Yesterday I hit the Twitter waves for a little crowdsourcing information – I wanted to grab Redskins fans before they dissipate for the offseason, and I wanted to find out what they felt the Redskins most glaring needs are for 2013.
The vast majority of people were looking for help in the secondary, but there were some more detailed responses AND some slightly more creative ones too. Here is a collection of some of the responses:
Resounding cries for help in the secondary:
@TheHogsdotNet upgrading both safety positions is a must!
— Mr. T (@DablkClarkKent) January 10, 2013
@TheHogsdotNet strong safety and or shut down corners
— HTRG3! (@mattsfusaf) January 10, 2013
@TheHogsdotNet secondary help!
— Skins Caps (@wldthing20) January 10, 2013
@TheHogsdotNet our secondary needs an upgrade. Faster & stronger especially at safety
— Riksouthworth (@Riksouthworth) January 10, 2013
@TheHogsdotNet bigger stronger faster secondary. Minor upgrades on o-line. Healthy tight ends and d-line
— Redskin Joe (@redskin_joe) January 10, 2013
@TheHogsdotNet stud SEC safety or cb, complimentary rb to Alf and RT

@TheHogsdotNet resign Davis. Restructur Halls deal. NOT CUT HIM. Sign a Byrd. Sign Reggie Bush.
— Nick Nunziata (@Nunziiii) January 10, 2013
@TheHogsdotNet RT , FS and at least depth at CB would seem the minimum also TE depth

@TheHogsdotNet Ridiculous FS, Physical SHUT DOWN CB, SUPER FAST WR!!

— HTTR (@Lifelongskinfan) January 10, 2013
@TheHogsdotNet new field surface. Upgrade secondary. Depth at Linebacker.

@TheHogsdotNet Upgrade ALL DB positions, Fletch back, Davis back, Orakpo back, another rush LB, RT upgrade, no2 WR, space eating NT!
— David Bohm (@ES_Oldskool) January 10, 2013
@TheHogsdotNet Ball-hawking safeties, cover CB's, RT, a viable replacement to groom as a replacement for Fletch, field turf and RB depth.
— Keith K. (@k_kahuna) January 10, 2013
@TheHogsdotNet draft safety, sign a safety… draft cb, sign a cb, draft a Rt, sign a Rt
— Kevin Coleman (@KevinGaGa_TBHxC) January 10, 2013

Crowdsourcing on Twitter can have mixed results, but sometimes you get exactly what I got – some passionate pleas from an informed fan base. It’s a great opportunity for the fans to ‘see their name in lights’ in a blog, as well as providing a whole ready-made list of Redskin die hard followers to add to your Twitter account. I include the tweet boxes so that you can easily just go down the list and click that ‘Follow’ button a bunch of times.
So follow ’em all up – and follow back too. Let’s grow #RedskinsNation out in the 2013 offseason.
Sorry if your tweets didn’t make it to the blog, but I had so many – nothing personal at all. I may actually have to do a ‘Part Deux’ tomorrow with the rest of them. In the meantime, you can hit me up on Twitter @TheHogsDotNet and tell me what a jerk I am and I will edit the blog and add your tweet. 😀
… or you ould just add it to the comments of this blog.
