McCloughan Plucks Picks From Seahawks

The Redskins have traded their 3rd Round draft pick to the Seattle Seahawks. In return for the 69th overall pick, Washington will get the 95th, 112th, 167th and 181st picks.

In my best Foghorn Leghorn voice…

“I say, I say, well that’s a helluva deal Mr. McCloughan.”

Four picks for one? Granted dropping all the way to 95 from 69 in round two stings a bit, but what a haul the Redskins new General Manager just grabbed from Seattle.

With the 69 pick, the Seahawks chose wide receiver Tyler Lockett. Geebus, I guess they really liked the guy.

With a sudden cache of picks, the Redskins may not be done either, they now have the resources to move up throughout the draft.

Hail to the Redskins.

Redskins Bolster Secondary, Add Johnson

The Redskins took another step in re-building their secondary today, and signed former Seattle Seahawks safety Jeron Johnson. He was with the Seahawks from 2011 until 2014, and backed up Pro Bowl strong safety Kam Chancellor.

Johnson tweeted the news early Monday afternoon, and the NFL’s Ian Rapoport confirmed and tweeted out the details of the deal – two years, $4 million.

Johnson only had one start in Seattle, but was a special teams mainstay. He appeared in 46 games, and had 43 tackles, and two forced fumbles. The Redskins don’t have the venerable Chancellor on their roster, or anyone like him, so Washington likely has every intention of giving Johnson a shot at starting. Plus, Scot McCloughan knows what he has in Johnson first hand, from his time in Seattle – he was a senior personnel executive when Johnson made the team as an undrafted free agent.

With last year’s starters gone (Ryan Clark retired and Brandon Meriweather was let go), Johnson isn’t likely the last safety addition that the Redskins will make. Despite his inexperience, he may prove to be the best one.

McCloughan’s fifth free agent decision, is his fifth defensive acquisition. All shrewd. All low key. All young guys. All guys that can help make the Redskins a better ball club.

Hail to the Redskins!

Great Super Bowl

As much as I hated the entire week leading up to the Super Bowl, the game itself was absolutely fantastic. It was… what the Super Bowl is supposed to be. A closely contested battle between what were quite obviously the league’s two best teams.

Let’s face it, the Seahawks blew it. There isn’t a coach / player / team alive that wouldn’t take the scenario that Seattle had. Down by just 4 points – less than a minute to go – but with the ball on the one yard line and with the game’s absolute best power back in your backfield. Marshawn Lynch can gain a yard on nearly any play, he is #BeastMode for a reason. That reason. The guy can run with 8 NFL players on his back. His leg drive is incredible.

So how on earth do you call a pass? Read the rest of this entry »

Richard Sherman Parody

It was really sad to see the Seattle Seahawks bow out of the playoffs yesterday, and by sad, I mean poetic. I’m sure I’m not the only Redskin fan in #RedskinsNation who like Trent Williams, wants to smack Richard Sherman in his mealy little mouth; so it was a little bit sweet to watch Roddy White blow past him like he wasn’t even there for a touchdown.

Early Play-Off Look For Redskins

Its definitely too early to really make play-off predictions, but Steve Wyche did so any way. There’s no real surprise information here. Obviously, he has the Giants, Panthers and Cardinals as locks, since all three of these teams are the class of their division, at least as it presently looks in the standings. He also lists Tampa Bay as being “In good standing.” Again, no surprise. They are 7-3 and playing pretty good football. Read the rest of this entry »
