NFL, Redskins condemn Clinton Portis comments

Last week, tight end Chris Cooley drew the head coach's ire for revealing a small part of team strategy on the radio. This week, running back Clinton Portis has one-upped him, drawing a rebuke from the league for comments he made during his paid radio appearance.

On Tuesday afternoon, Portis apologized for comments he made on 106.7 The Fan Tuesday morning on the controversy surrounding Ines Sainz, the TV Azteca television reporter who was allegedly sexually harassed in the New York Jets' locker room last week.

Portis issued a statement through the team, saying: "I was wrong to make the comments I did, and I apologize. I respect the job that all reporters do. It is a tough job and we all have to work and act in a professional manner. I understand and support the team on these issues."

The NFL also came down on Portis earlier Tuesday but apparently has asked the Redskins to deal with the running back.

"The comments are clearly inappropriate, offensive and have no place in the NFL," league spokesman Greg Aiello said in a statement. "We have contacted the Redskins and they will discuss the matter directly with Mr. Portis."

The Redskins also issued a statement Tuesday afternoon. Tony Wyllie said: "The Washington Redskins have a clear and unambiguoous policy about being professional on these issues and we will take the necessary steps to remind everyone about it."

The Post's Dan Steinberg has transcribed Portis's full comments, but Portis essentially offered something of a defense for the Jets' players and their alleged behavior.

"I think men are gonna tend to turn and look and want to say something to that woman," Portis said on "The Mike Wise Show with Holden Kushner," his first weekly appearance of the season.

"You put a woman and you give her a choice of 53 athletes, somebody got to be appealing to her," he said. "You know, somebody got to spark her interest, or she's gonna want somebody. I don't know what kind of woman won't, if you get to go and look at 53 men's packages. And you're just sitting here, saying, 'Oh, none of this is attractive to me.' I know you're doing a job, but at the same time, the same way I'm gonna cut my eye if I see somebody worth talking to, I'm sure they do the same thing."

Women have no place in a men's locker room - - and men have no place in a women's locker room. Just keep reporters of any stripe or sex out of the locker rooms.

Perhaps Shanny is smart enough to wait until after the Tenn v. Washington game to make just such a trade.

Cant happen then, it would have to happen before Nov 1st. The trade deadline this year is Oct. 31.

The Skins vs Titans is Nov 21st. Would have to happen before that game.


And Reed Doughboy is awful in coverage. The sooner Kareen Moore gets back, the better.

I almost wish the players' union could get involved, but sexual harrassment issues invariably give women the upper hand.

Just how much more access do they need when no one really needs more coverage of a game the viewers just saw?

And who reads or listens to reportage 'from the locker room of naked footballers' anyways?

The need for immediate access is as over-rated as the harassment claim.

People who are denied pay raise/promotion, are touched inappropriately have legitimate harassment claims.

Roger Goodell could end this by instituting a 30 minute 'dressing' period after which requested players could be approached--fully clothed--for interview.

No player should be allowed to leave for 35-45 minutes after a game.

I see Yankees' players interviewed in the lockerroom, but they are dressed.

Too, the players are allowed to limit the number of ridiculous, "What was going through your mind when that 96 mph fastball hit you upside your head?" questions, too.

I understand your view, but in my opinion it's perfectly appropriate for business such as the Redskins to expect one of its very high profile, well known employees to adhere to certain standards of conduct on and off the job when such conduct becomes a matter of public discorse. He's not a 7-11 clerk - he's paid millions of dollars to publicly represent the NFL and the Redskins and it's therefore very reasonable to expect such an individual to behave in an acceptable manner. This is why the NFLPA has agreed to standard "bad-actor" language in the form NFL contract. One can debate the length of Big Ben's punishment for his latest bar escapade, for example, but there's no doubt that he, as one of the faces of the NFL and the Steelers, publicly embarassed his employer, so he deserved to be punished. And more importantly, both his contract and the collective bargaining agreement require him to behave decently and authorize punishment if he doesn't.

Many, many other high profile/senior people in all sorts of professions have been fired for things that happen out of the office. The NFL is far from the only private business that cares about these issues.

ZEKE’S UNIQUE PERSPECTIVES
The Beating dallas Edition, once again, brought to you by the wonderful people at Yahoo!

Part 1

A win over dallas is always special, but how about the extra pain inflicted? All those ‘puke fans screaming as if they’d won, only to have it denied on a penalty. Nothing like an anguished ‘puke fan.

A few pats on the back for me. In the season preview, I wrote that dallas had a weakness, not just in their OL, but in TEs and RBs that could be used to assist in pass protection. That played a major role, as dallas simply didn’t trust their pass pro. Instead, they relied on quick passes that proved ineffective, as mistakes undermined their ability to move the ball reliably. I also expected the Redskins to excel with our non-OL pass protectors, and that happened. Portis had modest run stats, but he was a key difference maker with blitz-ups. I also called out QB health as a high risk issue for all QBs in the NFC East. 3 of the guys I mentioned creating this risk were osi umenyiora, Clay Matthews and Julius Peppers. Matthews concussed the iggle QB, osi concussed Matt Moore and Peppers took down Matt Stafford. I’d also clued people up here about alex barron and how inept he looked. Pretty good run for me in week 1. But enough of me praising me (at least for now).

Time to praise the real heroes of the week, our guys in burgundy tops and gold pants.

Here’s what I liked a lot. Our coaches. This team was prepared. The last few seasons, we weren’t ready in week 1. In many games, we were bad in the 1st quarter. This team was ready from the opening kickoff. Another problem that was fixed … dallas no longer had our snap count. This had caused havoc in recent years, but I don’t recall a single time where dallas anticipated the snap in this game.

I also give the coaches some credit for the TD at the end of the half. Yes, it was a bonehead call by dallas, but it was no accident that the ball was stripped. That came from practicing – and being ready to pounce when an opportunity presented itself.

We didn’t do much bonehead stuff. A botched FG attempt is the only thing that stands out. We had few penalties (5 – a couple of which were bogus, vs 12 for the ‘pukes) and ZERO turnovers. It wasn’t luck. There weren’t balls popping loose or passes that ‘puke defenders got their hands on and couldn’t hold. We even tackled well against a team with a talent for making people miss. We didn’t beat ourselves, though I had hoped to see more of a killer instinct. In many respects, this game resembled the gritty best of the Gibbs 2.0 era – make few mistakes, play tough aggressive defense and you’ll be in a position to win it at the end.

On the final play, I’m glad we didn’t have the refs Detroit had. I wonder if it had been Zorn on the sideline, if the ref would have thrown the flag.

Kudos to the coaching staff. I’ll borrow from Tom Boswell, stupid doesn’t live here anymore.

You're wrong.

Like I said in the previous post, if Clinton Portis were at Redskin Park or in the locker room, that's one thing, but he was OFF THE JOB!!!

He can say whatever he damn well pleases, he's at "home".
Fans like you wish for some sort of dictatorship/new slavery for the players and it's rather disgusting.

The 1st Amendment applies to them also-I just don't get how some fans think that it's SUSPENDED for Pro Athletes-they should shut-up on cue and /p/h/u/c/k/ their private,personal and constitutionally guaranteed rights.

That's why I always say the NFLPA is one of the worst unions ever. It has ceded freedom of speech and privacy to a dictatorial employer and for what? Football?!?!

Only Pro Athletes are treated like man-children and told when to talk, walk, shut-up,sit-down, stand-up and for what?

A dumb-/a/s/s/ game that doesn't need all the overtones of militarism and control.

ZEKE’S UNIQUE PERSPECTIVES
The ‘Told You alex barron Sucked’ Edition

Part 2

Our DBs played at a high level until the final 4 plays of the game play (2 missed INTs, a long pass on 4th down, followed by the TD negated by the hold). Our LBs struggled often and that even includes Fletcher. Orakpo was a beast going after the QB and the blitz packages definitely rattled both romo and garrett (the OC calling the plays). I wonder if the problems our defense caused dallas were result of the creative schemes used by Haslett or if it was our talent level along the line simply overwhelming theirs. We’ll find out when we play teams with better OLs.

Albert was a non-factor. He proved he really isn’t in football shape. Mentally or physically.

The WRs other than Moss were mostly absent, the run game rarely worked until the last drive. I was surprised to see Dockery and Jamaal Brown get taken out for some series off (my count, Dock missed 2, Brown 1). I’ll be interested in how this evolves going forward.

Special kudos to Trent Williams, who held up as well as anyone could have rationally expected against ware and the formidable dallas front. Also to Portis for his blocking and Graham Gano.

Next week, we get the other team from Texas. I think I’ll get a better feel for where we stand. Because I’m really not sure. The opener was an emotional, hard fought game. But dallas is a tricky measuring stick to gauge against. I’m not sure what to expect vs Schaub and company. They blasted Indy, which is no Little Feat. Hopefully, we’ll be feasting on Dixie Chicken again this week, with some Tennessee Lamb down the road. I don’t know much about the Texans, but I’m Willin to learn.

At the end of game 2, we’ll know if we are contenders or pretenders. I’ll look to see if we are forcing mistakes and moving the ball. I see 4 tough, but winnable games out of the division -- winning 3 of 4 will help our playoff prospects a lot. The games are against the Texans, Titans, Jags and Bears. The Texans are probably the best of that group. A win is huge, but playing competitive ball will be a good sign.

And that’s it for this week with ZEKE’S UNIQUE PERSPECTIVES, the
“Holding #71, Game over” edition, brought to you, as always, by the finest of the fine people at Yahoo!

I understand your view, but in my opinion it's perfectly appropriate for business such as the Redskins to expect one of its very high profile, well known employees to adhere to certain standards of conduct on and off the job when such conduct becomes a matter of public discorse.

What you're defending is the right of the NFL to act as though this is the Soviet Union. These are human beings who get paid to play a game in which they run around with garish uniforms on.Nothing else

So this idea that somehow the NFL is hurt or damaged by their expressions of free speech is taking the NFL's point of view, that they need to be "controlled".

First of all, the NFL does not have an anti-trust exemption. That's baseball and only baseball. And if you honestly believe that you have the right to say and do anything you want when you are off duty, well, you aren't going to be employed for very long. Any employer has the right to protect themselves against the off duty behavior of employees that might affect the business negatively. And btw, if you are employed, you are an employee 24/7/365, not just when you are on company property. Sad but true.

You're right about Goodell, but he is a lawyer and he knows the importance of keeping players in line to keep the product at maximum profit.

Locker-room incident causes growing P.R. problem for NFL

Posted by Mike Florio on September 14, 2010 6:44 PM ET

The Jets and the NFL mobilized quickly at the first whiff of trouble regarding the visit of TV Azteca reporter Ines Sainz to the Jets' practice and locker room. The lawyers in the crowd realize that, in situations like this, prudence requires a thorough investigation and a demonstrated commitment to avoid similar situations in the future.

The P.R. specialists in the crowd understand that there's far more to the story, especially with the NFL operating in a nation that enjoys a high percentage of males who love football, and a small-but-hopefully-growing percentage of women.

Apart from any legal liability for sexual harassment or hostile work environment or gender discrimination, the league could alienate plenty of women (and also plenty of men) if the league tolerates any words or behavior that arguably represent misogynistic attitudes on the part of the men who play the game. That's why, in our view, Redskins running back Clinton Portis apologized so quickly on Monday after another patented Portis rambling rant, in which he said that among other things that female reporters in an NFL locker room "get to go look at 53 men's packages."

And it's why, in our view, the tone of Cardinals defensive tackle Darnell Dockett's Twitter page changed so quickly today, from "I don't know what was said to her or whatever but u just have to know u going into a TEAM LOCKEROOM, and if its that serious WOMEN STAY OUT!" to "I think all men should respect women at all times no matter what And women should be able to work where ever they want! That's my opinon!"

Look for the league to continue to look for any evidence of players saying things that could constitutes hostility or animosity or any other improper attitude toward females in the locker room, and to move swiftly to persuade the player to alter his statements. For now, we've yet to hear anything from the NFLPA on this matter, but the union has the same incentive as the league to ensure that nothing players say or do will cause portions of the audience to decide to no longer pay attention to the game.

UPDATE: The NFLPA has issued a general statement regarding the situation.
"Comments and behavior that are offensive to any group or individual are not tolerated and are not reflective of our membership," says the statement forwarded to us by union spokesman George Atallah

Kevin Durant>Labia James

Redskins Do What Wizards Can't; Send LeBron James Home from DC a Loser

by Kevin Ewoldt on Sep 14, 2010 12:00 PM EDT in Redskins Analysis

Ken and I were at Fedex Field most of the day so I'm not sure how much the national broadcast covered of LeCrabDribble being at the Redskins/Cowboys game. It's already laughable that he's a native from Ohio and is a huge Yankees fan, but it definitely slid under the radar for me that he was a huge Cowboys fan. So, up-to-date, here's Lebron's team loyalty: New York Yankees, Dallas Cowboys, Ohio State and the Miami Heat. Vomit. I guess the only thing left for him to do is wear a Sidney Crosby jersey to the Winter Classic.

What annoyed me was the pre-game taunt:

In DC for My Cowboys game tonight. Gonna be a lot of sad faces tonight in this area. Lol!!"

First, no heterosexual male should ever use "Lol." Ever. And if we're going to talk about crying faces....here's a picture to sum that up...which applies for every final playoff series he's been in so far.

So, what did native Kevin Durant have to say back??

@KingJames HAAAIIIILLLLLLLLL to the REDSKIIIIIIINNSSSS

Gotta love it. Hopefully John Wall can repeat that LeBron loss.

"Posted by Mike Florio on September 14, 2010 6:06 PM ET
The Houston Texans, facing a season-long injury to defensive end Connor Barwin, have added not one but two potential replacements.

Ryan Denney and Adewale Ogunleye have joined the team, according to John McClain of the Houston Chronicle. They worked out for the Texans on Tuesday, along with free-agent defensive end Bobby McCray, who was not signed.

Barwin was not a starter, but he played left defensive end in passing situations on Sunday against the Colts.

Denney spent eight seasons with the Bills; Ogunleye played most recently with the Bears."

I actually wouldn't have gone to him a second time, but Little Shanny didn't call it for him the second time. He called in a play to Donovan that coincidentally had AA running the same route and Donovan chose to throw it to him again. Big Shanny said that in an interview yesterday.

IMHO-the skins for the first time in years have a coaching staff that can prepare for this game and put player skills into position to make plays. The dropped passes from the last game should be corrected.

That said, the o-line should be better to open holes and create a decent running game. The Cowboys have a great defense and the coaching showed that we can win games that we would have lost from years past. HTTR

scampbell1975

So if she is to be believed then your claim that "A woman who hears something she doesn't like while sitting thoughtfully in a room of naked men should get up and go think about something else somewhere else" has no basis.

In my past life as an Advanced Placement Language and Composition teacher, I taught my students that the value of rhetoric lies in the fact that it possesses universal meanings and applications.

So even if the woman in question was not 'sitting thoughtfully in a room of naked men,' the point is that some women, like men, are prone to disengage themselves from the p.c. blather that regulates their lives and, while even at work, think all kinds of thoughts...

...inappropriate and otherwise.

Which essentially begs the question of why the sports' public allows women--and men--to ask blunt questions of naked professions at the end of their work, and then, in turn, expect them to maintain decorum and propriety.

The league would do well to establish the uniform rule that for the 35 minutes after a contest, no reporter--man or female--can enter a locker room.

After that, the it's the athlete's fault if someone comes in to interview while he he still in the buff.

But it is then the reporter's fault if their business seems to be over, and they are insulted because they chose to, well, sit thoughtfully in a room of naked well-conditioned, muscled athletes.

Just because the person in question is a woman, it doesn't mean she can't have all kinds of thoughts....

...nappropriate and otherwise.

I think the reason they don't have that rule is that reporters face deadlines -- they have to file their stories and need the access to players ASAP. I thought that the rule was that the locker room is closed for five or ten minutes so that coaches and players could talk and compose themselves and then, after that, the rooms are open.

Strange.

Whenever I see Kimberly Jones and others interview Yankees' baseball players, they--the players-- are completely dressed.

And you can't tell me New York sports' reporters don't have deadlines.

I think football reporters place too much value on post game locker room interviews.

And if it is some important, perhaps selected players should be shuttled into a media room --time limited--prior to undressing to be interviewed.

But no one can say their impresses of a game were somehow enhanced by a locker room interview of a linebacker dripping with shower water.

CP spelled backwards is PC but what he said wasn't Politically Correct. Every time he opens his yap he represents the Washington Redskins and the NFL.

"The P.R. specialists in the crowd understand that there's far more to the story, especially with the NFL operating in a nation that enjoys a high percentage of males who love football, and a small-but-hopefully-growing percentage of women.

Apart from any legal liability for sexual harassment or hostile work environment or gender discrimination, the league could alienate plenty of women (and also plenty of men) if the league tolerates any words or behavior that arguably represent misogynistic attitudes on the part of the men who play the game. That's why, in our view, Redskins running back Clinton Portis apologized so quickly on Monday after another patented Portis rambling rant, in which he said that among other things that female reporters in an NFL locker room "get to go look at 53 men's packages."

Look for the league to continue to look for any evidence of players saying things that could constitutes hostility or animosity or any other improper attitude toward females in the locker room, and to move swiftly to persuade the player to alter his statements. For now, we've yet to hear anything from the NFLPA on this matter, but the union has the same incentive as the league to ensure that nothing players say or do will cause portions of the audience to decide to no longer pay attention to the game."

CP should focus more on getting back his burst, his balance, & vision and less on his blocking (already the best) and his comedy act.

The Texans looked great against Indy, but they didn't look much like the Texans.

Here's why I say that: Houston was the NFL's passing leader last season, and generated only 98 yards through the air against the Colts. They finished 30th in rushing in '09, averaging 92 yards a game, yet on Sunday they ran up 257 on the ground, with 15 first downs.

So now they come to Washington. Do they stick with this radically changed strategy, or do they revert? I say we can't learn much from that first game.


The NFL's passing leaders produced a paltry 7 first downs by passing, versus 15 via the run? That had to reflect the game plan rather than simple talent.

Not sure how we'll do vs the Texans. What we need to do is compete. dallas had a ton of talent, but lacked discipline. Plus, they had a massive talent hole along the OL. We made the most of their weaknesses. It wasn't really hard to figure out alex barron sucked and that Orakpo would look like Reggie White vs him.

I doubt the the Texans have a hole to exploit the size of barron. They can pass, they can run and they've got some good defenders. But I also doubt their front 7 is anything close to what dallas had.

I think we'll be a tough defense for Schaub. Shanny Jr knows their offense and we've got plenty of talent on the 'd' side. My guess is Shanny will put a lot more emphasis on the run this week. We don't want to get into a shoot out style game.

This feels like a tough matchup to me. Keep it close, win it at the end with a vet QB running the show. Sort of a Joe Gibbs 2.0 formula.

It's not an easy one to predict. We've got to do better on the offensive side of the ball this week. One more receiver needs to step up this week. I hope they sit Sellers. I think Mike was done last year, always liked him until last season. The D needs to play the way they did against the boys (better against the run, run D is scary so far). I wouldn't bet the house either way this week, but the Skins can pull this off.

GO SKINS, HHTR

I'm with the why do we need reporters in the locker room with naked athletes (M or F) crowd. Let 'em wait outside. The players have to leave sometime.

I'm going with a let down for the Texans after taking down the Colts. We will give up some yards, but will be able to hold them to fgs on a few drives. Skins 27, Texans 23.

She indicated that she's used to it .... ummmmm because she's very aware of how she dresses. She can handle it. It was probably a fugly American female reporter who got offended. Alex Flanagan, and Lindsay Soto are hot (too) and they would never dress like they're going out to a club. There's a time and a place for everything. Watch what Flanagan wears on NFL All Access. Inez would dress completely different.

If you watch the hispanic channels pretty much all the women (weather, sports anchors) are hot. There's a big cultural difference between "us" ???? and "them". In LA where there's a big hispanic population, the local news, English-speaking channels have to compete, so they have hot weather/sports women too, who also dress like they're going out to a club.

Miami? Same thing.

Ohio? Nope.

CP is 100% right in his comments...NOBODY should be in the locker room, let alone a smokin' hot Mexican chick with an ass that'll make you howl like a horny wolf. If you havent's seen this chick, bless yourself and Google her...she's easily an 11 on a scale of 1-10. That said, CP just shouldn't have made those comments publicly. He knows this PC age prohibits anyone from saying anything that can be even remotely offensive so he should have a filter for that. Maybe DMac can explain to him the proper way to address the media.

Speaking of DM5...there was this show on ESPN called Homecoming where McNabb went back to his native Chicago for a "this is your life" sort of special. Great look at McNabb and really highlights the kind of personality he is. Not sure if they'll replay it but I'm a huge fan of his having seen more of him as a person.

100% agree on the Portis comments. He just shouldn't have said it. Why the NFL thinks it okay to have female reporters in the locker rooms is beyond me. There are just some jobs that are going to have their limits for the opposite sex. Female sports reporters shouldn't be in the men's locker rooms and male sports reporters shouldn't be in the women's locker rooms. I'm not saying the women deserve to be harassed, I am just saying they shouldn't be placed in that position.

I'm sure someone's touched on this already, but how much do we love the gold pants with the burgundy jerseys? Friggin' sweet. I'll never understand why we ever got away from that combo but I hope it's here to stay. Even though that game was ugly, we sure looked good playing it...

Posted by: RedSkinHead | September 15, 2010 6:06 AM |

Are you serious about this? If the NFL allows male reporters in the locker rooms, they cannot bar female reporters. Discriminating against females went out shortly after "separate but equal."

There are jobs that "have their limits." Women cannot compete against men in most professional sports -- even golf -- but it is illegal to prohibit them from trying it. Even the NFLPA recognizes that women should have the same opportunities as men to report on NFL sports.

This has been settled for a long time. Hard to believe that RI posters are so worked up about a "smokin' hot Mexican chick" who is actually Spanish. I know, "those kind all look alike to me."

And no one up here has ever even seen or heard her reporting. They google pictures and thing they're experts. Go back and read the link that dcsween provided last night to a Jasno post on Redskins Insider that praises the woman, and her reporting.

What would happen if a Male reporter interviewd naked female players in their locker room after a game or if some suave good looking Male reporter that a large % of women think is attractive and sexy did an interview at a female practice? Don't you think that the women would make cat calls, flirt and throw something other than looks at the guy?? Why is there a double standard??? CP was right to a degree, maybe he expressed it poorly but he was right and he is entitled to his opinion! From now on, reporters should not ask questions if they dont want the truth from players or they will start getting a lot of "no comments" and it will make their jobs useless.

"Why is there a double standard???"posted by usc932000

At this point, given the status of case law about reporters in locker rooms, and about sexual harassment in general, we can safely say, 'there just is'. So get over it.

Certainly the attorneys for the NFL and the Jets have advised their respective clients there's no legal protection against sexual harassment complaints in such areas. So the league and the clubs are going to condemn any situation that suggests it happened. So when somebody around here asks why the NFL is being PC, there's an obvious answer -- to protect themselves in court.

And if several players disagree so strongly they can't comply, I'm sure the teams are more than willing to give them an opportunity to find employment elsewhere, like the Unique Football League.

I am a woman and I would not want to go in a men's locker room for an interview unless they were fully dressed. I understand this is a disadvantage for women reporters but would I want a male reporter in my locker room if I were a female athelete - I think not!!! I don't think Portis said anything that was that bad to be called down by the NFL. It has to be hard trying to interact with your team afer a game with male or female reporters in the locker room. Maybe a rule should be made that no reporters go in the locker room until everyone is dressed. No advantage to male or female and it gives the team time interact and unwind.

I don't have a problem with what Portis said. At least the parts that I've read. He said, people of the opposite sex will probably see someone they like if you waltz 53 naked people in front of them? What's wrong with that?

Huh? Why is everybody all over Clinton? Isn't he entitled to his own opinion? Doesn't he qualify for the right to free speech? They asked him and he answered honestly, was he suppose to lie?

I think the NFL requires players to be available to the press, but, if the NFL won't allow them to talk, then, they should hand the players que cards to read to the press. That way there's no risk of an honest, freedom of speech quote getting out into the media. Clinton should have answered, "I'm sorry, I'd like to talk about that but the NFL hasn't handed me anything to read to you to tell you what my opinion is, and I definitely don't want to tell you what I personally think . . . oh, you asked me what I personally think???"

Give me a break.

My opinion is the locker room should be a safe haven for the team to unwind and get cleaned up after the game. They can setup a media lounge once they're done showering and changing. How about respecting the players, you send a women into the locker room when a lot of these guys are happily married and devout husbands with families and children. I could hear it now "Daddy, how do you get showered if they let strange ladies in there?". Or strange guys for that matter.

The Texans looked great against Indy, but they didn't look much like the Texans.

Here's why I say that: Houston was the NFL's passing leader last season, and generated only 98 yards through the air against the Colts. They finished 30th in rushing in '09, averaging 92 yards a game, yet on Sunday they ran up 257 on the ground, with 15 first downs.

So now they come to Washington. Do they stick with this radically changed strategy, or do they revert? I say we can't learn much from that first game.


The NFL's passing leaders produced a paltry 7 first downs by passing, versus 15 via the run? That had to reflect the game plan rather than simple talent.

Posted by: Samson151 | September 14, 2010 11:25 PM | Report abuse


I'm scared of the Texans.

When Indy is controlling the game, they are the ones who typically jump out to early leads, force the other team to throw the ball, and play to their defensive strength which is pass-rushing.

The Texans totally flipped the equation.

They got up early on Colts and then went to the run. The issue is not that the passing game wasn't working, the issue is that they got the lead and then did what smart, competent, well-balanced teams do - exploit the lead and exploit the opposing team's weakness.

Schaub didn't have a "down" game because Indy defended well. Schaub simply didn't throw alot b/c he didn't have to. True that Indy is not known for stout run D, but racking up 231 rushing yards against any professional team means you can run the ball.

The Cowpies ran on us. They averaged 4.7 ypc. Thanks to the ineptitude of Wade Phillips, though, the 'Girls decided to let Romo throw 47 times in what was a low-scoring game, particularly down the stretch.

Since Kubiak doesn't have his head up Jerry Jones' backside like Wade, I imagine the Skins will get a heavy dose of "whatever is working" be it pass or run.

This isn't rocket science people. The clothing selections this young lady "chooses" to wear into locker rooms are beyond provocative! WHAT do these women expect who venture in because they are "reporters?" WHAT information could they possibly receive IN the locker room that could not be obtained in a totally DIFFERENT venue (like OUTSIDE on the field or court or WHERE-EVER else)?
Just because there are "guidelines for moral conduct etiquette" doesn't mean that any man or woman for that matter are going to turn off WHAT they see like some kind of a light switch.
I AGREE with several comments made on the post, women do NOT, I repeat, do NOT belong in men's locker rooms for ANY reason and especially dressed like this young woman has at times. WHAT does she expect? Sure she should be respected for the job she is doing, but THAT JOB should be done OUTSIDE the locker room!!! (DON'T CHOOSE to stroll into the lions den with meat tied around your neck and then PROTEST because the lions tried to maul you, THINK TANK!!)

You misunderstand: it was clearly Houston's plan to run the ball, and it worked better than they had a right to expect. It probably won't work that well if they try it against Washington, because the Skins will be prepared for it. However the Skins run defense was a main question through preseason, so the Texans will no doubt test it.

One stat that hasn't been mentioned much -- Manning threw for 20 1st downs and 419 yards against Houston. That's also something Washington will notice when they look at film.

Okay I don't know what goes on in there but you make it sound like a football locker room is the same as a San Francisco BATH HOUSE!!! What ever happened to walls to separate the showers and TOWELS??? As far as Portis what was he talking about?? Good thing he can run because he can't speak. As far as her I'm sorry but she was hired because she is hot and the men who hired her wanted that because it's what attacts male viewers. So if she takes 4 hours every morning on hair and makeup to look sexy she can't be that shocked when players have a reacton to it.. Players have to be professional but hard to expect them to treat someone who looks like her get the same reaction as Peter King in the locker room.
