LaRon Landry limited in practice

Strong safety LaRon Landry (Achilles) was listed on Thursday's injury report as limited in practice.

Tight end Chris Cooley also was limited in his return to practice after suffering a concussion in the Week 6 loss to the Indianapolis Colts. Cooley is expected to play Sunday against the Chicago Bears.

Cornerback DeAngelo Hall (back) participated fully in practice for the second consecutive day. Hall has been slowed by back pain for the past month.

You could say its his Achilles Heel if you will.

Is Hall's back pain related to the foot he got upside his butt for running his mouth again?

LaRon Landry limited in practice


This is the beginning of the time of year when injuries begin separating the teams with solid depth from those where a well paid starter is backed up by journey types and nobodies.

And we all know which column the redskins are in that accounting.

Long term, you have to hope suitable, ready backups are found to fill in once the midseason injury kick in, and begin affecting play on the field.

The redskin do have okay players backing up LL.

But not so much in other areas, I'd say.

Looks like I can go and be famous:

Want to be in a movie with Pacino, Sandler?

We are looking for hundreds of upscale looking males and females of all ages and ethnicities. No experience needed.


I'll market myself as a 'two-fer':

In my regular clothes, I'm an upscale 'ethnic male'.

If I add a wig and false breasts, high heels, shave, add booty padding, I'm an upscale 'ethnic female'.

I'll tell them I'm Michelle ObamaMoe.

And the winning thing is they only have to give me one paycheck.

How can I lose?

Cutler has been sacked 27 times this year so let's not pull a "Blache" by only rushing 3 and dropping 8 into coverage on every play. Cutler will have all day to scan the field. Sometimes the skins will do the opposite of what they should be doing to attack the opponents weakness.

The following players are no longer/never have been redskins and should be removed:

Michael Vick (how are mah dawg's ribs?)

Devin Thomas (I hear he's modeling failure now)

Willie Parker (his time as a redskin went by fast--he sure didn't)

Larry Johnson (his wasn't all that big from what I saw)

Free agency (when did he play for us?)

Jason Campbell (how's that 'I won't be McNabb's back up' talk sounding now?)

Look, you asked a question. I gave you some possibilities. Then you started with the name-calling because you don't know how to have a discussion. You think I need to "Learn the game"? You need to find out about the Redskins. This is from John Keim:

"Haynesworth would have been hurt by facing a no-huddle; opponents have talked about that in the past....Haynesworth, if he knows the game plan and his mind is right, would have helped. But that’s the problem; he still is learning the defense and for him to get the game plan a day later than others, I’m not confident he would have had it down. And in this defense, you must adhere to your role and know which gap you must hit. If not, huge plays follow."

That's stretching it a little don't you think? Not know the game plan is very differnet from not knowing the playbook. Also let's take a look at the playing time of the dline from the Colts game shall we

DEFENSE (68 snaps)
DL: Vonnie Holliday 36, Jeremy Jarmon 17, Kedric Golston 15, Phillip Daniels 4, Adam Carriker 4, Ma’ake Kemoetau 4.

Notice how both Holliday and Jarmon got the most playing time. Both a reserves. Both are under 290 lbs. Golston at 300 lbs played less than a quarter of the snaps. Are we to assume then that all the Dline starters are not in condition since they only played a combine 23 out of 204 snaps (68 defensive snaps)?

Posted by: TWISI | October 21, 2010 10:48 PM

I posted this very statistic on Monday. They played the majority of the game in Nickel and they had an intricate gameplan that was installed on Wed. AH wasn't here, and was inactive.

Bottomline. AH couldn't have done any worse and yet we were 4 dropped INTs, Dhall not covering anyone, and a missed FG away from possibly beating the BEST regular season team of the last 10 YRs.

I hated it. A DLman loses all of his leverage by standing up. Manning also gashed us as we danced around pre snap and they ran the ball thru holes that you and I could have gone over a hundy.

All that said, We should have won.

Posted by: NateinthePDX | October 21, 2010 11:15 PM | Report abuse

NateinthePDX I think Haslett will get back to more of the basic 3-4 defense. He'll probably have the same amount of Dlmen active as he did in Philly. I'd think Haynesworth would get about 30-40 snaps.

Nate-

I'll be disappointed if AH doesn't play at least 25 plays. The Bears OL is worse than ours from last year. I would line him up between C - Olin Kreutz and RG - Edwin Williams and tell him to do what he does best.

I'm expecting a HUGE day from our D and and a W.

Skins 27
Bears 13

Bears scoring their only TD on a Hester punt return to surpass BMitch's record of 13 career TDs on returns.

I'd love to see a breakout game from Haynesworth, which would mean Haslett (and Shanny) give him an opportunity.

Reminds me of that delightful comic Groo... every time a melee erupted, our hero would say something like "Now Groo does what Groo does best!" and leap into the fray. I kind of want Albert to have his Groo moment.

You and I both. Maybe Haslett would have been better running just a base 3-4 formation and then doing all kinds of stuff from that. Manning would have had nothing to read.

I think against the Bears you run an eight man front and dare Cutler to throw.

If Landry is truly hurt so bad that he is kept out of the game - which I doubt they will do - who plays in his place? Horton? Doughty's the backup at free safety, right? Horton hasn't impressed this year and I don't think it would be a good thing for Landry to be out. The shaky pass coverage unit gets shakier with Horton in there...

Quick, name one past his prime QB that won a Super Bowl. Don't say Jim Plunkett, who hit his prime late and won 2. I said PAST THEIR PRIME.

Posted by: morrisday1 | October 21, 2010 7:55 PM

I know this is an old post, but I can't let this foolishness slide.

Not only have the Redskins won all 3 of their SBs with QBs over the age of 30, but if you're taking the idiotic stance that a 33 year-old QB is "past their prime", then you just tanked your own argument:

Bart Starr (33 and 34), Len Dawson (34), Johnny Unitas (37), Roger Staubach (35), Jim Plunkett (33 and 36), Joe Theismann (33), Joe Montana (32 and 33), Steve Young (33), and Brad Johnson (34).

And the trump card: John Elway (37 and 38)...with the very coach we employ right now.

Go back and look at the Elway/McNabb comparison at comparable stages of their careers. The similarities are stunning...

Keim's Notes and Analysis:

1. Tight end Chris Cooley participated in practice, though he was listed as having done limited work, and said he feels fine. Cooley suffered a mild concussion in Sunday’s loss to the Colts. But he said he felt symptom-free by Monday afternoon.

2. Really, there’s no question about who will play Sunday. Clinton Portis is obviously out, but all the other questionable guys – LB Rocky McIntosh and DL Albert Haynesworth -- will play.

3. Left tackle Trent Williams gets Julius Peppers on Sunday, but there’s little doubt the Bears will also put him on the left side. Heck, they do it all the time. But that’s also where the mismatch is with Jammal Brown. The only thing I wonder is that with Williams, Peppers likely would get more one-on-one matchups whereas against Brown, he’d probably face two blockers more often than not.

4. Williams on Peppers: “He’s a huge edge guy. He has long arms. You can have him a few [feet] away from the quarterback and he still swipes the ball out of his hands. That will be a huge challenge for me.”

5. For what it’s worth, Williams said Dwight Freeney is the best player he’s faced so far. “He has everything you need to be an effective pass rusher,” Williams said.

6. Pretty big praise by Redskins coach Mike Shanahan on Lorenzo Alexander, particularly his performance on special teams. “He’s the best special teams player I’ve been around. He can run, he’s a big guy, he’s got a great attitude. He wants to make every play and he doesn’t want to come out. If he’s not in the Pro Bowl on special teams, I don’t know who would be.”

7. Jim Haslett on Carlos Rogers’ hands: “He’s done a great job covering in the slot. He’s hard to throw over. He just has to concentrate more in the game. …It’s more of a mental thing than anything else because he can do it. He’s having a good year anyway, but turnovers are the main thing in this league.”

8. The Redskins have Rogers catch passes off the Jugs machine every day. This is not the first season he’s done that, so who knows if it will help. I will say, Rogers deals with it pretty well. He can chuckle about it – a few days later of course. Told him my son’s coach called him Carlos Rogers after my son dropped an interception in practice. Rogers laughed. The guy laughs at pretty much anything. It’s certainly not that he doesn’t care, but he’s also very comfortable knowing how well he’s playing and that guys aren’t getting open that much against him.

9. Mike Shanahan’s take on it: “I think you joke about it, kind of take the pressure off him.” Rogers made a catch in practice similar to the one he dropped in the game and everyone laughed.

10. By the way, Haslett said Rams safety O.J. Atogwe had bad hands for his first couple years in the NFL. There is a difference, though, because Rogers is in his sixth year and has only seven picks. As DeAngelo Hall said, “Some people can catch; some people can’t.”

more...

Posted by: brownwood26 | October 22, 2010 5:59 AM | Report abuse

continued...

11. So Hall and Haslett supposedly had a heated exchange? Most, if not all, players will tell you that happens quite a bit. One player said “four times a day.” Another said “all the time.” When you have a building full of competitive people in a tense atmosphere, voices get raised. Period.

12. My guess is that Hall is frustrated with his performance. He’s not playing well so now we hear that ... it’s the scheme ... or his back is bothering him more. Maybe he’s just not playing well. Certainly, Rogers is playing better. Rogers hasn’t come up with interceptions, but he’s also not getting beaten in crucial situations.

13. Ex-Redskin Edwin Williams is starting at right guard for Chicago. To which the Redskin d-linemen say: good. Williams always looked fairly solid in one-on-one situations because he’s strong and could anchor well. But it was in team drills that things changed. I can’t imagine that the Bears’ line has a good day.

14. Think I said this Wednesday, but it’s still something that stood out to me today. When asked about Jay Cutler, the first thing Mike Shanahan did was bring up the fact that he had only been sacked 11 times in 616 throws one season in Denver. Hmmm, wonder what he was really saying. Here’s my translation: “Mike Martz is killing that kid.”

15. Haslett on why Haynesworth didn’t play vs. the Colts: (For the record, I buy their reasoning. Just because Haynesworth “knows” the Colts because he’d played so much against them was somewhat meaningless. He needs to know the game plan and how he fits.) “You’re going out there with the unknown,” Haslett said, “how long can he go? Maybe he doesn’t know what we’re doing.”
