Every few years the Skins just seem to sputter as they normally do but circumstances come together where they get hot for a few games at the end of the year to sneak into the playoffs.

    Of course after that they go right back to the dumpster fire they always are for the next 2-3 years.
    The Skins are pretty notorious for either winning the division or finishing last. And the majority of the time it's finishing last. When they finish first it seems like a horribly weak schedule and a little luck prop them up to win 9 games or so. Otherwise they finish last in the division. I wonder if this year will be another last place finisher.

    The team is built around Cousins, Reed, their WR's, Trent Williams, Kerrigan, Norman, Breeland, and Preston Smith. Of those only Norman and Smith are guys McCloughan brought in and Smith looks to have regressed a bit from his hot finish to last season.

    It's obviously too early to make any final judgments on draft classes that are only a year or two old, but so far the only clear hits are Jamison Crowder and Preston Smith. Am I supposed to be impressed with them taking an OG 5th overall who looks like a good but not great player?
    I think they had a solid draft this year with Doctson, Fuller and Cravens. The first two have been injured, but Cravens has looked good and Doctson is now getting healthy and on the field. Too early to say but I think those three will be good.

    In the short term their fortunes will ride with Jay Gruden and Cousins and I think both will hinder them. It'll be interesting to see if/when Gruden gets replaced whether McCloughan will have a major say in the new hire. But I think their drafting has been much better now.

    Man Cowboys fans talk about Jaylon like it was a garbage wasted pick. Could you imagine what our fan base would be saying about Doctson or Fuller?

    But truth is most rookies just aren't ready for big time contributions. We really lucked out with our last draft class. Not just Dak and Zeke but Brown and Collins are basically starters too. That sort of stuff isn't normal.

    I think Gruden has helped settle Cousins down and make him a serviceable QB...but outside of that Gruden looks overmatched during games. I just don't think the guy is a good HC.

    I saw a tweet from Jaylon yesterday on ESPN...man it sure looks like that guy will never play a meaningful down for the Cowboys.
