I would agree that any atempt to do anything with Lloyd that didn't meet with his aproval would only serve to further deflate his oversized ego.
This team will do and draft what they believe will provide the best marketing opportunity. If it happens to work out football-wise all the better, if not at least they made a big splash in the media during the offseason.

Re: Maske/JLC: Gibbs Hints Redskins Might Trade Up

I think the most important tidbit from the article, is that the Redskins are considering a lot of different trades, but the Briggs trade is the only one that has been widely reported. That makes sense - teams will explore their options before deciding which option is the best. It just so happens that only some of the options make the news - making fans think that a proposed trade designed to feel out a team's options are the in fact finalized negotiations.

The rumors make the offseason interesting.

Without a doubt no one has any clue what the hell we are doing and at this point it has to be by design.
Good post. The team clearly doesn't want anyone to have a clear idea what we're going to do on draft day.

I'm sure they have formulated a draft plan and have picked out players they are targeting at this point. But they don't want anyone figuring anything out.

That's the unholy truth associated with having a marketing executive for an owner. Instant dollar signs have a tendency to cloud his longterm view.

When you go 5-11 there is PLENTY of blame to go around. Not just on defense but on offense too. We hopefully solved the problem at QB, LB and DB's. Yes we need DE, DT but do any of you think that maybe alot of the players that are on the board are not that good?

I'll use this comparison one more time. Texans drafted for need and took Mario freaking Williams who didn't do shit. I bet if the Texans had a chance to do it all over again they would take Bush cause he was the best player on in the 06 draft.

We drafted for need a few years ago when Smoot left and took Carlos R. How in the hell did our scouting dept. grade Carlos higher than Merriman or D. Ware?

Calvin J. is simply put a freak. He's going to make any offense better the minute he walks on the field. He's going to do things that will NEVER EVER show up in the stat sheet. Can any of you imagine the PI's this guy will draw? Plus defenses are going to have to slide coverages to his side of the field which could open up all kinds of room for Santana and Cooley. Plus saftey's will never come near the LOS like they did last year when Brunell was QB. Opens up the running game so that helps Portis and Betts.

I hope we package Lloyd and move up and take this guy!!!!!!!
Here's the problem I have with this. We just spend big bucks and picks last year to get Randle-El and Lloyd; two relatively young receivers who have shown they can play in this league. Furthermore, we have Moss and Cooley (who I'll count as a WR for these purposes).

Granted, neither Lloyd nor El put up stellar numbers but a.) we were dealing with a new offense that everyone admits takes a year to learn and b.) Jason Campbell was for all intents and purposes a rookie when he played in the back half of the season.

CJ is great, no question about that. But why do we want to just give up on our current receivers-especially two guys we just spent big on just last year-after only one season in a new offense with a young quarterback. Why not let them grow together?

If you want to tear that unit up then fine, but it's hard to listen then when you turn right around and talk about how we have no patience as a front office, and we need to develop our players and so forth. (and when I say "you" I'm addressing the universal "you")

Re: Maske/JLC: Gibbs Hints Redskins Might Trade Up

Agreed SS. No one is saying that CJ isn't going to be a great player. I think we'd all love to have him, but not at the expense of the defense (which is clearly the less talented and weaker unit). I suppose if you want something sexy, go pick CJ, but there's a point of diminishing returns - we have enough guys on offense.

Call me crazy, but I'd like to improve upon the 31st ranked defense.

I heard that if Snyder goes after the salad in round 1, Vinny will toss it for him.

Those are all the other "Can't miss" guys in the draft. Do you want any of them. Other than the ones I highlighted, none of these guys made the impact that people think the #1 pick should. So why should we spend the #1 pick and trade up to get that pick for the "cant miss" guy instead of filling needs!?!?

Obviously the jury is still out on a few people. But Mike Williams of Detroit was a "Cant Miss" guy a couple years ago, and he was inactive most of the season.

*I bolded the guys who have "Panned out" for the most part, and even a couple of those are a stretch

And don't forget about sending Betts or Portis to the Jets for Vilma, I think that was the rumor that kicked everything off.

Re: Maske/JLC: Gibbs Hints Redskins Might Trade Up

gmanc, good post. no matter who says what, there is no such thing as a sure thing. and this is the first time i can ever remember the redskins playing the draft game the right way. letting all the other teams think that they want everyone. does anyone, other then the skins front office, have a clue to who they really want?

Apparently a deal was reported on the John Thompson show that the deal for Briggs is done.
