Redskins – Fact or Fiction?

I don’t like much that Peter King has to say.  But, I’ve always found his Things I Think I Know articles intriguing.  Here are a few things I think I know about the Redskins.

LaRon Landry – at Deep Safety, he’s too much of a liability to keep him back there.  He’s easy to fake out, and teams know it.  When he blows coverage, it’s 6 points.

Quinton Ganther – what a fire plug this guy is.   He’s everything Trung Canidate never was.

Clinton Portis – he should sit the rest of the season and get healthy.  Then, he should be traded for whatever the Skins can get for him.  Marcus Mason and Ganther are developing nicely.  They compliment Rock Cartwright and LaDell Betts well.

The offensive line – they’re jelling.  Still, the Skins will have to address the O-line in the draft.

H.B. Blades – either the Redskins believe he’s ready to step into the starting role at Middle Linebacker or he’s simply not ready.  In the latter case, they need to draft London Fletcher’s successor next year.  They have two seasons tops to identify their next MLB.

Malcolm Kelly, Devin Thomas, and Fred Davis – they haven’t arrived, but they appear to be on their way to justifying their respective selections.  Thomas has shown the most, followed by Davis and then Kelly.

Carlos Rogers – trade bait.

Fred Smoot – I love Smoot, but retirement should be on his mind.

Shawn Suisham – it’s bizarre to have to say there will be a kicking competition next spring, since the guy has only missed 3 field goals.  Timing is everything.  I hate Dallas.  There will be a kicking competition next spring.

Hunter Smith – chain him to his locker after the season.

    Well Landry put on the show which included Taylor and Area 51!! Big 6 or not the incredible interception with the incredible fumble hand-off and Suisham’s miss fro 29 are the difference between a loss and a blow out!

    Its time to find out what we have in our draft picks and playing time is the only way. Portis and Randle El should be gone – Cerrato is a definate. Cooley and Rogers could be trade bait

    rob sahm = Merry Christmas it is.

    dbach – I wouldn’t off-load Cooley,
