Marcus Doubtful; Randle El Questionable

Everypone else probable.

Marcus and Antwaan were the only guys to miss practice.

Daniels practiced - no one thought he would be able to, including him - and while listed as probable said the coaches could still opt to be cautious and hold him out until next week. He also could end up stiff and sore Saturday, which would change things.

Randle El will be a game time decision and they expect him to warm up and go from there.

Smoot was back and talking trash after missing Thursday with the stomach flu. Iron Mike Sellers practiced fully also.

Like I said on a previous post earlier this week... Daniels is a warrior!

If we can afford it with good play by Godfrey... It could be helpful to let Marcus sit out this week - it will give his elbow some more time to heal as well... Having that arm get heal up will only help him down the road... esp when rushing the passer!

Time for the O-Line to be big this weekend and pound that GreenBay D.

M. Washington is a major loss to the defense. He always has to be accounted for not just in blitz packages but also in coverage. Tremendous news about Daniels. After Fred "Capt. Stubing" Smoot played with a cracked sturnum it was clear the guy deserves warrior status. I read an article yesterday in ESPN Magazine while waiting to get a haircut. They referred to Randel El as barely a 3rd WR. Does Jason write for them too?

Posted by: Wayne P. | October 12, 2007 2:02 PM | Report abuse

Wayne P,

That shows what ESPN knows... El is going to continue to open eyes this year. I think he will only get better as a receiver as the season progresses and thus far he's been our best (no knock on Moss).

Some ESPN analysts are right on and others don't know JACK SJK!

Posted by: Nate in the PDX | October 12, 2007 01:46 PM

Nate in PDX, you've gotta point, but I doubt they will come into this game over confident.. Favre & Lambeau alone give cause for concern.. but match up wise, I believe favors the skins. Pack have a potent d (against lousy offenses mind you), o-line is nicked up, they have not faced a D with the speed that the skins' d has,2 of their top 3 receivers are inexperienced, their TE is big but he's not gonna stretch the field like say a shockey,they have no run game.. Hopefully the skins can put together 4 qtrs of hard nosed football and bring home a win, but I am not saying it will be easy.

Posted by: Dik | October 12, 2007 2:11 PM | Report abuse

Marcus is less critical against the Pack who throw short and quick. And we have depth at LB. D-line won't sack Favre much because of his quick passes, but they need to get their hands up to tip passes. ARE is important because he and Santana are really both dangerous and open up the whole offense. In case no one noticed, the Skins may think they are a power run team, but the offense is more effective with a pass first mentality. I think a big part of that is Campbell getting his rhythm down early. Still, its football and injuries will always be a part and so far, our depth has been good enough.

Posted by: Zebra | October 12, 2007 2:18 PM | Report abuse

E in VB, I concur. Randel El is a bona fide threat any time he touches the ball. It's just funny reading articles from September and what all these experts predict. They're all the same anyway. It's like one person writes an article and everyone else regurgitates it so either they're all right or all wrong. Man, dare to step outside the box once in a while.

Getting back to the injuries, I still think Randel El will play because he has value on the field even if he just runs a rout to draw coverage away from the primary WR. Also, with all the modern 'treatment' available to por ballers these days, isn't a week plenty of time for a hammy? Could this be a case of JJG fudging the IR's again? I'm thinking yes. Watch for Favre to look for screens and short dumps to RB's and TE's because Marcus has the speed and the smarts to make those plays - he's proven it.

Now we have a real 'chicken or the egg' theory. Is the D-Line playing well because of the brilliant secondary play - or vice versa?

Not that I don't mind LoFleBaker being in the mix now...

But Holdmann, ugh. Godfrey might not be great, and might not be putting himself on the highlight reels anytime soon, but at least he doesn't draw attention to himself for playing badly.

I think Clinton Hill is only here because he keeps clicking on the "marijuana" ad appearing in the top righthand corner of this page. Clinton, just call Travis Henry for a dub. Marshall was terrible, I hate to say. If I were a coach I would have every running play aimed at him and have my QB throw to anyone he was efforting to cover. he actually made Adam Archibald's look good.

I can't believe that Randel El is going to get all taped up, dress and warm up just to ride the pine this week.

Does Doc Walker have anymore nicknames this week? I can't keep up. Hey, what if the sister of the S.Carolina QB married the QB from USC. What would HER name be? Or if Rocky MacIntosh married Gwenneth Paltrow, what would Gwenneth's kid's name be? I think I need to start my own column.

"Tony might get better stats, but he will be up and down, a gunslinger type. Where JC will be cool calm and collected and will win games and not lose them."

Ummm.. El isn't on IR, how can JJG be fudging IR when none of the players mentioned were even considered for IR.

But it could be a case of making the inactive decisions easier on the ol' man's heart strings. It's got to be easier to sit the guy with the injury. So far, injury has been his main reason for sitting starting players for a game all year (Springs, Smoot, Moss). Part me thinks he is trying to keep these guys off the field till they are closer to 100% to ensure we still have them come playoff time!

From the ESPN Chat today:

Anthony (College Park, MD): You mentioned those Green Bay slants. How long do you think they're going to do that on Sunday with Laron Landry and Sean Taylor in the middle of the field?

Matt Williamson: The slants run more at the LBs. Wash's safeties-which are killers, I agree-probably won't get direct shots on them right after the catch. Very short throws.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Larry (Brooklyn, NY): Eli, Romo or campbell 3 years from now?...I take campbell because he's the most physically talented and makes the fewest mistakes

Matt Williamson: Very tough call, but give me Campbell. Right now: Romo. Then? Campbell. VERY bright future. That isn't a knock on either of the other two though.

Lloyd has a chance to do something this week but I fear that he got paid just doesn't care anymore.

Wayne P...let me try to explain it to you like I would to a 3rd grader...Our good friend from Public Enemy (Chuck D.) was merely trying to state that given that El has a hamstring injury, the coaches and trainers do not want to make it worse. If it gets worse, it could turn into a more severe injury, such as a severe pull or tear, which may take longer to heal.

Posted by: Anonymous | October 12, 2007 3:52 PM | Report abuse

A little anatomy lesson.

Hamstrings are the largest muscle group in the body and run down the back of the leg from the pelvis to the knee. The groin muscles are in the upper inside portion of the leg and across the lower front pelvic area. Both are very slow to heal since both are used for most everyday functions, including walking, running, sitting down, standing up, etc.

Santana has a groin muscle pull. ARE has a hamstring pull.

Muscle pulls and tears can be the result of improper stretching, but are most often caused by imbalances in muscle development. The hamstrings are balanced by the quadriceps (front of the thigh), for example. Over-development of either one will cause problems in the other.

ESPN INSIDER, Take 2: Skins vs. Packers

http://insider.espn.go.com/nfl/feat...ameId=271014009


Earlier this week, our scouts filed their advance scouting report on this week's matchup between the Redskins and packers. Now they're back with a second look.

Matchup to watchWashington offensive coordinator Al Saunders vs. Green Bay defensive coordinator Bob Sanders
Saunders has kept defenses on their heels this season and his feel for when to call a run or pass has been exceptional. And his use of screens and some gimmick plays with WR Antwaan Randle El gives opponents even more to prepare for. Saunders also likes to use TE Chris Cooley on option routes and on the backside of play-action passes to force the opposing safeties to come down and help in pass defense, which in turn opens up deeper routes.

Sanders will have a lot of his plate this weekend his defense must be the aggressor and dictate the tempo of the game. The Packers can do that by penetrating upfield with defensive lineman and hurrying Redskins' QB JasonCampbell. The right combination of blitzes and coverages can confuse the Washington and get Campbell in a panic state. The advantage goes to Saunders and his hot hand, though.


How can the Redskins force turnovers against the Green Bay passing game?
It's always easier said than done, but if Washington can put enough pressure on Packers QB Brett Favre and keep him uneasy in the pocket he is prone to make mistakes and throw interceptions. Favre has limited his mistakes so far this season, though, and Washington defensive coordinator Gregg Williams will have to find a way to not only pressure Favre but also disguise coverages. The Redskins defense shutdown the Detroit passing game last week with pressures and tight coverage and the recipe for success will likely be the same this week. Washington FS Sean Taylor and CB Carlos Rogers have been playing well and have become ball magnets, while DE Andre Carter has been relentless off the edge and OLB Marcus Wasington has timed the blitzes well in recent weeks. All four will have to play well again this week to force mistakes from Favre and get a win for the Redskins.

Can Washington QB Jason Campbell remain hot against a solid Green Bay defense?
Campbell is one of the most underrated and improved players in the NFL this season. He has been playing at a high level, making big plays and limiting his mistakes. Campbell is finally comfortable with offensive coordinator Al Saunders' play book, which is as thick as a phone book, and Saunders is adding new wrinkles and concepts each week.

On the other side of the ball, the Packers come with very solid coverage players in CBs Al Harris and Charles Woodson. Both are capable of being shutdown corners in man coverage and taking away Redskins' WRs Santana Moss and Antwaan Randle El. Injury could force Randle El out of the lineup this week, but if he does play he is capable of stretching the field vertically. Green Bay LBs A.J. Hawk and Nick Barnett will be tested on play-action and must stay disciplined and get good coverage drops. Overall, it looks like Campbell should still have a solid day even with the talent on the Packers' defense.

Can Green Bay run the ball against the Redskins defense?
The Green Bay offense has two capable running backs in DeShawn Wynn and Vernand Morency and is capable of getting over 100 yards in most games. However, the Packers are facing a Redskins defense that has been stingy against the run and is playing with a lot of intensity. In order for Green Bay to be successful on the ground there must be a commitment to getting Wynn and Morency more carries than the 22 they had last week against Chicago. The offensive line has been playing well and moving defenders off the line of scrimmage and if offensive coordinator Joe Philbin can establish the running game early it will open up play-action for Favre, something the veteran excels at.

Scouts' Edge
The Scouts Inc. Position Advantage
QBRBWROLDLLBDBSTCoach

The Redskins are on a roll and everyone in Washington is playing well, while the Packers are coming off a loss to the Bears in a game they feel got away from them. Lambeau Field is a tough place for a road team to win but the Redskins still get the edge this week. Washington should be able to establish the run game well and control time of possession, and if they stick to their strengths they can get the win. In addition, Washington should be able to keep Favre on the sideline with Turnovers and three-and-out possessions, and avoid it second loss of the season.

DID LIONS QUIT? Redskins tight end Cooley says Detroit didn't care in 2nd half
October 12, 2007

FREE PRESS STAFF AND NEWS SERVICES


Redskins tight end Chris Cooley told Washington-based radio station DC101-FM that the Lions quit in the second half of their 34-3 loss this past Sunday, partly because of the heat.

"I think it was a contributing factor in why we won the game," Cooley said. "I mean, Detroit's not practicing in 90-degree heat. We have been. It's been hot every day. We were pretty used to it. They were dead in the second half. They didn't care. It seemed like they didn't care what happened.

"When you get tired, fatigue kind of takes over. We were dominating the first half of the game and it stayed close, but we really pulled away in the second half when they made a lot of errant plays."

When asked if he could tell the Lions' heads were not into the game, Cooley said, "You could definitely tell."

"For example, we come out (in the first quarter), we come out and try to run the ball, and they're real physical. They're playing solid. It's tough to get yards -- everything's high-speed. And then, a couple plays into the second half, and it's just like, I get into blocking a guy, and they pretty much just stop and let me block them.

"It's like, 'Well, thanks, buddy,' I'll just hold you here and we'll run away from you."

But trading is scary. In 10 years of fantasy football, I've made maybe 4 trades. You just don't want to get your azz handed to you.

Sunday's game: Packers 27, Redskins 17
Comment: The Packers have to protect the football better. There is NO excuse for 5 turnovers like Green Bay had against the Bears. TE Chris Cooley has to be covered better than the Packers covered the Chicago tight ends. The Redskins have perhaps the best set of hard hitting safeties in football, so ball security has to be a priority. The Packers have to re-establish the Lambeau Field home field advantage after their meltdown vs. the Bears.

Sunday's game: Redskins 24, Packers 23
Comment: Through the first five games, Green Bay caught teams at the best time. Sunday they're catching a 'Skins team on a warpath. Last week the Redskins sacked statistical juggernaut Jon Kitna five times, forced two interceptions, and outgained Detroit by 222 yards in a 35-0 wipeout. Washington isn't spectacular, rather solid in every aspect. Heady third-year quarterback Jason Campbell is evolving into more than a caretaker and Clinton Portis has shown flashes of his '03 self. This will be a very entertaining, tight game between two young teams becoming NFC powers.

Comment: This is the toughest test of the year, and this game should really shed some light on whether this is a playoff team. Sometimes, a loss is a good thing, and I think that was the case against the Bears. As long as the Packers listened and learned from what happened last week, they'll eke out a last-minute win.

Comment: The Skins are coming on strong behind quarterback Jason Campbell. But the second half collapse against the Bears will be all the motivation the Packers need for this week.

Comment: In the NFL, it's all about when you play a team, and not so much who you play. Washington dominated Detroit last Sunday and is playing well in all three facets - offense, defense and special teams. The Packers struggled on offense in the second half of their loss to the Bears, and now face the top defense in the NFC that plays a similar defense as the Bears. Not good for the Pack.

Tom Andrews, Correspondent
Packers 2007 season prediction record: 2-3
Pre-season prediction on Green Bay's 2007 record: 8-8
Sunday's game: Packers 24 Redskins 17
Comment: No doubt, the Redskins will present a formidable challenge to the young Packers. They have a steady young quarterback, Jason Campbell, leading a ball control offense that also features running back Clinton Portis and explosive wide receiver Santana Moss. Moss is coming back from a groin injury and didn't play last week against Detroit. Joe Gibbs has his defense playing well, too. They're tough to gain yards against and they can bring the heat against the quarterback (they sacked Lions QB Jon Kitna five times last week). Still, I look for the Packers to bounce back at home after giving a game to the Bears in front of a national audience last Sunday. If the Packers stop shooting themselves in the foot with turnovers and can build on the modest success they had against Chicago with the running game, they should be able to turn back the Redskin threat and gain pleasant entry into Bye Week.

Pre-season prediction on Green Bay's 2007 record: 7-9

Comment: The Packers' loss last week makes this week interesting. How do they respond against a good Redkins team? The Bears' loss was tough to take, because it could've put the Bears four games behind the Packers. Still, in a 16-game season you can't lool like a Mercedes every week. Once in a while, you will look like a junker. The Packers can't possibly give the game away again like last week, but I think we all realize this team is only good, not great. With that in mind, the Packers edge Washington.

if i've learned anything from watching all that football all these years is that good teams find a way to win. no matter who is injured or how many.

so no worries. if the skins are a good team they will win and if they're not they won't. it's just that simple. and i believe they're good.

Big game calls for big performance by defense
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Steve Lawrence
PackerReport.com Oct 13, 2007

The Packers' defense has been solid, but not spectacular, and has fallen far short of the preseason hype it helped create, PackerReport.com's Steve Lawrence says.

With 5-0 Dallas hosting 5-0 New England on Sunday, the media are frothing at the mouth like a couple of rabid dogs sitting in front of the meat counter at the grocery store.
Oh, what could have been, though.

Had Joe Gibbs not forgotten how to coach in the waning moments against the New York Giants and had the Packers not treated the football like it was covered in angry hornets last week against the Bears, the Packers and Redskins would be entering Sunday's tilt at Lambeau Field with a combined 9-0 record.

Alas, we'll have to settle for merely a combined record of 7-2, and, frankly, a bigger game in the grand scheme of things.

That's especially so for the Packers, who are riding high in first place but could be riding low if they suffer a second consecutive loss heading into next week's bye.

When you looked at the schedule back in late August, you would have thought the games against San Diego and Chicago would have been the toughest on the first half of the tricky season schedule. Looking through the prism of today, however, it's safe to say Sunday's game against the Redskins will be the toughest.

Much has been made of the matchup between Brett Favre and the Packers' receivers against the Redskins' star-studded secondary. Washington is allowing a ridiculously low 4.52 yards per pass attempt this season, while Favre is having a sublime year at this late juncture of his career.

The opposite matchups, however, are just as intriguing, and not just because the Packers' defense needs to step up should the offense falter.

Led by budding quarterback Jason Campbell, Washington ranks fourth in the NFC in offense, including third in rushing and ninth in passing. Campbell has been sacked just five times, a testament not only to his line but the third-year pro's unexpected poise in his first year as the unquestioned starter.

"He's young at quarterback, we know that, but I felt like he made some real good decisions," Gibbs said. "And many times your quarterback, the best decision he makes is when it's not there, when he chooses to do the smart thing."

The Packers' defense, meanwhile, hasn't been bad -- not by a long shot -- but it hasn't been the standout unit everyone expected.

That group talked boldly of developing into a top-five unit this season. Instead, after five games against not exactly the most potent offenses the NFL has to offer, the Packers rank 17th in the NFL in yards allowed -- 14th against the run and a surprising 23rd against the pass -- and 12th in points allowed with 18.6 points per game.

Fortunately, the Packers' defense has come up huge at some opportune times -- Aaron Kampman's sack and strip of Eli Manning against the Giants, Nick Barnett's interception against the Chargers and Atari Bigby's interception against the Vikings -- but overall, this group hasn't met the lofty expectations it set for itself.

A few players haven't taken their necessary and expected steps forward. Chief among them is safety Nick Collins, who has been little more than a tease during his brief career. A.J. Hawk, like the Barnett of last season and 2005, has made a bunch of tackles but few of significance. Bigby was all over the place in the preseason but largely quiet during the first five games.

"I think our defense has played outstanding in spurts and has played very good for the most part," Packers coach Mike McCarthy said this week. "But we're having those explosive gains come up ... three, four a game that's really not giving them the opportunity to close an offense out."

While hardly disappointments, Charles Woodson -- who had eight interceptions last season but is looking for his first this season -- and Al Harris haven't been quite as dominant. That's led to the pass defense's disappointing ranking and an abundance of "explosive plays" -- 26 completions of at least 16 yards, including the huge breakdown that led to Desmond Clark's late 34-yard, go-ahead touchdown that lifted the Bears last week.

So far, it's been the surprising Packers offense that's been carrying the team. Sunday's showdown would be a perfect time for a talented Packers defense to play up to the hype it created.

Thoughts on Redskins tight ends; James Jones, Packers sluggish 2-minute offense

October 12, 2007
Redskins Tight Ends
The Packers have had trouble covering opponents' tight ends for a year or so. The Redskins have a good tight end in Chris Cooley. He has some crazy hair but will be a challenge for the defense.
I hope Washington goes with two tight ends, though. Their backup TE is Todd Yoder. He went to Vanderbilt and I was one of the folks who recruited him. He came to Vandy for his visit and nobody was around, so Eric Johnson, who is now a coach at Iowa and I had to host Yoder. Not much was going on, so we took him to a Women's Basketball game against the USA national team. He was a high school running back his senior year, came to Vandy as a wide receiver and has now bulked up to play tight end. This is his seventh year and he has played for the Bucs and Jaguars in prior years. He is a special teams guy mostly but he has good hands. As a freshman, he was Vandy's only offensive weapon. They would just throw it up for him and hope he caught it.

Probably the most coincidental part is that he married a young lady who also went to Vanderbilt. After I finished my graduate degree at Vanderbilt, I was an assistant coach of the women's lacrosse team (it is a long story) for about six months and his wife Sue was the team's best player. Todd is about 6-5 and Sue is close to 5-foot so they are a contrast in styles. She was as fast as they come though and a fierce competitor.

The world is a small place.

Small-town Mississippians Favre and Campbell face off on Sunday

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Associated Press

ASHBURN, Va. -- Brett Favre and Jason Campbell grew up 100 miles apart in rural Mississippi. The combined population of their hometowns -- Kiln and Taylorsville -- is less than 4,000.

"You have nothing else to do but sit outside and throw footballs at trees," Campbell said Wednesday. "That's how you work on your accuracy. Knock some bark off a tree."

Small-town people not only have their own set of jokes, they are also quiet neighborly. So during the offseason Campbell figured he would pay a visit to the Green Bay Packers legend, who now lives in Hattiesburg. The Washington Redskins quarterback walked up -- unannounced -- to the call box outside Favre's gated home.

No answer. Campbell waited five minutes and went away.

"I didn't want a helicopter to come by," Campbell said.

Told on Wednesday that Campbell had come calling, Favre seemed bemused.

"I didn't know he came by," Favre said. "What did he say he was coming by for?"

I didn't notice that until I watched the game on the DVR the next day (I was at the game, and missed it there). I laughed like Sellers did. LOL

I really admire how physical Portis is mainly because he's not a big guy at all. The charts lie about his size. At one point at the Beach Blitz in May, I stood about 2 feet from him. That 5'10" he's listed at is a little generous. I'm 5'10", and he clearly was not as tall as me. So, it amazes me the way he constantly blows up linebackers and seeks out as much contact as he can get.

Redskins at Packers: Young (QB From Mississippi) Meets Old (QB From Mississippi)

Ryan WilsonPosted Oct 13th 2007 12:16PM by Ryan Wilson
Filed under: Packers, Redskins, NFC East, NFC North

To get you ready for week 6, FanHouse is previewing all this week's NFL games. Here is your Washington Redskins at Green Bay Packers preview.

2007 Records:
Washington Redskins: 3-1 (1st 2nd in NFC East)
Green Bay Packers: 4-1 (1st in NFC North)

Last Week:
Lions 3, Redskins 34
Bears 27, Packers 20

Last Meeting:
October 31, 2004: Green Bay 28, Washington 14

When the Redskins have the ball: Apparently, having a mobile, strong-armed quarterback is actually beneficial for an offense. Jason Campbell, in his first year as starter, is coming of NFC Offensive Player of the Week honors (he finished 23 for 29, passing for 248 yards and two touchdowns). According to Football Outsiders, the passing offense ranks eighth, even if Ladell Betts and Clinton Portis have yet to get going in the running game. (The patchwork offensive line might have something to do with that.)

Antwaan Randle El and Chris Cooley have picked up the slack for Santana Moss, who's been hampered by a sore hammy for most of the year.

When the Packers have the ball: Well, it's not original, but it still holds: how Brett Favre goes, so go the Packers. Last week, Favre had some key turnovers, and Brian Griese turned them into points for the Bears. The Redskins defense is much better than Chicago's, so Favre will have to minimize his mistakes (like he's done for most of the season), and Green Bay will need to run the ball effectively.

The Edge:
The Redskins haven't had much success under Joe Gibbs v2.0, and this will be their first tough road test of the season. Favre's experience and his newfound respect for minimizing turnovers (disregarding last week), should give Green Bay the slight advantage.

Players to Watch:
1.) Carlos Rogers. He's been maligned for much of his young career, but the former first-round pick is finally coming along at cornerback. He'll have his hands full against Favre, but the Redskins' pass rush is much improved this season, which is partly responsible for Rogers' success.

2.) A.J. Hawk. Some people thought he could've been a little tougher at the point of attack last season, but the second-year middle linebacker is making a case for one of the league's best young defenders.

3.) Mike Sellers. Well, just watch.

JASON,

WHAT ARE THE CHANCES I'M EVER GOING TO SEE MY PRIZE? JUST CURIOUS. NOT THAT I'LL STOP ASKING FOR IT IF YOU SAY I'M NEVER GOING TO GET IT, BUT I'M WONDERING IF YOU ACTUALLY HAVE AN ANSWER LIKE "SOMETIME THIS SEASON" OR "BEFORE I LEAVE THE POST" OR SOMETHING ALONG THOSE LINES.

I WOULD APPRECIATE IT IF YOU AT LEAST AWKNOWLEDGED THE FACT THAT YOU HELD A CONTEST, AWARDED SOMEONE (ME) THE WINNER, ANNOUNCED WHAT THE PRIZE WOULD BE (A CHRIS COOLEY-AUTOGRAPHED COPY OF THE DVD "HEAVY METAL PARKING LOT). THEN......YOU NEVER DELIVERED THE GOODS AND HAVE SINCE SAID ON AT LEAST A DOZEN OCCASIONS THAT YOU ARE "WORKING ON IT."

PROBLEM IS....THAT WAS OVER 14 MONTHS AGO, BUDDY.

Lefotu, what a dumba$$. LOL Can you get suspended from the practice squad? LOL Although, I don't imagine he'll survive here long enough for it to matter.

The guys on the roster behave themselves, and a knucklehead f'n practice squad dude goes out and gets in trouble. Pure comedy. I can just imagine Buges cursing him out. LOL

REDSKINS' LEFOTU ARRESTED by Michael David Smith

The Washington, D.C. television station WUSA is reporting that Redskins offensive lineman Kili Lefotu was arrested last night after an incident at an Ashburn, Virginia, restaurant.

Per WUSA, Lefotu is being held in Loudoun County jail and has been charged with being drunk in public, simple assault and destruction of property.

Lefotu is a first-year player who went to college at Arizona. His NFL.com player page says he has never appeared in a regular-season game, which means that if the Redskins (who are off this week) are in the mood to send a message that they won't tolerate players who get into off-field trouble, Lefotu would be a likely candidate to get cut.

We're going to need to re-set the "days without an arrest" counter after it reached the whopping total of two days.

"

2 things inaccurate off top.

1. This isn't his 1st year.

2. We are NOT off this week. We are playing a game against a team with combined record of 7-2......

From news reports - Favre, who will break a tie with George Blanda and become the league's all-time interception king with his next pick, has earned rave reviews for being more careful this year.

A defensive goal to shoot for tomorrow. I thinking Sean Taylor and Fred Smoot on the receiving end.

Posted by: noone from tampa | October 13, 2007 9:31 PM | Report abuse

Packers already planning: Nobody is on the field yet, and the Redskins defense is already making the Packers work overtime. Green Bay coach Mike McCarthy said he's had to spend extra time in the film room preparing for this week's practices because Washington is such an "uncommon opponent" with such aggressive pressure schemes.

The Redskins can run several variations of the Cover 2 and have simply been jamming receivers so effectively that McCarthy wants his team equipped to battle back. He also wants them free of the mistakes that led to last week's loss to Chicago, their first in nine games. "Our house is a little sloppy," McCarthy said. -- Rachel Nichols

KFFL: Matchups to Exploit: Washington Redskins at Green Bay Packers

Redskins RB Clinton Portis vs. Packers LBs Nick Barnett, A.J. Hawk and Brady Poppinga
The Redskins offense revolves around running with Portis (4.5 yards per carry), which in turn gives young quarterback Jason Campbell time to throw in the play-action game. Barnett, Hawk and Poppinga are the linebackers for a Packers defense that ranks No. 14 in the league in rushing yards allowed per game and 19th in yards allowed per carry. Barnett is off to a great start. Hawk has been solid but this season has not been the game-changing playmaker the Packers are looking for in last year's No. 5 overall pick. Barnett, Hawk and Poppinga are sure to be zeroing in on Portis this week to cut off the head of the Redskins offense.

Redskins WR Santana Moss vs. Packers CBs Charles Woodson and Al Harris
Moss (groin) caught 12 passes for 199 yards in three games but was sidelined against Detroit because of a groin injury. He is expected to play this week, though Washington may be without No. 2 receiver Antwaan Randle El (hamstring), who has a team-high 18 catches. If Randle El doesn't play, that makes it easier for the Packers to defend Moss. Woodson and Harris are often assigned to one receiver regardless of the side of the field on which they play. Both are physical corners who play press coverage. They've combined for five pass breakups.

Packers WRs Donald Driver and Greg Jennings vs. Redskins CBs Shawn Springs and Carlos Rogers
This is the matchup of the game: the Packers' top two receivers against the Redskins' starting corners. The Packers have been making a living with the short-to-intermediate passing game this season and lead the NFL in receiving yards per game. But the Redskins' secondary is playing well for a defense that ranks third in the league both in yards allowed and points allowed. Driver and Jennings have both been effective picking up yardage after the catch - Driver is averaging 5.9 yards after the catch, and Jennings, 8.8 yards after the catch. Tackling them immediately to limit the gain may be more important than preventing them from catching the ball. If Springs and Rogers are on top of their games and get help from safeties Sean Taylor and LaRon Landry, they could keep the Packers offense off the field.

Packers C Jason Spitz vs. Redskins DT Cornelius Griffin
This is a key matchup because the Packers lost starting center Scott Wells (eye) when he sustained a fractured eye socket against Chicago. Griffin is a key reason the Redskins defense ranks third in yards allowed. He has 18 tackles and 1.5 sacks; he generally draws double teams, especially on running plays. Spitz started 14 games last year for Green Bay, but he did it at right guard; he has since lost his starting guard position to Junius Coston. Expect Spitz to get some help from left guard Daryn Colledge and Coston against Griffin.

Lame joke of the day

A Redskins fan, an Eagles fan and a Cowboys fan were on a cruise and the skip begins to sink. The Redskins fan shouts women and children to the life boats and starts passing out life jackets.

The Eagles fan says "Screw the women and children!" and jumps in the first life boat.

The Cowboys fan looks at his watch, starts unbuckling his belt and says "Are you sure we have time to do that."
