  1. I cried when I heard. Our world is a little less bright with his passing. His heart and courage will be sorely missed.
  2. Man, I hated watching Alex Smith play for us. So many hitches to his throwing motion and no chemistry whatsoever with our guys. I'm still in the camp that people are over-reacting to Haskins development or lack thereof so far and are creating artifical "must start" dead-lines due to the pressure of the Redskins current situation. He only had one year of college ball. If he takes more than a year to get ready for the NFL, that is understandable. To my eyes he made progress with each consecutive preseason game and given the situation with the giants game and the personal hype he must have felt, I'm not too worried about the regression he showed in that game. I'm cool with giving him the reins after the bye week, when Guice should be back as well and letting him manage some games and get his feet wet. If he shows no progression during those games, then I'll worry.

    Random Thought Thread

    Having a wife that genuinely loves and adores the **** out of you, even after 7 years does wonders for my confidence. Beetlejuice is a crazy movie even still to this day. That one definitely left a big impression on me as a kid.

    I feel you. It'd be better if people just @troll rather than quote him when they feel the need to respond.

    2020 Comprehensive Draft Thread

    That is a weird mock by PFF. I highly doubt the dolphins don't go QB with at least 1 of their first 2 picks. If we do somehow manage to wrangle a mid-round first for Trent, I'd rather use the #3 pick on Young and try and trade down with that mid-round pick. If Young isn't there it might be better to trade down from #3 and then scoop some players in the back half of the first. There are so many worthwhile players we can get. Press corners like Fulton, Diggs, Lenoire maybe, and to a lesser extent Hall (more off-man? plus his injury) or Simmons if we go ILB, and O-Line like Wirfs, Cosmi, Jackson, and Leatherwood. Then there are also all those wide receivers. This draft class seems so damn deep. I wonder who this years McClaurin is going to be? I know nothing about later round guys right now, but once things settle it'll be fun to comb through the statistical standouts who aren't getting much shine, but who also have the intangibles to make the most out of their shot at the nfl and take that next step. Which also means watching who stands out at the senior bowl.
  6. This is most likely a red-shirt year for Love. We probably won't see him till next year.

    The Impeachment Thread

    People trotting out the “unseemly” defense are ignoring or ignorant of the two separate criminal referrals issued in response to the call or what the FEC chair has repeatedly called a felony (albeit indirectly). The Barr/Trump DOJ quashed those referrals because supposedly they “can’t quantify the value” of a Ukrainian investigation on Biden but that’s bull**** and besides it’s still obviously in the arena of high crimes and misdemeanors since it goes against the very spirit of protecting our elections from abuses of power and foreign influence. This is kind of **** is exactly what impeachment isn’t supposed to be for.
  8. I don't get shows like Succession. Why are shows centered around such ****ty people fascinating to Americans? It's gotta be more than shaudenfraude right? Even that is a ****ty ass motivation.

    So it looks like the dolphins and bengals are our main competition for the top of the draft. And both are looking for a new qb most likely. We could still end up at #3 and have our choice at Young, Thomas, or Okudah. Then there is also the fact that the bucs, titans, and bears could all be looking for new qbs as well, which might open the door for a trade down scenario even at #3 if Burrows, Love, and Hurts continue to progress.

    We seem to be finally practicing in pads again after not doing so in over 2 weeks.

    I really ****ing hate how so many politicians now a days love to start deflecting a question or giving a non answer by saying “now let me be clear”.

  14. Fresh8686 Redskins Name Bill Callahan Head Coach

    Does anyone know if they practiced in pads today? I saw some interesting comments from some players saying that they haven't practiced in pads in over 2 weeks and that really messes with them in their ability to train with the correct contact points and stay sharp in that respect. If that is true it kind of adds some reasoning to why we're having so many holding calls.

    0-6 Start, Tell Me It Can't Happen, Please....

    In some cases I can understand that, but in most cases **** that, I'm a fighter. If scorched earth is the only way, then let's do it and see who dies from the chemo first, me or the cancer.

    0-6 Start, Tell Me It Can't Happen, Please....

    Maybe it'll help for some here to look at it this way... The Redskins have Cancer. Stage 3 Dan and Bruce Butt-hole Cancer and it's terminal, but a slow death. Going between 0-16 and 3-13 is the chemo. It can hurt and be a miserable time, but it's the only shot at reaching to the core, where the most hardiest of cancer cells are still hanging on. The chemo might not work, but it's better than nothing and the only shot we have to at least put this cancer in remission.

    Chris Thompson where do I begin?

    Showing emotion is not weakness. Crying is not weakness. Hating on or being afraid to show emotion or cry, because you are pressed by what others might think about you or because you think it's not "manly" is a weakness. It's also a symptom of hyper or sometimes toxic masculinity. Being vulnerable, but still getting **** done and having life handled is the sign of a mature man.

    Get'em Scott. Tell him how we all really feel and blow his ass up on tv.
  19. That's what happens when both forums center around "leaders" who are arrogant, incompetent, and self-delusional.
