Gray: May the best scheme win

In their 27-17 loss in Week 7 to Philadelphia, the Redskins watched standout Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson score on a 67-yard reverse and a 57-yard touchdown pass. The Redskins don't want that to happen again.

"If you take a look, they did a great job right before halftime of getting a big touchdown, and game planning Carlos [Rogers] on a double cut," secondary coach Jerry Gray said. "Then on the reverse, it was one of those desire things, and I thought Jackson did an excellent job.

"If you take those two plays out, those plays hurt us, especially on defense. Good teams really don't make wholesale changes, and we're not going to make a wholesale change on defense, and I don't think they're going to make a [wholesale] change on offense. Whoever schemes the best is going to win those games."


Have a great day

The Redskins will practice this morning and we'll be back with updates, but all of us -- Jason Reid, Rick Maese, Barry Svrluga, Paul Tenorio and Cindy Boren -- want to take a second to wish you a very happy Thanksgiving. Getting to know you guys through this here blog has been a very cool thing and we're all thankful that you continue to join us. -- CB

RFK-ROX; Week 14 vs the Bears 2007.

Starting QB Jason Campbell (10/16 for 100 yards) left the game in the second quarter with a dislocated left knee cap.
After a scoreless first quarter, the Redskins scored first as QB Todd Collins completed a 21-yard TD pass to TE Todd Yoder for the only score of the second quarter. Redskins went on to win this game. Although Campbell started the game it was Collin that got the win.

That gives Campbell 18 wins and not 19.

Happy Thanksgiving, everybody!

Hip, hip, hooray for family, turkey, and pumpkin pie!

Hail to the native Americans who went against their better interests and didn't let the Pilgrims starve. In their honor I'm making Indian pudding today.

hessone, pro football reference dot com, my go-to source for stats (which I've always taken to be reliable) says Campbell's career QB win-loss record is 16-20. This is the team's record in games Campbell started, which I think is how this QB W-L stat is calculated. They count 13 games in that 2007 season in his record, which includes the Chicago start.

Redskins practice is underway. Maese tweets that Albert Haynesworth is not in uniform but is doing work on the sideline. Rick did not see H.B. Blades or DeAngelo Hall in the portion of practice we were allowed to watch, but that may mean nothing. It's very very foggy here.

"Redskins practice is underway."

Football practice on Thanksgiving?

What a bunch of turkeys!

(pun--bad and all--intended)

Happy Thanksgiving to all.

As a Terp, like the posts about the re-creation of the Terps line from a few years ago. Note that Crummey, Heyer and Heyer were undrafted FAs (as was Dane Randolph). Like it or not, Heyer has performed at a level to be expected of an undrafted FA lineman - has played both LT and RT, and was a servicable RT at that. Edwin Williams we'll find out more about, but he was kept on the active roster as a back-up center (what-do-they-do-if Rabach gets injured????). Crummey started a few games for the Bengals last year (who were terrible last year) and is an NFL fringe player right now. However, given more experience could become an asset to a team as a depth OLineman. Gaither is a stud for b-more and will command serious money.

Like the posts about the hungry guys making it; I think Heyer and Edwin Williams will be with the team for quite a whil because they will provide quality depth and they came cheap. That said, I think the next coach/GM/$nyder lackey should have the sense to realize that smash-mouth is the ONLY way to win in the NFC East consistently and the Redskins have most of the personnel to win that way. love to see Terps on the Skins, but want to see the Skins win. When you get cheap guys that can play, I think you keep them for depth purposes. Agree with most that OL should be the focus of these next few drafts (along with a SS and ML).

And for all the talk that it takes recievers time to develop - a LOT OF THE GREATS came in and set the league on fire as rookies. I think that b/w kelly & thomas we have a long-term solution at #2 WR but still do not have a replacement for Moss...and its not that great a solution at #2 WR.

Happy Thanksgiving and regards to all -

Check the game logs for each season from 2006 to 2009 and you will find my source for the information at this website.

2009: 3 - 7
2008: 8 - 8
2007: 5*- 7
2006: 2 - 5
Total:18 - 27**

* Started the Bears game and was injured and left the game with NO SCORE. Collins replaced Campbell and gets the win. You can start a game in NFL but not get the win.
** Campbell has started 46 games in his carrer. 16+20=36. You left some games out along the way.
Anyway you look at it, Campbell has had more than enough time to develop into the QB he's going to be.

hessone, it ain't baseball where stats are a holy thing and there is a specific logic for determining which pitcher gets each W or L.

It seems like your source measures "quarterback record" differently than my source. No big whoop.

I thought this would be the year Soup turned the corner and pushed his career W-L record well over .500 no matter how you were counting. Sadly for all of us, that has not been the case.

NateinthePDX,

Agree,
The 21st century can be confusing with all of the data available. Wish things would have worked out for Campbell. He's a nice guy.
