Re: Arizona RB Tim Hightower traded to Redskins.

So this is the veteran RB they've been talking about adding it seems. I heard trade in the works with Arizona this morning and I actually thought it was for Max Hall

I'm not sure either makes it. Gun to my head right now, I think:

RB + FB

Hightower
Helu
Keiland
Darrel Young

Royster passes through waivers to the PS.

Even so, I would bet the over on 15 carries for Royster this season.

I can't imagine that Hightower's impact on the offense will be greater than Vonnie's impact on the defense would have been. But this team isn't going anywhere, and this move knocks the average age of our team down a notch (my favorite meaningless stat!)

Nice knowing you, Ryan Torain.
Wait, you're comparing Hightower'is impact/production to Vonnie's? I don't know about that one, bruh. This guy ain't Adrian Peterson, but he should step right in and play a very significant role and pick up where Clinton Portis did in pass pro.

Gonna have to disagree with you on that one. But we'll see when he hits the field.

So at the end of the day you feel Keiland Williams at this point essentially beats him out?

Re: Arizona RB Tim Hightower traded to Redskins.

I'm fine with the pickup. Let's get this thing together for the long haul. Some of these guys won't be here when Shanny is holding up the Lombardi but I'm gonna enjoy the ride!

So in saying that, you bring down when i like the signing but in return you get me excited about the signing when i dont like it!
I think your observation is spot on. I'm in the business of being right, not parroting the masses.

Special teams play matters. It's why the Sellers at TE experiment will be given a chance to work. Then another chance. Then another chance.

Uh, okay, sure!

I think you can list the additions we've made this offseason who will still be Redskins in 2014 on one hand, but great!
