Giants' McKenzie, Webster to miss Redskins game

New York Giants tackle Kareem McKenzie and cornerback Corey Webster, both of whom have knee sprains, have been ruled out of Monday night's game against the Redskins at FedEx Field and will not make the trip to D.C., the Giants announced.

William Beatty is expected to start in place of McKenzie and Aaron Ross, who has a hamstring injury and is listed as questionable, is expected to start in Webster's place, according to Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News. If Ross can't go, expect Kevin Dockery to replace him.

JReid: Can you talk about the long flight to NY and why it will inhibit the Redskins chances of winning? Oh, wait... It is at home? Oh, wait... You picked the 'Skins? Oh, wait...I thought you said they would lose their last nine in a row? You see, JReid, I like you, but you are slowly turning into one of these pick-happy, hyperbolic, ESPN types (although you need to step up your suit game). Why don't you just give us "inside" information (as opposed to what's posted on the Giants website) and analysis? When you make picks and they don't pan out--e.g. 'Skins will lose 9 in a row--you lose credibility and you come off as histrionic.

Also to CBoren: How do you vet who gets to be the Redskins insider? Honestly, I have gotten more analysis, depth, and perception from people who don't have the kind of access to the two Jasons have had. It comes off poorly for the paper when the person who should have the most insight is pedestrian in his analysis. Actually, JReid IS better than JLa. Moreover, JLa is embarrassing himself on NFL network. Consider his recent article on "small market teams" doing well in the NFL. Last time I checked, there is revenue sharing and everyone has a cap. Second time I checked, "small market" teams like SD and Arizona who are doing well are actually in highly populated towns. Third time I checked, teams like NO and Minn who are "small market" teams have high team salaries. His article just shows the disconnect and, in a way, it still reflects poorly on the Post. (Thank GOD for Boswell--one of the premiere sportswriters in the country.)

Here is the link to the JLa piece, the most bizarre article of the year:

"This from dud who in past post that Skins keep Zorn as HC. Good job buddy."

Hold up, bro'.

What I criticized is the process that got Zorn the job.

But now that he's been here for two years, and has learned the job, why remove him?

The team responds to him: that's not a bad thing, ya' know.

Keep Lewis or C Miedt around to call plays.

BA and Zorn should have sitdown where Zorn's responsibilities are clear and defined.

It's kinda obvious D Smith or J Buges both need to be in the mix on the sideline to help make in game decisions.

Let Zorn serve as a manager: that's a necessity of the job as well.

But it all seems like a moot point.

Shanny looks like he is going to be in the house.

I see the Holiday Spirit has infested the joint.

I agree. If the offense continues to play well through the end of the year, keep Zorn but take the mike off his headset, no gametime decisions, period. Let the plays come from the booth, by next year Sherm L should know the running plays.

As a matter of fact, I believe that if the 'Skins win out (and SD should be resting by the end of the year) and finish at 7-9, I think Zorn could come back. Given that Shanny is making 7 million sitting at home, I think he might be willing to wait. Bruce Allen might MIGHT do such a thing. But, if ESPN is correct, Allen is who Shanahan hand-picked and he is doing that already, bye Dr. Zorn. (Actually, Zorn would be great in academia. I could see him lecturing on the differential aesthetics of hamartia between Sophocles and Euripides.)

Please stop with the "keep Zorn" talk!

Jim Zorn will not be the coach of the Washington Redskins next year.

RR, I'm assuming you are correct, however, C Casserly said he spoke with Bruce Allen on Friday, Allen said he will evaluate Zorn & staff and make the decision at the end of the year. Is Allen starting out his GM job with a bunch of lies right out of the box?? I hope not, or he's in for some heat.
