Yeah. A 4-3 with DL of Young, Allen, Payne, and Sweat could be really nice.

With Reuben Foster in the middle and Ryan Anderson as one of the other LB's...we would really just need to add a couple of key pieces (safety and impact LB) and the defense would be solid. And ypu didnt even mention Ionaiddis on the line mixing in.

Yes, that's what would need to happen. Now, the odds that 3 of the 5 worst teams in the NFL beat three teams needing wins for playoff berths/seeding? Again, not realistic. If you want to bank on it, that's your funeral. 

 

There is a possibility that we could still win the tiebreaker with Miami, so it's possible the other two win and and a bunch of other stuff happens and we get #2, but still an incredible long shot.

Are the Packers resting starters against the Lions?

Nope. We still have a first round bye to play for so we have to win.

Technically it would require 4 of the 5 worst teams in the nfl to beat teams who need wins for possible playoff implications. 

 

And that definitely isn't going to happen.

Of course, we don't need that 4th team to win to get the second pick, which is kind of the point.

Why not? Losing out on Chase Young to win a meaningless week 17 game is such a Redskins thing to do. Plus the Cowboys kinda suck.

What if Sean was in the draft and we had to lose to Dallas in order to get him?

 

edit: And if we don’t, the Giants get him.

We need to pull for Joe Burrow to light up the college playoffs and win the national title....If he shows poorly things could get dicey at #1 and for us. Let's Go Joe!!!

Burrow is clearly #1, by a mile now. Hell, if he fell to us, talk about a bonanza of trade offers. Burrow is the ****. Hail

Yeah, breaking a record for TD thrown in a NCAA playoff game before halftime should have made him look pretty good.

Chase Young didn’t get hurt and is done playing. Too bad Burrow didn’t lose. Need him to stay healthy. We don’t need anymore Tua injuries to bring down the value. Let’s secure the second pick tomorrow and get ready for the draft. I already booked my trip to Vegas for it.

I think if we were in the QB market, we wouldn't really been have this inner turmoil. We wouldn't question whether Burrow was the one we want and there would be posters cursing the team for winning games against Miami and Carolina. The reason we worry about Cinci wanting Young is because we want Young. It's because we've seen enough from Haskins to hope that he could become pretty good.

Where was Chase Young last night?  He seems to be off the past few games.

 

I presume he was gearing up to read and drop into coverage early and often in his budding career, and follow in the footsteps of Preston Smith, Montez Sweat and friends.  His heart probably sank last week when he saw us move into #2 overall.  Sadly, no prospect that is paying attention would want to be drafted by us.

It is similar to what Bruce Lee said in Enter the Dragon.  He spoke of the art of fighting without fighting.   The Redskins must master the art of winning without winning.😉

No, you don't build "depth" by putting a borderline Pro Bowl player on the bench behind 4 straight 1st round picks while the rest of your roster has holes everywhere. That's just a misallocation of resources. 

Worked out quite well for that early mid 2000s didnt it?

I've heard that we may be switching back to a true 4-3 once we clean house with the coaching staff. I welcome that move, as I don't think we've ever had the players run a true 3-4, especially at linebacker.

Although, was it me or did Young look small last night going up gainst that left tackle?
