Portis ruled out; Haynesworth a gameday decision

Running back Clinton Portis (concussion) was officially ruled out of Sunday's game against the Dallas Cowboys, but he might accompany the team on the trip, Coach Jim Zorn said today after practice.

"Clinton is going to continue to be monitored, he's going to continue to be checked, but we're not going to play him this week," Zorn said.

Portis suffered a concussion early in a 31-17 loss in Week 9 to the Atlanta Falcons and sat out Washington's 27-17 victory in Week 10 over the Denver Broncos. Portis's vision "is just a little bit blurry," Zorn said. "It's just foggy enough for me to not trust. I want to see him practice.

"And I want to see him have those days where when he practices he doesn't have any residual problems or anything like that. And right now, he can't even practice, so we'll keep him out this week."

Defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth (ankle) remained in a walking boot but appeared to move around well. "Albert is coming along," Zorn said. "The swelling is starting to go down. We're going to continue to work him. I do believe that's going to be a game-time situation."

Said Haynesworth: "I'm all right. But I can't say nothing. They've got me on restriction."

Apparently, Haynesworth was joking about the team placing restrictions on him addressing the media. Some of Haynesworth's teammates said they would be surprised if he did not play.

As for tackle-guard Mike Williams, his ankle "is about the same," Zorn said. "He was out jogging around a little bit but not participating. He's still a little ginger on his foot. As he improves, we'll get him more and more involved, but right now he really couldn't be involved."

If Rock can play w/his head ringing like a bell, Albert should be able to play w/an ankle.

Where's the training staff with the dirt to rub on it?

Pick your favorite Dallas-Skins memory:

1) LaVar knocking Aikman into retirement.

2) The Weapon of Moss Destruction catching 2 long-bombs in the last 4 minutes and sticking it to Parcells as well.

3) Sean Taylor blowing up Patrick Crayton on 4th down to seal the win in above-mentioned game.

4) Blocked Cowboys kick and return by ST21 to put Skins in FG position and win the game on a Nick Novak 47-yarder.

5) Marion Barber averaging -1yd per rush at FedEx in 2007

1) No Danny, No! Love that one because the Redskins dominated physically and mentally.
2) Dexter knocks Danny into last week on a Saturday afternoon in RFK. Madden was scared the booth was going to collapse.
3) Darryl Grant pic 6 from the same game.
4) Kenny Houston stands up Walt Garrison to preserve 14-7 on MNF.
5) New Years Eve, 1972. Curt Knight kicks 5 FGs and the Redskins head off to California for the Superbowl.

Glad Portis is sitting. I hope -- hope -- it continues to be addition by subtraction and the offense is more functional than dysfunctional. Would be just another chapter in the bizarro season of losing Chris Samuels and Randy Thomas, hiring Sherm Lewis from the bingo parlor, bringing Levi Jones off the street, etc. I'll believe anything at this point.

How's about Ladell for another C-note and another TD, and maybe a couple of TDs to the kid WRs? Clock-eating, mouth-smashing, converting third downs, and scoring touchdowns.

In honor of Cowboys week, list your favorite cowbell song.

1.) Blue Oyster Cult - Don't Fear the Reaper.

2.) Nazareth - Hair of the Dog.

3.) Beastie Boys -Hey Ladies

4.) Grand Funk - We’re an American Band

5.) Tone Loc - Funky Cold Medina

6.) Sweet - Little Willy

7.) Rolling Stones - Honky Tonk Woman

8.) War - Low Rider

9.) Rage Against The Machine - Killing in the Name

10.) Mountain - Mississippi Queen

I gotta go with Hair of the dog by Nazareth here simply because of the shear amount of cowbell even though I think Killing in the name of is the superiror cowbell song. Had Rage kept up a consistent level of cowbell they would have won by a landslide.

AH gasses out every game, he still contributes but the either say a lot about the backups or little about what he is actually capable of doing if he was in shape..I think all players should be held accountable for the teams success, NO Practice NO PLAY rules should be enforced.

Everyone knew that about this guy going in ... before he was signed! He has yet to play 16 games. This is nothing new where he is concerned. It was to be expected.
But everyone including Snidely, and even that idiot who was raving about Orapko even looking at Oher, wanted "beasts". The offensive line needed help. How many damned "beasts" do you need? They sure as hell can't block for your quarterback or for your running back on offense. Last I looked with Haynesworth they went out and acquired 3. 2 through the draft and 1 huge signing.
Yeah, yeah Orapko and Carter lots of sacks. But is the defense better this year? Compared to last year? Suddenly running backs are having a field day feasting on this defense. Hoisting 4.5+ yard per carry games. They are getting burned consistently by good receivers. And the OL almost completely collapsed but somehow Vinnie found it within himself to finally, finally admit that BMW wasn't going to make it, at least not yet, and signed Levi Jones.
I am not impressed. NOT even a little ... feeling absolutely the same about the FO moves now as I did before the season started.

What good does it do to acquired Defensive "BEasts" when your weak OLine dictates a three and out Offense which in turns keeps the Defense on the field for an inordinate amount of time until they are ineffective and mostly "dead on their feet" by the 4th Qtr.

No problem with picking Orakpo. Was a smart pick. The problem is that the front office ignored the OL year after year and did it again in the 2009 draft. Its not 1 pick that has messed up the OL, you need to pick roughly 1 OL per year in the top 5 rounds. We've picked 2 in the top 5 rounds in the last 7 or so drafts.

I'm fine if we don't pick OL in round 1. but pick up an OL in round 2 and 3 and 4.

Article on the leading HC candidates for 2010

http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2009/writers/don_banks/11/19/coaches/index.html

• Gregg Williams, Saints defensive coordinator -- Like Zimmer in Cincinnati, the strength of Williams' candidacy is likely tied to how far the Saints season goes. He's earned plaudits for his work in turning around the New Orleans defense, but some within the league still question what happened to him in Washington, where he was Joe Gibbs' defensive coordinator and heir apparent, but was bypassed in favor of Jim Zorn when the job came open.

*******
just gotta laugh at this ... it was Dan Snyder and Vinny Cerrato doing the hiring. They hired Jim Zorn. Its not complicated, they are incompetent.

Get rid of Campbell, Portis, Rogers, Griffin, try to trade Carter for anything while his value is high. Consider waving Fat Albert for the savings in the future.

Mudman - I gotta say, I'm looking at it the same way. I wish they had gone O line as well, but at least they got a dominant player with Orakpo who can make plays.

I'd be more upset about taking Barnes with #3 instead of O line, but the two picks before us were the chargers taking Vasquez and the Steelers taking Urbik. Either of them would have been great, but there was a big drop off after that. Bad luck.

Dexter Manley was excited about the Denver victory and he is even more excited about the prospect that Washington can also whip Dallas's butt on Sunday.

He said that we should go at Dallas with the same attitude and personnel that we used against Denver.

And then he said we should definitely not use a certain running back that has a penchant for falling down in the hole.

I then went Wow, and started LOL. What an accurate observation of Clinton Portis.

I can't say enough about how much Tryon has improved; And I think he has more potential. Was he a 4th rounder?

I feel like he is quick enough to start.

Barnes has the size and strength to cover the slot as a nickel back. Will he develop like Tryon has, is the question. He'll get his opportunity eventually.

I wouldn't be surprised to see Hall and Tryon starting, with Barnes as the 3rd corner next year.

"Public Enemy - Fear Of A Black Planet is a classic."

Chuck D is a classic all by himself.

He presents about four rhyme styles on "Fear of a Black Planet" that eventually dominated rapping by the end of the 1990s.

To me, Chuck D was the best rapper by content and delivery seconded only by Biggie Smalls (and Jay-Z in "The Blueprint" in 2001).

And true to Chuck's style, he's not out trying to be famous like his sidekick Flava Flav is.

Chuck knows fame comes to the gifted.

And that those who chase it will never truly ever be famous or gifted.

Listen to "Black Steel in the Hour of Chaos" where Chuck equates black men escaping from prison to the entire race releasing itself from America' grip--only to be recaptured--before you disrespect his lyrics.

"Don't Believe the hype" is song that hates on how the media portrays young black men.

Then there's "She Watch Channel Zero" a song about black girls defining themselves by images in the media.

We won't mention "Who stole the soul?" (the cultural theft of black music) or "Pollywannacracka" (self-hate).

I'll stop there.

Neither Biggie, Jay-Z, or anyone else gets that deep in the cut when it comes to lyrics.

Rhyming about blunts and broads is one thing.

Rhyming about identity, race, and self-love is a whole other game by itself.

To get back to the Haynesworth discussion: how can anyone maintain that the guy is in good shape? He came in the season looked tired as heck in the 1st game and has maybe gone to 40% of practices. Taking weeks off at a time (say this week for example) kills your conditioning. The guy is good but he has taken it to heart the idea that he needs to be in the game on a high % of snaps so stays out there when gassed and just does very little on 1/2 the plays he is in. Also, how can he pull himself out as gassed on the first drive of the game last week? Surely even poor conditioning can hold up for the 1st 5 minutes of a game.

Albert has played well and he has been in on a lot of snaps, perhaps too many. Me, I'd use him on the 1st 3 snaps that an opponent has the ball on a possession, on some 3rd downs and in the red zone. Fewer plays and higher value.

Kind of liked this one when Sonny showed George HOW ITS REALLY done.

Washington, now 5-1 and a full game ahead of the 4-2 Cowboys, played perhaps its finest game in years. It was even better than last year's 20-16 conquest of the Cowboys in Dallas, as today the Redskins had to get off their backs to win.

Jurgensen, who earlier joined Johnny Unitas and John Brodie as the only members of the NFL's elusive 30,000-yard club, never flinched when he brought the offenseon the field after the Cowboys had grabbed their 20-7 advantage.

Jurgensen had caused Dallas grief so many times, and at 38, was clearly too old to change. He threw a pas to Jerry Smith, who made a nice move and gained 28 yards to the Redskin 48.

Four plays later, from the Cowboy 34, Brown took a pitchout. Following a devastating block by Charley Harraway, Brown took off around left end. At the 15, Walter Rock sliced down the remaining Cowboy, and Brown went into the end zone. There was 8:12 left in the third period when Knight's conversion sliced the Dallas lead to 20-14.

There was 10:40 left in the game when the Redskins began their game-winning touchdown drive. Jurgensen started off with a 26-yarder to Roy Jefferson. Then he threw to Brown, who ran 18 yards to the Cowboys' 36.

Brown gained three before Jurgensen fired a beauty between three Cowboy defenders, into Brown's midsection. When Brown fell, he was on the Cowboy 17, and RFK Stadium was berserk.

Harraway the blocker then became Harraway the runner. He slashed four yards to the 13. On the next play, he took a handoff, headed for the left corner of the end zone, leaving a trail for Cornell Green to follow.

For a man who is not supposed to be fast enough to run in the NFL, Harraway ran the 13 yards into the Cowboy end zone very fast.

Jurgensen was 11 of 16 for 180 yards, giving him 30,122 yards over a career beginning 16 years ago in Philadelphia, and soaring higher than ever today.

greatest Dallas moment ever - not even close for us old heads: New Years Eve, 1972. Charlie Taylor catches two TDs, and we beat the Cowgirls 26-3 to go to the team's first Super Bowl. I was 11, and my dad was a ticket-taker, and I got into every home game for free back then. I'd go early with him and his two buddies, who were ushers, hang out at the player's entrance and get autographs, then as game time approached, would just blend in with the season-ticket holders as they approached my dad's turnstile (Gate E) and give my dad a wink. Then I'd go hang out on the 35-yard line, up against the back wall of section 331 with the cops and other stadium staff and have the best time any 11-year old kid could ever wish for.

2nd greatest - watching Darryl Grant scoop up that interception and rumble about 10 yards to beat Dallas in the 82 NFC Championship game. My dad's buddy George Hindle (Rodmen Local 201) let us into that one for free.

What's funny is the "One, Two, Three, Four, Five" you hear the beginning of "Ten Crack Commandments" is the dude Chuck D himself... I really digged on the whole song, but I really f's with from number nine on:

"Number nine shoulda been number one to me
If you ain't gettin bags stay the f*** from police
If ni**az think you snitchin ain't tryin listen
They be sittin in your kitchen, waitin to start hittin
Number ten: a strong word called consignment
Strictly for live men, not for freshmen
If you ain't got the clientele say hell no
Cause they gon want they money rain sleet hail snow
Follow these rules you'll have mad bread to break up
If not, twenty-four years, on the wake up
Slug hit your temple, watch your frame shake up
Caretaker did your makeup, when you pass
Your girl f****d my man Jacob, heard in three weeks
she sniffed a whole half of cake up
Heard she suck a good d***, and can hook a steak up
Gotta go gotta go, more pasta bake up, word up..."

Best Dannyskins game. It began with the Cowboys down by 21 points.........................It ended with a play called "double dive" on third and two from Dallas's 24 yard line 4 minutes 9 seconds into overtime. It called for a fake handoff to running back Emmitt Smith, then a deep pass to wide receiver Rocket Ismail.

When the Redskins defensive backs went for the fake, Ismail streaked down the field, and Aikman got him the ball in full stride. The .....GAME.....WAS...... OVER be-atches....I WAS THERE!

The 1972 Championship game. Twas wonderful. Just crushed them. Mostly, I recall the defense just abusing one cowboy after another, play after play. One of the hardest hitting games I've ever seen.

When Charley Taylor blew past their CB in the 4th quarter, it was their backup CB -- because we'd already broken Charlie Waters arm on a punt return.

They should rebroadcast that game. Heck I'd watch it again, even on pay per view.

The Pack put the kibosh on the Boys by turning Miles Austin into Inches Austin. Especially if AH is out, there will be a lot of pressure on the secondary - on the personnel to perform and the coaches to come up with the right schemes. The Pack got a lights-out day from one of their DBs - an int and two forced fumbles. IMO it would be asking too much to think that one of the Skinz DBs could do this.

Best Quote of the Week:

"....F the Cowboys...."

Analysis: It's simple, direct.

It's a sex-act image coupled with an insult.

A pissed redskin is pitching and a submissive cowboy is receiving.

F the Cowboys!

It gives the speaker the feeling of throwing mud and venom at a media sacred cow: "America's Team"

Only outsiders would embrace defaming what ESPN and the NFL Network promote and cheerlead--the Dallas Cowboys.

They'll be so much analysis of the cowboys' issues this Sunday Morning you'll think they, and not the stillers, were the World Champs being assaulted by an up and coming team.

Folks will hate on and mock the redskins' chances like we're the homecoming chump team, the easy win that comes before the bg dance.

Well, I don't dance.

F the cowboys!!!

And all the football talking heads will take this game as a "...statement game..." where the lone star crew somehow disproves that it's nothing but a gang of over-rated choke artists.

Even if we win, they'll make it sound like somehow, we got lucky.

F!CK the Cowboys!
