Redskins - Losers?

Free agency winners and losers
Teams that hit it big or wildly missed this offseason

I'm unable to post the link to CNNSI, but Don Banks labels the B&G losers! Actually, I don't know how to post a link! Sorry!

Hopefully a moderator can add it later.


Did I miss a memo on us losing in FA or something?

Is Don Banks now doing his best Fat Lenny, or P. King?

Receiver Antwaan Randle El and linebacker Andre Carter also got hefty deals, and Washington opted to send both a third- and fourth-round pick to San Francisco in exchange for inconsistent receiver Brandon Lloyd. Even reserve tight end Fauria and backup quarterback Todd Collins got in on the money train.

The Redskins' set-the-market contracts are bound to catch up to them one day. My guess is it'll be after head coach Joe Gibbs calls it a career for a second time, in a year or two.

I can bring the news, but I can't bring any skills to the computer table! I've heard the term URL, but I can't find that button on the keyboard. The mouse doesn't have any voice, so, I'm at a loss. I've disabled my speakers because I can't stand dings, bells and or whistles.

Now, due to watching the screen for so long, my eyes are going bad. I had to upgrade my reading glasses a while back.

I get stiff while sitting for long periods. My knees won't cooperate on steps. I get Arthur in my thumbs.

My hair is grey/white, and thinning.


Help, I've fallen, and can't get up!

Re: Redskins - Losers?

I read the article and his only reason for the skins to be a "loser" is that we spent money! This writter has no idea about how to look at moves in a football type manner. Our moves will help us to win games, point blank. I guess he is just bothered that Snyder and the skins can spend what he makes in a lifetime in a blink of an eye.

Collins gets a two year 2.5 million$ deal (chooo chooo!?!?!)...
and fauria gets 800,000 in 2006 and 1 million in 2007....

This guy is reading headlines and not looking into any facts.

Re: Redskins - Losers?

Ok, so let me get this straight. The Redskins seriously upgrade their WR corp, a major weakness late in the season, even though they still were within 2 games of the Superbowl. Drop L. Arrington and his big contract, who was only on the filed during about a 3rd of their games. Sign a serious pass rusher at DE and a slobberknocker at Safety and they are losers in FA?!?!

These guys are all jealous because their favorite teams won't spend money.
Also, someone please tell me how getting T.O. makes you a winner, when I am sure this same media guy talked about how bad a person T.O. was at some point last year.

T.O. was signed to a 3 year 25 MILLION$ deal

so this guy is hating...on the redskins for spending money on proven team players focusing on our needs.... and absolving the cowboys who released one crazy but talented receiver, and signed another even-crazier and talented receiver.

yeah, i refuse to post anymore about this guy, he's obviously smoking somethin.

Re: Redskins - Losers?

My favorite is one paragraph implying that the Antwaan deal was a poor one for us. And then the next paragraph he criticizes Pittsburgh for losing his him.

Do what?

Re: Redskins - Losers?

These guys kill me when they call Archuletta the highest paid safety in history.

They totally lose perspective. The entire contract isn't guaranteed and more than likely he'll restructure the deal somewhere down the line.

Re: Redskins - Losers?

Hmmmmm?


Maybe this is why these scribes write about the Redskins the way they do. To get us talking!


Otherwise, this is a semi-almost comatose period for the B&G. We've made our FA acquisitions, and are waiting for 50+ picks in the NFL Draft preceeding ours, then waiting for the second day of the Draft, then waiting a long, long time for the start of TC!

Washington -- The Redskins' cap situation will be their biggest obstacle to improvement this offseason. Even if LaVar Arrington is cut after June 1 and counts just $5 million against the 2006 cap, Washington still will have to shave another $15 million off the anticipated $95 million cap. Bottom line? It'll be tough for the Redskins to land the top-notch No. 2 receiver they covet.
Yeah it was sooooo tough to land that no. 2 receiver. Even harder to land two!
