  1. Who gives a flying **** what Sean Taylor would say? If Bruce Allen remains here, we will remain a **** team. If you enjoy that, then enjoy your fantasy. I said nothing about "drafting slot," because, again, the drafting slot means **** if Bruce and Dan are making the picks. Get rid of Bruce, and we have a sliver of a hope that maybe the new GM would stand his ground on personnel selection with Snyder. Otherwise, we will have the same **** we have had for decades.
  2. No, because if we win and that gives Bruce ammo to stay, then all you got in your hand is a pile of bird ****.

    The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    Great! We'll have our QB's coached on how to always throw the check down or out of bounds. We won't have any come from behind victories, very little scoring, and average 190 yards a game; but, hey, we won't have many turn overs!

    Serious Question: Do you regret letting Cousins go?

    I may have mistaken the point you were trying to make. I read your earlier post as you saying the Vikings were in a bad position because of Kirk's guaranteed contract for three years, and I was pointing out that the Redskins are no better off with Alex's contract, even though it wasn't fully guaranteed (though, I think we are in a much worse position with the contract we gave Alex, even if he was healthy). If Kirk got hurt this weekend and couldn't play another down for the Vikes for the remainder of his contract, the Vikes wouldn't be worse off than the Redskins, so we do agree there. It is a helluva risk to offer any big contract in the NFL, and I get why teams and fans are wary of offering up big contracts with a lot of, never mind full guarantees. But, that's why it is so important to do a full assessment of the player and the risk beforehand. And, with the contract the Redskins gave to Alex, and older and inferior QB, compared to what they could have given Cousins to stay (before Bruce totally screwed the pooch to the point that Cousins was not returning with him still in the FO), it is obvious that they didn't assess anything other than their own egos and how to stroke them. (I'm not saying that you are/were on board with their lunacy, just making my position clear).

    Guess what; Kirk's contract is only a three year deal. The Vikings can be 100% free of paying him, if they want, at the same time the Redskins can get out from under the Alex Smith deal. So, in reality, it doesn't matter that Cousins' contract was fully guaranteed while Smith's wasn't. Both teams are on the hook for the same amount of time, with very little difference in pay, in football terms. But, one team has a QB that is actually playing for them and winning games and has them in the thick of a playoff berth, while also being in MVP conversations; the other team has the exact opposite. You really need to get over your superiority complex telling everyone on this board what they need to do and what they shouldn't discuss. If you have a problem with the topic and discussion, stay out of the thread.

    Serious Question: Do you regret letting Cousins go?

    It is funny how blinded you are by your hatred of Cousins. His last year here, the team was more decimated by injuries than it ever has been since the "Body Bag" game. We were literally playing people that we pulled in off the street, and most of the talent level that was left on the field that had been in the locker room from week 1 wasn't worth bragging about at all. We still got to 7-9. No running game to speak of. Porous O-line. Rickety defense. Cousins raised the level of the players around him to help get to that record. If you want to say that Cousins didn't raise the level of the players around him, then that would mean he did it all on his own, which would make him damn near elite. So, either way, we screwed the pooch. And, you can't have it both ways. Either he was a great QB held back by a crap organization and roster, or he was a good QB that raised the level of play of second, third, and even fourth string players. Trent Williams talked about Cousins leading the team and getting more out of the offense back then as well. And, even before 2017, it was reported how much the o-line preferred to have Cousins behind center than RGIII back in the day. Do you think that was because they preferred Kirk's cologne? No, it was because he helped them and the offense succeed. Look at the players that have been here not only during the Cousins' years, but with other QB's as well. Look at how much better they performed with Cousins under center. That isn't an opinion; that's a fact. And , the FO wasn't "forced" to sign Alex Smith. You're right that they (Bruce Allen mostly) put themselves in an absurd position because of how they handled the situation, but the Alex Smith trade and contract extension wasn't closed to forced on them. They had other options, including drafting a QB and/or getting a FA QB that wouldn't have required a trade (of course, this is when you'll come in and say that good QB's don't hit free agency, and my response is "DING, DING, DING" - that's part of what makes the whole Cousins saga so absurd; HE should have never been a FA to begin with, and by the fact that players like him don't hit FA, the price/demand was going to be high). They had no foresight or plan, which is typical of this organization, but again, they had options but chose to go the most expensive route. Very ironic considering we're talking about Cousins' contract, hmm? A contract that was inflated by the actions of Bruce Allen, nonetheless. One opinion I will give, that I feel is pretty close to fact, is that if Bruce Allen wasn't here, Kirk Cousins would have had no problem signing here, and it would have been a favorable contract for both parties.

    Kirk Cousins took a floundering, 1 - 3 win team and got them to 7 - 8 wins because he did make the players around him better. And, he didn't get a 90+ million dollar contract.

    He led a comeback victory there with an awful Redskins unit just a few years ago (it' s so strange how many people overlook or forget that game all together /sarcasm), so he is definitely capable of winning that game. I think the bigger question is how with the Minny defense do.

    Is this the worst Redskins team in the last 20 years?

    Spurrier's team also beat a Peyton Manning led Colts team in prime time, nonetheless.

    So sad, but so true.

    Anyone who is still not convinced that this is the worst Redskins team in possibly the franchise's history, never mind the past 20 ears, deserves to have their fan card revoked, because they don't know **** about this team or football. This team is an abomination; embarrassment incarnate, and the fact that Bruce Allen still has a job within this organization only proves how out of touch and pathetic Daniel Snyder is as an owner.
  12. Any post that quotes The Smiths is an excellent post in my book!

    It can get worse by having a team that goes decades without a chance at a division title and/or playoff berth. As bad as it has been the last 20+ years for the redskins, every few years we have that mirage season that gives some fans a glimmer of hope and a reason to watch in December. I don't fall for that **** anymore, and, until we have a consistently contending team, i can't get myself hyped about this team, but there are millions of fans that will and they will show up, tune in and buy merch. We go 10+ years without even a mirage season, yeah, it will be worse. Much worse. It can also get worse by losing the team and/or its name. I know some don't seem to care, which blows my mind, but I am a fan of the Washington Redskins, the team/franchise that my father rooted for, that his father and mother and brother rooted for, etc. I am not going to be a fan of the London Redskins, or the San Diego Redskins, or the Washington Senators or Washington Crepes. Those teams will not be and could never be the team that my family and I rooted for and planned our Sundays around for generations. So, yes, things could be worse, as hard as it is to imagine. At this point, I don't think it is even remotely possible that Snyder would sell the team unless he was forced to by the league, but he hasn't broken any major laws nor committed any major social faux pas to give validity to the other owners forcing him out. The only realistic hope is that Snyder FINALLY has seen enough, gets rid of Bruce, hires a real GM and gives him full power over everything football related.

    That's the point. There are a lot of those guys out there, so saying and wishing for anyone but Snyder to own the team is only asking for more misery as a fan. Change for change sake will only lead to disaster.
