here are the Redskins related questions/answers.
Washington, D.C.: Hey fellas,
1. How much better would Detroit be with Carmelo? They took a big gamble on Milicic and it hasn't paid off.
2. Would you please tell all Skins fans that their team will only improve 1-2 games with Gibbs? It was more a publicity stunt than anything else!

Tony Kornheiser and Michael Wilbon: Good question. But I think that Larry Brown would not have played Carmelo very much at all. Larry and Phil Jackson don't play rookies. And you can look it up. I know it sounds preposterous b/c we know how good Carmelo is now right out of the box, but Darko might be this good too. We won't know for a couple of years now. As for your 2nd question/comment, I don't agree w/ your assessment of the Redskins. I think that Joe Gibbs is a winner in everything and anything he does. And I think the Redskins will win 10 games this year. That doesn't mean they are going to even make the playoffs, but I think they will win 10 games. I think Gibbs would have won 9 or 10 games w/last year's game. The NFL is a coach's league now more than ever. W/all the changing faces b/c of free agency and salary cap drama putting together a team quickly is paramount. And Gibbs was so brilliant during the strike years in 82 and 87. There is no coincidence the Redskins won Super Bowls in those seasons. I don't have any rooting interest in the Redskins. I'm from Chicago. I root for my team the Bears. Period. But, I'm a fan of Joe Gibbs and I got see evidence to the contrary before I go against him. --Mike
Houston, Tex.: Given the number of veteran QBs that are circulating now (or recently) (Warner, Garcia, Collins) did the Redskins jump too in signing Brunell?
Tony Kornheiser and Michael Wilbon: Absolutely. How could you prefer Mark Brunell over Jeff Garcia? I think the Redskins jumped too soon b/c I think that Ramsey is a perfectly acceptable starting QB. I'd even take a shot a Kurt Warner if they hadn't signed Brunell. --Tony
