I guess I might need to put IMO for those incapable of differentiating facts from opinions. Thought we were all adults here. My bad.

We pretty much all know it's your opinion, but the matter-of-fact way it's posted can make it seem like you're posting your opinion as fact.

You’re not wrong.

But you are likely to be.  First off, you don't trade players to just cut other ones...doing that alone would and should get you fired.  Second, unlike the situation with both Childress and Frazier (and to a lesser extent, even Tice), there's no writing on the wall that a firing is imminent.  He will certainly eventually get fired, everyone in sports is hired to get fired.  But, as of right now, the culture is still intact...and that's the most important thing to ownership.  We also have to remember that this is an odd year for everyone.  Now, if they are struggling during the 2021 year, that's a whole different story.  Then, you'll likely see a change.  But to suggest that someone is begging for their job is over the top.

We’ll just have to wait and see.

For Spielman to think trading a second round pick for Yannick was some how going to push the team into a playoff run shows how delusional he really is.

He also has said the team hasn’t lost faith in Kirk Cousins which is 100% false.

Harrison Smith will more than likely be traded and once he’s gone there’s zero leadership on the defense and the team has no identity again.

Complete rebuild mode.

First, what do you expect him to tell the public..."Umm, yeah, there's some guys in the locker room that are questioning Kirk"?  

Second, why would Harrison Smith be traded?  Especially now that Iloka is out for the year as well...and he's still under contract for a reasonable amount for 2021 and he's currently your best player on defense.  There's absolutely no reason to trade him...nor would that make any sense at all.  There's no upside to trading him.

Ourlads, while unofficial, has Jalyn Holmes starting. He's more of a hybrid DT/DE.

Regardless, they may split reps.

What I'd love to see is Watt become a starter. He's not too bad!

I don't know what his value is, but if you could get a mid to late 1st rounder for him, it could be used to move up in the draft. The only upside I see

That sounds like something a certain Oval Office guy says all the time.

It’s going to be a beautiful trade. No one has ever made a trade like this one. It’s going to be the greatest trade ever!
