Or maybe while he thinks we can get by with what we have at WR, V.Jax. represents a clear upgrade at the position that he wouldn't mind.

I don't necessarily agree with that but everyone's entitled to their own opinion. If we traded Haynesworth to the Titans, who traded some picks to San Diego, who traded V.Jax. to us, I would be very happy. Because you know if we get rid of Haynesworth on his own, we aren't going to get shit for him. Nobody trades good draft picks for malcontent players that think too highly of themselves.

It won't be long now before we begin to find out just what we're going to have at the w/r position. Various arguments have been made as to their abilities [or lack thereof] have fun with the knowledge that any concerns we have will answer themselves very shortly.

Galloway has had 20 receptions for 200 yards and 0 tds in his last 2 seasons combined. And he is not exactly going to get better with age at 38. He is not someone we want on our team much less someone who is going to start.
Our TEs are good but (like Ive said before) two TEs cannot both shine in one offense. It has never been done before, so I do not see why it will happen now. Don't get me wrong, they both can be reasonably productive, but to expect them both to put up big numbers in the same game is a little far fetched.
Moss is OK, but not someone who demands a double team. He might get it, but he doesn't need it. He is not someone that can make up for the lack of talent of our other receivers. Also, for a small speedy guy like him, being 32 this year does not inspire confidence that he will be any better (especially now that he can't take steroids anymore...jk but not really).

Re: (Vent thread) I'm sorry,but the notion,that the Redskins have "no" receivers is just stupid!

On the Cowboys board I look at, there is a thread about ranking WR corps, oddly there is not one about ranking OL. I think it's clear that our WR's are not the tops, but I think they will make it through the season, if we are unable to bring someone in. But, lets not forget where our priority HAD to be this offseason. Everyone living knew we had to upgrade our OL, and we did, to the point where it is most likely a strength and one of the better ones in the division. Let's see if we can have that same EFFECTIVE focus over the next year on WR's.

Thank you and nicely put Mooby!

And MRedskins...I'm certainly a newb here,but I'm no newb when it comes to Redskins historically or football related issues.

You have any questions,don't be afraid to ask?

Depth on the OL is still cause for concern in the event we suffer an injury or two. That's a problem many teams experience, mainly because of the scarcity of players deemed to be good depth players. If a player is good enought to step right in if an injury occurs and the line dosen't miss a beat in execution, then usually that kind of player generally feels he's good enough to start for some team in the league and will in most cases find a location where he can be a starter.

It can be argued that the WR's we have can be productive providing no one of them in particular be counted on to carry the maximum load. Couple the WR's with the TE's and spread the wealth equally among the lot, this could ultimately prove to be a formidable group. To expect any one of the group to catch 90-100 balls would be an unrealistic expectation.

Usually when someone takes the effort to make a thread about topic especially a thread that starts with VENT, they usually stick to their guns throughout the board.

You say no worries about the receiving corp here then go start another thread about trading AH for a WR.

Overall I am just saying put some more thought in before making another thread. No one likes to have a billion useless threads going on at once.

The "vent" thread was the fact that there is a theme that the redskins have no chance of having an affective passing attack and that we have no receivers what-so-ever? Would you say this is true on the overall speculation as a whole? I would considering it's thick in the Redskins land as well.

The "vent" thread was to show,that although we are not stacked at WR,that's it being portrayed worse,than it really is.

The fact that I would want to add a good WR to our WR core,is to upgrade and already what I think...."decent" wr core. Not great...but decent.

There's nothing bi-polar or talking out of both sides of my mouth about that mredskins...it's very simple,basic and IMO..
True...

I always believe you can be better at a certain position and add depth...

The fact that not only opposing fans and even Redskins fans assuming our WR core sucks without knowing for sure what will happen with a X6 pro bowl QB is all...Speculation.

I have believed and always believed and maintained to believe...that Jason Campbell,made the WR's look worse...than they really were.

I told many people.....over and over and over and over and over again....that if all the redskins did was change QB's or improve at th QB position...Our wr's would look much better.

Even with jim zorn (as bad as he was)...if we had done NOTHING else..on defense..on offense,coaching management or whatever...

If all we ever did thids offseason was go from campbell to mcnabb

This team could throw the ball.
Yes,I believe JC really sucks!
(which is why I laugh at the "raiders are going to be good" sentiments..lol)

And I have my evidence of my evaluation from this...

As soon as Collins comes in,during the 07 season when we were 5-7

we miraculously won 4 games in a row behind the great todd collins...and made the playoffs...

Is this proof collins was good? lol no way

It was proof to me that JC was absolutely...terrible

The fact that he never got any better,made being a Redskins fan hard for the next 2 seasons later..

At what we have done.....PLUS the new coaches and management...

And people actually are suprised I have us going 14-2?

If this team can win 4 games in row with Todd Collins...what can McNabb do?

The point of all this wild stuff I got here is simple.....

I don't think critics and even Redskins fans realize...just how bad jason campell really is/was!

We'll probably look like the 91 skins compared to what we've seen...lol
It's that much of an improvement...

At least...that's my theory anyways...

A discussion is the very least we can do for one that's been a fan since was 4 yrs old. Not another AH thread please!!

Re: (Vent thread) I'm sorry,but the notion,that the Redskins have "no" receivers is just stupid!

This thread is ridiculous. Let the team take the field and play an actual game. Predicting these kinds of things is as pointless as guessing lottery numbers. You just don't know until there are actual results. Obviously being confident is one thing and as a Redskins fan I do it yearly. Who doesn't love the optimistic feeling going into a season when the team is still 0-0. Until we see them win or lose the inclination is to think big.

And I don't get the "I have been a Redskins fan since I was 4 years old" Does that make you better than everyone else? I believe the people who tag numbers to things like that are just tooting their own horn.

I know a good Redskins team who I see one too..Put the team on the field..Win games and Bam, there you have it.

Santana Moss is no prize WR...JC had him on so many plays last year that resulted in Moss just dropping the ball or not giving 100% effort even if the ball was off a tad bit. We have decent receivers, nothing more or special...certainly no goto receiver. I hope McNabb and the coaches can get more out of this bunch.
