Re: Practice Squad

So I like to look at things from a distance because it helps promote perspective and context. And one thing that's really apparent to me is that the roster looks a heck of a lot better than it did at this time last year. The Redskins have improved a lot in the last 365 days.

They've also done a lot more winning than they've done in the recent past, but for the early part of the Shanahan era, we were very talent deficient. The first two drafts haven't produced a ton of depth. Although the last two...have produced a lot of depth. And now, we're a deep-ish team. Maybe not the deepest in the NFL, but as deep as anyone in the NFC East.

That's always been the standard by which you measure yourselves, and now I think it's safe to start comparing the Redskins to other top teams in the conference. We're keeping different company these days (our roster doesn't look out of place next to Green Bay's roster or New York's roster, to give two examples), and that feels good.

G,
I must say, I find your endorsements of the Redskins and the Shanahan's to be completely disturbing, causing a ripple in my B&G Cosmos.
Most puzzling.....
Nice post

Perhaps to the rest of us. For Tripp, it was more of a cathartic cleansing exercise.

Care to join Hog1 and I for a glass of kool-aid Gtripp?

Re: Practice Squad

Fasten your seat belts. We are going to kick ass this year. Even Tripp says so in his own way.

I agree completely, I'm very excited about this year and really the next 10 years if RG3 stays healthy.

BUT - ironically, the roster is almost the SAME as last year, as in - 22 of 23 starters from last year. Just our outlook has changed after their impressive run. But your point is well taken, our depth / rookies look much better in Amerson, Rambo, B.Jenkins, C.Thompson, etc and I'm ready for the season to start..

Re: Practice Squad

I was pretty shocked that we didn't take anyone from any other rosters. And it didn't even seem like we wanted to.

Jamison I think is the guy to really watch out for out of the group. I've long been a Nick Williams fan, but I don't think his ceiling is super high

Re: Practice Squad

Speaking of Welker and SD, I wonder how much input AJ Smith had in this draft?

Not the same. Welker put up serious numbers at Texas Tech. He may have been little know to the average fan, but not to most scouts. Williams didn't produce at that level in college

I don't think much. He was hired more so to to advise on the team's current players

It sure helped Welker to have Brady throwing the ball to him.

I'd love to see Nick Williams enjoy the kind of career Welker has. And I've watched Williams for a few years and am definitely a fan. But I think it's an unfair expectation at this point. He's a "Wes Welker" like player. But I don't expect Welker like results

Re: Practice Squad

Are the skins paying players like Minnifield extra (like Compton last year) to prevent him from being poached easily by other teams?
