Average age of a team is a terrible statistic to judge anything on. Our best players, with the exception of McNabb, Moss, Cooley, and Fletcher, are under 27.

Posted by: Section104

You basically named every good player with the exceptin of Orakpo.

This is team is paper thin. All of the quality players are starters. There are no quality backups at any position other than TE. If a starter goes down it is devastating.

Here are the players that are going to need to be replaced in the next two years. Dockery, Rabach, Hicks, Maake, DE, Fletcher, Carter, Moss, #2 wr and a CB.

There is no one on the team that is young looks like they are going to be able to step into those roles. Compounding the problem is that the Redskins do not have a full complement of draft picks next year. Next year's free agent class should be decent so they may be able to fill a few holes but with cap it will become costly. They are going to have to commit big bucks to McNabb.

Over the next 3 years there will be steady turnover of the roster which will make it hard to be anything more than a fringe playoff team.

Posted by: srobert1117 | September 21, 2010 2:10 PM | Report abuse

This is a valid perspective interspersed with a fair amount of crap.

First off, "two years" is an exaggeration. Half those guys will play longer than two years. They might not play for us, but they will play for someone. On top of that, they actually do have some players that will be ready to step into those holes in two years.

Yes, the team is thin. That's what happens when a team is mismanaged for 10 years: you have problems with depth. There are few teams that are worse off in this area than the Redskins, but they aren't the least-talented team in the league. Plus, isn't Fred Davis a backup? Devin Thomas? Adam Carriker (before last week)? Keiland Williams? Brandon Banks? Lorenzo Alexander? Phillip Buchanon? Isn't Cory Lichtensteiger on the verge of starting over Dockery right now? Not all the backups are talent-less, as you claim.

I have news for you: most NFL teams have depth problems. What happened to the Cowboys when 2 of their starting o-linemen went down? Is Alex Barron actually any better than Stephon Heyer?

Look, obviously it will take time to turn this team around. Nobody is expecting them to go to the Super Bowl this year - and probably not next year either. But you have to start somewhere, and turning over half the roster for healthier players (at most positions) is a good start.

Bucs beat Cle and Car who has no QB.

KC beat SD in a storm, mostly with big punt returns, and Cle. KC has had 1 TD drive this season of over 12 yards.

Chi beat Det on a blown call

Fins, Texans and Steelers are for real. Steeler defense is looking terrific, Texans have a terrific offense and the Fins have played tough.

Really hoping that Andre Johnson is ready to light up dallas this week. It'd really suck if we dinged him up to the point we give dallas a big advantage.

Anyway, my hope for the Super Bowl?

Eagles release Baskett to make room for RB
September, 21, 2010
Sep 21
3:39
PM ET

By Matt Mosley
The Philadelphia Eagles have released veteran wide receiver Hank Baskett in order to make room for running back Joique Bell, who was signed off the Buffalo Bills' practice squad.

Bell, an undrafted rookie, led the Bills with 152 yards rushing and two touchdowns on 27 carries in the preseason, but he was released Sept. 4 and then signed to the practice squad a day later.

The 24-year-old Bell posted remarkable numbers at Division II Wayne State and was named player of the year after rushing for more than 2,000 yards and collecting 29 touchdowns.

Baskett played in the Super Bowl for the Colts last season before returning to the Eagles this past offseason. He became expendable in large part because rookie wide receiver Riley Cooper emerged as a capable threat in training camp.

6 ft. 4 in. 220 lbs. He would be the biggest receiver on the active roster.

Old teammate of Donovan McNabb, hopefully meaning WR/QB chemistry would still be there.

Not saying it's the golden shoe that fits but come on, wouldn't be a bad acquisition.

power rankings are certainly subjective at best but IMO they are kinda fun. To your question though, I don't know many people anywhere including me that think we have a more talented team than the Cowboys. They just got their line healthy and they have made some questionable coaching choices, if you got rid of the uniforms and just had to pick a roster you'd pick ours of theirs? I think not.....

Posted by: BeantownGreg1 | September 21, 2010 4:45 PM | Report abuse

srobert -- agree with you on the age issue. Shanahan decided he needed to have success now. Part of that was bring in vets with limited shelf life (McNabb, Hicks, Kemo).

One of the most underestimated issues in NFL is the length of time a player can play for a team in a spot. Essentially, every year a guy returns to his position and plays well, that is a 'solved problem'. The nature of the NFL is that you'll have 30 key spots to fill and in an average year, 6-8 spots to fill.

This year, the Skins basically kept their DBs, moved a couple DL to LB and had to remake most of the DL rotation (only Daniels, Golston and maybe Albert are still a part of the 2010 rotation). The defense added about 4 guys. The offense changed 2 WRs, 3 OL, the QB and the backup RB.

11 of the top 30 spots, by my count. Many of these guys are older, meaning another replacement will be needed soon (at RB, soon ought to be next week for LJ).

That is tough to do well, get that many new players in important roles.

Well, when the point of the exercise is to try and rank overall talent and where you thing a team will finish then yeah you kinda can/have to get around a week one score largely decided by a Jim Zorn level of the all time idiotic decisions and a holding call that anyone who watches football knows was a good call but holding happens all the time without getting called.

First off, if you got rid of the unis a lot of female reporters would be in there ogling the guys' packages.

Second off, it's not about the "roster." The roster doesn't coach itself. You got to go with the coaches, culture, talent. In short, the total package.

You can't put the Cowboys ahead of the Redskins and still claim that you're a logical thinker. Go back, Jack, and get it right.

Looked at what other similar QBs have done beginning at his age. On average, they started for 4 more years, and those seasons were split between good, average and not good.

The odds say he's got 2 more good years, another average year and not much more than that. Of course, no one knows whether he'll be the exception or not.

Oh right, just because a team wins a game it automatically means they are the better team, I completely forgot about this...........or perhaps things broke really well for us in that game, and for example this sunday they didn't. Everyone wants to say Houston is elite cause they are 2-0 and Dallas is trash at 0-2? IMO Houston is a good team that is nowhere near elite yet and Dallas is a team with a lot of talent that hasn't played well yet and has been injured at a couple of key spots. IMO we're capable of beating either team at any time and frankly with our opportunistic defense and Donovan we can beat anyone. But from a pure standpoint of roster talent and at the end of a 16 game season not a 2 game season where will everyone stand, IMO Houston won't win their division, and we'll be in a real dogfight with the Cowboys to win ours and also IMO the loser of that fight will miss the playoffs.

I put out a different plan that would have had us much younger, but that isn't the way Shanahan wants to take this thing.

philly just signed jaqiououieoue bell off the Buffalo practice squad. Could he be any worse than Larry Johnson?

We signed Rabach to a long term deal, but we all know he isn't a long term solution, and a marginal 2010 solution.

Joey Galloway? He made a big play vs Houston, but kicking DT11 to the bottom of the WR spots (deserved or not) isn't going to help him become a pro WR. Were/are there other young FA WRs worth taking a risk on? Don't know, seems miles austin worked out pretty well for dallas.

Look, Shanahan had a lot of issues, especially on offense. He made needed changes. But we didn't get younger.

SWEDISH FOOTBALLER DENIES TRADE RUMORS

STOCKHOLM -- Swedish Premier League striker Hamm Samvitch is vehemently denying rumors that he is part of an international player trade deal that is also said to involve disgruntled Washington Redskins defensiver lineman Albert Haynesworth.

"First, I have no interest in leaving the Stockholm Stompers," explained the international forward who also plays for the Swiss National Team. "I enjoy it here, this is my home, and I believe that I still have much to contribute to our team, its fans, and our nation at large."

He continued, "But perhaps even more important, and especially when you consider all that we know and believe about Herr Worthless -- we simply have no interest whatsoever if ever seeing such an overpaid waste of roster spot anywhere near our football grounds, our city, or for that matter anywhere else within our national borders."

Samvitch concluded, "While we Swiss have long prided ourselves on maintaining our neutrality in the midst of any number of international disputes, and letting common sense rule the day -- we just couldn't stand by any longer and let the reputation of our proud football club, and indeed international standing of our nation, continue to suffer from this errant misassociation with Herr Worthless."
