What if...

I was feeling pessimistic about the Redskins lack of personnel management and I thought to myself, we are really only a few moves away from being a really well-rounded talented team -

I would content that if we had just made a few moves, we would be real contenders this year:

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?

Re: What if...

Second-tier moves I would like taken back:

1. Re-sign Ryan Clark
2. Re-sign Antonio Pierce
3. Draft Okoye instead of Landry (provided we have Clark at safety)

Re: What if...

What if the Eli decided to stay on the Chargers?

What if Jordon went before Bowie?

These questions are kind of stupid because you can't just think like that. You have to make the decision at the time with the best information and analysis, but things don't always workout the way you think they will. You can however learn from past mistakes in analysis, but that is all. You can't sit and bitch about how one player turned out this way and then turn it to bash the Skins front office.

Re: What if...

Sure I can. This is a bulletin board. Conjecture is what we do here.

For instance, I can ponder, what would have happened if you weren't born with a brain deformity.

Ummm.....I would most definitely take Landry over any defender in this years draft. I've seen him on TV, and I've seen the kid live, he's bad ass.

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

I guess I could ponder how this board could have been infinitely better if you had never joined.

Good comeback.

If all the above was true we still would not be going to the SB. Sorry to say.

Re: What if...

Before you get all offended, I just think this thread is a rather lame attempt to vent your anger at the Redskins for making those moves.

What if Asthon Kutcher had told that lady that there was a M-8o in her mailbox?

Re: What if...

In retrospect it always seems like we should have done this and that, but I feel that a good amount of decisions are made with quite a bit of knowledge and deep analysis. This is truly an illogical way of presenting you qualms about our front office.

You should drift back towards reality.

This from a guy whose signature reads "Rhiana has a really big forehead...I would have to bag that."

Oh yes the typical and random cheap shot a signature which has nothing to do with this thread or anything I have said. Stop derailing your argument and actually explain to me why what you are saying is rational or logical.
