  1. Early sneak peek at the 2020 draft.

    I think we're in perfect position to trade down. I'm sure that some QB, whether Burrows or Tagavoila, will go number 1, and the other should also go top 4. And, while Chase Young seems incredibly promising, that's hardly a position of need for us, so he's more valuable to some other team than to...
  2. Skins Quotes 6/6/19: Jay Gruden

    I know you're mostly joking here, but what he meant (and he didn't misspeak, and it's not w/o a wee bit of interest) was: "Shaun Dion Hamilton--as with Samaje Perine, whom I mentioned earlier--also looks extremely impressive/improved/fast, in a noteworthy way."
  3. Burner’s Burning Questions: News, Grades, Evals, Questions, Regular Season, 2018

    Re: Burner's Burning Questions: News, Grades, Evals, Questions, Regular Season, 2018 I think part of Lanier vs. Brantley (beyond Lanier's injury and problematic run-defending) is that we have such a solid DL at this point that we can afford to go high-risk, high-reward with Brantley. If...
  4. A "Reasonable" Contract for Kirk Cousins ...

    As Shi no Tenshi suggests, I think the exclusive tag was the right choice. The non-exclusive tag would have allowed Kirk to negotiate with anyone he wanted and thereby gather proof that he "deserves" a larger contract with the Skins to resign long-term. And I think it's very unlikely a team...
  5. Bruce, Scot and the Front Office.

    I think Scot's sporting Skins gear, along with Bruce's comments at the Combine talking about what a great guy Scot is, shows that there's no acrimony between Scot and the team. I think his "family issues" pretty plainly encompass some personal difficulties--and little reason to believe it...

  7. Bleacher Report: Scot McCloughan Q&A: The Philosphy And Tools Of a Successful NFL GM

    That makes me think that at 21 (unless he's bluffing, but I don't think so, at least not in a deep sense) a) we're not going for Nkemdiche or Spence or some other boom/buster with iffy intangibles (not so much in an off-the-field sense, but in terms of effort/dedication on the field), and b)...
  8. John Keim: Redskins 2014 Offensive Line Rankings, Stats And Breakdown

    A) Boone, I appreciate your keeping our focus (and our disparaging comments) directed at the arguments made, not on the person making the argument. B) It is a perfectly reasonable and respectable argument to contend: here's some expert information suggesting, counterintuitively to some, and...
  9. Should BGO Stop Promoting Washington Post Redskins Content?

    I agree about the bizarrely negative (off-the-field, and at times on-the-field) coverage (bracketing the name issue, which is different, whatever one's position). But I'd be in favor of not having a blanket boycott of on-the-field coverage. If a story has merit/is objective, why not link to it...
  10. Draft Is Wide Open

    I agree w/ the general consensus, except: 1) We might draft a WR at 34--this is an extraordinary WR class, with a bunch of guys (including big guys, e.g., Benjamin) that just might fall to 34; 2) There is no G who, if available at 34, would be a steal, or even a particularly good deal; this is...
  11. [PSA] Redskins fans with no directv/Sunday ticket - How to watch the games

    I did this two years ago (they lowered the price considerably maybe 6 games into the season that year) and it was always available midnight on Sunday (assuming the Sunday night game was over by then). Don't know if that's changed.
  12. Kyle Shanahan Possibly Facing Suspension

    1) They did give Kyle a 20-yard penalty (or, more accurately, pushed us back 25 yards for 20 yards' worth of penalties). We were at the Bengals' 34, then with Sleepy's false start and Kyle's unsportsmanlike conduct, they put us back at our own 41 rather than our 46. Those five yards could have...
  13. Joint Statement From Redskins/Cowboys

    Just read Burbank's decision. As BB suggested/I inferred, http://www.bgobsession.com/showpost.php?p=125211&postcount=78, Burbank essentially holds that the March 27 vote at the league meeting retroactively ratified the salary cap penalty letter b/w the league and NFLPA and clarified/turned it...
  14. Salary Cap Hearing Set For May

    J.I. Halsell is a lawyer, also. And he really knows his salary cap stuff. (And used to do salary cap stuff for the Skins, before becoming an agent.) That said, when he talks about legal isues like the salary cap arbitration, he really doesn't know what he's talking about, either in terms of the...
  15. Salary Cap Hearing Set For May

    The air of finality comes from the implications of a post from someone who has a source, though the someone is wisely being quite discreet and close-lipped. Maybe that someone misinterpreted "the motion to dismiss is going forward," thinking it meant that the arbitrator had suggested that the...
  16. Salary Cap Hearing Set For May

    Sounds like BB is suggesting there's reason to believe that Burbank will find that the agreement b/w the Executive Committee and the NFLPA on the salary cap reduction supersedes (or perhaps is incorporated into) the 2011 CBA such that no challenge under the CBA can be brought. That result would...
  17. PFT: Redskins, Cowboys could go “nuclear” over cap mess

    Well, there are multiple potential legal challenges: 1) our Article 14, section 3 claim under the 2011 CBA that the cap hit was improper (our current arbitration filing); 2) a potential arbitration claim arguing that the other teams and the NFL, in imposing the cap hit, engaged in...
  18. PFT: Redskins, Cowboys could go “nuclear” over cap mess

    Yes, that's basically my impression--but that's only from reading press (mostly involving rumors) about how it happened, not from any particular legal knowledge. Also, minor point--there is a further step before it gets to court--under the CBA, there is an Appeals Panel that has (somewhat...
  19. PFT: Redskins, Cowboys could go “nuclear” over cap mess

    (Further thoughts, cross-posted on ES http://www.extremeskins.com/showthread.php?363869-Espn-NFCEast-Blog-Giant-s-Mara-quot-Skins-got-off-lucky-quot-OP-Updated-w-follow-up-links&p=8919271&viewfull=1#post8919271) I've been through the NFL Constitution and Bylaws, and I don't see anywhere that...
  20. PFT: Redskins, Cowboys could go “nuclear” over cap mess

    It may well be that the Skins filed now to give the other owners time to rethink what they're doing before the arbitration starts, while they all are gathered together. As a practical matter, I'd think there's more than 72 hours for the NFL to act, because the arbitration, I'd think, is very...
