Re: NFL Offseason Discussion

McNabb to Redskins for the 37th pick in 2010 and either a third or fourth round pick in 2011.

What exactly were the Eagles thinking trading him to a division rival?

Great for the Skins, WTF for the Eagles.

I don't follow the Skins closely enough to know whether Jason Campbell was actually a bad QB or bad because he had no support but he probably needs a change of scenery to succeed at this point.

As for the Eagles, I hope they have something planned at QB because I'm pretty sure Kolb isn't going to cut it if they want to be better than 5-11. Unless they have some big trade planned, the best they can hope for is Kolb gets used to the system quickly (still not sure what "emergence" ESPN.com is referring to) or a bigtime Vick revival (not bloody likely).

That was fucking dumb. Kolb looked decent sometimes and not so much others. Either way, he's clearly not McNabb. And, either way, there's no way you should trade any pro bowl player to a division rival.

God the whole thing is stupid. Slightly better for the Redskins, although I assume he's only staying for one year.

Re: NFL Offseason Discussion

And the 49ers let another QB go away in order to put their trust in Alex Smith?

Why is York so afraid to make moves newsworthy and which might be in the best interest of the team as well as PR for fans.

More than happy with this trade, as this puts an end to that trade rumor with the Raiders.

Now, unless old Al Davis drafts a quaterback, you can rest assured that with Jamarcus Russell at the helm, they'll continue in their mediocrity. Hence ensuring a good position for their 2011 first round draft pick we acquired from them in the Seymour trade

Here's a pretty interesting little article about what went into sending him to Washington.

Re: NFL Offseason Discussion

First Houston becomes Denver South by bringing in a lot of Denver coachs, now Washington becomes Denver/Houston East by bring in coaches (and former coaches) from both teams.

I'll be keeping an eye on Washington this year, not only because they are on the Texans schedule, but because little Shanny is now their OC. Washington took another of Houston's coachs as well, but it was a positional coach and I can't remember which one.

Yes.

As a Redskins fan...I want to be happy...but not sure how this will work out for the 'Skins. Hopefully a trip to the Superbowl...but I am not holding my breath.

^Thus far, nowhere, but I think that they might be on to something this year.

Re: NFL Offseason Discussion

I see things turning around with McNabb...keeping key guys healthy will be paramount to having success...'Skins are deep at RB which is good.

Having an O-line would help keep him healthy. The guy used to be the scramble king, but when he thinks he has a deep pass, he'll hang onto that ball even if it means a sack (the good news is he never really tries to force it, so you won't give up too many interceptions). The bad news is he's been Donovan McGlass for the last couple of years.

Re: NFL Offseason Discussion

Kind of depends on who's calling the offense. Little Shanny likes to throw a lot. When Kubiac ran the offense in Houston, he constantly tried to run whether we had a decent running back or not. When Little Shanny started calling the plays as OC, the Texans offense went pass crazy. Of course it helps if you have Andre Johnson, which Washington doesn't have anyone close to.

I'm wondering what Washington does with Fat Albert? I hear they want him to be a nose tackle in a 3-4. That will be a disaster. Fat Albert plays hard about half of his plays and only does that about half the games he's in.
