If he is actually considering coming back he's a f'ing idiot.

Re: Chris Samuels about to Retire

If he is already feeling numbness below the waist. He should no any kind of hit can paralyze him eazier than if his neck was healthy. If you seen that hit that took him out the game earlier this year it was a basic bull rush. I couldnt imagine him taken a more violent hit, the last thing I would want to see is him getting carried out on a stretcher. Lets just hope he is getting good advice.

Thanks for your outstanding play. You are truly an unsung hero.

Chris Samuels Exploring His Options

by Matt Terl on Oct 23rd 2009 8:40PM


Reports of Chris Samuels' retirement have been slightly exagerrated. Maybe.

Although Samuels' injury -- combined with his pre-existing stenosis -- may eventually require the tackle to be put on injured reserve, thus ending his 2009 season, his current plan is to consult with specialists and explore his options before he makes a final decision regarding his future.

Samuels released the following statement through the team: "I will continue to seek medical advice. I hope to see where I am physically over the next couple months. At this time, I have not made a decision, but I love playing for the Redskins and hope to be back."

Yeah there has.

And now every single on of them will get to find out/remember what it is like to have an average or below average LT.

We should all stand and applaud CS. He gave us his best for a decade and will be sorely missed.

.

I've thought for a couple of years we should've been looking at an eventual replacement, not just a body.

Chris gave us some great years, too bad we didn't give him too many in return.

I don't want you back Chris. The only thing I can think of worse than this shit we've been watching this year is watching you come back and get paralyzed. The fan base and team has already dealt with losing its best young player in decades and we don't need anything else like that. More importantly you've been a stud or the team or years. You don't owe the team a damn thing. You owe it yourself and your family to hang it up man.

Re: Chris Samuels about to Retire

Samuels gave us a fighting shot on offense, but he was fighting through a whole bunch of injuries, and theres really no reason for him to come back while we rebuild the offense.

Re: Chris Samuels about to Retire

He should just hang out with Bugel for awhile and decide if he wants to move into coaching or not.

Yes assuming there's a cap. We could make him a June cut and push $11M to 2011 if we wanted.

Re: Chris Samuels about to Retire

I always knew Samuels was top talent on our team...even on his "off" years.
The guy was very steady...I am worried about our team because Samuels was flat out awesome many years and rock steady with rare mis-blocks on others. On top of that he was a classy steady Redskin.

I am glad he had the opportunity to be coached by Bugel and Hall of Famer Joe Gibbs.
Even though he never won a Super bowl, he was part of a couple amazing playoff runs and an amazing team showing to support Sean Taylor unity.

Samuels knows what a good team is. He knows what a good player is. He knows bad coaches and great coaches.
He knows how to keep his head up when things are falling apart too.(Zorn/Spurier)
He also got to play with Darrell Green and Bruce Smith.

I will miss Chris Samuels, clearly the most productive draft pick in the last 10 years.
I'd love for him to recover and play for us for 3 more years but if he is at risk, he should take care of himself and his family.

Re: Chris Samuels about to Retire

If this is indeed the end then he was a great Redskin and he should be very proud of the carreer he had. He will most likely get short changed in the history of the team since he played in a largely unsucessful era, but he was a very good player.

Re: Chris Samuels about to Retire

I remember thinking at the time the skins drafted him that they had made another huge mistake (2 first rounders, a fourth and a fifth to trade up). They ended up with LaVar and Chris, but no Courtney Brown. I couldn't have been more wrong, Chris has anchored the line since then and been an on and off the field leader.

His quiet strength carried the team (and several coaches) through some tough times. If he does indeed retire, the impact to the team will be tremendous, he is more than their best lineman, he is one of the biggest producers on the team. Either way, I hope his injury and symptoms are temporary, he will be missed.

Re: Chris Samuels about to Retire

Was kind of expecting this. Thanks Chris Samuels! If this is your career, then you had a good solid career as a Redskin.

Re: Chris Samuels about to Retire

Chris I pray that God will wrap his loving arms around you and heal this injury so you can continoue to have a very long and prospious life. As for me, I just want to say thanks for the memorys you shared with each and every other redskin fan. The way you carried yourself on an off the field of honor should be an insperation to all, and alot people could learn from the way you have conducted yourself. You were always a team player and never knew you to be a I or a Me thing but a us or a we team. You were a worthy leader on this team with great charectior . You always show your pride on and off the field. On the field of honor you you showed you were a very valuably team captian, in which you lead those that could not lead themselves. Not one time ever did you show any selfishness to others. Bottom line your are a hell of a man and a super hell of a redskin, you wore the colors proudly on game days and and you always gave your all and when you found you had nothing else to give, you found some more to give and then gave that out on the field Thanks for that.
Again Thanks For All The Memories. I pray that you will put yourself first, and your family and retire. You have come to a point in the road wondering should I turn right or should I turn left. Due to your health you no longer owe a dam thing to synder or the team, or the fans, but to your self and that is to stay healthy to live longer. Over the years you have proven yourself time and time again, till theres nothing else to prove. And for this we thank you. Chris if you play no other games and you do retire, I'm proud I was at the stadium watching you and the other skins that day at the game.
Now I sure as hell hope you don;t have to wait to long before they induct you into the hall of fame. You sure as hell deserve it and you stats should rush this up. Then I can take another trip to Canton and watch you be inducted along with the other redskins greats. Dear God I pray take this injury and heal it, watch over Chris and his family bless them and love them. Also Chris thanks for being a good friend to the fans on game days, shaking their hands or signing autographs. This was just another part of the man you were. CHRIS THANKS FOR THE MEMORIES THEY WILL SOON NOT BE FORGOTTON
