Seriously, if we're gonna settle for a guy w/ durability and injury concerns i.e. Cushing, Orekpo, then just bring Marcus back for a cheap deal and maybe swap he and Rocky.

.. on that note I don't understand why Marcus was kept at SLB the last couple years. It really seems like the SLB gets stuck in coverage far more than WLB therefor Rocky would have always made more sense @ strong side and Marcus and weak side. Like Lavar was never great in coverage and played WLB... i would want to have seen Marcus in the same scenario to sort of hide his downside.
I think Rocky should play the strong side as well, and draft Freeman in the 3rd who should be able to instantly step in as the WLB. Take an OL at #13.

We are of like mind sir... except that I still have a soft spot for Marcus

When they cut him do you think the FO had any intention of bringing him back for less and would he even be interested?

... he's not rated very high as a FA OLB so it's unlikely he'd get a big(ger) contract elsewhere, just been curious whether this is even a possibility.

I think Marcus is great, I was a big proponent of getting him here back in 2004...but I think his days as a Redskin are done

Re: Draft Thoughts - The Post-Haynesworth Edition

Well, we better beef up the OL, Giants just signed Canty.

Saw that and agreed. I think the common sense approach is definitely leaning toward OT w/ our first pick and probably @ 13 (no trade-down) because Monroe, Oher, and the Smith's look like they will def be gone by 20. This is a bit of a shame that there isn't enough starting caliber RTs to spread into the 2nd round because Rey Maluauga may actually be available at 20 because of the combine/injury/40 time

Re: Draft Thoughts - The Post-Haynesworth Edition

Wait... i just figured it out. We could package Golston or Monty w/ ARL and our last pick of the draft for Detroit's 20th overall pick, then we get a top OT and Rey. Man this FO thing is really fun once you get the hang of it...

This is exactly what ive been thinking we should do. We must take a tackle at 13 because we need someone who can potentially slide to LT in 2010. Its highly unlikely that we could trade down and still get a guy with the potential to do that. This is an extremely deep draft at LB, so someone like Freeman from Ohio state, Ivy from WVU, or perhaps even Zack Follett from Cal could come in right away.

I strongly think we should try to resign Washington though. The cap credit we get from signing someone with his NFL experience should make him very affordable, and not make it necessary to start a 3rd Rd LB right away.

I personally think we may be better off moving Taylor to LB, though. If we did that, we wouldnt necessarily need to bring Washington back and we could resign Daniels and have him start at DE. Like washington, he can be had extremely cheap. We could also draft a DE in the third round. If Brandon Graham from Michigan falls to us there, he would be a steal. We have to remember, now that Haynesworth and Griffin are our DTs, itll make any DEs we put in there look ALOT better. Having Taylor on the roster gives us alot of flexibility in deciding whether to draft a DE or LB in the 3rd.

Re: Draft Thoughts - The Post-Haynesworth Edition

Why am I the only one wondering whether Carter could be successful At LDE? Is the verdict already in or something... Carter is a bit stouter than Taylor and for some reason Blache thought Taylor could play LDE. I'm just saying that a rotation at LDE between Daniels or Evans and Carter would let us keep Taylor at his pro-bowl position RDE.

... btw Carter is 6-4 and 252 (thought he was heavier at an earlier point but oh well) and Taylor is 6-5 and 244 (but I heard he drops closer to 240 during the season). Carter could put on a few more pounds too if he were to switch to LDE.

Yeah I think mentioned a while back that they were successful with Andre Carter at LDE against the Vikings back in 2007...but that's against a Vikings team that was no real threat in the passing game. But I would probably put him there and Taylor at RDE (unless Taylor plays the will)

Good memory SS. I thought the concern w/ AC @ LDE might be against the run?

I think Taylor is going to play a lot of LB and DE, you're right about the flexibility he gives us.

You have a right to your opinion, but I disagree. Most experts say he can start in his first year. I think they probably know more than either one of us so I'll go with that.

I live in the SF Bay area and have seen him play some pretty good pac-10 teams (USC, Oregon, Oregon State) I have also seen Unger, all I can tell you is Mack has held his own and has looked better than Unger. Do you Javhid Best RB for Cal? Guess who led the Pac-10 in rushing with 1580 yards and 15 TD's. Most of his runs were up the middle. Who was blocking? Mack. Enough said.
