    Remember the last time we traded for a division rival's QB? I'd be right there with you, El. Would be difficult to support this team on Sundays and enough to push me away.

    Appreciate the cap breakdown Kel, Rig and BB. Always thought it fluctuates year to year based on viewership. Good stuff to know...and knowing's half the battle!

    I'm reading a lot of BS about could Romo being the starting QB next year for Washington.. . WTH kinda Vinny Cerrato move would that be? I swear, I deeply love the colors of B&G and have loved this football organization for pretty much my whole almost 48 years on this planet IF this Cowpuke is wearing our B&G, then sadly, I'm done and my new favorite B&G colors will be black and gold and I will try rooting for Pittsburgh.

    The Washington Redskins are surrounded by the most adversarial group of beat writers that I've ever seen cover a pro sports team.

    They sling hockey against the wall at an absurdly high rate.

    Rappaport should be forced to either produce evidence conversations have occurred or admit he made it up out of thin air. There are literally zero ethics in journalism today.

    The fact that it's taken almost 2 seasons to resolve the Cousins contract situation leaves the Redskins open to every kind of kook story that can be fabricated and put out there.

    John Elway or Bill Belichick would never let their organizations swing in the wind for this long over the drama of the Cousins situation.

    To be fair the Skins FO has remained pretty quiet. Everything we're reading is rampant speculation by the press. From the Scotty situation to the Cousins situation they've been pretty on message and not wavered from it. Support for Scotty and the 'we see our future with Kirk'.

    Maybe there's something to be said for them saying something to at least refute some of the rumours, but should they really need to?

    The Kirk thing has dragged on, but it's also easy to see why. We got burnt on RGIII and last year took a sensible approach that was always a bit of a gamble in respect that if Kirk played well he'd have all the leverage. To be honest I'm still pretty happy that's how the Skins approached this. I bet Houston wishes they'd been more circumspect last year...

    Skins just need to accept what's happened, bite the bullet and do the deal.

    Kirk and Julie Cousins are expecting. Just announced a short time ago. Now, will the baby be born in NOVA, Cleveland, San Fran, Chicago, or NY?

    You keep giving Elway way too much credit. He did have his organization swinging in the wind last year. They also sucked this year. Peyton got them to the Super Bowl a couple times, but without him around they haven't exactly been setting the world on fire. The Brock Osweiler situation looks good on them in retrospect, but it was not exactly a quiet offseason for them last year.

    They donkeys are not on the pats level. Maybe it's because I'm near it that I hear the news that you haven't. But Elway does not belong in the same breath as what Belichick has done.

    This is the first time a HC has been extended in the Dan Snyder era.

    Honestly, if he's in the middle of a bad situation then he deserves to go somewhere better. With that said, I'd take him as a GM 10x out of 10 over Bruce.

    Dan Snyder has owned the Redskins for 18 years. Overseen eight different head coaches. Jay Gruden is the first to get a contract extension.

    It will have appositive effect on the offseason, for sure. And that's a good thing.

    But unless the extension salary is guaranteed, like the original, he's still a 6 win season in 2017 away from being fired.

    PFT wants everyone to believe that our franchise is in major disarray and chaos, and the extension of Gruden was simply completed for optics heading into free agency.

    If anything, being a relatively competent franchise for a two year period doesn't do much to erase an otherwise 25 year run of futility.

    Skepticism will be something we as a fan base have to live with for as long as Dan Snyder owns this franchise.
