Re: Prospects for Shanahans offense/Hasletts 3-4 D

Skins' interest in Sproles is pretty genuine. Though I have a feeling Sproles is planning to use the Redskins to get what he really wants. A big contract from the Chargers.

Not sure Sproles is aware that he'll be dealing with Bruce Allen.

Re: Prospects for Shanahans offense/Hasletts 3-4 D

Lombardi reporting that Rolle will be resigned in Arizona. They just don't want to pay him 12 mil for one year. Is there a reason why they can't just extend his contract? Why cut him so he was free to sign with another team? Just seems a little risky.

.......I think the offseason has officially gotten on my nerves.....

Can't wait for Redskins 1st workouts on March 15 to hear the Shanahan's talk about guys like Brennan and Alridge so we can gauge what direction we may be goin in.
You mean you can't wait to hear some football talk based in reality? I hear ya there.

Re: Prospects for Shanahans offense/Hasletts 3-4 D

This is from Casserly's comments about picking up some of the FA OL....

Quote:
This year's class of unrestricted free agents is not considered an overwhelming one. Green Bay's Chad Clifton and Arizona's Mike Gandy appear to be the top tackles available. San Francisco's Tony Pashos played under Chris Foerster, Washington's new offensive line coach, with the 49ers and in Baltimore. While he seemed like an early favorite, 49ers head coach Mike Singletary said last week that he's hopeful Pashos will be locked up before he can hit the open market.
I honestly hope Pashos is smart enough to stall his talks with the 49ers until the market opens. I think since he already knows Foersters offensive scheme plus knowing the Skins need OL he would atleast wait and see what the Skins offer him. Hell I'd take whatever the Skins offered just to get away from the nut job of a HC out there.

It will be interesting to see how many of those named wait to test the market or if they are slightly interested in working under Shanahan since he's known to alway have the best offensive line in the NFL.

Matty- You guys sound really silly right now. We are the Redskins with Dan Snyder as the owner. We will be in play for some free agents. The faces may have changed, but the business stays the same young fella. I honestly think it will be between us and the Seahawks for most players. Although it will be between the Buccs and Bears for the services of Peppers.

It may come down to his personal preference as well vs. money. I mean taking the job with the Skins could mean more money then he's getting yes, but how much more is the question, then there is the fact that Shanahan always had a decent running game which will pad his stats.

Then there's who do you work for.... Norv who hasn't mad it to a SB as a HC yet or Shanahan who has?

Under the radar pick up- Kyle Van DonBosh to play that other dend position. Played with Haynesworth before and has a high motor plus size.

I want to agree with you but if Haslett is enamored as the media said with Peppers..... I can see us picking him up. Both the Bucs and Bears are not known to be teams who spend money so if it comes down to a hand full of teams I can see him coming to the Skins. But.... Peppers supposedly has made a comment that he wants to go to a team that is the hunt for a championship. I'm not doubting the Skins but 4-12 does not ring of SB next yr and I would guess as most when starting a new HC it will take 3-5 yrs to get there. Does Peppers have 3-5 yrs left in his tank? and is he willing to be patient?

We sound silly? Really?

Of course we will be in play for some free agents, some being the key word.

Re: Prospects for Shanahans offense/Hasletts 3-4 D

Sb- normally I would agree with you, but I think this team has a faster turn around time. Last year the players gave up on Zorn. The team is better than they looked. There is a new buz around reskins park with Shanny here and Vinny gone. Secondly the Skins have the freedom to go after who ever they want with no cap to stay under. I honestly think we are a offensive line and runningback away from being back in contention.

You mean the Skins' wallet won't be wide open as in years past?

That's silly talk.

Re: Prospects for Shanahans offense/Hasletts 3-4 D

lets not forget the year after bruce came to the buccs he sign all those Raiders and went on a spending spree in Tampa. It wouldn't be out of character. I think it will be up to shanny who we get.

just an offensive line away. Nothing major, ya know, just a minor part of a football team.

Please note that that is a complete OL, and not one OL player, away. I want the Skins to get to the SB, but between our schedule, yet another new coach, and an unproven line (however it is constituted), we will be a solid team, but I hope that anyone coming in is looked at as atleast a 4 yr player. That's why Sproles would be my number 1 request, at 27 he has his best years coming up.

I sincerely hope I'm wrong but I see it taking longer. Your right we need an offensive line, and I would almost forgo the RB position if I had to not touch one for a year. That's hoping Portis can make a come back, Ganther looks awsome in Shanahan's system, and Alridge becomes the playmaker the team needs. The good news is OL and RB is deep according to all the pundits.

I like JC but the team needs, and especially Shanahan needs, a QB who is accurate with the ball. If the team can find that person either in FA, draft, or Colt finally steps up and shines with accuracy then I'll agree with you that I like our chances of doing pretty good cause I too agree the team is better then they played last year. I think a lot of it was on Zorn and his screwed up scheme, along with man-to-man blocking in a scheme which is supposed to thrive in a zone blocking scheme, plus our injuries.

I guess I'm saying "IF" everything fell into place I could see us making the playoffs in 2 yrs. Give the team a year to learn the system and learn to work together and pick up the remaining missing pieces. I'm concerned about the defense now though. All those years coaching and Haslett really never had a break out season and although I think the defense could be better a lot has to happen.... it has to be the right players in the right scheme, all the players have to buy into it, and maybe it will have a chance. No different then our OL where we have man-to-man blocking OL built for man-to-man and we are going to be changing to a zone blocking system.

Re: Prospects for Shanahans offense/Hasletts 3-4 D

Well after watching most of the combine I come away with my top prospects in terms of whom the redskins should get in terms of over all value and who fits Shanahans offense/Hasletts 3-4 D :

1) Sam Bradford (puts on 13 lbs of muscle and just talks at the combine, then all of a sudden he's become the all but certain first overall pick)

2) Russell Okung

3)Ndamakong Suh (just watch what he did to texas's OL, and you'll see how good he really is he single handedly dominated that game and is an exception for us to get even though he may not fit the 3-4)

4) Eric Berry

5) CJ Spiller (the best RB in the draft IMO)

6) Charles Brown (looks like the next best LT in the draft; is very quick on his feet and would fit our offense very well)

7) Mike Iupati (the best guard to come out since Steve Hutchinson, has a mean streak, and I believe he could play in any offense)

8) Bryan Bulaga (has been injured and looks more like a RT in the NFL, and not a LT, doesn't really look like a T for this offense but has potential to be the best T in this draft 5 years from now)

9) Joe Haden (didn't do as good as people thought he would at the combine, but just look at the film and you'll see how good he really is; he's low because we have OL and QB needs before CB needs plus I'm assuming we'll probably go after a CB in FA)

10) Rolando McClain (didn't really do much at the combine, and people are saying he was good just because Saban's system makes him look good, I don't buy it, I also think 3-4 MLB is one of the last things we should worry about)

11) Maurkice Pouncey (the best center in the draft, big and mobile, but we'll probably get a later round center or just rely on Rabach with a later round rookie to groom; and don't sleep on Edwin Williams or Kory Lichtenstreiger)

12) Sean Weatherspoon (is perfect for this defense because he's a 4-3 OLB and a 3-4 MLB, basically a young dansby, but I also think we could have dansby, and like I said before MLB isn't a top need)
