Re: The Skins' biggest area of need?

has to be WR, solely because our defense is still good with the DLine we have. adding another WR would help our offense immensely

Wide Receiver. We need a Moss clone on the other side.

I thought he was going to play pro baseball. Anyway, wide receiver, though I don't think a Santana clone is the answer (unless you just mean a very productive stud). A bigger wideout who could be a red zone target and compliment - rather than mimick - Santana would be great. I suspect he will command some decent money and New England will probably keep him, but David Givens would be great. A rush DE comes in a close second.

Re: The Skins' biggest area of need?

I'm the first one to vote for "other". I think the offensive line - particularly the depth on the offensive line needs to be improved a lot.

I would agree that depth is a good area that needs to be improved. I think our starting five are fine, but now that Ray Brown is gone, we have NO ONE to step in. I mean, we saw what happened when Raymer got in there at gaurd last weekend, it was ugly.

However, I still voted for WR. Moss is great, but when teams can put multiple men on you, I dont think anyone in the NFL can consistently perform (the lone exception possibly being Steve Smith).

Re: The Skins' biggest area of need?

I've gotta go with WR too.

Jacobs and Thrash simply can't get the job done. I like Thrash on special teams but otherwise he's pretty much a #4 at best.

I still have faith in Patten, but he may be better suited in a #3 role.

I think we really need to add a legit #2 to compliment Moss.

Re: The Skins' biggest area of need?

WR all the way....

Someone with size and good hands. A possesion type receiver.

Re: The Skins' biggest area of need?

Let me be clear here. I am not saying that adding help at WR is unimportant. That is VERY important. Taylor Jacobs is NOT ever going to be a top shelf WR in the NFL. I kinda felt that way at the beginning of last year but held out hope he could become an important contributor to thi team. He didn't; I'm now convinced he can't. James Thrash is a #3 WR and special teams player; that's it. Patten and Moss are solid but they are small and the Skins will need to have some depth there.

OK, does everyone understand that I agree that WR needs upgrading.

Now look at the OL. Sorry but Professor Dockery is only the starting guard on this team because the back-ups were 43-year-old Ray Brown and Cory Raymer. Both back-ups are way below par; imagine if Thomas had been injured in Week 4 and the Skins tried to go 3 months with Brown/Raymer as their tandem at right guard. Excuse me, but there would have been zero playoff games for the Skins. Dockery starts ahead of those two but that ain't sayin' much. He's been here long enough that he should be "really good" at least half the time out there. I'd say he's not tripping over his Johnson half the time out there but that's not quite the same as being "really good"...

So, even if you are 100% convinced that the Skins back-up at OT is the greatest thing since the mattress - I don't know because I didn't see much of any of them this year - that means the Skins need to replace 3 offensive linemen in the off-season. That's why I think this is their biggest need.

Re: The Skins' biggest area of need?

WR without a doubt...even though we need more pass rush from the DL the defense is still managing to get the job done overall.

The offense gets nothing out of any WR other than Moss and it hurts them in a lot of games. Against good teams that can take away Moss it criples the passing game. They need a #2 WR that can get open against one on one coverage consistently.

Re: The Skins' biggest area of need?

At least we appear to be on the same page with the team, this is from Boswell's article today

Quote:
"We know it," said one Redskins source of the gaping need at wide receiver. "Believe me, we know it."
