The Return Of Cb Stability

I just watched the interview with Fred Smoot and I am more excited about his return that any new signing we could have. This dude is not just another player on the field. He's the fans favorite and he knows it. Many forget that he led in INTs for three seasons as a Redskin. He knows this system, and will be able to play as he says," My emotional style of football." WELCOME BACK FREEEEEEEEEEEEED SMOOT!

it's been a very good FA period. safe moves, but the right ones. good non moves too.

Time for Rogers to get to work or he may lose his starting job.

Re: The Return Of Cb Stability

I remember when Champ, Darrell, and Smoot were lined up back there, and I never thought any of them could be torched. When Darrell retired, still very few deep plays. Then when Champ left...yeah I think we need more stability. Springs is about 90 percent of Champ. Lets face it, we'll never EVER find another shut down corner like Darrell, and this may be stretching it, but even a Champ Bailey. Champ should be if not already one of the 100 greatest redskins. Fisher should be signed, and see if we can't trade in the draft for a guard and one more quality secondary guy. Draft later for quality (not superstar) but quality dl and ol. With Fletcher, Smoot, Springs, and Taylor, I'm sure we could get that blitz back without all the DL help. Bring Rogers down for those CB blitzes on Third and First downs, and let Taylor and (that one more s we need) take care of being torched, because you know adam crapuleta can't cover a camel in the desert.

Re: The Return Of Cb Stability

thing is we have stability at the moment but springs could be gone in the next couple years we will be right back to where we started. We need to draft a young corner so that we have stability in the future no just for one season. We should draft leon hall so that by the time springs leaves we are still stacked at corner.

ummmm we did find another corner like darrel green, he was even better, his name was champ bailey. and like idiots we traded him away for a fan favorite (i hate that term) in portis. check out the signature below.

So will be stacked at corner and still have no depth on the DL, depth at corner does nothing when the defensive line cant get any pressure

Re: The Return Of Cb Stability

i reject the notion that our DL lacks depth. we all know what cornelius can do, Carter came along during the season, daniels had 8 sacks just a year ago, wynn and evans give us good depth, and we spent late round draft picks on Golston and Montgomery last year to give us increased depth a long with salave'a. So with development of our younger players we have plenty of depth. And in greg williams system pressure on the quarterback usually comes from blitzing. We were unable to get that pressure because we had to hang back into coverage more often to help our vunerability in the secondary. So the in all actuality depth at corner does allow us to get increased pressure on the quarterback.

Re: The Return Of Cb Stability

I see the starters as Rogers as our #1, and Smoot as our #2. We need to realize we can't have it both ways. We can't build through the draft and then expect our players to be NFL superstar caliber. Rogers is a damn good player, he had a couple bad games, he had a couple great games! Get off the man, he's only been in the league for two seasons! I also think we move Springs to safety when those two are on the field as starting corners. Gives us quite a ball-hawking secondary.

yeah definately the dumbest trade ever, we really should have kept a guy that we offered the same exact contract that denver gave him and he still wouldnt sign, i wish people would get this through there heads, Champ did not want to be here anymore, he said that and had no interest in negotiating with washington. We did not want to get rid of Champ, Dan offered him everything that he wanted as far as contracts are concerned and he told the organization that he was not interested in being a Redskins anymore so we took what we could get for him, and just so you know we have had the same amount of playoff appearences with Portis on our roster as we did when we had Champ on our roster

Can Branch keep his weight under control? They don't want another Sean Gilbert or Dan Wilkinson! Take Anderson.
It will be nice to have some stability at CB. Hopefully Smoot will work with Rogers on technique and catching the DAMN ball!

Why would you want Anderson, hes not even the best DE in the draft, that belongs to Gaines Adams, taking Anderson at 6 is a big reach, Branch is a run stuffer, we need that so Brandon Jacobs doesnt take up were Tiki left off and start rushing for 200 yards on us every game
