  1. Alex Smith Trade Thread (Details Inside)

    Yes- True - but he played in 1989 and 1990. Williams took the skins to SB in 87 and Rypien in 91...so how else would you say it.
  2. Alex Smith Trade Thread (Details Inside)

    BTW- We always say Rypien to Cousins - but remember between Doug Williams and Mary Rypien there was..... Stan Humphries - Another QB to leave the skins and take a team to the Super bowl...

    There is debate - See #7 http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2013/02/28/10-things-to-know-about-the-franchise-tag/
  4. Alex Smith Trade Thread (Details Inside)

    Maybe im naive -But I really don't think Kirk Cousins DIDNT want to play for the skins. I think he wants to hit free agency. I dont think he really felt strongly about staying with the skins or leaving them.
  5. Alex Smith Trade Thread (Details Inside)

    If that did this on his first tag -I would agree. But this is his 3rd tag. Meaning KC knows that he can NEVER be tagged again. The man has said he wants to the hit the open market. He is so close to being able to hit the open market with no team able to stop him. This is what he has always wanted. When a man tells you who he is and what he wants -believe him.

    ok - We just disagree. He can sign the tender but refuse to sign a LTD with anyone. Financially its not a issue. Its 34m. Combined with the 24 this year and 20 last year and he has made $78m over last 3 years. So it comes down to who is bluffing more. The skins sinking 51m into 2 QB for a year, or Cousin being the backup QB for a year. I think Cousins has already shown over and over and over again that he is willing to bet on himself.
  7. Alex Smith Trade Thread (Details Inside)

    ok - I get the argument now. But here is a guy that refused to sign a LTD for 2 years because he wants to be a FA and this year said he wouldn't even talk to the Skins until FA. So this idea that KC will now say "I'll start doing a LTD NOW - Even though what I Really want is to hit FA and if Im tagged that means i get 34m this year and a GUARANTEED Free Agency next year" is just way to far fetched.
  8. Alex Smith Trade Thread (Details Inside)

    But they dont. I mean - They avoid a bidding war for this year only -But 34m a year will prob win you a bidding war anyway...
  9. Alex Smith Trade Thread (Details Inside)

    Explain to me -EVEN of the skins tag him for 34m to trade - and make it a low ball trade because they cant keep him - even a "4th round in 2019 say - WHY would a team make this trade? Who is going to want to spend 34m for KC for a 1 year rental? And if you are KC - you KNOW after this year you can never be tagged again - so why would he sign a LTD?
  10. Alex Smith Trade Thread (Details Inside)

    All this silly talk about tagging cousins is stage 3 of the grief process... Its NOT going to happen.
  11. Alex Smith Trade Thread (Details Inside)

    Those that are saying low risk are totally missing the point that Kirk doesnt HAVE to sign with another team. We apply the transition tag, he doesnt like any of the offers hes getting, he does nothing and the skins are screwed. (BTW - not even in spite. KC knows how Washington works right now. He doesn't sign with anyone, stays on the skins, he knows he is only 1 bad Alex Smith game away from being the starter again. Look - We screwed up with kirk. We paid a ton for 2 years under the tag, missed playoffs both years, and never got the LTD. So you know what you do when you find yourself in a hole??? STOP DIGGING!
  12. Alex Smith Trade Thread (Details Inside)

    so you think there is a team out there that would trade for him for 1 year at 28m knowing that they can not tag him in the off-season and he would probably want to test FA?? What team do you think would take that deal?
  13. Alex Smith Trade Thread (Details Inside)

    I think he would sign the tag and listen to other offers, and if hears one he likes, he would take it. Otherwise -he would take the risk that he is going to get paid 28m, and take a chance on the year. You are talking about a guy who after having the best season he ever had, took the skins to the playoffs, RISKED injury or going backwards to not sign a LTD. THEN - when he followed that year with a even better year (For him) he took the risk AGAIN that he would not have a drop off, not get injured, and didnt even bother to counter the Redskins offer because he would risk it. So if you are asking me if he would, for the 3rd straight year, take a chance that by the end of the year he will either have been the highest paid Backup QB ever, or that Alex smith will struggle and he will come in and do even better - then yes... I think Kirk Cousins has shown he is willing to bet on himself and doesnt get scared by bluffs.... MEANWHILE - the Redskins will be on the hook for 45m in salary cap for 2 QB's. Do you really think that is a Risk the Redskins are going to take???
  14. Alex Smith Trade Thread (Details Inside)

    The guy has made it super clear he wants to hit FA. He has had a 3 year plan of doing just that. You think hes going to give that up NOW????
  15. Alex Smith Trade Thread (Details Inside)

    BINGO - (Although it will be 28m vs 34m. Transition tag). Kirk would sign it ASAP. Meaning the skins cant pull and are now screwed. No one is gonna trade for KC for 28m for 1 year UNLESS they work out a extension. And KC has already stated over and over and over he WANTS to hit FA. He has spent the last 2 years betting on himself (really 3) and refusing to sign a LTD because he wants to hit free agency. You think faced with a "punishment" of sitting on the bench and collecting 28m (While every time Alex Smith makes a bad play fans start chanting for Kirk) will motivate him to give up his 3 years plan of hitting FA?? You are dreaming.
