Galloway Finds A New Home In Washington

April 28th, 2010
Look man, you need to practice or Im not &^%n playing your old ass.

"Look man, you need to practice or I'm not &^%'n playing your old ass."

Now how the hell is Mike Shanahan supposed get Joey Galloway and Santana Moss on the field at the same time if Chucky couldn’t figure out how to play Galloway and Antonio Bryant at the same time?

Perhaps that question will be answered in September.

Galloway, who turns 39 in the fall, just signed with the Redskins, per the Washington Post. One would have to believe he looked pretty good in a workout to get signed, albeit surely for no guaranteed money.

Very impressive for a guy his age.

And to think the free-spending Skins could have had Michael Clayton last week for, say, a seventh round pick in 2013.

    My god, Redskins are flippin desperate for WR’s! Galloway is turning 89 this year!!

    For how bad there receiving core is they’re stupid for passing on T.O., if no one signs T.O. before training camp, I expect him to sign and play by week 3.

    If Clayton gets traded or cut soon, mark my words he will be a Redskin…

    Oops, I see now that you already mentioned the idea of a trade…silly me, I should start reading word for word more often.

    i gotta say that Shanahan has that Gruden’s win now philosphy.

    sure Galloway signs but will he make the team? Doubtful.

  4. jake Says:

    Galloway will probably pull a hamstring getting from the parking lot to the Redskins training facility.

    On a TOTALLY different front look at this montage of the “new Bucs”

    @ Mr.Lucky
    What is wrong with wanting to win now? Every Year! Plug in the new with the old & keep on truckin!

  7. Radio Mushmouth Says:

    Mr Lucky has that “win later maybe” attitude

    Joey is my guy I am a OSu alum but he did hard time sniffing the field for the steelers and was very ineffective for the Patriots, this just goes to show you that TO will not be there and is going to have a hard time singing anywhere in my opinion

    Its one thing to have the “win now” attitude. Its another to have it actually produce results.

  10. Eric Says:

    Can Brooks be far behind?

    I guess he wouldnt fit in well with a 3-4 defense though would he?

    That would make for some ironic twists on December 12th though, eh?

    Galloway has done for a few years now. I don’t see him making the team. He had a couple of good years with TB, but he sure went downhill fast.

    One of the best attributes of Gruden was that he got rid of players before they fell off the face of the earth (Quarles, Rice, Kelly, Galloway, B. Johnson) He may not have been that classy doing it, but he was proven right on all of them.

    @ Nick

    the same goes for ” building through the draft”

    Not surprisingly Tampa2 and RM misunderstand the “win now” philosophy. Gruden and Allen had the “win now” philosophy. Worked some times. Failed sometimes. Gruden’s record with the Bucs was just above .500. 60-57 in seven seasons, including a 3-2 mark in the playoffs. I am a Gruden fan and he deserves a lot of credit, but to be fair you have to account for the other side of the coin, which was the occasional 4-12 season and the repeated first round playoff exit.

    Contrast that to the Colts, the classic “build through draft” team under Polian. The Colts have been 131-61 since drafting Manning. I know Manning is one of the best of all time, but think about it for a second Since drafting guys like Manning and E. James, the Colts have not had a top draft pick. Probably not a pick in the top 20 (not sure about actual stat), yet they have always been competitive. Why? This is a quote from Polian (ask yourself if he is describing Gruden/Allen “win now” philosophy):

    “When you reach for need or the perception of need, I think you make a mistake,” said Polian of the first round pick. “We’re looking for the best football player we can find.”

    Gaines Adams come to mind? Dexter Jackson? BY the way, the Colts excel at late round drafting (obviously_, an area where Gruden/Allen really struggled. Why? Gruden/Allen drafted for “potential” over “production,” another thing Dom has changed.

    To understand “build through draft,” just listent to Dom. Dom said recently that one of his role models was Polian. Now I know even Polian and the Colts take some free agents, but the emphasis is absolutely on the draft — the antithesis of the “win now” approach. And even Dom says (in this very article) that the Bucs will take free agents, but just not over the draft.

    I am not in any way trying to compare the Bucs to the Colts or Polian to Dom, but why is everyone so upset by watching the Bucs try to follow an incredible example? Why are the Colts a genius organization but the Bucs are idiots when they are following the same approach?

    Dare I say ridiculous impatience by Bucs fans?

    The Colts have won 1 SB during that time. Same as TB. SD also does similar things as Indy. Wonder how many SBs they’ve won. That’s right. 0. I want TB to approach things like NO. Draft well, add some key free agents and make smart trades. This whole all in on draft principal is doomed for failure.
