    Evaluating Jay Gruden in 2018

    and how much is it that Gruden is spending time preparing the starters for the Cardinals and the 4th PG was an afterthought at best (just to see how the "starting" RB's run against scrubs...
  2. YA..subtract the turnover points in the RZ from the total...and again for the other team going the other way. Stats can be used to tell any story. I like Alex because he is HERE with us...I could careless about Cousins and what he does going forward. Water under the bridge ,the deal wasn't made. I know in 2018 I won't be cringing inside the red zone (at least to start the season) If Alex fails..we get good draft position Had the FO listen to me at the 2016 Draft..they would have traded Cousins for a High DP...pretty much had a "slightly worse" season and had better PICKS in the last draft and would have gotten one of the rookie studs we are seeing this preseason. BUT Nooooo, we franchised KC again... So you see..either way..we WIN with Alex. Glass half full

    Evaluating Jay Gruden in 2018

    Where is London Fletcher when you need em...I can't name a player that has taken up that mantle. Trent comes to mind but he doesn't take the role on O. Nobody on D comes to mind..Kerrigan is Trent on the other side. A player but not a general... We need a London as much as Riggo 2.0

    Evaluating Jay Gruden in 2018

    Gruden and Kirk were equally responsible. Kirk should have been layin into guys who messed up on O if he's the leader. I expect Alex to do that even if Jay is not. Jay needed some "chucky"..I always have said that. You watch Brady, Rogers get in people's faces all the time

    Evaluating Jay Gruden in 2018

    I don't know how you can't be ready to play. Saw guys trying to make open field tackles by chipping at the legs or throwing a shoulder at the runner's hips instead of squaring up in front and at least slow the runner (yes..they were in front of the runner and chipped as they ran by??). Saw HUGE holes in the Zone coverage (especially the 3rd and 14 completion) where no skin was withing 5 yards at the 1st down marker. The front 7 push died with many of them being stood-up and bending backwards I could care less about the score or preseason and vanilla game plan..but *I* didn't see allot of intensity and effort (as compared to Denver). Looked like night and day between the two clubs (except for AP). Alex was OK for 8 attempts...JUST missed VD on the 3rd down...perfect ball placement..had beat the D and just shy a step- If that was Reed he'd still be running. Maybe Alex is working with allot in practice Reed/Crowder and his timing is off with a slower VD?? Maybe I'm blind and the effort was there..I just didn't see it that way.
  6. Somebody needs to check the water..I swear John Kent Cooke, Jr is spiking the water out of spite. No excuses for THAT lack of effort IMHO. The secondary couldn't do squat..I'm embarrassed for them watching the receiver separation. Why do the Redskin's (going back many years now) intensity come in half measures??? Look at AP and the effort that man gave..He is professional ..the rest of those guys should apologize to him. These teams make me want to forget the 80's and 90's teams and move on..get over it..

    Redskins to sign Adrian Peterson per NFL.com

    in 1983 at age 34, he rushed for an NFL single-season record 24 touchdowns, and again led the league in rushing touchdowns the following season at age 35. THIS is where I'm at too. Riggo Drill 2.0

    Redskins to sign Adrian Peterson per NFL.com

    He took the PIC! That's why KC is out of focus
  9. Geeez..a player who follows the coaches game plan!!??? Say it ain't so Joe!!!!
  10. Now THAT is funny. Try the multi post that I refereed to. BUT you are right...no need to look ANY further for an agenda guy. Two peas in a pod you two are.
  11. as compared to 30yo who hasn't won a single playoff game, is bipolar in game situations that count, 80 mil 3 year guaranteed who didn't want to be here from the get go. No Brainer
  12. YA...like WHO wanted to be a Redskin!

    Redskins to sign Adrian Peterson per NFL.com

    Anybody heard the workout #'s???? Does he have the ability to make the corner??
  14. What I find "funny" is how Kirk's 1st 2 preseason games are a microcosm of " Kirk the Redskin". One game he's HOF..then lays an egg the next. It was a recurring question for the last two seasons "Which Kirk will show up??!!" There seemed to be no in between or consistency ( and don't quote stats made up from garbage yardage when the game was lost. Kirk was a Good QB with consistency/trust/choke issues that *could* have been coached to be GREAT'R (I'll give the eR for the games where he pulled the string and played aggressively) Just like RG3, Kirk seemed to think he knew how to play QB better than the coaches. aka Gruden's frustration on the tentativeness on some throws/patterns. So this is my opinion based on my observations..he was not worth the Cap hit it would have cost to keep him. Had the price been right/better, I would have loved to have him back with the caveat that he play the game the way coach wanted it played. Gruden would have been the 1st to say "I told him to take that risk/make that read" I swear..we just drafted a bunch of "Diss ready" players in 2012 with too big of ego's. I am glad that it has ended. I just posted the 3/8 for 12 to make the point..same old..same old.
  15. Imagine if that was Alex.....there would be a lynching for both Bruce and Jay..
  16. Alex's biggest intangible is he wants to be here (happy with his pay) AND he doesn't have a big F CHIP on his shoulder for some perceived diss...He looked "good" in the 2nd preseason game as compared to.... Now..as to HOW GOOD he will be, I am at least rooting for him to succeed and I'm having fun doing it. Those 1 year deals sucked the fun outa watching the skins (Blame who you want).

    Annual "Where Do I Watch Games Thread"

    I tried this past May....Maybe my negotiation skills need work... "Oh YEA!!! #%^&*^ U I'm getting Dish" didn't close the deal???

    Annual "Where Do I Watch Games Thread"

    I tried that...since AT&T took over they didn't budge..even when I said I'd switch to Dish...no go...So I said OK..cancel..I got dish.

    Ravens Sign Robert Griffin III

    I just looked at the #'s 7/11 w/2 drops 1TD. When you put it they way you said.......ya..those are some negatives

    Ravens Sign Robert Griffin III

    He played pretty good in the HOF game...don't know
  21. I responded on this thread to join an evaluation of Alex Smith. There is an active Cousins thread in Around the NFL - so what. Please communicate to a moderator if you think my response is out of scope otherwise put me on ignore.
  22. But it is SUPERBOWL or Bust...pretty high expectation even with the talent they have. That is all on Kirk in that they made it to within 1 game last year. The Vikes schedule should be harder too given their 2017 record. Alex has no where near the expectations which will let him play looser. The Vikes are a better team than the skins...but a Good season is relative to both
  23. The Vikes's 1st two games will tell you. a 49'rs loss and a GB Loss will put pressure on KC like he's never felt before. You KNOW these teams are replaying the Eagles and Cowboys sweeps last year for D tips...
  24. I agree with you...Those 2 eagles games EARLY in the season were proof to me. Some can blame game plan but that goes to your argument that The former Redskins QB only ran plays he was comfortable with so a GOOD DC ( Our Division Opponents) would capitalize on that. The Eagles did just that. Those games were fubared
