Re: Current 2014 Free Agents

To be honest this is such a horrible free agent year it really is. Last year VJax & Wallace were out there. This year Lafells in the discussion... no way none of these guys have upside to me. I like McCluster for returns and he gets involved of course as well. But thats it. Lets draft a WR and look elsewhere. Unless the deal is just amazing. Edlemen could be ok but hes not the guy for us we dont need a slot we need a compliment to Garcon. A true threat not these WRs.

That definitely doesn't make PFF look good. He struggled with everything last year, bull rush, spin move, swipe move, I can't remember how many times I saw whoever he was supposed to be blocking sitting on top of RG3 on the ground while Polumbus stood there apologetically.

I don't think Oher is worthy of a big deal either, but I also don't know how much I can trust those reports if it says Polumbus was one of the best tackles either.

Polumbus is not a bad run blocker and maybe that helped his PFF grade. But in the passing game, I'm definitely with you. We saw the pocket collapse from the right edge again and again and again. Not sure how PFF missed that.

Re: Current 2014 Free Agents

On the Polumbus grade: did we face a team with two good pass rushers the whole season? Think Justin Houston missed the game against us for Kansas City.

It's not the grade that's wrong on Polumbus, it's the context. That's a fluky schedule of number two pass rushers he played. If he is retained as the starter he will likely struggle again next year.

Re: Current 2014 Free Agents

You could argue that 4/5 o-linemen need to be replaced.

Easily. Montgomery disappointed me as well as Kory. No faith now. Let that kid get destroyed.

That's the type of ish that the Redskins will try to use to justify not addressing the position. I watch every single game and Polumbus sucks.

Re: Current 2014 Free Agents

We need to get maulers on the oline and we need to get alittle attitude in the front seven of the defense. I want to get talented guys no doubt, but like to see a little more fire and guys with maybe a mean streak.

There is a reason that teams like the Pats, Packers, Ravens, Seahawks, Saints, 49ers, and now the Panthers have been successful. They do not panic and sign big name free agents. All those teams draft their own players, develop them, and stay patient even when fans are screaming for them to spend 80 million dollars on a free agent that will magically fix the team. They still sign players, but they wait until they have the leverage. Only exception is a franchise QB. But teams do not let those guys go very often.
Aqib Talib, Danny Amendola, Anquan Boldin, Marshawn Lynch, Darren Sproles, and Ben Grubbs are are all pretty big free agents acquired by some of these teams. You make it sound like people are asking for the team to go after an Albert Haynesworth type player all over again.

We've already drafted a lot of young talented players that we're developing. You know that CORE of players that you don't think makes up the core of our team? That's them. I'm sure we're going to draft a whole bunch of young players again in this year's draft. But I'm sure we can get a decent starter or two through free agency.

After Garcon's success as a free agent acquisition (hey what do you know, a successful free agent signing), I'm willing to put my faith on Bruce Allen to get another impact player (or two) through free agency.

Re: Current 2014 Free Agents

Boldin was last a Free Agent when he signed with the Ravens. He was traded to the 49ers. I remember when Marshawn Lynch was a free agent and no one wanted to give him a shot because he was labeled a "trouble maker" in Buffalo (SMH). Now he is the Seahawks best player on offense.

I have a question for the group... Would you give Richie Incognito a chance here in Washington?

He is a mauler with attitude. He was arguably the Dolphins best interior lineman and a captain before all that ish happened. He will bring the NASTY to the front 5, thoughts?

I also think Kenny Britt can do well under the right coaching staff. He is only 25 has great size and ability. I see him going to the Giants and making an impact. We may be too fragile of a Franchise to turn him around.

Not even if he played for free

FYI - M. Lynch was a mid season trade, not a UFA.
