Case to Washington

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Broncos send Case Keenum to Washington..

..and they'll pay part of his salary but they get a lot of cap space back

 

Good for Case..with Alex Smith out, he'll get a chance to start again

I think all the Skins have is Colt McCoy

 

 

Broncos have over $40 mil is cap space now....

Talk is their target is CJ Mosely

The terms appear to be....

 

Denver gets a 6.

 

Washington get a 7 AND Keenum.

 

Yet the latest QB deal that shows what a buyers market it is this year, NOT a sellers market.

This is what happens when you try to be too smart AND OR too cheap for your own good.

They had Kurt Cousins. A above average player that plays the most premium position in sports. They wouldn't commit to him and give him his money not wanting to overpay him. So they wind up overpaying a older Alex Smith instead.

And now they have Case Keenum going forward. haha

You could look at it another way. The Vikings had Case Keenum and went 13-3. The following offseason, they overpaid for an overrated Kirk Cousins and went 8-7-1 with almost the same team. Now the Vikings have no cap flexibility because of the contract they gave Cousins and have to cut players to create cap space to strengthen the team around Cousins. :(

They could not have forseen Smith's injury...and they weren't being cheap on Cousins..they just weren't sure about him

..and Case is better than Colt McCoy.

You can go backward and correct decisions...You can only go forward..

all true..they could have kept Case for half of what they pay Kirk.'

Case isn't bad..He just isn't really good..

….and ex-Pro Bowl LB Anthony Barr wouldn't be a free agent

Exactly. The Vikings re-sign the players of value that they draft. We don't let them get to free agency. Barr is the first one we are losing. We may also have to cut Everson Griffen and Kyle Rudolph to free up some money. We would not have needed that had we signed Cousins or another QB for $20 million or less. I knew this would happen.

I've always thought highly of Cousins too (perennial 4000 yard passer, will come close to 30 TDs each season), but when you look more closely, you could say he's very overrated. 

 

 

He doesn't play well in big games or against good teams.  His individual stats at the end of the season seem impressive, but they don't translate to wins.  I always thought Washington made a big mistake in letting him go, but after doing a bit more research on him, I completely understand it.

The problem was, the Vikings knew they weren't winning a SB with Case Keenum so they had to make a switch. Yeah he made it to the Title Game but so did Mark Sanchez, both were not making it farther than that. In order for an average QB to win a SB you need an all-time great defense or it will never happen. Like the Ravens had in 2000 with Dilfer or the Bucs had in 2002 with Johnson. Most of the time you need a good to great QB to win it all, like 90% of the time to be truthful. Before anyone says Foles won one, he is much better than Keenum. Flacco is too but Flacco still had a defense with Ray Lewis on it to get big stops.

Yes, I know. Cousins was supposed to be an upgrade at QB. However, his contract has now made it difficult to sign other players to make winning a SB reality. If he earned $20 million/year, that would be $8 million that we would have to bolster the OL so that Cousins can play better. 

 

I'd rather have a middling QB at $15 million per year than a slightly better one at $28 million/year.

Well, I guess we are not losing Barr after all.

    • It scares me seeing all those DT's ranked so high. I am really hoping for that position at either 26 or 34.  That was the missing piece during the Manning years. I don't want to go through that again.
    • I'm sure you're right....   that they use the same grading system.   But I wonder if they should be?   Let me see if I can elaborate....   On the NFL level...    it's the best vs. the best.   Grown man vs. grown man.    Every game carries equal weight.    I believe the scores a player gets vs Arizona are just as important as the grades they get vs. New England.    That's my understanding.   On the college level,  I believe it's the same.   The grades a Stanford player gets in a game vs. Notre Dame counts just the same as a game vs an opponent that might go 1-11.   All the same.   But should it be?    On the college level,  teams have a handful of top level games....  but they also play a number of cup cakes.   And the competition level is highly inferior.   So a good player on the college level can pad grades,  get great grades vs a highly inferior opponent.   I suspect that happens a lot.   Does PFF make any allowances for the difference in the quality of opponents?   If Player A plays in the SEC and Player B plays in a very weak conference (you choose) and they have the same grade at the end of the year --- should they?    Do they adjust for the difficulty of schedule?     I often wonder.     When I see players from smaller schools have high grades, I confess to wondering if that's an appropriate grade?   A lot of  what I've written is just Thinking Out Loud...    Perhaps someone will chime in with new information?     But they've got so many question marks for me on this list,  and do every year they'v made a college list,  that I'm left to scratch my head....          p.s. -- I think you alluded to an important point.     Grading a college player on PRODUCTION vs PROJECTION.      What you HAVE done vs. what you MIGHT do.     That's a very difficult aspect and I suspect is often the difference between a good choice and a bust....  
    • Ask yourself if Funchess had a market before CB & Staff came calling?  Labeled a bust due to an incompetent QB and/or system, value is in the toilet!  Said player is set to be eaten alive and has no leg to stand on.
    • If the Colts see Dillard as their future LT then I wouldn't mind this pick at all. Either way, we lack quality depth at the tackle spot. If Costanzo or Smith goes down, I don't feel very optimistic about the backups that we currently have.
    • I’m saying WR has been addressed in FA and with last yrs draft.    WR don’t develop as quick as you might think these days.  Due to stupid college offenses.     Coaching is a real thing.   There is no sense drafting a player (Cain) amd then dismissing him after one yr without seeing what he is capable of   Let’s say we stay Status Quo and Luck amd crew have the same success as last yr.   BUT we have a better D     We advance farther.  Even SB farther.     I get it you are an offensive guy. And want a WR.    Defense wins in this league.   Running the call wins in this league.     When was was the last team with a big time WR won the SB?      Because the Pats and Eagles didn’t have one   Pats win by controlling  the trenches.  Not with high powered WRs
