Pachyderm Kirk

January 8, 2018

Lets talk about the biggest elephant in the room – can a deal with Kirk Cousins get done?  We’ve done a lot of stories over the years about it here.  Steve’s written some exhaustive stuff about what the value for the deal should be in the past read the latest from this past offseason here.

Two things came up over the last few days that are worth talking about: Kirk’s two hour Q&A with fans on this past Friday, and the recent comments by Jay Gruden that he wants the team to get a deal done.  It seems like, from my perspective, that Kirk is a lot more open this year to staying with the team on a long-term basis than he was last season.  From what he said publicly, the loss of McVay last year was a big reason he didn’t want to re-sign.  It could all be posturing sure.  I would hope that if he’s being sincere, that he will see that the lost of his close friend at offensive coordinator was not the end of the world.

Gruden likewise has said publicly that he wants a long term deal done for Cousins, and if it’s not long term the team’s best move would be to let Kirk move on to another team. Not that anyone should have expected him to say something different, but if you’re thinking big picture, the coach’s comments make a lot of sense. After all, Gruden has 3 years left on his deal, and as a offensive minded coach he deserves to know who his QB will be for those years.

If the team locks Kirk up, the staff knows him and can build a roster around what Kirk does best.  They can find him a deep threat to open things up for Doctson and Crowder and go forward as an offense.  If the Redskins do (whether by choice or because they get outbid) move on to a new guy, they will need years to figure out that player, his strengths and weaknesses, and build around him, and all that’s just assuming they find the right guy their first try. If you give the team a new rookie quarterback, odds are he is going to need to be given all 3 seasons to coach the kid up into a NFL caliber QB, as most guys take time to get to that point at the quarterback position. Does the front office have the patience for that?  The ones that get it right their first season are the exception, not the rule.

That’s really what the whole discussion comes down to.  At some level you have two totally separate debates about the quarterback and about building the roster. Are we as a fanbase willing to go through another couple years of rebuilding the QB position, which would most likely cause another couple years of losing seasons? I can’t answer for you – let us know what you think in the comment section below.

    I’m thinking sf713 and DC could unite on an RGIII article.

  • Flounder

    he Better Business Bureau has given the Big Baller Brand the lowest rating possible: an F.

    On its website, the organization says Big Baller Brand’s ratings are based on 32 complaints filed against the business, a failure to respond to 12 of those complaints and five complaints that still haven’t been resolved.

    Most of the complaints are from people who said they bought an item from the Big Baller website in November and December, and that they were charged for their orders even though that item or items have failed to show up.

    • Back to the good ol daysBruce

      Yea the fiancé loves there show. That’s a hard pass for me and those ugly ass shoes.

      But i like that he’s challenging the NCAA system by creating a pay for plan league for b-ball players

        • Hope-18

          I was being facetious

  • Flounder

    This could be a the deepest D-line draft in a long time.

    • Different_Cat

      Last time peeps said that we didn’t pick a DL until the 5th round.

      • Flounder

        Yeah well the guy that made those decisions is gone.

        • Squinns

          Drunken fool…..

  • Flounder

    First time I have seen this guy mocked to us.

    13. Washington Redskins
    Taven Bryan, DL, Florida. Bryan is likely to be a draft riser after what should be a strong showing at the combine. With the amount of sub-packages featured up front in today’s NFL, a player who’s comfortable getting to the quarterback from any spot on the line is very valuable.

    • noonefromtampa

      I think he just declared, have not seen him ranked so high though

      • Flounder

        I would take Payne or Wilkins over this guy

        • noonefromtampa

          Walter has him ranked #4
          after Wilkins, Payne and before Hurst

      • noonefromtampa

        He was projected as a high 2019 pick
        not sure where he ends up with all the DL people coming out this year

        • Flounder

          Maybe we can get him in the second round.

      • Different_Cat

        I’ve seem him comped to Suh. Not as good, but still very good and similar game.

  • kon, for now

    Wut’d I miss?

      Oh I know who you are. You went to Robert Frost Jr High and Richard Montgomery High before it became a good school. I knew who you were through people I knew at RM and yep, dude, you know me (at least know who I am, we don’t know each other) and you are a total loser.

        I told you all that moron

        • Scamp

          • Hope-18

            I’m surprised you spelled everything right in that post. Except as usual you’re grammar is wrong. it would be Kirk’s not Kirks… and crude insults is all you got.

  • Flounder

    I keep forgetting we can cuss here.

  • Scamp

    Anyways… when can the Skins actually start negotiating with Kirk?

    • Squinns

      Right now. As soon as the season was over for the Skins.

      • Scamp

        Yea? Interesting… thought it was when the league year ended.

        • Squinns

          Nope. As soon as the applicable team’s season is over.

          • Scamp

            Well that was like a month ago…

    • Flounder

      Yeah they can start now, although Kirk said he wanted to slow walk the negotiations whatever that means.

      • Scamp

        He’s done that from day one. Dude knows he holds all the cards

    • Different_Cat

      They can negotiate now.

    • alex35332

      Yep, they could start talking last week. But given what Kirk said, odds are nothing will be offered till a day or two before FA.

    After the regulars and a few others migrate here should be easier to attract some advertising revenue

  • Squinns

    And now we’re just waiting on Buck….

  • btg

    Kurt Benkert

    • alex35332

      I like the potential there. Was impressed in the few games I saw of his.

      • btg

        In the third
        Give him a year behind colt

        • alex35332

          I think he may go later than that even. Think he’s probably more likely some one I’d take to replace Colt and be behind Kirk as a #2.

  • Scamp

    One other thing to add to the article above about transitioning a new QB… A rookie QB’s conversion to a real QB is always made easier by a stout running game… which we do not have. Our offense is heavily reliant on the QB… which will make it that much harder on any rookie.

    • Back to the good ol daysBruce

      Agree. That and I wonder if Jay will be flexible in designing an offense to suit a young spread QB similar to what eagles did with Wentz.

      • Scamp

        Before the final bowl game I was for giving Lamar Jackson a shot at just that. After the bowl game I’m not so sure…

    • alex35332

      A good point. And there’s a ton of other factors that go into it too. I’d also add that I think even if we keep Kirk, I still think they should draft a rookie to be the backup and be groomed.

      Honestly I wanted to create a new post because it was asked for and wanted to keep this place fresh. I think Jay can adjust the system well enough to a new kid like Bruce mentioned, but it will take time, like I said you have to figure out what a kid is good at then tailor your offense to it. .

  • btg

    Uh what is this place

  • alex35332

    Lets see if I can post links from twitter. This is something crazy, there are now 2 Arena Football Players as head coaches in the NFL. I feel like the Bears just ripped us off.

    By the way… who are the official Hog Sty people these days? I know Kelly bailed out…

    • alex35332

      The show is Me, Steve (AKA 713), Sean (AKA DiscoRobot), and Jamual Forrest who wasn’t a RI person before joining our show.

      Kelly left for creative reasons didn’t like the direction we were heading at one point in wanting to get a lot of guests.
      Robbie left because another podcast network offered him an opportunity that he thought would help get him a shot at a career.

      We also have the show “it’s just business” that’s Steve, Slick Rick and original Insider poster, Chris Larry.

  • Steve Thomas

    A couple things: we’ll start putting all of the Redskins press release stuff that they email us up here instead of just on Twitter, as long as I can keep up with it in a timely manner. Roster moves, etc. etc. It might not be an in-depth post, but it’ll be something. Also, if you guys have an idea for a column that you want us to research, speak up.

    • Squinns

      Hope all is well, 713. Looking forward to harassing you more!

      Rick shows up like two minutes after I tell him the white women are over here.

      We won’t ever ask you to pay for anything. But we will and do have advertisers on occasion, if people could support them that would be nice. We are in talks with a fairly big one right now for the podcast.

        • alex35332

          It didn’t. And the new software probably has one, I can look into it. But you know I’m also anti censorship. As moderator I do have power to delete posts/ban folks if needed, but It is not something I want to do if I don’t have too.

    • Flounder

      Just testing what we can say.

      • alex35332

        I think that I’d have to manually go in and delete something, so it’s more or less a free-for all.
