  1. 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
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Does he have any say in who is allowed in those press conferences? If anyone else wants to watch it now:
  5. Whoever pulled this off did the team a favor. Great move
  6. Took some time but the results you have to appreciate. If they can do this for a whole season I will say hell yes
  7. This is his shot @FantasyLabsNFL: Maurice Harris will start in place of Josh Doctson (heel, out) Monday night. https://t.co/teA6SBQWuE m.twitter.com/FantasyLabsNFL
  8. I took my wife to see this one this weekend Really enjoyed it, Gaga's performance was incredible. Overall solid chick flick not on the level of The Notebook but close behind. Solid A from me. Bring kleenex if substance abuse has ever hit you closely, you will need them.
  9. Ah we are both far away fans of the Redskins. That's very cool to me. I'm in DFW Texas myself. About the salary well I agree that it was much more expensive to pay for Jackson then Peterson, but the team was slow to even entertain signing Peterson until it was obvious that they had to do something there. They didn't target him in FA, they waited until the last moments to hire him. And yes his money is almost vet minimum but the difference here and signing a 30 yo free agent receiver like Tate (I like Golden btw) is the markets will be in much higher demand for Tate then the market was for AP. I expect Tate to get Garcon money (was more then Deseans) this offseason and the team to be cheap with that route because they are always cheap. If they can sign a vet WR for cheap then they will do it. Hell they just did that twice since the season started. Which is why I think that the team will likely sign Junior Gallette this season, he will come hella cheap now. But to pay up for an older guy this team hasn't done that since when? Not for many years. About Desean isn't it nuts how one QB can use Desean correctly where as another QB can't? Desean with Fitzpatrick was exciting. Desean with Winston is going to be another snoozefest.
  10. I once was a huge fan of the UFC but the last several years haven't excited me much and I haven't watched regularly in a long time. However I am a CM fan so he temporarily brought me back to the UFC this week. I know that the "purist" don't like CM. He is no Royce Gracie. I know morally good people really don't like CM. His actions are at times appalling and his mouth is brutal. There is a lot not to like about the guy. To the casual fan there is a ton to like about him. CM brings excitement and unpredictability where ever he goes. CM is must watch. The UFC desperately needs more charismatic characters like CM if it wants to keep growing. Truth is there will always be an audience for the purist fans of this sport. But your only going to set records when the UFC gets a little more like professional wrestling. I'm sorry but if you don't think them rematching is good for the UFC you don't understand this business. CM is a cash cow, where he goes people follow. Dana knows this so he puts up with nonsense because in the end he is a business man with a goal of making as much money as he can. As for CM he is completely one dimensional, can't wrestle or have any background in that. Take him off his feet and he's easy prey. I bet CM loses the rematch if there is one. You can't teach someone grappling for his entire life and expect a guy who worked on that for a few months to compete with him. You can't teach that overnight and when your fight features this style clash without a lucky punch the shooter is going to win. CM is a good powerful striker but his best asset that no one else brings is himself. And after that fight his opponents best asset is what he did after that fight. People know his name now. Only the die hard purist knew who he was before this fight. Now people want to see him get his ass kicked and the roles to reverse. CM was the arrogant out of control heel before this fight. After this fight he is a babyface and his opponent is the heel. People loved CM as the heel and now will love him as the face. Its a different fight now. CM used to be about his two titles, that was years ago. Now CM is about his whisky and his persona. So he lost. Big deal. Mike Tyson lost 5 times. Everyone loses except Money Mayweather. Even though he lost, even though he isn't going to win the rematch, and even though this fight was boring for the most part I guarantee that in his next fight the match will sell out and do even better ppv business then this one did. It will be exciting. That's what matters. CM puts asses in seats and until he can't do that anymore he will still get booked and people will still follow him. Even in his defeats it is exciting to his fans. That's a value to the sport that seems to be overlooked here imo. CM is good for the UFC Oh and the fighter who said he balls were hot as to why he took off his pants, that was the funniest thing I have seen in a long time
  11. It would go against the way this front office has been doing business signing older players but like you said it could happen. And since the front office is so reactionary and they have found success with the 30+ yo Peterson I would think they could change that next season and sign an older receiver. God that interview should have been enough to fire Bruce Allen. No team wants the guy running the show to be that idiotic do they? Just shows me their is nothing Bruce could do to get fired around here. I am sad now
  12. We can't sign 30 yo receivers, wasn't that the reason they let Desean and Pierre go? They were too old. I was on the side of signing them both back, if you pressed me for just one guy I would have said Garcon. After seeing him get injured again yesterday the logical side of me thinks we did the right thing letting him go as that's happened the past two seasons to him. Still the homer in me says I still miss his swagger and see that as a desperate need for the receivers. I was beating my drum about us targeting him pre-draft. Dude looks like a stud and if he wasn't lining up next to the best receiver in the game today he would have even better stats then he already does. Don't hate or even dislike the actual player we took but at the time I thought we could sign Hankins to shore up the middle of the line and get the drafts best receiver. People disagreed with me about that possibility saying he would cost too much but look he ended up signing a one year 2 million dollar deal. We could have had them both instead of just Payne but shoulda woulda couldas right Do you mean TJ Yeldon as in the Jaguars running back or TY Hilton as in Andrew Lucks #1?
  13. Steelers ploy wouldn't work because we don't have Ben or that offense coming with the pick. Giants have crushed us at drafting receivers and it pains me to say that. None of our draft picks ever made it to a pro bowl or All pro since Snyder took over. Not one. Our best receivers since Snyder took control have all been free agents. To me it's like chasing unicorns finding a receiver in the draft. Problem is I just looked into next years FA's and it's not a pretty sight https://www.spotrac.com/nfl/free-agents/all/wide-receiver/ The best are too old and the younger guys are all wild cards. Its ugly
  14. Can't get on board with drafting a WR no matter how badly we need some. The issue with it is that since Snyder came here they have drafted 19 WR's and none of them were very good. We think that Crowder is good and that Trey Quinn is going to be good but if they weren't on this team would we still think that? Maybe maybe not. We can't spot receiver talent in the draft and it work out for them. Rather pick up receivers in Free Agency and not waste the draft pick personally.
