Re: Redskins sign DE Stephen Bowen

This is a good signing. Given the choice between the young guy hitting his prime and the the big name approaching the downside and we chose the younger guy for a change yet they still get criticized. To many fans want "Snyderatto" type moves...they just want someone else making them for them. Maybe they still get Jenkins...maybe they don't...but I love that they are not just out there falling all over themselves to hand out blank checks to the big names.

Re: Redskins sign DE Stephen Bowen

Unless a lot of people are wrong about this guy, Bowen was on the radar screen for a few teams.

As for the money, hey ... our defense pretty much got chewed up last year. I'd say the D-line was as significant a need to address as any other. We've basically overhauled the front three in a matter of two days.

Funny. I can say the same about the guy in your avatar. A whole lotta money for being one of the worst rated at his position. Talk about me being a hater, how about we wait and see how this plays out before jumping the gun.

We added two younger, talented guys, which is never a bad thing, but Bowen and Cofield are far from sure things.
We have money to spend and are forced to spend. Cofield and Bowen are far, FAR better than who...Antonio Bryant, Jarvis Jenkins and Kemoeatu?

We're upgrading the defense nicely.

Re: Redskins sign DE Stephen Bowen

well, if dallas is mad about it, that's always a plus... maybe the bidding on c jenkins went too high, maybe our FO did their research and snagged a great talent...

i don't know, i've never heard of him and didn't see him, but the roids fans i've talked to liked him, so i'll have to sit and wait on this.

no way we sign 3 DEs though, looks like we've got a DE, a NT/DE and then a rotation to fill out the lineup.

we still need a couple OL bodies, and some reasonable LBs.

Still, i am a bit interested to know who our starters along the Dline will be. i know its possible bowen, j jenkins, and cofield could all rotate in at NT, these three are all better suited to play DE... as is carriker. the way i see it, we've got several good DEs but not a single true NT. if we can fill this hole while we groom Nield, our pass rush is going to be INSANE this year.

would be nice to get A. Franklin too instead of also adding C.Jenkins. Dline is a good place to tie up a lot of money and have depth to keep legs fresh

Bryant is a NT and Jarvis Jenkins could be a NT. I think we have a solid d-line, let's see if Bryant can continue to play NT the way he did at the end of the season and how much Neild can contribute. We are going to have a strong run defense, and if the d-line does enough to take care of blockers, Kerringan and Orakpo will wreck havoc in the pass rush.

You say that, but Bowen is YOUNG AND UNPROVEN. He has potential BUT I'd rather have a known commodity, than a guy w/ upside. Not saying he won't be a good player, but C. JENKINS IS A PROVEN 3-4 DE. Therefore he's more deserving of a payday than Bowen. IMO

Re: Redskins sign DE Stephen Bowen

I wasn't downing Bryant or our rookies, but we're adding some solid starters and using the guys we had for some great depth.

Fact is, our main downfall last season in Year #1 of the 3-4 was a shortage of actual 3-4 players.

That should not be an issue at all in 2011.

Yes -- definitely need to start looking at the LBs. I've got high hopes for Robert Henson though.

BTW, where the hell have you been, that guy?

Re: Redskins sign DE Stephen Bowen

I'm sure this thread will be revisited during the season if Bowen plays well. From everything I've heard about him, he's young, an up and comer, and honestly I'm starting to trust our FO more with the contracts they are giving out. So if they had to pay that much to snag him, it is what it is. I won't care what his numbers look like as long as he plays good.

I think Cofield is the known commodity and he's younger than Jenkins. I applaud the FO for not overspending on C. Jenkins if they are not getting him.

Re: Redskins sign DE Stephen Bowen

I think they'll bring in another body at NT, hard to see them entering the year with just Cofield, Bryant, and Neild there. But I think the DE depth chart is complete four deep with Bowen, Carriker, Holliday, and Jarvis Jenkins.

Re: Redskins sign DE Stephen Bowen

I just hope we have enough left to sign a quality offensive lineman.
