That was my thought as well. I thought maybe since Shanahan is famaliar with him and he was here for a sandwich, maybe there can be a place for him. Even if dosen't get carries maybe he can contribute as a returner without fumbling.

Re: Isn't Cornerback as Big a Need as OL?

I think the redskins defense, including the defensive backs, have played pretty good this year -- even though they just got destroyed by the giants.

I think everyone is overreacting just a little because the redskins were embarrassed on Monday night. The problem with the whole entire redskins defense , including the coaches, is that they don't adjust very well when things aren't going well -- so everything just snowballs and they keep making the same mistakes over and over. So they have played pretty good when they gameplan well, but when that plan doesn't work they don't have a plan B and the opposing offense can take advantage of those weaknesses the whole game. I guess you can say the same thing about the redskins offensive gameplanning and adjustments this season; the difference being -- the offense for the beginning of the season didn't really bring a good gameplan coming in.

You're speaking to the president of the "Shanahan can't draft" club. But even though he misses on a lot of picks, the running backs who PLAY always perform.
Mr. President, would you agree that he does better drafting offensive players rather than defensive players? I'm hardly defending his draft record here, just noticing that his record on the defensive side is especially lame. He drafted Al Wilson and...well, that's about it.

If he's a scheme fit, and he doesn't cost anything, then he can be a douchebag who scores 8 TDs for my team. But those are the kind of guys that you have to be right on, and SmootSmack was pointing out that Shanahan has brought these guys in, and then found out they couldn't play at a later time.
Blount would be interesting in rd 4 or 5 . GTripp , what do you think of , E. Williams , Rinehart , M. Williams as backups or being able to be capable starters in 2010 ? Not that I want ALL three to go into camp as our top prospects , just wanted your opinion based on what you have seen on film , thanks .

Re: Isn't Cornerback as Big a Need as OL?

No other need is nearly as great as the need for offensive linemen. Our OL is an unmitigated disaster area and there is no way we can compete for a playoff spot in 2010 unless it is addressed via Free Agency and the Draft during the offseason. Honestly, there isn't a single OL on our roster who I would miss if he were to be replaced.

Sadly...I agree.

still don't know why we got rid of him and dorsey and kept mason, alridge and dorsey were what i consider change of pace backs, because they had some serious speed and dorsey is a sick return guy

Yup. That's why I purposely left him off my list

VINNY! The CBs suck pretty bad, but I think that Barnes will end up being good for some reason... just a hunch

I think an interior line of Mike Williams, Rinehart, and Edwin Williams would be better than an interior line of Will Montgomery, Derrick Dockery, and Casey Rabach. I'd actually like to see that starting OL for one year, with fresh blood at the tackle positions.

But it's easily screwed up. A line of Dockery, Edwin Williams, and Mike Williams would get no push in the running game. No athletcism. A line of Dockery, E. Williams, and Rinehart would look a lot like this years line. Bringing Rabach back would delay the inevitable, I think.

Re: Isn't Cornerback as Big a Need as OL?

At this point the defense is ranked 4th and the offense is ranked close to last. Which is more important?

I think everyone now see's the issue with not having a decent OL or atleast they should. This year should be set up to fix the offense. Next year should be set up to continue with the Offense and tweeking the defense. 3rd year should be all about tweeking whatever needs tweeking. 4th year BPA.....SB somewhere in there.
