I have no problem with taking Locker at 10 but I hope that the fans will be very patient as it is very apparent to all the people that know that he needs at least a year before he will be ready to play - this guy has a lot of upside for the future - again ... not saying that Locker would be a bad pick in the first round but nobody with any QB knwledge is saying that Jake will be able to play the first year - everyone agrees that he has a lot of potential given a year of prep work with a good QB coach

I'm fine with that but I don't think that as much as Mike appears to love this guy he's going to throw him into the mix too soon - at least I hope not

NOW - given that Jake is not able to play for a year, do you still take him at 10 - I think not :wink:

rebuilding will be painful but we have to do it :)

that being said I'm not interested in using the 10 pick on T Smith - we just have too much work to do across the board to do that when it looks like better players are available at that spot
one should always try to look on the bright side ... especially Redskins fans after the past 20 plus years

things will get better .... hopefully soon

Hail to the Redskins

Frankly, I won't be surprised if Jake Locker goes as high as 10... just sayin...


You may very well be onto something there.


This possibilty was being discussed on the LaVar and Dukes show today.

As complicated as the offense is, I don't think that we will be seeing any rookie QB play this season except in an emergency.

I kind of hope that the FO has identified a QB that they think might be able to develop into a really good QB and I'm prepared to wait - I'm not sure that QB is going to be our pick at 10

I just don't see them taking Tyron Smith - we really need to hope that there is a player available that we can use to trade down but if we have to use the pick - I just don't see them picking this OT

On 1/5/2010 Armstrong signed a three-year deal, he will be a Restricted Free Agent in 2013


I was talking about his resume of dependability since he was a rook last year.

I want to win the Super Bowl this year - I also hope that this FO really looks very hard at how to re-build this franchise with a bunch of young players that can start to develop into a good team

we will need to keep some of the current roster but basically we have needs all over the place and the biggest problem is that we have too many older players and we need to start getting younger players on the field - we cannot continue with the thought process that we can be competitive while we rebuild here


This group made some bad decisions both with players and defensive and offensive schemes - let's make the priority that we are building a team - this group seem to be trying to make the priority that we can be competitive while we rebuild
that aint going to get it done

bring in a bunch of young players - let them grow together and help the few great young players that we have, develop into a great team


I think the one good thing that we saw last year is the change in attitude - all teams have that - now we need more young guys that are hungry and looking for an opportunity

the talent evaluators need to do a much better job and bring in young guys that will help make the good players we already have even better
