I hope that Sua Cravens retires. He let the team down and his teammates down too with his actions and statements. It would be in his best interest. I see him doing this again 1/2 way through the season. Why prolong the inevitable.
DF played well today but had lapses. If and once they put it all together they can be solid. It all rest on the players and coaches. I think we have the personnel on DF to be.
The OL came out swinging today. The run game was outstanding, first and foremost. Their pass blocking was above average. As Carnack mentioned we do miss Garcon and Jackson but with a new WR core it will take time. IF Doctson can get/stay healthy it will help. Crowder is such a big part of our passing game. When Pryor comes up to speed we will be good. KC is Still erratic. No INTs but he's got a LONG ways to go and doesn't deserve no where near the money he wants. I love KC and was expecting more from him but he will really have to produce consistently and get better each and every game to get paid what he wants.
Actually stink, Mike Shanahan hired McVay and Jay promoted him to OC basically right from the womb of being a TE Coach.
Still your point is the same: Jay was (and is) McVay's mentor and there is a LOT to love about Jay.
I have said it before and I will say it again, Jay Gruden is one of the very few Head Coaches in this league that can operate under this Ownership. He is a very talented offensive mind and frankly a Players coach. We are damn lucky to have him.
This team has yet to resolve its talent base and when that happens, things will begin to begin to stabilize around here. That's not on Jay alone, but it sure impacts his ability to consistently produce a winning team.
I hope Doug Williams fares better than Scott McCloughan did in his role as defacto GM because we really need a steady, talented eye in Player acquisition.
Do you believe that Williams will have final say over the draft picks selected in the upcoming draft(s)? I sure don't. I think Bruce Allen does. Just my opinion. Thoughts?
This cannot even be remotely possible. Were you born 2 years ago?
No---I have been following the Skins since Vince Lombardi came over from the Packers---that is some 48+ years as a fan---the last twenty plus years have been plagued by poor management by the FO, poor selection of HCs (starting with Norval) with exception of Gibbs II (2 playoff births in his last three seasons---not bad in hindsight)---an owner who means well but runs the team like a fan instead of an astute NFL owner(Bruce Allen has no business being in charge of personnel decisions and I am sorry but Doug Williams does not inspire my confidence--who knows with time he might) and then there were of course the incompetency of the "Vinny years"---and who can forget Jim Zorn's two memorable years as HC--I could go on and on---and of course we now have a HC whose overall record is Still under .500---sorry hard to get excited about 8-7-1 seasons with no post-season berth---and the 9-7 record that won the NFL East two season ago was largely due to the fact that all the other teams in the NFL East stunk it up that year---that is not going to happen this season--Jay Gruden needs a transfusion of his brother's John Gruden's fire and spirit---then of course we have first round pick WR who may never see the field for more than one or two games at a time, a second round safety who is not sure if he is up to playing tackle football anymore and on and on we go---Look I have been a committed fan of the Redskins for many years--THAT WILL NOT CHANGE---but I am one frustrated fan--who is sick and tired of hearing wait till the off-season, wait until the draft, wait until TC, etc.---if you think that two season with barely winning records changes everything well IMO you will probably be mistaken (h%ll, no one knows what is going to happen this season--maybe the Skins go 14-2 and win the Super Bowl---maybe pigs will start to fly too.
Doug Williams or anyone for that matter that is in name GM or acting GM is a puppet as long as Bruce Allen is here.
I was one of those people but CT has progressed nicely after being able to stay on the field.
I was too, until l saw him at training camp two years back. He was the best RB on the practice field that day by a large margin (Still had Almo at that point). It was just the Injuries that kept many of us from seeing the player we kept hearing the coaches talk about. If he had Kelley's or Matt Jones' size, he would be the team's bell cow and one of the best RB in the league.
I could see that. Read a lot about him coming out of FL St. and how injury dropped him into the 4th/5th? round where we selected him. Glad things are paying off the him and the team now.
BIG IF but IF Doctson can open things up and stay healthy it will lead to Pryor having a big season. Both Pryor and Doctson can/will feed off each other's play, if it's positive from each player. Kind of a duh statement but true non the less, Yes?
Ben StandigVerified account @benstandig Would he feel any compunction about telling tales on [the Redskins]...? “They released me,” Sudfeld said.
Kind of what I thought. The kid is feeling a little butt hurt over the insult of being released. The Skins tried to sign him to the PS, but he took his injured pride to the team where he could try to inflict a little revenge.
Or how is this for the conspiracy theorists....What if this is all an act and the Skins had an arrangement with Sudz that he would be released so that he could sign with the Fecals and give them misinformation. Then once the Fecals cut him after his services were no longer needed, the Skins would pick him back up.
I don't THINK that but I do think that once he's cut from Philly, Gruden tries to sign him to the Skins PS. Also of note and you probably already know, the Skins put in a waiver claim for Brandon Allen but the Rams did too and were awarded him. I think Gruden should send our 7th round pick back to them and get Allen on our 53 man roster and I would go as far as sending a 6th rounder if that's what it would take to get Allen. Yes, I think he can be that good IF given a chance as a starter.
