Yep. A regular ol' Barnum and Bailey. Can you imagine it? V-Jax, FD, and TW rolling doobies in one corner of the locker room, the defensive players in another corner plotting bounties on their own offensive teammates (because the circus has twisted their sense of morality and right/wrong all upside down), all of the coaches tied up while FD teaches RG3 how to "speak bluntly."

In the meantime Dan Snyder sits up in his office laughing maniacally about how he's going to sign every big name free agent now that Mike S. is out of the way, and Bruce Allen hides under his desk wishing he were back in Tampa. The madhouse will prevail!

Fixed.

No, but in my opinion, we're already a circus. The Haynesworth and McNabb stuff is still fresh in mind. We dont have a single offensive leader on this team and our two best offensive players are coming of drug suspensions. This doesnt mean they are circus clowns in the same category as someone like T.O., but it shows their lack of professionism, discipline, and dedication.

I feel our team is in a very precarious position. If we add another player who has demonstrated the same lack of professionalism, discipline, and dedication, without countering that with a solid PROVEN LEADER who demands instant respect, then i think theres a strong liklihood that bad things would happen.

It my opinion that we currently dont have enough professional, disciplined, and dedicated players on our roster. If we want to add another one to the mix, we need to compensate something we havent had in decades - a strong, talented, and proven leader at the QB position.

IMO if we sign VJ that means we sign PM or a veteran FA starting QB.

Peyton won't be here. He wants another ring for sure and doesn't have much time left to do it. He is/should go to Cheifs, Houston, or 49ers.

Lots of receivers in this years draft look talented. I doubt we will give our second rounder away because I think they will use it on a WR. Trying to do what the Bengals did last year draft your starting QB and no 1 WR in the first two rounds.

When was the last time VJ got into trouble for his drug use? And if he's a concern cause he might get caught again and be sidelined then we might as well get rid of TW and Davis too since they are on their last leg also. No sense in taking risks.

That's what I was told last night. Seemed like 50-55 was what they were going to offer.

The Redskins have plenty of young WR's...what they don't have is a legitimate #1WR. They are not going to find a player they can safely project as a #1 WR in the 2nd round of the draft.

Yeah, I mean that's sort of the general expected dollar amount that's been around for him. Just didn't know the Redskins specifically had anything attached to him

I would like to see Byron Westbrook at strong safety more. He's not a good cover corner, but he's good enough to barely not get beat. He could make an exceptional strong safety.

Gaffney had over 900 yards with Bex at the helm. Vjax couldn't do any better than that? He only had 1100 yards with Rivers. Hell, Moss had 1500 yards with Brunell. Depends on what you mean by "work out". Rex to VJax probably wouldn't amount to many more wins, if any at all, but I don't think VJax would have any problems posting the same numbers. Rex can sling it around just fine. He just throws too many INTs. Lloyd is a bad example. He couldn't even get on the field.

not sure how you can say he would be a good strong safety, especially in our D where the strong safety is required to make alot of tackles and be involved in run support. i havent seen anything in westbrook to think he is capable of that, i think we are going to regret letting laron go if we cant find a good replacement.
