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

      Greetings from BBQ to everyone in BGO land and guests from social media – we hope you become a member here.

      Free Agency is not over and there are occasional rumblings here and there. This is our latest free agency update for the off-season and the 2019 season continues to inch closer.

      As free agency continues to a certain degree, things will become ...

      As BGO approaches it's first decade (!) of existence, thing are heating up.

      Confronted with an increasingly beleaguered and hostile fan base, the Redskins just threw a Hail Mary, selecting an uber-talented young QB in the 2019 NFL draft. The brain trust in Ashburn is being hailed for one of the best overall drafts in recent memory. The current coaching staff is reportedly coaching for their lives, decidedly on the hot seat.

      And BGO is at a turning point.

      Do you love this place?

      Do you pine for all things BGO?

      Do you agree not only that the Redskins future holds more promise than in years, but also that Om, Henry, Miles Monroe, Burgundy Burner, and Neophyte are dead sexy and amongst the smartest savviest Redskins prognosticators and assessors ...

      Pete Hailey over on NBC Sports Washington broke the numbers down for you.

      Here's what he said:

      "23 passers have gone in the top half of the first round of the past 10 NFL drafts, like Haskins did this past April. But when did those franchises first turn to their prized, young prospects?

      Here are the key takeaways from looking at that group's experiences and comparing when each got their chance to initially take over under center full-time (for ...

      Greetings from BBQ to everyone in BGO land and guests from social media – we hope you become a member here.

      The ride to the 2019 NFL draft is over and it has been quite the experience. Ten new draftees will now begin their NFL careers as they put on the burgundy and gold. All of them will not only try to make the final roster of fifty-three, but will seek to carve ...

      Head Coach Jay Gruden
      Opening Statement:
      "It is over. How'd your mock draft do?"

      On the decision to draft RB Bryce Love coming off an injury:
      "Yes, very talented. He had 2,000 yards in his junior year. He was not on that pace, but he was still pretty darn good. Unfortunately, he had the injury, but we thought when you go by the board he was ranked up there pretty high for us and he was available and we took him. Give him time to get better, number one. Get him in the building, get his rehab going in the right path, which it already is. The type of guy that he is, team captain. I think he’ll be ready in no time."

      On his expectations of Love participating in team activities:
      "I don't know yet. We have to get him in here first. We’re obviously aware of the injury. As far as the length of time it will take for him to be 100 percent in football shape, we don't know that yet."

      On RB Derrius Guice:
      "Derrius has been awesome. This is no reflection of anybody. We just got an opportunity to draft one heck of a player with an unbelievable production at a big-time school. But, Derrius is on track to be full-go soon."

      On if Guice is expected to be ready before training camp:
      "Yeah, I think so."

      On plans to address the free safety position:
      "Yeah, we still have Montae [Nicholson]. We obviously drafted [Troy] Apke last year, which is a pretty good option. We have [Jeremy] Reaves here in the building. He's doing some good things, did some great things at the end of the year on practice squad. And Deshazor [Everett] and Landon [Collins]. So, we have five pretty good safeties. We'll address it probably as the college free agents go. We'll probably get a couple there."

      On the status of S Montae ...

      Head Coach Jay Gruden

      On what the plan was heading into Day 2:
      “Well, we were obviously looking to add to our receiving core a little bit, and he gives us a nice blend with a combination of speed and toughness. He’s actually our special teams number one player on the board as far as what he does in that unit – covering kicks, flyer on punt. But really, it’s all about his receiving skills. He averaged about twenty yards a catch last year. He’s a very explosive player. He can run. I think he can do a little bit of everything – inside, outside. But he gives us a dimension, another added dimension with that great speed and toughness that he brings to the table in the run game and the vertical pass game.”

      On where he sees WR Terry McLaurin fitting in best whether it is inside or ...
