Oh well, star for star deal (oh year and the 2nd pick)....I'm still okay with this.
|Bozzy ||02-27-2004 08:25 PM |
Damnit. Oh well. Smoot's happy, he won't get thrown at as much now that he is the #1 DB.
|johnnyredskin63 ||02-27-2004 08:28 PM |
i would hate to be the guy that takes champ's"position"next year.he's gonna get thrown at 10 times a game,count on it.
|itvnetop ||02-27-2004 08:29 PM |
hey may get thrown at even more until he can prove he can shut down a number 1 WR.
|johnnyredskin63 ||02-27-2004 08:45 PM |
well if he can't stop number 1 he really be in deep number 2 wo'nt he? :D
|JWsleep ||02-27-2004 09:15 PM |
But if we have an actual pass rush, they won't have time to throw! Especially with Lavar on the weak side raising havoc.
Any details on the skins-portis negotiations?
|Sheriff Gonna Getcha ||02-27-2004 10:33 PM |
Well hold on a sec...looks like this Portis deal hasn't gone through yet.
In any event, I strongly believe that if we get Shawn Springs and a pass rush specialist like Kearse or Udeze, along with two new DTs, our defense will be much improved (if at a much greater cost than had we just kept Champ). That's not a very risky statement, but I make it because it seems as though everyone thinks that Champ WAS our defense. If Champ was our defense, it looks like its better that he left.

1 DT. Give Noble a chance to make a recovery.
|beg8878 ||02-28-2004 02:21 AM |
is Champ's agreement confirmed anywhere? I can't find it in any of the sources....

That's an excellent point, ramseyfan. If I remember correctly, last summer there were a lot of people saying that it doesn't matter if you have a Champ Bailey if you can't rush the passer. Obviously, that statement turned out to be true. The Redskins are taking a big chunk of change that they would've spent on Champ, and are instead spending it on areas that Joe Gibbs feels will improve this team quickly. One of those areas will certainly be the pass rush, and if guys like Kearse and Udeze become Redskins, Smoot will look like the second coming of (insert your all-time favorite shutdown corner here). Champ is a great corner, but he isn't the be-all, end-all of any defense. A pass rush is much more important.
|Gmanc711 ||02-28-2004 10:05 AM |
Exactly. Thats why I have been saying that htis trade is such a good thing and champ isnt *that* important. You dont need a awsome corner, you need a defensive pass rush, I mean obviously you cant get it on every play, so a corner is an important aspect. However, if your getting a decenet pass rush many of the plays, its gonna take osme pressure off the corner and they will play better
|Beemnseven ||02-28-2004 10:15 AM |
I'm not shedding any tears over Champ's departure. Like I've always said, if Champ was such a savior, where are all of the playoff victories and Championship rings?
Still, he will have to be replaced preferably by a veteran free agent, Winfield, Springs...
And while we keep hearing that a pass rush will offset the damage done by not having Champ on the field, I've heard nothing of any plans to start concentrating on the D-line. In fact, the WP has an article on the Front Office suddenly taking notice of Mike Williams entering the draft.
However, I will go about my business, and have absolutely no worries knowing that Joe Gibbs is in charge.
|Gmanc711 ||02-28-2004 10:27 AM |
I agree 100% beemsteven. Whatever Gibbs does is going to be fine, I mean our offense is already looking to be one of the best in the league, I hope he gets us a monster d too. Although I dont know why the FO would want Mike Williams. I mean I love the kid and his ability, but i'll spell it out for them S-E-A-N (space) T-A-Y-L-O-R.
|beg8878 ||02-28-2004 11:00 AM |
The FO is probably saying that so that any teams looking to take Williams is more apt to start looking to trade spots up to get him...just positioning that needs to be done, it is all BS games that are played before the draft to keep everyone guessing.....
