what gibbs should have said is "Man, ya know its tough being in my shoes. Then bring me in here to turn this team around, bring Jesus into the club house, and look what I go and do. We cant sack the QB to save our lives. But ya know, that might be becasue we leave the receivers so wide open without safety help on Archs side that they get the ball to them so darn quick. So you ask me, do I think any rookie could start for me? well hell yea. We're in talks with everyteam that has a first round pick. We are considering giving each team all 7 of our picks the a certain year. So the raiders would get all of our picks in 2007 for the 1st, Lions all our picks in 2008 for the 2nd, and so on. But we realized that wasnt possible, so we figured we would just give our picks for guys that we arent goign to start. What difference does it make if I draft a guy and dont play him, or if I trade the pick to Atlanta and dont play that player either? I think the draft is silly, no good Christian would try and pick human beings over another human being like it was an auction."

yea yea, i might have taken that to far, but its time to elave work and Im bored.

I'm still trying to figure out where this is coming from.
JLC also talked about it on his blog today on RedskinsInsider.
I clipped this (It's not the whole column):

"Was wondering what you guys thought of the idea posited by the Skins on Tuesday that there was probably no one in the draft who could earn a starting job on their roster out of training camp.
Have to say that while I am all for a bit of gamesmanship this time of year, and like we addressed yesterday, we fully understand that teams are going to make statements of varying degrees of legitimacy before the draft - and that's all well and good ... but this one immediately raised my eyebrows..."

Also in this press conference Dan S. mentioned that Brandon Lloyd is working out real hard in Arizona and he was in the best shpae of his life. He said that he was proud of LLoyd.

It doesn't say they absolutely WON'T start, but it's not a ringing endorsement either. Maybe he's just using that language so no draft pick will get the idea that they won't have to bust their tail to earn a starting spot. I guess I was a little off. But it's not secret Gibbs doesn't like to start rookies.
Regardless, I wouldn't read too deep in to what he said.

Unfortunately the offseason doldrums have left me with nothing better to do than dissect every little peep out of the Redskins. Saturday is so close....

Gibbs usually says a lot of things to throw the media in different directions. He says those things so he wont be held accountable later for a sudden change that he might have not mentioned before. Dont read into what he says too much.

Danny is about as honest and trustworthy as the Devil.....

In place of big FA signings and false hope in that regards it has been substituted for useless jargon about the most useless current player. If Archulleta was still here we would here more about how he trains lifting broken cars and his unusual work out regimine. So really what we are hearing is simply a business ploy to retain our interest, keeping potential money in the org. Probably b/c he got a deal on B.Lloyd jerseys and needs to flip them before we dump him next year. Trust me this is a business and he runs it better than any franchise in the world. Every year is a new song and dance.

I don't like hearing a business man talk about the players. Has Danny ever earned faith. Why should we care if he made the owner proud.

Can we impeach our owner?? Doesn't 6 flags need his dedication??

Re: AP "Gibbs doubts any draftee could start"

We all know what he meant to say. It took almost the whole year for the Offense to understand, click, and buy into Saunders 500 page play book. Do you think some rookie will be able to digest it quicker and be an impact player come day one. maybe some plays will be given to a rookie but they will not be a huge impact. How about Defense then....We all know (and love)GW...he never puts a rookie in for atleast half the season.
