This is the right competition and I think pushes Haskins to prepare.

I don’t view Allen as a starter over Haskins potential.
We have to have a backup QB. Not worried about the competition. But the pick is too high especially considering we already don't have a 2nd. I just don't get it. We could sign a veteran FA, a bunch of UDFA guys to compete for the backup spot or use a 7th rounder.

We now don't have selections in 3 rounds of the draft. Easily the worst move of the offseason.

When you draft a backup QB in rounds 5-7, you have that player on a cheap rookie contract for 4 years. This is the last year of Allen's rookie deal. Next year he either walks or we have to pay him decent backup money.

we have a had a HIGH fifth round pick - this was way too much for Allen. Should have been one of the 7ths.

Sad

He wasn't even drafted. He just signed a 1 year deal after the season.

This is why HCs can't be the general manager. Need a non biased professional GM.

Oh well, we'll see what the draft holds but this was a big surprise IMO

Re: Skins trade for Kyle Allen

585k is cheaper than what we would probably have to pay if he was released and teams were able to bid on him. so we give up some draft capital but maybe save a mil or so in cap this year.

thats if we use our cap money. seems like every year we dont use all of our cap and just roll it over. which im fine with bc iot makes next year a better year for us to add pieces and be a competitive football team.

10.8 million was rolled over from last years unused cap. I get being smart, rolling over cap ... but at some point do we fully commit to going all in on winning?

when do we say, this is the year we go 100% to winning?

I wouldn't mind so much if we had a bunch of extra picks, but we have few to start with and it seems likely we were bidding against ourselves

Maybe we can trade a 4th for their water boy. Heard he's hitting mouths from 10 feet out.

dude .. its a 5th rounder for a 24 year old QB who has already played 12 games in the NFL and our new HC and OC seem to like.

if it was a 6th, everyone would be fine with it.

give RR a little more patience and leway then immediately condemning him.

its a 5th rounder ffs. good lord

besides we do have a GM in Smith

Drafting chase young isn't going to make us a winner right now, I'd just stock up on picks and add more talent

Not surprised by this move. With the possibility of a shortened offseason we need someone in the building that knows the system.

Don’t hate this move at all.

I am thinking most fans want to see us winning the off-season.


Let the FO make their moves and the season will show the quality of the plan. After 20 years of a broken FO and every strategy under the sun, I am going to go out on a limb and say that fans of the Skins won't know a good plan when we see it.
