  1. We always need a things other than Redskins Thread so we can talk about other D.C. sports, college sports and other things just not political. Here's one for the Wizards: Jared Sullinger is coming back from back & foot injuries. He's playing in the Super16 tourn on ESPN & Balling! TheWizards need to work him out in hopes he can be a back up PF/C, he's been nailing 3's and scoring at will. He looks great.

    Joe Barry with the game ball at the end to Sean McVay, lol 😆 I totally forgot Joe Barry was the assistant HC & linebackers coach for the Rams.
  5. Things other than Redskins

    I'd just roll with McCoy and draft a rookie at some point to develop. I don't know that I 100% buy that Bruce doesn't like rookie QBs, he sure loved RG3! I don't think we should be trading for Foles or Flacco. I could be sold on Wentz - depending on the cost - because he's young.
  6. If, Then, Why Statements...

    I get it, and I am like you in that way where I don't get as emotionally invested anymore. It's like my dad says, ”they don't send me a check.” But I don't think anyone should tell anyone else how they should be rooting for their team. If they want to get emotionally vested, so be it, that's their prerogative.
  7. Things other than Redskins

    I know I wouldn't. There are a lot of factors as to why the Eagles are a good team, and its not all because of just Nick Foles. They have a ton of talent everywhere on the field. They have a ton of weapons like Ertz, Jeffery who both catch everything and Agolor. Their defense is stacked too.
  8. If, Then, Why Statements...

    Yeah, I'm not going to allow another fan tell me how I should be a fan of my favorite team. Thanks for your concerns though.

    I'm not defending anything, you're reading too much into the line that we have won 2 division championships this decade. I certainly know we're a sad franchise. Also, I'm not part of the problem. You don't know me.
  10. #FireBruceAllen

    The fact that Stefan Wisnewski is the top back up interior OL for the Eagles and our starting LG was Shaun Lauvao just shows that Dan Snyder needs to #FireBruceAllen

    While I have empathy for you, those of us who have been fans for 35 plus years have only experienced 2 playoff wins since the Redskins last won the Super Bowl in 1992 and 5 playoff appearances. At least this decade we have 2 playoff appearances and 2 division championships that's better than last decade except we don't have a playoff win but sadly, neither of the two 30 year old QBs who got us to the division championships are with the team anymore.

    The chargers are giving this game away! Horrible muff by King there! Horrible!
  13. Gruden won't hire Kubiak, too much of a threat to his job. Cavanaugh will remain the OC, Callahan will also have some roll there and O’Connell will remain the OC in waiting. I don't know why ppl think the Redskins are going to make major coaching changes, it just ain't going to happen. And it doesn't shock me at all that they fired arguably their best defensive coach, Torian Gray. Just days before ppl were discussing if Manusky should be fired and either Gray or Tomsula being made the defensive coordinator. Lol 😆
  14. Things other than Redskins

    Romo said Derwin James reminds of Sean Taylor bc Sean could play FS, SS & LB. Romo said Sean could do everything you asked of him on the field and so can James. Yet, a certain poster in this forum told me that James shouldn't be drafted as a safety, he should be a corner and preferably a slot corner. Lmao
  15. Off-Topic: The Washington Wizards Thread

    They're not to do it, but keep on saying things that just aren't going to happen ever.
  16. Things other than Redskins

    What example? I said name a winning HC who was fired after having two winning seasons for their offensive coordinator.
  17. Is it too early to focus on the 19 draft?

    There's not two elite QB prospects in the draft and the draft is not overly deep with talent. It's a fine QB draft class, but it's nothing compared to some of the best ones. I mean, in 2012, Foles was a late 3rd, Wilson was a late 3rd and Cousins was a 4th. Then of course there's Luck and RG3 was going good until the injuries and his ego derailed his career. If Herbert had come out, I’d have this QB draft call as a good draft class but he didn't. If he had come out, that means maybe 3 QBs in the top 10 like last year and definitely 4 in the first round, and maybe 5 like last year if a guy like Grier or Murray sneak into the end of the first round, but Herbert didn't come out, so it knocks the QB class down a peg. In fact, at this point - which I agree is way too early - there's arguments going on as to if there is even a top 10 QB in this class. Now, I don't agree with that because by the time the draft rolls around teams will fall in love with a few of them, but those discussions are going on right know and that was never the case with the 2011, 2012 or 2017 draft classes.
  18. Is it too early to focus on the 19 draft?

    Yeah, Jones is big strong, accurate and smart. He a not going to be a flashy qb but I'm with you that he'll be consistent and could end up being the most successful. Haskins and Lock have the most talent and upside though. If they live up to their potential, they'll be perennial pro bowlers and two of the best QBs in the league throughout their careers.
  19. Things other than Redskins

    Nah, the players never get their equal share of the pie. They do all the work, put their bodies, long term health and lives on the line while front office people make billions off of them.
  20. Things other than Redskins

    Umm yeah... So I didn't say that's what I wanted. My point was HCs who have two winning seasons in a row don't get fired for an offensive coordinator on that HC’s coaching staff, and for sure not a 30-year-old offensive coordinator with no HC experience. Nice try in trying to move the goal posts, I commend you for trying to not answer the question I posed to you.
  21. Things other than Redskins

    Probably have to be another lock out where the league won't allow the players to work, I doubt the players go on strike. They should, but many of them make so much money now that I doubt they go on strike. This isn't the 1980’s and before, where many players needed offseason jobs in order to pay their bills bc the league/owners didn't pay them enough to live on.
  22. Things other than Redskins

    Give me another example of a time in the history of the NFL when a HC coming off two straight winning seasons was fired for any offensive or defensive coordinator... Let alone a 30-year-old offensive coordinator with no head coaching experience at any level. The answer is, you can't.
