Nah, I believe that they are high on Rocky given what they gave up for him last year, and if the Skins were so down on him they would have gladly offered him up to the Bears.

Re: The Last Briggs Thread? Bears Say No Deal

Not to fast with the ending, the part with the deal not lost "yet". Might just be offer one doesn't work is there an option two? Pretty good chance.

I'm also, just wondering what they are thinking about with Rocky talent wise?
LM we could part ways with in my opinion, not that it's a good idea to give them anyone!

Well I think we can all agree that Briggs is better than Rocky and Marshall and he would be an upgrade to our LB corps. I think this is just another case of our FO looking for the quick fix instead of letting their young players develop.

I really hope this is the end of it. I don't want to hear anything else about the Skins until draft day when Goodell steps up the podium and says "with the 6th pick in the NFL 2007 draft the Redskins select......".

Re: The Last Briggs Thread? Bears Say No Deal

So now that Briggs is out of the question, I'm guessing Vinny is on the phone right now with the Browns FO trying to trade up to fill another need that isn't there. Please god, don't let that trade happen either. When will we ever learn? Anybody have anything to say that can cheer me up?

That being said, the fact that they were looking at Briggs really speaks volumes as to what they think about the 6th pick.

The Skins really want out of that pick. So much so that they were willing to trade it for a player that doesn't fill a glaring need.


I agree Matty, because while there are some players there that could help us along the DL, I'm not convinced there's anyone there they want to pay #6 money too. I think they're looking for a little more "Bang for the Buck".

I think they were high on him before they drafted him. But they are not high on him now. Perhaps he makes too many mentals errors in practice which is what I think the problem is. Otherwise Holdman (who was the worst LB I have ever seen take an NFL field) would have been benched last season and this trade would have never been proposed.

Re: The Last Briggs Thread? Bears Say No Deal

What would you guys think if the Skins came back and offered up Rocky, but asked for a 3rd round pick as well?? I doubt it will happen, but I think that would be the only way that this deal gets done.

Again, I'm totally against the trade, but if we do give up Rocy, we should at least be get a another pick to make for all picks we gave up to get him in the first place.

I'd say yes if it was a 2nd rounder

I disagree I think Rocky and Lemar will do fine, and I also think the COACHING STAFF thinks highly of McIntosh and Marshall. I believe this really just boiled down to Snyder wanting to make another huge FA splash, he just can't resist the urge can he? So since Snyder probably has no idea about football, he probably thought Briggs would come over here and do great with us since he was so great in Chicago and unfortunatly it doesn't work that way, or we would've one the Super Bowl the last five years.

Makes you wonder if when Snyder said Gibbs calls all the shots he was really just saying, "Gibbs calls all the shots except when my childish urge to spend a shit-ton of money on stuff I don't need just for the hell of it takes over ."

Only b/c Chicago turned us down. I hope this is over for good now.

Thats a stupid comment about Snyder which you have nothing to back up what you said. If Snyder was that big on this deal it would have been done but as the article said it not over with yet. Lets know what we are talking about before we bash our team, owner, coaches on something that we do not even know is true. If we find out he was behind the trade then bash all you want.

Well at the meetings in Arizona the Danny did say to the media that the Skins were looking to trade for him. Obviously he wasn't against it. Whether or not it was his idea we will probably never know. But unfortunately Danny and our FO has done plenty over the past several years for us to bash.....

I think you just said everything that I was about to post.

I could see this being a draft day deal as we get more desperate, but theres also an outside chance that Rosenhaus and the Bears work out their differences and get Briggs to sign the tender under an agreement to not tag him next year sometime between now and the draft.

This trade is hardly dead, but it's good to see the chances of it happening are going down.
