    Redskins receiving corp is beginning to shape up

    I have seen some local sports guys predicting Josh Doctson will either be sent to a new team before the season starts or he will be cut and not make the 53 man roster.

    0-5 Start, Tell Me It Can't Happen, Please....

    Looking forward to the regular season starting but not optimistic with regard to our record in the first five games. We should beat the Giants and if we could upset either the Cowboys or Eagles then a 2-3 record would be a pleasant surprise.
  3. The timing is good because it distracts us away from what is going on with our missing left tackle. Both players are good choices for sure.

    OLD development: Trent Williams wants to be traded/released

    Only this management team can bungle this trade or no trade situation. The owner have been putting the "fun" in "dysfunctional" since the Snyder era began in 1999. Now the fans get upset with Allen-- -his sidekick known as the Prince of Darkness.

    Welcome to the Redskins Dwayne Haskins QB Ohio State

    Last night on the post game tv show one of the tv commentators predicted that Doctson might get cut so we can keep Sims or some other younger receiver. No one would care if Josh D were cut. We have lost game with him for too long.
  6. We will miss you Sonny! I remember meeting you at a 10K race in DC. You and Sam were there and you were enjoying a cigar. I enjoyed talking with you for about ten minutes. It made my year!! We would have won that Super Bowl if Allen had put you into the game.

    OLD development: Trent Williams wants to be traded/released

    We have been losing with him so we can certainly lose without him this season. OK to trade him or let him sit out a full year. The Prince of Darkness will probably not trade him. Also, he has missed a ton of games the last few years.

    The current status of the Redskins o-line.

    Skins management really screwed up by not keeping Ty. If the owner can buy a new yacht then he could have afforded to keep him. Williams body is breaking down and he will not be worth his big salary in the next few years.

    Gotta Have Faith vs. No Faith

    I am concerned about offensive line, linebackers, and secondary. I think the coaching has improved so that is positive since last season. It would be great to go 9-7 but I do not see that happening unless the defense can dominate and blitz more and catch teams off guard.

    OLD development: Trent Williams wants to be traded/released

    If they end up with a compromise they can also forgive the fines too per the Washington Post article this afternoon. I doubt he will make an 8th Pro Bowl this year. I would like to see if we can get a number one draft choice for him. We have lost for years with him on the team so we can also lose this year if he is not on the team-- he needs to think about that because you know the Prince of Darkness (aka Allen) has already thought about it long and hard.

    The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    The business operations article in the Wash Post today is just another sign in a long line of signs that tells us all we need to know about the toxic environment in the Redskins front office which then permeates to all aspects of this team- both the football side and the non-football side. Most long term fans are not surprised by the dysfunction any more and are almost numb to it all.

    OLD development: Trent Williams wants to be traded/released

    Skins let Ty Nsekhe go to Buffalo Bills last year and now we have Flowers as Williams backup. Allen needs his head examined. Gruden called Nsekhe last year during the season - "a luxury not many teams have" when he had to use him on the line after a starter got injured. Now that luxury lineman is gone and Bill Callahan will not be able to turn Flowers into Nsekhe.

    On Doctson by week six if he has not been productive with whomever starts at quarterback, then I would let him go and try to find a veteran from another team that is being released.

    Mason Foster released

    If they are looking for another player to cut based on their contract then they could be looking at Davis the tight end. He had a lot of drops last year. Another possible cut should be Colt McCoy. You can always stash a young quarterback on injured reserve or some other non 53 man squad. I wish we had kept the backup quarterback that the Eagles stole from us last year.
  15. Most seasons I have them at 8-8 or 9-7 but this year I am expecting 6-10. If we do poorly for the first 5 games, then I am concerned some of the players will give up. Of course, hope springs eternal for a playoff result.
