Also I do look forward into going deep into FA and getting a bunch of players because this team needs an offseason rebuilding like the dolphins had two years ago and the saints had the year they signed brees. (miami 1-15 to 10-6 playoffs; New orleans 3-13 to 10-6 playoffs) they brought in a load of players and replaced them with a load of players.
There will be approximately 212 players that without a new CBA will be RFA as opposed to UFA. There's not going to be a great deal to chose from without giving up DP for UFA, With only five DP available in this years draft, I'm sure the interest in UFA will be limited if at all.

Re: RI: Allen: 'We're going 100 mph getting ready for free agency'

You know, I am not upset about changing the offense, but I am not sold on changing the defense. All signs point towards moving to a 3-4 defense. Personally I do not like the 3-4 and never have. Personal preference I guess, but I believe that it is easier to run gut, power, and dive plays on against the double bubble. In my opinion that makes us more vulnerable against the Giants and Brandon Jacobs who have basically owned our asses for the past decade. On the flip side we should be more competative defensively against Philly and Dallas with that defense, but I thought that we were already pretty good against those guys. I don't know maybe I'm still depressed about the last ten years but the defense wasn't as broke as the offense last year so I don't understand the need to change everything. Of course if we start winning it will change my mindset completely. Until then I am skeptical about the change of defensive scheme.

Unless we could be fortunate enough to land a player like Vince Wilfork who could be available and is a true NT. That's the major position for concern when thinking of the switch to a 3-4. Not convinced Haynesworth could be counted on to play the position. Changing both the offense and the defense is going to be a team in transition at least for a while until all the various principle's have been throughly adopted.

Re: RI: Allen: 'We're going 100 mph getting ready for free agency'

I'm honestly open to any change at this point. For the first time in a while I feel like we're in good hands. Ok, I honestly can't remember the last time I felt like we were really in good hands. Even with Gibbs we still had Vinny looming over things like a black cloud. Onward and upward!!

Dan Snyder - when Zorn's firing was announced -“This has been an extremely difficult season for our organization and for the fans.

Bruce Allen - "I just know that last place is not Redskins football," "Last place two years in a row is not Redskins football."

Dan Snyder - After the win in Dallas (that seems oh so long ago) - "Redskins football is violent, physical, violent f****** football! If we play that way we will win...if we don't...we will lose. "

Basically, Dan has a vision of what football should be and he calls it Redskins football, Bruce Allen is simply echoing the team owner's desire to play hard nose, winning football.

They're formulating trade ideas just like every other team not named the Saints or Colts is doing this week
Good points.

Even though I wouldn't be against them at least hearing offers for CC, I can see why they don't feel the need to go down that road.

I would hate to lose Cooley. Not only is he a gamer with...TALENT. He seems to be well grounded in the reality between team loyalty and the business side of the NFL.

I'm looking forward to seeing Cooley play this year. In a REDSKINS uniform!

i think bruce allen gives a few examples right here:

Bruce Allen-"We're going to be a disciplined team." BA on Shannahan-"He wants us to be in top shape physically and he wants players who want to get better mentally. So much of this game is preparing during the week."


i'll add my own thoughts of what he means:
win, lose or draw, the redskins are gonna be a tuff,disciplined,smart,competative,ever improving football team.they're gonna practice hard,prepare hard and play hard each and every week.

at 100mph, that means the Redskins will have covered 67,200 miles when FA starts.

If the circumference of the Earth at the equator is 24,900 miles, that means the Redskins will have travelled around the globe just about 3 times (or a quarter of the way to the moon) to find Redskins Football players!

Of course, BA may have been speaking figuratively, but maybe not :-)

So do you want to keep the old crappy offense? We're 4-12, w/ a new coaching staff, thats what they do. If it takes a year or two of bad teams to have 10 years of success isn't that worth it?
