Jeremy Jarmon plays for the first time this season

With defensive lineman Albert Haynesworth inactive following the death of his half-brother last week, second-year defensive end Jeremy Jarmon was active for the first time this season.

Jarmon played in 11 games a year ago before tearing his right anterior cruciate ligament Nov. 29 at Philadelphia, an injury that hampered him throughout the offseason. He then toggled between outside linebacker and defensive end, losing and then gaining weight to fit each position.

"You come off an injury like that, it's not only the knee itself, but it's the surrounding muscles and things like that," Jarmon said. "I have to get it as strong as the muscles on my left side. It's one of the big things I've been working on and using the extra time as I've been [inactive] those first few weekends."

Jarmon appeared only briefly Sunday, and was not credited with a tackle. He does, though, feel like it was a positive step in his return.

"It's definitely had its ups and downs and going through camp and things like that was tough," Jarmon said. "But I felt like Coach Shanahan and his staff did a great job of taking care of me through camp and gave me an opportunity."

He pressured Rodgers on the INT, right?

Wow. What a win. I missed a lot of the game today, but I did see the end. Oddly enough, about 10 seconds before Landry got his pick I made the following comment to my brother in law: "We could really use a pick right now." Landry delivered.

Paging 10peterbilt and all the other Dallas dbags...congrats on that awesome 1-3 start. Hey, don't worry, I'm sure you guys will make up the ground in December...that's your best month right?

A Redskins win and a Cowboys loss.....Doesn't get any better than that.

It did get better -- Norv lost too.

Better still - Norv lost to Campbell.

Jarmon looked good last year as a 273 pound DE.

In the hybrid defense the Redskins are running, one wonders if he can't be effective taking over the role that Vonnie Holliday currently has of lining up at both DE and DT on passing downs when the team moves to a 2-5?

I like Jarmon's work ethic and his attitude and he showed last year he has the athletic ability and instincts to play in the NFL.

I would hate to see him leave Washington as a #3 pick and go somewhere else and be a stand out player in a 4-3.
