At 30 they aren't old enough to show much deterioration and will still cost a lot. That's a big gamble. At 33 they have had a decent amount of time to show what age is doing to them and they are much cheaper. A solid 33 year old with a solid contract is much less of a gamble to me. Not sure what Bruce is off the bat( I think 33) but age isn't totally killing him so at a decent cost he seems like a good short term solution to me. Otherwise stick to the 26-29 year olds.

I am. If Brunell goes down, so does the rest of the team in flames.

Because there isn't much that can be done. What is your proposed solution to your proposed problem?

There isn't going to be any worth wild receivers left when we pick.

Re: Why We Shouldn't Go Crazy in Free Agency

I don't think we'll go crazy in free agency at all.

I do think we'll look long and hard at the two main problem areas, WR and DE, and go from there.

I don't think we'll go crazy either. I think we'll pick up 1-3 new starters and some cheap depth. My main point in creating the thread was to temper the, "let's get Abraham, Howard, Randel-El, Ray Lewis, etc." talk. Getting one of those guys wouldn't be going crazy. Getting boatload of them would be.

We did very well last year with a core group of solid guys. Why wreck team chemistry by revamping the roster? Sure, we need a few guys here and there, but I doubt we need more than 1-3 new starters.

Just my two cents.
Not about going after the top name guys anyway! ait's about picking up players that fit our needs and are young enough to last! IE... M.Washington kind of guy! I think you can get these kind of players to fill needs like #2 WR,LB,OL,DL and CB help. Then use the draft to pick the best play out there when it our pick. I know Gibbs has given a lot to this team and shown why FA should come here. We will see if it is a selling point! I hope so! Thank god we can talk about this and NOT THE CBA!!!

WR are hit and miss. Good scouting can find a solid number 2 WR in the middle rounds and that's what we need. Draft a young guy to develop. Hell even first rounders usually suck so why waste a first rounder on one? I am a firm believer in taking the 14th best WR who looks like a lock to be a solid number 2 guy than taking what amounts to a flyer on a guy in the first round who "has the tools" to be a number 1. There are lots of busts in the first round and a disproportionate amount of them are WRs.

I am a Randel-EL guy but not over paying! As for the rest I think there are others that fill nedds that aren't BIG names that will be great! I think 2-3 starters and so depth on the OL is the way to go as well!

Re: Why We Shouldn't Go Crazy in Free Agency

At least we can "go" anywhere! Without a CBA, it was "who do we cut?" Now we can at least take a look. Rest assured, Gibbs and Co. will choose carefully. But Gibbs himself has said several times: "we are an agressive franchise." He cited Griffen, Daniels, Washington, Rabach, etc. as evidence that good things can happen in FA if you do it right.

Dana Stublefield, Mark Carrier, Deon= crazy

Marcus Washington, Cornelius Griffen, Casey Rabach= agressive within reason.

We are going to be active, at least.

My son is 14 and I was trying to tell him what was going on!!! He loves the Redskins as much as I do. I hope he can see the great teams I saw as a young man that Washington had! He starts high school this football this fall and he loves the game. What is nice is having a man like Gibbs running the show because he will do what the Redskins need and will leave this team better off when he leaves!

I'll grant you two of the three. But why does everyone hate on us about Stubblefield? The guy was a beast immediately before joing the Skins. There was no way anyone would have predicted he would suck so hard.
