Manziel giving FedEx Stadium the middle finger

The National Media has been in love with Johnny Manziel, aka “Johnny Football”, for years and I have been saying all along that I think he is going to be a huge bust at the NFL level. Well, during the Washington Redskins/Cleveland Browns game on Monday Night Football, Manziel proved that he does not have the class or maturity to be an NFL quarterback. Manziel gave the entire FedEx Field crowd the middle finger during just his second preseason game. There must be a problem with the water in Cleveland since earlier in the offseason a Browns fan urinated on Art Modell’s grave. Read more about Johnny Football flips off DC

How deep is the safety position for the Redskins?

The Washington Redskins had a weak spot at safety last season. That may change with the addition of Ryan Clark the former Pittsburgh Steelers safety. Bringing in Clark was a smart decision for the Washington Redskins as he played all 16 games last year, over 100 tackles, and he’s a great leader for the Redskins younger safety’s.

The Redskins still have Tanard Jackson who was suspended last year. Jackson can still help the Redskins with his hard hitting ability and the great hands he has.

The Redskins started their draft off with a smart move by GM Bruce Allen to trade down from the 34th selection to the 47th pick; gaining a third rounder by doing so (78th overall). The Redskins had plenty of options at 34, and they knew someone they liked would still be there at 47. The real victory of this trade was gaining an extra third rounder, as a team with a lot of holes and only six draft picks, gaining a high draft pick was a smart move by the Redskins.

With the first round of the NFL draft now complete, it is time to examine the Redskins options at 34. The Redskins could go a few directions with the 34th pick. The most obvious pick would be offensive line, with Players like Morgan Moses, Joel Bitonio, Cyrus Kouandjio, and Xavier Su’a Filo. The Redskins could use upgrades along the offensive line, especially at right tackle, so all these picks would make sense.

The Redskins haven’t found a long term solution at safety since the tragic death of Sean Taylor. Obviously, Sean Taylor was a special player, and no one expected replacing him would be easy. However, the position has remained a weak point of the Redskins for far too long now.
