  1. I 100% agree with this. Not sure anyone thinking rationally would disagree. Ok, you don't want to pay him, get something for him! Plan ahead! See it coming and prepare properly! But that's also why I think it was more arrogance than calculation. He was so sure he could "make" Kirk sign, he never gave any other reality and consideration until it was too late.
  2. I agree he is self centered and only out to save himself. The stupid press release was proof of that. I just think he is more arrogant than calculating. 6 of one, half dozen of the other in the end probably.

    Evaluating Jay Gruden in 2018

    You are kidding right? Have you seen that offense the Vikings have put on the field? There is a reason he was just fired. Why borrow another problem? Also, why would he come here with a few games left? No reason to do that. Just let things ride out the year. Then let them all go.
  4. I think you are giving him too much credit. I think he was just that arrogant to think that he could just give him what he wanted to give him and Kirk would jump at it.
  5. I said they were better off with him. Again nothing more nothing less. That is a fact. You want to talk about that he is not a good QB. That is trashing him. I love how people like you who never liked Kirk as the QB do all kinds of mental gymnastics trying to explain how you don't dislike him and you are not trashing him. Just own it. Moving on. No sense in continuing with this. The broken bone statement is still irrelevant. Of course there are no guarantees. That's why it's an irrelevant statement. Again the fact is they were better on offense with him - and there are 3 yrs of data. Nothing else was stated. Finally, a solid argument. Both can be true. I believe they would have been better with him. But if you want to move on, you absolutely should get something for him. That's a fair statement - one I have made repeatedly ever since the trade. The fact that they got nothing for him is a disaster. I have made this argument time and again. But that does not mean the Redskins would not have been better off working things out with Kirk. Would they be guaranteed a SB? Of course not. They needed to wrap him up a few years ago and they would have been able to build a better team around him.
  6. It seems you like some others are constantly looking for ways to trash Kirk, to the point that your response has very little to do with the original comment. Let me be specific. I said nothing about any guarantee of success with him being here. The fact is the offense was much better with Kirk, period. That's all I said, nothing more nothing less. The entire "Kirk being Kirk" is just so you can carry your own narrative. We get it, you don't/didn't like Kirk as the Redskins QB. The broken bone comment is completely irrelevant. We could all die tomorrow has the same relevance, meaning zero. As for as him taking another step, please identify where I said that. Where I even implied that. I did not. I said nothing about him getting better. But your proclamation that he has reached his peak is again just another opportunity to continue with your distaste for Kirk as a QB narrative. The last statement about Bruce is at least relevant. I obviously agree since that's exactly what I said - reference him learning for the 10th time etc.... So if you wree agreeing it may have been good to make that clear. If you are disagreeing with something, it is honestly not clear wheat that is. So in summary you barely even addressed the actual post, you mostly wanted to trash Kirk as a QB. Maybe we can try again. I said - and only said - that Bruce and Kirk needed each other more than they both though. In other words that Kirk had it better here than he thought and Bruce continues to learn at our expense that it's hard to find a QB/HC/Offense that work well together, yet he keeps screwing it up.
  7. In the end both the Redskins and Kirk needed each other more than either realized, or at least more than Kirk and Bruce realized. Kirk is a very good QB but not a great one. He benefited from Jay's system and his familiarity with it. Going to MN and learning a new system with new players sounds good but rarely does that work out. Bruce found out for what the 10th time since he became an executive in the NFL that a QB/coach/offense fit are not easy to find. But neither could get out of the way of their egos. Both lost. Bruce more than Kirk - at least Kirk has $84M coming no matter how he plays and 2 more years to get it together. Bruce - if there is any justice in the world - will no longer be with the Redskins at the end of this season.

    Alex Smith Actual Status

    It depends on who the FO is. If Bruce is somehow still here, I completely agree. They will not move on from Alex unless they have to. If it's a new crew and they actually know what they are doing, they will cut bait and look for a franchise guy. I highlighted it in the clean house thread, but I would not look for a long term solution at QB next year. Work on the lines and other parts of the team. Get rid of some top heavy contracts and take the CAP hit and get it over with. Consider next year a throw away year. Then get your QB in 2020. Not saying I would not take a flyer on a late rd guy who I like. But the plan would be for them to ultimately hold a clip board.

    Does Doctson even care?

    I am defending against people trashing all over a guy with exaggerations. And we already established that the penalty was garbage. another player tried to physically harm him and he reacted. Most would have done the same thing. I was being sincere about staying on point as you keep changing my words to fit your narrative. It's clear you wanted to be a smart ass. If that's where you want to go then there is no reason to continue. It just proves you have no real argument here other than you just want to complain about a guy without recognizing areas that he has improved.

    The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    Am I the only one who keeps dropping in even during work hoping that there is big news coming out of Redskins Park? Looking at you @TK Where is that "Press Release" that Bruce has been removed from his position? I have faith you can make it happen - 🙂

    Not "heaping" him praise - pointing out that you and others are not even giving him credit for him doing what he can to get better. You keep changing my words to meet your narrative. Please try to stay on point here. And he has come up with some big catches. But he has not been given very many opportunities. Get a QB that is not chicken **** and I believe you will see some big plays out of him.

    At least you are honest about the bias. It's been less than 2 yrs - out injured the first. During that time he has yet to have a QB give him enough opportunities. Not directed specifically at you: It will be interesting to hear all the whining when he goes somewhere else and becomes a solid #2 or better.

    Does Doctson even care?

    You have done nothing but make up your own narrative in the entire comment. I never said he worked harder than anyone else. I never said he was perfect. I never said he is a game breaking/changing receiver. I also never said he should not have made that play. All totally made up by you. What I did say and stand by, is that all WRs make mistakes and he made one there. I also said he has worked his ass off - notice no comparison to other players. Also that he has shown improvement in all areas - which have been well documented by the coaches and his teammates. He as made some key blocks on some really big plays. He has made steady improvement both in his route running and blocking. Both are clearly evident to anyone with an open mind and actually paying attention. We will never know how good he can be until they get someone that can throw him the ball. In his short time, Colt actually got him involved more than anyone.

    Does Doctson even care?

    Yea, because every player is perfect. But thanks for confirming there is nothing he can do to make some of you happy. Kid works his ass off. Continues to get better after being injured his first full season and not having QBs that match his skill set. But yet he keeps working, gutting it out, including greatly improving his blocking - leading to him making key blocks on several big plays. He even modified his own shoe after an injury so he could keep playing. But instead of acknowledging that, all some of you want to do is nit-pick him and whine about every little thing.

    Does Doctson even care?

    As @ILikeBilly stated, there was good reason for Doctson to do what he did. They talked about it on the radio (including Cooley) that it was a garbage call. The guy looked like he was trying to hurt Doctson. So yea, he may have been the one caught,, but does not mean he wasn't justified. So again, it's a double standard for him. Complain if doesn't show much emotion and then complain when he defends himself and shows some emotion, and you didn't even know why he did what he did. Just assumed he was wrong because of the outcome.
