    Hate to say it but Tampa -3.5 seems like easy money today @adamlevitan: Redskins without their starting LT, LG, RG, outside WR, slot WR and pass-catching RB today. m.twitter.com/adamlevitan

    Does Doctson even care?

    Idk about you but I think Hopkins and Julio have something to do with that. We don't have talent like that to open up Josh like those guys have. IMO the team wrongly decided to go out and invest in an injury prone Paul Richardson instead of going with other options out there at the time. I wasn't a fan of Richardson and they still owe him a minimum of 26 million according to this https://overthecap.com/player/paul-richardson/2984 And Richardson had a long history of injuries they should have paid attention to. I was wanting the team pre-draft to go draft Calvin Ridley because the receiver situation bothered me. It still bothers me. Now we are stuck with Richardson out for the year, and Crowder injured so the only receivers this week are going to be (not looking quite like himself) Jordan Reed and Josh Doctson. Not pretty. Now I do think that Payne is turning out to be a hell of a pick but had they went receiver in the draft instead I still think it would have opened up the receivers more which would have helped Josh Doctson.

    Does Doctson even care?

    Drafting WR in the first round historically has been a very risky thing to do: https://bleacherreport.com/articles/2441018-which-positions-are-the-safest-riskiest-at-the-top-of-the-nfl-draft Here's the thing about Josh Doctson to remember. He was drafted in 2016. He has only played in 25 out of a possible 48 games. That's almost 50% of the games he could have played in missed. So looking at his "stats" his targets to receptions rate is improving the more he is playing: 2018 - He is catching the ball at a 54% 2017 - He is catching the ball at a 44% 2016 - He is catching the ball at a 28% So he is making more catches with the targets he is getting the older and more experience he gets. When I compare that to Crowders first three years its different: 2017 - He is catching the ball at a 63% 2016 - He is catching the ball at a 69% 2015 - He is catching the ball at a 74% One guys going up, one guys going down. The NFL average for receivers catching the ball when it's thrown to them is 0.68% I've not completely given up on either guy at this point. I heard some people suggesting that the team cut Doctson but that would be a mistake imo. If he continues to improve his catch rate per target then he will shed his 50/50 reputation. I never liked his speed but his catch radius I did so if he can catch the ball more with that radius he could still become a decent NFL receiver. More likely then not Doctson and Treadwell will both be first round busts at this point but I don't think it's time to give up on Josh. He has one more season on his rookie deal to show us something and that's a cheap cost. And it's not like this team is stacked with other options.

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

    Does he have any say in who is allowed in those press conferences? If anyone else wants to watch it now:
  6. He is playing 80% of the snaps on Defense and mostly in on passing downs. Currently ranking as the 47th best rolb in the league out of qualifying 107 ranked players on pff. Sacks are lacking. Depends how he ends the season.
  7. Deseans age and contract Golden Tate age and contract Demaryius Thomas age and contract Amari Cooper inconsistency’s and cost all negatives to me. Must think team thought the same. Should have given a 5th for Gordon but otherwise glad those players aren’t on the team. The problem with the passing game is Alex Smith but he’s not turning it over and they are winning so have to ride it through. Haha is 25 years old and elite at his position. Fourth round pick when they know they have two going into the draft is all Haha cost. Montae is young, if Haha leaves Montae gets to take over next year. Learning from two top five players in the league can’t hurt Core of the Defense is young including Dix. If up to me next offseason pay Preston, cut Norman and give Norman’s money to HaHa. Outlook really bright on this side of the ball. If all he’s asking for is 8mil a year I would pay him that. Cutting Norman next offseason saves 21 million on the cap next two years. Money from that move could be used to retain Preston and Haha. Dont dislike Norman but he’s near 10% of the cap and unless he takes a cut don’t think it’s worth that much. What am I missing that’s not to like from these decisions?

    Whoever pulled this off did the team a favor. Great move
  9. Imo yes they did. The opponents on the schedule remaining Falcons - funnel passing offense Eagles x2 - funnel passing offense Bucs - funnel passing offense Texans - funnel passing offense Adding a top safety with this schedule just makes too much sense
  10. I agree to a point but look at the Eagles. They are a funnel passing offense. So it was needed as they still have to play them two times. The Cowboys imo were morons to give a first round pick for Cooper and don’t think that plays a part in this plus they already beat them
  11. Couple of things 1. If they don’t resign Haha they will more likely then not get that pick back in comp pick the following year. 30+ year old receivers wouldn’t give them that 2. Outside of the Pats trade for Josh Gordon imo those teams overpaid. I do wish that they had flipped a 5th for Josh 3. They didn’t have the cap room to assume the contracts of Tate or Thomas without cutting or restructuring. Haha is on his rookie deal so not an issue
