Eloi signed to practice squad

Remember wide receiver Keith Eloi, he of the great video moments (like jumping into the back of a truck and jumping out of a swimming pool backwards)? Well, he's back with the Redskins, signed to the practice squad this morning, according to the team.

Riggo reconsiders

After Sunday's performance in Philadelphia, John Riggins, speaking from his home on the range backyard deck, has this to say about Jason Campbell: "You know, I was wrong about him."

no news on a new GM yet?

Skins 27, Saints 24. Upset of the year.

Posted by: Rypien11 | December 2, 2009 9:42 AM

I like your style, Rypien11 ... but my coins are going with the black rather than the burgundy (the gold is obviously a push). I agree, however, that its a good idea to take the Skins and the points ... I'm anticipating a double digit line, maybe even the first time into the twenties this season.

Also, I heart Eloi.

Do you really think the skins will let JC walk free after they invested a 1st round pick and years of development, if they have the ability to get something in return for him. They will offer a tender to control his ability to leave. It makes sens doesn't it?

Posted by: TWISI | December 2, 2009 11:06 AM | Report abuse


It all depends on who is controlling the project.

A new GM with a new coach isn't going to care about what has been invested in JC17 - they want to make the picks and they want their guys - out with the old, in with the new.

We already know Snerratto doesn't think JC is a winner/leader. A 12-13 loss season and JC17's uneven play will only reaffirm that perception.

You're crazy.

Grilliams is going to demolish our offense.

If those guys could harass Brady into a 2-pick no TD performance, just imagine what's going to happen to our busted-up broken-down offense with no running game to lean on.

Cool, they signed another athletic WR who they won't use in games!

Because they have to give ARE 40 plays a game to do nothing!

They could get the band back together with Alex Gibbs, and that Gibbs name will carry some cred in DC.

p1funk I don't know. Seems like a wasted opportunity to maximize your resources if you let him just walk (i.e. Jason Taylor situation in Miami). You hold onto leverage until it's gone I would think.

Maybe. I'm not saying it's the "smart" thing to do, I'm just tryiong to think realistically given the likely scenarios.

I don't see a new regime giving a rat's snout about JC17 or the investment that has been sunk into him. Not their guy. Not their pick. Not their investment.

The regime in place already thinks pretty lowly of JC. It seems like they were ready to take cents on the dollar for JC at the start of the season, and I don't know how this season changes their perceived value of JC17 once it's over.

twis, on the previous post someone suggested that with Shanny being a possible front runner for the HC job next year, and Kubiak being on the hot seat in Houston, perhaps they'd both join up in DC....just dreaming is all....

MrRedskin21, the difficulty in getting the newly signed athletic WR into the game is that the league doesn't allow practice squad players to suit up on game day.

Still, I'm ready to cut the cord on both Santana Moss and Antwaan Randel El. I prepared for next season to do only slightly better than this season while they "build" through youth and wise free agency ... and take advantage of the one season cap reprieve to unload some of the overpaid older guys playing with a sense of entitlement (Portis, Moss, maybe even Hall ... I'm not ready to mail it in on Landry till he is allowed to play strong safety full time, but he's close to my playing-with-sense-of-entitlement line ... I think he might need a more forceful coordinator/coach ... bring back Grilliams).

REPOST:

It has been said that one definition of insanity is to keep doing the same things but expecting different results.

So yeah, let's keep this proven loser and poor excuse for a quarterback on the roster... along with Portis, the current o-line, the so called receiving corps, the d-backs, special needs teams, coaching staff, front office and ownership group.

And then let's go out and give away all of our draft picks and hire another overpriced and over the hill prima donna or two, while failing to address some critical needs on the roster.

We can also jack up the prices again on the parking, beer and other concessions, give the stadium support crew even more special training in fan abuse and rudeness, and continue making the game experience at FEDEX field an ever more miserable time for all concerned.

The Redskins will be lucky to finish up at 4-12 this season, but of course, with the same mix of losers next year, everything will change and for the better too.

Just ask Vinny -- because it's the same BS he has been peddling each season for the last several years!!

And the point everyone else has been making for the last half season is even if new leadership is brought in, Campbell is still by FAR the best FA candidate at QB available, and it's not even close. So it doesn't matter whether or not they invested in him. He's still the best option, unless they opt to go full tilt on a rookie from day one.

AAAAAAAAAND we're back to square 1. Getting rid of Campbell and drafting a QB would mean starting the new guy behind our shaky offensive line or playing him once Todd Collins gets killed. Matt Stafford is in this situation with an even better line. He had already missed 2 games due to shoulder and knee injuries, has a completion % of 54%, and has 6 more INTs than TDs. This my friends is a Detroit Lions move.

"Wednesday morning, the magazine published what it said was a voice mail provided by Grubbs that she said was left by Woods on Nov. 24, three days before his early morning car crash. In the voicemail, a man, who calls himself "Tiger," asks Grubbs to take her name off her phone.

"My wife went through my phone," the man's voice said. "And, uh, may be calling you.'

The call ends with the man saying: "You gotta do this for me. Huge. Quickly.""

The fact that Snyder and Cerrato tried to sign Cutler illustrates how unqualified this front office is. The Bears have arguably the worst offensive line and are dead last in total rushing yards while ours is just as bad as it has given up the 3rd most sacks in the league. Behind a terrible offensive line, Cutler has thrown 20 INTs, the most in the league, and he simply fails to protect the ball and make good decisions.

Despite non-stop blitzes both off and on the field, Jason Campbell has displayed his maturity, dedication, and toughness. Fair weather fans and couch potato football experts fail to realize how fortunate we are in having a quarterback that has dealt with the situation in the manner that Jason has. He has not allowed such conspicuous opposition from the front office affect his relationship with the organization, teammates, and fans. Every week he plays to the best of his ability, and he never withholds effort even in the face of an essentially lost season. The Week 6 benching tested his character, and we have seen in the following five weeks that it is one to be highly regarded.

Most people say that Jason will not be a Hall of Fame quarterback, and they probably are right; however, most people fail to realize that in the NFL's 89 year history, only 31 quarterbacks have been inducted, and I can guarantee only three other great names that will be in Canton: Brady, Favre, and Manning (Brees could be in here too, but he needs a few more big years and a silver football to affirm that). If fans honestly believe Hall of Fame quarterbacks are churned out as easily as a Twinkie in a Hostess factory, then they simply do not understand the game of football. Good teams only need a quality quarterback that can lead an offense. The fact of the matter is, the Redskins are not a good team. Joe Theismann, Doug Williams, and Mark Rypien were not Hall of Fame quarterbacks, but they were quality quarterbacks. Super Bowl winners Trent Dilfer and Brad Johnson, who had his second best statistical year with the 1999 NFC East champion Redskins, were quality quarterbacks. Most importantly, they were on good teams. With the right tools, Jason Campbell can be the perfect leader for a top-tier offense. He possesses the arm to be a deep threat, and the legs to be an effective scrambler. Place him behind a healthy offensive line and in front of a running back that actually practices, Jason Campbell is quarterback that wins games.

The City of Washington can expect to see the last of its five-year "love affair" with Jason Campbell in person on December 27. Dan Snyder will send off this wasted opportunity to finally find a franchise quarterback, something this organization has not had in almost 25 years.

campbell should be offered a nice contract in the off-season bring in another free agent qb,brennan is still here and the new qb on the practice squad, whoever wins the 1st and 2nd string jobs leave it at that nothing wrong with competition..washington can't afford to draft another high pick qb because they have too many problems on this team as is..but with snyder & cerrato drafting player's..I am beginning to think that those 2 are destroying this team on purpose most on this board know their track record over the years what else can it be? the stupidity and ineptness they have shown is mind numbing. these 2 can and probably will destroy the draft by getting players that can't play or they don't need and bringing in free agents who are over the hill, no drafting of o-lineman or running back and relying on samuels and thomas to return as starters next season.
