He said thinks the ONLY difference between the two is that Gibbs run the low-risk, power-running game and Saunders uses complicated schemes with movement and motion. If that was the only difference than why would there be a clash in offensive philosophies?? They could just run the Gibbs offence with complicated schemes with movement and motion added to it.

I think he is just writing stuff to fill up lines on the page.


Besides, Gibbs was one of the main innovators when it comes to using motion. Hello! H-Back anyone? A hybrid TE-FB that NEVER lines up where he will be when the play starts.

Fred Smoot, 3 INTs the past 2 years. Carlos Rogers, 3 INTs the past 2 years.

Just saying :wink:

Smoot was so good because he played opposite a shutdown corner. He had more opportunity, and he is talented, but he's no Champ. And please, don't put Springs in the same category with Champ, it's apples and oranges.

I'm not saying he's Champ but people don't tend to avoid him and go to the other side. Thats all Im trying to imply.

I'm talking bout Redskin SMoot, not Vinny SMoot. If we get Viking Smoot then we're going to be let down. Everyone is hoping for him to return to form and that means a lot of INTs.

Why is it that every year teams almost never negotiate with their first round draft choices until a day or two before camp. I just heard Landry will most likely be a hold out! :evil:

Interesting discussion about several positions. This is the year that Rogers -must- step up or else ...

... he will be relegated to backup corner for the rest of his tenure with us.

While I feel that a rotation might be put in place to protect Springs and to give several players opportunities, I have a gut feeling that Macklin is going to give others a run for their money. I am not really sure about Smoot as anything else other than a nickel back. His limitations got exposed in Minny. He had a terrible tenure there. It will be interesting to follow this competition. One thing is for sure, I feel A LOT better with this group compared to the former group last year!

It's only training camp, but I thought Rogers looked pretty good yesterday. He seems to be playing with a chip on his shoulder.

Sweet, that's good to hear. I've never lost faith in this kid and I think he rebounds with a huge year. Thanks for posting that.
