Re: Around the NFL Week 13

The fact that we got something for him and that we paid only 3.5M for below to average QB play is fine. Unfortunately, as we all know the kicker was at the front end, the only way we "break even" is if we are magically awarded 2nd and 4th round picks.

Little? He was paid 14.7 million for that season.Is 14.7 million for 1 season of mediocre QB play not that bad? My main point was is that he was already under contract,he had been benched.They{Shanahans}were not happy with his play and had other issues with him.But on the night they get their asses handed to them in front of America its announced they sign him to a new contract.Who does that? Then benches him again driving down his market value even more. Only the redskins

Ndamukong Suh involved in Portland car accident; no injuries or impairment reported - Shutdown Corner - NFL*Blog - Yahoo! Sports

Ndamukong Suh was in a car accident in Portland today. I guess my only question is why wasn't he driving his Chrysler 300? Because you know, he's all about grittiness and reliability, and that's what the 300 is.

He would have become a UFA and simply walked. We probably get no draft picks in return.

Cap hit matters more than money doled out. McNabb isn't killing us with deadcap.

You make it sound like they decided at halftime of the Monday Night game to sign him

No, he makes it sound like it was decided to hand McNabb a contract extension after we got our asses kicked by the Eagles. Why does it matter though? Obviously they put a nice escape clause into the contract so the Skins could get out of it if they wanted to, which they did. And who cares how much money they spent? It's Dan Snyder's money, he can spend it if he wants to. The only money that matters is the money that counts against the cap, and that was relatively little.

I'll agree with you for the moment but I'd imagine DS being the business man he is does not take the monitary fall for these decisions. As an example I'll use the Big Oil companies. A huricane comes through and destroys a couple of rigs and repairs have to be made or a new well dug and the cost is patched down to the consumer (you and me) when you see the gas prices go up and down at the pump.

So I'm guessing DS makes up for his bad decisions or monitary losses by either raising food costs, beer cost, seat costs, or parking costs. Just my business sense but I could be wrong. But my spidey senses tell me we the fans in the long run are some how paying for it even though we'd like to think it's all Dan's money.

Danny never ever was afraid to have a gargantuan payroll. Hell, we broke the biggest payroll record twice. The dude isn't afraid to get burned by the stove two or even three times.

Besides, a good deal of money he gets is corporate money. Money that consumers paid to corporations first before it landed in his pocketbook.

That was not my intention,I just meant the timing was bad,it made the skins look like fools,especially since at the time they were saying it was 40 million gauranteed.My main point is it was IMO another bad descision.That's a lot of money just to be throwing away,and yes he could have just walked away at the end of the yr and we would have got nothing,that's a valid point.So why bench him and drive his stock down further? I just have no confidence in the shanahans to make the right descisions regarding QBs. Their choices so far have been horrendous
I'll stake by reputation on Beck and Grossman

Watching OK OKSt.....no thanks on Landry Jones. Looks rattled and I thought he had better pocket awareness than he is showing tonight.

Re: Around the NFL Week 13

Its what I've said about Landry all year, he's a decent QB but not a Big time NFL QB

Was just about to post this.

Looking more like Smith will join Turner out the door | SignOnSanDiego.com


You really have to fire the guy with all the talent he's allowed to leave without any compensation, and then the public feuds with other star players doesn't bode well either.
