People need to realize we need both the draft & FA, for awhile then we SUCKED at both.

No, I think guys are defending not using FA because A. We have made bad moves in the past (Vinny, Dan S) and B. We can't really participate.

Me personally, I am pretty upset that we are not able to add a couple of quality players as is the FO if you listen to their press conferences.

I don't understand why people are using the draft vs FA arguement. You are right you need to be good at both.

Yes, I think Redskins fans are just traumatized by bad personnel decisions before Shanahan and Allen got here.

Before Shanahan and Allen, they overpaid and overvalued with money, trades, and draft choices in both the draft and free agency.

That's why Shanahan turned the Redskins team upside down.

Build your core through the draft. You can add free agents for depth but it should not be the center of your team. Like trying to build around Haynesworth, Asomugha, or Archuleta usually does not end up well. What the skins should do in my opinion is wait and see whos available after the frenzy. I guarantee there will be players that will be available and will be cheap. Maybe Winfield will be one, heck even Hall might come back for a million dollars instead of the 8 million that was owed to him.

Make the right moves in free agency by getting cheap signings, and then build your team with 7-8 starters on both sides of the ball that were drafted by you.

Look at the "winners" in free agency the past couple of years... how many of won superbowls? Even made the playoffs?

The Eagles?
The Bucs?
The Bills?

Why not just follow what other great teams do, I want the Redskins to win superbowls, not to win free agents.

The draft is probably the most important way to build a team but the team that proved that they were the best had a good amount of Super Bowl players that made the biggest plays -that were signed through free agency.

And re-signing your own free agents is part of free agency. Please. You can't take that out of the discussion to help your argument.
Yes I can... Tom Brady has never been an NFL free agent... Ever... He is not considered a FA signing by the Pats, he is considered a Pats draft pick. I very seriously doubt that RG3 will ever hit FA either. The only reason Peyton Manning hit it was because Peyton Manning #2 was available to be drafted by the team that owned the rights to Peyton Manning #1. Excuse the pun, but Indy had a nice bit of Luck with how that fell into place.

I have also told you how much I value FA. I value it as a supplemental thing to help build the team. Nothing more than that. I personally do not believe that not being able to sign everyone we want in FA to be a curse.

Honestly, if Vinny were still in charge, I would drive to NY and thank Mara personally for forcing us to concentrate on the draft.

As you have said yourself, SB teams have a handful of free agents. Handful usually means a few but not many. So that sounds right to me. Built through the draft primarily and supplemented with FA.

Personally I like the Garcon argument. Too much money and he could be replaced. HOWEVER, this isn't the summer to make any noise. Let's remain slow and methodical and try and salvage the season despite having no money. Worst case scenario we go into next summer with a 24/25 year old pro bowl quarterback and 30+ million in cap space.

EDIT: Actually it isn't worst case scenario, it's guaranteed.

An automatic $18 mil in cap space in 2014, and hopefully a HEALTHY pro bowl QB. I hope Mike Shanahan gets an extension too, based on what he's done in building this team so far.

Need to be careful about saying an automatic 18 mil in cap space next year. We have already pushed some money back to next year and taken up some of that, but yes we should definitely be in better shape.

Didn't read but your first statement. And let say again - Please. Tell that to the damn Ravens.

Garçon can be replaced? With who? I think this shows your football IQ. Who was a big part of the season ending redskins streak? Without him the Redskins probably lose at least one or two of those games and don't make it to the playoffs.

I just can't believe these 2 recent statements:
1) Re-signing free agents aren't considered a part of free agency.
2) Garçon can be replaced.

which I can add to someone's statement earlier in the week: he didn't say -will. He said- will be able to. I can't even begin to address how wrong these statements are. I just stare at them and just shake my head for like 5 minutes.

Tell the damn Ravens what? That they won the SB with Ed Reed, Ray Lewis, Joe Flacco, Torrey Smith, Hiloti Ngata, ect. Ozzie Newsome is one of the GM's who looks to draft first and add free agents second. That statement does not mean that Ozzie would never sign a free agent. No one has ever said signing zero free agents is the best way to build a team. How Ozzie does it is EXACTLY how I think it should be done. Build with the draft and supplement with FA.

Since the Super Bowl is such a huge argument for you. In the last 13 Super Bowls, 12 of the MVP's have been drafted by their respective team. The only one not to was Drew Brees.

That the idea of re-signing your own free agents is not a part of free agency. And like I said before- I only read your first statement. All that other stuff is mumbo jumbo.
