The Redskins had NO TALENT when shanahan took over
 
[url=http://www.csnwashington.com/football-washington-redskins/redskins-talk/Ex-Redskins-not-thriving-elsewhere?blockID=726418&feedID=6355]Ex-Redskins not thriving elsewhere[/url]

[QUOTE][B][U]Ex-Redskins not thriving elsewhere[/U][/B]

Many Redskins fans live in fear of their team letting go of a player and having him go on to play well for another team. Meanwhile, their team struggles to replace the player they let walk.

This not an irrational fear. The Redskins’ trash has turned into another team’s treasure on a regular basis. In the past decade we’ve seen the likes of Antonio Pierce, Ryan Clark, and Stephen Davis make the Redskins look bad by playing well on Super Bowl teams after being shown the door in Ashburn.

But check out this nugget from Dan Graziano of ESPN. “Since [Mike] Shanahan took over before the 2010 season, the Redskins have cut 150 players, and only one of those players -- San Francisco's Carlos Rogers -- is currently starting for another team.”

[/QUOTE]

The article goes on to point out Graziano mispoke with that specific claim, but was right on the bigger point. It gives us more reason to temper expectations with Shanahan.

And in other obvious observations Rich Tandler will be speaking about the sky being blue, grass is green and paint tends to dry slowly.

That's a weird article. It starts with Rogers as the only guy, then mentions Rocky and Carter. Carter is a definite starter on any team. Rocky will probably start again but I'm happy he's gone. And why don't guys like Gaffney and Stallworth count?

The title of this thread seems to be hyperbole which goes beyond the specific claims of the article.

CRed, here's some non-media hyperbole.

I guess because guys like Gaffney or Stallworth were not originally drafted by the Redskins? Andre Carter isn't an original Redskin, but we'll see how Rocky does in years to come. Carter is gone only because he didn't really fit the 3-4 when the Redskins switched, not because he was a bad player. Although I guess it could be argued that great players can adapted. But anyways, I'm not personally worried about how well someone's career is after they leave Washington. I'm just worried about our current players' production and quality of play.

Carter isn't a starter in any 3-4 defense. Rocky start again? Only if a team is decimated with injuries.

Didn't we let go Pierce and Stephen Davis because they wanted too much money. I know that's why we let go of Pierce but I cannot remember just why we let go of SD. So its not like we let them go and after seeing them thrive we realized we made a mistake.

I wouldn't go as far as saying there was NO TALENT, but alot of guys we had starting when Shanahan arrived could not start elsewhere, probably much less make an NFL squad. I can think of a few guys offhand, others can help me add to this list:

QB Jason Campbell: a redskins bust, Campbell was sent to the Raiders, where he was discarded in favor of then-retired QB Carson Palmer. Cut from the raiders, and now is a backup working on a one year deal in Chicago.

RB Clinton Portis: Is now retired, after 3 straight injury plagued seasons. Even when Shanahan arrived, he was totally wore out and would have not made it anywhere else.

WR Joey Galloway: It's sad when a 41 year old guy beat out a young player. Is now retired.

OL Mike Williams: Overcame life threatening obesity to return to football, only to be out of football again from a serious heart condition. (no joke there his return was inspiring even though it was brief).

Albert Haynesworth: Enough Said........

I thought he could have potentially died due to some rare heart condition that finally ended his career, but anyway I really have no idea.

If JC didn't get injured, the trade for Palmer wouldn't have happened. The Raiders didn't cut him either he was a free agent.
