Re: Laron Landry - Redskin for life?

I would hate to see LaRon go but its looking that way, is Atogwe coming back for sure next year? Are you guys sold on Gomes as a starter? I would like to see us go after Branch from the Raiders if Laron does go.

Don't know for sure, but read in Washington Examiner that Atogwe may be finished and that Gomes is not viewed as a starter. If both of those are accurate statements, Redskins may actually need to take a chance on Landry for at least one more season.

Somebody has to play back there.

Re: Laron Landry - Redskin for life?

I've been saying for a long time that the safety position is a huge problem in our defense, and it may be getting worst if we lose Atogwe and Landry. I hope there are some good FAs available, b/c we won't have any high picks to deal with this problem any time soon.

As I understand it, Shanahan and Atogwe don't have the best relationship (kind of like Shanahan and Gano). But much like Smith fights to the end for Gano, Haslett does the same for Atogwe.

Also, Atogwe wasn't entirely healthy this year.

I think he returns

Odd. Atogwe seems like a stand-up guy. He has been good in the past. I hope he sticks around for at least one more year.

I'm not even sure if he is a medium caliber safety.

He's an athlete but hes not a smart one.

He's not a game changer.

He doesn't make big plays.

He's injury prone.

If his contract is up let him go we can do better.
The only part of that I agree with is that he's injury prone. When he's healthy, he is most def a game changer. I can think of 3-4 games off the top of my head that I don't think we win if he's not playing.

I may have worded it wrong. It's not like they're jawing at each other it's just that sometimes the best players and best coaches aren't the biggest fans of each other

Wow! this thread took a sharp turn here, before that it was talk basically about him keeping his options open, including leaving town.

I'm always disappointed when guys drafted here want to leave, but that's just my romanticism of the glory days, hoping that most players will play well & spend their whole career in b&g. That said, I have never been able to really be a big LL fan. His rookie year was so promising but it's always seemed he's never quite taken that next step. His best year, 2010 was cut short by injury.

If he could be franchised & part of a trade package, that would make sense at this point. Or if we could match a team's offer per restricted FA that would still allow a trade w/out cap issues. I think the Rams would be interested given their rebuild in progress. Can't expect much value in return, but adding Landry to a deal might be the icing for the rams or someone else. When does the franchise label take place, same time (March 1) at FA right?

Re: Laron Landry - Redskin for life?

another thing about Landry I've mentioned in other threads, he doesn't seem to be a Shanny type player. My guess is that Shanny would've been much less likely to draft him if he were coach/prez in 07.

Oh, yeah I don't really know the answers to those questions. I have a feeling he might face a Carlos Rogers like situation, meaning one year deal to prove himself again.

I mean it's not that people doubt his skills it's that they're skeptical of a guy who hasn't gotten surgery yet. And on his end, he's worried surgery could essentially end his career.

I get the chuckles every time I hear this now! Who does Mike get along with lol? For that matter...is there a single player on the current roster to say as much? Haven't heard it...

I think it's an important factor, especially for those hoping Manning is our next QB. Manning from all accounts is a good guy who wants a good working relationship with everyone. Why would he have anything to do w/ Mike Shanahan after the McNabb fiasco etc etc?
