And this time its for reasons other than to make me frustrated that the Redskins can't cover a double move.
I've been thinking this one over a lot and I gotta say I approve of this trade. I would like to see Campbell traded, and not because I dislike him but because its the right move by him. His time in DC hasn't been great and he desearves the chance to start somewhere. Buffalo, Oakland, St. Louis would work well I think. Also a 4th round pick on our end would be nice.
But McNabb instantly changes this team around. The O-line has seen slight improvements in several areas. With a little bit more here and there, next year it could look like.
LT - Russel Okung
LG - Derrick Dockery
C - Casy Rabach
RG - Chad Rinehart
RT - Levi Jones
Thats an improvement at both Tackels from last year and keeps the only two decent players we had on the line. There is also the possibility we pick up another LT in free agency so we can move Okung to RT for his rookie year and have a slightly older more savy player in the LT spot. Then when hes ready swap the old guy for the young stud. I hate to say it but Former Cowboy Flozel Adams could be a decent stop gap for your o-line while we groom Okung.
But anyways back to McNabb. He can make throws that I do not believe Campbell had the ability to make. Hitting a reciever 40 yards downfield in stride seemed like a breeze for McNabb, Moss will finally get a chance at a few Home Run catches. Our tight end pair will be a great thing for McNabb to have. on our roster are 4 very tall recievers. 2 proven to be very good in Cooley and Davis. Thomas has proven he can play but needs some work. But with a Great QB like McNabb I think the young reciever pair will be pretty amazing.
Add in the Defense that can keep up with any offense, a brand new Mentality with Shanahan and Hasslet and I think the Skins will be a force in the NFC east again.
