      It's that time of the year again - time to man (or woman) up and put your game prognostication skills to the test. BGO runs the most competitive NFL Pickem contest you'll find anywhere. Last season, it was Om who came out on top and won our grand prize. Maybe this year, you'll be crowned champion? This year's top prize will be an official NFL jersey customized to your choosing. Prizes will also be awarded to our 2nd through 4th place finishers.

      Head Coach Jay Gruden

      On his response to OL Trent Williams not wanting to play for the Washington Redskins:
      "I really don’t have one [a response]. I am just trying to focus on the guys who are here right now. I know Trent knows how much we need him and want him back. That is the only thing I can do from here. As far as what happened between him and the doctors, that is between him and the doctors and hopefully we get that cleared up soon."

      On if he has had any indication that Williams does not want to be on the team anymore:
      "I haven’t spoken to him in that context, no."

      On if he expects Williams to return:
      "I sure hope so, yeah."

      On when he was informed that Williams was not attending veteran minicamp:
      "Well – probably – a couple of days ago."

      On if that was the first time the issues were brought to his attention:
      "To that extent, yes, yes."

      On if he can share details on Williams' scalp:

      On the absence of OL Trent Williams:
      "We have been talking to Trent a little bit here and there. He is not here [at practice], you are right. As far as holding out for whatever reasons, that is between Trent and Eric [Schaffer] and Bruce [Allen]. Hopefully, we’ll get it all situated soon and get him back here."

      On the disadvantages with Williams absent:
      "Well he is the best tackle in pro football, so. He’s a great player for us, a great leader. We would love to have him here without a doubt. I know his teammates support him and we support him without a doubt, but hopefully we get it situated where he comes back."

      On how QB Dwayne Haskins facing the defense with veterans participating:
      "He did [well]. He is learning every day. He’s doing an excellent job, as far as just getting familiar with the offense and terminology. He has a great skill set. He can really spin it, without a doubt, but now it is ...

      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 ...

      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 ...

      Head Coach Jay Gruden

      On if he feels like Day 1 of the NFL Draft went well for the Washington Redskins:
      "Yeah, it went really well. We are excited obviously to get Dwayne. A quarterback that has performed like he has in one year of playing football is quite astonishing really. He has all of the tools to be an exceptional quarterback in pro football. It’s just a matter of getting him in the building, get him taught up on the offense and just going slow with him. We’re excited to have him. Great kid, great player and very smart. I had a chance to talk to him at the Combine. We flew him in here, had a long talk with him, went to dinner with him and spent a lot of time with him. We feel really good about where he is as a player and where he’s going. Obviously, Montez there was a lot of talk there at 15. Losing Preston Smith we had to adjust the outside linebacker and pass rusher situation. We talked about taking Sweat at 15 and to get him in the first round we obviously had to give up a little bit, but we thought it was a no brainer. "

      On the decision-making process to get Montez Sweat:
      "I think when you watched him as a player throughout his college ...
