Re: Injuries will create a youth movement opportunity

I was just happy to see someone at the center position other than Rabach, he has been terririble for the last 3 years and it seemed the line got better in his absence.

To rebuild a team you need draft picks to draft talented young players unless you want them to fire everyone over a certain age for undrafted players.

Re: Injuries will create a youth movement opportunity

Shanahan turned over 1/3 of the roster in a year with limited free agents. You can't rebuild a team in one year. We're going to see more change next year.

Ultimately, high turnover is the reason we re-signed Rabach, but its still not a good reason. I mean, Montgomery was horrible last year (has been a lot better this year) and you can see the difference he made in pass protection in this game in the middle.

Blades and Riley aren't that much different in size than Rocky.
Rocky: 6-2 239
Blades: 5-10 242
Riley: 6-0 238

If anything, Alexander should be moved inside (6-1, 272) and Rocky outside. I don't know the nuances of the 3-4 like some do here, but wouldn't that be a closer role to how he was used in the 4-3 as the will LB while also putting a bigger body in the middle to take on guards?

Alexander is good in space and can help hold the edge

Re: Injuries will create a youth movement opportunity

Looks like James Davis will finally be added to the roster with Chad Simpson going on IR

Re: Injuries will create a youth movement opportunity

Yes, there will continue to be lots of change over the offseason. I actually miss CP being in there. He looked good and can block like no other. But, yes, hopefully we can see more of some young guys:

Banks
James Davis
Riley
Maybe Austin

Mike Shanahan is a smart guy though. If Austin was ready or deserved to be activated he would be. We're still 5-5 and right in the mix. MS wants to win games #1.

I think that the young guys might be inexperienced, but provide enthusiasm and energy. T Williams, Banks, K Williams, Torain, Gano have all produced in some way. I really want to see Davis and Austin on the roster, they could provide a nice spark during the tough stretch coming up.

Great point.
It amazes me how impatient the Redskins fans are. They loose sight that Shanahan and Allen inherited a 4-12 mess that we can call a team.
To be 5-5 at this point is an improvement, we have won more games than all of last year.
It's funny how in the past almost everyone gave Snyder shit for being impatient and not building a team the old fashion way. Now that we finally are building a team over time, some are saying it taking too long or we are not doing it fast enough. Redskins fans are never happy.

Re: Injuries will create a youth movement opportunity

Skins plan on adding a safety to the roster this week. Lendy Holmes I guess is the obvious choice, but I'm not sure it'll be him

I agree alot of fans are impatient. I think, though, that you are seeing a bit of the extreme fan in the blogging world though. It's not a full sample size of fans. Same thing on the radio, the fans you hear from are generally "extreme" fans. Not that those fans that aren't posting are not big time fans, they just aren't letting their opinions out.

It's going to take some time and i think most fans realize that. There are some idiots out there that just want to fire everyone after a loss too. It's going to take a long time to fix what Vinny did here.

I'm pissed that we gave up future wins for a temporary improvement in record. Treading water is not going to get us to a Super Bowl.
