And just like that, we're right back in the thick of things.

We need to keep that fire alive though - it felt like at times there that game was starting to slip but we did enough to hold on. We're going to get Orlando's best too and they do a lot of things that exploit where we've been weak this season. I think our gameplan stays the same and we just need to execute.

Sounds good boss man, felt good to get the dub and have things clicking.. been a rough start for us as a squad so now we're playing some catch up.

For sure - keep up the good work. I'm thinking a big games in store for you again this week.

Robert Tyler please Demi.

Robert, just wanted to give some props for the sack fumble this week. That really turned the tide of the game and swung momentum in our favor.

Chris Mackey please Demi.

Chris, I just wanted to give you a shout out for your performances through five games. You've been a real leader this season and your dedication to the franchise speaks volumes. I know Coach and I talked and last week went for an increase in targets your direction and I think that'll be a boon for us in inter-division play. Keep up the good work.

For sure - that perspective is appreciated and well respected Chris. Thanks for coming to see me.

Coach Hoffman please Demi.

Coach, just wanted to check in after a couple weeks with us and see if there's anything you've really noted; a particular player or two you'd like to work with, something we can maybe change up schematically or introduce, and just overall perspectives.

There is a ton of talent especially on the defensive side of the ball.  Tyler, Nutt, Mayo, The Backers, Mojica, Barkley, even McKeown to his own extent.. I feel like the secondary is undersized though, and would benefit from more attacking safety play.

That's fair. Coach Graham and I have spoken about something similar in the past. I think this week we're going to be running our normal scheme and then with the break, I was wondering then if you might take a look at some film and see if there's a player who might fit that role who we could target. We've done good grabbing under the radar guys that fit like Tyler, Hernandez and McKeown and I imagine that's more the area we're looking at. I know a Turnover Taylor or Andrew Roderick would be great but they're either not on the market at risk of their GM being fired or the asking price borders on what the Pelicans want for Anthony Davis. Probably a strong safety given Danny's status on this team but the right free safety I think we'd make a jump.

Taylor and/or Roderick would be big acquisitions.  Robert Dotson is another I really like, but Charlotte are crafty in their trades, so he might not be affordable either.

GM Greenside and I have both talked about our mutual admiration for Dotson. I do agree on them being crafty and making the money work would be difficult. I'll reach out and see what we can do though if there's other names that come to mind. The other thing I wanted to ask about was the guys you had at Washington that declared for the draft. Not an urgency but maybe over the next couple of weeks if you find yourself with a bit of time to jot down a couple notes about guys you think might fit here that'd be great.

1. Talk about last weeks game. (typical what went right / wrong depending on a win or loss)
That was a game I felt like if we took it we were right back in the thick of things. One of those games that we had to have and we didn't come out in the first half with the focus we needed to have. We got shredded with the deep ball and didn't play well on offense. I do want to give a shout out to a couple players for never saying die; Danny Edelman had what, four chase down tackles to save touchdowns that at least kept things reasonable? And Robert Tyler continues to get into the backfield to make plays.

2. What are your thoughts on Hilton Keegan and others skipping this Rookie Showcase and committing to either the XFL or AAF?
I think they're good football players. I think each person has to make what they feel is best for their career and them personally.

3. What are you hoping to gain from this weeks Showcase?
I think some insight into a couple positions we'll be looking to make moves at in the off-season. We've got a lot of expiring deals, especially on the offensive side of the ball so it's going to be a busy time for our scouting staff.

4. What did you schedule for your players during the bye week? Training or a week off?
I think everyone here needs to take a week off to evaluate things. We're 2-4 and we've pushed these guys and it hasn't necessarily worked. Maybe a week off will give us some clarity and bring everything back into focus.

5. Talk about anything else on your mind in reference to the league/sport.
I'm really just focused on the showcase and what we're going to look like at the end of the season; chumps or champions.

...well that was pathetic.  I don't know what the problem is, but we bury it, try to overcome it, and then it resurfaces again.
