Solid and fair deal for both sides.

Now we wait to see what happens with guys like Trent Williams, Chris Cooley, D Hall, Jabar Gaffney and John Beck. Could see some cuts and restructures....no Williams won't be cut before you ask
Why are they keeping Beck on the roster at this point? Doesn't he make more than Grossman?

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.
Nearly every one of your posts are not only negative, but apparently cased on some alternate reality.

Fletcher hobbled? That is completely ridiculous.

You're the ultimate pessimist and it's beyond the point of just getting old. Your posts are beginning to hold the same value as those of Giantone and Sandtrapjack.

You claim to be a Redskins fan, but have you ever actually cheered for the team?


Anyway, you probably love the attention your out-of-touch posts receive so I'll finish up stroking your ego and just say...


Finally! Resigning London is one of the most important moves we've made this offeseason!

Re: London Fletcher re-signs with Redskins

Not to take this thread off course but I "ignore" a lot of people because dailogue with them is rarely ever worth it,but I probably can't "officially" since I'm a mod.

Anyhow, others should probably do the same or just add people to your ignore list.

Now back to London...

My guess is that they will use him as a camp arm and get rid of him during final cuts. It makes no sense to keep him otherwise...

Just skip over his post. You will see a large portion of text with a bunch of useless words and numbers this is when your brain says move to the next post just crap here.

There was a time when I actually enjoyed his post or got some information from them. If you read his post thinking everything he says is fact you are sadly misinformed. He just throws so much crap against the wall in hopes it will stick no one with any sort of life would have the time to research everything he says.

GT is someone who needs to step back and determine the quality of his life. If all he does (it seems that way at least) at the young age of 23 is research and write as many negative things as possible about the Redskins then he should recheck his priorities.

Do you know how small this board would become for you if you added GT to your ignore list?

Back when he'd focus on stats and breaking down the gametapes, I loved his posts too. (if that was him I'm thinking of)


I usually do skip over and should have this time, but even more ludicrous than saying Fletcher is "hobbled" was his statement that he's not negative...had to respond. Probably shouldn't have but I was still in the "almost falling out of my chair" state.

College-age know-it-alls won't listen to old geezers like us anyway.

Apologies. You posted this while I was replying.


Agreed, I should have ignored him.

So back to Fletcher...

I fully expect him to play the next 2 years at a Pro Bowl level, not saying he'll be recognized but his play really has not declined. He'll throw in another couple of interceptions and plenty of highlight reel hits.

I don't see him retiring until he's at least 40 unless he decides to leave before his play falls apart. Many players stay a year too long but if anyone has the intelligence and integrity to actually realize it's time to stop before it is too late, I think London would be that guy.

Re: London Fletcher re-signs with Redskins

5mill per is a lot better than 8-10 per like the first reports.

that's a great deal for the skins. It's funny that he could have not fired his agent and signed a better offer two months ago. oh well.

I think the waiting game really paid off for us... That seems odd that the Skins would offer him something higher and he ends up only signing for that much. His agent must really be terrible.

I see it this way too. It would be ideal if we draft another ILB this year or next for London to mentor. He is one of the smartest defenders in the game and his coaching/mentorship would be invaluable.
