    Reuben Foster Will Not Be Suspended!!

    I'm going to be a lot happier about this if Foster has a quiet and uneventful year off the field. I was disappointed the Skins got him and I hope his off-the-field behavior will be better going forward but I am not optimistic.

    So it was bad luck the last couple of seasons? Rubbish, these guys have health issues and the OL is going to break down again this season. If you sources of information are defending a clearly depleted OL you need new sources of information.

    2019 Comprehensive Draft Thread

    The Skins like every other team in the NFL, even the good ones, have multiple needs. We probably agree on most of the needs; a QB, better receivers, young tight end, a end rusher, a safety and others. All needs in my view but all dwarfed by collapse of the OL, the most important unit on any football team. Draft a great young QB and put him behind this line? Forget about it. Draft a killer deep threat receiver? With this QB behind this OL what is the point? Enhance an already good DL with a great end rusher, it might help but only marginally when the OL collapses again.

    A draft board is not a Periodic Table, the values on a draft board are without question subjective, capricious and frequently ridiculous. If the Redskins with an undermanned and unhealthy OL that collapsed the last two seasons doesn't use its top picks to address this foundational problem they deserve to lose.

    We are going to have to agree to disagree. You apparently are a true blue BPA guy and I am not especially when it comes to the OL which is the most important unit on any football team. At 15 there will be a good starting OT available or a great starting guard, there is in any draft and the OL is what the team needs to improve. Of course, there will be other athletes available at 15. There will be lots of talent available at 47 for next pick too which should be a OG. I don't give a crap about the so-called BPA nonsense, I want a decent OL going forward.

    Horse manure, absolute horse manure. A good OT or a great OG is going to be @ 15 to suggest otherwise is ridiculous. Did you like playing with an OL they found at the bus station during 2017 & 2018?

    I don't want to be full-on snarky but what team have you been watching? I don't care what PFF had to say I watched them and the Redskins OL hasn't been able to get tough yardage in the red zone on the ground for years, healthy or not. When healthy they could pass block long enough for Cousins and Smith but they don't stay healthy and they don't run block well enough, equally importantly they have broken down badly two years in a row, new guys are needed. We need to draft a young tackle in the first round and a young guard in the second. If another good interior OL is available in round 3 I'd take him also. I don't expect the Skins to be able to challenge in 2019 but they should be able to rebuild the OL and have a good OL in 2020 for a rookie QB. Repair the OL now and get a QB and some receivers in 2020.

    If you are making the 15th pick in the first round and the best available OL is considered a 4th round talent on your board than the guy(s) who made your board need to be fired, to suggest otherwise is simply absurd. Equally absurd would be going into 2019 with the same OL and hoping for a different result.

    The top 2 picks need to be OL, anything else is just stupid.

    Starting QB 2019???

    Sorry, I couldn't resist, feel free to mock my next earnest question.

    Starting QB 2019???

    Interesting question. There has to be a reason that the Cardinals appear ready to move on instead of using their top pick to address another need. A few decades ago I worked with a younger, personable and extremely attractive woman. If I had been single I would have gone after her and said so to a coworker and close friend. He said there is a reason she is unattached and seemed to unable to find the right guy, there is a reason. What reason I asked and he said he didn't know but that he was certain there has gotta be a reason. As far I know she never did find a husband, for some reason, her relationships never lasted because there was a reason. Don't know what it is but my friend was right there was a reason. What has this got to do with Rosen? Maybe nothing, probably nothing, but I remember Rosen fell in the draft before getting picked by Phoenix and after getting selected ran his mouth saying how he was going to prove everyone wrong. I remember thinking at the time how much smarter and powerful it would be to just think that and work to prove that but Rosen let the tiger out of cage instead. Now Phoenix is shopping him around to spend the top pick in the draft for what might end up being a pig in a poke. Say what you will about Murray or any other QB picked really early I say success is hardly certain. Phoenix is willing to take this risk because they have lost hope in Rosen, why?

    Rosen has all that and more which is why the Cardinals want to draft a less talented guy with their #1 pick and see what they can get for Rosen....

    Excellent! Well, that certainly worked out for Green Bay, thank you for reminding us!

    Starting QB 2019???

    We can agree that Rosen is young, unlike the fading glories that Dan got from Andy Reid but is Rosen talented? Phoenix no longer thinks so after a year of working with him because they looking to dump him in favor of a college player. Don't bother telling me that Murray is so spectacular the Cardinals have to make the move because we all know if Rosen had come anywhere close to fulfilling their expectations they wouldn't be making this move. They wouldn't be making this move if they were even hopeful about Rosen. Does anyone remember a deal like this in the past that worked out for the acquiring team? I can't recall something similar. For whatever reason Rosen wore out his welcome quickly. I think Dan Snyder makes the calls like this, not Bruce Allen.

    Starting QB 2019???

    If he is so talented then why would the Cardinals abandon him? Don't bother saying Rosen is tremendous but Murray or whoever is super tremendous so they just have to up to upgrade from tremendous to super tremendous because that just doesn't fly. I've seen way too many busts to believe the Cardinals or any other competent franchise would drop a tremendous guy in the hope of getting a super tremendous guy in the draft. Andy Reid must have made some bucks on the side explaining to the Cardinals how to super arouse Dan Snyder's erogenous zones as only Andy knows how.
