Re: #26 Landon Collins

Tell him where he's playing or sit him if he refuses. If Curl can play better, what do you lose over 11 remaining games where the situation is salvageable rather than keeping LC in purely because of how much he's paid? Assuming you can't trade LC ($) how much damage can you do by benching him the rest of the year? We're 2-4 with a tough stretch coming up, not 4-2. If they don't try new stuff soon, to turn this around, it will be too late to make it worth bothering.

Re: #26 Landon Collins

Blackmon in Indy is out all year with torn Achilles. Wonder if they can ship Collins and do a cap deal that helps Indy out? I doubt it, but no harm in wishful thinking...

But still, even at LB you have to cover sometimes
Just bumping my original post since it seems nobody is seeing it

As of now, Collins is still listed as the team's starting strong safety. Yet, in Washington's Week 6 loss to the Chiefs, Collins played in an almost exclusively hybrid linebacker role -- one where he lined up near the line of scrimmage -- with Curl and McCain playing the two traditional safety positions.

Re: #26 Landon Collins

I asked Landon why he cares so much about being labeled a safety as opposed to a defender/linebacker/whatever other term.

Landon: "Because I was drafted as a what?"
Me: "Safety"
Landon: "I went to high school and I went to college as a... safety right? OK"

It's because he sees it as a demotion, like he's not good enough to play safety anymore.

Maybe if he just embraced it like when some corners make the change to safety late in their careers, it could be a very good thing for him.

Re: #26 Landon Collins

You were drafted as a good football player. You are now a bad football player.

Re: #26 Landon Collins

I also find it hard to believe he's really 110% back from the injury. That injury can usually take 2 years to come all the way back from.

With a bit of luck he will keep opening his big mouth enough for Ron to have enough and cut his sorry ass ?

Re: #26 Landon Collins

Yeah it doesn't look like he is willing to accept the LB role, in fact he mentioned it in the off season too when he said "I'm a safety not a linebacker"

Re: #26 Landon Collins

This is also the difference in losing teams / culture and winning ones.

Jamal Adams plays LB and S and never bitches about it. That is because Pete Carroll has created a winning , all about the team culture.

CeeDee Lamb recently said " I don't care who gets the ball the most, as long as we win"

Stephon Diggs has said the same stuff.

You never hear that stuff in D.C.

Re: #26 Landon Collins

Are we overreacting here just a bit? He said he'll do it.

Landon Collins doesn't like new LB role but is willing to play it

"I'm a team player," Collins said. "Do I like playing down there? I'm good at it. If I'm good at it, I'll play there. If I need to be played there, cool. Other than that, do I like playing linebacker? No. No I don't. I don't like hitting big linemen, getting big linemen off me. I'm undersized for being a linebacker. So yeah, I don't want to play down there, but if need to, yeah, I'll do so. I'm good at it."

Re: #26 Landon Collins

He needs to be benched. He should not be on the football field. Opposing QB's look for #26 and exploit that weakness. Why put a player that is that bad on the field?
I don't care what he has to say about it. Frankly I am not sure why he is being forced onto us? Did Bruce Allen give the Landon Collins the pictures of Dan Snyder before Bruce left? I don't want to see #26 on the field anymore. It is time for him to go. The salary cap hit is the only reason he is still on them team.

Re: #26 Landon Collins

I think William Jackson has been worse than Collins. At least Collins can fill another role at LB and be serviceable. Jackson, as much as I really liked the signing when it happened, has been the worst player on the field in my opinion, and there's no where else for him to go except the bench.

Collins has been worse. Also it remains to be seen if Collins can be a serviceable linebacker. Plus I dont think Jackson is getting paid what Collins is. I hope he isnít.
Jackson sucks too, donít get me wrong.
