    2020 Comprehensive Draft Thread

    You cannot use a large paint brush like college dominator stats to strictly determine a players chance of success. Every prospect needs to be looked at individually to develop a clear picture of the prospect. Individually, McLaurin was elite in college at everything he was allowed by coaches to be elite in. He was also elite at the combine and senior bowl. His only red flag was a lack of college production which can be explained both by the talent at Ohio state, but mostly due to the run heavy scheme they employed while he was there. The opportunity for him to have dominant stats was not there. Additionally, he landed in great spot. He'd either have a qb willing to throw him the ball or his college qb, while on a redskins roster that was begging for someone to step up and take the reigns. The redskins cutting doctson and highlighting mclaurin is one of the few personnel moves I've agreed with over the past decade.

    Is this the best Defensive Front we've had in years?

    This is exactly what I was worried about when drafting him. I didn't see a lot of ability to bend around the edge and I thought his large frame would allow him to be too easily caught up kerrigan style by the athletic tackles in the nfl. His strong point so far seems to be wrapping around the line of scrimmage to chase down running backs. It's super early to make a definitive decision on him though, and I suspect our coaching is a bigger problem. Would be nice to see him pop on film though.. that's what i like to see with young guys. Haven't seen it with him yet. I think your concern is valid.

    If haskins puts us into superbowl contention 2 years in a row, that will do it. It just happened with the rams. A new stadium ain't gonna do it. As for this PR guy, he sucked, wish him the best but the skins are always on the wrong side of PR moves.

    Tank for Tua

    You are right it could be. In another dimension we could snag a few extra premium picks from miami. But you just know it would blow up in our faces. We would have some ridiculous wins at the end of the year. Or Tua would get hurt in the championship game. Or a season purposefully tanked would ruin our current youngster's mindset. It would also be a blemish on the team. I'm all for building for the future at times, but I feel you have to put your best foot forward as a team. Getting rid of bad contracts or guys that would not be beneficial in the long term is not a bad idea. In fact, I've wanted to trade trent and Reed for years and I thought we shouldve taken offers for kerrigan in the offseason... Actively throwing games though is not something I'd want to be a part of.

    One dominant season will bring fans back. String a few together in a row and the redskins fan base will explode. remember rg3? People were gravitating to that team and it would have continued had he not been injured. People generally like to root for winners. The vast majority are not diehard fans.

    Lol dmv is a bad market. DC is located at the bottom of a major megalopolis. Yall must be high. The team sucking for over 20 years is the only reason for poor viewership and sales.

    Fantasy Football 2019

    Chargers a good defensive play this week? They get a sack heavy Houston team and the dolphins next week. I have San Francisco vs. Pit with a new qb currently. I've scored -6 points so far from my defense. Pretty significant when, for instance, the Patriots scored 35 in my league last week. Gotta choose between Mclaurin and Lockett again. Might go Lockett this week because the bears d is no joke.

    What in the blue hell are the Dolphins doing?

    It worked for the cowboys. Seems to be working for the browns. It did not work for us or the rams. Miami is taking it to a new level though. We should have done it post cousins or post alex smith injury tbh.
  9. Few want to see young children get killed but this is a part of life along the course of history, especially when it comes to power struggles. It also depends on the definition of children. I didn't see it listed in the article. All I saw was "children at the time of arrest" Are we talking 5 year olds or teenagers. But like I said, it is a different culture. It's their rules. How would you like it if some country imposed sanctions on the US because we allow women to work or because gay marriage is legal in some states. You'd tell that country to **** off and rightfully so, because they don't understand or abide by our laws and they are not responsible for our governance. This is an oxymoron.
  10. Saudia Arabia is a sovereign country, they make their own laws and have their own customs. Those customs might seem strange to us but the people there understand them. Frankly it is none of our business how they choose to administer justice unless there is widespread genocide. That doesn't seem to be the case here. It seems more along the line of an anti-death penalty movement and people trying to stick their noses where they don't belong.

    Have we seen and heard enough from Norman yet?

    I wasn't a big fan of the money we spent on him at the time, but I did think we needed a player of his caliber. He hasn't had a good run of it lately but I really don't think he is the source of the problem. We're getting steamrolled up front, applying no pressure, and our secondary is continually on the back foot. I think we have a serious coaching problem on defense. Some say that "well, we just look good on paper". Nope. There is too much talent on the defense for it to be this bad.

    Erosion Of The Redskins Fanbase

    It used to be, even in the early years of snyder, that people would get up for games. Now it's not worth spending time and money to go to games or plan your day around watching them, and it hasn't been for some time. Most of the diehard fans are pretty apathetic at this point and I don't blame them. The team never does things right and will be quick to dash any hope when promising scenarios present themselves. I have my standard interest at the beginning of the season which drains away after a few games. However, my interest is continually on a shorter leash. Pretty soon I won't care to watch at all.

    Is this the best Defensive Front we've had in years?

    Kerrigan, payne, allen, and sweat are 1st rounders. Anderson is a second rounder. Settle and ion are 5th rounders. Outside of sweat, everyone has experience in the system. The amount of draft resources put into that line is mind boggling for any unit on any NFL team. It should be dominant or close to it at this point. 1 sack in 2 games. Getting rolled in every aspect of the game. Someone needs to be fired.
