It's DeMulling

Heard from a few people that the Skins have deicded on Rick DeMulling. They spent more time tonight debating the decision and heard that both he and Vincent passed physicals, but they ended up going with DeMulling.

Not sure of exactly how they will go ahead with the transaction tomorrow, and who they will release, but I know that for now it looks like they will not be putting Randy on IR, though they will likely continue to gather info from the doctors and see how he heals.

They have been getting by without the two kids they claimed off waivers two weeks ago - Boyd and Bodiford - and are also carrying 6 safeties.

Heard Vincent's workout went pretty well, so he could still be a guy to watch down the road should, gasp, more injuries strike the line.

I've laid them out on your Wiki for others to improve and complete -- cliches we're (that is, the Royal We) tired of; who you can never criticize and who you can always criticize.

ESPN's Scouts Inc. -

2007 Scouting Report - Scouts Inc.
Grade: 65 | Key
Alert: None

Comment: After being a three-year starter in Indianapolis, DeMulling has been inconsistent during the last two seasons with the Lions. He brings athleticism to the offensive line and seems to be a good fit at guard for the Lions' offense, which includes both pulling and trapping in the schemes. He is a solid technician and a knee-bender who plays with good body position and leverage. DeMulling excels when given the opportunity to block in space. He tracks defenders well and is able to get in position to make the block on the outside or on the second level. DeMulling's athletic feet and balance also show up in pass protection, as he does a nice job of bending his knees, has good hand placement and handles double moves and counter moves well. Where DeMulling does not shine is when faced with a power or bull rusher, because he does not anchor well and often will get run over. This problem is also evident in the run game when playing a stout two-gap defensive tackle, as he struggles to drive block physical defenders at the point of attack. For an offensive lineman with such athleticism and experience, DeMulling seems to lack awareness at times, not coming off protections to effectively pick up blitzers and sometimes burying his head on combination blocks and missing the next-level defender. These inconsistencies in DeMulling's play have been much more evident in Detroit than his first four seasons with the Colts.

Figure if we can somehow win 4 of the next 5 against a bunch of cream puffs, then we can make the playoffs. 6-1. Or maybe win 3 of them and be 5-3.

Its just our back nine looks pretty tough and this team is a little too flawed to string together victories against a bunch of quality teams.

Madden 08 ratings

Demulling rates an 83 overall with 86 for run block and 89 for pass block. Awareness rating of 77. A servicable rating overall.

Vincent also rated an 83 overall with a 90 for run block and 80 for pass block. His awareness is 76.

Vincent is rated much stronger than Demulling (93 vs. 86).

Swell. The Rdskins top run blocker, a near all-Pro Guard is replaced by a guy who can't handle bullrushers, and who hasn't exactly lite up the horrific Detroits for the past two years.

I gotta figure he's a backup until Fabio Paninni wears out, but oh my.

I'll say this, if the OL continues to play as well as it has with scrubbinis, Ol Joey Buges should get a Freedom Medal or some other recog as assistant coach of the year.

I've been on the "No DeMulling" bandwagon since I saw Jasno first mention his name. I've read numerous articles about this guy and there is no reason to believe that he will be any better than Fabini or Pucillo. I hope they don't think he's going to come in to start. This better be for depth only. Even so, I say bad decision especially when they had a better option right in the DC area.

DeMulling over Vincent? Obviously just another fan that only knows what this blog tells me, but tea leaves pointed toward Vincent. Early assumption is maybe DeMulling will be more receptive to Bugel's tutoring?

On a positive note.....Fabini did good against the EaGals other than the false starts. That will be worked on in practice and he should do fine so we won't have to worry about DeMulling. We're 2-0 and we're getting better. We'll be okay as a team.

Posted by: bigfish | September 19, 2007 10:56 PM | Report abuse

Based on that scouting report, I can see why they went with DeMulling. He's athletic and good at pulling, which were things they used Randy for a lot. Plus, he was productive with the Colts (a good team) and then not so with the Lions (a bad team). Some good coaching from Buges and Gibbs will make him a better player than he was. And we may pick up Vincent as well given time. Besides, Fabini may not be great but he got the job done in a pinch.

Why does everyone assume that Vinnie made the decision rather than Joe Bugel?

Do you think cost might have been a factor? The 'Skins are pressing tight against the cap and they may not have been able to hire Vincent if the Rams are offering more than the vet minimum.

And, which DeMulling do you think we're getting? The one who played four good years in Indy -- where the coaching was excellent -- or the one who played two years in Detroit where coaching has been an issue?

"Rick DeMulling came back after a couple years with the Lions, hoping to settle back into his former home with the Colts' offensive line. He wasn't up to par, and the Colts dumped him.

It's probably less painful getting cut by Colts coach Tony Dungy than any other coach, given his fatherly, encouraging demeanor. But you're still cut, and it's further proof there's no place for sentimentality in pro football.

DeMulling, who hoped to revive his career, would undoubtedly concur.

"We just felt like we had some of our younger players that were going to do a good job for us, and Rick wasn't playing that much better than some of the young guys," Dungy said."

OnceAgain, I watched Inside The NFL and totally agree with you. What bugged me even more is when they said that Dallas is "on top in the NFC East." Both the Skins and Boys are 2-0 - how did they get better than us? Because they have scored more points?

As for DeMulling, Sportsnet said he was very "versatile" - could play multiple positions on the O line. And it sounds like he is a backup and that Fabini will be the starter.

My whole point of all of these articles is because the Giant media is concerned with the Defense and they assume the offense can score easily.

I just hope we can continue being the under dog in the 1st half of the season. Especially on the defensive side. Campbell and Cooooooley are begining to get plenty of Face time. Did you notice the many questions about Coooooley in the Gibbs 2.4 and JC Q&A?

Scouting them out on Madden08 is no basis for a system of government.
Go break down the film for a couple of hours, then call each in for a workout. Then you can weigh in on this decision with more than a video game number in mind.

I heard that Vincent's biggest drawback is that he was sneaking cheetos onto the practice field. Which is fine, except he kept wiping the dust on his jersey -- making him "orange" and therefore unhittable.

I'm not as worried about the Giants as I'm worried about overconfidence.

The Skins beat two struggling teams and it took everything they had to win those games. But now the Skins are 2-0 and the positive spin has started. The rankings have improved. Has overconfidence crept in?

Luckily, there are still signs of disrespect to key on. In virtually every poll or power ranking, the Redskins are rated as the worst 2-0 team in the league. The point spread started at Redskins -4. -4! The home team usually gets a 3 point knock - so a 2-0 team playing a 0-2 team missing half it's starters is only a 4 point favorite? A one point shift? That is disrespect.

If only St. Joe believed in gambling, he could use that slight as motivation in the locker room.

My one true fear: Sally Jenkins.

Jobu.

She's out there, lurking in the tall grass, preparing a positive article that will jinx the Redskins, just like she did in '05.

mugs, the back story is that chris Larry is a techno whiz kid, and he's been agitating for some time for WashPo to outfit this here blog with some of that Web 2.0 gimcrackery... like the stuff Dan Steinbog does over on his thing.

cL and I discussed this the other night, and I opined that Steinbog doesn't appear obliged to do any actual reporting, so he can spend all day goofing around with his blog. Jasno, on the other hand, is on the horn with league experts and talent evaluators all his waking hours.

And Cindy loves us, that much is obvious, but she loves us like that cool aunt who lives in another state and so can pretty much dictate when and for how long she spends time with you.

And from WashPo's perspective this ol' blog is probably humming along just fine without all the bells and whistles they're using to prop up ol'Steinbog over there. Just a theory.

The Giants have faced the Redskins 150 times, making this their most frequently-contested rivalry. Last season the Giants swept Washington for the first time since 2002, earning a 19-3 victory in Giants Stadium on Oct. 8 and a 34-28 win in the season finale in FedEx Field on Dec. 30.

My excitement over the possibility that we will simply overpower the Gints -- which is what the first two weeks of the season seem to indicate will happen -- is tempered by my worry that we'll have trouble with them early and let them hang around, and we'll get frustrated and let this be a much closer game than it "should" be.

It's not Sunday yet, is it?

Excerpt from the Coughlin presser:

Coughlin didn't appear pleased questions about Redskins TE Chris Cooley's possibly stretching the field and said the short passing game that's been the problem with covering the tight end. When reminded the Cowboys' Jason Witten certainly ripped the secondary down the field, Coughlin agreed then said "We're going to argue about coverage? Is that what we want to do now?"

The past 2 years Gibril has not look like the same player as he did his rookie year where he had 3 interceptions and 3 sacks in 8 games. People have wondered why, but the reason has come out that he was in the completely wrong defensive system. Gibril was always responsible for covering the tight end, he said he also had to watch a run-gap away from the tight end. He then had to make a choice at the snap--cover the tight end or come in on run support--and he had to be right because there were no fail-safes behind him. If he was wrong, the whole coverage broke down.

I remain ambivalent about the Area 51 moniker. Area 51 is a super secret base in the desert where nothing officially happens, but there are a lot of rumors about it. I find that kind of weird and funny in a conspiracy theory sort of way, but not in the least menacing or frightening. And I find the thought of running a pass pattern in the vicinity of Messrs. Taylor and Landry to be menacing and frightening. And what happens in the Redskins D backfield is the opposite of secret, because there are usually plenty of cameras trained on the action. Even if we don't get replays of every hit...

Guys, we need to remember that Keydrick Vincent went and met with the Rams earlier in the day yesterday and did not get a contract offer from them either. So something must be up for them to go with DeMulling.

Let's just hope for a speedy recovery for Randy Thomas.

A Fan,

That is comical, but not suprising, about Lloyd. The guy is idiot and everyone has known this for years... yet another reason why I am still blown away by JOE GIBBS and co.'s decision to get him...

Anyway, word on the street is that DeMulling sucks. But I also thought Fabini sucked in the pre-season and he ended up playing pretty well on Monday night, so I guess we'll see.

If money was the deciding factor between this guy and K. Vincent, like someone suggested, then this where Arch's dead money, Lloyd's cap number, etc come back to really haunt you.

I also think the Skins need to hang onto Randy and cut a safety or one of those WR's. Can you imagine the boost, both on the field and emotionally, the team would get from a week 12-13-14 return from RT with the possibility of the playoffs looming???

One wish for the team: please, please, please don't listen or believe all the complimentary articles and broadcasts about the team since Monday night. These were the same folks who said you had no chance going into th egame, and many picked you to finish dead last in the East.

While it was a good win, you're capable of playing much, much better. And you'll need to on Sunday. The Giants are a proud team with a knack for rebounding when everyone thinks they're ready to implode. Monday's win will count for nothing if you lay an egg with a division loss at home on Sunday. Remember how easy it was for Tiki Barber the last time you played. Their O-line thinks it was their blocking more than Tiki's ability that led to his big night, and they want to prove that point on Sunday. Shut 'em down! This time it's our turn to show them how to run block and how to shut down the run!! Go 'Skins!

Here are the skins keys to victory.

Giants WR's are just like the Iggles (is Plexiglass playing?), bump and run them.

Send 5 guys at Eli at all times. 4 DL,s and one blitzer. Never let him get comfy... we play bump and pressure = no deep passes. Everything in front and fly to the ball, punish them.

Have Taylor and L2 bracket Shockey early and get him outta his game. Once he starts complaining he will not be effective. Hit him late once with #51 and let him know 'all-day'.

On offense, start out 4 wide with one back. Get their LB's out of the game with this package and leave their D line alone on pressuring. Frustrate them... Their CB's are their achillies. Once they get down as a team, their will breaks.

Run Portis in the 1st Q, exclusively. Then Betts the entire second Q to grind them down. Then CP starts the 3rd for one drive (after they switch up their D to deal with Betts) which throws them off. Then put Betts back in for the rest of the 3rd Q.

4th Q ride CP.

Screens to Moss and El, all day. Cooley down the seam when they creep up.

I'm not saying he'll suck here, but that is what I've read... I'm also not living in outer space to think that we can pick up a pro bowler at this time of the year. When did I say that? I just think we could have had a more serviceable guy, like maybe Vincent, with more cap room.

FITZGERALD EYEBALLING ARIZONA EXIT?

Only two regular-season games into the Ken Whisenhunt era, rumors already are flying receiver Larry Fitzgerald is looking to leave the Cardinals when his rookie contract ends.

Fitzgerald, as the rumor goes, is not a big fan of Whisenhunt's run-based offense, and for good reason. Fitzgerald currently is averaging only five catches and 53.5 yards per game, which puts him on pace for 80 receptions and 856 receiving yards for the season. He currently has no receiving touchdowns in 2007.

I couldn't care less about Pierce.......now. It was a huge mistake to let him go that they just now remedied with Fletcher. But now that it is fixed who cares? I'd take Fletcher over him straight up, just wished they'd done it two years ago.

Gotta say that I've never seen DeMulling or Vincent play, they're both roughly the same age, size, and both started on teams that historically have had very good lines........and both unemployed for a reason. So I won't begin to say who they should or shouldn't sign, I trust Joe Bugel and Joe Gibbs to identify the better guy.

Scouting them out on Madden08 is no basis for a system of government. Go break down the film for a couple of hours, then call each in for a workout. Then you can weigh in on this decision with more than a video game number in mind.

...yet, I could swear this is how Vinny Cerrato scouts, especially last year. Honestly, how else can you miss the 'intangibles' (or in the case of Duh Reciever, the 'intangentials') of the players you're bringing in?

As to DeMulling vs. Vincent, it's already been said - it was probably a cap issue. Vincent has to know he's considered the top cow in the FA guard pool at the moment, so he probably asked for semi-top-billing money. He was probably more likely going to get it with St. Louis than he was here. Would have preferred the guy, but a working body is a working body, and we have to make do with the wafer-thin wiggle room we have with the salary cap.

As to the Pierce thing - are we going to visit that AGAIN? Last year's harping on it was enough. Heck, I know I was guilty of it. But Pierce and Ryan happened - it's done, and over with. We picked up a great find in LoFle'ker, so that bit of memory is on the wayside. Too bad Pierce is acting as he is, but I imagine that it's bound to happen when your teams is on the elevator headed towards the Deep, Deep South....

Looks like a good bio to me. DeMulling will be great on traps and pulls. Can play both guard spots and centre. I can see why we signed him.

Posted by: Jeff | September 20, 2007 10:45 AM | Report abuse

The salary cap wasn't an issue here, we have room and we could have structured a deal to get him if we wanted him but nobody (except a situation like Tank Johnson or Left-oversand-wich) gets a deal for anything over 1 year at the vet minimum at this stage of the season. For almost any guy out there they are just hoping for a call, a 1 year deal, and a chance to show they still have value and are worth signing in the offseason. Vincent won't get any better a deal than DeMulling or anybody else still out there.

Posted by: Jack | September 20, 2007 10:49 AM | Report abuse

chRIs Larry, what's with the ads on the wiki? Is someone getting minute fractions of coin for everytime someone visits the site?

Skinz, I didn't want to think about it till after the Giants game, but I was more confident about the putting the Lions and the Packer in the W column before the season started. [You guys know how I think the Lions are going to do this season ... but I will spare myself the flames reserved for peri and not repeat myself re: the Lions.]

I don't see the Giants as a trap game, but unlike the start of last season, I don't think the Skins are going into this game with their heads down and questioning themselves. This is why, in the preseason, the only MUST WIN for me was the Miami game. Its psychological. I think the Skins return to FedEx field on Sunday in a much better place psychologically than the Giants. There is a difference btwn arrogance and cautious confidence. Notwithstanding the O-line injuries (or maybe because of it), I think (hope) the Skins have the latter.

On DeMulling, with the critique from scouts.com, plus the Madden numbers, my only takeaway is that he is the guy for the right side of the line (i.e., the non-blind side guard). The bigger deal is going to be about his body awareness in relation to Rabach and Wade. Like other peeps here, I sense Fabini is going to do fine, develop his chemistry with Rabach/Wade, burn off his yips and reduce offsides penalties, and start until he gets hurt, at which point DeMulling takes the field. Just my guess anyway.

Sween,

I agree with you on the fast start. This is one of those "Kick'em while they are down" and "don't give them any reason to hope" games.

We need to jump on them early and go into halftime with the lead and I feel they will crumble.

My concern is that Al wants to play with his new toys and starts passing alot thinking their Secondary sucks. (Which is does)

This game needs to be played like all of them. Run it down their throats and keep their O off the field, slow down their passrush and crush their will.

I have a feeling they switch it up this time and go for a pass. Either across the middle to Coooooley or a play action bomb to Moss. Then again I also had a gut feeling all last week that McNabb was going to be put out for the season which isn't all that out of the question considering how the Philly fans are calling for his head now.

Posted by: Redcoat | September 20, 2007 11:22 AM | Report abuse

Looks to me like they decided to go with Fabini for now. Either Vincent still had injury issues from last season or he is more of a starter as opposed to a guy who does special teams stuff. Based on recent experience Demulling has spent more time as a backup / special teams guy than as a starter over the last 2 years. Vincent has started almost exclusively.

They still might bring Vincent back depending on how things go this week. I wouldn't be surprised to seem them do some rush training at guard with Heyer. Thomas likes Heyer and could help him. Technically, if he really is the "sixth man" Bugel envisions then he would have to learn that position next. So I am going to assume they go with Fabin, while they start working with Heyer at guard and if things don't go well with Fabini they bring in Vincent. By next season they should have a pretty solid OL with depth ala the Eagles.

Good point. There seems to be a number of rather tall guards. I gotta believe it has to do more with center of gravity.

I have a rather long torso but stubby legs. Only 5'9" but when I'm sitting next to most six footers, I'm taller. It is my assumption that T. Wade doesn't share my low center of gravity.

"The 6-7, 309-pounder played for Dallas last season, but previously he was a long-time starting tackle with the New York Jets. He has started 114-of-129 regular-season games in his career."

Guys like Joe Jacoby, Ray Brown, Raleigh McKenzie played both positions. In the case of McKenzie he played center as well. I think perhaps Jasno sometimes missing things ... he has these preset notions or perceptions, (that Joe Gibbs is as conservative as Marty Marge Schottenheimer or George Allen which is L-U-D-I-C-R-O-U-S!!! After the end of the 1st half call by Gibbs I think we can put that to rest RIGHT, Jasno?), that cloud his keen observations.

I think he keeps missing the ball on the quiet kid behind the scenes, Stephon Heyer. I think that he is now the new "project" and will be taught to play guard. If he learns it as fast as he did tackle you could see him out there playing the role Buges seems to have envisioned for him ... the sixth man coming in at tackle and guard ala Jacoby, McKenzie, and Brown. A perfect choice given his popularity with the starting veterans.

I'm not sure if Green is done yet, I think we'll need another game or two to truly know one way or the other. We committed SO many bone-headed errors against the grrls that we probably would have lost even if he hadn't thrown the INTs. Lemon is a serviceable backup but scares no-one in the NFL.

I posted the Salguero column here yesterdat talking about JT and maybe Zach being traded.

I actually think it would be good for them to finish with a team that has a chance to win (we don't) and would be good for the Fins by helping us move the whole rebuilding along by freeing cap space and maybe adding some draft picks. It would also help the fans get their expectation levels set right.

Sad to see them go but I don;t think it will happen anyway.

Marcy Son! Marcy!

What a victory against the Eagles. That was a game we never would have won in previous years. There was so much repping to the death in Glover Park. Bourbon Rick cut his Diesel jeans off into daisy dukes and rolled up with his stunning GF with a white tee and hiking boots. When the chips seemed down, we drank some small batch, Michter's bourbon, the greatest bourbon in the world. But again, that's why we call him Bourbon Rick.

There has been a lot of focus on LaRon Landry, and rightfully so (We told you he was tight...remember...about a year ago we were talking about how if the Skins didn't draft him, we would all die?).

But being lost in the shuffle, is the EVolution of Sean Taylor. Oh my God. The dude is having an absolutely monster first 2 games. No one, and I mean no one, is throwing to him down the middle. No one. Unbelievable. I feel like I am watching the old Deion Sanders aka Sanderclaus (WHAT!). No one is testing him. And I don't know if there's anyone in the league that is better at the delayed blitz than Unicron (my new name for Sean Taylor...Unicron ate planets. Watch the movie).

And Unicron is bringing the noise in the rare instance that someone throws on him. I think we see our first Unicron INT this weekend.

Looking forward to 4 o'clock on Sunday while we listen to French electronica, drink bourbon and watch B-Reezy do his world famous low-dance. ArtMonkToTheSticks knows what I'm talkin about.

From the perspective of the Skins' D, Derrick Ward has to be viewed as a liability. Explosive rusher with fresh legs. With Eli pulling his best Brunell, the Giants will remember that they are an NFC East team ... and will pound, pound, pound up the middle. This will be the Westbrook Test, part 2.

I agree that the Skins will pick on Aaron Ross, but he himself is a quasi-stud, first rounder, most recent Jim Thorpe award-winner, fast and -- unlike Carlos Rogers -- has a TON of picks from his college campaign in Texas. If they DO target on him, they need to do it in the first few plays ... when he still has his first game starter yips. If he gets comfortable, it could get ugly. Personally, I thought he should have been the top CB in the draft (at least ahead of Revis) ... of course, that was all just based on stats, having played college ball in a winning tradition, and mock draft reports, but still, that guy is a flashing yellow for me.

Okay, still here. The only way the Redskins lose this game is if the defense plays like it did last year.

I really dig these throwback jerseys and think the "R" helmets are okay, but I kind of wish we hadn't gone with yellow britches. They're just not going to look like the Skins, IMO. Burgundy trousers would have been more aesthetically pleasing, even if not 'historically accurate.'

I'm in the minority opinion in that I did not like the 70th anniversary costumes we wore. Just didn't do anything for me.

And I prefer the "center line single feather" helmet design over any other design worn before the current Indian head one.

But I should stress that neither of our throwbacks is anywhere in the vicinity of the throwback abominations the Eagles and Steelers are wearing to celebrate their 74th seasons. Those awful things should be piled up at midfield and burned.

These kiids are laying some serious hurt, and the league is taking notice. I belive their reputation is shaking the opposition receiver corps before the Skins even show up!

That is some GOOD D!

More Kool-Aid please...

While uni talk is going on, do you guys prefer the burgundy or the white jersey? I like the burgundy better, maybe because they're a novelty with gibbs choosing to where the white at home and we only see the burgundy maybe once or twice per year.

Nate,

Part of me says "F the Boren Ultimatum" b/c quite frankly its a bit one side quest without much redmeat thrown at us to help...

But I am on bored....so onward...

Redcoat, bangkokben, I had no idea how to work this into the blog today but I see you've already laid the groundwork.

This morning I saw a little person waiting for the bus, and she was wearing an all black outfit and what I can only describe as a witch hat. I kid you not.

Sometimes life in Portland is like a David Lynch movie.

Dik

I hear ya. But if anyone plays better against the 'skins than against the rest of the league, it's Amani Toomer.

It will be interesting after the bye to see how well the Lions receivers catch the ball.

Final thought: nothing would please me more than to have the 'skins opponents lead the league in drops at the end of the year.

Don't doubt that the coaches will have them ready to play hard against the Giants. The Giants have embarrased us the last couple years (esp Tiki) and we owe them a good old fashioned SJK KICKING!

If you heard Joe's presser on Tues, he knows how the last few games have gone with them and I'll bet he wants blood...

Time to get up for this boys... We smell blood now lets stick the daggar in the heart.

NO MERCY!

Oh It's coming... 2-0 aint jack, we have a long way to go...

HAIL!

nah;

I dont like when we wear burgundy, but I personally like my burgundy jersey better than the white one

I am still waiting for my throwback from cbs sportsline. Did anyone else get theirs?

Enough of the 'queer eye on the redskin guy', ok? Geez!

I don't care what they wear as long as the Gint's uni's are covered in mud & blood on Sunday.

Hail!

I like the old burgandy. The burgandy they wear now is too saturated.
