John Hammonds

The Great Washington Crimson Tide Saga

Recommended Posts

Last year, when I participated in our mock draft, I volunteered to take the Redskins.  And then did my research.  What do they need?  Who had they already drafted.  I thought it was interesting that they had spent both their first two picks in 2017 on Alabama players (DE Jonathan Allen and OLB Ryan Anderson).  It seemed funny to me that I could make this my own personal "thing", and make my draft push that trend further.

Thus, my draft was:

1 - Calvin Ridley, WR, Alabama

2 - Da'Shawn Hand, DE, Alabama

4 - Tony Brown, CB, Alabama

 

Imagine my surprise and utter joy when the REAL Redskins went ahead and spent their first round pick on an Alabama player!

1 - Da'Ron Payne, DT, Alabama

They followed it up with 6th round pick, Shawn Dion Hamilton, LB, Alabama.

This wasn't just something funny.  This was a trend.

I wasn't surprised at all when they grabbed Ha-Ha Clinton-Dix from the Packers.  And when they acquired the rights to Reuben Foster from the 49'ers?  I just smiled.  Of course they did!

 

And as we entered this year's free agency period, I knew that I wasn't wearing a tin foil hat.  This wasn't some crazy conspiracy.  This is real.

They just acquired Landon Collins.

And there are more Alabama players out there.

Just watch them make a play for both C.J. Mosley and Mark Ingram.

 

And their acquisition of QB Case Keenum from the Broncos?  Of course they don't think Keenum is the answer.  He's just a stop gap until next year's draft, when they go after QB Tua Tagovailoa.

 

You can book it.  This isn't a conspiracy.  This is real.

    • My feelings exactly.  Post of the year.
    • Dumb of the Steelers imo. Fitzpatrick is a baller but their pick could be a top 5-10 pick. They could be terrible with Big Ben out. And he has played with the idea of retiring many times so that pick could have gone to a QB in a deep class. 
    • As long as we win that is all that matters. We won yesterday beating a decent divisional opponent on the road. We should be 2-0 had Adam made his kicks against the Chargers. After another draft, we should have a great defense next year which will help carry this team even more. Do not expect the Colts to throw for a lot of yards as the team is built to run behind that great O.line. If Brissett can throw for around 220 a game I will be happy if he doesn't turn it over. Yesterday we had 167 yards rushing so he didn't need to throw for a lot of yards. His 146 yards passing isn't as bad as it looks either, he would've had another 40 or so that we gained on that interference call, he also had 3 crucial runs for 1st downs as well. His 3 TD's to only 1 INT I will take all day. For now I am behind Brissett, he isn't as good as Luck, he isn't great, but to me he does look good so far. 
    • Dont always go by the stats.  Watch the tape.  His position in this D will always have tons of tackles.  Whats alarming is his poor performances in pass coverage.  U can go back to the KC game and it is some what alarming how he seems to regressed.   I chalk it up to playing better offensive teams and he is getting exposed.  I look forward to Speed and Okerke getting a chance
    • If JB gets hurt and we have CK or Hoyer on the roster then CK will be the starter. I think that Hoyer was brought in more for CK benefit then JB.
