He coulda kept it professional but his lashing out every now and then just pissed off everyone, but that what the skins were, a drama filled circus. Change of scenery can be very beneficial for players, it was in Carlos's case.
Leaving the disfunction of the Skins is why a lot of players that leave the Skins suddenly seem to play better than they ever have. I also think its why players that dont seem very talented often play very good in solid organizations like NE, Pgh & Balt. That said I do think that MS is getting rid of the culture of disfunction in Wash.

I think this happens to every team in the NFL.

It seems that the two everyone is making a fuss about is Carlos and Andre, and both of them left for very understandable reasons that had nothing to do with how bad our management is and such. The redskins didn't want to pay Carlos big money, MattyK pointed it out, NO ONE ELSE DID.

Now that he finally held on to some picks, he'll get that big pay day finally. I thought we, as a fan base, were tired of over paying players? If we had given Carlos a top 5 CB contract, wouldn't that just be overspending again?

I also would like to mention that no one else brings up Ladell Betts, Rock Cartwright, Randy Thomas, Casey Rabach, Randel El, Fred Smoot and others who were released and allowed to walk.

Re: Around The NFL - Divisional Round

I just saw the NE didn't beat single a team in the regular season that finished over .500. Crazy.

And I know it's a few days late, but can someone please tell me why Gregg Williams is such a highly touted coordinator? His defenses have sucked for years now. Sure when the Saints won the SB they forced a ton of turnovers that year, but overall his track record is ho-hum at best IMO. Not too many people make Alex Smith look like a pro-bowler.

Re: Around The NFL - Divisional Round

Just heard on espn980 that Dez Bryant got arrested at a night club in Miami... Not seeing anything else about it, so stay tuned I guess.

I would not give more than a 3rd and a possible conditional for next year. He would be a risky investment at his age and coming from neck surgery.

Given his history, if I were a bartender I would not let him run a tab. Cash up front, Dez.

Good thing the Cowboys overlooked his character concerns.

Re: Around The NFL - Divisional Round

Another page of Carlos Rogers talk. Understand that we already had a bummed out corner who wanted out in Champ Bailey. Had Champ been allowed to test free agency, he would have gotten a HUGE ass payday because he showed it in his play here. Meanwhile, with first-class bitch Carlos, NOBODY wanted to even give him even a Drayton Florence-like contract (or he didn't want to take it) and instead had to "settle" for a show-me-what-you-got one year deal.

Re: Around The NFL - Divisional Round

Dashon Goldson reminds me of Sean Taylor.
I hope the Skins look like SF next year.
I hope the Skins look like NYG (in the playoffs) in years to follow.

Your words are duly marked.

Are you willing to reveal which of the two reviled QBs on the current Skins' roster will be retained as the starter and who will lead them to the NFC Championship game?

I don't see us going from 13th in the league in defense to a dominating, top 5 defense like San Fran. Unless we make some big pick ups in FA for the secondary, I don't think we will have enough draft picks to address all our secondary concerns this year. Especially if we are giving up picks to move up.

John Beck is better than Tom Brady. He was just using this year to build suspense. Next year he will dominate!
