I had the exact same thought! The fact that we've traded w/them since Allen & Shanny arrived, makes that more of a possibility.

I watched the rams game & if Bradford could've had his wr's catch 3-4 of those drops they were right in it, final score was misleading. Their wr's at this point look like one of the worst corps in nfl, if not the worst.

Re: Trades of the Shanahan era

You gotta think that is a move the organization has considered, especially if us peons are pondering it.

Even a st. up trade Bailey for Portis was a steal for Denver IMO. Look who's still playing. Shanny knew the value of a shut-down CB (best in NFL at time) and how relatively easy the RB position is to fill. Gibbs was not yet up to speed in personnel at the time, but in his defense Portis at his best took on a lot & gave us some memories.

Re: Trades of the Shanahan era

I hope the McNabb trade is soon forgotten. We needed a short term fix while we figured out our QB problem. We as fans did something we rarely do, and thats stand by our coach and GM and sure enough they got us 12 picks this year and according to the article, some key contributers in this still developing system. On paper, McNabb had a chance to get us to the playoffs and his success in Philly fooled us. After his opening performance in Minny, its obvious he was simply a product of the system. I think as long as Snyder lays off, one or two more off seasons like we had this year will lead to us being major contenders in the league.

Gaffney has been a consistent contributor his entire career and has a history with Rex. Helu will be great. Kerrigan already is.
Kerrigan is "ALREADY GREAT"?? He played ONE game and is ALREADY GREAT.

I have seen few optimists as great as you in my life.


BTW, I like Kerrigan and think he may show - - one of these days - - that he is a really good NFL player. So, don't try to label me as some kind of hater here. It's just that no one deserves "GREAT" after one game. Is Cam Newton already GREAT? I don't think so...

As to Helu, you have him as GREAT and he has yet to do anything in a real NFL game.

Chris Horton is a great example. I thought we had a keeper after he picked 2 passes off Brees in the Saints game in 2008, and then he showed pretty much nothing in pretty much every game since. He was good for occasional special teams plays, but boy did he fade quickly.

Re: Trades of the Shanahan era

Maybe some of you knew this already, maybe some of you just didn't put it all together but someone on another message board posted this info which honestly shocked me cause I never thought about it. Maybe because just about every game of the Skins the announcers find a way to slip in the fact the Skins have had numorous HC's and QB's through the years and have not been to a championship game in so long due to it. But they never mention that there is another team out there with the same almost exact stats, numbers, or whatever. Take a look.....

Strange similarities between the Cowboys and Redskins.
The Cowboys are the NFL's most valuable franchise, according to Forbes' latest rankings. The Redskins are right behind at 2nd place.



The Cowboys have won only one playoff game over the past 14 seasons. The Redskins have won two playoff games in that same timeframe.



Neither team has advanced beyond the Divisional Playoffs since 1995.



The Cowboys have had five different head coaches since 1998. The Redskins have had six different head coaches in that same timeframe.



The Redskins have the NFL's 2nd-largest stadium by seating capacity. The Cowboys have the 3rd-largest.




The Cowboys and Redskins have two of the NFL's most despised and discussed/newsworthy owners, Jerry Jones and Dan Snyder.




The Cowboys have had 15 different quarterbacks start games for them since the 1997 season. The Redskins have also had 15 different quarterbacks starting games for them in that same timeframe as well.
Feel free to rub this info in the face of you favorite Dallas friend whenever possible. lol. Namely during Redksins vs. Dallas week.

I also hear that Fat AL is working out for .... lazy Boy ( Chairs ) . Maybe the ad will sound something like " When you are tired of rolling around on the ground like a beached whale " , try Lazy Boy for a relaxing evening at home

Actually, now after TWO games both Kerrigan and Cam Newton still look great. Time will tell.

Re: Trades of the Shanahan era

Kerrigan is making plays despite having a ****ton of information to digest and process. Imagine what he'll be like when it becomes second nature to him. I told ya'll, having TWO big name pass rushers in a 3-4 is actually not that common. At the very least, I saw Kerrigan as a #1b to the #1a(Rak)
