    Alex Smith Trade Thread (Details Inside)

    1. Yeah because we've traded up anytime recently. And haven't actually gotten rid of every locker room problem/distraction. The latest being cousins himself. 2. Alex Smith is actually the only player recently we've given up picks or assets for. Unfortunately it was the cost of getting stability at QB but giving up draft picks and trading up in the draft is far from our M.O. lately. Quite the opposite actually. 3. Will be replaced with a compensatory 3rd rounder and don't get the joke on bama defenders. Short memory because we took two great ones in the most recent draft you can remember (last year's) maybe? 4. Unlikely, we already showed up blocking TE with the excellent selection of Jeremy sprinkle. 5-7ths are crapshoots to begin with but have actually done better than most in those rounds as of late as well. These Redskins stereotypes are stale and old and people need to think for themselves instead of going with the herd on team opinion. News flash, the media is always gonna bag on the skins. The majority of the aging fanbase who witnessed the SB era teams are cynical as well.

    Saving much compared to what? You knew what Kirk was going to sign for? And know how the contract is structured? Could easily be backloaded with an out after two years easily allowing for plenty of moves to be made for the upcoming season.

    Stability at QB is worth way more than most are giving credit for. And it's a joke if you would have rather had Bridgewater or Bradford than Alex Smith LOL. For example. Make this trade take place last season, replace Fuller with Jamison Crowder. Fanbase loses its mind. Replace Fuller with Crowder in the trade that actually took place?= Solid move for the skins! Jamison wasnt all we thought he was! And how many rookie phenoms at skill positions are one year wonders or get injured and never return to form? The value at QB is way higher than a corner. A position we actually are solid at, have a draft pick in Fabian Moreau who we must like (the same coaching staff that liked Fuller when others didn't, btw), and could easily draft another. Another year of a circus at QB, letting more talent than just one player walk because you let your QB strongarm you into another franchise tag. WE WOULD HAVE LOST MORE OVERALL TALENT IF WE TAGGED KIRK PEOPLE. Jesus

    Oh you can bet your ass every anti front office keyboard warrior would be right back on the bandwagon. This fanbase has a very short memory for anything other than associating losing with the man who owns the franchise. I'd bet my life savings on it.

    Plenty actually. Haynesworth, McNabb, any Vinny cerrato era move actually. I'm just not as cynical as most when it comes to the possibility the current coach and FO has slowly been building a solid young core and weeding out locker room leaks and cancers since taking office.

    This is pure ignorance. Unfortunately in the real world stadiums are built with money, not fanbase approval points.

    Again, this is assuming the Redskins are complete idiots, we don't have one of the most well respected contract negotiators on staff... And we hadn't already ruled out any chance that Kirk would actually sign here.

    Until Kirk hamstrings his next team after signing his mega deal. And Fabian monreau and another draft pick more than replaces what was lost in ONE corner being traded. Y'all are assuming there was any shot in hell Kirk would have ever signed. We would have been forced to let more talent go than just Fuller if we kept playing the franchise tag dance with Bible boy. Don't chastise me homie. The Packers let Casey Hayward with no compensation. Also look at how many rooks or 2nd year players were top corners this year. They can be replaced and we may have already drafted one in moreau. Unless you still believe our talent evaluation is Vinny cerrato esque.

    Please explain to me how we replace a QB with one of the exact same caliber while subsequently ending the drama that surrounded the previous one... And lose one other player (as if he is the only talented young one we have) equals 4-12 next year? Especially if said QB gives us 2 or 3 years to draft and groom his replacement?

    Yeah the pitchforks when GMSM was fired worked great. Or the countless online petitions or calls for other fans to stop going to games. Give me a break. Personally I live In reality and laugh at people that picket for the release of Obama's birth certificate or the impeachment of Trump. The XFL is returning for anyone that isn't bluffing for the millionth time when they say "I'm done with the Redskins"

    Because it's certainly not possible that in the age of social media it wasn't humanly possible to notify the player quick enough? Anything to fuel the fires of the same old Redskins Circus angle I suppose.

    No other hits lately huh? Allen, Chris Thompson, Kerrigan, Montae Nicholson, Trent Williams, Brandon Scherff (insert "but yeah but 1st round pick for a guard" reactions), Matt Ioannidis, Morgan Moses... Don't even know if the dude is definitely the traded player or not, but honestly it's harder to find a safety (Nicholson) in the draft than it is a corner. And we don't even know what we have in Fabian Moreau yet. How is this any different than when the Packers let Casey Hayward WALK even if Fuller is the player? Not strapping ourselves to Kirk gives us the ability to sign and replace players we wouldn't have had the resources for otherwise. Breeland is now an option to bring back. So long as we don't fire Gruden, I'm willing to wait this one out and see where the chips fall. I don't have any team that signs Cousins to what he's asking for being able to build a roster around that salary. For all we know he goes to Cleveland for career suicide and the Redskins look a lot more well-thought on than any of you are giving credit for.

    More unlikely than a super bowl win is having our fan base not have a knee jerk reaction to any and all moves made by the team that equal = " Oh my God (insert current GMs name) is terrible/our GM is just another Snyder puppet/blow everything up fire everybody & trade anything worth value for draft picks/we're doomed/I give up on this team" Everyone take a damn breath. 1. You can't moan about us not re-signing Kirk because he wants too much money, then also get sticker shock for us paying current market value for another. And we didn't trade for Johnny Manziel, give up a 1st/2nd rounder, and the equivalent of a Champ Bailey. 2. We don't know the structure of the contract yet and if Bruce has done anything right it has been his conviction on not inking any deals that strap the rest of the roster. We very well could be able to exit the contract after two years... We all should know by now big numbers mean nothing really with NFL contracts. 3. Alex smith is in exactly the same tier as Kirk. You literally can't argue that. He's older, sure. But it was a 3rd rounder and an UNKNOWN player for a 3 time pro bowl QB, and immediately put the QB drama to bed. After the initial shock, everyone will settle down and the locker room will probably be better off not having to deal with the constant Kirk Cousins debacle. While everyone else sees it as same old Redskins... I see what looks like Snyder finally giving us stability at the HC position for the first time ever and not being knee jerk like the fanbase is and firing him after a down year riddled by injuries. In the past couple years I've seen us build a young core of homegrown draft picks and acquisition of free agents that have local ties while not over paying them. The outlier to the rock solid locker room Jay Gruden has done one hell of a job in building was Kirk Cousins. At face value without knowing the exact details of the trade, it honestly seems like a move in the best interest of the TEAM. You cant build a winner paying the amount Kirk was holding us hostage for. Aaron Rodgers should have more rings than he does. So should Drew Brees. Just look at the playoffs this year. Complete teams put you in contention more often than not. Especially those of which have great defenses.

    Exactly what I said would happen when I saw the news break. No shot we get blessed by the football gods to play a weakened Dalass team. History would suggest he gets it dropped to a 4 or 5 game just in time to take out his aggression towards the league out on the Redskins nose-less defensive line.

    Does the Twitter thread always crash yalls mobile browsers? It happens regularly with me and it makes the thread unreadable. It sucks because I'm not on my desktop often and its one of the best sources to stay up on the latest Skins news.
  16. Im always torn on this issue. Part of me wants an updated alternate for the Redskins but I also would like to avoid the league becoming anything like college with a million different uniforms for each team. I love the deep-rooted tradition of the marquee NFL franchises like the Redskins and the uniforms that are a part of that tradition. All too often the "new and improved" of some teams uniforms end up looking dated sooner rater than later (see: Buccaneers, Jaguars). But sometimes an update can be done in good taste while keeping the overall classic theme like the recent Lions update. Its a fine line. I'd welcome a better throwback with open arms though. The feather down the middle of the helmet replacing the stripe would seemingly work with the dumb NFL helmet rule.

    Hope that Steven Daniels wasn't cut simply for being one of the players that Scot stood on the table for on draft day. Kid had great ratings from PFF in college. If he goes off for the Eagles im going to be furious, especially since we didn't get to see him play a single down for us before cutting him.
  18. But when all the other teams had to follow the stupid rule, their throwbacks matched the helmets or they discontinued wearing them. We should have switched to a different throwback or adjusted the uniforms color accordingly to match the helmets. The rule is a joke in the first place. Does the NFL think colleges value the players health less than the league does? Schools like Oregon and Maryland seemingly have a different alternate uniform and helmet every week. And even pro players are allowed to switch to a different helmet brand if they find a new design to be more comfortable all the time. If there was solid evidence to support this helmet rule I'm sure the NCAA wouldn't openly ignore it. Its a PR move in attempt to make the NFL look like they are doing everything they possibly can to fight concussions, even if the reasoning is completely fabricated.
  19. Every team in the NFL but us seemingly gets love from Nike with alternates (multiple in some cases) or at least throwbacks with a different logo. Even another traditional franchise in the Raiders received a very tasteful modern uniform update this past year for them to use in rotation. I really liked what Nike did for the Raiders actually. It can be done. Meanwhile, we have the option of different pants and a half-assed throwback with a clearly mismatched helmet that doesnt even get its own matching logo. Oh I forgot, we remove the stripe and change the facemasks to gray... woohoo. Ideally I'd like to see a tasteful, slightly modernized alternate (new take on spear or curly R logos to go with any jersey changes: my idea is the "drenched" burgundy on burgundy jersey Nike did for RG3 and Alf on black pants with a spear as the leg stripe), and a proper throwback with a helmet that doesn't clash and it's own respective logo. Just don't try anything like our color rush uniforms ever again. Or anything like the abortions that are the Jags and Bucs unis (Am I the only one that feels that they are not only ugly but already look dated even though they were recently done?)
  20. Probably just the subtle change needed to make the throwbacks not clash with the current helmet color due to stupid NFL helmet rule. Thats my guess at least.

    Media are trying so badly to hold on to the "Snyder still running the circus in Washington" narrative its almost comical. The whole non-story about Allen not letting Scot talk to the media could have just as easily been Allen not letting the media talk to Scot.
