    That’s a rather stunning departure for a team whose owner, Daniel Snyder, has never shied away from making a big splash with big contracts for big-name free agents. But considering that the Redskins are barely under the $116 million salary cap for 2008, the team doesn’t have much choice...
    This is why you don't spend salary cap money just because you have it.
    The Redskins barely have enough money to sign draft picks this year, yet they are really no closer to a super bowl birth than we are.
    Thank God we have a front office with brains enough to stay in good salary cap shape year after year.
    I think they are alot closer than us.
    They have a good

    Qb
    RB
    FB
    WR
    TE
    OL
    LBS
    DBS

    Their Dl is pretty solid as well.
    They are nothing but a bunch of under achiveers and they play in the NFC east( pretty hard division)
    I don't think there is alot that they needed to add. If they draft a WR like Sweed and a 2nd round Safety or DE. They should be post season bound again. However, they are under a new coaching regime so they may have to loose some players.
    And we don't?
    The only area where they have an edge is at QB (and a slight edge at that, Campbell is not that great) and WR (thanks only to Santana Moss).
    Advantage
    QB
    TE
    LB
    DBS

    Push
    RB
    Ol( when healthy)

    We are good but they have a great team that doesn't perform.
    Just my opinion, not 1 you have to live by.
    You rated them a Push at RB?
    Seriously?
    Do you remember who the rookie of the year was?
    And our OL is also a helluva lot better.

    I will give you an advantage on QB and TE.
    But we are much better than them in DT, LB, DBs (tragic, but true), and especially RB.
    Everything else is a push.
    Last season's matchup indicated to me that they are quite a bit better than us.
    We have the running game but they laughed at that as they shut it down.

    A single matchup is hardly a good indicator of the better team.
    If you want to look at that, then we must have been a much better team than the Giants, who we destroyed.
    And since the Giants beat the Pats, they must be better, which makes us better than the Patriots by proxy...

    Can you say that you honestly think that Clinton Portis is a better RB than AD?
    [/quote]

    No I can't. However, I can't honestly say that AD is better than CP.
    It's a push. AD is incredible but CP up there as well. That's why RB is a push.

    Are you even a Vikings fan?
    Somebody please get this guy some purple juice.

    AD vs Clinton Portis?
    I think AD wins in speed, vision, strength, quickness and lateral movement.
    Although portis can throw better (probably) and he can block better.
    AD is a much much better back.
    CT is also MUCH better than Betts.

    Juice?
    What the floop is juice?
    I want some grape drink.

    Classic! Wow we have alot in common.

    Their team got better as the year went on, beat the Vikings and went to the playoffs. I think that makes them closer until we prove otherwise on the field.

    Re: Redskins do not have a single free agent visit planned

    The Redskins have mortgaged the bank.

    They are CAP strapped, have given up half of thier picks the last 2 years and although they do have some talent, have no depth.

    It was a small miracle that Collins came in and rescued them last year.
    It won't happen again this year.
    Again, no depth.

    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg
