Jeff George was probably the worst. As bad as Canidate was, I mean after that hit he took from Bowen the handwriting was on the wall, George was worse. A.) He wrecked team chemistry as he was Danny's choice and Norv was forced to play him. He's like a stripper, he may look amazing but there's no way you can really live with him (apologies to those who date strippers). B.) He was replaced by Tony Banks, who himself was fresh off being cut by the Cowboys. And I applauded when they made this move, because while our pass protection was about as solid as hot jello George made no attempt to even pretend that he was going to stand in there. C.) I remain convinced that the 2000 Skins could have won the Super Bowl, they were just snakebit by Danny's questionable pickup of George. They were fresh off the NFC East title, had one of the better offenses in the league and a promising defense with Ray Rhodes aboard. D.) George led the Raiders to the playoffs and they had the #1 offense and no backup in sight and they let him go without so much as a thought. Then we slide in, and instead of paying Brad Johnson very reasonable money we sign George to make more than the guy who led us to the playoffs. Great, but it's the Danny way.

Does it show that I'm a little upset about that season?

As Curmudgeon has pointed out, Portis was acquired via trade, as were some other players mentioned here, Brunell, Canidate, Wilkinson. But I got the impression that the general gist of this thread was about off-season pickups whether via trade or free agency

I'll forever hate the Jeff George move.

The '99 team had something going, they were building towards something. Snyder messed it all up by bringing in George. BJ was coming off a Pro Bowl season, he had just taken the 'Skins back to the playoffs for the first time in forever, and how is he rewarded? Snyder brings in his golden boy Jeff George and "hints" to Turner that he wants George to start.

I was a big fan of BJ before he came to Washington so I was pumped when we got him, even though he practically rolled into town in a wheelchair. I figured we finally had a QB we could hang our hats on for 5 years or so.

Thanks alot Danny!

If I could have a little one on one with Snyder that's all I would want to ask him, "What were you thinking by bringing in George?", well actually two questions, "How did it feel to watch Johnson win the Super Bowl?"

what about Gerald Riggs!!!!! lol aww man, he sucked... turned into our 3rd n goal on the one yd line guy

and i would say a very good pick up would be terry allen... we took a chance on a guy who had both knees reconstructed and was the most productive guy on the team for 2 years

I'll only go for this season for now.

The Best Pickup was Portis, but if were going Free Agent, I'll have to go with Marcus Washington. I think this guy is gonna be a absolute monster within the next year or two. Him and Arrington should provide us with a big 1/2 punch from the outside. Shawn Springs could prove to be a exellent offseason pickup to replace C. Bailey, but we have to see if he can stay healthy first.

Worst: It's hard to tell now, but I'm going to say Brunell, just cause I'm such a Ramsey Fan, but I do like Brunell so who knows. Shawn Springs could also prove to be a waste of money, he is the biggest question mark pickup of our offseason, if you ask me.

brad johnson was in no way a bad pickup, he went to a pro bowl, then threw him out for no reason, oh wait, snyder liked georges strong arm better. but, didnt we trade a #1 pick for him?
