  1. Anybody have a link to the full "conversation" on ESPN with Kirk? I can't find it. Nevermind, I found it.
  2. Thoughts: Su'a is a fairly special playmaker but seems like Chris Thompson early in his career when he just couldn't stay on the field. Everett has steadily improved, stays healthy and looks the part. I would ease cravens in as a nickel type player or as a situational player. Sucks with trent. I've been impressed with his improvement. Fortunately we have depth and barring further injuries we are still ok. More snaps for Anderson who, not surprisingly, looks game ready. Hopefully we resign Trent. Alabama rookies will contribute early and could be big time players by the end of the year. Nico is the obvious man crush for everyone and bottom line he fits that mold of football player we've been targeting. Forget about size, if he's consistently making plays he will continue to force the coaches to bump him higher.
  3. Nothing to see here. Reed does not need preseason reps and it's not worth injuring him in meaningless games anyway. In addition, we have a logjam of quality tight ends that the coaches need to see as many reps as possible to make the best decision on who to keep. I get the panic based on injury history but this one screams "great tactical move" to me.
  4. Maybe, IF that 53 was in addition to this years tag. 5 years at 25 per with something like $75 fully guaranteed as an extension AFTER playing this year on his fully guaranteed 24. Honestly I feel that it's always been about the fully guaranteed. And Kirk knows he's getting 24 this year and almost a guarantee of at least 28 next year 100% guaranteed. So why in the world would he agree to a contract that doesn't even really give him any new guaranteed money?
  5. I think we all would be given the price tag. But Bruce is screwing us long term by haggling over a few freaking million per year when the cap is only going up!
  6. HATE that Bruce is trying to pin it on Kirk and say it's clear he wants to play year to year. **** you bruce. Just another bridge built between the team and its best qb in what is closing on three decades.
  7. Any chance whatsoever of a deal or have all talks completely ceased?
  8. Ugh just went to and while page was loading a giant picture of cousins with his thumbs up appeared and my heart skipped as I thought maybe we got him signed...but nooooope reality came crashing back down
  9. I just don't get it. Even the detractors in the FO's main argument is they don't want to ruin the cap and be unable to build if they give money to Kirk. But just because Kirk costs more money this year than last it's still all relative. Yes, had we locked him up at an average of $21M that would have been better no questions asked. But even still at $25M per year average going forward the cap is only going to increase keeping the percentage of the cap he takes up manageable. Just freaking give him an extension - he plays this year for $24M fully guaranteed as part of the deal and at an absolute minimum gets another $40M fully guaranteed spread across the contract. That's still only $64M so there's still plenty more to give. I completely fail to see how not just offering the guy 5yr/$125M with $75M fully guaranteed isn't still a bargain. The other $50M can be incentives he should believe he can reach - 30tds a year, 5000 yards <12 interceptions etc This isn't rocket science and Kirk is clearly our guy.
  10. How do you feel about the Receiving corps?

    We have three very good receivers and two very good tight ends. Thus we are unlikely to see many formations with more than three receivers and if we do have spread formations it likely will still be three receivers and then tight ends to keep the best players on the field. If one of our too three receivers got hurt I don't think we'd see a ton of grant or quick but likely our game plan would change to feature the tight ends more. It's just about utilizing your best players. Realistically the only time we should see receivers outside of Pryor Doctson and crowder is if one of them needs a breather.
  11. How do you feel about the Receiving corps?

    If everyone is healthy then we should almost never go more than three receivers on the field with Reed and Davis being better than our #4 receiver. But I get your point if someone gets hurt. I can't stand Ryan grant but I think he's the most obvious choice of who would fill in at slot since he apparently "knows" the position (or how to fall down at every spot on the field). But more to the point if Crowder was hurt the offense would certainly change and instead of someone filling his role we would just shift to feature Doctson Pryor and Reed more and we'd probably see a lot more two receiver two tight end looks til he came back.
  12. I like the idea of harvey-clemons too. I've heard a little positive news about him. Likely a ps squad guy at least best but great size with room to add weight to play nickel or dime linebacker. Nicholson has very good size for a safety too. People can look at this like too many dbs all they want. I'm just glad we finally have depth. If our fourth and fifth corners are moreau and Dunbar that's excellent. We actually have quality DEPTH at corner, safety, tight end, dline, linebackers (especially outside backers), qb and rb. Some will disagree about all of these - dline may only have one stud and he's a rookie but nearly everyone has experience and are not just castoffs. I know people hate on Compton but if he or foster are backups they are at least quality backups albeit not what you want at starter. These couple groups could upgrade the starters but you're not gonna be stacked at every position. Point is, we have quality DEPTH and can survive injuries.
  13. I wouldn't say it's much of a slight. We finished with about the 18th or 19th best record last year. So it's not like they dropped us twenty spots and winning one more than half your games in two years doesn't earn you much respect. The eagles jumping that high is pretty crazy but I'd say nothing else as far as east teams is too nuts. I feel very positive about the off-season but until we pump out a double digits win season or take a game or two in the playoffs no one is going to believe and that's truly how it should be.
  14. We are very clearly committed to finding and keeping a hybrid player that can cover tight ends and rb's. Cravens, Harvey-Clemons and Marley. A couple others that are hybrid types as well. Can't say I'm against either.
  15. Those two things plus history. Even just going off last year - the Cowboys and Giants were the top two teams in the division (barf) and I would say the Giants got better again this offseason - their offense will be tough to stop unless Eli completely implodes. It would be tough to argue the Cowboys got better after all they lost (defensive secondary and offensive line) but they did pick up some good backend players in the draft. Bottom line though is that the Redskins have not given the media any reason to trust them in a long, long time. We STILL have not gone to the playoffs in consecutive seasons in over 25 years and we JUST came off our second straight winning campaign for the first time in that same timeframe...and even that has somewhat of an asterisk given that we only won 8 games. Winning season, yes, but we technically only won half our games and lost at the end in a play-in game. We got better this offseason for sure and our defense is finally starting to look like it COULD at least be respectable but other teams in our division got better as well and it was already the best division in football record-wise last year. No one is going to respect the Redskins in the media or around the league until they show several years of continued success and actually prove themselves a threat in the postseason (i.e. win a couple playoff games...and not Mark Brunell vs. the Bucs style either). As much as it pains me to say it we need to stop saying the media disrespects us or doesn't show us this so-called "deserved" respect. What we have earned is zero trust or belief...that does not come with 17 wins over 32 games with 0 playoff victories in two seasons and really being an afterthought for the better part of the past 25+ years. We are on our way and I think can all be proud of the past couple years and continued improvement but we are a long way still from earning trust/respect on a national level.
