It seems Coles has to be the man on offense, so we will probably never know what his YPC would have been with a TEAM like the Patriots. He came on with the Skins to be Spurrier's superstar, he wants out because he doesn't want to play 2nd fiddle to Portis

Coles couldn't hack it on the Pats, not enough balls to go his way, LOL

Re: Skins sign Patten

The Smurfs are back!
I'm so happy to have added David Patten! I was scared with the Redskins recent past that we'd pick up Burress. Patten is a proven WR where as Burress is about as reliable as Gardner in the catch department while being quite speedy on the flats. Burress like Gardner seems to fail in properly excuting his routes consistantly. Patten can fly and will catch most balls. And what is the stat last season? 37 1st downs on 44 catches? Uh noone on our team can top that. Burress? Hell no. Patten is good person and a proven great player who we didn't have to spend ridiculous money for. He's got 3 rings, same as Gibbs. Although Patten never lost a SB. Great signing. Rabach great signing. Please sign Smoot. I just hope that Fred agrees to somewhere close to 10 million then add incentives on to make it a possible 14 million and stays in DC. I'm not surprised by Pierce going to NYG cause we couldn't afford to pay him what they did, however they paid to have the leader of Williams defense. Division rival defensive team leader... If the guy was in a wheelchair it might be advantageous to sign him! Reguardless of what Pierce spills to the enemy (by the way Pierce coulda been a Redskin for life with good money) we can still blitz Manning.

Re: Skins sign Patten

patten is seriously under rated i think, and he was the #1 WR for a while in NE last year and remained consistant whether he got the #1 or #2 CB, so i think he's probably more important than just a #2 WR.. a smurf for sure, but he can play.

Patten Signing

Not alot of talk about this on here??? I think this is a significant addition to the team. Experience and productivity are the bright spots not too mention speed. Good possession receiver for some crossing routes.

What does everyone think?

Re: Patten Signing

this is the 3rd-4th thread, general feeling is its a very very solid pickup, but we're still taking williams if he's available.

realy patten is capable of being a better #1 than a player like S. moss, but he's an excellent #2 and can provide the deep route seperation coles is no longer able to... oh yeah, he can also catch the ball, which is always a plus.

I disagree, we should take the best talent that is there when it is our turn to pick. We have gotten into trouble in the past when we have picked for need.
I have a feeling we will picking a defensive player (LB or CB or SS).

Re: Patten Signing

Why would we draft defense? The obvious need are on offense. Especially a big posession WR. I agree with That Guy, if Mike Williams is still on the board at #9 we would be stupid, dumb, retarded to not draft him.

Re: Patten Signing

maybe we'd consider trading down and considering defense if williams was gone... but if he's there i really can't see us passing him up.

Did you seriously just say that we would draft defense? Whatever your smoking, hook it up. And you even mentioned Strong Safety. What team are you talking about? We have the 3rd best defense, the 27th best offense, and your concerned about building the defense. What a joke.

Re: Patten Signing

Adding Patten to the receiving core was a great pickup. Not only will he provide to be a valuable receiver but also an older guy who has experience winning that can help mentor our young receivers. With all the talk of us taking a WR at #9 this is a great signing

Our starting MLB and leader of our D (Pierce) is gone to Giants. MLB Michael Barrow has a bad wheel, did not play a single down last year and is probably gone as well. Who do have in mind to start at MLB? Monksdown on crack?
If you knew something about football, you would know Williams' system is dependent on having good LB's and CB's, including good backups at LB. People were getting upset on this sight last year with the large amount of LB's & CB's we picked during to offseason last year. Considering all the big injuries we had at LB last year (Arrington & Barrow) Williams ended up being right.

Point 2: When you pick near the top of the first round, you have take the best player available. If it that player is not at a position that will help your team or you feel is not worthy of being picked that high you trade down. If you reach for a certain player because of need (WR) you end up wth a Desmond Howard. IMO Braylon Edwars is the only WR worthy of being a top 9 pick. Williams is a big possesion WR and is not very fastest.
Derek Johnson, if available is a top 5 player who happens to be a LB, a position we need to fill.
We also are thin at CB and SS. The reason I say we are this at SS is our talent at SS is good, but not great.
