Skin's fans know that our team had some big holes to fix at the end of a terrible 4 - 12 season. Mike Shanahan was brought in to be the new coach, Bruce Allen the general manager and since Dan Synder has sat back and let his top two go to town on the roster. The first quiet free agency in years for Washington even though players like defensive end Julius Peppers (Carolina Panthers - Chicago Bears), middle linebacker Karlos Dansby (Arizona Cardinals - Miami Dolphins), free safety Antrel Rolle (Arizona Cardinals - New York Giants), etc... were available and could fill needs. Instead former Pro Bowlers Larry Johnson and Willie Parker were brought in for depth and competition behind starting tailback Clinton Portis; defensive tackle Maake Kemoeatu, and quarterback Rex Grossman are among the best known names. Most recently trades for Donovan McNabb from divison rival Philly gives a proven leader at quarterback, and defensive end/tackle Adam Carriker from the St. Louis Rams shows that there finally is a plan in the nation's capital. This plan goes in full effect with the draft and around 8 PM the Redskins chose left tackle Trent Williams of Oklahoma University an All-American selection in 2009 to anchor that line and protect the blind-side of McNabb.
Skin's fans forget the past, our team is headed in the right direction! Now pour yourself something nice, sit back, relax while watching the rest of the draft with BSC.
