Re: Skins' Schedule Meeting with Russell

I wonder if they are just trying to make other teams as nuts as they are making us. I heard JA Adande say yesterday on ESPN that he went golfing with some "NFL front office types," and apparently the Raiders are leaning towards Calvin Johnson at this point. I suppose if that was true there would be a better chance of Russell falling to the 6th spot...

God I'm sick of all this. I can't believe the draft is still A MONTH AWAY!! ARGHHH. Hey, at least when the day does come it looks to be pretty eventful.

Its rumors and gives them stuff to talk about. If a front office type is running their mouth about a draft choice then its probably the last person they would draft or the front office type guy may be looking for a neww job. No team is going to show their hand and that is usually true for the 1st pick of the draft so they can keep options open. We have 30 more days of rumors.

Re: Skins' Schedule Meeting with Russell

Anyone else wish there was an information vacuum at Redskins Park so everytime Joe Gibbs drops a twosie it doesn't end up on ESPN?

That being said, if this is anything else but a ploy for trade fodder I am going to be sick. I can't take another month of this.

Re: Skins' Schedule Meeting with Russell

I still think we're trading up for the salad, sirloin, and creme brulee. In fact, my "sources" tell me its a done deal. The only holdup is whether they're going to go with House or Ranch dressing.

Don't rule out blue cheese... I heard they could be setting up a meeting with BC.

Re: Skins' Schedule Meeting with Russell

See here we go again !

DAMNIT !!!!

DAMNIT !!!!

EVERY YEAR !!!! WE HAVE A PERFECTLY GOOD BOTTLE OF ITALIAN ALREADY !!!!!!

I still think they should wait, and possibly trade down to talk to the Outback people about that exclusive Mustard Vinagrette they make because it's best for the whole meal. And when the hell did they start talking about the creme brulee ? I swear this team makes me sick !!!!!

Re: Skins' Schedule Meeting with Russell

I really like the way the Skins are playing this draft, assuming they make the smart choice on draft day (DLine or Calvin Johnson, should he fall...he won't) because I don't even know exactly what they're thinking any more. I would like to believe the rumors about moving up to get guys are false and that their interest in Russel is all just a smoke screen, but I'm gonna reserve my judgement till after the draft because I still don't quite trust this FO. We'll have to see on draft day, but I think they'll make the smart choice and, hopefully, go with Okoye at something like 8 or 10 and pick up another first day pick in the process. *crossing my fingers*

Re: Skins' Schedule Meeting with Russell

It is all bluff and nothing that has been said should even be paid attention to. Just about anything you hear is contradicted the next day, or another player is in the team's crosshairs in the following days little tidbit on the sports web pages. I just hope that Gibbs and the FO have a solid plan on not only who to take at #6, but in the later rounds as well. I would go all defensive in the draft, save maybe one offensive guard.

Re: Skins' Schedule Meeting with Russell

I said it in the first thread we had about Russell talking to the Skins that it's smart to talk to the guy now cause you never know what the situation will be in 4-5 years when his rookie deal is up. get a feel for him, that's all.

also, we have to make teams believe we'll actually draft this guy in case he falls, that way they'll ante up some picks for us.

Re: Skins' Schedule Meeting with Russell

They haven't made very many good draft decisions other than the Ricky Williams deal so anything is possible when it comes to the Redskins on draft day. We spend months predicting what we think they should do and everything seems good till draft day and they end up doing crazy things like last year. I used to really look forward to the draft but not anymore. They never have any picks and they usually trade next years #2 for this years #3 or something like that. It is very depressing to be a Redskins fan on draft day. If this Lance Briggs deal goes through it will be a major mistake that will haunt them for years. Please Gibbs/Snyder/Cerroto if you must trade the #6 pick, trade it for more picks so we have some building blocks for the future!!!

Re: Skins' Schedule Meeting with Russell

I can't recall a time in Redskin deraft history when there has been so much speculation, enough already. I agree with anyone who wishes the draft was tomorrow.

All in favor of moving the draft up a month, say "Aye".

Yeah, I hear you.
