I realize we were light in the pants but you said they were midgets, and they're not midgets they're normal height or taller than most OL but our OL just aren't big fatties.
1 month, 3 weeks ago on How the Hiring of Jay Gruden Affects the Draft
Watch the tape, Chester was one of the worst guards in the NFL. He really regressed this year and was often responsible for the big hits Griffin took while standing in the pocket.
He's also our second highest paid offensive lineman behind Trent, and because of that he's held to a higher standard than Monty, Kory L and Polumbus in my eyes.
If we're paying a guard 4.3 million a year, he should be playing like a pro bowler - not one of the worst guards in the NFL.
We can cut him with no dead money and go out and sign us a younger guard like Jon Asomough, Geoff Schwartz or most likely Mike Pollak from Cincinnati.
I'm not sure who the midgets are, but all the OL Shanahan drafted or signed in his 4 years are 6'2 to 6'5, so I hardly call them midgets and Polumbus is 6'8. I had no clue that midgets were 6'8 lol!
Also, don't forget that if Jordan Reed had stayed healthy and started all 16 games or even just 14, he likely would have caught 80-90 balls, 900-1000 yds and 5+ tds
Just for Giggles...
If the Hankerson had stayed healthy, and Morgan had been played by the Shanahan's the Redskins would have had 5 receivers over 40 receptions. Just saying.
I fully expect us to sign a FA wr and draft a bigger stronger guy to develop: Kelvin Benjamin, Brandon Coleman, Donte Moncrief and L'Damian Washington are probably on their radar screen.
I fully expect us to get a few new OL, 4 new starters though? I'm not so sure.
I hope they can sign Andre Collins and Mike Pollak to be their new starting right side. I think the Redskins current OL (except for Chester) are kept as reserves and to compete for reserve roster spots.
LeRibeus actually may fit Grudens scheme better than he did Shanahans. I'd look out for him as a surprise starter at RG.
We could also draft an OL or two.
It will be interesting as we also could use an upgrade or 2 along the DL, a new ILB to replace Fletch, a new starting Cb or nickel cb depending on if they re-sign Hall and if they think Amerson can start, and I think try need a new starting FS
He hasn't been tied to any of the Redskins personnel moves. I'd say that's quite different than when Vinny was here.
Anyone that doesn't think Mike Shanahan was running the entire football operations show doesn't understand how egotistical Shanahan was and they're just blind haters who want to hate Dan Snyder for no reason.
He's done exactly what we've wanted him to do for 14 years.
Have a GM who has control and final say, then have experienced and respected personnel guys below him.
2 months, 1 week ago on A Brief (Ish) Rant: Redskins Owner Dan Snyder Gives Fans Front Office They Want; Fans and Media Complain Anyway
"Apparently" great assumption
This is exactly what I thought as well when I was listening to the junkies on 106.7 the Fan this morning.
They were complaining and complaining about the Skins not bringing in a GM from outside the organization or whatever.
Bruce Allen has been executive of the year and been a great front office guy for nearly two decades and been around NFL football since he was with his dad on the sidelines in the 70s.
Campbell has worked on our drafts for a long time and has worked with our scouts to determine who to select, even those selections Mike Shanahan selected.
Morocco Brown has interviewed for GM jobs and other jobs around the league. He's been a known rising star in our front office for years and I heard he was instrumental in determining Pierre Garçon was the WR we should sign and give a big contract to in 2012. Last time I checked, most questioned it, I know I did and all Garçon did was break the season receptions record for the franchise in a year when our passing game was average.
I'm glad at what's taken place. We have a true front office. We have three guys who I believe will work well together. We also have an experienced front office person who's helped build championship team who will have the final say, instead of a head coach who's had a poor track record with personnel decisions ever since he started controlling that for the broncos in 99.
So, within a year we are now doubting "if" RG3 has the "will" to be the very best Qb he can be?
He doesn't need pushed. The man pushes himself and is harder on himself than anyone else could ever be.
And I think last weeks game, and last years game vs the browns proves the fact that RG3 is a good teammate and wants us to win and he wants to learn. He was excited for Kirk and the guys and going over pictures and talking to Kyle on the bench.
2 months, 3 weeks ago on Hold your breath and grip your armrests as Kirk Cousins starts for the Redskins
I hope Kirk plays well enough that we can trade him for a 2nd round pick.
As far as him leading the team to victories - I don't see it!
The problem with the Redskins is more the talent infront of RG3, the deactivating of Fred Davis, the injuries to Reed and Hank and how poorly the special teams and defense has played.
Inserting Kirk Cousins is not going to make the team win, but I do hope Kirk plays well, eventhough I'm in RG3's camp. I know and want Rg3 to be the future of this franchise.
Yet Norv went on to be better than any other coach we hired since him. He went to the playoffs a lot in SD and even won a few games, once getting to the afccg

That's because he's 24-37 now! ;)
I have to say I'm concerned. Not only does Washington struggle to make the playoffs after slow starts, but they also struggle to historically make the playoffs in back to back years.
Rg3 is going to have to break a lot of trends again, if he wants to lead this team to the playoffs again.

Good point on both accounts. my bad, brain fart on my part.
I forgot about the 91 Detroit game as I was only 12

6 months ago on Four reasons why Pat White is on the Redskins roster
Monday night 2010. Mcnabb, Trent Williams' and the Shanahans' debut in a big win over Dallas. I thought for sure after that game we were going to have a strong season and bright future with the Shanahan's and McNabb. It's still Unbelievable to me how it all unraveled so quickly the second half of that season
That's fine, but we all know Cousins isn't getting traded now, but for hits on your website, a story like this makes sense. Carry on
The team would take any young prospect that could make the team or late round/conditional pick for Pat White as anything they would get for him or someone likeRoyster would be gravy
6 months, 1 week ago on Pat White's presence on the Redskins roster could mean Kirk Cousins is a goner.
If we trade Cousins in March for a late 1st or 2nd round pick, it would allow us an extra high pick to spend on a RT, ILB, DB, WR or DE for our future.
Rambo, Amerson,Jarvis Jenkins and Hankerson are going to have play extra special for me not to believe that this team shouldn't consider drafting another FS, CB, DE or WR or develop I round 2 and 3. Then, you have the ILB which needs a real upgrade in depth and Fletcher will probably retire.
I think the Redskins need Cousins this year because of the question marks surrounding RG3 currently but they should feel comfortable moving Kirk next March if Griffin is healthy all year.
Trade Cousins after this season. THey need him now. No team will trade for Grossman with his age and inconsistencies but Pat white may bring us back a conditional late round pick because his age, read option abilities and skills that can still be developed as a passer
Thompson will make the team because of his return game. I really can't say that Keiland or Royster will make it, but if their coming down to the best 53 and need someone for special teams, I'd think either one of them would make it over some other other players.
6 months, 2 weeks ago on Washington Redskins 53-Man Roster Projection; Who Makes It and Who Doesn’t?
Our RBs are better special teams players than Lance Lewis. Also, lance Lewis is likely to clear waivers to be out on the practice squad should he be cut. Thompson would be a risky cut and if we cut Keiland Williams, he can't be put on the practice squad
