Re: Cousins 3.0, he's going to sign the franchise tag

If we force Kirk to play in 2017, we wont get jack for him in 2018... I still hope we sign him but I just dont think KC wants to stay

Re: Cousins 3.0, he's going to sign the franchise tag

Per Michael silver of NFLN
"From what I've heard, I wouldn't rule out the jets contacting Washington for cousins."

I would rather him go to SF, get a better pick but whatever at this point.

Re: Cousins 3.0, he's going to sign the franchise tag

Just trade him. We never have a full agreeance on anything really. But I think we have just about a 100% consensus that he doesn't want to be here. Do we want the leader of the team going thru the motions? Someone said they'd rather go 6-10 with Colt than have the same time performance as we did this year with Kirk, I agree.

Draft the QB from Pittsburgh in the 2nd round. We have 10 picks, we can use 1 on a qb.

Re: Cousins 3.0, he's going to sign the franchise tag

Should have used the transition tag before this all went down. Now Cousins either plays on a one year (and see ya later) or he gets traded for peanuts. Meanwhile, there's a good chance the Patriots are going to trade Garoppolo to the Browns for a first. This is a monumental screwup of the tallest order.

You blew it in our last game and cost us playoffs and for that you get 44 million..Im not sure i want him on the team anymore..go on to San Fran and lose your ass for the next 4 years..Kyle is going to fall on his face as a head coach..just like Norv Turner ..the only thing i am hoping for is we get compensation for him ..at least a number 1 and send him packing..The redskins with colt will win twice as many games as 69ers with Kirk..
That was was my first thought too, however all of next year every time he's on the field he's effectively auditioning for his next gig. Just on a pure selfish level he has a lot of motivation to play well. I think he really wants to show the world that he's the real deal. So I'll take him for one more year even if it's not permanent.

Of course he dislikes the Shanahan's. Mike has basically trolled Snyder ever since he was fired.

Re: Cousins 3.0, he's going to sign the franchise tag

He may have asked for a trade but there still is plenty of opportunity to sign him.
If he's going to sign his tender then maybe there has been positive dialogue.
If not then we have a whole year to prepare for acquiring a new quarterback, I really dont care if Cousins is a lame duck or not and I'm not going to spend a whole year gnashing my teeth over it.
No where to go but up......

Re: Cousins 3.0, he's going to sign the franchise tag

Fact is a lame duck qb has a lot to play for. Unless he wants to be out of football and retire with 44M in the bank. Yes he may worry about his health more, but otherwise he would face even more pressure than this year. Last year you figure the pressure was maybe a 5M per year difference - he stinks he gets 19/year and says Yay, he lights it up, wins a SB and walks away with 24M/yr. Next year, given the slide in low tier qbs, if he stinks it up, or gets hurt, he base would probably stay around 18-19, but his pressure to light it up, could net him 30-32M/yr. He would in effect be creating a huge pressure on himself of his own making.

Re: Cousins 3.0, he's going to sign the franchise tag

suppose he plays shaky next year ( we lost Djax ,Garcon) and has a fall off in his play..NOW What will everybody say...I can tell you this same forum will be saying ..looks like somebody knew this about Kirk.glad we did not sign him long term.. Look guys Kirk is good but its not like he is a true franchise guy..(he is the best we have had..but who have we had??) yea yea..he broke a lot of records but any good modern day QB will break records in this pass happy league (they call PI on every other play)..I like kirk but he has some issues that i believe will hurt him ..He needs to grow up a little and not be so thin skinned(no pun)..it seems his ego gets bruised really easy..remember when he would throw a pick and go in the tank..he did improve on that but he is showing the same traits in this whole contract deal..Its like I don't want to play for you guys because you did me wrong by paying me 44 million dollars..(remember he was passed over by a lot of teams in the draft and had he gone to the wrong team things could have been much worse for him..he seems ungrateful to me. We need a LEADER LONG TERM at the QB position ..not somebody showcasing for another team ..so unless he is on board and agrees to a contract that is fair ..say 100-120 million 5 year with incentives then we need to trade him asap for the most we can get.Also think about this IF he truly Thinks he is all that then why with a huge shortage of QB's in league there is not a lot of teams wanting him..Bears,Jets,49ers,browns,texans,bills,broncos all need help and 49ers are the only team showing real interest..you would think the texans or broncos would be calling but it seems they would rather have Tony Romo than Cousins..Im telling you guys Cousins aint all that and smart folks around league know this. The lack of interest in those teams going after him is very telling..

Look guys, Kirk is good, but it's not like he is a true franchise guy(he is the best we have had, but who have we had?) Yeah yeah, he broke a lot of records but any good modern day QB will break records in this pass-happy league(they call PI on every other play).

I like Kirk but he has some issues that I believe will hurt him. He needs to grow up a little and not be so thin skinned(no pun). It seems his ego gets bruised really easily. Remember when he would throw a pick and go in the tank. He did improve on that, but he is showing the same traits in this whole contract deal. It's like he's saying, "I don't want to play for you guys because you did me wrong by paying me 44 million dollars." Remember, he was passed over by a lot of teams in the draft, and had he gone to the wrong team things could have been much worse for him. He seems ungrateful to me. We need a LEADER LONG TERM at the QB position, not somebody showcasing for another team... so unless he is on board and agrees to a contract that is fair, say 100-120 million over 5 years with incentives, we need to trade him ASAP for the most we can get.

Also think about this: IF he truly thinks he is all that then why with a huge shortage of QB's in the league are there not a lot of teams wanting him? Bears, Jets, 49ers, Browns, Texans, Bills, and Broncos all need help, but the 49ers are the only team showing real interest. You would think the Texans or Broncos would be calling but it seems they would rather have Tony Romo than Cousins. I'm telling you guys, Cousins aint all that and smart folks around the league know this. The lack of interest in those teams going after him is very telling.

Re: Cousins 3.0, he's going to sign the franchise tag

Mike McCartney ✔ @MikeMcCartney7
QB @KirkCousins8 has signed his Franchise contract
11:19 AM - 10 Mar 2017

So now we see if it precedes a trade.

This is the interesting part. I honestly don't know whether to be happy about this, or not. I love Cousins and hope he stays, but if he's leaving for sure, I want something for him.

I would say the Redskins should draft a quarterback but this year's class isn't very deep, and I'd rather them use their higher rounds on the defense.

Re: Cousins 3.0, he's going to sign the franchise tag

I'll take Carlos Hyde along with those picks. + a 3rd rounder.
And some bacon.
