Nnamdi was necessary b/c Asante is not strong in the def. their going to be playing (In the new defense he will only be as good as Rogers was for us ). They are a small, quick team that can put up points in a hurry. Last year they needed to b/c their defense allowed 24 or more points in 11 games.

While I think chemistry only matters when its very bad or very good, there are a lot of parts that need to come together for Philly to win it all. Particularly on D.

To literary meet that expectation with the skill-level of Lebron and Wade, 9 (two-fifths of the Heat starters) defensive/offensive starters need to be All-Pro at their positions. And considering Bosh, 4 (one-fifth of the Heat starters) other defensive/offensive starters need to be at the Pro-Bowl level.

If you're keeping count that's 9 All-Pro starters and 4 Pro-Bowlers. If the Eagles have an equivalent of that right now, then I guess for the other 31 NFL teams, it might be better off that the lockout is reinstated.
Nahhh, Reggie Bush took his talents to South Beach.

Re: 2011 Redskins Free Agents Rumors and Reports-Part 3

On top of that, Philly's new DC was their long time (1998 - 2010) offensive line coach and has not coached defense since being a High School Defensive Coordinator in 1986-1989. Not saying he can't do the job (apparently he is a voracious film guy), just saying that is one more piece of the puzzle (and a big one) that seems to be being overlooked as the defensive dream team is being annoitted.

Re: 2011 Redskins Free Agents Rumors and Reports-Part 3

SmootSmack, any idea why we didn't sign Justin Blalock? In my dream we would have signed him or Yanda. I know Yanda really wanted to stay at home, so it is hard to feel that we failed in that chase. Is the same true for Blalock?

He got paid well and gets to stay with a contender

Blalock reminds me way to much of Dockery. Even though the Falcons play a Zone scheme. Also part of it might be that the Shanahan's are looking for continuity on the O-Line. Thats why the only new starter will be Chester. Usually the more time an O-Line gets to together the better they play. Guys learn when to come off combo blocks, who to pick up in pass protection, and many other nuances.

Remember the O-Line played much better near the end of last year, I'm pretty sure the Front Office wasn't exactly eager to blow it up so they could go through the same growing pains.

Still go back and watch the videos I posted of Torain and Williams. Kory L actually had a bit of a mean streak at LG. At this point my only concern up front is Monty and even then I feel good about his prospects. I know Shanny likes finese agile guys, but the guys up front for the Redskins all seem to have a bit of a mean streak.

Plus the cost of living as well as the weather is much nicer in Atlanta then DC. Not to mention Tryfuhls point of playing for a contender. Only thing DC has on Atlanta right now is nicer districts like Alexandria where the streets look like they're paved with Gold. Oh and FedEx field is much nicer (at least inside) then the Georgia Dome.

Re: 2011 Redskins Free Agents Rumors and Reports-Part 3

I don't even know how serious the interest was in him. Some have said the Skins really wanted Yanda. But the guys I'd heard since last fall they really wanted was Davin Joseph.

I'm not really sure there was ever a true plan B.

I don't really know when Chester fell into the equation. First I heard about the interest in him was a two or three days before we signed him.

Not to mention that ine zone blocking, for both the running game and passing game, requires a sense of awareness of what the OL around them are going to do.

I'm sure that the ideal for Shanny would be the Cladys and T. Williams of the world. Agile yet also big and strong. But if he can't have it all, then he prefers athleticism to size and strength.

Well as Chester has shown me, you can be fast, agile, and nasty without being particularly strong. My guess is Schlerth was kind of the same way. He could move and understand angles and while not being Leonard Davis strong he would still use any opportunity he could to get a guy on the ground and finish blocks.

"Nastiness" is a mental thing. A strong body is a...body thing that might not be used to its full potential without the proper attitude, with nastiness being one of them. I'm sure every coach wants guys who don't play like pansies, regardless of their physical gifts (or lack thereof).
