Lost In Player Analysis…

The picture is of Harriet Tubman and I have no idea from what year, like it matters!  She trekked hundreds of miles for her and others: freedom!  Go WHTs (Washington Harriet Tubman’s!)

 

Below is my comments on a competition website where I briefly was a paid contributor (fansided): www.riggosrag.com.

Before I print my comments, this writer needs to let the readers know that my experience with Jacob and Ian at fansided was that they are quality journalist and a really cool and innovative site.

BUT, like the rest of our Nation’s Capitol broadcast and media…most media seem to be thinking there are some players that stink on both Wizards and WFT rosters. (see THomas Boswell’s preseason article on roster.

Has he (Boswell) won a Pultizer, honeslty I do not know but I would guess multiple pulitzers, nobel?).

This town, in general, is apparently lost in a rabbit hole of discussing player’s physiques, 40 yard dash times, ability to bob 10 apples in a minute, etc., etc. , etc.

Has one ever tried having a discussion on WFT, mostly, it turns into a dissection of this player and pieces needed.  For someone who might need melatonin or a sleep aid, player talk is a perfect remedy…even last night I felt kind of silly publishing go get Bell.  Each season, new stars, youngster mature, teams improve and 1 team wins a championship. Go WFT, Today!

It seems like what we learned from Jay Gruden is that if we can avoid going 4 deep at most positions because of injuries we are pretty close.  Maybe there is a drop off from player 80 on the training camp roster to number 1, ask a WFT coach, not me.

I am just a writer/ blogger. But these are pros, 80 can be 1…unsung heroes are made every week. Heck, being a WFT fan we see that most every week!  Want to review the first 5 weeks this season, did Logan Thomas have 1 or 2 tds that other game?

Besides, Joe Montana and Tom Brady were not overall number 1s, not even 1st rounders.  Who were the big stars in their drafts, well, someone is eating crow!

Way too much emphasis on players as opposed to coaching. If a player can run 4.4, why not have him using his speed every play. I played rugby and if I could hardly stand at the end of the game, it was a good day.

Coaches not hacks at the local radio station truly know players’ strengths and weaknesses by watching them every day when they come in to work. I certainly do not…but liked what I saw  of Haskins…but thought he looked spooked and agreed he (Haskins) needed to be benched. No matter how player obsessed fantasy guru’s outrage was!  Next man up, unfortunately.

It is a team sport, I think!  11 a side and the 12th man is always the fans here in Washington!  Let us get a woman on the helmet and re-named something like Washington Notorious (in honor of RBG) or Washington Tubmans (in honor of the $20 bill?) or Washington Sue B’s (in honor of Susan B. Anthony) or Washington Hillary’s (what? what? It takes a village…why is Hilary a bad word, SHE LOST) or Washington Barbaras (the Bush’s mom mom was a great 1st lady)  and let us have some fun this decade with unsung hereos 1 thru 80 each season.  Go WFT, Today!  Of course, this male wants to see a WFT woman named helmet and image beating up on the Dallas Cowgirls, excuse me, Dallas Cowboys.

Get them bucks 1 thru 80.

Here is the comment to riggosrag.com:

All this talk of players is non sense guys. it is like going to baskins robbins as a kid in the 80s and choosing from all the favors. Every player is like chocolate and vanilla ice cream with hot fudge on top. It is a new decade. lets concern ourselves with systems and coaching. When a player is weak at something is he taught/ used correctly. remember gibbs was a master of role players: Monte Coleman’s dogs, Jumpy Geathers….not great athletes or talents but coached up correctly. Neal Olkewicz is g-d, lol. Currently, Logan Thomas had a few key drops three weeks ago and turned around with the catch of the season 2 weeks ago. Last week, reverting to drops. there is nothing that says Thomas cannot go the rest of the season without a drop if coached up. He seems to be our TE for the future… Here’s Toohil’s report from another site. Since this is just a comment I can quote sources….No doubt, just like EVERY man on the roster down to Troy Apeke….

Stanford LB Casey Toohill

Considering his size (6-foot-4, 250-pounds), it is hard to not come away impressed with Casey Toohill’s showing on Saturday. The tweener linebacker prospect ran a 4.62 40-yard dash but stood out with his jumps. His 39-inch vertical jump was tied for third-best in this year’s group and was the same number Simmons hit, while his 126-inch broad jump tied for fifth-best. His 7.08 three-cone was one of the lower numbers in that drill, but his explosion for his size was a pleasant surprise.

That was the end of the comment and I will not include if there were any responses.  It turns out the Casey Toohill description was pulled from the following: John Shipley (SI, Jaguars) report, “2020 NFL Scouting Combine: 7 Linebackers Who Impressed and Could Fit the Jaguars.”  Nice reporting, I guess….having we been reading reports like this for too many decades.  The problems with the fans and media focus on sports today: too Roman Gladiator like/ focus!  Heck, the Boston Red Soxes won in 2018 with so many injuries…good teams are running winning systems. Hope here in DC with Rivera!

Go Haskins! Go Allen! Go Smith!  Go Matt Cassell? (Are we calling for a free agent QB yet?  His fantasy numbers say….Josh Johnson like!)

Go WFT, Today!  Or what I am hoping for go Notorious RBGs!

Have we figured out how to beat the 2-deep yet, NFL!  WInk-wink.  Is there a 2-deep in Madden football, anyone, Bueller!
