I think the players we have could perfom better if there was some consistency around them. If they could learn how to play with each other rather than having to learn how to play with a new player every year we might be able to develop consistent success rather than intermitent success.

We have made good moves but they shouldn't be in lieu of keeping our core players.

Re: Your opinion on the Skins free agent moves so far?

I like the signings of Archuleta and Fauria. However, I'm not sure how I feel about Randle El and Lloyd. I feel like we overpaid for both. I also don't like how we had to give up 2 draft picks for Lloyd. I also doubt we'll be able to keep three wideouts happy that they are getting enough balls thrown their way.

But, ultimately, Gibbs knows what he is doing. Also, after seeing how we've managed to evade cap hell for all these years, I'll give the Redskins front office the benefit of the doubt that we can stay out of cap hell.

i feel you there. ive heard that both lloyd AND randle el both get pissy when they dont get all the balls thrown their way. but as i said before, if theres ANY coach that can nip that in the bud, its gibbs and co.

What do we need to save for our rookie salary cap pool? What, $5 and a happy meal?

Re: Your opinion on the Skins free agent moves so far?

I'll wait and see. I think we overpaid for Randel El even though I think he's a great talent. I thought Patten could have been a great #3 option given the chance and we spent $ on him 1 year ago. Personally, i think we could have signed 1 wr and spent the $ elsewhere. But, I'll trust Gibbs on these and wait on the results.

Re: Your opinion on the Skins free agent moves so far?

I like all the moves so far and hope we complete the deal with Carter. If we sign Jeff Mitchell for depth, then the only thing we haven't addressed is a quality 3rd corner (IMHO, and in an ideal world, our 3rd corner is good enough to be the No.2 corner simply b/c of the number of teams that are 3 deep at WR nowadays).

One thing to notice about the defensive guys we are pursuing (Carter, Archuletta), each is extremely versatile. Archuletta was a LB in college and, coming out, they were talking about playing him in a variety of positions, including TE. Carter is a DE/OLB tweener. I am betting that GW is planning on REALLY mixing it up next year if he can get both these guys.

W/ the versatile weapons they are giving Saunders on offense (Cooley, Sellers, R-El) and Williams on defense, I predict that opposing teams are gonna get slammed coming and going, and, just when they think they got it figured out, Saunders and GW will change it up on them.

How long before opening day?

Re: Your opinion on the Skins free agent moves so far?

reading this stuff about archuleta makes me think hes a lot like roy williams. plays well against the run, has a "few" problems in coverage, but overall is a pretty good player. im pumped to have him. and seriously, not being a homer, i can see a top 3 offense next year.

I said it's good so far, but we need what the team has needed for years in a young passrushing de before I can say it's been great.

Re: Your opinion on the Skins free agent moves so far?

i love these moves... I mentioned that we should target these players before the start of free agency and everyone said I had no concept of the cap situation and we couldn't afford these players. hahahaha who doesn't know what their talking about now?
