Re: Offseason personnel strategy

the one point on your list that has me baffled is getting rid of quality coaches. this might be a transitional year for the coaching staff, but after getting settled in, and learning their place around here, why get rid of some of them? is there any you think cant coach?

Re: Offseason personnel strategy

The talk about the skins losing Pierce is a bit overstated. I remember Gibbs saying the deal they offered him was about the same. The guy wanted to go.

The deal wasn't the same, the Giants offered Pierce more up front money which was the deal killer.

How can a Warpath member discuss the salary cap and link to SOMEONE ELSE'S cap sheets?????????????? Is this another April Fools joke from Tafkas??? Oh the shame and humiliation, I'm not sure I can go on...

Seriously though, the link you gave is for PCinOZ's cap sheets. He provides the sheets for Scout.com and has the most reliable info anywhere. But the link you gave is an old one (March 28th). The new link for PCinOZ's cap sheets is PC's Redskins Salaries and Contracts Pages.

But why go elsewhere when all your cap dreams can come true right here:

It's just not right CC. All your hard work and people aren't even looking at your sheets.

Seriously peeps, we've got great cap info right here.

Re: Offseason personnel strategy

I read it, good stuff, very slick. I can't believe more people haven't read or commented on it. I guess folks have a tough time with numbers I guess you have to spell things out for them so the appreciate the significance of the figures.

the skins tried to haggle him and offered him about $1mill less, so he got pissed they were trying to cheap out on him after overpaying so many others from outside the orginization and left (quite bitter).

Re: Offseason personnel strategy

Pierce shouldn't have gone all season saying he was a "Redskin for life" or whatever it was he said exactly. Good luck to him though

do you want to keep jackson when he's pouting and refusing to coach his players, while insisting on seperate safety meetings? dead weight is worse than an empty seat in some cases. and what exactly does don breaux do? gibbs has soo many people working under him now and he delegated way too much, which caused some of our current problems.

If you read up on some areas of microsoft and the release of vista, you'll see lots of examples of the problems that overstaffing can bring (instead of needing 2 people to agree on a layout, now there are 17 people that must agree, hold meetings to agree on those agreements and field questions and objections to possible interpretations). at some point bureaucracy swallows efficiency.

I'm still bitter about Pierce. Of course you (TAFKAS) would know better than any of us, but I thought he could have given the skins a more realistic chance of re-signing him.

He was undrafted, the organization gave him the opportunity to blossom, he had a great season (and at that time who knows if he was a one year wonder or not), and then he expects the skins to break the bank on him. Then after he signs with the Giants he talks garbage about the team that gave him his first opprotunity.

He just seems like an ungrateful prick to me.

I don't really know much about what happened with Pierce.

in his eyes, he came in when the team had no other options, he gave a pro-bowl performance after waiting his turn on the bench, and as soon as someone offered him a contract, his team and his "family" that called him a "core redskin" spat in his face by low-balling him and telling him he wasn't worth it, and that he was easily re-placeable. he didn't have to give the skins the option to match that deal, but he said he would and he kept his word. You can't really be mad at the player for taking the better offer.

and i don't really like his constant s&*$ talk either, but he wouldn't be talking like that if he didn't care or didn't want to be here.

i agree with what you are saying, but with coach gibbs, there had to be a method behind his madness
