  1. From the jump I have thought Haskins had piss poor body language - was clearly not truly excited about coming here based on the non scripted footage from draft night.  Obviously the Kevin O video is highly edited but I think the most interesting moment happens around 2:30, its the only time in the video he goes to try to actually make a correction and Haskins turns away from him, does not look him in the eye and is essentially acting dismissive.  I think overall this is a kid who is acting extremely entitled for doing absolutely nothing in the NFL, will be interesting to watch it all unfold.

    Is it just me that thinks Haskins was so underwhelmed about becoming a Washington Redskin.

    No your absolutely right - if you watch the video when he gets the call it is clear this was not a preferred destination for him.  He rolls his eyes and the female next to him recoils and puckers her lips.  Of course once they know the cameras are on its all (fake) smiles, but in his super low energy way- nothing genuine about this at all.  Everything about his body language thru the course of the evening screamed entitled bratty lazy and def. not a leader of a NFL franchise.

    50td only 8 picks in over 500 attempts, against top 25 defenses 6-0 20 td and 2nts.  are you looking at his tape? or do you have a personal grudge against him?

     

    College stats do not translate to the NFL - breaking down each comment, each is anchored in facts.

     

    fat - yes

    slow - 5. something 40  - fact

    lazy/body language - watch the moment he gets called by the redskins the way the female next to him recoils and puckers her lips and he rolls his eyes.  Then his low energy moving forward. 

     

    Ill bet you a dime this dumpster is out of the league in 5 years.

  4. So I obviously agree that the entire Football OPS department needs to be cleaned out, I am not sure why Doug Williams gets a pass from some people, maybe its nostalgia or something to that effect, but I do not see that he has done anything special in his entire career as a talent evaluator type.  He did manage to make a fool of himself and this franchise with his statements on at least a few occasions.  And seriously, how does human stain Tony Wylie still have a job, what does he have on these guys;  this team is just a constant cycle of PR blunders.

     

    I also think Kyle Smith and the college scouting department get way too much of a pass.  Take a look at the draft history of any of the teams that are really competing today (throw the Steelers in there as well as a every year contender).  You will see a pattern, each of those teams was able to find one or more "playmakers" (Kamara, Hill, Allen, Dak, Russell, Thomas, Brown, Conner, the list goes on and on) in the draft (and typically not the first round or two).  Going back to the theme of self preservation at Redskins Park I think after the botched drafts of years past, now we are just drafting "safely".  We do not have the eye for talent that a true GM would bring to a respected organization so we just draft like we are trying to win a 1985 wild card game.  Deep down they know they will likely miss on picks, so in the interest of self preservation they take the easy/safe picks (Alabama defenders) and then try to find gems not by having a great eye for NFL talent but looking for  individuals with attitude, injury, etc problems who have slipped.  Looking at how we handle our free agency pickups you'll see the same pattern emerge - Alex (very safe, very unspectacular and of course a botched contract);  PRich (injury prone, and currently injured.);  Foster (Alabama;  attitude issues).  Again, the evaluators are not smart enough to  identify true value in FA so they need to take these flyers, which most often do not work out.

     

    For me this is sort of where the hopelessness sets in, if we march out this same circus I have no confidence that they can assemble a team that can compete, which is why bringing Jay back didnt move the needle for me one way or another - it just doesn't matter (I do think he is basically the definition of average and has fostered a terrible culture on the team).  

     

     


  5. Tarp up the entire upper bowl, reduce pricing for the lower to current upper prices and relocate anyone who is interested into the lower.  Drop concession pricing for all STH via the Falcons model, implement a massive fan outreach program and give tons of tickets away via local radio etc.. Eh, who am I kidding, the fella above is right, no one cares anymore :(

     

     


  6. Skins really do enjoy a healthy aftermarket and couldn't care less if you have to sit and be harassed by visiting fans in your own stadium, as long as someone pays them for that ticket!! 

     

    Redskins games (especially against Marquee opponents) remind me a lot of college bowl games at this point, near 50/50 distribution of fans maybe tilted a bit in the Skins favor.


  7. so, zero percent chance of making my renewal depandant on upgrade to LL EZ?

     

    You'll have to wait and see what is available when your upgrade window opens.  It's on you now, not the ticket office.

     

    If it's your second year, your window will be at the end.  If I recall correctly, there wasn't anything in the LL last year for more than an hour during my window and I was second to last.It all depends on how many people re-up, I guess.  Good luck though.
