Re: Russell to the skins?

1) having russell, a top prospect, come in for a workout is standard practice when you have a pick that high at #6, and it is SMART LONG TERM planning. We never know if JC will be around in a few years & this guy might be a free agent. At that time our staff will have at least had some personal 1 on 1 time w/him.

2) Everybody tries to throw out some smokescreens before the draft. I think now agents are getting into the game too. As someone noted earlier, there was a rumor in 05 that we would sign S. Rolle to a 15mil bonus. Agents like the Skins, cause even if we don't want their player they can use Snyder's name to try & drive up the price. I think this is compounded by our f. office not being very good at networking in the nfl & Snyder not being very open to outsiders (based on reports).

3) Who knows how far his stock might fall between now & April 21 or how teams will change their approach. He might actually be there at #6. We could draft him & trade him a la Eli w/SD.

4) JC is the man & Gibbs brought him in. I think JC will be a better qb than Russell. So the guy's an athletic freak, that can only get you so far. I can't see Gibbs & co. doing anything to affect JC's confidence. We need a young qb, but rounds 4 to 7 will be the time to look for one.

Re: Russell to the skins?

I can see Snyder doing this based on his love for Jeff George back in the day... But I don't see Gibbs letting this happen for the health of the team. We are so close in my eyes why jepordise that for one guy?

Oakland is probaly either trading the first pick which means CJ will go first and Quinn will go to the lions (causing russell to probaly slip to us) or there gonna take Quinn(and russell could still slip to us). It's just a smoke screen and is actually pretty brilliant because the FO is adding value to a player who otherwise would have none.
well put. I tried to say as much in my earlier post. If he falls to #6 there will likely be several teams willing to offer us multiple players, picks and cheerleaders!

Re: Russell to the skins?

That was some funny stuff right there. But the funniest thing is that on some other teams MB there are going to be threads dedicated to this very blog. Their fans will read it and treat it as if it were gospel and believe it to be true just because people tell them it is, much like "The Magic Bullet Theory" which I got in so much trouble in Elementary School for when they taught me about that. This is one of the stupidest lies I have ever seen written in a while. Now if they said the Skins were looking to move up to get Calvin Johnson then I'd probably go along with that one. But seriously, I don't think that the Skins' F.O. is THAT stupid.

Re: Russell to the skins?

NO NO NO .... I hate this move don't even think about it F.O. We have a QB. BAD MOVE. We need Dline help. We dont need a QB. I HATE THIS. I hope the story is B.S. or that this is sdome kind of postering move to get us some draft day trades.

Your privelege of rooting for the same team as me has been revoked until further notice.

Thank you.

Oh Porterhouse, look at the wax build up on these shoes! I want that wax stripped off there, then I want them creamed and buffed with a fine chamois, and I want them now. Chop chop.

Re: Russell to the skins?

This makes more sense of it:

ESPN.com - NFL/DRAFT07 - NFL teams flock to LSU to watch Russell

So what if Vinny was there? what else does he have to do?

i hope they don't turn their backs on Jason Campbell. He has all the tools to be a winner and this would set this organization back another year

Re: Russell to the skins?

Here's a thought--Vinny is simply a decoy this year. Gibbs has figured out that he can't pick em, and sends him places where he can do least harm.

It's all the places where Vinny ISN'T that should be of interest.
