Bradford talks about his visit with Redskins

The NFL's top draft prospects are on the ground in New York City, and this morning in Central Park they met with some members of the media.

Among other things, Oklahoma quarterback Sam Bradford discussed his visit with the Redskins and the possibility of playing for Washington.

Obviously, to get him, the Redskins would have to move up to No. 1 and would have to be okay with committing around $50 million to a quarterback who might not play for a couple of more years. Will it happen?

The NFL Network's Mike Mayock was also on hand this morning and he said Thursday might bring "the most movement we've seen in 10 years in the first round of the draft. I think people are going to be all over the place."

But that doesn't necessarily include the Redskins, he said.

"They don't have a whole lot of ammunition obviously except for that fourth pick," said Mayock. "They've got [Albert] Haynesworth, and they're creative. The way I look at it as it's a lot simpler than that. I look at it, okay, they've got McNabb, who is not as old as
people think. I think he's got three or four years left in him. They've got a solid defense, they've got a running attack and because of what Shanahan does, it'll be a better running attack. They need a left tackle. I happen to think Trent Williams fits what they do better than Russell Okung. But they're both very good football players. I think they stay put at four."

The Rooneys trade a Superbowl MVP, and who quite honestly is a good reciever who like Ben has never been convicted, for a 5th round pick because he smokes weed.

If the Rooneys were soooo self-righteous, you'd think they'd settle for a late 1st rounder for Ben.

Unless of course...nah

I haven't been this excited about a new coach since Spurrier's "Fun-n-Gun" was going to help us light up the scoreboard... actually, I was pretty excited about the return of Joe Gibbs, too. Gibbs had us headed in the right direction.... But I have to admit, I got pretty Zorny when I thought our defense was stacked, and Zorn was going to coach up JC17 and all those young wideouts.

Today, I just know confident Shanahan will restore our running game and McNabb will rescue our passing game! Won't they?

re tough schedule:
it's because of the tough divisions we play non-divisional games against. i believe the divisions are chosen on a rotating basis. you'll see our schedule is rated as "easier" than philly, dallas and the giants.

-------------------------------

To my knowledge, NFL scheduling ignores strength, relying on a rotating division system which - this year - pits NFC East teams vs NFC North and AFC South teams. All teams in those divisions will face all teams in the NFC East.

There are a couple of stragglers in there that I can never figure out, but they certainly aren't contributing to our strength of schedule (Bucs & Rams).

Last year's record only has an impact on two games for next season. This is how the schedule is made:

Every year the Skins play the NFC East teams twice - 6 games (3home/3away)

Every year they play all the teams in another NFC division on a rotating basis - 4 games (2home/2away)(this year NFC North)

Every year they play all the teams in an AFC division on a rotating basis - 4 games (2home/2away)(this year the AFC South)

Every year they play teams from the remaining NFC divisions that finished in the same position that Skins did. Last year the Skins finished last in NFC East, so they play the last place finishers of the NFC West and South - This year that is the Rams and Bucs respectively. (1home/1away)

I understand it was pre-ordained that we were playing the NFC East obviously and the AFC South. But getting MN and GB two playoff teams on top of having to already play Indy, Philly twice, and Dallas twice for a team that went 4-12 seems pretty harsh to me. But anyway here's my way too early prediction.

Week 1: Dallas W
Week 2: Houston W
Week 3: at St. Louis W
Week 4: at Philadelphia W
Week 5: Green Bay L
Week 6: Indianapolis L
Week 7: at Chicago L
Week 8: at Detroit W
Week 9: BYE
Week 10: Philadelphia W
Week 11: at Tennessee L
Week 12: Minnesota L
Week 13: at NY Giants L
Week 14: Tampa Bay W
Week 15: at Dallas L
Week 16: at Jacksonville W
Week 17: NY Giants W

9-7, Wild Card

IMO the Eagles are now the worst team in our division, then the Giants (their defense got old fast and so did Jacobs), then us, then Dallas. All of this assumes the drafting of a LT tomorrow.

I wouldn't want us to trade up. But if he is there at 4, we should take him. Let him learn under a Pro Bowl/future HOF'er QB, and future HOF coach in Mike Shanny and in 3 or so years start him. Kyle Shanahan may be HC by then While papa Shanny takes over as GM/VP.

If I could make an observation about the teams you mentioned above (Bucs & Rams).. we all finished at the bottom of our divisions in the NFC. I think that may have something to do with it, because it seems like we have played the Bucs the past 4-5 years.

Posted by: KingJoffeJoffer | April 21, 2010 2:50 PM | Report abuse

zjfr2-

Well you start off playing 6 games vrs the beast, which would make any schedule harder. You then move along and we got stuck playing the AFC South this year, which is also another strong division, Colts, Jaguars, Titans, and Texans, all are fairly decent teams. We also got stuck playing the NFC North, which has the Vikings, Packers, Bears and Lions... again another tough division.

Right there that is 11 games vrs teams that finished .500 or above (not sure if the Jags did or didn't, while the Bears and Lions were both under .500). Our other 2 games come from the bottom of the NFC West and the NFC South, which happen to be the Rams and the Bucs.

Thus, simply because the way the schedule is made, play 1 entire division from the AFC, 1 from the NFC along with your own division, we got a tough draw.

The Skins will be competitive. Other than the OL and RB, this team has talent. Shanahan's coaching will make a huge difference in how we execute ... and we won't be outcoached on game day.

However, the schedule is unusually tough, ven for a last place team. The NFC East goes against the next strongest NFC division and the strongest AFC division. Unlikely to see a wild card from the NFC East.

Posted by: zcezcest1 | April 21, 2010 3:01 PM | Report abuse

I think by definition, any team with a 2009 record better than 4-12 is a stronger team than ours... and frankly, that was most of them... save three. So based on relative power ratings, we'll naturally have a tougher schedule than most. Now with the 2010 schedule, it looks like it should be about a 6-10 season -- give or take one.

Posted by: Vic1 | April 21, 2010 3:03 PM | Report abuse

If I'm StL and I don't have Bradford under contract, I'm trading the pick (1st choice) or grabbing someone else (2nd choice). Too big a $$$ risk. Plus, they obviously have other needs to address.

Dallas - no worse than last year
Houston - worse than last year
St. Louis - better than last year
Philadelphia - worse than last year
Green Bay - same as last year
Indianapolis - same as last year
Chicago - better than last year
Detroit - better than last year
Tennessee - worse than last year
Minnesota - worse than last year
NY Giants - same as last year
Tampa Bay - better than last year
Jacksonville - worse than last year

I make all of these predictions without knowing (1) who they will draft, (2) which key players will be injured, and (3) which free agents they will pick up between now and the end of next season.

With that knowledge base, combined with how little there is to know about the Skins, much less how Skins might match up against their opponents ... and knowing that the line btwn worst and first is razor thin (determined in large part by injuries and officiating), and knowing that every team has 53 guys who have full time jobs to play professional football ... my prediction for the Skins is SUPERBOWL VICTORY ... either than or the first pick in next year's draft.

Unregardless, power rankings = predicting win-loss records now = even talking about "strength of schedule" in any context other than after-the-fact.

With this schedule, I'll be happy with 6-10/ 7-9, sadly. This team does have talent, and with a real coach and a better scheme we'll be a lot more competitive, however we just play so many talented teams to see anything better for us. We'll be in close games but i just don't see us pulling them out this year.

We are still at or near the bottom of the east. No way we go 0-6 again, but 3-3 would be miraculous... more likely 2-4. Looking at the NFC North, both the Vikes and Pack will probably get us, but we should pull off wins vrs the Bears and the Lions. AFC South... maybe, maybe we'll beat the Jags, maybe? But outside of that I don't see a victory.

So right there were looking at, say we beat the Jags, 5 wins, 9 losses. I think we can get the Bucs and the Rams, thus finishing us off with a 7-9 record. Improvement and something to build off. Remember, no matter what anyone says this is a rebuilding year so, I'll take 3 more wins and a 2-4 division record in stride.

Might be harsh, but its probably the truth. We have a long way to go before we become good again, even with Mcnabb and Shanny.

Posted by: dcsween | April 21, 2010 3:08 PM

I was thinking about this….Dallas hasn’t really made any moves yet this year have they? Other than cutting a few guys, including a starter at tackle and free safety. Maybe they have picked someone up and I just didn’t hear about it or forgot, but it seems to me that they have done literally nothing thus far to get better. I guess they are going to rely on the draft. And you make a good point about not knowing who will be injured….Dallas had zero injuries last year (other than a few minor ones) and if I remember correctly went into the playoffs with literally every starter healthy. I know they might be able to make some good moves in the draft and “get younger”, but there is no way they get as lucky as they did last year. Plus, I don’t think I have heard anything about them cutting Suisham yet (hee-hee!)……an injury here or there like what happens to most other teams could really fubar their season. I guess my point is that everyone is as usual penciling them in to win the NFC east, but I wouldn’t count on it. At least I am hoping……

Jacksonville seems committed to David Garrard (error) and doesn't seem to have been helping him out with receiver help. Suspect secondary, suspect defensive line.

Houston is changing the offensive playbook. Philly outperformed its talent last year and that was WITH McNabb and Westbrook. Kolb will require at least 6-7 games to shakeout the willies. Winston Justice. Nuff said. Indianapolis is a steady high performer built for steady high performance for as a long as Peyton is upright. [Same thing with New England, who underperformed its talent level last year.]

In the NFC East, you have to see the iggles as weaken, the jints confused, the skins, an unknown.

Winston Justice. Nuff said. Indianapolis is a steady high performer built for steady high performance for as a long as Peyton is upright. [Same thing with New England, who underperformed its talent level last year.]

Houston had major problems at RB last year, not sure why. Its not lack of talent (Slaton fumbled a lot, but that is curable). Schaub and Andre are just getting started, Mario Williams is entering his prime. That's why I think Houston isn't dropping.

Tennessee was 8-2 with Young at QB, so I guess the question is, are the worse than the 8-2 finish or worse than the 8-8 team that started 0-6.

Not sure about Jax, though they did have 1 WR who showed something last year.

As for philly, westbrook wasn't much of a factor. maclin, djax, celek, mccoy are all 25 or younger. Losing Donovan hurts, but that was a pretty young team in a lot of areas.

I got news for you guys predicting 9-7, 10-6... Just remember predictions this time last year: 'The Oline is good enough, we expect to make the playoffs on the strength of good defense and a strong running game'. Even with Okung or Williams, everything from the Center-Right is a question mark.

And like 2008, a decent line in camp and 8 games into the season means jack squat!

I actually mostly agree with you Moe…..same system, same core players, etc. They SHOULD only get better, but if they keep suisham on the team you can pencil in him causing a loss or two, and they only won a wildcard game with a completely healthy roster. When they met up with most “good teams” last year they didn’t look quite as mighty (except maybe against the Saints, who were in a rut; heck the skins almost beat them the week before), and again, they had NO injuries of any sort of concern. I’m just not gonna a crown them yet…..but if they can get Romo under control by helping him eliminating some of his dumass decisions, they could be really scary. Romo is a Parcells type coach away from becoming elite. Wade Phillips and Jason Garret are not the type of guys to put their foot up his arse.

Spoken like a azzhole republican! Yea right, violence solves everything, you phukin moron.

Nevermind the big sh!t talking Blount was spewing before the game. Let's all lose our cool and just start swinging blows in front of parents and children.

Cause I'm sure there weren't any derogative remarks made to blount about his race.

now when he almost went into the stands that was the problem not him punching some redneck who probably deserved it.

Its interesting what is done to punish violence from sport to sport. remember earlier this year when britny griner punched a girl in game. She only got one game. Or in baseball someone can throw a ball 90 mph at someones head and only miss one game. Yet blount lost millions due to lost draft position for his incident.

I am not condoning what he did just think he was punished more than others especially when $ is factored in.
