Moss, Webster Fined $5,000 Apiece

Remember the Week 1 altercation between wide receiver Santana Moss and New York Giants cornerback Corey Webster?

Well, Moss and Webster each were fined $5,000 for their conduct, a league source texted today. Specifically, the fines were the result of "unnecessary roughness - striking [an] opponent in the head area."

Well after a play was over early in the second quarter, Moss and Webster mixed it up inside the 10-yard line and had to be separated as they continued to fight while falling in the end zone. Moss took exception to Webster striking him in a defenseless position after his helmet came off while Moss blocked for Clinton Portis on a running play.

I didn't mention this in the game story, but looking back now, Webster really played a great game against Moss. In fairness to Moss, who had only two catches for six yards, the Giants rolled a safety to his side to help Webster.

Nonetheless, Webster was strong in coverage. On the Redskins' next possession after the fight, Webster was much more aggressive than Moss in going after a ball quarterback Jason Campbell intended for Moss.

Webster out-muscled Moss along the right sideline and came up with an impressive interception. Although the ball was behind Moss, Webster made a great play.

That was some weird shti. Looked like Reid put a double post move, it had a couple comments, gone....

Oh well, here's what I posted on Mr Reid's lame double-move:

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.

If they Giants rolled a safety to Moss's side, doesn't that mean someone else is single-covered? Like, say, Malcolm Kelly. Does this mean a) Malcolm Kelly can't beat single coverage; or b) Jason Campbell can't read single coverage quick enough to throw to Kelly.

b Jason Campbell can't read single coverage quick enough to throw to Kelly.

Moss didn't try to outmuscle Webster for the ball because he didn't think JC would be dumb enough to throw it there (especially AFTER he was already past the LoS)

Delonte West arrested on weapons charges:

"That prompted the officer to call for backup, and investigators found that West was actually carrying three guns: a Beretta 9mm in his waistband, a Ruger .357 strapped to his leg and a shotgun in a guitar case slung over his back, said Maj. Andy Ellis, a spokesman for the Prince George's County Police Department."

Three guns! What was he doing?

I love the idea of stuffing a hand-gun in your waist-band. Thats just BRILLIANT...apparently West lives in a cave and has never heard of Plax....hopefully the safety was on....ufb...

"PFT has learned that in the rush to get away from the snake that somehow got loose in the Redskins locker room, Mike Sellers fell into the leg of Clinton Portis. Portis was said to have screamed out in pain, and was unable to put any weight on the leg. The team was trying to cover up the incident, and was scheduling an MRI for later this evening. Portis was said to have felt something 'snap' in his knee"

that's right Jreid, although many fans blame Campbell, Moss didnt go after that ball like he needed to.

But Moss never gets any criticism because he scored 2 tds in Dallas in 2005.

SORRY TO DO THIS IN CAPS, BUT I WANT EVERYONE'S ATTENTION FOR A SECOND:

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.

That is all.

dcsween: Haven't we learned already? We tried hiring an ex Cowboy as coach, you remember, a guy named Norv Turner??

Posted by: Veretax | September 18, 2009 3:56 PM

I admit that Aikman hasn't coached, but Norv never played pro ball. Aikman is one time All-Pro, three Super Bowls, one Super Bowl MVP, and Hall of Fame. I'm not saying he'd be the silver bullet, but the guy (1) likes the Skins, implicitly giving props to The Owner, (2) is not a moron when it comes to calling a game (compared to his moronic small hands side kick, Joe Buck), and (3) it would rub salt in Jerrah Jones eyes (not sure what that means). My point is that, as long as THIS Owner is here, it will be very very very difficult to find a guy who would have the chops both to manage a football team and manage The Owner.

[Don't get me wrong, I like Zorn and would prefer he get 4-5 years ... that's what grown up teams do, keep a coach, develop some stability, the start winning games ... Cowher made it to the Super Bowl once, after 14 years as HC, and made it to the AFC conference championship one additional time. I just don't think this Owner, or the fans up here, have the patience it takes to actually get to sustained success.]

good point Kennybeatrizz

Last "check down" in such a situation executed by a Redskins QB was the second preseason game where Collins hit Kelly. Collins found Kelly in his 3rd Read for 13 yards and a first.
JC is a one read QB.. no progressions. Straight on FOX footages (from behind the defense) of JC coming out of a snap last week showed him following his primary receiver throughout his drop back.. Dont think the opposing DBs dont know this.... Thats why they play Zone on JC all the time.. They have time to recover from any separation..
Half of JC's completions last week were worthless... 5 were in the last 2 minutes (Skins behind by 2 scores) when the Gints left the middle open to run out the clock and another 4 completions were earlier in the game that were short of the 1st down marker. Yet, JC supporters will point to his completion percentage as being close to Eli.. regardless of when the completions are made and if they even count towards moving the ball.
+++++++++++++++++++++++


"b) Jason Campbell can't read single coverage quick enough to throw to Kelly."

If they Giants rolled a safety to Moss's side, doesn't that mean someone else is single-covered? Like, say, Malcolm Kelly. Does this mean a) Malcolm Kelly can't beat single coverage; or b) Jason Campbell can't read single coverage quick enough to throw to Kelly.

And, yes, this is why FedEx field does not feel like RFK. And unless you got 2 billion dollars to give Dan a nice 500Mil profit and buy him out.. Its pretty much what we will see for the next 40 years.
