It's more of a big picture thing. Vinny wouldn't have had the smarts to deal and maneuver like Allen and Shanahan have this offseason and we would likely be looking at a completely different scenario surrounding the team. By the way we already know that Vinny wouldn't have drafted Berry.

I'm 100% sure that if Vinny was the GM he would have drafted Clausen which is fine. However given Vinny's reputation around the league it's likely he wouldn't have been able to attract a post-Zorn coaching staff capable of developing him.

I mean isn't that a big reason why Snyder had Vinny "resign," because he started to see that no reputable coach wanted to work for the Redskins with Vinny picking and backstabbing his way around town?

The way Shanahan and Allen have run this team from top to bottom, from the workouts to acquiring players has been nothing short of spectacular. With that said only way to get us on board with the possible Berry pick is to find a way to still bring in a quality tackle weather it be Jamaal Brown or some other equivalent.

So yes when you isolate the scenario of the Vinny picking Berry then you would probably see people grabbing pitchforks opposed to Allen and Shanahan where people at this point are much more willing to go along with the teams braintrust. Of course I must concede that a good part of that is goodwill from being the ones that made Snyder comfortable enough to go with someone else besides Vinny.

I still think they're a contender for Clausen where they are, though they deny it.
Maybe we could get a #2 and then...

Nothing new

On another note, now I'm hearing Bulaga (which definitely means a trade down). This stuff is impossible to keep up with

Re: Draft News for the Warpath

My sources tell me that the Redskins are now looking to trade down and take Bulaga.

I see us trading down with the Browns and picking up williams or bulaga. Browns will take Berry.

Re: Draft News for the Warpath

good grief. this is all over the place. are the skins just putting out a ton of misinformation or do plans keep changing because we, and other teams, are in the process of attempting to make so many moves?

smoot, since you seem to be hearing alot of varied reports, id be interested in knowing your gut feeling - could you give us a percentage breakdown for each option?

-The Skins trade UP for Bradford
-The Skins stay at 4 and select an OT
-The Skins stay at 4 and select a position other than OT
-The Skins trade down a few picks
-The skins trade down 10 or more spots

On another note, what redskins players (if any) do you think will get moved tonight?

well Bulaga would follow the Shanny drafting a player that never visited trend.

Re: Draft News for the Warpath

A buddy of mine text me that the Vikings are in "hot pursuit" on Haynesworth, reportedly for their 30th overall pick. You hear anything about that SS?

EDIT: nevermind

Re: Draft News for the Warpath

What happens at 8:10pm, when we select Russell Okung after all the build-up and misinformation?
Okung has been at the top of the board since January.
We have nothing to look forward to until saturday afternoon.
