When are the Redskins going to realize a good team is built through the draft, not free agency or one-sided trades. Giving away premium picks year after year, signing old players in the twilight of their careers has made the Redskins the laughing stock of the NFL.

Daniel Snyder needs to understand the concept of a salary cap, and wake up to the realization Vinny Cerrato hasn't got a clue on how to run a pro sports franchise. The roster is getting older every year, the depth is poor, any injuries and we start making incredibly naive trades, thus leaving the Redskins with minimal draft picks. Notice a trend!

The window of opportunities is running out for players like Portis, Moss, Randle El, Samuels, and many more. Mr Snyder needs to decide if he wants our beloved Redskins to keep taking short cuts and quick fixes, or rebuild the franchise through the draft and smart free agent acquisitions, to give the team strength and depth right across the board.                                                                                                                               

April 25 and 26 should be the final chance for Cerrato to redeem himself. Otherwise Mr Snyder you know what you have to do to stop us being the next Detroit Lions.
