Re: Arizona RB Tim Hightower traded to Redskins.

According to 980:

Vonnie Holliday's agent has said he's NOT going to Arizona.



What's the deal with this?

Beanie Wells could not be trusted in the RZ...Hightower was. Hightower is also a great blocker and can pick up blitzes too. Good news for us!

Tim Hightower will get his share of touches for the Arizona Cardinals even with Beanie Wells as the main back - Fantasy Football - ESPN
Your quoted report does not say that he was better at the goal line. It said that his pass-catching skills were what probably made Wisenhunt decide on him over Wells at the goal line.

And his stats were inflated, because it was a concious decision by the staff to use him over Wells. Whether or not this was due to him he was better is irrelevant.

They also said that the NFL's Greg Aiello said that he has to or he'll be fine. Sounds like he's Zona's problem now.

Re: Arizona RB Tim Hightower traded to Redskins.

Looks like Vonnie Holiday is going to AZ after all:

"Rich Campbell
I just received a text message from Vonnie Holliday: "I am headed to AZ." #Redskins #Cardinals"

That is one of the more nonsensical things I've read on this board in a while. His stats are inflated because the coaches use him more? Yeah, you tend to have better stats than the next guy if you play more. Also, wouldn't the coaches use the better player more often? Not really irrelevant.

Look at his stats (that I posted above). His TDs were all RUNS, zero receiving TDs.


Also, if you've even watched a game with him in it, you would see he's an explosive back. I've been watching him for a few years (and owning him in fantasy leagues).

I don't know why you and other members work so hard to talk down EVERY acquisition this team makes.

Skins sign any one, the knee-jerk reaction is "oh, bad deal, he's a bad player, the team is making bad decisions again!"

Sure...cut Hightower and give Betts a call. Might as well bring Randel El back too...goodbye Gaffney.

It really is!

Reminds me of the famous Madden quote - ""Usually the team with the most points wins the game!"

Your quoted report does not say that he was better at the goal line. It said that his pass-throwing skills were what probably made Caldwell decide on him over Painter at the goal line.

And his stats were inflated, because it was a concious decision by the staff to use him over Painter. Whether or not this was due to him he was better is irrelevant.

John Madden Wisdom for Mike Shanahan
The fewer rules a coach has, the fewer rules there are for players to break.


For Bruce Allen
Don't worry about the horse being blind, just load the wagon.


For John Beck
When your arm gets hit, the ball is not going to go where you want it to.

Re: Arizona RB Tim Hightower traded to Redskins.

Quick hits: Redskins sign placekicker Shayne Graham - The Insider - The Washington Post

-- Hightower is expected to arrive some time Monday afternoon. Shanahan described the fourth-year pro as a back who “can do everything: run, catch, pass protect.” Hightower is expected to challenge Ryan Torain for the starting job.

You can't win on this board sometimes. If it's a highly sought after FA we acquire, then we whine and complain that we overpaid for that player. If we go out and get a proven, solid talent like Tim Hightower. It's oh, he's no Adrian Peterson. This move doesn't make sense.

I like this part of the season where we all get to play armchair GM, compare stats, and talk a little trash. It's part of the deal. But come September we'll know who's the real deal and who deserves to be a Redskin. Right now I'm just enjoying the ride. God knows politics is crazy right now, so this a much needed distraction.

And people will still be clamoring for Marcus Mason and Chase Daniel.
