      Burner’s Burning Questions: Free Agency, Mocks, Camps, OTAs, Roster Predictions, 2019

      Greetings from BBQ to everyone here at BGO. We hope your week is going well. Hello to everyone on social media. We’d love to have you as a member here and become a part of the family.

      The Redskins kicked off the 2019 season on Sunday with an impressive first half, but the second half was an abysmal failure as they lost the season opener to the Eagles. Today we assign grades and make a prediction for the next game. Also, we have a bonus for you this week – a 2020 mock draft!

      BBQ would love to see your grades and evaluations each week if you are so inclined to do so. Too, your predictions for the next game are always appreciated. And, if you’re wanting to do more, feel free to put up 2020 a mock draft. There are no restrictions here. Go for it!

      Upcoming Dates:
      - Days until the Cowboys game: 4
      - Days until the Giants game: 18
      - Days until the Vikings game: 43
      - Days until the bye: 60

      Week One: Grades and Evaluations

      It would be easy to place a lot of blame on the offense after the second half debacle, but we can’t ignore that they were able to dominate in the first half. Putting up 27 points against one of the best defenses in the league is solid and it was done on their home turf. Case Keenum threw for 380 yards and was nothing short of spectacular. The rushing offense was nonexistent and this lowers the grade. A missed opportunity in the second half would’ve led to another easy touchdown for Terry McLaurin, but that play really doesn’t lower the grade. A loss hurts and while we can’t grade on potential, BBQ does see some positives to build on for this season.
      BBQ Grade: B-

      Much like the offense, this story is about what happened in the first half and what occurred after halftime. The defense simply collapsed in the second half and seemed helpless against the Eagles onslaught. Poor performances from Quinton Dunbar, Montez Sweat, Jimmy Moreland, Ryan Kerrigan, Josh Norman, and Jon Bostic plagued the defense as the game progressed. This defense is considered to be a solid unit, but they were far from it in the second half.
      BBQ Grade: D

      Special Teams:
      Tress Way continues to amaze and had a fantastic game. Dustin Hopkins was perfect. The kick and punt returns could’ve been better, but there were no glaring mistakes.
      BBQ Grade: A

      If BBQ was able to grade on the first half alone, the report card would be glowing with high marks. Unfortunately for the Redskins coaching staff, the grades must incorporate the entire game. In the latter part of the third quarter when the Eagles took a 21-20 lead, the defense desperately needed a rest, but the offense ran three straight passing plays – all of them incompletions. The defense was quickly back on the field and the game was basically decided at that juncture. The defense made no adjustments in the second half as the Eagles dominated. A late Redskins touchdown made the score respectable, but it really had no impact at the end.
      BBQ Grade: D

      Week Two Prediction: Cowboys at Redskins
      The rivalry resumes. Which Redskins team will show up on Sunday? The first half Redskins? The second half Redskins? The Cowboys looked good last Sunday, but it was against a hapless Giants team. Can the Redskins stop the Cowboys offense? If the Cowboys score early and often, it could get ugly for the Burgundy And Gold quickly. BBQ is not too hopeful, but it could be closer than some may think.
