  1. If Alex Smith was healthy enough to play I'm in that camp. His salary cap hit is there regardless, why pay another back up and use up any available cap space. That said, I do not believe Alex will ever play again. New head coach and OC means a new offense so having Colt losses some value. Case thinks he can still start so he will try to find a better opportunity. If he can't we can probably bring him back relatively cheaply. If he leaves I say we cut Colt and pick up a journeyman. We could draft a QB late or pick one up eligible for the practice squad in case of emergency and to have another arm in camp.
  2. I acknowledge that Burrow excelled in a different system, but I don't agree it means nothing. Guys who coach and evaluate talent for a living watched both guys in that scheme and all agreed Haskins was better. Enough so that they supported Burrows transferring. I fully expect both can be successful in the right scheme.
  3. Just a reminder to everyone who is so willing to dump Dwayne Haskins, he beat out Burrows in an open competition at Ohio State. Burrow saw the light and transferred to LSU. I remain optimistic that DH will continue to improve and be the QB everyone expected him to be when he was drafted.

    2020 Comprehensive Draft Thread

    My ideal draft scenario. Bengals take Burrow with #1 A couple teams get really excited about Tua. Miami believes that Detroit will take Tua 3rd. Makes a lot of noise and an offer to Redskins to jump to 2. Detroit hears all this and offers their first (3rd) and second (35) to jump to #2. Skins accept. Lions draft Tua with the #2. Skins draft Chase Young #3 and added a second round pick. i can dream can't I.

    Welcome to the Redskins Chase Young DE Ohio State

    I expect a significant difference in the defense with the new system and new leadership. If we add talent (.i.e. Chase Young) we will be even better. Last years defense schemes were much too predictable and not executed very well. Way to many guys out of position, guys running uncovered, not maintaining an edge; mix this with poor tackling most of the time you saw the result. I am still very excited that they actually recognized it was broken and made changes. HTTR!
  6. After Monday night, it will take a never before seen trade offer to keep Joe Burrow from being the next starting QB of the Bengals. I believe this years draft starts at three; 1. Joe Burrow (Bengals), 2. Chase Young (Redskins), 3. Detroit is on the clock.

    Welcome to the Redskins Chase Young DE Ohio State

    I think the name of this thread needs to be changed. Talking like this is a done deal is extremely bad form. Maybe just add "Hopefully" to the title. With the Bungles ahead of us and the continually rising opinions of Chase Young anything is possible. All is takes is one team to believe that Young is such a generational pass rusher that they need to do whatever they can to get him. The Bengals have many holes (I understand QB is one of them) that if someone waves enough at them they might jump. I don't expect this; I think Burrows looks great Monday and the Bengals take him. But you never know.
  8. Guice runs hard, but comparing him to Henry is a huge reach. Henry has 20 lbs on him and might even be faster. That said, I hope Guice can stay healthy for an entire year so we can see what he's got.
  9. If Love is 100%, Thompson becomes expendable. If not I think Thompson probably sticks (if we pick up a free agent I think he will be the casualty). He has looked very good in flashes, but can't stay on field. Guice and Love coming with their own injury issues, a third injury prone RB doesn't sound feasible. AP has been the only reliable RB recently, he will be back.
  10. The overall responsibility of a head coach is so comprehensive that he has to surround himself with people he trusts to do their jobs IAW his plan without constant supervision. The area he has the most personal experience (i.e. Defense) he can hire from credentials. This is pretty much exactly what I expected. I have zero doubt we will be a better football team next year, but I don't expect miracles. Just appearing to be an organization run by adults is a great step in the right direction. I'm confident Rob can handle contracts and the administrative duties in a manner that the coach likes. I am a bit intrigued by the analytical angle to his experience. Welcome to the Redskins. HTTR!

    Lots of free agent QBs out there this year. Cincy could decide to go with Bridgewater or any of the other free agents and take the generational pass rusher leaving us in the Burrow driving seat. I think there would be an offer we can't refuse.

    OC - Scott Turner incoming

    I don't know what Bryce Love is now, but if he can become what he was he is better than Thompson. Love was a three down back, not a bruiser up the middle, but quick through the hole and dynamic in open field. He was a huge weapon in the passing game out of the backfield. He was the best back in college football until he hot hurt, front runner for the Heisman Trophy. I sincerely hope taking all this time of he has gotten healthy and ready to contribute.
  13. If you accept as fact that Coach Rivera wants to win and understands he is being evaluated on wins/losses; it is reasonable to believe that he is surrounding himself with coaches he believes will give him the best chance of winning. I understand that not every one agrees on every choice and there is some loyalty to a select few staff members, but he is the HC and these are his choices. To all those who believed that the owner was still meddling and would insist we keep his boy as OC, hope this is evidence that we have turned a corner and football people are now making football decisions (even if you don't agree with them). HTTR.

    OC - Scott Turner incoming

    The culture and performance of this staff and team almost demanded a complete purge. I think all the players, including DH, will benefit from a professional environment and true leadership.
  15. There seemed to be a completely different atmosphere when Rivera stepped to the podium than we have seen in many years. His confidence was very evident. He clearly has the biggest stick and full support of the owner. This is a good day in Washington Redskins story. A lot to be done, but we have taken several steps in the right direction. Happy Thanksgiving. HTTR.

    OC - Scott Turner incoming

    It is just as critical that the HC and OC are of one mind as it is the OC and QB. I fully expect the HC to pick someone he is confident shares his plans and believes he has all the tools to be successful. If KOC can convince the HC that he is that guy; he will get the job. If not, we'll get a new OC. Regardless, I do not believe the HC is under any mandate to keep OC. It is not unreasonable that ownership mentioned there fondness of KOC and it is entirely appropriate for him to get an interview; but I and am very confident that the new HC would never of agreed to a mandate to keep him. It's a big job with a Defensive minded HC, needs to be someone he is 100% confident with.

    Welcome to the Redskins Chase Young DE Ohio State

    It is completely understandable why Mr. Young would have had concerns about joining this organization. The hire of Ron Rivera and potentially Jack Del Rio as DC should make him feel a lot better about the opportunity.
  18. Bleacher Report just posted Jack Del Rio is the leading candidate for D.C. If true, we are definitely getting tougher.
  19. When the dam is leaking, you are not worried about the paint. This team has had a fundamentally disorganized and destructive foundation for a decade. I think Ron is the pefect hire to start repairing a decade of neglect. The Redskins didn't get there over night and they won't fix everything overnight, but this is a step in the right direction. Ron Rivera's reputation instantly helps the "culture" of the team. Realistic and justified hope is a powerful thing.
  20. FYI. Rivera is Puerto Rican. Rivera was a linebacker. That would never have happened.
  21. Everybody, except perhaps the owner, that Trent has a problem will most likely be gone. I think if the day after Ron gets the job he reaches out to Trent he'll start at LT for the Redskins on opening day. If Ron doesn't get a warm fuzzy, trade him for whatever you can get for him. Like Trent says, it's just business.

    4-3 Starting Lineup

    4-3, 3-4 either can work as our base defense. It seems in today's NFL you spend more time in hybrid defenses than your base. That said, Young and Sweat need to have there hand on the ground and rush the passer. That seems to fit the 4-3 pretty well. Until the last couple drafts we didn't have the personnel to play a 4-3 (or a true 3-4), but it seems after this draft we should be pretty well suited. If Foster can get done stay healthy that will help a lot.
  23. Dan doesn't need to fire any coaches, the new Head Coach will take care of that. I am certain that Ron Rivera will insist on control of his own staff. Dan just needs to clean house amongst the folks that worked for Bruce. Understanding this is still Dan, I am a bit optimistic that he is taking these changes on personally. Firing, however warranted, is very personal and not always easy. The important question remaining is whose job is it going to be to replace all these guys? Does he have a GM in mind but is just waiting to get buy in from the new coach? Is his new secret committee going to handle the hiring. While purging is long overdue; we need to replace smartly. Overall, this is a good day.

    2020 Comprehensive Draft Thread

    The only way the Redskins don't draft Chase is (1) He elects to stay in school (2) Some team makes them an offer too good to pass up. I think both are unlikely. Teams don't usually jump up that far unless it is for a QB. If some team is still in love with Tus and they believe they need to get ahead of Miami at 5 it's possible. Go ahead and preorder your Chase jerseys. I will defer my own observations and go with the folks that get paid to assess talent. Chase on one side and Sweat on the other looks pretty strong.

    2020 Comprehensive Draft Thread

    I don't think anyone is calling him a loser, I'm just not drinking the coolaid that he is a generational talent. Great athlete with a huge upside, but he's is definitely NOT Mack or LT right now. If the skins draft him I'll be pulling for him to be all he can be, I truly hope some other team has the same opinion of him as Todd McShay and wants to make us a deal we can't pass up. Without a trade the skins will draft him #2 and I sincerely hope I'm undervaluing his worth. We need him to be what you think he is; not what I think he is. I've never wanted to be wrong more.
