Hmmm....at this rate we're going to have to score 31 points a game minimum to be able to compete.

He could be converted to free safety since he's better at tackling than coverage:

No problem. If we add two more offensive playmakers, we probably will.

Besides, since Roger Goodell is so determined to turn the NFL into a flag football league, every team will be scoring 30 points per game in the near future.

Re: Official Redskins Off-Season News & Rumors-Part Trois

I'm all for taking the best player available, but is WR really that big of a need?

Re: Official Redskins Off-Season News & Rumors-Part Trois

I don't understand that move considering the dire state of our safety positions. Since Hankerson is disappointing and Moss is aging, I can understand the addition of another WR, but in the 2nd-round? Griffin will have plenty of targets between Garcon, Morgan, Moss, Hankerson, Robinson, Davis, Paulsen and hopefully Helu out of the backfield.

Is there internal concern about Garcon this year?


Shanahan loves the smokescreens so I'm leaning towards that. I don't know what benefit a smokescreen would have for a team with no 1st-Round pick but that's what I am hoping for.

We need a playmaker in the secondary and an upgrade at RT wouldn't hurt either.

Swope would be a nice addition IMO.

Re: Official Redskins Off-Season News & Rumors-Part Trois

I just dont know high id be on a move to have Jammer or D Hall as the starting FS this year. That would be a fail imo and would expect worse play out of that position this year than last (if thats possible).

Hate to say it, but much rather have Tanard Jackson at free safety than those two finished players.

Absolutely.. Maybe not looking at the next 16 games but Morgan and Moss's contract expires at the end of the season, Robinson (to date) hasn't shown himself to be a consistent option. Hankerson is developing but so far inconsistent. Thinking long term, we've got Garcon and nothing. You have to support your QB with weapons.

I have been trying to say this for years. Give your Oline some shotguns and you wont have to worry about your QB getting sacked.

On a serious note. Given this type of draft, I am wondering if it isnt better to go with less needed positions early. There will probably be a run on DB's fairly early. And round 2 through round 4 or 5 rated safeties, at least, arent that dramatically different. Some teams may overlook some positions to get in on the run of DB's. We can still find decent ones in the middle rounds, but may be able to get some good talent that others passed on just because they werent a DB that a team had to get now instead of waiting.

Also with the glut of DB's that will go in this draft, there is a very good chance that come time for training camp cuts, there could be some good veteran DB's getting cut and looking at minimum contracts for one year just to have a job. Im not convinced that if we dont draft DB's in rounds 2, 3, and 4, that it will be complete doom and gloom for our secondary. Not that I want to go this route, but we can probably upgrade the safety position 5 days before the season starts and have much better safety play than we had last year.

Re: Official Redskins Off-Season News & Rumors-Part Trois

Between Leonard Hankerson and Aldrick Robinson, I don't see any better prospects than them to be drafted in the 3rd round or later. That doesn't mean someone may become a better pro or that Hankerson or Robinson have reached their peak. Also, I don't believe there's a high success rate converting CBs to Ss whether they're veterans or rookies.

Re: Official Redskins Off-Season News & Rumors-Part Trois

Yeah, if we can get Jammer and put him at FS and Meriweather is healthy at SS, that's very encouraging.

We still need more depth. I'm not counting on Tanard Jackson at all. If he gets on the field, bonus...or with Meriweather's health, insurance.

That would be my guess.

Hankerson NEEDS to step his game up this year. He took a step in the right direction last year, but he had issues with consistency. Has to hold on to the ball more. Aldrick on the other hand there are a few prospects that could be drafted in the third or later who are "better."

I like Boyce and Swope.

Boyce played with RGIII in H.S.
