KW will want too much money, and will most likely complain about not enough balls going his way like keyshawn did..I don't want to see him in B&G next year.

i agree. i'd be worried he'd hold out, then complain about blocking more than being used as a receiver. yes, gibbs would find ways to use K2, but i remember him saying his main goal was to protect the QB. there's no way winslow would get the ball enough to satisfy him.

i disagree for one small(ok, rather large) reason..... KW,sr. his dad will keep him in check. why do you think a day after the soldier comment he was on tv saying, "duhrrr, i'm sorry"? I'll tell you why, cause daddy done pimp slapped the boy. he has a guiding light to follow. KW,sr won't allow him to make any huge career mistakes. after all the kid has the god given ability, as long as he has a mentor to keep his head straight, he could go a long way.

We manage to land Darren Howard who wants to prove he can play next to two good DTs and that he recovered from his injury a couple of years ago. We sign Dillon giving up our third round pick. That takes care of a lot of our problems on the team for the moment...


Everyone keeps talking about signing DT's in Free Agency. I don't think this is a realistic proposition. As much as I would love to see Adams and Ted Washington BOTH come to DC I don't really see either of them coming here. If Sapp wants to come...well I don't want him. These guys that you're talking about are all top 5 in thier position. How could we ever afford that with our paltry cap number?

I also remember last year thinking that we would find two DT's in free agency. That didn't get us far.

Great defensive fronts are put together over time. This isn't a plug and play deal. Cohesion may not be as important on the D-line as it is on the O-line, but it's still VERY important.

Also if we keep getting these veteran free agents we are going to be once a gain trying to buy a playoff berth. We'll get an old team, and we won't have any draft picks again next year.

I say we answer our needs through the draft and learn a little patience. We all know that we can't have the best players at every position. So lets draft young talent and teach em' right.

Redskins First Round Draft Pick

Postby cwilk627 » Wed Jan 28, 2004 4:54 pm

I believe the Redskins will draft Steven Jackson, RB Oregon, with their first round pick. They need a feature big back, and if one doesn't come to them via free agency, they'll have to get one in the draft. I know some people would prefer Kevin Jones, but nothing I've read rates him ahead of Jackson.

Steven Jackson(Oregon St.) is a solid choice if you are going RB. But, we have too many needs that can't all be fixed via free agency. The #5 pick has to be S.Taylor or trade down and take Randy Starks. Think DEFENSE DEFENSE DEFENSE.

1st pick

Postby Countertrey66 » Wed Jan 28, 2004 7:26 pm

I think if we can trade down a few picks and pick up an extra pick or 2,we should use or 1st pick on a DL.Udeze is my choice.But Harris would be helpful also.

i can see your line of reasoning, and i kind of agree, but i'm still not sold on K2. great athlete, definitely. and he'd undoubtedly help this team. but if he needs his dad to keep him in check then that's a problem. he's young and says dumb stuff (didn't we all?), and there's no guarantee his attitude would change under Gibbs. even with his dad it might or it might not. because if he wants the ball and isn't getting it, his dad may tell him to shut it but he'll still be unhappy. and that leads to bad things. it's just like any other draft pick i guess - it's all speculation until you get him on the team and find out what he'd do. shoot, i'd honestly love to have him on the team, but i just think the 'skins would be better served using the pick elsewhere.

Winslow would not be my pick at 5 that would be Sean Taylor, but if the Skin's take Winslow so long as the Redskins win he won't complain. If he did Gibbs will take care of that. I also wouldn't mind if we could trade down some and get an extra pick or 2 we have a few needs.

I'm in the vast minority - but I think Taylor and Winslow will be gone by #5. My pick is Steven Jackson - RB from Oregon State. I've seen him play live and several games on TV. Pure stud! If either of the other two fall to us - great too. But I think Jackson is the best to come out in a long time - a bit like LT in San Diego - but I think he's a bit more talented and better between the tackles... and that's saying a lot!

Hell No to Sapp!

Postby FootLongHog » Thu Jan 29, 2004 4:14 pm

I see two options: draft Taylor and pick a smallish but quick DE in the 2nd (there are a few), a TE in the 3rd or 4th (whichever we have), and a RB and DT in FA.

or we trade down with NE - grab Udeze or Smith, draft perry with the next pick, and a TE (Watson Troupe or the guy from Utah)with our 3rd pick, and then sign Adams and another DE (kearse, in a perfect world) in FA.

Sapp is a fat turd, i don't want him on my team.

wouldn't mind a decent C either.
No matter what they say, it's never large enough!

Even though I'm a VT fan I have to agree with Scooter about S.Jackson. If we go RB I would rather have SJ than KJ. I watched Jones all year and he is going to be explosive but, Jackson is better suited for power football. He will be a stud for someone. :D

Isn't Jackson 6'3? In which case he'd be more like Eddie George..Those big guys take some mean hits!!!

They do take hits but, Jackson doesn't run upright like George. He's runs with a lower center of gravity...similar to Ricky Williams. :D
