Add another Redskins player to the trade block

R. McIntosh.jpgThis is shaping up to be transformational week for the Redskins.

We knew Albert Haynesworth and Jason Campbell were available in trades, and now it sounds like Rocky McIntosh can be added to the mix.

Jason Reid of the Washington Post talked to McIntosh, who has decided to skip this weekend’s minicamp.  Asked if he asked for a trade, McIntosh laughed and said, “Ah, that’s between me and them.”

The weak-side linebacker also said he hoped his situation was “resolved” soon. 

McIntoshed seemed to doubt that he could get the contract extension he wants in Washington.  (That makes sense; he’s not a great fit for a 3-4 defense.)

We’ll find out soon enough if another team is more generous.

    That guy hasn’t done dick since he went to Washington. Ship his ass off too!

  2. WarrenMoonGOAT says: Apr 16, 2010 2:37 PM

    why isn’t he a great fit for a 3-4 defense Gregg?

    I read this a few hours ago on extremeskins, I guess you should sign up.

    Why the hell are the Redskins switching to the 3-4 if none of their personnel fits the system?

  5. RIP__21 says: Apr 16, 2010 2:41 PM

    I’m still baffled as to why these morons insist on switching to a 3-4 when they have the personnel to effectively run a 4-3. Offense is what needs to be blown up, not the D.

  6. FlyEaglesFly82 says: Apr 16, 2010 2:41 PM

    Maybe its time the Deadskins trade one of thier players to the Eagles! We could use another linebacker. This whole inter-divisional exchange seems to be gaining popularity among the NFL teams.

    Those poor little underpaid NFL players.

  9. Andre_Johnson_for_prez says: Apr 16, 2010 2:50 PM

    Well, you know whats coming… This guy would be an upgrade at weakside lb for the texans at the right price. Maybe he could get his career back on track.

    Because Shanahan isn’t as smart as everyone thinks?

  11. MagicMan407 says: Apr 16, 2010 2:56 PM

    I dont know why they have to mess with the defense so much? They should be adding a few pieces not sending them away. Hes going to turn the Redskins into the Broncos who had bad defenses and good offenses.

  12. MagicMan407 says: Apr 16, 2010 2:56 PM

    Get A Job,
    They want to mess up a good defense.

  13. Skins Fan says: Apr 16, 2010 2:57 PM

    Get A Job, thats a great question. Shanny seems hellbent on switching to a 34 def. Honestly, Shanny doesn’t appear to be much different than the mgt we’ve had in the past. Picking up players that are past their prime & switching systems that don’t fit the personnel. There hasn’t been a plan here in many years & I’m not sure thats going to change. I’ll wait & see what happens during the draft.

    What? He’s perfect for the 3-4, he’s excellent in coverage, the skins best pass defender in space as a matter of fact, better than Fletcher. Plus he can pressure the passer. Personally I could care less, but this is nothing more than a money issue.
    Say Gregg, do you review what you write before you post it? Because any DC running the 3-4 could fit this guy in their scheme, you just have to worry about that knee.

    Trade his ass to Oakland for Kirk Morrison

    ” why isn’t he a great fit for a 3-4 defense Gregg? ”
    …because he read it somewhere. Not his own thoughts, but he has to sound like he knows what he is talking about, right? Pretty much a 100% of the stuff on this site is parroted & not original on their behalf, of course that is not counting making stuff up, that is 100% sincere.

  18. jan van flac says: Apr 16, 2010 3:02 PM

    Why the hell are the Redskins switching to the 3-4 if there defense was their only bright spot last year?

  19. BigMikeSkinsFan says: Apr 16, 2010 3:02 PM

    thats your reason for him asking for a trade? just because he hasnt signed his tender and skipped mini camp?
    you’re as big of a joke as florio

  20. Douchebaggery says: Apr 16, 2010 3:08 PM

    The Bears wanted him pretty badly a couple years ago, iirc.

  21. damnriver63 says: Apr 16, 2010 3:08 PM

    Because we have a former failed head coach as a defensive coordinator…we let gre williams get away and now look what he has done for new orleans….geniuses here in dc….best offseason team in history

  22. PortisPocketsSTR8 says: Apr 16, 2010 3:08 PM

    Portis Pockets Straight!!!!

  23. VernonK says: Apr 16, 2010 3:16 PM

    Love to seem him in midnight green… He has pretty good coverage skills for a linebacker and the Eagles need *someone* to be able to cover a tight end.

  24. anjelmanning says: Apr 16, 2010 3:21 PM

    Alot of bitter, unhappy fans around here… Lol, you hate it so much then why come?

  25. ☻☼CBS, FOX, ESPN, NFLN nbc says: Apr 16, 2010 3:27 PM

    Gregg, have you ever seen Roger “Rocky” McIntosh play in the 34 system? Since that answer is ‘no’, how do you deduce that
    “he’s not a great fit for a 3-4 defense”?

  26. Abe Froeman says: Apr 16, 2010 3:27 PM

    @The Polish Rifle
    I don’t think the men who write the articles here ever claimed to be scouts or anyone with any great depth of knowledge for Xs and Os. They are media commentators, and media aggregators who happen to perform a job well enough that people like you (and me) are here to read what they write. So your chiding them for not being something they never claimed to be is each comes off as petty and bitter.
    Perhaps you should refrain from spending time here if you dislike it so.

  27. gurnblanston says: Apr 16, 2010 3:32 PM

    I have tried to be supportive and withhold judgment as the first quasi-professional GM/coach tandem in Washington since 1992 attempts to change the culture of futile excess that typifies the Little Danny era, but it is becoming difficult.
    The defense certainly needs to adopt a more aggressive attack focused on turnovers and third-down execution. The turnover numbers and third-down percentage have been anemic as the defense consistently ranks high under the NFL’s misleading yardage-based ranking system. But, the defense did keep a junior varsity offense in many games that should have been blowouts. Anybody remember losing to the Cowgirls by a barn-burning score of 7-6?
    But, this obsession with the 3-4 base defense better produce Steeler-like numbers for former Steeler assistant Haslett or the team will regress in the one, single area that has been competitive over the last few years.
    Shanahan and Haslett are gambling big in their bids at redemption and have only two years to show impressive results or their decision not to become younger will again leave Redskins fans with an aged, underachieving team with no hope for the near future.
    I like the McNabb and RBs moves if they are accompanied by a strong effort in the draft and free agency to address the o-line, but the defensive moves so far leave little room for error and less room for optimism. Hail!

    The Bears tried to make him apart of the package for a potential trade with Lance Briggs. That was what? This guy’s 2nd year in the league?
    Glad we kept Lance though, I think he only hit his best level of play the past two seasons and we weren’t going to get great value for him in that trade to Washington.

  29. boysroll says: Apr 16, 2010 3:43 PM

    why r we even talking about this? they will finish last every yr and then rat boy and co will be canned after 2 yrs…nothing will ever change with this joke of an org with that midget circus owner running..LMFAO.
    HOW BOUT THOSE COWBOYS!!!!!

  30. chipwade says: Apr 16, 2010 3:53 PM

    Who is the last team to successfully switch to the 3-4? You hear about teams switching year after year and shipping off players that don’t fit.

  31. WhoDat_OH says: Apr 16, 2010 4:05 PM

    So now you ‘Skins fans have to try and figure out Haslett. Good luck with that. Oh, and thanks for letting GW (Gregg Williams) be available for us. And boysroll, thank you for Sean Payton. And most of all thanks both for the Lonbardi !!

  32. DanSnyder says: Apr 16, 2010 4:20 PM

    boysroll you really make your fellow cowboys all seem retarded. Do your fellow fans a favor and stfu.

  33. stunzeed2 says: Apr 16, 2010 4:39 PM

    I laugh at all who question a Superbowl winning coach and his intentions.
    I laugh at Cowboys fans regardless; they can’t help their disabilities. Even though 75% of their fans are bandwagon and never stepped foot in Texas. The other 25% are clinically braindead. Pretty pathetic stat for a pathetic team.
    But hey, ole’ stretch-face keeps sucking money from em’……
    This has been a pretty funny day all around.

  34. MagicMan407 says: Apr 16, 2010 4:54 PM

    dansnyder,
    Agreed! Boysroll is an idiot!

  35. myeaglescantwin says: Apr 16, 2010 5:06 PM

    WAHINGTON SUCKS. even haynesworth dont like it there and he seems easy to please. Any stadium that is surrounded by fast food joints would be where he wants to get traded to.
    The farther south you go the fatter people get , right until the florida border.

  36. hrmlss says: Apr 16, 2010 5:06 PM

    They are going to the 3-4 because they want the #1 pick next year to take Jake Locker the QB from Washington.

  37. pmpott says: Apr 16, 2010 5:14 PM

    Trade ‘em all–all these guys who don’t want to be here. Make sure Carlos Rogers is included.

  38. doubldipp says: Apr 16, 2010 5:49 PM

    Shanahan making it his team, thats ok they were’nt winning before lets see whatcha got Mike.
    put a good team together.

    ” So your chiding them for not being something they never claimed to be is each comes off as petty and bitter. ”
    OK, well how do you explain the below quote, jack ass?
    ” (That makes sense; he’s not a great fit for a 3-4 defense.) ”
    You are the blind sheep following the herd. You are the person not smart enough to think for himself. You are the person who can’t see the forest through the trees.
    If telling it like it is, is ‘petty’ & ‘bitter’ then so be it, but I would rather be considered that, then be considered a programmed sheep like you, who sticks up for liars & frauds rather then the person who calls them out(me).

    “he can pressure the passer …Say Gregg, do you review what you write before you post it? Because any DC running the 3-4 could fit this guy in their scheme, you just have to worry about that knee.”
    Really, because 3-4 co-ordinators are always looking for outside linebacker in the 230lbs region with 5 sacks in a 4-year pro career.
    He is a little bit undersized for the 4-3 that we’ve played. He has been a decent player for 3-years, but he isn’t a pass rusher. He isn’t even great in coverage, just decent. The fact that he was our best cover linebacker had more to do with the fact that two of our linebackers were converted defensive ends.
    I am sure Haslett could do something with Macintosh, but he isn’t a great fit for a 3-4 defence and he is showing signs of expecting a contract far in excess of what his pro-career merits.

  41. cwinckler says: Apr 16, 2010 6:29 PM

    Saints fans should be thanking the NFL for the Lombardi! They are the ones who employed the refs who gave them the NFC Championship…certainly not the Redskins..GWs defense was torched!

  42. daskeenz says: Apr 16, 2010 6:30 PM

    boysrolll you are a moron…….. how bout those cowboys?? are you REALLY in a position to be commenting on ownership right now? Dont throw stones when your 1.5 billion dollar house is made of glass…. ohh and keep up the nervous beaking. It kinda like when your little brother comes home from military school and can kick the $hit out of you now.

  43. Abe Froeman says: Apr 16, 2010 6:37 PM

    My my Polish Rifle, I don’t think anything else you could have written would have provided a better example of the caustic petty attitude of which I originally spoke.
    Did you really throw out a bunch of rhetoric that is completely irrelevant and hope that you come off as sounding like some glorious crusader righting wrongs and exposing corruption?
    Buddy, you tried to make fun of blog writer for a football news aggregator website. You’re not exactly triumphing over evil for the greater good.
    All the writer of the article did was pass along an analysis that has been accepted by the media as the reason for this move. It was not cited, but that is the SOP for this website.
    Nevertheless, it’s been great fun having this little chat with you, and I look forward to the next time you plant your foot so firmly in your mouth. Have a great weekend.

  44. DeeDubb says: Apr 16, 2010 7:28 PM

    McIntosh is a solid, young LB and another reason why switching to the 3-4 makes NO sense. The 3-4 defense is a fad and it makes me sick that the Redskins have jumped on the bandwagon. True the defense has been lacking in it’s turnover impact over the last few years but they also have been in the top 10 the last 2 years. Hears a thought, instead of leaning on that top 10 defense to do more, why not establish a consistent offense for a change? I know…it makes too much damn sense.

  45. dakotah says: Apr 16, 2010 7:48 PM

    i don’t know if McIntosh is good for a 3-4 defense but i wonder why everybody in the nfl thinks that the 3-4 defense is the only way to win. Somebody may think that three of four 2009 conference finalist use 4-3 defense, only the Jets are 3-4. To have good defense you must have good players 4-3 or 3-4 make no difference at all.

    Do your Mom and Dad know your on the computer when it appears to be well past your bedtime little boy?
    Did somebody tell u writing in caps is what men do when they have a point to make and they fear they wont be heard?
    Chill kid. Your not as tough as you think you are.

  48. Jamzy says: Apr 17, 2010 12:55 AM

    Rocky is an average LB at best. It must be tough to make millions and still it ain’t enough. Get rid of the pollution that has contaminates the locker room.
    Trade Rocky for pick
    Trade Fat Albert for picks
    Trade Simple Jason for pick
    Wee Mikey is building a team…not a bunch of me first players

    Hey dakotah, you dont hear about dan snyder talking like a drunken ass very often dip sh!t!

  50. bison4me2010 says: Apr 17, 2010 1:27 AM

    @Boysroll I believe for the past 15 or so years the Redskins have won the same amount of the championships as your poser team…ZERO. As a matter of fact since 1996 you have finished above them in the standings 7 times and in the same time period the Redskins have finished 7 times above the ‘girls. The only glaring difference is the Redskins have three playoff wins during that time period to your 1. If anybody should be doing any talking in the NFC East its Eagle fans, but then again they have just as many championships as Skins and ‘Girls. So I guess the Giants fans can talk.

  51. Mooch says: Apr 17, 2010 9:45 AM

    Do Skins fans think that the tam should have waited and traded for Rothlesberger? Would have cost more, but you’d have gotten a winner who had 8 years or so left. Way better than what you have now. As long as you do not mind the PR aspect, which I am sure Snyder and Shanahan would have overlooked.
