In the immortal words of Doug Kenney aka Stork from Animal House - what the hell we supposed to do, yah moron?

Long time lurker here ... and slightly intimidated by the knowledge on this forum ... especially you cap-ologist dudes (holy moly) .... I am curious ...

How would you prioritize the needs on this team, and how would you fill 'em? We have some pretty big holes to try and plug.

Offensive Tackle
Offensive Guard
Quarterback
Wide Receiver
Edge Rusher


And hell ... Tight End needs some re-tooling too in my opinion. We're old, fragile, or both right now. Finding a "Gronk Lite" would be useful. At pick 15, we could rightfully pick ANY of the above positions.



So be front office for a minute, and tell me how you'd go forward. Cuz I don't have the slightest clue.


I worry about O-Line the most. I'm a huge Louisville Cardinal fan, and I worry that we may have reached on my boy Christian last year. He has potential ... but I'd feel better if he had one more year to grow. Throwing him in this year, on anything more than emergency spot duty, could be disastrous for him, and us. Our recent injury issues on OLine makes me worry about that.

So in honor of another Louisville great, Joe Jacoby, I'm inclined to go O-Line in this draft -- early and often -- but again ... I don't have the slightest clue.

As Stork said "what the hell are we supposed to do?"

Start with pass rushing DE then swing tackle, best player after that.

Start sipping the kool-aid brother, in Keenum we believe-num.

Also I can't figure out why a replacement for Lauvao seems to not be a priority.

Re: In the immortal words of Doug Kenney aka Stork from Animal House - what the hell we supposed to do, yah moron?

Not a bad first post, and I think the community appreciates thoughtful engagement. No reason to feel intimated as long as you put some effort into our opinions.

I also think it's getting to that time where it's nice to step back and understand exactly where we stand. It's easy to think the Redskins are completely lost and hopeless, however I think there are some great things going for this team.

For starters, this defensive unit has a ton of potential. It certainly seems like that has been the core focus of management, and I do not see a reason to stop. I think filling in the secondary would be smart, and could be done day 2 of the draft. You could stay local and snag either Juan Thornhill (UVA), or Darnell Savage (UMD) for a nice compliment to Collins. Regardless of who we end up getting, someone that could play FS and step in at nickel when needed would provide great relief.

Secondly, you are right about tight end. It's traditionally been a strong point on this team with JR and VD, but I think going into 2019 with the status quo would be a massive mistake. This team desperately needs consistency and young talent at the position, especially with a JAG at QB. I'd lean towards a better blocking TE vs the sexy route runner, but that may be short sighted for 2019. Perhaps Josh Oliver from San Jose State?

Lastly, I would have to agree with you about OL. Depth is the name of the game here. Let's roll with the guys we have, but get some projects that can pan out to replace the old guys. It always gives me pause when I hear people talk about our O-Line as a strength. Yes, our starters are excellent at times when healthy, but they all get hurt. Always. It's an inevitability of the position, and needs to be treated as such.

All and all, If I was the GM, I would build around the young core and auction off the older players that still have value. I know BA and DS do not think this way, and so I fear an 8-8 type season looms ahead. We shall see.

Because he was so bad anything will be an upgrade, they figure they will take leftovers.
