Re: Cuts that were made tonight....

I know I will be in the minority here, but I actually feel sorry for Pinkston. I always kind of feel bad for former high picks who fall from grace. It's got to be tough to go from a 2nd rounder, to being cut, to working out while no team wants to sign you, to being unable to even hit the field in two preseason games with us.

I don't know if "sorry" is the right word, but I do think it can't be easy for any of these guys to be the best on their teams all their lives to then find themselves fighting for their jobs in front of millions.

Doug Gabriel would be a nice addition here and would seriously challenge Thrash for that 4th spot.

This is why you need Mentos. To justify your questionable problem solving skills.

Doesn't Gabriel have all sorts of attitude problems? Also... it's troubling that he couldn't make the Raiders...

Only the bonus is guaranteed. I'm sure he picked up some paychecks during camp but that's about it.

And now does this mean Corey Bradford is going to be the #5 WR, or will it be McAddley who's currently listed 5th on the depth chart?

If it's neither, then I think the Redskins should seriously consider signing Doug Gabriel (who was just waived by the Raiders). He's big, athletic, young. I think he could make a nice addition to the team.
gabriel is very talented, but i think i read somewhere, where he has some attitude issues. lord knows if they caused problems in oakland how bad they must be

Glad the rumored Lance Briggs acquisition never came to fruition:

Panicked Briggs initially reported car stolen :: CHICAGO SUN-TIMES :: Bears

What an idiot.

Well that makes me happier than ever we didn't trade for him. Another example of how athletes think they are above the law and in a way "godlike".
