  1. Gotta be honest, when I heard he got in a verbal confrontation with Eagles in a predraft interview I thought mentally he just couldn't cut it. Uber talented, but more talented players have failed because they can't control themselves off the field.
  2. No owner wants the season cancelled. They would have to give back some of the TV contract money because they are not fulfilling their end of the bargain.
  3. I envy you. I wish I could leave. At this point I'm probably operating 3% on old memories and 97% on Stockholm syndrome.
  4. With him not directly being implicated he's probably safe. What's worse than these accusations is that he's only 55 years old. We probably have another ~20 years of him, so buckle in.
  5. Complete rollercoaster of a day. I went from horrified about the WP article to hopeful that Snyder might get forced out to completely deflated because with Snyder not being specifically named and liked among the other owners he's probably safe. So, as a fan base we are more embarrassed than usual at the beginning of rebuild while still stuck with the person who's ruined this once proud franchise. Just change the name to the Washinton Snyders already and be done with it.
  6. Wow. Would be crazy if 1/5 of that is true. Mind as well throw in devil worship and hunting humans.
  7. What has anyone heard about this Washington Post 'Bombshell' article? I've been waiting for something to drop since Tuesday, so I'm just looking for speculation at this point. We've had 3 pretty much unknown executives leave this week (Michael retired, Santos and Mann II fired). That makes me think there's something to this report. Anyway, what has anyone heard?
  8. I'll continue to wear my gear, but like all the current stuff it will be eventually replaced with new branded merchandise in time. Eventually I'll have all new stuff that is a bit more trendy. Part of me is happy to see the Redskin chapter close. I was getting sick of having the same damn conversation over and over again especially while the team has been struggling. I'm excited for the new name/logo. I hope the marketing team goes full rebuild and get some creative designs.
  9. Emotionally this will take time, but from a business side the ne change will just be a formality. The NFL is a business first and foremost. This has now started to mess with their money.
  10. I think he can come back, but I don't think he can stay healthy...
  11. Man, this team has horrible luck with injuries!
  12. He didn't get extended, so if he leaves for a decent deal Seattle will get a comp pick. Chances are it will be higher than a 5th. Looking at next year's free agency period.
  13. This doesn't bode well for the Trent Williams impasse. It seems when a player doesn't want to be here coach is willing to ship them out for peanuts. Just as an FYI, Dunbar will net more than a 5th in a comp pick this following season. This effectively will cost Seattle nothing for a young, good corner on a cheap one year deal.
  14. I look at it a bit differently. This is a massive FU to the Cowboys. He is their all time receptions leader and was brought back largely because of his leadership. By all accounts he had a very frustrating season and for him to choose another team over the booth means something.
  15. Here's where I'm setting my expectations - We won't get too much back in return. I'm setting these expectations for the following reasons: 1 - Trent's been pretty dug in and it appears he's not giving the new regime much of a chance to change his mind. This just lowers the leverage the Redskins have in those negotiations. 2 - Injury history. 3 - Ron Rivera's history - When a player is not a part of his team's future he seems willing to move on for little compensation. I'm thinking of the Josh Norman situation where he was under contract and when they realized Josh didn'
  16. I'm not disagreeing with you, but for Trent, not including last season he's missed time in each of the last 5 seasons. Peters was similar around that age, but Whitworth really hasn't missed much time. Anyway, what I'm getting at is Trent's 31, when you factor in his injuries which has happened from age 26, could be worse than Peters or Whitworth at that respective point in their career. I'd add, being off a year doesn't mean he's 100% healthy. Sometimes when players take a year off their bodies have difficult time getting in 'football shape', meaning they can't take t
  17. I'm on the fence on how we should grow going forward. We have been freeing up a lot of cap space. We currently sit just over $60M, but there are other moves that can be made, specifically trading Trent, Kerrigan or maybe Dunbar. I'm not wanting to discuss each player, but more the overall strategy. Should we go into a mode where the sole focus is getting future assets (draft picks) and signing younger players? Would it better if Rivera completely cleans house and start new with a combination of picks and cap space OR should he go into free agency, grab some vets that can help imme
  18. He was a first rounder (29th overall) and is still young and talented. You think a 5th is going to be good enough to get it done? I'm ready for a boring, cheap TE. Give me a blocker who can run some routes, but their job is fairly defined.
  19. I think a couple years ago I wanted him to just retire. I'd find myself rooting for him in the jersey hoping he doesn't get hurt, knowing that he'll probably get hurt. Watching him come back was a great story, but after a while I knew the story always had a bad ending. Sadly, I'm worried how things will look in 10-15 years. The damage he's sustained could put him at risk of being the next Junior Seau. It's just sad. Anyway, thanking Jordan for his effort and performances. That 2015 season was awesome. He was uncoverable and I think really helped Kirk develop. He'll b
  20. Without Allen at the table what's the hold up? I mean Dunbar is a young, good player. Why not negotiate now where he's not a FA, so there's some leverage in extending him? Anyway, it will be interesting how Rivera handles this. We all assume it would be better because Allen is gone, but we can't forget how things broke down between Rivera and Norman in Carolina. They pulled the franchise tag after free agency starts, which is typically a dirty move. Most teams spent their cash, so Norman had less suitors. Granted, in that situation there was one team left that was wil
  21. I'm happy he's gone, but I also remember how excited we all were when we signed him. He's regressed every year. Hopefully we learn older corners typically don't do well. If we follow this up with sighing a 30 year old to a 4 year deal we'll be in facepalm town.
  22. So he'll be 36, probably need more than $5M/season to play and he's been injured both of the last two seasons. For TE there are a lot of better options out there. Personally I like the idea of drafting someone in the 4th round or later and maybe picking up someone that can give you a few quality starts.
  23. The underlying problem with the premise is that we the fans think the product is failing us while the owner has been getting very wealthy off the same product. All your suggestions involve Dan making less money. I'd ask, if he hasn't made any sacrafices and been rewarded why would be do so now? Is there a business case for him to forgo profits today for more in the future?
  24. Okay. That's good to know. I'm not too excited about the 2018 draft. Like the talent, but still waiting to see if it will translate to on field production. Guys like Guice have always bugged me because I'm so excited to see them on the field and with every injury I wonder what kind of player is left. I think Payne is a complete hit, but just for reference here's how the rest of the first round went: 1 14 NOR Marcus Davenport DE 22 2019 0 0 1 7
