Or do they stand by Stidham and trade down to stockpile picks and talent? Do they stay put and just take the best guy available? Are there any more trades on the horizon (Edelman?)?

Will we see VHS tapes with the labels scratched off in Goodell’s basement?
Yeah, I'm excited, though I don't anyone's going to do anything crazy. The hype before the draft is always a lot of noise compared to what happens. I don't the Pats will draft a QB in the 1st round, maybe not even in the 2nd. I think they're fine going with Stidham for this year..could also always sign a veteran placeholder type or make a trade down the line. Belichick is not a guy who has a history of moving up and trading picks to get one player. He rather find diamonds in the rough that fit the scheme.

Tua is what interests me the most. While most say Miami, there's a part of me that feels like someone who we don't expect is going to take him.

Stidham was a great player at my alma mater, Auburn, but didn’t reach his full potential because our coach can’t develop quarterbacks and operates in a no huddle style offense. I think he’ll fit much better in Belicheks system. I knew I was looking at a NFL QB, despite some hiccups in his last year. I wonder, too, if Belichek can wait for him to get through his growing pains.

According to those in the know Belichick, thinks very highly of Stidham.

This continues until there is a disseminated vaccine, currently 18 months from now.

I'm never optimistic as a Skins fan but I'm very excited to watch Chase Young play football and was generally happy with the direction they took this offseason in firing Bruce Allen, bringing in Riverboat Ron and making a few other organizational changes. Still have no clue what Haskins will end up being but he did improve and play well the last month of last season. Could still easily see him being a bust but I feel he was a bit unfairly written off by some people this offseason despite the fact that he got better each game and was a rookie QB for a dogshit team with very few weapons. Time will tell.

Very excited to watch Cam this season. Assuming there is football.

Cam will probably start. Hope he still has gas in the tank. The man has been punished his whole career in Carolina.

If there is a season, I hope that the Broncos can muster up something this year. Being in the same division as Mahomes sucks .

Also, this year's Super Bowl felt like it took place 5 years ago.

I'm on the edge of my seat for it. Wish it hadn't been teased to death all week, I just wanna see it already. Praying whatever it is is enough to make Snyder sell the team.

Damn this redskins thing is a mess—the logo and name change and now simultaneously have to deal with these allegations and sex charges and The FedEx chairman who owns a 40 percent stake in the team wants out. This is brutally bad. Feel bad for skins fans.

Honestly expected the sexual harassment article to be way worse based on some of the crazy shit that was flying around the last couple of days. Still awful and confirms what’s been somewhat known that thE organizational culture is terrible. My primary desire is to see Snyder forced to sell the team since he is a truly rotten human being who has destroyed everything about the franchise. All evidence points to him just being a straight up bad guy. Idk if this is gonna be enough to do it though. He has shown no problem being the public punching bag and the only thing that will ever cause action is a loss of money, we saw it with the name change. Unless sponsors say they’re gonna pull out after this I think he’s probably not going anywhere

As a lifelong skins fan, this has all been really depressing. The name change is a much bigger deal and longer lasting than the #metoo WaPo article. I wouldn't be upset though if somehow it forces Dan out.

Really strange time to be a fan of them. I mean there have already been plenty of strange times in the past 20 years, but it feels really weird right now more than ever.

I don’t think Snyder is going anywhere. This isn’t a Donald Sterling situation and Snyder himself doesn’t seem to be directly linked to the allegations. They’re going to take a hit for this, but owning an NFL franchise is a huge asset and it’s only going to keep going up in value. Unless he’s totally forced out but the league or by total embarrassment or legal problems, I don’t see him selling. Just my .02
