Off the top of my head. Getting Jim Lachey for Jay Schroeder was a pretty good deal

Yes, those were good trades. But hands down, the 2 best trades ever for the Redskins were:

1. Getting Sonny Jurgenson for Norman Snead - the absolute steal of the century.

2. Getting Bobby Mitchell for Ernie Davis. That trade was only great because of the horrible misfortune of Davis, who was diagnosed with leukemia and died before he ever got the opportunity to play in an NFL game. For that reason, it is tough to look at this as a great trade, but it turned out that way because of tragedy. Davis was a big bruiser who had broken Jim Brown's records at Syracuse, and the Browns were drooling at the thought of both of them in the same backfield. The story is, that the Redskins agreed to the trade, because Davis was slated to be the first black on the Redskins, and some thought he may have a tough time with the pressures that brought. Bobby Mitchell was ready and willling to go that route. The Skins converted Mitchell to flanker, where he provided us with many, many exciting moments.

Actually, we didn't get all 3 of those guys for Ricky Williams. What we got for Ricky and a couple of our picks was LaVar, Champ, and several guys you never heard of again. I agree we came out ahead in the deal, but nothing overwhelming. We got Samuels in a deal where we gave up most of our draft picks that year to Chicago.

Champ and LaVar turned out to be in the top 5 of their position, whereas Ricky is teetering on the top 5 list. LT, McCallister, Portis, Green, Holmes, Lewis, Alexander, and Faulk all rank higher on my list. (This list is in no particular order)

Not exactly a trade, but the best thing that ever happened to the Redskins was the Panthers taking DL Sean Gilbert, and we getting two first round picks for franchising him.

Daseal, first, if you look at the total stats for the past 3 years or past 5 years, putting every one of those guys ahead of Ricky is REAL tough to support. Another point to think about - No team in their right mind is going to trade the #5 NFL RB for the #5 LB straight up. Same for the #5 DB. Denver did close to that, BUT they got a top 2 DB, a round 2 pick for a top 5 RB, AND they are still going to look silly for doing it by the end of this season. Like I said, we got the advantage in that Ricky Williams trade, but not overwhelming. Certainly not even in the same league with a similar trade the cowboys pulled off for Herschel Walker. Of course they made MUCH better use of their middle round picks they got from the Vikings in that trade than we did with the Saints middle round picks. Go look at the list sometime. Can you say "Lloyd Harrison" or "Nate Stinson"? (Just a couple examples...)

I feel all those backs are better because they do more with less carries. Ricky has more attempts than most every other back in the NFL which is why he get's his yards. Not trying to knock him, and we both agree it was a good deal for the skins. The only difference is I think it was quite a bit better.

Daseal, not to drag this out, but I think you may be missing a bit here in assessing the value of a back. Yes, most of those guys you listed have gained a fraction of 1 yard more per carry than Ricky Williams over the past 3 years. But Ricky HAS averaged 4.1 yards per carry over that time. He is not a "slasher" or breakaway back, he is a pounding, bruising back who gets better and better as the game goes on, and is extremely valuable to a team. You may be a little young to remember how much John Riggins meant to the Redskins, but he made it into the Hall of Fame with 3.7 yards per carry for his career, which is a little less than Ricky's lifetime average. Think about how much Stephen Davis meant to this team, especially in the 4th quarter. In 3 of his 4 years with the Redskins, he had less than 4.1 yards per carry. Ricky is the same TYPE of back as Riggins and Davis - he wears down a defense over the course of a game, making it more vulnerable in general, and can eat up valuable clock time when you have a 4th quarter lead. That is something that we lacked last year that cost more than one win. I am thrilled we got Portis, but would be just as happy to have gotten Ricky, or any of the guys you listed, except Faulk (seen his best days), Holmes (time for him to start dropping off), and Alexander (who I do not put in the same category as the rest - even though went to Alabama <Go Tide!!> LOL). Another plus for Ricky is that he is a "team" player, who will play through pain. A lot of guys today will not.

P.S. I was just re-reading my post, and realized one more reason I may be so high on Ricky. I have been a Redskin fan since around 1950. My 3 favorite Redskins over all these years are Riggins, Jurgenson, and Taylor (probably in that order). I saw a LOT of plays the last few years where Williams was dragging would-be tacklers several yards farther down field. I guess his style just reminds me a lot of Riggins - dragging 1, 2, or 3 tacklers for another 2-3 yards.

Also Ricky's team up until now had no other offensive threats other than himself enabling the defense to focus on the run yet he still has been able to be effective.

I wouldn't call Chris Chambers a non-threat, Sitting.

It's no secret that I'm not a fan of the big bruiser backs. This could be part of the reason why I'm not a huge Ricky fan. I liked Washington more than Riggins, and I was never a real Stephen Davis fan. I like the quick, slashing, gamebreaking backs. To each his own!

Hogskin - your post certainly makes a lot of sense, but I don't like RIcky's style. He's a tough SOB and he's a great team player, but I like the guy that can fly through a tiny hole and avoid guys. I also don't think priest will be falling off soon, and I really think Alexander is a great back. He tore it up for me in fantasy last year. He did better than Stephen Davis did; at least the way my league was setup.
