I can see this is going to be a running theme for awhile on here. Cheers!

From: Burgundy Blog

Thaddeus Gibson was an impressive pass-rushing outside linebacker at Ohio State, compared by some to fellow Buckeye Vernon Gholston (this was a compliment, at the time). He declared for the draft a year early, which many thought was premature, but the Steelers liked him enough to make him a fourth-round pick in 2010. In October, team injuries necessitated the promotion of a defensive end from the practice squad, so, being the “low man on the totem pole” in an exceedingly deep linebacking corps, Gibson was released.

Most Steelers bloggers believe Pittsburgh hoped to retain Gibson after he cleared waivers, but San Francisco scooped him up. He played sparingly for them as a rookie, then missed a practice earlier this week for unclear reasons and was cut for the second time in his career.

Yesterday the Redskins claimed him off waivers, which is interesting for several reasons:

He’s a very young 23 with a nice pedigree, only a year removed from being a well-regarded prospect at an impact position. He could definitely make a roster.

Outside linebacker isn’t an obvious need on this team. After Rak and Righteous, we have promising youth in Rob Jackson and Markus White, plus Teams maven and utility defender Lorenzo Alexander.

The Steelers wanted him back. They submitted a waiver claim as well, but we got him because we sucked last year while they went to the Super Bowl.

Granted, I don’t know the details of his dismissal from the 49ers. They could be incriminating. But ESPN’s NFC West blogger wrote this about him nine days ago, which sounds okay:

Linebacker Thaddeus Gibson repeatedly won battles during one-on-one pass-rush drills. He beat rookie Donovan Edwards twice in a row, then beat starting right tackle Anthony Davis to the inside.

At least until we find out why San Fran cut him, I really dig this move, even if more for principle than personnel.

First of all, Pittsburgh knows how to find outside linebackers outside the first round (see: Kevin Greene, Joey Porter, James Harrison, Lamarr Woodley). If they liked what they saw in Gibson enough to give him another shot, I’m totally fine with him getting a chance in Ashburn.

Secondly, and more importantly, this acquisition is yet another definitive example of Shanny’s borderline-obsessive pursuit of depth and competition at every position—even strong ones. He doesn’t guarantee starting jobs or first-team reps or roster spots to anyone at any time. He and Bruce are forever looking to upgrade the roster from top to bottom, which has already made us much better in practice and will eventually make us better on Sundays, especially in December. Moreover, they are exhaustive in exploring every mechanism available for growth and improvement, having now reshaped a young core with savvy moves via trade, free agency, the draft, and the waiver wire.

They are always watching, and they are never complacent.

Thaddeus Gibson might be a diamond in the rough, or he might be just plain rough. Either way, the start of his Redskins career should make Redskin Nation pleased.

Colin Cowherd is a dumbass -- lookup his comments on Sean Taylor's death for proof

Those PFT guys are really pompous. I follow the site because they do break news as fast or faster than anyone. But nearly every single post they write finishes up with some smart ass remark or jab at someone or some team. Agreed. They're a buncha sh*theads.

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

I've been saying this for a couple years now...but I had actually heard it differently. That they wanted a 5th and some marginal Doug Dutch type player. And we said no.

Never heard a 3rd...which I guess ended up being Kevin Barnes
