    part of me feels like that sort of drive and focus is something a person tends to have or doesn't.

     

    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.

    We all get it, you hate Haskins. Not sure what dude did to you personally.

     

    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 :)

    There isn't any.

     

    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)

     


  4. 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 ....

  5. 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

  6. 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

    Again let's recap what I said. I said I cant fathom how you think drafting herbert is smart...beneficial to the team (passing all those way higher tier level prospects) and is a waste of a first round pick cause one first round pick Is gonna be on the bench. Right? Ok...now you say it wouldkt be hard for herbert or any other guy to come in and surpass haskins numbers (reasonable logic granted I saw major improvement and so did the coaches...and believe me I was calling haskins out early to my friends) ...so if that is the case..why would you spend ANOTHER first round pick on a qb when u can simply SIGN one that can play better. (And that's debateable...cause case wasnt all that hot neither)  that would 1) allow the investment of a first round pick to a more impact player 2) allows a first round pick to grow...

     

    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.. 😃

    I'm not dismissive of what he sees in herbert...I dont even know him outside of his name...haven't bothered to watch him. I'm dismissive of the idea that this would be a good thing which was highlighted by me going on my mini tangent on no matter what its not a good idea. Lol. 

     

    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.

    So clearly you are not a fan of Haskins. What could Haskins do to win you over? Or are you one of those not a fan, never will be? 

     

    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.

    . I fully expect to read an agenda riddled post full of incompetence.

     

    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!

    Giants: Might be the closest to us with a rookie QB, but honestly, Haskins has looked better

     

    ????  I wish that were the case but thats just an inaccurate statement.  Daniel Jones more than doubled "simba" total QBR at a paltry 53.6 over 26.4 - DJ threw twice the # of touchdowns to interceptions (24/12) while dannys boy "simba" went even (which is horrendous in todays NFL) (7/7).  Giants looks like they could have someone that could develop into a serviceable starter and we have a project with huge question marks on heart, commitment, and ability to process the NFL game.   Give 30 other teams the choice between the two and 30 teams take Jones, and its not even close.

    I don't want Montae back. Between the fighting and dying I think we have seen enough.  Yes someone got drugged up at his house and died and he didn't call 911, and drugs were found in his house afterwards. Oh those, those were hers rings kind of shallow after being afraid to call 911. If the league wants a drug testing policy, maybe it should include testing those after high profile drug related events occur within their homes.

     

    A fine example you set. I hope RR is made aware of all his issues.

     

    This dude is a straight human stain and I have a hard time supporting any org that employs him

  13. Just to parrot how good it is that Bruce Allen is gone, 49ers are gonna play for the super bowl w/ a coach we couldnt use, rams played with a coach we couldnt use and the Chiefs will play leveraging resources they fleeced us for a mediocre QB who will never play again.  bruce is the worst

    But even if you told me we could have Simmons + 18 + 37 I’m not sure I would take that 

     

     

    I would take that in a heartbeat, Simmons could be as good or better than Young in the pros, seems to have a good demeanour and you get 18 and 37, sign me up :)

  15. can anyone translate the JDR tweet for me?  Is he taking a dig at the previous coaching staff while molly coddling "Simba" ?  If so, I am obv not on board w/ that - throwing 50 TD's in college is irrelevant, look at the list of guys who have done it and you see several NFL busts.  He had known attitude and commitment issues last year as noted by multiple members of the coaching staff - handing him praise just because he "threw in" when he got his way (starting qb) is reinforcing bad behavior.  If we hadnt drafted a project headcase the staff would not have to play these mental games just to keep him invested, what a debacle DANNY BOY - thanks a bunch for another trash move causing organizational friction.  

     

    What I wouldnt give for Burrow.

    I argued that if KOC was the hire it was due to meddling. Albert Breer stated that Turner was the target from the beginning. Meaning Ron didn’t want KOC from the start. If he was kept it would have been because of meddling which is 100% accurate.

     

     

    spot on analysis, as usual SCS

    Nobody wants to work with Haskins in all likelihood including KOC. So we have to wait for someone really desperate... 😂

     

     

    I know this was said in jest but probably some truth to it, we know Danny is going to hamstring the staff with his chosen one and the body of work is NOT good and there are known work ethic and attitude issues.  Would I want to strap my cart to that horse knowing when it goes wrong, Danny will roll on me rather than admit his pick was a turd?  Nahhhhhhhhh

    With Bruce canned and Kirk celebrating a playoff win - I would say karma exists. Class defeated sleaze.

     

    I like that !! Loved watching Kirk do his catchphrase and seeing his strong leadership and his team rally around him.  He always showed well here even with the absolutely toxic disgusting atmosphere created by our POS front office.  I LIKE THAT KIRK!
