  1. Well Bruce or not, I just think its crappy after the decent draft and future out look the team has mustered up this off season, to have a guy like TW with 2 years left on his contract pull a power play and rock the boat. Maybe he was bored and so used to the typical redskin drama that he figured he'd creat some. I'm a thousandaire and I want more money. He's just on another level.
  2. Agreed. Trents time is passing. Its just how it is.
  3. ALL players come and go eventually. Maybe change is in the air.

    Will the coaching be good enough for the talent?

    completely agree. Is it likely this coaching staff pulls a magic rabbit out of its collective arse this year? Because thats the only thing that saves it. Its OK to believe in your system but you cant keep doing the same thing and expect different results. In all fairness to JG, I saw some late season ( post apocalyptic injury) games where they managed to scratch and claw to a close loss. But thats still the end result. Heres hoping to see magic rabbits!

    Will the coaching be good enough for the talent?

    Scherff and Roullier maybe, but the two T's as well as many others have shown that 16 games is not the norm for them. So expect the same, hope for better. But optimism is what keeps selling tickets & jerseys every year right? And thats what ownership counts on. They just try and improve their business model year after year.

    Colt is getting a bit older and obviously a bit more brittle. Keenum looks to be the day 1 starter at this point. JJ would certainly be the more mobile of the 3, although Colt is fairly mobile too ( but thats what took him out last year ). If Smith plays again, it would simply be the professional sports comeback of the century. ( in my opinion). And even if he does, is he the same QB that we expected him to be? Injuries like that have just as much of a mental effect. I would think they're hoping to have a QB fall in their lap a bit later (2nd, or 3rd rnd) like Finley, Grier, or Thorson maybe. And use the #15 on a G, LB, or beast WR. But there are so many needs, at this point its anyone's guess.
  7. I agree with retaining AP if the price ( and it should be ) is reasonable. Johnson could be a good mobile QB project as a back up. Harris is a mid level WR that will probably lose out to Cam Simms who was turning heads last pre-season. I've seen about the same amount of spark at times from Bibbs and Marshall, but agree with the Marshall injurie problem.

    Superbowl Sunday Thread

    I'm an Ol New Jersey guy that started rooting for the skins years ago. 1983 to be exact. Since Im from NY Giants area, it was fun to pump my chest at all my Giants friends. Us fans have enjoyed several more superbowls since then and I think a lot of us started taking this playoff thing for granted. I know I did. But OH how times have changed. It has become increasingly hard to root for this team. In all fairness, I've seen way too many games decided by horrible officiating as well. And it has caused me to question the integrity of this game. My interest level has nose dived over the past 5-6 years and I stopped routing my weekends around this game & team. The superbowl has become less interesting as well. Not just because we're not in it, but because of the way the other teams GOT in it. Yes they are talented teams, but as I said the officiating steered these teams there. It was blatantly obvious, and is a disgrace. This is the most flawed sport in our nation and probably the world. Everything should be subject to replay. Bad calls , no calls, etc. Shouldn't matter if game takes 5 hrs. Get it right! Oh and, this superbowl will be " the changing of the guard" as the Rams will win. Its good for the league so it will be........

    Take the full cap hit for Smith in 2019

    Yeah, I find myself being much more enthusiastic about what "might" be in a few years , than what Im "sure" will be next year.
  10. I for one enjoy this team. I get my popcorn ready, sit down and have a good laugh as if Im watching any other good comedy. And its a 16 episode series, so the laughs keep coming! Ah the entertainment industry is great!

    Evaluating Jay Gruden in 2018

    Precisely. Jays not throwing the ball. They had Johnson rolling out all day and had PLENTY of time to hit guys on the move that were open. He missed all day. Long , short , easy check downs, etc. This kid was missing even the most basic throws. Sure, Gruden signed him, but he cant play for him.

    Evaluating Jay Gruden in 2018

    Not Jays fault the QB couldnt hit the side of a building with his passes all day. Off the street QB, off the street Oline, 32 yr old RB. Gruden was left with quite the challenge. Last game this team just gave up. So that would be the only knock on Jay, not getting them up for a meaningless game.

    Next Day Thread: Redskins vs. Giants II

    It is quite clear that the team is broken. whether its players, coaches, front office, ownership. Its been the same recorded loop for years. There is NO WAY a professional NFL team should ever lay a stinker like that. No OBJ? either. No one can catch, block, pass rush, pass defend etc. Quickly becoming the worst team we've had in years. I give up.
