  1. OK, so what you’re really trying to say is “there is absolutely nothing at all happening with regard to the Houston Texans on Monday of draft week”?

  2. I’m fine with what Landry said…as long as we bring in a true Free Safety and move Landry back to his original position of Strong Safety.
    BTW…Landry SUCKS as a Free Safety since we lost Sean Taylor to those MF’ing thugs.
    I am all for the Skins drafting Eric Barry. My #1 pick, unless Suh falls to us.

  3. The Redskins need to address the offensive line. Russell Okung or Trent Williams would look great in a Skins jersey. Agree that no way minny take Tebow so early. Bryan Price or Kareem Robinson make more sense…

  4. I have to agree: Skins SHOULD take a LT but the real problem is, will they? Let’s get real, is there anything in this class or next year’s class that’s going to make sense at QB?
    THIS class was supposed to be much stronger than last year’s class and now that it’s here, all the talk is about how weak this year’s is and that next year’s class is stronger. This year took a hit because of the injury to Bradford, who was EASILY the top pick before the season started and McCoy and Snead didn’t have the kind of years that many felt would make this class so strong.
    In the meantime, the guy that Mel and others will target for the top next year, Locker, is only in his second year in a pro style offense (Can you say, Brady Quinn? The parallels are there: both started as freshmen for Ty and both saw a different coach come in and change the offense and their mechanics as juniors AND until LSU killed the Irish, Quinn was everyone’s favorite for the top QB spot).
    I think that a QB pick this year or next would spend a year or more on Shanahan’s bench because of McNabb. Donovan may not be a spring chicken but he’s dealt with not having great blockers and he’ll keep the ball away from the other team. He can do for the Skins what Kitna did for the Bengals and the team can afford to be patient with the guy that they annoint as their next franchise QB.
