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.

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!"
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.

3 of them will make the team too.

Hank, Gaff and either Kelly or Paul, depending on Kelly's health.

Maybe we need to get a 7-footer at wideout for people to be happy. LOL.

We still have a long way to go if we want to beat the Raiders in the summer hoops league. Gaither, Veldheer, maybe some Heyward-Bey at Point Guard.

Is the last sentence the words of Shanahan or those of the writer?
