    The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    https://thefandc.radio.com/this-bruce-allen-dan-snyder-story-is-outrageous?fbclid=IwAR1PjKLFNCPuPFE3YQDqYOxgTbDPq_VGFBpB15keV5SVKEtFjaefvdy5QY0 "The story is just that (Dan) used to, at certain times, like come out of his office upset, screaming about where Bruce was because Bruce was late for tee time," Paulsen began. "So he'd be like, 'WHERE'S BRUCE?' And everyone's like, 'I don't know. What do you mean, where's Bruce?' He's like, 'He's supposed to be in here! We've got a 3 o'clock tee time!' It's like 3:06." "Except he's like yelling and cursing at people," Rouhier chimed. "He's like, 'I need Bruce! We're supposed to be playing right now!' Bruce has to then be notified that he's late for his tee time," Paulsen continued, "and come running into Dan's office and they go play their golf." Hey Morons -If you focus on playing sub-par games off the field, you'll be stuck playing sub-par games on the field.

    I agree with this. Only switch out Todd Bowles for Gregg Williams

    It's going to be Doug Williams. It shouldn't be, but it will be. Dan is forever stuck in nostalgia mode and thi nks this is going to be the ultimate "reveal" to get people excited. Too bad for the fanbase. He'd rather keep losing "his way" than win by doing what every other team in the league does and hire the most qualified people for the job. All flash, no substance. In his mind he needs to have someone with a "recognizable name", and then try and TEACH them the job of GM. He thinks he needs to sell a name to the fans that they remember and just hope they are competent at a job that has nothing to do with what they are famous for. Instead, he needs to hire someone whose name is famous from being a successful GM. Not a player, not the son of a coach, not a media talking head. If he wanted a GM, he'd hire someone who is a GM. He wants a yes man, so he'll hire a "face" that he can market as a GM, and then cross his fingers that this person will somehow be halfway competent at the job despite not being qualified.

    Welcome to the NFL Dwayne Haskins QB Ohio State

    Watching how the Steelers are handling Mason Rudolph's baptism by fire and are still managing to stay competitive vs. how our FO is babying Dwayne and setting progressively lower and lower expectations for what is "just normal for a rookie QB" is really starting to piss me off. I'll make a sig bet with anyone on the board that Rudolph earns the respect of his teammates for gutting out his rookie year in horrendous circumstances, becomes a better QB because of it, and has a better, longer, more productive NFL career than Haskins. The front office and coaching staff is doing him no favors.

    The sudden lack of chemistry with McLaurin concerns me.

    If Dan was smart he'd secretly buy the rights and profit off of the sales

    He's pretty questionable even without a pec injury

    !!!!0mgz!!!! Trent Williams finally showed up

    The most bizzare thing out of all of this is the guy who decided that ping pong during trent's press conference was an appropriate activity

    So did Bruce wait until the last minute just to ensure Williams lost the most amount of gameday checks before trading him? Because it sure seems that way.

    Game Night Thread- Skins at Vikes

    Well its official. That pre-game hype video has me convinced that Doug Williams will be the named the next GM for the Washington Redskins. Most likely at the end if the season.

    Erosion Of The Redskins Fanbase

    I've actually reached the point where I'm enjoying the Redskins more lately than I have in years, but with one big condition. I treat the Redskins and the NFL as two completely separate entities. I play fantasy football and watch redzone on Sundays when I'm in the mood to see the sport played well. I watch the Redskins with the mindset of a soap opera or reality tv with unlikeable, but compelling characters. I don't expect them to win, I don't bet on them, and I'm not invested in them at all. I'm a passive observer. The boneheaded moves and tone-deaf actions of the front office are extremely entertaining if you view them as a free weekly TV show. My friends and I still gather around the watercooler on Mondays to discuss the latest developments with the team, but at this point the product they put on the field in no way represents a professional sports team. It is still entertaining drama though. I absolutely am still entertained by their "watch what we do this week" mindset, even if its unintentionally self-destructive. I love being able to tell my friends all the ridiculous things this franchise has done over the years. The crazy streaks they've broken, the way were constantly doing things no other team would ever consider, stories of Dan suing fans and selling expired concessions, creatively finding new ways to hit rock bottom, etc. It makes for great conversation. Kyle Shanahan giving the game ball to his Dad as a big FU to Snyder? You can't make that stuff up. And I wouldn't miss them having to play "suddenly awesome" Cousins this Thursday for anything. The compelling story lines write themselves. Do yourself a favor and take a step back. It's entirely possible to have your cake and eat it too. It was sad 10 years ago, now its just another option for entertainment.

    Id rather get a Browns player from their secondary than a TE. We won't be running Gruden's offense next season anyway so who knows what sort of role the TE will have going forward. CB takes care of the Norman problem and we can look for TEs in free agency/ draft next offseason that fit what the new HC wants to do.

    The Conspiracy Thread

    Just to put this on the radar. The refs who botched the Packers/Lions Game last night will be officiating the Redskins game next week. http://www.footballzebras.com/2019/10/week-7-referee-assignments-2019/ We made a concerted effort to meet with officials last week and determine proper technique along the lines. The result was a season low for flags and penalties called on our offense. (zero called according to this site) https://www.nflpenalties.com/team/washington-redskins?year=2019 I will be very interested to see how our linemen are treated this week. Vegas and sports betting sites will obviously be expecting a 49ers victory, let's see if our offense goes back to its "1st and 20" tendency this week.
