Greetings to everyone. The bye week is upon us and the fans are revolting against the owner, coaches, and several players. It’s an ugly scene out there, but BBQ is here to try and make some sense of it all. This week, there will be two blogs as we try to dissect this current train wreck in the making.

Q1: It is time to take a look at college prospects. BGO members are invited to chime in with their thoughts. Here is the first question. The Redskins have no first rounder in the next two drafts. Should they trade down with their second rounder and acquire more picks?
A: It makes perfect sense to take advantage of every opportunity to acquire extra picks when possible. The Redskins could move further down in the second round and add a third rounder in the process. This would yield picks in the second, third, third, fourth, fifth, fifth, sixth, seventh, and seventh rounds. All too often, a few blue chippers fall to the second and third rounds and having extra opportunities to acquire these studs is a chance worth taking.

Q2: Later this week, BBQ will take a look at specific draft prospects. BBQ believes that the draft should focus on safety, cornerback, right tackle, defensive tackle, and tight end. Do you have any preferences? Are there other positions that we should target? Feel free to weigh in. Consideration will be given to your opinions.
A: Although a mock draft is not asked for in this blog, feel free to submit one if you are so inclined. Talk about your favorite prospects and what kind of impact could they have with the Redskins.

Q3: Free Agency will merit some consideration as well. This week, we will focus on who should stay with the Redskins and who should receive walking papers. What are your choices?
A: BBQ is sure to get a lot of heated debate on this subject, so have at it! Once again, your answers will be featured later this week. Have fun with it.

That is all for the first part of this week’s BBQ.

Hail To The Redskins!

its too early to do a mock, given we have no first rounder and we have so many needs, basically we should take the best available CB, RT, NT or even possibly WR (no im not matt Millen) id prefer CB or NT because great ones rarely show up in free agency. if we get a shot at a great LT you grab him and upgrade both LT and RT with one shot

It's a shame that after spending money on Garcon and Morgan, drafting Leonard Hankerson and having Moss on the team at $4.5M for 2012 that the Redskins still don't seem to have a WR unit that is solid across the board.

This position like safety with all the free agents and draft picks over the past 6-7 years is just a case point in how difficult this franchise has found the personnel side of the equation.

We need to find a real GM that can hire a team of scouts that really know what they are doing AND are then listened to by the decision-makers.

I wonder what kind of difference it would make if a healthy Garcon is in the game. That's just bad luck. It seems like RG3 is so much better with him in the lineup and the receiver corps is better too. We don't have much to go on, but that is the impression I've had in the little time we've seen Pierre on the field.

Ryman, I agree about the WR - but that may come via FA though.

it goes back to my point though - no reliable depth behind the starters. That's what we had under Norv and other coaches/regimes here as well.

this seems to be one of the teams where there is just never that younger player off the bench that comes in and gets a chance and takes off production wise, especially at wide receiver and the defensive backfield.

millions of dollars spent, draft picks used and still looking for answers.

how different might this season have looked with a #3 pick for a CB and a #4 pick for a safety or wide receiver?

right now we have LeRibeus and Kirk Cousins seated firmly on the bench drinking gatorade.

not very productive picks at the moment.

If Kirk sees the field a bit more and shows some talent, it is possible. Stranger things have happened.
