    Locksley has already had an HC job and didn't fare too well. I would think he likes where he is and the money he is making...as well as the players he gets to work with day in and out. Sometimes being the 1st Lt. is better than being the General.

    I explained this earlier in the thread and was trying not to be so explicit with it because I love Thompson, but honestly, we probably don't have D1 prospects at receiver. Catch my drift? Against Hoover alone, the Red Zone drops numbered in the double digits. You have to watch the games and see ball placement, not just go by incompletions.

    Coach Freeman is good, but he is yet to draw up a play where Taulia throws the ball AND catches it.

    That is why I brought up the Elite 11 competition. He did have elite receivers in that game.

    His team was eliminated early. They don't post stats. But this was a comparison to Tua, who not only led his team to victory in the Finals but was also named the MVP. After the competition the man who runs it said that Tua was the best QB who he had ever coached.

    I think that Tualia is going to be very good, but pump the brakes on the "better than Tua" stuff.

    True, but he might take a chance again..................in any case, I'd pay whatever I needed to spend to keep both of them

    Now, we have another QB controversy already...

    One of the franchises that gives him a chance at multiple Super Bowls - Giants and Steelers have aging QBs and both would win a ton with a guy like Tua.

    Redskins fans are doomed to suffer as long as the greatest jerk in the sport owns your team.

    Trust me I know. I've actually decided I'll become a fan of whatever team drafts him and possibly leave or at least temper my Redskins fandom. I have a ton of issues with the owner and team for a variety of reasons. If they hadn't drafted Payne and Allen I might have given up already. And this is coming from a lifelong fan.
