  1. Is it too early to focus on the 19 draft?

    It's asset management. Just like the point I was trying to make about Landon Collins. You can set the market in his price range, but we went into #1 CB territory with the contract. We blew the evaluation. Giving up a first rounder isn't worth what the current cost of Rosen is, especially knowing the Cardinals have essentially committed to someone else and have to trade him. They have zero leverage to ask for a first round pick. None. So why would we offer it. Actually, we have one reason why we would offer that pick to the Cardinals:
  2. Is it too early to focus on the 19 draft?

    Cards also dont have the leverage in this deal. Kingsbury already opened his mouth, and the cats out of the bag so to speak; he ruined their leverage for a deal. A third round pick likely gets the deal done, and I'd be OK moving that to a second if we get into a bidding war.
  3. Where there's smoke there is fire

    The player has to be willing. If he wants to continue playing football and isn't content with the millions in his pocket already, he might do alright. So far that hasn't been the case.
  4. Washington Free Agency 2019

    Keeping that stench of mediocrity has kept us in the 7-9 window. Tank for a year or two to finish off the Alex Smith deal would get us a legitimate QB prospect that we don't have to overpay in draft picks to acquire, and give us better talent at each pick at the top of the round. Tanking for two years also gives you a chance to reset some bad contracts. In the NFL, it's not a 5-6 year proposition like it is in the MLB. Honestly, with the team hamstrung by the Alex Smith contract as far as the cap goes, if they win 6 games, they should consider this year an accomplishment. Even if they add a #1 receiver like AJ Green, we just have too many holes to do much better.
  5. Washington Free Agency 2019

    The crowds that did show up were nearly split even for most of the games at that. Even starting 6-3 didn't get people into the stadium.
  6. At this point, I can only believe that the rampant leaks coming from Redskins Park are either the result of extremely frustrated coaches, or Snyder encourages this stuff to get out. It's all ridiculous at this point that this organization functions the way it does. We're the laughingstock of the NFL, and probably the laughingstock of the business world. On the topic at hand, I completely understand moving on from Norman, but who is going to replace him? His skills are declining, but corners are worth a lot of money. We cut him, and get some back, but any replacement now isn't going to be on a declining Norman level. That would also essentially force our hand to draft a corner early. Of course, this also wouldn't be a problem if Andy Reid didn't rip off Bruce Allen again for a QB.

    Absolutely. I was lucky enough to have three fields just about in my backyard.
  8. Is it too early to focus on the 19 draft?

    As a UGA fan, I'm a big fan of Baker. You can never have too many DBs, and Josh Norman may only be around one more season. I'm also worried about Dunbar's nerve injury, it is always possible he goes the way of Jarrett, so we definitely need some reinforcement in the secondary.

    Mike Trout finalizing a massive 12 year, $430 million contract with the Angels. http://www.espn.com/mlb/story/_/id/26306935/sources-angels-trout-430m-extension
  10. Bengals cut Vontaze Burfict

    But isn't this his seventh concussion? I swear I read that somewhere. It's a huge risk to bring him on board and not expect him to get another one, especially with the way he usually plays
  11. Random Game Talk

    Yes it does. Sadly, all they care about is diamond dynasty and the modes that can bring them micro-transactions. I used to run a gaming site, and my co-owner was an EA GameChanger, and franchise improvements always took a back seat to the Madden Ultimate Team stuff as that mode got introduced.
  12. Washington Free Agency 2019

    I agree with that, especially in the NFL where you have to have a somewhat extensive knowledge of the playbook. It's not like MLB where you are learning just the signs and a few other things, or the NBA/NHL where it's a much scaled down playbook. It's really hard on the defensive side to make those kind of trades mid-season and expect them to work out.

    Does Virginia get upset again?!
  14. Redskins sign OT Erick Flowers (1 year, $4M)

    If anyone can resurrect his career, it's Bill Callahan, but I'm not holding my breath on it. At this point, Flowers is who he is, and from film I've seen, you are correct. Also has real bad footwork that hasn't improved at all.
  15. 2018 MLB Hot Stove Thread

    30-plus starts the past four years. And the Yankees can limit him to whatever innings/times through the roster to save his effectiveness with their bullpen. Really good addition, especially this late.
