    Norman released

    Thank God the Josh Norman era is over. Dude played like a scrub for last few years and every time he was interviewed it made me cringe. Good riddance.
  2. Agree with the sentiments above - it probably was the right time, dude had a good career and I enjoyed seeing him as a Redskin. He comes across as a decent guy and hopefully he'll get to enjoy his retirement. Can easily see him picking up media spots in the future if he wants to.

    2020 Comprehensive Draft Thread

    Feel a little hard done by, getting a B+ for a draft that netted Chase Young, Okudah plus the rest of them, whilst giving up zero future resources!!!

    Serious Question: Do you regret letting Cousins go?

    There is always the argument made that Brady's wife earns more than him blah blah blah. Bottom line is Kirk is set for life, his family are set for life. His great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great granchildren are set for life. The same would be true if he had signed for 20mill per season and given the team a shot... Maybe it's a cultural thing but I just don't understand the obsession with stacking money for the sake of stacking money.... He is paid to be elite, but he's not elite. That's the big problem and the fact he isn't elite makes his contract an albatross that significantly harms his team's ability to go all the way.... Bottom line is Kirk COULD win a superbowl, but he never will. He needs a team that is totally stacked to win but he won't sign a contract that helps a team get stacked.
  5. Doug got a new title too. Senior Vice President of Player Development now.
  6. Interesting how different this is, compared to the announcement of Bruce leaving. Totally different tone. Bruce and Dan gone from best putt putt buds to colder than Vanilla Ice.
  7. He's not exactly mincing his words!! Loved Carriker as a player, he was never all that talented but dude played hard every week and left it all on the field. Clearly there is an issue that extends beyond whatever the parameters of the TW situation are though.

    Alex Smith's future with the team....

    If he can pass a physical by September 1st, there's a slim chance Nagy will trade for him. Rumour mill is Chicago want either Smith or Dalton to bail them out of the Trubisky show. Smith put up his best career numbers under Nagy so there'd likely be mutual interest. Maybe Smith can do a trade and restructure to allow the Bears to fit him into the cap if he is serious about playing again and thinks Nagy will start him. I'd be happy to trade for something nominal (swapping 7th rounders or similar) to get that contract off the books. I'd be sad to lose him from the locker room as he's a great guy to have in there, but ultimately knowing that contract was off the books would let us future plan and maybe bring someone in on a frontloaded deal who could fill the leadership void and be a more impactful position/player than a $16 million backup QB. Obviously it's a moon shot but maybe we'll get lucky.
  9. Yeah I noticed that. I commented on the Press release that there were no generic platitudes thanking Bruce for his efforts or wishing him all the best in the future etc. Between the video of the departure at Dallas, the press release and Snyder's speech yesterday it is pretty clear that they won't be playing putt putt anytime soon.
  10. Spot on. For those that would prefer it boxed off nicely with just one franchise he finished up 36 and 44 at Cleveland (his first HC gig)

    OC - Scott Turner incoming

    When has he said that? I heard him say we have a couple of veterans in the building already (Colt/Case/Alex) but nothing about bringing one in...

    OC - Scott Turner incoming

    Yeah I'm not really feeling the Commandant title (however I do really like the Oceanic Three)

    Cuts to get 100 million in Cap Space???

    They have Nagy up there who Smith played for and put up his career best numbers. If we can get them to eat some of the cap then that's a fantastic deal and you start to feel that just maybe stuff is starting to fall our way after all these years of injury curses etc

    OC - Scott Turner incoming

    Snyder clearly has someone else in mind will be the response I suspect you'll get. Make the facts fit the narrative, not the other way round.

    OC - Scott Turner incoming

    Haha sorry - think that's the first time I changed it, mainly because it doesn't sound like KOC will be sticking.
