Can't believe the Redskins are signing this guy after his 05 season. With that said his 12 year old highlight film looks pretty solid.

So Dirtbag359... are you officially going on record as saying this is a mistake and SA will be a bust?

Together again...

What? I didn't say anything. I was just using the opportunity to post his highlight film from when he was 12. In the meantime I think the move makes sense. It's hard to say he's a mistake unless he ends up costing us a game through a fumble or an interception on a halfback pass.

Believe this... Shaun Alexander will be the best mid-season pickup in the NFL.

When can I get my Shaun Alexander avatar?

re: Redskins Sign Shaun Alexander (Merge) *updated*

I'm not sold on Alexander by any means but after reading the board I say, why not give him a shot. Hamiltons been cut to make room for him and I don't think he was going to play much anyway. I really don't have anything against him other than I've HEARD he was soft and selfish. Zorn knows him personally so maybe what I've heard is wrong. At league minimum he does'nt cost much and maybe he'll use this opportunity to prove his reputation wrong. I hope so.

I use to dread watching this guy run against us. But I mean I love this move. I hope Zorn uses him to his full potential again. Does anyone remember if this guy can catch?

re: Redskins Sign Shaun Alexander (Merge) *updated*

he can catch. i don't think he fumbles much, but has the potential to be soft. Remember when the Skins knocked him out early in the 2005 playoff game? I think what probably hurt SA besides nagging injuries was the loss of that stud tackle Seattle let go to Minn. Can't remember his name right now...but it seemed like SA had his biggest decline once dude was gone.

My thoughts exactly. We should have never let him go. I knew a situation like this would come up. I even stated it before. What happens if Betts or CP goes down. Who is going to back them up. Cartwright..??

Cartwright needs to step up his returns and special teams play. Everyone was hailing him the capt of the Special teams and his vaulable experience. How many kicks have we had ran back on us so far. We should ahve primed someone else for returns and kept Mason..I got kicked off extremeskins for argueing with a dude about this. I got pissed off because he kept throwing up stats that were irrelevant about Rock. Is Mson on thier practice squad or final roster?

He says he's been working out in Washington (state I assume) with an Olympic trainer and is in GREAT shape and 100% healthy finally. If this is true, look out, this could be fun to watch.

We didn't let him go, he didn't MAKE THE TEAM. He was given plenty of chances to.

I like this move. It's very low risk, high reward for the Skins.

How are the returns that have been taken back on us Rock's fault?
