Just kidding, I can't do that again.

You would think that Landry would be well suited to play free safety. Laron certainly seemed to make more plays after he was moved to free safety in the last quarter of the season. He wasn't a turnover machine, but he broke up an awful lot of passes and was able to build up speed to put big hits on opposing wideouts.

But, I swear that I've read that the coaches want Landry to move back to strong safety, in which case we may very well be in the market for a free safety. I like Doughty, but probably he's not fast enough to play FS and I wouldn't be particularly surprised to see him relegated to a reserve role.
Landry is going to be a Pro Bowl free safety very soon. I just remember him ball hawking against Seattle. He was just all over the place. I would just leave the safetly positions alone and gamble on Reed. We simply have more pressing needs.

I like Reed too. He might never be a superstar but who's to say he can't develop into a solid starter?

Playing next to Superstar Landry will mask a lot of his coverage deficencies.

Doughty is good at a few things and has the ability to improve in many others, and that's why he deserves to start as SS in 2008.

Re: Ken Hamlin - Free Agent!

No Way to Ken Hamlin. Reed Doughty is just as good as Hamlin but w/o the huge pricetag. Ken Hamlin just isn't worth signing. If Dallas Sh*ty defense doesn't even want him why should we. If he isn't even good enough for Dallas than he sure as heck ain't good enough to play for the Redskins. If we need another safety, we should draft one in the later rounds of the draft. I think we should all have a little more faith in Doughty, he did excellent filling in for Sean Taylor in the regular season and the playoffs.

BTW I've seen people say Landry is the SS and Doughty is the FS but it's the other way around, Gregg Williams kept Landry deep and Doughty in the box. Doughty doesn't have the speed or instincts Landry has so he was constantly brought down into the box to provide extra run support will Landry was our deep man in Cover 1.

Also there are people who think we should move Shawn Springs to safety. Again, No Way. Springs is our best corner and since Carlos Rogers will NOT be ready by the beginning of next season, we will need all the corner help we can get. Without Rogers, Springs is our only corner who can put any receiver on "lockdown" in man-to-man coverage.
