  1. What did Foster say? How come no one started a thread about it?

    "Kurt" would probably disagree with you

    Alex Smith Actual Status

    I just have a horrible feeling that our front office will hold on to Smith way longer than necessary to try and save face and sell his comeback to the fanbase instead of proactively looking for his replacement. Or they'll throw a pity party and try to make him look like the bad guy for keeping them on the hook for his contract. I want Alex to recover but from a selfish football standpoint, his time on the field in Washington should be over. Not interested in watching a 36 year old trying to rehab a brutal injury being the focal point for an already molasses slow offense.

    2018 Embrace [Insert QB name here] Thread

    around 11 minutes in. I mean I get its a famous thing but the guy is brand new here in a tough situation and trying to be upbeat and positive. Pretty classless and idiotic question that has nothing to do with the current situation.

    He's entertaining if nothing else. Loved the way he called out the reporter who tried bringing up the butt fumble.

    The Conspiracy Thread

    Gruden addressing the unusually large amount of holding calls against the Redskins in his recent press conferences. Glad to see that they are at least fighting back and sending these questionable calls into the league office for review From December 4th: On being near the top of the league in holding penalties: "Holding calls, I can’t put my hand on the holding calls. We’ve sent a lot to the league and some of them we get back they’re not holding, some of them we get back, they are holding and then you look around the other teams and they’re doing similar-type stuff. I don’t know what it is right now with the holding calls. It’s been one of our major problems. You look at all the holding calls we’ve had and how many drives they’ve destroyed. It’s been the number one reason, A – why the running game’s been affected, and B, why our drives have been affected. False starts last night obviously, new quarterback, new guards and the noise, it was very difficult for us to function as a group there and it’s something we got to do better at. Playing at home will be a big major advantage for us. We’ll be able to use our snap count and be able to communicate verbally as opposed to non-verbally with those new guards in there tapping the center and head bobbing and all that stuff. So, yeah that was an issue. But holding calls have been an issue for us all year and we’ve been coaching them up and we’ve been getting called a few more times than other teams for some reason." From December 6th: On offensive line penalties: "Yeah, it's been the biggest problem we've had, quite honestly. I don’t know how many holding calls we've had, I'm sure we're leading the league by a long shot and it's been a major problem. Some of the calls we've had called on us, we get back and they weren’t called, so it's hard to say that they're not being taught right sometimes. But, for whatever reason, people are looking at our holding calls a little bit closer and are calling them and we have to just understand. We have to get our hands off, we've got to get our hands inside, run our feet and not take people to the ground. That’s been a problem and it's been addressed. We talk about it all the time. I know Coach [Bill] Callahan is a great offensive line coach and we teach great technique here and fundamentals, but we've been called. But, the false starts, that’s inexcusable. That’s something that is a discipline issue and that falls directly on the head coach and just focusing in. We've got to focus in a little bit better." From December 10th: On the penalties: "Yeah, I mean throw a flag, there's a couple of them that I have really major questions on. At the end of the day, it's kind of like that every week. You could probably watch the film and go back and rewind it ten times and you'd find a holding call on every play or not a holding call on any play that they called, so no matter how you look at it I guess. It is an issue that has haunted us all year. We lead the league in penalties and it continues to get worse. I think when you have a league lead in penalties, I think it alerts the referees before the game and they might watch us a little more closely, I told our guys today. With that being said, obviously, we have to do a better job of getting our hands out and get our hands off the facemask. But, 14 penalties to two penalties, a little odd but we have to deal with it and we have to overcome them." On if there is a specific technique that is forcing penalties on the offensive line: "You know, I don’t think it’s a technique we're teaching that’s getting called. We're getting called all different kinds of ways. We get called on the wrap-around every once in a while, we get called on the takedown, we get called on hands to the face. We got called on something, I watched the play back 30 times and was trying to figure out which player held and still don’t know. I think they called it on our right guard and I don’t know what he did. But, I don’t know, we just have to get it cleaned up, whatever it is."
  7. Perhaps, but Suds got the ring....

    I was a former groundskeeper for the skins... Unless they pay me cash up front even I wouldn't touch this offense with a 10 foot pole
  9. Sudfield must feel like the luckiest guy on earth for being able to dodge this trainwreck
  10. Guice and Macaulay Culkin look great!
  11. It sure helped redirect the focus off of Allen and Snyder though didn't it?

    The Conspiracy Thread

    Deliberately made calls by officials that influence the outcome of ANY game, regardless of who the two teams are, is still a conspiracy. Refs influencing games to fit a desired outcome, ANY DESIRED OUTCOME, is something that should not be happening. Just because that desired outcome doesn't always involve the Redskins doesn't mean it doesn't exist. This thread is designed to deal ONLY with those instances that DO include the Redskins. THE TWO ARE NOT MUTUALLY EXCLUSIVE. You're trying to combine two separate arguments, whether the refs influence games, and whether the refs influence Redskins games. Its like saying, "This article you wrote about the mafia covering up a murder in DC is stupid and can't be true. There's no grand plan to cover up a murder. People get murdered by the mob in different cities all the time. Every city has these types of stories about people getting murdered". Just because it happens other places doesn't invalidate it happening here. Sometimes the NFL has an agenda that involves screwing us over, sometimes it involves screwing over someone else. This thread is designed to chronicle examples ONLY OF THE FORMER.
