    Evaluating Jay Gruden in 2018

    Mark Sanchez is our QB behind a 3rd stringer-filled OL. How on early does Gruden take the blame? No coach is overcoming this train wreck.

    Not sure if you're really a Skins fan, but given your name and first few posts here, you're firmly in the troll category.

    I agree. We essentially have a polar opposite QB on our hands now; we went from ultra-conservative to ultra-liberal. The problem is that you can't teach an old dog new tricks and just like Alex couldn't let it loose, I don't know if McCoy will be able to dial it back. Regardless, it should be an interesting end of the season. Given the injuries, I don't see the run game rebounding to what it was, so a gunslinger may be our only hope.

    Alex Smith Actual Status

    I wish Alex only the best with his recovery. He's a stand up guy and will hopefully find a way to play again. That being said, at his age, this could certainly be a career-ender. The issue for the team is that they likely won't have a better idea until next season. Realistically, I see Alex still recovering 12 months from now and eating up $22M of cap... Unless he does the selfless thing and retires, which I don't expect, it will put this team in a hole.

    I wasn't. Safe QB play was a general statement regarding not turning the ball over. Oh he certainly didn't beat the Cowboys himself, but he didn't lose it (classic Alex). 3 interceptions loses games plain and simple. My wild guess would be that 10% of teams win games when they're -3 in TO differential. I like that Colt has a bit of gunslinger in him, but we're an average team, especially at this point with the injuries piled up and we won't have a chance in many games if we turn the ball over like that. He's essentially a poor man's Kirk Cousins... I don't think many at all, if any, considered Alex an upgrade. I was cautiously optimistic, as were many, that he would do well, but certainly didn't view it as an upgrade.

    I thought I made it pretty clear that I wasn't comparing QBs in my original post... Don't play the hypothetical game especially when Alex already beat the Cowboys this year. Now stop making me stand up for him.

    For sure it's a combination, but if we had "safe QB play" and that TO differential vs the Cowboys was 0 instead of -3...

    You don't understand the relationship? When we were winning, our turnover differential was +12, give or take one. The pick-six vs the Texans and the -3 TO differential vs the Cowboys were main factors in our losses. I'm not doing an Alex vs Colt thing as Alex threw the pick-six, but it seems fairly obvious that safe QB play is strongly correlated to us winning. Also, the effing refs. All season I'd say the refs had been fair, but between the last 4 mins of the Texans game and the whole Cowboys game, we got the red-headed stepchild treatment. I'm glad that game was on Thanksgiving for all to see. I just went to get my car emissioned (in NY) and was wearing my Skins hat and a couple of the guys started talking about the game. I said my usual "ah hey, Snyder has lowered the bar so much for me that I'm just content with playing meaningful games in November." And they went on to say how we've gotten crushed by injuries and the thanksgiving game was a joke, etc. Sure, I say the same sort of things to fans of teams who aren't doing so hot, but it was good to see that this isn't just ES shenanigans.

    Redskins vs Texans Prediction Thread: Pessimistically Optimistic?

    Scary matchup against a great defense with a very good QB... We haven't been putting up points vs bad defenses, so I'm not sure how we keep up in this one. That being said, 23-17 Skins.
  10. Dez practice 1: looks to have suffered a torn achilles. Hahahahah... not laughing at him, just at all of the people who were beating up the FO for not signing him.
  11. Hahaha you're too much... next is "Gruden should have hired a better equipment staff who would have ordered better gloves so that Docston wouldn't have dropped those passed." Enough already man. And no, the DL was terrible. Go re-watch the game, I already did. They were consistently tossed wherever the Falcons wanted them. You have to be extremely naive to place no blame on the DL when we gave up 6.5 yard avg rush.

    Redskins Lead NFC East

    This is a very educated fanbase, we all knew that our success had come against predominantly run-first/bad QB teams. And, good QBs chewed us up and spit us out. The Falcons fit this mold and did to us what we all hoped to avoid. We've invested heavily, recently, in the D, so they need to be the ones to carry the team. Giving up long scoring drive after long scoring drive is something that we'll never overcome. We don't have a great offense, but this game could have been different had it not been for the penalty and drops on the first few drives. We're all very aware that we don't have the studs on offense to come back from a large deficit, or much adversity at all for that matter. Especially now, given the recent injuries. I think that we're saying the same thing?

    Evaluating Jay Gruden in 2018

    I won't ask you to prove it, that would be digging back a bit too far. I recall everyone upset to see him go, including myself, but most people didn't think he was ready to be a head coach. You also need to remember the situation and the politics of it. I don't think that you're understanding. I assume that your take was that the second that the Skins heard about McVay interviewing in LA, the should have fired Gruden and tried to hire McVay. What if McVay said no? What if the FO wanted to keep Gruden to give them a better chance of retaining Cousins? There is so much more to this than "Fire Gruden, Hire McVay" and the way that you're presenting it is extremely naive.

    Redskins Lead NFC East

    Agreed. And the same can be said for the other side of the coin, giving up 35 points per game isn't sustainable... unless you're the Chiefs or Saints. We don't have a potent offense, and given our recent string of injuries on the OL and WR, I don't imagine that this will change for the better. We will win with our defense. We've invested a lot of resources in them and they are almost 100% healthy, they need to play much better.
