Mike Sellers says he'll play vs. Chicago

Only one player wasn't able to fully participate in the Redskins' practice session Friday: fullback Mike Sellers, who's been nursing a sore heel.

Redskins Coach Mike Shanahan said he'd make a final decision on Sellers's status this weekend but added, "I anticipate Mike going."

Sellers, who was limited every day this week, took the coach's words one step further and guaranteed that he'd play Sunday against the Bears.

Shanahan said everyone else, including tight end Chris Cooley, was able to practice Friday in what Shanahan calls a jog-through session.

Safety LaRon Landry was limited on Thursday because of a sore Achilles, but Shanahan didn't seem concerned.

"He's fine," the coach said.

Sellers has played well for the last couple games.

Just my opinion but I think the QB class next year is overrated. I see three elite pro ready QBs this year. Mallet, Locker and Luck. I heard that Luck will stay another year and Mallet and Locker might both be top ten.
There are a ton of good WR to draft this year, that prob wont be to popular around here but it might benefit us to draft a WR early even though it would be a luxury compared to some of our more pertinent needs. Also a ton of good RB should come out this year, if we dont snag one I would be shocked.

While tweaking McNabb's throwing motion, Redskins stress consistency


I'm on a soap box, so excuse the arrogance and spurious rhetoric.

I have nothing but respect for Donovan McNabb.

And I have nothing but the highest expectations as I truly believe he is an elite NFL quarterback.

And at the same time, looking ahead, what I think we all want is a consistent, strong 60 minute, well-managed game effort from him.

We all want more on target throws mixed in with the occasional poor decision or bad throw.

His performing the other way around in that regard is what annoys.

And I have the sense that if Mike Shanahan is annoyed enough, the name 'McNabb' and word 'trade' will both be in the same sentence.

Again.

Blessing in disguise. It's part of the team culture to play tough against the best teams, and make awful team look good like they got it going on. It's a total team effort, both sides of the ball typically play like c r a p against the worst teams in the league.

I'd say it's the poison that will make us stronger.

Next season, we'll play the AFC East, our division (NFC East), and a mix of other teams all based on this year's finish.

mcnabb would be more accurate with an improved o-line,

he would not be the best, but better

This is one of the ways that coaches should be judged. Gibbs One players always beat the teams they were supposed to beat. We haven't seen that since, but I'm betting Shanny will right the ship in that regard. If so, I hope he is here a long time.

Vincent Jackson

I'll take those three as my starting WR's...

Agreed. I would like Vincent Jackson, but not for draft picks. If he hits the open market and they don't Franchise him, then money!

The guy that interests me is Steve Breaston. Had some good numbers, but always under someone's shadow, Boldin last year and now just Fitzgerald. I think he could really break out in the right system.

MistaMoe:

"We all want more on target throws mixed in with the occasional poor decision or bad throw."


QBs don't play in a vacuum, but I get that they are supposed to be the offensive leader.

The reality is young QB's become shell-shocked behind shabby O-lines (thanks Steve Spurrier & Vinny!), and older QBs go from Pro-Bowler to ranked #24 in the league.

McNabb is the 4th most sacked QB in the NFL--and IMHO he's actually done an excellent job of avoiding sacks! Another QB would have taken a lot more sacks.

No QB is going to look elite behind an O-line that's not getting it done, an unpredictable run game, and lacking serious threats a wideout.

My main concern is that McNabb is unlikely to survive the season without better protection, and we'll hop right back on the QB carousel.

definetly not for draft pics...I'm not sure if they can Franchise him after this year....

11 other teams have given up as many sacks as us or more...some other teams that are close have only played 5 games...not sure why this keeps getting thrown around about all of our sacks against?

A point of interest:

from nfl.com,

Last week, the NFL Players Association recommended that Jackson and New England Patriots guard Logan Mankins, also a restricted free agent, report to their teams....

I won't beat the 'trade for VJAX' dead horse.

But I will jumo on the Go Get Logan Mankins Bandwagon.

I like jackson over breaston!!!

I like julio jones over breaston

I love jackson n jones!!!

I don't think we use our first rn pick on WR.

The way I see our FA n Draft

Rnd 1- NT. We need a young stud, vince wilfork or bj raji style player
Rnd 2- C. We again need youth on our line n a youmg stud for shanny n mcnabb to groom. Build the line from the inside out. Waybach says bye.
Rnd 5- WR/RB. Look for a guy in the mold of Dex McCluster. Fast explosive weapon, a bigger brandon banks mold
Rnd 6-CB. Rogers will walk in free agency, someone else can deal with his non turnovers
Rnd 7- ???? BPA

Free Agents
WR vincent Jackson- already has one offseason with mcnabb, n we seriously need a deep threat. Galloways been a non factor

LG- shanny will look for a zone guy with strength n speed. Lickensacker has been getting man handled

DE- carikker is solid for another year of two. We need a young stud to go opposite of him. Kendric golston is decent but should be more of a back up role.

Thoughts??

I would like us to maybe get a Vincent Jackson or Jacoby Jones. Heck! Why not both of them?!?! But I still want to see us drafting our own guys. I mean Julio Jones and AJ Green look to be beast at the next level. Still I want to see us upgrade the WR position totally. I like AA, but I think we should still bring in two more young, big guys, to compete with Malcolm Kelly next year.

Logan Minks is a FA next year, it would be wise to go after him. I think we already have our future Center. He is on practice squad. But we need Guards.

There not really any NT that are coming out that are all that this year. Marvin Asutin might be the best Dlineman but he is a stretch at NT, great DT though. The only NT that i really know of is this kid Kendrick Ellis for Hampton he was a transfer from South Carolina. If you know of any others give me a heads up however i dont think there is very much 1st round NT talent this year.

Posted by: Stu27 | October 22, 2010 2:52 PM | Report abuse

For the C/G keep an eye out for Mike Pouncey, he is the twin brother of Maurkice the center for the steelers. He played guard at Fla until his bro got paid then went pro since then he has moved to the center position. Big talented fast kid, played both G/C looks like the kinda kid we need to score.

Posted by: Stu27 | October 22, 2010 2:57 PM | Report abuse

I think the first two may be switched stu.

If we end up in the midle of the draft, which I suspect we will, I hope we trade back to the end of the frist, get our Center.

I don't care where these positions get drafted expect our lines. D line and o line need some help fast. I expect 2 new guy on each side of the ball.

I wouldn't worry about a draft next year until they have a CBA. Because most of the talent is in the underclassmen and without a CBA why would they come out early.

I think you are waaaay wrong about Carlos leaving. NT? I don't see any in college worth a first round. It would be a reach. Interior Oline in 1st couple rounds, either 1 or 2. The other may be a 3-4 LB depending on who's around when we pick. We'll go after another interior Oline guy and maybe a WR in free agency. Probably dline too.

If we go that route I say sturdivant, stud lb from north carolina

Then get wisenfiski or something like that, center from penn state.

Wr n lg should be addressed in Free Agency.

Hopefully carlos stays but he's gonna want a lot of money with a lot of desire for more production on the table
