I listened to an interview a while back, prior to start of season I think, and S.A. stated he just wanted to play. He was healthy, fired up, and didn't care as long as he could contribute. I think it's a good move. Randy

Anyone who doesn't love this is crazy!

All upside. No downside.

Alexander is a proven RB, willing to run for cheap, and knows the JZ pass offense. This could be a match made in heaven.

Could he be a bust? Yup. Back where we started.

Could he be the one piece of the puzzle that creates the best 1-2 punch in the NFL? Yup.

Someone, please tell me why this isn't a great move? I'm still looking.
Rock over Sean? Please. I didn't see #31 on my old Madden game.

I like this move. I agree that there is huge upside for us and not to much downside. If he comes in and isn't ready we can just dump him if need be. Mason is still out there. I am kinda surprised that mason wasn't brought back in.

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.

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?
