Dirty Thirty Gone?

Postby Skinsfan55 » Sat Mar 03, 2012 8:33 am

Reports are saying that the Redskins expect to lose LaRon Landry in free agency. They used the franchise tag on Davis, and JLC in particular is saying the Skins have no interest in re-signing Landry.

Personally, I think that's probably the right move actually. Unless Landry were to sign a one year, incentive laden contract, why re-sign him to a contract based around his considerable potential? I mean, I think he's way more interested in pumping iron than in playing football. I'd prefer to just be rid of him... I'm sure we can find someone else who gets it done in FA with our $49 mil in cap room.

I'm fine with Landry leaving. He can play great at times, but he has to be on the field to play at all. He refused to get his achilles tendon repaired and his body building obsession is ruining his football career. Muscle builds faster than ligaments and tendons strengthen. That is with out PEDs!

IMHO if Landry keeps putting weight lifting over football he will never stay healthy enough to be worth having on the team.

I think Landry was a difference maker when healthy and still hope the skins sign him to either a one year deal or a contract with an out after one if he's not healthy.

His leaving leaves a big hole in the secondary without good Free agent or draft options to fill it...

He leaves the same hole that is there when he is healthy. What is the difference between the hole that is there when he isn't healthy enough to play and the hole that would be there if he left?

Really the four years he has been on the team, had he played a total of 16 very good to great games?

I would rather have a consistent player that is a always in the right position but doesn't have Landry's big play ability. At least you can plan your defense around that guy.

yup there was a big hole this year and we never filled it.


I just think I'd rather give Landry $5 million this year and see if he can return to form than to cut ties altogether. It at least gives us the chance of filling that hole with a great player. If we let Landry go, I doubt you get anything but a warm body in that spot this year...

not worth it, won't be on the field. Better off trying to sign a healthy safety as it appears Atogwe can't stay healthy either.

I think we should sign (try) to sign him to a 1-year deal.

The only thing I'm scared about him leaving is if he goes to the Girls or Iggles and never misses a game again and makes the pro bowl every year.....Now THAT WOULD SUCK!!!!! However hopefully even he's smart enough to know better than that ;)

HOPEFULLY the Redskins keep Landry here
Robert Griffin needs to step it up and play QB - he's got the talent he needs to make it happen

RGIII - week 1 - it wasn't bad, it just wasn't great - growing pains is all

HAIL


week 1 = 8-8

Isn't that true of just about every player?

The problem with Landry is he has an emu that requires surgery to fix but he refuse to get it done.

I'd be gutted if he left, he's probably my favourite player.

And with the dubious reputation off the Redskins medical team I wouldn't be surprised if he went elsewhere and played regularly again.

Just can't stand the thought of him playing for another team... God forbid he ended up elsewhere in our division.
