  1. Here’s my thing, does anyone know if/think they’ll play Edmunds as a dime ILB? I think he’d do well there in the way that a lot of strong safety types have done in the last few years since the NFL had become more pass happy. IMO they should take Vince Williams off the field in passing situations and put Edmunds on the field in his place. This should/could help mitigate the loss of Shazier’s coverage abilities at ILB.

    New-look Redskins need these five players to thrive in training camp https://wapo.st/2LmFVnj?tid=ss_tw&utm_term=.a556cfdfa17f 1. Alex Smith 2. Derrius Guice 3. Josh Doctson 4. Daron Payne 5. Montae Nicholson Obviously there’s a lot more players than these who need to thrive. This is a good top 5 list though.
  3. Tony Sparano Dead at the Age of 56

    Sad, RIP. I didn’t realize he was only 56. Wow. How sad.
  4. There will probably never be another Troy in NFL history, but players like Edmunds and other young SS/dime ILB types have the potential to be playmakers and game changers too.
  5. Bell contract 2018

    I still wouldn’t want the Steelers defense trying to stop the combination of Andrew Luck, Le’Veon Bell and Ty Hilton.
  6. 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.

    If I’m the Steelers I wouldn’t trade Bell in the conference.

    Seems Bree may be following in Amerson’s Footsteps
  9. Bell contract 2018

    Well yes, so he could be traded. He could sign the tender and then the Steelers could trade for less than two firsts, that’s my point. Not saying it will happen, but the Steelers should consider it and talk to Bell and his agent if they’d want to do that.

    Davey, out managed again...
  11. Bell contract 2018

    I’m pretty sure teams could agree to different terms if it’s a trade. If Bell signs with someone else and then the Steelers don’t match, then the Steelers get back two firsts in return, but that’s a different situation than a trade. I don’t think a team has signed a franchised player to a contract after their original team slapped the franchise tag on them since Sean Gilbert and the Redskins/Panthers 20 plus years ago. The Redskins got two Panthers first round picks because they signed Gilbert after the Redskins franchised him.
  12. Bell contract 2018

    You’re missing the point. The point isn’t if they might draft a bust with the pick/picks they get back or that they could win when/if Bell plays this year, it’s that trading him now is better than only getting a 3rd round comp pick back in return.

    Marino fell because of rumors he was a weed smoker and major party guy at Pitt. He fell all the way to the Dolphins. If had fallen to the Redskins, the Redskins were going to take Marino over Darrell Green.
  14. I never said there was a lesser hall of fame. I said they don’t get the same recognition or accolades and they’re the best of the rest... aka the best of those who don’t get in the hall of fame on the first tries just after they’ve retired.

    You’re right, my bad. I believe it. I’ve never believed the Nats are as good as most fans think. They usually skate by with 90 plus wins in one of the worst divisions in baseball and then lose in the NLDS. They’re overrated, and always have been.
