:shock: really? maybe you're another Patriots hater - you certainly don't know much about the Patriots D ...

When we think of this Patriots dynasty as the greatest of all time – and apologies to fans of the Dallas Cowboys and the San Francisco 49ers, the Green Bay Packers and the Pittsburgh Steelers, but it's no longer even a question – the thoughts tend to go toward the brilliance of Bill Belichick and Tom Brady, and how that relationship has been the single key. And that's true. But I'm not sure, based purely on skill set, that Brady is a demonstrably better quarterback than, say, Aaron Rodgers. And yet Rodgers' run with the Packers has been stunted through an inconsistent at best, and often awful, defense, while Brady's run with the Patriots has been propped up by the longest run of consistent defense in NFL history. It's the most underrated part of this Patriots run. Perhaps it will end with defensive coordinator Matt Patricia, who has worked with Patriots defensive players for more than a decade, departing the franchise.

I'm with Darth and welch - I hope that we get some guys in the FO that understand how to build a franchise and especially find a way to put together a decent defense here

I understand that we have a huge issue with QB but to trade away a very young, high character, really good CB is just really dumb

This team is not ready to win the NFC East. Seems to be a 7-9 or, at most, a 9-7 team. 2018 would have been a time to tank, get even better draft choices, and fly.

that's the reality here - each off season we get our hopes up ... we like to evaluate and speculate what might happen without any regard for who is making the decisions here and how for the most part those decisions have been the reason that, since 1999, this franchise has been mediocre at best with some good seasons but certainly not much hope of having a consistently competitive team with these 2 bozos in charge

even the blind squirrel finds an acorn every now and then but this FO has proven to be even worse than that

Redskins fans have gotten used to getting their hopes up and then watching the inevitable take place

The fun part about speculating & predicting what this franchise needs is that even the dumbest fan here has more of a clue about what to do than the 2 guys who are actually making the decisions for the Redskins

In the last two seasons the Pats were 2nd and 7th in points against.

So your example of Brady over the past few years is not even close.

it's really simple - Dan Snyder just needs to stop interfering with the guys that know how to manage, build and coach an NFL franchise

JP Finlay of NBC Washington believes Washington will be a player for WR Allen Robinson and, honestly, it wouldn't be hard to see the Redskins grabbing a bunch of nice new weapons for their new quarterback and then issuing a press release about how happy they are to surround Alex Smith with talent, just to spite Kirk Cousins.
what's that all about? now we're doing things just to spite an ex player - that's the sort or respect this franchise has?

What team are you talking about? The Redskins don't have any "guys that know how to manage, build and coach an NFL franchise."

They have Bruce Allen, Jay Gruden, a terrible scouting department, and a garbage roster.

the main issue is that Dan Snyder and Bruce Allen have proven they do not know what they're doing - Since Dan Snyder took over here things have just been terrible - Dan just does not seem to want to learn from his mistakes & turn things over to people who know what they're doing

Dan Snyder needs to get rid of Bruce Allen, he's been here too long and nothing much has changed - then Dan should hire someone to do whatever is needed to fix this mess - if that person doesn't get it done, get rid of him and bring in someone else

I doubt that the Redskins are going to become a viable franchise if we continue as we have done the past 10 years

Dan Snyder needs to make some dramatic changes soon or we're going to be wishing and hoping through another season

Bolster the trenches. If you don't start there, it's another 6-10 effort at the most.

we can add a bunch of pro bowlers and the w/l record will not change much - nobody in charge that knows how to build a roster

Getting out from Kirks contract number was vert smart.. Add some wideout depth and a solid RB... And a healthy D and we are fighting again.

AK hasnt dropped a record vs rivals like Kirk Gross man- 1and six vs the pukes folks- live that and tell me we messed up! Bye felicia

From Boswell's Q&A on Monday:

Question: What do you think it will take to get into contention in the NFC East? Especially now with arguably the best team in football, the Eagles, in our division.

Boswell: I think a better question would be: What will it take for the Skins to get to 8-8 (or 9-7) without Cousins and whomever else they lose in free agency?

We are about to find out how much damage the Skins did to themselves with the terrible optics of the twin departures of Cousins this year and ex-GM Scot McCloughan after ’16. How big will the effect be of: “OMG, don’t go to Washington. Cousins was the only thing that prevented it from being obvious that they’re still an organizational mess.” The issue is: How are they PERCEIVED by free agents, rather than What Are They Really?

Are they going to have another free agent class with bottom-of-the-barrel players like Terrelle Pryor, who looked like the beneficiary of inflated stats in his barely-1,000-yard season in Cleveland in ’16?

The Skins have so many needs. I assume they’ll re-sign LB Zach Brown because they MUST. But if he gets away, it could be a save-face free agency period. The Skins have had those in their bad-image periods in the past. Though the team always cranks up its PR efforts to make whatever players it got seem better than they are.

Alex Smith was a wonderful salvage trade, but losing both Cousins and a high-quality player and person in Kendall Fuller will hurt. Is [Bashaud] Breeland coming back?

Getting Smith means that [Jay] Gruden’s offensive theories will get a fair chance to continue being productive. But can Smith show the quick release and precision passing to make this weak corps of receivers (and no first-and-second-down RB) look decent? Smith has always been asked to be a 3,000-yard-plus QB, not a 4,000-yard-plus QB. He was surrounded by wonderful weapons in KC last season. It’s very doubtful he’ll have anything remotely similar in ’18.

Good news: Skins got Smith and can’t possibly get hurt as much in ’18 as they were in ’17. Bad news: They need a RB, a WR and at least one of everything for each defensive unit — line, LBs and DBs.
