Malcolm Kelly, Kareem Moore don't make the trip north

Starting quarterback Donovan McNabb, out with a sprained ankle, watched the game from the sideline, but two other Redskins did not make the trip to New Jersey.

Wide receiver Malcolm Kelly, who has missed all three preseason games and has practiced just once because of a hamstring injury, stayed home. So did Kareem Moore, the projected starter at free safety. Moore suffered a knee injury during last week's loss to Baltimore and had arthroscopic surgery earlier in the week. He's expected to miss four-to-six weeks.

Reed Doughty started in his place.

Shanahan calls a time out right after the sack... Tell me Zorn doesn't wait 20-30 secs to make that call.

Nice hustle play by Perry Riley.

Defense looks like it should be really good this year. They will give up some big plays, particularly early as the get accustomed to the scheme. Rex will give us a heart attack any time he plays. He knows the offense but he's an accident waiting to happen.

Moss should of had that great throw.

Very sloppy end to the half.

Nice. Good job, Rexy.

wow - just seeing the safety made me think of THIS!!!!

nice fumble recovery, tho!! kudos on turnover, Haslett.

6-5! What an exciting preseason game with Rex Grossman commanding the offense. I feel really good about our backup QB.

I'll take that half considering who we had at QB, this whole team seems more physical which I like. You can tell that there might be some growing pains but the team will be better overall then we were last year for sure.

Can I say something about our 2 min management this season?

Night & Day. No confusion and despair - either they execute or they don't, but at least they know what they're doing.

Nice

Nobody has done crap against the Jets number 1 defense this preseason 6 points is not bad.

I'm starting to get the feeling that Kemo is not as stout as we need for a NT, particularly in short yardage situation. Starting regular season, I think AH will take those reps as well from Kemo until Kemo is all the way back from his injury.

First half game balls to Oline for pass pro, AA, AH, D Hall.

Definitely. After the Jets failed to convert on that third down w/ 2:47 left, Shanny called a timeout right away. Would have would have taken Zorn 20-30 secs to make that call.

Posted by: saltine182 | August 27, 2010 8:43 PM | Report abuse

Good 1st half. Rex is a backup, but the protection has been good considering the quality of defense. The OL hasn't been able to get much in the run block, and Parker looks like he's headed out of town (no surprise).

The DL has given up a bunch of yards on the ground, and there is cause for concern. Not sure when Albert came in, but he was a force on a number of plays. Though he was handled 1 on 1 on the Wilson sack.

Importantly, the defense against the pass has been hard to read for Sanchez. The Jets haven't done much in 2nd or 3rd and long.

Nice play by Buchanaon to force the fumble.

The refs are uneven and the game looked a bit a ragged. But I think McNabb fixes the ragged on our end. The safety wouldn't have happened with McNabb in there.

Like the block I saw Armstrong throw in the run to left. And he's good on teams.

Too bad about Banks, take it to the house 1 week, cough it up the next. Can't cough it up and make the roster.

Lots of reasons to be pleased

Actually, my only problem w/ the first half, and it isn't so much of a problem as it was a surprise - is how hard it is to stop LT.

I mean, they're controlling the drive, so that's good - but he's racking it up on us, ain't he?

Posted by: DikShuttle | August 27, 2010 8:44 PM | Report abuse

Defense has been stout, no question.

Also, keep in mind how crucial Portis is to pass pro. Not too shabby against the #1 defense in the NFL from 2009...

The defense is designed to make plays, but it also allows plays. Yeah, LT has been too good, but the Jets haven't been able to keep a drive the whole way. A few good plays don't get a TD.

Portis had a very good blitz pickup on one play.

Don't be so hasty! Maybe Shanny is waiting till regular season to unveil his new revolutionary vastly improved run blocking scheme... er, do you think... or hope?

In any case, I think we can say "bye bye Willie".

MK12 likely stayed home because Shanahan told him too. He is likely gone since McNabb made the trip to watch and learn. Shame. We REALLY need a big fast WR.
