Still, there are always different ways to run a scheme depending on who's running it. I always say that some of the smallest details make the biggest difference. And I would think at this level, depending on how big their concern with the redskins line, the more they would want to get a competitive advantage. My assumption is that they are already worried.

Re: Final Cuts From Around the NFL

Dockery at this point is a better fit for what Dallas runs vs what we do. Maybe he has some inside info to offer, but I think it's pretty minimal. I think more than anything they signed him for his ability more than his knowledge.

I don't think they were that high on his ability considering he's been available since march.

All I'm saying is I doubt the Cowboys brought in Derrick Dockery to somehow get a leg up on the Redskins scheme. And if they did, so effin what. Why not bring in Stephon Heyer or Casey Rabach or Artis Hicks? Why Dockery who wasn't even that good at zone blocking to begin with and lost his starting job?

Because they get the best out of this situation. A combination of the best player for their scheme and also someone with the redskins scheme knowledge.

Hey man, I'm not going to fight you over Derrick ****ing Dockery....I mean this is Derrick Dockery we're talking about here. Derrick ****ing Dockery? It's just Derrick Dockery! I could see if we talkin' bout Russ Grimm, but Derrick Dockery? It's just Derrick Dockery! (Allen Iverson voice)

I think they've learned that some young players did not step up as they had hoped. They couldn't know this in March but they can try to fix the problem now.

I'm just kidding man. Had a few drinks. I hope DDocks blows it up in Dallas.

Re: Final Cuts From Around the NFL

Mike Shanahan's scheme has been common knowledge for at least a decade and emulated across the league. A newb to that system like Dock isn't going to help much. Dallas cut Montrae Holland and chose Dockery instead. All signs point to trouble at the LG position for them.

Re: Final Cuts From Around the NFL

Any news on new PS signings? Last I heard we still have four slots open.

Looks like we have at least one more slot filled. Looks like the 3rd QB is Jonathan Crompton, formerly of the Chargers.

Personally I would have tried hard to land Adam Weber but if the Shannys feel good about Crompton, cool. Any attempt to add talent to and get younger at the QB position is potentially a good move.

Re: Final Cuts From Around the NFL

FWIW, Rotoworld is listing Eric Olsen as a center for the Washington Redskins.

As far as his ability is concerned, he doesn't need to be a world beater; he just needs to better fill a team need than someone else who was on our roster.

Re: Final Cuts From Around the NFL

Dolphins cut AJ Edds

I am a homer here for this former Hawkeye, but I know a few Dolphin fans that say he had a great preseason and they are pretty ticked off he was cut. I would like to see the Skins go get him as he is good in coverage and a complete backer.
