Keep in mind that this guy had the Grossman/Griese/Orton trio of mediocre QBs throwing at him, and he still performed better than S.Moss (61 Rec/808 Yds/3 TDs) or even Randle El (51 Rec/728 Yds/1 TD).

Berrian would give the Skins the tall possession receiver they've been craving and they wouldn't have to give up any picks. I think that a WR tandem of Berrian, Moss, and Randle El, along with Chris Cooley, would give the Redskins a solid passing game. Plus we wouldn't deal with the baggage that Ocho Cinco brings, nor worrying about shelling out tons of $$$. I hope that now Gibbs is gone, DS doesn't go back to his old ways of giving up picks at the drop of a dime.

At 6'1" and 185lbs, that does not qualify one to be a possesion receiver. He will get bullied at the line. Remember Mushin Muhamed(sp) was the #1 and he was the #2.

So if we get him we may see him turn into what Peerless Price was after he left Buffalo behind Eric Moulds. Once he landed in ATL as a #1 he couldn't get open, get past the double teams that #1 receivers face, and he couldn't live up to his heft contract.

I say, no way Jose.

He would be on the field more consistantly instead of his one play every 10-15. Thrash should be back, Caldwell maybe. I just think we have some more pressing needs with the health of Carlos and Rocky up in the air. Defense is what wins championships, Giants most recently proven this. I think Moss and Randel El are a pretty decent tandem, and who knows what this Mix kid would bring. Big, Stong,and reasonably fast gives that big target the staff apparently desires. Plus you have cooley that lines up in the slot more in a west coast style. another thing to consider is Portis will be more in the field receiving more than he has been.

No doubt I think chad is great receiver, but overall i just dont see the need in giving him 50-60+million.
I agree with you 100%. It would be nice to get a big possession receiver but not if it means giving away draft picks and/or making the salary cap situation worse. Offensive line and defensive line, linebacker depth and secondary depth are bigger problems.

Re: Bernard Berrian

This months Warpath Buzz words are brought to you by Dan Snyder: The Redskins owner for the rest of your natural born life and then some (he has enough money to keep himself alive for at least a 1,000 years).

The buzz words are veteran minimum and Anthony Mix.

veteran minimum - A set amount of salary and a buzz word that makes Warpath members feel like smart GM's. The amount currently is valued at a little over $700k while counting only around $400k against the cap. Usually used to sign over the hill players that are looking to win a Super Bowl or play for a contender and no longer care about money due to the fact that they have made too much of it over the course of their career. Usually suggested when a former pro bowler over the age of 32 is released.

Anthony Mix - The 2020nd best player in fantasy football last year. A player that some Warpath members feel is the next TO due to the fact that he is approximately the size of the average NBA 2 guard. Mix is famous for recovering a squib kick against Seatle during the playoffs, which led to a missed Shaun Shuisam field goal.

OMG. Who the hell was responsible for paying a guy all that $ and he's never even caught 50 passes in one season? Pittsburgh must be laughing at us.

Between injuries and not playing better then the younger WR we had he seemed to not make it or cut it. Time to cut our ties that bind us.

Don't say it was AL's system cause he couldn't make it in San Fran in the WC offense either.

Hopefully we will have Moss, Mix, Espy, Randel El, Cooley and if I'm correct Portis who will be if not running the ball catching it out of the back field.
Any additions should be a #1 type of possession WR.

I like Randel El but quickly got tired of his east/west running instead of his north south. He was pretty reliable in the short yardage downs and out routes.
I would give Lloyd one more year. Like someone else mentioned we just have more pressing needs then to be going after more high priced WR's.

Re: Bernard Berrian

The Skins desperately need to score 21+ points per game. To accomplish that they need an a more dynamic explosive offense. Easily accomplished by adding a #1 flight receiver to take the double off of Moss. DS needs to keep the team in the press right up to the draft so I look for another big splash in a week or so. Chad Johnson or Roy Williams gives DS all of the press he could dream for. It's the big splash time of year.

Personally. Or address is in the 3rd round...
Yeah, this guy can actually hang to a pass every once in a while. Don't get me wrong Berrian is an above average receiver but he is by no means what we need, he is more of a big play threat than anything else. Wilford on the other hand is huge and is more of a possession guy.

CJ has proven to be a pro bowl cailber player every year not one not two every year and Benard Berrian has not.
landry was a lock. bush was viewed by some as the best WR in that class, and not nearly the best RB, since his speed advantage wouldn't be as great and lendale was the one breaking all the tackles, and way to judge CJ after one year. he'll be good in the NFL, and has a chance to be great, but it might not show till he's third year... thats pretty common at WR.

troy smith was a steal in the 5th, and he's better than the guy the ravens drafted in the 1st round by far.

I agree that CJ is WAY better than berrian though.

he'll get his chance, but being 6'5" doesn't make you good. there's a reason he hasn't seen the field yet.

Re: Bernard Berrian

he'd improve our WR corps, but as the #2/#3... so unless it's a cheap deal it's not worth it... and you gotta figure the bears are perfectly capable of matching a cheap deal.
