As for Doughty, I think he's ok. I definitely think we could get an upgrade in the draft or FA. Bob Sanders would look good in burgundy and gold. He's a FA this year.

i didnt mean sign a high priced free agent I meant for depth like a solid 3 guy or draft a guy cause our secondary always seems to get hurt.

I would crap my pants of we could land Bob Sanders. Bob might be the best safety now since ST passed.

The only thing that would worry me about Sanders is his proneness to injury. Hasn't he missed some significant time the past two seasons?

Doughty looked good today. Seems like he's getting more comfortable.

Bob Sanders was wisely signed to a huge extension by Indy.

We most definitely have our starting safety tandem now. Reed is good to go.

I'm not buying, but I'm not selling either. He's not making big plays, but he's not getting torched. I don't know if GW has adjusted the scheme to ensure he's not asking to much of Doughty, or if Doughty has been doing a good job. He certainly appears to be a keeper though.

What I'm betting on is that he'll improve as he get's more comfortable starting. I think for someone to come and dislodge him from the starting spot, we're talking about a FA signing from some other team.

Re: Is Doughty A Fill In 4 Now? or A Legit Starter?

Moving Doughty from FS to SS is the best move ever. He is a completely different player, no longer the accident prone, timid player that he became after getting continuely beat at FS. He is thriving at the more physical and less mentally demanding SS position.
I have to admit I was very hard on Doughty. But he did look like crap until he came in at SS and they moved LaRon Landry to his regular college FS position.
I just hope teams do not start to pick on him like they did on Archuleta.

Depending on how Doughty does for the rest of this year and depending on who is the best player available at the time we draft, but I would be fine with sticking with Doughty at SS.
I still say we draft the best available D or O lineman available regardless of position.

legit. he's been learning quickly, and playing well. solid tackler and decent in coverage. He clearly needs to improve, but the foundation is strong

I believe Doughty is adequate, especially if we can add another pass rusher to the D-line for next season. There are greater needs on this team than finding a replacement for Doughty. CB will probably also be a priority with Carlos Rogers coming off an ACL.

Re: Is Doughty A Fill In 4 Now? or A Legit Starter?

doughty is good enough as a starter, he is young, a good reliable tackler, decent in coverage, and most importantly in my opinion has a good understanding with laron landry. he spoke on redskins post game live about how well he and landry understand each other in such a short period of time
