  1. Instead of signing Ashton Lampkin we should release him now and give David Amerson, cornerback for Cardinals a tryout. He played for the Skins several years ago.

    New development: Trent Williams wants to be traded/released

    I do not know about his medical issue with the team. But if he told Jason LaConfora he will not play this year for the Skins then we should trade him. For the last ten years we have lost with him on the team so we can also lose without him on the team. He is injured too much the last few years. If you are working in the front office and you expect to go 6-8 this year why would you put out more money for him and extend his already expensive contract. Start the rebuilding process now and use the money you saved by trading him to fill other holes on the team.

    Would you want HBO Hard Knocks to feature us this year?

    I am sure it would be useful if you want to laugh a lot. I hope they pick the Raiders. Skins need to work hard and improve a lot. No need for tv distractions.

    WP: 20th anniversary of Snyder

    "Those that know how to succeed know how to NOT make the same mistake over and over again, Dan Snyder said. That's how you succeed, and that's something I've done all my life." Feb. 25, 2001 Boy wonder uttered these words in a Washington Post article during 2001. At the time he thought he was a genius when it came to running anything including a football team. He is eating humble pie right now. Skins fans have been too patient and keep spending money on tickets and on his web site. He will not sell the team because it remains a cash cow. He has gained a lot of nice toys too-- super yacht, airplane, etc.

    Reuben Foster carted off on 2nd snap of OTA's

    Are we going to sign Martrell Spaight to replace Reuben Foster? I read yesterday he was just designated as "retired". Hopefully we can find a decent replacement.

    Reuben Foster carted off on 2nd snap of OTA's

    I called my buddy in California to tell him the news. He could not believe another serious injury to one of our players. I joked with him that if I was traded from another NFL team to the Redskins I would be leery given the dreadful injury history the last 3 years.
  7. Hope he can show better in camp this year. Hate to waste a 4th round pick.

    Welcome to the Redskins Bryce Love RB Stanford

    We ended up getting some lineman after the Love pick so that should calm a lot of concerns about getting Love in the 4th round. I was very surprised they went for a running back but I have followed Stanford football for a few years now and the Head Coach not only knows college ball but he also knows pro football. He is saying to ESPN that Love will produce for us once he gets back on the field again. We shall see if this risk was worth in 2020. By then Adrian Peterson will not be on the team most likely.

    ESPN said Stanford's Head Coach thinks Love will produce big time for the Skins once he gets healthy again. Stanford's Head Coach knows his stuff and could be coaching now in the NFL if he wanted to do so.

    2019 NFL Draft discussion thread

    I believe Diana Rossini's report that Snyder and Allen wanted Haskins while the Head Coach and Scouts wanted the Duke quarterback. We needed to fill other positions on the team like receivers, offensive linemen and secondary help. So I guess the Prince of Darkness, who is our de factor General Manager, will go to the waiver wire or recruit undrafted players who they can sign for low dollars to fill these other important positions. Skins are not going to dig themselves out of the big hole they have created due to poor drafting over the last ten years. Also, it will be hard to recruit another new Head Coach next year after Gruden is let go who will be willing to work with a quarterback that he has inherited.

    The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    Earlier today I predicted they would pick Haskins because he went to same school as Snyder's son and I did not favor picking him since we had so many other needs on this team. This reminds me of when they got RGIII. The Prince of Darkness (Allen) and the Danny got their guy. The Head Coach and the scouts wanted the Duke Quarterback the Giants selected so we will see which team made the right pick in the next few years. In the newspaper tomorrow they will say how happy they were that Haskins fell to them at pick number 15 and they will trot out Williams to say how they got their guy. A phone caller on 980 radio this morning pointed out that there is a long line of failed Ohio State quarterbacks who went to the NFL and were not successful. Each of them did fine at Ohio State but they could not raise their level of play in the NFL. I am sure our scouts told the Danny but this information went in one ear and out the other ear.

    Latest speculation is the NY Giants want to trade to get Rosen and Skins trying to move up to the 5th pick.

    The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    The fact that Snyder's son went to same school as Haskins in DC area that concerns me. I would go for a quarterback in the second round and go for another urgent need with the 15th pick. We have so many holes that need to be filled that its not funny. Its not good that the Danny could be involved in pushing for a move up higher in the first round.
  14. Get to work boys- you have a lot to prove this season.

    Starting QB 2019???

    Just read in Wash Post that Snyder's son knows one of the top tier quarterbacks. Ugh.... if we pick him because of what the son says it will keep the dysfunction at Redskins Park alive and well.

    The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    This season could be a true dumpster fire and by the end of another non playoff season both players and coaches will be bailing out and also pointing fingers at the front office. Local media will have a field day with all the behind the scenes stuff that will most likely come out after this regime is booted. Meanwhile Teflon Allen and Snyder will remain in charge while they will continue their almost two decades record of poor decision making for this franchise. The fans suffer the most in my opinion. Coaches and players can move on by going to other teams and proving the Skins front office wrong. Meanwhile the fans remain locked in this dysfunctional abyss waiting for the team to improve and hoping the off the field drama can just go away.
  17. In today's Washington Post John Clayton ranks the NFC in terms of how they did in free agency. Here are his grades: Cowboys C+ Giants C- Eagles C Skins C-

    Snyder values Norman's "star power and sizzle" despite coaches?

    The Danny should care about clearing cap space so we can sign some receivers and some offensive linemen who can block and avoid injuries. The Danny prides himself on being a "genius" when it comes to marketing because that is how he paid for buying the Skins. He has been getting it wrong since 2001 when he gave that famous quote to the Washington Post which is part of my signature below.

    Starting QB 2019???

    Given the chart posted above by Skins in Paradise I would not want to make the move to get the third pick. Especially giving up the first round pick in 2020. Of course Jay and Allen may not care because they could be gone but the next regime would not like it at all.

    2019 Comprehensive Draft Thread

    I am also mentally prepared for another Skins bonehead move if they go to the third pick to get a college quarterback. So many other major holes on this team to fill. "Winning in the off season" phrase often associated with Redskins could easily turn into "Losing in the Off Season" this year. I think our owner thinks Haskins reminds him of RG3. I hope I am dead wrong and they are just bluffing right now.

    The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    The Prince of Darkness loves to go bargain shopping this time of year. Signing Flowers is a real head scratcher. Vinny is smiling this morning at this move by Allen. They pay this struggling player too much money and pay him more than Adrian Peterson is getting paid to come back this year.
  24. On 980 sports radio this morning Al Galdi questions the $4 million signing for Flowers which he says is unfair to Adrian Peterson who signed for less money and had a good year for us last year. Meanwhile Flowers has done awful given his draft position and has struggled so far in the NFL. If I was Callahan I would tell Allen that I cannot work miracles with this dude. Now we cannot bring back Ty Nseche-- he started 16 games over the last 4 years. Our front office gets worse instead of better each year. The Prince of Darkness will soon surpass Vinny Ceratto for worst GM in Skins history.
  25. Profootballtalk.com just announced Tom Compton signed with Jets. Remember him? He started 14 games at left guard with the Vikings last year. I wonder if our brilliant front office considered talking to him. Or maybe Compton did not want to sign with his old team? He was a sixth round pick by Washington in 2012.
