    Next Day Thread: Redskins vs. Falcons

    The SKINS were NEVER going to the SB...nobody predicted that. The SKINS are making progress towards the playoffs..maybe a one win there. We are NOT in a league of the P's, NO, Rams..but we ARE seeing SOME good games played and like Kdawg said..playing hard! Why you all need to slam Alex is beyond me. I have enjoyed this season more than any of the previous (except for 2012,2015). As AEROSMITH would say..Get a Grip...
  2. Ahhhh..here come all the "I told you so's" again. 5-3 and you all B&M like the Skins had an alternative option than Alex. Alex was the best option available and is still THE BEST OPTION available. We're still in this thing and if you all were honest you'd admit that 5-3 is a pleasant surprise for this club. Ya..another clunker..they got too full of themselves again (the D) and got B-slapped. Atlanta is a GOOD offense.....just sayin

    Safety Clinton Dix to the skins

    40 Yard dashes- Sean was 4.51. Landry was 4.35 vs Dix is 4.58 and DJ is 4.67 Sean/DJ- Free Safety requiring more range but BOTH were slower??? Being Laron was a FAST muther I always thought the FS was the fasted position on D. IS it in fact SS the position that requires more speed for Blitzing and running down RB's at the LOS? (I just read the Dix will play FS and DJ move to SS- Makes sense if that is the case) Paper just gave me the answer https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2018/oct/31/dj-swearinger-ha-ha-clinton-dix-pairing-i-dont-thi/

    Safety Clinton Dix to the skins

    Sean had incredible range and nose for the ball. That wouldn't change in today's game. He DID like to lay the wood though. Players did FEAR his hits. Was awesome to watch. Landry was a heavy hitter too. Sean allowed Landry to head hunt at LOS. Swearinger's 40 @ 4.67 speed as compared to Sean's 40 @ 4.51. Troy Apke 40 @ 4.34 Wow ?

    Safety Clinton Dix to the skins

    So how does this tandem compare to the pinnacle AREA 51 (Taylor and Landry) duo. I know ST had better range/speed/everything...Any expectation to get into the same zip code?
  6. He's not playing loosing football..is he. Until he is RESPONSIBLE for loosing a game that was won or in the final drive have the TO in the 4th Qtr, I will say we got what we wanted in a QB

    In defense of Martyball

    Even Aikman commented on how this D looked like the Manley/Mann D of the 80's. If that D can get there...we can win a bunch of games

    In defense of Martyball

    I predict this D will not allow 30 again. The Saints lit a fire. I could be wrong. This D is still getting better ..FUN TO WATCH. This is how I wanted this team to be built..next year the O. Reminds me of the Allen teams!

THAT was the complaint...*I* was willing to keep and work with him IF he listened to his coach and was a 23-24 Mil (Alex Like) contract...he's NOT and He didn't. So NOW the pressure is REALLY on and I predict he will press and make things worse for himself. The wall will close in

    Evaluating Jay Gruden in 2018

    It may be a "smart" thing to no push Alex into situations he is not comfortable with ..YET. The running game and D is working...why push it against the G-men or Atlanta..give Smith some time and get his starting receivers back in the flow. People complain that Alex isn't burning up the place or playing like he did at KC ...No Preseason Reps..turn over at WR and a new system and a S-load of pressure from our "FANS"....just make me laugh. Give the man some slack..he's not turning the ball over! YOU LIKE THAT???
  12. Funny how the "analysts" were raving about Alex's RO play with Peterson..reading the LB's and working with AD eating the holes like candy. Great camouflaging. The TAPE showed me some great QB work. The game plan didn't stress the WR's. He played within the scheme. It would have been stupid to think he'd work well with the backup WR's playing in that game. Too much risk of TO's. Like Gruden said..he played a field position game and let the D dictate. When they delivered a short field..Alex executed Gruden's plan. What is the PROBLEM?? So we are NOW building a dominating D for the future with Younguns...next draft we'll address the O. WE CAN WIN with a suffocating D..don't get fancy. Just WIN Baby! Just cut em some slack. 2 game win streak working on a 3

    Redskins vs Cowboys Prediction Thread: Who Wants To Be On Top ?

    Looks like we will have to run a heavy package most of the game with no WR's to play. 3 tight ends again, full back? Going to be ground and pound with AD. Can AD match Elliot? Lets hope for rain...I don't know how this game will unfold...
  14. Ya know..Alex has had 5 games of LIVE Action to acclimate to this team. No preseason at all (that's 4 games BTW). Man..I'd HATE to work as an employee of some of you guys... NEWS FLASH..Kurt did not want to play for the Skins. This Cowboys game is a statement game for the team not just Jay and Alex. The NO game may have been a blessing in disguise to embarrass these guys into not letting that happen again. The Boys laid 40 on the Jags and they saw that..they can imagine what will be said about them if ANYTHING like that happens at home

    Next Day Thread: Redskins vs. Panthers

    Will do every chance I get. "Best" is a relative term. Best in what way...stats are NOT THE measure of BEST QB. Best Team Mate, Best Team friendly Option? (Cap space), Best in addressing the Fan Base (flat out lied about intent to work with Skins on FA), Best in showing appreciation to the coach who stuck his neck out for him and gave him his chance. Best at making me CRINGE in the 4th Quarter or Yell at the TV for his slow starts... No sir....he was NOT the BEST Skins QB in 30 Years- not by a long shot. But that is my perception on what "Best" means. Jeff George had the "Best Arm"....

    Next Day Thread: Redskins vs. Panthers

    Like I said..good things are happening this year! Those balls would have been TO's if Kirk was playing ?. It's just his Karma...Kirk is GONE..and I for one was ready for the move. Stats be damned. That whole 2012 draft was cursed and NOW gone! Yea. NOW...Gruden just won a game against a good team..if his team comes out flat against the Boys..he may just push me over the edge of not having ANY hope for him

    Alex didn't FU in the LAST needed drive to make Carolina HAVE to score a TD. THAT is the difference..screw the stats

    Evaluating Jay Gruden in 2018

    I'd offer the HC job..that's what I meant..not DC. I always liked Gregg. He's OK in Clev as DC but I think he'd be "available" for the Skins HC IF Dan and him can put that BS behind them both. I heard Dan didn't like his assessment of the FO...well..was Gregg right or not?

    It may sound crazy and I'm sure *some* will give me s*&T but I'd like to see Greg Williams invited back. At LEAST he has the attitude and with this D talent I think it will be fun to watch. I *HOPE* Danny didn't burn that bridge. We need MEAN and Greg has it in spades

    Evaluating Jay Gruden in 2018

    This was so predictable unfortunately. Win-lose-win-lose 8-8. Jay seems to just rest on victories and lays a huge egg on loses. The "I take the Blame" has gotten old. To quote Homer Simpson "Duh". Just WHY is Washington so hard to coach up?? Blown overages, looking like JV and then you get Allen making light of the embarrassment.. I'm done with Jay. He's doesn't engender respect from the team to step it up above mediocrity. Â Time to move on from him. There is young talent on the team..time to act before all of them are contaminated with being "Blah" Â Honestly..even if he puts some wins together and places in the NFC East...move on. He just does NOT INSPIRE ANY winning attitudes. Â Â

    Evaluating Jay Gruden in 2018

    What gets me is Jay DID Coach exceptionally well through all the injuries last year. He had the team playing hard EVERY WEEK. So I though..ok, here we go!!! !st game YEA!!! Here we go!!! Then I said on here before the Colts game that I wanted to see consecutive effort..then I'd be sold.. So here comes the Colts game and like the player said "it was low energy". I have been reading and I find NOWHERE where the No Energy statement was explained. That whole narrative seems to have died or been killed by the team. Why did the team come out flat? Jay should be asked that and the questioner should not accept "The Colts were more motivated". Well WHY weren't The Skins More Motivated??? I sure hope that was a REAL wakeup call and we'll see a motivated Team Sunday. I don't think we'll win but I hope we play hard for 45 minutes. Losing to a more talented team is no disgrace, laying down or sleep walking is. That is all I'm saying. COACH, PLEASE LIGHT A FIRE in your players!!

    Evaluating Jay Gruden in 2018

    I fully understand that. I was a manager too..eventually I wanted out of managing people because it wore me out being "fair". Who got raises, who got fired. So I realized I couldn't continue to perform in that capacity and enjoy *my* life. That is a valid reason to STOP managing. So if Gruden sees he is not getting the most out of his team with his style and the players are asking for discipline, why not turn the keys over to someone else. His job is not to manage to mediocrity but to excel. So *I* don't understand staying with his status quo when it's hurting the team, sales revenue and his reputation??? The old performance plan critique...time to step your game up or be gone. Everybody has that discussion at some point in their life. The "Peter Principle" appears to have been met here. I supported Jay...more than most. I still think he has skills that are valuable and COULD excel IF he held people responsible. Like was said..play people who work hard..to hell with the score..send a message. He sees it on tape..WR's standing still when it's a running play away from them..not fighting through a block to get open/conceding to early. MISSING ASSIGNMENTS/ROUTES Players who miss assignments repeatedly..need to sit..publicly..let the player explain why. Gotta change this culture somehow..it's cancerous to our younger players
