Quite honestly, when we got mike and allen i thought we would be no better then last year. We would probably have grossman as our qb and probably be drafting a qb in this years draft. But since we got McNabb i was expecting a 8-8 record or wild card spot at best, since that is pretty much out of the question. Coming into this season we all knew the o-line needed to be focused on the most and i felt like we kinda accomplished that thru the free agency, but it's still pretty bad.

Uh, pretty sure I said 6-10 before the season.

This team hasn't won a game by so much as a touchdown all year.

About time with Fat Albert. I can see this unfolding now....conduct detrimental to the team, terminate his contract and get some of the bonus $$ back. Skins are doing this the right way....

Read the other day that Moss' contract is up after this year. I don't think he should be re-signed and to me the decision on this will be a test of how smart the new brass is. He's small, drops the ball -- a lot --, is not really very good over the middle, and doesn't have the size or speed to be a great deep guy. I think he's on the declining side of his career arc and he's one of a number of guys on the Redskins who thinks they're better than they actually are just because Danny overpays them.

I've also grown tired of him acting like he's just caught the Super Bowl game-winning touchdown any time (and those times are growing rarer) he makes a catch for a first down. I mean that's his job isn't it? So why act like you've just done something extraordinary when all you've done is what you're supposed to do? But that's been one of the hallmarks of the Danny Era: the Skins consistently overrate themselves, exagerrate any of their fleeting successes, and ignore the causes and implications of their far more frequent failures.

Agreed. He is just a total tool.

At this point I'd almost rather let McNabb go and draft a young QB and start a serious rebuild.

Have to start keeping your draft picks to have a rebuild...

I should have started shorting the skins last week. Damnit, rookie mistake.

What a facking train wreck this team is. Al and the mega drama drama dominates the headlines, but Shanahan is showing a lot of rust this year. He let that drama go on and on for well, about 10 months now. Factoring our pathetic defense or not, he failed in his handling of it. Discipline seems to be his highest priority.

The 3-4 is an epic fail from the start to finish, book it. Trading for the inaccurate oft injured and probably past his prime McNabb, for picks, tanks any potential realistic rebuild coming out of the Vinny for Picks disaster. A 1st and 6th next year lol. Then refusing to get McNabb a line let alone a possession WR or 3rd down back adds the stupidity of bringing him in. Having Parker and LJ in camp was almost laughable. Risking Torrain and Banks to the practice squad was a head scratcher. The only good thing his son has done is pickup a red flag. Our offense is predictable flat and ineffective. The worst was coming out of bye week.

Our only glimmer of hope this year was Banks, Armstrong, and the rocket scientist that moved Landry to SS.

I'm guessing once they realized the Rams weren't trading the #1 they figured McNabb was the best short-term solution.

I expect them to draft his replacement in a few months.

QB is one of many holes.

Well as of today here are the teams currently ahead of the Skins in the draft order and a number of them could use a franchise QB:

9 - Washington Redskins
8 - Dallas Cowboys
7 - San Francisco 49ers - Needs a QB
6 - Arizona Cardinals - Needs a QB BIGTIME
5 - Denver Broncos - Needs a QB, Tebow was a McDaniels pick and McDaniels is gone.
4 - Buffalo Bills - Might need a QB. Fitzpatrick has looked good all season.
3 - Cincinnati Bengals - Might need a QB, the bloom is off the Carson Palmer rose.
2 - Detroit Lions
1 - Carolina Panthers - Needs a QB, because Clausen (compared to Bradford) looks like ****.

Of the teams ahead of the Skins in the draft order today, which ones will win more games than the Skins if you assume the Skins will not win another one? Broncos, Bills, Bengals, and 49ers maybe? That still leaves two teams in the Cardinals and Panthers that need a franchise QB worse than the Skins. And as things stand Luck and Newton are the only two QB's worth picking in the top 10. That means trading picks/players to either for a chance to move up.

Me personally, I would like to see the Skins use their first two picks on O-linemen. Its desperately needed, but if not at least save the 2nd round pick for a QB like Jake Locker out of Washington or Ryan Mallet out of Arkansas.

denver isn't drafting a qb, they picked tebow first round last year. the /ew coach will give him a few years atleast.

mcnabb is on pace for 4200 yeards without a wr or running game, or offensive line. he's the problem.

Looking at the ESPN QB rankings:

Andrew Luck QB 6'4" 235 Stanford 98 1 1
Ryan Mallett QB 6'6¾" 238 Arkansas 90 2 27
Cam Newton QB 6'5½" 248 Auburn 89 3 29
Jake Locker QB 6'2½" 229 Washington 88 4 32
Blaine Gabbert QB 6'5" 240 Missouri 83 5 51

Last number is the overall ranking. Looks like Locker has fallen down compared to last year.

The main thing is the Skins will probably not be in a position to draft a QB that is worth a damn so why do it? Right now they have one O-linemen worth keeping (Trent Williams) and the D-line is substandard as well. The O-line needs the most attention, but I would really like to see this next draft devoted to linemen one way or the other.

Luck looks like he's going to be a heck of a stud.


however, they need things for like 8 other positions so it doesn't really matter.

214 rushing yards so far. Impressive? or is TB D line that bad?
