    Starting QB 2019???

    Here’s a nice write-up from our friends at Hog’s Haven regarding Stidham: https://www.hogshaven.com/2019/2/11/18220204/the-best-value-and-fit-for-the-redskins-at-quarterback-could-be-in-round-three-of-the-2019-nfl-draft I am on board for a QB in the late 2nd (trade up) or 3rd round. We can get that edge rusher in the 1st and a good speedy X or Y receiver in tbe 2nd. A 3rd round QB that posseses high-accuracy, good frame from a big-program, tough conference, low interception rate, etc. and is practically free makes too much sense. if we finish with only 2-3 wins next season then you draft a better QB in the 1st. If we again finish with 6-7 wins then we likely have found our QB or can at least ride him until 2021.

    2019 Comprehensive Draft Thread

    This is the reason I’m spending most of my time evaluating mid-tier QBs who could be available in the 2nd round. Someone who at least has a high percent completion but has other issues that can be fixed but have caused the player to drop out of the 1st round. So far, I’m thinking Ryan Finley. I’m not too keen in drafting a QB past the 3rd round. We may need QB help come mid-season this year. https://www.seniorbowl.com/player-view.php?p=2575&squad=North

    Take the full cap hit for Smith in 2019

    Also interesting was the the Vikings believed that Herschel Walker was the last piece to achieve a Super Bowl. It didnt work, obviously. I guess history does in fact repeat itself.

    That rebuild really began with the Herschel Walker trade of ‘90 to the Vikes. Dallas recieved Minnesota ‘s 1st and 2nd round picks in ‘90, ‘91 and ‘92. The Cowboys also recieved 5 players. Frankly, I dont think Dallas could’ve pulled off that rebuild without that whopper of a trade. And, I dont think we currently have many marquee players that would net us three 1st rounders.

    I might use that 2nd rounder or a 3rd for Ryan Finley, NC State. 67% pass completion and 3,900-ish yards is 2nd best in this year’s QB class. His Gator Bowl game was pretty bad though. I think he coukd back up McCoy and likely become the starter sooner than later.

    Trade up to draft Haskins???

    No. Walter Football has him drafted 6 round or later, not 2-3 round. Gardner Minshew, QB, Washington State Height: 6-2. Weight: 220. Projected 40 Time: 4.83. Projected Round (2019): 6-FA. 1/5/19: In his one year at Washington State, Minshew became a fan favorite, putting together a good season in Mike Leach's point-machine offense. After not playing much at East Carolina, Minshew transferred to the Cougars and benefited from Leach's system. Minshew completed 71 percent of his passes in 2018 for 4,779 yards with 38 touchdowns and nine interceptions. He has more of a backup skill set for the NFL, but he could help himself with a strong performance at the Senior Bowl Read more: http://walterfootball.com/draft2019QB.php#ixzz5c4wcNYIt Read more at http://walterfootball.com/draft2019QB.php#gUpEiEvFW6FjvWpW.99

    Press Release: #Redskins Quotes- Gruden

    I’m confused Earlier coach said Trent is out. But did I hear correctly it’ll be a game time decision?
  8. Nick Saban thought Anderson would move to the inside when he was drafted. I agree. But in a 4-3, which of the three LB should play Mike? It has to be a true downhill thumper; maybe that’s Foster. Trouble is, Brown has not covered as well so I think he could be weakside. That leaves Anderson at Sam. Or, I’d have Anderson in the middle, Brown at weak to use his speed, and Foster at strong to take on TE’s.
  9. I belive Anderson had 22 snaps. Interesting is that Cassanova had 24 snaps. https://www.hogshaven.com/2018/11/14/18058062/skins-stats-snaps-redskins-buccaneers-defense-st

    Redskins Lead NFC East

    I agree that the QB play has to get better - especially if we want to go deeper in the playoffs. It's working now and may win us the division, but from my personal perspective, I too want to see the QB play improve as we are too reliant on AP and there's no one to replace his performance if he goes down. But, here's a new perspective from Clinton Portis I had not considered and find it valid: With Peterson leading the way, the Redskins rank eighth in rushing offense. Washington’s 26th-ranked passing game leaves a lot to be desired, but Clinton Portis isn’t concerned about the way in which the Redskins are winning. In fact, he thinks it could benefit them down the stretch. “When the season changes and the ball becomes slippery and the conditions change, it gets tough,” Portis said on 106.7 The Fan. “Most teams are going to have to figure out a winning formula. Most teams are going to have to switch from aerial assault to nasty games, to let’s figure out how to run the ball, how to protect the ball and play good defense. When we get to that part of the season, we’re going to be 8, 10, 12 games in, because that’s our regular offense . . . Although we’ve been winning games and it hasn’t been pretty offensively, when it comes to the sloppy time of year, I think we’re going to have the perfect offense for it, because Alex Smith refuses to turn the ball over. His mind-set is not allowing him to take chances that’s going to put us at risk or put this defense in a short field." https://www.washingtonpost.com/sports/2018/10/30/adrian-peterson-is-making-all-his-doubters-look-foolish/?noredirect=on&utm_term=.ea923fbb0bae
  11. KC with 32 pass attempts and 255 yds at the half. Thats crazy! We might be witnessing history. Both QB’s over 250 yards. Reminds me of an 80’s game with San Diego vs. Cincy where each QB threw for 500 yds. Dan Fouts vs. Anderson, if I recall.
  12. Great question. Isn't there a grace period where a returning player from PUP won't count against the 53? But regardless, it makes some sense that if McGee is better than Hood that he should take his spot - unless Caleb Brantley gets cut and moved to PS.

    What Bye Week Adjustments Would You Make?

    Id like to see more 2nd string recievers get reps to find out which reciever combination can get open the most. But then again, if we are only calling 5 passing plays a half, it’s a moot point.

    Redskins vs Colts Prediction Thread: Will the Redskins "Luck" Out?

    Dont we get to dress more players because it’s a home game? If so, I’d like to see Adonis Alexander and Caleb Brantly get some reps.

    Redskins vs Colts Prediction Thread: Will the Redskins "Luck" Out?

    Apparently both starting tackles for the Colts are out. It could be a blood bath. Mike Wells ESPN Staff Writer Colts starting left tackle Anthony Castonzo had a "minor" setback with his hamstring and will miss Sunday's game at Washington, coach Frank Reich said Friday. Castonzo did not practice Thursday or Friday after being limited in practice Wednesday. He originally injured his hamstring in the first week of training camp in early August. The Colts are dealing with injures at tackle. J'Marcus Webb, who started at right tackle in Week 1, was placed on injured reserve earlier this week with a hamstring injury. Joe Haeg started at left tackle in Week 1. The Colts could go with rookie Braden Smith or Le'Raven Clark at right tackle or slide Haeg to right tackle and play Smith or Clark at left tackle.
