2020.11.20 21:04 Rsubs33 [Game Preview] Week 11 - Philadelphia Eagles(3-5-1) @ Cleveland Browns (6-3)

Philadelphia Eagles (3-5-1) at Cleveland Browns (6-3)
This is a matchup between two teams headed in completely opposite directions. The Browns are a team on the rise looking to have their first winning record since 2007. Meanwhile the Eagles look like they are headed to their first losing record since Doug Pederson’s first season in 2016. Pederson’s offense which was once thought to be creative has become stale. The screen game which was once a staple of the offense has become nonexistent and Pederson frequently abandons the run early despite having one of the top running backs in the league which kills the play-action game. The coach’s arrogance has prevented him from hiring a true OC and handing over play-calling duties and that arrogance has seen his team make first round exits in the playoffs the last two years. I don’t have an answer for what this team needs to do for a win because with Doug calling the plays I think we can expect the same stale offense we have seen throughout this season. The same can be said with the Eagles defense where Jim Schwartz believes in his scheme over his players and rarely puts his guys in the best position and relies on them winning one on ones to bail him out. Hopefully this season will be a wakeup call to ownership and the coaching staff that the Super Bowl season was 3 years ago and they have been mediocre since that game. As always go Birds.

Eagles 29 - Browns 10
The Eagles kicked off the 2016 season against the Cleveland Browns. 2nd Overall pick Carson Wentz made his debut. The Eagles started off well. Wentz threw his 1st career TD to Jordan Matthews. Caleb Sturgis missed a field goal in the 1st Quarter but made one early in the 2nd Quarter to extend the lead to 10–0. The Browns would respond early in the 2nd quarter with an Isaiah Crowell 1 yard TD to cut the Eagles lead to 10–7. The Eagles only managed to kick another Sturgis field goal in the 2nd Quarter which resulted in a 13–7 lead at halftime. The Browns then kicked another field goal to change the score to 13–10. Midway through the 3rd Quarter, a bad snap by Browns center Cameron Erving went over the head of Quarterback Robert Griffin III and into the end zone for a safety and it extended the Eagles lead to 15–10. Following that drive, Wentz and the offense went back to work . Wentz threw his 2nd TD to Nelson Agholor to change the score to 22–10. The Eagles mainly burned out the clock in the 4th quarter to weaken the Browns hopes of a comeback. Ryan Mathews sealed the game with a 1-yard TD to make the final score 29–10.

Stats to Know
Eagles to Face One of the Greatest Former Eagles of All Time
I’m not sure I know of any Eagles fan that misses former Eagles Safety Andrew Sendejo, do you? Hey Browns fans, are you enjoying him yet? Sendejo is known for not just his bad tackling, but also taking out his own teammates (“Sorry, Avonte!”). It just so happens that Sendejo’s propensity for missed tackles is at an all-time low this season. Of 93 Safeties with appreciable snaps, Sendejo is tied for 4th-worst tackling efficiency (weighted per snap). He is tied for 2nd-worst in number of missed tackles against the run (7), which puts him on a season’s pace notably worse than any other season in the raw stat. His tackling efficiency this season is 5.2, so far, compared to 6.0 last year and 7.2 the year before. Looking at coverage ability, he’s allowing a passer rating of 135 this season, compared to 95 last year, and 84 the year prior. I’ll take Will Parks for now. You enjoy, Browns fans.
Matchups to Watch
Eagles Run Defense vs Browns Rushing Offense
The Browns are an analytically driven team and because of that they know that a good, efficient, and explosive passing attack is key to success in the NFL. That has been a bit of a struggle at times this year for a number of reasons. One area of their team where they haven't struggled is in the running game. First year HC Kevin Stefanksi has brought a lot of the good he implemented with the Vikings to the Browns as they have an incredibly effective and diverse running game; they do just about everything and do it well. Why? Their offensive line has quickly become one of the best in the NFL. A big reason for this success is new OL coach Bill Callahan, one of the best OL coaches in the game. One thing that works in Callahan's favor is the improved talent on the roster. Joel Bitonio has long been on of the best guards in the NFL; Callahan has then made Wyatt Teller a force on the inside. Rookie Jedrick Willis has been a stud at Left Tackle and Center JC Tretter is very solid and a bit underrated. The Browns may be without RT Jack Conklin on Sunday due to COVID; his replacement will be an inevitable downgrade, unfortunately. Stefanski has gotten by with worse at the position, just look at the Vikings OL. Their scheme does a lot to hide the flaws in talent which is what any good coach should be doing. On top of that, the Browns will have Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt at running back. This is the best running back room in the NFL. The Eagles have struggled against the run of late due to their atrocious LBs and Safeties. Their defensive line is still good, but watch the linebackers. They aren't physical and they have absolutely no clue how to consistently execute their run fits. Watch this opening TD run from Daniel Jones. What on God's green earth is this? TJ Edwards absolutely blew his run responsibility. Watch Jalen Mills shy away from contact. This is why the Eagles run defense is bad. In possibly unfavorable conditions to pass, the Browns may lean on their advantage upfront and the Eagles may struggle to stop it. There isn't much reason to think they won't either as they've struggled against lesser competition than what they are about to face.
Eagles Passing Attack vs Browns Pass Defense
The Browns have a pretty average defense by DVOA but do have a good cornerback in Denzel Ward. Defensively, the Browns are pretty similar to Eagles in terms of scheme. Ward is very sticky in man coverage and isn't afraid to get physical with receivers. Ronnie Harrison has emerged this year as a quality safety after flaming out with the Jaguars the previous couple of season. Terrance Mitchell is also another quality corner for the Browns. Outside of that, there isn't much that is spectacular for the Browns after their pass rush. The Eagles have healthy weapons in Goedert, Reagor, Fulgham, Ward, Alshon, Sanders, and Scott to take advantage of holes in the middle of their defense. The Browns also start Andrew Sendejo at Safety, who all Eagles fans should be familiar with as he sucks. News broke on Friday that Myles Garrett is on the COVID list and won't play on Sunday. Hopefully Garrett will be fine; in terms of football, this is an incredible gift for the Eagles. Garrett is on his way to earning his first DPOY award and would be an absolutely nightmare for the Eagles to defend even as the OL gets healthy. The Browns pass rush could still have it's moments against the Eagles OL but given the Garrett loss, the Eagles need to be able to take advantage of the holes in the Browns pass defense. Can the Eagles suddenly shit tier starter actually play well? Can Doug remember how to be a good offensive mind?
Eagles Pass Rush vs Browns Pass Blocking
The Eagles defense lives and dies by their pass rush. They will have their full compliment of pass rushers again for this contest against a very good Browns offensive line. The major weakness for the Browns OL on Sunday will be at RT as Jack Conklin may not play. If he doesn't, the Browns would be wise to send all kinds of help that way as Brandon Graham has been having an All Pro caliber season. It is key the Eagles get pressure on Baker Mayfield when they do pass as he is one of the leagues worst QBs under pressure. Mayfield is a lot like Wentz this year: prone to mistakes under pressure with poor pocket management that puts him in trouble. The Browns have more than enough weapons in the passing game to be able to take advantage of the Eagles defense provided Mayfield has time to throw. Darius Slay will give Jarvis Landry issues but no one else should really put up much of a fight against the Browns receivers. The Eagles LBs and Safeties are also incapable of covering anything; the Browns TEs and RBs should have a field day. As always with the Eagles, as the DL goes so goes the defense as a whole.

Returning starters: 2 (plus 1 opting out of 2020 season)
The LSU offense was undoubtedly the biggest story of the 2019 season. Known for traditional ground-and-pound offenses under Les Miles, LSU ran a spread offenses with a blend of RPO and West Coast tactics. The change came with new passing game coordinator and wide receivers coach Joe Brady. Brady brought a new playbook and philosophy with the goal of getting players the ball in space. This was extremely effective, with QB Joe Burrow and WR Ja’Marr Chase setting multiple records for their respective positions.
With 2020 comes lots of replacing and rebuilding for LSU’s offense. Every draft-eligible member of the 2019 offense is now in the NFL, which simultaneously explains last year’s success and bodes poorly for 2020’s prospects. The key returners for offensive production are WR Terrace Marshall and RT Austin Deculus. LSU must replace offensive guru Joe Brady (Carolina Panthers OC), QB Joe Burrow (NFL), WR Justin Jefferson (NFL), WR Ja’Marr Chase (Opt-Out), RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire (NFL), TE Thaddeus Moss (NFL), C Lloyd Cushenberry (NFL), OG Damien Lewis (NFL), LT Saahdiq Charles (NFL), WTE Stephen Sullivan (NFL), OG Adrian Magee (NFL), WR Derrick Dillon (NFL), and backup OT Badara Traore (NFL). In total, LSU returns a starting lineman and wide receiver on offense, while losing #1 and #2 WRs, #1 RB, #1 TE, and 4 offensive line starters (plus the main backup). Here is their projected depth chart at this point.

2020 Depth Chart

Passing

338.4 yds/gm (12th), 14 TD (24th), 62% completion rate (55th), 8.5 yds/att (28th)
The focus of the Tiger’s 2019 offense was their Heisman-winning QB, Joe Burrow. In his LSU-debut, Burrow completed 57.8% of his passes for 2,894 yards, 16 TD, 5 Int, and a 133.21 passer efficiency rating. With the arrival of Joe Brady, Burrow completed 76.3% of his passes for 5,671 yards, 60 TD, 6 Int, and a 201.96 passer rating (just behind Tua’s 206.93). Perhaps the single-most improved season in history, Burrow was deadly accurate through the air, and he made good decisions to minimize turnovers and get the ball to open receivers in space. We must understand Burrow’s role and impact on LSU’s success in order to know what to expect with the inauguration of their 2020 starter, Myles Brennan.
Brennan is a RS Junior and is the only quarterback on LSU’s roster with collegiate game experience. As a backup in 2019, he was 24/40 (60%) for 353 yards, 1 TD, 1 Int, and a 137.38 passer rating. Keep in mind that Burrow played far into the end of the game, even in upsets. Brennan didn’t attempt any passes unless LSU was up by 15+, and didn’t throw any passes in the first half of any games. On third downs, Brennan completed 50% of his passes and compiled a 111.60 passer rating. It is safe to say that Brennan has not seen any meaningful snaps in college, as he only attempted 15 passes against SEC opponents, completing 33% for one TD and INT each - for a 108.08 passer rating. Brennan is untested and inexperienced, and he hasn’t shown any signs that inspire confidence in his ability. Will he be the next Joe Burrow? No. But, is he capable of winning the SEC? Also no.
Brennan has been serviceable for the Tigers this year, completing only 60.3% of his passes, although he has 11 TD to 3 Int. He averaged 370.7 passing y/g in his 3 starts this year, but he has missed LSU’s last two games due to a lower body injury (some speculate the injury is related to how much LSU fans jerked him off in the offseason). On Wednesday, Nov 4, Orgeron said Brennan is “very doubtful” to be healthy to play in the Alabama game. Most experts agree this is a great business decision for Myles.
TJ Finley started LSU’s game against South Carolina and led them to a big win. Finley went 17/21 for 265 yards, 2 TD and 1 Int. Finley’s best attribute however is his size. TJ stands 6’6” tall and weighs in at 242 lbs. He looks every inch and pound as big when watching him on the field.
After LSU’s biggest win of the season against 2-4 South Carolina, Finley got the start against Auburn in their last game. He went 15/24 for 174 yards and 1 TD and a QBR of 34.0 before being replaced by FR Max Johnson. It seems that Max Johnson’s most impressive quality is his top-notch name, which is admittedly elite. His quarterback play, however, leaves a lot to be desired. He went 13/24 for 143 yards, 0 TDs, and 2 Ints, resulting in a QBR of 20.2. TJ Finley is most likely going to start against Alabama, but one thing is for sure: If the Tigers need elite QB play to challenge Alabama, they should keep looking.

Rushing

119.6 rush yds/gm (100th), 5 TD (76th), 3.5 yds/car (93rd)
By simply looking at LSU’s total rushing defense last year, you might think their main rusher was not very good. However, Edwards-Helaire averaged an impressive 6.58 y/car and 94.27 y/g. He also played a role in the receiving game with 30.2 rec y/g. So, what’s on the horizon for LSU’s 2020 rushing campaign?
LSU had four players with rushing yards outside of EH, Burrow and Brennan, and WR Ja’Marr Chase: Soph. Tyrion Davis-Prince (295 yds), Soph. Chris Curry (189 yds), Soph. John Emery Jr. (188 yds), and Lanard Fournette (36 yds). Fournette left the team after four games in 2019.
The projected starter is Tyrion Davis-Price (DP) as he was the main backup in 2019. He is a tough runner that can be difficult to bring down, and his weaknesses are his blocking and pass-catching. He only had 8 carries in the postseason, so his experience is still a bit limited.
Chris Curry’s accomplishment is that he was the leading rusher against Oklahoma in the playoffs, rushing for 90 yards on 16 carries. On the season, Curry averaged 5.03 y/c with a long of 20 yards including 3 carries in the red zone for 10 yards (3.33 y/c). Within the program, Curry shares Marshawn Lynch’s nickname “Beast Mode” because of Curry’s strength and ability to run through tackles.
John Emery Jr. is a former 5-star recruit and the most highly touted back coming into Baton Rouge. Although he is probably the fastest and most agile back on the current roster, he struggled in pass protection and dropped several passes last year. He was also legally blind in one eye and had LASIK eye surgery this offseason. Time will tell if this has truly improved his vision.
Emery and Davis-Price have led the rushing charge for the Tigers, totaling 246 and 245 yds respectively. Neither has looked particularly impressive, especially in the absence of Clyde Edwards-Helaire.

Receiving

338.4 yds/gm (12th), 14 TD (24th), 62% completion rate (55th), 8.5 yds/att (28th)
One of LSU’s two offensive position groups with a returning starter is wide receiver. Ja’Marr Chase was the Tigers’ leading receiver in 2019, and he was expected to be the team’s best offensive (and possibly overall) player in 2020. Chase caught 84 passes for 1,780 yards and 20 TDs while averaging 21.19 y/cat and 127.1 y/g which was good for 2nd nationally. Unfortunately for the Tigers, Chase has opted out of the 2020 season and will declare for the 2021 NFL Draft, ending his time with LSU.
Marshall was third on the team with 671 receiving yards on 46 catches, behind only Chase and Justin Jefferson in receiving yards. He had 13 TD and averaged 55.9 y/g. Lots of LSU fans believe Marshall would have been just as good as Chase if he had stayed healthy. He missed games against Utah St, Florida, and Miss St with a foot fracture.
After Marshall, LSU only had one other player with more than 100 receiving yards on the season in Racey McMath. McMath is listed as a senior, though he has not started to date. He saw significant playing time last year having the sixth-most catches on the team. He only had two catches in his freshman and sophomore seasons.
Marshall has emerged as the clear #1 target this season, capturing a third of the team’s receiving yards. He has caught 9 TDs so far, which is good for 2nd in the country currently (Smitty has 8, and Waddle had 4, so expect Smitty to surpass him Saturday). Marshall also is averaging 108 receiving y/g, which is 22nd in the country (behind both Smitty and Waddle).
LSU’s #2 target is their TE, Arik Gilbert, who only has 259 yards and 2 TDs on the season. He and the rest of the receivers haven’t done enough to merit reporting.

Offensive Line

2.6 sacks allowed/gm (82nd), 7 TFL allowed/gm (33rd)
Besides QB, this is where the biggest drop-off for LSU is expected. LSU returns 2019 SR RT Austin Deculus, but must replace LT Saahdiq Charles, OG Damien Lewis, OG Adrian Magee, C Lloyd Cushenberry, and the main OL replacement Badara Traore.
Starting at LT is RS SO Cameron Wire. He is replacing Dare Rosenthall who has been suspended indefinitely from the team. Wire only played 35 snaps in 2019, so he has a lot to learn still.
JR Ed Ingram is listed as the starting LG. Ingram started 12 games at RG as a true freshman, then served a year-long suspension following his arrest for two counts of sexual assault charges and being indicted by a Texas grand jury. DeSoto Police Department would not disclose the victim’s age, but confirmed they were a minor. The case was dropped, and details are limited because the attorney general placed the case under official seal. During the suspension and court proceedings, Orgeron said “I think that maybe, maybe, if things go right, we may get him at some part of the season. I don’t know exactly when, but hopefully we get him at some part of the season…”
Starting Center is Liam Shanahan, a Harvard transfer. His backup is RS FR Charles Turner.
The starting RG is JR Chasen Hines. Hines played snaps in 10 games last year without any starts.
RT will be the only known commodity with returning SR Austin Deculus. RS FR Thomas Perry is his backup. All told, the OL starters and backups include 1 SR, 2 JR, 2 SO, and 8 FR.

Defense

Scoring Defense: 33.6 pts/g (84th)
Total Defense: 478.6 yds/g (111th)
Passing Defense: 335.2 yds/g (119th)
Rushing Defense: 143.4 yds/g (52nd)
Misc. stats: +4 turnover margin (15th), 2.8 sacks/gm (34th), 7 TFL/gm (33rd), 5 INTs (49th), 6 fum recov (10th), 6 fum forced (24th), 46.97% opp 3rd down conv. (100th), 40% opp 4th down conv. (20th), 21.2 opp 1st downs/gm (57th), opp RZ %’s – TD 57.89% (42nd), score 73.68% (22nd)
Returning starters: 4 (plus 1 opting out of 2020 season)
LSU’s 2019 defense was… not what it has been in years past. 59th is the lowest LSU’s pass defense has been ranked since 2015. They also lost several key starters from last year, most notably S Grant Delpit, OLB K’Lavon Chaisson, ILB Patrick Queen, and ILB Jacob Phillips. Projected starters DT Tyler Shelvin, and DB Kary Vincent Jr (less likely to start) have opted out of the 2020 season to prepare for the 2021 NFL Draft. That leaves the Tiger’s defense with 4 returning starters: DL Glen Logan, LB Damone Clark, CB Derek Stingley Jr., and S JaCoby Stevens. Let’s look at the roster and specific position groups.
LSU has certainly missed Dave Aranda this year. Bo Pelini has not proved up to the challenge of stopping the modern passing offenses they have faced. Bo Nix, who is completing 57.6% of his passes and has thrown 16 TDs and 6 INTs completed 75% of his passes against LSU for 3 TDs and 0 INTs. In their debut, they gave up 600+ passing yards to a QB who has now been benched in favor of a freshman. LSU fans must continually tell themselves that 2019 was worth it while plugging their ears and looking the other way in 2020.

Defensive Line

2.8 sacks/gm (34th), 7 TFL/gm (33rd)
With Bo Pelini replacing Dave Aranda as Defensive Coordinator, LSU uses a 4-3 scheme as opposed to 3-4 which was preferred by Aranda. Despite the losses of Rashard Lawrence and Breiden Fehoko, the defensive line looked to have good depth going into 2020 before Tyler Shelvin opted out of the 2020 season. Additionally, TK McLendon, who was named as the left end starter during spring camp, entered the transfer portal in August. Another blow came when Justin Thomas, the named starting right end, was announced to have left the team unexpectedly in August. Thomas was a strong contender to start at defensive end, where he started one game last year, played in five, and had a recurring role in LSU’s 3rd-down pass rush package. Shelvin was a returning starter.
That leaves former linebacker Andre Anthony as the only end with any starts. The freshman Ojulari has carved out for himself a starting role on the end ahead of Anthony. The middle of the line will feature returning starter Glen Logan. Logan is one of the leaders of the DL as the only DT with any starts.

Linebackers

46.97% opp 3rd down conv. (100th), 40% opp 4th down conv. (20th)
The linebackers are one of the most inexperienced group on LSU’s 2020 defense. After losing both OLBs and one of their two MLBs from their 4-backer scheme, only MLB Damone Clark returns to the middle of the field. Clark took over Michael Divinity’s role on the outside and provided a lot of support in that part of the field, although he was overshadowed by departures Patrick Queen, Jacob Phillips, and K’Lavon Chaisson.
Ray Thornton Jr. saw limited playing time at OLB behind Clark, Marcel Brooks, and Michael Divinity, recording only 9 total tackles on the season. He has been a regular backup on the outside.
Micah Baskerville has limited playing time, and his time in the program has earned him the start over Thornton.
Jabril Cox brings a lot of playing time and experience from NDSU, and he also played for Pelini at Youngtown State. With his playing time and experience in a winning program like NDSU, he has earned the starting job opposite Baskerville.

Secondary

5 INTs (49th), 14 PBUs (69th), 19 passes defended (68th), 54 opp passes 10+ yds (74th), 30 opp passes 20+ yds (117th), 17 opp passes 30+ yds (118th), opp passes of 40+, 50+, 60+, 70+, 80+, and 90+ (110th or worse for all), LSU is one of only 5 teams to give up a 90+ yd pass
The secondary looked to be LSU’s strongest unit on defense this year. They returned CB Derek Stingley and S JaCoby Stevens who were both regular starters last year. Todd Harris has become the starter at SS and moved Stevens to FS. Outside of Stingley, CB Cordale Flott is the only other CB with meaningful playing time. Many expected Kary Vincent to play at corner and/or safety before he opted out of the 2020 season. With Vincent’s decision to withdraw, LSU has very little depth at safety or corner.
The rushing defense has actually been average for the Tigers this year, but the passing defense has been downright abysmal. Ranking at the bottom of the NCAA in most passing defensive categories, they should not prove to be much of a challenge for Mac Jones and the Bama 10.

* for kicking and punting starts, I used 1) LSU’s official game starts or 2) number of games the team played that season if the player was the primary starter for the role

Punting

Fortunately for LSU, one of the players they have utilized the most in 2020 returns plenty of experience. Punter Zach Von Rosenberg has been the primary punter since 2017. He is averaging 47.05 yards per punt in 2020.

Kicking

The Tigers also return their placekicker, Cade York. York is 8/10 on FGs and 21/21 on XPs this year. Avery Atkins returns as the kickoff specialist. Atkins has 33 KOs with 28 touchbacks (84.85%).

Returning

Stingley has been the primary punt/kick returner. He has only had to return 3 punts this year, averaging 30.67 (48 yds came on one return). Trey Palmer has returned 6 kickoffs averaging 36.5 yds/return, including a 93 yd TD return.

Coaching

Head Coach: Ed Orgeron

Orgeron’s early coaching days included coaching the defensive line for Miami beginning in 1988. He began coaching the 1992 season in which his Canes were trounced by Alabama in the national title game, but his tenure was cut short when he was arrested following a bar fight in Baton Rouge, LA, during which Orgeron admits he was intoxicated.
“Coach O” is in his fourth full year as the head coach at LSU (he was the interim coach for most of the 2016 season). As head coach, his records beginning in 2016 are 6-2, 9-4, 10-3, 15-0. He has improved each year (until 2020). Arguably his most effective coaching decision has been hiring “Passing Game Coordinators.” He hired Joe Brady for the role in 2019, and Brady hand-crafted their offensive scheme which was extremely effective.
Coach O gained national recognition in 2019 after his team beat Alabama (his first time since coming to LSU, the first LSU win vs the Tide since the 2011 season) and he made the comments “We’re going to beat [Alabama’s] ass in recruiting. We’re going to beat their ass every time they see us. You understand me? Roll Tide what? Fuck you!” The coach then promptly finished multiple spots behind Alabama in the 2020 recruiting class, and currently trails Alabama for the 2021 recruiting class by a wide margin. His head coaching record against Alabama is 1-7, and he is 1-5 coaching against Nick Saban.
Orgeron currently has the Tigers at 2-3 for the year. After 2019, some speculated Orgeron may be on the same coaching tier as Saban with the great team they fielded. 2020 has shown that Orgeron hasn’t figured out how to deal with losing talent to the NFL, including players and coaches (something Saban encounters on an annual basis).

Offensive Coordinator: Steve Ensminger

Ensminger became the offensive coordinator in 2016 under Orgeron. His style includes a hurry-up no-huddle tempo (HUNH) and using the run-pass option (RPO). He has said that no matter what formation they line up in, he wants them to be able to throw the quick pass. We saw this implemented last year with Joe Brady coordinating the passing game. Look for a similar style and scheme in 2020. The challenge will be coming up with new routes and plays to get receivers open the way that Joe Brady managed to do.

Defensive Coordinator: Bo Pelini

Former Nebraska head coach and former LSU defensive coordinator was rehired for the DC position for the 2020 season. Pelini utilizes the 4-3 defensive scheme which includes 4 down linemen and 3 linebackers. The benefit of a 4-3 defense is that you can typically get a better push against the offensive line, resulting in better run-blocking or more pass-rush. However, since each down lineman is responsible for a single line gap, it is more vulnerable to the play-action (PA) pass. Another concern for the Tigers is that with so many departures on the defensive line, they will have a lot of inexperience having to make decisions. It also forces the defense to use a defensive end instead of a linebacker for extra pass-support.

Passing Game Coordinator: Scott Linehan

Scott Linehan will replace the biggest void on the LSU coaching staff, Joe Brady. Linehan is the product of John L. Smith, who was the last college coach he worked under. He last coached for the Dallas Cowboys, leading their passing game and serving as offensive coordinator.
We won’t know what similarities or differences Linehan’s offense will share with Brady’s, but a major difference will be the personnel available. LSU loses Justin Jefferson and Ja’Marr Chase at receiver, QB Joe Burrow, RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire, and 4/5 offensive linemen. I would expect the Tigers’ 2020 offense to look similar to 2018.

Matchups

Alabama

Alabama leads the all-time series with LSU 53-26-5, boasting a 66.1% win percentage. The largest victory belongs to Alabama, 47-3 in 1922. The longest streak also belongs to the Tide, with 11 consecutive wins from 1971-1981. Alabama recently won 8 consecutive games against LSU despite LSU being ranked in each loss, including being ranked in the top-10 five times and in the top-5 four times. LSU was shut out in three of the eight games (37.5%) including the January 9, 2012 matchup in the national championship game held in New Orleans, LA, a short 90-minute drive from Baton Rouge.
LSU’s win over Alabama last season marked the fourth victory for the Tigers over Alabama since Nick Saban came to Tuscaloosa. The Tide have enjoyed ten wins over the last fourteen seasons. The four Alabama losses had a total point difference of 18, including three of them being five points or fewer. In the same time span, Alabama has outscored LSU by 135 in the remaining games, resulting in a 117-point advantage for Alabama since 2007.
Since Nick Saban’s arrival in 2007, the early-November matchups between the Tigers and the Tide have often been competitive and tension-filled. Of the 14 Saban vs. LSU games, half have been decided by 7 points or fewer. Another 4 games were decided by 14 pts or fewer, leaving only 3 of the 14 games being won (all by Alabama) by more than two scores. The 4 LSU wins in this time span were all by 7 points or fewer. The teams have gone to overtime thrice, and surprisingly the visiting team has won all three times (Alabama 2, LSU 1). On a related note, Alabama has been dominant in the supposedly-daunting “Death Valley” holding an all-time 28-9-2 record in Baton Rouge, as well as winning 5 of the last 6 games there, including the last 4.
Although Alabama and LSU have not been rivals historically, the series has been split since 2000, with Alabama holding a close 11-10 series lead. Also, since Bear Bryant retired, Alabama has controlled the series 22-15-1. Despite the recent competitiveness of the “rivalry,” a 2009 poll of SEC fans revealed that Alabama fans mostly did not consider LSU to be a rival, while over 60% of LSU fans singled out Alabama as their most bitter rival. This no doubt stems from the fact that Nick Saban previously coached at LSU from 2000-2004. Saban compiled a 48-16 record at LSU while winning LSU’s second ever national championship, and their first in 45 years. Saban left LSU to try his hand at head coaching in the NFL. He found success hard to come by, and decided to return to coaching college. LSU did not want Saban back, instead preferring to keep then-coach Les Miles, so Saban took the best job on the table- Alabama. For some reason, LSU took this as a personal insult of the highest order and have hated Saban and Alabama ever since. The Tigers have only managed to beat Saban’s Alabama in Baton Rouge once.

Ole Miss

Ole Miss is undoubtedly LSU’s longest-standing and most significant rival. The Tigers lead the Landsharks all-time 63-40-4, but recent history is even more lopsided as Ole Miss has only managed to beat LSU five times since 2000.
In the “Magnolia Bowl,” LSU and Ole Miss have produced some exciting rivalry games. Probably the most famous was 1959’s “Cannon’s Halloween Run” in which #1 LSU’s Billy Cannon had an 89-yard punt return TD late in the game, breaking 7 tackles en route to what would be the game winning score. On Ole Miss’s ensuing drive, they made it all the way to LSU’s 1 yard line, but were stopped as time expired. The teams would have a rematch in the Sugar Bowl (effectively the national championship that year) and Ole Miss routed the Tigers 21-0. This would not be the last time LSU would lose a national championship 21-0 in the Sugar Bowl in a rematch to a team they narrowly beat in the regular season.

Arkansas

Arkansas has been a traditional rival for LSU. The two first played in 1901 in Baton Rouge, with LSU winning 15-0. They played until 1936, but the series stopped until 1991 when Arkansas joined the SEC and defeated LSU in Fayetteville 30-6. Overall, LSU holds a 41-22-2 lead in the series.
The LSU-Arkansas winner takes home “The Golden Boot” trophy, or just “The Boot.” This is because the trophy, which outlines the states of Louisiana and Arkansas, forms what looks like a boot. The 175 lb, 4” tall trophy is made of 24-karat gold.

Tulane

LSU’s oldest rival is found in New Orleans, LA. The Tulane Green Wave first played LSU in 1892. LSU and Tulane were each members of the SIAA from 1899, the Southern Conference from 1922 to 1932, and charter members of the SEC from 1932 to 1966. The matchup is known as the “Battle for the Rag,” with LSU referring to it as the Tiger Rag, and Tulane calling it the Victory Flag. The flag shows each school’s logos divided diagonally with the Seal of Louisiana in the center.
While the series was somewhat competitive to begin with LSU leading 23-18-5, the Tigers have gone 45-4-2 since, including winning the last 18 matchups. LSU leads the all-time series 69-23-7. The teams met on the field once from 1997 to 2005, but they renewed the series in 2006. After their 2009 matchup, LSU offered Tulane to either play the remaining games in Baton Rouge or end the series early for a small payout. Tulane took the buyout deal and the teams have not met since.

Mascot

Perhaps one of the most famous college mascots is LSU’s Mike the Tiger. Traditionally, Mike is a Bengal tiger, although the last three iterations have been mixed-breeds. Mike VII is a Bengal-Serbian mix. LSU adopted the tiger as mascot referencing the Louisiana-native troops in Robert E. Lee’s Army of Northern Virginia in the civil war, as they were known as “the Tigers.” LSU’s may be the only SEC mascot to pay homage to confederate nostalgia since Ole Miss rebranded themselves as the Admiral Ackbars Landsharks.
Each Mike has generally been in good hands in Baton Rouge, as LSU’s vet school is exceptional. A new, 15,000 square foot habitat was created for Mike in 2005 for $3 million. . He can be seen eating, sleeping, roaming, or playing on any given day in his home on campus.
According to legend, LSU will score a touchdown for every one of Mike’s roars on game day. Mike VI and Mike VII have come under scrutiny for not roaring enough on Alabama game days.

Jerseys

The current style of jerseys were introduced by head coach Paul Dietzel in 1957. While it is customary for the home football team to wear their primary color and the visitor to wear white, LSU also prefers to wear white jerseys for both home and away games. From 1983 to 1994, the NCAA mandated visiting teams to wear white. From 1994-1999, LSU often wore gold in lieu of purple due to then-head coach Gerry DiNardo’s understandable dislike of the color purple. In 1995, the NCAA changed the rule to allow the home team to wear white with visitor’s prior approval. In 1997, the SEC ruled that the home team can wear their color of choice without consent of SEC visiting teams. While LSU wears white to home games, they occasionally wear purple or gold similarly to how other teams have a white-out or black-out game.
Nick Saban and Matt Mauck led the Tigers to a national title in 2003 with Mauck wearing No. 18. The No. 18 jersey “became synonymous with success on and off the field as well as having a selfless attitude.” Each season, a player is chosen by the coaching staff to wear the No. 18 jersey.

Other traditions

Tiger stadium has two defining characteristics on the field that contrast from most other colleges. First, the field displays all 5-yard line numbers on the field instead of just the 10-yard line numbers. Only the 10-yard lines have directional arrows, however. Second, Tiger stadium features “H”-style goal posts instead of the more popular “Y” style. This is allegedly to double players’ chances of injury due to impact with the posts.
About an hour before kickoff, the players, coaches, band, and cheerleaders march down a hill to the North of the Stadium. Ironically, this is called Victory Hill despite the tradition preceding many, many losses.
Night games in Tiger Stadium have become iconic in Baton Rouge. Statistically, LSU has performed better at home during night games. According to LSU’s 2016 Media Guide, LSU was 320-105-13 (.745) in night games through the 2015 season. Unfortunately for the Tigers, LSU is 0-4 in night games in Tiger Stadium against Saban’s Crimson Tide.

2020.11.07 03:19 Odd_Doctor_139 1 Round Mock Draft

1 NYJ Trevor Lawrence QB Clemson
This should be obvious I think Sam Darnold could still become a decent quarterback but not in New York and not with Adam Gase. Unfortunately for Jets fans and Trevor Lawrence I think Gase will be back as Joe Douglas has made some interesting comments to the press lately.
2 NYG Gregory Rousseau DE Miami
This pick might be a bit of a surprise but after drafting both Andrew Thomas and Matthew Peart I don’t see them taking an offensive tackle. I don’t think there is a corner who is worth taking at 2 but Rousseau has the potential to be a terror in New York.
3 Jax Trey Lance QB North Dakota State
I think that Jacksonville has to go QB here even though I like Gardner Mineshew. I also think they fire Doug Marrone and want to pair a new quarterback with a new coach.
4 MIA Micha Parsons LB Penn State
Miami is gonna get arguably the best player in this draft and a versatile linebacker who should be able to do a lot in Brian Flores defense. He can also be the defensive leaders in Miami for years to come.
5 DAL Patrick Surtain II CB Alabama
Dallas is gonna have a couple of free agent corners this year and I think they keep Jordan Lewis for a cheaper price than what Chidobe Awuzia is gonna cost. At least this way they will have 3 talented corners in Lewis last years second round pick Trevon Diggs and Surtain.
6 ATL Justin Fields QB Ohio State
This was a hard pick to make because Atlanta has so many holes on defense but I think there new head coach is gonna be an offensive guy who wants his own quarterback not to mention Matt Ryan isn’t getting any younger or cheaper.
7 WFT Penei Sewell OT Oregan
The Football Team just missed out on Justin Fields but if I was them I would be weary about drafting another Ohio State quarterback anyway. So they are getting a rock solid tackle who can keep whoever there quarterback is upright for the next decade.
8 LAC Alex Leatherwood OL Alabama
The Chargers just missed out on a Oregon reunion between Herbert and Sewell but one thing is for sure Sam Tavii should not be the left tackle for Herbert. Also if Leatherwood doesn’t work out at tackle he is versatile enough to kick in to guard.
9 NE Kyle Trask QB Florida
This pick is a surprise but between Cam Newton Jarrett Stidham and Bryan Hoyer the Pats don’t hear a good qb. Trask is the kind of gritty tough minded player that Bill Belichek loves to coach.
10 MIN Wyatt Davis OG Ohio State
Another draft another pick the Vikings spend on the offensive line. Eventually they will find good players and Davis is one of them.
11 Cin Jaylen Mayfield OT Michigan
Just like Minnesota the Bengals line is terrible outside of Jonah Williams. If Joe Burrow is gonna be a successful quarterback it starts with staying upright.
12 Shaun Wade CB Ohio State
Shaun Wade is the latest in the long line of Buckeye corners who is gonna be successful on the NFL. I also think he has the talent to be a good outside corners I pair with Donte Jackson and a very good to elite slot corner.
13 DET Ja’marr Chase WR LSU
Mark the date something finally goes right for the Lions. With all of there receivers not named Quintez Cephus set to hit free agency Detroit gets a stud in Chase who can pair nicely with Kenny Golladay. I also think Chase might fall in the same way former teammate Justin Jefferson did last year.
14 DEN Dylan Moses LB Alabama
If there is one thing Vic Fangio knows it’s the value of a good linebacker. Also after spending almost all of last years picks on offense it’s time for John Elway to invest some youth and playmaking into the defense.
15 SF Zach Wilson QB BYU
The 9ers need a new quarterback because of Jimmy Gs injury history and inconsistency. Kyle Shannahan is gonna get a dynamic player with good accuracy and a high IQ that can improve under Shannahan.
16 MIA Travis Etienne RB Clemson
Miami needs to put some dynamic talent around Tua. Myles Gaskin could develop but Etienne is already a great back who has the potential to be able to take over a game.
17 LV Aidan Hutchinson DE Michigan
Despite having the toughest schedule the Raiders are in a great spot. Unfortunately they are also in a tough division that has two good qbs and Drew Lock. They need to improve there pass rush after reaching for Clelin Ferrel a few years ago.
18 CHI Jay Tufele IDL USC
The Bears need a QB but they can get one later. They also need some youth on defense as Khalil Mack and Akiem Hicks aren’t gonna be around forever. With Tufele he could learn from Hicks then take over in a year or two.
19 PHI Devonta Smith WR Alabama
The Eagles miss out on Dylan Moses by 5 picks but even if he was there I’m not sure he would be the pick anyway. So with Philly way over the cap Desean Jackson could be a cap casualty JJAW hasn’t panned out and it’s to early to tell if Jalean Reagor is gonna pan out. Not to mention they have been trying to trade Alshon Jefferey sine forever it seems like. So here is a dynamic talent that can be a number 1 receiver from day 1.
20 CLE Tyson Campbell CB Georgia
It seems as though things are finally looking up for the Browns. But there defense can still be improved and with no pass rushers worth taking the go to Campbell who I think is gonna be a riser as the draft nears.
21 JAX Dillon Radunz OT North Dakota State
The Jags need to improve at the tackle spot due to a lack of talent and Cam Robinson is a free agent and as we’ve seen the quickest way to ruin a qb is to not protect him.
22 Indy Quincy Roche DE Miami
This one one of the hardest picks I had to make as Indy has a great roster with not a lot of holes and a surprisingly amount of depth. Now every other mock draft I’ve seen has a qb in this spot but there isn’t one worth taking. So here is a replacement/understudy for Justin Houston who is not as good as he once was.
23 ARI Jaylen Waddle WR Alabama
Another stud receiver to the Cards is sure to make both Kyler Murray and Kliff Kingsbury very happy. If this pick happens the Cards offense might be unstoppable.
24 BAL Rondale Moore WR Purdue
Like the previous pick a stud receiver going to a great offense just makes sense. Even though Morre has a bit of an injury history the potential outweighs the risk in my opinion.
25 GB Kyle Pitts TE Florida
I considered a receiver here but Green Bay’s front office hates Aaron Rodgers for some reason. So here is a tight end who can be a reliable talent for Rodgers and eventually Jordan Love.
26 TEN Trey Smith IOL Tennessee
The Titans grab a local product who can help open holes for Derrick Henry. He might be able to play a little tackle to if Isaiah Wilson doesn’t stop being a dunce in his everyday life.
27 NO Asante Samuel Jr CB Florida State
The Saints are way over the cap and might have to make some tough roster cuts to get under it. Here they take a talented corner to pair with Marshon Lattimore.
28 BUF Pat Freiermuth TE Penn State
The Bills have a chance to be a great team for a long time. They have an elite defense a solid offense and a great head coach. They also play in a division that is up for grabs. So here is an offensive piece to take advantage of the speed that Diggs And John Brown have.
29 Christian Barmore IDL Alabama
This was another tough pick as this is a team playing at a high level in offense and defense. So here is a young d linemen for them to develop because between Suh and William Gholston they could use some depth and youth.
30 KC Creed Humphrey IOL Oklahoma
This pick is about protecting the 100 million dollar man. Humphrey is a plug and play guard who can step in for the injured Kelchi Osemele.
31 NYJ Sam Cosmi OT Texas
The Jets have a great tackle in Meckhi Becton. Here is a player to play right tackle where George Fant and Chuma Edoga haven’t inspired much confidence.
32 PIT Liam Eichenberg OT Notre Dame
This pick came down to 3 players who all fill needs. I was stuck between Eichenberg, Najee Harris, or Mac Jones. Ultimately I went with Eichenberg who I admit is a reach but with Villanueva set to hit free agency and a lot of other Steelers needed to be resigned they go tackle.

Maps and Mods required:

We will be fighting on a TIOW mod map. No download required.

Situation:

The world of Progania V has been the battlegrounds of a 60 year long war between Imperial forces and a splinter group of a major ork Waaagh! The fighting has been intense and the war has been at a stalemate for 30 years now.
Within recent years, volcanic activity on the planet has been increasing. Increasing to the point where many volcanoes on the planet are almost constantly spewing forth ash and magma. The ash being spewed forth has begun to completely cover the planet, lowering temperatures in less volcanic regions and putting the planet into a never ending night. Day time is essentially twilight with very small amounts of sunlight breaking through the ash.
The Cadian 776th Regiment has been deployed to Progania V to help shore up defenses in the war. 2nd Company of the 1st Battalion has been deployed to an island containing refineries that help fuel Imperial Navy ships in orbit. There is a major Ork presence on the island and everyday, they throw themselves at the local defenses from "sunup" till "sundown"

Mission:

Our company has been deployed to the area to replace a group that has been in these positions for almost a year now. According to them, Orks are constantly throwing themselves at their defenses with the biggest attacks happening in the center of the line. We have been deployed to the center right of the line in an old ruins that has seen most of fighting. The Orks are expected to hit us from the ruins of an old city to the North, a forest to our Northeast and an old hab-block to our East.
The old company has left behind heavy weaponry in the buildings for us to use. There are Multi-lasers, Lasercannons, Autocannons and AT emplacements scattered throughout the various buildings along the edge of town. Seeing as how they are headed to a relatively quiet area of the planet, they probably wont need them.
Company command has seen fit to attach a mortar battery consisting of 3 mortars (codename Firestorm) to us. They should have a near endless supply of rounds so use them as you see fit.

Objectives:

Map of the AO: https://imgur.com/a/vHbQQSv
Hold your ground and do not let a single Ork pass.

Friendly Forces:

2nd platoon has been deployed to our left flank and 1st platoon is on our right. We should have no issues with any Orks getting around our position to hit us in the rear.
There is a platoon of friendly Leman Russes stationed behind us and 2nd platoon. If the situation becomes untenable, then they will roll in to prevent a breakthrough.

Civilians and ROE:

The planet has been at war for 60 years. There is no such thing as a civilian here.

Enemy Forces:

The enemy is almost completely infantry based. Intel suggests that they may have a few trucks here and there for transport but there is very little heavy weaponry. That doesn't mean we should lower our guard. More than once have the Orks miraculously made a Mekk out of a pile of scraps and some paint.

Support and Equipment:

Firestorm is dedicated to our platoon with 3 mortars and almost limitless ammunition. We should have their undivided attention for the whole day.
If things get really hairy a platoon of 4 Leman Russes will move to our position and prevent a breakthrough. This is only in the most dire of circumstances.

Isla Duala https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=714149065

Medical System changes

None, just base setup as always (no fractures, no wound reopening).

Briefing

Situation

Intel
Molatia and Afrene, the two constituent nations of Isla Duala, are on the brink of war. Molatia, the northern state, has repeatedly violated the territorial sovereignty of Afrene. The latter, due to an economic downturn, has been unable to respond adequately. Border skirmishes have been going on for years, but recently, Molatia has stepped it up quite a bit, with the help of Takistan.
We (the Irish Army under UN mandate) have been tasked with pushing back on Molatia's efforts, and to investigate the situation in the western part of the islands.
Intel suggests that Molatia has recently received a shipment of heavy equipment.In an effort to keep it from prying eyes, it was delivered to the harbor north of Kwako.

Enemy Forces

Enemy's Composition, Disposition, Strength

Basically all border troops are fielded by the Takistan National Army (TNA). Molatia itself has limited, but well-equipped forces that may provide QRFs.
Enemy's Capabilities & Limitations
The TNA has not gone all-out here. While there are sightings of T-72Bs, BTRs, BMPs and the occasional air asset, we do not expect any artillery, nor attack helicopters or ground attack jets.
Enemy's Most Likely Course Of Action (EMLCOA)
It is unlikely the Molatians (or the TNA) will push hard to the south. Their approach so far has been one of slow and deliberate territorial gain, with an emphasis of reinforcing said gains quickly, typically in the form of garrisoned buildings, barricades and the like.

Friendly Forces

Higher's Mission & Intent

We need to halt and possibly reverse the creeping territorial gains the Molatians have made. Further, we need to find out how heavily involved Takistan is, and if the rumors of imported heavy equipment, especially artillery, are true. Finally, we need to check up on the IDAP camp, since they have gone incommunicado.
Same Echelon
Under the umbrella of a UN force in Afrene, the US Army has provided an attachment of three mortars (callsign LOBSTER). Their maximum range has been indicated by a blue circle on the mission maps. Access to the to the mortars is restricted to the CO and 2IC/FO. Targets must be provided as a grid reference.
The Brits have provided an FV510 Warrior for armored support.

Civil/Terrain considerations

Due to the ongoing conflict, the civlians have fled the area or been evacuated. Everyone in the AO is either a soldier under UN mandate (BLUFOR) or an enemy combatant, with the exception of IDAP personnel, who are likely keeping to their compound.
Due to the years-long and ongoing hostilities between Molatia and Afrene, you may encounter mines and UXO. IEDs are unlikely.

Mission

Overview Map Objective Detail map
Our primary mission is to clear and search the harbor north of Kwako (objective GRANITE). There is an IDAP camp nearby. The organisation has asked us to check up on said camp and render assistance if needed, since they have fallen out of communication, this is objective OAK. After clearing GRANITE and helping at OAK as needed, we are to scout objective SLATE, an old airfield. Satellite imagery and drone footage suggest the Molatians (and possibly the TNA) have built out said airfield and are preparing to use it as a staging point for attacks on Afrene. If possible, clear and take the airfield with the infrastructure intact. This objective is subordinate to both GRANITE and OAK.

Execution

Commander's Intent

  • Move north across the peninsula and cross over to the Vestinga island near either Djolan or Simbala, then continue to Afrene territory near Kwako.
  • Search and the harbowarehouse facilities north of Kwako (primary objective GRANITE)
  • Check up on the IDAP camp (secondary objective OAK)
  • Scout and clear Swonto airfield (tertiary objective SLATE, optional)
  • Clear enemy presence as you proceed. Positions don't need to be garrisoned/held, just cleared.

Logistics

We have an attached team of engineers to help with rearefuel/repair, as well as clearing mines and UXO. Note that minefields/UXO only need to be cleared if they impede your mission. Everything else just needs to be marked for later clearing.

Vehicles

Besides the Warrior (HITMAN) and the engineering vehicle (RATCHET, Trakker 6x6, RRR vehicle), you have:
  • 2x M1240A1 (Hunter) with M2s
  • 2x M1240 (Hunter), unarmed
  • 2x M1151A1 (up-armored Humvee), one with Mk19, one with M2
  • 3x M1151A1 (up-armored Humvee), unarmed. One is the designated PLT Command vehicle.
Assignment of vehicles to squads is up to the CO. All Humvees and Hunters seat 4-5 people and already contain additional supplies.

Slotting:

CO, squad leaders and special roles (all roles in bold letters) should join the teamspeak 30 minutes before the event starts for planning the mission.

2020.10.14 23:00 AndyJPuente Biggest 2020 NBA free-agency, draft and trade decisions for the Dallas Mavericks:

Source: https://www.espn.com/nba/insidestory/_/id/28953850/biggest-2020-nba-free-agency-draft-trade-decisions-all-30-teams
Offseason focus
Draft assets
Cap space breakdown
Team needs
Extension eligible: Tim Hardaway Jr., Jalen Brunson and Justin Jackson (rookie)
Free-agent status

The four-year approach

Dallas has taken a four-year approach to constructing its roster.
The foundation was built in 2018 when the Mavericks made a draft-night trade for Luka Doncic. Seven months later, Dallas added All-Star Kristaps Porzingis and starting guard Tim Hardaway Jr. from the New York Knicks in exchange for three players and two future first-round draft picks.
Although Porzingis would sign a $158 million max contract last offseason, the Mavericks set a financial budget that allowed them to remain competitive now but also with an eye toward the summer of 2021.
Dorian Finney-Smith, Dwight Powell, Boban Marjanovic, Seth Curry, Delon Wright and Maxi Kleber signed contracts with starting salaries of $11 million or less, with only Curry, Kleber and Powell extending into 2022-23. The $9.0 million Kleber contract is non-guaranteed.
These contracts align with the rookie-scale contract of Doncic. The All-NBA guard is under contract for the next two seasons and will not see his salary adjusted (with an expected max extension) until 2022-23.
The $10.1 million Doncic salary in 2021-22 along with the relatively low salaries of their role players allows the Mavericks to go big-game hunting in the offseason of 2021. The Mavericks are likely to be conservative this offseason with 14 players under contract. They project to have $30 million in cap space next year, just $5 million short of a contract for a max player with 7-9 years of service -- one like MVP and Defensive Player of the Year Giannis Antetokounmpo.
Regardless of which players are actually available, Dallas will need to focus on improving its 18th-ranked defense. Finishing as the No. 7 seed and losing in the first round while having the highest-rated offense of all time is proof of that.
Porzingis can be part of the solution there. But if he continues to have health problems, Dallas' cap flexibility and Doncic playing at an All-NBA level might not matter. After missing part of 2017-18 and all of 2018-19 because of a torn left ACL, Porzingis was recently diagnosed with a meniscus tear in his right knee.
The forward has $131 million left on his contract.

The player option of Tim Hardaway Jr.

Hardaway has proved that he was more than a salary-cap dump when he was acquired from the Knicks along with Porzingis. In the 71 games this season, including 58 starts, Hardaway averaged 15.8 points while shooting 39.8% from 3 range.
The economics of the NBA this offseason will likely see him opt into his $19.0 million contract for 2020-21. Remove the Miami Heat (who are preserving cap space for 2021) and the Knicks (a third New York stop for Hardaway is unlikely) and we have only three teams -- Atlanta, Charlotte and Detroit -- with cap space in excess of $19 million.
Hardaway Jr. is extension-eligible if he opts in, but a new contract -- even on a team-friendly basis -- would carve into Dallas' 2021 cap space.

The draft: Two picks in the top 31

The Mavericks nearly have two first-round picks in October: their own first-rounder (No. 18) and the Warriors' second (No. 31).
While they could keep the picks, both draft assets will give the front office multiple options to consider in the next six weeks:
  1. Trading out of the first round for a future first-rounder to replace one of the picks lost in the Porzingis trade
  2. Can combining Nos. 18 and 31 in a trade get you into the top 15?
  3. Trading No. 31 to acquire multiple seconds from a team like Philadelphia, which holds Nos. 34 and 36

The $9.3 million midlevel exception

If the 2019 draft is an indicator, a portion (up to $1.5 million) of the Mavericks' midlevel exception will be used to sign their second-round pick. The exception will be needed if the Mavericks offer a contract that is more than two seasons. Last year, 16 of the 18 players selected in Round 2 signed for at least three seasons.
Because there is a priority on cap space for 2021, what remains of the midlevel ($7-8 million) will likely be used to sign a player or two to a one-year contract (such as Trey Burke) or in the buyout market after the 2021 trade deadline.
If Hardaway and Willie Cauley-Stein opt into their contracts and the Mavericks keep both draft picks, they will have one open roster spot.

The Mavericks have their own first-rounder this season but will send New York an unprotected first-rounder in 2021.
Two years later, Dallas will send a top-10 protected first-rounder to New York.
If the pick is not conveyed, New York would receive a top-10 protected first-rounder in 2024 or 2025.
The pick turns into a 2025 second-round selection if not sent in any of the three years.
Here's how ESPN's Jonathan Givony and Mike Schmitz have Dallas selecting in October:

2020.09.30 19:05 boanerges77 Best Coaching Fits

Wanted to give some thoughts on which coaching candidates fit best with each team that is likely to be needing a new head coach at this point. This isn't to say your team will fire your head coach. Do recall that the Titans were like 2-4 before turning things around and making it to the AFC Championship Game, so there is still plenty of time for your beloved head coach to get things going. Besides, with no preseason, these games really don't count right? This is merely just some speculation about if your team fires a head coach, who would make sense.
So, here's how I would assign things if it were up to me.

Atlanta Falcons

Dan Quinn was a hot seat candidate in 2019, and things haven't exactly improved, with back-to-back blown leads against Dallas and Chicago in recent weeks. If Quinn can't get things turned around, Atlanta may very well be ready to make the change, firing Dan Quinn. Right now, the Falcons are giving up 460 yards per game, good for 31st in the league, and 350 yards per game passing, also 31st. They need to get that defense revamped. A new coach will at least have the benefit of DT Grady Jarrett and LB Deion Jones, along with CB A.J. Terrell, who has acclimated pretty well so far, posting the highest PFF grade for the Falcons defense last week.
If Quinn is fired mid-season, the Falcons will probably hand things over to Raheem Morris, even as the defense struggles. Assuming Morris doesn't get it sorted out, I believe the best candidate for the Falcons to consider would be Colts defensive coordinator Matt Eberflus. Some may ask why not the more well-known 49ers DC, Robert Saleh? My answer there would be that Saleh's defensive scheme draws its roots from the defensive scheme that Dan Quinn ran in Seattle, which led to him getting the Falcons job. Simply, the Falcons need a new defensive perspective, and while Saleh would bring a lot of energy, Eberflus remains one of the hidden gems in the coaching carousel.
After originally agreeing to join Josh McDaniels in Indy, Eberflus remained on after McDaniels backed on. Now serving as Frank Reich's defensive coordinator, Eberflus turned around the Colts defense quickly, finding success with guys like Darius Leonard. Through Week 3 of the early NFL season, the Colts currently sit 1st in yards per game, 4th in rushing yards per game, 1st in passing yards per game, 1st in points per game, and 3rd in turnovers with 7 total.
While it's been a fairly easy schedule so far, only facing Kirk Cousins, Sam Darnold, and Gardner Minshew at quarterback so far, it's a very promising start for the Colts. If they can continue to put up great results, Eberflus will most definitely be a top tier coaching candidate, and I like his fit with Atlanta quite a bit.

Chicago Bears

The Bears may have found the QB they've needed in Big D*** Nick, after he replaced Mitch Trubisky and orchestrated a comeback win, throwing for 3 touchdowns on the day. If Foles can recapture some of the magic that took him all the way to the Super Bowl in Philly, Nagy would likely save his job. Even if he doesn't, I think there's a good chance that Nagy stays on for at least one more season, perhaps working with a new rookie QB like Trey Lance.
If Chicago fires Nagy, however, they'll still probably want to focus on the offensive side of the ball, as their defense has not been the problem for them. Instead, a new coach would also mean a new QB, and finding a good pairing there would be the most important piece for the Bears franchise to return to the playoffs.
One coach who I think would work incredibly well in Chicago, especially if paired with a guy like Trey Lance, would be Titans offensive coordinator Arthur Smith. Smith made the decision to bench QB Marcus Mariota in favor of Ryan Tannehill in 2019, and it ultimately turned around the season for Tennessee. Since that week swapping in Tannehill, the Titans offense ranked 1st in yards per play, 1st in red zone efficiency, 2nd in third-down percentage, and 4th in scoring. Short to say, Smith's wide zone/play-action attack was exactly what a strong defensive team like Tennessee needed to turn things around. I think Smith could have a similar effect on the Bears, especially with a new QB.

Detroit Lions

Matt Patricia may have bought himself out of an early season firing with a win over the Cardinals, but he just his 10th win as Lions head coach...in year 3. Unless he can show that Detroit has turned the corner by upsetting the Saints this weekend, it's likely that Detroit will be in the head coaching market this offseason.
The big question for the new regime would be the future of QB Matthew Stafford. He's a very talented QB, one who has largely been wasted with the inept management of the team and franchise. Stafford will be 33-years old next season, old enough to consider moving on, but young enough to see if a new coach can get 3-4 more quality seasons out of him. I think in either scenario, Bills offensive coordinator Brian Daboll would be a fantastic match for Stafford or a new QB in Detroit.
At this point in the season, Daboll has helped turned QB Josh Allen from raw upside into an MVP candidate, as the Bills offense has been outright dominant. And while Lions fans may cringe at the fact that Brian Daboll has experience in New England, the difference here is that Daboll has actually found success away from Belichick and the Patriots system. While he'll need a strong defensive coordinator hire to work on rebuilding a mediocre defense, the new coordinator would at least have a decent starting point with CB Jeff Okudah, S Tracy Walker, and DE Trey Flowers. If he can do that, Daboll could get the Lions back into playoff contention.

Houston Texans

Head coach Bill O'Brien is in the midst of another 0-3 start, his second so far as Texans head coach. While it can be understandable given the incredibly difficult schedule that the Texans have played, the frustrations with O'Brien started well before this. If they falter down the road, rather than recover, it would seem likely that Houston could move on from their head coach/general manager, though it's not a given by any means, given that O'Brien still has coached some quality teams in previous years, and is only in his first full-year as the GM.
With QB Deshaun Watson running the show, along with All-Pro LT Laremy Tunsil, the Texans would likely be one of the most attractive destinations for any offensive minded coach. The perfect fit for Houston would be Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy, a coach who has received the praises of Andy Reid as a head coaching candidate from the actual press conference he was announced as the new offensive coordinator.
Some have expressed concern over what degree of influence/effect Bieniemy actually has on the Chiefs offensive success, as Andy Reid remains the offensive mastermind as well as play-caller. However, my concerns over Bieniemy would be minimal, given that he's been praised and credited for the role he plays plenty of times, as well as the fairly successful coaching tree of Andy Reid previously. While he'll still need to build up a quality OL in Houston, Deshaun Watson would thrive in a system like the one Bieniemy has helped develop in Kansas City.

Jacksonville Jaguars

The Jaguars are already in a full-scale rebuild of sorts. They've traded away players to accumulate picks (4 in the first two rounds), and cut bloated salaries to clear up cap space. The brief optimism of the Week 1 upset over the Colts was short lived however, as they were beaten soundly by the Miami Dolphins last week.
The biggest question for a new regime in Jacksonville is the fate of their quarterback position, where Gardner Minshew continues to be one of the few bright spots. There were some rumors of Jacksonville perhaps going for the Clemson duo, adding QB Trevor Lawrence with the top pick, while signing HC Dabo Swinney to call the shots. Let's assume that Dabo's off the table, Jacksonville has some options.
Personally, I really like the fit of San Francisco 49ers defensive coordinator Robert Saleh here. I think his fire and energy would bring life to the franchise. His defense thrives in San Francisco off of a deadly pass-rush, and the ability to work with first-round edge rushers in Josh Allen and K'Lavon Chaisson seems like a perfect match. He'd need to have a plan for an offensive coordinator to work with Gardner Minshew, though perhaps he could poach a promising assistant with Air Raid experience to match Minshew style.

Los Angeles Chargers

The Chargers remain a very talented team, and thus, if they end up with back-to-back seasons of double digit losses (5-11 in 2019), Lynn could be on his way out, even after a very good 2018 season. The biggest piece to the Chargers 2020 season will be figuring out the QB situation, as QB Tyrod Taylor was inadvertently injured by his own team doctors, giving rookie QB Justin Herbert the chance to step into the role sooner than expected, including a very strong debut against Kansas City.
If things falter for the Chargers over the remainder of 2020, the Chargers may be ready to find a new coach, one who can turn QB Justin Herbert into the franchise QB that LA expects him to be after drafting him sixth-overall. Personally, I think Bucs offensive coordinator Byron Leftwich would make an excellent pairing with Herbert, as the deep passing attack that Arians and Leftwich run in Tampa would fit well with Herbert's arm strength.
Provided that Leftwich can find a veteran defensive coordinator to join, not too dissimilar from the Sean McVay-Wade Phillips pairing, think there would be a lot of potential for that pairing.

New York Jets

Currently the odds on favorite for the #1 overall selection, that at least offers Jets fans some hope in the midst of the ongoing fiasco that is Adam Gase. FOX talk show host Colin Cowherd did indicate that the Jets could make the early move to fire Gase as soon as tomorrow night if they lose to the Denver Broncos, a team that will be starting its preseason QB3 in Brett Rypien.
Now, New York presents plenty of challenges in the size of the job, but the Jets have some decent pieces to build around, with OT Mekhi Becton looking strong to start the year, as well as DT Quinnen Williams already racking up 2 sacks after a fairly quiet rookie season. While Bieniemy is the hot name for just about every fan base, the reality is that he can only end up in one spot, and there will likely be better options available.
However, I think there's another name on the Chiefs staff who would be a smart move for the Jets, a franchise that needs a good leader to help build a better culture in the Big Apple. That is Chiefs special teams coordinator Dave Toub. He's one of the best special teams coordinators in all of the NFL, dating back to an incredibly successful run as the Bears special teams coordinator, featuring All-Pro returner Devin Hester and kicker Robbie Gould.
While hiring special teams coordinators is not all the rage these days, it actually used to be one of the best formulas for finding winning head coaches. They work with every part of the team, from the specialists to the DB's, LB's, WR's, and FB's who end up on coverage teams. Quoting Bill Cowher, "When you think about the special teams coach, outside of the head coach, you're the only person on staff who is speaking to the whole team. A lot of what you're doing is more about motivation than it is schematic. And as a head coach, that's what you're trying to do as well". Toub may not be the sexy pick to pair with a flashy new QB perhaps, but he very well could give the Jets the dose of leadership and culture that they need to compete for the AFC East.

Wild Cards

**These candidates aren't as nearly as well thought thru. Just trying to add some other names to the mix, though to a certain degree, I think these wouldn't be bad decisions.**
Denver Broncos - Living in Denver myself, I think there are too many Broncos fans overreacting on this one, but the NFL is not a patient place. John Elway has shown he has a short leash, after firing Vance Joseph so soon, and if Fangio sees a major drop-off, especially after Drew Lock returns, the Broncos may be in the market, perhaps for someone like 49ers run game coordinator Mike McDaniel, a rising star in the profession.
Cincinnati Bengals - Zac Taylor did not find immediate success in year one, even if he didn't have much to work with. They've been competitive so far with rookie QB Joe Burrow, and provided they remain competitive with teams, Taylor will make it to 2021. But, if things take a turn for the worse and they look like the 2-14 team we saw in 2019, a decision could be made. Perhaps reuniting Burrow with now Panthers offensive coordinator Joe Brady is the move to make in this extreme hypothetical?
Minnesota Vikings - Their defense is a disaster, and QB Kirk Cousins is looking bad right now. The Vikes just extended Mike Zimmer for another 3 seasons, so it may be too soon to fire him, but if the Vikings don't turn it around, would have to consider it. Vikings may want to consider making a run at a top college coach like Oklahoma's Lincoln Riley to give their offense the injection it needs.

Who do you like for the teams with hot seat coaches?

This mission requires JBAD and Lythium because of the Lythium map.
This will be a 3 hour mission. The It will start a half hour early and end a half hour late. Planning will be at 1800 UTC, slotting at 1815 UTC, and Mission start at 1830 UTC. Mission will roughly end around 2130.

Background

October 2009
ISAF command in Afghanistan has decided that the Superior valley in the Lythium area needs to be controlled. The Taliban has been bringing in weapons, supplies, and manpower through there for long enough. Chosin Company, 2-506 PIR (Parachute infantry regiment), 3rd IBCT (Infantry Brigade Combat Team), 101st Airborne Division have been tasked with assistance from 1-101st AR (Aviation Regiment) to air assault into the valley to set up a Combat Outpost (COP) in that area. 3rd platoon, company mortars, company medics, and attached engineers will go in to set the COP up to deter and control Taliban movements in the region.

Objectives

BLUFOR composition

3rd PLT, Chosin CO, 2-506 PIR, 3/101 AB

Enemy Composition

Intel suggests that a large Taliban force is amassing in the region. The enemy mostly consists of infantry with unarmored technicals from our intel. Be advised that the enemy does have anti air weaponry in the way of iglas/stingers and ZUs

Map

Maps of AO/ Radio table
Fire Support
-There will be a 10 minute cool down at the start. It will begin when the logistics helos take off from the airfield with 3rd PLT.

Service and support

The logistics team will be providing both supplies and manpower for the elements at the defense. If supplies are needed then the Radio Operator (Chosin 3-6R) will have to call it up over long range radio
There will be an initial supply of medical, ammo, and mortars next to the first CH-47. Make sure you load it up. Initial supplies will have to loaded in ACE inventory and after that the helos can be put into cargo mode to transport supplies. There will be no need for pallet jacks this time.

The Engineers will be using the ACE Fortify tool. You will be given a smaller amount initially and can only build in a 300m x 300m square. Basically 150m from the COP Bronze Eagle mark. I will add supplies every now and then when helos come in but not every time.
All I ask is that when building the COP make it believable. If I see anything ridiculous I.E. stairways into the sky with sandbags or anything that wouldn't make sense then supplies will be cut.
To use the fortify tool you have to self interact.

Rules of Engagement

Due to the rules set by Khrazi there has been a change in the RoE. At this time if you see a weapon on the individual you are free to engage. For any reason if you see something that doesn't look right, i.e. spotters or possible S vests, call it in and Chosin X-ray will give an update to the RoE. If it is a direct threat to life you are free to engage, but civilians are in the area. Just shooting at them to get them to leave is not authorized.

Communications

Due to the lack of long range radios in the company they will be in short supply. The following elements will have long ranges
The following will have to utilize dual banding on short range
A radio table is provided in game to make it a little easier for initial setup
For realism try to go with the callsigns while over the radio. The chosin part is not needed when using the platoon net
This mission will be utilizing a more in-depth medical system:

Changes
Remove Clear trauma after bandage
Add surgical kits to medics to be used anywhere and PAK to doctor for any full heals that may be needed
Fractures chance to 50%
Add Splints to fully heal fractures
Increase unconscious wake up chance from 5% to 15%
Anyone can give epinephrine
The Company Medics are to stay separate from squads to setup a triage and casualty collection point within the COP Bronze Eagle area

MISSION

Soldiers of the 1491st Siege Korps of Krieg, we have fresh orders for removing the Heretics in the Concretum Civitas region of Vraks. In recent months, the renegades have seized vital locations from their rightful Imperial owners. Outpost Hurricane, once a proud bastion, has become an artillery post used to shell the city itself regularly. Accoleia, a once peaceful township outside Concretum City, has been ransacked and the majority of its citzens and defenders turned into sacrifices. And finally, the blessed Refinery 02 has been seized while rearming a Warhound Titan. Said Titan, according to the Adeptus Titanicus representatives, has not yet been accessed so the machine has not yet been tainted by the agents of the warp. Your tasks are to retake these locations and purge all heretics you find. Additionally, one of the Grenadier platoons was able to spare a squad of Grenadiers. Their Hellguns and Meltagun should be ample for dealing with any particularly tough foes. Show them no mercy, show them no quarter.
OPFOR Intel: -Las and Autoguns make up the primary armament -They stole many Guard assets, so expect Wyverns, Hydras, Chimeras, and Leman Russes -There are some unconfirmed reports of Heretic Astartes, be on alert for them.
META
WHAT IS WARHAMMER 40k?
-A tabletop game that helped to define what the term "grimdark" means. It's moody, gothic, metal, ultraviolent, and there are no good guys. To quoth the box- "In the grim darkness of the 41st Millenia, There Is Only War." Humanity is surrounded by enemies on all sides, fighting vicious aliens, renegade men, and actual factual demons.
WHO ARE WE ON THIS OP?
-Members of the Imperial Guard, hailing from the planet Krieg. You are the meat for the grinder, the shield that protects mankind, you are a common man fighting the horrors of Chaos and Aliens. Guardsmen from Krieg are renowned for their love of CQB and their complete, fanatical disregard for personal safety. Most regiments have Commissars that encourage them to charge into contact. Krieg Commissars have to keep them from being overly reckless. Armed with the humble lasgun, they march into the fights others would stray from.
WHAT ARE WE FIGHTING?
-HERETICS! Those who rebel against the Imperium of Mankind are branded as Heretics, committing the grave sin of turning against the God Emperor of Mankind(He's the spooky skeleton who leads humanity). They are normal men and Space Marines, but driven to insanity by the temptations of the gods of Chaos.
WHERE ARE WE?
-A planet that acts as one big armory, called Vraks Prime. It is the largest planet in the system Vraks and is considered vitally important. This is but one battle in a ~20 year war that showcased World War 1 tactics in the year 40k.
OBJECTIVES:
Map- https://imgur.com/a/Z66znZX

  • OBJ 2- Liberate the town of Accoleia
  • OBJ 3- Secure refinery 02-B and 02-A and the Titan.

2020.07.31 07:34 kminogues Thoughts from a rewatch.

So I’m midway through season 6A, and I’ve had a few thoughts that have differed from when I finished the series years ago.
1) Compared to the other women, Carrie’s overall arc is kind of meh. Hers mainly revolves around men and not much else. Yes, I understand that sex and dating was the primary focus of the series, but the other women went through quite a few obstacles while Carrie’s biggest issue was just men.
2) They waited WAY TOO LONG to give Samantha much more substance than “the one who likes to have sex”. Think about it. Her first big storyline doesn’t occur until season 4. Everything beforehand is just centered around her liking to screw, essentially.
3) I wouldn’t have mind if Carrie ended up with Berger in the end. I actually hate how they write out and end the Berger relationship. It just felt too convenient to set up the Alexander storyline, which, of course, lead to her reuniting with Big. Speaking of...
4) Carrie’s end story didn’t feel earned. The other 3 get their happy ending (no pun intended), and it feels earned as a viewer. Watching Charlotte get her baby and happy marriage after struggling with conceiving and her failed marriage to Trey felt earned. Seeing Samantha overcome cancer and learning to love and trust after Richard broke her heart with the held of Smith felt earned. Miranda finding the balance between working woman and mother and opening up to Steve after years of pushing him away felt earned. Carrie just miraculously winding up with Big after years of making crappy decisions does NOT feel earned IMO. It just doesn’t.
5) Season 5 isn’t THAT bad. It’s definitely campy, but it’s still enjoyable. I would’ve loved to have seen what a full season would’ve turned out like had it not been truncated due to SJP’s pregnancy.
6) On the topic of Big, and this may be controversial, but he should’ve been officially written out when he moved to Napa. It just felt like the perfect ending to his relationship with Carrie. They both were at turning points in their lives, they seemed to be at a much more mature understanding of their relationship/connection as friends, and Carrie’s monologue at the end of the episode when she goes to his apartment and finds him already gone was just so beautifully said. Bringing him back just ruins all of that.
7) Charlotte was the best character.

2020.07.16 18:26 stannsmash Offseason Review Series: Day 2 - The Washington Football Team

Washington is dead, long live Washington!

Division: NFC East

2019 Record: 3-13, 4th in NFC East

Coaching Changes

As the marketing says, this is a new RivERA. Almost the entire coaching staff has been replaced, except for the running back and special teams coaches, so let's all give a hand to Randy Jordan and Nate Kaczor for being survivors of the Rivera purge. Here are the highlights:
 

Head Coach: Ron Rivera replaces interim Bill Callahan

After an 0-5 start last season, and multiple season of mediocrity, Dan Snyder finally decided to pull the plug on Jay Gruden. Interim coach Bill Callahan did a...job. The question quickly turned to who would be the newest coach of the Washington Football Franchise. Would it be current OC and potential wünderkid Kevin O'Connell? Would they somehow steal away Mike Tomlin (remember this theory?) No. Enter in: Riverboat Ron.
Ironically, the only way that Washington was able to hire him was by defeating him: in week 13 of the 2019 season, Adrian Peterson and Derrius Guice stomped through Rivera's defense to the tune of 248 yards on the ground. That was enough to seal his fate with owner David Tepper, who was vocal through the season about the panthers status of mediocrity.
While one can reflect on Rivera's tenure as mediocrity, I'd argue it is anything but. As 2-time Head Coach of the Year, Rivera lead the Panthers to 3 1st place finishes in the NFC South, including a historic 15-1 2015 season where the Panthers made it to the Super Bowl behind MVP Cam Newton. Rivera is the winningest coach in Panthers history, with an overall record of 76-63-1. However, he was not Tepper's choice, and for that as a fan I owe Tepper one.
While I would not fault Jay Gruden for all of the Redskins issues the past 5 1/2 years, he seemed destined to stay at most mediocre, never even reaching the highs Rivera has seen. Key Gruden personnel such as Kirk Cousins, Jordan Reed, Chris Thompson, Josh Norman, Josh Doctson, and more are long gone. Rivera has a brand new cast to work with, and I am excited to see it.
Rivera is a proven head coach with a long and public track record. He is known for being a big believer in a strong player-oriented team culture, and god knows this team needs some major culture help, especially in the front office. Looking at you, Mr. Snyder. GRADE: A
 

Offensive Coordinator: Scott Turner replaces Kevin O'Connell

Losing Kevin O'Connell to the Rams is disappointing, no way around it in my mind. Could the Rams get bitten in the rear and throw a green coordinator into the wind? Maybe. But out of all personnel we didn't keep, this one stung the most.
However, one must not dwell on the past too much. Enter in Scott Turner, son of Norv Turner. Turner comes over from Carolina where he was first the QB coach under his father, and then suddenly replaced his father once Rivera was fired. Some highlights of Turner include:
  • Being the Brown's receiver coach during Josh Gordon's monstrous 2013 season
  • Vikings QB coach during Teddy Bridgewater's best years
Yeah that's about it. He is young and hungry, and honestly, I am pretty happy with this choice as well. I have faith in him to develop Haskins, who is the future of the franchise as of now. Hopefully he does not fall out of favor as his father did with our favorite owner. GRADE: B+
 

Defensive Coordinator: Jack Del Rio replaces Greg Manusky

The Redskins defense in my opinion has been underwhelming in recent times, and in large part I blame Greg Manusky for this result. The Redskins defense last year ranked 27th overall, which any Washington fan will tell you is at best a slight shame and at worst a goddamn tragedy. Sure, our secondary was nowhere to be seen. Sure, we we're extremely injured a lot of the time.
But here's the worst part: our front 7 is actually really good. I mean come on: Jonathan Allen, Daron Payne, Matt Ioannidis, Ryan Kerrigan, Montez Sweat, and more should amount to one of the most potent QB rushing attacks of the year. However, the stats show that this is just not true. PFF listed us outside the top ten and in a more general sense the defense overall just seems too ooze mediocrity.
Enter in Jack Del Rio. This man has over 30 years of NFL experience, having multiple positions as both Head Coach and Defensive Coordinators in the past. While his head coaching career has not always been consistent, his defensive strengths are quite apparent. While Wade Phillips was responsible for the Super Bowl winning Broncos of 2015, we cannot forget that Del Rio groomed that defense for years prior, bringing them to the big game as well the year before. His earlier success in Baltimore and Carolina must also be mentioned, but my main point is this: Jack Del Rio is tiers above Manusky.
Del Rio and Rivera are on the same page, and switching to a 4-3 base defense with Del Rio should pay dividends to our defense, particularly our front seven. Look for a strong pass rush with Del Rio under control. GRADE: A
 

Quarterbacks Coach: Ken Zampese replaces Tim Rattay

Zampese formerly worked for the Greatest Show on Turf helping Kurt Warner, Isaac Bruce, and Torry Holt achieve offensive supremacy over the league. He worked for 12 years in Cincinnati, developing both Carson Palmer and Andy Dalton. In addition, he helped to develop Baker his rookie year under literal the dumpster fire of a head coaching regime Hue Jackson had in 2018. After seeing many of Haskins sexy throws to McLaurin, Gandy-Golden and Co. on Instagram, I feel some safety in the QB department for once. GRADE: A-
 

Head Athletic Trainer: Ryan Vermillion replaces Larry Hess

If there's one thing that reminds me of a Washington Football season, its injuries. While Washington was not the only injured team, it definitely felt like one of the worst last year. At the end of the day, the blame falls on random injury luck, proper practice, and the athletic training staff. Larry Hess had been employed by Washington for 17 years, so this move may be seen as a long time coming, especially concerning some of the particularly bad injuries of recent years.
Vermillion has rep with Rivera, as he is the former head trainer for the Panthers. While the Panthers have had some injury troubles of there own as of recently, I am still hopeful that Vermillion and his staff can help the situation over here. GRADE: B

Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie CB UFA
Wendell Smallwood RB UFA

Donald Penn OT UFA
Vernon Davis TE Retired
Key Losses:
  • Ereck Flowers: Flowers had been written off as a bust. His tenure in New York and Jacksonville were both at best mediocre, and at worst disgusting. He gave up tons of pressures, and questions about his devotion to the team were at play. However, Washington was able to reignite Flowers by transitioning him from a tackle to a guard. In this new role, he only allowed two sacks while starting all 16 games. In the end, he was able to get the best pay-day back home in Miami, and for that I cannot hold any ill-will.
 
  • Josh Norman: 5 years. $51.1 million guaranteed. $75 million total. Honestly, I believed in Josh Norman when we first signed him. Coming off an All-Pro year on a stacked 2015 Panthers roster, Norman was proud to declare himself the best corner in the whole league. If you'd ask Norman today, he may still very well agree with that assessment. However, both the film and numbers point to Norman as a one year wonder. He was never able to replicate his 2015 success here, and was barely able to follow receivers like Revis or play the zone like Sherman. I would consider this the worst Redskins free agent signing of the Jay Gruden regime, hands down bar none. At least Matt Jones gave us some 100 yard games. His best games for us were against Cody Kessler and Matt Barkley. I am glad this is over with.
 
  • Trent Williams: Oh Trent-y boy, the pipes, the pipes are calling. I am truly sad to see Mr. Williams suit up for another organization this fall, assuming there will be a football season. Trent has been one of, if not the best offensive lineman in the entire NFL since being drafted 4th overall in 2010. Even as poor football and asinine front office moves surrounded him, Trent remained grounded and supportive of Mr. Snyder's hope to win football games. However, this relationship quickly turned for the worse. I could write this whole page about the Trent Williams saga, so instead I shall link this.
Goodbye Silverback.
 
  • Jordan Reed: If you thought the Trent Williams saga hurt me, oh boy you are not ready for this. Jordan Reed was probably my favorite Washington player up until last season. I was at his first big game in 2013, and boy was it a sight to see. A 3rd round TE from Florida, Reed was a bright spot on a more distant 3-13 Washington Squad still hoping for RG3's knees to spring back to life. When Reed was on fire, he was on. In his heyday of 2015 and 2016, Reed was a top tier Pro-Bowl talent TE possessing the quickness of a WR with the strength and build of a TE. However, we all know how this story ends. In 2013, he only played 9 games due to concussions. In 2014, he hurt his hamstring twice throughout the season yet still played in 11 games. As stated earlier, 15' and 16' were the golden years, but his hamstring came back to derail almost his entire 2017 season. By last year, he had over 9 known concussions, and one can only assume his hamstring is not in good shape. This is a classic example of injuries destroying a once promising career. If you are ever in need of watching some electrifying tight end plays, check this out, I promise you will not regret it. Thank you Jordan!

Mike Liedtke OG Buccaneers 1 year $750k
Key Additions:
  • Kendall Fuller: We are proud to welcome our 2016 3rd rounder and new Super Bowl Champion back to DC. Fuller has proven himself as a formidable slot cornerback, and should be a day 1 starter immediately. In fact, I could see us playing him on the outside if need be, as our secondary will become stretched dry rather quickly. If we can trade for Malik Jefferson, we could finally have all pieces of the Alex Smith trade back on the roster, including Alex Smith himself (hang in there buddy :( ).
 
  • Thomas Davis: A 3x Pro Bowler and bonafide former team leader of the Carolina Panthers, Thomas Davis is a welcome addition to our locker room. While at age 37 he may not start or play the most downs, his presence and familiarity with Rivera lends kindly to helping younger defensive players adjust and learn the new system.
 
  • Ronald Darby: Darby has never played a full 16 game season, and the past two seasons in particular seem to be injury ridden. However, our secondary is in need of a #2 to step up behind Fuller and if Moreau cannot make a leap then Darby better be a frog. This one year, prove-it deal will show whether or not Darby is ready to play with the big boys now.

Aaron Colvin CB 1 year $1 mil, $137.5k guaranteed
Brandon Scherff OG 1 year $15.03 mil guaranteed (franchise tag)
Important Resigns:
  • Jon Bostic: The former 2nd rounder has bounced around the league since 2013, but with Reuben Foster tearing his ACL in training camp last year, Bostic was thrust into the starting LB slot. While far from perfect, Bostic played surprisingly well last year, recording 105 tackles, a sack, and a pick. It is unclear whether Bostic's ceiling is much higher then this going into year 8 of his career. The signing of Thomas Davis and an even better D-Line could help Bostic shine more as there is less pressure on him. Overall, a good team friendly extension on a starte1st off the bench quality player.
 
  • Brandon Scherff: Except for some penalty troubles, Scherff has been the most consistent offensive lineman this team has had in the past five years who is not upset at our current front office. While I am unsure if he was worthy of the Pro Bowl this past year, he is a stud OG and I am glad we have kept him his whole rookie deal. Hopefully a long-term can be worked out soon (though the deadline may have just past for franchise tagees), but keeping him on the franchise tag is far down the list of personnel issues.

Grades and Thoughts:
  • Chase Young: How much more can be said about this guy? Young was known for months to be the consensus number one talent of the draft, and that has not changed in the past months. He is a forced to be reckoned with, and putting him alongside our other D-Lineman is a scary sight. The often made comparison is that of the Bosa brothers, who both came into the league and wrecked havoc upon entry. I see Young doing the same thing, having a minimum 10+ sack season. Fear the predator y'all. GRADE: A+
 
  • Antonio Gibson: Almost every analysis I have read about Gibson describes him in one of two ways: 1) A swiss-army knife 2) A football player. While I can't disagree with either, these both seem to be big buzzwords that cable football analysis loves to float around to tons and tons of players. No matter how you describe him, Gibson's highlight real speaks for itself. Most project him into a RB role in our system, and with Chris Thompson setting sail with Jay Gruden Gibson can not pick up the slack here. If he can provide support to Peterson and Guice, great! If he could improve our dismal receiving unit, even better! I like this pick, but can also see it failing if Rivera and Turner cannot utilize him correctly. GRADE: B+
 
  • Saahdiq Charles: Using a picks here on the O-Line was a smart move, as our bench before the draft was extremely thin. Charles has been a part of one of the best O-line's in the nation at LSU, helping Clyde Edwards-Helaire run over the entire goddamn SEC. While there was a distraction of off-field issues, i.e. his six game suspension in his junior year. My understanding is that this stemmed from maturity issues and possible failed drug tests. Without these concerns, Charles would not have fallen to this round. Even with the character issue, his on the field product is fantastic, and if there was any coach to help Charles stay the right path it would be Ron Rivera. GRADE: B
 
  • Antonio Gandy-Golden: My information on Gandy-Golden and Liberty football in general is extremely limited, but the little I have seen is fantastic. At 6'4, 223 lbs Gandy-Golden is prototypical size and his highlights at Liberty reflect that. He is able to utilize is wingspan to have a large catch radius and contend for aired out balls. In addition, while his 4.6 40 yard dash may be slightly underwhelming, his speed on tape is evident and can work. As the receiver competition is wide open, Gandy-Golden can easily become the number two receiver on this squad if he puts in the work. And according to social media, it appears he is trying. GRADE: A
 
  • Keith Ismael: Another offensive linemen, but I struggle to see Ismael in any role besides backup this year. Ismael was solid player for his three year college career, and learning behind our O-line can do him well to bring him up to NFL speed. I can see him sitting behind Rouiller most of the year, but there's always the potential for something more if he is a diamond in the rough. However, I would have liked for a TE selection here. GRADE: B
 
  • Kamren Curl: Curl seemed to be an intrenched starter for Arkansas, but it is hard to see what is exactly unique with his skill set. At 6'1, 206 lbs he has the body of a safety or even cornerback, which tracks as he played both positions in school. The most known information about him is that he was suspended for flirting with a cheerleader his sophomore season, but if that is his biggest character concern then I don't really care. In addition, he later cleared the confusion, noting that the cheerleader just wanted a photo with him. GRADE: C
 
  • James Smith-Williams: A depth signing for our defensive front, which is all good in my book. However, this deep dive into the man shows that Smith-Williams has the potential to be more then a name in DC. His injury history is very troubling, but if he can put that Big Bang Theory Sheldon brain of his to our team then I am all for it. 7th rounders are the time for risks, and Smith-Williams case is a unique one where the injuries are not as much a concern for me. GRADE: C+
 
If the only player we keep out of this draft in the next 5 years is Chase Young, it will still have been a success. However, I have a feeling that other players will make an impact here, particularly with Gibson or Gandy-Golden breaking out in a rushing or receiving competition. For Kyle Smith and Rivera's first draft, it could have gone a lot worse. The amount of BS spewed about us drafting Tua or trading down was EVERYWHERE online before the draft, so I am jus glad we didn't mess it up as bad as we could have. Overall, I'd rate this draft a B+, with the rating going higher if any of these other players break out as well.
 
 

Name Controversy

Look, both you and I know that this subject has been beaten to death, especially on this subreddit. So let us just establish the facts:
  • There has been ample push to change the name since the 1990s.
  • Dan Snyder said in 2013 that he would never change the name. "It's that simple. NEVER — you can use caps."
  • This month, Fedex, along with other major sponsors such as Nike and PepsiCo called on Snyder to change their name or face financial doom.
  • July 13, 2020 Snyder issues a press release stating the name and logo are both officially retired.
There are many more specifics and points of contention on this issue, and I think this WaPo graphic does a good job illustrating other key times that the name has been discussed or been a point of contention.
My thought? About damn time. Look, I understand that the name is offensive and have been all for changing it, but more importantly I just want us to focus on what ideally should be more pressing for this writeup: the players and the game. The politics of the name has been a distraction and disgrace to the proud men who have worn this city on their back for decades. Do not get me wrong: the actual name itself holds little meaning to me personally. However, I am younger than many fans of the team and understand the attachment some have had for their entire lives. Yet, I do not think we need to forget about Theismann, Baugh, Jurgensen, Doug Williams, Rypien, Riggins, the Hogs, and more just by retiring the name. I say, let this begin a new era in Washington football history where we can be remembered for playing a game we enjoy and love, not hurting others if we do not need to.
My personal preference for a new name as of now is Red Wolves. Maintaining the colors and HttR (Howl to the Red Wolves!) sounds nice, and the animal is theoretically indigenous to DC and the southeast US even as we may not see it commonly. If trademarks issues can settle, I believe we will hear the new name before the next season.
 
 

Sexual Harassment/Misconduct Issues

After finishing the Washington Post article today, I was left with a feeling of disgust and sadness, but not shock. Football has always been known as a "boy's club," and seeing women in positions of power in any NFL organization is not common. This is the reason why. While I do not know the situation of every front office, I would not be shocked if this is more common then one would suspect.
Now, do not get me wrong: this is disgusting and Snyder should be ashamed of himself. Letting this persist for over 20 years and clearly not giving any shits is despicable. I do not want to defend these actions in any manner. These men have done disgusting things, and the fact that Snyder has let them slide and persist for all this time is plain gross. This is a question about human decency and respect: do you respect your fellow person enough that you control what you say around them? That you think before you act? Clearly the Washington Football team has not cared about its female employees nearly enough. This is hurtful for everyone, male, female, non-binary, whatever. Please, just consider your fellow person when you are living your life. This is not hard.
 
 

Projected Lineup and Position Groups

 
Offense:
QB1: Dwayne Haskins
QB2: Kyle Allen
This should be Dwayne Haskins year to fully realize himself as a starting quarterback in the NFL. While I love watching his sexy instagram workouts, I can only get so worked up before needing to see the real deal. Since being thrown into the fray last year, we saw Dwayne progress in his decision making, but keep improvements in accuracy, particularly throwing mechanics, should be a focus this year. Even with a...subpar supporting cast (more on that later), this should be Simba's year to break out, or at least show that he is worthy of his first round draft selection.
I don't expect Allen or even Alex Smith (if he has recovered enough, which I am doubtful of) to give Haskins a run for his money. While Rivera has never stated he is sold on Haskins, do not think any other QB will start this season (barring injury.) Washington is committed, at least for this year, to Dwayne Haskins.
 
RB1: Adrian Peterson/Derrius Guice
RB3: Antonio Gibson
It is really a toss-up here whether or not AD or Guice starts, but if history is cyclical then Peterson will get the nod soon enough. I really want Guice to do well, and when he has not been injured he has done fairly well. However, I have little hope that his knees keep holding up, especially considering how much we may need to rely on our run game this year.
Peterson is old, but has shown to be consistent enough when we have a semblance of an offensive line. Our run game is decent, definitely not the worst in the league, but could be close to it. I imagine Gibson may fulfill the role of a receiver back, catching out of the backfield or taking hand-offs. He is bigger than Chris Thompson, but elusive enough that I could see some similarity in usage, especially as a rookie.
 
TE1: Jeremy Sprinkle
TE2: Richard Rogers, Logan Thomas
TE3: Thaddeus Moss
Sprinkle gets the nod here as the number one due to his experience in DC, but as the new regime is in town this is really anyone's game. Stat-wise Rogers and Thomas are relatively consistent, and while Moss has the obvious name recognition he is not even a lock to make the current roster. Sprinkle has always been subpar as a pass catcher, decent as blocker and not much else. Hopefully someone here breaks out or a trade swings through, otherwise this is one of our worst position groups on the roster.
 
WR1: Terry McLaurin
WR2: Steven Sims Jr.
WR3: Antonio Gandy-Golden/Cody Latimer
WR4: Trey Quinn
"McLaurin and then everybody else" is the best way to sum up our receiving unit. Scary Terry is once again our biggest threat and should have just as good if not a better year than 2019 as Haskins' accuracy issues (hopefully) clear up. I Like Sims Jr. as a returner, but his results as a receiver have been inconsistent. Perhaps he could be used similarly to Antonio Gibson, as I see him getting end around hand offs having big success. Gandy-Golden looks promising, but small school talent can be hard to adapt to the NFL. Latimer is a solid depth signing, and I am very unsure if Trey Quinn is worth his roster spot. While I mentioned the Tight End group being poor, this group is equal in that regard. Hopefully our run game can carry once again.
 
LT: Geron Christian Sr.
LG: Wes Schweitzer
C: Chase Roullier
RG: Brandon Scherff
RT: Morgan Moses
Scherff is a bright spot on this mediocre group, but he has had some penalty troubles and the contract situation for him is still unclear as for the future. Geron Christian should hopefully start and have improved since last year, and Schweitzer seems to be a decent signing. I like Rouiller under center for now. Saahdiq Charles and Keith Ismael could both become starters, but I have a feeling Rivera will not want to throw them into the fire early on. Overall I'd categorize this group as "eh?" and hope that our RBs can find enough holes. Haskins has also been improving his mobile game so escapability could be a needed factor with this line.
 
4-3 Defense:
LDE1: Chase Young
LDT: Matt Ioannidis
RDT: Daron Payne
RDE: Montez Sweat
This is by far the best position group on the entire roster. Calling these four the only starters is somewhat a misnomer, as Rivera and Del Rio will be frequently subbing in and out many linemen. Kerrigan and Jon Allen should still have large roles, but these are my choices based on durability and past success. Chase Young should be a stud, and I have heard him having between 10-15 sacks this year. Ioannidis has been a 5th round gem for us, leading the team in sacks last year. Payne and Sweat are both young and have shown some success, and I am hopeful they can both remain at worst starter level linemen. If our line is not getting after QBs like crazy this year, some big questions will need to be raised.
 
WLB: Cole Holcomb, Josh Harvey-Clemons
MLB: Jon Bostic, Thomas Davis
SLB: Ryan Anderson
While not as impressive as the linemen, our LB core is still a solid group. Thomas Davis brings in some leadership to an otherwise young group. Ryan Anderson will finally be playing in his natural position as a 4-3 LB. Both Bostic and Holcomb were impressive last year, though I am hoping their coverage (particularly Holcomb's) could improve. Harvey-Clemons is good for our depth, and solid rotation player. Overall not a flashy group, but should get the job done with the pressure all being up front.
 
CB1: Kendall Fuller
CB2: Ronald Darby, Greg Stroman
CB3: Fabian Moreau, Jimmy Moreland
FS: Sean Davis
SS: Landon Collins
The only unquestionable starters here are Fuller and Collins, and even Collins has been looking down as of recent. My dark-horse candidate is Jimmy Moreland, who impressed in last years preseason before being hidden or unnoticeable during the regular season. Moreau is decent, and Sean Davis is as good as Montae Nicholson ever was (especially considering his legal issues.) The loss of Quinton Dunbar is not sad whatsoever, and while his play was above-average, his robbery skills are very poor. This is the biggest whole in the defense by far, and my guess is that our team will ride or die by this secondary. If the front 7 is doing what it can to apply pressure, there will be some slack here. However, do not be surprised if next years writeup has many different players here.
 
Special Teams:
K: Dustin Hopkins
P: Tress Way
KR: Steven Sims Jr.
PR: Steven Sims Jr.
I want Tress Way to have my children so that they will be blessed with his punting genes. After a couple years of flying under the radar, Way was finally recognized in 2019 with a Pro Bowl and Second-team All-Pro nod. I am upset that Brett Kern got the nod over him for First-team, but the recognition is still appreciated. Hopkins is decent, though he does have a tendency to miss some close kicks (cough vs. Bengals in London cough), but he has provided stability to kicking for years now. Sims emerged last year as our return man, and with him bringing us our first return touchdown since 2015, I'll let him stay. Perhaps Gibson will try returning as well, who knows.
 
 

Schedule Prediction

 
Home against the Eagles: Loss
3 out of the past 4 years Washington has lost its openers, with two of those loses being against the Eagles themselves. Be ready for growing pains with a new name, coaching staff, and supporting cast. This season is not gonna get any easier.
 
Away against the Cardinals: Loss
This game could be a close one, but the Cardinals seem to be on the up with Kyler and Kingsbury. There air raid will be too much for the DC secondary, especially playing in Arizona.
 
Away against the Browns: Win
It's the Browns for god sake. Josh Norman had a game winning pick a couple years back for us against them. Sure, their QB was Cody Kessler, but different year same stories. No more Freddie Kitchens, still the same Browns.
 
Home against the Ravens: Loss
It's the Ravens. Enough said.
 
Home against the Rams: Loss
McVay and Co. should have our number here. Even without Gurley the Rams passing attack should be enough to take us down. The real downfall of our team is the secondary, that should be a pattern to notice. I'd like to believe in a Haskins comeback win here, but who knows.
 
Away against the Giants: Loss
Going into the Meadowlands, I expect a game similar to the late OT thriller of last season, with the Daniel Jones reigning supreme again. Saquon will distract our defense enough that number one receiver... Sterling Shepard will bust us up. Clap man Garett gets us again.
 
Home against the Cowboys: Win
Come on now, it's the Cowboys. Dak is overpaid, blah blah blah. Coming back home and wanting to prove ourselves after a crippling loss last week, I think Simba can pull off a nice home win here.
 
Home against the Giants: Win
Revenge game of the 2019 QBs, and this time Haskins will stay on top. Expect a nice performance from McLaurin, and Chase Young destroying Mr. Jones.
 
Away against the Lions: Win
I'm praying that Chase Young is able to get after Stafford enough that he does not pull a come back against us here, but I expect this game to be close as well. Perhaps Okudah has a pick six, why not.
 
Home against the Bengals: Win
Haskins vs. Burrow. Burrow vs. Young. A bonafide 2019 tank-bowl matchup. I feel we have the upper hand here, but really this game should be a shit show. Should be juicy though.
 
Away against the Cowboys: Loss
Playing in Jerry World is ass, though I'll never forget Colt McCoy leading us to victory on Monday night. No way in hell we go 2-0 against the Cowboys, so mark this down as a loss.
 
Away against the Steelers: Loss
Big Ben is back and can run around in the pocket, meaning even with ample pressure his offense will do better than ours.
 
Away against the 49ers: Loss
It's the Niners, and they mean business. Last year's game was a 9-0 snoozefest for some reason, so I'm guessing this one will be 30-27 shootout. Should be fun to see a potential Trent Williams vs. Chase Young matchup.
 
Home against the Seahawks: Loss
Russell Wilson.
 
Home against the Panthers: Win
Rivera fights his old team and...wins?? Yep, even with Teddy B I feel our defense will keep us afloat. Shaq Thompson is scary, but I am not particularly afraid of Donte Jackson and Eli Apple... Haskins will now probably throw three picks.
 
Away against the Eagles: Win
Ending the season on a positive note, what?? Yes, this one may be a stretch. However, if the Eagles are in the number one spot, my guess is that they would rest their starters against ours. Then again, I have no clue who will win the East so your guess is as best as mine. At any rate, I am ready to 100 percent lockdown Wentz this game, maybe.
 
Final record: 7-9, miss the playoffs, 3rd in NFC East
In my book, this would be an OK first year for Rivera. Coming in with so many green players and an entirely new system can lend itself to mediocrity, but building off of this year is crucial in my book to finally escaping out of the limbo which Washington has played in since Snyder bought the team in 1999.
Draft wise, this should set us up for a pick between...12-15? A solid early/mid-first, probably drafting a receiver, tight end, or secondary player depending on who pans out this year.
 
 

Training Camp Battles to watch

 
  • Wide Receivers:
Like previously mentioned, it is unclear who will be receivers 2 and 3 behind McLaurin. Kelvin Harmon and Steven Sims Jr. emerged as early contenders, but as noted earlier Harmon tore his ACL. Latimer was ok last year on the Giants, but can he beat out Gandy-Golden or Sims Jr. at the top of the chart. I believe players such as Trey Quinn, Cam Sims, Johnathon Johnson and Isaiah Wright are all fighting for a roster space, so seeing them as starters is extremely unlikely. Predicted Winners: Antonio Gandy-Golden and Steven Sims Jr.
 
  • Tight Ends:
This whole roster spot is a toss up. I truly am hoping that Sprinkle gets a kick in the rear to elevate or somebody else steps up, as he was far from a special talent last year. His name makes sense, as he was only able to Sprinkle in a few catches from Haskins and Keenum throughout 2019. Both Richard Rogers and Logan Thomas aren't impressive, so the hope for fans is that Thad Moss or an unknown player such as Marcus Baugh is able to claim the spot. No matter who wins here, the position will be weak. Predicted Winner: Jeremy Sprinkle
 
  • Cornerback:
The battle here lies between all players not named Fuller or Darby. Known Redskins names such as Fabian Moreau, Greg Stroman, Jimmy Moreland, and Danny Johnson are all fighting to be the number 3 corner or remain on the roster in a bench role. I feel at most one of these players will be cut, but overall secondary job security should remain steady for 95 percent of Washington players. Predicted Winner: Fabian Moreau
 
 

Offensive and Defensive Schemes

Offense:
One of the points I've read stressed about Scott Turner is his ability to fit the offense for the QB. As this will be his first full time OC job, it is unclear exactly what schemes he plans to run, but I assume it will be up to date with the fast and mobile trends of stat and data driven offenses today. Perhaps we shall see some similarities to his father, who utilized both Air Coryell and spread techniques in Carolina.
 
Defense: Base 4-3, 4-3 Under
As mentioned before, Del Rio and Rivera are shifting our defense from a 3-4 of the past to a 4-3. This should help our rush game significantly, with players such as Ryan Anderson and Chase Young being able to fit in the scheme quite naturally, For more in depth coverage, be sure to read this Hog's Haven post which will explain it more in depth.  
 
Thanks for reading! Let me know your thoughts down below. Agree, disagree? This was my first year writing, so I hope it was bearable to read!

Situation

Three weeks after our original attack have passed. Friendly units were sweeping western side of our objectives for us to safely establish an FOB further south. We'll be moving from there. Recon unit has been reassigned to different platoon, so we aren't getting support from them. Our informator told us that he's seen Iraqi army making a deal with someone who will supply them. This might make them bolder when they will be sending QRFs. Stay prepared.

Enemy Forces

Enemies have small arms, light vehicles and armored vehicles. They have AT and AA capabilities. They possibly have gotten stronger with recently bought assets.

Friendly Forces

We have infantry deployed in the AO and CAS support.
Vehicles for infantry use:
  • M1043 w/M2 x4
  • Unarmed M1043 x4
Assign them as needed.
There will be additional supplies behind M1043s, each vehicle gets ammo and medical crate.
Pilot will be flying an A-10 and starts on northern Airfield.

Mission:

Objectives are as following:
  1. Clear out enemies in town of Garmarud
  2. Clear out town of Garmsar and a military base next to it. Enemies might have stored some of the bought assets there - destroy them.
  3. We've noticed heavy movement in Timurkalay and have been tasked with clearing it. It is possible that Iraqi army has a cache there.
  4. Clear out the southern most airfield and make sure any assets that are there are no longer of use for our enemy.
  5. Secure the area around the airfield - Loy Manara, Chardarakht and Sultansafe must be safe.
