Re: why not try plax now?

i actually went to school with Plax and he does not have the carachter issues that everyone is talking about...and in regards to the steelers not wanting him back Ben Rothelisberger was very outspoken in wanting him back.. with that said i wouldnt mind having plax (he is from VA and im sure would LOVE to play for the skins) and ramsey would have a reciever that even he couldnt over throw. but he is alot like gardner with the concentration issues and a one year fix would be counter productive to what gibbs is trying to do with the team. i say talk to his agent make a cap friendly long term proposal and if he doesnt like it draft Williams or Williamson with the #9 and if he does then we pretty much get any corner we want in the draft.

No thanks to Plax - he's not our answer.

Re: why not try plax now?

I don't like the idea of signing Plaxico. He is big, yes, but he is basically a deep threat, in the same mold as Moss or Patten, except more expensive. We don't just need a WR, we need a specific type of receiver, that being a big, strong possession style guy. Not Plaxico. Let the Giants blow the rest of their cap on him if they want.

Re: why not try plax now?

I would sign him to an encentive based contract that is long term and would excelerated based on how well he did. I think we have a big shot at him

1 no one is big time going after him
2 he's from VA
3 He's a big target
4 we don't have a true #1 he would have the chance to be that.

Re: why not try plax now?

williams would have a better chance at being a #1 than plax... plax isnt any better than gardner... he drops a lot of balls.

Re: why not try plax now?

I think you have to consider the character issues..........not what Gibbs is trying to do not his type of guy and if character didn't matter we might have CONSIDERED Randy Moss, but the first words out of Gibbs mouth were Redskin are not considering him.......

PLUS he's inconsistent.....as bad as Gardner about dropping balls, and we fans ran Gardner off the team

Re: why not try plax now?

Plaxico is the type of player that we all expect Snyder to sign. Since this has been the offseason of unexpected, I will continue to hope he wont sign.

He might take a one year deal for less just to try and prove he is worth top dollar. That means he would bitch loudly if things werent going his way.

We dont need him. Smurfs 2.0 and a WR in the draft and we'll be fine.

Come on, he ran himself off with inconsistent play. He'd catch a ball that looked uncatchable then drop a ball which hit him in the numbers.

My bad RedskinRat your 100% right.........Gardner dropped the balls and he made himself one of the most hated players on the team.......heeding our good advice, the team concurred with our opinion........

Re: why not try plax now?

I guess if we wanted a big, physical, often inconsistent WR we could just keep Gardner

Re: why not try plax now?

hey yeah that sounds great. and we could release lavar, clinton portis, sean taylor, our offensive line, marcus washington, and countless other's that help and contribute. and we could make mark brunell, michael barrow, chad morton, and all the other backups the starters. no but seriously i don't think we should try and get plax. its starting to sound like another high profile free agent signing that turned out to be a bust.

I agree Matty. Anyone else feel like we need ANY more signings until the draft?

Re: why not try plax now?

Why do people on here feel the need to try to get Law? He was good back in the day, but signing him would be like the signing of Bruce Smith and Deion Sanders. Law is old, much older than people think on top of that he missed most of last season due to injury, when you are older and suffer an injury you are not as likly to bounce back as fast as when you are younger.

Plain and simple Law is too old for us to be giving MILLIONS to. I feel that we signed Harris for a reason, atleast let him have a chance.
