WHOA WHOA! i just reread it, O MAN BAILEY's AGENT BETTER NOT ASK FOR SOMETHING RIDICULOUS!

"provided both teams can reach deal with their new player, SI.com's Peter King is reporting"

ROLAND BAILEY BETTER AGREE TO WHATEVER THEY SEND HIS WAY!

Anytime and thanks .......... Everything I said about Portis still holds true ...... Even though he isnt a Bronco ........ you guys will see alot of Stephen Davis Power , But more speed then you can Phanthom ........ A question was asked , Who is faster Lelie ( Sub 4.3 speed ) or Portis . Portis stood right there and said I am Faster lets race to Prove it .Shanny said no ........ Portis is a Better T2T runner then a sweeper ........

You wont mind as much if Champ plays both offense and defens. Now that he is going to you though I am calling him by his real name ROLAND BAILEY :D

Bailey wanted out of DC, of course his agent will be reasonable with the contract demands. I am as certain of that as I am that Nader will not run for Prez again.

Oh crap.

Well, a trade has been agreed upon, but there is no deal until both teams conclude contracts with the players included in the trade. Let's see if the Broncos enjoy negotiating with Champ Bailey any more than the Redskins did.

Spence
02-24-2004, 04:20 PM
Well, I'm on record opposing this trade and nothing I've read today changes my mind in the least. If it does go through, though, it'll be time for people like me to just accept it and root for Clinton Portis like we loved him all along. If you're Redskins do or die then there is no other possible attitude to take.

What a life we choose.

Spence, it'll be much easier when you see Portis running a muck behind a Joe Bugges o-line.:D

ESPN just came on and said it is a done deal but the Redskins are getting the bad deal on this. The deal had to be made because Champ was not going to come back to DC. The Broncos are expected to pay 8 million a year on Champ. They can have him

RichardBradley
02-24-2004, 04:48 PM
Champ bullied us into this/.

TexSkin
02-24-2004, 04:49 PM
Why are we getting the bad deal on this? Because They think every back is just a product of Denver? Bah Spider knows like many Denver fans how much of a game breaker Portis is.

JohnnyPark
02-24-2004, 04:53 PM
Well I guess trading out of the 5th pick is inevitable now.

Smiley
02-24-2004, 04:56 PM
This is no bad deal on either side. I don't like giving up the 2nd round pick, but for Portis, no problem. We needed a good RB mucj more than we needed a very good cover corner. the question is: where do you want your stars? I would much rather an RB than CB. Time for defense.

WinslowRedskin
02-24-2004, 05:26 PM
I personally think we will attempt to fix our D threw FA. Look at the cuts today; TWO D-Linemen, in addition to a punter and lb. We seem to be the frontrunner at Ted Washington from New England (already told he wont be resigned), and I bet we can work out a short term deal with Chad Bratzke from Indy. Marcus Washington would be nice to take Armstead's place, but that probably won't happen after we sign Portis, Brunell, and Ted Washington.

Yudolindo
02-24-2004, 05:33 PM
Why are we Redskin fans happy about sending away our 2nd round pick? What does that give us, a first and 5th? How is this fair?

natgbz
02-24-2004, 05:46 PM
You know what i think is funny? All this talk about how it's hard to find a good corner, but it's easy to find a good RB! Our last two corners, Bailey and Smoot are great! Our last few RB's haven't been great (even when going in the second round). Just because Denver can draft RB's with ease and can't draft CB's (i.e. Deltha O'neal), doesn't mean it's the same for us, in fact it's the polar opposite.

Maybe its a 2nd rounder next year

Well, this is an anomalous off-season: it has a ton of solid FA corners and only one or two so so running backs. If there is a year to make this sort of trade, this is it.

Skinsdynasty
02-24-2004, 05:59 PM
If we get Winfield through FA and then Taylor in the draft ill go Nuts. However I do believe that since this deal may very well take our 2nd Rounder THIS year we are going to trade down the 5th pick for more.

dj_stouty
02-24-2004, 06:11 PM
I am happy. I'm not thrilled about giving up our 2nd rounder, but sometimes you have to give up a lot for something special.

I think Gibbs is very happy too. Portis is not a "scat back", he is a "stud back". He can do it all, and I guarantee Gibbs has already mocked up some running plays with Bugel w/in the last 24 hours.

If Gibbs is truly the master of doing using someone's talent to their fullest, then the NFL better watch out for the DC version of Clinton Portis.

GloryHog
02-24-2004, 06:21 PM
If Portis holds up for the long haul it may be turn out to be a good trade. I'm still very concerned about giving up our second round pick. I'm afraid we have to many holes and not enough picks and money. Kind of like trading for a brand new Corvette thats riding on retreads. When one of those babies blows it could be ugly.

Chill guys. We are taking about God opps I mean Gibbs. He knows what he is doing.

WinslowRedskin
02-24-2004, 06:36 PM
In Gibbs I trust. And I think that if we can get some FAs (Ted Washington at DT, Vincent at CB [ would've said Winfield but may be too expensive if we play on drafting Taylor and Signing Washington], and then either Marcus Washington at LB or Chad Bratzke at DE) then maybe we won't have to look to the draft to fix our problems. Taylor at pick 5 and maybe an O-Lineman in 5th round and that's all we need if we can sign atleast 1 awesome D-Lineman, maybe 2. Playoff-destined we are.

Skinsdynasty
02-24-2004, 07:03 PM
So do we have portis now, essentially? is he our RB?

Yudolindo
02-24-2004, 07:06 PM
Yeah...what other position would he play? :) I think its now a matter of working out contracts.

Antwoine Winfield or Troy Vincent will be on the other side of Fred Smoot next season. Add in Sean Taylor at Safety and we will have no trouble covering TO, Keyshawn, however...Smooooooooooooooooooot and Sean "God" Taylor....BRING IT!
