News and Notes

Last Chance at College Football
BCS Championship game is playing as I type this blog. If you're a Skins fans and are looking at O-linemen, now might be a good time to watch.

PFW Redskin Rumor
There has been a lot of discussion about the fate of Shawn Springs as well as other older players on the Skins and their cap ramifications. Pro Football Weekly however has an interesting tidbit in their Whispers section (link at end of post) as they report that Springs may stay with the Skins and remain a corner. Why you ask? Well, PFW is reporting that the Skins may try to trade Carlos Rogers to get more draft picks. The Skins currently only have 4 picks (1, 3, 5, 6) in the upcoming 2009 draft. I'm not a cap guy by any stretch, but I'd rather trade Springs (with 1 year left) for a 2nd or a 3rd (he's worth that IF he can stay healthy) and keep Rogers, Smoot and Hall as a tandem. And of course good corners are needed by a few teams.

Bye-Bye Dallas Bad Boys
You probably know by now that the Cowboys released Pac-Man Jones. It's also been reported that the Cowboys probably will not re-sign Tank Johnson. Don't let the stories fool you about bad character.......blah, blah, blah. Pac-Man got cut b/c he's a headache and wasn't worth the effort in keeping (babysitting) and most importantly he wasn't producing on the field. He was getting beat by receivers and wasn't doing anything special on special teams. Tank Johnson wasn't much of an impact either. Expect more changes coming in Big D.

Does the Media Even Follow the Redskins?
The Redskins Blog has been covering what the media is thinking the Redskins need or should at least look at in off season acquisitions. You can read both articles here and here. Basically, here's the gist: Think of all the positions that the Skins could improve upon. Got your list? If you said Safety and QB, then maybe you should be a sportswriter.

they suggest.......

wait for it........

Brian Dawkins and Mike Vick should be candidates to join the Redskins in 2009. Huh?
Guess they've never heard of Laron Landry and Chris Horton (or Shawn Springs for that matter). And if the fans have issues with Jason Campbell missing open WRs, reading Ds and other things, why would you want Mike Vick? Cult of Colt followers back me up here.......
