I'm betting PlayAction is excited about another informative video to watch.

How much does it suck that the wild card games haven't been played yet and we're already talking about how the offense needs to be improved next year?

repost:

Are people really still thinking Big Mike Williams is answer to anything???

My wish list for youngish vet instead of rookie is Kyle Orton

My intriguing "middle age QB looking for new start" Carson Palmer

My Matt Schwab back up to starter option is Matt Flynn

my preferred rookie QB that still has huge upside but no move up/sell the farm deal: Locker

Agree on Locker I think he is going to be a good QB, the dude had a terible offesne this year but was still able to take over games with his feet.

Hey, Mistamoe is gonna trade McNabb to the Cardinals for the equivalent of a second round choice, so I'll bet he can trade Mike Williams to the 49ers for a 4th or a 5th. Mistamoe is a deala.

I watched the Casserly video. Easy to see why he's a TV guy and not a GM. He said it would take several years to fix all the Redskins problems. Several years? Who's got the time to wait that long? Give me a GM who knows how to fix the problems this year. And he doesn't even look good on TV like, say, Lindsay Czarniak.

According to the Sock Puppet Code, you may indeed watch the videos if you so choose.

I'm still waiting for you to turn MC51 into MColeman511 and draft him into the SPG...what's the hold up?

Offense?

Better Offensive line = Better pass efficiency = Better third down efficiency = Better red zone effiency = More points!

This is Business As Usual on RI. Lotta guys start talking about how to draft for the next three years before the season started. End of the season draws new ones into the fray.

I have a strong opinion about this. Always take the best man available. Wanna make something of it?

And that's only when we aren't wringing our hands about our crappy defense, punter, and kicker or speculating about the mental stability, competence, and ethics of our coaching staff, management, and ownership.

We Redskins fans like to cover all of our bases.

Today's Madden GM Poll:

If you've seen them all play, which quarterback is better?

a. Cam Newton

b. Terrelle Pryor

c. Andrew Luck

d. wtf

Moe rolls with D as it seems any one of them would bless our beloved franchise.

Pryor especially intrigues as he's showing a ability to read defenses, be patient, and know when and when not to become a running quarterback.

So let's draft WTF and put him on the field.

That way, when he throws an interception and we shout, "What the F were you thinkin'?" he'll know who we were talking about.

Note to RI staff:

Chances are VERY strong that anything you post up here containing LaVar Arrington speaking (or doing anything other than running back that pick 6 against Carolina in '01 or sacking Troy Aikman for what ended up being the last time) will be outright ignored by anyone who reads this blog on even a semi-regular basis. He's an idiot who likes to hear himself yell and his "perspective" reads more like an overwhelmingly negative bias against the team that paid him far beyond his wildest dreams. Just save yourself the time and stop.

Tennessee resident here.

VY is nothing but a head case. He has talent, and can get the job done, but he cant mentally handle anything. He has mentally blown up several times this season alone. Major immaturity issues. Remember, he taunted his home crowd for booing during the Skins game. Can't imagine that he could last more than 2 weeks in DC with our home crowd...

As stated before, Owner wants VY. Coach, not so much.

Also the inside rumor down here is that last year the Titans/AH trade for a 4th was not serious. HOWEVER, according to what they are saying this year, a 5th for AH IS a possibility.


Just as an idea and not a suggestion, what is the general consensus on Alex Smith? Anyone think a change of scenery might do him well, or is that JC reincarnated? Thoughts?

That about sums up my feelings on the subject of Arrington commentary.

Why would I watch the video when I can watch real football experts on the NFL Network?

There guys are n o different than we are.

Talkin' to a brick wall, brownwood. You've got to wonder whether anyone at the Post is accountable for the way they cover the Redskins. Their beat reporter is a stooge who regularly gets shown up by John Keim. Their Redskins Insider blog is the worst of any of the DC sports teams that they cover. For "opinion" they give us Sally Jenkins, Mike Wise, Tracy Hamilton. And what do they do for an encore? Bring in LaVar Arrington, stats geek, and cap guy. I can't imagine that any of them generates as many hits as would, say, mistamoe, dcsween, or moodleymoodleymoo. Unbelievable.

Talk on the radio up in the north east is how Bill B was able to transform the Pats team on the fly this year, with I think 29 new players from last year, and how the mind set of cutting bait sooner than later with players is the thing to do...case in point with the pats was the trade of Lawrence Maroney a former 1st round pick to the Bronco's, and the option to release Ben Watson, another first round pick...hopefully the same can hold true to this team....

He's such an ass though. Everytime he opens his mouth the state of Ohio collectively winces.

Redskins biggest need: To accept the fact that the team has and currently isn't any good, make a plan, get younger and build a real team.

Oh, and stop the yearly offseason marketing BS that "this will be the year"

Jason: I'm puzzled. It appears that many of the readers are now raving about how this young man "Luck" at Stanford is the best quarterback in the draft, and what the Redskins should do to draft him. If this is in fact true, what was the Heisman Committee thinking when they awarded Cam Newton the Heisman trophy? Perhaps he has the same "endurance and cardiovascular problems" as McNabb, and that is why "Luck" instead of Newton should be selected if he is available when the Redskins select. Please clarify this for me.
