Redskins should do NOTHING
 
Here are the offseason keys to the redskins success next season:

1. Do absolutely nothing in free agency (ONLY Depth Signings)
2. Keep and do not trade a sinlge draft pick. Have a complete draft!
3. The development of Jason Campbell
4. Develop new conditioning program because whatever we have now sucks.
5. The development of Jason Campbell

Our entire season and the immediate future rests upon our ability to resist jumping into the free agent market and keeping all of our draft picks. Most important to this season and many more to come is not a WR, DE, CB, S, DT, or the name of our coach. Wake up people; it is Jason Campbell. We can keep the exact same roster we have now and if Jason Campbell puts all his talents together then you are looking at the next "big thing." He is the key to our future. He should be picking Zorn's brains this off-season and learning whatever he can. With Campbell's mobility, arm strength, and pocket presence...he has all the tools to be one of the most dangerous players in the game.

I can stand behind your suggestions... The current free agents are very overpriced (maybe helped by our not so distant spending frenzy) and the new choaches need to put there stamp on the type of players they will tie thier future too.

JC is definitely the key, i just hope they will use is mobility something the great Joe Gibbs and Al Saunders never wanted to use pocket passer, if he has legs let him use them. We should keep all our picks as long as we don't use the 1st on a WR or CB no WR can step in and be an immediate help & we need to pick something other than secondary help for a change DL help would be nice.

3 weeks from now, we should be able to jump into the market without having to spend, spend, spend. We could grab LB depth, as well as a CB, S or WR, without having to pay too much.

I absolutely agree with your post. We need to get younger anyway. I wouldn't even be opposed to trading our #21 pick for multiple 2nd round picks. We never seem to trade for picks anymore, maybe we should start!
All in all though, great post.

That seems too painfully simple.

While I agree we shouldn't just toss our draft picks around like we did in the past, many of our players are getting up there in age and we could use some young experienced talent. We'd be stupid to pass up a young player who isn't asking for an insane contract (if there are still any out there) and just go for depth. While the draft is a way to bring in talent, unless they are a high profile pick, I don't see very many of them getting lots of playing time this year (unless there is an injury, trade, etc). Just like we got lucky to have Doughty backing us up, and he had at least a year of ST play and getting to know the defensive playbook. Just throwing a 21 year old draft pick, fresh out of college back there probably would have spelled disaster.

Depth signings - absolutely
Stagnant through FA? - Not quite.

Trading our 1st round picks for more picks excellent idea

There might not be anybody left to sign in 3 weeks. I think just waiting out the first few days says enough about not wanting to overspend.

WE do have some spots that are getting old. We gotta bring in some young bucks.

Here's my main concern.

While it's refreshing and seemingly intelligent to sit back and watch people spend huge amounts of cash on free agent signings, we're also sitting here watching the rest of the entire LEAGUE get a lot better. Most of the teams who are losing players were the "have nots" anyway and it's not like we'd have to worry about them.

It's the teams like the Eagles and the Saints improving that worries me. Who knows where Javon Walker or Randy Moss end up (maybe Dallas)? This is going to put a HUGE amount of emphasis on the draft AND on making damn sure we are VERY, VERY thorough in the spend-thrift signings we DO make this year.

Re: Redskins should do NOTHING
 
Speaking of WRs though, I REALLY think we should consider signing Caldwell to a deal in the three to four year range. He was clutch last year and aside from that game that EVERYONE seems to remember for the Patriots, has been a pretty good player. Not that he's a cure-all, but GREAT depth that's for sure.

I really like Caldwell, I hope he stays

As much as it is blasphemy to talk bad about Joe Gibbs, I think coach Joe held back young QBs. We all know how much he liked veterans QB (hence Brunell), and I think his play calling was very conservative when JC was at the helm. When Todd Collins took over, it seems that the reins were released and the team had a more aggressive approach.

I wholeheartedly agree that the developtment of JC is very important, however I do think that the team should address in giving JC another target in the passing game. And that could very well be Hackett. However, I also think that JC will have a coach that has confidence on him and will give him free reign.
