    Random Redskins Thoughts

    Win - I noted on Twitter yesterday that I thought Rivera’s tone felt different in his latest comments - that he’d gone from ‘Haskins is the presumed starter’ to ‘Kyle Allen may start’ so I understand your concern. I think Rivera IS applying some pressure to Haskins to see how he responds. Not...

    Coronavirus - COVID19

    I know you guys want to talk about this - but the truth is the thread is being steered into a discussion about the rights of the state vs individual liberties which is at its core a political convo. I think we all understand that. And while it’s been relatively civil, experience says it won’t...

    How has Rivera taken ‘shots’ or ‘dissed Haskins Win? We had to have a backup and he got one. He’s said Haskins would have to win the job but that’s what good coaches do until someone has proven themselves. He’s been mostly complimentary of Haskins from everything I’ve read. I am surprised by his...

    Coronavirus - COVID19

    I regret commenting on the religious aspect, because I am opening a can of worms there and myself getting into topics that we have said for years we prefer not discussed here. I am commenting as a healthcare provider however - not in terms of religious or political beliefs. What is going on...

    Coronavirus - COVID19

    Let’s leave the politics out of it. It’s patently stupid irresponsible, and arguably criminal, to gather in large numbers for any reason right now. And I don’t think it’s just evangelicals bucking common sense.

    Coronavirus - COVID19

    Lots of hospitalizations. Lots of unpreventable deaths. Lots of trauma, loss, and grief.

    Coronavirus - COVID19

    You guys may think I’m crazy - but if I were a Governor and found out ministers were planning on holding in-person group services - you’d be under arrest. ‘Going to Church’ is not required to pursue whatever religious beliefs you have. And the whole point is that this is not just about ‘you’ and...

    Random Redskins Thoughts

    Mathematical certainty is unattainable. But I think that the Head Coach has to 100% believe he's got a guy who can take him to the Promised Land. There can be zero doubt. Anyone think Rivera has that kind of belief in Haskins? I just have this nagging feeling I can't dismiss. If you don't have...

    You're missing my point. Obviously, any serious NFL fan knows that highly sought after college QBs can bust. And little known or unheralded ones can prove to be the real deal. We all know and accept that. I'm specifically talking about QBs who are seen as 'can't miss', 'generational' QBs who...

    Coronavirus - COVID19

    Patients. No staff positive (yet - to our knowledge - but probably inevitable). And yes - there have been deaths. NC (so far) has mirrored Virginia, currently around 3500 known positive cases with less than 100 deaths. I think one of the flaws in modeling may turn out to be the extrapolation of...

    Random Redskins Thoughts

    I generally agree. But there are also certain players (Andrew Luck, Peyton Manning, etc...) whose skills and leadership abilities are so well documented that they are almost certain to be impact players at the NFL level. I believe Tua is that level of player. Yes - there are no guarantees. But...

    Burner's Burning Questions: Free Agency, Mocks, Camps, OTAs, Roster Predictions, 2020

    We were lucky Penn’s health held up last year. He did a good job. But I don’t care about media stuff. I trust the new regime will keep the players focused and won’t let TW be a distraction. They can release him if it came to that. I guess my argument would center on who is the best option to...

    There’s a big difference between saying ‘there are no guarantees a college star will be that same player at the NFL level’ and ‘______’s college career means nothing’. It means everything - because it’s all anyone has to go on Ax. Neither Haskins nor Kyle Allen have proven a thing yet, any...

    Burner's Burning Questions: Free Agency, Mocks, Camps, OTAs, Roster Predictions, 2020

    He’s clearly not here in 2021 and he’s too young to retire. No one in their right mind in his situation is a) going to sit out or feign injury to avoid playing, or b) sandbag it once out there. He has every reason to show he’s still a great LT so that he can get a final big deal. I don’t see...

    Only issue I have with the article... ‘Even with all that said, it’s hard to imagine Allen beating out Haskins, another Maryland native in which the Redskins have already made a huge investment.’ I think that’s 100% wrong. If you read Rivera’s comments from yesterday, it’s entirely possible...

    Burner's Burning Questions: Free Agency, Mocks, Camps, OTAs, Roster Predictions, 2020

    You don’t see the obvious benefit of having a much better LT protecting the QB and run blocking than we’d otherwise have? Come on Ax... is he a pain in the ass? Yes. Is it time for the team to move on from him? Yes. But we shouldn’t give him away and if we can’t get value for him we need to use him.
