Why would it get closed? All i heard was how Bob was going to light up the Denver secondary. What happened?

Not sure what you are trying to prove but the thead is an embarrassment. No RG fan or skins fan started a thread about how lousy the Colts looked just two weeks ago to the Chargers who are not the Broncos by any stretch.

There were plenty of threads on how terrible the colts played the chargers.

So is it the knee this week or the defense that's to blame this week?

I don't really see any Redskins fans caring - at least in their forums or any that I know in person. Hardly ever see Luck's name mentioned from any of them, but the situation is different because there isn't any second guessing the pick - they never had a shot at Luck. Seems to be a one sided affair - at least within their respective forums.

A few stray belligerent fans trolling over here doesn't count. :)

What a sad little thead that hopefully gets closed sooner rather than later.

I could say the same about a few others "theads". Debate is a good thing... as long as everyone can get their opinions out without being censored like certain others out here do.

I'd like to see someone argue on his behalf... the man has looked shaky this year.

Time to bring in Skip Bayless.

Dude's gonna have a short career. Which is what I said before he was drafted.

We picked the right one, and only 24 games later it's becoming fast apparent.

I can understand somewhat where your coming from in that it's a bit of a crowing post but it is hard not to push back a little when he's not living up to expectations when certain sections of the media did and continue to take shots at the Colts and Luck both directly and indirectly by their canonisation of RG3. Yes I'm talking about Skip in the main.

I would argue too it wasn't Luck having a bad game per say against the Chargers, if some of those passes aren't put down it could have been a very different story. But could of, would have, should have doesn't win you anything.

Kick a man while he's down, he'll be alright, he just played bad today. Doesn't really interest me, I never liked the Redskins(except for when my favorite college/nfl defensive player ever played for them in Sean Taylor, man I loved that guy R.I.P)

Why on earth anyone would watch Skip Bayless or take anything he says as being legit is beyond me. Maybe people are just looking for a reason to be angry.

I have seen him take some brutal hits while dropping back... and more that he didn't need to take running down the sideline. Griffin admitted he was trying to get penalties, and will probably pay the price for saying so. People are going to challenge him now.

I'm pretty sure it's the other quarterback in that game that gets all the excuses when he loses. People pretty much tell it like it is with RGIII who I am closer and closer to saying is a bust.

With the constant shots you take at Manning it's hard to believe you aren't a Patriots fan instead of the Saints.

I'm not surprised, not everyone can have a AP type recovery. His O-line and D haven't helped alleviate the pressure on him and if course teams have had a season worth of film now to examine.

The key I've always felt was going to be once taken outside the comfort zone could his decision making stand up, and IMO the jury is still out on that one.

Skip wasn't the only one, just the main champion though quite a few have subsequently done a U turn. Either way the media did its best to make it a Luck vs RG3 competition last year and there is still some Cary over emotionally I guess.

    • They were never going to pick Lamar in 2018   Karl Joseph is a bench player and Fitzpatrick is much better than him anyways   Not sure what this post is getting after
    • They are likely kicking the can down the road, and the negative consequence is higher cap numbers for those players in future seasons, and greater cap penalties to move on from those players in future seasons. The thing is there's no much else they can do. they're set to be nearly $70m over the cap in 2021, and other than these restructures, they would not be able to get under the cap by the start of the new league year. They would have to cut or trade all of their highly paid players.
    • I feel the hype about Carl Lawson is from a combination of people who haven't really watched him play, and who overrate "pressures" by assuming that all pressures are equally disruptive.    Lawson is a tough, physical, high effort guy, he tackles well, plays the run reasonably well, he has decent size, and he would fit nicely as a DE for us. He's not a dynamic pass rusher, and I don't think he ever would be a dynamic pass rusher.   He has some quickness and speed, good speed to power, but he's not the kind of explosive pass rusher that blows up the other team's blocking schemes. He has below average bend and closing speed, and he takes a lot of steps, which explains his tragically poor three cone. He also has below average length, and gets neutralized by good blockers. This is all obvious on his tape, it was obvious on his college tape, and it's why he went in the 4th round.   TomDiggs mentioned Lawson's knockdowns/hits and hurries. PFF recorded six edge rushers with at least QB 15 hits; despite the fact that Lawson had 24 hits, he only had five sacks, which is the least sacks among those six players. In fact, there were ten edges with fewer than 15 QB hits, but with at least ten sacks. PFF has 24 edges with at least 30 pressures; Lawson had 34 hurries, but was tied for fifth fewest sacks among those 24 players. In fact, there were five edges with fewer hurries than Lawson, but at least ten sacks.   My point is that QB hits and pressures only show a player that manages to get near the QB at some point during the play. Without context, they don't necessarily show a player that makes a definite impact on the play. That's why I value PFF's pass rush productivity (PRP) stat, because sacks are weighted more heavily than hits and pressures. And that makes sense because a sack ends the play. A QB can be pressured, even hit, and still make a positive play. Recognizing a sack as nearly always a negative play for the offense, PRP shows the difference between a guy who gets near the QB, and a pass rusher who makes plays for the defense. Sometimes the overlap is not as great as you might think.   Lawson's PRP was 8.5, tied for #18, well separated from guys like Bosa (10.6) and Watt (9.7). In general, a player with a bunch of total pressures, but low sack numbers, like Lawson, is a guy who gets a bunch of pass rush snaps but doesn't have the length, bend and closing speed to get home often enough. This is why guys like Trey Hendrickson and Leonard Floyd can have a third fewer total pressures, but twice as many sacks as Lawson (Hendrickson also had 80 fewer pass rush snaps). And Lawson gets a ton of pass rush snaps because he plays for a bad team with no other good edge rushers, so as long as he's healthy he'll have a lot of pressures, but he'll probably never be a big sack guy.   He's Trey Flowers. Better 40, same agility, not as long, mid level edge rusher who is well rounded and a good guy to have on your team, but not a dominant pass rusher. I can't see offering him $14m/year to not sack the QB. Any projection that has him as a big time sack guy is unrealistic, IMO.
    • It's nice to see Pittman, Smith and Okereke get some love.
    • Did I misread your post?   Did you not say you were in favor of moving Nelson to LT?   That if we’re going to pay him top dollar, it would be better to do it with him as our LT instead of at LG?    That wasn’t you?    I’m sorry, I thought that’s what I responded to....
