    Can the Redskins not handle success?

    The Washington Redskins front office couldn’t bring itself to offer quarterback Kirk Cousins a decent long term deal last year after he broke multiple franchise records and helped win the NFC East Division. General manager Scot McCloughan, team President Bruce Allen and owner Dan Snyder apparently wanted Cousins to prove that his record-setting 2015 season wasn’t a fluke even though it seemed clear he was starting material.

Sharpe: “So let me ask you a question, now. If Mr. Kraft has to choose between the two, Tom Brady or coach Belichick, what does he do?” Bayless: “If I’m Bob Kraft, that’s a laughable question to me, because I’m picking the quarterback. If it’s just two years from now, and Tom says

    Cheese curds, 2/23: Looking at Brett Hundley and Clay Mathews’ futures with the Packers

    With the Green Bay Packers generating little in the way of news and the NFL Scouting Combine still a week away, this part of the offseason tends to revolve around hypothetical roster transactions. As the Packers rarely commit to major moves in free agency, trades and draft selections dominate the Green Bay news cycle. That remains true in 2017, as the Packers could conceivably trade their prized young quarterback, Brett Hundley, should the right opportunity arise. Hundley represents just one of the Packers under the microscope this offseason, however. Earlier in his career, Aaron Rodgers suggested that he didn’t plan to extend his career into his late 30s or beyond. The two-time MVP has changed
