Redskins saw no spitting during Eagles game

By Barry Svrluga

Redskins players said Wednesday that they didn't see LaRon Landry spit at Eagles Center Mike McGlynn during Monday night's game, a claim that the NFL is investigating.

"They were talking about it during the game, trying to talk to the refs, saying something about it," cornerback DeAngelo Hall said Wednesday. "But I never saw it, and I don't think nobody else saw it.

"That's the crazy part. I'm asking cats out there, like, 'Did you see it?' They were like, 'No, but that's what they said.' But they didn't see it. Nobody saw it."

Landry, who did not comment during the Redskins' open locker room period Wednesday morning, adamantly denied the charge after the game, saying he would never be near the center on extra points or other plays.

Reports out of Philadelphia also indicated that Hall and Landry were taunting Eagles receiver DeSean Jackson during warm-ups before the 59-28 loss, and that those taunts led to a pre-game scuffle. Hall, though, said he was trying to break up the gathering.

"I got there late," he said. "Trying to be a peace-maker."

Should Landry tone down his celebrations and trash talk? Let us know your opinion in the Tailgate Zone.

I will be the FIRST to say that LL never go close enough to Jackson or any other Eagle WR for that matter to spit in their face!~

Redskins Nation, I told you so.

Shanahan is not the man for the job and Snyder is further ruining this team. As I said this summer, the correct approach is to rebuild with youth and take your lumps along the way. Instead, the Redskins have squandered draft picks on declining players and have one of the highest payrolls and oldest teams in the league. Monday night showed the folly of the current approach.

The Redskins have been stealing all year and this time they were caught red-handed and b!tch-slapped in front the entire country before being let off with a warning.

It's going to continue until Snyder gets more serious about winning instead of making $$$.

It never fails. Even when Snyder finally brings in a credible GM, Bruce Allen, the haters still blame Snyder for the losses.

It's been 9 games. They're 4-5. Relax.

So you're saying that a 45 point drubbing in which we scored our one and ONLY touchdown in garbage time in the 4th quarter isn't as bad as a 31 point drubbing in which we scored 28 points (which, btw is our highest scoring output of the season thus far)......

This isn't the BCS. The amount you lose (or win) by means nothing at the end of the season. It's just W's and L's.

As I pointed out yesterday, a 10-6 (1985) Skins team got shellacked by the Cowboys 44-14, and in fact ALSO got pasted that same year, 45-10, by the then-awesome Bears.

Of course, we didn't live in the Intertube era back then; I suppose if we had people would have been calling Darrell Green a "bum" and "garbage" and saying he should be cut.

The knee-jerk reactions of some contemporary sports fans is fascinating to witness. One week they're loving Laron Landry, the next week he's trash.

There's no perspective.

I've had enough of this garbage. This organization has from the top down has made all the changes that the vast majority of us wanted. A GM with experience, a proven HC, reaching out to the players of the golden years, improving the game day experience.

If you want to focus on Snyder, go ahead...but go ahead and root for another team, because if you aren't under 45, you'll be dead in all likelihood before you'll be happy with the Redskins again. Snyder isn't going anywhere. DEAL WITH IT. He's made major changes. LET GO OF YOUR BITTERNESS.

Either find a way to reconcile your issues with the owner, or root for someone else to spite him.

This "halfway" garbage where people claim to be fans but run around rubbing it in other fans faces when they lose... as if it's more important to reinforce their hatred of the owner than to win, is old, boring, annoying as heck, and as of recently ENTIRELY UNJUSTIFIED.

Get on board and behind them, or find another organization or owner that you respect, Sammy.

Apparently, Shanahan was supposed to sprinkle a little WCO and 3-4 defense fairy dust around and the Redskins were to become instant Super Bowl champs. Now that we see the fairy tale for what it is, let's cut the entire roster and build a Super Bowl champ with undrafted free agents. We'll run the owner out of town because how stupid could he be for doing everything in his power to build a better football team AND trying to make a buck in this pathetic capitalistic country. While we are at it, we'll build a new stadium on the same ground where RFK stands because moving to Maryland was a big mistake. Finally, we'll package all of the fans in a big shipping container and send them to Afghanistan while we replace them with less whinier versions made in China.

Just because you "told us so" doesn't mean you're right. I think Shanny is a good coach and trust his judgement.

Now 3-4 years from now if this is still going on then I might agree with you but not after a half of a season.

It's going to take a few seasons to fix the mess that Vinny has left us with. Chill dude.

You don't deserve this handle. They gave up two mid round picks - likely a third this yr and fourth next - for a franchise QB. Now I'm the first to admit he's underachieved so far. But you cannot fault the team for making that move. we ARE rebuilding - we used our 1st rd pick on a left tackle - if that doesn't scream "rebuilding", I don't know what does. We have probably found our replacement for Portis in Torain. We have a dynamic rookie return man. We have a rookie WR who leads the league in yards/catch- OK he's 27 but that's still young, especially since he doesn't have 5 yrs of NFL poundings. We have a 24 yr old elite pass rusher, an elite 26 yr old safety. We drafted some projects on both lines. And we cut a lot of the fat from the last regime (ARE, Thomas, etc). You can slam Snyder all you please, but the guy wants to win. You can say what you will about Shanny and Allen, but they ARE taking this team in a different direction. It's so funny how people are on the Super Bowl bandwagon one day and then "we suck", "same old Skins" the next. Get a grip - we're an average team with holes to fix but if you think it's business as usual and we are no better than we were with Cerrato and Zorn, you are clueless.

this is probably the most upsetting non-playoff loss I can recall since the Bills game in '07 after 21 had just passed away and Gibbs...well, you remember. Coupled with the fact I had a buddy fly in from Phoenix and it was against my least favorite player in the league who thinks/thought it was OK to kill dogs with his bare hands and now he's the toast of the league...just sickening. Much as I loathe him, he is a force right now. I'm not going to pretend to understand how such a beat down is possible after our bye week, after we beat them in Philly less than two months ago (granted without dog killer most of the game), on national TV, at home, et al...maybe we're further than I thought from being a contender but I think this was an aberration. I honestly think we will beat Tennessee this week. If not, we are not a playoff team this year. Even if we do we may not be, but any real hopes require a win Sunday. Shouldn't pride require the same?

First off, the 'dog killer' will get his one day. My bet is a blind fan with a seeing-eye-dog is at a game, Vick goes to sign an autograph, the little boy accidentally spills ketchup from his hot dog on him, and the dog, thinking it's blood in which he goes crazy just from the sight of it, jumps at 'dog killer' and in a fit of rage and crushes Vick's jugular! A man can dream right?

Second, we were never really 'Super Bowl Contenders' anyway, the Shannahan/McNabb signings made us seem better than we actually are. We have improved from last year, but I guess people got their hopes up and expect more. As long as I see steady improvement from the previous year I'll be happy. But we're still at least 2 more offseasons from competing.

100% agreed. We have a lot of holes to fill, the same people screaming are the same ones that loved the moves in the off season. it is a rebuilding year after all, first part of our schedule was not that great, the second half is going to be tough...deal with it. We have the team we have for now, only so much we can do in the first year of a rebuilding year with limited draft picks.

Posted by: mhartz1 | November 17, 2010 12:53 PM | Report abuse

Rebuilding means you don't cut a young 6'2" wide out with 4.3 speed to hang on to ancient 'professional receivers'.

We dropped that dead weight and added a better player.

Devin "dive ass" Thomas:
3 years in the NFL
40 receptions
445 yard
3 TDS
11.1 Avg

Anthony Armstrong:
8 Career Games
20 Receptions
451 yards
1 TD
22.6 Avg

If anyone honestly believes that we didnt replace Devin Thomas with a better player, you are misguided.

No one will disagree with J. Galloway being trash, but Armstrong is already a better player than D. Thomas with 2 1/2 years less in the NFL.

In 8 games he has surpassed 3 years of D. Thomas. No Comparison.

Alan, as I said on the previous thread, it's all guesswork right now. We can connect as many dots as we want in whatever direction...at the end of the day, we have NO idea what Redskins team is gonna show up from one week to the next or whether this direction with Allen/Shanahan is the right one. All I'm sayin' is let the thing play out.

The only people I'm taking exception to are the ones who are definitively saying "it's over" and that every move in the 2010 offseason was the wrong one. I don't care if you or anyone else agrees with me on whether McNabb or anyone else was a mistake...just don't tell me that it's over before I see the conclusion of the Giants game Week 17 or before there's 0:00 on the clock. We've rebounded from much worse...

I agree re Armstrong; he's 10X the player D. Thomas is.

Joey Galloway and Roydell Williams should be cut after the season though.

Since Vick is showing the world how some time being incarcerated can reignite a man, it might not be a bad idea for Shanahan to check out Plaxico Burress once he gets out of jail on June 6, 2011.

That would have been reaaallly interesting fodder for all of the haters. Then he takes them team to 11-0 and eventual super bowl MVP.

fwiw, playing vs vick is like playing a totally different type of offense. His mobility led to several successful pass plays, in addition to his effective runs.

In 2007, a very good Pats team got obliterated by Miami and their wildcat formation 38-13. It wasn't that Miami was a great team, it was that they did things a lot differently than anyone else -- and the Pats didn't know how to respond to it.

Similar situation with the Skins on Monday. We didn't know how to respond to vick.

I won't say we are a good team -- but even a good team can look bad when an offense has a unique challenge that you only see once or twice a year.

Well, W's & L's are most important, but points do factor into post-season tiebreakers pretty heavily.

http://www.nfl.com/standings/tiebreakingprocedures


Within a division, points for/against factors into the 5th, and 7th through 11th tiebreakers. In determining wild cards, it factors into the 4th, and 6th through 10th tiebreakers.

I get what you're saying, and final score isn't the most important thing, but it's also not trivial.

Redskins Journal


Was Joey Galloway demoted during Monday night’s game?
Redskins coach Mike Shanahan and offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan in recent weeks have spoken highly of veteran wide receiver Joey Galloway despite his lack of statistical production.

Their praise, however, has rung hollow with many fans and media partly because they almost never publicly critique players and because Galloway’s scant production—only nine catches on 32 targets this season—belies their positive evaluations of his play.

Mike Shanahan’s actions speak the loudest in these cases, and we might have learned his true feelings during Monday night’s 59-28 loss to Philadelphia.

Roydell Williams replaced Galloway as the Redskins’ third receiver after a pass intended for Galloway was intercepted with 5:08 remaining the second quarter. Williams played 24 snaps the rest of the game; Galloway played only one.

The interception occurred on third-and-12 from Washington’s 11-yard line. Galloway lined up wide left and ran what quarterback Donovan McNabb treated as a deep ‘in’ route. It appeared that Galloway did not push cornerback Dimitri Patterson up the field with his route, and his cut in was not sharp.

Patterson broke hard to the inside at the top of Galloway’s route, beating him to the ball for the catch. The play occurred right in front of the Redskins’ sideline.

Galloway’s only offensive snap the rest of the game came on the play after McNabb missed Williams on a deep throw.

Another strike against Galloway on Monday was his drop of a potential third-down conversion. With the Redskins’ offense struggling to keep the team in the game during a horrific first quarter, Galloway would have converted third-and-8 if he had caught the ball, but McNabb’s perfect throw went through his hands.

Galloway, who turns 39 on Saturday, already has been demoted once this season. Anthony Armstrong replaced him in the starting lineup in Week 6.

Mike Shanahan was not asked about Galloway after the game on Monday, and he was not made available to reporters yesterday. We should learn more about the decision today.

Redskins Nation, I told you so.

Shanahan is not the man for the job and Snyder is further ruining this team. As I said this summer, the correct approach is to rebuild with youth and take your lumps along the way. Instead, the Redskins have squandered draft picks on declining players and have one of the highest payrolls and oldest teams in the league. Monday night showed the folly of the current approach.

The Redskins have been stealing all year and this time they were caught red-handed and b!tch-slapped in front the entire country before being let off with a warning.

It's going to continue until Snyder gets more serious about winning instead of making $$$.

Told us what? They're 4-5. Shannahan is doing it with a team that doesn't have a lot of talent at all. The Snyder/Cerrato debacles are not the fault of the current administration. If you think McNabb is done, you don't know football. He'll be the starting QB here for at least two more years unless they draft a kid like a Bradford that comes along quick. McNabb solidifes the QB position and now they can fill in their huge holes along the OL, DL and at WR.

It will take time, Shanahan/Allen know what they are doing. We're better than last year. Next year, we'll be better than this year and in the 3rd year, they will contend for the division and a playoff spot. You can book it!

monk, he brought everything that happened to him, on himself, and has no one to blame but himself, that being said, he's more than paid his pennance...I feel...

hess...here's the thing, and I'll try and write it in terms that even YOU might understand...I've moved on from the DT thing, I've stopped talking about it, you, on the other hand, keep bringing it up..you've yet to stop pissing and whining on an almost DAILY basis about snyder...you sound like a 12 year old girl...

First off, the 'dog killer' will get his one day. My bet is a blind fan with a seeing-eye-dog is at a game, Vick goes to sign an autograph, the little boy accidentally spills ketchup from his hot dog on him, and the dog, thinking it's blood in which he goes crazy just from the sight of it, jumps at 'dog killer' and in a fit of rage and crushes Vick's jugular! A man can dream right?


First off, I told you ALL one day SOON (back when the Eagles first signed him), MICHEAL VICK will come into D.C. and TORCH the Redskins.

I just didn't think it'll be to the tune of SIX TDs! What I want to know is where are all the adamant Vick non-believers at today??? MistaMoe is the first that comes to mind. Dude swore on his Nolan Ryan rookie card that Micheal Vick is not a NFL quarterback. How's that Fillet of Crow tasting these days, Mo'? Another one I think was brownwood26... I guess ol' Mikey is capable of reading a NFL defense, huh?


But back to the Vick larynx crushing:

Indeed, because drowning, electrocuting, and forcing dogs to fight each other carries a capital punishment sentence. Why is this man still NOT in prison? Don't they know he killed little doggies? The black bastard needs to be injected with 500mL of battery acid, the son of a b*tch!


Gee, it sure is fun to be irrational and hateful... Whatever.

The "dog fighting" stuff is getting old and tried. But not quite as tried as "Kobe is a rapist".


Oh and the "It's just another loss" or "it's just one game" crowd never ceases to amaze me. Coincidentally they are the same ones who wave their burgundy & gold pom-poms to the point of muscle failure in support of any and everything Redskins. Doesn't matter if half the football world disagrees with or is at least questioning the move or decision: 'What the hell do they know?' 'We were 4-12 last year!' 'Shanahan's gotta clean up Vinny's mess...' or my personal favorite: 'We had Zorn last year... it could be worse.'

Yeah, I guess it could. Instead of giving up 59 points, they could have went balls out and gave up 74 points -- besting their total points allowed by 1.

Not hard to understand that no one saw the alleged spitting incident.

It's not like they saw much else either...

...save perhaps Philly flushing them like a used tampon.

I thought this article had to do with the absurd accusation from one of the idiot eagle boys about Landry spitting on him which did not happen. Typical eagle player BS IMO. This has nothing to do with Snyder and company. Stick to the subject.

and listening to you whine about how folks TRUELY feel about the redskins is pathetic. I hope the redskins turn it around, but I've seen enough of this owner after 10 YEARS take money from folks and blow it on has-beens, which is what the new crowned GM did right out of the gate. who was he trying to impress with trading draft picks for old vets, snyder ?

as for the players of the golden years, you think they're proud of this franchise and how snyder runs it ? I doubt it

The only ones whining are folks like you. They aren't very good, which shouldn't be any surprise. The TRUTH is, whether you'll admit it or not, some folks will dislike anything this organization does as long as Snyder runs it. As I said, get used to it, or root for a team you respect. He isn't going anywhere, and he appears to have made changes that we all wanted. If you want to conjure up conspiracy theories on why he's still meddling with decision making, then you're wasting your time with this team - because you'll never stop.

If you TRULY FEEL you dislike this organization, find another one. Otherwise...MAN THE F--K UP.

I have no idea if LL spit in the guy's face, but his excuse that he doesn't rush the A gap or whatever it was, is a little hollow. Are we supposed to think that in the aftermath of a play they're all where they started and not all heading back to the huddle and passing one another on the field? I hope he didn't but it's just a little suspicious, his alibi.

It doesn't surprise me a BIT!

I saw Laron Landry at Tyson's, with some chick, last year. He was walking out into the parking garage as I was coming in with my 5 year old daughter.

I was like, "HEY! Laron Landry! Man, big fan! My daughter Chelsea loves you, too!"

He just kinda smirked. I thought maybe it was because last year he was having a bad year, missing tackles and all that.

So, I asked if he had a minute for me to go back to the car and get something to write on so my daughter could get his autograph.

He said, "No way, man, I'm in a hurry, s'cue me" and I was kinda trying to block his path and beg him and he just went:

"HAAAAAAACCCCCKKKKKKKKGGGGGHHHHHHKKKKKKKK"... like a giant snot wind-up, and the girl he was with just kinda took a step back, like she knew what was coming, and Chelsea looked at me like, "Dad? What is he doing?" And I just looked at her like, "I don't know, Chelsea. Maybe he's got something stuck in his throat?" That's the look I gave her, and I was still smiling...

And then he totally unleashed a vat of snotty phlegm, like it had been shot out of one of those battleship guns, right into my face, with such force that it actually pushed my eyelashes back into my eyeballs.

So, Chelsea screamed and was yanking on my shirt, asking if I was OK, and I was totally blinded, sopping the slime off my face with my shirt, getting it out of my eye sockets and spitting globules out that had kinda coated my teeth... you know, because I had been smiling when he got me...

So, anyway, long story short, by the time I could see again, albeit through snot residue and still blurry, Landry and the chick had disappeared.

I went back to the car with Chelsea to get some paper towels out of the trunk to get the rest of the mucus out of my eyebrows and clean it out of my nostrils, but on the way there, this black Mercedes SUV with dark tint is coming down one of the lanes we were crossing, so I waited for it, and it was Landry and the chick again and this time, he dropped the window and leaned over on her side and shot another snot grenade at me.

I was ready that time, so he didn't hit me, I kinda ducked sideways, but, yeah, he's definitely capable of spitting.

It was pretty cool to see Laron Landry at the mall, though. His chick was HOT, too. So, it was pretty neat.

Yeah, I totally got your meaning, but the word is "Taunt." When you hear that word used, it should have an "N" sound in it. But, yeah, maybe we should start taunting them. Good suggestion!

If he DID spit on McGlynn or whoever the guy is, I'd be a bit upset that it wasn't on Vick.

I mean, if you're gonna use the spit, use it smartly. You don't go wasting it on centers and stuff. They're already covered in spit and snot. Get a QB or a wideout. I mean, Vick would have been perfect.

If he wasn't such a coward, he'd respond violently, and Landry would get to clobber him and they'd be charged with a penalty.

It would have to be a "misty" kinda spit, though. I mean, the full monty one he gave me would definitely have been visible on camera. It basically soaked my entire head, chest, and shoulders. So, a more "precise," or "smart spit" type of projectile would be better for Vick, because of all the camera angles as they repeatedly repeat repetitiously that he's "a whole new person, a new man, and a different person and a very mature and wonderful person" now. And not the guy who killed dogs for fun. This is a different guy. We did a lineup and the old, past Vick was fingered, so this new one, by default, couldn't have done it.

So, yeah, not a big Vick fan. I hope he gets his. He'll break Philly's heart by the way. He'll cave when he's confronted like he always has. He's a bully. Likes to drown dogs that trust him. He doesn't like getting hit by men. I think it hurts him or something.

To all:

At the end of the day, there are 2 columns you look for on the stat sheet. Wins and Losses.

Philly could of scored a 100 on us but this league isn't run off of a point system. Was it a smack-down? Yes. Was it embarrassing? Yes. But it's over. It sucks that it was a division opponent but we're split even with Philly now. If we take care of business against the rest of our division games, we're still in it.

I know a lot of fans take this personally when a loss like that happens, but we have to look ahead and focus on what we need to do against the Titans. And bi@*hing and moaning isn't helping our team.

So let's help our Redskins by showing our support.

Dare to dream but I remember feeling very much the same during this loss and look how that season turned out. Being angry after they way the Skins have played since 1992 is understandable but there is a lot of season left. It probably won't happen again but you never know. Even though the score was a lot closer the BBG loss was just as embarrassing because the Skins were so physically beaten down in that game.

The Body Bag Game was a Monday Night Football game that was played on November 12, 1990 between the Philadelphia Eagles and the Washington Redskins. During this game, eight Redskin players were injured, including starting quarterback Jeff Rutledge and backup Stan Humphries. Washington, already playing without quarterbacks Mark Rypien (who was injured earlier in the season) and Gary Hogeboom (inactive), had to end the game with rookie running back/kick returner Brian Mitchell at quarterback.

Following the Body Bag Game game the Eagles would go on to win five of their last seven under Randall Cunningham, finish the season 10-6 and earn a wild card playoff berth, the fourth seed in the tough NFC.

The Redskins meanwhile also would win five of their last seven to finish the season 10-6, losing the number four seed spot to the Eagles. Despite this, the Redskins would return to Veterans stadium and defeat the Eagles in the Wild Card playoff game, 20-6.

When it comes to Laron "Big Mouth" Landry, did you ever notice how close "Spitting" comes to "Quitting? He's right where he belongs.
LUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUZER!

The only thing that will help the Deadskins now is a record for the leagues largest list on Injured Reserve.
