  1. I think a lot of guys who feel like they have a shot of going to the NFL will generally transfer. Russell Wilson transferred from NC State to Wisconsin in order to keep starting.
  2. I dont mind the pick at all. No problem with picking a guy who mightve been a first/second pick a year ago and has game breaking potential. The skins still have 6 more picks today. I say get BPA.
  3. I watched the press conference where Guice and Payne were introduced and the thing that got me the most excited was when Guice said Trent Williams was the first person that called him to express how excited he was to get to block for him. That’s all I need to know. Can’t wait to see Guice out there.
  4. Ok... who’s the one making these draft picks for the Redskins? We got Da’Ron Payne in the 1st used our extra 5th round pick and traded back in the 2nd to recoup our lost 3rd round pick AND still got Derrius Guice? I’m shocked but very pleased.
  5. I love the pick of Payne, I’ve been wanting this guy all along. We will need him and Allen because now, not only do we have to deal with Zeke and Ajayi but that freak of nature Saquon Barkley. I think some wanted the sexier pick in Derwin James, but Payne was the right choice IMO. It’s makes me happy to have this team make the right choice considering how this offseason has gone thus far.
  6. the Skins have been stuck in virtually the same spot for years now, regardless of who has been making the decisions. I’m at the point now where my expectations are low and I have no excitement heading into this upcoming season because I feel like I’ve now been fooled many times in the past. The common denominator is Dan Snyder regardless of who has been coach, GM or president. I’d love to eat crow at some point but I feel as long as Snyder is the owner, we aren’t going anywhere. So, even if we could realistically add some pieces here and there and compete with anyone, I have no faith in Snyder/Allen to make the right moves.

    Redskins receiving corp is beginning to shape up

    I’m with you. I’m more deflated this offseason than any other year regarding the potential of this team. I know it’s early in free agency still, but the way the last couple of years have unfolded with how Bruce Allen has handled Cousins and McCloughan, I find Allen to be utterly incompetent executive. I have no faith that he knows what he’s doing and the only thing he seems to be good at is not overpaying players. I think at this point, even with the draft, 7 wins is optimistic. I’m actually kind of hoping for an implosion to force Snyder to fire Allen and hopefully bring in some real decision makers.
  8. I am by no means advocating for a return to the Vinny Cerrato days of throwing boatloads of cash at the first players that say yes and yes I know it’s just the first couple days but man... we are just sitting here watching our players walk left and right, playing chicken with our LBs and only signing of consequence is Paul Richardson. This is just headed towards us signing a bunch of one year deals once again once the feeding frenzy is over.

    Alex Smith Trade Thread (Details Inside)

    I don’t hate Alex Smith. I like him, he’s a good QB. My problem is strictly based on my feelings about how this FO operates. We shouldn’t have had to trade valuable assets to begin with if this FO was capable of properly evaluating talent and forward thinking.

    Alex Smith Trade Thread (Details Inside)

    The thing is that it’s relevant to 2018 and beyond. The fact that the FO passed on the LTD in 2015 offered by Cousins camp put us in this situation to begin with and shows that the people in the FO are reactionary and are not capable of forward thinking. This is why we always have many holes to fill year after year. Trading away young talented players and draft picks are a surefire way to stay mediocre.

    Alex Smith Trade Thread (Details Inside)

    Basically my contention as well. I know we don’t know all the details of the contract or if Cousins would have signed the same deal here that he gets with his new team, but I do know the savings can’t be but so much if we have to fill the hole Fuller left unless we truly believe Moreau or Dunbar can do it. In the end, I would have preferred to keep Fuller and the draft pick and see if we could land one of the flier options on the FA market

    Thats the problem with a lot of our fan base. My bro for instance, thinks it’s reslistic for us to win 10-11 games and says well now that we have Smith, and have saved money and ended the Cousins drama we can get this, this and this, and can totally win 10-11 games. And I’m like, have you not seen how this FO operates over the past 20 years?

    Alex Smith Trade Thread (Details Inside)

    Yeah... it wasn’t a bad deal considering the circumstances and knowing the likelihood Cousins was coming back was slim. But, I’m also looking at the deal in totality. This wouldn’t have been necessary if the FO didn’t screw up to begin with. It has been reported that After the 2015 season, Cousins did counted the Redskins original lowball offer for 4yrs worth $19 mil a year. Had the Skins accepted that deal to begin with, we wouldn’t have had to resort to trading valuable assets for Smith and maybe we would have been able to keep Garçon or Jackson too. To me, this is like BP causing a huge oil spill and doing a good job of cleaning it up. This trade doesn’t excite me, it frustrates me how poorly this FO handles its business and the fact that they just never learn from past mistakes.

    Well sure it’s $11 million savings for one year but next year his cap number jumps to $23.5 which would be somewhere between $5-$8 million in savings. Fuller still had 2 years left on his rookie deal, so we lost a cheap young talented player whose role was likely to be elevated seeing that the Skins initial plan was to let Breeland hit the market. Now the Skins will have to either try to resign Breeland, sign someone else on the FA market, draft someone to replace Fuller or hope that Moreau/Dunbar can fill that role. Plus, IMO, for Alex Smith to succeed and for us to even be able to hope we make the playoffs, we NEED a legit running back and at least one reliable playmaker at WR. So the way I look at it, on it’s face, we saved money if we are just comparing Alex Smiths deal to what Cousins would get but did we really save anything by creating a hole at CB (and I researched CB salaries, CBs the caliber of Breeland and Fuller will make around $7 million a year min) and getting a QB that is even more reliant on the talent around him than Cousins was?
  15. haha... well we are 5-6 maybe we should pull a 2005 and go white on white for the rest of the season. and another similarity between this season and 2005 is that of the 5 wins and the 6 loses... we had 2 wins within the division. cowboys on the road and eagles at home and a lose to the giants on the road.
