Showers in Short Supply; Injury Report

From Barry Svrluga:

Most of the Redskins players showered and dressed without complications after the game, but by the time a few stragglers headed for the showers, the water was off. Offensive lineman Pete Kendall, standing in a towel in the middle of the locker room, said, "Sort of a fitting ending to today." He and defensive end Andre Carter were two players affected.

...

The Redskins reported the following injuries:

T Chris Samuels (knee sprain)
RB Ladell Betts (knee sprain)
WR James Thrash (knee sprain)
CB Fred Smoot (groin)
S Chris Horton (ankle)

All players will be re-evaluated Monday and Coach Jim Zorn will update their status at his press conference tomorrow.

Cindy or JLC or whoever knows, who failed to blitz on that Avery catch over Torrence? Was it Horton? Blache said the pass isn't thrown or is at least hurried if the blitzer came.

More on "Water-gate" from Metro reporter David Fahrenthold:

The water problem began early in the third quarter, team officials said.

John White, a spokesman for the Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission, said that water pressure at the stadium complex dropped sharply after a pipe ruptured in one of the parking lots and maintenance employees working for the Redskins turned off a water valve to stop further leaking.
White said the drop in pressure “interfered” with the water flow in both home and away locker rooms and that WSSC workers were assisting a FedEx field maintenance team to correct the problem.

that was pathetic...waaaay to conservative on offence...i dont mean run less pass more but a team like that we dont need to control the clock on...there is nothing wrong with the quick score...we just need to put up points...no urgency to score points at all...we need to be more agressive in the passing game...should be running 4 receiver sets and punnishing battered secondaries...as well as a punch them in the mouth running game...

we basically shortened the game for the rams and didnt go for or give ourselves enough time to put them away...

especially in lieu of the turnovers!!!

clock management was horrible...should not be grinding clock when your losing unless youre grinding out the last 2 mins to kick a field goal...they chewed up time in the second half...funny thing is im not even sure we would have a 2 minute offense to score with even if we got the ball back with some time...

we need to be able to shift gears into a quick strike offense and be able to open things up...it only helps the running game...

Watching this Cards-Cowboys game...why would Zona call a timeout with a minute left???

Posted by: CindyBoren | October 12, 2008 7:21 PM | Report abuse

Cindy, I believe they called it just to avoid a delay of game before they punt. Running the clock all the way down.

Posted by: scampbell1975 | October 12, 2008 7:27 PM | Report abuse

The boys O-linemen is grabbed defenders from behind and there was no call.

Yep it is one of those days. ARZ basically now has given the game to DAL. Sucks to be a Redskin fan today. It's like everything is going against us at the last minute.

Posted by: jiacinto | October 12, 2008 7:38 PM | Report abuse

Come on, you Cardinals.

Posted by: freakzilla | October 12, 2008 7:39 PM | Report abuse

At least we aren't in CIN, who are 0-6. That's the best that I can say about today.

Posted by: jiacinto | October 12, 2008 7:40 PM | Report abuse

Yeah DAL has the best luck. They kept the ball after that fumble, although the booth would have reviewed it in their favor anyway. Just like they did two other times earlier in the game.

Posted by: jiacinto | October 12, 2008 7:41 PM | Report abuse

DAL has to punt it and ARZ will get good field position. Maybe there is still hope after all.

Posted by: jiacinto | October 12, 2008 7:42 PM | Report abuse

Game Time!!!!! Yes!!!

Posted by: learnedhand1 | October 12, 2008 7:43 PM | Report abuse

How many lives do they have??? Rome's fumbles and the ball bounces right to him...... blocked punt,...... is it off sides???

Posted by: michael_b_clegg | October 12, 2008 7:43 PM | Report abuse

Freakin' beautiful. That takes a tiny bit of the sour taste out of my mouth. Nice job, Cards.

Posted by: freakzilla | October 12, 2008 7:45 PM | Report abuse

Well at least Dallas lost...

Blocked punt for TD but penalty probably nixes it.

Posted by: jiacinto | October 12, 2008 7:46 PM | Report abuse

There is a God. With DAL's loss WAS still in second place due to the tiebreaker. PHL stays where it is. And even if NYG wins against CLE on Monday, which is a strong possibility, the status quo holds. WAS lucked out today. DAL losing basically cancels out the STL loss. They are no worse off than they were before the game.

Posted by: jiacinto | October 12, 2008 7:48 PM | Report abuse

Every season there is one game a team shouldn't lose but does.

The Redskins just have to make sure that this was IT. No more letdowns against poor teams.

Posted by: MrRedskin21 | October 12, 2008 7:51 PM | Report abuse

We luck out because DAL also lost. We must now root for CLE tomorrow.

- Goodbye Brooks. We can no longer wait for you to get your confidence/adjust to the NFL. You have been poor, but have not contributed to a loss... until now. Cerrato. cancel your show tomorrow and work the phones.
- Kendall, that play will haunt our team this year, and you for years, but will someday fondly be remembered as the most hilariously ill-conceived reception in Redskins history.
- Our defensive backs/linebackers need some time running routes and catching balls from one of our quarterbacks in practice. Either of those dropped ints could have changed the outcome. 2-3 hours a week could make a difference.
- We need a stud pass rusher in the middle. Have for years. Their QB had ample time to step forward to avoid the ends and rearm.
Otherwise, not an awful game, aside from the hugely costly turnovers. Running game was great, passing game OK, if somewhat conservative. Defense solid, except for that last reception. Not sure man was a good choice in that situation. Horton was everywhere, and while he may not give opposing players nightmares like Taylor did, the boy can lay a hit.

The Redskins have obviously never learned/practiced clock management and/or the hurry up offense.

Same thing happened at the end of the Giant game. They just plain don't know how to hurry up when they are losing.(IN this caseit was 9 points--which incidently the Cowboys scored by "clock managementin 1 min.30 seconds today )

Right before the end of the half today, with time running out and two time outs left they wasted time and looked like they had no idea what to do about the clock. You who taped the game---check it out.
