      ES Coverage Cowboys vs Redskins 2019
       
      9/15/19
       
      Do I look like I'm playing? I'm not playing. This is the Washington Redskins versus the Dallas Cowboys. If you are a fan of this game, and this one does not get you excited you might want to check your pulse.
       
      Hello my friends it is I, JimmiJo, back for another year of this wonderful thing we call Redskins Football. This makes season 14 for me. I am joined by The Spaceman Spiff who will hereafter be known as "The Spaceman Spiff." 
       
      Where's that dude that gets the big tattoos on his back? There's his next one.
       
      So how important is this game? I don't know. What is the different between 1-1 and 0-2? The difference between batting .500 and zippy?
       
      Throw in that this is their 2nd division game to start the year AND a home game and you have a critical match.
       
      And once again they contend with critical injuries to start the year. Last year it was  their rookie star running back. This year its their 2nd year star...well you get the rest.  Darrius Guice is gone and not coming back this year. I think this really hurts him moving forward. Not sure who will build a scheme around him given his first two seasons.
       
      So it is down to the veteran Adrian Peterson. I have no worries of ring rust for hum. None whatsoever. He knows what to do.
       
      Anyway, almost time. Please share your thoughts.
       
      Stand by...

Um, no thank you.  Team already has a similar player and he's a disaster of a linebacker!😂

 

Hail Em Up!

I'm not a big fan of Mason either. My immediate reaction is they need look at another ILB. There are not many decent players available right now and there would be no loss of a player or draft resources to bring him in. Evidently others feel similar or they wouldn't have posted all of the info above. Mason may end out being a starter this year, that is a tough pill to swallow. My understanding is he dropped some weight, hopefully it helps a  little with speed...although it won't make him quick enough to deserve being a starter.

Promote from within by moving Anderson to the inside.

If Bruce is reading the internet, he will be looking at a trade for Reggie Ragland, seen as a poor fit in the Chiefs 4-3 this year.

 

That's the name I keep hearing in my head as well. also a Bama boy...

 

https://chiefswire.usatoday.com/2018/03/04/alabama-lbs-tell-all-about-former-teammate-reggie-ragland/

 

Alabama LBs tell all about former teammate Reggie Ragland

 

A lot of good info in there and our very own SDH is quoted, talking specifically about how Reggie is like a big brother to him... Though not sure he'd like him too much if he came in and took his position.

 

Ed Sheahin is telling everyone to stay the course, meaning he thinks SDH and the newly draft Combs will fit in well. Noted SDH was taking first team snaps ahead of Reuben.

Wow, Martrell Spaight just retired from the Chiefs at age 25... Those previous injuries (concussions) must have caught up to him. Hope he's alright

Hail Em Up!

Funny thing about your idea is that Nick Saban thought Anderson could play ILB.

 

Ryan Anderson played great for us,” Saban said while watching the South team’s Tuesday practice. “I mean the guy had 9-10 sacks and double-digit tackles for loss and was a really good leader on our team. A very, very consistent performer. He can probably play inside backer or outside backer and he’s got some pass-rush ability. I think his versatility as a player creates a lot of value for him.”

Hadn't really thought of that but it makes a lot of sense to try him there! He has the size some speed and he is smarts for it.

I'm sure he could, because from the sound of your post, Ted Ginn and Trey Quinn must have just had a baby together, so I'd sure hope Bostic could outrace a baby.

I like the pick up!!..there wasn’t a whole lot of options left out there as far as an experience stand point to plug and play and we don’t have the luxury of signing an UDFA to develop in a matter of months..Watching Bostic highlights,the man can cover and plays the line well..No,he definitely is Not RF by no means,but I think he plays better than say,resigning Compton back to the squad!!

It ain’t a super sexy move,but definitely a serviceable pickup IMO...any other thoughts????????

All things considered, it is a prudent move. He has made plays and is serviceable. Better than many will probably think. What I want though, in all honesty, is for Holcomb to be a draft day "steal". He has physical attributes that may work in his favor. Hope springs eternal. Hail

Yeah,I like Holcomb a lot..at least having Bostic,it’ll let Holcomb learn and develop and hopefully by mid season he’ll be ready to make the move on seeing more playing time!
