I like this one because I think staying healthy is the key. Staying healthy builds a bond between players and helps consistency.

268 comp / 519 att / 3010yd/ 25 TD / 21 INT

Now ask yourself if you could live with those numbers from a first year QB?
i just hope snyder and gibbs remain patient with him

Re: Seven Steps to Redskins Renewal

I think Synder and Gibbs will. We did trade up to get him and Gibbs knows rookies need time. I think next year he will be good, Brunell just needs to guide him in the right direction.

Really, he just needs to get his completion % up. If he does that, the yards/attempt will come up with it. Know when it's smart to take the shot downfield, but just because it's 1 v 1 doesn't mean you have to make the low percentage pass. It may be the best throw, but JC should still be reading the field.

Re: Seven Steps to Redskins Renewal

Is this like AA? (Not our worthless used-to be safety, now punt block guy, but Alcholics Anonymous? (sp))

Do we have to apologize or hug anyone?

My name is JWSleep, and I've been depressed about the skins for months now...

Re: Seven Steps to Redskins Renewal

I have a hard time with #7 as Gibbs et al have done nothing to gain my trust that they can evaluate personell and make correct decision in that area.

I agree with teh other 6.

Seven Steps to Redskin Renewal

1. Admit that the 2006 Washington Redskins will not make the playoffs.

2. Admit that the 2006 Washington Redskins are not that good.

3. Admit that the 2006 Washington Redskin organization has not put the team in the best position to win football games.

4. Accept that for the remainder of the season, the 2006 Washington Redskins are in a rebuilding mode.

5. Accept that for the remainder of the season, the fans should expect improvement, not necessarily wins.

6. Accept that for the remainder of the season, Jason Campbell at times will look like a rookie.

7. Trust that Joe Gibbs and his staff will access the team's strengths and weaknesses and adjust in the offseason accordingly.
I simpy don't trust Gibbs anymore.

I remember those years very well. But back then he wasn't making the personel moves. You can also give Ritchie Petibone some credit too. W/out Ritchie does Gibbs wins 3 SB's ???

Yeah, it's hard to trust him when he's contradicted himself so many times since he's been back. They made a guy like AA the highest paid player in league history at his position but he can't even crack the 3rd string and we're supposed to have faith that they can accurately evaluate anyone?
That might be too big a leap of faith for me at this point.

Is Archuleta the only move he made? Did you mistrust him when we got Portis, Taylor, Cooley, Washington, Moss and jetissoned guys like McCants, Bowen, Gardner?

I mean yeah he's made mistakes. And chances are he will again. But it's not as if it's one bad move after another and I don't know anyone can say he can't be trusted or can't evaluate anyone

Seems to me you have some contradictions in here...more specifically,
3. Admit that the 2006 Washington Redskin organization has not put the team in the best position to win football games. and 7. Trust that Joe Gibbs and his staff will access the team's strengths and weaknesses and adjust in the offseason accordingly.

While we must trust them for the sake of continuity, i am VERY skeptical of their ability to work together- well, at this point. seems to me that this is the case study for the too many chiefs argument.

I have watched every game this year. Reason why we are losing:

1) Gibbs is a Hall of Fame Coach who decided to not call plays for the fist time in his NFL career?? (not a good move in my mind)

2) Defense looks completely soft. Carlos Rogers has been awful. Springs injury put CB depth or lack of under the radar. Why cut Walt Harris?? Why let safety go to Steelers. That guy was Sean Taylor's best friend on the team. I love Taylor but he's not where he should be after 3 years.

3) Play Calling. We beat Atlanta if we run the ball after we stop them on 4th down. We beat Philly if we run 4 straight time on the 3 yard line. We beat Tampa Bay if Williams does not call an all out blitz where Rogers gets smoked.

Hey AL!!! When in doubt, run the ball and run some more. Our offensive line has started every game this year and are by far our bright spot.

I love Gibbs but he needs to do some soul searching and get this thing right!

GO SKINS!!!!!
Welcome! Where are you located in NY?

That might be too big a leap of faith for me at this point.

I wanted to say something about this -- which is, one of the problems with blaming (or praising) Gibbs for every decision, is that, like it or not, it's very probable that a lot of those decisions were made fairly independently by guys who he has delegated a lot of authority to. When Grilliamss decided he wanted Arch Deluxe and wanted to drop a ton of cash on him, Joe ultimately had to sign off on the deal, but what it likely came down to was him saying, "do I trust and believe in this guy (Grilliamss)?" and "Does what he's saying seem so wrong that I can't allow it to happen?"

When you're a leader in a management organization like the Skins, you learn pretty quick that micromanagement and looking over the shoulders of your subordinates is a huge mistake (and a waste of time). It sabotages them, they resent it, and ultimately it just kills any leadership development. What you do is bring in good, smart people you believe in, and you let them do their thing. If they need help, you give it, and if they screw up, you gotta let them know. But you also know you can't go countermanding their instructions or you essentially undermine their leadership entirely.

I firmly believe Joe is going to have a lot to say to both Saunders and Grilliamss in the offseason, and he may very well be less willing to sign off on things they ask for, sight unseen. They probably lost a little bit of his trust, and should have to earn it back. But I also know that as a leader who wants his people to succeed, Joe is not necessarily the cause of all of this mess.

He's accountable for it, but I'm not so sure he's responsible for it. There's a big difference.
