Gotta play for pride. I can't see Gibbs letting these guys give up on the season

What I really think Gibbs will try to do with the rest of the season is identify the 15 or so players that he will keep as a "core" while cutting the rest of the players loose. Essentially the rest of the season will be an on the job try-out.

hate to say it, but with a #3 pick we could probably still get mike williams... and spend the remaining time trying out jacobs, mccants, etc...

I'd love to try and win too though... I always like to see the skins win, which has really made this year hard.

Play for a high draft pick, but it's not like they have a choice. If it was that simple, why couldn't they have played for pride from the beginning and win more games?

During locker room interviews after each loss, players continue to refer to "keeping it close" and "staying with an opponent", -- it appears that's as much as they're capable of.

Even if they finished 8-8 that usually equals a top 20 or even top 15 pick.

I don't see that happening though, I see them finishing 6-10 at best.

I doubt we'd get Mike Williams. He'll be the highest rated WR in the draft, and depending on how everybody finishes, Miami and San Fransisco could be ahead of us in the draft order. And both of those teams need wide receivers.

Start rooting for the Phins and Niners.

I usually turn my attention to the draft pick at this point, but with Gibbs as coach i just can't bring myself to do that. When Gibbs loses it hurts me more than they did when Marty or Spurrier lost. I just can't shift into draft pick mode. I hope they can win some of these last 5 so that they have some optimism heading into next year. The only game left on the schedule that looks unwinnable to me is Philly. Not that they will win the other 4, but I just can't turn my back with Gibbs as coach.

I agree with you That Guy. Shoot even if we can't get Mike Williams, we should still go after a WR. Then we can get a C, DE, and maybe another O-line man..

niners have money problems and an owner with TIGHT pockets though... and miami has boston, chambers, booker, and mcmicheal... they need a QB more than another WR... this draft isn't looking nearly as good as last year's though, so williams is probably going to be the best player in the draft, meaning we gotta hope miami and the niners go for positions of need (other than WR)...

That's probably what Gibbs has started doing since he put Ramsey in at quarterback, but I think he also tries to keep that objective in line with the overall and ultimate goal of winning every game. I think he's playing Ramsey now because he feels Ramsey gives the team a better opportunity to win, and I think we've seen more opportunities for McCants and Jacobs and Cooley because he feels those guys are simply performing as well or better than their teammates, and they also give the team a chance to win.

Gibbs will never knowingly tank games for the sake of better draft picks or "looking to next year". But he will play the best guys that give the team the best chance to win, and he will get what he can for the guys that don't fit that bill. I think we'll see some trades this offseason, and I think guys like McCants, Jacobs and Cooley could become a part of that long-term core of players that Gibbs will lean on in the future, as long as they perform well in these last games of the season.

This is definitely try-out time for everybody on the roster, but looking for Redskins players means looking for winners, and winning will always be goal number one with Joe Gibbs, no matter what the record or the draft stakes.

goota try and win them all and try to build something positive for next year

Gmanc711 11-29-2004 11:16 AM

A postive ending to this season will do much more for us than a top 3 pick. We need confidence going into next year, not one extra star player.

That Guy 11-29-2004 11:25 AM

if we could meet all possible needs right now we'd need a WR, C, DE, TE (blocking), OG, DE, DT, SS in roughly that order...

That Guy 11-29-2004 11:26 AM

maybe try out rock as a short yardage guy? he filled that role pretty well last year...
