say the Redskins are not to blame here
  5. If you cant see the difference in the messaging between Coach (<paraphase>Hey, Alex is in the building too, we are going to see what we got and go from there, best man wins) and Doug (<paraphrasing> I think this coaching staff KNOWS DH is the starter here) I dont know what to tell you. If its a good cop bad cop skit as alluded to above - and I've stated this before - if we drafted someone so mentally immature and unstable that they have to play these constant mental games, then we def made a huge mistake (spoiler alert, we made a HUGE mistake)
  6. Doug Williams needs to shut his trap, seriously he makes a fool of himself every time he opens his mouth, he is a liability who is being kept around out of charity and legacy and not what he offers the organization. What happened to there being a one voice, coach centric culture? At minimum, he is undermining the coach and completely out of line, or his facts are just plain wrong and no one has been "anointed" the starter? This is exactly the type of dumb contradictory communications coach was brought in to stymie. If anyone is "sure" that "Simba" is the starter after putting up some of the worst stats of any quarterback in the NFL last year they need to have their head checked.. Oh Doug ....
  7. By all accounts, Mr. Davis did it right - pure class all the way, wishing him all the best in his next ventures..

    What Offer Would Change Your Mind on Trading Down???

    Random thought, if we stay and take Young this would be the fourth year in a row we used our first round pick on a DL/EDGE (not counting the Haskins debacle; we still took Sweat in the 1st) - that has to take its toll on the talent across the rest of the team - if you get a silly offer to get a ton of pieces, you have to take it

    It really depends how much you trust this structure for scouting and college evaluation. Assuming Burrow goes to CIN (if he doesnt you take him without any hesitation) a RG3 type trade of multiple firsts (and second(s)) over a pass rusher is a no brainer from a pure statistical value standpoint. That said, you have to have a talent evaluation team in place who can actually land on some or most of those picks. If your eval is trash then the team should probably just make the safe lower value move (in this hypothetical scenario) and take Young
  10. Completely respect the argument, and I generally agree, I am not a huge Herbet guy (having only watched a couple games) but I do not believe that the current solution is a good one. I would be more inclined to bring in a savvy vet (assuming Alex cant go) who can really compete for the job, which per leaks it sounds like that is the direction RR might head. That said, if we were to trade down and have multiple first round or early second round picks and a QB is there who RR grades as a top level talent, I dont think we desecrate him for pulling the trigger on it..
  11. Respectfully, you kind of are dismissive when you use language like "Just go bro" (whatever that means), followed by text dripping with condescension. Anyone who has looked at the Redskins QB with a objective eye has major doubts about his ability to compete in the NFL, and the OP likes what he sees in a (slightly) less touted college QB. Based on the raw numbers the Redskins QB posted last year, it wont be too hard for Herbert or any of these other guys to top him and obviously there are lots of people with major concerns about his intangibles.
  12. Someone else - Haskins should be the backup and we find a real starting QB
  13. Thats correct - I dont think hes the answer and I dont like any of his intangibles. I think the big reason he had alot of detractors is that he is the pinnacle of Danny meddling. It is well known that Jay and the talent team did not have him graded as a first round but were overruled by the FO, the placated by giving up this years #2 to get Sweat. Then he comes in and, honestly, made a fool of himself on many occasions (too many to document) and had very very well documented commitment issues (again signaling entitlement). Im a hard sell on the guy at this point, but a quiet camp (from an incident standpoint) and a productive 2020 where we see quality QB play and most of all true grit and heart, I could be turned.
  14. Respectfully, just facts and stats - you can wrap them with as many excuses as you like, but they are indisputable and the ultimate measure of logic. simba was at the bottom of basically every measurable statistic for a QB in the NFL, almost off the charts bad in several. Below Daniel Jones, below Minshew Mania, below almost any other QB that started a game. By all accounts this pick came directly from the owner who has gotten exactly zero right in his entire NFL ownership career, what makes anyone think he got this right? Oh, and we crippled ourselves in this draft to do it because he had to appease Jay who wanted to draft Sweat, who is also looking like he may not pan out as a first round level talent. Honestly, does ANYONE think if the Redskins GM (....) offered DH for DJ straight up to the Giants tomorrow they would accept - of course not!
