    We played well, and credit to Pittsburgh for turning it around but I feel there were a few calls that went against us that changed the momentum.
    The penalty on Jaylon and LVE stand out.

    All in all, played well and the defence was much better. Gallimore was impressive.

    LVE penalty was a joke ... The guy is pushing his neck back.
    As for Jaylon ... 1st one - 50/50 but he blocked the WR, made it easy. The 15 yarder was legit - you cannot touch QBs anymore, and he did.
    I still would trade him for a 2nd/3rd if we get an offer - he's never going to be worth the contract we pay him unless he's rushing constantly, where he's really good

    All the people involved in the DeAndre Hopkins trade on the Houston side should be permanently banned from employment in any sports. Kyler Murray is getting majority of the plaudits. That was some catch from Hopkins though.

    Dallas pulls out a win, creating a log jam at the top of the NFC East where all teams have 3 wins now.

    McCarthey is going to squeek out a playoff spot, then pull an upset in the first round, which will save his job, then we re-sign Dak in the offseason, trade Zeke for the draft pick that ends up becoming the next lock down cornerback, and go on to win a few Super Bowls.

    Maybe.

    Probably not though.

    McCarthy will stay for another year regardless. Question is Nolan.
    I like what I saw yesterday - the D competed, and Donovan Wilson plays safety like Ronny Lott used to. To knock Cook like that ... damn.
    A bit tough to 'win' as a loss would have given us a great chance for a top 3 pick .. but I think we can win the division, and if Gregory/Smith/Tank and bring heat, who knows. If the Giants could win super bowls with Eli ...

    Dont think the Joneses will trade Zeke, and I still feel he'll be a valuable member of the team. But that contract is tough.

    Great win yesterday, and they have a great shot of actually getting to the play offs given how shite the NFC east is this season.

    That catch by Ceedee Lamb was unreal. Fucking hell!

    We'll be in sole possession of first in the NFC East after Thanksgiving, I can feel it.


    Also, I must admit the idea of the Washington football team not picking a new mascot has grown on me, I hope they hold what they got.

    Yeah, I think so too. Arent WFT starting their QB3? Anyway, the last 2-3 games have shown a fight on defense we havent seen all season, and Dalton looked good for most part of the game yesterday.
    Martin is such a fantastic player, that he'll boss any position he's given. It would be insane if he gets a Pro Bowl at RT aswell.

    I'm not sure, I think Alex Smith is starting for them, which makes him the 3rd QB they have started this season, but he is technically the backup on the depth chart.

    If we can manage a average running game and play with the same effort on defense we will win Thursday and probably the rest of our division games at least.

    A big if, but we are due a decent performance on Thanksgiving.

    Well, it was all but a decent performance last night. That was awful. The game management from McCarthy was ridiculous.
    Two TDs from going for it on 4th down on your own 30+ yard line. Its just mindblowing.

    I think the performance in the 1st half was fine ...
    1) Lamb was clearly interfered was on the 4th and 1. I'm more pissed that he just didn't run to Zeke. It's a 4th and 1.
    2) The penalty call of blocking McLaurin was bogus, he ran into him at full speed.
    3) The two OL injuries didn't help again. We don't play well with Steele at RT.
    4) The fake punt was stupid.

    I guess we may be picking top 5 - which is good, as we should be able to trade down and get another 2nd and 3rd.

    We win yesterday if it wasn't for coaching imo.

    Yeah, I think we win if not for the coaching.

    This is rare ... very rare ... 1st round draft pick released before 2nd season is finished:
    Article: The Washington Football Team released quarterback Dwayne Haskins on Monday.

    How does it work with rookie contracts? He gets the guaranteed monies but the game bonuses are waived? Anyways, he should be set for life, even he does not play a single game after this, I am assuming.

    Unless he spends a lot of money on strippers he'll be fine

    Not 100% sure but i think he'll get paid most of that contract as rookie contracts are guaranteed.

    Sounds like they had their issues with this going for this pick already in 2019, and Ron Rivera gave him a second chance.
    Will be interesting to see if bounces off different squads now, going forward, and end up just fading away from the whole NFL. Or if he works himself back to having some sort of career.

    With the off the field issues, I'm guessing the former.

    Amazing that the Cowboys are still in with a play off chance. Insane.

    @Hansern ...
    The cowboys are shit when they have to win, and when all they have to do is lose to start rebuilding the team through the draft? They're shit at that too.

    Think the Redskins will win the division ... but the team didn't quit and if the team has a healthy OL next year, a healthy Dak and 2-3 defensive players makers added via draft, we could maybe finish 8-8! ;-)

    Zeke looked young, fresh yesterday for the first time in ages ...

    Tbh, I’d rather be in with a play off shot than tanking the rest of the seaon after 3-9.
    I think McClay will be able to find some gems even if we’re not picking in the top 5.
    Mad to think that you’ll get Tyron, Jarwin, Collins and Dak back before next season aswell.

    Hopefully Washington will have to start their back QB next week, but if not we pick at number 11ish?
