Carlos Speaks/Eubanks Signed To Active Roster (UPDATED)

Said he remains in "good spirits" and is trying to keep a positive mental outlook. The crazy thing is his two best friends - both teammates of his at Auburn and fellow 2005 first round picks - Ronnie Brown and Cadillac Williams also already went down for the season with knee injuries.

Rogers said: "We're all like, 'What's going on? What did we do wrong?"

Rogers said now the trio will likely rehab together in the offseason and push each other to get stronger.

Carlos said he expects to miss 5-6 months and be fine for training camp, but added, "I'm going to push myself to get back before that."

He admits the timing stinks, as he was starting to really come into his own and become a more complete and consistent corner. But, "sometimes things happen in football and there's nothing you can do about it." He said he wants to be a part of film study and game plan meetings the next few weeks as he prepared for surgery, wanting to continue to gain knowledge on opposing offenses, and he'll cheer on his teammates as best he can until leaving for surgery.

CB John Eubanks said he just signed his contract and is on the active roster from the practice squad.
Skins could sign a LB to the practice squad today as well.

That really sucks for 'Los, I thought he was becomming a very reliable corner. He still needs to work on his man covergae skills and tackling in the open field, but he was starting to become a good #2 corner. I hope he won't loose a step.

In all seriousness, I'm afraid that my worst fears about this season starting in Week 3-4 are coming true. The injuries on offense are beginning to tire out, and injure, the defense.

Unless these backup corners step up and play above their abilities, and unless the offense becomes just average, this season could spiral into disaster.

Posted by: jcabana | October 30, 2007 1:51 PM | Report abuse

I hope those guys work hard. They all had really high expectations coming out of Auburn and they all haven't really made good on their potential yet. Cadillac Williams had a good first half of a rookie year and Carlos and Ronnie Brown were looking to have good years this year... but so far, they haven't done too much.

Here's to '08 and healthy knees.

I thought this is worth reposting from the previous thread. Not because we should re-hash that whole thing again, but because I think it beautifully summarises why people think 'running up the score' is a bad thing. I agree. I think I understand why Belichick does it, but I agree with AMTTS.

Sorry I'm late on this. Regarding that 'I don't blame Belichick post', I can't believe it. I cannot believe I just read that. I don't want to get high and mighty but I think it's inevitable.

Would you coach your son that way? Would you tell him: 'Pick on the weaker kids to make yourself feel better'? See that fat kid over there? Yeah son, go mock him and then steal his money while he's crying.

If you've played sports at any kind of level (even down in little league) then you have the slightest inclination as to how astoundingly bush league running up the score is. I don't want the league to set aside the result because the pats are mean. What I do want is for the general public to realize that this is not the way you do things. And frankly, it starts with those that cover the teams.

Once it's 38-0 in the 4th, the game is over. We haven't managed a loud sneeze on offense and we haven't stopped a thing on D. Going on 4th (what do you want me to do, kick a field goal?), throwing bombs to Moss, running the spread and keeping Brady in there to pad his stats is an obnoxious slap in the face.

What were you doing when Jerry Glanville was running up the score when he coached Houston? Calling him a stud? Was he chasing ghosts? We all know that he was a classless a-hole and he got what's coming to him. Remember when Houston got worse and the Bengals, under Sam Wyche called timeout to bring in the FG kicker to make it 61-7? I do.

You don't do that to grown men, to professionals, amateurs, kids. You beat us fair and square. You kicked our butts. Shake hands and go onto the next one.

When you lionize a despicable cheater with 0 character and regard for his fellow professionals, you do a great disservice to those that have spent their lives playing and coaching others the right way. It is insulting to read a canonization of a guy that would have his head thrown at on a baseball field.

There are rules in sports and then there are rules of sports. This bitter, self-serving goon does not obey either. I am still shocked and dismayed that anyone can say that's he's doing the right things when any little league coach in America would tell you that its smug and gutless and completely without class. There is no justification and no way to explain it away; especially if you have been on both sides of beatings in your athletic career.

Am I frustrated with the skins inability to stop them or score? Of course. I'm more frustrated that we didn't go down fighting. You want to leave Brady in to run up the score? Fine, here's a late hit and a broken femur. Enjoy your playoff run.

As disappointed as I am in the skins, my sadness is tenfold at the reactions of those that cover the games. JLC, I can't believe it. I only hope you intend to raise your son better than the words you typed. Anything but a condemnation of this despicable scumbag endorses values that are not welcome in a civilized world.

Respectfully submitted,

Hope Carlos recovers fully because he was finally playing at an NFL level -- though clearly not a number one CB. Skins have done a good job with high picks ... when they keep the picks. There are a lot of busts at the top. But Taylor, Landry, Rocky and Campbell are all solid calls. I wasn't thrilled with the Landry choice but he looks like a good call (I preferred the D-line guy who has also been good).

Skins real issue will be the lines. Say what you will about Brady, etc, but the Pats are amazing in the trenches. That is where they win -- its still so huge. And that is what the Skins need to do. Next week, next month, next year.

I thought this is worth reposting from the previous thread. Not because we should re-hash that whole thing again, but because I think it beautifully summarises what people think.

Nate/All other Regulars,

Without getting someones briefs in a bunch, Could I have a soap box momment?

Seriously, I want you explain this whole code of ethics on a blog.
If the comments people post are that troubling to you, then why not start your own private blog. I see "regulars" personally attack others all the time. Where is your yellow beanbag for them? Since you have drinks and hang out with them they get a pass right?

Implementing registration will not stop people from posting their views and thoughts, no matter how filled of douche juice you and/or others think they may contain. I know people posting false comments using anothers screen name is not cool, I just have bigger things to worry about then someone taking my blog handle. Probably you and some others were the first ones that asked The Washington Post to start some sort of message board, however that doesn't give you or any other so called regular to start bashing another persons opinion. (Not saying YOU do) Just because you would sell your soul for a Redskins super bowl win, while I may only sell my car, figuratively speaking, does not make me any less of a fan. Just because my views on the Redskins maybe considered too critical or harsh dosen't mean that I need to pick another team to cheer for. You and the "regs" seem to constantly give this team a pass. Why?
If I or anyone else chooses to express our disatisfaction with the team, we're met with some comments that stem from football to personally related. But, because they are the alphas and omegas of the blog, they have some sort of diplomatic immunity? They can't be touched, and when they are the so-called violator or trouble makers are told to play nice. You guys are not the damn dictators, and by complaining to your buddies at the WaPo dosen't make you stand out in front of anyone else.

I have a lot more to address. If you don't like it don't read it, but you know you will.

For a while I thought this was his last year and henceforth the reason they went and got the FA's and traded picks that they had refrained from doing in the past.

Since then it occurred to me that unlike Gibbs 1.0 who had Family, Church and an already purchased NASCAR team (not rosey coloured glasses here just the truth) BB has little if anything in terms of family and outside interests. He must stay because it's all he has.

(unless they attack me of course because Muhammad doesn't play that) Some of us just rather look at positive things and by no means does that give the team a pass. For me after a really close friend died in May and making two trips to New Orleans the game just doesn't mean that much to me. There are more important things in life to worry about. Now let me get off the soap box and give myself a slap to the back of the damn head just because.

For someone who has more important things to worry about than somebody taking a blog handle, whoever wrote that sure has a lot of time on his hands to worry about getting bashed on the Internet.

It doesn't bother me when people are critical of the Redskins. I am critical of the Redskins myself. When I see someone that is critical in a way that most of us (as educated fans) have discussed ad nauseam, then I might say something back. If I don't agree, I might also respond.

My problem is when people post obscene, borderline-obscene or complete-drivel posts with all caps. That's just a waste of everyone's time. I think that's why some people want registration - to bring a halt to the total trolls who don't contribute anything coherent -- or to the filth-posters who submit dirty comments unacceptable to an environment bearing the Washington Post name.

I can't speak for anyone else, but if someone bashes my opinions here, it's their prerogative. If I have time and inclination, I will respond in kind. If I don't have either, I'll let it slide. Seems simple enough to me.

Stop whining about what the Pats did. Wilbon was right. And while we saw what the Pats did on offense, anyone notice how relatively easily the Skins moved the ball when trailing 52-0. Maybe BB did call the dogs off on defense so Gibbs didn't have the added embarrassment of being shut out.

And fwiw, if I was running down the clock in a blowout game, its a lot easier to do when I have the ball. Another first down is another 2 minutes of game clock. So going for it on 4th down meant my defense had to play less. Yup, I'd do it too.

I'm not sure how you'd know "what most people think" on this blog but I rarely see "regulars" fight. If by "regulars" you mean people who have been on the blog and active for some time.

If you mean people who regularly show up like boofer and those then I guess they argue but I don't think I've seen Pulldown Claw, Etrod, Nate, JM, AM2dStix, The Gov, Lisa, MegskinsJcab, Bangkokben or Dorf really go at each other.


I'm not saying it hasn't ever happened but of the people who came on here last year I rarely, if ever, see true anamosity. Most don't even really mix it up with Newbies. (Me being the exception of course :)

It doesn't really matter how long you've been on here anyway. RC has been on here a short time but he's pretty much universally accepted because he rarely if ever slings mud like yours truly. Adam if FRICKIN EAGLES FAN and I don't mind him. I never thought i'd say that but it's true.

While Germans, Irish, British, and Dutch were busy trying to buy land for rocks and beads, at least they weren't committing genocide like the Portugese and Spanish of those days. I would put those acts right up there with the holocaust (Jewish genocide) and enslavement. Although, slavery was more a product of tribes of Africa capturing each others members and selling them to the white folk, as opposed to the white folk just plucking up innocent bystanders on the road.

AMTTS,

You are one of the all time great bloggers up here and I was with you till this part, "You want to leave Brady in to run up the score? Fine, here's a late hit and a broken femur. Enjoy your playoff run."

You were so pure and right on up till there. I'm going to paraphrase Ghandi here and say that you have to BE the change you want to see in the world.

I played HS football, soccer, and baseball and DIII college football and there is a code of ethics in sports. It has been almost completely dismantled and there are justifiable times when it should be ignored. But no matter how much I hated this loss and the fact that Belichick ran it up, I would never advocate cheap shots for the sake of revenge.

You get mad props in my book AMTTS and I completely understand the disgust with the lack of fight, but you've got to play the game right.

I sort of agree Larry Bud, sort of. When I was playing sports in MS, HS, though I can remember one time our team was getting beat ragged in basketball. Our guys were good but we must have been the youngest combined team in the league, these were definitely the best. They specifically had one guy who they would give the ball to, and he would pretty much jump over the rest of us to score. At the time I was the biggest person on the team and coach left it up to me to do what he asked. He said next time that guy goes up to do his fancy little dunk, punch him in his SJK. So I did what any impressionable kid would, I pretended to block and did what I was told. He was fast though, I missed and got a face full of SJK. But anyways, if someone knows that you are down, you don't kick em unless you expect the deranged and crazy to come out in em. I still think its our fault for not stopping the Pats, and they should score on us if we can't stop em; but they better expect something crazy to happen if the normal isn't working.

The Redskins -and their coach - have too much class to be engaged in retaliation against Tom Brady late in the game.

Let Dwight Freeney (Colts), Ray Lewis (Ravens) or James Farrior (Steelers) do that.... And don't worry, if that meathead Belichick keeps pushing it, someone will.

My problem is when people post obscene, borderline-obscene or complete-drivel posts with all caps. That's just a waste of everyone's time. I think that's why some people want registration - to bring a halt to the total trolls who don't contribute anything coherent -- or to the filth-posters who submit dirty comments unacceptable to an environment bearing the Washington Post name.

How will registration stop this. The registration movement started because a few regulars were upset when people stole their name. How pathetic. If you think this is the same as identity theft, you do not have any idea what is really going on in the world.

Our 'last place' schedule gets us two 'parity' games against the last place teams from other divisions. That would be Tampa and AZ, who are both 2nd place teams this season. Woulda been nicer to play Rams and Atlanta :).

Rest of schedule has Skins playing teams they can beat. Though I doubt they can beat Cowboys twice, divisional games often product upsets.

9 games

The Bears, Bills (who are really much better than their record), Vikings and Jets all have major QB problems. Not to say that they can't win, but they are all games where Skins should get a W.

Win all 4 of the 'should win' games and that gets us to 8 wins.

That leaves 5 games against tough teams. Dallas x2, Eagles, Giants and TB.

Win 2 of the tough games and we are up to 10 wins. Win 3 (a split with Dallas would help a lot) and its 11 and we are in the playoffs.

10 wins might not be enough for playoffs if the Lions/Packers continue to win -- though Giants seem to be real deal and could win 11 or more. We do hold tie breaker with Detroit, which is good news.

10 wins in the NFC east is a very good number. Outside of the division, the NFC East is 15-6!! Only the AFC South 17-3!!! is better by that measure.

Anyone see Dre Bly get burned 2x by Jennings last night including the game-winner? And we almost traded for that guy. While everyone likes to bash us for offseason spending sprees, look at Denver. On the rebuilding scene, I'd say they are behind the Skins and they've had their share of injuries and miscalculations along their D-line. They use former Browns in and out of their line-up like we use Jets.

I think I kind of look at things now like we'll be in some physical, hard fought games from here on out. The Jets are a super smart football team. Very well coached. It will come down to the last play for sure. Yeah, that's kind of the way I look at things.

"With a running back like Adrian Peterson, I would be licking my chops," George said later. "With that running back, you need someone who can throw that deep ball, and I know I still can. I don't care about the talent at receiver."

Too bad he also doesn't care if there's a receiver there to catch the pass or not.

I must have missed where I said anything about identity theft. I also missed the point where I chose a side. Oh, and I'm glad you read the Washington Post moderator's minds, and they've told you exactly why they are going (back) to a registration format.

Registration means you can kill someone's account if they get out of hand, and they have to re-register. It forces the trolls, spammers and dirty-posters to jump through more hoops to put up their crap, thus discouraging the laziest ones from doing so. It's a pretty standard model for moderating Internet forums.

If someone is willing to create multiple accounts and re-register after their account is killed just to call people names or troll, then that person truly is a loser -- and I welcome the chance to ridicule them with open arms.

Is everyone assuming now we go corner in the draft? I haven't heard a single name of a great corner coming out and I can't name you a 1st round corner from the last 5 drafts that has performed up to what was expected. I mean even Rogers, the 9th overall pick, was arguably the 3rd best corner on the team. I think you can find solid corners in the middle rounds and in FA better than first round picks. I still say we need a DE in the 1st round to put opposite Carter, then a corner, then OLine for the rest of the draft.

"It wasn't particularly shocking that the Redskins were blown out; the stunner was that they just sat there and took it, that the Redskins were content to be bullied and humiliated. Those of us who've been waiting through the Gibbs II era for the Redskins to develop an identity didn't see them moving in any definitive direction Sunday in Foxborough.

The Redskins' coaches shouldn't have to say a word. The players, sensing what was going on, should have done whatever necessary to drill Brady right in his strike zone. If Brady walked off the field without help, it would have meant the Redskins didn't hit him hard enough. If it brought a penalty or two, so what? The score was meaningless at that moment. Establishing the team's willingness to make the Patriots pay for their boldness is all that should have mattered.

Sorry, but I can't imagine Sam Huff not tattooing Brady before he finally left the field. Football isn't golf. Maybe I'm longing too much for the good old days of Butkus and Nitschke, Night Train Lane, the Raiders of Lyle Alzado, the Steelers of any era, even now, players who snorted and pointed at the quarterback and made him fear for his own safety. Let's see if Belichick takes the same risks with Brady against the Steelers (Dec. 9) and Ravens (Dec. 3). Neither of those teams is half as good as New England right now, but there's a personality about both, an identity, that suggests there's a line in the turf where football ends and team pride begins."

Mike H.- As a minority (African American, Are you surprised?)I find it terrible that you would stoop to such a level for the sole purpose of entertainment. Forgive me, but I don't think that was your attempt to be funny. There are some lines in life you don't cross. I wouldn't try and "Put words in your mouth". No matter how thoughtless your comments maybe, you have the distinction of speaking for yourself. I don't care what your excuse is for making those bigotry laced comments. Its obvious that on some level you may feel that way. Now if I were to say "You know white people are nothing but thieves. They took the land from the Native Americans, stole and enslaved Africans, and made an attempt to steal "The Holy Land" from the muslims. Then back this up by saying "Haha, I was only kidding", that would make me look very ignoramus. To be honest, I would've respected you for the fact that you were brave enough to stand by your opinion, but the fact you try to hide behind humor, tasteless at that, just shows or much of a coward you really are.


I was glad to see people posting expressing the negativity behind the comment that was made. It made me very sad to see some actually found humor in that.

Here is one of the many comments from people that think identity theft is happening on this blog.

Posted by: Get a clue people | October 30, 2007 4:01 PM | Report abuse

>>> If you've played sports at any kind of level (even down in little league) then you have the slightest inclination as to how astoundingly bush league running up the score is.

I was involved in a game where one team - well, let's just say that they could score at will, while the other team had been struggling all season long. So when it got to late in the game, the really good team said, in a show of good sportsmanship, that they'd be willing to call the game. The team getting their butts kicked said that they were there to play, start-to-finish; they didn't want to call the game early. They told the good team to keep playing, and to keep playing hard. What happened? The next play the good team threw a length-of-the-field TD pass. The not-so-good team just laughed at how much they were sucking, but kept playing. It got worse, but no one cried. It's just a game. Try harder next week.

If the 'Skins have the energy to take it personally that they're getting their butts whooped, then why not use that energy on the field? And if the 'Skins are going to retaliate by taking cheap shots late in the game because some other team is way better than them, then why not take those cheap shots early in the game at a time when it can actually impact the game and maybe provide them with the win?

Not that the 'Skins did either, and not that I advocate cheap shots, (or think it would have worked against NE with their stable of WRs) but...

Remember when Tennessee beat up on St Louis in the Super Bowl, beating down the WRs in an effort to slow them down, make them think, and otherwise disrupt the passing game? And it worked?

Well, I tend to think there was more to the "beating them down" than a few hard shoulder tackles. And watching the Redskins and the Pats, it seemed like all that was going on early were hard shoulder tackles. Ya know, Welker took a few good ones, but any decent NFLer is probably laughing at a shoulder tackle.

What ever happened to the Body Bag days? Ya know, when Philly and Washington played one another and they hated each other so much that everyone went out with an injury and Brian Mitchell was the QB? Again, not that I would advocate cheap shots and stuff, but we let NE walk all over us.

Ya know what makes me laugh? The fans who are so incensed over the Redskins getting beat down so badly that they say "pay back" like it means something. Do you really think NE cares? I'm sure they're thinking, "hey, if y'all want us, next year we'll just have a 16-game @Redskin Park schedule." Trust me, NE is not worried about paybacks - especially being as that they're in the AFC and... won't it be like 4 years before we even see them again? (I don't pay attention enough to how scheduling works to know for sure) How different do you think our two teams will be in four years?

:p

Mike H, the name doesn't offend me personally, but I've learned there is no utility in denying people with an otherwise legitimate gripe from feeling offended by use of a name or stereotype. As for the original intent, I'm not sure that makes much of a difference. The original namer (George Marshall, I think) had some other ideas about excluding/labeling people and has some of his own historical baggage. My thought is just that there can't be too much harm in updating the name, esp. in the interest of expanding the consumer base.

On corners in the draft, I'm not sure the college season is far enough along for CBs to stand out yet. That said, my guess would be that this year's single high-paying FA pick up (like last season's Fletcher) would be a corner. I'm not sure about who got locked up for longer term contracts so far this season, but I have a recollection that Asante Samuel might have only been tagged rather than signed for a longer term. Not sure about Nnamdi Asomugha (sp?), from Oakland, but that's the guy I'd target.

Seconding Jack's "Preach On" comment. We don't even need Huff. I think Taylor would have done it if Double-G had only put him in position to give him a solid, clean hit. Heck, LaVar did it to old Aikman. :)

Larry Bud,

You know what man, you're right. I meant that in the sense of 'it would be justice if something bad happened' but it came out like I'm advocating cheap shots. You are 100% correct. I would never have had one of the kids I coached throw at a player or something else of that nature because you have to be above it.

I still feel like it (an injury to brady)is the only way to stop the belichick menace because he's not going to adjust on his own with columnists and talking heads singing his praises.

It is also upsetting to me how the commissioner can come down so hard on players for their transgressions but a scumbag like this can continue to ignore league rules and do as he pleases. (I think Lisa said that too)

Anyway, not trying to save the world here. Just wanted to throw the beacon up and let anyone watching know that you don't have to swallow the misguided praise for a mad man.

Did someone call me a wannabe troll? I think I should ITA but mostly I'm confused.

I don't have time to get into a big debate on the moniker "Redskins", but hey, at least we're not talking about the Pats game.

Off to class, the Dorf Abides.

Bears are known to be very sensitive. And, their lack of opposable thumbs has rendered them helpless to author their true feelings.

How much have recent rule changes influenced scoring in the NFL (not the one's prohibiting the use of cameras to intercept the opponents signals)? The rules encourage scoring, right?

Doesn't this contribute to the gaudy statistics that the Patriots are putting up this year?

New promo everyone. Buy Premium Seats for the '08 season for the bargain price of $4000 per seat and get free tickets to the Dallas v. Skins game in December. They will be limited view seats that go for $20 per seat but hey it's something.

My only comment is God bless Carlos Rogers and best of luck to him in his rehab. These are young men out there on the field each week. They wreck their bodies for our entertainment. Bellicheck showed no dignity on sunday, so why immitate him here in this forum?

bobisimo, that was quick. Any ideas about the terms left in the deal for CB Leigh Bodden (Browns)? Looks like he's in his fifth year (and he's originally from Hyattsville!).

Note: the fake me earlier today noticed my eccentric props for the Lions ... who I still think have a shot at a wild card spot (b/c the Vikings and the Bears are dead, esp. the Bears, don't let Griese fool you ... he is not good). As of this past weekend, I also think the Browns might have a shot (based on the misery that is the Bengals, as well as the injury stifling of the Ravens).

The one problem with trying to sign Nanana Asmwha (sic) in the off-season is that he will command really big FA dollars, and the Skins won't have much cap space to play with. The draft will be the only affordable place to get a premium CB and DE for a few more years.

So like Jack said: Draft a DE, then CB, then lots of offensive linemen.

Skins Realist,

I'm not hiding behind humor. It was actually intended to be humorous and plenty of people found it to be so. I was making fun of the stereotypes and pop-culture surrounding american indians, not the american indians themselves. Obviously, I don't believe they sold Landover for fire water and beads. Obviously, I don't think John Wayne movies are documentaries. With all due respect, if you thought those remarks were intended to be serious you are far too sensitive.

I'm not sure how to respond to your question whether I'm surprised that you are black, so I will just ignore it. I didn't give any thought to your race or sex. I don't think it is relevant.

If you said those things about white people it would be an entirely different situation. White people actually did enslave black people. They actually did force american indians from their lands. None of the things I said in jest were based on fact but were intended to be OBVIOUS fictions.

The name is not offensive. When people hear "Redskin" they think about a football team, not about american indians. It doesn't mean or refer to american indians anymore, it refers to a football team.

I tend to agree with CW, that he'll be (too?) expensive, but...

As for Leigh Bodden, he's got a 4-year contract that he signed in 2005.

Has anyone espoused this view yet?:

Players whining and complaining about a team running up the score is worse than actually running the score up!

Both situations are wrong, but by calling attention to the fact is pitiful and I think that is the last thing you'd want to be labled as, if you're a pro ballplayer.

What really burns me here is the coaching staff's inability to play together as a team - hey, there's a novel concept in a team sport.

Grilliams is playing his Defense based on what he deems the offense can do instead of what the other team can do. Big Al schemes in imaginary land while his philosophy is in competition with Gibbs. Gibbs is trying to GM and manage the field game at the same time. And Snyder is channelling Emperor Palpatine w/ Hollywood Exiles creating their own chain of TCCL Excercise Stores accross the Nation (Side question here: does Danny have to become a Scientologist in order to do business with the Risky One?)

3 Guys (well, 5 - if you include Cruise) who deem themselves as automomous under a despot like The Danny... I hope we find a way out soon! The players, like their injuries (Louise Hay, anyone??) are Hamstrung!

Is everyone assuming now we go corner in the draft? I haven't heard a single name of a great corner coming out and I can't name you a 1st round corner from the last 5 drafts that has performed up to what was expected. I mean even Rogers, the 9th overall pick, was arguably the 3rd best corner on the team. I think you can find solid corners in the middle rounds and in FA better than first round picks. I still say we need a DE in the 1st round to put opposite Carter, then a corner, then OLine for the rest of the draft.

Posted by: Jack | October 30, 2007 03:51 PM

Jack, most people here would not be upset any tears if Skins pick either a DE or a corner in the first round could. Either pick could fill a need and help our pass defense. As for the first round corners being hit or miss, the same uncertainty also applies to DEs. The highest picked DE in the last years draft, Gaines Adams, has 1.5 sacks this season, Jamal Anderson, the second highest picked DE, has 0 sacks, Adam Carriker, the third highest picked DE has 1 sack. In other words, 3 highest picked DEs collectively accounted for whooping 2.5 sacks this season. Is anybody complaining now about getting Landry over these three guys?

Redcoat--

You were Skippy? Man, I didn't want to know that. Mind you, Skippy's brilliant, but I wanted to think there was a Skippy. Were your the original Skippy or a Skippy impersonator?

Posted by: talent evaluator | October 30, 2007 02:04 PM

Relax talent evaluator...He may be an impersonator but he ain't the real deal.

Redcoat is a lying sack o' carp and a plagarizing fool. I am Skippy, and have been for years. I have hundreds of exchanges from other forums saved on my computer.

If you'd like a sampling write me in care of Skippy's address Imskippy95@Aol.Com and I'll send them along. Who I am on this baord doesn't matter. Like the Lone Ranger, I keep my identity a secret.

Only self-aggrandizing wannabes like Redcoat try to claim the credit they haven't earned, and they should be ashamed.

Oh wait. Unless it's an Homage....
