Well exactly. But I think the point some are making is domestic violence and child abuse are much more kryptonic than protest. Or in this case they are not. Which is what the problem is.

He’s pretty damn good, watched him here in SF. However, if a video surfaces like the Ray Rice incident he would be toast.

Re: Redskins have claimed LB Reuben Foster

Bob Papa said this looks like a desperation move by the skins FO, Meaning they know if things go south like they appear, guys will lose jobs. Most are clowning the skins after this move but IMO I think it's a easy decision. If he can't play no harm is done and if he can play he may be a good addition.

He also has a laundry list of things he did other than kneeling for the flag. Wore socks to practice that depicted police as pigs. Made internet posts comparing cops to runaway slave catchers. He praised Fidel Castro and wore a shirt with his likeness.

He also did football related things teams would not like. He switched to a vegan diet without professional supervision losing an overly excessive amount of muscle mass while recovering from surgery. He dated a teammates ex who may not even be an ex at the time that caused them to almost come to blows and some supposed damage to Kap's car. That guy was Aldon Smith, some of Smith's issues could have been tied to Kap. He was also aloof and kept mostly to himself, he did not interact with teammates like a leader should. He also worked hard in areas he was already good at, running and strength, and would not put in the extra work where he was deficient. If you want more study film on his play. He flees the pocket early, never gets past a second read and locks on receivers. He is extremely poor at reading defenses.
His early successes were from mostly his running, he steadily went downhill after his initial success. He has been out of football 2 years and is 3-16 the last two seasons he played.

On March 23, 2017, Sanchez signed a one-year contract with the Chicago Bears.[120] The Bears had noted the "positive influence" Sanchez had as a mentor to rookie quarterback Dak Prescott and looked for him to play a similar role in the development of rookie Mitchell Trubisky.[121] On May 30, 2017, Sanchez suffered a small knee injury in his left knee. He missed the remainder of OTA's and the minicamp. In response, the Bears rescinded the waiver request to Connor Shaw following the injury to Sanchez.[122] Sanchez made the Bears' final roster third on the quarterback depth chart behind Trubisky and Mike Glennon, but did not play at all in 2017.

Re: Redskins have claimed LB Reuben Foster

I'm still in "wait and see" mode on this, but not a fan initially. It's like the Redskins said, "Hey, it's POSSIBLE this guy might be absolved of any wrongdoing, so let's just take a chance on a potential piece of shit." Ehh, if all charges are dropped (not filed?) then it sits a little better, but man this isn't even a second chance, more like a fifth?

Redskins have claimed LB Reuben Foster

Twitter post from Chris Russel:

To add to this from last night: Told this morning that key personnel people AND some important assistant coaches are not on board with acquisition of Foster. What matters? Jay Gruden, Bruce Allen & Dan Snyder approved it. #Redskins”


Fuck this team. Gruden sucks as a coach, Bruce Allen is worthless garbage, and Snyder is the worse owner in sports. Pure filth. A disgrace to people like Joe Gibbs

Totally agree. American culture is now a culture of instant outrage. The bigger issue to me is that the Skins have put themselves is the position of being looked at through that lens.

Well that is what really matters in any business right? If the bosses think something is best that is the way it rolls.

I am an innocent till proven guilty kind of guy so I will wait and see before throwing the team under the bus.

Re: Redskins have claimed LB Reuben Foster

I'm sure there are plenty of moves that are made around the league where not everyone in the FO is "on board with it". Non issue.
