Surely if we're talking about whether or not to grease our light poles, chiming in on a major move & the QB standings isn't out of the question. You damn Skip-py (see what I did there).

that wouldn't have just paid him fair market value two years ago and then gotten to work building a team around him. But the geniuses at WFC offered him $12.5M a year. lol

So instead, they're losing him for nothing, and paying a 33 year old occasional game manager nearly as much money as Kirk would have cost.

-The Knicks’ coaching search still includes a lone frontrunner, Kurt Rambis, whose qualifications for the position include a strong relationship with Jackson and a willingness to take the job.

37. "*remembers SOMEONE saying that he would be ruined on WFC*"
In response to Reply # 22


  

          

when it was apparent he was going to go to Cleveland.
If he had gone to the Cleveland team that existed at the time of that draft, they're a hamster wheel playoff team by now, and 0-16 doesn't happen

but never mind the siceage. "The (Aptly-Named) Letter L" (whose identity I know now) was talking all this mess about how much better WFC was because 1991.

in 1991, George Bush, First of His Name was President, talking about The Simpsons as if they were the pinnacle of "Bad American Family".

Also, WFC went 14-2 and won a Super Bowl. A lot has happened since then. A whole lot.

Yes, I'm mad. Let's move on.

32. "this isn't the worst thing, HOW IT WAS DONE is the worst thing"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

Cousins:
Not special
Poor off schedule, but good in a rigidly structured offense
Not athletic
Thrived with mediocre talent surrounding him

Smith:
Not special
Surprisingly good off schedule, but not otherwise dynamic
Ahtletic
Thrived, but with special talent surrounding him

Grading this as a pure QB swap, it's kind of a wash.
Now, Smith is a little older. But Cousins would've cost more.


We included a third round pick, but when Cousins signs elsewhere we'll be compensated a third round pick too so that's also a wash.


We did part with a promising young defensive talent in Kendall Fuller. Given his upside and how bad our Defense is, we weren't at liberty to let that guy go. No position on this team is at a surplus, especially not on that side of the ball.


But what consistently stresses me out, and really does affect my mood more than it should, is how poorly this team does business. They're obsessively, confusingly, frustratingly petty. Maybe McLoughan was a drunk, fine - just fire him and move on, don't drag his name through the mud, alcoholism is a tragedy. Ok, Cousins turned the deal down last Summer, just carry on - don't record a selfie video in a bathroom while on vacation just to announce he spurned the team.

Karma is a real thing, and they just-don't-fuckin-care about it. They think that they must always try to save face, that they must always preserve the benefit of the doubt in the court of public opinion. What they fail to grasp is that there IS NOT BENEFIT OF THE DOUBT LEFT TO GIVE. People hate this owner and his cronies, no limpdick PR management effort can change that.

They didn't just make the trade public last night, they made the terms public too, one more slap in the face to Cousins. I don't even know what the desired outcome in doing that is. It's so sadly spiteful. That's my biggest takeaway from the whole thing.

So, in summary:

- Cousins and Smith are both better-than-average but not great

- we parted with an asset that we should not have parted with

- Once more, we somehow embarrassed ourselves in the process

35. "pretty much agree"
In response to Reply # 32


  

          

If the team had no QB and they signed Smith as a FA for $15M/year or something, to be a placeholder vet. That plan would be fine.

*trading* for Smith, giving him maybe $70M guaranteed at the age of 33, and doing it while you have a perfectly solid QB already on your team (which you managed to somehow fuck up keeping), is a joke.

There are maybe three other teams in the league who would have fucked this all up like Bruce Allen did and not sign Cousins two years ago for a ~5 year deal at market rate.

Bruce and Dan tried to be slick with a lowball offer of $12.5M/year two years ago and it's blown up in their faces.

One of the only decent QBs the franchise has had in like 30 years (seriously), and he's walking out the door for nothing.

In response to Reply # 32


  

          

They could probably have gotten one of the Vikings QBs for cheaper and kept Fuller. Smith isn't a game changer so sign one of the Viking QBs for cheaper and net the same result record wise IMO.

This organization stays doing dumb things.

Upgrade the talent in other areas. Getting one of the Minny QBs would allow Washington to do that.

59. "Bruce has royally fucked this franchise. "
In response to Reply # 32


          

I think he's done worse than Vinnie Cerrato has ever done.

Hiring a drunk was a bad idea. Firing him because he is a drunk just makes you look damn stupid. But I honestly think that it wasn't because of his drinking that got him fired. He pissed Bruce off something serious prolly about Kirk. He did a good job trying to rebuild this team. We were finally going to see something good come to fruition.

Paying top dollar for an old QB is some Vinnie shit.

Sub .400 is inexcusable. Why is Danny keeping his bum ass around. He's killed whatever momentum we had because of his egomania with GMSM. Fuck this guy.

He is a better GM than Allen and everyone knew it.

I'm eager to find out who really wants Kirk Cousins that badly.

He's going to be expensive man

Arizona
Denver
Cleveland (if they trade back from 1)
NY Jets

Those are the only real obvious landing spots for me.

b/c the Bortles extension money they can't afford to switch to Cousins. But they shouldn't have given Bortles that extension.

Unless they think he's actually a 2nd tier QB... which he's not.

He's 29 and looking for a big contract. Not *nearly* good enough to consider giving one. I'll take my chances with a season of 26-year-old Blake next year over that. After that, Blake's a free agent-- so next year will give him plenty of incentive to deliver and show the Jags he's the guy a winning franchise wants to rely on.

For better or worse, he either puts a competent QB on the roster or 2018 or hits the bricks. The only guy who makes that an immediate reality for him is Cousins. Long-term planning be damned, no one's trying to see Siemian/Lynch/Osweiler-level quarterbacking here anymore.

The Washington team has a racist name so fuck them. Fuck them again for freeing Kirk and placing the Browns in a position to overpay him and wind up looking like the Texans after signing Osweiler.

Fuck the fact that any good players changed teams not named the teams I root for.

Fuck the Chiefs for trading Alex Smith to Washington instead of Cleveland like they should've done.
