  1. Redskins vs Eagles Prediction Thread: 2017-18 Kick-Off Spectacular

    If it's that type of injury, I don't see how he is not listed on the injury report.
  2. Redskins vs Eagles Prediction Thread: 2017-18 Kick-Off Spectacular

    Reed hasn't been on the injury report this week. Either they've been dodging the reporting requirement or the toe can be treated with pain killers without risking further injury.
  3. Welcome to the Redskins Nate Sudfeld QB Indiana

    I don't believe that he specified the NFL draft.
  4. Welcome to the Redskins Nate Sudfeld QB Indiana

    There is zero chance that Suds gets picked off waivers. Every team in the league has a guy like him, someone who showed a little flash against 4th stringers. If anything, the Skins should be monitoring the waiver wire to see if there is an upgrade at backup QB.
  5. Should The Redskins Trade For LeSean McCoy?

    HIs salary for this year and is around $6M (not guaranteed), which would be about the Skin's entire remaining cap space for 2017 (with a small adjustment for the player he replaces on the roster). At 29, coming off a season where he averaged 5.4 ypc on 234 carries, he's unlikely to take a voluntary pay cut. My guess is that if he's traded, it will be to the Packers.
  6. Like I said **** Jason Taylor (M.E.T)

    This is why Jason Taylor is in the Hall of Fame. Only one player near him in sacks isn't in the Hall - that being Leslie O'Neal. He didn't play poorly on purpose when he was on the Skins, it just wasn't a good scheme for his abilities. And he didn't disrespect the Skins in any way during his speech. All-Time Sack Leaders with Non-Eligible Players Removed (+ indicates HOF) Bruce Smith+ 200.0 1985-2003 Reggie White+ 198.0 1985-2000 Kevin Greene+ 160.0 1985-1999 Chris Doleman+ 150.5 1985-1999 Michael Strahan+ 141.5 1993-2007 Jason Taylor+ 139.5 1997-2011 Richard Dent+ 137.5 1983-1997 John Randle+ 137.5 1990-2003 Leslie O'Neal 132.5 1986-1999 Lawrence Taylor+ 132.5 1981-1993 Rickey Jackson+ 128.0 1981-1995 Derrick Thomas+ 126.5 1989-1999 Taylor getting in has nothing to do with Jacoby not getting in. Jacoby isn't in because: (1) there is no overriding objective metric for OL and (2) the subjective metrics - 4 Pro Bowls and 2 All-Pro First Teams - don't play in Jacoby's favor. There are a lot of OLs with more than 2 AP1s and a lot of OLs with 2 AP1s that have more PBs. The biggest thing in his favor is the 80's All-Decade Team - it's hard to argue that someone could be the best player in a decade but not one of the best of all-time. The three SB rings are nice, but the majority of the HOF voters are connected to constituencies without multiple SB wins and they are constantly trying to fight the urge to over-represent the dynasties in order to get in players whose individual accomplishments are overlooked. I think they see Grimm as representing the Hogs. If it makes anyone feel better, and it won't, Bob Kuechenberg has been nominated 8 times and never made it to the semi-finals.
  7. I think that most of the blame needs to be placed on the paint and the room. Bruce appears to be doing a stellar job of applying the paint to the floor.
  8. It's my understanding that if you transition tag a player and fail to match the offer sheet, you get no compensatory pick for losing the tagged FA. Not that a 3rd rounder is fair compensation, but it's something.
  9. People are dangling by the thin, rapidly fraying thread that the FO knows what it's doing and that the worst case scenario is paying Cousins $28M next year, even if another team makes an offer they can't match. I think its best just to let them hold on to these hopes.
  10. I understand that you were relaying what Cooley said, but I want to clarify some things. The numbers and any other principal terms (incentives, no trade clauses,...) must be exactly the same. There are no subjective determinations about whether the "matching" offer is just as good or pays just as well in the aggregate. The poison pill exception applies only to cases where the contract language states rights and obligations for the New Club that would be different from rights and obligations of the Old Club if identical language was used. Cooley doesn't have any superior knowledge from people he has talked to - right of first refusal is set out in Article 9, Section 3 of the the Collective Bargaining Agreement of 2011. The poison pill language is defined in Article 9, Section 3(e)(iii): If Cooley has been talking to people in the FO and they don't know that a matching offer really does need to match, we're in a lot of trouble.
  11. Also, scaring a player into signing a contract to protect his future income from injury is a lot more effective on players signing their first non-rookie contract than it is on players who have just made $44M guaranteed money over two years, along with additional endorsement money.
  12. Not to mention the concept of insurance. Michael Lombardi estimated the cost of a policy to cover future losses from an injury this year would be about $500K. I'm sure there would be a significant deductible and some objective criteria to determine losses. For a guy who has never had a significant injury in the NFL and isn't the type who takes on tacklers, it seems to be a reasonable approach.
  13. This is what I was thinking, but I group 1 and 2 together. Don't impede free agency, just win the beauty contest. At this point, I don't see Kirk making a LTD except in an open market.
  14. There is a compensatory formula that assigns draft choice based on FAs you lost and FA you signed in a given year. Compensatory picks come at the end of rounds 3-7, they aren't taken from the teams that gained in free agency.
