  1. I think they definitely could be, but only if they get rid of Gase. He's a terrible coach and seems to be a cancer in his own locker rooms. His only real claim to fame was being Peyton's OC in Denver, which was essentially a ceremonial position with PM at that point in his career. I don't see Adams on the trade block having anything to do with Hooker.
  2. I think that's my issue too. It's looking at where he struggled and realizing that he's struggled in those areas since college, which tells me what we saw last year is what we'd get in the future as well. He's a guy that can keep things afloat in a pinch, but he lacks the "killer instinct" to make aggressive throws that you need a QB to make.
  3. You know they will. You see teams still selling jerseys of players that have been gone for over a year, just because they have the stock. A lot of the diehard fans that aren't happy with the name change will probably jump at the chance to buy up old Redskins gear.
  4. I actually see a steep drop-off in merch sales for the team. Why buy new jerseys and gear with a temporary name and logo on them that will be different in a year?

    Wow....you doubled down... I don't think you understood me. I'm not arguing any specific point that you made. What I'm saying is that, in my opinion, the lens that you view the world through is fractured and skewed (again, a house of mirrors comes to mind). It has seemed to me in the past that you just hold some unpopular opinions when it comes to football and the Colts and are too stubborn to see other's perspective. Your 2 past posts on this thread show that it's not just unpopular opinions, it's an entirely warped sense of reality. This is telling in that you state your vision of what the reality is, then cite that everyone else's view of this is incorrect and only your point of view is correct. Again, I'm going to refrain from name calling, because that's not productive, but the word I will use is unwell.

    I wanted to give this a day before I responded, because I was absolutely floored by this post. My instant reaction would have likely gotten me banned for the choice words I had. I will only say that based on this post and many of your other posts, it's obvious that you have a very skewed point of view and sense of reality. Now that I realize this, it's clear there is no reason for me to continue to engage with you, as there will never be an undistorted discussion with you. It just seems like every thought get filtered through a house a mirrors on it's way out and there's no reasoning with that. Best of luck.

    Ahhh. I get what you're saying and can see some of the logic. My only thoughts about how the fall sports could be different is that a school like Alabama makes SO much more money from a football season than an Ivy league school does. Money is a huge driving factor for a lot of these schools and conferences. I think it may be easier for an Ivy League school to shut down its sports programs because they tend to not be the biggest money makers for them, which allows them to make the better decisions for their student athletes. It'll be interesting to see if the Ivy League really is the "canary in the coal mine" and other conferences/leagues follow suit.

    There were some big issues taken with how that poll was conducted. This 2020 study found much different results: https://www.washingtonian.com/2020/02/21/a-new-study-contradicts-a-washington-post-poll-about-how-native-americans-view-the-redskins-name/

    I'm pretty sure the issue with the Cleveland Indians is less to do with the name and more to do with their mascot. They seem to be opting to just make a change before they face the same level of scrutiny as the Redskins. For decades Native Americans, led by the National Congress of American Indians, have opposed the name "Redskins" as a racial slur. I'd say the opinion of the people the slur is derogatory towards hold way more value than anyone else. I also find it amusing that you complain about "the mob" having the authority to define something as offensive, then follow that up by expressing your own opinion as fact that it isn't offensive. Who are you to tell Native Americans that a slur towards them isn't offensive? Also, that's like saying the term "negro" isn't offensive, because "it's what they looked like by the people who named them". This is a decades long fight that a few multi-national corporations decided to throw their weight behind, to support a minority group that has been asking for this change for a very long time. That was the time period where almost everything shut down, so I wouldn't say the Ivy League canceling their NCAA tournament was a driving force of anything, just more of an event coinciding with a national lockdown.

    I've seen the nickname Redtails floated and I love it. For those that don't know the Redtails were a group of African American pilots who fought in World War II and were the first unit of African American military aviators in the United States armed forces, also known as The Tuskegee Airmen. It would still fit in with a lot of things with the team like HTTR and their fight song could easily be modified to make it work. This mock up logo is pretty great too:
  11. I liked him as a prospect to fill the WILL spot, but the small school piece was my biggest concern. I mocked him to us bunch in the 3rd, so I was a bit surprised to see him go in the 2nd.
  12. I'm assuming a team would have players sign a HIPAA disclosure form with the Covid tests that would legally allow medical staff conducting the test to disclose the diagnosis to the organization. I'm not sure if that disclosure form would just limit disclosure of the diagnosis to the organization, to which they can't disclose the information any further or if there would have to be language that expressly spells out that the organization can make the information public.
  13. Agreed. Although, I can see that being the starting point to bring teams to the table and start a bidding war, with the goal of landing an even richer contract.
  14. Muhammed could make that DE list over Green and Lewis may be used more as a DE in Sheard's old spot, but he and Autry luckily have some flexibility at both if needed.
