    The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    It wasn't Veryoldschool who brought up the Dungy thing, it was me, so no point in jumping on him. It was just an idea I had; I didn't say it was a good one. I'm just on the fence with hiring some college wannabe NFL HC who will say whatever he can to get his foot in the door. This entire organization has had its fill with smooth talkers, so if its going to be a college coach, he better be a damn good one, not a flash in the pan 1 or 2 year wonder boy, and I just don't know of any who are. Besides, we've went the college way before; remember flubber lips? I'd prefer another up and coming OC or DC from the NFL. We HAD that in McVay, and let him go. Should have dumped Gruden's sorry ass to the curb 3 years ago when we HAD an offense that could move the ball. Now we have an entire TEAM doing nothing but scratching theirs. Has anyone created a list of candidates for HC or GM yet? I just don't want to be the new Cleveland Browns, but I'm realizing the Redskins are closer than most think. I

    The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    It's probably been mentioned at some point [ I've just never seen it ] but someone who popped in my head was Tony Dungy. He is smart, god fearing, players respect and listen to him, he has a good eye for talent, but he's on the Sunday Night Highlights Show. Of course, this being AFTER Bruce Allen and Gruden are let go. gotta crawl before you walk, right?

    Redskins vs Jaguars Prediction Thread: 2018 Disappointment Superbowl

    I was talking to a couple co-workers { one's an Eagles fan one's a Cowboy fan } and they both can't believe our injury list. But they said that one never knows, if by some miracle we get pushed [ against our will ] into the paloffs, and we play a team who just happened to get a bunch of injuries trying to make the playoffs, and we somehow play an inspired game and win. That would no doubt have to be the most improbable 'Ace out of the sleeve' moment in NFL history. Hey, I can dream...
  4. When: December 16th 1:00 p.m. noon central Where: TIAA Bank Field Jacksonville This Sunday the Redskins, or whats left of them, travel down to Florida to take on the Jacksonville Jaguars, in a game that can only be called disappointing for both teams. Both teams are going through a season they'd just assume forget. The Jaguars are disappointing this year, especially with the break-out season they had last year, when they had a strong defense, good running game, and a QB who was showing signs of being an NFL QB. This year they have been anything but good. The Jags come off a loss to the Tennessee Titans 30-9, but oddly enough the week prior they took on and shut down an Andrew Luck-led Colts team 6-0. Offensively, the Jaguars' offense has been sputtering to say the least, and against the Titans they started out with a safety, but that was their only score until the 3rd qtr where they managed to score a TD, but that was the extent of their offensive firepower, as the Titans put up 30 points on the Jags defense. This past Sunday, the Redskins fell to the Giants 40-16, in a game that was over before the 42 people in the stands got comfortable in their seats. Saquan Barkley ran roughshod through the porous and maligned Redskins defense, even breaking off a 76 yd TD run to totally deflate and demoralize the Redskin defense. Eli Manning was being Eli Manning, but played well enough to not put his team in bad positions and stayed away from the interception-crazy bug that he seems to catch now and then. Offensively, the Redskins just couldn't do anything with Mark Sanchez. Immobile, inaccurate, and unable to compose himself as an NFL QB who was rushed often and had happy feet the entire time he was on the field. The offense was sluggish [ that's being generous ] and slow, and this carried over to the defense, who have been under-performing now for over a month. A little glimmer of life flashed when Sanchez was benched for Josh Johnson, who came in mid-3rd qtr and did manage to get 2 TDs and 2 - 2pt. conversions, but it was far too little, far too late, as the Giants had put up 40 points on the bewildered Redskin defense in the first half. The team's performance is somewhat understandable, with an injury list the size of a phone book, literally players are being plucked out of burger joints and given a uniform, and it shows on-field. Many feel Gruden is spending his last season here with the Redskins, and many agree the problems are not limited to Gruden himself, but when a coach puts a predictable product on the field, he has to know he's already lost the battle. So, the Redskins and Jaguars; on paper, one could say this is about as close to an even match-up as one could get in the NFL, both have sluggish offenses as well as defenses which have played better earlier in the season. Josh Johnson will be making his first start with the Redskins against a Jaguars defense looking to put pressure on him early and often, and with a rag tag o-line, Johnson will be running for his life almost right out the gate [ maybe the stadium ]. The question is, will the Redskin defense show up? Lately they've been more content on trying to strip the ball away from a ball carrier than making a tackle, so will this continue, or will they try tackling and play fundamental football. No one knows for sure, but given the record of these 2 teams, the stands could be fairly empty, and it could be one of the "Bay of Pigs " football games, just in 2 different cities. Look for a sloppy game. Neither team will be able to do much, it could come down to special teams play for field position and a few FGs. But one never knows, maybe Johnson could be a glimmer of hope to close out this embarrassing Redskin season. When the dust settles and the cat fur flies, the Redskin o-line is abused, in a mildly entertaining game; that is, if you like misery. final Score: Redskins 13 Jaguars 19 First correct score prediction wins a new Redskins cap or beanie and a few other goodies. Good luck, and as always, G O S K I N S !!!

    Next Day Thread: Redskins vs. Giants II

    Um, Bruce, is this you? I say this because of your logic on Bruce Allen. Obviously you have no idea of his history of ruining NFL teams and being shoved out the door by said teams; well, except the Redskins, but we are HOPING this happens soon. You should go do a little looking into Bruce's shenanigans in Oakland and especially Tampa Bay. His hirings of staff/coaches are based off his phone's friends list. But you should need look no further than the whole Griffin issue, then the Kurt issue, then the Foster issue, then the Scotty Mac issue, then the Alex Smith contract. After you do this, come back with a straight face and tell us all you still support Allen; if you do then you are either as blind and foolish as Allen or you ARE Allen....

    gruden runs on 1st down 90% of the time

    Gruden is just too predictable. Opponents have made comments post-game, saying they recognized formations and KNEW what was coming so it was easy to stop. See, Gruden has this play book with all of these various plays, but he always starts out with his scripted game plan, which consists of the very same plays over and over. It becomes a pattern, and a habit for him, and he's too damn stupid to realize everyone else knows whats coming except him.

    Next Day Thread: Redskins vs. Giants II

    Well, considering that one of the guys in that area came from a BASEBALL team! I could see it then; no one wants to see a 6'1 275 lb baseball player who can't run. They have to be lean and eating all that crazy health stuff. If you feel like blowing a little time, go take a gander at the assistant coaches on the team [ click on the 'more' tab on bottom of their page ] and see where these people came from. I did and put it in one of my replies, and I couldn't believe it! One guy came from the Tuskaloosa rubber Ducks, or something like that. Now THAT is scraping the barrel.

    The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    You might be on to something here. Get a big bag, put it at Snyder's door, then scatter a few Coors Light beer cans along the yard; or just steal Bruce's car from the pkg lot and drive it through Snyder's lawn into his pool.

    I’m Happy the Redskins Lost

    I read somewhere that this was the Giants' 100th win against the Redskins. Its supposed to be the most wins any team has against another. { grabbing the glass of antifreeze ]. There should be a area-wide campaign to every Redskin fan to either not go to the next home game or wear the opponent's jersey, just to really drive home the message that change is needed. That would be a sight to see; FedEx Field without fans or full of other team's jerseys. I'd bet he blows a gasket.

    The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    This is honestly maddening. If Snyder keeps Bruce Allen, even after this tremendous collapse, then there's no hope for this team. People need to start stirring up rumors of Bruce Allen being fired on sports talk shows everywhere. Snyder is NOT going to screw my life up, cheering for a team that has no chance of winning because he's in love with the Allen family, and Bruce can do no wrong BS. Snyder, go **** yourself, and when you're done, let Bruce Allen **** you, just like he's ****ed this team. Then both of you can perish for all I care.

    Terminate Manusky

    Players whining about extra practice, and I watch at least 3 balls that bounced off of the CBs today, and every one of them hit that defender right between the numbers. Hell I could have caught those! I said it before, the defense looks like they're getting paid per turnover, that's why they keep trying to strip the ball instead of tackling. That tackling performance should be in the video rule book of how NOT to play defense.

    Who On The Redskins Team/Organization Worth Keeping? {Multi-Level Thread }

    A GM who has the nutsack to look Snyder in the face and tell him " if you want a winning team, you need to step aside" will be fine. Yes, we all see Snyder's choices for this organization blows dog, and maybe he's starting to recognize this; if a hard-nosed GM comes in and tells him the truth then he would back down. If anything, if Snyder is ever in an interview, that should be the FIRST THING asked of him; put him in the hot box right off the bat. Its people like Bruce Allen who are yes men to Snyder that keeps this team from succeeding, so if Allen is removed and a GM that will not hesitate to tell him does, I think he will step aside. But, this isn't about who we want gone, its about who we think are worthy of keeping. Why not Smith as GM?

    Who On The Redskins Team/Organization Worth Keeping? {Multi-Level Thread }

    Geez, who are you, Thanos snapping his finger? lol. The only disagreements I would have would be the ones in bold. Dunbar and Moreau have been out of place a lot, and burned a lot. I'm not sure I'd want a QB who knows only to throw short screens and no idea when to scramble to be a guy teaching a young QB the ropes. That's what a QB coach does; or should be doing. The scouts haven't turned up much to hold their own, it seems they look for the most fit people, not the ones with the best attributes that would help a team.

    Evaluating Jay Gruden in 2018

    And we can get Monte Coleman to be the LB coach, Charles Mann to be the d-line coach, John Riggins to be the RB coach, and...well, you get the picture.

    Redskins vs Giants Prediction Thread: The "Take Me Behind The Woodshed" Episode

    No one got it correct, again, although Capt'n Obvious was relatively close 30-16. I guess I had too much faith in Gruden the QB whisperer to coach up Sanchez. But, what could I expect; a butt hole talking to a butt-fumbler.
