Peppers is not strong against the run and there is no way he can drop down to defensive tackle. He wants to become an outside linebacker in a 3-4.

I could be wrong but I thought when Mangenius was fired some were saying it was as much fault as players like Jenkins who laid down toward the end of the year as it was the coaches that the Jets fell off. Heard it somewhere, can't remember where.

I feel like there is no way that Carolina will let him go without getting something in return for him. They will franchise him in the hopes of getting draft choices for him, so if the Redskins would want to sign him they will have to give up at least there #1 pick this year.

Hmm...I wonder where he'd end up...Browns? NE? (ugh, I hope not) a lot of teams run the 3-4 now, no?

Re: Peppers says he wants to explore free agency

He is a great player but not worth the price tag. The Skins need to stick to the draft and build that way.

He'd be way to expensive.

Peppers should take notes from Adrian Wilson from the Cards.

Once again, a rookie player may or may not have an impact on the defense. Signing or not signing peppers has nothing to do with "building through the draft" (unless we were trading for Peppers, and that's not the case).

The Redskins have some decisions to make on the defensive side of the ball. One would be to sign one of these big time free agents in hopes that they would make immediate impact, which a lot of us agree would not be a good decision.

An alternative to this would be to sign less expensive players (i.e. Bernard from Seattle and/or Karlos Dansby...although with AZ going to the SB he may not be that inexpensive) as well as drafting a young d-lineman. Hope that those inexpensive players contribute while any defensive rookie(s) develop.

Otherwise you are stuck with the same players and you can sign rookies. But once again, rookies may or may not contribute. Yes, I would hope that we can sign a DE or DT that can contribute right away (a la Horton) but it may not happen.

So please don't say: "let's not sign Peppers and build through the draft." Unless you want for our defense to be the same next year or however many years it takes for those rookies you pick up to contribute. Last draft the Redskins were building through the draft by picking up Kelly, Thomas, and Davis. But building through the draft doesn't mean that they contributed right away, many times it means that you pick up rookies to develop over a season or two so they can contribute later on.

Stubblefield
Big Daddy Wilkenson
Bruce Smith
Jason Taylor

All DL players who we paid MASSIVE DOLLARS to bring here - with huge fan enthusiasm over the last decade. Then they came here and underperformed. They all were tremendous failures.

Draft for the DL and OL and build that way, like the best teams in the NFL. Otherwise we'll be adding another $1-3 million per sack player to this list above.

Re: Peppers says he wants to explore free agency

We have the lowest number of draft picks toward the DL in the last decade. I wonder if our low win percentage has ANYTHING to do with that neglect.

We choose flash players (mostly WR) over the trenches every year.

I am a UNC fan so I have followed Peppers since college, though I like him I don't want him to die here.

Now, I do not think we should go after Peppers, I think we should go after Gross. At DT, we can go after someone like Rocky Bernard, who quietly had a good year in a crappy team with a crappy defense.


Initially I was all about us getting Haynesworth, but the more I think about it, the more it looks like he would be a bust.
You're like me in a sense in you care about character. With that said Rocky Bernard isn't going to fit that criteria either, in fact he might be worse then Haynesworth.

Suspension

On Saturday, August 30, 2008, the National Football League suspended Bernard for the Seahawks' 2008 season opener for violating the league's personal conduct policy. Bernard was arrested in April on investigation of domestic violence. He alledgedly punched his ex-girlfriend in the forehead. He will lose $235,000 in salary for the suspension.[2]
