      The Bill Callahan era began here at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami. For the first quarter it was really,really bad football being played by both teams. 
      The Redskins were determined to establish the Run game. The First Quarter all they established was that they still couldn’t run. Or pass. Or do much of anything. 
       
      It wasn’t until the 2nd Quarter that Peterson was able to start ripping the worst Run D in the League for chunks of 18 & 24 yards. The Skins managed to score a TD with a 25 yard pass to Scary Terry McLaurin. 
       
      The Dolphins would open the Second Half only managing five plays before the Redskins would get the ball punted back to them. They would run a balanced run/pass attack of six plays for 70 yards in 1:25 ending in McLaurin’s second touchdown of the day. The Defense would then get a turnover allowing the Offense to get to Field Goal range and add another 3 points to make the score 17-3. 
       
      To open the Fourth Quarter, Hopkins would miss a 55 yard Field Goal, leaving the score at 17-3.  After being sacked five times, the Dolphins would pull their own switcharoo at QB and go to Ryan “Neckbeard” Fitzpatrick which resulted in a touchdown drive for them, making it 17-10. They went for & recovered the Onside Kick. They also managed to not score any points after that. The Dolphins would find theirselves with ball at the 2:00 Warning. Fitzpatrick would take them on a 9 play 75 yard touchdown drive with six seconds remaining on the clock. Miami went for the win with the 2 Point Conversion and failed. The Redskins would recover the onside kick by Miami and Keenum took a knee to get the Redskins their first win of the season.

Bruno Fernando would be a good option this late. 

Agreed.  I thought he was supposed to be a lottery pick?

Did the Wiz have cap space? Cause Simmons has a salary of nearly $6 million.

Bruno Fernando would be a bit redundant positionally, but i wouldn't be mad if we grabbed him

Feel like a lot of missed opportunities for the Wiz tonight and so far this off-season. Good that they bought back in at least.

Damn I would have loved getting Fernando.  We never have a young cheap rookie athletic center.

Bobby Marks is a computer.  He's incredible.  He is the only national analyst I can think of who knows the NBA salary cap front to back and he can answer questions like this almost immediately.

Is it the foot injury that is scaring every one from Bol? This is a huge drop.

Really impressed with how accurate Fred Katz's reporting on our draft was.  He predicted we would buy a second round pick.  He said the rationale behind it is we want to tie the Go-Go closer to the team and make them more of a AAA affiliate for the Wizards.

 

He's plugged in.

I wish the go go had more coverage because I'm more interested in them right now than the wizards. I can't take too many laughing stock franchises right now

espn's write up on Schofield:

 

Quote

Pre-Draft Analysis

After starting his college career shooting 30 percent from beyond the arc as a freshman, Schofield turned himself into a marksman as a senior, making big shot after big shot all season long -- many of them coming from NBA range and even off the dribble. He has sped up his release and flashed some ability to shoot off movement. He's making tough spot-ups with a hand in his face thanks to his high release and is demonstrating extreme confidence.

Schofield saw almost all of his minutes at small forward, which might not always be the case in the NBA, where his mammoth frame could serve him well as a small-ball power forward, and his weaknesses may be better hidden. He's a little undersized and not the most fluid or natural athlete, but his physicality, aggressiveness and competitiveness will serve him well. He plays the game with a real edge that is tough not to admire. That same toughness translates to the defensive end, where he plays with a terrific motor and uses his strength and length to slide on the perimeter. He has plenty of multipositional versatility.

Some scouts question how much Schofield's clunky, power-ball style and average feel will hold up and whether he might become a one-dimensional player at the NBA level given his poor rebounding, steal and block numbers and paltry free throw attempts. He has been able to keep those notions at bay to an extent with some extremely memorable performances against top-10 teams in Kansas and Gonzaga, which will likely stick with NBA folks considering how well-attended those games were.

we drafted a junior & senior, both with good work ethics and somewhat limited ceilings. they had a plan, and stuck to it. I don't necessarily agree with it, but we'll see how it plays out.
