  1. I thought it would be interesting, to see the views of our fellow brothers/sisters here on what they see with this teams roster makeover. So to really get detailed on your thoughts, I thought maybe we should give each Redskins Roster positional group a score. 1 being terrible 2 being pretty bad 3 being average 4 being pretty darn good & 5 being absolutely elite You have the choice of looking at this with the overall depth we have at that position. Or you may choose to look at who's starting & compare that individual league wide & scoring based off that premise. Either way, there's no right or wrong opinion. Just your personal assessment, on how you view the talent for each positional group going forward. You may even write a "reason" for your grade, if you feel an explanation is necessary. So have at it! 😎 Also, there are 16 different positional groups I've put together. So a perfect team would grade out to "80" if all were scored 5 "elite". QB's=3 (At this time, I feel we could be better or worse than a 3. We have a QB with good experience & a rookie with possibly elite talent. But both are still learning the playbook for year 1 & none of us know how this will transpire for the season.) RB's=5 (I think we have one of the best groups of RB's in the league. A HOFer, a 1st Rd talent in Guice that injured his knee rookie season, another in Love who did the last play his college season & Chris Thompson. Any 4 of those could be starting for another team & we have them all. Personally, I think it's the best group of RB's in the NFL on 1 team. Unfortunately, injuries hasn't allowed us, to see it yet. But we will!) WR's=2 (Until we see what McLaurin, Harmon, Sims & Quinn do on the field, this is more than a fair score. Richardson & Doctson keep it from being a 1, but one can't stay healthy & the other can't reach it's full potential. I do however think that the ability is there & a "4" could be reached with good QB play & good health. But our best wr the last couple of years, now plays for the Jets. TE's=5 (I give this unit a 5, because they're that good. Unfortunately, injuries hasn't allowed us to see the whole unit for a whole season. But when your backup TE is shredding starting defenses with Josh Johnson @QB? And you know your starting TE is even better than that guy, who's in his 30's? Then you know you have elite TE's. It's also why I think Haskins should start, with the pairing of our running game. When healthy, I also believe we have the best TE combo in football. Definitely, top 3!) OT=4 (I think Williams & Moses is pretty darn good. When healthy, these guys are a very good unit) OG's=3 (Sherff makes this group a 3 alone. He's a stud! But until we get that LG panned out, that's all it will ever be. If Flowers or our Rookie solidify this spot, it could be better than our Tackles. OC=3 (Didn't really know how to grade the Frenchman. But we drafted "popcorn" as well, so our depth seems to be pretty decent. I think average is a fair score, here) DE's=5 (The Greek & J. Allen are awesome!) NT's=5 (Payne & Settles are freakin' beasts as well. Funny how we all complained for YEARS that we needed to address the D-line & here we are. Arguably, the best upcoming D-line in the NFL. They're just young... OLB's=5 (This is going to be the scariest unit in football next season. I'm talking about Kerrigan & Sweat rounding corners & harassing QB's. Is 5 premature? Yes, but when a LBer has RG3 speed @6'6" 260 lbs? We know what Kerrigan can do.) ILB's=2 (Rueben would have made this unit a 3 right off the bat, with his talent alone. So losing him is gonna hurt. I think our front line & OLBers can mask a little of their weaknesses. But I'm now, very concerned with this group. Maybe our rookie Cole Holcomb can improve this unit?) CB's=3 (I'm not ready to say we are good at CB yet. I like Jimmy Moreland & hope F. Moreau & others can solidify our #2 & slot spot. But only Norman makes me feel ok about this group. I think the potential is there, I just gotta see it) FS's=3 (I actually like M. Nicholson. I think he's pretty good. I think we lack depth back there, but I'm fine with him starting. I think he's at least, average. But when I watch him, he plays better than average, imo.) SS's=5 (Landon Collins is a stud!) K=4 (Hopkins is the best kicker we've had since Chip Lohmiller, imo. If he had a bit stronger leg, he'd be "5") P=5 (most underrated player on the team, period! I think he's one of the 3 best Punters in the League.) Lohmiller & Roby was the last K/P duo we had that were great. We now have that again. About damn time. Anyways, I got 62/80. Or .775% talent score. What you got?
  2. I dropped the Redskins down to 9-7. (From 10-6) Alex Smith has 3 pro bowls, but he's never playing football again. (Although, still officially on the roster) All records should be accurate according to the total number of players on your team, that have a pro bowl to their name.

  6. The formula I'm using is new, but in chiefs case? Probably, wouldn't have had their record as good as it was. I'm still tinkering with O/D overall grades, which is a headache at the moment. But I am taking the overall amount of pro bowlers per team, as indication of overall record. What I'm struggling with, is the total Pro bowls combined & generating an O/D ranking. Then ranking them vs all the other teams in the league. I may post overall record first, for all teams. Then go back & figure out a formula for WHY those teams had the record they had, based on my projections. But right now, there's still a bunch of teams to get. (Mostly NFC) But it's fun!
  7. Thread updated. Still plenty of teams to do.
  8. Eagles are up, btw. Also wanted to add, that your offensive & defensive rankings will change as more teams get added for completion. For example, the browns currently have the #9 overall offense at the moment. That will possibly change for them, as well as other teams. HOWEVER, your Overall record? Will never change. Once I get it up there, that's what your 2019 projected overall Record will be. So good luck!
  9. Redskins, Patriots & Browns are now complete. I will be using an overall Record, overall Offense & overall Defense for each team. Thanks!
  10. Had to tweek the formula a bit. Should be good to go. Gotta run an errand. I'll the browns when I get back. Looking good, guys!
  11. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to include M. Slater for the Patriots. Although an outstanding player, him being a Gunner on special teams doesn't allow me to use him in this formula. Otherwise, the Patriots would probably be #1 on special teams as a whole. Which is a big part of football & winning games.
  12. I need a fan of each of the 32 teams to give me this info. (Be much quicker) I have a crazy formula, that will predict your team's record for the 2019 season. (I believe I can also give each teams Offensive & Defensive rankings) I will edit all updated info on this main page, once the results are posted here for me. Again, I don't care who your starter is. I don't care how long they've played. Obviously, rookies won't fit into this equation. I need to know who on your roster has made at least 1 pro bowl. (Note: I do NOT need K/P from your roster) I will represent the Washington Redskins. Redskins position/player/# of pro bowls RB) A. Peterson=7 TE) J. Reed=1 TE) V. Davis=2 OT) T. Williams=7 OG) B. Scherff=2 OLB) R. Kerrigan=4 CB) J. Norman=1 CB) DRC=2 SS) L.

  13. My personal take on the 2019 Redskins schedule

    If we can win 4 of our 6 interconference games, beat Dallas once, beat Philly once & sweep the Giants. That would give us 8 wins. Win 3 of 4 in the AFC East & that would give us 11. We may have to win games the old fashion way, while our rookie QB gets his feet under him. But we have a stable of RB's & a good line when healthy. Our Defense has a chance to be stellar, if they can stay healthy. I see Haskins being very successful at playaction. Our affective running game will allow Haskins to take deep shots down the field for big plays with his big arm. Something Alex didn't do very often. I see 2 things being the difference in this team from last year. 1)big plays on Offense & Defense 2)overall team speed on Offense & Defense I see this as the key element in our success this season & why I predict a good season. Hopefully, the health of our team allows us to do this.
  14. My personal take on the 2019 Redskins schedule

    Ya, I know. We're the only team in the league that hasn't won 11 games since 1995 or something like that. I believe we're due, for a surprisingly good season. Hoping it's this year.
  15. It's going to be very interesting how this season shakes out. Probably one of the most brutal opening set of games I can remember in some time. Would like to point out that we only have 2 primetime games this season. (Wk-3 Bears, Wk-8 @Vikings) We also don't play on Thanksgiving this season. It's been since 2015 since we hadn't been scheduled on Turkey Day. (coincidentally, we made the playoffs that year) The other 14 games are also 1pm start times.(noon, for CT Midwest people like myself) When you break the schedule off in Qtrs, obviously Qtr 1 & Qtr 4 are the most important & significant games regarding playoff appearance importance. But I'm of the belief, that it's going to be our non-division, Conference games that will decide our fate regarding us making the playoffs. Don't get me wrong, our Divisional games are crucial & we can't be going 1-5 & expect a good season. But I do believe 3-3 in the NFC East could be enough, providing we do well in the Conference & non-conference games. We got Bears, 49ers, Lions at home. And Vikings, Panthers, Packers on the road. I truly believe, if we can win 4 of these 6 games? We make the Playoffs, because the other games will fall in place. Hopefully, we do even better than that. The other good thing is, we have a week 10 bye week. Unlike, last year where it was week 4. We could never recover from those injuries after a good 6-3 start. This season, it will be huge to have our guys recover during that wk-10 period. Im predicting an 11-5 season for us, which I'll admit...would probably be a miracle if it happened. I don't doubt the teams overall talent & I believe they are more than capable of having success. I just hope Gruden is a good enough coach, to get us there. I also believe this should be Gruden's last chance, at getting us a Playoff birth. No more excuses & it's time for results. If he can't get us the success we deserve this season, than he should be let go so we can look for someone who can. Regardless, of who is starting @ the QB position.
