Re: Thrash, Espy or Farris

Totally agree with that. I think there's a possibility that someone else picks up Espy, especially after the way he played last week.

Re: Thrash, Espy or Farris

I voted Thrash because of what he brings to ST play. I would have voted Espy but he needs to up the level of ST play. Also Thrash is the proven vet out of these three... I hope that we put Espy on the PS for next year, I think that he has tremendous talent, just needs time. Rememeber WR is a very tough position to learn in the NFL...

I agree with you. I think espy will be on the practice squad and farris will make the roster.

Re: Thrash, Espy or Farris

Thrash stays. If nothing else, the effort after the catch last night. He frequently has been the open receiver when the QB is under pressure (i.e. he knows when and how to come back) and gets the first-down yardage. Never makes mistakes.

Patten: I don't know what's happening. Maybe making sure he doesn't get injured in the preseason?

6 vs. 5 WRs on the roster. Gibbs usually goes with 5, but look what happened last year. He might try 6 instead. (And what does Saunders do?)

Re: Thrash, Espy or Farris

Re: Thrash, Espy or Farris

Espy. Patten gets the ax. He didn't make an effort to catch one pass by Campbell and dropped another (yes, Espy dropped two also). You'd think a veteran WR would want to boost the confidence of a young QB and make plays. However, Espy would benefit from being on the PS.

Re: Thrash, Espy or Farris

Espy looks promising and would say practice squad for him for sure.

Exactly. After Patten and Thrash went down last year, it was Taylor Jacobs and Jimmy Farris who replaced them.

According to player stats at NFL.com, Jimmy Farris caught 1 pass for 18 yards, while Jacobs, who had much more playing time, caught 11 passes for 100 yards.

To me, Jimmy Farris, who has been in the league longer than Jacobs, doesn't deserve to be in a Redskin uniform any more than Taylor Jacobs did. He is training camp fodder and will never be anything more.

Re: Thrash, Espy or Farris

I want to keep Richard Smith before Farris. Smith had a decent NFL Europe season, 22 catches for 252 yards and 3 TDs in 10 games.

But here's his value proposition (like that Matty? Remind you of your MBA days?) he knows Saunders' system having played for the Chiefs in 2004. He could be like the Todd Collins of the WR group.

My prediction is that Espy will be on the practice squad, will be invited back to training camp for the next couple of years, ala Derrius Thompson and Justin Skaggs, and within 5 years, he'll be selling insurance.

If Espy were worth half of the comments that I've read about him on this website, he'd be starting somewhere without question.

Re: Thrash, Espy or Farris

is this even a question? farris looked great last preseason against fourth stringers, got to play a lot down the stretch and did NOTHING. Thrash is actually useable and is probably still our #1 gunner.

espy might have earned himself a year on the practice squad, but that's about it.

and whoever thinks patten is getting axed, that's straight up crazy. he's actually produced viable numbers and has some trade value. I wouldn't bet on him getting moved though, he has good character and looker-room value and that seems to really matter quite a bit with Gibbs (See wynn and the $4mill he's getting as a backup when he only produced at a $2mill/year pace as a starter).
