    Yeah but why does it benefit Jay to talk about his true intentions too? Like if he theoretically loved someone, you think he’s going to say that?

    Blame? Nah, I get it. My Dad after years of having STH and taking me to games as a little kid finally gave them up after all the nonsense that Dan and this franchise has put us through. But in my mind we FINALLY somehow someway began to draft well, retain the most important guys while letting the other guys go for comp picks. Late rounders/UDFA began to pan out and contribute for us. Built a monstrous homegrown D line. Just a few things I clamored for for years and we finally started delivering on them. So for me, personally, yes it would be a shame to see Snyder step back in and ignore the wishes of the smarter football people in that building that are bringing some of those things. Like you said, it’s a hypothetical, but this is something I brought up right after the season. I didn’t think it would be possible for Dan to sit still any longer with all of the apathy setting in, just bad timing as we now finally showed the ability to build a football team the right way.

    My worst fear may be coming to reality. I LOVED the way weve been building. Loved the comp picks, love the attention to d line, love getting actual value out of late rounders, just to name a few. But it became too boring and the fans disappeared and/or worried more about raising a pitchfork with Allen’s head on it. And now it’s time for Danny boy to step in, or so he thinks. What a shame.

    I don’t think it’s coincidence that we are exploring trade up talks as soon as it has come out that Cards might not take Murray. He’s the one guy they probably believe our defense and running game coupled with his dynamic playmaking ability could mask some of the other weaknesses we have and take us to where we are trying to go. I would be floored if we traded up for anyone outside of Murray. Too much smoke about too many holes and would rather trade down than up for me to believe we are going to mortgage the future for the 2nd/3rd QB prospect in an iffy class. My 2 cents

    I dont disagree. But this year just feels unique for me. I always had a suspicion that Murray to Cards wasn't as done a deal as everyone thought it was. For two reasons. One being that there seems to be a few guys at the top that are Defensive Player of the Year type talent. Build around your defense types. Guys like Bosa/Williams/Oliver/Allen seem to be in the mold of elite defensive cornerstone based off of what I have read. So there is absolutely a heavy opportunity cost to weigh here, which is if they take Murray, they no longer have the chance to add a stud defender. And there always HAD to be a legitimate discussion among the top brass over what's better, Murray and a third, or Rosen and the top pick in the entire draft. That conversation becomes a little more intriguing if its Murray and a 2nd. Hence all the rumors from different teams being "the ones" in the Rosen sweepstakes yet Arizona has made no "official" calls to teams around the league. Another reason though is Murray himself. He's dynamic I get it. He's Kingsbury's wet dream, I know. But at the end of the day he's a 5'10 QB with one year of production and Baseball to turn to. If he were Andrew Luck can't miss then I would have bought Murray to Cards day one. And if this draft wasn't as strong at the top I'd get it. But it's certainly not slam dunk which is what I believe we see playing out before our very eyes. They don't even know which direction they want to go. So if he falls, then why trade to 2 when it's most likely the Raiders at 4 that you want to jump in front of? That's a reason I think you hear a lot of Jets are interested in trading back rumors. They are likely gauging interest in their pick with the realization that Murray very well would slide past 2 if he slides past 1. I won't be shocked either way. And I certainly wouldn't be shocked if Snyder said F it again and went to 3 for him. He makes his boldest moves in the lowest of lows. And things are feeling pretty low after last year's collapse and heightened fan apathy. Just saying...

    I think it would be for Murray. Said it since he declared and went all in on football, Dan was probably salivating.

    Personally I think it makes too much sense to add an impact player elsewhere and roll with Colt/Case. I have to think that’s Jay’s mindset as well. However I have zero doubt that Snyder is less than enthused to market to the STH the case and Keenum show and I’m sure that’s where some of the disagreement lies. Like you said, I would really hope this was a Kyle Smith/scouring decision and not a hailmary to put butts back in seats.

    What would everyone prefer? Override Jay but secure what the FO believes to be the QBOTF (Haskins in this case). Or Jay is allowed to roll with colt/case and we draft an impact player elsewhere? Pretty torn. But if they think he has the goods and Jay doesn’t want him bc he’s not going to step in week 1 as the starter so we pass on him, I think that’s more dentrimental than potentially overriding the HC on who to draft.

    That was the Jarvis Jenkins Hankerson Roy Helu Dejon Gomes draft I believe. Not sure exactly what it fetched us though.
  10. That was my first thought. Well done!

    Could do a lot worse than Brown at 15. I think the question becomes would you rather have an edge like Burns or Ferrell in round 1 and then Harry/Samuel/Brown in 2 or Brown in round 1 and then go another direction round 2. I think I’d prefer stud defender and then go offense rest of way but by no means would I be pissed adding arguably the most eclectic playmaker in the draft. Trade down and get him still? That would be double sweet.

    Reuben Foster Will Not Be Suspended!!

    Rueben doesn’t need to get a gold jacket for the juice to be worth the squeeze. The way you’re acting is we traded significant assets and/or used significant cap space to bring him on. We didn’t. In fact, the whole reason it was considered such a shrewd move by me at the time, is that we essentially are carrying a salary cap penalty with Smith on the books. The way to combat that is to add elite talent at a cheap cost, which can be done through the draft and through acquisitions like Foster. Only way it would have been a problem in my eyes is if he was convicted and we continued to employ him. But in today’s ultra sensitive society, coupled with an angry fan base, it was the perfect recipe for the Redskins’ “piss poor handling of the situation” in the eyes of many. But I know how much it must pain you and others to see us make a move that pays off.

    It is actually hilarious the reaction to signing him was so incredibly negative and now that he’s cleared it’s crickets.
  14. I thought it was a no brainer at the time. Glad it turned out well for us. Landon and Reuben provides us with more talent and athletic ability in the middle of our defense than we’ve had in quite some time. With our DL up front and we add another difference maker in the front 7 to go with Kerrigan off the edge it could be a pretty fun defense to watch.

    Starting QB 2019???

    Gut tells me Rosen is a skin for a 3 and a conditional 3 next year. Pass rusher round 1 and then bolster offensive weapons. Trade down always in play for this team but kind of hope they just take a stud edge at 15.
