Exactly! No 2nd round pick = DOOOOOOOOOOMED! Who cares if RG3 could make as big a difference as multiple players?!

Why worry about labeling it as rebuilding or not? Call it whatever you want. All I care is that the team heads in the right direction.

WOW! What will the saints do with no 2nd round pick for 2 whole years. They may as well stop playing football. Its not that bad, if the scouts are doing their job the skins will survive.

Worthless? No. Personally I'm glad that we traded up to draft a long snapper.

I don't call it rebuilding. Shanahan and Allen have retooled an once aging roster and made it younger by adding key players here and there. This team will keep getting younger as it gets better.

Re: A Clarification on whether the Redskins are Re-Building

Young QB, and a lot of new WR's I say we are rebuilding its somewhat similar to the 49ers.

Re: A Clarification on whether the Redskins are Re-Building

That's one of my all time favorite movies.

Anyway. I don't consider it re-building... To me re-building is when you're missing major parts (QBs, RBs, WRs, etc) or after you've completely blown up the team (i.e. Colts).

Feels like we're just adding a few missing pieces. I feel like last year we could've been good, if we had had just 2 or 3 more valuable positions filled properly... And some o-line depth.

Because if everybody says rebuilding it suggests a problem in the way that I presented the evidence. I was trying to evaluate, not persuade.

I know there are gems to be found Ruh, and there are first round busts, but for one year we start off with a third round pick. I just hope our scouts earn their money. They are going to have to be the ones to pick up the slack with the RG III deal.
I think there is cause to be concerned, but you have to understand we have a lot of young players to work with right now. Sure it sucks to not have first round talent, but if we are able to a.) develop the young talent we have right now and b.) continue our ability to get mid-round players that can start, I think we will be alright.

That doesn't mean that the team cannot be successful.
I've always felt the saving grace for Mike Shanahan the GM is the acumen of Mike Shanahan the coach.
What I've heard and observed from Mike Shanahan suggest to me that like most coaches, he will always believe any team that he coaches can win now.

or the more direct answer: not rebuilding
I agree, though I think if the team had gotten pre-2006 Mike Shanahan instead of what we've had on the sideline the last two years, its very possible (maybe probable) that we'd have at least a winning season with him.

Re: A Clarification on whether the Redskins are Re-Building

What year is it that we are starting with a 3rd round pick? Did we become New Orleans overnight?
