    Next Coach?

    I want Matt Rhule to be the next HC of this football team so, so badly. Why? Forget the amazing job he has done at Baylor, look at the job he did at Temple University. The dude took a team that has been a laughing stock for the better part of its existence and established a culture of toughness that has continued to this day -- more than three years after his departure and two HCs later. Under his stewardship, the team went from 2-10, to 6-6, to 10-4, and then 10-3. At Temple! You watch any Temple game and the phrase 'Temple Tough' is repeated throughout the game. Temple went from a team that was almost disbanded to one that expects to make a bowl game each year. That only happens through establishing an organizational culture of accountability and toughness. I can't remember the last time the above adjectives were associated with this organization. Bring Rhule into this organization and lets reset what it means to be a Redskin.

    Ye Auld 2019 Free Agency Tracker

    You are missing the most obvious one here -- QB! If we go into next season with our current crop of QBs (Smith, Colt and Keenum) as is, I will have considered this off-season a failure. I get the whole 'waiting until next year for a better QB class' mantra, but I feel like every other year is the best QB class to come along this decade. I don't trust any QB on our roster to lead us to better than 10-6 or worse than 7-9, once again placing us out of the range for a top prospect.

    In addition to his skill set on the field, every thing I've read about him off the field has been nothing but glowing. I love adding him to the strong foundation of culture we are starting to build on Defense with him, Allen, Payne and all the other Bama boys. I suspect the actual financials of this deal won't be nearly as wild as the proposed $84 million floating around.

    Have you ever smoked Weed before???

    I've had some experience, and quite frankly, it just puts me to bed lol. Doesn't really affect my head too much, but definitely takes a bit of the edge off without going full planet Xenon.
  5. In the first time in ages, I actually think we have the right culture in the locker room to support a Reuben Foster type player. But just days after he was arrested for domestic abuse suspicions? I'm doubting he ever actually plays a down for this team.

    The Official Washington Wizards Thread: The JOHN WALL ERA

    What is incredible about all of this is that Ted played out this exact situation with the Capitals and GMGM, who had a much, MUCH better track record than Ernie. You figure this guy would see what happened with the Capitals and try to duplicate success.

    2019 Comprehensive Draft Thread

    Agree with the overall consensus that reaching for a QB in the first would be a bad move. However, I think our first pick needs to bring SPEED to this team. We have to be one of, if not the slowest teams in the league. Last night's game showcased the future of football. And let me tell you, if that is the future of the NFL, the Redskins are worse than ill-equipped to handle it. Given the lack of promising skill players at the top, we absolutely need to take a sideline to sideline ILB or a speed-edge rusher with our first pick. Another beast hog on the defensive line would be great, but there is only so much value-add that one more would bring. Take last Sunday's game for example. Our line was occupying Houston's line and putting our LBs in one on one situations with their skill players. How many times did you see Houston's mediocre RB's make Mason Foster miss?

    I think what the Atlanta game showed more than anything is just how slow this team is across the board. We've got to be one of the slowest teams in the league. I don't really know enough about college football to highlight specific players we should target, but I'd like to see at least 2 out of our first 3 picks add speed in some dimension to this team.

    They also went 13-3, beat the Vikings by 30, took down Belichick and Tom Brady, all without their best player. So yeah... I'd say it was pretty dominant and spectacular what they did last year.

    What makes you think that? This is a team that has only added pieces from a dominating Super Bowl run last year -- not to mention they got their all-world QB back. This is their division to lose and I can't see them losing more than 2 games the rest of the way.

    Redskins receiving corp is beginning to shape up

    What's getting lost in this conversation... Didn't we bring in Paul Richardson to be a deep threat? Why the heck aren't we using him as one then?! Look what happened the two times we actually threw the ball deep to him this year -- defensive holding against AZ and a 35 yard gain against the Colts. We need to be taking more shots to him . It is the only way we can open up things in the short passing game for Reed/Thompson/Crowder. And, if we believe Alex is the same QB he was last year, he lead the friggin NFL in downfield passing.
  12. He also had Blaine Gabbert as his QB for the better part of the year... I mean, do you guys remember when we played AZ last year? Gabbert legitimately put on one of the worst displays of a starting QB that I've ever seen in the NFL. I don't think AP is going to come in and play at a Pro Bowl level, but we needed another RB, and like it or not, we are all in this year after the trade for Alex Smith. I am perfectly fine with the signing.

    Say Barkley does fall to pick 7 or 8 -- would you trade this year's 1+2 and maybe a 3 next year to move up for him?

    I think the main problem people have with Payne is do you really want to invest the 13th pick into a guy who will play two downs? While he does have a high floor, his ceiling, IMO, isn't close to some of the prospects we could be getting at 13. We NEED to hit this pick out of the park. What our team is missing the most is top-end talent. Can we really name a single player on our team that opponents have to specifically game plan against week in and week out? Trent Williams is a stud, but the nature of his position is one where if you don't hear much about him then he is doing his job. Norman is solid, but doesn't seem to be the turnover machine that other top CB's in the league are. Jordan Reed is also great, but realistically, can we really count on him for even half of a season? This team has plenty of good players, but what we need are great players.
