You say this as if the acquisition of Clifton/Pashos/Parker/Foote would have actually provided premium performance.

If you wanted premium performance in this free agent class, you pretty much had to chase Peppers, Brackett, or Kampman (or Ben Watson, if you had a need at TE). We let those players sign elsewhere, so you're already shopping in the bargain bin at that point.

Regular gas can be highly-priced, especially WHEN SUPPLY IS LOW.

Rather than being gun shy, what if we aren't offering much guaranteed money. Since we know that camp will be highly competitive, i think that we are probably low balling the guaranteed side of the equation. i mean the only player signed is a versatile guy who has the ability to fill more than one spot on our line, and is comfortable both starting and being a backup. and i do like stating the obvious

Re: Is the new Redskins Front Office Gun Shy?

they're doing the right thing. i'd like to see them be a little more aggressive but they're taking the approach that it's going to take some time to be a contender. we're not going to be a contender next year so no need to go out and over pay for a guy like peppers.

that and probably the shorter term offerings could be part of it

Now both players signed are like that. They're stop gaps between the team we have to field for a year and the team we will be the year after next. Let the rebuilding keep going strong.

Here's one example of that cautious backlash, from Renegade7 at ExtremeSkins:

I'm still standing by my "3-year mercy grace period" I promised Allen and Shanny, but I can't lie, I'm agitated right now. I understand we don't want to overpay people, but it's an uncapped year AND WE STILL WON'T BUDGE AT ALL!? I understand this method of maddness works for some people, but how often does this work for a 4-12 football that doesn't want to be 4-12 anymore?

And another, from diehardskins2982 at TheWarpath.net:

Like a person with a powerful weapon scared to use, is the new Front Office Gun shy? Has Bruce Allen and Shanny been overly patient or doing the right thing in the uncapped year?
i like how diehards comment is more of a reasonable statement of facts rather than a ruh-tarded statment of how to panic and and spend big in fa to improve a bad team, extreme skins is so bush league

Bigger forums tend to have more people. More people=more fools. That ES has more dummies because of that doesn't justify the snobbery sometimes prevalent here.
