More proof what a top o-line can do for a team.
But why would you want to follow the exception rather than the rule?

That's like saying you rather not wear your seat belt because a few guys survived car crashes because they chose not to wear their seat belt.

If you look at not only last season, but the last ten seasons, it becomes obvious what the formula is for success.

and a top defense

and good rushing

so maybe that would've worked for us, who knows

if you can make the argument that the line is our only weakness that's fine, hell even the biggest, it arguably is.. but a line alone won't do it

either way, we'll see offensive improvements with a better line.. does it mean we have to use pick 4 on it? nope
The last real celebrated success this team has known was mainly due to the play of the offensive line. "The Hogs" you remember them. Some have gone as far as to say the entire group should be inducted into the HOF. I will never underestimate the importance of a great O-line, and how much it means to the success of a football team. That's why I will continue to sugest that Chris Samuels replacement be drafted because it's not likely we'll find him under any other circumstance.

Now I'll agree we don't neccessarily NEED to use the #4 pick for it to be mission accomplished, but it's a position that definitely has to be addressed, and I'm sure you would agree.

Good Post. QB's are held to a higher standard PERIOD. They are supposed to add at least 4 wins on their own IMO.

I'm not a fan of Rex but based on the fact he know's the system it's a good pick up.

Picking up Tom Brady in the 6th round?

I don't think the Jets are an exception to the rule. I mean the Vikes were successful partly because their offensive line kept Brett Favre upright. The Dolphins offensive line has been one of the reasons their teams has done well despite having Pennington or Hennig. Baltimore has a great offensive line and have been successful because of it.

Granted not all of these teams drafted first round lineman..well actually they did, but they put a lot of effort into building their lines. Right now we have no line, and it'd be foolish to spend a high round pick that is either going to sit in the bench or would be thrown to the fire behind a suspect line.

I agree that the replacement needs to be found.. and agree that it doesn't have to be the #4, so I definitely agree.

If it is the number 4, awesome, if it's the 2nd round, awesome. If it's next year for a stud and we have someone who completes the spot this year, awesome. We can only wait so long and it's gotta be soon; this year or next.

Re: Redskins Sign Grossman

He becomes the veteran QB and likely the Redskins will deal Campbell during the draft after they take a rookie QB early. I would like to see us ship Campbell, McIntosh, Davis, #1 (4th. overall), and 2011 2nd. round pick to the Rams for their #1 (1st. overall) and select Bradford.

I'd say we probably have quite a few fans on here that weren't around for those days. OL needs to be addressed we only have 5 picks not including ?????? trades we need to pick wisely.

That is why my example of David Carr vs Mike Williams applies, while your example of Ferguson vs Leinart does not.
Now your making some sense with the first sentence.


Your premises about "surprise" and GM omniscience is still a load of bull and you have not produced real evidence of a fatal flaw in Leinart. Continue worshipping you god, Polian.

So why weren't the Vikings successful before Brett Favre? Why weren't the Jets successful WITH Brett Favre? The Dolphins went 7-9 last year, and the Ravens went 9-7.

The rule is you need good QB play or it doesn't matter how good of an offensive line is. That's why the Jets are an exception, similar to the 2000 Ravens who also saw fit to dump Trent Dilfer immediately after.

I know a lot of people my age that couldn't tell you anything about those times

I was young but I remember it well

then again 20 years ago was a different game, we had great chemistry on the line though, something that probably will NEVER fall out of fashion

Sure, but "The Hogs" weren't built on first round picks

Russ Grimm (3rd round)
Mark May (1st round)
George Starke (11th round)
Jeff Bostic (undrafted)
Joe Jacoby (undrafted)
Jim Lachey (1st round-Chargers; joined Redskins in 5th season)
Raleigh McKenzie (11th round)
R.C. Thielemann (2nd round-Falcons; joined Redskins in 8th season)
Mark Schlereth (10th round)
Ed Simmons (6th round)
