What Gibbs hasn't Done....landing the small fish!!!

Gibbs and Company have done great landing the big fish in free agency with big money....Randle El, Archuleta, Washington, Griffin, and Carter! Great job! As for the draft not bad as well taking Taylor and Rogers along with Campbell in the first round. Better yet was a 3rd rounder used on Cooley. As for the rest of the draft so-so with six picks and only four still with the team. Trades has been another big thing that has goen well for Gibbs trading for Moss,Burnell, Lloyd and Portis. But getting that small fish will make or break the 06 season. The Gibbs Skins have picked up lesser known players like R.Clark, Rabach[Maybe he is a little bigger then a small fish] and Prioleau. Really no others to speck of under Gibbs. He will need to do so if we are to win a Super Bowl. After the big Free Agent free for all and all that money you still have to have fill in's,back up's and a player or two that starts. We filled in a TE spot with Fauria and that was nice. But a OLB or MLB starter will be needed along with a 3rd and 4th CB and OL depth! Money this time will not get these thing!!! Most of that is goen. The draft and free agency will have to do it. The draft has one high pick [a 2nd] with the rest low picks that have not been historically good for the Redskins. So maybe one or two of the needs can be filled through the draft but the rest will have to be filled with another teams cut or free agency. Turn on that Gibbs Charm there is more work to do. By the way you also need a Kicker and a Punter as well.

Re: What Gibbs hasn't Done....landing the small fish!!!

hall is our kicker. frost is our punter, they've made no attempt to fix that.

tyler jones is the camp competition, and i think an undrafted college guy (koch) should at least be brought in for competition at punter.

There are some interesting projects at OL/CB/LB in the 5th round this year, but we pick so late that i don't know who'll be left.

Small fish like Washington?

The depth we've acquired in some cases are last year's starters. Phillip Daniels has had health concerns in the past. Now, inistead of relying on a UDFA to step up, our depth chart has three proven starters.

First off Washington isn't a small fish!! I put him with this years big guns. As for the rest of your post there are places we do have depth but O line is not one of them. When you are in a play-off game and your back up guard is a washed up center will you need help! Just think if someone else went down!

Re: What Gibbs hasn't Done....landing the small fish!!!

So sorry, my sarcasm button is broken on this PC.

O line depth is a concern, but we still have the draft, training camp, and June cuts to fill those slots. We bemoan the fact that our team all but ignores the draft, yet demand a complete roster in March. Patience is my new buzzword (replacing "diarrhea" in a close vote).

In years past, our March roster has not been an indication of our September roster (remember the Jacquez Green era?). Let's wait, and enjoy the ride.

Re: What Gibbs hasn't Done....landing the small fish!!!

It amazes me that people want to complain about what Gibbs hasn't done.. 'Gibbs hasn't made the winter warm enough! I still need to occassionally scrape ice off my windshield in the morning.' Give it a rest, are we coming off our best season in years? Yes. Have we had a great offseason thusfar? Yes. Wait until August before complaining about the teams' makeup and depth will ya?

Re: What Gibbs hasn't Done....landing the small fish!!!

If people here are all talking about the lack of depth on the OL, getting another CB and LB do you really believe Gibbs and Co. haven't been working on that for months now?? Teams will still cut quality players in June, we still have the draft(not gonna get much there) and Free Agency didn't all of the sudden end yesterday.


Joe Gibbs is generally reguarded as the most prepared coach in the NFL...maybe EVER...now he is basically running the franchise...is he going to be any less prepared?

All the doubters, know one thing...wherever your mind is...GIbb's and company are atleast two steps ahead. Thats Gibb's history in the NFL, Nascar and back in the NFL. This guy knows what he is doing, has built winners in two sports and will get the job done....know that.

Re: What Gibbs hasn't Done....landing the small fish!!!

My assessment of Gibbs offseason so far? ..........

If diehard 'Skins fans are scratching their heads over his next move, think about what the competition is doing.

Re: What Gibbs hasn't Done....landing the small fish!!!

I agree they don't have the depth they should right now but they do have time and the bench players won't cause much fanfare anyway. All the big names are in and the rest of them will be blurbs in the newspaper. Had Ramsey been traded already Todd Collins would have been a blurb in the paper. Maybe not because the Redskins pretty much are the crown jewel of the city.

Since we know they need depth who's out there that they should look at ? I think Orlando Brown who was just released by the team who is a close second on my most hated teams list to the Dallas Cowboys, the Baltimore Ravens. He would probably be good behind Chris Samuels who is bothered by that ankle at times.


Who else has started drinking already ?

Re: What Gibbs hasn't Done....landing the small fish!!!

I think at this point, gibbs and his personnel staff should put more focus on the draft with the few choices that they have (if they haven't already). They seem to haven't been successful at rounds 4 and later. Part of that is not having many picks because I believe the success of draft picks at any round is more about chance than anything else - the more picks that you have, the better chances of success, statistically (sp?) and logically (sp?) thinking.

The draft-related results that have encouraged me about gibbs and co. are the high success rate of rounds 1 - 3 with the few they've had. If they can be consistent and translate some of that success of the earlier rounds to the later rounds, they would be the best personnel staff in the nfl in my opinion. I believe that this could be done by spending (a lot) more time and energy of evaluating draft talent - it's easier to evaluate talent in the early rounds - less players to evaluate and more control with the draft picks. This is easier said than done I know, but I believe this is part of the reason Saunders is on board now - to free up Gibbs to be able to do this stuff.

Re: What Gibbs hasn't Done....landing the small fish!!!

... and the reason that they lack depth is because of the redskins draft results:
(1) Weak results from round 4 and on.
(2) Not enough draft choices.

I believe you need to build about half of team depth (whatever that comes out to, just a guesstimation) from the draft of the later rounds.
