      After some BGO staff discussion, we have decided to remove posting topic restrictions here at BGO and are re-opening the Political Asylum forum.

      From day 1, we have never desired to restrict, limit, or squelch any topic of conversation our members desired to talk about beyond topics which might be deemed profane, violent, or inappropriate for a web community.

      Our decision a year or more ago to prohibit threads and posts of a political, religious, or controversial nature was made only because some members demonstrated a consistent ...

      On TE Jordan Reed:
      “We just held him out today. Nothing is wrong.”

      On T Trent Williams:
      “Trent is a little under the weather. We’ve had a couple guys with some strep throat going around, so he’s at home eating his chicken soup.”

      On WR DeSean Jackson:
      “He practiced yesterday, had a good day.”

      On if QB Kirk Cousins’ confidence is building upon what he did last year:
      “I would think so, yes. He’s obviously playing with a lot of confidence, having a lot of fun. He’s got great command of the offense, that’s the one thing that you notice. He’s got great command over the formations. He’s got great command on the snap count, and that’s something he didn’t so much have the first year I was here and even last year in this time of year. But when you get command of the little things, it makes the big things a lot easier and he’s seeing things a lot better – concepts versus different coverage – he’s doing a good job. You know, we’re all just trying to get better out here. He’s doing good.” ...

      Head Coach Jay Gruden

      On LB Su’a Cravens:

      "Yeah, there's not a lot of things that he can't do. He's a playmaker. When you're talking about defensive football nowadays, you want to get people who can do multiple things and be versatile in what they do and figure out ways to get the ball back for your offense. He's one of the top guys at his position. He's got position flex. He's a ball hawk. He's a turnover machine and he's a great player. He'd be effective on special teams obviously. He can play in the box at linebacker, there’s a thought he might be able to play some safety. Once we get him in the building, we will figure out a way to get him on the field."

      On DB Kendall Fuller and his knee:

      "A lot went into that. We feel good about his progression from his injury. We think he's going to miss rookie minicamp but there's a chance he could be back for the OTA's. Worst case scenario we think he will be back for training camp. He's too talented of a player to pass up. He can play nickel obviously. There's a big hope for him. He can play outside. He's got great, natural football instincts at the nickel or corner position. Obviously he's got great bloodlines. I think it's a great pick."

      On the value of versatility and flexibility:

      "It's very important. There are so many sub packages ...

      Free Agency, The Mock Drafts, 2016 (Continual Updates)


      Greetings from BBQ World Headquarters.

      Happy St. George’s Day to our BGO brothers and sisters in England and Canada.

      Offseason free agency is churning along at a much slower pace, but BBQ is here to keep you informed.

      New mocks are coming next week as we head into draft week.

      There has been a disturbance in the Redskins force. Or an awakening in the Redskins force. ...

      Yes. I liked that.

      The 2015 Redskins season was a gift from the Gods. In 2012, Redskins fans dreamt they’d finally hit pay dirt and found a franchise QB after decades of hapless floundering under center. If that weren’t enough to bring joy to the miserable masses, the Skins had lucked into a 6th round RB gem in Alfred Morris.

      If you’d tried to tell any of us what would transpire after that magical 2012 season, we literally would’ve thought you were crazy, hopped up on meth, or both.

      And yet, the 2012 season was a complete mirage. We had not found our franchise QB. Alfred Morris was never to have the kind of season he had in ...

      REDSKINS ANNOUNCE 2016 SCHEDULE

      LOUDOUN COUNTY, Va. – The National Football League announced its 2016 regular season schedule tonight, and the Washington Redskins will once again be in the national and international spotlight. The team’s 2016 schedule features three prime-time contests (all at home) in addition to the franchise’s regular season London debut against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 8 and a Thanksgiving date with the division rival Dallas Cowboys in Week 12.

      The Redskins will open the 2016 season at home on ESPN’s Monday Night Football when the team faces the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sept. 12 at FedExField at 7:10 p.m. It will be the 11th time that the Redskins have kicked off the season on Monday Night Football since the program’s debut in 1970. For the second consecutive season, the Redskins will play their first two games at home, hosting the Dallas Cowboys on Sept. 18 for a 1 p.m. game at FedExField to air on FOX.

That game at MetLife Stadium on Sept. 25 is scheduled to air on FOX at 1 p.m. The following week, the Redskins will begin their first of two consecutive bouts with AFC North opponents, including a 1 p.m. home game against the Cleveland Browns on Oct. 2 on CBS and a 1 p.m. road tilt against the Baltimore Ravens on Oct. 9 on FOX.

      The Redskins will return to FedExField on Oct. 16 to seek their fourth consecutive victory against the rival Philadelphia Eagles in a 1 p.m. game on FOX. A week later on Oct. 23, FOX will air the Redskins’ game against the Detroit Lions at Ford Field at 1 p.m.
