      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.

and a possible replacement for Chris Thompson down the line

Right now he'll replace Chris Thompson on the IR, or they'll both share a place there at some point during the season...

I think it's more nefarious than that. I think SIP is buttering the toast and angling to be hired as a team scout. Look out Bruce! SIP is after your job!!!

SIP is also good at politics according to him, maybe he could help Dan finding a stadium better than Bruce.

 

SIP will save us!

ABC just touting the pick of Harmon and the Redskins draft overall. Harmon looks like a player. Born in Liberia came to US when 4years old.

I guess this is the one that will disagree with the rest. I think Hall is a far superior player. Harmon is SLOW and he struggles to get separation. Those two traits are a death nail for an NFL WR. He won on physicality in college. He wont be able to do that in the NFL.  I wonder if they dont try to pull a Niles Paul with him and bulk him up to move him to TE? I mean it is a 6th rounder so no big deal. But there was a much better player at the position available IMO.

 

Every analyst raving about the pick but I’m sure your board is better.

So, it looks like the only unaddressed hole will be free safety. Pretty good job of collecting talent. Got a top edge rusher, qb, super fast wide receiver, a couple of offensive line man, and a possible replacement for Chris Thompson down the line. Now, we just need to convince Gettleman to trade his 2020 second rounder for our pair of seventh rounders...

 

Agree with the free safety, but I would also add a blocking TE. Although we do have a FB on the roster who has been under-utilised, so who knows.

Nope. But it is my board. And this is the first time I have had a negative comment in 3 days. So go pound sand.

One of my favorite late round guys is James Madison CB Jimmy Moreland. He's a ballhawk with outstanding play speed. He's undersized but I could see him moving to safety and getting his hands on a bunch of footballs. He reminds me of @Damontaekazee coming out of college.

Pick Jimmy Moreland fom JMU and call it a day!!

There will be a lot of competition at WR now. 

Harmon will pressure Doctson as he takes over all the contested passes.

His speed is supposed to be an issue.  I'm seeing 4.6 as his combine 40.

What about Anquan Boldin or Larry Fitzgerald?

I think this is reasonable, that's clearly the main reason why he fell. Today's NFL is a game of separation, and WR's are getting smaller and quicker due to that and the rule changes protecting them over the middle.

 

On the other hand, people here (not saying you) would have gone berserk if we took another player with injury issues (which is the clear reason Hall is dropping imo)

Damn, so you're saying he can't even run for POTUS after his HOF career is over? Terrible pick

Feels like the go DB and TE. There are a few good ones for each position remaining.

Interesting, unless there’s a trade, the Cardinals will make both the first, and last pick in this draft. They got #1 and they have Mr. Irrelevant too.

Can't stand the "whacky personality" guy on NFLN. Eisen, Charles and DJ is good enough.

I could really go for Tyree Jackson in the 7th. Maybe Rypien if that's more their style (and no doubt it is, I would be surprised to not see that pick to be honest). 

 

Getting another DB or TE in the pipeline would be nice as well.

Do you mean in terms of what he could have been? Or do you dislike the skill-set, and you mean post-knee stuff

Posted (edited)

My wife is slaving through the draft with me because I got it on multiple TVs so she has little choice and she's listening to me carp all day long about Kelvin Harmon not being taken.  I did it on this thread too.  So lol I don't think I've ever been this elated about a late round prospect -- partly because I invested a lot of misery waiting for it to go down. 

 

The Alpha comment below same thing I've said about him.  Easy to see watching him -- this dude has a lot of Pierre Garcon in him as to his feistiness.    I like Doctson more than most here but he's not an Alpha on the field.  Harmon is all Alpha.  As I said on the draft threat IMO outside of N'Keal Harry there is no WR I'd put more money on than Harmon to go get a 50-50 contested catch.  He IMO will bring some needed attitude to the offense.

Moving to TE is a good idea. I would've preferred Arcega-Whiteside over Harmon but obviously Sweat was the right pick ahead of him. The reason I like the big-body WR types with great hands is they always seem to be between the QB and the CB. One perception I have of Haskins is he struggled with slants and hitches. Usually a hot read so the ball is a laser but not the best pass and his OSU receivers struggled. A guy like Harmon should help in that department.

I'm just talking about the 40 times. I'm assuming they were citing successful players with slow 40 times (although Fitz did not run a slow 40 at all)
