From Pro Football Prospectus 2006, "Shawn Springs was the top cornerback in the league according to our game charting numbers,"

Also from the same blurb: "expect the Redskins to have problems on third downs with slot receivers catching the ball right at the first down marker."

These guys really know what they are talking about.

That is exactly what has plagued this defense all year. They arent rerouting or playing their guys tight enough. That assesment is dead on but to the defense side.

Re: Shawn Springs

I think Champ is still the best shut down corner in the league....but, um it's definitely not Mr. Springs.

Re: Shawn Springs

Does anyone remember what games Springs missed last year? I ask because I am lazy and don't want to check. At the time, I remember thinking that Springs was the keystone of the whole thing and that without his skills the schemes sort of fell apart. Just wondering.

Quite possibly the most idiotic post that I have ever seen.

Cut him? Why, because our coaches rushed him back on the practice field?

Springs missed one game v. Kansas City last year. I don't think he played against Tampa, but possibly suited up.

Re: Shawn Springs

I think the upside to having Rumph and Wright working in the system early is that when and if Springs comes back, we'll have two good nickel DB to compete during our playoff run.

Re: Shawn Springs

Yeah, I agree we have to cut Springs IMMEDIATELY to free up some cap space. Then we can cut Rogers as well to make room for the 22 rookies we need. My final idea is, since offensive lineman are cheaper than cornerbacks, maybe we can get some OLs and teach them how to be good cornerbacks. Then we may be able to get down to 11 starters (everybody playing both ways) and finally get under the salary cap. I mean, it almost worked for the Florida Marlins!
