Redskins' new faces mean competition for jobs will be intense
 
So by my count, since Mike Shanahan was hired as coach in January, the Redskins have added 33 players via draft, trade and free agency. Of those, 23 are veterans who spent last season with different NFL teams. That's a lot of a new faces and there are a couple of conclusions we can draw from their additions.

We just picked up Joey Galloway, too. That makes WR position very competitive.

The real challenge that now faces Shanahan & co. is to get all these different personalities from different environments to come together and play as a team. Competition at every position should enable this to happen sooner rather than later.

Galloway and Wade better be gone by the time the season starts. We need to give our young talent the chance to be great. I think the No. 2 reciever job is DT's to lose, and i hope MK can step up as well.

Competition is age old, no matter what sport or what era. If you want to be a successful sports franchise you gotta have that. It brings the most out of players and emphasizes players putting in 100% everytime and that's what MS wants and that's what our franchise needs every year.

Competition can only lead to a better program which in turn leads to a better football team.

Glad that Clinton is going to be pushed, though I'm not sure if he realizes that he will need to turn it up. Not sure he could... I mean, every time I read an interview transcript done with him, I wonder if he is trying harder to talk like an idiot or just getting dumber.

Maybe it doesn't effect his football, but it sure is irritating to have to listen to his "vocal stylings" as a fan. yo.

No brainer here. Shanny wants guys that can get the job done plain and simple and wants to push the young guys. THey sucked last season. Granted, JC was part of the problem, but our young guys were the crappiest bunch in the NFL in my opinion. Donovan was working with the hottest young WR tandem in the NFL last season. He isn't going to get that with this bunch. If Kelly and Thomas don't up the ante this season, Shanny is going to have to draft a WR in the first two rounds next season.

You keep pimping those Philly WR's, is this what you're in love with?

Jackson: 62-1156-9
Maclin: 56-773-4
Avant: 41-587-3

I can think of a bunch of more productive groups than that, nothing wrong with that group don't get me wrong, I just don't get all the love for them.

I swear. Sometimes to me it feels like the only two positions to get any love from fans are receivers and the people who cover them. Ironic considering that both receivers and corners are the least involved non-special team positions on the field. This is opposed to positions like Centers and Nose Tackles who are involved on every single play.

I was looking over Wades stats and his fumbles and passes dropped are HUGH! I couldn't believe it and it shows that he got worse and worse as his career has gone on. He is supposed to be our next return man... I don't know!
