Why the team that doesn't take drafting seriously and thinks they can buy their way to wins.
But of course, that wasn't the topic what was discussed by NYC. Of course, he was talking about our first round pick, not the entire draft. But you still had to come in with something irrelevent to what was being discussed between me and him just to come in with a bash of the team.
I can offer plenty.
The Redskins should have attacked this draft as aggressively as they could.
But they didn't.
They reacted like cowards.
There is a Groupthink process going on with your team and you might not even notice it.
I fault Jerry Jones at times. And even he has not become overcome by hubris just yet.
What has Daniel Snyder learned as an owner?
What has the entire franchise learned?
The days of the "Over the Hill Gang" cannot be replicated with high price tags in free agents.
It is now the "Overpriced Gang" and instead of winning, they lose and continue a syndrome.
The same draft mentality exists now that exists in Gibbs' previous regime more than 20 years ago.
It was a fortunate time for your team. You had some home runs and were able to overcome a lot of bad trades. You also benefitted from mining the USFL.
Now, you are pathetic shells trying to pretend to play the same game.
The only way you will ever rebuild the Redskins is to draft better players. Not sit around and convince yourselves that marginal players are great and think that you can just hit with what handful of choices you do have.
And until your owner realizes it, you will spin your wheels.
Now, back to what NYC said. I would also like to add to what i posted before, that Sean Taylor isn't even a strong safety, he is a free safety. So this would ultimatly bring down his entire theory of drafting for need, because, in fact, we do have a hole at the SS position.
Good luck with that pass rush.
I look forward to seeing Taylor making boneheaded penalties and Landry's tongue dragging the field because the QB has minutes to throw.
One pass rusher.
That's all you needed.
But like a poor marksman, you missed the target again.
And yet stand up and claim you did.
