Re: Sportsline Power Rankings

Ok guys really I also don't agree with a lot of his remarks also it's to early right now to predict I'm still waiting for the draft and see if we cover or you for that matter the needs we still have.

the only thing that I agree with him and this has been hunting my head all offseason is this
Quote:
There is no doubt the NFC East is going to be brutal, which might make it tough for any of those teams to get to a Super Bowl.
I agree with this, in my opinion Philly is the worst team in our division followed by the giants, in my point of view the reason Philly was so good the las couple of years was in part because our hole division sucked they didn't had real competition.

I don't see them as a power house anymore and I really see them as the team with more weaknesses I see your team and our team as the most improved teams in the division but I see a really brutal division for the first time that might cust any of us the SB we might get tired at the end of the season the players won't be fresh like in seattle and Chicago that face really bad teams in their divisions.

Re: Sportsline Power Rankings

^^^agree mostly. What doesn't kill ya will make you stronger, so I doubt that those teams won't be ready in the playoffs. What may elude the Skins/Boys in that division is homefield advantage. I don't see anyone in the East better than 12-4, and the Panthers or Bears could be better than that.

Neither is better than Washington, though.

Re: Sportsline Power Rankings

The Redskins are the only team in the entire NFL to address their needs from a position of strength as oppose to one of desperation. From offensive coordinator to WR's and pass rushing. And just in case anyone missed it, we still have room to resign our core guys. Take a look at our opponents in the NFC East and tell me that the Giants signing of every CB on the free agent market old and washed up wasn't an act of desperation stumbling behind our lead. No need to mention Dallas's dumb ass signing. Eagles either.

CBS Sportsline is apart of the New York based media that have only wishful thinking idiots called Giant and Jets faithful who have only memories of Namath and Simms to drival over. We will win a Superbowl before any of them do , you can take that to the bank.

Re: Sportsline Power Rankings

I'm sorry man but we didn't do no signing of desperation we got younger at RG and TE we went and got a reliable RT for a low contract so we secure that area and let the young one develop and compete and we got the most fierce receiver ( yeah with all the bagage) but we didn't overpaid we made a healthy contract that gives him the money he wanted but every year he's on the line 2 being cut and it won't hurth the franchise.

We didn't overpaid for the players we got like you did man paying Archuleta the highest Safety salary contract, a guy tha thave huge coverage problems and hasn't live to his hipe, or paid 2 #2 wr at best #1wr money Randal el caught 35 passes last year but your owner still tought he was worth that 30+ mill contract.

I repeat for me your best pickup this year was resigning williams and getting Saulders as your off Coord. you got 2 wr that will make you more agressive but you still need a LB maybe 2, and another cb.

I repeat I see both our teams as the best in the division the ones that did the most to help themselves but I have to waith an see the draft to determine who has the upper hand.

Re: Sportsline Power Rankings

Argh. I'm looking at this purely objectively and it doesn't seem like any opposing fans can really do the same.

TO did not make the offense world's better. He improved it, but didn't make it elite by any means. We overspent without a doubt, but we made it to the playoffs and WON a game last year which is more than I can say for the rest of the NFC East. I don't think that whoever the Cowboys, Giants or Eagles draft is going to make enough of a difference to push them over the Skins. Last year I was totally objective and said that the Eagles would probably take the division again (I didn't predict the McNabb injury and TO fallout). But seriously, the division is the Skins to lose this year.

Tsk, tsk, tsk. So quick to take the Skins signings for granted. I respect your opinion about what you THINK are our best signings, however you have overlooked the best one IMO (Andre Carter).

As for your opinion about our free agent haul, whateva. Gregg Williams runs the defense and I think he's a little more familiar with his defense and what he needs from a strong safety than you, so I'm gonna have to side with GW here. Oh, and if you forgot Matt Bowen looked to be a FORCE a couple of seasons ago up until he got hurt. I think Archuleta is better (quicker, stronger, more athletic) so I'll roll with him. Oh, and strong safety is run support, free safety is coverage.

As for TO, he does make the offense better, but the Cowboys still suffer from one fatal flaw, Drew Bledsoe. He's got a helluva arm, but I'll take my chances that we can get to him before he can get the ball to TO. And last I checked Terry Glenn is still on the other side, oooh real scary. Meanwhile, at Redskin Park we've also got a bona fide playmaker at #1, Santana Moss. And now we have other options at wideout that will free up Moss and also Portis. Uh oh, its pick your poison. Put eight in the box and leave Moss one on one with Terrence Newman? Play coverage and watch Portis run wild?

I think the Cowboys are improved with the Keyshawn subtraction and TO addition. But when he went to Philly they were already an elite team and he just helped push them over the top. Dallas, while good, is not an elite team. Or have you forgotten your record over the last few seasons? I'll let you in on a little secret, it wasn't that good. But optimism reigns supreme in the offseason. I think TO will produce, that won't be the problem, the problem will be the same its always been, his mouth. Maybe not this year, maybe not next, but TO is a ticking time bomb. With $10 mil this year he's happy. Hope it lasts.

As for Al Saunders, feel free to shake in your boots. No one knows what our offense is going to look like next year. Will it resemble KC? Will it be what we ran last year? A hybrid of the two? If you know, or rather, if you think you know, then feel free to fill me in.

Lastly, our division. SKins-Giants-Eagles-Cowboys. The Eagles still have the best qb in our division, a very good defense, and they had a ton of injuries last year (probably a result of playing so many playoff games the last few years).

Re: Sportsline Power Rankings

Honestly, I think TO is a good boy this year and won't be a problem at all. I just think the Cowboys will be average to slightly above average. The other teams in the division have improved, namely the Redskins and Giants. I think the Cowboys and Eagles will be duking it out for last in the division.

Re: Sportsline Power Rankings

I can not believe they put Philly AND the Giants in front of us. Really doesnt make too much sense, and his justification for each is even worst. Now I understand why much of the media think the Cowboys have had a better offseasons, even without TO, they had some solid signings, and they are going to rely on the draft to fill their other holes. That being said, even if you hate the Skins, I see no way the Dolphins, Giants, and Eagles, could be put in front of us. No way.

Re: Sportsline Power Rankings

It will be a battle in the division this year. I think the media really just uses the same storylines for the Skins each year, without really paying attention to what we're doing.

Honestly, I hope everyone predicts us to finish last in the division. It'll make it that much sweeter when we win it anyway.

I agree. Let's fly below the radar again this year and surprise everyone again. Who cares what idiots like the writer on Sportsline think? It will be fun to discredit the fool, though.

Re: Sportsline Power Rankings

Anyone could have easily critisized our signings in 04', yet those are our core guys...our coaching staff has a way of bringing out the best in forgotten (underachived) players. He's a moron...his rankings are so off and unsupported that I wouldn't be suprised if he picked Florida to win...LOL

Ask any other team in the league who'd they rather play from the NFC East with playoffs implications and I guarantee you that the Skins wont be at the top of that list...thats what matters we're starting to get respect around the league...other teams know, what's it going to take for this idiot to know.

Re: Sportsline Power Rankings

Let's be realistic about next year. The Skins were one of the final 4 teams left in the NFC. I don't think any of those final 4 teams (Seattle, Chicago, Carolina, and Washington) took a step back so far going in to 06. However, I do think the Skins have taken a step forward with their recent signings. If you think Carolina took a step forward signing Keyshawn, then maybe they have helped themselves as well. I also think that the Skins took several of the FAs that Chicago wanted and they were a final 4 team. Based on last year and our signings we should be predicted to be either 1st or second in the division and maybe even predicted to make the NFC Championship game. Beyond that is anyone's guess, but these guys theat have us taking a step back are just foolish.

Re: Sportsline Power Rankings

We have bad coaches, apparently, who can't develop talent or utilize the resources on hand. They signed these guys for all this money on a dare made during a Texas Hold 'Em game over at Joe Bugel's house. I mean really, what have Joe Gibbs, Greg Williams and Al Saunders really accomplished anyway that would warrant an acknowledgement that they know what they are doing when it comes to personnel decisions?

Carolina signed some others that should help too, but they also lost witherspoon. Seattle hasn't seemed to draw any comparisons to us YET, but w/what Allen spent on Burleson & Peterson, not to mention Alexander, if they don't at least get to the super bowl again it will be disappointing to their fans & maybe viewed as a failure by the press. I agree, the Bears didn't do a lot but they did sign Griese, he may turn out to be their starting qb.
We should be competitive again, but a no. of NFC teams improved, watch out for Atl. Tampa Bay too. Plus our division improved, it will be tough to sweep anybody. If we win the division, we might be as good as anybody.
