Re: How will our defense hold up next year?

so, should we have paid $10mill this year (to LL and OA) to watch gomes and doughty start another 13 games for us? that doesn't sound like a better idea at all.

No that's not a good plan. If I was going that route, I would have moved on from Doughty, upgraded to a starter, and turned Atogwe into a sub package player who is reliable if he needed to start. Then if the special teams unit requires it, I would roster a fifth safety.

That player would have been Dwight Lowery, Brodney Pool, or Mike Adams, but all are signed now. I also would consider signing a corner and moving him.

Gomes is more than enough of a contingency plan for Landry at this point in his career.

Re: How will our defense hold up next year?

this defense will be just fine and better than mediocre ... we continue to make smart moves .. resigning Carriker (check) .. letting Landry be Landry (check) ... Get Jenkins healthy (hopeful check) ... Keep D-Hall (check even though he gets hated on big time) ... Let OJ go (check) ... umm Orakpo, Kerrigan, Riley, Gomes, Neild all solid young players .. Josh Wilson will be better this year ... signing Merriweather was a great move .. love this team

Lol no. With their recent history, Doughty and Gomes would be starting anyway for a good portion of the season because Landry and Atogwe are rather injury prone.

You forgot Fletcher. Therefore, your defense fails.

There must have been some validity to what he was saying considering the beloved Shanahan genius think tank made the move he was petitioning for on this site.

Did you also give Grossman pneumonia during the bye week?

Re: How will our defense hold up next year?

offense will help the defense, less time on the field and more points to play a little more loose. Defense will be about the same stat wise, maybe a little stronger. It WILL NOT be worse.

A friend of mine told me that the Redskins were talking to Jameel McLain to take Fletchers place. Has anyone else heard that.

Yes, that fanarchist guy who ad nauseum made the brilliant argument, "Beck couldn't be worse than Grossman." That guy was certainly proven correct.
