    A 5 day illness would require medical supervision for a professional athlete in the NFL.  This is all a farce. He came in to do the covid test so he stays in protocol so they can trade him. 


    This. I cant believe this is not being discussed more - either he has a major medical situation (hope not) or else he is coming in and saying "my tummy still hurts" knowing the doctors will send him home.

    Cause those people need to see the light.  We're just doing good work here.

    This! There has been a small elite group of truth tellers who called "Simba" from day one as a bust - a few called the entitled, lazy, bad attitude early on too. I find it comical that people are such hardened defenders of "simba" when it was abundantly clear that he did not even want to be drafted here (I cant fully blame him on that, btw).  Some posters got really invested and even attacked other posters here over the issue - personally, andwith baseless accusations; it was honestly embarrassing.  It was also hard to watch the desperation and subsequent denial set in while he performed at historically poor level and became more and more comically bad off the field.  I just do not understand how some of you cant see it -- multiple regimes want nothing to do with this guy. get enlightened darn it!!!!  At some point in the very near future everyone should have the choice between being a WFT fan or traveling out wherever "Simba" lands, prob 2022 XFL.

    There was never a reason to GIVE him the starting job in the first place. 



    I agree w/ this part of your post, I theorize that he assured lord Danny he would give DH a shot when he accepted the position.  "Simba" is literally a running joke both on and off the field, and (if it happened) Coach should have never ever made any assurance to our owner - who has supervised over 20 years of complete incompetence (on and off the field).   There was an article from Ben Standig that concerned me a bit in which Rivera detailed his exchange with DannyBoy where (in response to benching Simba) Dan said (paraphrase) "its your football team" - "and you will have to live w/ your decisions".  In my opinion, that little zing at the end was unnecessary and could be slightly telling that Danny still find ways to meddle - Danny is talking to a man who has had more success in football than Danny has ever sniffed, his answer should be simply "your team coach".

  4. As someone who called the Haskins bust from day one ( and was in turn accused of vile things by certain members of this msg board ) I feel a level of empty vindication.  This should essentially write the end of his story, at least here in Washington, as I do not see him as the type of personality to "rise to the challenge".  At some point a critical player is so performing at such a poor level that they make it impossible to evaluate anyone else on the roster, and I do feel like we were to that point with Haskins.  Further, he continued to show his immaturity and, frankly, piss poor and entitled attitude literally from the moment he was drafted until present.


    I am encouraged by this move for one particular reason (it is not because I think we have a stellar NFL QB on the roster at current).  "Simba" is sort of the crown jewel of Danny boy meddling in football decisions and making a mess of things.  This sort of signals to me that a grown up is in charge.  I have no doubt that Coach gave Danny some assurances he would give Simba a fair shake, but when it became clear it was not going to work out, Coach had the authority to pull the plug.  At the heart of the issue, Simba is a Danny mistake and this move gives me hope that as long as Coach is here, Danny may stay out of the way.

  5. The stat line was not horrible, but make no mistake - he played loser ball.  Either the entire game plan was written to protect his fragile mental state or he was playing scared;  either way he should be done - the rest of the team deserves a punchers chance.  NFL teams will let you dink and dunk and run out the clock on yourself when they are up 14+ points -- that is not being competitive, that is playing to lose.  Other things NFL teams will happily allow you to do which pad the stat lines and do not contribute to a winning culture:


    --Throw a 3 yard pass on 3rd and twelve

    --Throw a 4 yard pass on 4th and 10


    You get the idea.  The guy is done - lets see if we have anything in Kyle (I dont think much) and start thinking about what is out there in the draft

    This isn’t a one year project.   Del Rio should coach the team until he is healed however long that takes. 


    We need Ron healthy, strong and alert for many years not just the next 13 weeks.




    Agree - I have immense respect for this man trying to gut this out, but this team isnt going to make the playoffs (probably....) or win the SB.  Get right and come back strong - worries me to see him clearly struggling out there

    You have to wonder if Rivera is mentally effected by his condition.


    You go for the field goal there to make it a two score game. Not even a tough decision imho.


    the weird time management at the end of the half and that 4th down mess have me wondering as well.  between him and haskins we are literally managing the game at less than a anklebiter level

    I think another under-discussed aspect to Haskins was that he was a Snyder pick.  That leaves a bitter taste for a ton of fans.  And that is unfair to Haskins, but it's absolutely a red flag knowing Snyder's history.  


    <~~ This - for a lot of fans drafting him was sort of the crown jewel of this organizations dysfunctional structure.  His piss poor attitude and historically bad results just compounded the issue, but make no mistake this is Dannys mess to own.

    I'm frustrated with Dwayne as much as anyone, but people only going off of weird numbers and rankings shows an inability to formulate their own impressions.


    He has been near the bottom of almost every measurable statistic since he became a starter.  Its the opposite honestly, you need to do weird mental gymnastics to convince yourself that he is not the worst QB in the league, and by a very very very wide margin.

    So what do we think of this week against the ravens?   If Riverboard Ron says to Scott turner, pass as much as you want, challenge them all around the field, take the gloves off.... do you thin kHaskins will rise to that occasion?  Or would Ron Be proven right?  Which situation is really better here?


    I think next week is a trap game for the Ravens who are playing a big one tonight - we might keep it closer than some expect - especially with the conservative gameplan (I do not think the gloves come off next week to answer your question).  I think the best outcome is for the org to accept that we do not have a good NFL QB on the roster, so lets throw in whoever gives us the best chance to win today and look to the future

    I think the best way for Ron to save Haskins from himself and help the other 52 is run the ball more.  Today they ran it 22 times and Haskins threw it 37.  Those numbers need to be reversed.  


    Ah yes, they call that the Callahan :)
