    Poll : Source of Massive Injuries the last 2 years

    In my opinion we draft and sign too many players with injury histories. Examples Chris Thompson and Paul Richardson. The Alex Smith injury was a freak injury. Just bad luck. But too many of these guys on the roster are just injury prone. I'm not saying our practice habits and training camp have nothing to do with it. But to me we just employ far too many injury prone guys.

    Game Day Thread - Philthy at Redskins

    While I agree to an extent I don't think they were bad enough to take us down on their own. Take today for instance. They held their own and kept us in the game for quite a while. But when your offense can't stay on the field for more than a few plays no defense is going to remain effective. Don't get me wrong, we've got issues and I want Bruce gone as much as anyone. But I believe if Alex had stayed healthy we'd have squeaked into the playoffs.

    Game Day Thread - Philthy at Redskins

    Agreed. If the Alex Smith injury never happens(and that one was a freak injury) we are likely playing more football next week.

    It's Official - The Browns have surpassed us.

    Agreed. The Browns have surpassed MANY teams in the league now assuming this isn't a mirage. Good for them. You'd think we were a 2 win team the way much of our fanbase acts towards this team. SMH

    Does Doctson even care?

    He's showing signs of life. Receivers can take time to develop. This is really only his second full season.

    Next Day Thread: Redskins vs. Bucs

    I was sitting in the upper deck at the game yesterday. When he released that deep ball to Davis yesterday I was immediately out of my seat. I was SURE that was a TD. From my vantage point you could see just how open Davis was. I couldn't believe he missed that. No excuse. Unacceptable.

    Redskins Lead NFC East

    If we can just split with Philly the division should be ours. They still have the Saints and the Rams on their schedule.
  8. We just have to pressure him. He is absolutely terrible under pressure. We do that and the pics will follow. And we have a much better pass rush than we did when we faced him in the past. I think we force 3 turnovers and score on a defensive TD. Skins 27 Bucs 20

    Tailgate and/or Get Together in Tampa?

    I am thinking of taking my son to the game Sunday. What's my best bet for value tickets? Stubhub? Should I wait until gameday morning to buy? I haven't bought last minute tickets in over 20 years.

    2018 Season Injury News

    Maybe this is just in my head but it always seems to me we are drafting and signing guys with injury histories. Chris Thompson had at least one major injury in college. And if I'm not mistaken Paul Richardson had some injury history and we signed him last off season. Maybe stop drafting and signing guys with injury problems?

    Richie Incognito anyone? J/K. Sort of.

    Can we stop pretending now?

    The problem is we are one of a handful of teams in the league that don't even have a pro caliber passing offfense. And I don't think it's just Alex. We can't even properly execute a screen pass. EVER! Watching other teams around the league other teams seem to consistently get these things to go 10+ yards. We just can't seem to execute them. And these plays where Mo Harris goes in motion behind the backfield are almost always disasters. It's usually just a run to AP that loses yardage. I'm tired of seeing that damn play!
  13. No I think you had it right. You're referring to the year we made is to the NFC Championship game and lost to the Giants right? That was 1986. We were 12-4. Very good, but that Giants team was pretty elite. The 1987 season was the one where we won it all with Doug at QB. I don't believe the Giants even made the playoffs that year.
  14. No doubt Alex has been disappointing thus far this season. But I'd like to point out a positive. He made a huge play in yesterday's game that possibly saved the day. After AP's fumble he chased down Vernon on what probably would have been a fumble return for a TD. That was huge. That would have tied the game at 10-10 and who knows what would have happened from there. Instead they get the ball at around our 40, the D holds and the lead is preserved. Kudos To Alex for a great hustle play there.

    Sean Taylor

    I had a string of bad jersey purchases that included Heath Shuler and Jeremiah Trotter. My wife bought me a Sean Taylor jersey(as well as an autographed photo) as an anniversary gift just weeks before he was shot. I have not purchased a jersey since.
