Same thing with the receivers. At 5-11 Greg Jennings came in 2nd in TDs in the league with 12. Also at 5-11 theres Darelle Revis, need more be said about him. If skill/speed/hands are the same, height helps, but a shorter better guy is the better option no matter where you are.
I somewhat agree with you.... I mean look at D.Green, he was short, but he was smart enough to bat the ball or fight for it as the WR was coming down with the ball because of his hight. As long as he stayed close through out the route running he had a chance but your absolutely right it's all about seperation. Short guys would need to stay close in order to knock the ball away where as taller guys can afford to lose a step so long as they can out jump their opponant.

We aren't going to fix the whole team in one go.

Don't sign a washed up vet just to say you did, sign someone who will have a great impact down the road and wait until you can get a QB with good value and hopefully longevity. It's not like we would sign a vet QB to groom a young guy we already have for the future. I doubt anyone we have here will be a long term solution for our team at the QB position for years to come.
I'm just saying..he's got a chance if you get some guys around him.

I thought skinsfan69 was all about not signing any FAs at all and advocating a Suck for Luck campaign?

With the upcoming salary floor, I think we can sign some talent to benefit for the future while still somehow obtaining Luck. Signing free agents and being a bad team aren't mutally exclusive, especially when all teams are forced to pay a minimum amount, other teams competing for Luck will also be signing free agents.

No, they aren't mutually exclusive. We've been doing that for years.

Re: Free Agency/Franchise Tag thread 2011

It sounds like Posluszny might be open to a departure from Buffalo:
Bills' Posluzny interested in Giants - NFL - Yahoo! Sports

Notice in that story he talks about "several teams," not just the Giants.

Yeah that's great and all...... But it doesn't say he's interested in the redskins.

I mean his first preference is to return to Buffalo but he was asked about the Giants because of Fewell so what is he going to say really? I can't imagine any free agent saying flat out no to many teams, if any at all, when asked about a specific team.
