    We'll always have that 1 month at the end of 2015 to remember what could have been https://www.espn.com/nfl/player/gamelog/_/id/15860/type/nfl/year/2015

    Welcome to the Redskins Chase Young DE Ohio State

    I get the sense that most here are convinced 100% it's going to be Chase. Maybe I should start a welcome thread. After a stud workout from Tua we should say we love him blah blah. Send our new GM out there to pump the tires. Heh. We want a bidding war dammit. We are usually too stupid to embrace the suck and get a top pick. This year, we were indeed SO bad that for once we couldn't spend our way to our annual mediocrity. Lets leverage this to the max. Call Cleveland.

    Would it make any sense to at least pretend that we like Tua? See if we can somehow pull off trading out of 2, and still landing Chase. I'd guess it can't hurt too much to try. And regardless, at 2 OA we need to look at all players closely especially Tua. With the fail rate of QBs I have long thought having 2 younguns is wise but most teams seem afraid to do it. We did it, and both QBs are still in the league despite our top tier organizational dysfunction. I like 3 QBs in the mix - 1 vet. I feel like starters go down quite often. Competition is not always a bad thing, but I think the NFL Gods frowns upon it when its QBs. I was bent when we drafted Kirk thinking 3 would be looking over his shoulder. I was wrong. The key may be trading the one you don't want early on, on a high. I have to think coaches can look at a kid in day 1 and know yeah this is going to tough. Flynn'em. Seattle drafted Wilson right after getting bent.
  4. "ESPN's Mike Greenberg said he believes more young quarterbacks are ruined than developed" Imagine my shock, as I have been implying this for a decade if not more. The era of old stiffs and their static playbooks are slowly becoming a thing of the past. Not all QBs are cut from the same mold but their fat overly complex playbooks were designed as if they were.

    Ooooweee Dunbar wants to be traded!

    Yep, all true. But DC has not been good to players it seems. Kirk bolted. Our team captain and best player, went on strike. Those are 2 big high profile events all saw and presume helps other high skill guys expecting a big payday to feel emboldened. Some players will be willing to bet they can demand what they want; a new contract or to be traded to somewhere with greener pastures. Money isn't everything, to all. Most, Shirley. Some may want less money, but it fully guaranteed. But those pastures won't always be greener, Dunny is not without risk here. I hope he gets a "not a team guy" label and it crushes his next contract. He thinks its his time to strike. He is too injury prone IMHO to invest heavily in so lets trade him if he is going to be clamoring for top dollar or threatening to sit. It may be his money grubbing lawyer convincing him what to do. I feel like attorney's advisors and agents often give players bad advice. I wish RR would just cut him and start laying down the law. Anyone that doesn't want to be here should be shown the door, sooner than later.

    I am surprised more of our players don't ask to be traded. Even with RR in the house our stadium will remain overrun a few more years at minimum.
  7. Haskins has to learn how to throw the short out. Or, the play needs to be removed from the playbook. Is that purely mechanics? It doesn't look that way to me, but I admittedly focus more on results than footwork, in the era of young QBs now allowed to play knowing they aren't fully cooked. It's almost like Haskins has TOO much arm strength to throw short outside the numbers. Or, his accuracy is consistently simply way off on that route. I have theorized he is gun shy of a pick 6 and is playing it safe, leading more outside, likely at a coaches direction to avoid turnovers / settle for the 3 if need be. Sure, the WR could be slightly off in his route, but think its almost innate for a QB to adjust to the nuances of WR routes as they battle DBs every ****ing play.

    Thoughts on Greg Olsen potentially signing here? (M.E.T.)

    I don't know if it was just me but it sure seemed like Jay tried to game plan around Sprinkle, an awful awful lot. At least, early in games. TE is an important position, and we need help. I am sure we will bring back Jordan Reed Hentsie and Sprinkle, but do we want a TE nabbed in the draft. I know BPA blah blah but when the position is neglected long enough, eventually it must be prioritized on draft day. All in on Hunter Henry may be the best route to run.

    The ferocious Bosa led SF pass rush was not enough. Expectation Check on all our undrafted players.
  11. Or, he was wasted. And thus, loved everyone. I love you, man. The guys we drafted were just the interviews he remembered.

    He's on the wrong side so Olsen meh ok on a cheap contract only, to be a vet mentor... He can be this years Vernon Davis. I would rather go Hunter Henry and Antonio Gates.

    It's funny. Not too long ago, it was almost unheard of for a defense to call timeouts to try to gain an extra possession, in tie games or when playing with a lead. Kyle doesn't use them it one time, and he starts getting skewered. To me the real discussion is why was this never a discussion until 5 years ago, or whenever coaches finally flipped the switch? And also started going for it on 4th downs. That all said Kyle "played it safe" old school style, and lost. Leave it to Beaver to teach the lad the old school methods.

    I was wondering if he would down the ball on the 1 as we see players sometimes do. #Over
