    Roll Call: Redskins @ Titans..Who’s Going??

    Been a fan of this team for about 8 years now. Why? Still not sure.. Nonetheless, my wife and I are headed for Nashville!! My first ever Skins game! Lets GGGGOOOOOOOO!
  2. They kind of shut down the Kirk talk thanks to that bonehead bobandweave. But you made a really good observation that I missed so I wanted to address it with you. But don't want to get a vacation from here. Hope you don't mind the PM...  So... here it is: 


    That's a good catch. Huge difference in sack yards. Part of that I believe is that Kirk is willing to sit back in the pocket and look for receivers longer. This is why when they get to him, he is deeper. It's also why he loses more fumbles as there are fewer teammates around. It's also what allows him to make plays further down field. Alex gets so nervous so early and starts jumping back to the line of scrimmage almost as soon as he drops back. So when they get to him he is closer to line (less sack yards) and more teammates around (lower lost fumbles). But he has those happy feet so bad he never gets truly set so he can drive the ball, especially on ling passes. He also will not be able to see over the line as well to see guys down field. If the D get their hands up he will not see anything not in a passing lane created by a gap between defenders. 


    Agree with the rest. 


    Guys will miss passes sometimes. Would like for him to have hit it. But not getting hung up on one missed play. My bigger issue with Alex is more consistency and being just a little more aggressive. If he could play more like he did at AZ and in the 2nd half against Tampa, we would seriously be fine.

      I can't say I have ever got a PM..


      Great comments. I see the happy feet too. But Sacks are SUCH killers to the game and the drive.


      I honestly do think our offense will get better with time. As DJ has gotten better with his second year in the system, I believe next year could be the breakout year for our offense.


      However, Alex takes less sacks and I honestly think he is more aware of everything going on. He may not be better at passing the ball, but I think he can bridge us the gap for a few years and teach a new young QB in a year or two how to be a QB in the NFL.

    Pathetic crowds at home opener

    Living in Indiana is tough to go to a Redskins game. One of these days I'm gonna fly out and go.. It's two flights and a hotel. Kind of spendy. I may try to go to the road game on Saturday 12/22 vs the Titans. I can drive there and keep the costs down. Screw the colts. #HTTR

    Redskins to sign Adrian Peterson per

    WHAT?! If Guice doesn't go down, why would they add a power back? It'd be guice, thompson, perine or kelley, bibbs or marshall. No AP.

    Martez didn't affect the signing of AP. Guice affected the signing. Martez was never making this team. Literally a fight between Kelly, Perine, Thompson, Bibbs, Marshall for four roster spots. Now we add AP. That means either Kelly or Perine is gone and I just don't think it's Kelley. Jay has said they will carry a backup for Thompson on the roster.

    2018 Comprehensive NFL Draft Thread

    Per Tom Pelissero We got Adonis Alexander in the sixth round of the supplemental draft! Ha, first breaking news post!
  10. Can't fix the whole roster in one off season. Honestly, I'm glad that they went and tried to fix the defense after last year. If you watch tape as others have, the holes were there, our backs couldn't find them. Now we have Guice. #trusttheprocess
  11. Look at Phil's arms!!! WOW. Dude has put in the work.
  12. Somebody actually gets it. Thank you @oraphus. You gave me hope on this board. I completely agree.
  13. Did you guys see the John Keim tweet about Orlando Scandrick's contract? Only 1 million guaranteed. I now am OK with the signing. All of the money means he has to earn it in playing time and defensive abilities.
  14. I don't think this website is ever happy. We'll sign Hankins and everyone will **** the bed because we spent too much but that's what it took to keep him from going anywhere.
