    Welcome to the NFL Dwayne Haskins QB Ohio State

    We are taking his replacement with our first pick next year whether Haskins has had a fair shake or not. We don't get to play Miami again so we will be 1-15 and with Cincy and Miami playing each other one of them is going to get a win too so we will almost certainly be in Tua/Herbert territory. We are going to be hiring a new Head Coach and anybody worth hiring is going to want their own hand picked QB just like Kingsbury in Arizona and so Haskins will be this years Josh Rosen. The stupid part in all of this is that the above was easy to predict months ago. We had way too many issues and Gruden was out of excuses and bound to be fired. Taking a QB this year was malpractice by the front office, especially one with clear issues and that the coaching staff had told them was not good enough. With the Trent and Sherff situations we should have been looking OL all the way for our first pick and don't even get me started on the moronic, win now mentality of giving up future picks to get back into the first round for an edge rusher with red flags. If I am whichever poor sap who gets his named called first by Washington in the next draft I would take a year out and re-enter in 2021.

    !!!!0mgz!!!! Trent Williams finally showed up

    The only issue here being that Jon Gruden had the power to force Bruce's hand, nobody in Washington has that kind of juice.
  4. No it can't 1. We have no Quarterback 2. Our OLine has devolved into trash 3. Manusky is still our DC 4. Callahan hasn't been a HC in this league for a long time for a reason

    What does Doug Williams do exactly?

    Until this week Bruce had not spoken to the press in over 4 years and Dan does not speak to the press period. Doug is there to try and justify all the stupid **** the team does and provide cover to the ****weasels running the show because we all love him too much to be mean to him when he is explaining away why we are 1. Pimping out cheerleaders to Dan's buddies 2. Trading picks and assets for over the hill veterans 3. Cutting guys with trade value 4. Paying Greg Manusky to coach in the NFL 5. Doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results 6. Leaking trashy TMZ **** about employees we want to fire And the list goes on (and on)

    Redskins vs Dolphins Prediction Thread: Toilet Bowl vol. I

    We need to lose for that number 1 pick and while we are it we should see if we can trade Haskins before the deadline so we can get an actual franchise QB next season for Bruce and our new HC to ruin.
  7. Yes but Bruce Allen will be the man making that pick
  8. Rooney rule. No way they can fire Jay and appoint a permanent replacement within hours and legitimately claim they interviewed minority candidates. This is just a yes man steering the wreckage for 11 more games until the end of the season when Dan gets to fire up the jet and try and persuade A list candidates to take his filthy money. I just think that this time he is going to find that regardless of there only being 32 HC jobs he is not going to get his desired targets and will either wind up with a re-tread like Marvin Lewis or somebody who has never gotten their shot and is desperate like Dave Toub.

    Next Coach?

    I honestly just don't care anymore. I switched off from football after the draft feeling like nothing good would happen this season and once training camp started I realized for the first time in my 50 years, 40 of which have been spent as a Skins fan, that I had no enthusiasm for the upcoming season. I figured once the real games started my interest would pick up again but we are now heading into week 4 and I haven't watched a second of football this season. The Dan and Bruce axis has finally destroyed my love for the game, I could never support anyone else but I cannot follow Washington with these idiots in charge and so I have to accept I am an ex football fan. Snyder will never sell the team and we will always be a dumpster fire with him as an owner. If they somehow hired Belichick they would find some way to undermine him and he would leave with a losing record.

  11. After everything else I think that would be the final straw and I would have to say I was done with this team and done with this league. Constantly fielding a ****ty team is one thing, lots of fans suffer that fate after all but signing an egotistical abuser like AB, that is choosing to be beneath contempt.

    Right now it is a full on teardown and it was probably much needed. The scary part as a fan is that you really don't trust the Glazers and Woodward to actually rebuild the house once it has been torn down to the studs. One tiny example, we knew Lukaku was going to go for around what we paid this summer and had scouted Haller as a replacement, a CF who could score the scruffy close range goals that Martial and Rashford are never in position for. Haller ended up at West Ham for a lot less than we sold Lukaku for and as the second half unfolded on Saturday all I could think was how if we had a decent CF on the end of any one of those crosses James was putting in we would have won at a canter. That penny pinching could cost us upwards of 10 points this season and with the chasing group tightening the gap a 10 point swing could be the difference between 4th and 10th this year. They will keep Ole because he is beloved at the club and shields the culprits from the fans whilst also being so happy to have the job that he will never call Ed out for leaving him with a squad that is not fit for purpose. He is a little naïve tactically but when you look at how threadbare this group is even changing formations and tactics is tantamount to rearranging the deckchairs on the titanic. For all his flaws Pogba is our best player but with no other world class Midfielders at the club we need to play him in about 4 different positions, if he is played deep he can't influence our attacking play as much as we need him to but if you play him as a number 10 he inevitably will end up dropping deeper to get the ball because there is nobody on the roster capable of playing the playmaker role from deep and he will be starved for service. My expectation is that Ole will stick around for this season and possibly the next before the club and more pertinently the clubs sponsors decide something has to change at which point big money will be thrown at a trendy candidate. The current parsimony suggests Ed is already planning to build up a war chest for the man after Ole and is happy to focus on cutting the wage bill and clearing the deadwood until that time.

    The Forthcoming Recession

    401k savings are fine provided you are not close to retirement age and can afford to ride out any turbulence. If you are within 5 years of retiring you should be moving to more conservative investments if you are self directing. If you let your company invest for you then they typically will have funds for each year stretching out 30 to 40 years into the future so if you are retiring in 2022 then you will be in your companys 2022 fund and that will target increasingly conservative investments the close it gets to maturity. If you are really concerned most plans offer a Stable fund which is what people generally do with their funds after retirement age. A stable fund is mostly bonds and ultra safe investments and whilst it won't lose you money it won't make you money either. If you are 5 or more years away from retiring you can genuinely expect to recover any losses and actually grow your funds as the markets recover, you just need patience. I have a customer who lost a ton of money in 2008 on his investments and pulled everything out and put it in a savings account. His $100,000 has earned him around $1,000 in interest in 10 years at the crappy interest rates savings account pay. If he had left his money in the Nasdaq and Small Cap markets where it was in 2008 that $100,000 would have another 0 on the end of it by now.

    Maybe they were up for it and certainly the celebrations showed how much they wanted the win. I have watched almost every game Liverpool have played in the last few seasons because there is not much else to watch here in America and because though it pains me to say it they are bloody entertaining. I am just used to them playing with much more intensity than they seemed to show last night and I do think playing Ox for Firminho was a headscratcher. In the end though, Liverpool took home the trophy with a bargain bin signing in goal who just became an Anfield legend so Klopp clearly knows more about this game than I do.

    Some really bizarre selection decisions in the game last night that certainly helped Chelsea dominate, particularly in the first half. Judging by that I would like to offer my thanks to Franky Lamps for not playing Pulisic and Kante against us on Sunday until it was too late. Overall still left with the impression that if Liverpool had been properly up for it they would have steamrollered Chelsea, just a strangely lethargic performance for much of the game not helped by a somewhat bizarre team selection from Klopp. With their forwards all somewhat knackered from international duty this summer I cannot understand why Shaqiri cannot get a look in, if he doesn't come in for Salah at Southampton this weekend I am just going to have to conclude that he stole Klopp's hob nobs in the cafeteria, cannot think of another reason to keep such a talented plan B at the club and then refuse to play him when your starters look like they are about to have a coronary from overwork. Maybe @Gibbs Hog Heaven has some insider knowledge? Still think it is a two horse race again this season and breaking ranks with most of my fellow United fans I would far rather see Liverpool win than City. My only fear is that Liverpool look terribly thin at the back once the first choice back 4 is out and they may need to be active in the January transfer window to maintain a challenge unless they have a couple of defensive studs in the academy that they are keeping under wraps.
