Who will the Redskins miss the most?
vote and discuss, who will the team miss the most in 2005?

Re: Who will the Redskins miss the most?
I think our linebacking core is still more than enough, and our wide reciever core didn't really get any worse from coles. So I think losing Smoot will have the biggest impact.

Re: Who will the Redskins miss the most?
I too think our linebacking core is going to be just fine without Perice. I think Greg Williams made Perice a great player, and can do the same putting someone else in his place. Thats not too say Perice wont be missed, because I'm sure he is going to have a great career in NY and I think he's a great player. So I have to say Smoot. I think its going to be much harder to plug another guy in at Cornerback than I do linebacker. So I'll say Smoot. Good Riddance to LC.

Re: Who will the Redskins miss the most?
I think it's tough to say. In Pierce we're losing a very smart MLB who was basically the QB of the defense, that role will need to be taken on by someone else.

In Smoot we're losing a very good cover corner who played hurt and was a fan favorite.

In Coles... we're losing a guy who doesn't want to be here so who cares.

Personally I'll miss Pierce the most with Smoot a close second.

Re: Who will the Redskins miss the most?
I answered Smoot but having said that I don't think any of those three will be the reason we do or don't make our potential.

I'm still putting my money on the Coach.

Viva le Gibbs!

Re: Who will the Redskins miss the most?
Tough call but i would say Pierce.

He was the QB of the D and a great find.

Smoot was a good CB, but not as good as Springs. Coles and his 90 catches wont be replaced by 1 guy but i think the Moss/Patten combo will catch as many balls as the Coles/Gardner combo.

Re: Who will the Redskins miss the most?
I initially thought Pierce, but Coles was down right tough! It seems we have some character on defense and another guy will step up because of that. On offense, hmmmm. All of these guys have skills and speed, but Thrash seems to be the only consistent WR to show his guts. It never fails to amaze me how so many fans won't let go of Smoot. I don't recall all of this 'love' for Champ. Maybe Stephen Davis though. Let it go guys. :oink:

Re: Who will the Redskins miss the most?
I think it's a VERY tough call.

It depends on his toe situation, our offensive system in 2005, Santana Moss and who we draft. If he finally gets over his toe and becomes the explosive wideout we got when we first traded for him, I think there will be a lot of talk about how we miss him. If he heals well and our offensive system does in fact change to a more "open, downfield" system, Coles might have stopped complaining and our offense would've really benefitted. But those are a lot of ifs. I think how Coles' departure affects us also depends on how Santana Moss plays. If Moss looks like the Moss of 2003, Coles' departure will look like a blessing; we'll have gotten a cheaper player who wants to be here who has a smalller impact on our cap - a great deal. If our wide receiving corps plays like I think it will, we'll need to have drafted a wideout. So, there are so many variables in predicting the impact of Coles' departure that it's hard to make an accurate prediction.

If Pierce continues to play like he did in 2004, we'll miss him terribly. He got a deal that was significantly less than the deal we gave to Trotter and he vastly outplayed Trotter. Plus he's younger, more intelligent, quicker, and can play OLB. Finally, it depends on who fills in for Pierce. If Barrow comes back healthy, Pierce's loss won't mean much. If Marshall can play as well at MLB as he did in 2004 at OLB, Pierce's loss won't mean much. Again, so many variables.

Smoot's departure probably won't have that big of an impact on our 2005 team, but his loss could be more significant in 2006 and beyond. Harris will likely fill in well for Smoot, but he's old and we need some young, starting-caliber corners. Harris likely has one, or at most two, solid seasons left in the tank. So, I'm going to go with Smoot's loss having the biggest impact on our team.

Re: Who will the Redskins miss the most?
pierce will be missed more because he was the "general" or "commander" on defense smoot was just a "private" . football is a war and in times of war it's always worse to lose a "commander" than it is to lose a "private" but never-the-less the war will go on without either or, in this case both :coach: . as far as coles goes, i think the skins are better off with the new guys just brought in.

Re: Who will the Redskins miss the most?
none of the above.... none of them are irreplaceable. there are guys on the team already who can get the job done..
losing samuels would have been a body blow... the rest are no big deal

Re: Who will the Redskins miss the most?
if pierce was the brains of the defense like everyone said he was he will surely be missed. the others can be replaced.

Re: Who will the Redskins miss the most?
I voted for Pierce because he helped everyone else do the right thing by calling the plays and understanding WIlliams D. He made the players around him better. Hopefully, we can replace him, but it will be tough.

Smoot will be missed on particular plays next year (i.e., anytime we give up a big pass, it'll be "And remember, folks, they LET Fred Smoot go, etc., etc."), but though it will stand out at times, it won't matter as much overall.

How can you miss a guy who averaged like 9 yards a catch and had 1 TD? That may not have been Coles' fault, but whoever is to blame, we won't miss his "production." If he kicks ass as a jet, we may get depressed a bit, but whatever...
