ESPN's redskins offseason overview

http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/column...=2078813&num=3

i skipped the overview of philadelphia and dallas. it's at the bottom of the page. it's okay depending on how you view it. It says we have the best o-line in the division.

Yeah, it's not too bad. I can live with that.

Re: ESPN's redskins offseason overview

The article claims this is a "do or die year" for the skins becuase our contracts were loaded to give us a "two year window" to win the SB. I just do not believe that. Didn't we restructure Arrington Jansen, and Samuels? And didn't we move Coles in a way that takes all the cap hit this season? Do we really implode in 2006? Maybe I don't get the cap structure at all (very likely--Canuck? Help?!?), but this isn't correct I think.

It was a very balanced article, overall. And from ESPN, no less!

Re: ESPN's redskins offseason overview

The article says there is guarantee that Gibbs will want to coach beyond this season?

I still don't understand where thinking like this is coming from.

Gibbs has said he's committed to 5 years, personally that's all I need from him. All these speculations about him jetting after just a season or two is really ridiculous.

Re: ESPN's redskins offseason overview

From a pure talent standpoint, it's hard to argue that we don't have a very talented offensive line.

Whether that talent equates to production is another story.

Exactly. Gibbs might stretch truths or "fabricate" to the media just to help out the organization but all-in-all the man TELLS the truth.

He'll be here for the time he promised.

Re: ESPN's redskins offseason overview

I may have missed some things, but never have I heard say anything that made me believe he was building a team to win immediately. he has always maintained "building for the future", "long term", "a Redskin team built to win for years to come", etc. Additionally, who in the hell (besides a knucklehead journalist) thinks this is a "make it or barake it year"? I have waited since Gibbs last tour for a winning team!!!!!!!!!!!!

Re: ESPN's redskins offseason overview

I'm also one of the guys who believes that it's won in the trenches. With our additions and returning players, this will translate into more yards for Portis and more yards for Ramsey.

Re: ESPN's redskins offseason overview

Before Jansen went down last year we werent concerned at all about our O-line. With a healthy Jansen last year, we would have been weak at center with an offensive line just getting geared up for lots of guard and center pulling.

That was their first season with that run heavy system. So now we have Mr. reliable back(Jansen). Chris Samuels is still well, well above average, and would start on any team. Randy Thomas is a serious bad ass in my ignorant opinion. Dockery is about average, if not a little less. Dockery is an enigma to me at this point. This will be a good year to gauge his progress. Casey Rabach is versatile, which is always helpfull when it seems like we lose on average one starting o-lineman a year. He needs to step up his level of play this year if he ever wants a shot at the big deal one day.

And this is the second year in this run system. Which definitely doesnt guarantee success, but it supports it.

"The Best In the NFC East?" ----I dont know, maybe. It's early.

"Most improved" ----- there should be no doubt.

We have depth this year.

I also believe that we have the most talented o-line but it remain to be seen will they walk the walk. the key will be can cp be patient and the holes open for him instead of him blasting pass our lineman. the switch to zone blocking will also help cp break those game-breaking runs during the games. with that said will might be a fun season to be a redskin fan.as long as we resolve that sean taylor saga.

"The addition of Casey Rabach gives the Redskins the most talented offensive line in the division"

The hogs are back..........err dirtbags. Yep it all starts in the trenches. Hopefully our line can now help Ramsey, the receiving corp, and Portis.

Re: ESPN's redskins offseason overview

Dockery isn't that bad. His first year, he was thrown in there as a rookie. For a 3rd rounder he did an OK job IMO. Last year he was decent (I think he was hurt at some point too). This year he'll take a few steps forward as he has a few years under his belt and great coaching staff. If he gets hurt you better believe it will be bad news.

I think that with our athletes back and being signed (Jansen and Rabach), Portis won't have to wait as long giving him more yards with those horses running in front of him.
