Skins' Inaugural Plans; Cooley Catches Caps

Forgot to link to these yesterday...Dan Steinberg reports on the Redskins' Inauguration plans (no, Portis will not be holding the Bible).

He also reports that Chris and Christy Cooley recently made out/smooched/locked lips on the Caps' Kiss Cam. What I found more interesting, though, was the note on Cooley's blog that 1) he took the Metro to Verizon (way to be part of the global warming solution and not the problem!) and 2) accidently left the Benz running in the parking lot from 5 p.m. to 2 a.m. (Oops.)

There's a story in a New York paper saying Eli Manning's might get an extension up to $120 million.

He'll get it, but if the Giants have to secure him, Jacobs, Ward, some others, and wait out the Plaxico Burress mess, the Madden GM wonders about a couple things:

is Eli really worth $120 million?

if they pay Jacobs, can they also pay Ward?

which jints cast-offs would be worth an investment by the Skins?

how much is Jason Campbell worth in a world where Eli gets $120 million?

Sometimes what happens to things around us define who we are or what we'll become.

Moe thinks that the outcome of some of the jints decisions might be a couple of guys changing into burgandy and gold jerseys, especially if one is Derrick Ward or a lineman they release because they have other money issues.

IRVIN TALKS SHOP WITH A GUNMAN
Posted by Mike Florio on January 14, 2009, 8:58 a.m. EST
Hall of Fame receiver and former ESPN talking head Michael Irvin had a gun pointed at him on Monday night, according to the Dallas Morning News.

Irvin told police he was stopped at a red light when the driver of the vehicle next to him rolled down its window.

So Irvin rolled down his window, and then he saw the passenger of the other car point a gun at him.

And then the guys in the other car realized it was Irvin.

“The passenger pulled out a semiautomatic and I knew what time it was,” Irvin said. “But he said ‘Oh, that’s Michael Irvin, with the Dallas Cowboys.’

“So we started talking about the Cowboys and everything. Then they got back on the highway,” Irvin said.

“I tell you what, I’m glad he was a Cowboy fan.”

We suspect that police found something under Irvin’s seat after the incident. And that it smelled a lot worse than a marijuana pipe.

Eli and Jason's numbers are very close If Eli is really worth 120 M than Jason's worth 100 M. I am not anti JC but I don't see him worth that.

His name is worth 70mil, his skills are worth 20mil and the fact he helped them win a SB is worth 30mil.

And I dont see us extending JC, if we do, for more than 5 years. There are only certain players you lock up for a lot of years... and i dont think Eli is one. He has to be the streakiest QB in the league.

But maybe they realize without a big WR, like Buress, it diminishes his skillset dramatically.

I wonder who we could say has a similar issue without WR's/

Posted by: Zeebs | January 14, 2009 9:20 AM | Report abuse

moe, I heard that story this morning driving to work about Eli. I think that will make him the highest paid player in the league. Not sure how I feel about that....If I recall, a good lot of their linemen have been locked up in the past few years.

What I found interesting was that they talked to a couple of the players on this team, JTuck, being one of them, and he was saying how he was 100 percent behind bringing back Plaxico. The guy who you could make an arguement cost them the season. After he went out they lost 4 of 5, or something like that.

Posted by: BeantownGreg | January 14, 2009 9:21 AM | Report abuse

And saying that makes me think that McNabb is a good but maybe moreso great QB never having a good set of WR's.

That is why when he did have TO, they were great and so was he.

And once Tom Terrific had Moss they went 18-0 and he broke Mannings records.

Posted by: Zeebs | January 14, 2009 9:22 AM | Report abuse

Zeebs,
I would even argue that without a superstar WR like Plex Eli is a sub JC level qb.

Which proves my point even more Greg. And shows why we faltered after teams figured out our passing game and shut down our Offense.

RYAN MOVES TO FRONT OF THE PACK?
Posted by Mike Florio on January 14, 2009, 9:21 a.m. EST
At a time when Jets G.M. Mike Tannenbaum reportedly is wresting with a decision that could seal his own fate if it isn’t the right one, Erik Boland of Newsday reports that Ravens defensive coordinator Rex Ryan is the current favorite.

Citing an unnamed source, Boland reports that Tannenbaum is “leaning” toward Ryan.

Per the report, offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer remains in the mix for the job, too. But since he is expected to remain with the team if he doesn’t get the job, the Jets might be tempted to make Ryan the head coach and allow Schottenheimer to continue to run the offense.

It’s the only way the Jets could end up with both men, since they can’t add Ryan via a lateral move from the Ravens.

Giants defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo and Cardinals assistant head coach Russ Grimm also are candidates for the position.

"And once Tom Terrific had Moss they went 18-0 and he broke Mannings records"

Zeebs, Tom won 3 super bowls with guys like Deion Branch, David Patten, and Troy Brown.

Getting Randy Moss was a luxury, they didn't necessarily have to have him, to be successful.

Posted by: BeantownGreg | January 14, 2009 9:27 AM | Report abuse

I thought are coaching search was bad, what if Ryan doesn't want Shott. running the offense.

Tannenbaum should have been fored along with Mangini they made some bone head moves last off-season.

Trading for the interception machine was stupid.

Okay, what do you want out of the draft?

With our #13 pick, we want a guy that is a LOCK to be a good starter at his position. And we want to fill an area of need.

BUT THE TRUTH is here to tell you the LOCKS to be good starters in the NFL coming in this year's draft!

OT Andre Smith
OT Micheal Oher
OT Eugene Monroe
OT Ebon Britton
WR Micheal Crabtree
LB Aaron Curry
LB Ray Maulauaga
DE Tyson Jackson
DT BJ Raji
DT Periah Jerry
OG Herman Johnson

OG Duke Robinson

CB DJ Moore
LB Clint Stintim
OT Jason Smith
WR Jeremy Maclin (at least as a return man)
DE Brian Orokpo (in the correct scheme)
DE Micheal Johnson (in the correct scheme)
DE Everette Brown
C Alex Mack
OG Andy Levitre
C Antoine Caldwell
DT Fili Moala

The issue the Skins have about re-signing Campbell is that unlike Eli, the outcome of his talent really is not a certain thing.

Eli goes to New York, sits behind Kurt Warner for a lil' bit, stays in one system while the FO builds an offense around him, and poof: he gets a ring.

Jason Campbell comes to Washington, spends an eternity behind Brunell, learns one system, then another, then another, and has to perform behind an aging line in an offense where the starting running back needs the ball like it's crack and he's hooked.

And because there's been no talk of an extension for him, Campbell gotta wonder what happens if next season looks like the last one.

He won't get serious money like Eli and will have to look over his shoulder as an uncertain Zorn starts searching for the insert Colt Brennan button if the team fails to make the playoffs.

His career for Redskins fans will be like the case of Benjamin Button: Campbell will morph backwards and turn into Patrick Ramsey right in front of our faces.

And we'll all be curious about how it happened.

I had this awful dream last night about the draft. The first 3 picks were very obscure and shockers - Andre Smith, Stafford were still on the board. Suddenly Adolf Goddell announced a trade - the Skins had traded all 4 draft picks to move up to #4....and draft Anquan Boldin's brother, a WR from Tenn-Chattanooga...I woke up in a sweat yelling "No Vinny noooooo!"

Posted by: TheCork | January 14, 2009 10:58 AM | Report abuse

truth

I think Moreno is a young Portis...but cutting Betts, taking the sal cap hit that goes with that, and going after Derrick Ward would give the Skins a versitile, speedy back.

The team should seriously think about adding a low cost FA corner to replace Springs or, if Springs stays, to challenge Smoot.

Of course, the team must show DeAngelo Hall the money and a starting spot.

Signing Bart Scott is a must. He replaces Washington as the strongside 'backer.

The team really must figure out what's up with Rocky McIntosh's knees and coverage skills. Maybe there's a low cost FA outside linebacker out there who what's to start. I like Channing Crowder.

The draft picks should go: rt, rg/wlb, dt, c/cb

These are really very simple realistic changes.

But when have things ever been simple or realistic in D.C.

Well said. Let's hope the Button analogy proves false. He is in a tough spot though, what with having to learn 50 different offenses, an O-line that's breaking down and 2+ yrs on the pine. If we get him some line help in the draft and people are patient with Zorn (i.e., not calling for his head after 1 year, or in Week 3 of Year 2), he can still be a success here.

While I think JC is a no doubt starter in this league, I also don't think he's a pro bowl QB ever. He just doesn't make the throws unless its a slant, screen, or his guy has broken wide open. You never see him throw the back shoulder throw against single coverage, you never see him release the ball before the receiver breaks, and you rarely see him challenge single coverage deep. Unless he suddenly learns how to do that, he'll never take that next step and after 4 years I'm not sure how much "learning" he has left in him. We all still act like he's a rookie or something, yeah he's had to learn several systems, but that stuff is universal to any system, and don't give me that Zorn's WCO is so much harder than the WCO he ran in college or that everyone else picks up quickly. Pennington learned a new system in like 2 weeks, Flacco, Ryan, and others all learn systems quickly.

Moe, why is signin Bart Scott a must? He's got 2, maybe 3 good years left; Ray Lewis is a freak of nature to be playing this well at 33, and this year is a bit of an anomaly for him relative to the past 3-4 (no pun intended).

Scott will cost us $5-6 million/year. We can draft a LB in ROund 3 and pay him 20% of that and he'll be 6-7 years younger. I think that's the route we have to go. I know Scott's a beast, but it only propogates the viscious cycle of signing excellent performers who are nearing the end of their prime (Scott will be 29 in August).

I cannot stand the Dallas Cowboys, therefore I am not and never will be a fan of Michael Irvin or any other Cowboy player but I think it is meanspirited and a little crass to refer to the man as a piece of trash(VABEACHBlITZ). He was inducted to the HOF soley on his onfield accomplishments and is no more a disgrace to the HOF than any number of other players who were not choir boys off the field,(Paul Horning, Lawrence Taylor to name a few)so give the guy a break, he hasn't had any run ins with the law recently and what happened to him could have contributed to his death(we don't want to wish that on anyone)and in these days and times what happened to him could have also happened to you.
