  1. Colt McCoy is gonna light the Iggles up, I say. 7-5, and on the way to 10-6.

    Alex Smith Actual Status

    Nothing would surprise me. I think he should retire, but my guess is he will not. I'm just not that lucky. From what I know of him, he's very stubborn, and he loves "the rush" of playing. ( which may seem ironic to some, considering his style of play ) He needs to look at his wife, 3 boys, bank account.. and make the smart decision. Will he? doubt it. In his mind, I bet he's eager to get back in there... prove to the team and fans that he can and will earn that contract handed out.

    Starting QB 2019???

    We are in agreement on the lack of supporting cast. I think the FO felt they couldn't address everything, so they gambled on a lot of positives to pan out on player durability. Oops, fail. I hope the OTs can play better. I hope the IOL can improve. I hope most of the skill players can finally get onto the field again. I hope McCoy's years in the system can make Washington the division Champs and more. I hope the officiating eases up off the game crippling penalties for the Skins. Maybe it can happen.. and predicting yay or nay doesn't amount to much. I'm now taking the path that many fans did back in September. Expecting the worst, hoping for the best. Getting pretty numb to this 2018 season. Every year, it's like a fun puzzle that gets put together bit by bit. Well, this year's puzzle sure looks about put together, and the best of it not coming out of the NFCE.

    Starting QB 2019???

    Hope this is right. I don't want to see Alex play football anymore, and for differing reasons, we can probably all agree to that much. I'm ready to see Guice and some new QB lead the charge in 2019. Smith needs to be smart, and cash out already.

    Starting QB 2019???

    Have to go with a cheap option to counter-balance the hit. I really hope McCoy can step up and look competent minus an extra wtf? throw here or there. Doesn't he have some out-clause in his contract if he plays well or plays enough? I would think he would likely want to stay in DC if he feels he will be the likely QB1 and if Jay stays. Colt counts just 3.5 against the cap next yr. Draft a day 2 quarterback to develop behind him, and hope for the best. Get another cheap guy to develop at QB3, and the overall cap cost for all QBs would be around 25 mil. Still cheaper than what some teams are paying their QB1s. It's not ideal, but it seems many didn't expect Smith to do well enough in DC regardless of health. So once that contract was extended, the two years were "killed" anyway? I don't think there's a way out of that dead cap hit, unless there was some conduct detrimental to the team caveat, and Smith's a boyscout.

    Redskins receiving corp is beginning to shape up

    I think they will try hard to select a WR with their first draft pick. They probably NEED to go with a cheaper rookie, since Paul is costing so much. They will enjoy the cap relief of dumping Reed and maybe VD as well, but then they open up great TE need too. Other than rush LB, the defense looks pretty solid next year as is.. so I wouldn't be surprised or unhappy with lots of O-help in the offseason.

    Redskins receiving corp is beginning to shape up

    Hope so, and I like these guys too. I think it's a large stretch to expect any of them to evolve into clear starter quality, but there is talent worth developing further, as we call them decent depth. I'm just about looking at 2018 as "a building year only", so I am wanting to see Mo Harris get a lot more opportunities to grow into a starter. Not worried or even interested in getting Crowder back at this point. I can't see them retaining him anyway, so he would just be taking snaps from someone else they may actually keep around. So, you look at a 2019 season with Mo Harris, Sims, Quinn, and Davis. Then, you look at Doctson. I don't know. Half the season left to make better decisions on what to do at WR. Paul Richardson will obviously be back, with his contract. Keep all these names (minus Crowder), and you got your 6 wideouts. Does this list of 6 wideouts match up well at all if to look around the League at every other team's WR roster by September 2019? ?

    I think you and anyone else had enough justification in being optimistic. Takes a bit of a leap of faith to expect players to stay healthy and progress.. but what are fans for? if not throwing some faith out? ?

    Redskins receiving corp is beginning to shape up

    Certainly fits well with my less experienced outlook and expectations. Probably. Barely remember at this stage. At 4 mil next season, IIRC, not so bad. Not sure if there will be the need, but Guice shouldn't be relied on as a heavy load back.. certainly not yet. Want AP back for rotation, if reasonable. Agree with overall sentiments of what will be needed. Where are you on VD and even JR for TE in 2019? Same. Would have selected him at 13th overall, if in charge, lol. I don't know jack about prospects just yet.. if they are not LSU or Miss State. Used to love the draft process. Not sure just how much anymore. (older and lazy)

    Thanks overall. To this, I applaud your remaining optimism. I heard all these great things of CT.. even think I remember a play or two of legitimacy. Now, he's just like a Crowder or JR to me. An occasional splash nice! play.. but I barely remember anything worthy of much. Maybe I'm spoiled of watching so many wow plays from other teams. Maybe I'm just jaded, and Smith ruins everything he touches. Whatever it is, hope they fix it, of course. I want Guice coming into good things. Alex has had about all the good things he'll ever get, plus 150 million bucks to compensate the rest of the misery. Washington made a fan of me for life (probably) by adding Guice. If 2018 is to fall off the rails, I just want 2019 to begin with something worth enjoying. I know Smith deserves it, but I also know Guice deserves it perhaps even more.

    Thanks for your thoughts on it.. and the Jets heads-up too. I remember the name Robby Anderson flashing some, but can't say I really know for sure what he's about. I liked Kearse as a weapon in Seattle, but no idea what's become of him these days. Enunwa is another name maybe flashing here or there, but like Anderson, can't really say. I remember liking Burnett as a prospect, but again, dunno if he's even played a down.

    Thanks for the insight. Kirk was the name I forgot in AZ. Garcon has not been as expected in SF, but a lot of that has been on Beathard and even Jimmy G for not throwing accurate passes to him. Even at his age, I'd have Garcon on the field instead of Doctson, tbh. I actually like Dallas' now trio of Cooper, Beasley, and young Gallup. Much rather have that group right now.. though it's not what I'd call a huge margin of superiority. (looking beyond current Redskins' injuries) I don't really know how good that young WR Davis is for Titans... and I recognize not one other named WR they have.

    Yep. Buddy told me the Saints are hunting around for Dez now too. Guess elite QBs need better WRs too sometimes. This made me most sad. I was good with getting HHCD like that, but I most wanted to see a trade for DJack. I'd have gone as high as a 3rd rd pick for him. I would take Marquise Goodwin over any 2 of the WRs at the top of the depth chart. Seriously. He's really good, and that deep speed is top shelf. I can't even think of who AZ has, other than Fitz.

    So, how many and which teams do have a worse WR corps anyway?

    Been watching, and Garcon doesn't seem the same player anymore, sad to say. Loved the Jimmy Ward draft selection back then, but he's been even more disappointing. To be fair of him though, he should have been a FS from day 1, and has been poorly utilized there from day 1.
