You picked the one example of a team picking up a retired qb off the couch with success to support your theory?

I can name 10 different qb's picked up off the couch who didn't do shit for their teams, probably 8/10 were used by us at some point due to injury.

Well, TH did literally come off the couch and help us get into the playoffs. Almost pulled off a win against the Buccs too.

OK, I'll get my coat...

The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again expecting different results. If we trade up, this franchise is fucked. Period.


Also, just having a QB doesn't mean jack shit. Look at the Chiefs record right now and they got the best on the planet.
It's funny that you say that, because this team has continued to ignore the QB position in the draft over and over again.

Also, this is the first time, in the entirety of the Snyder era (except maybe the Gibbs 2.0 years) that we won't have Dan Snyder meddling with QB decisions.

If the GM really wants one of the top 2 QBs in the draft, they should do anything and everything to get it.

I think a lot of us got Ashburned this year including myself. I thought there was no way the defense would be bad enough to have us picking in the top 5 but here we are.

In reality this season has played out perfectly for us. We’re probably looking at the 2nd overall pick in a strong QB draft, we got our answer on Sam (not good enough),and Ron did nothing to save his job.

We are at rock bottom, but Snyder is gone to be closely followed by Rivera, and good times can be ahead.

Re: Happy New Year - Ring in the year with a wish and a warning

This year feels like every other year we massively underperformed our expectations, with one glaring difference. Snyder is gone. Josh Harris is in charge and has a track record of turning bum franchises into good ones.

I watched the Devils vs. Caps last night (aka Harris vs. Leonsis) and it struck me how young and fast they are. Basically they are the Caps of a decade ago but without an Ovi on the roster. That's what we have to look forward to. An owner who knows the best thing he can do is hire the right people, sign the checks and stay out of the way (aka not-tell your young talent evaluator to pick your son's bff qb on draft day). Hopefully this time will be different.
