Re: John Lynch is available, should we make a move?

Roy Williams & Lynch are both good football players, tackle & hit, but not great in coverage at this point.

That's just an aside, as for the question at hand; the skins identified safety as a position of need this offseason, just as they did w/wr. Both of those positions have already been addressed & are actually crowded. If you bring Lynch in, somebody's got to go. Who would that be? V. Fox? Horton?

Is that worth it for Lynch to play here 1 year? Not to me, it's time to let the guys in camp compete & know that their only competition is already before them.

Doughty was solid last year and should only improve with experience. I'll never understand why some people are so convinced that he's garbage and needs to be replaced. Give the guy a chance for crying out loud.

Food for thought. What round was Doughty drafted in? What rounds were Horton and Moore drafted in? If you answered 6, 7 and 6 then you would be correct. If you had a need to replace a 6th round safety, then why in the world would you wait until the 6th ad 7th round to find someone to eventually replace him?(don't answer that, it's rhetorical) If we needed someone to subplant Doughty, then they would have drafted a Safety earlier in the Draft. Furthermore, what is the purpose of drafting players in the 6th and 7th rounds?(more rhetoric) Depth.

Doughty did his damn job last season. Nothing more and nothing less. He made tackles when he was supposed to make tackles and defended passes when he needed to defend passes. People often get so star struck that they believe that they need a pro Bowl roster from top to bottom to win anything; sometimes they just need dedicated Football players who do their damn job. Doughty is dedicated and he does his damn job.
I was just about to post something similar.

I have no clue why some think that Moore or Horton are the answers when they were late round picks just like Doughty.

Re: John Lynch is available, should we make a move?

Naturally there was going to be some fall off from whoever we plugged into the safety spot after four seasons of Sean Taylor. Reed's only fault last season was that he wasn't a 6'3 230 lb athletic freak with good hands, great instincts, and a penchant for knocking the snot out of guys. Reed is good enough for Blache to keep Laron at FS, even after we got a guy in Schweigert who wasn't bad at Oakland. I think Reed and the secondary will be even better with an improved pass rush.

No Deal Howie!

Trouble is some people don't want to even give players the chance to put up or shut up.

For the same reason they think that Brennan was brought in to supplant Campbell. Cuz they's stoopid..

I agree...it's frustrating to me to see so much impatience from other fans. It's crazy to think that a new head coach is going to step right in and win 10 games. I know it's happened before (twice last year), but this team is probably going to look bad a few Sundays this season, I really hope that people will, for once, be patient. There are a bunch of guys who will be looked upon to play key roles this season who do not have much experience in this league: Doughty, Campbell, Kelly, Thomas, Davis, even Rocky.

I'm afraid that the outcry for veterans is just going to produce more of the same: 1 year runs to the playoffs without ever really buildling anything.

DISCLAIMER: This post is not to tear down everyone on this site, there are a lot of Skins fans (not all members of this site, a lot of the callers to Riggins show) who are so impatient that they won't put up with a team trying to build.

No.

Leave Lynch alone. Our Safety competition is already crowded, so why bring in a veteran, on the downside of his career, to take a spot away from a younger & more athletic player that needs to be groomed?

No thanks. Congrats on a good career Lynch, but NO SOUP FOR YOU!!

The safeties already have a mentor...meet him.

No need to pick up a twilight safety when the Skins have 2 competent safeties ready to rock and roll.

Re: John Lynch is available, should we make a move?

"Lynch is 37, but he's a great player and leader. If we can get him for a decent price and is willing to go along with our schemes, I think he would be a fantastic pickup. Thoughts?"

Are you for real? Denver was 5th WORST in points allowed and 3rd down pct. They were 11th WORST in yards per play and 1st downs per game. Overall they were just below middle of the pack 19th, but that is based on 7th in pass (read Champ Bailey and Dre Bly) and 30th in run defense. Lynch was a sieve.

Re: John Lynch is available, should we make a move?

Why would we bring a Safety who can't do a good job in coverage? There's a reason why Lynch wasn't practicing with the Nickel and Dime packages, because he has lost a step and can't cover. The only way we could justify bringing him, is if he would be willing to play LB (like what Philly was trying to do with Michael Lewis). Then again, if you want a LB, you can go after Takeo Spikes or Godfrey.
