Re: FOX Sports Says Pierce is Gone

Damn.

Stayed up til the early hours waiting for news of Pierce and Smoot only to wake up this morning and find Pierce is gone. Gutted.

We better resign Smoot now, time to look after our own rather than keep throwing cash at players who have never worn the jersey.

Hope you guys dont mind a Redskin fan from the UK joining the Forum, ive been following them since 84 when we got the NFL on tv over here. I KNOW Coach Gibbs will get us back to the top where we belong.

Re: FOX Sports Says Pierce is Gone

I'm bummin' about Pierce. He still hasn't signed yet but it sounds like he could make it official today when he visits Giants stadium. I'm sure the coaches were aware this might happen and have a plan B in place. Whether that plan B involves Barrow, another free agent, or someone like Marshall remains to be seen. Either way I'm going to miss Pierce, he was alot of fun to watch.

Re: FOX Sports Says Pierce is Gone

maybe signing marshal was stating that maybe one of our power olbs is going middle, atleast for this season. i remember hearing about marcus was willing to play middle when we found out barrow wasnt gonna play the first few weeks of the season last year

I would not be suprised if Marshal is the guy to go into the middle. In addition, he has two all-pro linebackers on both sides of him, and he did a very good job last year. I still am holding out small hope for Peirce, and really wanted him here for continutiy more than anything. When putting their skills right next to each other, Perice is better than Marshal, but I dont think it would be that big of a difference. This is all assuming that Marshall is a natural LB and could play in the middle as I have heard.

Re: FOX Sports Says Pierce is Gone

This is a case of a system make a good outside linebacker great. Pierce is smart and a big time field leader. But for that kinda of money enjoy the military leader in NY. The Redkins always have a plan b if they did not they would have signed him before 3/2. I think everyone is making way to big a deal over this. Catch you latter Pierce thanks for the ride thus far but be prepared for a little ass whopping when we face you this year.

By the way he has not officially signed yet, so you never know.

Re: FOX Sports Says Pierce is Gone

Welcome to the forum AndySkinUK. One of our moderators (RedskinRat) is a UK expatriot, so perhaps the two of you can discuss kidney pies and other inedibles.

The Pierce offer is a blow - primarily because he is the best availble young MLB with 4-3 experience. Bell is similar, but since he has played so much more, he has a lot more wear on him. Hartwell is a stud, but has played 3-4 for the bulk of his career.

I have a lot of faith in Williams' ability to prepare his players. Pierce became an extension of Williams on the field, which helped everyone learn the scheme. The majority of our starters will have experience now, so the loss isn't as bad as it could be. Still, if that's the offer on the table and we can still match it, I'd do so.

Re: FOX Sports Says Pierce is Gone

Losing Pierce is a big loss to the team, but he can be replaced with the guys we have.
We do need to re-sign Smoot and find some help on the D-line. We also need to upgrade the receiving corps. Signing Rabach is a big plus for the offense.

Re: FOX Sports Says Pierce is Gone

I would love it if the Pierce stays true to his word and gives the Skins a chance to match it, and they do....but I just don't know if they will. If he goes, it sucks that it is to a division rival , but considering how they did last year, Williams should be able to just plug someone else in there.
I still hope they find a way to keep him though.

Re: FOX Sports Says Pierce is Gone

Not what I wanted to read when I got to work this morning. What the F#*K!! I guess I'll give Williams the benaffit of the doubt that he knows Pierce's worth. But does he have to go the the f#*king Giants?? :frusty:
I sure hope we can sign Smoot!!

Re: FOX Sports Says Pierce is Gone

I really like pierce(liked if this signing does take place ) and I was one fan who wanted him resigned the most out of our free agents, but that deals a little too rich IMO. He's an incredibly intelligent player but he's not the most physically gifted LB and as others have posted he played in a incredibly well put together system. Averaged out that's over 6 million a year (I know that it could be restructured to be back loaded and probably is) and I personally don't feel a player who's had one really good season, preceeded by a few average seasons, warrants that big of a portion of our cap when our DC has shown he knows how to get the best of anyone he plugs into a spot and young talent waiting in the wings. If pierce leaves, I don't see us signing anyone major to take his spot but they could easily draft someone in the 3rd or 4th round and use a mixture of Barrow, if healthy, and Marshall in the middle. Plus no matter who we put in at MLB, they won't be in too bad of shape with a pro bowl lb on either side of him.
