Re: Skins Wins - predictions go here

It doesn’t matter how much talent we have. If poorly coached you just can’t win. Eventually the players start to play SOFT and it all goes south. The Dolphins are there - they’ve given up and sunk. Don’t be fooled, we’re not far behind them. Players like Scherff are getting “injured” because he knows he’ll be on another team next year. Others will follow.

Re: Skins Wins - predictions go here

This team will go winless as long as Gruden and Manusky are in as coaches.


If Gruden is replaced by O’Connell and they can get a good DC to replaced Manusky, then the team may win a couple. The hard part is enticing a good EXTERNAL DC to come here under these conditions (I.e., Snyder, Allen, long history of buffoonery, etc). Easier to do if Allen is replaced.

This team may have to have a winless or the second worst record this season to get Snyder to make major changes like replacing Bruce Allen or hiring a REAL GM who has the power to change this team’s losing culture.

Re: Skins Wins - predictions go here

As long as Jay Gruden and Gregg Manusky are coaches for this franchise, this team could lose, even to Miami. Gruden is tanking to get fired and Manusky is just plain incompetent.

What's your evidence for that?

Scherff has played through numerous, bad injuries throughout his college and pro career.

He has been recognized by every coach he has played for since Iowa as unbelievably tough, even playing the same week as having a surgical procedure on his knee in college.

If word got out that he was faking an injury, (which is contrary to his entire football playing history) it would arguably hurt his market value more than being dinged up after the season.

The Redskins had the most injured players that last TWO SEASONS. Partly due to poor conditioning and soft practices. But one also suspects that some players use the opportunity of a losing season, on a losing franchise to perhaps “exaggerate injuries to save themselves for next season”. Agreed that Scherff is tough and plays hurt. I withdraw my statement about Scherff, but still submit that some players will use the closing culture of this Redskins to exaggerate injuries.

BTW, Callahan is having players doing post-practice sprints to toughen then up!

Which players would sprints toughen up the most?

Re: Skins Wins - predictions go here

I'm going to need to see a few wins before I'll buy into this idea that running sprints and having a tougher practice is making a difference.

It won't change much, yeah they may beat Miami Sunday (maybe) but this team sucks. It's a 3-13 team at best, look at our schedule, who are they going to beat besides Miami? I don't see anyone

Even if we pound Miami I don't want to hear people crowing about how Callahan has magically turned shit around and what a turd Gruden was. Let's string some wins together first.

Yep.

Just putting this here:

Miami's defense is the worst.

Re: Skins Wins - predictions go here

There is some backlash in Miami, against making the “tanking strategy” look a little easy and casual.

I see them coming out with fire.
