I am not going to cry over spilled free agency milk anymore but I do think there is to much of a tendancy around here to downplay the contributions of a player after he is gone. Smoot may not have been a top NFL corner but he was very good and still young and improving. And he was also a very good team guy. I think it's definitely time to move on and stop crying about it, but Smoot is a player that will be missed I think.

Re: Moss/Gibbs Press conference.....

But it all comes down to the bigger picture, Smoot was a good player and often would on a play or two during the game would turn in to a great corner...but the Skin's needed to turn around the days of fast players fast cash...it just hurts when it had to come at the expense of Smoot and Peirce, but if they keep doing so over the next couple of years we can shed the stigma of free agency disasters (money wise). And become the Redskins who win as a team. Gibbs is making the hard choices.

and as far as need for the draft? I would like to see the skins trade down and make use of several picks.
If one of the two wide outs are there when we pick then you have to ask yourself are they getting us to the playoffs in 2-3 years...I dont know? I am still a little gun shy at picking that high a wr. i remember Desmond Howard and Westbrook and Gardner who we want out in the worst way.

Re: Moss/Gibbs Press conference.....

The bottom line, from today's press conference:

"Until we win games," Gibbs said. "We will be criticized."

Re: Moss/Gibbs Press conference.....

i would still draft mike williams if he was available at the ninth pick. plus smoot was a second round pick and look where he is now. we could just draft a cb or defensive tackle in the later round. im sure that under williams' system walt harris will excel. he used to be a starter so it's nothing new to him. we need a defensive tackle more than de. instead of upgrading the defensive line we do have a gaping hole at middle linebacker.

Here Here...........I know the Redskins are not even close to the Patriots, but look at the Pats for your model.....how they did not introduce their "star" players but preferred to take the field as a TEAM......you don't necessarily need Super Stars to succeed.....I like it that Joe Gibbs is putting a team together with his "Redskin kinda guys"............

God I hope nobody gets Aligator arms. We used to have a WR in highschool who would get open but couldnt put his arms out.

Very depressing.

Oh, I don't doubt I will miss him and I'm not downplaying his ability. I'm just with you in saying that we have a pretty good replacement and that we shouldn't still be crying over it.
