Om Posted March 12, 2006 Share Posted March 12, 2006 Here in the middle of a breaking news cycle, when "confirmed" is still a blurry and moving line, I'm getting a kick out of watching some of you magnificent bastiges. Many, even while it's still very much up in the air if Washington has even officially landed Randel El or not, were already yelling from the rooftops that we "overpaid!" for the guy. We did? Meaning what exactly ... that we're headed for "cap hell?" That we've already blown the '06 offseason by only adding WR's and overlooking other needs? I think some of you need a Corona. If the whole CBA affair taught us anything, it should have been that our team actually has a clue. That it actually knows how to both plan for and cover contingencies. Seriously ... are we really thinking, just a few days after the team had a dozen key players voluntarily restructure to clear room so that the team could BE a team because it matters to the players as well as the rest of us, and after seeing the team release only a few guys who were going to get released anyway, that now the team is simply blowing out the checkbook on a particular guy or position at the expense of other needs? I dunno guys ... seems to me this team's earned a little more faith than that of late. Oh, and I see where some are upset Andre Carter left w/o a contract. As if perhaps the Skins don't understand as well as we fans do the need to add a pass rushing DE. Well ... is it possible, just for sake of discussion, that the Skins had a number in mind for this particular gentleman, and this particular gentleman wanted more? That perhaps we didn't want to ... you know ... overpay for the guy? Just sayin.' Breathe, my friends. Enjoy the game, but like the coaches all say, let the game come to you. Dont overrun the play.
