Rob Jackson is a better candidate IMO, assuming Rak is retained.

Sounds like you don't expect London to be on the roster?

Rob Jackson, inside? Doubt that

Not to evade the question, but I honestly think he's 50-50 right now

I know Jackson inside seems weird. But he's bigger than Robinson by quite a bit, undoubtedly will be a better run stopper, and already showed impressive football IQ all around. Also gotta think Jackson's a starter in this league somewhere. Can't say the same of Robinson. His highlight for the 2012 season was getting plastered by Dez Bryant lol.

Do you think London wants to still play? Any insight on what the team is willing to pay him?

Don't know about London

As for Robinson, why are you so quick to dismiss him?

Didn't see the flashes others saw. Really, the only play where he stood out was trying to tackle Bryant near the sideline and Bryant literally shoulder slamming Robinson to the ground.

And now he's coming off an injury. I mean, seems like a longshot to contribute NOW. And if London goes, we need somebody to contribute now and do it at a very high level or the defense will suffer.

Re: A question for all Redskins fans.....

If Rak is back and we retain Jackson, wouldn't it be good to get both guys on the field at the same time?

I like the sound of Rak, Jackson, Riley and Kerrigan. Would still prefer London of course. He was elite (again) by the end of the season and seems to be as much the brains of the defense as Haslett given what was reported about London taking a bigger role halfway through, just when the defense improved.

I actually wouldn't trust Haslett without London, if that makes sense.

So is your issue that Keenan needs more experience or that you've already seen enough that he's just not going to be a good player?

He's a developmental player/project is all. Not a guy any franchise should expect to contribute now.

What was his injury again?

Re: A question for all Redskins fans.....

I don't remember. I think you tend to lean toward playing veterans-Gaffney, Ochocinco, etc-until their legs fall off. But at some point you have to let the young guys get on the field and gain experience

The Orakpo-like torn pec injury.

We're going in circles, as usual.

Never mind.

I agree completely. This is not the team we've suffered for so long.

Great things are going to happen from here on.

It's a good point. Though my beef with the Gaffney vs Garcon discussion was about value, and it was before the info on Gaffney's off-field thing was public. (I figure the FO knew about it, and made the right decision)

Do you think Robinson has a higher ceiling than Jackson? This year? Next year?

Can we truly compare Lawrence Taylor to Ray Lewis? Lawrence Taylor never played inside linebacker and Ray Lewis never played outside linebacker. But Rob Jackson has proven to be the better and more valuable player between he and Robinson. Keenan Robinson will improve with time. He was just a rookie this season.

Maybe I'm wrong, but wondering if RG3 gets hurt is like wondering if the sun will come up tomorrow.
