Re: Redskins Sign Fred Beasley

I'm not sure how good Beasley is now, but I definitely would not say he sucks. A couple years ago he was a premier fullback. I'm definitely curious of this signing. Sellers can block and catch, so I can't see why that would be the motivation.

Re: Redskins Sign Fred Beasley

Re: Redskins Sign Fred Beasley

Does anyone think the FO brought Beasley in just to get on Brandon Lloyd's case?? In all seriousness though Beasley is a decent pickup, he was a great FB when he was with the Niners, not to sure how much he has left in the tank, but if Sellers goes down I will feel a lot more comfortable knowing that we have a former Pro Bowl FB backing him up.

That's the interesting thing. I know Saunders had Tony Richardson in KC, but I thought I remember hearing last offseason that we were switching to more singleback formations.

Between the single back sets and the Betts/Portis 2 RB formations, I don't think the FB will play a prominent role. When we do need a FB, I don't see why Sellers can't fit the part. He's a great short yardage receiver and a load as a blocker. Only thing I can see is Schmitt getting cut and Beasley being nothing more than a backup.

I don't think we will see Betts and Portis together much. But Sellers should be in there if a FB is called for. He's a beast. Whoever the other fullback ends up being is purely a backup and special teamer. I can't imagine any situation where we wouldn't be better off with Sellers in the game if a FB is called for.

I agree 100% with everything you say about Sellers. He's one of my favorite Skins. But I've read (sorry, I have no link) a couple of times that they have sets designed with both Portis and Betts in the backfield. Think of how fun it would be to have Portis, Betts, Moss, Cooley, and Randle El all in at the same time with Campbell at the helm?? Goosebumps...

I guess I was going off what they've done up until now. But, hey, we shouldn't be afraid to try some new things. Sometimes the answer is hiding in plain sight...

Re: Redskins Sign Fred Beasley

Beasley is just going to be a backup... not sure why this would mean anything for Sellers.

Sometimes a move is just a move, why do some people have to read too far into things?

Re: Redskins Sign Fred Beasley

My sentiments exactly Matty. Everytime the Skins sign someone, Skins fans go batshit over it. The freaking sky is falling EVERY time we bring someone in except for Kendall I heard good things about that pick up. But anyone we bring in there's always a reason why we shouldn't. And then when the SKins don't adhere to what all the pundits say we need we question the team again. See the defensive line situation. The SKins pretty much stayed pat with who they had and they look like a whole new squad out there. Go figure, we really didn't NEED to bring in Okoye ? I thought that the team would implode with suckiness because that's how it was told to me. Beasley will be a back-up. I'm thinking about the Jumbo/Goal Line situations where you bring in Beasley and Sellars out there. Creating holes for the RB or one another.

Re: Redskins Sign Fred Beasley

Beasley was pretty good for the 49ers a few years back, but why get him now? I think they are taking a lot of risks getting rid of guys for injury prone vets. Our offseason was pretty good this year, now we potentially muck it up with these recent signings.

Re: Redskins Sign Fred Beasley

Fred was out of the NFL for a year. I don't see him sticking. Please don't bet on his retention after final cuts.
