As for MLB in a perfect world, I would like to see Marshall start the year and McCunes groomed to eventually take over. That's assuming McCunes is as good as we all hope he is.
We can't afford to take the cap hit this year. We only have about $2 million in cap room, and cutting Barrow now would eat up another $0.3 million in room this year. Given that we still need to sign our rookies, and Rod Gardner seems to be staying, cutting him now is not an option. We would have done it already if it were an option. They're forced to wait until June 1.

You hit the nail right on the head, uhohjimoh. I have no doubt that the new guys will be good players. Still, I'm concerned that the team's decision to suddenly cry "fiscal responsibility" and let Pierce go will prove to be perhaps the most imprudent move of this off-season. No matter what type of players the new guys become, it seems unrealistic to expect them to fill Pierce's shoes in the mental aspects that uhohjimoh identified.

Re: Bye Bye Barrow?

I like the Skins are stocking up all these candidates at middle linebacker. I wanted Pierce to stay like most but why pay him the money after one year? Maybe Lemar is the next Pierce. Even if there is a rotation in the middle, we've been down the road all having 3 high priced LB's....

I wouldn't be upset if Barrow was cut. Williams could turn a stadium hot dog vendor into a stud LB.

Re: Bye Bye Barrow?

I can't be upset over a player I haven't seen play for us yet...I agree with Daseal...might as well throw in the new guys and build our future at LB.

Re: Bye Bye Barrow?

lemar deserves to start the season at middle linebacker. especially after the way he stepped up when lavar went down. i think lemar will do a fine job, and he could be a starter for us for years to come. i don't get why we can't release all these players before june 1st, though. what is so important about that day.

That's the cutoff date for signing-bonus allocations. It's complicated, but basically if you cut them before June 1, the unallocated portion of the signing bonus hits the cap that year. If you cut them after June 1, the unallocated portion of the signing bonus hits the following year, thereby delaying the cap hit.

Re: Bye Bye Barrow?

I don't know, this kid Newberry doesn't look to promising, Williams likes speed at LB, and this kid runs a 4.72 not that fast, especially when we keep hearing that he is fast, he look's a little awkward as well.

Re: Bye Bye Barrow?

I too, would like to see Lemar starting this year. Again, we were ranked in the top three minus Arrington, Daniels, Bowen AND we have a great CB coming in. I'd love to see someone like McCune become even better than Marshall, but right now Marshall has earned the job.

Re: Bye Bye Barrow?

I think Barrow should just retire. If he played this year, and got shots all the time, hes risking the rest of his life. He had a great carrer. No sense trying to prove somethign to skins fans and come out for one year, prevent us from giving our new guys a shot, and then have a worse limp for the rest of your life

Re: Bye Bye Barrow?

yeah. that is true. barrow has had a great career, so why not retire now? we respect him and all he's done for the nfl, but he has to move on.

Re: Bye Bye Barrow?

the one knock against Lemar filling in at MLB is that there's questions about whether he's got enough bulk. I don't know if he's bulked up any since last year but I wouldn't be suprised to see a big mix of Marshall and Mccune if Barrow isn't able to go until either one stands out from the other or an injury occurs.
