Would've liked to see him here. Would've finally liked a tall young target. Ah well.

Wish him the best of luck. Hope this decision doesn't come back to bite us at some point.

GTripp nightmare scenario: Jimmy Clausen and DT become a Manning/Harrison combination and dominate for 10 years.

Re: DT now a Panther

Didn't take him long to find a job, the question now is, will he be willing to go to work.

Re: DT now a Panther

Is it some kind of...well kept secret how much we need a legit #1 reciever? Anybody think the Shanahan's, the other 48 coaches, scouts and front office people are unaware of this?
If DT had shown any sense over the last 3 years of being a reliable, hard working, producing starter, anybody really think he would not be starting....now?

Exactly. I am all for clearing out anyone they don't see fitting in to their scheme. At least those who stay will be onboard, and we will have honest evaluations going forward.

Re: DT now a Panther

YOU are correct CRR. This team has wasted way to much money and time on guys that should not have been aquired....AND then waiting forever for the "never to come" pay off. It is SERIOUSLY refreshing that the new regime can cut ties, walk away with the "come bust your ass and maybe you can be a proud Redskin" philosphy for he next candidate..........
Shanny talks continuosly of "building something here" type jargon...Love it!

Re: DT now a Panther

Well I guess we all will get to see if we were right or wrong pretty soon.

He starts and shines= we screwed up.
He starts and doesn't see the ball thrown his way= SSDD.

Good luck with that Panthers.

I wonder the same thing, but with DT...how many years does he get? I mean we have done this and done this with players with HUGE deals that never come to fruition. I REALLY liked DT and was excited when they drafted him. Damn disappointed he didn't work out.
That is why a guy like Shanny is SO damn valuable. I would keep the bastard forever hoping he would get it. I don't think emotion is part of the equation for MS. AND it should not be or?????? YOU have the Redskins roster problems.
AND finally it is....ridiculous that I as a fan, (even if I was an exceptionally astute fan) am qualified in ANY way to make those decisions.

I just don't understand them keeping Williams or Galloway over DT. But I guess the coaches have their reasons.

Kinda confused? McNabb is producing. McNabb showed up to OTA's. McNabb practiced all preseason. At the end of the day McNabb busts his butt and gets the job done. I guess your refering to the same thing could be said about Thomas also?

Re: DT now a Panther

I am with you Skins, but the vets paid their dues and obviously showed up to practice and worked hard. Shanny is going to build something, the thing is he didn't have a solid foundation to begin with, and it will take time. He acquired Donovan, but before that, all he had was Cooley, Portis, and Moss on offense, with a crappy line, and no complimentary Wrs to help Moss out. Armstrong is a start, but we need two more Wrs,(at least one more), a couple guards, and a tackle. The D we need linemen and a few DBs.
