while this is true you cant say that the guy wasnt a playmaker and whatever happened to the supposed bly trade and did we even sign travis fisher cause i cant find a source that says that we did

Re: ok im gonna say it, cause nobody else will....

I'd like to add that coming from a Viking Fan family I watch the Vikes alot to, they never get any pressure in the passing game either, They are very similar to us, the williams in the middle can stop the run but no outside pressure, leading to poor corner play

Then he proceeded to play so below expectation that the Vikings cut him. He is not coming back a hero. He went to a team that was supposed to be a few players away from a Super Bowl and what happened? He is not coming back on a good note.
I think Smoot is more of a classic #3 corner, not #2. IMO Smoot would have problems with a team like the Colts that have a strong #2 WR.

I couldn't agree with anything you said. Smoot will sure up our secondary and gives us another option, if Springs is not on the team. The vikings were a couple of players short of the super bowl? I've said this before, but Smoot was on our team in 2004 when our defense was top 5 in the NFL. This guy brings heart and skills to his position. We just need a defensive line that can put pressure and force turnovers. I'm sure that we can all agree on that last statement.

Re: ok im gonna say it, cause nobody else will....

I just have feeling on our team that he will be a number 2... rogers isn't showing that much promis yet, and we should be seeing something from our #9 pick by now...

Agreed tuna. But, this offseason our boy c-los will be training with D. Green and (gasp) neon deion. C-los just had the sophomore jinx this past year. I think we all expect great things from him this coming season. He just needs to stop giving the receiver a 10 yard cushion.

Well heres my problem with what your saying, does Jeremiah Trotter ring a bell, he was an average player as a Redskin, but a dominant MLB for the Eagles, NFL players have a comfort level just like any other human being. Fred Smoot openly has said he didnt like being in Minnesota, hes a Redskin, those were Joe Gibbs words, and i have a feeling that Joe Gibbs is a better judge of talent than you are. Fred Smoot is going to surprise alot of people, the sad thing is it seems you have already forgotten after two short years, that Fred Smoot became a fan favorite, not for his name, but for his heart and his play on the field. I welcome back Fred Smoot, and will be right there saying "I told you so" when he plays like the old Fred Smoot, the Redskin Fred Smoot.

Re: ok im gonna say it, cause nobody else will....

ok, apparently nobody agrees with my view on fred smoot and how i think he is a penalty machine. however, why are we still shopping for corners? why are there rumors of us getting rid of springs? is carlos rogers a #2? im sorry fellas, but im not a big fan of bringing players back after we have already gotten rid of them. i dont care what gibbs has said about him. ive seen him play. we obviously will see what happens when the season starts. but dont sit there and tell me (as some of you have) that he will be fine with being a #3. if thats the case expect a little bit of bitching on his side and rightly so.


if you guys are right and he shines then so be it. my comment came out of disgust that we havent done shit with the D-line yet. ive seen kerney go places and other free agents and im a little pissed we havent fixed anything with the D-line which imo is our weakest point.

go ahead and ban my ass if smoot leads the team in picks, it wont happen.
i would rather have made moves on the D-line first.

Depth. Smoot is a solid #2 corner and Rogers hasn't proven himself yet. Smoot is still a huge upgrade from what we had last season, and if we can keep Springs, then having Smoot, Rogers, Springs, and Taylor in the secondary shold be an upgrade for us.

If I'm not mistaken I think the first two moves we made were FLETCH & SMOOT, is that the O-LINE?

We did start with the defense were we need the most help, and hopefully will make another move or so on that side of the ball in FA the rest will be in the DRAFT (DE/DT).

I'm not sure what you were watching with SMOOT? However, most people with just a little bit of football knowledge including Coach Joe Gibbs, see a decent corner that we need badly. He has great potential to have an outstanding year!

Your point makes ZERO sense in my opinion!

first, we didn't get rid of him, he got away with a contract that was front loaded.

second, what move was there to make at D-line? kerney was the closest thing to a game changer, and he's 30 and coming off a bad year. We have lots of 30+ DLinemen, and the right move is getting a young guy that could be good and stay around a while. that's what the draft and that #6 pick are for.

while i like smooty coming back, you assessment of trotter is way off base. trotter is good in the eagles system. but in my eyes one of the most over rated players in this league.
