    Game Day Thread: Redskins at Blake Bottles Bench

    Bitter sweet?!? Keeping “Kurt” out of the paloffs would be UNBELIEVABLY sweet, that would make my year!

    Evaluating Jay Gruden in 2018

    True... if they duplicate the same effort at Tennessee on Saturday then he’s probably earned the benefit of the doubt... Which is exactly what I’m afraid of, because I’m firmly in the “Jay and Bruce both need to go” camp...

    Alex Smith Actual Status

    Man I hope you're right.... this whole things sucks on so many levels (most of all for Alex, who, despite what you may think of the decision to sign him or the length of the guaranteed extension, seems like a completely excellent person and great teammate), but at least if the injury does end up being career-ending, it may not hamstring the franchise as bad financially... Fingers crossed....

    Alex Smith Actual Status

    @theTruthTeller Good insight, thank you for the explanation. This is completely different and more detailed than any other explanation of the insurance that I've heard or read anywhere (and I've scoured quite a few sources looking for info)... Now, I hate to be "that guy", but what are the odds that this franchise did the right thing and reported the compensation to the NFL... let's just say my hopes are not high that this was done the right way, based on, oh I don't know, about a million other examples over the years of bad decisions made by this front office... Hope I'm wrong...

    Official 2018 Flex Scheduling and Playoff Tracker Thread

    Thanks @kleese... I hadn't really thought about da Bears, but if they go 1-2 in their next three, and Minnesota goes 2-1, they would enter the Week 17 game between them with the Bears at 9-6 and Vikes at 8-6-1... winner take all for the division, and the loser MIGHT not get the WildCard if the Skins also end up 9-7... The "QB who won't be named on this thread because I don't want to get banned" may end up sealing the Skins playoff fate this year after all, who woulda thunk?

    Official 2018 Flex Scheduling and Playoff Tracker Thread

    I posted this on the other Schedule thread but it actually probably goes better here: I think it's nearly certain that 9-7 gets the final wildcard. It implies that any team that gets to 8 losses (or even 7 losses and a tie in Green Bay's and Minnesota's case) would be out: That would already eliminate: Arizona, San Fran, Atlanta, New York, Detroit, Green Bay Tampa - could win out and get to 9-7, but we won head to head so we'd get the wildcard over them in the extremely unlikely event that they run the table. So scratch them out. Philly - We obviously have to at least split with Philly, so even if they were to win out otherwise, they'd end up 9-7 and we'd win the division record tiebreaker. (Plus they still have to play @ Dallas and @ Rams, besides the two games against us, so them ending up with 8 losses is nearly certain.) Basically that leaves three teams for the two wild cards: Us, Seattle, and Minnesota Seattle is most definitely getting one of the Wild cards, they still play San Fran, and Arizona. Even losing the other two games, they will get to 9-7. Minnesota is the (for obvious reasons) interesting one: Currently they are 6-5-1, with four games left. They need to lose two of the remaining four, which includes @ Seattle, Miami, @ Detroit, and Chicago. So pretty much, need to have Minny lose two of their next four, we go 3-2, and 9-7 will get us in, regardless of what the rest of the NFC does. Dallas most likely will get to 10-6 and win the division, and we may very well end up the 6-seed playing them in the first round of the playoffs at Jerry World. Need Seattle to win vs. Minnesota this coming week, and we need to take care of business in our next two NFC East games....
  7. Pink, I certainly feel the lack of optimism here, but strongly disagree with you that 9-7 won't get it. I think it's nearly certain that 9-7 gets the final wildcard. It implies that any team that gets to 8 losses (or even 7 losses and a tie in Green Bay's and Minnesota's case) would be out: That would already eliminate: Arizona, San Fran, Atlanta, New York, Detroit, Green Bay Tampa - could win out and get to 9-7, but we won head to head so we'd get the wildcard over them in the very unlikely event that they run the table.

    Redskins vs Eagles Prediction Thread: Kenny Loggins Special

    Just had to single this out, as frustrating as the entire HHCD thing has been, that truly made me laugh out loud, well played Jake!
  9. Low risk, high reward potential.... I also like the fact that Doug came out and directly addressed the allegations instead of "vagina-footing" around them... Could end up being a slam-dunk....I truly hope this guy gets his act together and becomes the player that we nearly traded up to acquire year before last.....
  10. My Lord, that is the written equivalent of a two-decade kick in the nuts.... Thanks (I guess...) for compiling this list of suckitude, and here's to hoping we can reverse the trend tomorrow evening!!

    Is this the best Defensive Front we've had in years?

    Looks like they’ve spent all week reading everyone talking about how awesome they were... and then reality hit them right upside the head... smh
