Colt McCoy appears long shot to become a Redskin

Colt McCoy's visit to Redskins Park on Tuesday was overshadowed a bit by Donovan McNabb's arrival, so let's take a couple of minutes to chat about the Texas quarterback.

Whether or not you believe the Redskins are interested in drafting another quarterback , it would seem that McCoy would be the biggest long shot of the bunch to end up in Washington(yes, even less likely that Tim Tebow).

McCoy isn't big enough to wow scouts, and his arm is far from a cannon. His footwork is suspect. He doesn't have the experience under center and has to show he can adjust to a pro style offense.

Recently, one NFL quarterback who says he saw plenty of McCoy in college offered this scouting report:

"He's of course an extremely good college quarterback. I don't know about the NFL. He could be there for a number of years, I don't doubt that. But as far as him being a starting quarterback and being the impact player he was in college, I don't see it. I don't think he has a real strong arm. I think their offense told you that. If you watch their games, 95 percent of their passes were somewhere between the 5-10-yard passing range. He's a real good athlete, but he's not real big. That could hurt him, too."

Shanahan has said he intends to personally scout the draft's top four or five running backs. We know the team has scheduled private workouts with Jimmy Clausen and Sam Bradford. They've invited at least four quarterbacks to visit Redskins Park: Clausen (last week), Bradford (today), McCoy (Monday) and Tebow (this week).

"I think the Iggles didn't want AH for the same reason that they wanted to move out McNabb - they are going younger and cheaper and they want picks."


I saw some statistic where the average age of the starters on their offense is now 24.

That's crazy young.

Hopefully, they have a slow season start we are able to take advantage of.

Question:

The Ravens are interested in a TE in the first rd and have their sights set Gresham and Dickerson.

Would you give up Cooley or Davis for Gaither?

We may have to throw in a conditional pick next year but that would give both teams flexibility with their 1st pick.

My first thought would be no to do it. At the end of the day, the Skins will still need to replace whomever is traded. Just not enough picks to that this year.

I'd keep Cooley and use Davis as a fifth receiver.

That allows you to keep an extra blocking tight end/fullback/scatback type on the roster.

You keep an another receiver on the practice squad and hope no one sees him.

Id vote no on the TE for Gaither.

My thinking he is a RT, and I say sign The Hotel and still get the decade solution at number 4 in Okung.

I keep seeing people suggesting we trade JC to Denver, but the Broncos turned their nose up to Jason last year in favor of Orton. That's one team that would seem to be a non-option.

I think Carolina is the only team that makes sense and they know it. We're not going to get much out of them unless Campbell and his agent can gin up some interest from a few more teams.

He played LT @ Bmore. He's available because Harbaugh is pissed he didn't show up for "voluntary" workouts. They also question his desire to play thru nagging injuries.

He's only 24. This is what KC Joyner had to say about him.

Gaither is near elite status

"Gaither has been a starter for the past two seasons and in that time his metrics have been nothing short of superb. He has allowed only seven total sacks in 27 games and only one of these was a one-on-one sack (defined as when a defender beats a blocker in a one-on-one environment and tackles the quarterback in the pocket within three seconds of the snap). That illustrates Gaither's dominant pass blocking skills, but his run blocking numbers are also quite notable. Gaither was at the Point of Attack (POA) on 300 running plays the past two years and he won his block 255 times, or 85 percent of the time. That is a solid number on its own, but his 2009 POA win rate of 89.0 percent is even more noteworthy. To put that total into perspective, consider that in a typical NFL season, a little less than one out of ten offensive linemen will crack the 90 percent POA win mark. Gaither was on the precipice of that mark last year despite battling injuries."

Denver is set on QBs ... for better or worse, they are going with Orton or Quinn next year.

Bulger would have gone ahead of every UFA QB this year if he had been available. Whatever trigger almost got pulled in trading Campbell just got unpulled when the likely trade partners decided to see what they could negotiate with Bulger. Bulger does not suck.

I believe he took some plays off for his knees last year before the fracture. And that break was freakish.. He was not touched at all..just doing a simple sand-lot type button-hook move.
On the other hand.. other teams who saw the footage of the fracture will be thinking the same.. so you may not get much for him.

Yes and yes.

At 24 years old, Gaither is still really young but he's already a proven commodity at LT - a premiere position.

I like both our TEs, but when you compare a 24-year old proven LT with a talented pass-catching TE, I think it's a no-brainer which is more valuable to your team.

This gives us flexibility at #4 to trade down and recoup picks and still get another tackle a little later in the draft.

In a game of hypothetical, wouldn't you want to trade down should the lions take Okung?

Then who becomes your partner?

I'd say the Titans as he'd see it as he's going home, they get help on their d-line with a known player, and we get value in round 2 or 3.

But otherwise, why move him at all?

brownwood26, the reasons I toss in the safety exchange: (1) I think Haynesworth is a proven disruptor whereas Carriker is not, (2) I think Atogwe is more proven than Landry, and (3) there's been plenty of talking about the disgruntling of Haynesworth by being dangled for a trade, but I figure that Landry must be feeling similarly disgruntled.

My thoughts exactly. Bulger would come cheaper and would instantly become the best #2 QB in the league. I suspect that they really do believe in Matt Moore (and they should) but just need a safety blanket. The thing is that, as it relates to the negotiation with Carolina, Bulger has "hand" because he would want to start (and the Bills would be ready to let him start). The Bills situtation seems only a step better than going to Oakland, the Guantanamo of the NFL. The only hand the Bills have is that they are not Oakland.

Good luck, spelling cop. "Impact" is not a verb but everyone commonly uses it like one to mean the same thing as "cause an adverse impact," so its in common use.

Texting is changing the language. People are starting to use the numeral "4" as a legitimate substitute for the preposition "for." Language, and particularly spelling, is continually becoming simpler ... words like "lite" and "nite" and "ketchup."

Since everyone is throwing out trades they hope for I will toss mine out there. The skins should wait until the lions make the no. 2 pick and then they should send AH and MK12 to detroit for Megatron and a 3rd. Schwartz could have a Suh/Haynesworth at his tackles why the lions get an up and coming receiver and get out from Megatron's (Calvin Johnson) contract. With the skins paying AH's bonus his contact is essentially three years for 16M with 9 guaranteed. That is manageable for any team. After this year Megatron's contract has cap hits of 11M in 2011 and 15M in 2012. If any team knows how to restructure a deal and make it work its the skins.

I always thought 4th was joking with the "irregardless" stuff.

Grammar (or grammer) is boring anyway. Let's rip each other to shreds over politics or religion.

English is a "living" language which means we are creating new vocabulary all the time.

So have at it...

Plan B would be to start posting in Latin (or maybe the pig or op variants thereof).

Back to the Front Office and the big "plan" ... now I'm wondering whether there ever was one, and if there was, whether the whole thing got re-written based on the McNabb thing ... or whether the McNabb thing has been in the works for months (which I'm guessing is a "no" because they don't have a long term deal yet). How do you PLAN to get McNabb? Maybe it was all a contingency or hypothetical that Phily had depending on whether they could get any takers for Vick.

Tangential coffee-inspired thought ... Vick beats out Kolb in camp.

The guy's name is Diesel44. Do you think he even knows the brand? He'll sip on anything that anyone buys him. And when he's paying the buys the generic can that says "BEER".

You still a dumb bama, young...

If Schwartz had Haynesworth, he would even LESS incentive to draft a DT. Disregardless, Lions will be drafting Okung.

This isn't a blog...it's a comment forum, two completely different things. Also bloggers are everywhere - anyone can be one. It doesn't take much to be a blogger. They're not even considered press at most events. Keep trying though...

This is exactly my frustration with the McNabb move.

Yesterday people were killing me for being an "unbeliever" and a "doubter" in McNabb's skills.

My frustration had nothing to do with McNabb himself, but with what this trade means in terms of the direction of the team vis-a-vis a supposed great "plan" that Shallen supposedly had in place for this team.

It just kind of feels like we're (once again) making it up as we go along, grasping for that "one" player that will suddenly put is contention for a championship...

"Bulger is a shadow of his former self.. I would rather have JC than Bulger."


This point alone begs for a thread that's an analysis of possible JC landing spots, and what might the best return for us might be.

Already, we know he might be of value to the raiders, bills, panthers, vikings, rams, and anyone else needing a vet to back up an establish starter.

Is Campbell worth a low 3rd, 4th or 5th rounder?

I'd say a low 3rd is desired, but a 4th rounder more likely.

And as to where?: Campbell would look fine in Carolina fighting with M Moore for a starting spot.

Also, he's an upgrade over T Jackson or S Rosenfels in Minn..

mack1, your god sucks. Mine is better.

League-S, they have generic beer?

I don't drink malt liquor and I don't drink anything that you can get in a 40oz. (Sorry to CRUSH that sterotype).

Sh*t, I don't even drink Hennessy!

New Mexico '01??? Not sure if that's a joke, but that's not me. Don't know where you've been looking. Also MC? Haha nice.

New vocab does happen but proper grammar is still something we should all try to hold up and it doesn't really change much over the years. You won't do very well in a job without it.

At the same time, it's an online comment thing - spelling and grammar mistakes happen. No biggie. More imporantly, lets go enjoy the sunshine and the CAPS kicking butt last night!

Albert burned too many bridges here in Nashville. Punk is the nicest description I've heard used to describe him....After Pacman Jones and Albert, management finally decided that locker room attitude really did matter. No interest in having him back with the Titans.
