Well maybe the coaches know something we don't. I mean they have seen Strahan up close for the last three years. He's a guy in our division you would think the teams would know hgow he'd fit. Does sound like Bruce Smith 2.0 though.

If we could make this happen for the right financials then it would be a no brainer... Strahan has enough in the tank to rotate in at DE and stay fresh this season. Plus it would be worth it to see the look on Giants fans when he dons the burgandy and Gold.
This guy hs never done that much against us. Jansen has gotten the better of him for most of his career. Yes, he has a lot of sacks, but he's not a great football player. If he had played against Jansen every game, he would have about 10 career sacks.

I do agree that Lavar inspired our team last year, by not playing for us.

Barrow, Armstead, Trotter, Deion Sanders, Dan Wilkinson, Dana Stubblefield, Duckett, Brunell, Brad Johnson, Larry Centers, David Patten, Andre Reed, Troy Vincent, Mike Rumph, Matt Bowen, Trung Canidate, Laveranues Coles, Jeff Posey, Lloyd, Randel El,

Believe me Strahan will fit on this list of under acheivers--over paid players that Snyder brought in.

Here's a list of guys we could have made a move for this year.

Darwin Walker, Kris Jenkins, Tank Johnson, Corey Simon, Alex Brown, Kevin Carter, Ian Scott
Good post.
I don't think Coles belongs in this group though...he was the best wr we had for many a moon...and he got us Moss.

btw- we can still get Tank Johnson...no one has shown interest in him and he's just sitting around doing nothing.

Re: Redskins Could Become a Suitor for Strahan?

I thought hard about Coles and he had one productive season for us. And his last he only had 1 td thrown to him by Clinton Portis for the money he recieved he underachieved. And he was our best reciever because we had Rod Gardner (Who the Redskins got instead of Moss in the first place back in 2001.)

Well, Coles was the best WR we have had in many years until Moss. The combo of receptions and yards we haven't seen since...
04- 90 rec, 950 yds. (Coles)
03- 82 rec, 1204 yds. (Coles)
02- 71 rec, 1006 yds. (Rod Gardner)
01- 57 rec, 664 yrds. (Michael Westbrook)
00- 50 rec, 653 yds. (James Thrash)
99- 65 rec, 1191 yds. (Michael Westbrook)
98- 44 rec, 736 yds. (Michael Westbrook)
97- 49 rec, 474 yds. (Jamie Asher)
96- 52 rec, 1014 yds. (Henry Ellard)
95- 56 rec, 1005 yds. (Henry Ellard)
94- 74 rec, 1397 yds. (Henry Ellard)
93- 58 rec, 638 yds. (Ricky Sanders)
92- 64 rec, 912 yds. (Gary Clark)
91- 70 rec, 1340 yds. (Gary Clark)
90- 75 rec, 1112 yds. (Gary Clark)
89- 86 rec, 1186 yds. (Art Monk)
88- 73 rec, 1148 yds. (Ricky Sanders)
87- 56 rec, 1066 yds. (Gary Clark)
86- 74 rec, 1265 yds. (Gary Clark)
85- 91 rec, 1226 yds. (Art Monk)
84- 106 rec, 1372 yds. (Art Monk)

So as you can see, we hadn't seen those kinds of numbers in terms of receptions since Art Monk in the mid 80's. Coles 03 yards we hadn't seen since Ellard in 94.
Coles was the best wr we had seen in a decade, and I would say, the best we have seen since Clark / Monk.
Also, like I said, he helped us get Moss. Moss had 84 rec, for 1483 yards.

All season?

Someone remind me, how long has training camp been going on? Oh yeah, three days.

I bet it is burning Portis up that his has missed the first few days of camp.

He's fine...he's likely not even injured.

I can't see Daniels even competing with Strahan. Strahan's not done. His production probems have been caused by injury, not his motor.

Article by yahoo. SHows how much money he actually needs. He can't retire for life and do nothing.

Looks like money is the most important thing to him right now.

If we would have drafted Moss in 2001 to begin with instead of Gardner we wouldnt be having this conversation. Coles was not the big name player we wanted him to be for the money we paid him he wasnt consistent. Plus Albert Connell also had 1100 yards that year so in 1999 was the last time we had 2 recievers have legimiate year.

With all due respect...are kidding me? Neon Deion sucked. I can't recall anything he did that was worthy of the freakin' 8 million he stole from the Redskins. I cringe at the mere mention of him in burgandy & gold.

Deion did play well here. Was he worth the $$? Probably not, especially since Brian Mitchell was shown the door to clear up the cap room for him. But that's Snyder's fault. Deion took what was offered to him. You can't blame him for that.

He has only himself to blame. Although the judge went a little overbaoard. If he is giving his ex 15 million then why does she need all that money for child support? Complete BS.

This might turn into OJ 2.

Really? Brad Johnson is probably the last good QB the Skins have had. I think Campbell will be better, but Johnson was a great get for them. The problem was the signing of Jeff George, not Brad Johnson.

Larry Centers was also a beast here. He had 544 and 600 yard receiving seasons while he was here as a fullback. By comparison, Cooley's first 2 years here, he had 1088 yards, he has had consecutive 700+ yard seasons, but throwing Centers under the bus is ridiculous. He was also a pretty damn good blocker.

As for Lloyd and Randle El, I think it's a little early to say that these were bad signings. Who knows? Jason Campbell and his ability to actually throw downfield could see these two as legit threats alongside Santana.

While I agree with the majority of your post, I disagree with some of the guys you're using to indict Dan Snyder.
