    Blackburn in 8th. Three points off the playoffs and in form right now. Could do with some defensive cover, but I don't know if it's going to happen. Mowbray's been very shrewd with his signings but I just don't know how much more cash the club has. My guess is not much.

    Kingdom Come: Deliverance

    It started strong but I felt like mid/late game it just went full grind. The story is intriguing, but some things just didn't seem fully thought through or finished. I don't know if it has been updated as I haven't looked at it in probably 9-10 months now.

    The Morning After thread

    I'm generally pretty forgiving. I've thought Jay was a decent enough coach. I think he's got a good personality to fit into the mess that the front office/ownership situation. He tends to handle things with grace, which I think is admirable. We've been an average team for the most part which I think has been an upgrade over some of the stuff in the past. We've shown signs of grit at times. But none of it is consistent. Some of it is due to the injuries, I know. But we never look prepared. We never seem to try to exploit the other team's weakness. We shouldn't be running with only 2 quarterbacks on the roster total (no one even on the practice squad?). So now we're in a situation going forward that every healthy quarterback on the roster will not know the playbook. That's inexcusable. Sanchez looked ok in hurry up, but we slowed the tempo down again after the half (we never have hurry up). Adrian Peterson has a 90 yard run and barely gets a crack at a run again, attempting to run with Thompson instead who isn't an inside runner and just back from injury? Unprepared. And it's enough. Sorry for my scatter brained rant...

    Breaking: Redskins claim Reuben Foster NFL.COM

    Peterson was put on that list. Wasn't it created after the Ray Rice incident? It's not that old.

    Alex Smith Actual Status

    This is from Pro Football Doc. He thinks there's a good possibility Smith will be ready for the start of the 2019 season. He also says: "Even though Monday's revelations [spiral fracture] make Smith’s injury seem worse than initially reported, it really should not be seen that way. Any injury of this magnitude makes it potentially career threatening, but I am confident Smith can play again if he chooses." https://www.sandiegouniontribune.com/sports/profootballdoc/sd-sp-pfd-alex-smith-leg-fracture-rehab-redskins-1120-story.html

    An assault on American democracy is underway

    Isn't the question, then, when hasn't democracy been under assault?

    What Teams Do You Pull For? And Why Thread

    Redskins - Pretty much has always been in the blood. Caps - Really started with the 98 Cup run. Orioles - I really only put this here because at one point in my life I really liked baseball and if I were to still follow the sport I'd follow the Orioles. Radford - School I attended. This really only applies for NCAA basketball, though, it's the only thing I check in on every now and again. Blackburn Rovers - Brad Friedel's team during the 02 World Cup and they stuck.

    I was gonna say...I really hope you pulled off that trade. Good trade. Don't know if it's the right move right now, but it gives you more depth at least. I feel like AZ should just keep feeding DJ the ball because right now he's the only thing that would work. I can't believe how under utilized he's been.

    Sounds like a good deal. I'd prefer Goff in a 1 to 1 trade.

    Phil Jones was really good for Blackburn. Just hasn't really fulfilled his potential at United.

    Next Day Thread: Redskins vs. Packers

    He had no defensive snaps this past week.

    That exact combo is what lost me my game, too. I think your team looks good. I went with a similar strategy of drafting young guys that should hopefully pan out down the line. On paper your team still has a lot of strength in it and there's no reason to go out and make moves that are short term gain/long term loss. I'm not making any moves this week despite the urge to do so. Now's not the time to panic, you can't overreact to week 1.

    I really like that RB strategy. I think you did a good job at picking up rookie RBs that have good potential for breakout.

    I think they put more stock into defense and kicker picks, too, then is warranted. In my drafts teams that end up picking kicker early (thereby getting the number 1 kicker) generally gets a higher grade, but overall the teams are weaker and those guys are consistently the ones that don't perform very well in season because they over value positions that you can consistently find streamable/free agent options.

    LOL. Ya, it's Collins. My bad.
