If a team trades for Gardner because they don't have a big play receiver, they will still be without a big play receiver.


Prior to Feeley going to Miami, he had four starts in the NFL and had won all of them. That's how he commanded a 2nd round pick from a team in need of a QB. How many games has Gardner won by his feats on the field. I recall one back in his rookie year when he caught a bomb to beat somebody in the final minutes or maybe in OT. Was it the Chargers? Since then?
OOPS sorry replied to wrong one.

Actually it was his Roookie year the 6th game of the Schotty era when they were 0-5 Arringotn had a pick ran back for a td. It was against Carolina. Gardner had like 208 yds. Still his career high. He caught the pass for a TD to tie the game and make it go to OT. Then Caught a Bomb not quite enough for the TD to like the 2 or 3 yd line. then we went ahead and Kicked the FG for the win in OT.

Correct me if Im wrong on this please.
Thank yall

Anybody heard any updates on Smoot? If there has been a post about it and I didn't see it, I apologize. I've been out of town.
Regret nothing. At one time it was exactly what you wanted.

Williams schems have disgised the weakness before but opposing teams have a year load of tapes to disect those schemes .

As for Gardner I think we will struggle to get a good third simply because I don't think their are enough teams with the need for a solid No.2 ... Only the Chargers and Bucs seem to be in the frame right now.

The only effectivly drafted WR by the Redskins out of the three listed are Gardner and Taylor, Coles was made a Redskin when the JETS failed to match the offer sheet, Coles was a RFA when we got him.

No updates on Smoot and there probably won't be until we hear he's leaving town.

If history is any indicator, we'll have some idea that Smoot is on his way out when we start to hear/read stories by local journalists saying that Smoot was a "problem in the clubhouse" or was "not open to coaching" or "stubborn" or things like that. The Redskins FO/PR Dept has a history of leaking those kinds of things about players just prior to them "leaving town". The most blatant example of that was Brian Mitchell.

So, keep your eyes open and your ears tuned...

Getting Coles was like drafting him. That's why I'm not against getting RFA. You use your first rounder on a player that has already established they can play in the NFL.

I hope we get something for him. I hate for the same thing that happened with Trotter happen with Gardner. I would love to see us do something like we did with Bryan Johnson. Or something unorthidox, like him as a part of a multi team trade or something.
That got ugly fast
