An Unrestricted Look at Injuries

Jason Reid talks about the impact of injuries on the team.

...

Yap Time

Thursday is chat day for Jason La Canfora, who'll be available at 1. Gene Wang brings the fantasy fubball jibba-jabba at noon.

...

I know this links to a baseball blog (shudder), but I thought you might want to weigh in on the poll, which asks which D.C. team will be next to win a championship. They left out D.C. United!

Sorry, got beep beeped. Reposting from previous entry

Didn't the Redskins do some direct snap to Portis stuff last year? I don't think JC split out wide as a WR, so not quite the "Wildcat" formation, but close to the same idea. I seem to remember them having success with it, so it wouldn't be incredibly foreign to the team.

They should hand out "gold" towels to all fans attending Mondays game. This way, all of the traveling Pittsburgh fans who wave their terrible towels won't have any impact at all, from a visual standpoint.

SWB,
Towels with Red on one side and gold on the other. That way it will look all trippy 2 color.

Here's what I hate about ESPN; making a football game into a damn spectacle:

MNF kicks off its election coverage

October 30, 2008 10:23 AM


Posted by ESPN.com's Matt Mosley

As many of you know, the "Monday Night Football" game between the Steelers and Redskins will take place near our nation's capital on the eve of the presidential election. I've just been informed that candidates John McCain and Barack Obama will have one last chance to address the American people -- on the MNF halftime show with Chris Berman. No, I'm serious.

Each candidate has agreed to tape an interview earlier in the day Monday, and it will run at approximately 10:15 p.m. ET. No word on whether ESPN will run highlights of Sunday's games while the candidates speak.

"We worked with our partners at the NFL to schedule a 'Monday Night Football' game in Washington on this special night, and this presents a unique opportunity for John McCain and Barack Obama to reflect upon the last few months and address a large primetime audience on the final day of the campaigns," said Norby Williamson, ESPN executive vice president, production.

We know the skins have been working on the wildcat. ARE even mentioned it in his interview with the steelers press this week. I do this week, giving the steelers something they haven't seen before and also giving the girlz something to think about over the bye. ARE would be my prefernece at the QB, however snapping directly to Portis ins not a bad idea.

Safety Ryan Clark revealed that he was fined $5,000 by the NFL for wearing eye black with the No. 21 etched into it Sunday. Clark said he did it to honor his late Redskins teammate Sean Taylor, who was murdered in his Florida home last year. Clark, who wears No. 25, wears a No. 21 practice jersey in honor of Taylor. Clark said he will continue to wear the eye black with "21" in it. ...

I think running is important, but you beat this team with quick hit passing and deep shots, like Eli hit on them on the 4th down play last week. Their corners are not good, Moss, Cooley, and ARE are our best weapons against them. CP will get some yards, but more importantly he needs to be ready for tough short yardage and goal line carries, you don't beat Pitt trying to "steamroll" them.

Wow, I don't normally do the Unrestricted thing (by the way, what is everyone else in the world restricted by?), but five minutes of poor-quality audio later, I just wanted to know how much money do I have to bring and how will we exchange the hostage?

I agree 4-12. If I were commish, Any time a player wanted to do something to commemorate the passing of a friend or family member it would go unpunished. Any time a team wants to wear a patch for something like that. Go for it. So long as you are not individually doing something to effect the uniform I have no problem.

Yeah Alex, but then you'd get some a-hole like Chad Johnson who takes it a step further and puts on eye black to shout out Malcolm X or O.J. Simpson or something and ruin it for everyone. I don't like what the NFL is doing with the rule, but since they can't legislate who is appropriate to commemorate and who is not it's better to just rule it all out. Again--I don't like it, but I understand it.

The old two-for-one buffet trick backfired.

Dan Linscomb, 40, of Texas City, Texas, ate the buffet at the Iron Skillet restaurant in northwest Atlanta on Oct. 21. He admitted, an Atlanta police report said, that his girlfriend “ate a couple bites from his plate.”

When he was charged for two $7 buffet meals, Linscomb refused to pay for one of them. He said that “there were no signs in the restaurant that said someone could not have some food off your plate,” the report said.

The restaurant staff called police, who came to the restaurant on Donald Lee Hollowell Parkway and arrested Linscomb on a charge of theft of services. He was taken to Fulton County Jail.

Linscomb got out of jail two days later after pleading guilty to a lesser charge of disorderly conduct, Fulton County sheriff’s Sgt. Nikita Hightower said.

Linscomb could not be reached for comment Wednesday afternoon. The Iron Skillet manager who was working when Linscomb was arrested, Jose Quintero, declined to comment.

I'm not even sure if O.J.'s mama still likes him after the jerk he's made himself over the last 15+ years. But my point is that the NFL probably recognizes that Clark was doing a good thing, but it's against the rules and they can't make exceptions. I think they had this problem with Reggie Bush when he was a rookie; when he was at USC he wore the eye black with 645 on it (or some number). He tried it in the NFL and got fined. I don't necessarily like the rule, but I understand it.

Portis and a couple other guys on the Skins still wear some sort of tribute to Sean under their jerseys, which is OK. Maybe Ryan Clark should go that route.

Isn't there some kind of risk in splitting the QB out wide? I mean, can't the DB/LB or whoever is assigned to him just lay him out? I wouldn't think that the "protect the pretty boy QB" rules apply if he's split out like a WR........They should be able to knock the cr@p oput of the guy, and say that they were in bump and run coverage. Although I will say that, these days, most QB's are like 6 foot 4, 220-230 and most DB's are much smaller......just thinking out loud.

And speaking of injuries, here's Thiesman's post:

http://views.washingtonpost.com/theleague/panelists/2008/10/money-creates-security.html

- I had an idea about this problem:

instead of individual players getting a salary, teams would work their budget by position - You could reward players not just by calling them a starter, but by paying them to be a starter. No more front loaded rookie contracts!!

Tonight is the night the Bobcats begin their quest for mediocrity! That's right folks, the Bobcats are not looking to a championship or even a playoff birth, despite what they claim.

The Bobcats are awful and it would be an accomplishment for them to be mediocre at the end of the year. They drafted the little loser PG DJ Augustine instead of the baller Derrick Rose. They drafted a dorky French Alexis Ajinca who averaged under FIVE MINUTES playing time in some French league PER GAME last year, and averaged like 4 points per game and 2 or 3 rebounds per game. That is in some FRENCH LEAGUE where they probably had NO players with NBA talent. What a great pick! Those are our two first round players this year baby!

Woot woot!

I was just using an example of what the league is trying to avoid. It's just like when we were in school--we're not allowed to chew gum in class because there's that one kid who leaves it under the desk or blows bubbles and smacks it while the teacher's talking. So therefore, the other 25 kids who could chew it and not make a jerk of themselves lose the right. I think that's the same principle the NFL is enacting.

Again--I don't like the eye black rule (especially in Ryan Clark's case), but I understand where the league is going with it.

From PGH on how to beat the Steelers...

"Since the debacle against the Eagles, the Steelers have turned to a short-to-intermediate passing game that they are hoping will nullify some of their opponents’ blitz schemes. The Steelers Offensive Line really struggles with delayed blitzes and stunts….one way to combat defensive pressure and compensate for an average line is to get the ball out of the QB’s hands as quickly as possible. Sounds good, right?

Well, quick slants to WRs and pop passes to the Tight End sound good in theory, but if your WRs can’t beat tight man coverage and your QB doesn’t trust his eyes and hesitates to deliver the ball quickly, you get what we saw this past Sunday vs the Giants"

Rogers and Smoot are gonna have to get up in the faces of the wide-outs...play tight, bump and run, knock them off their routes, the DL is gonna have to do a lot of twists, and stunting...

The Redskins should consider resting Santana Moss for this game against the Steelers better to have him miss one game & use the bye week to heal up then try & play him & have him make his hamstring injury wose then it already is & have him miss 3-4 games in the second half of the year when we need him most.
