Here is my take:

1) I agree, I don't like giving up the second rounder...but a) since Champ would have been out of here for nothing at some point, I can live with getting a potential 2,000 yard RB in return. b) I'm hoping the Skins move someone to get the 2nd (or a 3rd rounder) back and c) the bottom line is we're getting an awesome offensive weapon and I can overlook the pick going.

2) We didn't have to do the contract, but I'm glad we did. This means Portis won't bring any baggage or negative feelings about getting his contract worked out. We're showing we wanted him here, he's got to like that and be enthusiastic to play here.

3) Is Kearse really someone to go ape over? If he's healthy he'd be a great pickup, but with his injury problems there might be other options out there...maybe the Skins have already passed him over...who knows?

4) I'm going to trust that the Redskins know what they're doing with the Cap.

I am sort of hoping (sort of because I LOVE Taylor) that we trade down to grab Will Smith or Kenechi Udeze in the middle of the first round instead of getting Kearse. I think two good DTs like Cornelius Griffin and Rod Coleman will help our pass rush. Udeze and Smith are pass rush specialists and though they are going to be rookies, I have VERY mixed feelings about getting Kearse in FA.

Hopefully the Skins will protect themselves with Kearse by having an incentive based bonus option (i.e. he's got to start in 14 games per season to get 100% of the bonus) if they do pick him up.

I don't undrstand how some people are worried about the ramifacations of this Portis deal on the salary cap 4 or 5 years down the road...are you people kiding me??? we have made the playoffs once in 12 years, haven't even sniffed them for the past 3. so our offense picks up a 22 year old franchise back who is only the 3rd player to rush for 3,000 yards out the gate and some people don't like it??????

We picked these players up, and still managed to be $13m under the cap...stop worrying about 4-5 years form now and lets make a run at another Super Bowl while we still have Gibbs to lead us there. I'll worry about the future after I finish my glass of champagne while looking at Gibbs hoist the Lombardi Trophy over his head

as far as freeing up cap room, does anyone know if any progress has been made for getting samuels to restructure his contract or his his agent still saying nothing's changing until ramsey is traded? we need to free up atleast 4-5 million from his 8+ million dollor cap figure this year. I think we honestly won't have to pay Kearse an extrodinary amount of money and I think some people are not really seeing how much he wants to play for Williams again. I mean he was talking about signing with him before this past season began and I think that bargaining chip will help out immensely. and if that fails winstrom is cheaper and only a slightly lower grade of talent, leaving cap room to sign some of the underrated tackles like coleman and smith. and anyone making the comparisions to portis' and davis' contract a few years ago need to remember that davis' was only one year longer but over 40 million more in the contract. and that was when davis was in his late 20's if I remember right. the cap figures will probably be nowhere similar and like it was said on here before, because he was given this contract when it didn't need to be done should show Portis he is wanted by the organization and might be more open to redoing his contract down the road if need be.

I completely agree. There is so much parity in the league and every year a new team emerges, lately though it's never the Redskins. Why not make a run now? We shouldn't be worried about what might happen to Portis and his contract five or six years down the road.

Would anyone not be willing to trade a Super Bowl title for cap problems 4-5 years down the road??

That being said I don't think there will be significant cap problems down the road. Snyder has been spending like this since he got here, and we were supposed to already be in cap hell. Yet when you take a look around the league, there are many teams in much, much worse shape cap wise year in and year out. And the 'Skins are sitting here at $11M under. Go figure.

If we won a Super Bowl once in the next 3 years, and made the playoffs a couple times around then, that would be well worth the cap trouble in 4-5 years. I just want to see this team win a superbowl.

Good point Matty. The man is trying to do everything within his power to win. You can't fault him for that.

I'd blow up the team in 2005 if it meant a Super Bowl victory this year. That's what they play the games for. Just my opinion. It's been a long time and I'm hungry.

I agree Ghost. If we won a superbowl next year, I could deal with another 5 years of horseshit. I just want to see this team win once, I would ride that thing for all its worth. I already have my vision. During hte game im gonna get two bottles of champaign and carve myself a lambardi trophy and put them on the side. After we win that MF'er , im going to town with the champaigne.
