  1. This is definitely the time to switch back to a 4-3 when the new staff comes in. P Smith is likely gone, Foster and maybe Z Brown should be gone as well. switching to a 4-3 wouldn't be a bad deal IMO. It would put Payne and Allen at the 3 where they belong, Settle would be the rotational 3 guy. Kerrigan could play end, and they'd have to find a FA or draft another one. R Anderson is miscast as a 3-4 OLB, he needs to be a 4-3 OLB/situational pass rusher, where I think he would shine. (even though he had success at bama in their 3-4 look, it's not so good here) Jettison Foster and maybe Brown, and draft a MLB in the 2nd, maybe even the 1st if the right guy is there.

    Evaluating Jay Gruden in 2018

    2 things about the injuries: 1. it's been the team's strategy to draft guys with injury history trying to get "value" for their picks 2. I've been saying it for awhile, but I attribute the sky high injury rate (to the OL specifically) as a direct result of Jay's "power" running scheme. The formations are pretty obvious, and that leads to stacked boxes that routinely have upwards of 15-18 people between the hashes as it were. (obviously not every play is run inside the hash area, but a little hash sized area is where he prefers to stack everyone up. So you've got everyone bunched up in a 15-20 yard area every running play, on a 50 yard wide field with much of that space being unused.. injuries are bound to happen. We always have a ton of lower body injuries to the OL as a direct result of everyone being jumbled up in the middle of the field and bodies falling everywhere. We didn't have nearly the amount of lower body injuries to the OL back in the zbs shanny days... at least not that I can recall. Guys were moving in space and the use of angle blocks, traps, pulls and everything else kept guys in space and on the move, rather than being stood up in the middle of the field having bodies falling all over the place. I think it's pretty obvious that McVay covered for much of Jay's ineptitude when he was the OC. Since Jay took over playcalling duties the offense has ground to a halt.. meanwhile in LA McVay has taken a stiff like Goff and turned him into a pro-bowl qb.

    The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    You guys want to hear a funny joke? They left Colt off ir because they "wanted him available if they make the playoffs" And THIS was the kind of effort that they brought. Clown show. From top to bottom, that's what this organization is.

    It's after 9. I'm surprised he hasn't been fired yet. Hopefully they don't wait until tomorrow. The guy quit, and the players quit as well. Even the most outspoken like swearinger and Norman, it was obvious they didn't give a ****.

    Who On The Redskins Team/Organization Worth Keeping? {Multi-Level Thread }

    This team has been sucking for the better part of the last 25 years. MAYBE a season or three of mediocre mixed in there. Calling this team mediocre over the last two decades is a disservice to the word.

    Evaluating Jay Gruden in 2018

    Well the post game show should be entertaining after this debacle is over. I can't wait to see bmitch go off on these Jokers. It's amazing how quickly things can turn South for this team in a mere 3.5 weeks.
  7. I wonder if this is a player mutiny against the coaching staff. They have not played this bad in years with much worse defenses. Dan has to bust out the broom and fire Jay and Bruce after this game. Then finish up the rest of the coaching staff after the season. This is ridiculous.
  8. Hopefully this embarrassment means heads will roll first thing tomorrow morning. It's what needed to happen. I just hope the stain of gruden hasn't tainted our young players into not giving a **** and performing like this for the rest of their time here.
  9. Does anyone really care if they win or lose? I don't. Seems like both teams don't really care, they've just mailed it in and are waiting for their off-season vacation. The official rally cry of ES in November: Bring on the draft!!!

    2019 Comprehensive Draft Thread

    He's got an amazing level of arm strength when he can get his feet set though. Abbreviated throwing motion like Uncle Rico but man does that ball fly. Mocks that I've been reading lately have him moving up to the #1 qb this year.. hard to predict this far out but teams are gonna fall in love with his arm strength.
  11. Well folks, here we are once again with the wheels having fallen off yet another season. The 4-2 euphoria of early October is long gone. It's the same 'ol story. Poor playcalling, poor execution, poor preparation, gobs of injuries.. stop me if you've heard this one before. I among many are ready to see old Danny boy bust out the broom and do a complete clean sweep. Not this half assed fire this or that coordinator.. It's time to clean house.. the ENTIRE house from top to bottom. Does he have the balls to do it? Time will tell. But for the meantime, I thought it would be a fun exercise to see what we could come up with collectively as a future roadmap for this franchise. So with that being said, here's my half baked plan: *Fire Bruce (duh) Completely gut the FO. Maybe keep the cap guy and the scouting dept, but time to hire a GM with a plan and map out the future of the franchise. *Can the coaching staff. And I mean the entire staff, from the HC to the strength guy to the nutritionist. Let the incoming regime decide who they want where. *Return to the ZBS scheme. (This is just a personal wish of mine for the incoming staff) Obviously this is dependent on the coach that gets hired, but I'm convinced all the OL injuries year after year are a disastrous result of Gruden's "power running" scheme, where you've got upwards of 15-20 bodies around the LOS all bunched up between the hashes. Bodies fall everywhere and I think it's directly responsible for all the lower body injuries the OL sustains year after year. I don't recall too many lower injuries when we ran the ball with shanny's ZBS, and the running game was MUCH better back in those days, despite being manned by guys like Lictensteiger and Tyler Polumbus and Will Montgomery. *Draft a QB. With the albatross of Smith's contract hanging around for the next 2 years, a QB on a rookie deal is important. Not saying they have to trade up to the top 5, but it's important they draft a qb this year. *Jettison some large contracts. Norman, Reed, love you guys but cya. McGee, Davis and Foster, it's been swell, but bye. Allow P Smith and Crowder to leave via FA. *continue to build through the draft. We've got lots of good young pieces along the OL and DL, even some youngsters in the secondary I think can do better than the position they're being put in now. Where we're really lacking is the skill position guys. QB and WR most notably. All we can do on that front is hope we can draft those positions better than the last 25 years. No more Heath Shulers or Rod Gardners please. That's all I got for now.

    How do you figure he can spot a QB? Every one that he's worked with has flamed out or completely sucked ass running his system. Rg3, awful. Kirk was ok but only won more than 8 once. Smith looked awful. Colt too. Sudfeld was terrible as well.

    The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    Ok so here we are, year 5 and going backwards once again. If there was ever a prime opportunity to blow everything up and clean house, it's now. Question is, does Danny boy have the balls to gut everyone? If I were owner, I'd can Bruce, promote Schaefer. Gruden and the whole coaching staff, gone. Norman and his contact, gone. Same with Reed. Also gone are Crowder, P Smith (FA contacts) They've got a good young base of talent at some positions, and a bunch of draft picks. A new gm and coaching staff can work with that. Even with the albatross of Smith's contract, cutting Reed and Norman should help absorb the cost of that, plus the cap increase. Obviously we need to draft a rookie QB, who will help alleviate the Smith cost. I'd look at FA for a TE, OL and CB. Draft a QB, MLB, and hopefully a WR or two. Speed rusher would be nice but that's a tall order in one draft.

    So who's interested in waiting until 2020 for a QB now? 2 broken fibulas in 3 weeks. What are the odds? They have to draft one now. Hopefully they don't overpay. And on that note, hopefully they lose out and get a better draft pick. No way we're going to the playoffs with Sanchez starting.

    Lock and Haskins have some legit arm strength. Those boys can definitely zip it. I wouldn't mind taking a swing on one or the other if they somehow were available when the skins pick, or even if they had to trade up a bit to get one or the other.. You miss 100% of the shots you don't take right? Time to channel some Rex Grossman, **** it, I'm going deep. Take a chance on a guy and if he doesn't pan out, try again. Not like anything else they've tried around here the last 25 years has worked out either. Maybe the team can catch lightning in a bottle.. but knowing this place they're more apt to get struck by it (RG3, Shuler, etc)
