  1. I dunno, when he gets drafted to an NFL team and its coach says "this guy is our QB", it seems safe to say he's not an NCAA QB or a CFL QB. If he starts saying he's Batman, THEN you've got a head case problem.
  2. I'd be kind of concerned if we signed a QB who's first public statement is "I don't consider myself an NFL QB" lol

    The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    Yeah, in the end, Bruce Allen sucks; a great majority of fans and media agree about it. It's going to take a metric buttload of good decisions and good results for that narrative to change. Acknowledging that "hey, this one move that Allen made actually didn't totally suck" does not mean that we all think he completely reversed course is now a good GM. It just means that one move that Allen made actually didn't totally suck.

    The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    The impression I've got is she's saying that Bruce Allen, the person who it's safe to say is hated by 75% of our fans, is being given too much credit, and that much of the disgust held for him was washed away by signing a linebacker who is now injured. I'm just being a smart-ass here and saying that Bruce's reputation is absolutely being influenced by more than one single player.

    Oh. And I here I thought our GM signed Landon Collins, and that people were giving him credit for it. Never mind then.
  6. This is unbelievable. Cutting Chidi for for Adam? No waty! I dunno, that's all I got.

    Landon Collins probably isn't the savior that people have hyped him up to be, but not even playing a down is a bit harsh.

    Would you want HBO Hard Knocks to feature us this year?

    You say this as if fans leaving in droves during a bad season is a bad thing. The state of our franchise is well past the "man it sucked this year, but I'm gonna sit through it anyway and hope it gets better" stage. That was 5 years ago. Last year was a taste of what irrelevance is like, and from the view of people who think the team needs to go nuclear to burn the trash away, that irrelevance tasted good. It hurt. It hurt us, and more importantly, it hurt the ownership. They need to feel pain to know they need to do better.

    I watched a Youtube recording of our opening game against the Giants in 2011. Granted, it was both our season and home opener, but it was still amazing seeing that many Redskins fans turning up for a team led by Rex Grossman. That compared to now was night and day, and I think it's fair to say that our team for the first third of the season was better than anything we had in 2011, especially given our early lead of the division. The way the attitudes have changed has made all the difference. It's going to take years just to get back to that, and every little bit helps. Hard Knocks plus a respectable season would be a good start.
  10. Your post almost sounds like it's supposed to be sarcastic. Almost like our publicly humiliated DC is supposed to enjoy dividing up his authority to share it with his in-house replacement.
  11. I am looking forward to the Frankenstein defense where the coverage and the rush are completely at odds. I think what they need to do is split up even more. Horton designs the coverage, Manusky designs the pass rush, and then they bring in a gameshow host to call the plays during the game. Bonus points if he picks his plays by spinning a wheel.
  12. I gotta give Chernobyl credit. It's the only series I've ever watched that's gone a solid 3 for 3 in making me feel like I've been kicked in the gut after every episode.
  13. Kyle Rudolph would look awesome in burgundy and gold beside Case Keenum and Adrian Peterson. I've always had a soft spot for him, it's hard not to like someone with a name like Rudolph.
