Re: Just Great!!

I think the Redskins had to let him go and get the cap room. But, I still think he'll be a force (even if many have forgotten how he used to be). Sure, Arrington was often out of position and didn't fit well within Lewis or Williams' schemes, but he'll do real well with a change of scenery. I guess I don't understand why people act like the guy isn't valuable.

As for Ramsey, who knows. He could be medicore somewhere else, or fantastic. I don't think anyone should be ready to write the book on him (good or bad).

Re: Just Great!!

I would love to see him sign with the Giants, I hope he blows thier cap out of the water like he did us, then we can run misdirection at him constantly when we play them and enjoy big play after big play, while the likes of Robert Royal lock him down in pass protection, Lavar is a legend in name only.

Re: Just Great!!

I must admit that I got really upset after reading Nunyo's article on SI.com. I know that despite everything, Arrington loved being a Redskin. I know many cynics among us doubt how much he loved the team. But, according to everyone close to Arrington, he loved the team, it's history, the fans, the city, and the people. That is why he is going to continue to keep his home here and why he says he will still be a Washingtonian.

It had to be, but I'm still upset about it.

I don't think he's reached legendary status in fact or name. Was he overrated at one point? Yeah. Is he probably underrated now? Yeah.

Just because he isn't the best player at his position doesn't mean he isn't a damn good player. That 10 teams are interested in his services (more than you can say for any other free agent) says the market seems to think he's a pretty good player.

It was once popular to praise him. Now it's fashionable to knock him. Sorry, but he's still a good player. Anyone who thinks otherwise is probably going to be surprised next season.

Ahhh ... what short memories we have.

The Eagles just signed Shawn Barber, which should lower the chances of them gettin Lavar

It's not a dick move, it's his decision. He's allowed to play where he so desires.

Oh, yeah LaVar is to blame for the Redskins cap problem. thats a good one. I guess someone name Dan or Vinney had absolutely nothing to do with that. I guess Lavar was to be blamed for all the misfortunes of the Redskins lately.

Re: Just Great!!

Where Lavar ends up is of little consequence when we remember that he is hideously overweight and runs like Peggy Bundy. It would probably be BETTER for us if we could play against him twice a year. That's at least 4 blown coverages for the other team (assuming Lavar wins a starting job.)

I hope LaVar doesn't play well against us, although I am sure he will play a little harder when its us. However, I will remember you log on name because I want to see what you say when he comes back at his original playing weight and is flashing that speed that made him one of the most exciting players in the NFL. You seem to forget it takes a good 12 -15 months to fully heal from knee surgery, especially when you have two as close together as he did. he is only 27 years old people. Are you just scared that he is going to be awesome again?

Re: Just Great!!

If Greg Williams [one of the current great defensive Coaches] has no need or desire for Levar to be on the Redskins team I will take his educated opinion over anyone here at the warpath.

Good luck to Levar but my personal guess he will never be what we saw before.

peace
Hail Skins

I did say "probably". Perhaps Lavar just needed time to heal as you say. On the other hand, sometimes people NEVER fully recover and that can be psychological as much as anything else. And don't worry--if Lavar plays like L.T. and winds up all over the highlights for his new team, I'll be the first to say I was wrong and to congratulate him. I wish Lavar well. It's not a personal thing to me. It wouldn't have been upset if Lavar stayed either. I just am of the opinion that his skills have diminished. To me, it's a football judgement. I would advise all football fans to drop their allegiance to individual players. Seinfeld calls it rooting for laundry, but no player lasts forever anyways. In the end, it's the team that matters. Years from now when Lavar has either faded into obscurity or gone on to great glory, we will still be pulling for the Skins.
