So does that mean we keep Paulsen or Cooley? Cause at this point, I would lean towards Paulsen.

We don't have that luxery.
If he develops into a starter (and God willing he won't see any game action), unfortunately there's a salary cap. We won't be able to sign him to a reasonable contract as a back-up. We can hold him for his 4th yr., but after that he'll surely leave and we'll get nothing.

Grossman should only be here as long as Shanny Jr, to mentor the young QBs in his system, if he sees the field....we're F'd.

Yep and it's questionable because he just isn't very good.

I expect the TEs to be Davis, Paul, and Paulsen

Are you expecting a Cooley trade or an outright cut?

Re: Redskins at Bears Post Game Thoughts

it sucks that one knee injury turns you into a crappy TE :/ I think cooley can probably play pretty well still, but since i haven't seen him on the field at all really, it's hard to tell.


that said, the zone scheme requires a good blocking TE since the RB reads inside/outside cuts based off of his ability to stop his guy, so paul and paulsen wouldn't surprise me at all.

next offseason imagine we'll be grabbing a good RT and OG and switching out hall with someone that can play better coverage. i think we got spoiled by champ and DG and springs (when healthy) and ST and all them. we've had great #1 DBs for a long time, but the defensive philosophy's changed.

Re: Redskins at Bears Post Game Thoughts

Here's an idea at TE.
Davis cant/wont block...that is essential for us.
Why not keep Cooley, Paulsen, Niles Paul, and trade Davis.
I know he has amazing upside...but he sucks at blocking which is critical for us.
He has trade value now, and paulsen can block, cooley is ok and niles paul is developing and loves to hit. We have serious needs at RT and corner and safety.
Why not replace Davis with a blocking TE like Paulsen, and add a far better RT acquired through a trade?
I would much rather give RG3 1 more second to pass and a better running game that one more great pass catcher?

Imagine a legit blocking TE and RT on the edges with developing young interior draft pick talent to shore up our Oline?...we can live without a top TE...we cant live with crappy blocking, not with a rookie QB. Cooley has hands, apparantly so does Paulsen..let the trade Davis talk begin!

Problem is Davis is a stud in the redzone and obviously we needs more options down there. Also I don't see anyone giving too much for a suspended TE from a year ago.

I can't believe anyone in their right mind would say that there's a QB controversy.

Me too. I heard quite a few calls for Cousins to start when I was listening to the radio after the game. Pretty ridiculous. Not gonna happen.

I like Cousins, but he wouldn't have played and better than RG3 given how well prepared the starters for the bears were...

Re: Redskins at Bears Post Game Thoughts

I've always hated the "game planning" argument, since we didn't game plan -- but neither did the other team.

However, anyone know if Shanny was testing something / someone out yesterday? Like the game before, it sure seemed like the strategy was to keep throwing to Banks to test him out, and keep running right to test those guys out. I wonder whether this time it was something to test the O-line (fail!), or to test the O-line with longer drops against the cover 2, etc.

Or maybe it was just a bad game.

Ok so I see what your saying about Cousins, but that means we have him for atleast 3 yrs and can trade him before his 4th year or find a way to pay him. 3 yrs for him to get better and show what he can do if he's asked to to be decent trade bait. Plus it give us time to draft another QB to develope to replace him.


Grossman should not be here at all. Period. Some how I was fooled into believing that his knowledge of the system was a valuable asset to the team. In hind sight all his interceptions proved he didn't have as much of a grasp on the system as one would think. Grossman was the weak link. If anything proved it it was him coming in during the first preseason game and (yet again) throwing INT's. WTF? Cousin came in and looked better. He came in during the second game and looked 10x better then Grossman ever has.

Lets get rid of the old and bring in the new. Heck I'd get rid of Crompton also, bring in some other young QB to sit on the PS and learn this year.
