  1. The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    Sigh. Checked in this thread and regret it. Same people that dogged the MGMT for letting Chris Baker walk. And take a look at how his time was spent in Tampa. Hint: loafing. If y'all don't get it right the first time you'll never cease to amaze me with your ways of pinning the tail back on your ex future father in-law (aka Snyder/current GM)
  2. Alex Smith Trade Thread (Details Inside)

    I wonder if Smith's terms were that whatever team he goes to doesn't draft a FIRST round QB or that they draft no QBs at all? I mean, a first round QB is a lot closer to getting on the field than say a 4th-5th rounder. Reason I ask is because I think this is a good class for a developmental QB. Like the Lauletta kid from Richmond. A raw project QB drafted in the 4th or 5th would be perfect as he would likely be ready right around Smith's on his way out...
  3. Which wide receiver would you like Washington to get?

    The majority of free agent signings don't pan out. For that very reason you don't go all in on FA. Keep doing what we have been and hope 1 or 2 pan out from each off-season's signings and take solace in the fact that even if the majority don't pan out you didn't screw yourself by overpaying. Continue to focus on the draft... Especially with wide receiver. I feel like it's gotta be the worst position as far as boom/bust free agents
  4. 2018 Comprehensive NFL Draft Thread

    I also believe that if there is any QB that fits the mold you look for to groom under a veteran without being drafted too high to cause controversy this year it's Kyle Lauletta. Unfortunately after his senior bowl performance I doubt he'd last until the 4th round. Maybe he will, who knows. As of right now he's the only QB I like to bring along under Smith. Perhaps we trade back in the 1st and pick up the 3rd rounder needed to draft him, or we get lucky and he lasts until our 4th rounder. The only drawback I see to Lauletta is that he may not possess the wheels Gruden looks for in his ideal QB. The other knock I see on him is his arm strength, but that's also a knock on Smith. Didn't see any duck balls from the tape I watched either... Kid also had a different OC every year he played at Richmond and has played under center. Very interesting QB prospect
  5. 2018 Comprehensive NFL Draft Thread

    Is this the year that the stars align and gives us a true Nose Tackle, one that is scheme versatile and can stay on the field when we're in nickel like we are the majority of the time? Vita Vea and Payne could both play NT, play next to Allen in nickel at DT, and still be athletic enough to play end in heavy 4 DL sets at LE. Something like LE - Vea/Payne DT- Allen, DT-Ioannidis, RE-Kerrigan. Or flip Ioannidis/Allen to LE instead of Payne/Vea... Either way... We'd quickly become a very versatile front on the line allowing for all kinds of interesting stunts and confusing looks. All the while still giving us the Nose we've lacked but have been reluctant to spend high picks on due to the small percentage of snaps we are in a true 3-4. The athleticism of Vea in-particular kills two birds with one stone and justifies the high pick. I'm just not sure I'm sold on the WR talent at #13, and can't bring myself to advocate for a RB in the 1st round. Especially when this draft seems to be pretty deep at both positions. I like DJ Chark at WR and apparently we met with the RB from SDSU at the senior bowl as well. Penny and Chark could also give us a couple new faces to try out at KR/PR as well.
  6. Which wide receiver would you like Washington to get?

    I'd rather continue with our free agency approach of low cost/high ceiling/high risk guys with contracts that are easy to get out of. Not sure who fits that bill as far as free agents go at WR this year as I haven't had a chance to really sink my teeth into free agents. But I really like the DJ Chark kid from LSU. Give me him or a different speedy WR to compliment Doctson on the outside, trade Jordan Reed, and draft Caleb Wilson or Troy Fumagelli to groom under Vernon Davis. Oh and a lead back in the 2nd round. I hear we spoke with the kid from SDSU at the senior bowl... That's my (very) early off-season wish-list
  7. Alex Smith Trade Thread (Details Inside)

    Ok, a lot of the misinformation touted as fact by those bashing this trade is getting on my nerves after listening to callers on sports talk radio today. First off, Smith signed an extension not a new contract so he will be making the 17 million he was scheduled to make from his previous deal. Not only will we have waaayyy more cap room than some seem to think, it will pale in comparison to the cap number of Kirk's eventual deal. Also, the other guys some are saying they would have rather had under center instead of Smith (save for Colt, obviously) would have commanded around the same salary since they would have signed new deals in the current QB market. I'm sorry but you can't tell me Alex Smith at 17 mil isn't a better value than Bridgewater, Keenum, or Bradford at 15-18 mil. Not only that, but as has been repeated but continuously ignored is the fact that the contract details are yet to be known for the extension. I suspect it will be team friendly, with the majority of the total guarantees only in the event of injury or if he is on the roster by x-date in the 3rd or 4th year of the deal. Effectively making it a 2 year deal perfect for grooming a young QB under. And you'd be hard pressed to tell me there is/was a better option out there to tutor a young QB than Smith, and one that fits Grudens system better than Smith as well. But keep getting hung up on Fuller being part of the deal. There were SIX teams interested in Smith with the original asking price being a 2nd rounder. We got him for a third and unfortunately had to give up a young player in order to beat the other teams bidding, but we did mitigate the loss somewhat by making it a player from one of our deepest position groups.
  8. Alex Smith Trade Thread (Details Inside)

    Alex Smith allows you to keep the team competitive and not lose the locker room due to lack of confidence in the QB. The guys some are suggesting as the guys theyd rather have instead of Smith are laughable. Bradford, Keenum, Colt, Bridgewater. All those guys would force you to play the rookie you were planning on grooming and bringing along slowly like we've seen happen way too often. Alex Smith is in the EXACT same Tier as Cousins. Oh Smith has never done much in the playoffs? News flash neither has Cousins, and those 3rd tier "stop gap" names you're suggesting certainly haven't either. What he does provide is stability and an end to the Circus that constantly surrounded Cousin's contract saga. He easily has 2 or 3 years of good QB play left in him and if anyone thinks Kirk would have signed for what Smith did you're on drugs. Sure it sucks we lost Fuller, you have to pay to get a pro bowl caliber QB, regardless of age.

    They could structure the deal to make the first year cap hit minimal (which would be temporary until trade is completed anyway) And I'm also not positive but if a team can be over the cap until the start of the league year it would also allow for a sign and trade.
  10. Alex Smith Trade Thread (Details Inside)

    Amen. I'm done arguing with people who can't do anything but default to the same old Redskins narrative that is exacerbated by local media that know this is how the fanbase is conditioned and therefore will do anything to tie any and all moves back to said narrative since it gets clicks and moves the needle.
  11. Alex Smith Trade Thread (Details Inside)

    Who did we offer a contract to play for peanuts? Who has played well and got traded? Current era front office citations only please. I'm expecting some names like Garcon or Jackson. Which immediately is an ignorant argument because neither were home-grown draft picks and both were over 30 years old when we let them walk. But I guess smart teams play aging wideouts QB money, right? Or maybe Chris Baker? How did the buccaneers do again this year?
  12. Alex Smith Trade Thread (Details Inside)

    And give me a break on the overly sensitive bs that you're done with the team because you think it's awful Fuller had to find out through Twitter. You know how many times players walked out to practice only to find out they were headed to a new team the same day? Life moves fast, take off your training wheels and stop crying. WAKE UP AND REALIZE THE MEDIA POURS GAS ON NARRATIVES LIKE THESE TO GET FANS FIRED UP AGAINST THE EASY TARGET WHICH IS THE FRONT OFFICE BEING THE VILLAN. All they have to do is quote a couple tweets from teammates sad to see them go, even though in reality the players all know the NFL is a harsh, unfair league and anyone can get walked or traded at any time... AND YOU ALL FALL FOR IT HOOK LINE AND SINKER EVERY DAMN TIME. I mean has anyone watched hard knocks?
  13. Alex Smith Trade Thread (Details Inside)

    1. Yeah because we've traded up anytime recently. And haven't actually gotten rid of every locker room problem/distraction. The latest being cousins himself. 2. Alex Smith is actually the only player recently we've given up picks or assets for. Unfortunately it was the cost of getting stability at QB but giving up draft picks and trading up in the draft is far from our M.O. lately. Quite the opposite actually. 3. Will be replaced with a compensatory 3rd rounder and don't get the joke on bama defenders. Short memory because we took two great ones in the most recent draft you can remember (last year's) maybe? 4. Unlikely, we already showed up blocking TE with the excellent selection of Jeremy sprinkle. 5-7ths are crapshoots to begin with but have actually done better than most in those rounds as of late as well. These Redskins stereotypes are stale and old and people need to think for themselves instead of going with the herd on team opinion. News flash, the media is always gonna bag on the skins. The majority of the aging fanbase who witnessed the SB era teams are cynical as well.
  14. Alex Smith Trade Thread (Details Inside)

    Saving much compared to what? You knew what Kirk was going to sign for? And know how the contract is structured? Could easily be backloaded with an out after two years easily allowing for plenty of moves to be made for the upcoming season.
  15. Alex Smith Trade Thread (Details Inside)

    Stability at QB is worth way more than most are giving credit for. And it's a joke if you would have rather had Bridgewater or Bradford than Alex Smith LOL. For example. Make this trade take place last season, replace Fuller with Jamison Crowder. Fanbase loses its mind. Replace Fuller with Crowder in the trade that actually took place?= Solid move for the skins! Jamison wasnt all we thought he was! And how many rookie phenoms at skill positions are one year wonders or get injured and never return to form? The value at QB is way higher than a corner. A position we actually are solid at, have a draft pick in Fabian Moreau who we must like (the same coaching staff that liked Fuller when others didn't, btw), and could easily draft another. Another year of a circus at QB, letting more talent than just one player walk because you let your QB strongarm you into another franchise tag. WE WOULD HAVE LOST MORE OVERALL TALENT IF WE TAGGED KIRK PEOPLE. Jesus
