I hope your right but I don't think any of those guys scare tackles.

None of them are fast twitch and instead rush successfully with sustained effort and strength.

I think Jonathan Allen has the most twitch of all our "rushers."

Which box does Ryan Anderson check off? The "No Production" box?

This is why I wasn't that upset about losing KF.

I’m not giving up on Anderson...let’s give him a second season. Think we will see much better play.

Re: Redskins Offseason Thread

I just heard a comment on a redskins podcast that puts the whole left guard situation in perspective.

Atlanta was up 28-3 in the super bowl with Chris Chester (the dude we couldn't wait to get rid of) at guard.

Re: Redskins Offseason Thread

I checked and did not find anyone had posted this:
Arie Kouandjio will miss at least “several months” after an upcoming surgery to repair a partially torn quad, leaving the Washington Redskins somewhat thin up front heading into the summer.

News of Kouandjio’s injury broke recently, casting doubt on the future of the fourth-round pick from the 2015 draft. He had started six games a year ago and figured to compete for the starting job at left guard.

According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, the minimum timetable is lengthy:

Maybe Snyder can give it to him as an early retirement present instead of a Rolex.

Here’s a link to the report to those who don’t know what you’re talking about:

Re: Redskins Offseason Thread

I am not sure if this means Bruce will no longer work with Redskins since Snyder mentioned that Bruce will continue to operate in his position. If the rumors are true then Snyder should not mention anything about Bruce in the announcement?

Snyder and Allen are close. This is just a dignified way to do things so it doesn’t look like Allen is being pushed out the door. Allen will be with the Raiders within a year. It’s just a matter of how long it will take for him to transition all the work associated with the new stadium over to lafemina

Re: Redskins Offseason Thread

Today Cooley and Kevin discussed LaFemina's nomination and its implications.

Cooley thinks it has nothing to do, one way nor the other, with Bruce Allen leaving or staying. He's even guessing Bruce hired Brian LF.

They think it means 2 things:

-Bruce Allen was in charge of picking a location for the new stadium, that choice has been made (probably will be announced in the summer), and now LaFemina is here to take care of this new stadium and its build up.

-Bruce Allen will now focus back to football operations (not that he wasn't implicated in them before).

That's quite exciting, isn't it?

I know Bruce doesn't get a lot of love (understandably), but I think continuity is a valuable asset, and this offseason he has done a solid job (AS trade, contracts negotiations, cap management...).

As for the new stadium, I've always understood nobody really likes FedEx Field so it has to feel like a good news.
Hope I'd get a chance to see a game there before the team changes stadium, so I can compare!

So last week, amidst reports Allen was linked to the Raiders, the departure of Scott Campbell, and reports that Kyle Smiths stock was rising, Cooley said Bruce was likely on the way out.

Now someone has been hired who reports directly to Snyder and whose job title arguable is superior to Allen’s, and Cooley is saying “nothing to see here.”

Hmmmmm.

Also, Bruce focusing on football operations is not an “exciting” thing. We don’t want him anywhere near football operations. His strength is the non-football, business side of things. He’s regularly botched football stuff - like his handling of the McCloughan fiasco last year - which reportedly pissed off snyder. Interesting timing that the report said Snyder tried to get LaFemina last year. There is way too much smoke here to not have any fire.

I don't remember Cooley saying Bruce was likely on his way out, he said the fact he denied it was not an indication one way or the other, that people would say that the day before they left.

I do agree it's quite a lot of smoke in the past few days though. And as Kevin Sheehan laid it out it seems like a lot of layers of upper management right now.
We'll see I guess.

For the exciting part, I was more thinking about the new stadium and continuity. If BA stays I don't see his role changing, he won't be more implicated in football operations than he already was.

Re: Redskins Offseason Thread

Allen has a home in LA. Plus now that Jon Gruden is in Oakland and soon to be Vegas, I think Allen will end up there. It makes total sense. All you have to do is put two and two together.

I doubt Allen hired this new guy, this was 100% Dan Snyder and the minority owners. He even mentioned that Snyder tried to hire him last year. They're probably tired of several things... constant bad PR, opposing fan takeovers at home games, declining ticket sales, Scot, Cousins, .. Fair or not that falls on Bruce.
