I think the Redskins are going to let him go hoping they can find the kind of big receiver Shanahan would like to pair up with Armstrong. I can't see Malcolm Kelly panning out, so they must be geared up to grab a big receiver through free agency or trade.

Moss having a very decent year is more a product of all of our other receivers sucking major rhinoceros dick and out TE's having to block more than they normally did.

All that said, dude can ball, still. Make a run at him but don't feel the need to pay him like a #1 WR.

When your team goes 4-12 and 6-10 in consecutive years, there isn't even one player anyone should fall in love with. I never bought into the 'nice guy' theory when considering keeping or letting go of a player.

As Alec Baldwin said in the best 7 minutes of acting he's ever done in Glengary Glennross, "Nice guy? I don't give a sh*t........Go home and play with your kids."

It wasn't pretty. I got lucky that day, it was his turn to control the butt hole!!! Sorry PA, I know it brings back bad memories!

"How much should the Redskins pay to keep him for the next season?"

Zero.

They should look at younger, faster players who can actually catch the ball and not complain to the media about losing.

If things remain as is through summer, does Donovan McNabb once again host "Hell Week" in July?

... or does Sexy Rexy host "Heck Week"?

And if Moss gets re-signed, does he attend?

How about Malcolm Kelly, whose Hell Week participation last year landed him on season-ending IR?

Posted by: Alan4 | February 9, 2011 11:30 AM | Report abuse

3 yrs 5 million + some incentives. He's the only real receiver we got. Let's face facts. Our Wrs are terrible. We can resign Moss, Gat a big FA like Braylon Edwards, and still have room for Malcolm Kelly, Anthony Armstrong, and Terrence Austin. We'd just be cutting Roydell Williams and possibly someone else IF Malcolm Kelly comes back in one piece and makes it through camp and the preseason. We could easily roll 6 deep at WR until Kelly's hamstring breaks again.

From our day late, dollar short department:

Re: Santana Moss probably note being re-signed to play for the redskins next year

Let's reconsider:

Cardinals Steve Breaston (27)
- Packers James Jones (26)
- Texans Jacoby Jones (26)
- Jaguars Mike Sims-Walker (26)
- Vikings Sidney Rice (24)
- Giants Steve Smith (25)
- Jets Braylon Edwards (27)
- Jets Santonio Holmes (26)
- Chargers Malcom Floyd (29)
- Chargers Vincent Jackson (28)
- Rams Mark Clayton (28)

Again: rather than handing Holmes-Edwards-Jackson-Rice a pile of money, I'd rather bring in two receiver with the following attributes:

--good down field blocking

--excellent running ability after the catch

--clutch hands

--6' 1", 200-215 range

Speed isn't as important as the ability to read coverages on the run.

I like the 'spread' approach with decent--not great--receivers who catch the ball and get great YAC.

Don't forget we still have Mike Furrey. Sorry, that made me laugh. I'm for dumping all of the seasoned vets and starting over with Banks, Austin, Armstrong and a few other players to be gathered through free agent signings. Assuming Kelly hasn't been free basing HGH in the offseason, I really can't see him factoring into the equation.

Steve Smith

James Jones

Jacoby Jones

Are my WR targets.

4 second tier receivers can better than 1 dominate beast wr, IMO.

I'm for that also.

Getting rid of Moss is just dumb. I know we need to get younger and know when it's time to let a player go, but that only applies if we are stacked a little deeper at that position, which we are not, and if we only have a few spots to fill on the team, which we don't, most of the team needs an upgrade.

Keeping Moss would mean we wouldn't have to address WR in the draft and we'd only need to come up with 1 FA WR, which still needs to be a #1 caliber reciever. He's got 2 more good years left in him anyway, and by then we should be closer to where we want to be, so get rid of him then.

SAVE THE HGH USERS!!!!

We already have a JJ, and an AA, BB, CC, DD, GG, LL.

We have several more letters of the alphabet to fill...especially since we'll lose a DD...so Smith will fit in nicely.

Moe, agree with the sentiment of what you're saying...but James Jones? The more I see this guy play the more he looks like Rod Gardner. He drops A LOT of passes...I mean A LOT. He dropped a couple in the SB and dropped a wide open, sure TD in the playoff game against the Eagles that would have iced the game before halftime. If you're looking for "clutch hands", James Jones doesn't have 'em.

Now, Jacoby Jones for depth? That's the ticket.

It was supposed to be Furrey in the slot. Damned if we didn't see Moss in the slot!

Posted by: Alan4 | February 9, 2011 12:07 PM | Report abuse

Moss should stay. Move him to the slot -- a move that should have been made at least two seasons ago anyway.


If the 'skins do draft Newton, 4th will be up here every damn day gassin' up his dudes:

Newton
MK12

For all the people that said that IR'ing MK12 was sensible, I hope all of you are right.

I doubt it if he makes it to week 9 healthy. Wouldn't be surprised if he's on IR again by that time with the new darling, Ryan Torain. Both have showed that due to chronic health issues that they can't be depended on to hold for an entire season, or at least for a substantial period of time. Why would you put all your stock in those guys at the WR and RB is beyond me.

Hope they're scouring the hell out of the FA and UDFA pools and exploring all draft options regarding gaining more picks.

If I remember correctly he was supposed to give us some depth at safety...but he wanted to be a receiver on a team already stacked at WR...then he bonked his head and it didn't matter anyway.

(self-post)

...like the 'spread' approach with decent--not great--receivers who catch the ball and get great YAC.

Why?

One thing evident in the packers' approach going all the way back to the loss they suffered at FEDEX Field was that blitz heavy 3-4 defenses are vulnerable to spread formations and quick passing.

And the redskins face the AFC East and some good 3-4 defenses.

Perhaps K Shanahan should re-tool his offense to fit what works rather than casting aside quarterbacks who can't make it work.

In response to Moe's Netflix update, I feel compelled to go on record as saying 'The American' is one of the worst movies I've ever seen. 'Dinner for Schmucks' was terrible as well IMO. Inception? I'm lukewarm, it was ambitious, you have to give it that.

I've gone off the reservation and am viewing the entire first 4 seasons of Dexter right now, averaging 3 a night, so I have no movie reviews to counter with, but Dexter is awesome- If you have not seen it you're missing out.

Also, has anyone read Reid's first column? I thought it was hilarious, but not in a good way (For him). He managed to do the impossible: Make the reader almost sympathize with Snyder...but the humor lies in that he was not trying to do that at all. It was just a ham handed attempt at taking a shot at a nearly dead horse a week late and $10 short.

The other comical thing is that he thought the City paper lawsuit was such breaking news and so important almost a week after it broke that he just had to write about it- even though the guy he replaced (Wilbon) told him to avoid Redskins topics for at least a month.

Well done Mayor! Keep up the shortsighted mediocrity!

Dexter rules. It takes some pretty talented writing and acting to get people to sympathize with and actually root for a serial killer.

Probably should have asked does Mike Furrey even matter.

Saw he made "best of the rest" on the NFLN's Top 10 Versatile Players. He led the league in receptions a few years back too.


But still, who is Mike Furrey? Can he have any meaningful role on the Redskins?

PAskinsfan17 beeps.

I personally would love to have Moss back but at the right price. I just think at 32 you can not give him any kind of long term or big money contract, so I think in the end he will be gone. Here are my bets for next year at WR. Armstrong (5-11) takes over Santana's slot role. We will definitely sign Jacoby Jones (6'2),he's one of Shanny Jr's guys, to take one of the other top three spots. The last of the top 3 slots we pick up with our second round pick, probably someone like the kid Hankerson (6'2)from Miami.

It is time to let Tana go. Whatever he's worth, let another team pay it next year.

The Skins got Santana from the Jets years ago, ask yourself if Santana would be a starter with his old team today? the answer is a resounding no! there lies his worth. Too short too slow.

We should use our 3rd and 4th round picks on wide receivers.
