It really does amaze me that we skins fans seem to always think our bench guys are super studs. We've already annointed HB Blades, and Starz. And others that have had a chance to prove themselves and didn't, ie: Thrash, Ramsey, etc. I love the positive vibes we give off for these guys, but we can be extremely unreasonable. Thrash as the #2??? That would be horrible for us.
In case you've missed it, with the exception of 2000 where he had 50 catches for 653 yards and only 2 td's for us, he has had a total of 58 catches for 779 yards in a Redskins uni in 6 years...plus a total of only 2 tds during that span! (97-99 and 04-06) Even after he signed that big contract in Phily, he still only produced a career high of 63 catches and 833 yards, and that was 6 years ago!!!
Trust me when I say, that if we need Thrash to be our #2, our season is over.

Re: Could Thrash Become #2 WR

When I saw this thread, the first thing I thought of is he could be the answer to Question #3!



As in the #3 WR!

Why does it matter who plays the No. 2 receiver?

Good point. I guess as long as our #2 can block effectively, come through when called upon to make big plays and be enough of a threat to take some heat off our #1, then it shouldnt matter who it is, right?

Right. And outside of the blocking qualification, I don't think too many receivers in this league aren't 2nd receiver quality.

Since Thrash is the best blocker out of the three...ya know why not him? Not really sure it makes a difference anyway. If Campbell hits any of the three in the hands, they are probably going to catch it.

Agreed. Except Lloyd. Remember the TB game last year? First play I think, he was WIDE and JC hit him and ho dropped the damn thing. Screw Lloyd. I understand that he is athletic and catch make great, one handed catches and whatever but, until he performs HERE, IN WASHINGTON, I say Thrash starts above him, period.

A.R.E He has just as good as a rhythm with JC.Plus hes younger and faster and can give us more plays to do.So if we don't have a 2nd string WR this ear than GJ With us not trading are picks.

Re: Could Thrash Become #2 WR

ARE is a beast. IMO, we should direct snap the ball to him 3-5 times a game just to fuck with defenses. Have him throw it once in a while, endaround, you name it. Used effectively, ARE could make ANY D piss down their leg.

Moss: 4.31
Champ Bailey: 4.42
That's one of the reasons he's a gunner.
Unless his legs are totally trashed I think he is terribly under-used. He almost never makes a bonehead play.
But I must be wrong since nobody ever responds to my posts about this.
And check out that last giants game from last year. Thrash blew past everyone to catch that guy on the first fumble. I'm not saying he shouldn't have been faster than the fat boy running back the fumble, but look at how he comes flying past all the other Redskins from off the screen to get there. The guy still has plenty of speed. Especially for a #2/#3 receiver.

Re: Could Thrash Become #2 WR

I personally think Thrash would be a great guy to put in the slot on those deep routs because he seems to excel at that or put him in on short crossing routs because he can take a hit.

Re: Could Thrash Become #2 WR

I would rather have Thrash in there than one of the other guys under-achieving. We know what we can expect from him and if he is in there every week for the whole season, I know we could get 50 catches out of him. Can we get 50 catches out of LLoyd? I dunno.

This seems to be the big stopper. There is NO reason really he couldnt be the number 2, because the players that are there for those positions are underachieving. I reiterate, F*** B. Lloyd.

Hey. Brandon. Catch a TD. Stop rapping, take the...thats right,...take the headphones off and catch the f***ing ball dill weed. Dude. Your almost as useless as a Mark Brunell.

Llyod has to prove himself to me.

Re: Could Thrash Become #2 WR

I agree about Lloyd. Antwaan actually started to produce when someone could actually get him the ball. I really think Antwaan will be a big factor for us this year. I'm still not sold at all on Lloyd and I think Thrash will have a bigger year than him again.

If Thrash has better stats as the end of the year the Lloyd, I nominate Lloyd for "Douche-bag Of The Year" award.

Dont worry. He's a shoo-in...

and coming in a close second...THIS!
