I also don't agree that the front office has already tossed in the towel. Even with the cap penalty by bringing back our key free agents they're at least trying to keep the core of the team together, and we'll have a chance to improve with the draft as well. Not making a big splash in free agency isn't necessarily a bad thing.
Not at all. Look where it got us year after year after year with Vinny. Top 10 picks… …which we traded away for more washed up veterans.

Build through the draft. Supplement in FA with guys that are a good team fit, not superstars.

Would rather have the Steelers defense of the 70's. 10 years > 1, even then though, I think most teams would probably have gone 15-1 too, or close to it. Especially in the NFC East.

Those old school defenses couldn't survive the new rule changes. They'd all be suspended by week 3.

Re: London Fletcher leaning towards playing in 2013 (updated)

if you've got a qb, stranger things can happen. If rgiii was healthy, we could have blown by the seahawks. we beat the ravens last year (barely). I mean, if our D is top 16, who knows what happens.

We also went 5-1 in the division and were 1:17 seconds away from being a perfect 6-0 in the division. The Redskins were in every game they played in last yet except the Pittsburgh game. The offense also produced over 400 points, something it hasn't done since 1999. 5 of the Redskins 6 losses were by 7 points or less. The Redskins have drafted well for three years straight(about to be 4 years straight) and this team is almost totally rebuilt. The only reason the Redskins didn't inch further in the playoffs was because of Robert's ailing knee injury. I strongly disagree with your assessment that the Redskins are still far away from competing for a SB championship.
That might be stretching it a bit.

Because of free agency it is impossible to keep a D together like the '70's Steelers. Even the '85 Bears couldn't keep their D together because some team (ahem) poached Wilbur Marshall.

Shanny sounds like expects London to be back. Said, "he's not the type of player you'd approach about about a pay cut."

Maybe the part of what I said about the Redskins being 15-1, but the rest of what I said is pretty accurate.
