Re: Lavar has been missused...

Speaking for myself, I'm not anti-Lavar. I just don't think he deserves a ton of money. He is still a solid football player, certainly better than his replacement Warrick Holdman. When he is in the lineup, our defense undoubtedly becomes more dangerous. But his production over the past two seasons does NOT justify a hefty contract that will count heavily against the cap.

Re: Lavar has been missused...

I think what some of us fail to realize is that the NFL is a business. When we cheer for our team, we see burgundy and gold. We relate to the game from a fan standpoint, for the most part, and fail to see the business aspect of running a profitable, winning franchise. Unfortunately, sometimes in that order.

We've been very fortunate over the past several decades to have such a rich winning tradition. In part because our team competes in market where the city loves and embraces it's team, and in part due to shrewd management. You can never discount the value of good ownership, which sometimes requires to part with people that have done you a lot of good in the past.

All I'm saying is, yes, LaVar is probably one helluva guy, but at the end of the day we have a limited amout of money to go around to a limited personnel.

And by neccessity we have to make some very hard and difficult decisions and move on.

It's not our place as fans to hold a grudge against him for that matter...let the front office handle it. By mid season next year I would like to see what everyone has to say when Lavar is starting and the skins are winning. Yeah I said it "starting"...It's funny to here some of the comments in this thread about Chris Clemons (a guy who has done absolutely nothing for this franchise) being capable of replacing Lavar. Lavar is a rare talent and he can't be replaced...where else can you find a player that actually loves his team and wants to remain there his entire career. He'll get everything worked out and have the pads on next year; then I would like to see what everyone has to say about wanting Lavar out and saying he's "washed up"; its BS. I got the funny feeling that Lavar will leave this game similar to the way that Bradshaw did...never wanting to return to D.C. because all of the spoiled fans who don’t appreciate a guy who lays it all on the line for their city. You guys are falling into the medias trap, believing that Lavar is this selfish player who only cares about money. While everyone is focusing on how much money he makes, they seem to be overlooking his production late in the season and in the playoffs; he may never be 100% again but 50% of Lavar will always be better that 100% of Clemons.

I wouldn't go as far to say he can't be replaced. Any, and everybody can, will, and has been replaced. I've seen some GREAT PLAYERS in my time, but none were irreplaceable.

Re: Lavar has been missused...

It seems as if everyone is still discussing his contract...He said he was willing to restructure it...Yet you continue to bash him for being a cap casualty. Let the situation work itself out and if he doesn't return next year we'll watch a star be born in Chris Clemons...LOL. "Chris Clemons"...thats rediculous.

I'm guessing you meant joey porter...because if you think Jerry Porter is a better LB than LaVar, then that's not saying much for LA

Re: Lavar has been missused...

I thought the hat made a bold statement about the emptiness of material striving in a post-post-modern landscape that has been stripped of all that is beautiful and true. More ironic than hilarious, it forces the viewer to confront his own ambivalence about the Corporatocracy. (BSB: Try some of this stuff on those Comparative Mythology chicks at College Park and let the good times roll)

way to be unnecessarily divisive. IF he does well that's great, but i doubt he'll outplay his contract, which means I'll still think re-allocating that money to more dire needs (WR, DE) would have been a better idea. When healthy i don't really have any complaints about his talent or his play. but when you compare him to a 12mill income and the salary cap problems and glaring needs at other positions the situation looks different.

That's what I was going for, but today's youth have no appreciation for the po-po-mo landscape they've created....how ironic (like raaaa...iiii.aaaaiiinn on your wedding day!)

no cba, no restructure, nuked roster. he said he's willing to rework his deal, but no one knows to what extent, and we've got lots of money committed next year to a lot of players, so we'll have the same trouble next year. I don't know how saying someone could be a cap casualty is bashing them though... that makes no sense, that' just how it might work out. This is also a forum, if we just let everything work itslef out without saying anything... then why are we here? AP and marhall both came out of nowhere, two years in a row. the chance of having it happen again aren't great, but it could happen. marshall filled in very well for lavar.

I vote that you be banned for quoting Alanis Morissette on this forum. Not because I didn't like that when I was in Middle School, but because it's Alanis Morissette on a Redskins forum...
