    Welcome to the NFL Dwayne Haskins QB Ohio State

    Nobody will mistake these guys for top tier talent, that's for sure. But they are hard workers. There is still an outside shot at signing a vet LT going into the season or during TC. However I'm not as worried about teh OL as most. The OL coach Matsko has a history of making chicken salad out of chicken **** in Carolina, I'm sure he can whip these guys into serviceable shape. Plus I think with the rumblings from Turner on the type of offense they want to run, I think the overall goal is to minimize time these guys have to pass block by going with quick small passing sets, and all the misdirection/jet sweep stuff. Remains to be seen if it will work, but I'm cautiously optimistic that things won't be a complete dumpster fire.

    Redskins sign LSU TE Thaddeus Moss as an UDFA

    I think Moss could be another Hentges. Not a super big fast guy, but good enough to get open and catch some passes. Look at the bright side. If we go 2 TE now, at least we'd have 2 decent blockers, as opposed to sprinkle and Davis. Could definitely use an upgrade, but those guys should be serviceable at least.

    Ed Oliver also arrested on DWI and weapons charge in Tx. I know many were high on that guy before the draft a couple years ago.. the dude is just 22 years old.

    This. He could be out partying and getting into all kinds of stuff with tht situation going on nationally, but instead he's working hard to improve himself basically on his own. There's no hanging out at the facility or any of that, so good on him. I hope he's working hard on film and the playbook as well. Although if he's as dedicated to those things as he is to improving himself physically then he's on tht right track for sustained success.

    Ooooweee Dunbar wants to be traded!

    I had thought about putting Trent and Dunbar together in some kind of snarky avatar.

    I always disliked his stupid celebration every time he made a play.

    The Buying Jerseys Thread

    He definitely underperformed vs expectations last year.. but then again the whole defense did. I think Payne is way more talented than Allen, and I love Allen. Payne has the tools to really be a gamewrecker once he grows up a little bit. He's still only 21. Not a knucklehead by any stretch, but I don't think he's matured enough to realize what he could be if he goes 110% all the time. Put Jared Allen's motor in D Payne and you'd have a Warren Sapp on your hands.
  11. money is a huge factor too. You can't risk having your $15 million LT suffer a freak injury and be out for the season.. Or your star RB taking a weird cut and shredding his knee. Hell look at Foster. First non contact practice and he shreds his knee. Players are softer attitude wise, yes. But I can see not wanting to risk highly paid guys as well. It's a double edged sword to be sure.
  12. I came across a chart here on the board somewhere that said the Panthers had somewhere along the lines of 12 all pros during Rivera's tenure. Which sounded promising, and then I read the "What went wrong in Carolina" article on Hogs Haven, and there was a blurb about Matsko and his accomplishments in Carolina working as their OL coach for all of Rivera's tenure: "What is very clear though is that the Panthers (with John Matsko) created a pretty amazing offensive lineman academy in Carolina. Center Ryan Kalil (second rounder) was a multi-year All Pro. Andrew Norwell was taken as an UDFA in 2014 and groomed into an All Pro by 2017. Trai Turner, selected in third round in 2014, is now a 5 time Pro Bowler. And 2015 fourth rounder, Daryl Williams was named second team All Pro in 2017." I have to admit, I was kind of concerned with Callahan and his reputation leaving, but was underwhelmed with the results of the OL while he was here. The snippet above makes me feel a whole lot better about Matsko, it seems the guy is a pretty darn good coach.. and most likely a major upgrade over what we had. The list above omits guys like Jordan Gross, who was also a 1st team all pro and 3x pro bowler (1st round pick) So how do you guys feel about this guy and him working with dudes like Charles, Scherff, Moses, Christian, etc? I was ready to write Christian off, but maybe Matsko can make something out of him.
  13. It sounds like the team is making a concerted effort to do better across the board. Nice to see that they are doing extra things that haven't been done before around here.
