Washington Redskins - Quick Fix At Receiver?

Today is cuts day in the NFL. Teams must shorten their roster to 53 players to take into battle with you during the regular season. The Redskins have some clouded decisions to make; many feel it’s working with less than adequate talent.

Today, I wonder if the Redskins don’t shore up their weak receiving corps with some true available talent, making their decisions on cuts a little easier. San Diego Chargers wide-out Vincent Jackson is rumored to be on the trade block, and the Chargers have reportedly allowed him to negotiate with other teams while retaining the right to deny any trade they feel isn’t a good situation (otherwise, not giving him to a surefire contender or rival). It’s rumored they’re asking for a 2nd and 4th round pick, and after acquiring Patrick Crayton in a trade with the Dallas Cowboys Friday, the Chargers seem poised to let Jackson go.

Elsewhere on the West Coast, the Seahawks have told TJ Houshmandzadeh that if they do not find a suitable trade partner (he’s due to make $7 million this season, so teams may not want to deal for him, especially given the next bit), they will be releasing him. I believe that if the Redskins acquire Jackson, they boost their own stock to grab Houshmandzadeh off of the waiver wire.

Jackson already has a rapport with Donovan McNabb, having spent time catching passes during McNabb’s “Hell Week” in Arizona. He’s also familiar with the Redskins’ offense, and would be able to spend his suspension learning the terminology and getting it down.

Houshmandzadeh is leaving Seattle’s West-Coast Offense, also very similar to the Redskins offense, and would figure to be a solid contributor from day one.

While the chances of getting both receivers (or either for that matter) still seems relatively slim since the team has not been open about even thinking of pursuing either prospect… it is a glaring weakness on the roster and would definitely shore up the Redskins and put them in prime position to win immediately. It’s a no-brainer to the fans & others around the league… it remains to be seen whether Shanahan and Allen feel the same way. Only time will tell…

I am disappointed by this. Microsoft has abandoned millions of customers worldwide in favor of their newly acquired toy, Skype. They flaunt it as a merger but the merging process is reported widespread to be faulty and does not transition your contact. They also have not yet ado…

You Must Be The Greatest!

"The irony was not lost on me: the man my trials had molded me into, was the master I'd spent all these years trying to find. I was lost and alone, awash with despair. I sought mentorship, I sought guidance- I'd fallen to my knees and begged for it. And now, there is no other way to say it, than to say I'd been blinded by suffering; I just could not see that my many struggles had been the hands sculpting me into the guide I'd sought. Where I once sought from others their forgiveness for my failures, I now forgive myself, and seek to help other extend the same to themselves. Where I once sought from my loved ones support for my dreams, I find now that they did not extend aid because they saw who I could be, and not who I was. I am my own master. Master, and servant - I am not above humanity, nor below it. I am of it, I am it. I am all that is human: life, death, love, loss, joy, and suffering. I am all of it, and because I am all of it, I am important, and necessar…

WWE Brand Split Mock Draft

So we're coming up very close to the brand split in the WWE, where RAW and Smackdown will be exclusive brands with exclusive rosters, and Smackdown will be going live every Tuesday.
Now, there are a number of factors that could shift the way the draft is handled. For example, we're still uncertain which show Shane and Stephanie will run. We're still unsure if they're certainly going to bring back the World Heavyweight Championship, or run with my idea and merge the IC/US titles and make that the main title on Smackdown. We're still not aware if tag teams will be split, if each show will have a unique division and title. We're still not sure if we're going to have women exclusive to each show and what that means for the Women's Championship.
Now, barring all surprise (not currently on the roster, and not NXT) draft choices, let us work with a few assumptions. First, I want to assume they will be bringing the World Heavyweight Championship back. I want t…
