I was just watching "The Redskins Report" here on my local NBC with host George Michael and regular guests Sonny Jurgensen, John Riggins, and Michael Wilbon. In the show Michael brought up that this might be Smoot's last year with the 'Skins. Then they aired a quick taped interview with Smoot which he says basically "its up to the front office if he returns or not." I just wanted to know, any other 'Skins fan think this is a bad move if they get rid of Smoot?
Now I am not saying that Skins are getting rid of Smoot but they really implied that it might happen.
Also, just to note, on the show Riggins brought up to help the 'Skins they should trade away Mark Brunell, LaVar Arrington, and Clinton Portis in the off season. That I did not understand.
Riggins case about trading Portis was he doesn't think he plays "Joe Gibbs' style" football and maybe he was better off in Denver.
If I were a 10 or 11 team conference I would not be waiting for others to make a move. I would make a pre-emptive strike and boost myself up to 12 before anyone decides to make an offer to 1 or 2 schools.
