bulldog Posted April 24, 2005 Share Posted April 24, 2005 1. The Redskins feel that Phillip Daniels and LaVar Arrington will be healthy enough to start 16 games for us in 2005. Otherwise, that pick at #25 could easily have been at DE or LB. 2. Gibbs meant what he said about the wide receivers. He said that after acquiring Patten and Moss he was comfortable going into 2005 with those two added to the returning players. Not a lot of other people believed him about this point. But we passed up Mike Williams and later Roddy White in today's first round so, believe it 3. Gibbs by making this pick is saying to the fans and ownership that he and his staff (including perhaps a coach in waiting in Gregg Williams) are indeed planning for the longer-term and not just for this season. By all admissions, Campbell won't see the field in 2005 unless there are spate of serious injuries. 4. One of the quarterbacks we have now is going to be released, traded, etc. Campbell won't see the field as a rookie if Gibbs can help it, but the team won't inactivate a #1 draft choice for 16 games and have him sit up in the stands either. He needs to be down on the field seeing, feeling and smelling what it is like to be in the NFL. That to me means that one of three scenarios has to happen: 1. Ramsey is traded in a surprise move for a player selected today or for a pick next year. The odds on this are questionable, but not completely out of the realm of the possible. What if the Lions were willing to deal Mike Williams to the Redskins for Ramsey and a draft choice next year? 2. Brunell is kept until June 2 and then released. This is possible based on any remaining flexibility the Skins have with the cap, etc.. Gardner's status plays in here. 3. As some have mentioned in other posts, perhaps Hasselbeck departs for a late round pick next year. This is also possible if not probable. It will be very interesting to see what happens now. IMO Campbell will be the #2 qb in 2005, the question is behind which other player? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
