He's made of glass and McCoy is a younger, healthier clone of him.



Please don't come to the Redskins.

Re: Eagles release B. Westbrook, per NFL Network

I'm not trying to Skins bash but just trying to compare and contrast the styles of competitive teams in this league against ours.

The Eagles organization basically cut their best standout offensive player when he was close to his peak, up or down. That had to be a tough decision for them to make but it was made and with no real dire consequences to them other than sentimental as they have young replacements ready to pick up that slack.

The Eagles made a decision like this last year when they cut a pivotal defenseman in Brain Dawkins, yet their team as a whole still managed to make the playoffs.

Where do you think we'd be next year if we, contractual consequences aside, cut Portis and Fletcher this offseason? Our hopes on next season would seem really dim compared to the more competitive teams in the league.

Bottom line, to me, is we'll be more competitive NFL wide when we finally bring in the long overdue depth we've needed since the Snyder spending spree days. Here's to seeing our Skins grow deeper and stronger...Hail to the Redskins.

Word is that Portis will not be the next one released. Much to some of your dismay.

And no, I don't want Westbrook or LT on this team. CP has more to offer at this point than either one of those guys.

It has sounded like all along that Shanny plans to use Portis and thinks he can have success, IF he cooperates. If the Coach can install his Plug-and-Play RB system like he had in Denver, Portis, Alridge, Mason, Ganther, Betts, Tomlinson or even Matty (after P90X) could all be weekly 100 yd/game rushers.

Not surprising that he was (or will be) cut. It was expected. What's shocking is that Byron Westbrook has an NFL job and Brian doesn't.

Maybe we could sign Brian Westbrook and have him pretend to be Byron during the week...who of course spends the week pretending to be Brian. Won't that be fun?!

lmao. I never understood why if he was such a good "Brian Westbrook Clone" during those two weeks of the year why we didnt try gettin him a few carries during a game. Wit good genes, he prolly could have benefitted us more there than at CB lol

The question (where Westbrook is concerned) Will anyone be willing to take a chance on a player that's suffered two concussions and has considered retirement as a result.

This is true. But don't think it will last long. One is looking for work, the other is soon to be looking for work.

Lamont Jordan was released. Does he count as the next one released?

That sounds good maybe cutting them is the reason they only scratched their way into the playoffs. Maybe with those two players they do more.
