    Welcome to the Redskins Chase Young DE Ohio State

    If no team thinks we won’t select Burrow and doesn't offer us a haul, then I think we should draft him to call their bluffs. Then watch the ‘real’ offers come in. If we still don’t get the “king’s ransom” then keep Burrow and start working the phones to see what offers We can get for Haskins.

    Welcome to the Redskins Chase Young DE Ohio State

    Plus, it looks like 80% of the plays were directed away from Young. That alone should show how much of a factor Young is. The plays that did go his direction he was doubled. I saw only one play where he looked bad: he over ran too wide on a QB rush allowing the QB to step up in the pocket and scamper for a good chunk of yardage. But what we need to really think about is how effective will he be on our 4-3 with Montez Sweat the other end who is also a 6-5 265 lb DE that runs a 4.4. Wow. It might be fun watching our defense for a change.

    4-3 Starting Lineup

    I think we should take heed to Nick Saban’s prediction at the time Anderson was drafted that he should play inside at the pro level. At least give it a shot. Otherwise, I could see JDR looking to bring in a MLB free agent - especially one he’s had past experience with. Foster is truly the wild card here - injury wise. I see him as a good fit for SAM. Look, we might see one or two teams a season where the TE is the primary receiver who catches 10 passes a game so I agree RF may not be a good fit. But, usually, a typical TE may pull in 3-4 receptions a game and RF can handle that. For the most part, they are run blockers or release from the line to block. I think Rueben Foster would be an over-match for 80% of the snaps when lined up over a typical TE. He would crush a TE on running plays. The Weakside linebacker is like a wait-and-see reactionary position. No doubt he is typically the speediest most athletic LB. his roles are keeping the runner inside or picking up a TE in motion. Or he has to cover slot receiver within the first 5-7 yards if there isn’t a nickel corner. I can see SDH and Holcomb battle for that position. Theoretically, I think we have the personnel here to fill each LB role but I wouldn’t be surprised to see a free agent signing for at least the Mike. On paper, Foster could handle all three roles, but the guy hasnt played a snap in, what?, two years and had injury issues prior to that. Sheesh. SDH is a tweener and Holcomb has but one year of experience and we are completely changing the defense! So, I can also see the pessimism as well.

    Welcome to the Redskins Chase Young DE Ohio State

    I like your analogy. We truly are in the cat bird seat with both players though. It’s a win if we draft Burrows, although I agree not by much. It’s a win if we draft Young, by a more significant improvement- although I think switching to the 4-3 will make Kerrigan more of a factor. And it’s a win if we trade down for hopefully a huge haul. I’m very excited for draft night.
  5. One thing about the 4-3 that supports your “commit” comment is that you can usually stay in your base for all three downs. I think that helps your starters by keeping assignments consistent. A 3-4 would usually need to go to nickel on 3rd down and that usually meant only two interior lineman rushing instead of 3, OLBs have to drop in coverage, so blitzing meant bring up a MLB or safety and that opens up the short middle field. I’m being very general, of course. One thing I like about Del Rio is his knack of getting the most out of mid-round draft picks. It seemed like Jax had nobodies play like stars. Tight off-man coverage and smart safety play. He always had at least one stud tackle on the D-line like Big John Henderson. Payne may need to get back to 330 lb. The Jaguar’s defense for 15 years has always kept them in games and that pretty much started with Del Rio. I’m trying to think back 10-15 years to who our LBs were but no famous name jumps out. But sure tackling was usually present.
  6. Thanks for pointing out the Rams OL coaching, I missed that. I was looking at how he seemed to rarely have more than two seasons at any gig except for his most recent employer, the Panthers. I totally missed the Rams. GA Miami Ohio 1974-1975 OL Miami Ohio 1977 OC/OL University of North Carolina 1978-1984 OL Naval Academy 1985 OL University of Arizona 1986 OL University of Southern California 1987-1988 OC University of Southern California 1989-1991 OL Phoenix Cardinals 1992-1993 OL New Orleans Saints 1994-1996 OL New York Giants 1997-1998 OL St. Louis Rams 1999-2005 OL Kansas City Chiefs 2006-2007 OL Baltimore Ravens 2008-2011 OL Carolina Panthers 2011-Present
  7. The OL and DL coaches seem pedestrian at best. DL coach Sam Mills lll has only ever worked for Carolina and is the son of the Carolina LB Sam Mills. Not much of a resumé
  8. Do we have an OL or DL coach yet?
  9. I’m intrigued, too specifically in regards to analytics as it pertains to contracts. We all know metrics like completion percentage for a QB or pro bowl selection for any player are typical in most contracts as incentives. But, how do analytics play into a contract? Maybe it doesn’t and Rob Rogers is the resident nerd like PFF or FO to give him more insight in how much to offer a player.
  10. Here’s a scouting report on the new DB: https://www.fieldgulls.com/platform/amp/2018/9/2/17812968/seahawks-on-tape-simeon-thomas-scouting-report-cornerback-nfl-roster?utm_campaign=fieldgulls&utm_content=chorus&utm_medium=social&utm_source=twitter&__twitter_impression=true

    Skins at Filthadumpia Game Day Thread

    Wes Martin and Adrian Peterson are scratches?
  12. I like JP Holtz. Good blocker and good hands.

    The 2019 nfl cuts and who we should be interested

    That was my thinking here. Move Doctson to Z and have McLaurin and Richardson gain a lot of DB attention with their speed and Doctson might be more open.

    The current status of the Redskins o-line.

    So, Cody Whitehair is getting $10.5 mil a year (avg). Between Trent Williams ($12 mil) and Alex Smith ($20 mil) and a supposed $12mil for Scherff, that adds up to roughly $44 mil between three players. Now, the Cap this year is $188 mil, right? So, aside from dead cap math, that leaves about $94 mil for offense if all things are equal. So, a little less than half of what our offense should be allocated is going to just three players and two of them likely will never play for the Redskins ever again. This is where I think the FO has really screwed up.

    Redskins vs Eagles Prediction Thread: 2019 Kick-Off Spectacular

    Redskins 9 Eagles 7 I think it’s up to Manusky. If he unleashes the hounds early and often, and Case gives up only one turnover, I think we can hold the Eagles to one touchdown and we get three field goals.
  16. None taken. The reason I compared the two is based on size and speed. Smallwood runs in the 4.4s - pretty fast but not as fast as Love. Smallwood is 5’10” and 208 lb and Love is 5’9 200 lb But the Bryce Love I’m talking about is the 2018 Love, not the 2017 we all wish he could return to. It’s a bit of mystery to me why Love’s production fell so dramatically between the two seasons especially when Stanford returned four of their five OL. Love was nursing an ankle injury for most of the season but to me it looked like he still had the speed, just not the shipping-lane sized holes like in 2017. He played in 10 games before tearing his ACL in the final game of the season. What one sportswriter said made the most sense is that defenses played Stanford to shut the run down with 8-9 in the box and those running lanes got more narrow. And, because Love isn’t built to skip or bounce off a defender like Guice can do, Love just got worn down.
  17. He may also be insurance in the case Love doesn’t return this year from injury. Smallwood seems like a Love clone - small and fast with decent hands. http://www.nfl.com/draft/2016/profiles/wendell-smallwood?id=2555461
  18. I can’t figure out why we didn’t at least try him at Z. Last year was Doctson’s best catch percentage but I assume his progress wasn’t good enough; 56.4% from 44.9%. That’s pretty poor regardless of which round he was drafted in. I’m OK from moving on from Doctson but am cautiously optimistic in our very young and nearly inexperienced group of receivers.
  19. I thought Holtz has to clear waivers by tomorrow but Wilson and Brailford are on the 53 and can go on IR which will free up 2 more spots. But I’m not 100% sure
  20. I’m thinking it’s McLaurin/Davis at X, Richardson/Harmon at Z, and Quinn/Smith at Y?
  21. Outside of Richardson, that’s a mighty young and inexperienced group. I like that the coaches chose the players who played the best... I think these guys will be just fine.
  22. Are we only going with only one backup tackle? Geron barely can play left tackle and I don’t think he got any reps at right. I was hoping Timon Parris would make it.
  23. I thought Reeves outplayed Apke by a long shot and Reeves played +70% of the snaps on special teams. I thought we’d see the last of Apke.
  24. Or trade for a player instead of a draft pick.
