  1. Ok, so we just hand it off to All Day for another 90+ yard run, right?
  2. WHAT A FANTASIC HANDOFF BY SANCHEZ!
  3. Crap, Sanchez is gonna play. Wonder if Gruden had enough time this week to get him some practice reps.
  4. I'd be up for a uniform change if it came with a change in the front office (or ownership) as a symbol of a fresh start. Otherwise, just wear the classic burgundy/white look (sorry to those that loved the gold pants and/or wanted to see the gold jerseys). Bust out the occasional throwback, maybe changing it up from season to season. As much as I dig the current throwback jersey, I wouldn't mind seeing 72-78 uniform. And if the NFL would change the one helmet rule or find some way to wrap them up differently for a game, then bring back either of the 60s looks (feather or spear helmet).
  5. Right as I was about to say that mixed extra point might bight us after scoring on this drive...
  6. Is it wrong that the only thing I'm looking forward to now is Snyder overreacting and firing a bunch of people (hopefully not Tomsula, think that guy should get a promotion if anything)?
  7. God, I thought that was going to be another pick.
  8. I'm genuinely surprised they didn't give up a TD on third down. That can't be good.

    2019 Comprehensive Draft Thread

    I know QB seems like a must now, but if there's no one worth taking high then don't reach for one. OT, OG, CB, ILB, and an Edge are the areas of need in my opinion. Solidifying the offensive line with a new LG and adding some depth at OT (seeing as how both starters seem injury prone) must be done before putting in a new QB. Fixing a few spots on the D would be essential to keep them competitive. Assuming Preston Smith and Josh Norman are gone (which many of my fellow Skins fan friends have told me is a likelihood), that'd create some holes on the defensive side of the ball. And we need an ILB who can cover. If we are somehow in a position to draft CB Greedy Williams, that'd be my number one. But since he'd most likely be gone by the time we pick, I think OT Jonah Williams or OG Ross Pierschbacher work well. Both add to the line and keep the Alabama thing rolling. DE Joe Jackson out of Miami has me intrigued, but I do have a strong bias towards the U. I'd rather the team go with Colt or some other vet for another year while building around him than reach for someone at QB. I'm sure future QB classes will be better, so draft one then when the foundation is in place for a rookie QB to succeed.

    Can we stop pretending now?

    I'll give this team credit for coming back from a deep hole and even getting a lead after trailing by double digits. After 2 interceptions in 3 plays, I could have easily seen some calling it quits (I know I thought the game was over at that point), so hats off to them for staying in it. A nasty injury to the starting QB could also have been a deflater, but the team rallied behind Colt and kept going. Credit to where credit is due, the team was mentally tough and looked good against a good team. The 63 yard field goal attempt at the end however... I didn't agree with that at all. When the kicker's record long is 56 yards (and that kick maybe would have been good from an extra yard back) going for a 60+ yard field goal seemed like giving up. I know it's easier said than done to throw for ten yards and go out of bounds in about 5 seconds, but I still think they had a better shot at that than kicking from there.

    Legendary Comic Book Writer/Editor Stan Lee Dies

    Stan Lee was an amazing, once in a hundred years kind of person. It wasn't just his writing or creating characters for Marvel, but also how he ran the company as editor-in-chief/chairman, building an iconic brand from the ground up that made me look up to him. RIP to the legend, the one and only, Stan "The Man" Lee.

    Evaluating Jay Gruden in 2018

    I say let Jay finish this season but then move on from him. This team looks unprepared after bye weeks and is laughable with 2nd half adjustments. Sure, the roster is banged up, but I don't know how long you can blame mediocracy on injuries. Players get hurt all the time in this league. Great/very good coaches can adapt to that. Some people are better coordinators than head coaches. That might be Jay's thing. Hell, I'd love to be proven wrong and have something click in Jay that has this team looking like a legit contender, but all I've seen has this team in that 9-7 to 7-9 range.

    Can we stop pretending now?

    This team is average at best. The silver lining is that the division is struggling. Maybe the Skins make the playoffs, but I don't see them winning that game if they do. Part of me thinks it'd be worse for the team to win the division because it'd give Dan a reason to keep the GM and Coaches that lead them there.
  14. Any way we could trade Jay to his brother in Oakland/Las Vegas? Maybe he'd want him as a QB coach? OC? Hell, I say throw in Bruce Allen as part of the deal.
  15. I'm not usually one to say the refs are told to help one team over another, but the fact that the Skins are getting called for any little thing while Atlanta has everything ignored (except for when a defender crossed the line, but hell, I'm stunned they didn't say he was drawn) is ridiculous.
  16. These next two games are huge regardless of their opponents record. Skins win against NY, that's 5-2 with the 2nd place team in the division guaranteed to have a minimum of 4 losses. They go on to beat ATL as well (6-2), PHI and DAL play that same week, so one of them is slated for another L. The division won't be won this early but the lead would give the Skins some breathing room. The team needs to take each game serious, avoid the traps.

    Redskins to sign Adrian Peterson per NFL.com

    I would love to bring Peterson back next season assuming the price is right. We were lucky to get him on a one year prove it deal. So far he's proved he still has it. I'd start negotiating extension now to try and keep him around a bit longer on a relatively cheap deal as I don't see vet minimum being something that'll keep him with his kind of production.
  18. We know he sucks as a QB but with the string of injuries, how about trying Hogan at RB?
  19. Well, Quinn's had two punt returns for positive yards and no fumbles. I say the job is his.
