  1. Two weeks to the draft. Obviously, BPA at 19 won't be known until you get to 19, but speculating, it feels like many talking heads are now looking at one of these two: Christian Darrisaw, OL, Virginia Tech https://www.nfl.com/prospects/christian-darrisaw/32004441-5268-2260-1da4-71998bd16533 Could be immediate starter and future left tackle anchor. Our OL kind of overperformed toward the end of last year but I think we still desparately need to upgrade, particularly with Moses getting older and Sherf possibly signing elsewhere next year. I keep hearing we need LB and that's true, b
  2. You don't win football games in March and April, so I take it with a monster grain of salt, but still it's a neat headline: https://twitter.com/PFF/status/1372387573310586881 Per @KevinColePFF's Improvement Index, the Washington Football Team is the NFL's most improved team in Free Agency FULL in-depth look here http://bit.ly/3r2aUGc What is equally encouraging: Fitzpatrick, Jackson, and Samuel all signed to reasonable contracts, that will not "break the bank." Things are being done differently.
  3. Also, I think Nittny made this point, and I've heard this point made on the Al Galdi Podcast (excellent by the way), that Ron is slowly cleaning house of all the old guard loyal to Bruce. This is not just coaches but other front office guys. I think by surrounding himself with guys who are loyal to him (not Dan), Rivera may be somewhat insulating himself from Dan's influence on personnel. Back in the day, Bruce and Danny could basically decide to draft players or make trades by outvoting Jay. Now, Rivera controls the Marty's. Dan would have to come in and outvote ALL of them...that's
  4. Notice the lack of “leaks” before these FA signings?
  5. We are gonna have some speed at WR and someone not afraid to throw it deep... samuel also one of those flex guys who can play multiple roles that Rivera likes. I like the signing
  6. Great signing. Something like this really needed to be done with Darby leaving. I think Jackson is generally well regarded and is still quite young. Nice job by Ron and the Marty’s here...

  7. Seriously. Regardless of their final team record, draft McLaurin in fantasy. He put up decent stats with Smith / Haskins; imagine what he can do with a guy who can actually throw it down field was some accuracy...
  8. I would imagine fitz can stretch the field more than Alex could, so perhaps his yards and TDs will get a boost. And fitz way more accurate than haskins. So I’d say on balance it’s a bump but how much we’ll see...
  9. The other big news today is Darby signing with the Broncos. Apparently Rivera didn’t want to pay this guy due to injury history? Either way, it creates a new hole to fill. We got Fuller and Moreland as starters I guess. Moreau is an UFA but maybe we can resign him? Not sure abiut the quality behind this. Add CB to the shopping list. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.nbcsports.com/washington/football-team/taking-look-cornerback-market-after-washington-loses-ronald-darby%3famp
  10. I like the signing. 1 year, 10 million dollars. He could serve as bridge starter or even vet backup if Allen or heinicke take the job. But gives us another option at QB for this year. Here’s hoping they still draft a guy to groom him long term. But for now, I like it
  11. I find myself frequently agreeing with Theisman, and I do so again with this analysis. Watson is great but I would not give up Chase Young for him. Keep it mind it would be Chase Young plus several number ones plus another defensive starter. Just no. Darnold -- people are acting like he is such a catch and that the Jets may even be asking for a second round pick PLUS for him. This is all predicated on the idea that Darnold is actually great and it's just the Jets that are dragging him down. You know, just like Josh Rosen was really great and we would see that when he left Arizona
  12. Come on, man, make this happen: Heineken has 'no plans' to partner with Taylor Heinicke at this time https://www.yahoo.com/sports/heineken-no-plans-partner-taylor-153322120.html
  13. Jay Gruden is talking a lot of smack lately I notice. Snyder is a train wreck to be sure. But not sure how I feel about Jay spilling so many secrets publically in the last few days. There is this piece, and then there was some story trashing Garcon and Jackson for being the ones to blame when Cousins took a knee before the half vs. Philly and blew the chance for a field goal. So he's not just throwing Snyder under the bus but also trashing former players. Not a good look for Coach Jay...not a big fan of that guy...from what I hear, he also has some skeletons and maybe shouldn't be talking
  14. Hearing lots of talk about trading for Mariota lately. Pros: good athlete and measurables, High potential, starter experience, Relatively young, cheap in terms of parting with draft assets Con: is contract good if he doesn’t become starter? Is he a Clearly better option than Allen/heinicke? Thoughts?
  15. There are lots of "culture intangiables" here. I read an article where the other players on team really respect Heinicke for not only showing grit, but coming in and being very prepared with a high work ethic (ironically, same as Smith but not the same as Haskins). The fact that the team is placing faith in a guy like that and rewarding a guy like that is in fact part of "building a culture" based on a meritocracy. There is a trend. You elevate Cameron Kurl instead of signing the flashy free agent. You give Logan Thomas a chance instead of breaking bank on a big name TE. I'm not saying He
