  1. Will Cousins Play For The Skins In 2018

    I don't think the NeverKirkers or He'sNotWorthTop5MoneyGuys know football. I am not excited about the possibility of losing Cousins either. I think if they let Kirk move on Cousins will sign with a strong franchise and thrive and the Redskins will really tank. I don't want them to tank and will be pleased if they succeed, I just expect the bottom to fail out if Kirk leaves.

    One of if not the most coherent and credible statements Griffin ever made.
  3. Will Cousins Play For The Skins In 2018

    3 more games and then 3 months of Dan Snyder sitting on his hands amidst a steady stream of stupid news stories until Snyder makes a decision to transition tag Kirk or not. If Snyder decides to tag him Kirks play another year for 29M, I think the chance of him signing an offer sheet with another club while under the transition tag is zero. if Snyder doesn't tag Kirk I think Cousins bolts for a strong franchise, not the biggest offer, which is why I am confident he will not sign an offer sheet while transition tagged. Part of me really wants to see what the team could do in 2018 with reasonable health so even if it is just another stupid transition tag year. Another part of me wants this impasse finally ended even if it means my favorite player by far moves on because I am sick of this story and it might be really fun to follow Kirk with a good franchise. I assume Kirk is going to pick a strong team if free to choose rather than tie himself to a loser for the biggest deal. I don't expect the Skins to manfully announce in the short term that they will be moving on from Cousins because that would be the decent and honorable thing to do, when has Snyder ever done that? Snyder will want to feel in charge by kicking the can down the road as long as he can so I don't expect to know until March 15 or whatever the deadline is for tagging a guy.

    Option 1, drafting a guy with McCoy serving as a transitional guy makes more sense to me than Option 2, a veteran FA. What quality FA would want to jump into this situation?
  5. Will Cousins Play For The Skins In 2018

    With 133 votes recorded 70 expect him to be gone and 63 expect him back in 2018. I am surprised the voting is so even. Another factor for Synder to consider is attendance in the league appears to be way down this year. Some due to the pledge of allegiance controversy, some because the local team is out of it this year and also because attending a game is losing its appeal. When Snyder started out 20 years ago he could mess up any way he wanted and the stadium would be packed. Year after year, coach after coach and the stadium was packed, now the whole thing looks pretty fragile. Even without an impasse with his franchise QB, Synder would be sweating the renewals because of the declining attendance overall. I voted that Snyder will let Cousins walk, it will be a long wait to March.
  6. Will Cousins Play For The Skins In 2018

    Another frustrating and disappointing day. I've got two thoughts, I wonder what this team would have done if it had managed to stay reasonably healthy and two what would this team look like if it had really gotten value for the 3 first round and 1-second pick it threw away for nothing. Yeah, I know it is foolish to cry about spilled milk but I am still following the Skins after 20 years of Snyder so foolish is a given, everyone reading this is foolish also. It's dumber for me since I had enough experience to recognize Snyder's gross ineptitude out of the gate but I am still here so I am still going to **** about it. Put 3 more decent first rounders and a second rounder on this roster with reasonable health and it would be a lot better, a lot better team. The 2012 epic screw-up is still hurting this club, pissing away 4 high picks that a smart owner could have used to build an epic OL or DL still hurts this club and will hurt the club for more years to come. An utterly ridiculous trade with a decade-long impact and Synder is going to exponentially compound his idiocy losing by Cousins.
  7. Latest FA Disappointment: Josh Norman

    Is Norman playing hurt? I dunno but it hurts to watch him. I don't what the hell he was doing on that 75 yard TD pass today. On that 75 yard TD pass, Norman is 20-30 yards down the field and looking back at the QB instead of the receiver that is opening up a 10-yard gap on him. I don't know if Norman is looking back because he's thinking he's going have to provide run support or what but he totally lost the receiver he had single coverage on, I don't know what to think. Every guy is going to get beat once in a while but Norman looking back at the QB while his man is opening up an impossible gap just looks to like horrible technique to an uninitiated guy like me.

    Yeah, of course, that is so relevant now....... I wonder if Kirk goes to the Pro Bowl again this year

    A transition tag kicks the can down the road for another year. A cowardly way to postpone a reckoning, you might be right.
  10. The Jordan Reed Non-Factor

    When Reed is healthy enough to play he is a real difference maker but the Skins can't count on him because of his recurring health issues. The Skins seem to be hoping for the best and given their contract commitment perhaps that is all they can do. Sometimes it is just like that with a talented guy, tremendous when able to suit up but unable to suit up often enough. I don't want to see Reed on the field again this season unless there is some unexpected massive collapse in the NFC and an 8-7 Redskins team can make it to the playoffs with a win against the Giants in the finale.

    I am with you, it will be the end of the line for me also if it is over I am over it.
  12. Will Cousins Play For The Skins In 2018

    Please express your view of what the Skins will do with Cousins after the season not what you think should be done.
  13. How do you feel about the Receiving corps?

    Pryor was a bust, Doctson is contributing now but clearly, this unit needs help.
  14. I think Snyder should do the following: 1. Between now and the end of the season say all the supportive things he can to Cousins and within the organization. 2. Leak through the media how the Redskins totally support Cousins and will make him a huge offer after the year. 3. Enhance the amount and guarantee that Stafford got and offer it to Cousins immediately after the season. If he agrees to sign do so with great joy and fanfare! 4. If he refuses to sign ask him and his agent what if anything will induce him to sign a 5-year deal. Do whatever big 5-year deal variation Cousins will sign. Consider the overage the penalty Synder deserves for stringing Kirk along so long. If Cousins refuses to sign a 5-year deal at any price then thank him for his service, wish him well with his career and manfully announce the reason for the parting of the ways graciously. 5. Hire a GM with authority and announce Allen's focus is the new stadium. 6. Have the new GM consider free agent options and if there is one that can run Gruden's office well sign him. 7. Use the draft to improve the running game by improving the interior of the OL, running back and receiver position. I don't think a transition or franchise tag to keep Cousins another season is worth it, the Redskins should bite the bullet and move on if Cousins wants to leave.
