    Redskins vs Bears Prediction Thread: Monday Night Meltdown?

    Any chance Jay gets fired before the end of the season? He and Bruce and most everybody else should get fired at halftime. Let the QB Coach and Alex Smith coach the second half. Get a head start on the GM and head coach search. Let the new guys decide on what to do with Trent and any highly paid poor perfomers (I.e Norman). Watching this team makes me sick. Im out. As long as Bruce Allen remains in the decision making process I will not be posting or even watching Redskin games. If I outlive Bruce's tenure I'll see you guys around.

    The Redskins win the first half 10-6, lose the second half 21-3. Final 27-13.

    Tank for Tua

    How about we trade Trent and tank for Wisconsin's offensive line. I'd take their two starting tackles in the first round.

    Guice Injury and Med staff

    I'm not sure why the level of surprise when we draft often injured players and they get hurt. Maybe Bryce Love will be the exception coming off a bad knee, but with the Guice injury the skins will probably rush him back before he is ready and break him too. At some point the only ability that matters is availability and we seem to accumulate a bunch of guys that struggle with that. I sincerely hope Guice heals and returns better than ever, but history tells me this isn't likely. Even with a healthy Guice, a healthy scratch of AP just doesn't seem like the act of a competent staff. I don't think we are as bad as some have prognosticaded, another middle of the pack non competitive year. Maybe we clean house this offseason and start the long process of recovering from "Synders Synergy of Suck" or maybe we keep doing the same thing with the same results. Without some change I am struggling with staying positive. All that said, I think we have a chance to compete against Dallas on Sunday, Beat Dallas and everything is ok for a minute. HTTR.

    Skins at Filthadumpia Game Day Thread

    Gruden, and most of the coaching staffs, first game of their last season. A predictable offense and a soft defense looks like another 3 or 4 win season. Maybe our next coaching staff will be able to actually make an adjustment at half time.

    Running back depth chart

    AP may start at the top, but Guice will evolve into the bell cow. If he can stay healthy he is going to be the man.

    Jordan Reed Is In Concussion Protocol

    Report said he felt concussion like symptoms in the locker room at halftime and was placed in the protocol. This could be a simple as a headache (completely understandable after a shot to the head) so let's not start retiring him until we hear a little more. With a couple weeks to recover I will be very surprised if he is not ready for game one.

    PRESEASON GAMEDAY THREAD- REDSKINS @BROWNS

    Exactly why he needs all the snaps he can get in preseason. Physical talent is there, but lacks the experience. Keep learning DH, by mid season you will be the man.
  9. The Redskins run game is based on play action; without a threat down field it just doesn't work. Unfortunately Colt just doesn't instill fear on the secondary. He can be successful in the short term living underneath, but this is not a sustainable winning solution. He and Case can be the bridge to Haskins, but the offense will open up with Haskins just because of his arm. I'm sure he will make rookie mistakes, but I think the upside out ways the risk. As soon as Haskins feels comfortable with the offense (play calling to execution) I say put him him in and start the future. Don't rush him, as previously mentioned I don't think we are a QB away from the Super Bowl this year, but get him in as soon as possible and let him learn. I think, for the first time in a long time, we are actually moving in the right direction.

    Running back depth chart

    Gotta be Guice, with AP as the relief. I think they wii keep Perine and he will get some carries. Number of carries for all should be based on performance, stick with the hot hand theory. Definitely see a RB by committee unless Guice just goes crazy. Should be a strong backfield; with a couple blocks good things could happen. HTTR!
  11. There are a few exceptions, but overall college coaches are paid to win games not groom pro's. In many cases these are not mutually exclusive, but the QB position seems to be the biggest transition. Also, the games started in college are often not sufficient to adequately prepare QBs for the complexity and speed of the pro game. Haskins has so few starts it is not surprising that it might take some time to be proficient enough in the offense to be effective. That's why McCoy has such an advantage coming into camp with his multiple years in the system. I believe Keenum is a better overall QB than McCoy, but his lack of experience in this system will take him a while to catch up. I also believe Haskins skill set exceeds both of theirs and once he becomes proficient in the offense will clearly be the starter. I guess my overall thought is don't be disappointed in Haskins performance thus far, he is going to be alright.
  12. College does not prepare QB's for pro football. Every QB evolves at their own pace. By all accounts Haskins is progressing well; getting better everyday. I think it is great that he may have the opportunity to continue to prepare behind Keenum or McCoy. I read your reigning league MVP couldn't call a complete play in the huddle when his rookie season started. This years #1 pick got the luxury of going to a pro team that runs his college program. I still expect him to struggle because of the lack of talent around him. Haskins is going to be the man when his time comes, the more time he has this season to get ready the better he will be when called. HTTR!

    !!!!0mgz!!!! Trent Williams finally showed up

    Football is a business. It's by no means a perfect business but its employees are paid excessively well for their efforts. Employees become disgruntled all the time with valid and invalid complaints; employees have the option of living with it and getting paid, doing your job while lobbying for change and getting paid, or leaving and not getting paid. Based on all I have read, Trent is not a dumb guy. I expect he will use whatever leverage he has to effect whatever change he desires, but he will not pass up the income available to prove his point. The only way I see Trent not our LT on opening day (if physically able) is if he is traded, but I find it highly unlikely an equitable trade will be available. I suspect the Redskins will increase the guaranteed funds and waive all the fines so both sides can save face.

    !!!!0mgz!!!! Trent Williams finally showed up

    He most likely has several legitimate issues with this organization (from top to bottom), but money is the only thing that will resolve the issue. I believe he will be back at left tackle when he is physically able with a little more guaranteed jingle in his pocket. He has been a great Redskin, often a bright spot in a heaping pile of poo, and I hope he retires a Redskin.

    !!!!0mgz!!!! Trent Williams finally showed up

    Everything is ultimately about money. Money may not have been the primary motivater, but money will be the only thing that resolves the issue. I am confident he could find a way to overcome all his other objections if the cash is right.

    !!!!0mgz!!!! Trent Williams finally showed up

    Assuming our new left tackle is telling the truth, Trent recommended he sign. Leads me to a couple questions: 1. If Trent was really unhappy and distrustful of the organization would he really recommend it to his friend? 2. If Trent was thinking he would ever return would he recommend his friend come in with the impression he will be the starting LT? I thought Penn handled his press conference extremely well. He said if Trent came back he could be the swing tackle. That sounds like a great outcome. It was pretty clear he preferred to stay on the left side.

    I'm with Trent. Fire Bruce and replace the entire medical staff. Get Trent in camp, hire a General Manager to handle only business decisions. It's a win-win for the organization.

    !!!!0mgz!!!! Trent Williams finally showed up

    If Robinson and Flowers are starting on opening day we are in serious trouble. I'll include Penn in this list if he gets desperate and drops his salary demands and signs later.

    !!!!0mgz!!!! Trent Williams finally showed up

    Trents level of participation at camp would be extremely limited at best. If he is quasi staying in shape it will all be OK. RELAX, the sky is not falling.
  22. Last year is not a very good sample to evaluate our WR's. We started with Alex who is super conservative and is the king of check down. Once he was injured and the Oline fell one by one, the parade of QB's behind a makeshift OL hadn't the skill or time to throw downfield. Colt actually looked OK until he got broke and then it went down hill fast (we actually started the butt fumbler). I expect with Case or Dwight the ball will fly around a bunch more and we'll get a chance to see if any of our WRs can produce. I think camp and preseason will sort them out.

    Mason Foster released

    It appears to me that they made the decision weeks/months ago that he was gone and they did not want him back in the locker room. After trying all other known means to get him off the roster (shocking no one would give up anything for a relatively non athletic (compared to peers) 2 down ILB), they had to cut him to keep him away. Image isn't great, but I agree it's what needed to happen. My take on Bostic is that he is basically a more atletic and less expensive version of Foster. Good motor, good tackler and his speed give him a slightly higher probability to be a 3 down ILB. I do do like the youth movement.

    Mason Foster released

    The skins wanted Foster to be a 3 down linebacker, even 20 lbs lighter that is not what he is. A lot of draft capital spent to stop run, need an ILB that provide a bit more. Not sure who thatis going to be, but I understand why they want to make the change.

    Mason Foster released

    They have been trying to replace Foster for awhile, I guess they finally got the incentive to get it done. Whether because they like other guys better or need cash for other priorities I think we are moving the right direction.
