Jacobs Impresses Gibbs?
 
According to the washington times, one of the players who has already impressed gibbs is Tayler Jacobs. I think this is good news considering we did invest a 2nd round pick in him. If he reaches his potential we'll have a ton a talent at WR and more importantly we might have Rod Gardners replacement when his contract expires in two years. What are you guys thoughts.

Jacobs is a first round pick although he was picked in the second round. I hope we have some serious threat with our passing game this year. I also liked the bit about how the coaching staff looked at the top 5 passing and rushing teams in the league. They even said they'd have no problem with stealing plays from these teams. :)

I've said it before and I'll say it again, Jacobs was a steal where we got him. The kid is lightning fast. If we tell both Coles and Jacobs to run a fly, they'll both be wide open. He's a gifted receiver and I really think he deserves a shot. If it weren't for a rare injury, Jacobs might have been starting last year.

Can anyone else see a reformation of the Posse happening? Coles - Clark (without the attitude), Jacobs - Sanders, McCants - Monk (that may be a bit of a stretch at this point). And those guys never had a RB like Portis drawing the safeties in, either.

Champ Bailey said that Jacobs had the potential to be the BEST WR on the team. I've had confidence in Taylor's abilites ever since. He showed some of what he's got in the dallas game last year.

He could be one of those guys Gibbs was referring to when he was talking about guys that were on the bench last year that should have seen more time. Kevin Mitchell being another.

skins009 03-28-2004 02:34 PM

Good point i never thought about that. I though he was mostly referring to RB.

I hope Jacobs does turn out to be a viable threat. Im a huge Canes fan and becuase of it prefer not to have Gators, expecially with the Gators track record of subpar NFL receivers. Jacobs might be able to prove that one of Spurriers receivers can make it in the NFL, unlike Spurrier.

AnonEmouse 03-29-2004 06:02 AM

This is the news I've wanted to hear all offseason, since the speculation on McCants started. Anyone else think we can afford to lose McCants now? What about re-signing McCants and trading Gardner?

I know it's a long shot, but I hope we can do some trading to get both Winslow and Taylor - imagine 3rd down and 7 (rare I know with Portis runnnig) and the D sees Gardner, Coles, Taylor, Winslow and Portis lining up! I admit I'd rather see Taylor here, but that does look a lovely line up.

SKINSnCANES 03-29-2004 03:02 PM

We see twice a year how much Shockey changes your defense. Our offense would be a threat.

As a Canes fan though, our offense sucked but they got the ball a lot becuase of Taylor. SO imagine not having Winslow, but having the ball once or twice more a game.

I agree with the reformation of the Posse but IMO it should be Gardner and not McCants. Not to take away from McCants but in 2002 Gardner shown that he had what it takes to be a #1 WR on a team with over 1,000 yards and 8td's on a very inefficient passing team that played QB by committee revolving them as if they a pair of used socks.

Quite ironic that a "Spurrier guy" who many people weren't happy with the Skins picking may end up as a real "Gibbs guy" and one of the "core Redskins"....go figure.....

The Skins do Rock! :headbange
(you know I had to do it at some point!)

We'll see what they do now that they traded for Thrash

BleedBurgundy 03-30-2004 03:35 AM

I don't understand the trade for Thrash. Somebody's gotta go now, right? We can't carry 6 decent WR's when we have other glaring needs on the team. Coles, Jacobs, McCants, Russell and Thrash. Gardener Has to be the odd man out. There's a lot of teams out there who could use a solid #2, which is exactly what Gardener is going to be. Maybe Gibbs saw this as a way to put Jacobs into the mix (since he's been impressed with him so far) and get a possibly 3rd round draft pick this year for Gardener. Then for depth, giving away a 6th for Thrash who, while not spectacular, is a proven commodity and a great character guy? My head's spinning... :banghead:

SKINSnCANES 03-30-2004 02:37 PM

Hmmm... I think Gardner is still a better receiver than all of them except Coles, and you need a guy like Gardner to complement him. Gardner is big, a great vertical and can push over cornerbacks... I wonder if trotter and Gardner would be enough bait to get a pick from the Lions who could use another receiver next to Rogers. WHen Charles Rogers went out for weeks last year he remained the teams leading receiver without playing... Id be nice to pick up the 6th pick in the draft... Of course if I was Detroit id just draft Roy Williams, but im not Detroit so I think they should give us their pick
