obviously you know or have had some sort of interaction with the guy, or have been told that he is a cool guy, and really nice. For that reason, id love it if he were healthy and playing at his NO level. But he is always injured, might as well use the money on a young lineman who can stay healthy, build a rapport with his other lineman and RG3, and grow with the team. JB to me was a complete trade bust, and I wish we had that pick back, but so it goes......

LiRibeus is riding the bench and keeping it warm. Maybe the Forestor and Shanahan are keeping an eye on in practice and seeing him develop but feel he's not ready to contribute yet on offense.

Its hard to judge since we dont know what the assignments are.

Given Shanahan doesnt have the best track record drafting defensive talent, i'd feel alot better if we resolved most of our secondary concerns in free agency. Not sure what the market is going to be next year or our exact cap room, but good cornerbacks are expensive.
To tell you the truth, I think we could do a hell of alot better if we can just add ONE solid starting CB, and have JW start the other side, and DH play the nickelback. And then with the safeties, this will be the hardest position to fill. I say we keep Merriweather, and add a young buck in the second round to start for us. I swear I hope we can both Madoodoo and Doubty. I feel that we can find better options than them, younger as well, on the FA market or through some sort of trade, maybe even the middle rounds of the draft.

One thing is for sure, our scouting department had better be working overtime for this next draft, cause without at least a starter CB or safety, the defense will continue to bleed out, Orakpo or not.

Would you rather us be hating on Shanny? Not only did he trade a valuable pick for a injured player, but he doubled down on that SAME frigging injured player by signing him to a contract in the previous off-season.

Re: Redskins Offensive Line: 2012 Unsung Heroes

If this unit finishes the season healthy, knock on wood, it's going to be hard for anybody to come into camp next season and crack the starting lineup; Tyler Polumbus included.

Coaches are very relunctant to tinker with success, even if there's a weak link. Polumbus hasn't been great, but he has held his own this season.

NC Skins-technically we got Niles Paul as well in the deal and JL is in the plans for next year

Brown should not be blamed. He's tried to get onto the field.

As for his acquisition, it was kind of a high risk/high reward thing from the beginning. Unfortunately we got the risk part of that deal. If he had gotten healthy, as was surmised at his acquisition, we would have a kick-ass offensive line right now.

But even when he did play, he was VERY mediocre, almost bad.

um, your history is off. JB didn't play like a champ in NO, that's part of why they traded him. he got like a millionity false starts called on him. not saying he was a chump, but it was a bit of a surprise when they let him go.

our mistake was giving him a big contract, or not doing due dilligence i guess. he's still not making tons for a starting tackle, but for a guy that isn't playing... that hurts.

Well if BW stays hurt for three years than this would be a fair statement. Personally i think its ridiculous for anybody to call Brown a no good bum- im sure his hip didnt mean anything personal against the Skins. Now haynesworthless was a no good bum. Like SS said im sure Brown would relish the chance to earn his money. Its a shame really.

Well, it stands to reason. This was a Vinny Cerratto kind of move by Shanahan. You don't trade away a 3rd round pick for an injured player. The trade for Brown was in my opinion worse than the trade Ceratto made for Jason Taylor.
