Sure, but last year he was more of a game manager and I'm not saying that as a bad thing. I thought the Rams handled him very well.

He had some chances to make big time plays but you have to remember how horrible his receiving corps was/is. NTM their OLine isn't anything special either, I do agree with your post though.

I think Bradford deserves a wait-and-see. The Rams WR crop was basically all Amendola once Clayton went down. Opposing defenders could "cheat" because they had absolutely no deep threat.
Analysis using datasets (aka stats) is an attempt at reverse-engineering a player's "goodness".

Virtuosity remembered, douchebaggery forgotten.

The ideal character profile shoved down modern Western men and women's throats is Don Juan.

If given two scenarios:
Scenario A. 2011: 9-7 2012: 9-7
Scenario B. 2011: 5-11 2012: 13-3

Same number of games won over a two year period, but one looks significantly better than the other. Do what we need to do now to get a young base, then grow from there. We've tried this semi-rebuilding bullshit before and it has us where we are now. Lets bust it down, get rid of the mentality around Redskins park and start fresh.
Good post. I think the majority of fans will be patient w/ this FO and Shanahan. There will be those fans who will go on the radio and/blogs and blast us if we lose 10 games this year, but they are the minority. The Skins should get younger and should try to build this thing right. Most fans will realize that it isn't done overnight, it's going to take a few years.

Re: rebuilding or FA frenzy?

Can we get a better fullback?
