Kirk Cousins will now be a FA and will end up as the league's highest paid player.

Do you happen to have a Toronto Phantoms jersey from our failed foray into arena football? Been looking for one but Ebay too pricey

Washington is giving up a lot and investing a lot:

$71M guarantees is probably injury protected. The actual amount should be lower.joeyjoejoe wrote: ↑ Washington is giving up a lot and investing a lot:
-Losing a young talented (and cheap) CB Kendall Fuller
-Investing roughly $24 million per year on a QB who is about par with Cousins.
-Losing 3rd round pick, but gaining compensatory 3rd or 4th round pick when Cousins signs for another team.
So at the end of the day, they are down one CB and locked in with Alex Smith for the next 4 years.
Meanwhile KC, has a bunch of extra cap room, extra pick, new CB (with Eric Berry coming back, that's scary secondary) and if Mahomes turns into a decent QB, KC has a chance at a legit SB run next year.
I hear Cousins might go to the Browns, but my money is on the Broncos.

Props for your objectivity. I didn't realize atm that the Eagles were only 8 pts up so Brady almost did it.Biff88 wrote: ↑ So nobody here watched the Super Bowl? Yes I am a disappointed Pats fan, but you can't win them all. Really they were fortunate to beat Atlanta and Seattle the last 2 times, so I am at peace with this loss.
My take is that 2 things were the deciding factors. 1. The defense could not come up with any big stops. Seems like Foles converted every 3rd down they needed. A couple of 3rd down stops would have changed the complexion of the game. 2. The Pats really need to get some big bodied physical wide receivers ala Kelvin Benjamin/Alshon Jeffrey to go against aggressive defenses like the Eagles have. They always seems to prefer the small guys.
Too bad Cooks went out early with concussion..frustrated that no flag was thrown for the helmet to helmet hit.
Oh well at least it was a team that had never won a SB before. The long suffering Eagles fans are pretty happy. Wonder how Carson Wentz feels though...this was his season.

I read it was a combination of him recovering from the flu, missing curfew and not playing well during practice. A 100% Butler could have made the deference, but he was a very average CB this year. Also the Patriots have a long track record of benching big names before games and even during games. Nobody would know who Butler was in the first place if they didn't bench Kyle Arrington mid way through the SB against the Seahawks.

I hear ya and always said yes the Pats are machines but those 2 SBs were gifted due to boneheaded decisions from the other team...It's as if they suddenly forgot how to play football in addition to basic math.grappos13 wrote: ↑ was a really fun and great super bowl... very glad that the Patriots lost...
I am still in the one that doesnt think Brady is the GOAT..even with the 5 Super Bowl Rings... as the Pats fan earlier said, they got VERY fortunate.. almost to the point things seemed rigged...to have won their last 2 Super Bowls... still have no idea HOW Seattle doesnt run with Lynch on 2nd and goal from the 2 yard line.. with a time out.. you telling me Lynch cant punch it in in 3 tries? if you lose the superbowl because he cant get in that way.. so be it... he was one of the top RB in league and the strongest.... as for the win vs. Atlanta.. the comeback was great, dont get me wrong... but after Julio Jones makes that great catch at the Pats 21 yard line with 4 minutes left, how do you not just run the ball 3 times and hit the FG to go up by 11 points.. you then are up a converted TD and FG with like 2 min left... or 4 min left and 0 timeouts for Pats... ridiculous... yes a 40 yard FG is not a guarantee but its probably at least 80%+...
even the superbowls earlier.. viniteri with game winners as time runs out in both of them... only the philly win did they really do well and got ahead in the 4th and take a 10 point lead...
