do the skins always get their man?

do the washington redskins(in the dan snyder era)always get the free agents and other players they want?it seems like the players earmarked by the skins as "must haves" always end up in washington.can anyone remember a player that was coveted by the skins that ended up elsewhere?

We seem better at signing then at re-signing--Pierce and Smoot would be the ones that leap to mind...

But when we really target someone, we are pretty good.

We wanted Jevon Kearse a couple years back as well.

No, but you might try Dog, The Bounty Hunter!









We don't get every single one, but enough to look as if we are making an effort.

This was all up in the air two weeks ago. We could not get under the Old Cap very easily, and we had no wiggle room to acquire new FAs. The new CBA has helped us tremendously this year in making strides in the FA market.

Re: do the skins always get their man?

you would have thought holdman would be better than worthless after all those 80 tackles seasons.

I might be the only one here, but I'm pretty satisfied with getting Carter. Yeah, Kearse would have been nice, but his sacks and tackles have tailed off a bit the past couple of seasons in Philly (plus he's been nicked up). But Courtney Brown? The dude is nothing but hurt all the time and his best season was 2003 with 6 sacks (4 FF and 30 tackles). That's neither big money nor big interest talent in my book. At least Carter has had a double digit (13) sack season from a LB position.

that was from the DE position. he only played LB last year and wasn't very good at it (just not fast enough) where he only had 2.5 sacks.

Okay. That sounds right. I was thinking that 13 from a LB sounded awfully good.

They inquired about Kearse but they did not want to pay him what Philly paid.
