If you're tired of reading my posts, don't comment on them. Look, there's a number of posters on here I don't bother to respond to. There's only so many ways you can put "I disagree" in a post. If I'm not interested, I just skip over when I see the username.

If calling something a "critical signing" comes off as overly negative to someone, then I don't have the time for them.
It wasnt that part of the post that I was saying was negative. I agree 100%. It was the latter, which I rather have plan A than plan B. Id like to think Riley can improve in coverage and I like to think Fletcher is not hobbled and still can produce. U just stated the worse case possible of Riley play and Fletch not being able to produce, which again are possible. I dont know so much if they are probable. Lets hope not, right?

Re: London Fletcher re-signs with Redskins

I don't care what we paid. The guy has been criminally under-appreciated in his career so I am glad the FO stepped up and gave him a thank you deal. He deserved it. And he's still good enough that it's not ridiculous. Happy we've got him back and happy for him.

Re: London Fletcher re-signs with Redskins

Glad Fletch is back. He's the anchor of our defense. But the front office MUST get someone behind him ASAP. As for the money, w/out quesation he deserved the raise. But at this point of his career he should be on one year contracts. The 14 million's probably spread out over two years?? Not sure giving him that amount is smart but hopefully he'll play two more years at a high level.

He's worth the money. However at his age it's risky business giving him 14 million.

The reason people were upset about Pierce and Clark were they were guys that the Redskins drafted. Actually wasn't Pierce a free agent? They paid their dues HERE, and when it was time for a raise the Skins turned their backs. Then they go out and overpay for other teams players. I think everyone here knows how important Fletch is to our team. Hopefully he can play two more years.

"Too much" indicates that the money could be spent elsewhere on a younger more productive player. LF is a good roll model and player, however the league is the NFL (not for long) and at some point in the near future the skins are going to have to go in another direction. LF is not going to last forever, the team and it's followers will have to accept a new leader and go forward. Players get old, a team cannot set itself back by rewarding past performance, new leaders have to emerge. Please realize that the skins haven't been successful with him, how much difference has he made on the field in wins and losses.

Philosophically your example would apply to every other player on the team........

Well first off Pierce took a minimally better deal to go to a division rival. It could be argued that a successful UDFA might feel like he owed the team that gave him a chance a slight discount. And Clark is a decent player that fits their scheme perfectly. He isnt some huge loss.

Re: London Fletcher re-signs with Redskins

If there is one player on this roster that deserves to be "overpaid" it's Fletcher. The team has gotten younger over the last couple of years and needs solid veteran leadership from a player who still plays at a high level and is a model citizen off the field. I'd like to have a roster full of players like him.

Re: London Fletcher re-signs with Redskins

Of all the.....trash this team has mistakenly overpaid for over the years, I could totally endorse over paying London Fletcher a mil or two....IF we overpaid. To date he has given no indication of same. So far we paid for a Pro-bowl LB.........

I think people need to see this from Fletch's perspective, this is probably his last contract as an NFL player, he should be looking to get paid. I am okay with the money paid, b/c he brings so much to the team.

Re: London Fletcher re-signs with Redskins

Think of the cost of NOT signing fletcher....not just in terms of dollars but wins and losses....more time playing defense means less time to score, fatigue on defense, worse production...etc....and none of this factors in that he essentially is the general on the field adjusting the d....it would be a SIGNIFICANT LOSS if we went cheap and lost him, borderline stupid
