  1. Well, that sounds like BS, I don't like his chances now.

    Welcome to the NFL Dwayne Haskins QB Ohio State

    So he's not a bust yet..... Thanks for letting us know because you were so certain he was DOA just a week or 2 back.

  5. Tsailand, Thanks for posting this article. It is shocking that the Redskins had that much talent in the building. I can imagine a highly successful alternative timeline where the Skins don't waste all those draft choices and time Griffin instead Mike Shanny builds a successful team around Cousins that he turns over to Kyle.

    Forfeiting a first round pick every 3 years

    Teams miss drafting QBs, even competent teams miss. What I find so maddening about the Redskins is they had a really good QB on their roster for years and didn't understand it, now that there really requires a special brand of stupid. They're that close!

    Welcome to the NFL Dwayne Haskins QB Ohio State

    Of course, he's started what 5 games? So, of course, he's got a lot of improving to do the issue going forward is he progressing. I counsel patience before the initial assessment is made at the end of the year. He's got 3 more games to play hopefully we see additional progress and he warrants an acceptable progress report.

    Welcome to the NFL Dwayne Haskins QB Ohio State

    Remind please, is Haskin's 4th start? I think it is so I don't care to hear any discouraging words about him yet, it's premature. Let's wait until the end of the season before he gets his initial assessment. Which means another 3 games against division rivals; Philly, NY, and Dallas. Let's see how Haskins looks after these last 3 games. We all know already he isn't the early bloomer of his QB class but I'm hoping he makes a little progress and the Skins are encouraged enough to plan on 16 starts from him in 2020.

    Be afraid. Be very afraid....

    I can't envision the Skins beating GB but I'd love to see it. I'd love to see them sweep their rematches with the Eagles, Giants, and Cowboys also, I don't see that happening. I think them closing out strong with an unexpected win streak would do far more for them than losing out and getting earlier draft picks.

    2020 Comprehensive Draft Thread

    The Skins need to use their first-round pick for a LT, any other choice will be stupid and make my head will explode. Any sensible, well-managed franchise losing their LT would want to replace him with the best LT in the draft. But alas, knowing the Skins they'll do something stupid instead. I'm not sure what that will be but I'm confident they will manage to do something stupid that they will think will be devilishly clever.

    If the Skins win 3 of the next 4 those that argue that Callahan and Haskins are moving the team forward will have a point.

    Redskins vs Packers Prediction Thread: Cheezy Wins

    I foresee a one-sided game like this also. It might be a tough outing from Haskins, the Pack has too much. I hope you are right, I'd love to see it. I think a win in GB against the Packers would even excite the hope the asteroid hits us so we can rebuild crowd but who knows I think their loons anyway....
  13. No, Gruden is offense-oriented whereas Zimmer is hyper-conservative, run and defense-oriented.
