Oddly enough, all of a sudden I find myself getting fired up for football season!!
Only a few weeks to wait until pre-season! Maybe we should do this lockout thing EVERY year!!
Uh....I think I'll pass on that one if it's o.k.
That's a lot for a 32 year old who's had a lot of hammy and groin injuries the past 3-4 years - at least in my book.
And the problem wasn't going after an Eagles QB - it was going after the WRONG Eagles QB.
And actually - the answer on that front is probably easy. The Eagles wouldn't trade Kolb to an inter-division rival
Boone, I have to say I don't quite agree with the bolded part of your statement. As I mentioned in another post, Andy Reid has a type of "magic" when it comes to getting the most out of a QB. McNabb was one, Vick is another, and I'd be willing to wager that another team, be it the Redskins or not, wouldn't be able to get the same level of performance out of Kolb that Reid can. I think the strategy being employed likely leans toward the idea of enhancing the support structure, OL, RBs, DL, maybe a WR before going after a franchise type QB. Grabbing a QB in FA would actually surprise me a bit.
Orton? a possible but I am leaning toward him probably winding up in Arizona-this being subject to the chaos that is FA, of course.
Another thing-I have pretty much concluded that Shanny is completely serious about Beck. I think he really believes he can make John Beck into a viable starting QB. And as we both know, Shanny can be a bit...uh...stubborn...when he's made up his mind on something.
