Sorry for the confusion.
I really don't understand the pure hatred for Arch. So the man didn't fit our system, that is more an issue of our front office and coaching than Arch himself. The man is talented, but he wasn't at all what we needed. It's not like Arch hated us or said anything nasty about us, it was just the wrong team for him.

Yeah the money brought him here. ON a side note I feel that Landry is the perfect complement for Sean Taylor.

We'll see. I reserve myself to those thoughts now. I want to see them in actual action. (that's regular season action...preseason means jack-squat)(and that comment is dedicated to the man living in a van down by the river)

i disagree with this. i saw a bunch of rams games( because my brothers a fan) and archuleta was the same kind of player there. pretty good up in the box, but couldnt cover me. im not sure what the skins saw in him that made them think he would fit here

Yeah he did in St.Louis. Archuleta was one of the best safeties while in STL. That's why it was a big deal. He killed under Lovie in St.Louis and he will do it in Chicago. Archuleta is a beast when used right.

Re: Adam Archuleta to Start

I'm sure "the leak" will bounce back under Lovie.

He's always been overrated and he was never a cover safety. We definitely got burned on him, not sure if it was a case of the Skins not doing their homework or if he just stunk it up for whatever reason. Either way he's gone, best of luck to him. I hope we torch him when we play Chicago.

I'm just be glad we off loaded his dead weight onto someone else
It's gonna be fun December 6th, to see how he does against us. I hope GW suggests a couple nice plays to Al that burned AA in the past.

I'm talking HGH by the way or something that up until now was basically undetectable.
HGH doesn't make you run faster. Just leans you up. So I don't think that has anything to do with it.

He just wasn't a good fit in GW's defense. That's the bottom line.

I'm not sure what you're disagreeing with. He was very good for St. Louis...that's not really a debate. No one ever said he was a good cover corner. We all knew he wouldn't bring that to the table. The fact is, the Rams knew it, and played him that way. He's a GREAT run stopper (Ie: Taylor, which makes two run stoppers at safety useless).
Any safety tandem will work well with one being a cover, and the other being a stopper. Arch will succeed in any system that he can be that stopper. Unfortunately for him, we already had that guy.

I do agree with you...I fail to see what the Skins saw in him to make him successful here.

I was referring to Matt Foley, the motivational speaker...ie: Chris Farley on SNL.

I really dislike Arch because of the things he said about the Redskins organization to the media. He wasn't a team player and even if he got a raw deal he's not going to win my favor going one on one with Gibbs. Personally I don't think he got a raw deal i think he underperformed when a lot of people thought he wouldn't
