Someone will take him. We won't get a high pick but we'll clear enough cap room to sign another big name receiver.

1. The way our O-line has played this year, Joe has to put in the "BIG" package to have half a chance of moving the ball inside the 10. No big secret there. It's also statistically proven that the passing game becomes more difficult inside the 20 because there is less space to operate, so Joe is going to go with what has the best chance of success. It seems so many people love to bash Gibbs play calling whether we abandon the running game or rely on it too heavily. I wish we'd make up our minds!

2. It's no big secret that Gardner has been one of our most inconsistent receivers the whole year and Coles has been hampered since his injury. Cooley probably is our best pair of hands on the offense so why not throw it to him?

3. Failing to mention here that options or not Brunell didn't have the combination of arm strength and accuracy to complete a pass period. We could have run a Spurrier style offense with a half dozen passing options and he still couldn't have completed more than half his attempts.

A true Redskin will decide to have surgery that may make him a good player again or possibly end his career entirely because it will be better for the team?

Tell that to the players who get cut or released by the Redskins and who are out of jobs like Trotter or Armstead. Tell that to Mark Brunell when you don't honor the 3rd 4th and 5th years of the contract you signed with him.

The NFL is a business. Coles has a contract with the Redskins. They can pay him or they can cut him. They really don't have a lot of other choices because he's not going to bring much in a trade if the reason you are trading him is that he needs surgery that he may or nay not elect to undergo. He - and no one else - is going to decide on whether or not he has surgery.

And if you met him in a bar some night and gave him that "true Redskin line", my guess is that he'd laugh a long time.

SC, I wasn't aware that the surgery could be career ending. I thought he was just being stubborn and didn't want to end this season early. Sorry, I misunderstood. But if you ask me players these days care less about playing for a team and more about playing for a fat paycheck. I wouldn't mind seeing players care more about the "team" for once. What ever happened to loyalty?

I agree with that NY! Today, players have the "me" attitude or in better terms, the "pay me" attitude! I honestly believe that the younger fans of football today have been cheated! Don't get me wrong, football is exciting to watch and there are players that play because they want to win a championship, but to me, it just seems as if players back in the day played with more loyality for a team regardless of what team it was. I know free agency and the salary cap has alot to do with that, but I enjoyed the time knowning that when a player played for the Redskins, he WAS a Redskin, he wasn't just a player in the NFL who happens to play for our team.
