Re: Cut Predictions

Pretty sure you've got the $1 million and $4 million backwards

Re: Cut Predictions

That's a bit outdated it seems

Re: Cut Predictions

Jammal Brown anyone? Don't be surprised if the Redskins part ways with him. That hip of his will never get better. Mike Shanahan has to realize that by now.

Re: Cut Predictions

Well I was clearly wrong about Cooley. Doesn't make much sense, in the overall scheme of things this looks like short sighted wishful thinking at best.

Shanahan's excuse about wanting to give him a chance to be a starter somewhere else... how to put it...

Smoke up ass?

That might have flown for the heyseeds in Denver but not here. Skins fans have to be savvy enough to know that cutting a guy after week three of preseason, is not giving him a chance to latch on as a starter elsewhere. Yeah he might get on as a backup somewhere. But the only worse time to cut a player you supposedly "care about" would be um... well no it would be anytime now to next week.

Personel wise, they took possibly the only deep roster position where its not uncommon to keep 4 players, and make it one of the teams weak spots. And the wishful thinking; Paul has looked borderline in routes, bad in blocking and very undersized. Davis did nothing this preseason to make me believe he's improved his poor blocking. And if he can't learn how to go up and get jump balls, he's not going to become the elite TE that his athletic ability would seem to suggest he should be. Forget about being one toke from a season long suspension. They basically have two TE's and an experiment on the roster. only one of them can block worth a Damn.

This and the Cundiff move are both kinda head scratchers. And appear to be a little regression since the seeming improvements after the bad Mcnabb and Brown trades. If you wanted to free up the money you make the move months ago.... if you want him to have a chance to start elsewhere you do it months ago.

Its tough to cut a fan favorite, there was never going to be a good time to cut Cooley. Period. Most people cant see that because they are a fan, but this is a business and Cooley was never going to be a part of this rebuilding process. When RG3 is ready in a couple of years to take this team to the next level, Cooley was not part of the plan. The same could be said for Santana Moss....if we could find a younger slot guy??? Who knows???
