    Reminds me of the first time Atlanta aquired Ashley Lelie, except his name was Peerless Price then.

    Damn......I know you guys don't like Lelie, but I would have liked to have seen him as a Patriot. With Branch & Jackson question marks, I would have preferred Lelie & Caldwell over Brown & Caldwell. No offense meant towards Brown, but he would make a nice #3 receiver instead of a starter. I wonder if the Pats are waiting for someone to get cut (a Detroit WR maybe ?).

    I still don't know why Atlanta was so anxious to dump Duckett, he was a different style from Dunn and Norwood.

    Cool -- a first rounder Matt Millen Mistake!!! How about Rogers? Is he bionic yet, or just still suffering along with the surgical route?

    Sorry... I am really talking out of my butt here. But half the time I'm hearing it was the line's fault, half the time I'm hearing Harrington was hopeless, and a third half says Williams was the only one of those vaunted high round receiver picks worth his draft position...

    Of course, I'm willing to say "my bad" at any point on this, particularly if the Pats DO pick up an ex-Lion. After all, we made the SB runs by picking up has-beens and never-was-es.... among some blue chippers here and there. But ex-Lions just make me go "ewwww."

    Give Shanny his due.
    The man can broker these three-way trades
    to his team's decided benefit.

    Atlanta should have traded Mike Vick instead. Schaub looks like the better QB for me.

    Charles Rogers or Mike Williams over Kelvin Kight ??, yeah, I'd take the Matt Millen mistake evry day of the week over Kelvin Kight, and twice on Sundays. No offense Kelvin Kight, I'm sure you'r a nice guy.

    WOW WOW WOW!!!

    No, it just cant be, it cant be. Are the Redskins really that stupid? Denver will end up with a better record. So basically they wont even get anyone from the 2007 draft.

    So the Broncos will most likely get the Redskins first and third. What a steal for the Broncos. A first and third rounder (even the third and fourth isn't bad) and all they had to give up was a guy they don't need who wasn't going to play anyways. Wow.

    Oh, and all the Redskins got for that first and third was TJ Duckett, when they have that guy, what's his name, Clinton Portis? And he's supposedly going to be ready for the first game despite his injury (though I'd be skeptical based on this), and Betts is no slouch as a backup. Wow.

    I think the Redskins just added another power back and makes me wonder if Clinton Portis is worse off than I heard and Ashley Lelie well that makes three first round receivers on the Falcons roster now lets see if it makes a difference.

    Actually, if the Broncos end up with a BETTER record than the Redskins, they get the 'Skins third rounder and they can switch their draft place with the Redskins in the first round. If the Skins get the better record(wont happen) The Broncos get their 3rd and 4th rounders.

    Either way a TERRIBLE deal for the 'Skins, LMAO. :D

    It was only a matter of time for those two to get traded.
    I don't want them.

    I still feel that the media gives these two teams too much praise
    The Redskins continue to &^%&%-up
    we will see how well they do....
    as for Denver getting stronger....

    Good for them.

    I hope they lose every one of these games this year:

    Sun Oct.29 vs. Indianapolis
    9 Sun Nov. 5 at Pittsburgh Heinz Field
    10 Sun Nov.12 at Oakland McAfee Coliseum
    11 Sun Nov.19 vs. San Diego INVESCO Field at Mile High
    12 Thu Nov.23 at Kansas City Arrowhead Stadium
    13 Sun Dec. 3 vs. Seattle INVESCO Field at Mile High
    14 Sun Dec.10 at San Diego

    nice stretch....maybe Lynch will blow out a knee?

    We're all getting anxious for revenge on 9/24.
    They'll be lucky if they get a field goal.

    Ya i agree that it is a pretty bad trade, but i do think the move helps the Skins. Portis, even if healthy, is not the RB that the Skins bargained for when they traded Champ Bailey. Getting Duckett gives them a pretty nasty 1-2 punch if Portis is ok. You gotta remember that the running games needs to help Brunell out as he is aging. They have a decent WR corps and now a good 1-2 RB punch. Worth what was paid? No, but they should have a solid offense if their line holds up.

    apparently that rockymountainnews story has been updated:

    broncos receive a third and

    i) a fourth if skins finish with better record
    ii) a swap of firsts if skins finish with a worse record

    which makes more sense, but is still a fantastic haul for Lelie....especially considering that the redskins could just as easily finish 4-12 as 12-4.

    i guess they just don't like draft picks down there

    we should get in on some of that daniel snyder love

    Appears in addition to the draft picks the Broncos will get some cash as part of the deal:

    Broncos | Lelie reportedly has to pay back part of his signing bonus
    Tue, 22 Aug 2006 20:02:09 -0700

    ESPN.com's Len Pasquarelli reports Atlanta Falcons WR Ashley Lelie's fines for his training camp absence came to $378,000. Lelie also lost a $100,000 workout bonus because he did not participate in offseason workouts, and one league source suggested late Tuesday, Aug. 22, that he also had to repay the Denver Broncos a portion of his original rookie signing bonus.

    :D

    So if the Skins actually do well with Duckett, which I hope they do since I took aflyer on Duckett in the 14th round this year, then the Skins would lose their 3rd and 4th to the Broncos. Thus they would have no 2, 3 or 4 pick in the draft next year. Anyway we could get thier 5th?

    Honestly, I may have taken that deal for a much better WR - Branch. Worst case a #3 and #4, best case a #3 and a move up in the first round. The Redskins should be good this year but it's a tough division and weird things happen. I love having another team's #1 just in case . . .

    I wonder if Atlanta ever contacted the Pats??? You would think they would have at least called!!! I haven't heard anything in the news about it though.

    Maybe they didn't think he was worth the money db wants either.

    It's starting to look like the Redskins organization has adopted the philosophy that the draft just isn't important. Amazing.

    5th - Montgomery
    6th - Doughty
    6th - Golston
    7th - Lefotu
    7th - Simon
