Sellers on Offense's Struggles

Jason La Canfora reports:

Fullback Mike Sellers is holding court with the media and the state of the offense again is the major topic of the day. He has no solution to the recent stagnation.

"If I had the answer, I'd be a rich man," Sellers said, adding that he thinks the problems go well beyond any one individual. "We've all got to get through this together," he said. "Its not about one guy."

He doesn't consider himself a rich man?

Compared to the Locker Room, maybe not.
Compared to recent graduates of Walla Walla Comm. College, though, I believe he is wealthy indeed.

There are too many problems to name but it starts and ends up front. Wilbon was right with the talking points statement when he said we cant beat physical teams cuz we dont have physical lines plain nd simple, maybe Vinny should draft some lineman come draft time, just a though Vinny

When Richardson didn't make the team, I figured that Torrence had the leg up experience-wise. Richardson had a tremendous preseason. When Richardson got picked up last week (the week before), I figured that Tryon better be F#&$ing good next year, because otherwise I'd be doing extra offseason conditioning on my vocal chords in preparation for the a Vinny blast off.

Redskins needs to compete for SB next year and beyond.

1st - As stated mulitple times this week, OL Tackles, particularly RT.

2nd - Explosive Special Teams player, we do not have a single explosive special teams only player, we need at least a special Kicker, Punter, Return man, the Redskins have average players at best and the good times have at least 1 special player in this critical phase of the game. I know you may say D-Line/WR but you add points/field position/eplosive plays if you improve this area.

3rd - Dominant Defensive Stud, this is where we were golden with Sean Taylor but the tragic events that took him from the redskins family and more importantly his own family have made this a priority again, these players can be found in lower first rounds and even in second and thrid rounds but we need to invest if necessary in special talent in the draft and not trade second round picks for guys like taylor. Good players found at the bottom of the draft 1st round, Antonio Cromartie, Luis Castillo, Vince Wilfolk, Jared Allen, all picks 19th and lower.

Lastly, Free Agent positions to aviod paying big money too, WR, DE, CB and RB..these positions seem to be first year bust with teams minus TO who usually blows up the second year.

Im just happy that I spent 13 seconds of my life reading this post...

I think the O-Line is worse on the interior. We've been running off-tackle all season, people were bound to figure that out sooner or later.

I also think ARE, Springs, and Washington need to be cut. Springs is great when he's healthy (rare as we all know), washington is losing a step and always hurt (and making too much to never play), and ARE just isn't earning his cap figure IMO.

Whoever said we need a dominate defensive stud was correct. We need a new intimidator on defense. Someone that makes receivers drop balls and running backs run out of bounds. Also i don't think Landry is a natural as a Free Safety. The defense is good, but lacks that mean streak that makes a defense truly great. Look at the way Pittsburg and Baltimore's defenses abuse people. Or Jacksonville last year. Our defense needs that brutal, punch you in the mouth attitude.

And finally, the receivers need to learn to catch the damn ball. Moss and Cooley seem to be the only ones who can catch anything, and even Moss drops easy passes a little too often.

Not posted for a while but felt compelled to after reading this post. This had me in stitches!!! Possibly the least insightful comment by anyone, EVER! And to think that the quote attributable to Sellars above must have been the most interesting thing said in the interview! Fantastic!

The worrying thing is though, if Sellars has no soultion then it's likely that Zorn and the coaches have no solution either cos I find it hard to believe they'd keep it a secret from him. Surely they'd let him in on the solution at some point if they had one???
