  1. Wish folk would stop acting cowardly toward primetime games. The Redskins can never be great again without handling primetime.
  2. Approaching this situation from purely logical standpoint: -in any negotiation, the bargaining point for either party is leveraging their "best alternative to the proposed agreement." Kirk's BAPA is to it free agency where at this time multiple teams will compete to pay him a lot of money. The Redskins BAPA is to tag Kirk again for another year at 28M, which is also a pretty good deal for him. -This situation gives Kirk all of the leverage and the Redskins none. This is a terrible negotiating position. If he doesn't want to be there, even if he just doesn't care one way or the other, then there is no incentive for him to come to the table. So, what is the best way for the Redskins to improve this dismal negotiating situation? How can they create a bargaining position for themselves? I think the only solution is to take the best QB available in the first round of the draft when the pick comes up. This will instantly devalue Kirk. A new quarterback will be learning under him this year. This gives the Redskins a BAPA that doesn't involve Kirk. Other teams will know this and they also will be able to adjust their bidding accordingly if and when he hits free agency. The 28M tag idea goes away completely. His value levels out around 20M/year. This is what they need to do to create a light at the end of this dismal tunnel of one way leverage that they are stuck in.
