Re: Randle El Signing Shows Why Skins Can't Compete

To be honest, I'm not even quite sure I understand the meaning of the topic of this thread, ie "Randle El Signing Show's Why Skins Can't Compete" What does the signing of Randle El have to do with the teams inability to compete? The reason the team can't/don't/won't/compete is because of their inconsistency, which we've witnessed since the pre-season. It's not that they can't, it's that they haven't, at least this year. That does not neccessarily mean we will continue down the same path.

As for Randle El there's two things I would like to see, one he can control, and the other, the coaches have to help him with. One, when he field's punts, I'd like to see him do more of what he did in the Colts game. He fielded the punt, and went straight ahead, split two defenders, and took it to the house. No more running east & west. Two, I would like to see the coaches find more creative ways of getting him the ball aside from the obvious. There are more ways to get him involved aside from the ocasional option pass, and the routine reverse. It's up to the coaches to get that acomplished.

all along we knew that ARE was a bit overpaid. that's just how we roll. we sign no one unless it's for 30million. you should go apply as waterboy. he's still somewhat productive though so it's cool. it's one thing to pay the man and have him do shit.

Re: Randle El Signing Shows Why Skins Can't Compete

People get so hung up with the numbers, all that really matters are the years and the signing bonus. And with the way we constantly re-work deals no contract is set in stone. There is constantly a 3 year plan in motion.

I agree but again the bonuses hurt us, atleast when I say overpaid I am talking signing bonus, because their yearly salary is trash.

Re: Randle El Signing Shows Why Skins Can't Compete

the way some of us whine around here, you would think the money is coming out of their pockets. i would much rather have an owner spending the cap money, at least trying to get better

I said that exact same thing here a couple years ago. We haven't heard Dan Snyder complain about his spending yet. Maybe he will if he begins to see empty seats at Fed Ex on Sunday's.
