  1. The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    http://www.rotoworld.com/articles/nfl/79956/57/nfls-best-gms-2018?pg=3 25. Bruce Allen/Doug Williams, Redskins How has Bruce Allen held off would-be usurpers since his restoration to the Redskins’ throne? By not hiring any. The Redskins no longer have a general manager. It’s Allen, owner Daniel Snyder and VP of player personnel Doug Williams. With no Scot McCloughans to rock the boat, the Redskins apparently prefer a power vacuum to a power structure. Coach Jay Gruden presumably does his part to fill it, too. The Redskins’ first GM-less season was a dreary 7-9 affair punctuated by their exile of Kirk Cousins, a man Allen once called Kurt. Upset that Cousins continued to bet on himself and win, the Redskins let him walk, making sure to besmirch him on his way out. His replacement is Alex Smith, a perfectly-fine quarterback who comes with a ceiling so hard the Chiefs saw fit to trade him after a career year. The Redskins have a .406 winning percentage since first hiring Allen in 2010, a number that drops to .364 if you exclude McCloughan’s two seasons at the helm. If Allen deserves to lead Washington’s front office, he’s yet to provide proof.

    He will probably need a redshirt year to get over the shoulder but he's good enough that he could step in and play in his second year, especially if he gets back to the point that he could actually get some reps in this year. If we are really looking at the longevity of the team then it is definitely something that should be considered. We can just as easily bring Long back on a cheap short term deal if his market doesn't develop, or just sign a cheap vet to the same kind of deal. Hell, we already kinda have that with Orlando Franklin. If he can get us through the year on the cheap while staying healthy then I would say that the signing worked out.

    Book it - Isaiah Wynn OG Georgia in the third round. Fits all the criteria for our 3rd round pick. - From an SEC school - Injured (tore his labrum in Senior Bowl practice) - Will be available later than projected due to the injury Not for nothin, but he also looked pretty good at the Senior Bowl while practicing with that torn labrum. Plug him into our lineup and our online is beast.

    So a couple of pages back someone said something about following the Eagles' plan. I want to have a team like them and the Jags. I'd be interested to see us do this: Vea in the first. Rashaan Evans/Taven Bryan in the second. Best rb in the third. Bpa the rest of the way with an emphasis on d. Give them a year to develop and see where we are. If we need another draft then keep building the team. Once the d gets to be a bully then I take my shot and try to get my qb. From there the window opens. I would extend guys like Scherff, Fuller, Moreau, Doctson, Allen, draft picks that might be in positions for extensions, etc. And go for it like the iggles. But since we know who is running the show that will never happen. I guess it's back to Madden...
  5. The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    I'm rooting for all of this to happen but I think it's going to take us bottoming out again for Dan to do something. And even then he will probably just elevate Doug or hire another of his buddies. I stand behind my previous statement. **** us all.
  6. The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    No he's not. Go back and read the tweet from a page or so ago. Bruce wants to hire a business executive so he can concentrate more on football ops. Face it folks, Bruce isn't going anywhere. **** us all.
  7. Will Cousins Play For The Skins In 2018

    http://www.nfl.com/photoessays/0ap3000000836634 Some good stuff in there. My favorite: Comeback king Matthew Stafford has seven more late game victories than any other quarterback over the last five seasons. The eight he accomplished last season set a single-season NFL record. With 25 career fourth quarter comebacks, Stafford has the most fourth quarter comebacks in the NFL since 2009. I'm sure it offends a bunch of people here but I'd take Stafford over Kirk without hesitation. Stafford just had the misfortune of getting drafted into the suck that was the Lions. I like Kirk, but I'm not willing to make him the highest paid guy in the history of the league. If we had a **** ton of cap space like the Jets then sure I'd say give him a front loaded deal that we can absorb and then build but it's not happening here. I've just resigned myself to the fact that he's gone and am looking at who can come in to replace him.
  8. Will Cousins Play For The Skins In 2018

    I don't think John Elway wants to wait another year. If he thinks he can win another super bowl with Cousins he will figure it out. There are teams with a extra picks (Cleveland, Buffalo). All it takes is one team to call and maybe we can get some offers. It's not outside the realm of possibility. I'm not even saying it's going to happen but there may come a time when the team realizes that they can either try to get better than a 3rd or let him play on another tag and walk for a comp pick.
  9. Will Cousins Play For The Skins In 2018

    Here's my thing, at this point we are going to have to grossly overpay to get Kirk to stay. I'm thinking it would take somewhere in the 29-30 apy with something like 90 guaranteed. My fear is that if we do a deal like that then we are going to be stuck in a situation like the Ravens were with Flacco. Flacco is far from elite but he got hot at the perfect time and had the Ravens over a barrel. They paid him and then they couldn't afford to keep guys they wanted to re-sign. That puts all the emphasis on hitting on a very high percentage of your draft picks. Does anyone have confidence in our front office to consistently hit when the Ravens had trouble doing it?
  10. Will Cousins Play For The Skins In 2018

    @bla bla bla Good stuff on the cap and how the Jets can make it work, but you never once gave your opinion as a Jets fan. Do you like Cousins as a qb? Do you think he can win you a super bowl? I agree with @Bonez3. I want to see the team make a good competitive offer to Kirk and let him decide. I'd offer him something just a little under what Stafford got. And Keenum fascinates me. He is playing out of his mind this year. He would pair well with both Doctson (throwing it up and letting him make plays) and Jamison (underneath yac). I could see Jay really liking him. Ultimately I think we see a tag and trade, but since we have zero leverage we won't get what we should for him. I could see maybe a 2 this and next year or a 2 this year and a 1 next year if we're lucky. Edit: Just read @bradboyd80's post and I do think that the fans leaving could be a deciding factor into maybe trying to keep Kirk. Maybe, juuuuuuuuust maybe, the front office is feeling the heat from the fans regarding letting Kirk walk like it's no big deal. The way I see it, Kirk is going to stare Bruce down all the way until they have to tag him. Tagging him removes all but the Browns, Bills, and Jets to try to trade him to so we would have to hope for a bidding war.

    Uh now that the Browns have Dorsey I think it's just us 🙁🔫
  14. 2018 Comprehensive NFL Draft Thread

    If we get near 10 we might have a shot at him. I think the giants are going to grab a qb since they will have a top 2 pick. Now if they trade down to say 8...
