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.
I thought Singletary had won over the troops last season...no?

Part of the reason among others, as to why Bruce was excited to come here was the freedom to spend money on players. The Glazers have become notoriously cheap as of late especially with the recent explosion of the team.

I don't know how much they're involved at Man U but they traded the Lebron James of soccer in Christiano Ronaldo for $90 million then to calm down the fans they had to make a public statement promising to spend that money on players. If Snyder made that deal how many people would be worried about him spending that money on players?

The Glazers are slowly reverting towards the Bidwell and Mike Browns of the league. Though I will admit that part of it might be because they're maxed out financially.

But anyway back to Bruce, basically the freedom to spend more money was part of the reason this job was so attractive to him.

Glazer family promise to spend Ronaldo money on new players for United

Manchester United's American owners, the Glazer family, have insisted they will fund Sir Alex Ferguson's plans to replace Cristiano Ronaldo with "world-class players" after dismissing the "paranoia" of supporters who fear the £80 million transfer fee will be used to service the club's £700 million debt.

What sort of spending spree did he go on in Tampa exactly?

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

^ In 2004 Tampa let go of vets Sapp, Lynch, and Keshawn Johnson. They brought in 19 free agents including Brian Griese, Charlie Garner, Joey Galloway, Matt O’dwyer, Matt Stichcomb, Jason Widdle, Derrick Deese, Todd Steussie, Darrell Russell, Ian Gold, Mario Edwards, and Josh Bidwell to punt. Don't believe the Hype Matty different faces, same game!

Of those 19 FA...I only recognize the first three. It's not exactly the Skins' FO approach during Snyder's ownership...signing huge star players for enormous contracts. Tampa did things on the cheap under Allen if I'm not mistaken.

...my take is Allen thinks he can spot talent and acquire it economically. Now his boss is willing to spend whatever it takes. The important thing is Allen and Shanahan keep Snyder out of the process (entirely if possible) and make wise football decisions to build a deep, talented and cohesive roster.

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

In 2004 those names meant something. they replaced their whole offensive line. If you are advocating getting players on the cheap, you typically get what you pay for... cheap play. I don't think that is what shanny an allen look to do, friday will show us all the truth.

.......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.
welcome to possibilities and evaluations, it's nothing new

Not sure Sproles is aware that he'll be dealing with Bruce Allen.
especially considering that the news is bigger there than here on the interest of us

agent + local media = there you have it

Whoever's ready for real news at that point will be sorely disappointed, but you know that.

Redskins Insider - Redskins explore their nose-tackle options in draft

as discussed in the RI report above, anyone think we will go after one of the NT studs in the draft? Dan Williams out of Tennessee, Alabama's Terrence Cody and North Carolina's Cam Thomas are the three mentioned. i assume that we would have to use our second round pick to get one of them.

Not sure I really see your point at all.

He came in and cut ties with a lot of high priced vets, and brought in a bunch of no-names basically. I don't really see how this is any sort of spending spree. Any idea what they paid for these guys? I don't see anyone that would have commanded a huge deal, certainly not like what we've seen the Skins dish out.

no one wanted him last year. i'm sure no one else will this year, especially with all the DT talent in the draft.
