I don't believe this BS for a second.
May #21 never be worn again by another Redskin but may every Redskin play like they are wearing #21 on their backs.

And we didn't even go crazy last year.. in actuality don't we have more roll over + the cap space totaling ~80 million?

From Pro football Talk:

[T]he NFL instructed teams not to use the uncapped years as a way to dump money in order to ensure that cap numbers in years with a salary cap would be lower.


If the NFL did in fact let teams know about this then we have the most incompetent front office in the entire league.

WTF. All of these moves were APPROVED by the NFL! We sent modified contacts to the NFL, they approved them, and NOW the moves aren't OK!

That is why they had to send contracts to the league for approval! They signed off on then do they were OK with the NFL at one time.

Just out of curiosity how much cap space did the Cowboys have?

Andrew Brandt reporting it was the Haynesworth and Hall contracts that resulted in the penalty.

HOPEFULLY - IF this is true, Snyder will fire the FO and bring in somebody that knows how to manage this franchise

OR

bring back Cerrato :twisted:
Getting our QB back will help a lot but we still have a lot of issues to address

Players and coaches need to believe that they can be successful - they are not playing with that attitude - big changes are coming

HAIL


Currently 50-41

Well whatever... Aren't we used to disappointment by now Redskins fans? I guess we aren't allowed more than 48 hours of happiness.

I am not worried about it. Our front office has always done wonders making the numbers work. I have full confidence we can still sign the players we need.
