Re: News from the Combine

no it isnt... if mcintosh is good he would have played over warrick holdman, just like taylor got his chance and lavar too ended up starting his rookie season. giving guys time to develope on defense is a myth. this isnt quarterback. oh and about those bad knees.....he never missed a game in his penn state carreer buddy. ripped his knee in half in that last game against florida state, made it back to start game 1 the folllowing year. bad knees!!! give me a break. the athletism comment is also dumbfounding to me because there is no way you watched penn state play the last two years if you make that comment. plus i want a football player not an athlete playing linebacker, poslz is twice the player mcintosh is on the football field...look at the production in college and compare them and then tell me why mcintosh couldnt crack the starting line up until game 14

If we don't fix the line then it does not matter who we bring in to play MLB.

I mean anyone who keeps Holdman on the field that long has no business coaching in the NFL. Everything I saw from McIntosh when he did play seemed like he has lots of potential.

I say if the Redskins pick at #6 and Anderson is gone they will go with Amobi Okoye. He will be the first DT taken. Branch has underachiever written all over him.
I don't have a problem with Okoye. It seems that he is still growing into his body. Why do you say this about Branch? He was a very productive player at Mich. Anderson only had one good year and was on no one's radar a year ago.

Re: News from the Combine

I am weary of another small DE but I liked what G. Adams had to say in this article:

washingtonpost.com

If they're worried about drafting a small DE, a trade down to get Carricker makes sense as he is likely to be around mid to late first rnd.

we can still get a quality linemen later in the draft. and having quality in the middle, the guy calling the shots, could help a ton. it seemed like guys were out of position all the time last year.

You actually believe the bullshit you scream about. The funny thing is when Rocky takes over next year and plays great you will probably be the first person with his pic in your avatar.

The problem is that you have watched Penn State play all year the last two years, so that makes you partial to Poz, hes a decent player, not great, and if we traded back and picked Poz over Pat Willis I would go insane. Can Poz run down Brian Westbrook or cover Jason Witten? Hes just not athletic enough. Lawrence Timmons is a better LB than Poz, I think all this is pointless anyways, because im pretty certain were going to pick Gaines Adams.

Re: News from the Combine

no more arguing, i hope rocky pans out...but he was an average college player and he hasnt proven anything to the coaches or anyone else that he can play better than average. plus all this can poslz guard this guy or that guy is rediculous because if i recall our best linebacker cant even do that. brian westbrook blew right by washington twice this year. i doubt rocky mcintosh can get the job done either, but my point giantssuck is that they dont need to cover those guys one on one to be a good LINEBACKER(you are talking about coverage ability like its corner) in the league.

Re: News from the Combine

if we draft adams it will be a terrible pick....we sucked up and signed carter last year and if we draft adams to play opposite of him....all i got to say is if you thought our run d stunk last year, if we draft adams teams will hand us our butts. we need anderson or trade back to get more picks for more needs.

Re: News from the Combine

if johnson does slip you've got to consider him at least... he's by far the safest pick in the draft. that said, i can't imagine tampa passing on him in any possible world. if he makes it that far, he'll be a buc.
