Horton Named NFC Defensive Player of Week

Rookie safety Chris Horton has been named the NFC defensive player of the week, the NFL announced this afternoon.

"I want to thank the National Football League for this tremendous honor," Horton said in a statement released by the league. "I feel truly blessed to have the game that I did last Sunday. My coaches prepared me and had enough confidence in me to give me this opportunity. I give the credit to my teammates who forced those turnovers and put me in a position to make plays."

Horton was sensational in his debut as a starter (he played briefly in a season-opening loss to the New York Giants), intercepting two passes, being credited with two solo tackles and recovering a fumble in Washington's 29-24 victory. His second interception of Saints quarterback Drew Brees in the fourth quarter all but sealed the Redskins' first victory of the season and the first win for rookie head coach Jim Zorn.

"He had a tremendous day out there," LaRon Landry said. "He did everything I thought he would do." Horton, selected in the seventh round from UCLA, is the first Redskins rookie with two interceptions and a fumble recovery in the same game since Brig Owens in 1966, according to the team's public relations office.

Shortly before kickoff against the Saints, safeties coach Steve Jackson pulled Horton aside and told him he would make his first NFL start because strong safety Reed Doughty had flu-like symptoms.

In the FedEx Field locker room, Jackson and Landry told Horton the game would be unlike what he had experienced in the preseason.

"Coach Jack and I told him, 'Look, the speed is totally different now. You've got to go out there and really ball,'" Landry recalled. "He said, 'Don't worry about this. I got this. I'm good. I'm good.' That's what he kept saying. You know what? He was right."

I agree, but he probably won't start just because Doughty is the incumbent. I would guess he would get a significant amount of PT though and should Reed falter, we should see Horton overtake Doughty for the starting SS spot.

Very proud for horton, a lot of us have seen the SS spot as our D's weakness. From the first play that onside kick he recovered you could tell this guy was johnny on the spot. Well desserved on his behalf, that 3rd and 2 run stop by him may have been bigger then any of his turnovers. back to the bench for dought I hope, this kid just keeps getting it done.

This was in Jasno's thread two threads ago -- nobody mentioned it much:

"The Cardinals have some talent up front and a group of linebackers that is plenty deep and largely overlooked, with converted ends manning the outside linebacker spots."

The Skins O-line seems like it got a little better, at least in pass protection, but good rotatable LBs is never a good sign ... means tricky blitzing opportunities, esp. if they have to counter-balance some weakness in their secondary.

Also, might be a good game to scout LBs ... Skins are not so deep at LB.

Not surprised by Horton's play in the PSeason & in his first start. Remember, his D-Coordinator at UCLA was DeWayne Walker... the Skins former DB coach, so he was already familiar with the defense the Skins intended to run this season. Anyone think Cerrato knew that when he drafted him?

Congrats to Horton.

Though it seems like he's getting credit when other guys made the plays. Horton didn't cause the fumble, but he picked it up. He didn't deflect the ball into the air, he caught it after Smoot broke up the pass.

Of course he did... Walker made the recommendation to Blatche -- who was a voting member in the draft war room -- and the Skins selected Horton with their final 7th round pick (4th from last). They still needed a backup SS and didn't pick up Stuart Schweigert until June 2nd...

That said, the coaches will review the tape and make a determination on the quality of Horton's play. We all remember the fumble recovery and interceptions -- all excellent plays -- but did he do the little things that Doughty does well (e.g. tackle and be in the proper position) that make the defense better?

It's pretty apparent that Horton has an excellent shot to be the Skins starting SS in the future. Although he may require a little more experience before the coaches are confident in his abilities to excel in all the defensive packages...

Gus Ferrotte, who might be named starter for Vikes soon, is a 15 YEAR VET!!!!!!

Gus has been a journeymen, no doubt, but 15 years in the NFL is no joke. I am sure his family is financially secure, no small thing in todays economy!

Reading the earlier comments regarding slang was hilarious. Age is not the reason some guys didn't know the slang. It was cultural. I'm more than 40 and "steal" - to punch someone in the face, most often while the person is not on guard for it - was a part of the lexicon when I was a kid. "Bama" has been as long as I can remember. It used to only be applied to a person who was not hip, especially in terms of dress, but is now used to describe any male person in any circumstance.
But you all weren't nearly as funny as Czabe and Andy Polley who stopped the tape a couple of times because they did not understand some of the street vernacular Portis was spittin'.

Congrats to Horton. But before we begin the HOF ceremonies for him, let's see if he can do a few other things besides be in the right place at the right time...little things like tackle and cover and play within the D scheme. But I do have to admit that it was nice to see a secondary player grab and catch a ball. Perhaps he could help us out at wide receiver?

Hey what's with denigrating Horton for being able to catch a tipped ball. He can CATCH THE DAMNED BALL which is what I've been yelling at Smootie and Senor Carlos seems like forever.

Now, they don't have to catch it. Just tip the mutha up and Chris "Whodat" Horton will do it for you. He's where he's supposed to be, dammit.

I still remember the time LaVar decided to play the defense as called and got hit right in the stomach with the football. To his credit he caught it. Everybody on the field was just gobsmacked, especially the quaterback who expected LaVar to be stuck like glue to his right tackle.

By the way, I hate Dallas. Dallas Sucks. Jerry Jones is a face-lifted lizard-lipped creep who's probably got Cooley's picture stuck up on his bathroom wall.

So thanks to that bonehead move by DeSean Jackson, FanHouse did an article on The Dumbest Football Play in NFL History. And sure enough, there's Gus Frerotte's play on the list.

What timing...

http://nfl.fanhouse.com/2008/09/16/the-dumbest-plays-in-nfl-history/

Gus Frerotte -- 1997, Washington vs. NY Giants -- Ways to celebrate that are acceptable: high-fives, spiking the ball (after you get in the end zone), the Mile Hile Salute, the Dirty Bird or even something Terrell Owens comes up with. Not a proper way to celebrate, ramming your head into a wall after you score on a one-yard run. Frerotte, after scoring a touchdown to tie the game 7-7 with the Giants, went and rammed his head into a padded wall to celebrate. But behind the pad? Straight cement. Frerotte had to leave the game and get X-rays on his sprained neck, which came back negative.

Posted by Mike Florio on September 16, 2008, 5:42 p.m. EDT

Redskins running back Clinton Portis and former Redskins running back Brian Mitchell got into a verbal brouhaha on Tuesday during The John Thompson Show on ESPN 980.

Portis doesn’t appreciate criticism from Mitchell, specifically in reference to comments from Portis last week during which he mused about playing for another team.

The audio is right here.

Portis clearly was irritated with Mitchell. At times, Portis rambled on and on, with Mitchell periodically throwing a jab at Portis, which would only get him even more whipped up.

“Can I interrupt, gentlemen?” Coach Thompson finally said, before urging Portis and Mitchell to calm down.

Anyways, I also decided that I hate Tony Kornheiser on MNF. I've tried to give him the benefit of the doubt b/c I like his columns and used to listen to him with Andy Pollin on 980.

The Jets have announced this evening that punter Ben Graham has been waived.

It was a difficult ending to a rough start to the season for the Thunder from Down Under. In the home opener against New England on Sunday, Graham had one of the most ineffective days in his fourth season as the Jets punter. His four punts netted 27.3 yards and the Patriots' ensuing drives after all four kicks started on the Jets 48 or deeper into plus territory.

Graham's story has been an inspiring one. Originally scouted while he was still starring for the Geelong Cats in the Australian Football League in 1997 by then-Jets assistant coach Eric Mangini, he postponed exploring opportunities in the NFL until 2005, when he got an offer to try out for the Jets' punting job.

He won the job at the age of 31, brought his family with him from Geelong to Long Island, and settled in for three seasons as the Green & White's often magical punter, delivering his "drop punts," end-over-end kicks that often bounced straight in the air and were downed by the Jets' coverage team. Last season was his best in punts downed inside the opponents' 10-yard line (9) and inside the five (6).

Graham's best season was probably 2006, when he was reunited with Mangini, who took over as the team's head coach, and had career highs in gross average (44.2) and inside-the-20 kicks (26).

His gross was consistently around 43.7 yards, but his net dropped to a career-low 36.6 last season, and his hang time unofficially was also the shortest of his career. This season, despite seeming to have gotten new life in his leg — he drilled an 86-yarder in the Green & White Practice at Hofstra Stadium a month ago. But his hangtime suffered on six punts at Miami and then came the Patriots game.

The team did not have any immediate announcements on who will replace Graham as punter.

From ESPN Insider -

Redskins 29, Saints 24
Washington
1. Washington showed good balance on offense with a patient ground attack and a high-percentage, short passing game. Redskins QB Jason Campbell has became more comfortable in the pocket and delivered the ball to all levels as the game progressed. His vision and decision-making was excellent and helped give the Redskins their first victory of the 2008 season.
2. The Redskins' defense appeared to match up with the Saints' offensive speed and quickness much better than it did with the Giants' power in Week 1. Clearly defensive coordinator Greg Blache focused on taking RB Reggie Bush out of the game by always assigning an extra defender to him. Washington's speed and quickness was evident in its pursuit most of the afternoon and the Redskins' front four put pressure on QB Drew Brees often out of their base 4-3 scheme.


New Orleans
1. The Saints were unable to get Bush the ball downfield and were frustrated most of the contest. Bush got his touches on off-tackle and perimeter run plays as well as short crossing patterns and dump offs, but was unable to turn them into big plays. As a result, Brees appeared to force the ball to Bush on more than one occasion, but was unable to move the chains.
2. The Saints played a bend-but-don't-break defensive approach with vanilla looks early in the contest. Washington moved the ball effectively with a controlled, short passing game versus the Saints' base two-deep coverage. As the game progressed, Campbell gained more confidence, stayed in the pocket to distribute the ball effectively and picked apart the Saints' zone coverages.

Not a big fan of Jasno, but nice article he did on Zorn for tomorrow. Easy to see why he likes Zorn. Hope Zorn is given a real chance to succeed here regardless of our record this year.


"I want to win for many reasons," Zorn said. "For the franchise, for the Washington Redskins nation. I don't take that lightly at all. My intensity level to win, I couldn't muster any more intensity towards that. So I don't think anybody ever has to worry about how I view winning just because I'm upfront and honest.

"But the second thing with that is I want to have fun. Wouldn't it be a pain for [the media] if you had to try to grind out of me what you're looking for for a story? That's no fun every day. Or me being dishonest and you guys have to try to go around me? If I can't answer a certain question, then I may say that I just can't answer that.

Come back and get a name when you're banging Chris Cooley's wife, okay?

Cooley made Drudge- a little late -but he made it.

So I'm hoping Horton gets some playing time against Zona, Warner is known for throwing interceptions.

Congrats to Horton.

Though it seems like he's getting credit when other guys made the plays. Horton didn't cause the fumble, but he picked it up. He didn't deflect the ball into the air, he caught it after Smoot broke up the pass.

Al,

Maybe it would have been better, if he would of let those tip balls hit the ground, like they have done so many times in the past.

You can turn any thing into a negative, I guess because he was a draft pick and we know how much you hate Cerrato, you just can not give the guy any credit.

Congrats to Horton. But before we begin the HOF ceremonies for him, let's see if he can do a few other things besides be in the right place at the right time...little things like tackle and cover and play within the D scheme. But I do have to admit that it was nice to see a secondary player grab and catch a ball. Perhaps he could help us out at wide receiver?

Posted by: Dave! | September 16, 2008 5:51 PM

Dave,

I think he did do other things he shut down Shokey when he was covering him, and Doughty could not cover me so there is no comparison there. He also made a great tackle on a 3 and 2 that stopped a drive. I did not here Blache say anything about the kid playing outside the scheme.

PLEASE don't interpret this as a shot at the FO--oh, what the hell, go ahead--but I think Zorn wanted to keep Frostie.

Posted by: Corkczar | September 16, 2008 2:54 PM

This has only been talked about 100 times, Zorn and Smith wanted to keep Brooks, but I guess no one over there is telling the truth because they are so evil. I am sure they would keep draft picks just to prove a point becasue they do not care about winning.

Flounder,

I think the point is that before Horton becomes the next Ronnie Lott, Ken Houston, or Lemar Parrish he's got to play. HOWEVA, if Blache thinks flu-bug is better than I'm going to go with that. Don't get me wrong so far, I like what I see.

Posted by: bangkokben | September 17, 2008 7:46 AM | Report abuse

Bang,

I am with you I want to see the kid play alot more, I just think he is better then Doughty now so if he is better then what you have play him.

Is he the next Ronnie Lot, time will tell but what he is now is a guy who plays hard and flies to the ball, we need that on this defense.

Where is the 'real' redskin insider? Puh-leaze. The big story has not been addressed - which RI blogger was near Reed Doughty's food supply? Inquiring minds want to know. Flu-bug, 24 hour virus, or food poisoning? This is the highest profile food poisoning since that whole british-russian spy thing.

I think the coaches have to be seeing this same kind of stuff out of horton in practice. Ever since the ffirst perseason game he recovers on on side kick in the first second hes on an NFl field then has a sack on a defensive tackle sized QB. If its this evident that hes a baller in the games were seeing then he has to be doing it in fron t of the coaches. I imagine they know how imporatnt this kid can be swarming to the ball. Even if he dosent start this game, which he should he will see condsiderable time in rotation. bad time for reed to get sick if Horton can produce anything close to what he did the last game doughtys back to backup.

Posted by: Stu | September 17, 2008 7:57 AM | Report abuse

Reed is a superb back-up - okay starter. The reason he get's so much hate here is because is the weakest link. Horton would still be the weakest link of the defense and everyone who wants to annoint him now will turn on him as soon as he makes a mistake.

I hate the fact that my expectations have changed from - let's just see some improvement - to - Arizona is a must win with road games at Dallas and Philly following. Crummy schedule.

Posted by: bangkokben | September 17, 2008 8:05 AM | Report abuse

I think people will and should give Horton the time he or anyone would need to adjust into the NFL as a rookie. Doughty is not a starter, backup ill give him that he is an intelligent player. The only reason he was starting was due to one iof the greatest loses the NFL has seen. he played admirable, not great he wasnt a star preformer but nobody noticed his defeciencies because everybodys eyes were still blurry. Once he was given the keys told he was the guy it was clear that he is not capable of doing it. Horton will have faliures this year but he will adjust. Look at his stats right now in limited playing time, regular full season starter would be happy with gettting that many turnovers in a year.

bang,

I would rather go through some growing pains with a rookie who could be our SS for the next 10 years. Then continue to have those same pains with a guy who should be a backup.

Good morning...and beep beep.

Flounder,

I go with the coach's decision. Last I checked Doughty didn't lose any games for us. Having said that I'd be surprised if he's still the starter at the end of the season.

Redskin Brethren,I need your input on this one:I found myself in a heated debate with another skins fan (its amazing to me that I spend more time arguing with other skins fans about OUR players than I do with fans of other teams)but anyway,the conversation went like this:
HIM:Man we better be on point or were gonna get smoked in Dal and Phila.
ME:True,but when you have an All-Pro safety a lot of that stuff that was open deep down the middle wont be there.
HIM:We dont have an AP safety so whats your point?
ME:Yes we do,Laron was an alternate last year(in his rookie season I might add.)
HIM:Alternates aren't considered AP's,get real.
ME:Uh alts are considered to be AP's or they wouldn't name them,they would just let any safety show up in case somebody else couldn't play.
HIM:Man,Laron is suspect and he is going to be exposed.
ME:Name one safety in the NFC you would take over him?
HIM:Brian Dawkins,I would even take Mike Brown over him.
ME:WTF!!!Man listen there are only 3 safety's in the NFL I would take over Dirty,SANDERS,POLUMALO AND A HEALTHY REED,THATS IT,LIST CLOSED!!
Now Brethren help me out here,am I looking at LL with Burgandy and Gold colored glasses,or is there another safety other than the 3 I named that is better than him?Your thoughts.
