Feeling fine about this move

Good special teamer, vet WR, and a positive lockerroom presence and hard worker. Plus he has ties to the DC area (I think he lives here). Sounds like a Gibbs guy to me.

We'll see about trades/picks, etc, but I feel fine about this either way. Gibbs said he was going to bring in Redskin guys, and that he'd make special teams a priority. Again, we should take him at his word.

Plus, and someone mentioned this as a joke, but he knows Reids system inside out. That can't hurt our scouting.

And we know Synder can't say no to Gibbs.

The Warpath coach wants to see you in his office. Bring your hog nose, feather, and "R" Hat....

This is likely the end of Rod Gardner's career as a redskin. I suspect the skins will look to deal him soon.

Look, all of this offseason has been filled with surprises and even more surprises, all of them good. I don't know where this is going, but I put my trust in a proven system. Is that too much to ask? I do not think so. Thrash, Swayne and everyone else has been brought in for a reason. Joe Gibbs knows that reason. The rest of the Redskin's coaching staff knows that reason. We the fan do not know what the reason is as yet, but we should trust. Trust our coach. Trust his staff. Trust the front office. Basically trust everyone involved in the entire operation. We should trust that they know what they are doing. O ye of little faith, the chosen one has returned. Put faith in him. He will deliver.

We'll see what happens. Thrash may never be used as a wide receiver and will probably be a special teamer.

I think Gibbs will keep Gardner,and use him like Brian Mitchel. Gardner does have two (shoudl be three) touchdown passes... I wouldnt be surprised if Gibbs gets him the ball more and lets him air it out. Gibbs has always had a bunch of trick plays.

I love it, who thought you could only do stuff liek this when you are playin Madden. Who hasnt signed players just to trade them in the game before?!? I think Snyder is a hardcore Madden fan and uses that as a basis to run his team...

I'm with Daseal man...we definitely should give Cloman a shot! The guys a beast, and at 6' 3" 215 pounds of muscle..he's tough, maybe not as fast as the speedsters we have, but can catch anything thrown to him..(unlike Russell)..oh yeah, why is Russell still in Washington???

He'll get a chance under Gibbs, everyone will have their chance to prove themselves to him. I trust Gibbs will keep and play the best players for his system.

why?

Whatever happened to trying to build a team through the draft? I think we need to get some foundational players through the draft instead of bringing in recycled players via trades (a la James Thrash).

First of all, I never thought Thrash should have left Washington and I'm estatic to have him back. As for Gardener, I didn't hear anything about him from anyone during mini camp but I'm under the impression he practiced. Maybe that means Gibbs was not impressed with his film and futher disliked Gardener for not making plays in mini camp. In previous drafts teams have tried to trade for Gardener and I know the Redskins were offered a low first for him.

OaklandSkinz;

You wanted to know why Russell is still in Washington.

Two words: Raw ... speed.

He has bad hands - I mean really bad hands - but he can flat-out fly. And so the coaching staff wants to be sure that they can't teach him how to catch a football reliably before they let him go.

My guess is that the coaches will eventually give up on him because he has had bad hands in college and in his developmental years in the NFL. But these are new coaches; and if they see the speed he brings to the line of scrimmage, they have to want to keep him around to see if they can work a bit of "magic" with him.

He might just be the fastest man in the NFL; if not, he is in the top 5!

Patrick Johnson was just as fast if not faster, but was never utilized for his speed. Of course I cant coutn how many times I saw Johnson be the first to hit a guy on special teams because of how fast he got down the field. Perhaps Russel could be a great special teamer for us.

thrash is a hard working player with a lot of heart for the game. He is the tipical over achiever and self less player that Coach Gibbs loves he will be a good addition to the New Redskins he is not a super star wr that thanks of only him self ( T.O. and Keyshawn Johnson and others) i say the coach is still the man even when it comes to being the gm!!!

Thrash should make a excellent 3rd or 4th receiver, we'll really be able to spead out defenses when they hvae to watch out for all our receivers
