You've reminded me of the the contradictory nature of the top Redskins executives. The idea that the HC's job should be on the line with a team that is clearly rebuilding is unfair to him and makes no sense.

Yes, I'm aware that the Skins executives always claim that they're in the race and that they expect to go to the playoffs but I don't believe them. Just one look at our QB, WR and ILB positions will tell you that we're in a rebuild. I don't have a problem with rebuilding but I do have a problem with doing it in a half-assed way.

Not extending Jay Gruden's contract and asking him to make the playoffs under the pressure of possibly losing his job is a disincentive to his playing the younger players to get them ready for years of legitimate future playoff runs.

Wouldn't it be nice to hear some truth from Redskins executives and to see them provide a clear-cut direction for a HC who is not a perpetual lame duck?

Re: Redskins Training Camp Thread

Agree that Gruden's job should not be on the line with a true rebuild, regardless of how long he's been there. That's why I don't wanna see Haskins out there prematurely (especially if he's not ready), if Gruden flat out feels he can't win with Colt/Case. Just don't want to see Haskins' growth/progression take a hit unnecessarily.

Re: Redskins Training Camp Thread

The FO will never go into or admit full rebuild. According to Bruce "we're close." To what? 9-7? Look what happened when you played what should have been a SB team. Brees had his family on the sidelines celebrating records. Bruce has to be the dumbest executive in pro sports. Quit trying to BS the fans. Look at your stadium on Sundays. Own that, instead of dancing around it.

Attendance should be interesting this year with it declining in 2018. Think it will be very telling for overall fan interest.

Re: Redskins Training Camp Thread

Just read this great article about Kerrigan and how committed he is to maintaining his body for football.. Perhaps there is not much else Redskins can do to prevent injuries, only players themselves need to put in the work and commit to body maintenance on their own? Kerrigan gave a great example - "If you are out here working your ass off in training camp and going back to the hotel and ordering burgers and fries for dinner, you are going to struggle the next few days."

I fully expect it to pick up right where it left off last season, and continue to get worse. Unless they start off like 4-0 to 6-1 and somehow look really good, I think it's going to continue to decline. Some good potential players drafted aren't going to change things overnight. You still see #FIREBRUCEALLEN everywhere you look.

The team may be banking on Haskins as the cure all- even for attendance. That and Gruden's make or break year have me thinking they could rush Haskins starting before he's ready. As good as Haskins is, I don't think he's enough to cure attendance woes- at least not yet.

Re: Redskins Training Camp Thread

If this team starts out 1-3 or 1-4, Jay will be gone mid season

I wouldn't be surprised but, in view of the first five games on their schedule, it might be grossly unfair to fire him mid-season.

Game 1 - at Philly
Game 2 - Dallas
Game 3 - Chicago
Game 4 - at NYG
Game 5 - New England

Re: Redskins Training Camp Thread

Dallas (Zeke may be out) is winnable
Chicago will come down to earth a little bit IMO.
