What you guys are doing is HOPING. But to say we shouldn't address WR because Anthony Mix is going to make everything OK, that would be a very poor decision.
That's what I'm saying too. I'm not saying the kid will never be a decent player, I hope that he does become a beast. At his size, if he put it together, he would be hell for opposing defenses, but to rest you're hopes on a guy with 3 career catches for 39 yards is asinine if your the general manager of a football team. They need to bring someone else in.

So I'd imagine that if Mix was a first rounder, or a return specialist, he would have been kept.

He certainly did excel on Special Teams for the Skins. I'd imagine he could contribute regularly as a #4 along with his special teams work.

*I* recall mentioning AM in the "Zorn and Shins to pursue DJ Hackett" thread a day or so ago. I don't recall him ever being placed on waivers, but the Redskins plucked him from the Giants PS, the only requirement when you do that is that you must sign him to your 53 man roster.

The Giants had hopes for AM and wanted him to stay around. He probably would have gotten a chance to show what he could do had Plexico Burress not proved he was able to continue playing through injury. They liked what they saw of Mix in the preseason, and actually wanted to keep him but you can't block a player on the PS from being signed by another team.

I don't have any idea what the teams plan is for Mix, but I would like to see him at least have an opportunity to show what he can do in the preseason.

Re: Anthony Mix Must Be Our Man

Anthony Mix deserves a chance, i just don't want to see us waste a 1st rd pick on a WR, there is no one out there that come in and learn a new system and make an immediate impact, sign a FA who's played in the NFL and has potential

I agree......If you're going to draft a WR in the first round he has to be a stud, future pro-bowler who can come in and make an immediate impact. At #21 there wont be anyone there who fits that description for the Redskins.

I'm of the opinion it would be in our best interest to go D-line or even CB rather than thinking an impact WR at #21.

He was cut from the Giants. If they were that high on him, they would have found a way to keep him. Simple as that.

We better not be depending on him for anything this coming season other than special teams and a prayer for a little more.
Exactly.

lol he's still helpful in madden

For real though, I think this thread is not "overhyping" the guy, rather suggesting we examine the man more closely... an idea that I'm extremely open to as a fan. For now, however, I think we should take a wait and see approach and starve ourselves until after the draft to see the Skins' moves on wide-outs.

No, people are thinking Over 6'4 + alleged sub 4.4 40 time = Great Big Possession Receiver to compliment Moss.

To me it's kind of like saying
Underweight = Anorexia

Just because someones underweight doesn't mean their annorexic. Same thing with Mix, just because he's big and fast doesn't mean he's going to gain 700 yards next year. I mean it's possible, but not likely.

We dont need a superstar, we need a big target in the red zone. Santana is our superstar. We need 500 yards out of him.

Re: Anthony Mix Must Be Our Man

*I* don't think anyone is actually overhyping Mix to the extent they feel he'll be a superstar. What they are saying is that if the team thought enough of the guy to sign him to the 53 man roster frrom the Giants PS, it's conceivable they saw some potential in him. All I see suggested here is that some feel he should be given an opportunity to see if he can be productive.

There's really not much difference in discussing him as it is discussing a WR in the draft who may, or may not be available at the time the team makes a selection. We all realize AM is not Chad Johnson, or Randy Moss, that does not however preclude him from being effective. He hasn't proven anything in the NFL yet, but neither has that WR somewhere waiting to be drafted.

Re: Anthony Mix Must Be Our Man

maybe the skins are satisfied using Mccardell and Caldwell? but Mix will probably get his look at training camp. and my god, the guys 6'5", so i know alot of people around here want him strictly due to the fact he is tall.

Well in that case, I don't think you're saying very much, because every player on the team is given an opportunity to show that they can be productive. That's the process the team goes through in training camp and preseason.

But allowing Mix an opportunity does not preclude the Redskins from making a move at WR, either through the draft, FA, or trade.

It's nice to dream about Mix, but what my camp is saying is that it's a huge mistake to COUNT on him for anything. The creator of this thread seems to think the Redskins believe Mix is "their guy." The only guy he is to the Redskins right now is another player with POTENTIAL. He by no means is considered the heir apparent to the #2 job Zorn is referring to. Thinking otherwise IS overhyping him.

I get what you're saying though, he'll get his chance. But that's no different than any other year or any other player.

good post. Per what I posted earlier, I look at it similar to Anthony Montgomery. He got a little pt in 06, the draft comes up & they didn't draft any d linemen, saying they felt they could get by w/the group they had.

A year later, d line is still a priority need, but Montgomery started the whole year, and while unspectacular, held his own on a solid D.

Mix might be held in that same regard w/the coaches, they realize he's unlikely to be a pro bowler, but from what they've seen in practice, feel he can contribute.

IMO, if we draft a wr that indicates they have some confidence that Mix can at least contribute as the young un learns te ropes.

On a side note, anyone know Thrash's contract situation? Is there a good chance he could be cut? I love the guy, but now that Mix has made his mark on sepcial teams, Thrash could be the odd man out.

First, I have to disagree on the Anthony Montgomery comparison, because Montgomery was somebody drafted by Gibbs and Grilliams. He was identified as a HUGE talent lacking in work ethic. They figured if they could kick him into gear he could be huge. So they kicked him into gear, and now he's an above-average NFL starting DT.

The same cannot be said for Mix. He is tall, he is somewhat fast, but his route-running is severely lacking. It's not like Montgomery, where the coaches can try to kick him into gear and create a starter. Montgomery had all the tools, he just didn't have the work ethic. I'm not sure Mix has all the tools; he's got the size and straight line speed, he works hard and puts out lots of effort, but he struggles to get open because he simply isn't very agile. That's not quite as coachable as work ethic.

I'd love it if you were right though, and I hope he takes advantage of his opportunities and steps it up for the 'Skins. But I think we'd be remiss to count on that and pass on making a move at WR.

As for Thrash, that's a great question. Gibbs loved him because of his special teams abilities more than anything, plus he's a real hard worker. But the question is will Zorn be as high on Thrash as Gibbs was? Danny Smith is still with us coaching special teams, so you can be sure he'll get in Zorn's ear about keeping Thrash around. But in the end it will be Zorn's call, he might want to go a different direction.

If we don't acquire any WRs this offseason, then I'd say Thrash definitely stays. But I figure we're going to acquire at least one either by trade, free agency, or the draft. We'll see where that leaves Thrash.
