Fair enough. What I'm really trying to express through this thread is a sense that the Skins front office actually hasn't done a terrible job because I think they are only a few moves away from being a very competitive team.

But I can live with all the other what ifs....

What about the whole youth movement thing.

What if I shorted stocks yesterday and went long today? I will say that I was allways againts Rogers since we just replaced a qaulity corner (Smoot) with a younger more expensive but possible better corner. Also what if we kept Lavar, possiblly going for repeat SB this year (I miss the guy)?

If you are saying that then I guess I did not interpret you correctly. I thought you are just throwing out ifs and buts to talk crap about the Skins.

For all we know, in a few years we could all be praising the moves that this FO has pulled off over the last few years.

You want to say "what if..." well what if by 2010 the following comes true:
-Guys like Golston, Montgomery, and Blades are seen as huge draft steals, a la Tom Brady
-Brandon Lloyd lives up to his potential and becomes the next Chad Johnson
-Antonio Pierce weighs 314lbs and is out of the league due to complications with diabetes
-Amobie Okoye had been to the Lindsay Lohan Memorial Rehab Clinic 3 times
-Joe Gibbs re-retires after winning his 4th Super Bowl ring
-Vinny C wins the NFL Exec of the year (does the NFL even have one of those)
-The cowboys go 0-16 two years in a row

man, it IS fun to ask "what if."

Re: What if...

What if the Skins sign Ray Carruth?

...Score. Nothing to scare a few dudes like having a killer on the field.

Juke. Spin. SHANKED.

1) We've already talked about this
2) This is textbook nonsensical
3) Who honestly cares, let's talk football. We are where we are, and why don't we focus on our pre-season game tomorrow. This isn't the off season anymore.

This thread sucks... and should head straight to downtown lockville.

1. Drafted Shawn Merriman instead of Carlos Rogers
2. Re-signed Dockery
3. Not made the Lloyd and Duckett trades and used picks for depth

If we had simply made these moves I think we would be challenging for a super bowl this year. . .

I'm curious to know what you think about this, and also, what other moves would you like to take back if you could?

While on the surface I can see you point, but you are failing to see the butterfly effect here. You never know what could have actually happened had these things changed.

ps- resigning Dockery would have been MORONIC at best considering how much Buffalo paid him.

Re: What if...

Just noticing this thread. Locking it

To be clear though, I'm not locking it because of the topic (although I do find it a tired topic), I'm locking it because two of you have forgotten a certain guideline:

"Perhaps the most important guideline of this forum is this, please treat your fellow forum members with the utmost respect at all times, NO EXCEPTIONS. Personal attacks will not be tolerated. If you cannot voice your thoughts and opinions with respect and thoughtfulness towards your fellow forum members, please find another forum to post on. "
