As for 07-08, we suffered injuries ACROSS the board at CB. LB. OL, and Collins threw 2 interceptions that were returned for scores. It would be foolish to blame both loses on the Oline. In the playoffs, if you can not run and pass well you will lose.

Its great thatt u have a man-crush on B Albert and all, cuz I am the mayor of Jordy-ville, but why would u automatically assume a rookie can unseat a veteran like that. No jobs are given away in the league and especially with the Redskins ofensive line. I mean I dont even expect J Nelson to start if we get him. Eventually he CAN, but he will not receive a 1st round de facto starting position. I will say that he has thepotential to beat him in camp, but im not gonna assume he will start.

We need top tier talen at CB and DE. Period.

We can find WR and OLineman later on. If we were to take them in the first, I wouldn't be happy, but I wouldn't be protest either. Any pick can help. My philosophy is to address need int he first round, unless you have a top 15 pick/or somoen great falls to you like Randy Moss did when he came around.
Well I'm not going to argue about Gibbs' playcalling cause I didn't like it. But if you recall in 05 we had 55 year old Ray Brown playing guard and he got hurt. In comes Cory Raymer and all hell broke lose.

Yes Collins threw 2 picks but if you recall before that we couldn't sustain drives because of an inability to pick up 3rd/4th and shorts. Plus Collins was getting killed by Kerney, Pederson and co. Injuries were part of it cause we're mising Thomas and Jansen. But we couldn't over come it because of a lack of depth at the RG position. Fabini and Kendall are stop gaps. Remember the Giants game? Couldn't get any movement two plays in a row on the goaline. People can blame Betts all they want but Kendall just isn't the best option. We need a young road grader in there who is versitile. We need a guy like Raliegh Mackenzie.

I agree with the need for a DE. IMO I just think you still win games in the trenches and the NYG proved that in the SB. If we can get some guys that can rush the passer, open holes for CP and protect JC then we can take the next step.

Well, u r right about Raymer because I do remember that. However, like the playcalling there were several reason that we lost that game (including the droppped int for a TD by carlos rogers).

This year on 3rd and 4th and short, our playcalling was part of it too. Gibbs and AS playcalling were overly predictable and the the box was stacked because they knew we were going to run, and usually when the box is stacked with 8 men it doesnt matter how good your o-line is because there are only 5 of them.

The seahawks blitzed more to get pressure, than relying on there four man rush. The blitzing that they did do, focused on the gaps at or near PAtrick Kerney, who was wiping his @ss with Heyer(I think Jansen would have held that down much better), and that allowed him to get consistent pressure.

Regardless of how you look at it, the turnovers and the lack of matchup problems we had against there secondary really killed us. We couldn't run, our passing game was holistically inefficient, and those 2 picks hurt, bad!

As for Betts and the Giants game. All Ima say is PLAY CALLING and COACHING.

1) If/when you get down to the goal line, you have to be willing to mix it up. If I remember we ran either 3 of four times in a row, and two of those plays were the same play. We should have passed at least half of that time if we were gonna use all 4 downs.

2) If you are gonna go for it on the last play of the game, USE YOUR BEST PLAYER! Using 2nd string in a siutation like that is unacceptable. Plus, if you do go down you go down with your best talent so that no one, like I am doing now, will be able to bring that up as a reason why we lost. Even if you feel cool with Betts in there, POrtis should have gotten that last carry. I think his experience would have at least kep thim from trippin over someone's leg. After that who knows, maybe we go to the Superbowl with a diff playoff seed. Like the one the Giants had.

Overall, our O-Line play has not been an egregious flaw in our team's personnel, and to draft an OT/OG in the first would suggest that it is that flawed that we need toi use our first pick to patch it up. When in reality it would be a depth pick.

DE/CB/WR = 1st round wothry picks for us

Granted, this is the extreme case in which it pans out, the Skins should be able to grab a tall, system compatiable, receiver later in the draft, if it is so necessary.

I feel using our 1st pick on a WR would poorly start out our most significant draft in the past 5 years.
Agreed. Offensive line must be addressed first. We could pick up some WR like Marcus Monk in round 3(I heard his stock is rising).
