i love a good punter, feagles was the man last year but id take a guy who can punt a dead ball inside the 10 over a boomer any day.

Re: 2009 Free Agents

I see a lot of people wanting the Skins to sign Jordan Gross but wouldn't the Panthers:

1.) Try and resign him to a long term contract before he hits the open market?

2.) If the Pantehrs can't agree to a contract extension wouldn't they just use the Franchise Tag on him?

Maybe because this is Julius Peppers contract year also.

I'm sure they can sign them both since the salary cap will go to $123 million.

Re: 2009 Free Agents

No, this isn't Vinny or Danny. Those guys don't listen or post. He he he
My only thoughts on free agency are this: Don't blow a lot of money and get guys that can start. Cross and Lechler can start. Yeah Cassel is a far shot. My point was he can start, can Colt?
I like B Mitch's man up policy. If you can't practice you can't play. If Campbell or Portis go down who's up? I hear Charlie Batch is available? He's better than Colt and has a lot of experience. He's got a few more years in the tank then TC and can play until Colt's ready if JC should get hurt. Does he play the WCO? No, but neither can half of this team or we'd be in the play-offs.

Lechler is definetly an upgrade over plac. and when were pinned within our own 20 and punt youll see why. SLs a placement guy as well.

Re: 2009 Free Agents

I think the only P/K free agents worth mentioning are Mike Nugent and Lechler. I wonder if the team would try to sign either one of these players. Nugent was a decent kicker, injuries just got in the way. I hope we get a solid kicker.

They franchised him last year and he has said he wants to try the open market.

Gross is the only FA pickup I'd want.

Rypper - unless they agreed in the one year contract extension that the Panthers would not place the franchise tag on him this year I thought the Panthers have this option. does anyone know if this was a stipulation in the one year extension Gross signed ladt year?

Re: 2009 Free Agents

I have a bad feeling that we are not smart enough to sign Lechler. Punter is not a sexxy enough position to get Snyderatto's free agency dollars. I really hope I am wrong...

Re: 2009 Free Agents

I'm really starting to think that Haynesworth or Peppers will be a Redskin. One of them is about to get PAID big time by Snyder

I personally think picking up one of these studs would put our good defense over the top and give us an elite defense. The question is which would you guys prefer?? Both around the same age Peppers 28 and Hayneworth 27

I would say Peppers...he had a down year last year, but has bounced nicely. Unlike Haynesworth, I think Peppers has been a bit under the radar, and I do like the fact that Peppers has been pretty consistent (save for last year), unlike Haynesworth. Both Carter and Taylor are in their 30s, and having Peppers along with Taylor or Carter would give us some time to develop a young DE (hopefully through the draft).

I still think that we need a better DT, however I think Haynesworth has higher risk of becoming a bust than Peppers; furthermore, there are a few character issues with Haynesworth.
