Fletcher, Carter Will Start

The Redskins are scratching the usual suspects, along with DT Kedric Golston, who has an ankle injury (Anthony Montgomery will start in his place), and LB Marcus Washington (ankle), with H.B. Blades starting in his place.

TE Fred Davis, DE Erasmus James, DE Rob Jackson, OL Chad Rinehart, OL Jason Fabini also are scratches. Colt Brennan is the third QB.

The Giants are without WR Plaxico Burress, RB Ahmad Bradshaw, CB Sam Madison, K Lawrence Tynes, DE Jerome McDougle, DT Fred Robbins, T Adam Koets, and LB Jonathan Goff.

Nothing huge on the link I lost, just the NY Daily New headline on Burress and Pierce: Giant Idiots.

Giants K Lawrence Tynes out? Could be HUGE if the game is close!

Why is Chris Carter not a WR coach in the NFL?

Ego's too big, jm220... your ego isn't stroked anywhere near enough if you're coaching, compared to being on a teevee show... just a guess... plus he has to keep up his shameless HoF campaign...

ESPN NFL Countdown just pissed me off. There is nothing similar between Burress carry a gun and shooting himself and what happen to the Reaper.

We all know most of the clowns on ESPN are nothing more than taint-lickers anyway.

They have Carney as their most-of-the-time kicker... Tynes was hurt in preseason, and Carney's kicked well enough all year that he hasn't been able to regain the starting position.
It does say something that they can carry two kickers while we had to release Leigh Torrance.

ahmad bradshaw is out, so no wind? Just earth and fire? Hopefully earth wont play either

No, John Carney is active. He has done almost all the kicking this year for the Gints.

HTTR!

Jacobs is a go. Nontheless, sounds like a push at worst for us on the injury front. Should be a doozie, Judge.

HAIL!!!!!!!!!!!!

We love you 21

Not sure the weather will help the Redskins that much if all week they've been practicing with four and five wide-receiver sets. When does Zorn script the plays? Before or after pre-game warm-ups?

Morning Redskins Nation!

I smell a victory in the air for the Skins!

HAIL 21!!!

Does it smell like burning leaves? If so, you're nowhere near the stadium!

I agree Curzon!!!

By the way, you all might've heard but the 21 induction ceremony will be shown on Redskins.com

HAIL

Will Erasmus James play this year?

Posted by: moonpipe | November 30, 2008 12:11 PM | Report abuse

Thanks for the info LMG, I hadn't heard that.

Hall will start, but he won't be the sub for Springs that Channel 5 said. La Canfora sez: Smoot and Rogers had been the starters the last 5 weeks or so. It's more Hall over Smoot, with Springs playing the nickel, but the official inactive sheet from the team does list Hall in place of Springs.
And Jason Taylor will start at right end in place of Carter. Evans will remain the starter at left end.

HAIL!!! Let's get this one. Miss you Sean.

ESPN just said Fletcher is out. Is that true Cyn?

Plexico shooting himself is just odd. I thought he was shot by another person.

Are there any guys dressed in Blue Unis with droopy mustaches, a big gut and some iron on their hip?

Mebbe the NYPD will bust Pierce before the game.

Posted by: TheCork | November 30, 2008 12:23 PM | Report abuse

will the NFL get Pierce in trouble for his involvemnt with Plex's shooting.

Red at home? What kind of statement is that suppose to say? Red didn't work to well with Pittsburgh.

Our favorite ex-LB should be in trouble right before the Dallas game.

'Member when Wellington Mara died, and the Giants spanked us 36-0 in what they called their "tribute" game? Well today we induct Sean Taylor into the Ring of Fame and play our tribute game against the Giants. Unfortunately, it'll still be 36-0 Giants.....

You sure about that? Hip-Hop today just seems terrible to what/where Hip-Hop used to be.

They're switching it up.....It was Rolling Stones "satisfaction" when I typed it.... Then it went to "Roxanne"...
