Kirk Cousins is a good NFL QB but I really do not think he wants to be a part of this franchise ...

it is that time of year again for Washington fans - Dan Snyder's managing makes the off season 'entertaining'
Redskins need to fire Bruce Allen - things could get better quickly if we had better decision makers

That was the most Kirk Week 17 possible. Kind of like last year where I think they were ready to pay him but Week 17 disaster scared them. But you have to balance it out with the rest of the season.

I think the Redskins should be aggressive trying to keep him. I think he is a a fringe top 10 QB and is good enough to win the Big One. They shouldn't allow the idea of a record contract scare them. That's just business. Next offseason another QB will get a bigger contract. But if the Browns, Broncos, and others turn it into a bidding war, they need to be ready to walk away from the table and go into next season as Colt McCoy as a starter.

If Kirk walks, it isn't a good thing, but there is a path forward. Cap flexibility is available. Keep your current free agents on defense, add one more interior offensive lineman, maybe one more WR, and see if you can find one more safety or maybe and extra defensive lineman. Past that, where are the holes? Lots of talent on this roster. Colt McCoy can manage a game and give us a shot at winning some games while we develop a backup. And with a pretty solid roster, you can think about trading up a few spots. If they got into the top 10, a QB will drop. Josh Allen, Lamar Jackson, or Mayfield will drop and be a great option to build on.
