Re: Grade the Redskins Moves So Far

I know we've got all those guys back. By value, I really meant include them when talking about addressing the o-line. Because it's often as much about who you are able to keep as you who add.

Montgomery is versatile and Kory is young and was actually doing very well at the end of 2010/start of 2011 before he got hurt

This. It's amazing how little respect Kory L. and Will M. get on here. They're not world beaters but both of them are very solid for what we ask of them.

Re: Grade the Redskins Moves So Far

Smoot, some of the ES insiders have been hinting that Jim Haslet is on borrowed time, and that if Raheem Morris can pick up the 3-4 defense, then he'll be the new DC the following year. Heard any rumblings?

Re: Grade the Redskins Moves So Far

I like the way Montgomery and Lichtensteiger has played. They are indeed solid contributors to the Redskins offensive line. I haven't witnessed Montgomery allowing the type of penetration that Casey Rabach allowed. Will Montgomery really isn't a bad center/guard. He's just underrated. As for Lichtensteiger, I'm satisfied with the way he's play for the Redskins on the offensive line the past couple of seasons. I expect him to be even better when he comes back from his ACL injury.

Following year I don't know about that. I don't think Haslett has ever really comfortably established himself here and I don't believe he and Shanahan (Mike) always see eye to eye.

Anyhow, there are plenty of people who believe that ultimately MS will move full-time up stairs and the new leaders of the team on the field will be Kyle and Raheem-with one as head coach and the other as assistant/associate head coach/coordinator.

But I don't expect that to be next year

Re: Grade the Redskins Moves So Far

I voted B, better than expected. I like the move up to get RGIII or Luck. The organization realized that the quarterback play was mediocre and needed to make a drastic move. They gave up too much because there are too many other teams with similar situations. I like the aggressive move. The grade could have been an A if Fletcher was under contract. I think the salary cap penalty has made the Fletcher deal difficult. I'm skeptical about the wide receiver upgrades. I think there will be a lot of competition in training camp, but I don't see any clear #1 and #2 receivers. The secondary upgrades added depth, nothing more.

It's almost humorous that after two terrible seasons there would be any anticipation/expectation about how Mike and Kyle will run the team beyond 2012. Win some games and make the team competitive then we'll "talk" lol...

I wonder who those people are? Do you think they'll survive if we win 4-6 games?

Who will survive? All of them?

We're going to win more than 6 games so it's not a concern to me

There would have to be injuries of catastrophic proportions for us to win 4-6 games this season. Even IF that's the case, the hopes of a short leash on Shanny are wasted. He's locked in for 5 yrs, especially with a rookie QB. There may be some movement on assistants (Haslett's deal is up after this year) but the big 3 (MS, BA, KS) will be here for the duration.

So you are the type that is going to call one of the boldest trades in NFL history, ordinary. I can understand love it or hate it, but to call this offseason ordinary is delusional. Last year we were expecting a new QB, and we got two, Beck and Crumpton,. Infact, I have been looking for a new Qb every year, since we lost Rypien. All I know is, I am extremely excited, and the Redskins are doing everything in there power, minus 36 million, to make this team better.

Re: Grade the Redskins Moves So Far

When I wrote pretty ordinary, I didn't mean in terms of the magnitude of the move in terms of its "front page headline" ability, but in terms of pretty ordinary as in we didn't get better or even get worse. We kind of just stayed the same

Wow. RG3 gives us a chance at greatness. Our franchise put all there eggs in the RG3 basket. He will either make us a contender or set us back five + years. I would call this the biggest move we have made in Redskins history.

Re: Grade the Redskins Moves So Far

Seems one of the ES insiders breaking some good news on Twitter.

Busy day tweeps but caught a break real quick. Jackson you know about already. London will be done before Monday. Expect some restructuring of contracts before Monday as well.

Good to have LF back in the fold.


Actually, JLC was on top of this as well.

Re: Grade the Redskins Moves So Far

I chose "A".

#1- I don't see how anyone would not pick "A" simply if the team got RG3. The moves made to just to get him are "A" quality. Ok did I think too much was given? yes. but the fact still remained we needed a QB to hang their hats on and hopefully after the draft we all can forget about talking about that position as a need.

#2- This team needed an upgrade at WR. Well actually many spots, but getting a QB and not giving him weapons would be stupid. Our WR corps now looks a ton better.

#3- OL is what I think is haning everyone up from giving the team an "A". I know we need an upgrade or atleast more talent. I seriously think since the CAP space was taken away they had to alter their plans. Notice WR and FS/S was picked up. I think OL is going to be fixed in the draft. Picking up a RT and a G would help a ton. Remember it was only the OL's second year learing the blocking scheme and with some it was their first yr because of the change over. The OL looked a lot better towards the end of the season and with a few additions should be a lot better.
