Re: 2007 in Review/2008 Preview

Best on field moment: Collins to Yoder against the bears. it was a classic, backup to backup connection. loved seeing it, and we needed it. (especially after what had happened the week before...see below).

Worst on field moment: Tie between the inability to score on the on the goal line against the giants at home, and the duel timeout fiasco.

Offensive MVP: Collins, without him, this season is a major disappointment, Gibbs gets lambasted all off season, perhaps we embark on an ambitious rebuilding regiment, basically his play bought us time and made the season exciting.

Defensive MVP: Fletcher. It is clear that Williams defense just doesn't work without a savvy middle linebacker.

Offensive Player I'm looking forward to watching in '08: Campbell and Randy Thomas.

Defensive Player I'm looking forward to watching in '08: Landry. (and the DE we draft).

Offensive Player who surprised you (good & bad):
Good: Heyer.
Bad: Betts and Lloyd

Defensive Player who surprised you (good & bad):
Good: Reed D.
Bad: Rogers (only because of his high draft status, plus i'm not a believer.)


Non Redskins player I'd like to see in a Redskins Uni next year: Some college stud DE.

Redskins player I'd like to see in another uni next year: Llyod.

"So, with everything wrapped up, thought I would give out some MVPs:

Offense: Casey Rabach. Thought about Samuels and Collins here, but went with the center. Held a patchwork offensive line together for the most part and fought through a crazy painful groin tear in remarkably short order. Had he missed more time I don't think there's anyone they can even make this playoff run. The guard play was pretty suspect at times and I thought Casey was the glue guy on that side of the ball."

I don't know if I'd go so far as to make him the offensive MVP, but what JLC says jives much more with what I saw on the field than saying that Rabach "had his worst season as a pro."

agree, I think casey played well, kept a very inexperienced line in check. the only thing you can knock him on is his tendency to get pushed back on clear run plays..

Non Skin I want to see in their uniform in 08 How about Ed Reed, he'd do well in taylor's shoes and he is a free agent.

Re: 2007 in Review/2008 Preview

Best on field moment: Landry's jarring hit on Kevin Curtis to seal the eight point victory over Philadelphia. Either that or Campbell's TD to Cooley to close out the first half.

Worst on field moment: Brian Westbrook's 52 yard screen pass reception to beat us in the last game Sean ever played in.

Offensive MVP: Jason Campbell/Todd Collins. The Quarterback play on the whole this year was exceptional. Collins was better than Campbell, but let us not forget how well Jason played in only his 3rd season.

The Quarterback is usually going to get the offensive MVP because he has the most chances, and when the running game struggles as much as it did this year, it's really a simple choice.

Defensive MVP: Sean Taylor/London Fletcher. Taylor was the MVP for the the first half of the year, Fletcher was the 2nd.

Offensive Player I'm looking forward to watching in '08: Campbell.

Defensive Player I'm looking forward to watching in '08: Carlos Rogers/whoever we draft. Rogers, I though, was really having a great year before his injury. With the age on this defense, I expect our highest defensive draft pick to start from day one.

Offensive Player who surprised you (good & bad)
Good: Stephon Heyer
Bad: Casey Rabach. I know your role changes when you are playing next to Fabini instead of Thomas, but my god, I think 50/50 lives once more, and he's manifested himself in lineman form.

Defensive Player who surprised you (good & bad)
Good: Randall Godfrey. In the face of injury to both OLBs, Godfrey stepped right in and ate up runners every play. Andre Carter gets an honorable mention.
Bad: Cornelius Griffin. He was playing great at mid year, but from that point on, we lacked a competant 2nd force in our pass rush after Carter. Griffin was great early on, but he's not all that valuable if he loses his explosiveness by every November.

Non Redskins player I'd like to see in a Redskins Uni next year: Brian Kelly, CB, Tampa Bay

Redskins player I'd like to see in another uni next year: Brandon Lloyd. Oh god get this guy out of here. The 53 man roster card gently weeps at night.

Re: 2007 in Review/2008 Preview

Best on field moment: London Fletcher's pick-6 against Arizona. That was the loudest I cheered all year. Jumped off the couch for that one.

Worst on field moment: Getting stopped on the goal line against the Giants in Week 3. That also killed the throwbacks I liked.

Offensive MVP: Clinton Portis. Stat-wise, another huge year but even beyond that, his blocking, leadership on and off the field, especially after Sean's death. He SHOULD be the NFL MVP, he's truly the most valuable player. Without him on the field, the team can't succeed. Ask the QBs laying on the field if the team needs him for more than scoring TDs.

Defensive MVP: London Fletcher. He stepped right in and took over the defense as a vocal leader. Watching, you'd think he was a Redskin all his career.

Offensive Player I'm looking forward to watching in '08: Jason Campbell. He'll continue to improve.

Defensive Player I'm looking forward to watching in '08: Laron Landry. He's making big plays and also rookie mistakes. His rookie year looked so similar to Sean Taylor's. Hopefully he can step in and fill the void.

Offensive Player who surprised you (good & bad):
Good: Antwaan Randel El. He was our #1 WR most of the year.
Bad: Ladell Betts. Horrible on the goal line, in blocking and still fumbles. He went from being some other team's possible starter to someone I don't want to see on the field in any meaningful situation.

Defensive Player who surprised you (good & bad):
Good: Rocky McIntosh. I knew he would be good, but not THIS good THIS soon.
Bad: Sean Springs. He had his great plays, but got burned more often. He's declining.


Non-Redskins player I'd like to see in a Redskins Uni next year: A new kicker.

Redskins player I'd like to see in another uni next year: Brandon Lloyd.

He's 29. He's got some good years left. Not saying I want him, just saying he's not what I would call old.

We seem to have good luck recently in drafting DBs, especially safeties.

I say we draft another one, maybe that kid from Miami.

It's early, but most draft projections have Kenny Phillips getting drafted somewhere between #11 and #19.

Re: 2007 in Review/2008 Preview

Re: Ed Reed. No way can we afford him. He's got to get the biggest contract for a safety, ever... I think last year's ridiculous (ridicules) spending on some average players has really inflated the market. I'd be surprised if we sign anyone with upside left.

Re: 2007 in Review/2008 Preview

if kenny phillips fell to us, i wouldn't be too upset to see him in a redskins uniform. we need a DE to replace daniels though, line depth, and a stud WR would be VERY nice (but i think CJ is the only real choice there, unless randy moss is stupid enough to test FA).
