Dan Snyder's worst free-agent signing

Dan Snyder's worst free-agent signing - NFC East Blog - ESPN

Let's try our own poll. Personally I went with George. At the time the move was completely unnecessary. Brad Johnson was coming off a great season and should have been our QB for the long term. George's signing rocked the boat and a year later BJ was gone, only to go on to win a SB with the Bucs.

Fat Al was 2nd for me. As Mosley points out AH was bitching about the scheme last year and didn't even give the new one a chance, so it seems that he's just a malcontent no matter what.

Re: Dan Snyder's worst free-agent signing

QB has by far the greatest impact on your team of any position. To have one who had just gone to the pro bowl, and bring in another guy who had no leadership skills? Makes no sense.

Johnson could have been a very good Redskins QB for several years after that.

George.

Agree completely, this is exactly what I was going to say.

Re: Dan Snyder's worst free-agent signing

Can we add Brandon Llyod to the list?

Re: Dan Snyder's worst free-agent signing

Jeff George played good for us that year he was a backup. I to this year don't know if he was the sole problem. The skins have been bad for a long time. George played great in Oakland and Minnesota afterwards. I think by the time he got his attitude problems fixed, teams didn't want to give him a chance anymore.

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....

Re: Dan Snyder's worst free-agent signing

I'll go w/George too, mainly because that screwed up a team w/super bowl potential. The 2000 skins had it all except for chemistry.

B. Loyd was a trade, but he's right up there as a totally head scratching move. Similar to the George signing, Loyd came into a team that felt it could take the next step to the super bowl after winning a playoff game the year before. That team had the whole Arch & safety issue that year, but Loyd certainly didn't help the chemistry.

First of all, George was in OAK and MIN before coming here and he played pretty well at Minnesota before we signed him, however, he never played particularly well for the Redskins. In Oakland he had one very good year, but then I'm guessing he was benched the next season after 8 games because his numbers looked horrible, then he became the starter in MIN, played well and parlayed that into a contract with the Skins.

In his first season he played in 6 games, started 5, went 1-4 and threw 7 TDs to 6 INTs. Those are Patrick Ramsey numbers from a 33 year old, why this team (Dan Snyder) thought he was a better QB than Brad Johnson, I'll never know.

I can't even explain how happy I was when Marty released him, that guy was not good enough to have the attitude he did.

Re: Dan Snyder's worst free-agent signing

I read my post now and saw where i messed up. It meant to say that year he was a backup. I'm referring to when he went 8-2 as a starter...But still it's hard to say why he played so bad here....

I couldn't stand George. The way I feel about AH now reminds me of how I felt with George. I just wanted the guy off the team and when Marty cut him loose it was a huge relief.

Re: Dan Snyder's worst free-agent signing

Did we even have a choice with Brad Johnson. I thought we lost him while the team was in limbo with ownership?

That was Trent Green.

We had the chance to lock up BJ long term, but instead brought in George.

He was ok under Norv but a horrible fit under Marty's system. He clashed with Marty on a variety of levels as well.

I totally agree, JG is by far the worst most unnecessary move DS ever made.

Re: Dan Snyder's worst free-agent signing

Here's one...
NEON DEON.
I HATED this guy...was he decent, yes...but he was an ARROGANT COWBOY....what the HELL are you thinking?

And then to bench the most beloved Redskin of all time for this arrogant jerk?
Are you kidding me?

This was not about talent...this move was about marketing....STUPID...I hated it....it also let to the departure of Champ Bailey...which was stupid..
Am I arguing Portis/Bailey trade?...no....but we could have gotten Portis another way and kept Bailey

Redskins rule #1 should be:
NEVER hire a COWBOY!!
