I'm not throughly convinced the team was wrong about letting Clark depart. He had a good year for us in 05, but he was just one part of an overall pretty good defense. I have never felt we were wrong for not keeping him, because had they really wanted too, they would have. The way our defense played this year, I don't know that he would have made that much of a difference. He did loose his starting job with the Steelers, so I'm more concerned with the production of a player over a period of time, as opposed to one fairly good year.

I agree. Just because giving Archuleta a big contract was a huge mistake, does not mean that letting Clark walk was also a mistake.

Also, I think the smart money would be on Archuleta rebounding, not Clark.

Re: Drafting a safety.

if you want to bet on rebounds, i'd take AA with another bad year.

Yeah, I think you're right. We lost in '06 because of the D-line. No penetration from Griff or the Samoan. No pass rush from Daniels or Carter. The line just got run over, plain and simple. Apart from pass coverage, Ryan Clark wouldn't have prevented us from getting trampled by opposing rushing attacks.

Re: Drafting a safety.

Brennan at #6?

That's totally ridiculous even for the Skins.

Re: Drafting a safety.

Heres a suggestion, why dont we see what we have in Reed Doughty, sometimes other teams develop there young guys. There is no way he could be worse than Arch, hell he could be the guy we have been looking for. I dont know what way this team will go in the draft, but unless we trade down there is no way we will pick a safety.

The Redskins have the sixth pick in the first round.

this bewildering information came from the honolulu advertiser (i was unable to post the actual link because my account is a noob...that is definatley retarded. Why can't I post the link admins?)

Why would the FO be looking at this guy?
if we use our first pick on a quarterback , i will be convinced our fo is on crack

He's really stepped it up on Special Teams enough that some of the coaches have taken notice especially after Gibb's gave his "we're going to see who wants to remain here" speech....he's also a hard hitter. . I'm personally rooting for him after reading the WP article about his kid. Hopefully he'll have a breakthrough in the offseason and he'll earn a spot...he's still a risk though...hard decision.

kinda doubt it. he's a bit slow for the NFL. he was taken mainly as a backup and special teamer.

You have to scroll down a bit to Jan. 18, 2007. It all sounds so odd though
