Yet it's hard to do any of that without a good o-line. Funny isn't it?

Re: What's wrong with the Redskins?

The Redskins are also still paying worthless players that we brought to the roster a few years back, such as Branon Lloyd, a punter or two, and they also made terrible decisions in picking up TJ Duckett, Shaun Alexander, the safety who now plays for Seattle that we had in 06, and there are quite a few more i can't think of at the moment. i think the Redksins did look at the offensive line more than us fans know, but they chose to go for players who might make a bang ot\r two this season like Malcolm Kelly and Devon Thomas. Obviously not a smart decision, and as for Cambell, any quarterback will perform well with a solid O-line, some of the blame does fall on him for inaccuracy and decisions but how accurate can you be when you have a truck coming in on your blindside, and when he does a\have protection i think he still is too cautious because he isn't used to it due to the rare occurance of it ever happening.

For years we've been stuck in the mud as a franchise, surely from above, but also from the aspect of the coaching staff. Hopefully the new regime will bring in an entirely new staff, fresh faces and ideas to bring us current and renew our competitiveness.
One of the most insightful posts I've read in a long, long time. I mean I always single out Hixon as arguably one of the least successful coaches in professional football, having never developed a player, but you're absolutely right there's actually a trend of mediocrity there throughout. Yet another indictment of absolute piss-poor FO management. We seem to be a franchise w/o "connections" in the sense of recruiting legit talent across the various facets of the organization. This, IMO, is squarely on lil Danny. Vinny is allegedly the player evaluator, but w/o a true GM to assemble the coaching staff we've just drifted in that dept.

Dude, you and Paintrain hit the nail on the head. EVERYONE who follows or looks into this team realizes there are fundamental problems from the top down in this organization. Top of the pyrimid if you will, #1 danny- no head for how a football team is ran or constructed. #2 lil danny has no idea how a football front office is constructed. #3 lil dickie has no eye for football talent, THEREFORE, no eye for football tallent evaluator... etc so on and so on. VERY SAD, sad for us as fans, sad for the team, sad SITUATION. hail to the redskins...

Who is the best team in the league? hate to say it on this site...but its the Giants why? They have homegrown talent on the trenches, they draft well and then develop.

I want to know how Joe Bugel still has a job...he hasn't had much to work with but it seems like Chris Samuels has gotten worse, Heyer hasn't stepped up, Rhinehart hasn't been developed...that all points to Buges.

Draft and develop linemen, time tested strategy...
The reason Joe Bugel has a job is because he stoll is living on his past reputation with Gibbs and the hogs. What has he or the team done lately. He is not the entire problem but he has not been a strong influence on the FO to draft O-Line since he returned. You would think his opinion would carry some weight with the Front Office regarding bringing in young O-Lineman. Bugle always down playing the line like it's going to be ok. Its time for him to go call BINGO after the season.

Re: What's wrong with the Redskins?

The issue with the redskins is at the QB position. Jason Campbell's lack of confidence has effected the who offense. We need to pick up Jeff Garcia to finish the season.

If that's a typo, it still makes sense.

I often wonder if Bugel is not the problem and part of the reason why we don't target more OL.
