  1. All the excitement I had vanished after he started blaming the Shanahan regime for what were largely his own problems.
  2. The tackle was a bit much, for sure. I'm just not sure if Robinson just went WAY overboard to make the big tackle or if he tried to make an adjustment to the receiver putting his hand down to stay up and put more into it than he needed to (it certainly turns out very different if thats a bigger/heavier player he's trying to wrangle). It's one of those tackles that looks more unreasonable in slow motion where you get a false sense of deliberation than in real speed.
  3. No. An independent NFL neurologist cleared him and then uncleared him after consulting with another independent doctor. This was actually a league thing and not a Redskins thing (for once).. unless you're big on behind closed doors, jet fuel can't melt steel beams level conspiracies.

  4. The offensive line isn't great but it's looked worse with Griffin under center than it has with anyone else. A large part of the problem there is that he has not developed any sort of pocket feel. He tries to escape the edge every time he senses pressure (he's unreliable in this regard) even when that's where the pressure is and he has room to step up in the pocket. Russell Wilson is the best in the game at sensing where he has to move to but it's still a trait that's common among even the more immobile succesful passers. Not even Big Ben or Cam Newton would do very well putting themselves
  5. Hi boys and girls, long time no talk. Absolutely you can label him a bust. It's no coincidence that Mike Shanahan, Kyle Shanahan, Jay Gruden, and now supposedly Scot McCloughan have all tried to create some distance from Griffin as a starter. The Shanahans in particular were by FAR his best opportunity to learn and mold himself in to a true NFL passer and he yet was resistant to adapting his game and ultimately instrumental in them getting the boot. The behind the scenes nonsense with Griffin turned out to be way more ridiculous than I ever imagined possible... but such is life with t
  6. Unless you're a scout with an eye for this sort of thing, saying that he absolutely couldn't transition to a 3-4 OLB is every bit as ridiculous as suggesting that it's a good fit for him. It's important not to forget that most of the better 3-4 OLBs out there got their start as 4-3 ends.
  7. I mean, I expected him to get heavily fined and suspended again at SOME point. This was kind of questionable, though. Usually Meriweather is about 10,000x more overt with the head-hunting.
  8. Maybe so but I'm not convinced Sanchez ever had it to begin with.
  9. For mostly self-interested, investigative reasons... RGIII. Former Redskin... easily Chris Cooley. Just seems like a cool guy and is one of the more knowledgeable and enjoyable media personalities we've got. If I had the chance to actually talk football with someone... I think you'd almost have to go with Peyton, Tom, or a guy working the other end of the game's great mindgames like Ed Reed. If it could be ANYONE without regard for the laws of space and time... Sean Taylor. Would kill for an opportunity to even say something in passing but it's too late for that now. Thanks, man. You
  10. I mean, it really depends on circumstance. If they turn to Savage mid-season because the other QBs are failing and "we've got nothing to lose with the rookie", then that's not a great marker for personal success at all and often seems to bode poorly for young QBs. If someone goes down and Savage comes in off the bench and impresses, that's definitely a great sign. If he improves every week in practice and eventually they decide he's their best option and bump him up then that's also good... but with coachspeak being what it is it'll be hard to tell if this is really the case or they're actu
  11. I figured Johnny would disappoint on the field but now I don't know... That's the kind of training and supplementation regimen that did wonders for the 90s Cowboys.
  12. The thing about Romo is that he's played at a consistent level throughout his career. He started VERY strong after riding the bench a few years and his production hasn't wavered much at all from year to year. I bring this up because you talk about Romo not being successful because the Cowboys have no defense but fail to realize that for much of his career he's actually had a VERY good defense. The Cowboys D was on the rise under the infinitely amusing Bill Parcells (ft. Mike Zimmer) and was consistently in the top 10 during Wade Phillips' tenure as head coach. Romo played just as well the
  13. You're honing in on a single phrase without reading the context.
  14. The Graham hearing had important implications regarding the franchise tag. It will have zero impact on what Graham earns if he is allowed to negotiate a contract with the Saints or another team. He will absolutely command money befitting a top WR if his performance doesn't suddenly decline. The market ultimately cares less about position than production and on-the-field value. Just look at what happened to safety salaries over the last decade. It used to be that the gulf between CBs and safeties was similar to the gulf between WRs and TEs. However, as more and more dynamic playmakers ha
  15. This actually has no impact on his asking price. TEs can and will be paid like WRs if their performance warrants it when it comes time to work out a long-term deal (see: Gronk's contract). The whole point of the franchise tag is to avoid paying a valuable player their asking price and/or market price.
