Re: 'Overpaying' reality check

Right now, we don't have enough details on the contract to be able to really say if anyone has gotten overpaid or not. That said, these deals are probably very reasonable in terms of a cap perspective. More importantly, the cost isn't as important as the value to the team. These are very exciting signings for the Skins. Are offense got much, much better.

Re: 'Overpaying' reality check

how much was lloyd sign for? also great wa yto attack your needs in FA I tought you wouldn't be as agressive as other year I stand corrected. Great pick ups .... the only thing that I question is why give a #3 receiver #2/ #1 type money?

Don't you believe that with Moss, Lloyd and Randall you have to much money straped in 1 position?

Re: 'Overpaying' reality check

The main reason all of these good players with a lot of upside are considering the Redskins over other teams balls down to a well organized group of guys Gibbs and Synder have around them. First, we get Brunell, Portis and Springs to restructure their contracts before the CBA extension. That freed up over 10 million between the three of them. Add 4.5 million from Lavar and 7.5 million with the CBA Agreement now we're cooking. Ramsey will free up 1.9 million with additional money coming from Ryan Clark, Ladell Betts, and at least one of the RF Agents.

When I heard about Synder sending a plane to the Carribean to talk to Collins I knew what Gibbs meant by having an aggressive free agency mission.

Absolutely not. When Gibbs kicked Coles,McCants and Gardner out of D.C. last year he had a plan to get those free agents that you now see in D.C.
The money is available through cooperative restructring via Brunell, Springs and Portis. With that restructuring before the CBA agreement, it allowed us to get on the job quicker than most teams. Lets face it, it's hard to get almost one player to re-structure today. Next on our target John Abraham or Andre Carter. Then Collins (QB) and then wait for the draft.

And what exactly is Dallas going to do in FA?

I've got a great idea. Why don't you bring in a 33 year old WR who is a known coach and QB killer who once did a jig on the Dallas Star. That should really help build some locker room chemistry.

ok why was it such a great moment in skins history, it had nothing to do with your team??? or player? in my opinion beating us last year at home a thing you hadn't do in 10 years losing 13-0 had more meening but hey what ever gets you high.

Also I agree with the TO call I'm not in favor of it..... but that doesn't answers the question I placed before why pay #2 or #1 wr money to a #3? and also you have 4 wr with the same body frame and type of game play you don't have an actual posesion recevier.

The Coles for Moss trade was a terrible decision


Feel free to pile on...
"Sideline" Santana is soft.

GW wont be back as Skin's DC.

Joe Gibbs isn't a football coach anymore, he wont ever coach again...EVER.

Brunell is done, the worst QB in the NFL(okay I said that too).

Explaining things to Dallas fans is never easy, but I'll give it a shot. ;-)

Saunders big body possession receiver in KC was Gonzo. Here it is Cooley.

The reason why it is worth it to pay what it takes to get those new #2 and #3 receivers is that it is an automatic upgrade at the following positions:

WR2
WR3
WR1
QB
RB
TE/H-Back

As TO fails to understand, this is a team game. The passing game has been improved for less money and at less risk than going out and buying another QB.

These moves should be much easier to grasp than most of the ones The Crypt Keeper (J. Jones) has made over the years.

Hey, I knew you were out there somewhere!
I think Moss had possesion when he torched your "golden boy" safety on MNF.

How was that ride home when it was 35-0???

You're absolutely right about the Monday Night Miracles. That was undoubtedly one of the best Redskins moments in recent history.

But, I fail to see how it matters that we lack a possession wideout when we have one of the best WR corps in the league. Moreover, I think Cooley will fill the "possession receiver" role quite nicely.

I don't want to make any bold predictions right now, but I'd venture to guess that your defense will have its hands full the next time we meet. Who wouldn't? Moss, Portis, Cooley, Randle El, Lloyd, Patten, et al form a pretty powerful punch.

Re: 'Overpaying' reality check

Here's my guess--you give a guy like Saunders weapons, and he makes it work. There is no one fixed way to play football; the good coaches adapt their schemes to the players they have. These were the pieces they felt would work best, and off we go. So we don't have a classic possession WR--wonder if Saunders and Gibbs have figured that out and have a plan for it? I'm gonna go out on a limb and say they do...

when they kicked mccants i highly doubt they knew R'El and lloyd and fauria wouldn't sign extensions etc. the restructuring pre cba DIDN'T happen. it was contigent on the CBA failing, and with a new cba, none of them went through.

most of the cash is prorating an extra year and turing all kinds of bonuses to SB to prorate that.

i think carter is the guy so we save a pick to address one need (OL most likely, possibly LB or CB) cheaply. the others need a FA solution.
