      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.

Honestly how many years have the Redskins drafted DB's and it had no effect on the defense? None of these DB's were in the same class as Taylor or landry..I mean hell what about champ bailey? Redskins have neglected the DL for so long that i remember people on this board begging for them to draft DL,so what has happened to that thought?

 

the Redskins actually did it.  A good chunk of fans on here would prefer to have things to complain about rather than anything else

Would have taken the Saints action on our pick had they offered. They traded an '18 5th and a '19 1st as well as the 27th pick to the Packers at 14. 

 

they probably didn't

So if I follow them correctly, they will take Ronald Jones at 44. Unbelievable. With James and Edmunds on the board you cannot take Payne. We had gold drop to us. Either trade out - then take Payne or take one of those two. 

 

 

 

I would actually LOVE Jones at 44. But he wont be there. He is my number 2 RB in this draft. And rotating him and Thompson would be SICK.

We did this because we panicked. I can guarantee Vita was our pick at 13 but he was taken at 12. So we reached and took Payne.

Nah, just looking for a semi sex pick or an impact player.  Good pick not sexy or smart to not use to board to our advantage.  More disappointed that we didn't move back especially with Edmunds and James still on the board.

Not even close. I loved the Scherff pick. Solid player and one of the best players on the board. This time you had at least 4 guys that were head and shoulders above Payne in talent. At 13 you can't be about position unless it's QB. James makes the middle of this D instantly better - much better. Payne makes us marginally better. And you could have him or someone like him at 44, easily.

Different situation. Actually one could argue the "hate" was warranted. It was all about not drafting Leonard Williams. Both very good players and I love Scherff but The Big Cat is more valuable imo...

It's just s bad value pick.  It's a reach, that's he problem most have here.  We could have traded back a few picks if there were reasonable offers.  If there weren't you have to take he bpa, and I have a hard time believing Payne was this high on their board.

Its not the position for me. It is the PLAYER. Payne can play the run. He is awful against the pass. No other way to put it. Can he learn to rush the passer? Well. I guess we are going to find out.

Agree but New Orleans traded up and they are still on the board and then Oak took a LT.

thats fine in a value slot, but theres more to the draft then being safe. Leaving blue chip players on board to reach for a d-lineman that is just a run stopper is just like the scheriff pick... > see we fixed that, were all good, keep giving me money....

Even if you set aside this specific pick, its the principle of the thing. We never ever ever take advantage of falling talent that "shouldn't" be there in order to steal talent and get playmakers on the roster, with the exception of Allen last year who lined up with our needs anyways. We go in knowing what we need and we draft that. Regardless of what's on the board tomorrow I'm sure we go RB or CB.

When i looked at his cut ups i saw a player when he wanted to penetrate he did..his 10 yard split is elite..

You and I usually agree but I see Jones as the 4th or 5th back. Really good in space. Good speed when there is a hole. Struggles finding small holes on the inside. Not so bad outside can slide through defenders. But he goes down too easy and can't create against better competition. I hope I am wrong as I am certain that's who we take. 

 

My nightmare draft was Payne at 13 and Jones at 44. So book it. That's what will happen.

PAYNE TRAIN always been our pick over Vea!  He's the better player and the better long-term prospect.  Only way I could be happier right now is if Holtby didn't give up 3 goals in last period!
