And the two times on plays where players were CLEARLY stopped well short he says "I DON'T KNOW" like it was close to him getting it.

I'll always have a soft spot for Gus for that call in the UCLA comeback over Gonzaga in the NCAA tourney, "UCLA has climbed the mountain" after the steal and layup to win the game. I guess the Zags got their revenge last year at the buzzer. But Gus is just not that good in the NFL stuff and honestly he's gotten stale in college hoops too.
Then there was that time I believe he called DeAndre Hopkins, 'David' Hopkins lol

Yeah rather than compare him to a total garbage contract I looked at similar compensated wrs for 2021 and I guess it’s in line with those salaries. Still I wish we had a GM that got more bang for the buck instead of just being relieved the contract isn’t awful.
I mean, just a few weeks ago you were talking about Curtis Samuel who is now on IR and hasnt run since May. Quite a few posters wanted him and he got like what? 14 mil per?

One reason I get annoyed with people who keep bringing up "question marks" is that almost every move is a question mark. If the Cardinals had signed Samuel, many would have lauded the move and at this point in time, in reality, AJ Green is better because AJ Green is playing.

Isabella is active too, so he’s better? I think that’s a poor argument in support of Green.

I honestly forgot Phillip's was on the team
I’m incredibly skeptical of him, but this d is tailor made for him. Jones and watt occupying blockers frees him up to be disruptive on the interior like in Buffalo the year he played with a talented front 7. Problem is, he’s not on the field. Hope we see something from him upon his return.

Being available is always better than not available.

Samuel hasn't taken even a preseason or training camp snap with the Washington Football Team.
It’s two games into a season. Might want to see how this plays out before you start crowing about Green over Samuel.

Only two games, Green should get more targets as we go along. Not worried right now and would rather have him than Invisabella out there

I agree, Ouchie, but haven’t we basically given up on him (and by "we" I mean the fans)? At least I have stopped thinking much about him, or for that matter hoping for what he can bring.

I remember some days ago where someone on this board advocated for trading for defensive tackle Quinnen Williams from the Jets. I don’t see any reason why the Jets would do that, but the point is that I do think a dominant defensive tackle would do wonders for the defense. I like Rashad Lawrence, Corey Peters and Leki Fotu, but I think they can be upgraded (at least right now. Maybe their future will be great). Thus, if Jordan Phillips would in fact produce on the field, that would be huge.

Not "crowing" just pointing out how often these free agents don't work out and how often even the best perceived moves turn out to be the wrong one. Samuel hasn't practiced with the Washington Team in a really long time, so he probably won't play until midseason at the earliest...

It’s also a longer term signing given the disparity in ages. If Samuel does hit it’s big upside for Washington. But the other side is if Green doesn’t hit it’s a short issue given his contract. We have a long ways to go before we have any idea which was the better course.
