Re: O-Line Edition: Free Agency and the Draft

As a free agent pickup at wide receiver, who would you guys rather have, Mario Manningham, Pierre Garcon, Vincent Jackson, or Marcus Colston? Reports have already surfaced that Mike Shanahan is going after Manningham.

Garcon and Manningham are both inconsistent as hell, with Manningham being the worse of the two. I would rather have Vincent Jackson out of this group, but would have some sort of "character clause" in his contract in case he's suspended again. I really like Colston too, but injuries is a issue.

edit. Let's keep this topic to OL please.

Too bad there isnt a RT to give that coin too. Because there lies the biggest need along the Oline, and now with 2nd gone and our 1st round decided and the bums in FA at Tackle, dont expect much improvement. Hopefully Round 3 the Tackle from California is still available or we can move into the back into the second.

yeah lets talk about the same receivers we've talked about for the last 2 months in another thread, and lets make it O-line thread.

Good observation, however we need to have good interior protection. I don't think we should pay Nicks a boat load of money, but we should invest to get a guard in case Kory L. Has trouble coming back from his injury.

Re: O-Line Edition: Free Agency and the Draft

I'm amazed that people are wanting Garcon and Manningham. I have no desire for two average NFL wr's. We already have guys in Stallworth and Gafney that are just as good as those guys are. WR's don't win games in the NFL.

At this point Shanahan shouldn't be the decision maker. He's proven he isn't capable. If I were Snyder, I'd tell him to shut up and coach the team and leave the personel to the front office. We need to bolster the O-line if we're going to be starting a rookie.

Re: O-Line Edition: Free Agency and the Draft

There's no value with the free agent receivers. Even Morgan is going to get a ton of money.

There's enough bargains out there where if we wait until April, you can get a good receiver off FA for less than $2 million (Braylon Edwards, Chaz Schilens, Early Doucet, Jerome Simpson) on a one year show me deal, and I think we should. It would make a ton more sense than bringing Stallworth back. But big money for any of these FA receivers is a bad idea.

The draft is/was far more promising. And the trade market is intriguing because it's a buyer's market.

Not a bad idea.

Re: O-Line Edition: Free Agency and the Draft

So much for keeping this an o-line only thread

Anyway, back to the subject of the thread. What is the deal with McNeil, one moment he's a top LT in the league and the next he's being cut. Does he have health issues or something. I would like for the Skins to shore up the RT position and not roll the dice with J. Brown again.

Re: O-Line Edition: Free Agency and the Draft

Since March FA is so thin at OT, maybe we can find a FA right tackle after the June 1 round of cuts.

Pretty much, I was gonna go back and bump a random Hanyesworth thread and just open with "which WR free agent should we get Legudu Naane or Eric Weems?"

I think the market have a load of injury prone, vetern tackles, but that doesnt really solve our problem. Just dont overpay if we do it. I just dont want to see Jamaal Brown pass block for us anymore, its like playing craps...its just a matter of time.

I read somewhere that we may need to go with a veteran at RT since the options are not that great out there.
