Dawan Landry Doing Well

Ravens safety Dawan Landry, older brother of Skins safety LaRon Landry, is recovering after suffering a spinal concussion in Baltimore's win Sunday. News of the injury spread quickly to the Redskins, with Dawan Landry rushed off the field in a stretcher, and LaRon was shaken by the incident, obviously. "It hurt for me to see him like that," LaRon Landry said Monday. "I was very scared. I didn't know what happened."

Kevin Byrne, the Ravens' senior vice president/public and community relations, said Landry is home today resting after being released from the hospital. Bryne said he had not seen Landry at the facility and knew of no plans for him to visit the team today. Byrne also said there had been no discussion to this point as to whether Landry would accompany the team to Pittsburgh to watch Monday night's game.

Landry was released from the hospital Monday and must wear a cervical collar for at least a week. He will be evaluated next week.

This situation looked pretty grave in real time, but Bryne said the Ravens are hopeful that Landry "can continue playing at some time this season." Baltimore hosts the Redskins on Dec. 7.

Quick question for anyone - why is there nothing but Ravens advertisments on this page? Check the very top of the page and along the right side. Maybe it's just because of my host site (near B-more) but I thought it is kind of strange to see this on a Redskin blog...

Posted by: Anonymous | September 23, 2008 3:23 PM | Report abuse

Here you go, Greg -

Seven Keys

1. Redskins come to play; Dallas is flat. It is hard to stay fired up for three straight games against tough opponents.

2. Frustrate Romo. Defensive coordinator Greg Blache has simplified predecessor Gregg Williams complex schemes, but it might be time to get creative. He'll need to blitz from odd angles and unexpectedly. The skins can use press coverage outside with LaRon Landry in centerfield protecting deep, but if Romo gets time, its game over and the rout will be on.

3. Stop Barber. He needs to be stopped in the backfield. Judicious blitzing fills run gaps, too.

4. Control the ball of offense. The West Coast offense is a ball control offense and long drives that lead to touchdowns (not field goals) can offset Dallas's strengths. Portis must gain over 100 yards to set up the passing game. With extra time to get open, Santana Moss can continue to torture Dallas.

5. Dominate both lines. Yes, it's the oldest cliché in football, and like most old clichés, it's true. Dallas may have the best O-line in the NFL, and if they control the line of scrimmage, the game is over early. Likewise, if Campbell is harassed in the pocket and Portis can't run.

6. A surprise star. The 'skins need a player to step up unexpectedly. Horton 's three turnovers helped beat New Orleans. Carlos "Hands of Stone" Rogers spectacular sealed Sunday's game. Perhaps the unluckiest Redskins Sunday was rookie Devin Thomas, who lost a big gain due to offensive interference, and a touchdown due to a personal foul penalty. The kid is due for a big game. Will this be the week?

7. Win the Special teams. The 'skins can't keep up with the Jones if they allow Felix or Adam to run wild of special teams. Durant Brooks, the punter who has become Jim Zorn's personal punching bag, needs a big game. .

If the Redskins prevail in all seven areas, they can win Sunday. If they falter in even one or two, they will lose. More than that, and it will be a blowout.

Exclusive: The methane time bomb

Arctic scientists discover new global warming threat as melting permafrost releases millions of tons of a gas 20 times more damaging than carbon dioxide
By Steve Connor, Science Editor

Tuesday, 23 September 2008

The first evidence that millions of tons of a greenhouse gas 20 times more potent than carbon dioxide is being released into the atmosphere from beneath the Arctic seabed has been discovered by scientists.

The Independent has been passed details of preliminary findings suggesting that massive deposits of sub-sea methane are bubbling to the surface as the Arctic region becomes warmer and its ice retreats.
Underground stores of methane are important because scientists believe their sudden release has in the past been responsible for rapid increases in global temperatures, dramatic changes to the climate, and even the mass extinction of species. Scientists aboard a research ship that has sailed the entire length of Russia's northern coast have discovered intense concentrations of methane – sometimes at up to 100 times background levels – over several areas covering thousands of square miles of the Siberian continental shelf.
In the past few days, the researchers have seen areas of sea foaming with gas bubbling up through "methane chimneys" rising from the sea floor. They believe that the sub-sea layer of permafrost, which has acted like a "lid" to prevent the gas from escaping, has melted away to allow methane to rise from underground deposits formed before the last ice age.
They have warned that this is likely to be linked with the rapid warming that the region has experienced in recent years.
Methane is about 20 times more powerful as a greenhouse gas than carbon dioxide and many scientists fear that its release could accelerate global warming in a giant positive feedback where more atmospheric methane causes higher temperatures, leading to further permafrost melting and the release of yet more methane.
The amount of methane stored beneath the Arctic is calculated to be greater than the total amount of carbon locked up in global coal reserves so there is intense interest in the stability of these deposits as the region warms at a faster rate than other places on earth.
Orjan Gustafsson of Stockholm University in Sweden, one of the leaders of the expedition, described the scale of the methane emissions in an email exchange sent from the Russian research ship Jacob Smirnitskyi.
"We had a hectic finishing of the sampling programme yesterday and this past night," said Dr Gustafsson. "An extensive area of intense methane release was found. At earlier sites we had found elevated levels of dissolved methane. Yesterday, for the first time, we documented a field where the release was so intense that the methane did not have time to dissolve into the seawater but was rising as methane bubbles to the sea surface. These 'methane chimneys' were documented on echo sounder and with seismic [instruments]."
At some locations, methane concentrations reached 100 times background levels. These anomalies have been seen in the East Siberian Sea and the Laptev Sea, covering several tens of thousands of square kilometres, amounting to millions of tons of methane, said Dr Gustafsson. "This may be of the same magnitude as presently estimated from the global ocean," he said. "Nobody knows how many more such areas exist on the extensive East Siberian continental shelves.
"The conventional thought has been that the permafrost 'lid' on the sub-sea sediments on the Siberian shelf should cap and hold the massive reservoirs of shallow methane deposits in place. The growing evidence for release of methane in this inaccessible region may suggest that the permafrost lid is starting to get perforated and thus leak methane... The permafrost now has small holes. We have found elevated levels of methane above the water surface and even more in the water just below. It is obvious that the source is the seabed."
The preliminary findings of the International Siberian Shelf Study 2008, being prepared for publication by the American Geophysical Union, are being overseen by Igor Semiletov of the Far-Eastern branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences. Since 1994, he has led about 10 expeditions in the Laptev Sea but during the 1990s he did not detect any elevated levels of methane. However, since 2003 he reported a rising number of methane "hotspots", which have now been confirmed using more sensitive instruments on board the Jacob Smirnitskyi.
Dr Semiletov has suggested several possible reasons why methane is now being released from the Arctic, including the rising volume of relatively warmer water being discharged from Siberia's rivers due to the melting of the permafrost on the land.
The Arctic region as a whole has seen a 4C rise in average temperatures over recent decades and a dramatic decline in the area of the Arctic Ocean covered by summer sea ice. Many scientists fear that the loss of sea ice could accelerate the warming trend because open ocean soaks up more heat from the sun than the reflective surface of an ice-covered sea.

Can't live in the past, cL. This is this year, not last year. Based on three games ... right now ... Barber is running better than Portis. I just puked a little in my mouth when I typed that, but Barber is consistently getting to the second level on the inside or off tackle. [Portis longest carries are on the outside.] Actually, maybe now that I think about it ... maybe its a difference in run blocking ...

Agreed Sween. It is hard to admit, but Dallas simply has a bigger, and probably better o-line.

We need to play mistake free and turn some of the Romo blunders into points (not field goals).

Posted by: k Squared | September 23, 2008 4:32 PM | Report abuse

So to summarize Corcoran.

We need to stop their QB and stop their RB. Our O-line and D-line need outplays theirs. We need to control the ball and the special teams need to play well. We need to bring intensity and hope they don't. And we need to have someone step up and make big plays.

He is saying if we stop their guys and we control the ball and score TDs, we'll win as long as we don't mess up on special teams.

OK, I'm thinking that is pretty vanilla stuff. Corcoran, you can do better, especially since you ate my lunch with your calls about the NYG game (though we both called it for the Skins).

Here's my 7 (errr 8).

1. DeMarcus Ware is one of the few guys that Samuels struggles with. Samuels has been good to dominant this season. Samuels needs to own that matchup.

2. Whatever 'tip' that the Cowboys get from Campbell on the snap count needs to be fixed.

3. Lots of guys in the box because Barber+Jones is the rare RB combo that can carry a team. Don't let them get started.

4. Whatever it takes to get pressure. If 4 guys get it, great. But that hasn't worked so far. Bring 5 or 6. Get hands up, tipped balls can turn into big plays. You risk the WRs beating you one on one, but that is the better risk than giving Romo time

5. Smack TO in the mouth early.

6. Continue the no turnover football. No turnovers keeps the game close.

7. Bring back their nightmares. The mind game. Get it to Moss early and often, he is the guy they fear. I'm sure they remember last year's final game. Make them feel like they did in that one early one. Especially on defense when they made Romo and his guys look inept. A couple of good defensive series early will play with their minds and increase the mistakes Romo will make.

8. A bit obvious, but do well in the red zone -- on both sides of the ball.

For something written by an alleged "Redskins columnist," Corcoran's remarks pay surprisingly little attention to the lessons of the recent games between the two teams. We've won two of the last four contests, despite not having accomplished all, or sometimes even most, of the seven goals that he sets forth.

"If Romo gets time, it will be game over and the rout will be on?" I don't recall the 'Skins getting an inordinate amount of pressure in their two wins. What I remember is the team limiting the number of big plays and generally making the 'Boys drive the length of the field to score. If they do that on Sunday, Romo will get careless with the ball and give the Redskins an opportunity to make a play.

"Dominate both lines?" Sorry, that's just not going to happen. They're just too good. What they do need to do on offense is to create just enough running room for Portis to maintain the credible threat of a running attack, and protect Campbell so that he can exploit a vulnerable Dallas secondary. On defense, they have to control Barber and keep Jones from breaking off a big one. In this regard, losing Jason Taylor actually helps, as someone like Demetric Evans can play the run better. I don't see them getting a lot of pass rush with just the four d-linemen, and they shouldn't blitz very much because that opens them up to big plays downfield, which they must avoid.

Romo is a very talented quarterback with very good to great offensive weapons, but he will get careless with the ball, and the Redskins have to take advantage of that. In order to do that, they have to eliminate the big play on defense and special teams, and make the Cowpies drive the length of the field to score. On offense, they must play their usual error-free football, have just enough of a running game to make the front seven honor play action, and protect Campbell, who must play very well. If they do these things, they will keep it close and have a very good chance of coming away with a win.

Dallas Dominance in the NFC?
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Staff Report
TheRanchReport.com Sep 22, 2008

Following the Cowboys' resounding 27-16 victory against the Packers at Lambeau Field in a game that was supposed to be a test of conference supremacy, owner Jerry Jones was asked if the Cowboys were ready to be the league's next dominant team.

With the Patriots, Steelers, Colts and Chargers all looking rather beatable in 2008, there is a definite vacuum at the top of the NFL. And the defending Super Bowl champion Giants remain a team that keeps finding a way to win, but they are anything but dominant or glamorous.

But the Cowboys return 13 Pro Bowlers from a team that went 13-3 in 2007 and they look like a suitable candidate. And following their dismantling of Packers, there are few people who would question them outside of New York.

Jones, however, refused to take the bait and eat the cheese.

Jones said all he cares about is his team continuing to improve and get better each week.

Quarterback Tony Romo sung a similar tune.

"We have a good football team, I know that," Romo said. "But it doesn't matter if you are the favorite now or the last favorite. You have to keep playing football games. You aren't trying to be the favorite in Week 3. You are trying to be the favorite at the end of the year."

The Cowboys' Super Bowl-or-bust campaign remains on a roll and they face the Redskins Sunday in the latest big game of the week.

After beating the Eagles on Monday night, the Cowboys survived a short week and a trip to Green Bay to throttle a Packers team that was flying high through two weeks of the season under new quarterback Aaron Rodgers.

But Rodgers, who shocked the Cowboys by nearly leading a comeback when he came on for an injured Brett Favre last season, got nothing going against a stingy defense Sunday night.

He was sacked five times. Although he had 290 yards passing, many came with the game decided as the Cowboys took a 27-9 lead in the fourth quarter.

"Our defense played pretty well the whole game," coach Wade Phillips said.

Offensively, the Cowboys unveiled a new weapon opponents will have to be wary about going forward.

Receiver Miles Austin had catches of 63 yards and 52 yards. The latter was a touchdown to provide a big-play spark on offense and offset a horrible night from receiver Terrell Owens. Owens caught two passes for 17 yards and had a drop.

There is no way the Cowboys would have won last year with Owens having such a poor outing. In fact, Jones worked throughout the offseason looking for a big-play weapon to play opposite Owens.

Jones tried to acquire Anquan Bolden, Chad Johnson and Roy Williams, but was unsuccessful.

Instead, the old-fashioned improvement from within came through with Austin -- who caught just five passes last season and routinely would not catch the ball if thrown to him.

"Just taking advantage of the double-teams on T.O. and (Jason) Witten," Austin said. "It's an advantage to me to have them on the team because they're going to take a lot of the pressure off me. I'm just going in there and trying to make plays when I can, and I'm fortunate enough that the coaches have trust in me, and the quarterback trusts me to give me the ball."

TRENDING: The maligned Cowboys defense has given up just two touchdowns the past six quarters.

LINEUP WATCH: Patrick Watkins stepped in for an injured Roy Williams at strong safety. He started on first and second downs with Courtney Brown replacing him in the nickel. The Cowboys want to keep Watkins fresh to continue his role on special teams. Williams will be out three-to-four weeks with a broken arm.

UNDER THE RADAR: Receiver Miles Austin caught just five passes last season for a total of five for his career coming into the season. He had a 63-yard catch and a 52-yard catch for a touchdown against the Packers. He is answering the team's call for a big-play receiver opposite Terrell Owens.

BY THE NUMBERS: 1 -- The Cowboys won for the first time in Lambeau Field in franchise history. They were 0-5 dating back to 1960.

How is that a penalty? The QB still has the ball. Just b/c Dockett gave up on the play and stood up, that shouldn't negate the fact that a lineman still has to protect his QB.

The last thing the skins can do is play it safe and "prevent" the big play. Romo will pick us apart, and Barber will grind out yards on the ground. Blache needs to put the onus on his secondary to come up big with man coverage and a cover-1, while blitzing Romo until he can't see anymore.

On the flipside, Zorn can't be worried about trying to make long, clock consuming drives. Use Santana Moss deep, early and often. Use Devin Thomas deep, early and often. Zorn's first priority needs to be making sure we get TDs, not making sure we "control the clock". The clock control will come once they know we're coming at them aggressively.

psps, the one thing I noticed as up-steppage by Zorn was his mixing up the play calls. He is becoming downright masterful at anticipating what a defense is going to be anticipating ... and them sometimes feeding it to them sometimes (so that they get confident in their guessing) and then exploiting it.

Two plays come to mind:

1. Yoder TD

and

2. Thomas TD (called back on Heyer penalty) ... the Cards were all over a GREAT fake draw on Portis up the middle. Campbell faked it awesomely, and Portis was even better. He was about to get hit by the LB when he pulled up short, stood up, and showed the LB his hands (like the empty pockets sign). At that moment, everyone on the Cards D just said "fuuuuuuuuuu ..." because the entire squad bit and Thomas was WIDE WIDE WIDE open on the sideline.

Fellas, I'm a Dallas fan from the early 70s. It doesn't surprise me that some or many of the 90s Cowboys were vulgar in the extreme. As long as the team wins, who cares...right? That's the sporting equivalent to "my country right or wrong".

The pollsters found that the US had changed by the 92 election, and that "character didn't matter." Both the Boys White House and the one in DC were made into dens of iniquity. As C.S. Lewis wrote: "We laugh at Honour and are shocked to find traitors in our midst."

Mom allegedly uses daughter's ID to be cheerleader

The Associated Press
Friday, September 12, 2008; 11:39 PM

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- A 33-year-old woman stole her daughter's identity to attend high school and join the cheerleading squad, according to a criminal complaint filed against the woman.

Wendy Brown, of Green Bay, faces a felony identity theft charge after enrolling in Ashwaubenon High School as her 15-year-old daughter, who lives in Nevada with Brown's mother.

According to the complaint, Brown wanted to get her high school degree and become a cheerleader because she didn't have a childhood and wanted to regain a part of her life that she'd missed.

Brown allegedly attended cheerleading practices before school started, received a cheerleader's locker and went to a pool party at the cheerleading coach's house.

The $134.50 check Brown gave to the cheerleading coach for her uniform bounced, the complaint said.

A high school employee, Kim Demeny, told authorities that the woman, posing as the teen, seemed very timid. Demeny said she told her she was not good at math and even cried when she talked about moving from Pahrump Valley High School in Nevada. Demeny said she looked older than a student but had the demeanor of a high school girl.

A school liaison officer started investigating after Brown only attended the first day of classes last week, the complaint said.

Assistant Principal Dirk Ribbins later learned Brown's daughter was enrolled at Pahrump Valley High School. Ribbins also spoke with Brown's mother, who told him she had custody of the girl. She said Brown has a history of identity theft crimes, the complaint said.

Brown made her first court appearance Friday by video conference. The judge set bond at $8,000.

If convicted, she could face up to six years in prison and a $10,000 fine.

There was no attorney listed in Brown's online court records. Her home number could not be found.

JLC stepped a little over the line, and yeah, he has a personal beef with VC. On the other hand, VC should have just let it go.

----

The Redskins matchup up in my opinion very well with the Cowboys. They've given them fits over the last few years, and this team has to be confident after playing two seemingly above average teams and getting wins after a rough start in New York.

I think if I'm the Redskins D, I have to concede that I can't stop everything against such an effective offense, so stop the most obvious problems: T.O., and Barber. My guess would be Springs on Barber with over the top help from Landry, with the other Safety coming up close to spy run. I'd gamble that Rogers and Smoot can hold their own with little or no help against Crayton and Austin, who are a considerable step down from T.O., obviously. I'd concede that Witten probably hurts me, but if I can keep Owens under control, hold Barber under 70 and not allow Jones an explosive plays, and keep the 2nd and 3rd receivers relatively quiet, I'll live with Witten going for 90-110 yards and 7-10 catches.

I think the current rotation, even minus Taylor, is capable of bothering Romo with good coverage and some moderate blitzing. If they do that, he's good for at least one 7 point mistake: that's his M.O.

"and that's all I have to say about that..."

Posted by: RI Regular & Jasno Flunkie | September 23, 2008 8:21 PM | Report abuse

psps, the one thing I noticed as up-steppage by Zorn was his mixing up the play calls. He is becoming downright masterful at anticipating what a defense is going to be anticipating ... and them sometimes feeding it to them sometimes (so that they get confident in their guessing) and then exploiting it.

Two plays come to mind:

1. Yoder TD

and

2. Thomas TD (called back on Heyer penalty) ... the Cards were all over a GREAT fake draw on Portis up the middle. Campbell faked it awesomely, and Portis was even better. He was about to get hit by the LB when he pulled up short, stood up, and showed the LB his hands (like the empty pockets sign). At that moment, everyone on the Cards D just said "fuuuuuuuuuu ..." because the entire squad bit and Thomas was WIDE WIDE WIDE open on the sideline.

Posted by: dcsween | September 23, 2008 5:28 PM

I gotta say, I was extremely critical of Zorn's playcalling in the Giants game. I thought that was major difference between the performances in week 1 and weeks 2 and 3.

Since the Giants game, he has been masterful. Simply brilliant. The other 2 plays that have stood out were his 4th & 2 slant to Moss against New Orleans, and his 2nd & 6 playaction to Cooley against Arizona. Both effectively ended the games. I hope I don't jinx it right now, but it looks like we have the makings of a chess master in playcalling.

“OK, I'm thinking that is pretty vanilla stuff. Corcoran, you can do better, especially since you ate my lunch with your calls about the NYG game (though we both called it for the Skins).”--Al, Zeke etc.

WOW, YOU SURE CALLED ME OUT!!! MY COMMENTS FOLLOW YOURS: —Your Pal, Corcoran

Here's my 7 (errr 8).

1. DeMarcus Ware is one of the few guys that Samuels struggles with. Samuels has been good to dominant this season. Samuels needs to own that matchup.

SUMMARY: Good pass blocking is important.

2. Whatever 'tip' that the Cowboys get from Campbell on the snap count needs to be fixed.

SUMMARY: Think that may have occurred to detail oriented Zorn already. In the ‘gun, it’s more often the center who tips the snap by raising his head in rhythm. Need to vary that.

3. Lots of guys in the box because Barber+Jones is the rare RB combo that can carry a team. Don't let them get started.

SUMMARY: Stop the run.

4. Whatever it takes to get pressure. If 4 guys get it, great. But that hasn't worked so far. Bring 5 or 6. Get hands up, tipped balls can turn into big plays. You risk the WRs beating you one on one, but that is the better risk than giving Romo time

SUMMARY: Rush the passer.

5. Smack TO in the mouth early.

QUESTION: Is during warmups too early?

6. Continue the no turnover football. No turnovers keeps the game close.

QUESTION: Isn’t that the second thing a football player learns, right after how to don a jock?

7. Bring back their nightmares. The mind game. Get it to Moss early and often, he is the guy they fear. I'm sure they remember last year's final game. Make them feel like they did in that one early one. Especially on defense when they made Romo and his guys look inept. A couple of good defensive series early will play with their minds and increase the mistakes Romo will make.

SUMMARY Outplay the Cowboys. It’ll scare ‘em.

8. A bit obvious, but do well in the red zone -- on both sides of the ball.

SUMMARY: Score and stop them from scoring.


Have to admit Al, Zeke...I just can keep up with the depth of your analysis.

Just funnin' with Sasquatch here. Once on the field, Football is, at heart, a very simple game. It's won in the lines and with good QB play. All the rest is analytical filler.

And while normally competitive, I happen to think this town IS big enough for both of us.

I gotta admit, I enjoy the back and forth. You were the one that called Burress in the opener and nailed that. You also called the that the Skins would need to grab those balls that they had a chance to grab -- and they missed several INTs. Kudos

As for Dallas:

5. Smack TO in the mouth early.

QUESTION: Is during warmups too early?
No, a la the Hanson Brothers

I don't think Dallas is mentally tough. If they get frustrated early, they may not recover.

OK, the turnover line was motherhood. 3 games w/o offensive turnovers is excellent, but it does have a 'hold my breath' quality to it.

As for the pass rush, I'm saying I'd rather rush more guys and risk man coverage than keep more guys in coverage. Not everyone sees it that way.

As for the line, Samuels is the one guy the Skins line counts on to do his job solo. And against most guys, he is money. Ware was the one guy who was a major problem for him. That specific matchup, more than any other on the line, will be key.


And yes, the town is big enough for both of us. But I live in San Jose -- since 1980.

To SOME of JLC's Supporters:

Please stop comparing the Redskins front office to Hitler and other Nazi officials and Jason to Bob Woodward. You are doing your cause (i.e., Jason) no favors by exposing yourselves as people lacking a command of history, proportionality and objectivity. Hyperbole isn't persuasive; it only makes you look dumb and dilutes the few good points that you make.

Also please stop bashing the Redskins by, for example, referring to them as the "DREADSKINS." Attacking our team isn't going to go over well on a blog about the team and which is largely read by the team's fans.

Secondly, have some freaking respect - the man's a United States Senator who was worked his way up to that - whether you disagree with his politics or not, there's no reason to call him Osama.

Thirdly - you connect the dots wrong, son - 1. If it was considered tampering, you don't think Al Davis would have found out about it another way?
2. Since it was not tampering, your dots fall apart.
3. I'll repeat, since you were not listening this afternoon - do you really think that anyone is going to move on a situation initiated by a Washington Post beat reporter?

You keep hammering the same points over and over again - yes, it was probably a stupid call for Jason to make, maybe he was just curious, who knows? But it's nowhere near as freaking big a deal as you're making it.

This one is for you JLC:

Green Bay - Derrick Frost should consider himself on notice.

Coach Mike McCarthy didn't hesitate Monday when he was asked about the punter's performance in Sunday night's 27-16 loss to the Dallas Cowboys.

"He needs to do a better job," McCarthy said. "There is no doubt about that. You look at the net and the numbers are OK, but as far as ball placement inside the 20, we need to do a better job of that."

After finishing the game against the Detroit Lions with a fumbled snap and a line-drive kick that was returned 20 yards, Frost punted five times against the Cowboys. He finished with a 49.0 average and a net of 42.4, but none of the punts landed inside the 20-yard line as the Packers struggled with field position throughout the game. Frost also averaged a mediocre 3.66 seconds of hang time.

"I'm just not real happy," said Frost, who has landed just one of his 14 punts inside the 20. "Two of the punts I really didn't hit very well. I kind of put us in a bind. Luckily we came out of it (OK), but I just don't feel like I'm hitting the ball nearly as well as I should be.

Special teams coach Mike Stock said the punt coverage was "outstanding" as they held Adam Jones to a 4.3-yard average on the three punts he fielded. Stock was tight-lipped about Frost.

Back during the first reign of Saint Joe in Redskin Land the WP was in the bag for the Deadskins. Only recently in the last couple of years under the current Sports section editor has the coverage moved to the middle ground. Same with the local sports coverage on TV. George Michael was always in the tank for the Redskins. And you would think with the way he r#ms Danny Boy Snyder we were talking about the other George Michael.

Danny Boy needs to realize he cant control the coverage of his mismanaged team.

Deadskins lose to the Cowgirls 42-3. Portis is on IR by the second quarter.

JLC keep the good work. And check your 6 at all times!

JLC had the right to ask the question.

Deadskins lose to the Cowgirls 42-3. Portis is on IR by the second quarter.

JLC keep the good work. And check your 6 at all times!

JLC had the right to ask the question.

Hoss,

Your an idiot who knows nothing about sports, Danny is not even the worst owner in Football, that honor is shared between the Bidwells the Fords and Mike Brown.

If Danny is such an bad owner why are the Redskins worth more money than any other team in the world except the Cowgirls?

Suisham is totally inconsistent; one kickoff will be a touchback, the next kickoff will land on the 25-yard line.

Yeah, let's bring in someone to compete with Suishy. Then after he gets cut, I'll have some new sour grapes to squeeze!

You know, I am often bothered by the way Snyder handles himself and the decisions made by the FO, but to say that Snyder is the worst owner in professional sports is absolutely ridiculous.

Peter Angelos, Donald Sterling, the Bidwells...just to name a few owners that are much worse than Snyder.

I once again encourage everyone to read the posts of people like Hoss. Is it a coincidence that just about the only people who defend JLC and do not post as an ANON refer to the Redskins as the "Deadskins?" I think not.

How many coaches have the Deadskins had Flounder under Danny Boy? And little boy I dont believe they give the Super Bowl trophy or any trophy to the owner who makes the most money. Are you sure of your facts Manchester U might be worth more.

How did Danny Boy's hiring Saint Joe work out? Gibb's bust should be pulled from HOF based on his results the second time around! Can we talk about his hiring of Neon?

Shame the WP's fair and unbiased coverage policy doesnt cover the presidential campaign.

Little Boy after you figure out pocket pool come talk to me about running a pro team. Bidwell's, Fords' et al never had the success of the Deadskins. When was the last time The Cards, Lions or Bungles went ot the Super Bowl? How many Super Bowl trophies do they have? And I wouldnt look to Danny Boy for investment advice. How is Six Flags doing?

My advice Flounder is the same as D day's to you boy!

Play with them if you can find them. Great career choice being a honey dipper ! How many years of college did you waste Flounder!

How old are you? You sound like someone in middle school, or a middle-aged man who never managed to get his GED.
