Re: Odell Thurman Cut:

Man, I didn't really expect the topic of this thread to reach a resolution so quickly. It's kind of funny as with most things to see what people were saying about him before today, and how he should be our next great linebacker, then this happens.

Poor ChickenMonkey couldn't have been more wrong, but I respect the fact that he stood by his opinion so can't really blame him for believing in something. Then again the suggestion that the Redskins D was screwed if we lose Rocky and don't sign Odell might have been a little over the top, as this team is famous for producing overachievers year in and year out.

Trust me theres someone on our roster right now that you're going to like a lot at the end of the year, we just don't know who it is until we play, but my moneys on Matt Sinclair.

Anyway epic win for the people that answered no in the poll.

Re: Odell Thurman Cut:

Why is it that every player that is cut from other teams the Redskins should consider? and why is it every player someone asks if we should consider, if they are not a nun with a chastity belt or even have the slightest blemish (ie:CJ) then they are potential problem players and we should discount them? maybe we should pick up all our players from a religious college and change the name of the team to the "Washington Holey Rollers."

It's not nesccesarily opposing every player with charcter issues so much as its the fact that we seem to suggest every available player with a decent rating on Madden. Character issues are just the icing on the cake. At least thats my take.

As far as opposing every player with the slighest blemish, well I wouldn't say that. I didn't oppose adding CJ because he was a problem child, I just preferred building through the draft. In fact I was still open to the possibility of adding him, but never was his character a concern as far as I go.

Now lets look at the players with character issues that have been suggested or signed.

James Hardy - Violent domestic dispute with his girlfiend followed by him pulling a gun on his own father after the draft. Not to mention during the draft I valued him as the 5th best big reciever based on talent alone behind Thomas, Nelson, Sweed, and Kelly.

Jerome Mathis - Wayne Brady

Odell Thurman - Out of the league for two years at the time of suggestion, character concerns surrounding possible drug dealing and addiction to ice before the draft. Two years away from football, plays a position we don't need help at not to mention a rich 2009 LB class in the next draft. Oh yeah, he's not playing next year due to another failed drug test, and this time it's an actual fail, not missed, just pure epic fail.

Chris Henry - My God I don't need to go into detail do I?

Personally I'm more humanist then religous, so save your chasity belt accusations for Mel Gibson However if you can think of a decent player suggested with character concerns then let me know. I might have missed a guy or two, but I rest my case concerning the guys I listed in this post.

As to why I tend to oppose players with character issues, well thats a whole nother post but generally when teamates respect each other they play harder so as not to let their teammates down. Brandon Lloyd comes to mind.

Re: Odell Thurman Cut:

Insightfull. Thank You. I did find it interesting that when the team hired Jarome Mathis to be a punt returner only a ripple in the pond was made. Maybe that was because it happened so fast and no one knew we were looking at him. but even though hardly a ripple was made while the whole time people were creating tsunami's about CJ and Briggs. Now it's Taylor from Miami, and Thurman.

I'll agree I don't want Thurman either. Drug problems. nuff said. People said no to trading for Taylor because he was to old. LOL. ok. He atleast has 2-3 more yrs left and that gives us time to groom someone or get someone. Now it sounds like Miami would not part with him.
