@MistaMoe
Would you like to see McNab or Rex and Why kown that the Redskins averaged 21.3 points per game under Grossman and 17 with McNabb at the helm. So you have the positive side of Grossman's game (more points) and the negative side (more turnovers).

When Cruise and the Danny produce the movie about the history of the Redskins, who will play McNabb?

Director: Cut!

It says in the script you're supposed to fake to the left and then run with the rock.

Flava Flav: Run with the rock?

Mista directa, all I ever did with a rock is smoke it.

Forbes.com featured Haynesworth in a slideshow of the top ten most hated figures in sports today. He landed in between St Louis Cardinals home run king Mark McGwire who was number eight and Cincinnati Bengals prima donna wide receiver Terrell Owens at number six.
I knew Al wasn't popular in the area, but damn I thought the national storylines from the season were long blown over. After all, he didn't play the final four games of the season after Mike Shanahan suspended him for what he described as "simply existing" conduct detrimental to the team. I believed that would have given him time to move out of the spotlight and make way for the Lebron Jameses of the world.
However, James was absent from the list and the Nielsen poll had 46% percent of the voters hating on Washington's $100 million man.

Should the Redskins kick the tires on a Palmer trade?
I, for one, say no. They tried the trading draft picks for a quarterback over 30 who looks to have already played his best football’ thing last year. It didn’t work.
Here’s one last question for Redskins fans to ponder: Is Palmer considerably better than McNabb right now?
If he’s not, it would seem odd to trade for him a season after you benched McNabb twice. (There 2010 stats after 13 games are below. I subtracted Palmer’s numbers from Weeks 14-17 because these are the stats McNabb had posted when he lost his job for good).
PCT. YDS TD INT
McNabb: 58% 3,377 14 15
Palmer: 60% 3,187 21 18

Me neither, but where are our options? There isn't a QB that can start Day 1 in the draft, and take your pick of unemployed/waiver wire AllStars:

Vince Young or Alex Smith.

We'd be better off with Alex Smith and draft a QB in the later rounds and wait till he develops, or wait till next year and get in the Luck sweepstakes. Yeah, we're pretty screwed as far as QB goes, now's the time to build our other positions up, especially Defense.

There isn't a QB that can start Day 1 in the draft,....

The flaw in this line of thinkning is that we are some playoff bound team next year that needs a very capable starter.

Weren't not.

When you're 6-10 after going 4-12 back to back, you can step back abit and give playing time to a young quarterback, can't you?

I say you draft a kid in round two, let him sit until mid season, then ease him on the field.

Then, going into the 2012 season, maybe you have a starter.

Apart from the fact that the previously burned bridge has now been peed on, termite infested, and then bombed into dust, I don't see McNabb as any worse than the veteran leftovers we're picking from to replace him.

We've invested pretty heavily at the QB position over the past 5 years to be starting Rex Grossman, giving Jamarcus Russell a tryout, and talking about burning a #10 pick on another QB.

I wonder if McNabb still talks to his old "friend" in Oakland, and wishes he had gone to the left coast instead?

I've been saying since my time here that I know firsthand that DoveBar Eclairrington smokes so much hippy lettuce, Bob Marley has a tattoo of HIM on his arm.

You assume that his brain has been damaged more than it's always been. Dude is a straight up lug nut. I can't believe anyone pays him to do anything in public except pick up my trash.

I can already hear the 'ginas who say "Ohhh, you'd never say that to his face.

Oh, don't get me wrong, I know we aren't ready to compete. Our defense needs a total overhaul except for Orakpo, Fletch, Hall, and Landry, and our Oline and WR's need upgrades.

However, we shouldn't just get a rookie and start him just for the sake of starting someone. Is Locker ready to lead a team right now? Probably not, so why start a new guy that will struggle and install a lack of confidence in the other teammates and mess up the development of a young WR because he can't get the ball to him. It's not about 'competing now', it's about building for the future.

Getting a rookie in the draft is fine, and I'm a big fan of the old school way of letting him sit and learn like Aaron Rogers did. We'll probably be out of it midseason anyway so he will get a chance to start the second half of the season, but I don't want to get a QB too high and waste a pick on someone that might not be 'the one' and pass on a starter at another position.

I'm thinking use the 4th round pick that we will get for trading Haynesworth or McNabb and see what happens, either way we need upgrades at both starting QB and backup QB.

Right off the bat if we go into the draft and we haven't acquired some more mid round-3-5 picks then that will be a failure by the FO. There is to much potential dead weight on this team to not pick up something for them. Im not talking about early picks, we aint got the kinda bait for that, but im sure we can squeeze a couple mid rounds from other teams. This draft is not that deep with great talent, solid top ten but big drop after that, there will be some great finds in the mid rounds.

I cotton to this logic, which is why I think they should ride the year out with Grossman and pick up a serious RB (fresh legs) to re-establish the running game.

What do you think RI, do the Skins need to re-establish the running game?

Why would the NFL put the Super Bowl in Dallas after the Detroit experiment was deemed a failure on many levels? Weather issues being number one.

Sure, Jerry spent alot of money building this new stadium but, so have 31 other NFL teams. And many in warmer climates with the same stadium capacity.

Could this Super Bowl at Jerry's World be a Goodell quid pro quo Thank You??
