Re: Official Redskins Free Agency Thread 2013 Part II

We've seen time and again that putting a high priced FA into a different system may bite you in the a$$. I had a feeling that CB's were different, because cover skills should translate to different systems -> but Nnamdi is a recent example where it can backfire.

However, it is enticing to see a secondary that includes: Winfield, Wilson, Hall, Biggers, with a healthy Merriweather and sober Jackson backing them up. Then a couple of draft picks and vets.. There'd still be big issues, but last year we scored 27 ppg (#4) and gave up 24ppg (#22) -- any defensive improvement from last year could keep us contenders for the playoffs and a lucky streak would get us into the SuperBowl.


I'd hate to see Winfield go to Seattle. If they keep their team together, it looks like we're going to have to go through them for the next decade to get to the SuperBowl.

A healthy Griffin and we win that game 38-21 or something. Seattle can be beaten.

Seattle doesn't scare me.

Besides Seattle is going to have to go through us I they want to make a Superbowl. The NFC goes through SF for the time being.

Re: Official Redskins Free Agency Thread 2013 Part II

If we have to play Seattle every year to get to the Super Bowl...I'll take that. In fact I relish the thought.

Same here. I would enjoy us destroying the Seahawks every year.

Re: Official Redskins Free Agency Thread 2013 Part II

Does anyone know Chris Nields health status? Is he still even on the roster?

We certainly owe them. They've beaten us the last three times we've met in the playoffs.

If we beat them once on the way to a Superbowl win, I'd consider us even. They got no rings after beating us.

Again, Eric Winston is on the market at a reasonable price and we don't make an effort to grab him... Honestly, what did he do to Kyle?

I think we have about 600k left in salary cap.

Does Eric Winston come off as an arrogant prick to anyone else but me?

Until Winfield makes up his mind we are kind of in limbo.

It's not a difficult fix in the least. It requires a restructure or two
