Re: At Seasons End Ganther or Rock Who Do You Keep?

I LOVE how Ganther finishes runs... getting that extra 2 yards that the good pounders do.

You keep him at 15 carries a game & have a Mason, Aldridge, or 5th round pick splitting carries with him, and I think you are ok.

I have always said, do not pay big for RBs... if you have a line that can run block, you can throw Joe Schmo in there and get yardage with holes to run through.... yet we owe Portis like 10 mil next year right? so this ALL may be moot as we may be stuck w Portis & Ganther mix.

No longer a need for Cartwright or Randel El (who is COMPLETELY WORTHLESS).

I was wondering who that was and what they think now, because I think honestly, this guy is the best running back we have, maybe even better than Portis (blocking is my only question I have about him)

Just have to point out, and I'm sure someone else will remember this and back me up, in Ganther's first play as a Redskin he picked up a blitzer and STUCK him.. I remember thinking then, hey he blocks like Portis but he must not be able to run (trying to figure out why he was FA, but I think it was mostly because he is slow... lol... you see him get run down in no time on the one play today? lol)

Regardless, he is a tough S.O.B. and will block and run hard... which will make him susceptible to injury, hence the need for him to split carries... but he can block

Re: At Seasons End Ganther or Rock Who Do You Keep?

I really like Ganther and Rock and would love to see both of them back. My question is, can both of them hold up through an entire season? That I do not know, however I do think it is time to make some changes in our rb position.

Re: At Seasons End Ganther or Rock Who Do You Keep?

Why is this an either or question? I understand for arguments sake, but why not keep both?

Re: At Seasons End Ganther or Rock Who Do You Keep?

okay assuming you keep only one for the sake of disucssion (i agree why not both) i guess i'm in the minority: keep the rock. ganther's a better RB because we have jack squadoley for RB. yeah you can put thomas back for returns but rock does returns well, is the kick coverage ace, can run in a pinch, is absolutely the kind of locker room guy you want, and we can pick up an RB elsewhere (FA, mid-late draft, etc.). i just think rock is WAY underappreciated.

Let them both compete, but all things being equal, you have to like Ganther's youth. His balance was amazing on the long run after catch.

Yeah, I was wondering the same thing. Unless it's the end of Rock's contract or something.

Rock had a good game in Dallas running and receiving. In fact, I remember thinking after that game that they should have been playing him more on offense.

Re: At Seasons End Ganther or Rock Who Do You Keep?

we've shown we can play against top teams without portis or betts, i think we can keep both, and either keep betts or portis, or dump both for a new guy.

Re: At Seasons End Ganther or Rock Who Do You Keep?

Ganther = Ryan Grant. I said it in another thread, another teams trash is our treasure. The Titans cast off could be a real contributor for us moving forward.

I say keep both Rock and Ganther as of right now. Our RB sitch is up in the air big time. Betts is coming off very serious knee surgery, Portis' health and contract are huge issues, and we still don't know if there will be a new CBA moving into next year.

I've gotta think with his mileage, injuries, and huge cap numbers, an uncapped year will mean the end of Clinton's career as a Redskin. Can't say I'd bat an eye at his departure.

Re: At Seasons End Ganther or Rock Who Do You Keep?

Easy. You keep both, along with Mason, Aldridge and Fb's Sellers and Williams. Plus add in the high drafted RB this spring, snyderatto has never seen a offensive skill position player they did not want to draft, forgetting all about OL again.

The really interesting question and better thread title:
Portis and Betts have a future with Redskins.?.?
The other one is Randy Thomas, the guy can not stay healthy.

Re: At Seasons End Ganther or Rock Who Do You Keep?

Keep Ganther...

Our Oline is actaully looking solid these past games with the younger guys in there and Williams at gaurd.

In a dream scenario..

Trade Portis, El, and a late round pick for a 1st round pick

Pick up a Olineman, and QB in the 1st.

Toby Gerhart in the 2nd

Add depth to our secondary and possibly LB in the 3rd.

If I was Cerrato, this is what I would do.
