Re: Official Redskins Free Agency Thread 2013 Part II

“The greatest happiness is to vanquish your enemies, to chase them before you, to rob them of their wealth, to see those dear to them bathed in tears, to clasp to your bosom their wives and daughters.” G Khan

It's how I feel about the possible collapse of the NFC East, then the NFL, before the mighty RGIII-lead burgundy and gold army.

It's 'our' time. We can be like the Niners during their heyday when their divisional competition was practically non-existent, allowing them to ease into the post-season year after year.

Dynasty.

And the Eagles have a joke of a coach and no quarterback to speak of. The Giants already seemed to be on the decline and lost a number of key players.

The skins are poised to dominate the division for years to come.

I think it will still come down to the Giants and Redskins. But I love what has happened in recent years with the Skins.

Re: Official Redskins Free Agency Thread 2013 Part II

I'm so glad Fred Davis is back. I'm just wondering. Did anyone else feel like he was going to be a bigger weapon in the offense w/ RGIII as QB than he really was before he got hurt? I felt like he could be a top 5 TE, but we was doing about as good as he was with Grossman at QB. With Grossman, I remembered Davis being underthrown on a number of occasions where he was wide open down the field. With the upgrade at QB, I was dying to see those plays be TDs, but it just didn't happen. Maybe, it was because he didn't play as much with Pierre on the field too, so DEFs keyed on him more? I'm glad he's back on a prove it deal, and I hope he does. Let's lock up Antoinne now!

I think this FO has done a great job of allowing our guys the ability to test the market but also letting them feel engaged and respected by the skins.

Its just nice knowing that our team is run professionally and competently.
Exactly...it's a respect factor and a good way to do business. That wasn't the case around here for a long time. Although I have not agreed with some things Shanahan has done, at least we are now a professionally run NFL franchise.

Im so glad we are done with the whole Snyderatto train wreck that we dealt with for so long. Would much rather talk about the state of RG3's knee instead of the idiotic signings that we made and winning the offseason but nothing else.

Aside from the first 2 games, Fred was a beast before he got hurt. He wasn't making many plays down the field or in the redzone but he was a first down machine for us. True, without having Garcon on the field it was hard to truly see what impact he could have being matched up only on a LB but the potential is unreal.

Think about it from a defensive coordinator standpoint.. You have to account for a 1,600 yard back in Morris, a potential game breaking WR in Garcon, chain movers in Morgan and Hankerson AND a big, fast TE in Davis.. Oh, BTW there's that QB with 67% accuracy, a cannon for an arm who just still may run faster than most of the players on your defense..

I'm lovin it.

Nonsense. Urlacher isn't the QB of that defense and can't hold a candle to Fletcher today.

If we're serious about being a competitive team in 2013 Fletcher has to be on the roster/field.

The Bills organization could help itself by moving the team to a dome in Toronto.

Re: Official Redskins Free Agency Thread 2013 Part II

we've retained 21 of 22 starters on a playoff team that showed dramatic improvement in the 2nd half of the season. Our only loss was a mediocre starting cornerback. we've added some cheap depth, resigned our core guys, and the draft hasnt even happened yet. Despite the cap penalty, its hard for me not to be optomistic about our chances entering the 2013 season.

Re: Official Redskins Free Agency Thread 2013 Part II

I expect the Skins to sign Winfield. That's because I don't think he would have stayed in the D.C. area this long (even though his agent has been sick) unless he had a strong interest in playing for the Skins.

I agree with those who think he would be a very good short term solution at CB.

[QUOTE=The Goat;1000911]Nonsense. Urlacher isn't the QB of that defense and can't hold a candle to Fletcher today.

Exactly. Fletcher is playing out of his mind and Urlacher is a shadow of his former self.

Re: Official Redskins Free Agency Thread 2013 Part II

Really like this off-season so far. If we manage to somehow pick up a solid corner I would be very pleased.

I'm not sure if anyone else has brought this up, but does anyone else feel that the salary cap penalty the last two years was kind of a blessing in disguise? I mean it forced us to get fiscally responsible, kept us from over spending on high priced free agents and made us focus on building through the draft. The free agents we have picked up are more to solidify and add depth to our team as opposed to making a huge free agency splash.
