    The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    I started putting my fandom on hold after week 5. It was pretty clear the direction the team was going in. Put on my skins duds in week 1. Embarassing loss, but they were ahead of the Eagles for a while and looked promising. Swore I would not wear any garb until they won again. Well the Miami game was not convincing enough so I waited until the Jet game to wear stuff, ( girlfriend is a Jet fan so this was our superbowl), well needless to say everything is packed up until further notice.

    Thoughts on next draft?

    Did not see an existing thread on next years draft, excuse me if there is. The question is , now that we can assume a high draft pick, what stands out as the critical needs ( other than everything ) that you would upgrade with the draft? LT is certainly the obvious one but its so very clear that much more is needed. Or is proper coaching going to fix most of this teams issues? A lot will say ownership and management, but we know that will likely not change. I'm just hoping they haven't created such a bad culture that this ends up being the LAST team any player wants to play for. So what position would YOU pick?

    What the hell is Wrong with Scherff?

    Its not unpredictable that much of this teams mindset is to get the season over. You may assume they are all " Professionals " and will put their best efforts in game after game. But lets face it, most of them stopped caring 4-5 games ago. Between the TW saga, other ex players coming out of the woodwork to trash ownership/management, the weakest QB line up in the league, the rookie WR being by FAR the best wr on the team, a defensive coaching staff that is clueless, etc. The human element was bound to take over.
  4. Well I'm not plunking down the rest of my bank account on him, but after watching the Jet game he seems to have some juice. Just hope he gets to show enough for the balance of this year to get us worked up for next year. The rest of this team is another story.
  5. Just read an article saying redskins are getting one of their best players back in week 11. Guice. What makes them think he is one of the best players? He has shown NOTHING yet. Play this kid the rest of the year to see if he's worth anything.
  6. the only thing i own that id wear is my 44 jersey. but i wont even wear that. Not for fear of ridicule, ( im a sizable dude), they simply dont deserve it.

    Is this the worst Redskins team in the last 20 years?

    yup, i said it earlier. snyder/allen has managed to make it completely uncool to be a skins fan.
  8. Hoping Haskins gets all the reps until the next game so the team can get a much better evaluation on him. Against the Bills I saw a QB that was sticking to a safe script. Deep throws seemed off limits. Thats OK for now I suppose. That being said, he did not wow anyone, did'nt stink it up either. It was just boring as hell. One thing that stood out was his size and strength. He looked hard to tackle and thats good, ( kind of reminded me of a young Culpepper ). But this could lead to a false sense of security as he holds the ball way too long instead of throwing it away. Too many gang tackles and he'll just be another injured player on a consistently beat up team. Hopefully he finds the right balance of ball security and risk taking. I really think he should start for the rest of the season and see as much as possible, that way they'll see if he is the "one" or if another QB might be on the menu with our undoubtedly high draft pick coming up.

    what team are they capable of beating on the remaining schedule? Jets ? I doubt it. I honestly do not see another win here.

    Is this the worst Redskins team in the last 20 years?

    I don't remember laughing at my team like I have this year. So I would say yes. I think most fans that watch these games now only watch to see what type of inept play will happen to add another loss at this point. OR, if some magical winning fairy dust has been sprinkled upon the field to help us. Either way its pathetic, sad, laughable, and boring. We now have joined the ranks of the Browns, Bucs, Lions, etc. as one of the worst teams not only in DC , but in history. Thank you Snyder, you've managed to do something worse than just lose games. You've actually made it " uncool " to be a Redskin fan.
  11. Well its obvious AP wants something out of this season albeit personal accomplishments. And that should be enough for the Oline to play hard. For him. But, uh, thats about it. Under Man-yuck-sky, this defense will always suck with an occaisional flash ( then we all get excited about the potential !) then quickly back to reality. I hope AP breaks some records. Thats the ONLY reason I watch, sort of. Rest of the team is waiting for vacation. Including Allen.

    34-13 pats. Colt starts, Dwayne finishes. No firings ( loss is expected ). Carve it in stone.

    Well even tho the cancer is here already, I guess there's no reason to double up. Yes it seems times are changing. It used to be most X- Redskins went on to hall of fame careers with different clubs.
