I struggle with this because of all of the drama that comes along with him and the well known fact that he is pretty lazy BUT i read recently in an article (don't remember where) that he was clocked running a 4.3 40. That just seems crazy fast for an old geezer in his 30's, if this is true should we be interested? like most fans, i am over buying old vets and hoping we can plug them in, i think getting younger is the only hope we have of winning the big one again. However, I do think it is pretty obvious that we need someone else with some raw speed at WR and my guess is there is not as many teams interested as Moss and his agent want us all to believe, is it worth pulling the trigger on a one year deal and see what he can do? My guess is he can be bought for cheap and if we trade up those would be the only reasons i would even consider it.
Assuming that the Redskins trade up and get RG3 and lose a draft pick or two, we are still hurting at WR. What do we do? Trade for Colston? My guess is the Saints will do whatever they can within reason to keep him. I think Manningham is in the same boat. I am sure by now everyone has heard Randy Moss wants to make a come back and supposedly there are a "few" teams interested, will one of those teams be the Skins?
Now on to Jim Haslett and the incident with rodskins. I am not going to say i don't believe rodskins but i do find it hard to believe that Jim would be stupid enough to talk at length about the things that Redskins country wants to hear to some guy he met at a volleyball tournament. That being said, assuming that conversation was true i am on the fence with Flynn even though Jim said they were not interested. He did have a good supporting cast but it is hard ignore 480 yards, Stafford had a lot of yards that game too though. I am on the fence about Peyton also,ultimately i don't think it is the best idea but you cant deny who Peyton is and what he can do. I remember a game a few years ago (i think they played Oakland) where the colts literally had the ball for like 4 minutes the entire game and won it, it was all Peyton. Again, like my thoughts on Randy if the price is right and the deal is short at the very least he can mentor our future QB and we can cross our fingers.
All of that being said, i hope we trade up for RG3, i hear all this talk about Tannehill but my biggest issue with him is he is missing the combine because of foot surgery, to me that is a red flag, are we going to have another Landry on our hands? If RG3 is not an option i am hoping some QB's really shine in the combine so we could stay where we are or trade down. We all have to remember that even if for some strange reason we dont get RG3, Tannehill or Weeden, Tom Brady was the 199th pick over all. Just saying.
What about RB? I like Helu and Royster (Helu more than Royster) and where they are headed but is Hightower a keeper? I mainly have health concerns with him and last season i never really saw the great RB we all hoped for. He had some good games but i never really saw the explosiveness we expected or need on offense. I think we should start looking at David Wilson from Va Tech, he is very explosive and i think he could be a great RB for us, he might be gone by time we have a chance to take him though.
