Just when you thought that Washington was turning the corner they revert to themselves.....

While I think Cousins has potential why they used the FT instead of the TT is beyond me....

Beyond that Cousins is 11-14 as a starter..He had a great 7 game stretch (sound familiar?

They just did what the Eagles refrained from...set an artificial negotiating floor for the player...

He really had a phenomenal season, even his poor games weren't disasters. Which means, naturally, that he's going to go 3-13 next year and Washington will end up picking another QB in the 2017 draft ahead of us.

It reminds me of Nick Foles in 2013. You surround a guy with a solid O Line and lots of weapons and a half-decent QB will look good.

How is that going to make Sam B and his agent feel : (

It is surprising that they'd use the franchise tag not transition tag. Isn't the TT # around $17mil? How can Cousins be worth more than that?

The theory is for an extra $2M you close the market to him unless they pay you two 1st round picks.

If you want him as your QB, less likely he gets other offers with the draft pick penalty.

In hindsight, they guaranteed $20M, we guaranteed $22M for Bradford.

Just sayin', that's the theory.
