Their devotion to his memory is understandable.

They go overboard. They act as if he was a sure fire first ballot HOFer. Ive seen them state his death set the franchise back a decade.

 

The reality was he was good, not great. Elite physical gifts but never lived up to his potential.

 

Like i said in my last post, his final season he was starting to trend in the right direction, so who knows, but his body of work overall is contrary to their hype.

So now the Skins will be going after Foles?

Possibly, but there's nothing to indicate they would be his preference.

Prediction: defensive coordinator in 2020.  Book it.

 

Hot take:  Got to love it.  First it comes out they are actively looking for a Defensive Coordinator WHILE THEY STILL HAVE THE INCUMBENT.  Then they say "no, thats not true" once everyone gets hired.  Then they pick up a big name to be a position coach.  Yeah, Greg Manusky won't be looking over his shoulder all year :lol:

Apparently Rob Ryan, who last coached in 2016, reached out to the R words, not the other way around :roll:

I would be surprised if he chose that dumpster fire organization over retirement.

Say whatever you want about the Skins, and they are a putrid organization, but Jay Gruden is a very respectable coach.

Maryland Gov. Hogan pulls out of new stadium talks with Redskins, per report

The Redskins efforts toward securing a new stadium took a hit Tuesday night when Maryland Governor Larry Hogan said that he would stop working towards that goal. 

There were discussions of a land swap between Maryland officials and the federal government that would free up a parcel of land adjacent to the MGM National Harbor casino, and Hogan was working on potentially putting a new Redskins stadium there. 

But according to The Washington Post, Hogan has pulled out of that plan. From the Post:

"Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan (R) has informed the Washington Redskins that he is withdrawing from efforts to persuade the team to build its next stadium in Oxon Cove Park, adjacent to MGM National Harbor, "at this time,” his spokeswoman confirmed Tuesday night."

Given their choice, the Redskins would elect to return to RFK Stadium in a new or rebuilt football palace. That had some momentum from the D.C. Mayor last fall, but political changes in and around the federal government could stall any movement. RFK sits on federal land, so first the city government must wrangle control of the land, which could face a number of roadblocks, and then deal with the D.C. government. 

Previous Virginia Gov. Terry McAullife was an ardent booster of a new Redskins stadium south of the Potomac, but new Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam has been much cooler about building the team a new facility. 

The Redskins lease at FedEx Field runs through 2027, and while that's still eight years away, stadiums take a long time to get built. Hogan's decision also likely means the 'Skins lose significant leverage when talking with Virginia and D.C. officials.

We as eagles fans, LOVE to splash around in the misery of the Skins.  But things can’t get too far off the rails for ‘lil Danny, or he could seriously be pressured enough to sell the team.   

At this point, we have to start actually rooting for him to get a new stadium deal done.

Joe Flacco trade puts Redskins in better position to find QB

The Washington Redskins were never going to pursue a trade for Joe Flacco. But they still might benefit from the deal involving him. The trickle-down impact will help the Redskins, in one way or another, in their pursuit of another quarterback.

It’s been stated, and must be said again, that Washington is not in the market for a high-priced quarterback -- and certainly not one they would have to acquire in a trade. The Redskins aren’t going to have Alex Smith’s $20.4 million salary-cap hit on the books and then add another quarterback in that price range. They’re not going to cut Smith, and with his future up in the air, they’re not going to tie themselves to another high-priced veteran.

But the fact that Denver did helps out the Redskins. Flacco is 34, expensive and signed through 2021, so Denver could still conceivably draft a quarterback at No. 10, groom him and move on from Flacco next year. But the Broncos no longer have to take one. It also likely puts Case Keenum on the market, too, as it’s hard to imagine Denver wanting that much cap space devoted to quarterback (unless he reworks his deal).

Of the teams picking ahead of Washington in the draft, there are now only three that are said to be in the market for a quarterback: the Giants (sixth pick), Jaguars (seventh pick) and Dolphins (13th). This assumes the Jaguars will cut Blake Bortles, the Giants want Eli Manning’s successor and the Dolphins will release Ryan Tannehill.

Other teams ahead of Washington could be tempted to draft a signal-caller: the Bengals (11th), with Andy Dalton under contract for two more years and easily cuttable after this one; or the Raiders (fourth), but only if they determine they are done with Derek Carr. But if they move on from Carr, which seems like a long shot, that means another team filled that spot with him. The same is true of Tannehill.

But the point is that one team has been eliminated from needing to find a starting quarterback. That doesn’t mean the Redskins will now draft one at No. 15, but it does mean they might be in better position to do so. When Kyler Murray entered the draft, it gave the Redskins -- and other teams -- more options. And not just from the draft.

The bigger point perhaps is that this also means the market to sign a midlevel quarterback has narrowed. If the Redskins can sign someone to a midlevel deal, they can spend their limited cap space on other positions, and then worry about a different position at 15. They will need an edge rusher if Preston Smithdeparts via free agency; this draft is rich with them. That’s not the only area they could address, but it is a notable one. They can then draft a quarterback in the later rounds -- and then, if needed, revisit a first-round guy in 2020 once they know more about Alex Smith.

If the Redskins want, say, Teddy Bridgewater -- a name on their list last offseason and a guy Washington coach Jay Gruden knows a lot about, stemming from his relationship with Minnesota Vikings coach Mike Zimmer -- then perhaps it’s now more doable. Bridgewater signed a one-year, $6 million deal with the Jets last offseason; a number around there, plus incentives, is a starting point.

The key with Bridgewater will be how many other teams want him; there’s now one less possibility. Regardless, it’s not a huge market, and the Redskins can offer him something others might not be able to: a chance to start. They still have Colt McCoy, whom coaches and teammates like, but he still has to prove he can stay healthy and then produce for a long stretch. And the rookie quarterback could well be a mid- to late-round choice.

Jacksonville might be able to offer Bridgewater a similar situation, but the Jaguars might land Nick Foles or draft a quarterback at No. 5. Bridgewater would be right back in a similar spot he was last summer with the New York Jets and then-rookie Sam Darnold.

Without making a move, the Redskins might have found themselves in a more favorable spot.

Heard the potential Rosen deal referred to by some Redskins fans as a "lifeline" that Arizona is offering to the Redskins to fix their QB situation.   The "consensus" is that the Cardinals had a terrible offensive line, terrible offensive coordinator and that it's tough to judge a QB under those types of situations.  So, I guess the Redskins are optimistic that they can make this work.  Can't say I watched a lot of Cardinals games last year, but I know he was well regarded coming out of college, so could be OK?

The biggest problem with this move is that, as usual, the Redskins are only thinking about what happens this season.  They don't really think 2-3 years ahead.  Rosen is on a 4 year deal.  You need to use this time to sign the big free agents, make aggressive moves for guys by trading picks, re-signing your own with big contracts, etc.  This is how the Rams, Eagles, and Seahawks had success.  The Redskins cannot do that at all.  They have another 3 years (I think) with Alex Smith's contract on the books.  Also, what if Alex Smith wants to play next year?  Now you've got a real mess on your hands. 

I think the Redskins would be better off long-term by embracing the suck this year.  Go with Colt McCoy as your starter.  Sign somebody crappy / cheap like Osweiler or Tyrod Taylor as the backup.  See what happens with Alex Smith, and if he can't play, then go all in for Tua next year.  But hey, the Redskins gotta Redskin, right?

If they can get him for a 2nd round pick(they have two 3rd round picks), it’s not a bad deal. And for a 3rd, it’s a steal. His salary is LOW for 3 more years and they can go with an option year after that.

i agree that their best long term bet would be to tank for Tua, but being handed a 1st round QB with a chance to be a franchise QB, for precious little, is pretty tempting.

A wise man once said, "The NFL is a TV show about Quarterbacks.”  And here is a chance to get one at a bargain price.

I’m still trying to figure out if this is a smokescreen in order to drive up the price of the #1 pick. 

Im also still trying to figure out if Tua will be a franchise QB. He has a long delivery.

Arizona is driving up the price, that is a given.  Whether they get offered enough to not use the #1 pick themselves, is the ultimate question.

What in the world is that supposed to be?  Is that a fish?

In another twist on this Redskins QB situation, I heard on the radio (link probably somewhere...) that Kyler Murray's interviews and overall football IQ were not that impressive.  Arizona may not care and may take him anyways, but if they were to pass on him, there's a chance that he'd fall to the Redskins at 15.

Nah, the fact he is NOT 5’9”, is enough for some idiotic team to take him too 10, even if he ends up with a Jeff George/Vince Young level wonderlic score.
