Re: Who will the Redskins miss the most?

I think we can survive all 3. But based on depth concerns I'd say Smoot.

I think Springs/Harris/Wilds can handle the job. I just worry about an injury. If Springs went down I wouldn't feel so safe back there anymore.

Re: Who will the Redskins miss the most?

If our WR's can cut out the drops, Coles will be an afterthought. He had a 9.5 YPC last year (though that isn't entirely his fault), and we can get that from anyone.

Harris is a better tackler than Smoot, and though I will miss his presence, I'm not convinced we have downgraded dramatically at the position.

Since we have no idea who will play MLB this year (either a rehabbed Barrow or a converted Marshall) I have concerns there. Hopefully we won't miss any of them, but Pierce is the most likely.

One thing to keep in mind is that we were a 6-10 team. How much can we miss anyone if we aren't any better than that?

Re: Who will the Redskins miss the most?

I voted for pierce since he made sure after the play was called that everyone on the d was in their appropriate places, but if there had been a none of the above selection that would have been my choice. the coaching staff had reasons other than cap hits to not go overboard with their offers to pierce or smoot and I think that speaks volumes in my mind over their proclaimed worth to our defense. coles will be missed because he was the most consistent passing option we had last year other than cooley, but he lost all of his value to the team by asking out no matter how he did it.

but like I said, none of the above would be choice if available because I think we can upgrade each of them with less money than what it would have taken to keep them.

Re: Who will the Redskins miss the most?

It's easy to hate him now but you don't replace 172 catches and 2,154 yards in 2 seasons so easily.

Re: Who will the Redskins miss the most?

I didn't hate his production, I just hated the way he handled this situation. I hate it LESS because of the details that we found out about the story being blown open by the WP.

Re: Who will the Redskins miss the most?

I am not sure we will miss anyone of them more than another. I think it will be more evident in the CB position. However, I think that we have made a very good decision NOT to sign overly expensive players...ala...Eagles with the first Trotter situaiton. Or the Pats with Malloy or the other CB.

We need to protect the QB and the QB to play adequate. We are run oriented and that will keep our Defense off the field.

I can't imagine that we will miss any of them!

Re: Who will the Redskins miss the most?

This is how I see it... we will miss them until we have other players step in for them just like last year.

Re: Who will the Redskins miss the most?

I'm suprised that the who's more important Pierce/Smoot discussions were overwhelming for Pierce, now that they're both gone Smoot has a slight edge.

Re: Who will the Redskins miss the most?

i put smoot because antonio pierce was a product of the system, and lemar marshall will be too. smoot is a better corner than walt harris, and while walt harris probably will be a solid #2 corner, smoot is younger than him. l.c. was a good receiver, but him and moss are probably the same in terms of skill. moss and patten will do fine next year, but if you put in an option for none matt, i would've chosen none because we have players that will step up in their absence, and do the job just fine.

Re: Who will the Redskins miss the most?

The term miss indicates that there are posotive emotions given to someone. I dont think the redskins (team, fans, otherwise) will truly miss any one of these. Thats a term reserved for someone who can be hurt by another's absence, and i feel that the absence of a member of an organization whose beliefs are not fitting with the organization cannot hurt that organization. On winning teams players are willing to fire agents and take paycuts to stay with a team... on losing teams players want out of hefty contracts. There was something special about the gibbs teams of the past that other (winning) teams in the league have right now.... Pride... and it will be restored to washington.

I don't recall all of this 'love' for Champ. Maybe Stephen Davis though. Let it go guys.
I'd have to say Pierce although I am confident Williams can groom someone to take his place. Hope its Marshall. I agree with you on Smoot BossHog........I think Springs was the outstanding one in the secondary. Smoot did get burned on some big plays. Smoot reminds me of a young Deion.....'nuff said............

Thrash is a Gibbs kinda guy......may not have much speed, but hard working and tough.......

AND DON'T EVEN SAY THE NAME OF THAT WR THAT WENT TO THE JETS!!!!
