Duce is good, but he has had some injury issues that I don't like to see and the holdout and resulting attitudes that were being bounced around up there made me sour on him some...

He has gotten bigger since his injuries to compensate. It made him slower but powerful.

Yeah, plus he is in a bad situation cause there is a beast named "West-broke"
(Westbrook) :D


I also notice most guys start to cry toward the end of there contracts(INMO)

Countertrey, please don't get any Eddie George rumors started. Chris Brown is the better back of the two. IMO Eddie George is keeping Tennessee from being a dominant team in the AFC. His best days are far behind him. He only averaged 3.3 YPC and had 5 TDs. I don't know about anyone else here but I definitely do not want to see Eddie in burgandy and gold.

I still say Barlow or Johnson - maybe Mike Cloud from KC if he is available... anyone like that might not be a bad idea - I know Cloud never got much of a chance due to Priest taking off and New England not doing much with him...

I truly want DL and TE help before RB in the draft, so I hope the Skins settle this in FA

I still got hope for Trung. He is still one of the Fastest RBs in the league today.

Martz did not have a good RB coach. Faulk got his expertise by being on more than one team, plus experience. Just ask the backup in St.Louis

Redskins Notes: One rumor making rounds here is that the Redskins are among a few teams who will try to land tailback Corey Dillon from Cincinnati. NFL team executives believe that Dillon will go to the highest bidder among the Buccaneers, Cowboys and Redskins. Dillon will count more than $3 million against the cap next season.

I hope thats just a rumor, I think Dillon would be a huge risk, and at 3 mil a season I just don't think we can aford to take that kind of chance. Our money would be much better spent on someone who is not a problem child.
