Adam Archuletta

I cant remember if this is true or not, but I think lovie Smith really wanted Adam to become a Bear this year. Do you think that despite his situation this year, Adam could still be considered an impact player and traded for a good price to someone like the Bears?

Re: Adam Archuletta

Traded with his current contract? Yeah right. He's got zero value, especially considering we're going to cut him in all likelihood.

Not bad money for a year's worth of work.

He has looked good blocking on punts today...

Re: Adam Archuletta

It's funny when that's the best you can say about the highest paid S in the league. Or sad. I'm not sure which yet.

Re: Adam Archuletta

I don't think he's that bad of a player, I think that if we didn't have ST, he would be the main safety, but you cant have two captains commanding one ship. I just thought that maybe someone else would see that and want him. I think that someone would be at least willing to give up a 4th rounder for him because they wouldnt pick up the signing bonus on his contract. But then again I havent been following football seriously for more than a year now, so I dont know how theses situations normally work out.

Too bad you don't work for the Bears personnel department.

No shit. You couldnt trade his ass to me to clean my room for two weeks.


In all seriousness, I think our best option with Adam is to try to maneuver a position switch. I still think hes a good football player, hes just not a good saftey. I think if you can bring him up to maybe play some weak side LB or somthing like that, it could be a good chance.

Re: Adam Archuletta

We should just ask him to redo his contract since im pretty sure he wants to play then we could trade him to the bears or we could give him like $4 million and tell him to leave us alone

Re: Adam Archuletta

there was a reason that the skins brought him here. i say give him at least one more year to see if we can utilize him the right way

Re: Adam Archuletta

Archuletta has only been effective as a safety in the NFL when he's the 8th man in the box.

He's not the right match with Taylor.

The secondary and Taylor play better when the opposite safety is more of a coverage guy.

That's what I was saying when the Skins signed him. A lot of us on this site hate on Roy Williams. I said, when we signed him, that the Skins just gave huge money to a worse version of Roy Williams. He's only ever been marginally better than Matt Bowen. The Skins should have just hung on to him instead of signing Archuletta...or Clark...hmmmmm, what a novel thought.

I agree.
I feel we are all down on Arch because he hasn't fit our mold and we've asked him to do waaaay too much in pass coverage. Adam has NEVER been a great pass defender, he's a run stopper. He'd be great in our system if we actually had CB's and a safty that liked to pass protect as well. Taylor and Arch together was not a good idea. Ronnie Lott was one of the best hitters in all the NFL, but he played pass defense. Both our safties don't do both.

I actually like the idea of moving him to LB. (someone brought that up) He loves to hit the hole and knock people senseless. He has good speed (not great) and his size is 6'0" 223 lbs, Zach Thomas is 5'11" 228. Not a big difference.
With our HORRIBLE lb's (minus Washington) we could use him!!!
