The secondary is a potential disaster. You said it....They need to REALLY strike gold with the 3rd and 4th rounders and hopefully those picks will be secondary and 0-line. Those two guys might have to be starters or play significant time.

Josh Johnson?? Really??? :confused:
how many more years Shanny got? Id really like Mo Hurt to step up on the inside at Guard, think he can improve and make a difference. RT is a serious issue, amazed this hasnt been addressed.

Gotta say, little disappointed in the Skins effort in FA to improve the team. Little headway in the secondary and Oline. Great effort to get a QB and WRs which is awesome, but not resigning Fletch is troubling as well.

So are we taking the chance with Kory L coming off a serious knee injury who wont be able to step on the field to possibly late august? Or Jamal Brown while still decent in run blocking, but is horrible pass blocker?

At this time we still have no answer at safety other than Maryweather(feminine spelling until he proves otherwise) who has struggled immensely the last 2 years at safety. A good friend who is a Vikings fan, first thing he said about C Griffin "talented, but takes alotta plays off. Needs to be motivated to give 90%". We have 3 spots at safety and 2 spots at CB including nickle where we need bodies. Gomes is the only guy worth returning at safety, he could challenge for a starters spot which is promising.

We need to grab some remaining talent. Our picks in the 3rd and 4th rounds are extremely important.

We need to pick it up a little bit, letting Josh Johnson get away is disappointing.
The Patriots added about 3.5 (using AV as a measuring stick) times as much vet talent as the Redskins did, using about half the cap space to do so.

It can be done, but the Redskins obviously felt their entire roster was really close to being playoff-caliber, just was short on the end of passing and receiving.

So now that those needs are taken care of: super bowl!

Here's why nothing this team does surprises me: I saw Casey Rabach start 32 games AFTER I realized he was a known weakness on the offensive line that opposing coordinators would exploit. Then after those 32 games, Shanahan gave him (and Mike Williams!) a 3 year contract extension. And he arguably played worse for Shanahan/Forester than he did for Zorn/Bugel.

Call me crazy, but I don't see a snowball's chance in hell of that happening. Griffin is too smart and too talented to not have on the field, especially after what we gave up for him. Even if it means scaling back the playbook for him, he will be out there.

Re: 2012 Redskins Free Agency Tracker

Why the hate for Josh Johnson? I personally dont think he is a bad player and see him as 3rd QB who could push then replace Rex as the no 2 this year or next year. i was disappointed

Re: 2012 Redskins Free Agency Tracker

i think we might be out of cap space until the fine gets reduced or players restructure.

Re: 2012 Redskins Free Agency Tracker

So, Anthony Collins re-signed with the Bengals. Do we have any other plans to improve our OL in free agency? Offer Demetrius Bell a one year contract, make him prove it. I hear the Bills are only offering a one year vet min. Give him a bit more. See how he does. At worst, he's solid depth.

Look for Chris Neild to get a lot of playing time @ NT this coming season.

Next years NT class will be better. We can use our first round pick on one in 2013.

We won't have a 1st round draft pick in 2013 or the year after.

Re: 2012 Redskins Free Agency Tracker

so stallworth is gone to the pats and eric henderson signs a 1 year deal... the MLB/ILB market has been terrible for the players.

tulloch only get 25 in a 5 year deal, henderson takes a 1year, demeco goes to the team that was interested in fletcher...

maybe we can get him cheap cheap... llike 3-4mill a year.

You mean give significant playing time to Neild? Because he's coming off of a decent rookie season. He sacked Eli Manning twice in his first NFL game. Cofiled is the starter at NT, but expect Neild to figure significantly into their plans. They very well could draft another nose tackle, but it would be in the mid to late rounds of this year's draft.

I think you are taking Dirt seriously when in fact he is just playing around. He is playful because he is in deep denial of the truth that next year's draft class is ALWAYS better. Poor man.

We should just skip the draft this year because there is no one worth taking until next year.

That's what I was thinking.
