Why The Redskins Facing An Offseason From Hell

The Redskins are looking at a long offseason

Why The Redskins Facing An Offseason From Hell
Walls dream

The Redskins have found themselves in turmoil this offseason. It started with the release of former defensive coordinator Joe Barry. And how was his replacement reception? Well, it came with a bunch of questions. After firing incumbent Joe Barry, the skins went on a two-week search for a new DC. There were a handful of big names: Wade Phillips, Gus Bradley, and Mike Pettine. Each one declined an offer from the redskins. Reasons ranging from Washington having no talent on defense. To not offering enough money. With the big names being out of the picture all that was left was the scraps, which in this case was the hire of Greg Manusky. Who by the way was already part of the staff and was hired by the guy you just fired. Manusky may be a cool guy to have a beer with, but why fire someone who had clear problems with the unit the previous year. Then fill his job with someone that was also part of that horrendous unit.

Still, that is just the tip of the iceberg for Washington’s misery so far into the offseason. Everyone and their grandma knew Washington will see turnover on defense. What no one saw was the departure of young stud offensive coordinator Sean McVayto Los Angeles. This led to scrambling in the front office. Ending with the promotion of Matt Cavanaugh to offensive coordinator. This leads us to the most intriguing part of this story. With the exodus of both the DC and OC. Possible departures of both starting wideouts, Desean Jackson and Pierre Garçon, where does this leave current starting QB Kirk Cousins.

Dan Snyder and Scot McCloughan both seem to be apprehensive in giving Cousins “elite” money. With both coordinators gone. His head coach possibly on the hot seat to be fired at the end of this upcoming year. Two wide receivers he has the most rapport with possibly on the move. Leaving him with an injury-prone tight end in Jordan Reed. A second year wide out that played all of 5 snaps last season. And a slot receiver who should not be the number one target in a good NFL offense. This leaves Cousins in a tough spot. Both the owner and GM seem to believe in you enough to pay you. And the only guy who has your back just left while the other has little power at the moment. What is the motivation to stay? Why risk a big payday for a team that might hurt your future earnings. Cousins best bet might be to leave Washington.

If Cousins leaves the Redskins would have lost a great offensive mind, a defensive coordinator, a top 15 Quarterback. Add in the possibility of losing two starting receivers. And Washington would have lost more in one offseason then some teams lose in a span of ten years! And that would be an offseason from hell.

Today is Bisexuality Day and I'm more than ready to give all the bisexuals some love by breaking the stigma. I see you, I hear you, I appreciate you.

Bisexuliaty is a sexual orientation where people can form attraction and/or relationships to more than one gender. More than half of the LGBTQ+ community identifies as bisexual but it comes with a ton of bias, discrimination, and violence. And, honestly, bisexuals tend to be forgotten becuase bi-erasure wants to hold onto biphobia to question the existence and legitimacy of bisexuality.

There isn't one person the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic hasn't affected. While COVID-19 is risking everyone's physical health, it's also destroying the world's economy and personal finances, weakening mental health, wreaking havoc on education... and, well, the list goes on.

Among the many things being impacted is love.

A Couple's Wedding In Peru Was Postponed By COVID-19, But A Lifetime Of Love Is Worth The Wait

"We'd prefer to wait and have the wedding that both of us have always thought of."

During their first semester at Instituto de Empresa (IE Business School) while working on graduate degrees in Madrid, Spain, soon-to-be-newlyweds Rory and Gigi met when they were placed in a workgroup together — and the rest was history. Now, four years after their relationship began, the couple's fall plans to get married in Perú, where Gigi is originally from, have since been postponed by COVID-19.

Though things haven't always been easy for the pair because of immigration, starting a skincare business together, and now, canceling their dream wedding because of the pandemic, they have always worked together as a team (maybe we should all be in a workgroup with our future spouses).

A Bumble Couple's Wedding Was Canceled By COVID-19, But Nothing Could Come Between This Perfect Match

"The whole purpose of all the stress and time and tears was that we love each other and that was all that mattered."

Shortly after Kaihla's sister made her a dating profile on Bumble (despite her fear of being catfished), she matched with Shanna, and their chemistry was quickly undeniable. So much so that only a month and a half into dating, Shanna told her best friend "I think I'm going to marry her," and eventually, the nonprofit worker and elementary PE teacher duo proved this to be true.

In the fourth episode of a new docuseries called "Pandemic Weddings" by SoulPancake, the couple opens up about how they met, the difficulties of canceling a non-refundable wedding of their dreams (that took a year and a half to plan), as well as the pain of having family members who didn't support their marriage use the pandemic as a convenient excuse not to come.

This fall was my boyfriend and I's two-year anniversary! In the past for special occasions, we've typically gone out for a movie and dinner or just did something fun in general. However, in the year of COVID, we didn't really feel safe doing something like that.

Instead, we wanted to try something new that kept us significantly more socially distanced. Luckily, I found a TikTok trend a few months ago that gave me the perfect idea! The Target TikTok trend blew up all over for couples and friends alike. It seemed like a fun activity for us but also a good way to get each other gifts that we might not have thought about.

If there's one thing everyone's talking about right now, it's voting — in real life, on social media, and yes, even on dating apps.

And rightfully so! Because is there really anything sexier than someone who cares about using their voice to be the change they want to see? In my opinion, no... not much, honestly.

Any medium- to dark-skinned woman knows how difficult it can be to find the right SPF. Most mass-market SPF products are catered to lighter skin tones, and the potent UV-blocking titanium dioxide and zinc oxide have a way of leaving an unflattering white or grey cast on the skin.
