canagarian Posted March 13, 2006 Share Posted March 13, 2006 The interesting thing about the so-called cap hell that everyone says the Redskins are in every year, is that they never are. There are guys on this board that know the salary cap better than any sportswriter out there. If you read their posts every year, you can see that the team has never been in danger of any salary cap hell any year including this one even prior to the new CBA. If you pay attention to sportswriters, the same ones that keep Monk and Irvin out of the HOF, then by all means keep repeating their ill-informed biased mantra. None of them are qualified to be GMs, Head Coaches or contract negotiators. They just write their opinions and you know what they say about those. You are what your record says you are; and since Gibbs has returned, the team is as good as anytime since Snyder bought the team. Gibbs is acting as chief talent evaluator. Snyder, who understands the CBA as good as anyone, acts as chief contract negotiator and they have been able to put better teams on the field since Gibbs has returned. Now that they have Williams and Saunders running things on the field on a play by play basis, they have a long term plan installed after Gibbs leaves as Head Coach and becomes solely a GM/talent evaluator. What is the long-term plan for the Cowboys? I am not saying their isn't one, but it is crystal clear what the Redskins are doing. Everyone in Gibbs' first year said the game had passed him by. At least he was able to humble himself and bring in people with new ideas and try new things last year. This year he is doing the same. He posted the best division record (5-1) they have had in a long time and almost had them in the NFC championship game. They are not a Super Bowl caliber team yet, but you are what your record says you are. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
