Not a fan...I would have signed Mason. Alexander is washed up.

Ummmm, that's for the special teams coach to address, not Rock.

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

don't like the move. what could he bring to the table? i say let Rock pick up Ladells 5 carries a game. would rather see the skins go younger, maybe Mason. and no, i wasn't one of the people on this board that had a Mason man crush

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

During the preseason coaches were saying that Mason could not block, although bringing back Mason sounds as reasonable to me as signing Alexander.

Portis is the man so it is not a big deal. We need someone to take a few carries to rest CP but just a few carries. Alexander costs virtually nothing even if he is a flop. It is just not a big deal whether we went Mason or Alexander, as long as that person doesn't fumble.

dmek25, I like your idea. Maybe in the offseason we can find a young back who is as good or better than Mason.

Um... I still don't get why people are comparing SA to Mason.

What can he bring to the table? He's made it past pre-season and practice squad with a team. That's more then Mason has.

Go younger? This is a fill in position. Go past MVP.

So I ask again, for all those that don't agree with the move... you don't trust JZ's ability to evaluate talent? Probably the same people who want Janson to stay in.

All hail #35!

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

Shaun looked good yesterday on his 3 carries, especially his first run that went for 8 yards. Sure he gained a yard and lost a yard on the other two runs, but he looked like he was in shape and took some hits without a problem. Zorn said that's the only thing he needs to work on, taking hits after a year layoff.

Looks like it will be a good move in the end.

He couldnt take a hit when he was in the game shape. i.e, playoffs last year when Marcus Washington laid him out.

He wasn't healthy then.

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

Deion is really one to call someone out for being soft. He never saw a tackle that he didn't try to avoid.

True. But he is going to be in the hall of fame and SA isn't. I'll put money on that..Deoin might not have been the biggest hitter but he changed the game...Regardless of his remarks. I would expect a CB to be softer than a RB who is going to be hit everytime he runs the ball. Deion might not have been a hitter. But he could pick you off and take it to the house for 6 points highstepping into the end zone with his patent leather cleats..lol

Yeah ok. Imagine if CP was really hurt Ravens PS and this was the very reason I said this. If Betts or Portis got hurt. Then the arguement was he doesn't know the plays. By now he would have learned them sitting behind CP and Betts. Then the arguement was I rather have a MVP. Wow. SA looks so good. NOT. Rock? If Rock was so good. SA wouldn't be here..Oh but wait because he is the KO returner. Please. Thrash or someone could have spelled him until Betts got back. Then this guy on this other board used to throw up Rocks stats on KO returns. Now look at his stats. He's a good special teams tackler but teams definitely dont fear him on returns. My bad he's so valuable. Valuable my ass. I will bet anything he wont be here next year......I know drama is coming for me saying this. But whenever I call it like I see it..They come out the wood work. But please mark my words.
