Re: Dan Snyder's worst free-agent signing

Jeff George seems like a pretty easy answer. Both Deion and Haynesworth played as advertised. Archuleta underachieved badly, but that wasn't the fault of the signing, which had it's merits. George was going to be a wrongheaded move from the get go.

Deion, George, and Fat Al are all on Snyder.
His career was pretty much over when he got here. It's not completely unheard of for a skill position player (or defender) to be completely cooked by the age of 27, though it's very rare. I certainly haven't figured out a way to predict it.

I'm pretty sure that's what happened with Archuleta above all, is that he was a severely declining player in 2006, when there was almost no reason to think he would be, and he continued to decline after he left Washington. By 29, the guy couldn't even get a camp invite.

That's right, I said it.

Enter Offiss in 3...2...1...
And at this point if he doesn't stay with the Raiders he will bounce from team to team as an eternal backup.

Another in the proud history of NFL backup qb's with Redskins ties. If we keep it up, we may have a backup on every other team in the league, and when the time is right, we will activate our sleeper cell qb plan

Re: Dan Snyder's worst free-agent signing

We do need to thank the Chicago Bears for helping us out of a few of the worst ones...Arch and Lloyd. They took our trash...TWICE.

Were these really Snyder's signings, or Vinny's? I have the feeling Snyder just wrote the checks.

I could see JC being more of a Stan Humphries or Trent Green...career takes off after he leaves us...and all we have are the "what if" and "why not with us" questions.

Oh and BTW, i watched that dude workout last summer. He still has a rifle for an arm. He flicked it 60 yards or more like it was cake. He still makes all the throws. Why that guy isn't even a backup somewhere i can't understand....
George played quite well when Johnson was hurt in 2000 but he's just a total headcase. A guy that talented playing QB should not be bouncing around the NFL like he did. No one could ever deal with the guy.

Re: Dan Snyder's worst free-agent signing

It has to be AA. He didn't even contribute anything on the field. At least the other guys made it on the field and did play and start. AA lost his job in training camp cause he sucked so bad. He was the highest paid punt protector inthe history of the NFL. lol.

Re: Dan Snyder's worst free-agent signing

Just the idea that Deion wore Burgundy and Gold still turns my stomach. George probably was the worst on the field move but I just can't stand Neon. Still can't even watch him on NFLN.

Re: Dan Snyder's worst free-agent signing

Adam Archuletta!

Dan Snyder gave him the largest contract in the history of the National Football League for a safety. Dan played hard ball with Ryan Clark and wouldn't sign him for 2 million and paid 10 million for Archuletta. Archuletta couldn't tackle or cover. Total waste.

I thought the arch deluxe started the first 6-8 games that season and was leading us in tackles (atleast through the first 6 games) before he was benched.

Didnt know he lost his starting job in training camp.

You're right. He didn't get benched until wk 9.
