Maybe if we're talking a number 4 or number 5 receiver as somewhat as an afterthought (or if we get rid of ARE or Moss or something).

I get what you guys are saying, but it doesn't necessarily mean that we'll be ignoring other spots. I wouldn't draft a WR or trade for one... FA or something, sure. That doesn't take anything away from OL or QB.

I'd like to see Thomas and Kelly have the 1/2 put on their shoulders, Moss in the slot, Mitchell getting some love at 4, and ARE in another uniform.

The only guy I'd want is Marshall. Kelly had one good game the whole year. And the one good game he had was against back ups. Marshall makes everyone on the field better. If he's avialable we need to try and get him.

You mean "if he's not benched for a bad attitude"?

And again, Shanny and Marshall had a fallout in Denver. It is unlikely that Shanny wants to repeat that experience.

Thank you for keeping folks on the track, Matty.

The WRs are not great but they are not the weakest link on the offense by a LONG shot...

Kelly was really only given the opportunity to have one good game. In typical fashion it took an injury to let a guy shine. Sure he won't have that same game every week, but if you've been watching Kelly you know a bit of what he can bring, but when he only gets 2 balls his way, that's what happens.

One of my biggest Kelly highlights is his out of bounds "catch" that he had a couple of weeks ago. It really showed what he could do.

Until the issue is resolved nothing else matters. Skilled players are rendered moot without an O-line. O-line anybody!!

Thank you...well said....now i dont have to post since you handled it. Good job.

Re: Add a Veteran WR?

I was not aware of the fallout in between Shanahan and Marshall. If that is true I would understand not bringing Brandon here.

boom. hit it on the head. the three mentioned will be more than serviceable, especially with two talented TEs added into the mix. take whatever we were going to use to get a "vet WR," and put it towards an O-Line.

Re: Add a Veteran WR?

I completely understand the arguement of address the Oline first, RB and other needs. But Shanny WILL want his own WR in this offense. I will be extremely surprised if he puts DT and Kelly at the 1, 2. Plus neither of these guys is a 1. ARE needs to get the f*ck out of town yesterday with Zorn, Portis, and several others. We will have a spot for a new receiver and I am NOT for drafting anybody else. We dont have to break the bank for a Vet and I wouldnt think Allen will with so many other needs. I dont have a problem with a Nate Bulerson type...solid route running, good hands guy...the whole arguement of impeding on the young guys development is bs, Shanny is going to be great for there development and we can still rotate them in, and believe DT or Kelly, one of these guys can come at least as a solid no. 2 receiver....I think Shanny is going to show a sh*t-ton of our guys the door on offense which is a positive in my book

Re: Add a Veteran WR?

I BELIEVE that the way the Broncos acquired Brandon Marshall in the first place was to use one of the draft picks they got from the Redskins as a result of the Skins trading up to get Jason Campbell. It is more owrk that it is worth to go and find the genesis of that draft selection, but I think that is the case.


Now if that is true, acquiring Marshall to catch passes from Jason Campbell would bring closure to the circumstances surrounding those drafts from a couple of years ago. I don't know if it would help the Redskins' team immensely, but it would effect closure.


And that is your Feelgood Moment of the Day...

The received our 4th-round pick in 2006, but I can't find whether it was ours that got them Marshall or Dumervil with that pick (both drafted in 2006, 4th-round).

That draft was one one the BEST EVER. They got Cutler, Scheffler, Marshall, Dumervil, a RG in Kuper.

Re: Add a Veteran WR?

All we need is for Thomas or Kelly to have a breakout season. With that we can give our QB a better weapon in the endzone, and give him a tall receiver to throw to. Maybe look into trading cooley with hopes that Davis continues to make progress.

Re: Add a Veteran WR?

We SHOULD suck it up and build the O line with this years high draft picks, trade away everyone over 30, accept the fact that we're gonna suck next year, and then go after skill positions in the future. A good, young O-line gives you a big window to build the offense, BUT...........Shanny is taking Clausen. SO,...

Re: Add a Veteran WR?

I'm happy with Moss, Thomas, Kelly, and Mitchell as our WR's going into next year. It's time to STOP focusing resources on WR's and DB's and to bolster the O-line.
