Re: Brentson Buckner

A couple of things :

1) WHY? he is older than what you want starting for you. He isn't going to be all that cheap. Why is it when someone is dropped with a relatively big name do you people think he would be good for the Redskins? Its rediculous. Thats how we get into these dead money issues. signing people to 5 year deals that know they wont play for more than 2. the Springs thing will come back to haunt us , but thats another discussion.

2) I live in Charlotte, ballentyne area where alot of the players live. I have ran into a few of the panthers, Steven Davis(cool dude by the way) Muhammed last year before he signed w/ chicago(another cool guy, signed my sons shirt) Actually Jon Fox lives in my development. no way is this guy not liked. Every radio show with team mates, fans, radio personalities,all love this guy. So he wouldn't be a disruption to the locker room.

3) hes been injured alot the last couple of years, why pay for someone to sit on IR? doesn't make sense.

Re: Brentson Buckner

I wonder where it was that I read that his teammates had problems with him. I'm drawing a total blank on it. I remember it being something about them not being happy with some comments he made to the media, and they didn't like how he went back and forth on whether to retire last off-season.

Oh well. All that aside, I don't think he's the right fit considering his age and our needs.

Re: Brentson Buckner

noble and griffin were better than griffin and joe S.

I don't think big joe needs to be replaced, but ideally if you draft a #3, you hope he can eventually repalce him as the #2.

Still getting 35+ year olds is the wrong direction. we've got a decent line minus wynn (griffin is a great #1 DT, if daniels continues how he finished, he's a good #2 DE, joe S is a great #3 and a decent #2), the average age is a little higher than you'd like though.

You're right there. It would mean we could save having to sign another DE and use that money on him...
Regret nothing. At one time it was exactly what you wanted.

Re: Brentson Buckner

I don't think the Skins need to add anyone to keep from having to add a pass rushing DE. I don't buy into this thinking that we don't need a quality pass rush from the front four. Granted, Philip Daniels stepped up at the end of last season, but he was going up against a horrible tackle when he had the huge game against Dallas. I think we need a legit pass rusher to play RE and then move Phillip to LE. There is no need to bring in a guy and then not pick up a pass rusher.

As for Buckner, I just think he would be great to add to the rotation now. I think he's better than Salave'a, but he's definitely too old to be the solution.
