Just a overall dumbass move. We need to call this season what it is. A lame duck season for Gruden and Bruce Allen. Allen sure knows how to sucker you guys. Just sign the hottest guy and BLAM, you're right back into the kool-aid.





Mark my words. This team will be no better than 7-9 next year, and we're fucking our salary cap in doing so. It's better to build a team from bottom up conserving that cap until we need to spend it. Sure there is a cap floor, but that doesn't mean you need to spend it all. You can roll over unused cap. Good teams do this. Bad teams like ours waste it and max it out on average players.
Gotta disagree on a few things. Our safeties tackling was a huge issue last year. Often the scheme was good and players whiffed. Collins won't whiff. We have competent CBs our issue was often middle of the field, like TEs. Again LC will help. Our D had shining moments, especially the front line so a strong mid field presence was crucial.

Whether the price was worth it is a separate question and for now I think we have to wait on answering it.

Somewhere Bruce Allen is sitting back sipping on crown royal with lil Danny thinking........"suckers" .........as he watches all the Redskins fan direct their attention to the shiny new toy.

Lotsa Bama dudes on this D. And potentially CJ Mosley too?

Hail Tide. Or Roll to the Redskins.

I guess if you're gonna go after one school's talent, Bama's a good one to focus on.

Re: Redskins sign Landon Collins 6 yr/84M

I can agree we overpaid. But we also filled a need with a young elite player.
If all the right moves are made (ZB, MF, VD, Scherff) we'd be looking at nearly 30M of available cap space, where would that cap be better spent ?

Re: Redskins sign Landon Collins 6 yr/84M

I assume Smith comes off the books next year. As well as Norman? Maybe they felt that whomever is playing QB for this team won't be making 2nd contract money, so they felt they could over spend on a player or two. That is the only reason I can see them doing this signing. . Otherwise I just don't get it at all.

Re: Redskins sign Landon Collins 6 yr/84M

I liked Landon definitely a plus in the locker room and he is a great tackler . I thought the Giants should have moved him up to a LBer but that was me. He can not cover a cold and has been hurt the last two seasons ,he will be missed but I think the Skins way ,way over paid for him.

Re: Redskins sign Landon Collins 6 yr/84M

If Collins cap number is less than $10 million in 2019 and they intend to sign their draft choices.... then they are out of money.

Time to make cuts

I didn't see this coming, we had such a perfect team in place last year. There's no easy cut on this roster!

Apparently they think everyone has some trade value.

Re: Redskins sign Landon Collins 6 yr/84M

Collins is well respected around the league as a true locker room leader. Something this team needs big time

I wager Collins will be used the way Sua Cravens was drafted to be used. Hybrid LB / Safety. Three safety package he goes to LB. Put him where he can impact the most not in a strict scheme.

Re: Redskins sign Landon Collins 6 yr/84M

I saw the poll on here earlier and I decided not to vote yet and think about it. Then I remembered Zeke and Saquon are in our division. Sounds like a big hitting box safety is exactly what we need.

Who the EFF cares about the money??? Collins was one of the guys I was hoping we would get and we got him. Now, on to draft our next quarterback.
