Agreed. I think the O-line and the defense overall will be improved quite a bit. Our success won't hinge as much on QB play as last year. But I'm still not sold even one little bit on any QB on our roster.

I'd still like to bring Dennis Dixon into the fold. I don't think he's a franchise QB or anything, but it sure would make things that much more interesting this year.

One wonders how exactly any of the moves we've made signify that we want to win now in anyway. If anything, the moves we've made prove that we are NOT in win now mode, and are far from trying to win now.

What?

We've been stocking up on young depth players and filling holes...not making flashy "win now" signings like the Eagles.

Are we watching the same Redskins team?

Every little move he makes is going to be highly scrutinized....good or bad.

Did Fred Davis oversleep again?

It's happened before where Qb's come out of nowhere how bout romo? he was a 3rd stringer, trent green, kurt warner, and on and on. Rex knows the offense and put up decent numbers in his 3 games, but he's still Rex. If Beck is as accurate as they say he will be just fine.

Oh I missed that. Oh well. My Dennis Dixon/John Kuhn dreams have been dashed.

It's a win now approach, or try and win just enough to keep our jobs approach. Not saying it's awful but IMO we really shouldn't sign this many free agents cause it really never works.

How would you suggest they get to a 90 man training camp roster?

You're thinking of the Eagles. MS had a win now approach last year when he wasted picks on McNabb. If he had the same mentality this year, we would be throwing picks at the Bengals for Palmer.
