  1. All-Inclusive OTA's Thread

    I like the section on our QBs. Gonna need to see that more often going forward
  2. Our Offense got a lot faster this off season.

    Let me also piggyback on my post and say that for quite a lot of us curmudgeons, we will be rooting for EVERY player to do well on the team when it comes game time. We will be critical and heap praise on them when we need to, but when the action is happening, I don't care who is throwing the ball to get us a TD. I just want the TD

    Oh, that happened to me quite a few times when I first joined, didn't it @Woz??? SuperSkinFan (RIP) and I used to go round and round.
  4. Our Offense got a lot faster this off season.

    As the founding member of the Redskins Curmudgeon Society, I tend to agree with you here E. I do think we've gotten faster as a whole on the offensive side of the ball. Also, as you know, until TC starts and Week 1 starts, we've got nothing else better to do than be critical of every move the team makes. Its kinda in our DNA at this point given that Snyderskins have given us 20 years of mediocre-to-poor teams and same level of effort in the front office. I agree with @Woz here. Aside from the Smith trade, the team has had a good 2018 offseason with Free Agency and the draft. Not perfect, given that the LG position is a huge hole, but good.
  5. Now, I'll take a different tack here. I agree on Reed. But if he's healthy, there should be no excuse for Smith. Similarly with Guice. If our TEs learn to block, I think we can have a reasonably decent (if not downright good) running game with Guice. This will help keep defenses honest and should open up things for Alex downfield. Richardson might be that guy. He's not a Tyreek Hill. But he could be that deep threat. What all this says to me is that if Reed is healthy, Guice is as advertised and Richardson can be a deep threat, and... the defense stays healthy... ... then there's no excuse why Alex can't top last year's numbers. And no excuse why we shouldn't win 12 games. Now, I don't think we can top 9 wins. And I don't think he can do that (top last year's production). I hope we/he can. But I think he regresses to the mean this year. But with those weapons showing up like we hope, I don't want to hear any excuses from anyone about his play.
  6. I disagree. Or everyone wouldn't be using it as one measuring stick for QBs. Really trying to track with your thinking here. HOW does it shine a light on who is ready to be fair to Alex if they don't recognize it as an individual stat? Conjecture If they are propping the player up to be more than they are, its perfectly acceptable to take the opposite take on that assertion. And also call out that the sta in question is a team stat. I assume this question is for others. As I said nothing about play-action in any post in this thread (until this very sentence). My post was about W/L record being a team stat. Its usually lots of fun. But if your version of fun is relexively genuflecting towards any specific player (including Alex) and people not honestly discussing their take on the team and its players, then yes, I think it might not be a fun season for you.
  7. Oh, I wouldnt vote for him for the HOF at all. And youre completely correct about the SB wins.
  8. Which is also why your evaluation of any player shouldn't strictly focus on stats.
  9. Snark aside, you are kinda correct. While I can definitely make a case for who is the better QB in terms of their play on the field, I don't use W/L as a measuring stick for any individual player. A QB could play very well and have their defense or Special Teams crap the bed and the result is a loss. Redskins/Cowboys game in November 2016 comes to mind. More recently, the Saints/Vikings playoff game. Brees took a loss there from people who judge base on W/L records. But if Lattimore wraps up Diggs, he gets the W. Conversely, Case didnt look very good at all in the game and gets the win. Is Case a better QB than Brees because of the W? Was he the best QB on the field that day? No, to both questions. QBs dont rush the passer. Or cover a receiver. Or kick FGs. Or any of the other things the QB isnt responsible for... So no. I evaluate the QBs via other metrics/means. W/L record is a team stat. So for me, I only judge HC, GM amd owners by it.
  10. Yup. I seriously cannot understand why more people do not understand this. Since wins are a team stat, the only ones judged by it should be those who have purview over the entire team. As such, only: Head Coaches GMs Owners ...should be judged by wins.
  11. 2018 Free Agency

    To be fair, some of us predicted these would be lousy trades when we made them.

  14. All-Inclusive OTA's Thread

    Sean Welsh retired from football. Had hopes he could help solve the LG position.
