  1. Props? The only potential Redskins HOFer wants to leave. We reportedly way under bid our awesome guard. Mason Foster. DJ Swearinger. Cousins. RG3. Mike and Kyle Shanahan. Zorn. Gregg Williams. Champ Bailey. Norv Turner. Bruce Smith. Deion. Marty. Moses, Cravens and Doctson have all, in different ways, expressed some kind of solidarity with Trent and the training situation. They couldn't even find a new D coordinator because nobody wants to be here. The list is so much longer than the one above. It's filled with former Redskins who hate this franchise. Now one of the best wants out. The only saving grace was the Gibbs 2 era. Props? No way. This is an embarrassment. If you're thinking about draft picks and injury concerns, I get it, but that's the small picture. Our own children want out of this family. It's not everyone else's fault.

    And this is why the talent infusion is not all that exciting for me. I believe our head coach is an offensive coordinator, our d-coordinator is below average and it goes down from there.
  3. I'm not saying we're all wrong on Harmon, but he wasn't just forgotten by 32 teams for 6 rounds. They get paid to do this and chose others over him for their own reasons. He, and hopefully a good QB, will have to prove them all wrong.

    In my alternative reality, we drafted Burns at 15 last night, still traded up for Sweat and traded a 3+5 for Rosen. Would fill less needs, but would have turned our front 7 into hell for the opposition.

    Do you think about our division at all when thinking about who we should pick? Playing Barkley, Zeke and the Eagles usually 4-headed monster of a run game is always on my mind. It's one reason I think Norman still has value here. I'm less likely to want a Greedy/Long type for that reason, but I'm not sure that's really logical on my part.
  6. Anything can happen in a game, but the only way Barkley is a non-factor over time against us or anyone else is either injury or ineptitude by the Giants. We'd have to be 2000 Ravens good on D to think that's possible.

    Ioannidis, Payne and Allen. Pushing the pocket is our strength. Speed around the edge is the compliment those guys needed.
  8. Ummm, what? Really, what? Saquon will become a non-factor when he loses his other-worldly athleticism. He is a freak that is destined for the HoF if he stays healthy. Generational talent. I love that we got Sweat too, but be realistic.

    If Cody Ford falls to where we can get him, I'd do that. He won't, and we won't, but I'd be ecstatic.
  10. I thought the same thing. Then realized they have Clowney, Watt and a QB that was sacked about 1,000 times last year. They needed OL too much to go any other direction.

    I worry he's something like Jeff George, but I can only speculate. We really cannot know what to believe, but if he was an engaging personality who's smart and accurate, I would think the new coach and GM would love to make him the cornerstone of their franchise.

    If Murray doesn't go at 1, the Skins and others will have more incentive to trade up for the QB they all actually want (Murray). If the Cards don't want Murray, I wonder what the Giants would pay to go to #1? That is the game the Cards should have been playing this entire time. But if Murray's their guy no matter what, I guess that game wouldn't make sense.

    I had heard something like this about a month ago. It was along the lines that the Skins/Cards had a deal for Rosen all sewn up but that the NFL didn't want it announced to try to build draft hype.

    Not disagreeing with this in any way, but it also reminds me of the importance of being a smart, disciplined, hard working and well coached team. Which reminds me of my larger opinion...who we pick this weekend matters little until a new front office and coaching staff join them.

    I absolutely know nothing about what is real, but the hype around Lock at the Senior Bowl was real. I'm not sure I believe anything else that has been said since, but he blew at least some people away. I really think he's going higher than people are talking about now. Wouldn't be shocked if he goes top 5 when all is said and done.
