Trdading Down

I'm not so sure that Joe Gibbs' staff wouldn't prefer a savvy veteran player over a rookie. If someone is offering an elite back for our 5th and 2nd round picks, they might pounce.

We need a back, you're right, but I don't know if one will be worth all of that. But I guess we don't have much of a choice. I'd stick with Ladell or Rock before giving all those picks up.

true. while RB is a need, it's not the only one. now if we could land portis, mcallister or a back like that.....i would have to think hard about it.
BTW barry sanders is a free agent now :lol:

We should bring in a medium priced free agent like Mike Williams from the Broncos. I still think Rock or Ladell is our back. We need our picks for the dline!!! I am also in favor of trading Bailey if the deal was right because ultimately the dline is more important of a position and if you overpay you better do it on the dline.

If we continue to give big money to every fa that represents a hole on this team we will be so strapped for cap room we will not be able to sign our core players!!!

Personally, I would not trade 2 picks for an elite back.. too prone to injury.

Dline, Dline, Dline... that's the biggest weakness in my opinion.

What would y'all think about trading a 2nd or 3rd round pick for Lee Suggs? Just a thought...

i wonder if we could work out some type of trade to aquire a stud d-lineman? instead of first round compensation, trade for an end or tackle outright. :hmm: daryl gardner maybe :lol:

why'd the name barry Sanders have to come up? hasn't this been a fantastical enough offseason already... you gotta go start planting stuff like that.

man.... the chances of Barry Sanders coming back to play football and doing so in a Redskin uniform, are about as far-fetched as if Saint Gibbs himself decided to come back to coach in Washington.

Er...
Sean Taylor was one of a kind, may he rest in peace.

What about Kevin Jones wouldnt he be worth a 5th round pick? Dillon is already 30 and we could sign some competent 2 tackles (gardner), we should drop trotter (which has proven to be a bad sign) and sign Jevon Kearse with the freed up cap space, Kevin Mitchell is a competent enough Middle linebacker,

i agree 100% all the way!!!!

Postby gibbsfan » Wed Jan 14, 2004 11:22 am

that the primary need is defensive line,we do have those two rb,s that you have mentioned in rock and ladel betts i wouldn,t look past them by no means but withe 5th pick in round 1 sure looks good for that miami (dt) w/jevon kearse on the outside.tading down would be another option too.

anything to improve that defensive and help lavar out.
Thanks for 10 years .

Trotter won't get dropped - he will get used properly in this scheme of Williams, I believe

The DLine is the utmost priority - with that we can get the ball back more and have a more consistent running attack - Trung doesn't get hurt, you never know what kind of season he might have had - once the line gelled he was getting some decent runs of 7-12 yards at a time...

I really think Defense should be most of the focus - that and TE....

Defence should be the pick Sean Taylor or a top Dlineman. Betts, Rock and Trung can handle the ball well enough.

I agree Warmother - a lot of people don't understand how painful a high ankle sprain is and how easy it is to reinjure running on it shortly after having it the first time...

When I have heard player-experts talking about it, they talk months for it to heal, not a couple of weeks. I think Trung showed some good skills and I think Betts is the back that Gibbs might like for the power situations. People forget that Gibbs has played with both power and speed backs and rotated them in the past... Riggins was only there a short while
