  1. Per Schefter: Su'a Cravens Considering Retirement

    "No need for this thread anymore" he said, thereby bumping it back up to the top of the forum.
  2. Thanks. Again, to clarify, when you use the term "mental illness" are you referring to an actual mental illness separate from "loving to play, hating the grind"? Because that to me is just immaturity/laziness. If what you're saying is true and the full story, kid sounds like an idiot. Taking your ball and going home sounds great until you realize just how expendable you really are, and just how quick that door shuts for good.
  3. This story makes sense to me, but just to clarify, is the above based on inside information or your personal speculation? Hail

    C'est la vie. Au revoir, Su'a! Here's the biggest opportunity of your career, Deshazor! Best of luck!
  5. Common Kirk....I just don't know....

    I have zero appetite to pay Kirk what I think he will undoubtedly ask for and get from the open market in the offseason. In my mind, he's absolutely gone at the end of the season and I'm A-OK with that. Looking forward to seeing the rest of the team grow and intrigued at whom we'll draft and whom we'll sign/promote to fill the stop-gap.

    Hmm, that's odd. I thought CW and JS were boys? I guess not. I still miss Kevin, lol. Would love to follow his input throughout this Kirk saga.

    FWIW. according to jsteelz "Right now even with talks, feel is Cravens will indeed hang them up"
  8. Kirk has no ability to make plays under pressure.
  9. We are the dumbest ****ing team.
  10. You keep operating on the premise that the team was anchored to its initial offer and I don't know why. Cousins could have countered to see if the Skins increased their offer. It costs you nothing to counter. There's no reason not to, unless you don't want to sign a deal.
  11. Highest guaranteed $ in NFL history and 2nd highest AAV is defensible. It's low, but it is defensible. Look, this really isn't complicated. If you want to get a deal done, you counter to keep the negotiation going. Ask for $28, ask for $30, you ask for something. Letting time lapse without making an effort to get something done means you don't care if a deal happens or not. I'm not saying the organization is blameless, but I think you're putting on blinders here. It takes two to tango. I think Kirk decided he didn't like the situation in Washington and would only stay if he got PAAAAIIIIID.
  12. I didn't say he should have accepted it, I said he should have COUNTERED. The organization's offer was the lowest defensible offer. Kirk's camp knew if they countered, it would get the Redskins FO to move. They didn't even bother. That's not reading what I want into the situation, it's plainly clear.
  13. Cousins not countering tells me he was never planning on signing a deal this year unless it was stupid expensive. I wanted Kirk to sign a LTD but I'm not gonna cry that it didn't happen. He's not Brady. If / when he leaves, we'll find someone else. The cap space will be re-allocated to building an elite defense. I don't hate that vision, though it wasn't my first choice.
  14. Particularly a pocket QB who gets the ball out of his hands extremely quickly behind a good O-Line and didn't start the first few years of his career (much less mileage).
