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

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.
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)

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 what you're trying to say is that Matt Leinart should have gone higher and should be ranked as Ferguson's equal in terms of value.

Neither have amounted to much despite the offensive lines put in front of them.
And Drew Brees was also a second rounder. Draft position does not tell the individual player's skill abilities, it just represents how people viewed their likeliness to fail. Good 2nd round QBs probably come around the QB draft class is deep.

No first rounders? LOL.

I'd be ok with drafting Bradford if we could at least have our LT position secure. At this point we haven't, and the idea of drafting Bradford with the line we have right now is scary.

Boy!! You really love you some Sam Bradford don't you?

And welcome! to your latest environment.

Drew Brees was taken #32. Now is he as a second round quarterback the rule or the exception? In the last fifteen years, the only second round quarterbacks to amount to anything close to being a successful starter are Jake Plummer and Drew Brees. And Jake Plummer was a seasoned veteran by the time he started being respectable.

The entire line wasn't built on first rounders, and Lachey was a 1st rounder that we got in his fifth year in the NFL.

And the Chargers dumped him and went after a first round QB, and well that worked out fine...but not SB fine. Also a 6th rounder by the name of Tom Brady also has done a few things here and there.

Look we get it, first round QBs typically do a good job, I just don't think one is right for the Redskins right now.

Re: Redskins Sign Grossman

Hello, newbie here, thought I would tip my toe in on this one. Why not Derek Anderson before the Cards got him??? He is younger and has many more tools to work with, wasn't expensive, and could have actually competed with JC, and who knows, Shanny might have made him a pro bowler again. What do you think?

And how good was Tom Brady's offensive line? Check out how many times he was sacked in 2001.

Nope, I agree Leinart was rated lower than Ferguson by the Jets, but how much lower is only known to the Jets scouting department. But they still took the LT even though the QB was not that much lower rated, assuming that the team draft grades corresponds to actual draft order.


It's just that you cannot grasp the concept of multiple expected outcomes and thus lack of surprise at any of them and that you cling to a preemptive collective decision-making model when it comes to teams deciding the draft order.

18 times, which was third for fewest sacks allowed. May you meant 2002...oh wait, they were in the top 10 of fewest sacks allowed.

Yes but you're diverting from your fanatical argument about first round QBs. Hell, wasn't Campbell a first round QB and now you're trying to get rid of him for another first round QB?

Again, I get what you are trying to say, I'm just not as fanatical about drafting a LT as you are about drafting a QB. I just think it makes sense given the success of a few teams that have been in similar situation as we have.

I was hinting at him being the exception. DUHHHHH. Read the whole damn post next time.
