Re: Arrington's last stand?

I for one still have a tremendous amount of respect for Arrington. They guy is a stud and our coaching staff should find a way to use him. If he has deficiencies (i.e. freelancing), our coaching staff should be good enough to correct them.

This guy is not T.O.; ultimately he is a team player. He's been with us through thick and thin and people are ready to turn their backs on him on a dime.

Re: Arrington's last stand?

I agree with Ramseyfan. I know L.A. doesn't know when to be quiet at times, but to call him a selfish, me first, T.O. type of player is stupid. He's been here through the good times and the bad times, he's turned around seasons on his own (I.E. that interception return against Carolina that sparked our season turnaround that year), and he's repeatedly said:
He wants to be a Redskin for life
He would consider retiring if he had to play for another organization.

When he was benched, he wasn't bitching about it, he was complimenting his teammates and accepting it.

Re: Arrington's last stand?

I cannot stomach Snyder anymore - he's a grade A as--ole who alienates players and is keeps adding to his reputation as meddlesome and child-like owner. Snyder offered to send Coles a TV to watch football after the contract dispute. Snyder told Arrington not to talk to him when Arrington tried to say hello. Snyder acts like a petulant little 5 year-old and I'm tired of him. Snyder and his gut should stay away from Redskins Park and players.

Precisely.

Another poor measuring stick of LBs is taking one year's stats and extrapolating it out for the next 5 seasons on the presumption that the production will remain consistent. Good god man, have some sense.

Another thing Offiss, check your stats. Ware in his first 15 games has 55 tackles (11 assists), 7 sacks and 1 pass deflection. Arrington in his first 16 games had 55 tackles (11 assists), 4 sacks and 4 pass deflections.

Unless Ware absolutely wreaks havoc this Sunday, his first season stats will be only marginally different than Arrington's.

If you're gonna pick someone to hold up as a comparison, do some research first, or pick somebody better.

Re: Arrington's last stand?

I like Lavar and think the defense is stronger with him in the game, BUT the number one LB is now Marcus Washington!

Gregg Williams is more important to the defense than any of the players. He can be replaced, too. Picking excellent defensive coordinators has been one of the things the Redskins have done right for a very long time.
