Not doubting that the ageless one has aged. If you have mentioned it before -and i believe you have- than you were the only one. I know his replacement has been / is a priority. My God though - he has gone from God to goat in a week on this board.

Not sure he's at goat status. I think you are overreacting a bit on some of the things said. I don't see anybody wanting him cut, benched, or immediately replaced. It's just those signs of age and a end of a era are about over.

Goat was the wrong word for sure but God to not important anymore didnt have the same spice to it. Im really not referring to these recent comments on this thread Again just a case of what have you done for me lately. No biggie.

Agreed. Hopefully Riley can master the intangibles like London.

Fletcher shouldn't be asked to cover much, especially on the outside, anyway. He's a tackling machine who should always be in the middle of the field, where he does ok covering because of excellent vision. But matching him up w/ a WR, TE on the outside is just bad scheming IMO.

Re: Week 8: Redskins Vs Steelers Matchup Thoughts

I am more hopeful that Fletch protects himself for his future. He has been an awesome Skin, now I think it's time to take care of himself. We should have a plan in place and if we don't, then we need to struggle through it.

Re: Week 8: Redskins Vs Steelers Matchup Thoughts

So, it sounds like Logan will run with the starters

Logan Paulsen to start at tight end for Redskins vs. Steelers

I think he'll be pretty solid and could put up some decent numbers, maybe work his way into a nice contract bump.

We also have his replacement already on the roster possibly. That's exactly why we drafted Keenan Robinson. Perry Riley could be playing himself into that role too, heir to Fletcher's spot.
This. And I believe Robinson's draft report was high on his athleticism and coverage skills.

I watched a lot of Logan and i told people he will surprise everyone. Hes not the fastest, but hes got good hands, big, and can sit down in coverage and find open space. I expect big games from him coming up

D Hall playing FS will be a game changer for us this Sunday, the D will look like a beast.

Runaway win (with the emphasis on RUN) for the Skins.

I agree wholeheartedly. Safety first with one of my favorite people in the world.

When people criticize Shanny, this another example of how he has built the team: quality depth. Pauleson stepped in last week and had a phenomenal game. He made big plays and was a game changer.

In the past, we woulda plugged in somebody and gotten nothing from him.

Pauleson has been on the team for several years, working hard, getting limited play, but watching and learning the system. What happens when he got his shot last week? He delievered.

This is how you build a quality team period. All the Shanny hatters cant say sh*t.
