Ditto. Last year, our biggest problem was the secondary. Now we have the deepest secondary (with quality backups out the wazoo). Also, our draft went very well...Landry will make an impact and he was the best defensive player available when we picked, plus we picked up a couple of good LBs who could've been drafted much higher.

Let's also not forget about Campbell's work and dedication to be better in the offseason...I bet he's going to have a big year.

Let's wait and see which Randy shows up before saying that. He can singlehandedly rip that locker room apart.

Re: Best Offseason

If Moss does cause problems, Belichick can cut him. . . . The genius of Belichick/Pioli is that all of their offseason signing brought minimal risk to the team. Moss can get cut at any time with no financial penalty for the Pats. Stallworth has the equivalent of a 1 year, $3M contract. The only "big money" signing was Adalius Thomas, a perfect fit for the Pats' defensive system.

Big contrast with the moron twins (Snyder and Cerrato). But, then again, that's why the Pats are perennial winners, and Washington is not.

Re: Best Offseason

I like the fact that we were not headlining the offseason, which we typically do. Lets see if the solid improvements we made produce post season results, instead of preseason championships.

So I'm guessing that your a NE fan? Or just one of those skin fans that have nothing positive to say.

Offiss is going to be pissed that you've stolen his other moniker

the patriots biggest move wasnt a stroke of genius by anyone. it was drew bledsoes injury. and bellicek is such a genius that the browns won how much when he coached there? they have had their day in the sun. randy moss is a big time reach. hasnt been productive for the last 2 seasons. and thomas is 32, alittle bit old, and maybe a product of a good baltimore scheme

Re: Best Offseason

If you look at the world through burgandy and gold colored glases, then the Skins had the best offseason in the league - - and maybe in the history of all of football too. Except maybe for that great offseason when they signed Deion Sanders ...

Otherwise you have to appreciate what the Patriots did this year; and you have to appreciate what the Broncos did this year; and you have to appreciate what the Eagles did this year.

And if one were to take off the burgandy and rose colored glasses for just a brief moment and look at those three teams, you'd also notice that they are starting from a far higher level of achievement than the Redskins are.

I think that the Redskins did a whole lot better in the 06/07 offseason than they did in previous ones - - particularly the highly hyped but hugely disappointing 05/06 offseason. But the Skins didn't do the "best in the league". And there are still "areas of concern" on this roster. And the Skins are not shoo-ins to make it to the Super Bowl in 2008.

If you believe they are shoo-ins for the Super Bowl as the NFC representative, go and bet the mortgage money on that proposition in Las Vegas right now. You can get 20-1 at the moment that the Skins will be in the Super Bowl game - - not that they'll win it but they'll be there. Put a cool 50K on that prop and you'll be a millionaire in less than a year... Or not.

I'll not make that wager just yet. I'll wait to see what the "product" looks like on the field for the first 4-6 games. But if you REALLY think there are no weak spots on this roster, go for it. And Mazel Tov!!

I think they had an overhyped offseason. Sure it was good, but Cleveland had the best IMO.
Joe Thomas (drafted)
Brady Quinn (drafted)
Jamaal Lewis
Seth McKinney
Eric Steinbach
Robaire Smith
Tim Carter (upgrade from Northcutt)
Mike Adams

Not only did they fill holes, they filled those holes with top notch talent for the most part. That is hands down the best offseason the Browns have EVER had, and hands down the best this year.

Moss isn't ripping NE's locker room apart. They have too many strong vets. He needs them more than they need him. They got Stallworth, A. Thomas and Walker. Plus Chad Jackson hasn't even got in the mix.

Who has the oline depth we have? Dare I say it, we actually have some QB depth. The only place I see any depth issues is DE and DT, but we still have 3 quality DE's and we have only have two quality DT's. We have some other DT's Salavea and Montgomery that could provide quality depth and a few DE's that may provide some in Demetric Evans and this guy Hickman.

I honestly do not see a hole on this team at all. Our starting 22, is as good as anyones in the entire NFL.


We have the coaches and their systems in place. This is going to be our year. We are going to wear teams down with Portis & Betts, beat them over the top with Moss and in the middle with Cooley.

We are going to stuff the run with Fletcher, stop the pass with a healthy Springs, Rogers, and Taylor and showdow any playmaker with Landry. As well as blitz from every direction imagible.

Plus everyone is sleeping on us. Am I the only one who sees this? Why don't we start looking at the good of this team instead of nitpicking?
Wow, this guy had a big ole' glass of Redskins' koolaid didn't he? Yeah, that's right, we will "secondary" you to death. This sounds like a good signature, "We will secondary you to death". What do you guys think?

I can get it. I am not 17. I am 18. But no one ever cards me when I walk into a store. But, I can buy him a 6 pack. Beer doesnt get me drunk.
