    Extending Season to 18 games

    I just saw that the Players Association said the expansion to 18 games would be bad for players. I started to think about that and came up with some reasons as to why the Players Union should embrace that IF: 1) Rosters are expanded from 53 players to X number (63?) 2) Limits on quarters a player can play (say 16 games). That would allow some playing time fro 2nd tier and coaches to prove themselves 3) Keep players from playing hurt with #1 being said Seems the union has some leverage to get concessions and expand it's membership What am I missing?? Allot more money and 2 less preseason games to risk injury I'd support it if I was a player if they get something in return beside game checks

    Press Release: #REDSKINS MAKE ROSTER MOVES

    Richardson never materialized for the $$. That was a bust. Was that a Bruce or Jay FU

    2020 Comprehensive Draft Thread

    Can Reed be moved to WR and be productive against CB's vs getting beat to hell by LB's. He has the speed and size it "seems to me" to complement that group. Anybody give some reasons he wouldn't be VERY productive outside?? I know the $$ /cap hit will be a issue...but just the capability of Reed is what I'm interested in...
  4. Hopefully this FO isn't so frugal that they "forget" insurance plans to keep this from happening again. Insurance has nothing to do with the CAP so WHY scrimp on that?????

    Is Dominance Predicated on the EDGE?

    Is it position or player that defines dominance. I think a player that excels in moving around the line and into coverage with athleticism is more important that positional excellence. Guys like LT, Reggie White to today's Ray Lewis, Von Miller, Bosa. You get solid performances from team players and have an ACE that moves and creates mismatches along the line and disrupts traditional blocking concepts. That s why I like Chase Young regardless of trade up offers. With the talent we have now and some coverage/safety additions The D should give the offense short field position and turnover positive count. A disrupter seems to be they key. I'm no expert by any means, just observing.

    Serious Question: Do you regret letting Cousins go?

    We weren't a Superbowl Contender EVER in the last decade. Vikes WERE a serious contender 2017 that had a serviceable QB at low cost. They could gave brought in a GOOD vet as insurance and kept the band together and added in 2018. They went all in for 2018 when they kept the 2017 team pretty much intact and gambled on Cousins. It was a one shot deal given the CAP. Strategically, it was pretty stupid... Beat me to it..

    Like I said CAP HELL. The Vikes screwed the pooch on KC. It will go down as one of the stupidest moves ever at that price.

    We’re sitting pretty here guys.

    Sweat had the tools to be a #1 prospect and fell to us. Again, did we use him right or try to get him to drop into cover at the NFL level right off. Yes, he didn't contain sometimes but you can't ignore his 4.4 speed. Learn technique and no RB will beat him to the sideline. He reminds me of Manley...I'm OK with using that 2nd then vs now. Even with Position # difference. Sweat COULD be a Monster

    So, about Norman. Did the Skins NOT play him to his strengths? Seems he was playing off with a cushion vs at the line jamming receivers using his size like he did with the Panthers. Can he be rahab'd and brought back into form. I would guess he'd have to renegotiate *some* or could he be worth the risk. Did we try to fit him in a scheme that he was not suited for AGAIN??? When he left the Panthers, it wasn't Rivera that rescinded the FT. Wonder if RR and Norman have talked... (ps) It was safety play where he got burnt on the TD's I remember. Communication problems..did he REALLY fall off the cliff or was it Manusky

    Serious Question: Do you regret letting Cousins go?

    Does he have a no trade clause? I wonder...Vikes "could" trade him and some picks to move up and pick a QB in this quality QB draft. Vikes are in CAP hell. Talking 8-8 in the forums. Cousins could have a suitor (ex) Dallas with Dak asking 35Mil - Brady in NE what happens with him. I could see a trade and picks VS another 3 years of Kirk-ness value. That Green Bay game did the same thing The Giant Game did you us but reverse. Gave *some* hope/plausibility that Kirk can win big consistently. (fools gold..eject..eject..eject)

    Serious Question: Do you regret letting Cousins go?

    Boy..I sure got under your skin.. AND to close too... RG3 paid dearly for his transgressions...Out of football...failed at Browns..out of football..backup in Ravens..EARNING diddly squat. I was VERY hard on RG3. *I* think he paid the price. KC is still sucking millions at a CAP and producing NOTHING. Again, Keenam has a better Playoff record. I just don't like grifters. So..lets take it to ATN as Cousins is NOT a Redskin. TG

    Serious Question: Do you regret letting Cousins go?

    RR has a right to pick his QB especially with the Qb's in this year's draft. Haskins may be another "mistake" in the scheme of things but I haven't felt THIS positive about the skins in a long time. I like Del Rio and RR as much as I liked the Shanny/Gibbs 2 hires. I am looking forward to the draft and what plays out

    Serious Question: Do you regret letting Cousins go?

    Not executing the coach's plan repeatedly on his own initiative, complaining about being chosen in the 4th by the Skins, eating up the publicity about driving his grandmas Van when making millions of dollars...YOU LIKE THAT in a game that shouldn't have gotten to that point... yea...I call that a diva. But you are right RG3 was a Diva's Diva. No argument there

    Serious Question: Do you regret letting Cousins go?

    You said KC wasn't a Diva Not who was the bigger Diva. Really? Very binary/one dimensional argument. Both can be true...right?

    Serious Question: Do you regret letting Cousins go?

    Gruden said on numerous occasions KC refused to go down field and open up the passing game (Zimmer said the same thing about downfield passes in his pressser) " the plays where Cousins declined to take open shots downfield in " I think we had some called," said Viking coach Mike Zimmer when ... https://www.cbssports.com/nfl/news/nfl-divisional-playoffs-kirk-cousins-fails-to-lift-vikings-putting-emphasis-on-teams-passing-limitations/ We wasted 2 years *hoping* to get him to negotiate and resign him. It takes 2 to tango. Bruce and KC . Go look at the "hate" in the Bruce thread. You tell me there was negotiation in good faith there...was there ??? He never acted like a diva...You Like THAT?? Fricking chip on his shoulder for being drafted in the 4th by Skins (which means no team wanted him prior to the 4th) These Kirk apologists are so strange to me. You keep opening up these threads on KC bemoaning his exit and I'll keep voicing my opinion as to why the Skins are MUCH better off without him and his CAP impact. Shut this thread down so I won't have to say anymore "over the top" facts about KC. Go look at the Vikings forum and see that they are saying exactly what we've been saying for years.

    Serious Question: Do you regret letting Cousins go?

    Not if you look at it in totality. Is he worth 30mil 16% cap space and elevate the performance of the team to compensate for reduced talent because of his salary. He is also a heart attack waiting to happen for fans...No fun watching him play. The only good thing he did as a Redskins QB was get the FO and Gruden Fired IMHO

    Serious Question: Do you regret letting Cousins go?

    He threw a BAD INT to Sherman for eventual +7. Didn't have to throw there..bad timing..communication..just bad. That was 100% on KC and it let the air out of the balloon for the whole team and they never recovered. You could see that on the sideline. It crushed the team's momentum from 1st half...which is what KC does.

    80% losses on KC. Alex went down a winner. the 20% on backup/rookies. Alex was (still is I hope) a better QB than KC ever was or will be. Can't blame Alex for us being backed into a corner. Like others said..Market Value. And Fuller...well..the verdict is still out there on him.

    *I* never called him elite. He's PAID like an elite. Funny..the Vikes 2 years ago were REAL Contenders..defense was like the 49rs..Zimmer F'd that up big time

    49rs are doubling deep. Kirk doesn't trust throwing in there after Sherman burned him. I know he can't throw down field because of the rush..so ya keep trying??

    Kirk is holding the ball looking down field and not taking the check downs. He is not being patient. Those last 2 sacks he was looking 20-30 yards down field. He should KNOW he doesn't have the time..it's his reads that are killing the offense
