Another Possible Trade Scenario.

Before I even start my possible theory, light your torches and gather the angry mob, you have a Daseal to lynch.

Get rid of LaVar. As of now we could get a lot for him and we've been bolstering our depth at Linebacker. Not only could this save us a huge amount in the cap (Canuck might be able to expand furthur) it also would give us a lot of young talent.

LaVar is a great player and I love to watch him play, but he isn't exactly what the Redskins dreamed he would be. He's a great player, but I think somewhat overrated, like Offiss (I think) said. He hit's like a mack truck, but somehow seems to roll off, or he just overpursues. He never turned into the team leader everyone thought he would, and he seems more than reluctant to take that job, our lord and savior, Fred Smoot has taken that job over and is doing it well.

LaVar's trade value would be out of this world right now. We could have an amazing draft and we could bolster the D line without sacrificing anything but one player. I know this won't be popular, and I'm not even sure if I support it (depends on how the contract/NFLPA stuff works out.) But I could definitly see Snyder/Cerratto/Gibbs thinking about it!

Mabye we could bring Health Shuler back and see how he does at LB, so he isnt such a bust.

I dont even now how much we would get for Lavar, we could get somethign good but we thought the same for champ and had to throw in a second round pick to get CP.

Teams rate rookies so much higher these days, even Boston and TO didnt go for much. The only player that seemingly received high compensation was Brunell...because teh skins dont value picks liek the rest of the league

Good point - Skins throw away picks too easily. By the way - I would consider trading LaVar if he's as highly valued by another team as he is by us. I mean look at his monsterous contract! Did he win an NFL MVP award or Super Bowl or something??? His physical talents are bar-none, but he's undisciplined and cannot diagnose plays like elite linebackers do (Ray Lewis, Derrick Brooks, Takeo Spikes, etc . . .), which limits his effectiveness against savy playcalls. For all that speed, why can't he ONCE stop McNabb from scrambling on a key 3rd down??

There is no way the Skins should trade LaVar unless he puts them in a Champ Bailey situation.

It doesn't seem like many people r looking at some of these trades, like the TO and Boston trades, for what they were. The 49ers and Chargers were trying to get rid of players (and their salaries) they didn't want for whatever they could get for them. People should stop saying, well TO and Boston were given up for pretty much nothing. How can you then explain the eagles getting a conditional 2nd round pick for AJ Feeley of all people? Boston and TO are both superior talents compared to Feeley who's a backup to a backup. There's also the complaint about us sending a 3rd rounder to Jacksonville for a player about to be cut. Some players are just more valuable to some teams and sometimes teams just want to get something for a player who's worn out their welcome with the team.

I'd love that cuz right now I know I'd be happy if we get anything for him other than a cap hit. Does anyone know the name of the mlb from Georgia Tech? If we could trade trotter for a good enough pick to get him that would awesome. I remember seeing him around almost every play last year when they showed GT games on the local channel covering ACC games.

Get rid of LaVar.



Whoever agrees with this statement is insane. LaVar is one of the most talented players in the N.F.L. To say that he is overrated is awful....he is our only consistant pro-bowler now that Champ is gone, he changes the the offense-how many plays are ran AT LaVar, he has the ability to take over a game (Dallas 2 years ago), or even arguably turn a season around (Carolina game during Marty's term. He is not even near his potential yet. Since he has been in the league he has never had the same coach twice except for Spurrier who doesn't even count. Anyone who has seen him play at Penn State knows what he can do with a real coach. With someone like Gibbs and Williams there is know telling what he will be able to do. The simple fact that LaVar has stuck with this franchise when he could have easily not signed a contract extention and signed with a team that is an instant contender. He has stated several times that he wants to be a Redskin for his whole career. He has put all his contract issues to the side because he did WILL be one of the greatest Redskins and linebackers ever!!!!

I dunno, if someone gets the name we could look at draft boards to see how high hes ranked and whether he coudl be a day two pick for us.

Still no news on holdman?

I think that enough rumors about us getting rid of our top starters in hopes of replacing them for talent is getting ridicolous. Ramsey, Samuels, Bailey, Gardner, Trotter, Iffy, etc.... We have all this talk about peopel being REDSKINS, yet we keep offering to get rid of our core group of players in hopes of mabye drafting someone good. Anyone else think that we need to stop trying to get rid of people and just add some rookies, and build our team for the first time in years.

Snyder doubled the price of programs, probably just becuase of how often hes going ot have to change the roster.
