Do they need a new strength & conditioning coach? I can't see him doing anything else.

However, since he still has not had surgery for some insane reason, I don't think we have to worry about him doing much damage against us, but seeing him in an Eagles uniform will make me puke. He was one of my favorite current Skins.
LaRon Landry was destined to be a bust with the Redskins. I'm not at all sad he's leaving. Maybe he can resurrect his career with either the Eagles or the Jets.

Bears are reportedly interested too.



Just shows how close the line between great and a disaster can be in the NFL.

Area 51 could have been so great...if only.

Re: Laron Landry - Redskin for life?

Saying LL was destined to be a bust is highly overrated. During the half a season that Landry and Taylor played together our secondary was playing amazing. With Landry patrolling the box Taylor was able to become the ballhawking safety we all envisioned (5 picks in the first half of 07) and we were all talking about how we were set at the safety position for years to come.

08 and 09 Landry fell off when they tried to move him to FS and he struggled to adjust, mainly because he's not a guy you can trust in space. But when Haslett joined the Skins with Shanny in 2010, the first half of 2010 saw Landry moved back to SS where he once again started balling his ass off before he got injured, and ever since then he's never been the same player.

He definitely has the potential to be a playmaker in this defense, all we have to do is put him in a position to succeed (aka in the box SS), minimize how often he gets left alone in coverage, and make sure that he's completely healthy.

You don't continue trotting a guy out on defense when he presents a huge liability. It took a while before the Cowboys realized it with Roy Williams even though the glitzy hits were great to look at on Sportscenter.

It's also the reason why the Patriots just up and released their 2 time pro-bowl safety Brandon Meriweather with no real backup in place.

Absolutely. Landry + #21 was a very effective tandem.

Re: Laron Landry - Redskin for life?

Yeah just read that. Sigh. This is one of those things you don't normally hear about where the player sacrifices for the team. It's just a shame the way things have turned out.

Re: Laron Landry - Redskin for life?

Said he hurt it when he shot up his ankle. Doesn't mean he tore his achilles becuase of the shot.

As part of the job you're expected to play hurt w/in reason. In hindsight you can always say any injury wouldn't have happened if... If there's really a correlation here & there was medical advice for him not to play, then I have some sympathy. Otherwise, it's football & everyone gets hurt, everyone has a short career compared to other professions. Sadly, his may be on the down side, I'm just not so eager to blame the Skins or deem him a total team player, just cause he tweets that he got hurt when his ankle was shot up.

Nice way to go about announcing that LaRon....
The nimrods should stay off Twitter.

Re: Laron Landry - Redskin for life?

Not that I think he'd actually suit up and play significant time for them, I just did not want to see him in green and black. (horrible uniforms by the way)

The Laron Landry that I saw play for the last 4 seasons in Washington was terrible in coverage and was beaten deep far too often. He would make one or two highlight reel hits but also give up a TD or two and a bunch of first down catches per game.

That is not my definition of a guy "balling his ass off"...

I find it funny when old people use the younger gen's slang.

Also did you read my entire post? I get the feeling if you had you probably wouldn't accuse me of saying Landry was a baller his entire time here.

That was LaRon at FS.


At SS, he was a force. Loved when he came on blitzes.
