10:15 Webchat On

Hey guys, the schedule is different now - no more morning practices - so there will be less newsy-ish posts in the AM, and more meaty updates in the afternoons, in general. I will fill the gaps with plenty of ramblins, though, so have no fear.

Also, we had to re-schedule my weekly webchat to 10:15 today because the Redskins made a late change to their media schedule for today, so I'll be over there for the next hour until player availability begins for us schlubs.

Hope you all had a great weekend and enjoyed the game.

Redskins vs. Jets -- After Further Review

Rich Tandler Aug 18, 2008

Rich Tandler takes a look back at the game against the Jets and keys in on some hot topics.

Jason Campbell

It’s not like going 4 for 10 for 28 yards is completely irrelevant, it’s just incomplete information. It’s like trying to judge a Miss American contestant by looking at one of her arms.

Football games ebb and flow. Quarterbacks sometimes start out hot and cool off as the defense adjusts. On other occasions the offense has to adjust to what the defense is doing and the QB finds his stride as the game goes on.

While there’s no guarantee that Campbell would have caught fire had this been a real game, it’s safe to say that he would not have gone 16 for 40 for 112 yards (his numbers projected out over four quarters).

It also needs to be said that the same can be said of his two previous games, when he started out hot.

I know that there is impatience when it comes to finding out what the Redskins have in Campbell. Unfortunately, we won’t even begin to know until September 4.

Bubble Watch

Billy McMullen had a drop late in the first half but he did wind up catching three passes for 53 yards including a 37-yard grab that jump started the Redskins late drive to take the lead. Anthony Mix, on the other hand, watched the game from the sideline, nursing a rib injury. He will have to get in there and make some catches if he’s going to beat out McMullen.

Along the defensive line, both tackle Ryan Boschetti and end Rob Jackson appeared to bolster their chances, although the two remain long shots to make the final cut. Boschetti batted down a couple of passes and made two tackles behind the line of scrimmage while Jackson got a sack.

Vernon Fox may have played his way onto the bubble with some shoddy tackling, especially in the Jets’ final drive. It appears that both Kareem Moore, who started the game, and Chris Horton are safe. Will Blache want to hold on to the veteran Fox or let him go to open up a roster spot and let Shawn Springs play free safety in a pinch? Justin Hamilton made some solid tackles but he’s probably auditioning for another team or to be an injury replacement for the Skins.

I’m not sure that Marcus Mason belongs in a discussion of bubble players any more.

The Winning Drive

I don’t want to make a big deal out of something that ultimately is meaningless, but I really liked the Colt Brennan-led drive to give the Redskins the lead. Joe Gibbs would open every two-minute drill with a draw play that would gain eight yards and cost 30 seconds. Zorn went deep and all of a sudden the Redskins were in New York territory after the 37-yard completion.

Then, after the defense was back on its heels, came the draw and Mason made a nice gain. Two plays later the defensive back gambled for the pick and Jason Goode made the catch and rolled in for the score.

Other Notes

--Devin Thomas, the Redskins’ top draft pick, did not have a stellar debut and, unlike Campbell, he played a lot. Kelly Jonson on Comcast reported at halftime that Thomas “had his tongue hanging out” as he went into the locker room, and then he played in the third quarter. He did not have a catch; he had a good shot at one but Derrick Devine led him out of bounds. In all, he got a big-time lesson in the speed of the game at this level.

--I noticed that Anthony Montgomery was in the game in the third quarter alongside Boschetti and Jackson. I checked and Kedric Golston did start at defensive tackle. I don’t know if this means that Golston has won back the job he had in 2006, but I’ll certainly have an eye to see if he starts next week.

--Eric Mangini showed that he is a twit for going for the field goal and overtime with five seconds left. Play like you have to score a touchdown or go home. He got what he deserved.

Rock's long run was emblematic of the direction of his career ... hearing footsteps and looking back ... and not taking it all the way because of it. Remove that long run (73 yards) and his 6 for 90 becomes 5 for 17. His yards after contact were essentially zero. Same with his receiving yards -- catch and stopped. And that was mostly second team time for the Jets D (though the Jets D was much better than it was last season). In that screen behind Jansen and Sellers, Rock lost his concentration and didn't wait for the block to set up (though that might have been J. Campbell as the impatient one). Betts, on the other hand, was a beast. YAC was major.

I can't tell whether the love for Betts (by Jimzorn and Sherman Smith) is because Betts really is having that great of an early season or because they are trying to maintain his trade value. Portis/Betts/Cartwright are all the same vintage roster-wise, so keeping Betts is bad news for Rock. The other bad sign I saw for Rock was Mason on special teams TACKLES ... which is one of Rock's main keeping points.

Re: Westbrook, I stand by my statement that he is superior to ARE. For PR stats, the important bit is not about absolute yards, but field position. The one thing Westbrook would need to work on is when to call fair catch ... but the other two guys who are supposed to be there to block for him are supposed to help out with that. Other than the one muff (Richardson covers on the 10), when Westbrook did field a punt (i.e. not fair catch or not let it bounce for touch back), he was beyond the 20 ... to the 31 and to the 27.

ARE rarely starts out running forward on PR.

The best thing for us is to trade Betts before final cuts and move Mason to #2 on RBs and keep Cartwright as #3 Main Special Teams player/captin.......

We already know what Betts can do during an actual game. Can't get a yard when we need it and fumbles on key drives.....

[In a move inspired by PDiddy's younger days, I took notes during the game.]

Re: Tandler, I agree that Boschetti had an outstanding game and by my count looks like the #5 DT (Cornelius, Monty, Golsten, LoZo). Though peeps here seemed to be thinking the Jasons and others are pimping Evans for insider dope, I think Evans has big upstepped ... and can do the DE/DT sliding that Daniels did. Khary Campbell also was money, esp. on s-teams ... I never noticed he was so fast. I think those three s-teamers/depthers are back.

My notes also indicate that Curtis Gatewood (#56) and Matt Sinclair (#58) had some noteworthy plays.

The repeat standout all over the place was Kareem Moore.

Finally, there were two guys who came up repeatedly who were big beneficiaries of mis-throws and/or drops by Jets' receivers: #22 and #52 ... so maybe their knees aren't entirely ready for primetime.

Also, today is LaVar's 1st day on the radio at 1pm. Don't know what thew convo will be, but there is no way he can't include the redskins since he is doing a DC Radio gig.

My girlfriend and I want to go on a fantastic trip soon. We were looking for ideas. Anyone have any awesome spots? A means to save some cash would be awesome as well. Traveling is wallet draining these days.

We went to Fiji recently. It was an fantastic vacation. We stayed at this nice little Bungalow called the Beach Sands. But, if your looking to save money, it's a very expensive plane ticket. Another option is Puerto Vallarta, I have a awesome time whenever I go. As far as saving dough, I don;t know for sure, we usually go with expeida or travelocity. My uncle tells me that he usually saves a lot of dough on his trips. I'll ask him how he does it.
