I told you so on Taylor

Last spring, I warned Washington Redskins fans that dealing for Jason Taylor was a mistake.

They ripped me. Others in the media also praised the move.

How could I dare say that about a defensive end who could rush the passer, coming off an 11-sack season? Here's how? You don't trade for old players. That's when you get in big trouble.

Now the Redskins have released Taylor and they are out a second-round pick because of it. For that pick, they ended up with a player who gave them 3 1/2 sacks in eight starts. He was limited because of injuries.

That's what happens to 34-year-old players. They break down. They slow. You don't give up premium picks for aging players. That's what bad franchises do.

The Redskins say they are releasing him because Taylor refused a clause in his contract that would have required him to take part in the majority of their off-season workouts. That's garbage. They released him because he's not who they thought he was.

I was right. So quit ripping me.

Let me go on record with the prediction that if Prisco continues to get 1 out of every 10 statements correct he will continue to praise himself and may just break his arm patting himself on the back. 

Somebody remember this so I can revisit this column and say "I told you so" - that will boost my ego like Pete boosts his, right?

Pete, it's gonna be hard for folks to abide by your last sentence with an "I told you so entry" such as this one.  So, you were right.  As were many others.
