Staying Medium's offseason plans

Here are my plans for the offseason, in no particular order:

- Obviously the 3rd and 4th quarters of the Chargers game still need to be review; they will be up in short order. First and 2nd quarters are already up.

- 2009 Position Reviews. First up will be offensive line. We'll do a fairly detailed evaluation of the unit's performance based primarily on the game reviews and speculate about who might be back next year and in what role. This will be done for every position group - so by my count that nine posts that will probably be spread out over some time (but they will definitely be up before free agency, in whatever form it takes, opens up).

- Offseason blueprints. I'll speculate on plans of action for the draft and free agency. The plans would vary dramatically based on whether or not the CBA and salary cap are maintained - that dictates who is available as a free agent (and who can leave the Redskins as a free agent) so we'll look at both scenarios. What actually happens will probably bear no resemblance to what I imagine, but it will be fun anyway.

- Getting to know Mike Shanahan. There's a fair amount written about the man and I intend to be doing some research and sharing whatever I can find out.

So I imagine posts would be rather long and extensive but spaced out a bit; probably an average of one a week or so. But this is my first offseason and I'm making this up as I go along, so there is room for trial and error here.


  1. Sounds like a good plan to me. Can't wait to read your thoughts on this season and next...

  2. Looks like we're going to have a 3-4 defense under Haslett. What will that mean?

  3. It means that the coaches have to sit down and have a long talk with Albert Haynesworth...
