re: Samuels Will Hold Noon Press Conference on Thursday to Announce Retirement

I think the press conference will be on Thursday at Noon (at least I think that's what I heard)

And now with the Bears releasing Pace, he might retire as well. So three of the best LTs of the best decade could all be leaving the sport at the same time

Chris had the honor of doing something that may be considered rare, in his ten year career with the Redskins he had the distinction of blocking for ten different QB's.

Hope he enjoys retirement as much as I am....He'll be missed.

Shows you how bad the franchise has been run the last 10 years.

Is this supposed to make a case for the draft QB crowd and the resulting hidden premise that having a good QB means not a stud LT is not necessary?

I wish him the best. He is up there with the Hogs, Lachey, Tre, and the real old timer Skin linemen. Since he is young, he has a much better shot at not having major issues as he gets older, as long as he loses weight.

I am not sure that is the case, since we drafted 2 QBs in the first round within that decade, so you can't fault the FO for not trying. Spurrier destroyed Ramsey, then Gibbs cut him, then Gibbs gets JC. The franchise went to shit when Dan showed Marty the door. Marty turned it around with Tony Banks for godsake, so you need more than a great QB to win. You could make the same case as Norv's late mid season firing as the turning point also. Norv still had an above .500 record and could still have made a playoff run. But we all know what started it all, when we thought the great Heath Schuler was going to be the shit and he was a total bust. That is what scares me about us gambling on Bradford. THese overhyped QBs are the ones that fail to produce most of the time. I like that Lefevour and Kafka did pretty well in the combine.

I'm really glad he's not coming back. Not that I wouldnt love Chris Samuels on the feild, but the thought of him risking the rest of his life is just crazy. He's thirty something, has all the money he could ask for... just live life with your family, Chris. You deserve it....Thanks for everything.

That's what it is to me, the lives of these people that sacrifice themselves for my entertainment far outweigh the possibilities. If you told me today that we could win a SB with him, but then he'd become paralyzed, I'd take another 4-12 without question. There's a life outside of and above sports and this is a great example of it. My biggest hope is that Chris can lead an outstanding life from here on out.

It was more a snarky way of pointing out that you need a whole team, OL, great QB, strong defense to win. You have to be able to plan and take advantage of the draft, free agency, and roster veterans to create a team that will compete year in, year out. We haven't seen that in a decade, and if MS/BA can accomplish it, regardless of what position they take in the first round of the draft, then that will be outstanding.

re: Samuels Will Hold Noon Press Conference on Thursday to Announce Retirement

got to meet samuels about a month ago out at redskins park he is a cool dude, just sat there and bs'ed with him for a while, talked about how he wants to coach and wants to stay in the area, i have no idea why.

he was always the player i gave s, but he really was one of the best redskins of the past decade sucks to see him go but it is by far the right thing to do. hopefully we can fill his spot with someone who can have half of ther consistancy he gave us. be interesting to hear his thoughts when he gives his retirement speech

I hope he has the chance to coach in the area. I always loved that Samuels embraced the culture and the history of the Redskins, and always seemed so enthusiastic about the idea of retiring in burgundy. Glad he gets to do that, and on his own terms.

Sucks to see CS go, he definitely had some more years left in him.

re: Samuels Will Hold Noon Press Conference on Thursday to Announce Retirement

It'll be interesting to see what kind of role Randy Thomas plays this year. Unless you count Dockery, he really is the last piece of the old guard that's still here. I have to imagine he will be the day one RG, but if he makes it to Week 3, that will be 2 times in the last 4 seasons he's plugged all the way to late September.

With that said, Thomas is still very clearly our best lineman, when healthy. But at this point, I'm not even sure that's average.
