  1. Yeah, if the market for ILB's was remotely the same as it is for QBs. But it's not and it never will be.

    One thing I hope to never do is look for Fred Smoot to support my point of view.
  3. It wasn't meant as a slight. My point was that he was pretty damn good before he got here and we got him cheap late in free agency. I'm not sure why all the sudden a team would pay anywhere near 10M for a MLB that's not Luke Keichly.
  4. I like Brown and want to keep him, but I do feel we overrate him as an overall player because of how bad that position has been since London left. I don't see how what he did here really changes his situation any from a free agency perspective. He was a sure tackler that can make up ground and stop the run before he got here. Yet we ended up with him for under 3M late in free agency. I can't see his deal exceeding 6M per season. I think he's the first guy the team resigns.

    RB&G doesn't really debate, he just says stuff. With that said, I'd venture a guess that RB&G is a big Mayfield fan. I'd imagine he's seen as a "warrior" or something of that nature. The right guy to unite the team for the common goal of...blah blah.

    No, actually I just see how often your hot takes are mocked, laughed at and disregarded by a number of people here, and I'm sure everywhere else too.

    Nah man, wins and losses are only for quarterbacks. Duh.

    We think you're funny too, it's all good.
  9. The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    In a conversation evaluating Bruce's role as GM, you cannot exclude the handling of Cousins. That conversation absolutely belongs here. Yes, Bruce has F'd up many things that I as well as many other have discussed ad nauseum. That's kind of the point of why we think you're borderline nuts for grading him a C. Grading him up against the Vinny curve is the only way I can see that as a rational grade. Under Bruce, we're not making Albert Haynesworth deals, we have a better draft strategy overall, but there is still a lot to be desired. A lot.

    You've been waiting for this for decades. Think about that for a moment.
  11. The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    Yeah, you can't give a pass for the most important position on the team. I also don't see how Cousins gets any blame for not being signed, that's the FO's job.

    I'll go on record that I want absolutely nothing to do with Baker Mayfield. Hopefully another team will save the Redskins from themselves and select him before they can, or god forbid they trade up to secure his services. It would be so Redskins.

    @bobandweave I think the point of the statement about what's earned is based around the fact that the only reason Cousins is here is due to someone who hasn't been with the organization in 4 years. Be rest assured that if it was up to solely Bruce Allen, there isn't a chance in hell that we draft Kirk Cousins in the 4th round after giving up the farm for Griffin in the same draft. We thought we were outsmarting people by giving up 3 firsts for Griffin and ended up getting lucky that we took Kirk in the 4th. That's what it boils down to. Perhaps he could have chose different verbiage but I get the impression that's what he meant. You may see franchise tagging him two, maybe 3 years in a row as some sort of debt that he needs to repay the Redskins. But that's just not how NFL players see it at all.

    He can speak for himself, but what I got out of it is that the team went out of their way to ship 3 1st round picks for RG3 and Shanahan took a flyer on Kirk in the 4th. Kirk was pretty much an afterthought that ended up being a pretty good parting gift from Shanahan.

    Building a football roster is a different beast. Particularly considering the franchise tag was going to be used, giving up 20M for one season already. So that 44M in guarantees is already down to 24M, the amount of the tag that was in play for 2017. At worst the Skins were on the hook for two seasons of Kirk at roughly 22M per, when they were already on the hook for 20 for one. At best, they got to pay him 19M for 5 seasons. Not only does it show a lack of decisiveness, it also shows the lack of foresight in regards to where the NFL and the salary cap were going....by folks you pay to be decisive and have foresight.
