    NFL Press Release: DeAngelo Hall Joins NFL Network

    DHall's post-football career timeline: Positive Redskins PR rounds on the networks ---> Works w/ Redskins scouts during pre-draft ---> Scouting/FO stint goes nowhere ---> Joins CSNWwashington post game show ---> Gets very blunt, to the point & realistic about the Skins on post game show ---> Moves on to national TV with NFLN. I thought he was good on TV, both talking nice and not so nice about the Skins. But it was clear as day the Skins threw him a bone and he was out making the rounds, selling the team's message. After that went nowhere, he started getting real.

    New development: Trent Williams wants to be traded/released

    You just can't help yourself and had to make my point for me. You are infamous for making things personal. Your trademark is to insert some type of negative reference to how people are in real life. I'm not quite sure why you are so obsessed with how people you'll never meet are in real life. The homeristic view I was referring to had nothing to do with homers predicting Super Bowls. I think you know good and well that's not what I meant but it strengthens your stance to argue against something nobody said. A common tactic of yours. It's about the very few of you left that continue to go to bat for the suits in Ashburn. There is almost always some type of backhanded compliment or insult to your opposition about how sad our lives must be, or that we're sheep, or whatever else.

    Sure, it would suck to live real life like that. For whatever reason, devout homers like to prop themselves up like they are the beacons of rationale, logic and positivity. And anyone who doesn’t follow them are just miserable chicken littles. This is football and entertainment. I doubt any of the chicken littles you speak of are losing sleep over this team these days. Galdi on now saying Trent just posted an Instagram story with him about to go under the knife for something. No details, rather cryptic.

    Galdi kept replaying a clip from yesterday where Doc had Doug on his show. Doc asked Doug if Trent was going to be fined for not showing up to OTA's and Doug responded that he wasn't sure Trent wasn't there due to his contract, or something of that nature. Personally, I don't put much credence in anything Doug says, as he's not the most prepared or polished when a mic is in his face. Still a lot in the dark on this one and imagine it's going to stay that way until camp.

    Will the "Spirit of the Cap" exist in 2020?

    I'm certain it will. Got burnt the last time, it would be stupid to try again. So we probably will.

    I do understand that, but it's something that every team has to deal with. Great teams, good teams, bad teams. Everyone has contract and salary cap issues.

    Trump and his cabinet/buffoonery- Get your bunkers ready!

    Color me unsurprised at hailmarys political affiliation after the last few days of our interaction in the Stadium.

    Definitely north of the 6/84/40gtd Zack Martin got. Skins are in an incredibly tough spot.

    What would be the point of a GM, salary cap, etc. if every team could just cut players because they don’t play up to the standards of their contract? Not to mention the moving parts and variables of a football team that impact individual performance. I’ll also never be able to wrap my head around why fans are in players pockets so much, but see nothing wrong with ownership being trash and making money hand over fist.

    The NFL isn’t the real world most of us work in though. There are parallels to everyday corporate America of course. Like where the guys at the top keep getting rich no matter how poorly they perform and the workers have to pull stunts or outright leave to get more money. So there’s that.

    On that same token, I could say you are making it sound like he signed some mega contract that still stands the test of time. I never said he took a massive hometown discount. I just dont find an elite caliber player, even on the downswing of his career, wanting more guarantees after they run out on what was once a record breaking deal to be surprising or greedy.

    Typically players of Trent Williams caliber, at that point in his career, never hit the open market to find out. Because teams open their wallet to the extent it’s not worth testing. The Skins did that. But rest assured, there is more money on the open market than there is to stick around. Scherff, for example, who is merely a guard- not left tackle, is going to shatter the record for his position, either here or somewhere else. But if it’s here, it will certainly be less than it will be elsewhere. Not a ton less, but less.

    Yeah, just imagine if he would have tested free agency, how badly he would have shattered records. This appears to bother you so much, I’m beginning to wonder if you write the checks.

    Fair take and pretty much where I’m at. I wouldn’t break any records extending him but to add guarantees I think is fair.

    Still would have made more on open market.
