New year, same role for Archuleta

He's back on the pine:

This was supposed to be "The Game" for Adam Archuleta -- his chance for revenge against a Redskins organization he believed wronged him during his brief stay last season.

Instead, Archuleta finds himself in the same undesirable situation.

Re: New year, same role for Archuleta

I heard this last night on CC sports. Looks like his career is probably over. My only question is what in the hell does he have to be made at us about? We only made him the highest paid safety in the NFL. If anything we should be the one's that are pissed. The guy sucked!

Re: New year, same role for Archuleta

How hard can it be to learn to cover???? I mean come on how long has the guy been in the NFl and nobody taught him how to cover,that just seems crazy to me-

Re: New year, same role for Archuleta

Typically guys can either cover or they can't.

Certain techniques can be taught, but in the end guys either have it or they don't. AA has never been a good cover guy.

Re: New year, same role for Archuleta

The thing that always got me was that when everyone was injured, he got all pissy about being asked to play a greater role in coverage...what a bitch

What's that saying: "look like Tarzan, Play like Jane?"

Re: New year, same role for Archuleta

Unfortunately for him, he's a pass rusher in a receiver's body. He doesn't have the bulk to play defensive line or linebacker (especially since he can't cover), so his play suffers.

If he plays from here on out, he'll be a Special Teamer. So he has a choice to make. Mold the rest of his career after guys like Steve Tasker and Bill Bates, or he can mosey on home and do infomercials for Ron Popeil.

Re: New year, same role for Archuleta

i dont wish AA any ill will, while he did get paid he also got alil bit of the shaft by us:

- leading the team in tackles last season before he was benched (or atleast the first 5 games or so)

- redskins organization count of tackles had him at less then the NFL count which is kinda unheard of

i did appreciate how he handled the situation in not mopping around the locker room even though he was probaly the guy who leaked all that crap last season to the media . .

go skins!

Leading in tackles really isn't very impressive. Anytime a safety has a lot of tackles it probably means there are big problems with the front 7, which there were for us last year.

That's a big "even though" with your last statement there. Not sure how you can say on one hand that you appreciated the way he didn't mope around the locker room, and then on the other acknowledge he was the leak that undoubtedly lead to some locker room animosity with his teammates.

The fact that he's on the bench in Chicago only proves the point that he is not starting material anymore and it validates our coaches decision to bench him last year.

Re: New year, same role for Archuleta

yeah as i was writing that i was like "damn thats a big 'even thoo'" but he did lead us in tackles until he was benched and the skins did credit him with less tackles then the stingy NFL gave him so . . . . . i wish mattyk72 was the caps goalie, cant slip anything past the kid

Re: New year, same role for Archuleta

The only thing the Redskins did to AA was let him rob them of money and valuable cap space...if I'm not mistaken, aren't we still paying his salary even though he's with Chicago?

Ha-Ha! (spoken in Nelson's voice)

Seriously, this sucks for AA. He went down the drain faster than anyone has ever.

Actually the Bears picked up $5M of his contract bonus which helped lighten the cap hit for us.
