In other words the hole is already there. This team needs to draft a FS cause Atogwe is not any better. Now if the coaching staff feels Atogwe will work out but needs more time to digest the scheme as all the other players did in their first year then I'll be ok with them keeping him, but for me not only does he seem lost in this scheme but he does not hit very hard. We need a big FS hitter, one that can run sideline to sideline breaking up passes and helping out the CB.
I agree. Considering the fact that LL #30 hasn't played much at all in the past two seasons, the hole is already been there. I would rather have someone who is at least consistent and not injury prone, rather than someone who only plays for a few games out of the season. Hate to say it, but I'm starting to feel the same way about Chris Cooley as well.

Doughty is as good as LL?

That's laughable.

For real. Doughty is a career backup.

Re: Laron Landry - Redskin for life?

If this franchise pays LL $7 million to keep him another year I'll have suspend my fanhood until the Snyder era ends. He's worth league minimum at this point and nothing more. He's a dumb player, I mean literally dumb in that he doesn't have the intelligence to read the offense and anticipate anything. So despite his physical ability Landry is often a step or two late on the play. He's also dumb in his behavior, antics etc, which is just absurd for such an underwhelming player.

Edit: I think Landry is actually one of the dumbest players I've seen in a long time. Keep in mind when his physical ability deteriorates he's worthless.

Laughable? yes. If LL was healthy no way Doughty is as good. But from what I see with LL being out so much recently, and when they both are playing close to the line as a SS what they provide is not much different from the other. Both make takles, both force rush the QB, both screw up on occasion by being in the wrong place or rather getting out of position.

So ... yes about as good.

Re: Laron Landry - Redskin for life?

I'm talking all things equal and both guys are healthy, LL is the superior player.

Of course Doughty is better at this moment, LL hasn't even been playing and is now on IR.

I found something else that gets my goat.

I think we are on the same page.

I like LL. He looks like a machine. He should be the next Terminator but ... and it's a big but, LL is not FS material. He's SS material. I don't care what position he played in college cause it's a lot different in the NFL.

and yes Doughty is a back up. Which is why it's sad to say that both make the same mistakes. Both are decent tacklers when in the right place at the right time but both have a tendency to get out of position or use poor tackling skills at times. Otherwise both can stop the run.

Neither play well as a FS. Which is why on my list of positions to draft I keep saying I feel FS is more important right now then CB. With a bonified FS there would be more help over the top for the CB's which would make our secondary better.

I voted, "absolutely", but I do not want to see the Redskins improve.

Matty this is precisely the reason Landry isn't worth more than a minimal risk to the team. He's been gimpy for two consecutive seasons now and as SS mentioned seems to have chosen treatments that are not the most reliable.

And again I don't think it can be overstated how far Landry regresses when his physical ability is less than perfect...he's not a player who can make up for it with his brains.

Before contract talks even begin, he would of course have to be cleared medically and the team would know if he is a medical risk or not. If he's ok, I expect he would be re-signed to a multi-year deal. If he's a medical risk they have a decision to make.

The problem is Landry has to decide pretty much right away (and as of last night, he hadn't officially decided from what I heard) whether to undergo the surgery.

And even then it might be too late. He's going to be in a boot for up to 4 months after surgery (as I understand it) and then we're talking probably June or July before he can really do anything truly physical again.

I'm no doctor, but unfortunately it seems that the Redskins (or whoever) have to make a guess on Landry next spring
