  1. Question for the start-kyle-allen crowd: If Allen starts next week and plays decent through the end of the season (say we end up 7-9), what happens next? Allen is on a one-year contract. Do you try to re-sign him and forego drafting a quarterback with the first pick? He'll probably want enough money to guarantee that he'll be the unquestioned starter at least for 2021. If he sucks this year, what good did it do to start him? If he's in-between, the end result is a worse draft position and not much else. Sometimes you need to accept that you are in a bad situation and make the
  2. Not disagreeing, but can you name someone on offense other than McL that gets the benefit of the doubt if he doesn't improve?
  3. I wonder how many football fans outside of DC could name even three offensive starters on the WFT. In retrospect, I'm starting to believe that we should have traded the Chase Young pick to a fringe contender and built up the offense. The offense has only one healthy player that would start on most other NFL teams. That's pretty pathetic.
  4. Don't worry about things you can't change. Haskins is a cheap starter and his salary is guaranteed through his fourth year. I don't see how his starting hurts the team. We have the worst offensive starters in the NFL. Right now, changing QBs would be like rebuilding the engine in a Pontiac Aztek. Drive it until it stops running and save up for a new car in the meantime; i.e., fix the ****ing OL.
  5. No disrespect to AP, but at some point you need to look at each player individually and ask whether or not he gets the team closer to Super Bowl contention. AP get the team closer to 4 wins. He'll be sporting a yellow jacket before the next playoff win.
  6. From Dallas's standpoint Vs Washington - Last 5 years: 8-2 Last 10 years: 14-6 Vs Giants - Last 5 years: 7-3 Last 10 years: 13-7 Vs Philly - Last 5 years: 6-4 Last 10 years: 11-9 I live in Dallas. Everyone knows that there is a historical "rivalry" with the Skins, but in terms of Dallas fans thinking "anything could happen because this is a rivalry game" or "the Skins are a thorn in our side", those days are long gone. Washington has won both games in a season twice this century. The last time Washington won three games in a row was in the 87-88 seasons (they
  7. Trent wants an extension at the top of the market for OTs. That takes away the financial gain in having a rookie starter. They already have a veteran, who already knows their playbook, with no more guaranteed money left on his contract. Or they could pick up Jason Peters who played for 3.5M last year. Plus, Zimmer isn't the type that puts up with drama for very long. That's why Diggs will be enjoying playing in Buffalo. That bridge has been blown up.
  8. So if another team offered a player-for-player trade for TW, with the Skins receiving Logan Ryan and Jason Peters on one-year deals, and threw in a 5th and 7th in this years draft, would you take it or not? Because that's what we're talking about. Get what you can get and use TWs $13M salary to acquire free agents.
  9. I bet Kyle Shanahan is savoring the idea of getting Trent for a 5th and a 7th. At this point, the Skins just need to end the pain. There's no way that RR lets TW in the locker room. Keeping TW to "punish" him is ridiculous. It will cost the Skins almost $13M to punish him, plus a lot of goodwill with the team. What do the Skins get in return that is worth $13M? Seriously - would you rather have a disgruntled TW or Jason Peters and Logan Ryan on one year deals?
  10. I think you're in the wrong thread. This is the "Trent Williams screwed up our big draft pick haul" thread. Come back in a week or two and it will be the "wait until someone gets hurt in training camp and then we'll trade TW for two firsts" thread.
  11. I'm not sure where you got the idea that Dallas's secondary is terrible. It's not. The lowest they've been ranked in the last three years (y/g) is 13th. I doubt Diggs will be a game 1 starter or even a first half of the season starter. Chido, Lewis and Brown are solid, Woods is better than solid, and Clinton-Dix is a new addition. Their weak point, however, is turnovers.
  12. We looking at rational thought in the rear view mirror at this point.
  13. I wouldn't be surprised if we opened with Dallas this year. Two division rivals with new high profile coaches. Would be great.
  14. Or Minny could use their extra picks move up from their position in the second and get Josh Jones. Or Cleveland. And pay under a million for their LT. They're not stupid.
