Re: HTTR Always

I don't really care who starts but it would be fun to watch them combine for 25 or so carries per game. Get Scherff back, draft a stud LG, and keep feeding those 2 all season. Teams wouldn't like playing us.

Yes! That would be greatly positive. Freshen up the place. Get the stench out.

He was awesome this year.

We don't know what DG will be.

Guice was a 2nd rounder starting his second year and is the future RB. Iím sure things will playout at training xamp.

Re: HTTR Always

Let rookies (Guice) prove they should start. Dont give away something that someone should earn.
AP played hard for us with a painful shoulder injury. Never complained or used it as an excuse.
Guice was a great college player. He has not proven it in NFL yet. I hope he becomes a star.

Re: HTTR Always

It's not as if Guice is a mystery, he was here all last offseason and through a good part of camp and he was definitely looking the part. The coaches have a good idea of what he can do.

Rest assured, Bruce will start the RB who gives us the best chance to win.

Re: HTTR Always

Yeah I'm confused by all this 'we don't know what Guice is' talk. The coaches all saw him in camp, so did his teammates, and so did the reporters. Everyone raved.

Did everyone just forget about that?

Yes you are crazy.I've always liked Colt and I think he could put up some good numbers,but he can't stay healthy,he's good for a backup and thats it,this year finally proved that to me.2 games and he's out for the season.Last time he had any significant playing time splitting with RG3 he got hurt also,and he was what 5 years younger? If he's our starter next year we will need a good backup because I dont think Colt would last past 5 games

Let's see what happens in the offseason - if we get a new coach there's a lot of reason to believe the defense could be better under a new coach. If Jay stays and coaches Colt with Guice, there's reason to believe the offense could be surprising next season when healthy.



I think there's more of a foundation here than the despair in the air would lead you to believe.
Agreed 100%. Saturday showed we are not that far away.

Get the injured guys back, have a good off season, hopefully get a new HC, at the very least a new DC that plays this D to its full potential, hope for less injuries next season, drink a sip of kool aid and believe we have the tools to make some damage in 2019!

25 combined minimum. Iím thinking we might be best suited for a run first offense, like the saints the past couple years.

I remember when they raved about Kelly and Perine too. Not knocking guice at all. But heís never taken a regular season snap in the NFL. If AP comes back, guice has got to earn his workload.

If we keep AP, i want over 2,000 rushing yards combined between them with a fairly even split.

Agree...I like colt but he canít stay healthy.. After the last several years, im all in for getting rid off the often injured. Reed, Luavo, Colt, Doctson, even CT and it pains me to say that....

Re: HTTR Always

The expectation of draft picks in rounds 1, 2 and even 3 is they are supposed to be starters week 1. Example DeRon Payne.....

Guice was the starting running back. Selected in round 2. If this team ends up with Peterson starting in front of Guice week 1 of 2019 season, it is just a demoralizing kick in the crotch to your scouting department and the ability to draft as a whole. If Guice is not the starter, you've wasted a second round pick.

I do not see Peterson coming back next season. With 9 draft picks in this years draft, your backup running back is not on the roster yet.

Rookies cost less than veterans.

I think we could see more of a 2 headed monster with those two.....if Gruden can wise up and be more creative he can find ways to have AP and Derrius both in the backfield simultaneously....the defense wouldn't be able to key on both of them...reminds me of Marcus Allen and Bo Jackson together for the Raiders back in the day.

Re: HTTR Always

If I'm the Skins I'm in no rush to re-sign AP unless he's down for something like a one year $1M or $2M deal. I don't see any team out there rushing out to sign a 34 year old RB. He'll likely be in the same spot he was last year, hanging out waiting for a camp injury.
