Kareem Moore ruled out for Sunday's game

Redskins Coach Mike Shanahan said safety Kareem Moore will not be able to play on Sunday, though he might be ready for the team's Week 3 game at the St. Louis Rams.

Moore, who had arthroscopic surgery Aug. 23, returned to the practice field this week -- he participated in agility drills Friday -- but Shanahan did not rule him out until Friday's practice was finished.

"We were hoping it'd be four weeks, and it's looking that way right now," Shanahan said. "That's the earliest we thought; latest was six weeks."

Shanahan said Albert Haynesworth, who sprained an ankle Wednesday, was able to practice Friday, which could mean that he's available on Sunday against the Houston Texans. Shanahan would provide no further details on Haynesworth's status.

What I think would be funny is to have Fat Al come in after a hard day of practice. He bumps into hessone in the lockerroom (we all know why hessone is in an all-male lockerroom, not that there's anything wrong with that). Fat Al than proceeds to dunk his super-sweaty man-junk all over the face of hessone.

Talk about the ultimate tea-bagging. And for some reason hessone enjoys it. Reminds him of Glenn Beck, Sarah Palin and tea-party rallies.

Anybody that doubted Trent Williams' performance against Demarcus Ware on Sunday really should take a look at this article:

http://www.footballoutsiders.com/word-muth/2010/word-muth

Absolutely outstanding analysis on Trent Williams' performance, and the offensive line as a whole.

As an excerpt:

"Williams did a lot of things very well. He was great at the second level, and in space. He seems to have a very a natural talent of locking onto defenders off the line of scrimmage, a skill that very few offensive lineman really have. The most obvious example of this was on the screen pass to Chris Cooley in the first quarter where he pulled outside, locked onto a safety and drove him straight to the sideline. For the most part, he also did a tremendous job in pass protection. He gave up a hit on an inside up-and-under move early in the game, and he gave up the sack to Ware in the second half, but the sack actually wasn't as bad of a play as it probably seemed. Donovan McNabb was in the shotgun, and then took a FULL five-step drop. His back foot hit at 11 yards deep in the backfield. That is really deep, and usually, as a quarterback, when you get that deep you either let the ball go as soon as the back foot hits, or you step up (or climb) in the pocket. On this play however, the Cowboys sent both linebackers inside and got a great push up the middle, collapsing the pocket. Because of that, McNabb couldn't step up and was a sitting duck for DeMarcus Ware. So, while Williams did get his hands knocked down and actually give up the sack, it wasn't a one-man effort from Ware.

Otherwise, Williams was very impressive in not only containing Ware, but doing so within the offensive scheme without needing any extra help, such as running back chips or protections where the tight end stayed in to double-team. He wasn't as effective run blocking against the Cowboys' down defensive linemen or Ware, but he certainly wasn't liability in that department by any means. He didn't really get beat in these situations, but he also didn't get any real movement, usually stalemating with a defender on the line of scrimmage. The false start on Washington's final drive was poor timing and a drive-killer, but luckily for Williams, another dumb penalty by a different player would overshadow it. Overall, Washington fans have to be really excited about what they saw."

Greg, if you didn't check out the full article, I highly recommend it. It's lengthy, but it's also the best analysis you'll find out there in terms of actual film breakdown of the game (at least the best that I've found).

Here's my favorite part of the article:

"Up next was the Trent Williams show featuring Chris Cooley. Cooley caught a tight end screen and ran for the first down. But the star of the play was Trent Williams, who pulled and blocked the safety all the way out of bounds. What makes the play so impressive is the fact that it is so hard for an offensive lineman to block defensive backs in open space like that. Usually, a defensive back will give a shoulder fake or simply hop around a big offensive tackle and leave him flailing at air. In fact, that scenario is so common that many offensive line coaches just teach their guys to cut in the open field with the idea being they have a better chance of hitting their defender -- and even if they miss, the defender will at least have to jump over them, or stop his feet to avoid them. But to be athletic enough to lock onto a safety like Williams did without holding is really remarkable."

This kid is going to be a stud.

Collinsworth is one of best on-air analysts in the game, but he rarely goes into the detail seen in that article. Anyway, that excerpt wasn't supposed to be a revelation, just an enthusiastic jolt for the fanbase.

However if you read the article, when he talks about the "Release" stretch plays (the plays that made Terrel Davis famous), how effective Jamaal Brown's arm techniques are, and how the offensive line executed a "Jet 3" slide protection on a particular blitz, you'll see the depth of analysis like nowhere else on the web.

Hey gang, regular poster on the Soccer Insider blog, but wanted to opine on the safety situation. Is anyone else concerned that we have 3 strong safeties and only 1 free safety that happens to be rather injury prone? My mouth was watering when the Seahawks let Jordan Babineux go, but they resigned him within 24 hours, presumably to avoid paying a roster bonus or something to that effect.

Nonetheless, Jordan is a backup there that would be an upgrade over Doughty back there in free and will provide us a lot of cover should Kareem go down again.

Also, Andre Carter's looking out of place in the 3-4 has made me long for the days of Chris Clemons. Coincidentally, he is a situational guy for the Seahawks. Between Lorenzo and Chris Clemons, I feel we'd be much better at OLB than with AC in the rotation.

Was wondering if any of you had similar thoughts.

Seems that we should be lobbying for a trade with the Seahawks for both of these guys and offering AC and perhaps Horton in the mix. Their 4-3 scheme would allow them to net out in the trade; and thus shouldn't be too hard to pull off.

Again, thoughts?

I like Collinsworth on the X and Os, but he's a bit of a hype machine otherwise.

I lost count of the # of times he used the adjective "champion-caliber" when referring to various aspects of the Cowgirls on Sunday. Typical empty-headed hype for a team that hasn't come close to sniffing a championship in almost 15 years.

Posted by: monk811 | September 17, 2010 3:32 PM | Report abuse

"Opine" is most definitely a word. I thought you guys were having a spirited IQ debate earlier?

Anyway fcmuenchweiler, I'm against trading Carter and Horton for Babineaux and Clemons. Clemons is no longer a young up-and-comer. Carter may not be an ideal 3-4 OLB, but he still has great value as a pass rusher, especially in nickel situations. With Chris Wilson and Lorenzo Alexander, I think we have more than enough depth at that position (at this time).

And Babineaux isn't anything to write home about. At best, he's "just a guy" back there. I wouldn't even be quick to call him an upgrade over Horton. Doughty has his issues, but he's still a presence on STs and is a veteran presence in the locker room and on the field.

Live with what he have. Moore will be starting again before you know it, and our depth will look fine once Doughty relegates to back-up duty.
