It was Stan Hixon for the longest time. Now it's Keenan McCardell.

$10 says another team picks him up and he goes ape shit the rest of the year. Always seems to work that way for the Skins. Redskins' garbage is another team's gem.

More professional, huh? Smells like a my-way-or-the-highway move by Shanny I guess.

By the way that paragraph was from ESPN's Matt Mosley.

Re: Redskins release Devin Thomas

This was a rumor I'd been hearing for a couple of weeks that I thought couldn't possibly be true. They kept saying he'll be cut if he's not traded and I thought "no way" guess Shanallen don't play that. DT also probably didn't help himself going around this week implying the reason he want playing was personal. Oh well, Tripps happy

You are right that needs to be looked at but he has only been here for a short time!

and history tells us that he does catch on with some other team and He will be a average player. He will torches us in a future match-up making us regret the move...

I have seen this one before!!!

I'm just thinking back to the offseason when people were talking about how malcolm kelly and devin thomas were going to go off this year.

Not sure this has anything to do with Keenan McCardell. The guy has been our receivers coach for all of four games. Plus look at how little he has to work with. Can't expect him to turn coal into diamonds in a month.

Re: Redskins release Devin Thomas

DT made his own bed. Let's not forget how he couldn't pass the conditioning test his rookie year, was always inconsistent in his route running, has iffy hands, and despite having a golden opportunity this year with a relatively thin WR corps, couldn't rise above the likes of Galloway, Armstrong, etc.

Why is it that he is given coal to work with...It is more like turd! I think it is even higher than him. We just don't do well in getting the most of players or developing them...if they are not world beaters than they are out in Washington! Getting world beaters cost $$$$ and drafting them is tricky!

We need to fix that. Is it Talent evaluators, scouts or will new GM be more in the right direction? We are looking for the wrong things!

Re: Redskins release Devin Thomas

I guess running precise routes matters to Shanny...

Whatever. I'll trust the new regime on this one. God knows the old regime responsible for bringing DT here doesn't have any credibility. What's more likely: Shanny and Allen have no idea what they're doing or Vinny and co. made a bad pick? You decide.

Re: Redskins release Devin Thomas

Unreal. I just recently heard all the trade rumors surrounding Thomas, so you mean to tell me we couldn't even get a 7th rounder for him???? Seriously Allen?

Re: Redskins release Devin Thomas

What has he done to justify any sort of pick in return? I knew trying to trade him was going to be a real stretch.

When you put it that way then maybe my theory ends here and will get better here on out!!! Because Vinny and Co. didn't know S**T!
