I say we throw the ball Davis' way and let him end up with 54 catches for the year. Then package him and Portis for three picks in the first two rounds.

Re: its embarrassing to him --fred davis-- (blocking)

Davis has done fine at blocking in the past, but the attention to detail to be successful at blocking when you are a package player is completely different from doing it when you are THE guy. I've seen his raw blocking skills on tape, but he has to prove he can do it simultaneously to being a starting TE.

It's why TE is probably the most difficult position to play outside of QB on the offense. Your block is every bit as critical as the guys who play the OL and do it every play, but despite how important blocking is, you don't get the big bucks to lay dudes out. Elite TEs are hard to find.

While some of us might be trying to give him what we may consider "sound advice", it may not be the best advice for that player. The individual in question should do the things to improve at what he feels he needs to improve at. The Redskins didn't draft draft him to be a pass blocker. They drafted him to be a pass catcher. I also understand the concerns about him leaving his feet because of the injury and turnover probability, but didn't we just watch Bush jump for extra yards from the 5 yard line and score?

The point is he cannot possibly listen to us all. He has to do what he is good at and what he is comfortable at doing and get better at those things that make him elite.
Yeah I gotcha, I was agreeing with you

I agree, he seems to fumble more as he flips himself over the defender, and it really looks like he's going to hurt himself one day doing that.

Re: its embarrassing to him --fred davis-- (blocking)

Our offense is as desperate for playmakers as it is for blocking. Fred Davis has insane talent as a catch and run TE. Cooley is one of my favorite players, but I'll say right now Davis' ability/athleticism exceed Cooley's. He needs to work on his skills...it's an absolute shame he didn't get time w/ Al Saunders (another retarded irony of Snyder's decision to fire one of the best TE offensive coordinators in football and immediately draft the best college TE). Anyway, I say let Davis do what he can do best and figure out how to scheme the damn offense so he's not forced to stay in and block too much. Jones should help...and Buges needs to whip this sorry bunch into shape yesterday!

I read an article where Davis said he was going to be working with Wach (our TE coach) on his blocking and is glad he has the 2 weeks to get it down.. it'll be a big focus for him he said.. I'll try to find it if it hasn't been posted

update:

Redskins Insider - Davis now must 'really come to play'

As a matter of fact tell him to stop trying to jump defenders too lol

I think that Davis is going to have a very solid career though

Re: its embarrassing to him --fred davis-- (blocking)

While the blocking is still his biggest problem, I took notice of the play where Davis bulled through two tacklers to gain 3-4 yards after contact for a first down. That is exactly what we want to see, as opposed to jumping and getting tripped up short of first down yardage, which had been his signature move in his limited opportunities with the ball.

I really don't understand the concept of dealing young players for picks. I mean wouldn't common sense tell you to deal a veteran and keep your young players?

lol yeah let's develop a young guy and promptly trade him away.

Portis isn't much for trade bait at this point anyway.
