Rinehart Questionable for Sunday

The Redskins have added guard Chad Rinehart (shoulder) to their injury report and listed him as questionable for Sunday's game against the Kansas City Chiefs at FedEx Field.

With backup guard-center Will Mongomery scheduled to start at right guard, rookie center-guard Edwin Williams could be active this week. The Redskins plan to bring in linemen to audition for the practice squad, Coach Jim Zorn said.

Who didn't see this coming from the opening day of camp? It still baffles me how any causal fan or outside observer could have predicted these O-Line problems, but none of the Skins front office brain trusts??????

Hopefully, Montgomery, Williams, & Rhino will be the start of quality depth players on the OL for the skins. It'll be great if one can be a good starter. Sadly, I've been looking at potential draft & FA prospects, and the good news is that the skins can rebuild the line in short order if they make that a priority.

Lets hope so, the last time the team was this down Snyder got Gibbs to come back. Hopefully he will get a good GM and let him build the team and hire the coach. The owner can be involved but he has to know his place. Snyder needs to worry about the money and things like that he does not need to worry about finding players thats a GM's job.

Popeyes Chicken and Biscuits. Riddle me this: how could someone name their wing joint after a dude who is a spinch-eating vegan?

Uncapped year. Buy a whole new line. That's the plan now, right?

Oh, and excuse me but: "The Redskins plan to bring in linemen to audition for the practice squad, Coach Jim Zorn said." Um... hey - couldn't we have done that _this week_? The brain trust just thought of this on Saturday?

Hogs weather for game on Sunday. All they need now is to give away seat cushions at the entrance gate!

Sign Alex Boone off the 49ers practice squad. We should have drafted him anyway.

He was starting left tackle for Ohio State for a couple of years and was projected to be an early first day pick until he got stupid with a bottle on got arrested pretty badly (got tazed by the cops...)

The guy is 6'7" 330. Maybe he can help us at RT. Imagine what Buges could do with a guy like that. Can't be worse than Heyer...

1991 NFC playoff game, Redskins 24, Falcons 7, Jan. 4, 1991: The Redskins sprinted through the regular season by going 14-2 and hardly breaking a sweat. With their eyes on a third Super Bowl championship, the playoffs began in a cold, driving rainstorm. Amid the mud and ice, the Redskins forced six turnovers and dominated the Falcons to advance to the NFC championship game. When running back Gerald Riggs scored his second touchdown to clinch the victory, fans began twirling their yellow, plastic give-away seat cushions toward the field. Hundreds of them swirled from every corner of the stadium and they eventually covered the lower stands and corners of the playing field. "It was just an amazing sight," tackle Jim Lachey said.

Joe Bugel is past his that old man.

Geez...why do people keep wanting assistants from the 80s has changed and Buges is NOT getting it done.

Fire Bugel!!

why is bugal getting a free pass in this mess? it's his job to get these NFL linemen ready to play, backups or not.

He IS getting them ready to play -- in the OC/HC's scheme. That's what's not working.

that fits the profile... when you don't draft a lineman in the first round for 10 years, it figures you need to pull people off the street for auditions...

why don't they just go and sign the o-line at DeMatha... at least we know those guys have some potential... just ask the Westbrook brothers.

Joe Bugel gets a pass because he is a good coach who has coached 4 olines to superbowls...3 winners.

he knows what he is doing... he might be the only one who knows what he's doing.

fact is, he can't make a silk hat out of a sows ear... vinnie is the problem.

Do go to Reid's discussion of the spring draft later on this web to read a perfectly accurate prediction of what would happen to the offensive line.

Posted by: jhough1 | October 17, 2009 11:52 PM | Report abuse

Before you talk about Joe Bugel being the problem you must talk about:
1) Jason Campbell
2) the Offensive co-ordinator
3) the head coach
4) Cerrato
5) the players he has to get ready to play.

In that order.

Depth on the o-line is a myth. Everyone out there is acting like every other team in the NFL has 5 other starters on the O-line stashed away, which simply is not true. If people think it was different in the past here I point out to a couple of situations, Super Bowl 17, Mark May did not play. Some guy named Dean started at right guard and the Redskins didn't run right all night and he was a turnstile all night. I can't remember the year but we lost to the Bears in the playoffs at RFK, a couple of the hogs got injured and their backups were terrible, we could not run or pass.
Now I will not argue that there are better players sitting on the street right now i.e. John Runyon and Levi Jones and maybe the Skins could have done a better job anticipating Randy Thomas going down to injury but let's stop crushing Vinny for something no other NFL team has, and crush him for all the other real issues he has screwed up lol.

I hope that as we all go through this pathetic season Snyder finally realizes he needs a true GM... I don't care if Vinnie stays in some capacity, but don't let him help with personnel decisions and we also need a coach that can take control of the locker-room.
