i hardly ever post here but check it out everyday. the point of a thread is to see different opinions and try to see all sides. that said, you porterhouse are an ignorant douchebag. i got into a heated debate with someone a while ago and said some stuff that was unnecesary and got a polite message from smootsmack saying to please refrain. that's it. like i said, i don't hardly post but check it out everyday and see the same people everyday. same opinion or not. i do hope you get banned though.

Re: Should the Redskins consider LSU Safety Laron Landry with the 6th overall pick

Yeah, it would be nice to have another top end safety, but, I may be a puppet here, I think that a DT or DE would be best for our D. Before everyone starts calling me "Pinocchio" hear me out. I look at the Pittsburgh Steelers D. I mean for the longest time there secondary sucked. Thier corners got beat like they stole something. But thier D was always in the top 10. That is because they had a very good front 7 that could rush the QB. IMO, you do not need to have top secondary players if your front 7 keeps the QB on his back or on the run.

So I believe that by drafting a stud DT or DE that will indirectly help out secondary...

I agree. We have a physical enough secondary that if they don't have to run around for 8-10 seconds during every pass play because there isn't any pocket pressure they should be pretty good.

I don't post often either. I like to log on and read what many of these knowledgable skins' opinions. But when 13 yr old, I mean 31?? yr old, punks decide to display how trashy they can be I almost get too fed up to read further. If I lived anywhere close to Lancaster, I'd ask you for your address PORTERHOUSE. I'd take you up on your offer. Seriously, you're 31 ? lol

Very similiar with Jacksonville's D as well. They have an outstanding front 7 which makes their corners look decent. When the corner leaves and plays for a team with a terrible D-line, his sub-par play becomes spotlighted.

On the other hand, secondary and D-line compliment each other. If the secondary is truly a shut down unit then the QB has to go through more reads to find the open man. Which means more time for the "sack masters" to get to him. If the sack masters can get to the QB faster then the secondary doesn't have to cover as long.

It's very similiar to peanut butter and jelly. Both can be okay individually but together they form the perfect combination.

That would put us in the 8th spot, where we could still get one of the elite D-lineman in the draft....


I think this post got lost in the mix, but I like the thought here... the only problem I see is that the Vikings dont seem to be taking any interest in him and we certainly don't need him, so the Falcons should probably be content not trading up to get him...

They just lost kearny, so I don't think they would be against taking a d-lineman if they gamble and lose, and since their secondary is not exactly the weakness on that team... I see them addressing their front 7, or even an offensive player in their draft if landry is gone. I just think if he's there at 6, he'll probably be there at 8...

Re: Should the Redskins consider LSU Safety Laron Landry with the 6th overall pick

i had a dream last night that i had to make the draft choice out of nowhere, and for some reason the first 5 picks were defensive ends, and i took landry...maybe its a sign

Re: Should the Redskins consider LSU Safety Laron Landry with the 6th overall pick

Let me expand on the reason why I like the idea of Landry. FS with his skills don't come around every year, especially when your in a postion to draft them. If we draft him, IMO we would be set in the secondary for the next ten years. We could have average corners, which to me are a dime a dozen like decent RB's, and always expect plays to be made by our defensive secondary. It is also a "safer" pick because you can almost garauntee that Landry is going to be a stud. I don't know if the same can be said for any of the DL prospects. It would be an unorthodox set up, I mean, who has two probowl safties? But I honestly think it would work. Landry is the ballhawking FS and Taylor can MASH people all day long, and still give you coverage when you need it. Now, if we go for it and we completely blow this year, next year we'll be in position to go after DL early in the first and second rounds of the draft, as well as look at free agents. Do you really think that taking a DL would make or break this season? I like our chances now and in the future on D with Landry and Taylor back there. DL can and will be addressed. You don't HAVE TO take one in this years first round.

On top of all that it would just be fun to see how a Defense employed two safties of that caliber. I imagine it would give opposing teams fits, especially a little further down the road once we beef up our pass rush. It doesn't all have to be done in one offseason. Can you imagine those two back there once the front seven catches up and generates and NFL pass rush?

Well there's still the slighty outside the box thinking of moving Springs to safety.

Or we could go really crazy and move LeMar Marshall back to his college position of safety

Seriously though, is there any team we can trade down with that would give us picks and a veteran safety?

Re: Should the Redskins consider LSU Safety Laron Landry with the 6th overall pick

i think we only move springs to safety if we bring in a top corner. hes the only #1 corner we have. rogers and smoot would be ok, but who would be the nickel? the ade? stoutmire?
