Hat tip: Extreme Skins.
Mike Florio is zee guy who runs Pro Football Talk and thus is largely responsible for spreading rumors that, as often as not, end up being true. I like PFT and Mike Florio for what he contributes to the Football news/rumor community. Others don't. To each his/her own.
Anyways, Mike and Matt Miller threw together some 2007 Draft Needs for each team and saw fit to comment on Your Washington Redskins. And as that's what I do, I'll comment on their comment. Hopefully some of you will comment on my comment of their comment.
When it comes down to it, we simply believe that owner Dan Snyder can't resist the urge to make a big splash.
Unless I morph Dan Snyder into Major League's Rachel Phelps (the owner who purposefully tries to drive the Indians into the ground), then I have to at least presume good faith by Dan. And good faith doesn't make a splash just to make a splash, it makes a splash to increase one's odds of winning. And nothing about the JeMarcus Russell rumors (to name one) indicates a rational attempt to improve the team.
Or if the lack of sense such a move didn't compel me against those rumors, perhaps it was that time Vinny Cerrato explicitly denied it. But it turns out to be an irrelevant point to Mike and Matt:
The Redskins also would be wise to add a developmental quarterback, in the event that they conclude that Jason Campbell isn't the long-term answer at the position. (Our guess is that they already have.)
All in all a fine assessment by PFT except for their uncharacteristic whiff on Pierson Prioleau. Post your own comments (of my comments on his comments) below.
