Redskins Fans Waiting for Something to Be Angry About

The Redskins are preparing for the draft, and for the first time in a while, very few can (justifiably) argue with how the team is going about things.

It's easy to tell that nothing exciting (or appalling) is happening because the conversation has been at a standstill for quite some time. Here, see what I mean:

pstate11: The Skins best chance on draft day is for Cerrato to stay home and sleep in. A proven loser with zero ability to win. I don't want to hear anything about the Niners of old. He had the best QB in history. Campbell is no where near that QB and never will be.

Yawn. Okay, so Vinny Cerrato is a "loser" and Jason Campbell is a bust. Someone, tell us something we haven't heard.

Ah, here we go. An argument about Carlos Rogers. Slow news day, indeed.

DannyH8r: I think the team's done pretty well overall in recent drafts. I'm not sure who gets the credit for that, or, if you disagree, the blame. It'll be on Vinny this year. So far Carlos Rogers isn't looking like a high 1st rounder, but he's also far from a bust. We've yet to find out about Campbell.
alex35332: . . . no Rogers was not a bust, but as a team can play 4 corners on the field at a time, the standards for being a bust at CB is far lower then for a QB.
zap123: Alex-please dont tell me you just wrote that carlos rodgers was not a bust? HA H AH AH AH AH AHA AH AHA !!!

Ha! HA! (But seriously, why is that so funny? Rogers hasn't been awful, unless tearing an ACL makes a player a bust.)

alex35332: No I said that there is more leeway for Rogers then Campbell. Rogers could never make a pro-bowl and play in the league for 10-12 years as a nickel. Campbell either will be a starter or will go the way of Ramsey. Read for Comprehension

"Read for Comprehension." I like that. You can do it, zap.

For those of us who got through Alex's comment the first time without incident (high five!), it's an interesting point, though I beg to differ.

Alex says, "as a team can play 4 corners on the field at a time, the standards for being a bust at CB is far lower then for a QB"

In my humble opinion, the standards are just as high at any position. And clearly, the Redskins have suffered in recent seasons at both defensive back and quarterback, so anyone coming in at either position should feel the heat.

What does everyone else think?

(Don't worry; next Saturday is almost here, and then back to the regularly scheduled outrage. I can't wait.)
