  1. Reed?? What the heck!
  2. I'm fine being the underdog, but i'm definitely not buying the 5-11 season prediction. I am very optimistic about this year. In fact, I believe this could easily be the best roster the Redskins have had in the last 20 years. Barring catastrophic injuries I would be very very disappointed if we are not at least in the wild card picture, because in my opinion that would mean we severely underachieved.
  3. First off, yes I do agree the first offer could have been better. Not arguing that. Now, I also don't believe that is was so bad that people should be offended. It was a lot of money, and as pointed out he has not been tagged a third time yet, so that money from a third tag is only hypothetical. It was definitely a starting point for negotiation. From my point a view, it would have been in good taste from Kirk's side to come to the table with a counter offer. That is how you keep the negotiating ball rolling. I think with more effort from both sides the deal could have been done, but the ball stopped in Kirk's court and never got rolling again. "Reportedly". This could be untrue.
  4. Then you come back with counter offer that has 2 more years of guaranteed money, and hopefully you meet somewhere in between with 3 years of guaranteed money. Simple negotiation.
  5. Yes, that would be considered a fair market deal if Kirk wanted to be here. If he doesn't want to be here, then those numbers still don't get the deal done. Again, from my point of view, if you don't counter offer to try to get to those numbers, then it looks as if you don't want to be here to bad. I wish it wasn't so, I want Kirk here under a LTD. To me it looks as if he already has one foot out the door.
  6. That is a terrible comparison and you know it. He was offered millions of dollars, come back to the table and negotiate. In a negotiation a smart person doesn't start with there best offer, you negotiate to a number that works for both sides.
  7. There is nothing hypothetical about my statement. What I said was fact, we do not know what Kirk's camp wanted, or what it would have taken to get a LTD. There is nothing hypothetical about that. I think that if Kirk wanted a long term deal, his camp could have made it happen. Not coming to the table with a counter offer was very unproductive regardless if they were "offended" by the first offer. I don't think Kirk wants to be a Skin in 2018, or he would not be under the tag today, and it sucks!
  8. While I appreciate your efforts. And I don't disagree with your hypothetical answer. Kirk's camp to the best of my knowledge never once put out an asking price publicly, and they reportedly never made a counter offer to the Redskins as well. So no, we still do not know if those numbers would have made Kirk stay or not. Period!
  9. Oh, so you didn't have inside information that no one else had back in February, got it. No we don't know what Kirk's camp was asking.
  10. What was it then that Kirk said he would be willing to take back in February??? I missed that one I guess.
  11. It sure would have been nice if Kirk's camp would have come back to the table with a counter offer. At some point both sides needed to put egos aside and work towards a final figure. It takes 2 to tango. Without the counter offer, we have no idea what Kirk's number really was. Unfortunately if Kirk really wanted to be here long term, I think it would have happened today, but here we are on the one year tag.
  12. IMO the offer wasn't a low ball offer. But sure act like other QB's don't negotiate there contracts so the team still has a bright future.
  13. Someone beat you to it. I'm at work and doing my best to keep up. I am a very disappointed fan today of this whole situation just like everyone else.
  14. So he is basically screwing over the Redskins franchise with this game he is playing, instead of taking a great offer that would also have the future of the organization in good interests moving forward. Yeah that sucks, that's why I think Kirk is being greedy, im a Redskins fan, I want to see the team thrive, not be wrapped around one players finger.
  15. Break those numbers down for us then Mr. KnowItAll. Would love to see it.
