      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.

Apprehension based on old moves made by a front office and coaching staff that are long gone.  

 

I get the concern having a large amount tied up in a single player, but Collins young, 3 time pro-bowler, and was a team captain.  We do need to use him correctly.  I do not want to see him isolated against Ertz with any real consistency.  

 

This may have been a move to create a buzz... but we got a really good football player.  

 

I mean...signing really good players SHOULD create a buzz

Bakedtater is a troll.  We haven't had a top-flight safety since Sean.  That pick up solidifies that position for four years, so now we can concentrate on the other glaring needs... RG for instance.  We have a decent amount of picks to address the LB spots, WR,  and find a 3rd back.  Chillax, my dude.  It's only March.

Have you ever checked out any other threads in this wonderful site?..why don't you explore a little bit and find out how I really feel about getting Landon Collins.

They pay and no state income tax. Same with Miami. Also, 4 of the top 5 have good weather.

You notice the Chiefs aren't listed, even though they signed Mathieu for practically the same contract (and it could be argued that it's worse).

Example: signing Keenum gets criticized almost immediately with comments like "Oh great, Keenum is just mediocre enough to get the Skins a 7-9 record," "when will the Skins stop signing average-to-below-average talent for cheap deals?"...and even RG3 taking a shot on twitter saying "Yep, that's just what the fans wanted" (or words to that effect)...

 

That's followed by signing Collins, and there is a sizeable contingent saying things like "Same old Redskins, overspending for overrated talent," "this is Snyder trying to distract the fanbase with a splashy signing," "shiny new toy" (sorry, RandyHolt lol...saw this mentioned far more than just by you, though)...and that one guy on twitter saying that he loves following the Skins during free agency because they always act like a kid with an Amazon gift card who "has no idea how money works" (which Reid retweeted with obvious glee)...

 

 

I think it just shows how jaded and bitter people are. They want to win, and want it RIGHT NOW.. which is understandable considering how bad this team has been over the last 2 decades. Even though it's not reflected in the standings yet, the team is trending in the right direction. The last few drafts have been excellent, (imo) and they've got a ton of picks to upgrade the team some more this year. Yes there have been missteps (Smith contract) but I generally agree with the direction the team is headed.  Just need to find that elusive "franchise" guy and develop him.

 

I'm probably in the minority, but I liked the Keenum trade. I think he's a solid starter and would wager he'd put up better numbers than Smith did. I also think he's an excellent "bridge" qb to mentor whoever we end up drafting and sitting this year. Same with Collins, like the deal and think he's an excellent player who will help the defense. Some will complain it's rearranging the deck chairs, but whatever. It's a solid move and a smart one imo.

I like the Keenum deal for what it is, QB competition for a team that has a lot of money tied up in QBs.  Collins is a lot, but that doesn't bother me either (will depend a little on how they decide to treat the FS position).  I also don't need to see them win now.

 

I do see a bunch of guys trying to save their jobs and doing things that are for right now, when that may not be the best case plan.  They make good moves at times, last years draft was solid.  However, I do think the Alex Smith trade and signing was a bad idea last year, before the injury happened.  I don't see this year as a playoff push year and Keenum/Collins doesn't change that. 

 

With years of losing or solid looking teams failing, it's no wonder people are frustrated.  I get annoyed when people decide to use that to tell people they are stupid because they don't see things shiny and new or that they should turn in their fan card.  They are here because they are fans too.

The same brass that has proven to be a train wreck for their team the last 2 seasons and hired a worse coach then Jon Gruden's dumber brother and started a fire sell last year.  Really nothing valid about validating the NY Giants brass.

Stop it, you are paying a box safety shut down corner money when you are strapped and you are going to say the Giants brass does not know what THEY are doing? LC wanted 11mil from the Giants and they let him walk and we threw 14 on him. Guess you think Andy R does not know what he is doing either. On the other side if you get the guy from 3-4 years ago then maybe it is not that bad but he has had injury prob the last 2 years and he was not playing up to his first 2 years ability. Time will tell but right now, IMO we overpaid for a flawed player.

Think I would rather have Tate than Crowder or is it a wash?

 

It may come down to salary, but Crowder had more than enough chances here.  The grass ain't always greener sure but with or without Crowder our WR group is thin... literally and figuratively.  The only durable WR we have, Mike Quick, cannot even get on the field.  I am encouraged that Doc survived physically last year, but still think he would be well served to crush some protein shakes.

Are the skins interested in Bell? 

Highly doubt it, think that was just speculation before we got Collins. I don’t want Bell personally I’m ready to see Guice shine.

Our Practice Squad guys have their best shot this year to make active roster and get targets. Here’s hoping they can and do.
