I'm not saying that every player has to be a difference-maker. Those teams had big-name guys like Charles Mann, Darrell Green, Art Monk, Joe Jacoby, Wilber Marshall etc. and there are many I'm not naming. The fact that some of the critical players were no-names is undeniable, especially when you consider their performances in the Super Bowls, but what is also undeniable is that a lot of marquee guys played big roles in carrying those teams through the season and the playoffs. I'm just saying, its crucial to have as many guys as possible who can truly change a game.

What about Clinton Portis, Santana Moss, Chris Samuels, Jon Jansen, Randy Thomas, Cornelius Griffin, Marcus Washington, LaVar Arrington, Shawn Springs and Sean Taylor? That seems like a pretty good number of difference makers and marquee names for one team.

The critical difference between this team and those Super Bowl teams of the previous Gibbs era: a little nuisance called the salary cap. Free agency. Kind of hard to keep a roster full of marquee names and difference makers intact anymore.

As far as the teams you mentioned in your previous post, the Pats aren't the only team that exercises fiscal responsibility (God, I'm already sick of that term!) successfully. In fact, some of the contenders you mentioned-- the Eagles, the Steelers, the Chargers-- have all been cited over the past few years as teams that spend frugally and are willing to let their own free agents leave when they price themselves out of the team's cap budget. They are teams that draft well, and successfully promote from within-- both things the Skins have generally struggled to do. The Eagles spent a little more than usual last season-- buying T.O. and Kearse-- but only after letting three of their difference makers (Staley, Vincent and Taylor) roam to greener pastures.

If you look at the Colts and Falcons, how many difference makers or marquee names can you name on those teams' defenses? The Colts: Dwight Freeney? The Falcons: Patrick Kerney, Rod Coleman, Keith Brooking, DeAngelo Hall. Those teams spend most of their money on the offensive side of the ball. The Colts have more playmakers on offense than virtually any team in the league, but even they are struggling to keep that core intact. Pollard's almost been signed away, and the Colts are looking trade away the franchise-tagged James.

I actually agree with most of what you said, and I believe the Skins will in fact trade down from #9 and possibly pick up a second rounder. They might be able to garner an additional 3rd rounder in a Gardner trade, so that would give them some solid, quality picks with which to improve in various areas, rather than gambling on an expensive top-10 pick at receiver.

I see the Skins being very active on draft day, trying to maneuver (both down and up) into position to get the guys they've targeted to improve in areas of need and poor depth. While I think Mike Williams or Braylon Edwards could certainly improve the wide receiver situation, I think the Skins are wary of handing out a big signing bonus to a player at a position that has historically been a huge gamble in terms of bang for first-round buck.

I agree Drew and Joe! Do the names Gardner, Westbrook, and whatshisname from UMich mean anything when it comes to drafting WRs in the first round?

Ah yes. Old whathisname. I was going to get his jersey, but "whatshisname" didn't fit.

Desmond Howard.

See the problem there is this. That guy cannot replace Antonio Perice right away; Perice's biggest asset was his smarts, not his actual physcal play. So bringing in a rookie; while he would be much better as far as talent than say Lamar Marshal, cant be the feild general. I think Marshal, having experiance in the system; can do a good job of that. Plus he has two of the better linebackers in the game on each side of him. I tihnk were gonna be good with Marshal. We need a difference maker offensivley, that is our major problem. I really like Mike Williams because he is a very physical, talented reciver. When you look at our reciving crops, it has talent, but is going to be very finnesee. The only guy who is "physical" in any form (mainly size) is McCants, but who knows whats going on with him. I honestly would like to move up and take Mike Williams. I think he can have a bigger impact than anyone else we could draft.

Re: And the Washington Redskins select....

Only a super bowl MVP? He ran back a punt to beat the Patriots when he played for Green Bay. We may call him a bust but he's a heisman winner and a super bowl MVP - looks awful nice on paper.

Re: And the Washington Redskins select....

Howard turned in pretty decent career on special teams.

Yeah I know a top pick is supposed to be more than just a great special teamer, but at least he found a niche and wasn't a complete bust.

And yeah that Super Bowl MVP counts for something.

Yeah, my brother kind of enlightened me to that fact after I posted that. (He's a Bucs' fan)
