  1. For all of the "Haskins beat out Burrow" folks...Kyle Allen beat out Kyler Murray at Texas A&M.
  2. This is the thing that worries me the most with regards to Haskins. I don't think he'll be a total bust, but if his floor is somewhere around where Winston is, I could see the team (aka Snyder) hanging on to him just hoping he eventually "gets it" when he actually never does.
  3. Winston, Mariota, Chase Daniel, Matt Moore, or Case Keenum are the realistic (and financially viable) options to bring in and "compete" for the starting jobs. Which leaves little to be desired.
  4. Wait...I thought that once Bruce Allen was gone the culture was going to change and the leaks were going to stop?
  5. It makes perfect sense for them to jettison him...if Rivera doesn't believe in him, he should have every right to draft his QB. We could be passing on a generational QB talent.
  6. Gottlieb is based out of LA, correct? Who's currently coaching in the LA area?
  7. RG3 led the team to a division and the majority of the fan base was okay with moving on from him just 2 years later. Haskins has played 6 good quarters of football and hasn't won anything, but the majority of fans (at least the ones on the internet) are petrified of the thought of drafting another quarterback. It really makes no sense to me.
  8. Dyslexia is new, but Czaban alluded to it on his show last year:
  9. The Gottlieb thing isn't even new. Czaban brought this up during last season.
  10. Anyone who has an issue with this is not a fan of the Redskins, but a fan of Haskins. This is how it should be with a new coach with the power (it appears) Rivera has.
  11. The way some fans get so defensive over the mildest of criticisms (like in the Keim tweets above) is baffling to me. RG3 didn't get this much love after the 2012 season and he led us to a division title.
  12. And yet...Kirk's was only guaranteed for injury. Smith's was guaranteed for injury or if he was still on the active roster in March. Bruce Allen never mentioned this in his statement about the negotiations with Cousins. At the time, Stafford was guaranteed $60.5 million. Bruce Allen's statement said that Cousins was going to be the "2nd highest paid QB in terms of guaranteed money", meaning the $54 million was accurate. But what is ironic is that Cousins made $44 million in guaranteed money in 2016 and 2017. Alex Smith made $40 million fully guaranteed in 2018. The same amount that the Vikings wound up paying Cousins for 3 years.
  13. Smith had 1 year left on his contract. We traded Fuller for him and then extended him. It's no different than re-signing him at the end of 2018 when he was a free agent. If you want to get nit-picky over semantics, that's fine. If Smith didn't get injured, the Skins were traveling to face the 5-5 Cowboys in week 12 for the division lead. And week 13 would have been against the Eagles (who were hovering around .500 as well and in the hunt for the division). It was not a fact that we were the favorite to win the division. I don't "feel" a certain way to say that after trading for a player and then preemptively extending him was like a free agent signing. It's a fact that we were 1 game above .500 before Smith got hurt (because the facts are that we were well on our way to losing that game had he not got injured). Everything else is pure speculation as to what would have happened if Smith stayed healthy. It's a fact that we were averaging 17 points after the buy week with Smith as our quarterback (18 points if you included the entire season). It's a fact that after his injury, the offense averaged 16 points per game.
  14. Is Kevin O'Connell really going to be that much of a loss if we hire someone else?
  15. Extending him after trading for him made him essentially a free agent signing. Revisionist history is pointing out his record here as if it was some sort of indication of being on the cusp of a playoff run. I "rag on him" because he's not as good as many fans make him out to be. And I know that there is a very real possibility that if he's healthy going into next year that he will be the starter. And I would loathe that.
  16. 1) Was reported by Bruce Allen himself. $53 million guaranteed. Alex Smith, assuming he never got injured, was due $71 million (fully guaranteed) if he made it to the 5th day of the 2019 league year (which...the Redskins were not going to cut him after 1 season). 2) Is because Smith is quite possibly the worst free agent signing (for a quarterback) in the last decade. 3) is correct. Bruce Allen should have been fired the instant he extended Alex Smith. 4) I don't think Cousins wanted to stay here after the end of the 2016 season. 5) I don't blame Alex Smith.
  17. Cousins was gone. And he was never offered what they ultimately doled out to Smith. It was roll with McCoy and a FA or trade and extend a perennial 'meh' QB with a ton of guaranteed money. This has nothing to do with Cousins and everything to do with the horrible trade and extension. I wanted them to go with McCoy in 2018.
  18. Yes, no one is debating that. The point is that we were "6-3" in 2008 with Campbell and Zorn and how did that turn out? Pointing to a winning record halfway through the year without proper context in the direction the team was going (does anyone remember how putrid our offense looked against Houston before Colt came in?) is misleading. Yes, we probably would have won 2 more games if Smith didn't get injured. But would you rather have gone 5-11 or 6-10 rolling with McCoy and a cheaper FA or have a healthy and expensive Alex Smith lead you to 8-8 (at best) every year?
  19. Because he's still on the team, and some see him as a viable option to start next year if healthy. Which I do not want, and hope we can somehow fleece the Bears into trading for him.
  20. Do you seriously want me to go through Twitter and find the people who claimed he was better than Kirk? Or Facebook posts? "The majority of fans" does not mean this message board. But this thread would be a good refresher. I'm not making this up out of the blue: Also: I am glad we have Haskins now moving forward, but I still root for and want Cousins to succeed to have even more egg all over the fired face of Bruce Allen.
  21. He's such a good dude and he had a great career. Definitely could see him becoming a coach if he wanted to go down that path.
  22. How about the former head coach of the team? https://sports.yahoo.com/jay-gruden-feels-redskins-definitely-improved-qb-alex-smith-kirk-cousins-131757646.html Josh Norman? https://bleacherreport.com/articles/2818649-josh-norman-redskins-would-have-won-super-bowl-with-alex-smith Bucky Brooks? https://www.hogshaven.com/2018/4/1/17183284/bucky-brooks-agrees-with-jay-gruden-that-alex-smith-is-an-upgrade-at-qb-kirk-cousins-nfl I mean I can keep going...and if you honestly don't remember the myriad of "we were 6-3" posts from fans during 2018, you are in some serious denial.
