Anyways, per The Post (emphasis mine):
The deal essentially comes out to trading Lance Briggs for the value of the #16 pick of the draft. That Lance Briggs the player is worth at least as much as that pick in any given draft is unquestionable; he's a Pro Bowl talent that would improve almost any defense by his presence. And he would improve the Redskins defense. But moving down to get him is like putting a bandaid on a headache. Linebacker is not a need and Rocky McIntosh already cost us 3 draft picks to select -- let's see what the kid can do. Weak side linebacker sees the field relatively infrequently in Gregg Williams defense and Rocky's contract is far cap-friendlier than Lance Briggs would be. I'd take McIntosh as the bargain, here (or even Lemar Marshall).
I've made this point elsewhere, but going strong after Briggs is evidence that the team lacks confidence in Rocky McIntosh. Bringing in London Fletcher is evidence that we lack confidence in Lemar Marshall. Warrick Holdman didn't deserve confidence in the first place. We would already have our Pro Bowl linebacker had we simply paid Antonio Pierce; instead he walked. Cumulatively there isn't any indication that the Redskins know anything about Linebackers. This should cast significant doubt on our scouting reports of Lance Briggs which presumably have driven our interest (unless we're simply swooning).
