I would also add that as far as this coaching staff is concerned, LA has done absolutely nothing for them. I know he's been hurt and all but the bottom line is that LA has not done anything to make this staff take notice. I only wish the skins had traded him back when I suggested and been able to get something of value for him.
#1 I believe I held the view that his cap hit would be too much prior to the Coles situation... that changed everything.

#2 You were right, I was wrong, congrats! It isn't the first time I've been wrong and it definitely won't be the last.

Under ideal circumstances LaVar would be a great piece to this D. I have no doubt he will go elsewhere and remain a very good LB. As the saying goes, 'One man's trash is another man's treasure'.

In this case GW and company just don't have much use for an overpaid LB who by most accounts tends to freelance too much and can't keep his mouth shut in the papers.

He started and he seemed to be out there most of the time, though I did notice he was still being pulled on 3rd downs.

I am glad that this team now seems more concerned with how a player performs than how marketable he is. I applaud GW for sticking to his guns on LA.

And he still only had one tackle? Whats up with that? I thought that maybe he was only in for a couple of plays. Before the game I was thinking that he just might come out and make a statement with a big game.

Re: Can we trade for Smoot now?

He actually had alot of good plays though, in which he changed the direction of the play, pressed the QB, brought sacks for other people, etc. He did alot better than that one tackle, but yea I think we all know LA is not playing at 100 percent, and if he gets back at that level, he is worth every penny.

Re: Can we trade for Smoot now?

I don't want Smoot back. He is too skinny and not a very good tackler. Yes he has good coverage skills, but his run support is lacking. I would rather draft another CB and develop him. A healthy Springs, Rogers and Harris can hold the position down while another rookie deveolps next year. Why overpay for Smoot when he is not a complete CB. Rogers will be a better CB next year than Smoot.

Re: Can we trade for Smoot now?

2 questions:

What is Smoot’s health status?

Are they expecting Carlos Rogers to be available at some point during the playoffs, assuming we advance deeper?

Not sure about Smoot, but Rogers is ready to play.

Re: Can we trade for Smoot now?

Rogers says he'll be back this week

Quote:
While the Redskins await word on whether top cornerback Shawn Springs will be available for Saturday's playoff game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, rookie cornerback Carlos Rogers said yesterday he will return for Washington's first postseason contest since the 1999-2000 season.
Quote:
"I'll be ready, no doubt," Rogers said. "If it hurts, it hurts. But I'll be out there."

I know the topic of this thread is about Smoot possibly coming back, but since LaVar has somehow wiggled onto this thread, let me say this in regards to him being overated. I would like to see LaVar get 100% healthy first. Play a sixteen game season without distractions regardless of who he's playing for, then let his play speak for it'self.

As for Smoot, he had a chance to stay here and choose another route obviously for more money. I'm not sure they would want him back even if available. He really hasn't played that well even when he wasn't injured. Smoot has a difficult time being a physical type corner GW loves in the line-up. He also had problems with injuries his last two seasons here. I'd pass on him.

Oh man, we really need Springs to be healthy. I don't want anymore Walt Harris nightmares.

Maybe this time we'll be able to generate some pressure on Chris Simms. That should help.

Easier said than done.

I think we would all love to see that, coaches included.

I think it's a little too late for him though.

No trading after mid season.
