Washington Redskins...

...I'm saddened to report that it looks like we've completely gone in the wrong direction. Losing Chris Samuels for possibly his career is hard. Randy Thomas is also not worth much of anything anymore. He can't stay healthy at all. Derrick Dockery doesn't seem like the guy he was when we had him before.

Jason Campbell is still a good quarterback, but I'm done defending him in the West Coast Offense. He's clearly not meant for this offense. He needs a line, continuity in a system, a run game that can flourish with the line, and the ability to pass deep more often off of playaction. But in this system, with this line... he won't amount to anything. Neither will Collins or Brennan though.

The O-Line is in shambles. We need to go young, real young. Maybe trade vets for some draft picks. We need to give these guys a shot to grow together and become a unit like up in New York, Indianapolis, New England, New Orleans, etc.

Antwan Randle El is a joke. This guy used to be cool. He was a playmaker. Now he's dropping open passes and letting punts bounce off his helmet. He's muffed more times this season than he did in his career prior to this year. And when he does hold on to a punt, it's rare that he goes anything more than 10 yards, and even that is a blessing.

And talking about special teams... I'm tired of seeing us play pass-zone on FG defense. We should be sending 11 guys through a 9 man line to try and block FG's, especially on 4th and long from 40+ yards out.

Defensively, I'd grab an OLB, or another DE for the shuffle. If you grab an OLB, put Orakpo at DE because he is serious business with his hand in the dirt. Guys like Daniels, Jarmon, Wynn need to be rotated more often just for multiple looks. At Corner, I'd keep Rogers, but ask him to jam WR's a bit more, because that's what he was good at. This is a contract year, he needs to play like it, not slack off because he wants to be like DeAngelo Hall.

And Vinny Cerrato - he needs to go. He's not gotten results in his tenure here. Believe it or not, Gibbs got the job done on his own, not with Vinny. Vinny has set this team up for failure, miserably. We don't have any chemistry on offense. Jim Zorn is not the problem, personnel is, and Cerrato has been the guy who has failed to give us the personnel to set us up for success.
