The former four-time Pro Bowler still very much intends on playing football, and he’s also generating interest from a couple of teams. Per Wolfson, those teams are the Dallas Cowboys and Washington Commanders.

While the Commanders have “kicked the tires” on a potential move to sign Barr, the Cowboys have seemed like the most interested team overall.
Good to know they are looking at proven veteran LBs. There are options available.

There are quality veteran depth guys out there. I would feel much better about the defense if we picked up vet lb and Collins before camp.

Could be waiting to see how the first couple weeks go, any injuries, etc before making a move. I see depth on defense at LB, possibly CB and Buffalo nickel as still kinda an issue

The thing is I saw reports they said we were going to play more 2 linebackers set... (Sidenote, it's like forgetting to buy sausages and ribs going to a barbecue and go "let's have a vegan barbecue"... Yeah genius like we have a choice...).
So we can still try to hope it's just PR to not sound desperate in negotiations, but it's not like any remaining FA vet is gonna be crazy expensive either...

To me it looks more and more like I was right to freak out since way before the draft and they are not going to sign anybody. Still hope I'm wrong, but I'll allow myself to be in "told you so" mode every time David Mayo takes the field.

Our base D really isn’t 4-3 anyway, it’s been more of a 4-2-5 under JDR

Even if we run 2 LB sets 100% of the time we still have no depth and are PRAYING J. Davis makes a huge leap in year 2.

LB was a weakness last year and we’ve done nothing to address it so I’m assuming it will once again be a weakness

Even if we played 90% 4-2-5, which is not the case, we still need to be able to line a proper 4-3 if teams wanna go run heavy on us.
And like has been said we have zero depth, so zero rotation, and one injury means David Mayo is the QB of your defense.

We'll talk about it again when we're getting gashed up the middle for 60 minutes several weeks in a row.

No doubt we could use more depth at LB. I’m sure they will bring someone in soon.

Jamin Davis balling out would do wonders for this defense. So many talented defensive players didn't live up to their billing last season that need to turn it around. Loads of talent. I expect to see more 5 man fronts also which is why I think they didn't go after more lbs. Hope they do soon. Fully expect the defense to be better. Think the rookies also (Mathis, Butler, Holmes) will help. Butler is supposed to have crazy range. Mathis adds to an already uber talented line.

Surprised nobody talked about the fight song yet.

It doesn't matter what wins - everyone is still gonna sing HTTR anyways.

With that being said both options suck and do nothing but remind me of the Redskins.

Woaw... very inventive... a couple of words changed. Well at least the melody is gonna stay about the same, that's a plus in my book...
But I'm still amazed that after giving zero f*cks about the fans' opinions regarding the name, they are making us vote on emoflags (or whatever that was called) and a couple of words in the fight song ("fight for our commanders" or "leaders on a mission" instead of "braves on the warpath")...
"The choice is yours" "Choose your favorite lyrics"... The whole course has been decided, and just because you can't decide wether to put parmesan or emmental on the pasta you're asking for our opinions and we have to feel like our voices matter ? Joke.

Anyway, to be honest that's way better than what could've been. Our fight song pretty much stays...

Re: 2022 Commanders off season thread part 1

I feel the best thing to do w/ the fight song is to just play it w/out lyrics. To put that stupid ass name Commanders in the fight song really makes me want to vomit. It just ruins everything.

Putting Commanders in that once iconic fight song is like fingernails on a chalk board.

We'll see how running a 4-2 defense works against the teams that can really run the ball. Let's see how it holds up against the Eagles. Let's see how it holds up against Derrick Henry.

Agree. Just hope they know what they are doing with lbs and the Holcombe can handle mlb if they make no other moves. Honestly, don't feel this unit has been addressed sufficiently enough this offseason.
