:D


You're not giving Davis enough credit in regards to his blocking. I've recently sat and watched 4 games prior to his injury and our running game was POTENT.

There's a larger gap in between Paulsen and Davis's route running than there is between their run blocking.


Good point, not sure what exact game Davis got hurt but we rushed for 1330 yards our first 8 games and 1379 our last 8 games. Very balanced numbers as far a rushing the ball goes and like you said no comparison in the passing game. I do not want to put Paulsen down though, because every team needs players that. Ones that will do the dirty work and he does a lot of it and he plays on special teams as a blocker as well.


I love Paulsen too. He's a helluva player and showed his greatness in how he didn't cause the them to miss a beat. He did his job extremely well and raised his game.


+1

Exactly...I definitely want us to keep Paulsen. If Davis' contract is incentive laden, then I think we have our TE "concerns" taken care of for this year...next year maybe we can grab an upgrade.

This will give us less complications on fixing out DB needs too.

Again, I watched more film from the 2012/2013 season up until Davis got hurt.

It's easy to forget a players contributions/accomplishments when they go down earlier in the season. Davis was BALLING, seriously. Go back and watch the Tampa game...

RGIII dumps the pass off to Davis on a 3 yard screen. Davis receives a below par block, stiff arms that man, runs 8 yards and stiff arms another man. He then runs another 4-8 yards and lowers the boom on another player. It was an amazing play and displayed what he brings to this offense. He will be an amazing weapon next year, if we can keep him.

That being said, if you don't think realize his worth, go back and watch the film.

We have proven we can win without him. If he signs a respectable contract all for it.

Davis and Garcon on the field at the same time will be a huge burden for opponents. I hope he's back.

Hope it pans out exactly as you said. I'd gladly feast on some crow to that.

Fred Davis: I don’t want to just go for the money



Redskins tight end Fred Davis got some good news recently about his recovery from a torn Achilles and that means it’s time for him to start thinking about where he’d like to end up as a free agent this offseason.

Other than saying that he likes being in Washington and that it would be “awesome” to play in his hometown of Cleveland if he couldn’t stay in D.C., Davis didn’t offer much in the way of specifics about where he’d like to play in 2013. He did offer up some thoughts on what would be guiding his ultimate decision.

Losing Fred is going to hurt.
I know he got a pretty good zip on the ball. He has a quick release. . . once I seen a coupla' throws, I was just like 'Yeah, he's that dude.'"

we're ONLY losing Fred Davis if Mike and Kyle think they can get by without him OR if they feel he will not be as key to the offense that many of us feel he is

or if we can't, umm, pay him. That might be an obstacle to resigning him. Money.

that's the thing - this FO will find a way to make it work IF they really want to keep the player

read this piece by 1niksder - there's other stuff in there but the bottom p[art is informative

^^ THANKS

I'm a huge Fred Davis Fan - I hope he's here but ...

this franchise is being so well managed now that apart from Bob - no player is irreplaceable


ALL players deserve to get what their worth
more and more Redskin players are choosing to play here and not necessarily for what they might make elsewhere

these are the new "CORE" Redskins
