    The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    Just a few more factoids based on the season so far to back up Allen's "We're close" comment. Oh, and Old Man Callahan said the same thing on this week's Coaches Show. "We're close" he said. I think they're right based on these current stats at NFL.com: 1. Win/loss record - 31st out of 32 teams 2. Points scored: 32nd 3. Home Record: 32nd, tied with Bengals. One of only 2 teams who have yet to win a home game 4. Division and Conference record: 32nd in both categories, tied with Bengals in former
  2. Listened to Jon Keim's podcast this morning, and he was talking about how dejected Scary Terry was after the game Sunday. How for the first time he declined comment to the media. Said he just looked miserable after facing another loss, and that he's lost more in his short time with the Redskins than he did his entire college career. Made me think about the damage this "damn good culture" could be doing to some of these young guys, and I can't imagine he's happy right now that he was drafted by this team. Hard to believe it's fallen so far, but I'm sure a lot of potential draft picks next year are thinking, "Please, not Washington. Anywhere but Washington."

    Petition to Fire Allen and Hire a Qualified GM

    Does it exist? Link?
  4. I heard that Alex's podcast is actually coming back soon, the one he does at Redskins Park. That's pretty interesting ...
  5. I love it. First off, I simply love that the Nats won. What an amazing story. But the more success these other teams have just makes it so much clearer how utterly inept and pathetic the Redskins currently are. Plus it gives us a bit of relief from the constant oppressing embarrassment of being a fan of this junk yard of a franchise. It hurts, but I want this season to just keep raining down mule kicks to Allen's and Snyder's taints, unrelenting. Only an utter and total disaster of a season like the one we're currently in has the best chance of bringing about any meaningful change, as admittedly small as that chance might be.

    Serious Question: Do you regret letting Cousins go?

    I like Cousins, but I'd take Wentz or Dak over him any day. Jones is admittedly too green at this point to really judge. If I was a Giants fan, though, I'd feel optimistic.

    Serious Question: Do you regret letting Cousins go?

    First off, I don't regret not paying him what he got in Minnesota. That said, let's see .... Character guy Never gets injured Home-grown talent drafted by the team His success lessened the blow of the RG3 failure (this one gets overlooked too often) Set multiple franchise records Strong in the community Yeah, why WOULDN'T we regret letting a douchebag like that go? Of course we should. No, he's not elite. He would still be the worst QB in the division, more than likely. But he's worlds better than anything we have now. It doesn't matter anyway. With the brain-dead trust running this team, everyone is doomed to fail.

    Next Day Thread: Redskins vs. Vikings

    I look at it differently, because it's already out there that Snyder is the one that pushed for this kid despite the opinions of most of the coaches and scouts. It's almost unprecedented in this day and age that a QB picked this high in the draft does not get a chance to play in his first season, especially on a bad team. Mahomes is probably the only other one I can think of who didn't, but he was sitting behind Smith who was having a career year while leading the Chiefs to the playoffs again, so no way they were going to make the change then. We have a 1-7 team with two other QBs who are most likely not going to be here next year and who simply aren't getting it done when they do play. To me, it's far more an indictment of Haskins and looks a lot worse for Dan/Bruce if he continues to sit vs. putting him out there and giving him a chance to learn in the fire. At least in the latter case, you could always say "he's learning, he'll get better." Not playing him at all in a season like this just continues to scream, "This guy sucks and is a potential bust. Good pick, Dan." Unless they're all in for Alex Smith to come back next year, there's only one option here that can have a positive impact on the team's future, and that's to start Haskins. No matter how he performs, you learn something that you can base next year's decisions on. Otherwise, you learn nothing, gain nothing.

    Next Day Thread: Redskins vs. Vikings

    It's way too early to push the dump button on Haskins. Dude has looked terrible, admittedly, but he's come in as relief in both of his games with minimal (if any?) reps with the first team in practice. He needs to START A GAME with a full week of practice behind him. The fact that he isn't starting from here on out is ABSOLUTELY INSANE. There is no future here with Case or Colt. None. Neither one will be on the team next season, most likely. Gotta put Haskins in there, let him make mistakes, let him take a beating if necessary and then see what his progress graph looks like after game 16 and judge him based on that. Only thing I can think of is that Callahan wants a better chance to win now because he's auditioning for the coaching job, but if he can take Haskins and get him NFL-ready by the end of the season, that's a far better bullet point on a résumé to me than grinding out 2 or 3 wins in this abyss of a season with a QB who won't even be on our roster next year.

    Game Night Thread- Skins at Vikes

    Let the pain rain down on this franchise. It's the only hope we have for better days.

    I don't think tonight was difficult at all. Especially when he started that drive deep in Vikings territory and promptly threw a pick in a close game. No sympathy from me. I still want him to play moving forward, though.

    Skins get the ball back with 30 seconds left.

    Most people are smart enough to know that wanting Haskins to play does not equate to anointing him as "the answer." It's just the best alternative right now to play him in this utterly lost season just to see not only what he can do now but if and how he can improve. No one needs to see anymore Case or Colt.

    Whoever's calling plays for the Vikings is keeping us in this game. They should be letting Cousins air it out.
