  1. Name someone other than Crowder whose production has exceeded his draft position. I'll throw in Kelley too. I'm not angry about him being fired. I'm disappointed that the team makes such poor decisions at the management level. If you are going to hire a known alcoholic, you can't take his word that he's got it under control. And look the other way when he's drinking on the job. And then cover it up with ridiculous stories that only the most hardened fans don't scoff at.
  2. I agree that McClain is a decent player, one who has worked hard to resurrect his career. But he's not a $5M/year player. Someone will need to explain to me why we dropped $5M on McGee though.
  3. It really wasn't. They should have made the offer conditional on abstention and tested him regularly. When you're an addict, your addiction takes precedence over everything else. His draft classes are no better than the online draft quides. Finding a starting guard with the #5 pick is hardly an achievement. Crowder remains the only pick that played better than his draft position warranted.
  4. If you hire a known alcoholic who says he's not an alcoholic and insists that he's resolved past problems by drinking beer... well, you deserve whatever you get. If this were another team in the division, we'd be laughing our collective asses off at their abject stupidity.
  5. One of the reasons Dallas was "excellent" against the run is that they played 10 of 16 games against teams that didn't run the ball all that much (#20 or above on attempts). My bigger concern is that McClain played on less than 45% of the defensive snaps. McGee played on 21% of Oakland's snaps. That's a lot of money for part time players. Baker played on over 70% of Washington's snaps.
  6. I'm going to miss his wife. If the Skins had any sense, they would have made her Director of Communications.
  7. McClain started last year (his first starts since 2011), but Dallas rotates their lineman more than most teams. He's just another guy that Dallas found on his sofa in September and turned into a decent player. Not a bad pickup, but not worth $5M/year.
  8. I predict that by the end of the day, a plan will be announced along with a FA signing, probably Terrell McClain. It will be made clear that they love, love, love Kirk Cousins and are working around the clock to sign him to a LTD. They also love Scot and appreciate what he's done, but it's time to move on and they wish him a lot of luck. They'll give him severance pay in excess of what they've agreed upon, so he keeps his mouth shut - not only about the draft, but about life in the Skins FO. SM is a young guy and its in his best interest to keep his mouth shut anyway. And a lot of people will believe every word.
  9. I may be wrong, but I think Jones was just kidding about Allen making up the Romo trade to deflect interest from SM. If anything, the trade story highlighted how important it is to have a fully functional GM in place.
  10. Maybe something like this would work?
  11. "2Years" should be SM's license plate. Hard to blame anyone else at this point.
  12. It means he has no obligations to the team whatsoever. Maybe he'd like the coaches to watch Suds tossing bombs to Maurice Harris for a few practices and see the ghost of future seasons without him. The Jets would definitely trade for someone on a one year rental. They have no viable QBs on their roster. They won't give up a ton, but if things regress with the Skins, they may take what they can get. I'd play for Cleveland before I played for the Jets.
  13. Unless he's having problems paying his electricity bill, he doesn't need to sign now. He'll do that well in almost any situation. Until he signs, he's in complete control over any trade negotiations and, if he'd like to stay in Washington, he can put the heat on.
  14. Why would Kirk sign the franchise tag tender when there are rumors that the FO is talking with other teams about a trade? That would be crazy.
  15. He was never on the roster. After he was cut by the Seahawks in preseason 2014, he worked out with the Skins, and a number of other teams, but nobody signed him that year. And, at the time, he was still considered a quarterback.
