Jason Smith to this point has been a huge bust. He was supposed to be Bradford's great blind side protector and instead he has struggled on the field, when he can get on it. We're not missing anything.

Second overall pick in 2009. Concussions and other injuries really hampered him though. Baylor guy.

Robert Gallery's career has been hall of fame compared to Jason Smith's. Dude has been a huge bust.

Lions are not going to get to the promised land if opposing defenses can just concentrate on stopping the passing game.
Although I do think the Lions need another back because of their current state, Kevin Smith hurt, Javid Best may be done for his career, LeShore is still injured as always and faces suspension when he comes back. Don't forget about 'ol Redskins Keiland Williams who is doing well there.

That being said, The Lions had the #1 passing offense in the league last year (number of attempts). Stafford threw for over 5000 yards. They have Megatron. They can throw it every since down without a back and defenses will not be able to shut them down easily. I guarantee you they will throw it 40-45 times a game if they have to no problem.

Re: Official Redskins First Cuts Thread

So has there still been no official confirmation about the compensation for Barnes? I know someone said a 7th round pick but I thought that was speculative.

Redskins trade CB Kevin Barnes to Lions [this post has been updated] - The Insider - The Washington Post

Barnes, who served as the team’s third cornerback last season, recording 26 tackles, two interceptions and four pass breakups in 15 games, was competing for the same role this season. But he apparently lost that position battle to seven-year veteran Cedric Griffin, who signed as a free agent during the offseason.
Welcome the new cornerback, same as the old cornerback.

Re: Official Redskins First Cuts Thread

Numerous posts cite it as a conditional pick. Most likely depends on if he ends up making the team. Probably a 7th. Might escalate based on playing time too. I doubt it gets higher than a 5th. I mean they knew we were going to cut him anyways.

For a couple of 2nds they would be in the market for someone a hell of a lot better than Hightower.

And that doesn't change the fact we're not deep enough at RB to trade one away.

A little perspective. When we traded for Hightower we gave up Vonnie Holliday and a conditional pick (6th).

Re: Official Redskins First Cuts Thread

A couple Of 2s would and could get MJD. They aren't looking to make a deal like that anyway.

•edit... Unless they just brought Cerrato in as a GM.

Well you are obviously playing right into his side of the argument Matty. Everyone knows Vonnie is a perennial pro bowler and was the cornerstone of our offense, defense and special teams. Not to mention coaching, front office work, and concessions during the games.
