Glad we can soon start spending. Really hoping Santonio isn't our main objective, especially since we could've had him for a fifth rounder last year and maybe we wouldn't have stunk so bad.

Just like the best thing that ever happened to the colts was when they had they took Manning, just like when the best thing that ever happened to the cowboys was when they took Aikman, just like the best thing that ever happened to the broncos was when they got Elway.

I know I also believe that no coach will lose on purpose, and no players will ever lose on purpose. I recognize that the organization will never tank for luck. But saying that, I also see how the best thing that happened for the franchises above was getting their guy, and the best thing that can happen to us is to get ours. Long term as an organization, it is in the best interest of the franchise.

Everyone will kill me for saying this, but I've had a slight change of heart of my previous statements written on this site. It just occurred within the last 10 mins upon learning the new free agency rules where dead cap money doesn't count. I think that these new rules make it more realistic to possibly build a superteam, and gives other realistic options besides just having that one stud qb to winning a superbowl (though the stud qb is still the best strategy IMO, I think that it is not the only option, and I believe there will be easier ways of attaining that stud qb than just having a high draft pick).

That last paragraph I'll take back if I find out any more info about dead cap regulations, but from my understanding now there are no limitations to dead cap, there isn't a limit to bonus money that can be dealt out, and contracts are still able to be restructured
Took less than a minute to find

B) Wrong. Let me rephrase. Significantly our best bet. There are always options to get a franchise qb. You can hope that there will be another option that even has possibility of panning out, you can hope that next option will be available when we pick, you can hope that that the other option we draft pans out. That's just too much hope and luck (once again no pun intended) for me to be comfortable with. I like to go with what we know is tangible.

Also please stop using the word logic. Its really not even deniable that what I'm saying is true, that the higher the picks we have the better odds we have of getting what we need to become contenders. You really can't deny that the higher draft picks you have one year, the better odds you have at winning in the future.
And to clarify (because according to you, logic predicts this statement to be ripped apart), I'm not saying that fans should undoubtedly support this sentiment. I realize that most fans want to win in the here and now and root for a victory every game no matter what. They are completely entitled to feel that way, but I am not talking about supporting the sentiment that has been labeled "suck for luck." I'm simply stating the truth that higher draft picks yield higher odds of succeeding in the future. I'm going to add on that it is the undeniable truth that a franchise qb significantly improves your team (I'd say it is necessary to win a superbowl, but that is not undeniable truth). I'm also going to add that it is the undeniable truth that the higher you pick, the SIGNIFICANTLY better odds you have at landing a franchise qb.
Honestly if you deny any of those undeniable truths, you lose all credibility of football knowledge with me (unless you have hard statistics to back your claims up...I know I have many to back mine up, but if I'm overlooking something, be my guest to show me wrong).
One might think it were easier to predict feedback on an opinion than franchise QBs

tell me why the worst teams always have high picks and the winning teams don't...

cuz of ONE magical pick that made the rest of the years' picks null/void?

Everywhere I've heard says we have 26 million to spend. That's not including figuring out what to do with McNabb/Haynesworth

If we cut/trade McNabb and Haynesworth, how much would we have?

My thoughts exactly. He made way to many big plays for them last season.

Who needs Andrew Luck?

This is the dawning of the John Beck Era in the NFL.

45 million SOUNDS like a lot of money to have to spend, but let me put it this way:

Lets say the Redskins sign Nnamdi Asomugha on July 27 to a 6 year, 92 million dollar contract with $40 million guaranteed.

That signing bonus is amortized over the life of the contract, so 40/6 = 6.67/year. But the year one salary is probably going to be 3 mil or less, with a large option bonus somewhere around year four of the contract. So Nnamdi's cap number in 2011, lets put it at $9 million. That's about 1/3 of our available cap space, and still plenty left to do whatever we want, outside of giving out a similar type contract to a different player.

But the Redskins just wrote a check for $40 million to Nnamdi, plus another $2 million in salary due in week one. So while $45 million is a lot to spend, the Redskins just spent to the NFLPA minimum on just one player. And still have $18 million of cap flexibility, even after signing rookies.

So yeah, one elite free agent pretty much gets the Redskins 60% (or more) of the way to the spending limit, and from that point on, it's pretty much just a normal offseason.
