Offseason/Draft Questions for Tony McGee

Hey guys, I know its been a while since we caught up with Tony, but we spoke a little bit today and were going to start chatting a bit more regularly now, so we'll be taking questions with thought/reaction from the draft, and really the offseason as a whole. Just post them here. We'll probaboly be talking late this week or early next.

Thanks!

Re: Offseason/Draft Questions for Tony McGee

1. Tony, at this point what position would you say is our biggest need?

2. Can we get by rotating Wilson/Washington/Daniels at Defensive End?

3. Do we did get too many weapons on offense now, at the expense of other needs?

4. In what ways did this team improve since the end of last season?

5. How will improving the passing game impact the running game?

Re: Offseason/Draft Questions for Tony McGee

Tony, will Fred Davis have any real impact in his first year if Cooley stays healthy? The only Seattle TEs to catch a ball last year were Marcus Pollard and Will Heller, and the totals were 41 for 355 and 5 TDs. Not awful, but it doesn't exactly scream "need" for us at the position in the mid-second round given Cooley's production. Granted, Seattle's TE personnel was lacking, but did the Skins make the right pick with Davis given D-line/O-line/DB needs?

I personally like the pick considering his size/hands combo and our lack of depth at the position, but I'd love to hear your take.

Re: Offseason/Draft Questions for Tony McGee

Tony, If you had the draft to do over again, would you make the same choices the Redskins did? What changes would you have made?

Who would have been your first overall pick?

Re: Offseason/Draft Questions for Tony McGee

When a rookie makes a mistake like Fred Davis did by oversleeping, how do the veterans on the team react? Do they tell him it's ok, tease him about it, or knock some sense into him with some tough love?

What are your thoughts on Chad Johnson?

Should the NFL reinstate Pac Man Jones?

What are your thoughts on a rookie salary cap?

Could you share with us your favorite barbecue recipe?

Re: Offseason/Draft Questions for Tony McGee

Hi Tony - I have a simple question for ya:

Assume that the Redskins run a play with a 5 WR spread featuring Santana Moss, ARE, Chris Cooley, Malcom Kelly and Devin Thomas (I'm assuming that Fred Davis is still in his bed "sleeping in"). All 5 WR's run different patterns, but they all intersect at a point exactly 19.3 yards down the field from the line of scrimmage. Assuming that Jason Campbell delivers the ball on target (I know, this is a HUGE assumption) at the precise moment the WR's reach this intersection, WHO CATCHES THE BALL?

Use each WR's height, 40 time, vertical leap, 225lb bench press and ego as variables to solve this problem. Assume it is not raining and wind is blowing 8MPH SSW and the ball is snapped at the opponent's 37 yard line. We are playing the New York Giants in this particular scenario.

Bonus Question: Is a touchdown scored on this play?

Re: Offseason/Draft Questions for Tony McGee

Thanks in advance Tony!

1. Was Jim Zorn the best hire, or were you pulling for someone else as the new HC?

2. Is the SEE-Haux WCO of the previous PO game a good indicator of what we will potentially see here in Washington? Please see the breakdown below:

"What Seattle ran

Redskins 360
POSTED 3:49 PM BY Ryan O'Halloran

A question posed on a recent Redskins message board wondered what Seattle ran offensively against the Redskins in the teams' January playoff game, won by the Seahawks 35-14. This is obviously asked to start predicting what kind of formations Jim Zorn will use as the Redskins' coach.

You asked for it, here it is.

Total snaps: 54

4WR-1RB: 14 times. ... Seattle ran this formation on four of its first five snaps. The big plays out of this set was a 17-yard touchdown run and a 20-yard touchdown pass. The pass-run breakdown is 10-4.

3WR-2RB: 10 times. ... The Seahawks connected for a 35-yard pass but also threw an interception. The four running plays gained nine yards.

3WR-1RB: 17 times. ... This ended up being the most common formation. Seattle passed 11 times (plus one sack) from this set.

2WR-2RB: 8 times. ... Four passes (including one INT) and four runs.

1WR-2RB: 4 times. ... Three of these plays came after Seattle assumed a 28-14 lead.

5WR: 1 time. ... Mike Holmgren lined up Shaun Alexander as a receiver and Shawn Springs snuffed out the play for a 1-yard loss.
