bulldog Posted May 28, 2005 Share Posted May 28, 2005 1. Signing Shawn Springs, 29, to a free agent contract before the 2004 season. National media idiots thought the Skins gave him too much and should have waited to sign Bobby Taylor. Well, Taylor at 32 now appears shot while Springs had close to a pro bowl season. Springs won't be the one released June 1 2. Signing Cornelius Griffin, 27, from the Giants. Again, the $8 million bonus was considered by the ESPN crowd as being typical Redskins overspending. Meanwhile, the team 'should' have signed John Thornton or Bryan Robinson. Griffin was a pro bowl alternate while Thornton is competing for a DT spot in Cincinnati (home of the 27th ranked defense) and Robinson was in Miami for a cup of coffee visit before signing with the same Bengals to compete for a bench position at age 30. Sometimes the best deals are the ones that are NOT done By the way, I am still waiting for Danny Wuerffel's 3,700 yard, 30 touchdown breakout season in the NFL (Peter King) and for a retraction from Pat Kirwan from last preseason that the Redskins had one of the worst defensive lines in the NFL.
