There were a lot of RedWolves logos in the video.

I'd be ok with the Armada or Brigade.

I think they'll go with Commanders. Seems like a safe pick and the sort of thing that would make lil Danny feel tough.
Didn't we hear that there would be no "Red" in the name? Brigade kinda lands with a thud when you say it out loud.
I like ARMADA for the spiky symmetry in the letters. Kinda a pyramid shape or the peak of the Washington Monument.
I doubt Defenders, since like the guy said, what if our defense stinks?

Since the beginning, I have thought that the perfect name would be the Washington Monuments.

What could possibly be as good as that?

I’m not a fan of these choices. But I could live with any of them.

I like Hogs but not Red Hogs. Maybe a different adjective...

Fitzcraptic wasn’t very good tonight. I like the offense a lot better with Heineke.

Patterson is legit.

Heinicke looked sharp. Patterson could be all rookie. Dayami Brown is a good one.
After the Wizards GM really went and did it by having an imaginative, strong, draft day. I totally feel this as well;

He dropped a relatively easy catch, and I think that was the last straw - after such a bad season. Tbh, I think big Cam Sims could also get the axe after AGG showed far better hands last game. The first thing you need as a WR is good hands, imo, and both Sims' just don't.

Patterson... not sure I've seen a back who can stop on a dime and instantly change directions like he can - has such a great feel for finding a crease. Have they tried him at all at punt returner, because I think he'd be dynamic there, as well. The one kickoff I saw him return was probably the best WFT return I've seen in years. It's amazing that he wasn't drafted. The play by play guy said he's 5'9; I think he's more like 5'5.

Is Patterson worth a flier in fantasy football? I might take him at the end of the draft.

Probably not unless Gibson gets dinged up. Hopefully they don't go to Barber - that... would be a disaster. Patterson's small, but he's still 195 lbs, and he's so quick that I think he's very good at avoiding big hits, so he'd probably be just as durable as Barber would be. I'd say - if Gibson gets hurt, be quick to acquire Patterson.

I couldn't stand Sims at all. I hate unreliable receivers, and he is about as unreliable as they come. Cam Sims is almost just as annoying. The last straw is when he stopped running a deep route against the Bucs that caused him to be a step behind a perfectly thrown pass by Heineke. Get him out of here too.

I've been disappointed in AGG but I'd rather give him a chance as the "big" receiver than the Sims.

I am positive he is not taller than 5 foot 7. He is 5-6 on a good day

Interesting Lee the play-by-play guy said his twin brother has grown to 6 foot 5.

That picture of Patterson and Chase Young when they were kids is hilarious. Wish I could find it...they showed it during the cast. Looks like Chase grew about a foot since the picture was taken, and Jaret stayed the same height.

edit: found it

It's amazing how quickly RB's can lose their value. Sony Michel looked like a superstar in the making as a rookie, fell back in his 2nd year, and then tore his achilles. But he was showing he's ready for a comeback this preseason and... then gets traded to LA for a 5th and a 6th. Saquon Barkley - incredible over 2,000 yards from scrimmage in his rookie year, down to 1,441 as a sophomore, then tore his knee in year 3, and year 4... who knows? Nobody cared that he was a bad pass-blocker when he was a rookie; now people talk about it. Never use high picks on them. Get guys like Gibson and Patterson.

I like Armada. I don't really have a probably with Commanders. Commandos would be cooler but, obviously, non-PC.

Defenders stinks, but sounds like a choice that might be it.

I once heard 4 years is it for NFL RB life span, on average.
