Brian Mitchell
 
During the local Comcat pregame show before the Panthers game, Brian Mitchell was a guest and was praising the move Snyder made in hiring Gibbs back. He also said (shockingly) that if he made the HoF, he would go in as a Redskin. He even said that even though he left on bad terms in '90, that in retrospect, he was always a Redskin at heart.

Now after reading [URL=http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/articles/A4863-2004Aug16.html]this article in the Post[/URL], I see he's still out of work after being cut by the Giants last February. Gibbs drafted him, Mitchell loves Gibbs, and it's looking more and more like his old #30 will be available again soon (poor Iffy).

Do you thnk he's coming back? It sure as hell wouldn't shock me.

I don't. We have one of the best return men in the game, Mitchell has lost a step. If they bring him in, bring him in for FO duty.

HoF? You're kidding me?

SmootSmack 08-16-2004 10:11 PM

Why not? Only Payton and Rice have more total career yards.

EEich 08-16-2004 10:16 PM

i don't think so... I never thought of him as dominating.
By the way... he left after the '99 season. The Redskins drafted him in '90.

i think rice is behind mitchell by 213 yards...

The Skins should sign him so he can officially retire as a Redskin.

He should have never left, another classic move by Danny boy.

Rice is in first im pretty sure, but Mitchell is definitly a head of payton, has been for years I think.

I dont see us getting mitchell.

I agree. If you guy's remember Mitchell was slowing down so much when we cut him, all he could do was score the only T.D we had on a kick return in our last playoff game vs Tampa!
I was really bummed out when we cut him! :mad: Bad move by Danny boy! Brain Mitchell should definitely retire as a REDSKIN!!

LOL.. you're right. I was thinking he left before the 2000 (not 1990) season. I never was much of a proof-reader!

mitchell wasnt resigned because he wanted a hefty salary, which we didnt want to pay. he had to go.

MTK 08-17-2004 12:08 AM

so instead we gave his money to Deion

who here wouldn't take B Mitch over Deion??

Daseal 08-17-2004 12:29 AM

Snyder was young and learning. He thought the big name would attract people, and I guess thought he had a lot more than that left!
