Montgomery Listed as Questionable

Defensive tackle Anthony Montgomery (knee) was listed as questionable for Sunday's FedEx Field opener against the St. Louis Rams after sitting out practice again.

"I think he may be ready to go," Coach Jim Zorn said. "But he just has a little roughness on his knee."

Montgomery, who was not active in Week 1, said he planned to test his knee in a pregame workout for coaches.

"It'll probably come down to that," he said. "I don't think it's anything serious, but you don't want to take a chance on doing something early that could make it into a problem."

What I'm remembering is the berating of Grilliams for the performance Warrick Holdman

Yes, it's true that I was furious with him for a long, long time. His stubborn refusal to play man-up on people at times was mind-boggling and the whole Holdman thing was a complete and utter disaster. However, he did manage to pull it together and got the defense rolling somewhat in his last year and I thought our only hope, at the time, was for him to become Head Coach. I wasn't writing anything at the time so I don't know when or where my opinion of him came back up. All I know is that watching Blache and his motley crew of eunuchs is making me physically ill.

Spagnuolo blasts Rams with “Hail to the Redskins”

By Bill Coats, St. Louis Post-Dispatch

The players were expecting simulated crowd noise when the loudspeakers were turned on during practice Friday at Rams Park. Instead, they got heavy doses of “Hail to the Redskins,” the annoying Washington fight song. It was coach Steve Spagnuolo’s idea as the Rams prepared for Sunday’s game at FedEx Field.

chrislarry, so when the qb crosses the line of scrimmage the WRs are supposed to stop playing??

Posted by: pabrian2003

No you were assessing blame. Campbell is the ball primary protector. He should accept full blame for the play.

1. His lack of knowledge of where the LOS was unacceptable. The ball should NEVER have been thrown, thus no INT.

2. Building on the key breakdown in the play, crossing the LOS, JC should have tuck and ran which at WORST sets up third and short, if not 1st and 10.

3. Moss understood the ball should not have been thrown thus had lost his ball attention, a minor mistake really, b/c he was probably focused on blocking thinking, rightly, that JC should have ran.

4. JC decided to unleash the ball, thus putting it out to be intercepted under....less than even legal standards.

But sure keep heaping blame on one of the more talented players on the team, rather than the guy suppossed to make the key choices about where the balls goes and when/where he is allowed to make forward passes....

Look I root for JC. I blame Zorn mostly. But enough deflecting blame from JC when rightly deserved. He is a big boy he can take it.

AND if you wanna blame Moss, talk about his inability to get open consistently anymore, not some broken play botched by QB17.

Posted by: chrislarry | September 18, 2009 5:35 PM | Report abuse

I bet Pabrian would say JC gave 145% effort on that int, but Moss let him down.

IF YOU ARE ATTENDING THE RAMS GAME ON SUNDAY OR ANY OTHER HOME GAME THIS YEAR, PLEASE DO NOT BOTHER COMING IF YOU DO NO PLAN ON YELLING AS LOUD AS YOU POSSIBLY CAN ON EVERY SINGLE DEFENSIVE 3RD DOWN PLAY OF THE GAME.

I am sick and tired of Redskins fans treating the games at Fed Ex like it's a polo match. Make some god damn noise people! RFK was the loudest stadium in the league not just because of the way the stadium was built, but because the fans who went their made it a point to raise hell while we were on defense.

I'll be there Sunday, in my 47 jersey with CAPTAINCHAOS on the back. Come say what's up. I plan to have no voice by 4:30 Sunday afternoon. Every one of you who's going should also plan on losing your voice this sunday and every other sunday for the rest of the year.

I think this is going to be a low scoring game. Spags may not have the horses to dominate, but he knows the Redskins' offense. You can bet he's been game-planning this one since the schedule came out. Gotta have an early win to get people on board.

So JZ gotta do the unexpected. Call 6 consecutive passes to start the game. Medium routes, a bomb, TE seams. Dare them to come at you with a blitz and make them pay.

On the other side, I think 98 turns up the heat this game.

Does anybody else remember an incident about 10 years ago when kicker Brett Conway put white mice in Mike Sellers' locker and said that when Big Mike saw them "he screamed like a little girl?" If Portis is out now because Sellers was trying to jump out of the way of a garter snake, then I've got an entertaining contestant in mind for some post-season Animal Planet game show.

Agreed cl. At this point, JC has been a starter long enough to know the LOS and when to step up into the pocket.

Nobody questions his arm strength, but there are certainly questions about his decision making and of course his inability to scramble and slide properly.

How can you not know how to slide....red flag!

I guess what I don't understand is, if the Gints had double coverage safety over top on Moss all day, why don't you line DT on the other side of the field and have them both do burn routes on opposite sidelines off play-action.

Telegraph to Moss on a 5 step drop-back to move the safety over, then set and fire a deep bullet to DT on the other side of the field.

chris larry, so WRs are coached to lose 'ball attention' when the QB crosses the LOS? Can the WR even tell from his vantage point ? Or, are you just trying to prevent Moss from taking any criticism whatsoever, because of the 2 tds in Dallas? Or, are you just trying to be right?

Whatever you say you can't convince me that Moss isn't partly responsible for that pick.

I know silly me that players should know where the los is or be able to read the marker. And when they see the player scramble to their side and go significantly past LOS...and watch the play this was no big toe across the line he was several strides... they are coached to block their man...

I have no comment on that play except -- why didn't he just hold on to it and haul a$$.

He'd have picked up four or five easy and he had the sideline going for him too.

If JC rolls with a few keepers per game, the whole defense has to change their rules of engagement.

Campbell's INT was a bad play on his part. I still think if it was 2008, with the "first rule -- make no mistake" mentality, he would have run it with it. Picked up 4 yards or so and lived to run a play on 3rd and manageable.

Moss could have done more to prevent the INT and make it an INC, but the smart play was for Campbell to take the yards he could get and run out of bounds

Posted by: zcezcest1 | September 18, 2009 6:48 PM | Report abuse

it was a bad pass, no doubt, but moss has gotta finish the play and become the defender if necessary.

Can anyone deny that Portis is way more consistent then Moss and takes way more criticism?

But everything that happened after the end around is moot cause that was the worst call of week 1.

Portis' 1st touch was 34 yards, did any RB or offensive player top this start?

POSTED BY: RI

Why wasn't Antonio Pierce fined?

When Webster tackled the helmetless Moss, Pierce raced up behind him and assisted, piling on.

Bad enough Pierce didn't even get a slap on the wrist for his egregious "third man in" behavior, but every member of the Redskins offense except Moss and Samuels should be fined for not backing up their teammate,

Moss of course was the one piled onto, the rest of the Redskins did NOTHING. Eventually Samuels pulled someone off Moss.

Had this been the old Hogs, Corey Webster would have paid dearly, either then, or in a later play. That is, if Gary Clark didn't take case of business first.

pabrian, sorry I haven't kept up ... was this about defending Portis? I think its legit to expect Portis to put up 100 yards tomorrow. Also, he's way too guaranteed to cut, dead cap space or not.

Hey Pa Brian, I'm with you on Portis. I wanted to get rid of Randle El before the season. Now, I think they've found his natural position and I like it. As far as Campbell, I have become apathetic.

Just to let you all know (not that you care) my wife has become absolutely addicted to Redskins football. Before last year she had no idea what football was about. Didn't know offense from defense, didn't even know what a first down is. Now she's trying to figure a way out of a baby shower to see the game Sunday. I have been blessed people...blessed.

There have been a lot of complaints on this blog about Zorn's unimaginative play calling in Sunday's loss to the Giants at the Meadowlands. But he did the right thing. The Skins have lost like 8 in a row at the Meadowlands. There defintely is a lot of bad karma for them there. When the new stadium is up and running next year there may be a respite but I doubt it. The karma oozes out of the swamp there and a new building isn't going to make a difference. So Zorn did the best he could. Since losing was inevitable given how bad the karma was, he didn't trot out a lot of new offensive schemes. He just used a few throwaway gadgets that surprised nobody. He isn't going to show anybody his cards until he has a good chance of winning the pot. He did the same thing last year.

Ha, shows how much you know. I played her No Cure for Cancer and that other one (I love Leary) and although she was amused, not as much as I was.

i agreed with j reid that the CB went after that pick more agressively than Moss.

and then I noted that Moss never gets criticism and I think it is because of those 2 td's in dallas in 2005.

thats the long and short of it, it everyone's fault but Moss

Another great point from our friends at HOG HEAVEN BLOG.......

(The third down play at the 8 yard line in the third quarter on which Campbell was sacked by Justin Tuck, Moss completely gave up on route. He drew a safety as well as Terrell Thomas, made a cut to the inside, and kind of jogged over the middle while Campbell went down. I guarentee you Zorn didn't call that route, and Moss' complete lack of effort is very disheartening.)

NOW THAT's REPORTING!!!!

CLEGG

I am starting Campbell, ARE, and the skins D in my fantasy league this week. That is a risky move right there.

Was JC guilty for throwing that pick.....absolutely. Did Moss give up on the play.....absolutely. The CB made no move toward JC and stayed with his reciever so maybe he wasnt sure about the LOS. If you look at Moss he was in spectator mode and wasn't making a move to do jack....all around bad play with QB making a bad decision.

I can haz scrapple in Georgia! The local grocery carries Jenkins brand Scrapple along with liver mush & souse. Couldn't really tell much difference between scrapple & liver mush. Both were gray blocks. The souse looked like a block of pink vomit. Truly nauseating in appearance. I didn't want to frighten the children so I didn't buy any scrapple but will sneak some in the house soon & try it when no one is around.

You know, you've probably nailed three or four signs of addiction to something right there, Will.

God, RI has addicted you to scrapple and you haven't even tried it yet!

Further proof that RI is irrevocably bad for you.

Corey Webster also made an amazing play on the ball and pretty much dominated our #1 receiver all day. He won the battle on the talent front. Yeah it was a dumb play by JC, but only a special talent makes that int. Gotta recognize game when you see it.

Right On Barno 1 !! The Redskins need a home field advantage! Seems like they play an away game even when they are at home. Did you hear that crowd at the Giants game? The Redskins fans should make as much noise like the old days of RFK! Fix the top of Fed Ex stadium so the sound bounces off the top and back down on the field!! Very bad design for FEDEX Field! Who cam up with that design? He must root for the cowgirls!!

Jack Kent Cooke. And he doesn't root for anyone anymore.

Makes me wonder what Zorn's play-calling is listed as.

Posted by: chasgiffen | September 18, 2009 6:57 PM

Probably listed as medium.

"Makes me wonder what Zorn's play-calling is listed as."

It seemed to me that by formation variation, the use of the shotgun on second down, holding back on calling running plays excessively, integrating multiple players into the packages, Mr. Zorn did a very good job yesterday.

He's not the one who dropped two touchdown passes.

The thing is, once he gets this group into a groove, can it put 21-28 points up on the board in games when it has to?

The redskins offense is a work in progress.

Give Zorn some time.
