Talk about the Washington Redskins here. Do you bleed burgundy and gold?

Should the Redskins sign Darrell Russell?

Sapp would be a nice edition to our D but he is costly.


I don't think we should go after Sapp at all! His best days are behind him...and he would command too high a price for what he has to offer in his later years.

It reminds me, somewhat, of when the Skins got Dana Stubblefield. At the time, he was a stud...and when he came to us, he was mediocre.

I don't think Sapp could ever be mediocre...but he certainly wouldn't be able to play at a level to justify the price one would have to pay to get him.

Just my My 2 cents

Venting Hog stopped over at our site, Cowboysguide, and said feel free to come here so don't get too mad about a Cowboy fan showing himself.

Now on to Russell. Good signing for the Redskins (at least for the short term), terrible siging for Russell. After all of his problems, Washington was one of the last places he needed to be.

Washington is having serious discipline problems. Witness all the penalties, players airing their laundry in the media, a serious power struggle (at least in the player's minds) between the coaching staff and the owner, etc. A player with serious self-discipline problems really doesn't need this situation.

Add to that the above average night life of the DC metroplex and it's a recipe for disaster.


On a side note, your main page is terrific, but the font when typing a post is very difficult, but that may be the way I'm configured. I've got white on gold that's very difficult to see.

He is exspensive. He is also better than any DT we had in the last 13 years. I would take him. You dont see guys running at him and thats what we need. He is still the most respected DT in the game today, whether you like it or not.

Welcome curveball, and no problem having a Cowboy fan here... we forgive you. :-)

There's actually a welcome posted to CowboysGuide members in here somewhere that I posted.

As members of the F2FA we welcome all foreign intrusions and ask only that you obey the rules of our board. I can't promise you'll find much love here, but you will be able to find out anything you wanna know about the Skins.

... as for the font issue... not really sure why you're having a problem... it should just be courier.

Enjoy the site, and thanks for dropping by.
Sean Taylor was one of a kind, may he rest in peace.

I agree that Sapp may be too expensive and he kinda does resemble the Stubby signing.

Oh right...so Russell should have signed with the Dallas crackwagon? Please.
God bless our troops and Joe Gibbs.
We'll miss you, Joe.
