    OUr WR core is garbage. The only guy worth anything is Gaffney and he's a FA (outside of possibly Hankerson). But who even knows what he have in Hank, hes an unknown and h'ell be rehabbing in the offseason instead of working his craft. I don't think we can count on himIMO Moss is running the risk of getting Rabach'd. We need to hit FA for a #1 WR and then hit the draft in the 3rd (maybe the 2nd if we can trade down and get another 2nd).

    What would you guys say are our 3 biggest needs?

    I'd say QB, WR, CB.

    Looks like SS & FS might be needs too. However, I think we concentrate on offense this year in the draft.

    I think Gomes can develop into a quality starter at either S spot, don't think it's a bigger need than WR or CB. I think OJ is fine at FS, on that DJax play they actually had good coverage he just didn't see the ball an dD.Jax made a play on it. And I think LL will be back. 1-year deal or something, kinda like what the Giants did with Kiwanuka, who was coming off IR.

    QB Plans

    I only see three real options for the skins this offseason...

    1) Go all in for Luck no matter what it takes

    2) Sign Matt Flynn and draft someone like Justin Blackmon with the first round pick (we have zero playmakers)

    3) Admit our flaws, draft by need, and hope to get lucky with a QB in the later rounds

    I don't trust RGIII

    You guys throw around stereo types that don't apply and have trouble seeing the big picture.

    Why would going all in for Luck be a Vinny move? Vinny traded draft pics for overpriced/over the hill players. Andrew Luck is a young stud that would be the corner stone of the franchise for years to come. Vinny never acquired young talent.

    Signing Matt Flynn isn't going to work out with our team. You guys get horny off seeing him throw 6 TDs, but he's doing that with the best offense in the NFL. We don't provide anything like that.

    The time is now to go after our franchise QB. We've been a crappy team for 20 years... It's time to make some moves and attempt to get out of this funk. We've tried numerous times to groom QBs with talent. This time let's get the guy that every team in the NFL declares a hot prospect.

    I'm sorry I'm just tired of being mediocre and this is the 3rd straight year that I've made this same arguement.
    If at this point next year this same discussion exists I don't know how much longer I can listen to nonsense.

    yea but trading all in for 1 person is just as bad when we have holes all through our roster

    You also assume the team with that pick would trade it..........most likely they won't no matter how much you offer.

    no bart scott..he is overrated.. riley is playing much better than scott has ever played.. he is a product of playing for rex and besides Ray lewis..plain and simple..
    we need to fix our offense.. dwayne bowe, stevie johnson, vincent jackson, and desean jackson will be available... at least a few will be...we have to try to get one of them.. if we get one of them, some OL depth, and resign landry and fletcher, that would be enough for FA

    ASHBURN, Va. -- Everyone knows the Washington Redskins need a quarterback. Head coach Mike Shanahan might not want to come out and say he needs to fix quarterback this offseason, since he doesn't want to insult the players he currently has at the position. But in a wide-ranging interview in his office Friday, he did acknowledge that it would be good to have a "franchise" guy.

    "Everybody wants a franchise quarterback," Shanahan said. "Every team you talk to, if you don't have a franchise quarterback, everybody's looking for a franchise quarterback. I understand. If you're in this business long enough, you understand that everybody wants a Peyton Manning, a Drew Brees, a Tom Brady, and rightfully so. If they're out there, you try and get one. And if they're not, you go with what you have and try and get it done."

    I pointed out to Shanahan that part of the problem is that there aren't 32 guys in the world who fit that description. He smiled.

    "Not everybody understands that," he said.

    I left Shanahan's office with the definite impression that the Redskins would look at every conceivable available option at quarterback this offseason -- drafting one, trading up to get an Andrew Luck or Robert Griffin III if they need to, or even looking at the possibility of bringing in Manning if the Colts let him go as expected and he can prove he's healthy. Shanahan didn't really discuss any of those specific names, and I didn't expect him to, but every time I raised a specific possibility, he made it clear they'll look at all options.

    As for other needs, let's go to your questions.

    Jason from Washington, D.C. checked into the mailbag last week and wanted me to ask Shanahan what was "the most glaring positional need" for the Redskins to address in the draft or free agency.

    Mike Shanahan: "We've got to get a wide receiver that's a playmaker. You've got to have a No. 1, no question about it. We've got [Santana] Moss, and [Jabar] Gaffney, who's going to be right at 1,000 yards. But you're still looking for a guy that can go the distance and make plays, running on a short shallow cross and go the distance. Everybody's looking for that."


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Later in the interview, the topic of rookie wide receiver Leonard Hankerson came up. Hankerson missed the final seven weeks of the season with a hip injury, but Shanahan's eyes got big when he talked about him.

    MS: "I think he's got a chance to be the guy. Health is what we don't know. He's got the hip. But we're hoping he's going to be that guy. You can see in practice where he's a natural. Big. The thing that separates guys at No. 1 is when they can beat bump coverage and they don't have to slow down to beat it. They're able to keep their speed and be able to get by somebody. He's got that."

    Of course, if the Redskins are looking for a No. 1 receiver for next year, it's unlikely they'll be willing to take a chance that Hankerson could come that quickly. There are some potential free-agent options in guys like Dwayne Bowe, Stevie Johnson, Reggie Wayne and Vincent Jackson. And if the Redskisn decide to take a receiver instead of a quarterback in the first round, Oklahoma State's Justin Blackmon is the top option.


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Bill from Maryland submitted a question asking what Shanahan's plans are for free agency, and he responded that they'd be similar to what they were last year, when they targeted a couple of specific guys with specific characteristics -- Barry Cofield, Stephen Bowen, Josh Wilson -- at some need positions.

    MS: "We'll try and do the same thing this year -- take a look at a couple of upgrades on defense, a couple of upgrades on offense. Guys that have proven themselves, who aren't too old, that we think are still hungry in that 26-, 27-, 28-year-old range. That's what we'd like to target in free agency if we can get those guys, and then try to target everything else in the draft."

    So there you go. That's your fun homework assignment for this week. Go look at the lists of prospective free agents and find guys in that 26-28-year-old range who play positions like safety and offensive line and wide receiver and see if you can figure out who they might be targeting. I will of course do what I can to find out more, but it sounds like we can start piecing some possibilities together no?

    Lots more to come all this week from my Shanahan interview, including more of your questions.

    I agree we need to fix the offense our defense was the strong part of our season and Riley did a nice job playing next to Fletcher(who will be re-signed) but later in the draft we should look for someone who can sit behind fletcher and learn then replace him when he retires

    yeah... we need to use one of our 4th rounders on a quality LB like we did riley that will come in and shine in 2 years... travis lewis would be great if drops to use..of course he would need to add some weight...

    we all have completely ignored peyton manning.. shanahan loves him and if available and 100% healthy by april, he would highly consider taking him and drafting someone in the 2nd for the future.... and lets not compare the Mcnab move to this because we'r talking about a top 10 player of all time as opposed to someone that cant even keep his job against rex grossman and a mediocre rookie...
