Yup, there isn't a single player on D who someone could say is indispensible. I just don't understand this whole, "blow up the whole roster, everyone sucks, i hate ____, f ______." Unfortunately, you don't get to hit the "reset" button in the NFL. We've tried blowing up our roster in the past and it's gotten us exactly where we are. I say work with what you've got and make a few minor adjustments to scheme and personnel.

Re: Positions

I thought Marshall had shoulder surgery in the off season too. I think B. Maas mentioned that Sunday. He hasn’t looked the same as last year, but before we are ready for a new Mlb, remember that in this D, he calls the plays. I think we’ll have to hope that Marshall will get better. K. Campbell looks good at times, but wasn’t that good when he filled in as a starter. Who knows, maybe he can win the job in camp.

Re: Positions

Regarding AA, let's remember that he's had major problems learning this D from his natural safety spot. Now some people want him to switch positions and start all over again?? No thanks.

I was thinking the same thing Matty. But, I simply don't know what we are going to do about him. We can't afford to cut him. We can't afford to keep him as a backup safety. So, what are we to do with him? I would not greet moving him to OLB with any enthusiasm, but I don't like the status quo either.

Re: Positions

I wouldn't tinker with any of the starting personnel on offense. I do, however, think we need to start building young depth on the O-line (a backup RT who can eventually replace Jansen, for example). I also think we need to find a good blocking TE.

On defense, I think anyone can make the case to add a #2 corner, perhaps a SS, a DT, a DE, and an OLB. But, I would oppose adding more than 3 starters on D and would like to keep it to 2 new starters if possible.

I think you have to hope that alot of his problems were due to being slow in picking up the system and they can get him coached up and get his confidence back next season. I don't think he's a totally lost cause, but the defensive coaches definitely have their work cut out for them.

Re: Positions

I think we might need to add two corners considering rogers struggles and springs' age and succeptibility to injury

Re: Positions

Mcintosh is our Starting OLB next year...
Marshall is a good MLB.
Last year Ray Lewis was complaining that the Ravens didnt have good Defensive Tackles to soak up the blockers so he couldnt make plays. I think thats part of marshalls problem this year. Salave'a and Griffin have been injured all year.
Marshall is only going to be as good as our defensive tackles.

archuletta is another problem. I think we can use him as a hybrid LB on passing downs.
Next year I think he will play alot better.
After he signed his monster contract he started hanging out at the playboy mansion and started banging the hottest girl ever, That has to affect him in some way.
alot of his problems are mental errors. Im supprised GW started him in game one.

Re: Positions

I say keep the players and fire the scouting department. Whoever recommended AA & Carter needs to be caned at Redskins Park while wearing a diaper and doing the Flavor Flav as "Don't Believe the Hype" plays in the background.

Luckily, I think this year has been an anomaly, nothing at all has gone right. Two tipped balls for tds, in two weeks?

oh, and Sean Taylor AND the half pipe stay put.

Good point about the DT injuries. I still long for Antonio Pierce though. As for McIntosh, why shouldn't he be starting NOW? Has Holdman done anything to warrant his continued status as a starter. It's time for Williams to work Rocky into a few packages to see what we have there.

Re: Positions

Marshall isnt terrible at MLB, but nonetheless we still need to get rid of him. The MLB is the heart of the defense, he should be the strongest and most physical person, neither of which is Marshall even close to being. I have never seen him knock anyone out, but I have seen him blow lots of tackles. The only way I see Marshall remaining a redskin is by being a backup, but odds are that someone will pay more for him when he becomes a FA in a year.

I don't MLBs are the strongest players on defense (see defensive line). I could care less whether our MLBs knock people out. I haven't seen Marshall "blow" a lot of tackles, but I have seen Taylor "blow" a lot of tackles despite being a guy who can knock people out.

I prefer "missing" tackles, as opposed to "blowing tackles." When you said someone "blows tackles," I think of something that I don't care to think about.

Re: Positions

I decided to look at the highest-ranked-D's in the NFL this year to try and establish some sense of what that type of team looks like.

1. They draft well, and develope their draft picks into premier players.
- The Bears have only ONE starter that they didn't draft
- Ravens only have three starters that they didn't draft
- Jags have only four (including a player who spent a year on the
bench for the lions)

2. Their D-line can get pressure on the QB.
- The Bears and Ravens have the best TO differential, but their int.'s come from all over, safeties, cb's, lb's, and even de. It seems to be less that the secondary is making plays, and more that the line is getting pressure as both teams have at least 14.5 sacks just from their d-line

3. Their MLB is a beast.
-This point probably has the least to do with their success and our failure, but Id rather have a Urlacher or Ray Lewis then Lemar Marshal any day
