That made sense before, but with solidifying Kyle Smith’s position, why wait? Sounds like there’s faith there, and if you promote Kyle and then not let him have control over his team below him that’s weird.— Ivey West (@Dorv) January 14, 2020
Yesterday was a big time sign to me that everything is going to get significantly better under @RiverboatRonHC ....Keeping Kyle Smith, is a huge keep and a great sign that Rivera wasn't going to let another sharp mind go. https://t.co/r1LbY03XZ8#Redskins #HTTR #NFL— Chris Russell AKA "The Rooster" (@Russellmania621) January 14, 2020
The Buffalo Bills were once considered one of the NFL’s mediocre teams. Now, they hold a blueprint the Redskins could follow. https://t.co/cKQd1lTGpz— NBC Sports Redskins (@NBCSRedskins) January 14, 2020
Which NFL team made the best head coaching hire in this cycle?:https://t.co/CRNhqyKTsp— Pro Football Rumors (@pfrumors) January 14, 2020
He's best as a 1-gapping 3 tech, who may also have some ability to play as a 7-tech DE. Let's see how he does in the new D in 2020 - with a REAL D-Coordinator— Mark Tyler(Hogs Haven) (@Tiller56) January 14, 2020
The Bengals don't have a QB.— Disco (@discoque5) January 14, 2020
The Bengals have the #1 overall pick in the 2020 draft.
The Bengals need a QB.
Joe Burrow is the best player/QB in the 2020 draft.
The Bengals are going to draft Joe Burrow.
Joe Burrow will not be available at #2 for the #Redskins.
Why is Redskins Twitter so angry? The season is over, the draft is 3 month away.— Simone Love (@SimoneBett) January 14, 2020

Starting tape work on Joe Burrow right now. I take a look at data points before getting to the tape to find any outliers or clues to look for. One that is intriguing relative to "NFL throws"— Lance Zierlein (@LanceZierlein) January 14, 2020
Intermediate throws outside the numbers (2019):
21 of 43, 333 yards, 5 TDs and 4 INTs
Two are overthrows and two are just bad decisions. I watched all 43 rapid-fire. It's pretty clear-cut what is going on. I spent 5 hours on this freaking report. Just finished. It will be out soon.— Lance Zierlein (@LanceZierlein) January 15, 2020
On that VERY SPECIFIC throw, not great. If you want to look at throws between the numbers and down the field, it's off the charts. Depends on what you are looking for.— Lance Zierlein (@LanceZierlein) January 14, 2020

It's below average for sure. He knows it. He goes and works on it in the off-season each year.— Lance Zierlein (@LanceZierlein) January 14, 2020
Redskins assistant coaching hires that are official so far: Scott Turner (OC), Jack Del Rio (DC), John Matsko (OL), Chris Harris (DBs), Pete Hoener (TEs), Ben Jacobs (assistant STs, Sam Mills (DL), Jim Hostler (WRs), Vincent Rivera (quality control),... https://t.co/rQPMH8WvIa— John Keim (@john_keim) January 14, 2020
you talking about this staff in particular? Or in general around the NFL? Marty S had his brother on staff; Gibbs had his kid. GWilliams has had his kid with him his last few stops. I'd have to see league wide how many or if it's more. No idea to be honest.— John Keim (@john_keim) January 14, 2020
Gotcha. Yeah not sure. Might be worth checking out. Thanks.— John Keim (@john_keim) January 14, 2020

#Redskins promote Tim Gribble to Director of College Scouting.— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) January 14, 2020
Kyle Smith: “Tim is an outstanding scout and veteran in the league. My tremendous working relationship with Gribbs coupled with his 20+ years of experience and 19 years as a Redskin made the decision an easy one.”
#Redskins’ promotions of Kyle Smith & Tim Gribble in midst of Ron Rivera’s house-cleaning are clear endorsement by him of #Skins’ last three drafts. It’s one thing for us to think they’ve been good. Telling & encouraging that Ron thinks so as well.— Al Galdi (@AlGaldi) January 14, 2020

Luke Kuechly had two years left on his contract with the #Panthers. He walks away from $10.8 million in 2020.— Tom Pelissero (@TomPelissero) January 15, 2020
Luke Kuechly made over 1,000 tackles in his #NFL career. What didn't get nearly as much attention, though, is that he intercepted 18 passes. Only 3 LBs since 1978, when the schedule was expanded to 16 games, have had more in their first 8 seasons.#Panthers #Packers #Ravens #Bears pic.twitter.com/4ZCyHYfc1p— Dan Daly (@dandalyonsports) January 15, 2020
I had the privilege of playing next to HOF #MikeSingletary & coaching HOF @BUrlacher54 & @LukeKuechly is worthy of that honor someday. But more important I will remember Luke’s sense of humor, his leadership & 4 being a great teammate. pic.twitter.com/MM96l6vZSS— Ron Rivera (@RiverboatRonHC) January 15, 2020

One player who cemented his status Monday night as a top pick in the April NFL Draft was Clemson LB Isaiah Simmons. A standout. Will be interesting to see if Simmons can challenge Chase Young for the top defensive player drafted.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) January 15, 2020
Joe Burrow is amazing but let’s not forget how he played before Joe Brady developed a system for him.— (@bentleyhaskins) January 14, 2020
It’s all about how a system sets you up for success. Whose to say we aren’t doing the same for Haskins in 2020?
I’ve seen Haskins make throws Joe couldn’t DREAM of making.
I'll call it now.— Andrew Siciliano (@AndrewSiciliano) January 14, 2020

Is the perception of Eric Bieniemy's role with Chiefs keeping him from being next head coach from Andy Reid's tree?— Terez A. Paylor (@TerezPaylor) January 14, 2020

It will be the 5th time he's been at home.
His teams are 1-5 in conference championship games.
