Monday-Night H-Back

Hey there. I'm still alive, even after two nights in The Big Easy.
Was scrmabling around today - 6 am flight, had to watch Chloe in the morning, snuck in a nap and fought 90 minutes of traffic out to The Park - so I've been off-line all day.

I am sure you guys have dissected the win to death.

Obviously, both lines were huge. Best sustained QB pressure we've seen; and the O Line is straight up beating the snot out of people every week now.

I thought they showed some real guts with the game plan, and loved the intent to get the ball deep. Even when they didn't connect - that pass in the lights was a killer, that would've been lights out right there, so to speak - it kept the Saints honest and helped open some stuff up for the running game.

JC loves those crossing routes over the middle, and hit Cooley and Moss a few times on them. This offense just has a much different look with him there. He keeps impressing. The TD strike to Moss was perfect. He throws a great deep ball tot he back of the end zone, eh?

We'll see if the defense can keep this up. I think Griffin is finally close to 100 percent, and that makes all the difference in the world. Andre Carter is playing some ball every week now, too, and finally seems comfortable in his defense and new surroundings. Of all the moves last offseason, that was the one I though would really make a positive impact, and over time it just might.

But nothing in the last 48 hours impressed me more than this. Did you guys hear the bomb Coach Joe dropped on us at the press conferenc? There was a watershed moment when he was talking about Todd Wade and uttered my favorite adjective of all time - "super conscientious." That's what covering this team is all about, people. Where else are you going to find that.

Okay, I'll do better Tuesday, promise.

Cheers.

Glad you made it back safe. It was a great win that I wish had not helped the Cowboys but it shows a lot of promise for next year. The Skins have had the most talent on the offensive line for the past 3 years and they are finally showing it. It is a shame they could not run around like that early in the season. On top of that the defense is finally playing like they should.

Go Skins!

I'd like to take the opportunity to thank the 5 individuals who journeyed to New Orleans this week to help in our rebuilding effort. I had the opportunity to spend quality time with the group, and I can honestly say that these are some of the greatest people I have met in a real long time. Their selfless acts of humanity, small in the overall scheme of things, went a long way to helping restore the beautiful city of New Orleans. It is not so much what they did (which was a good bit for the couple days they were here!), but what it meant to the city on an emotional level. While I cannot speak for every resident, I hope they would all agree with me in saying: THANK YOU!

Each one of them is welcome back to New Orleans at anytime. I am proud of have had the opportunity to meet them and I gladly call each one of them a friend. They let me tag along with them to game, and we had a blast tailgating, meeting Saints fans, and watching the Skins win! It was an exciting game, and the atmosphere was beyond words. I have been a Skins fan for 15+ years, and this is the most fun I have had at a game or watching one! Again, my sincere thanks to an amazing group of people!

I mentioned to the group a book that was published after the storm by a writer for the local paper, Chris Rose. The book is a compilation of articles written during the storm, evacuation, and initial recovery stages. The book is very well done and when reading it, one can really get a good idea of what we went through down here, along with the real emotions felt by the people of New Orleans. The book is title "One Dead in the Attic."

P.S. Jason...it sounds like you had a true New Orleans experience! Believe me, after 5 ½ years of living here, it still happens to me from time to time!

Hi Jason. Was this win any kind of revelation for the players and/or coaches? Do they think they have it right now, or was this just a fluke win for a bad team? I gotta imagine that, even through this short-term joy, there's a huge sense of frustration about what could have been. There's easily four games that got away they had in their grasp. I mean, what a HUGE disappointment.

What's the latest on the Skins resigning Derrik Dockery? He's been a key blocker in the zone schemes. Any news with him?

Posted by: jerry | December 18, 2006 7:50 PM | Report abuse

Campbell throws a killer deep ball -- as well as anyone in the league. If Lloyd hadn't loss that ball in the lights, and if the Skins had a receiver who could outjump a d-back, he would have thrown at least three tds yesterday.

Still, he's a work in progress, that's for sure. His accuracy on certain routes is iffy, as is his footwork. Both things will get better with time and coaching -- which he obviously got none of when Gibbs and Saunders fought over their respective mancrushes, Brunell and Collins. Good job, guys. Snyder must be thrilled.

Speaking of coaching, Gibbs has been back for three years now and he still can't manage the clock -- it's ridiculous. And how many other coaches would have kicked a field goal on that opening drive fourth one and yesterday? None -- even Marty Schottenheimer has changed his conservative stripes.

Betts has impressed -- he looks like Priest Holmes all of a sudden. A perfect fit for Saunders system. Which makes the Duckett trade look even more stupid.

It's not the most pressing need, but I'm thinking the skins might need to go after a big receiver to compliment Moss. They need some size in the red zone and like I said before, to go snatch those beautiful deep balls out of the air. Bring back 50/50 -- he'd be better than Lloyd.

I'm not saying anything NEGATIVE today....it was a great SPORTS Sunday...my beloved Skins played a great game and got a great win....and the Saints (who I hope make it to the Super Bowl) won their division even though they lost. Not to mention the Wizards beating the Lakers and my man Gilbert Arenas ballin' for 60 points...it was a good day...

Posted by: Lisa | December 18, 2006 8:16 PM | Report abuse

*Another* receiver? OMG!

Here's my thesis on the Red Zone struggle. The coaches are not calling any of the quick short pass plays that we have fed on over the last couple of years, because that requires timing and supersmart decisionmaking before the snap. At this point, they want to either run the ball or give Campbell a chance to read the defense, because a couple of 96-yd interceptions start to make a QB feel a little less supersmart. But it will make him play his guts out as he tries to chase down a cornerback.

jason, or anyone else reading this, were you guys surprised at how often and by how much the skins receivers were getting open? the throws that ARE missed at the 2 minute warning, it seemed like no one was around these receivers. and when JC skipped a couple to moss...wide open, and ARE streaking towards the endzone with a couple of steps (that JC missed and on the very next play threw that beautiful beautiful pass to moss for td)

Was the NO secondary that bad? or is it good (borderline great) route running by ARE and Moss? (or may i dare suggest Al Saunders' offense?)

The play calling on the offense sucked. Man you arent going to play offs take some risks out there when its 4 and 1 etc. Jason lay off the Homer pills you get from George and Sonny. Please it is still the same old dysfunctional Skins with a bunch of geriatic old guys who have to take breaks from watching film to change their Depends and take their medication. Game has passed Gibbs and all the old guys by. Snyder needs to get out of the same sex strip clubs with Cruise and can the whole staff! You never come back!

A stat that caught my eye when I looked at the box score. The 5 Skins that caught passes all averaged over 12 yards a catch. This is not Mark Brunell football anymore. A quick look over the completions and only 3 of the 13 were for under 10 yards. 5 games in and Jason is obviously not a good QB yet. But he will get better and may get a lot better. Running the ball hard with a QB that is improving and can throw downfield. It has potential ...

Posted by: Lisa | December 18, 2006 9:13 PM | Report abuse

Are you trying to win games, or give Campbell experience? I do not understand this criticism of the coaches; if we were fighting for a playoff spot, that'd be one thing, but we're fighting for the fifth draft pick!

Posted by: cload and daggar | December 18, 2006 9:23 PM | Report abuse

vaherder - The comebacks by Parcells and Vermiel went pretty well. It should be easier for coaches than for players.

Game was great but frustrating. Where was this defense at the beginning of the season? That said - can they continue the effort or will this be another one win streak like the rest of the year? When they play a game like this on defense it just illustrates the lack of effort in most of the games this season.

I agree with Jason about Carter. He has shown steady improvement this year playing a tough position with very little linebacker support on his side. That tackle of Bush after chasing him all the way across the field was amazing.

Consecutive red zone procedure penalties was another major blunder. At least it was not the same player both times.

Here's hoping that they can put forth another good effort on the road. St. Louis is still in the running for a playoff spot and this game will be a good indicator of what the skins can accomplish. The last home game will be the real deal - they really owe the Giants and if they don't at least play well it will leave a real bad taste in everyones mouth for the entire off season.

Looking forward to the next game.

While it was a win, it was not very satisfying. I am aggravated at Howard and all the coaches spinning this into a catalyst for keeping the dysfunction together.

They barely won. Against a team that was woeful last year, and got on a streak this year. This game means nothing, even less than nothing. Carlos Rogers had 13 awful games and one good one, this is not "narrowly missing the pro-bowl" as some would have us believe. This qualifies you as a taxi squad practice player on defenses like Chicago and New England.

Stop the spin and hand out season stat sheets with big bold 5-9 stickers on the top.

Are folks seriously whining that we either didn't win right, or that the win was bad? I mean, really, what planet are you from?

If they run the table and this free agent class begins to demonstrate why they were brought to DC, doesn't that mean something? While we know that Archuleta's time in DC is done, what if the other guys start playing with renewed passion and fervor? What if we knock the Giants out of the playoffs?

These are all good things.

I can't stand Kobe Bryant. LA fans suck! I lived there for 6 years and the only time most anyone cared was when the teams did well. When the Lakers were winning championships there were five gajillion little car flags all over the place but none before or after.
For every real fan in LA there's about 100 poseurs. The NFL is salivating to get a team into the media market there but they shouldn't waste their time or money. Angelenos could care less except for the Latino guys from East LA who are 30 year Dodger fans. Those guys rock! "Go Dohyers!" is the best chant in LA sports.

I'm sorry for the rant. . .Lisa thanks for the Arenas update as you can see it set me off.

Still we've got some mojo right now. Nothing flashy just solid playing and hints of goodness with subtexts of greatness from Soups. All good for next year as long as the FO doesn't lose it's head again in the offseason.

Dealer - Omar is the guy who stole the stash and has the big scar down his face. He is absolutely hands down the best character on TV as I said before he's got the seductive sociopath like Hannibal Lecter. He needs an award.

It's a great show but does require you to commit for a while to get the flow. I'd love to see a "cameo" from a Marion Barry although there was a scene this season of the mayor getting a BJ in the office. . .as I recall Barry got that gift in jail. God I hate that man!

skins and Dock are not close right now.
dealer - there are more original, thoughtful "good characters" on the Wire than any other show. Randy? Bubs? McNalty? Brody?
Need I go on.
What you mention - the lack of black and white, the subtlely of the show, how it builds characters slowly over time, it's spot-on realism - is precisely why it is the best thing on TV.
Anyone who has followed it from the first episode would tell you so.
To see how each season evolved from the start is pretty amazing.

As for the win, they seem to have a blue print. This will be a miserable season no matter what, and I think our coverage has shown that, but that was a pretty big win for them. Now, if they lay an egg in STL, then yeah, we'll smack them around in print.
I could see them finishing 3-0.
And, I agree, so what? It's a lost season.
But with the kid QB in particular, I thinj finding a way to finish like 4-3 with a first-time starter would give them a lot to take into the offseason.

I have to say I stopped watching the NBA some years ago. It is boring boring boring with a few exceptions. Having played team sports for years including bball I get so tired and bored watching the endless dunks and slams and give me the ball so I can make the highlight reel crap.
The fight at the Garden is a prime example of how rotten pro bball is to me. These guys are millionaires playing an effin game and instead of acting like grown-ups they get into these ridiculous turf wars over nothing! It's the same stupid mentality like TO spitting in the face.

Then he ran my hometown - the city I still think of as my city into the ground and we're only just now starting to emerge a bit. And B#2 he made me cross party lines for the one and only time in my life. I actually cried in the voting booth when I had to vote for the Republican (mind you she'd have been a lefty liberal in every other city in the country except here in SF and in the People's Republic of Berkeley) because I couldn't vote for a guy who got smoking crack. I know I am a total dork but my politics are like my football - fun, love, but gut wrenching.

As for the win, cannot you be proud and happy that it was over a team that is going to the playoffs? (which for the 12th time in 14 years, the Skins are not) One that won a division title. (Again, the Skins have one since 1991).

I, for one, am happy to 1) see that the Skins have returned to smash-mouth/Gibbs football and 2) a defense that played with all out abandon. (Did you see some of those tackles?). That was 2004 all over again. Whether that will hold remains to be seen. I prefer to see the cup as half full.

sfskin,

The Reaper was not suspended after spitting on Pittman in Tampa last season but he was automatically EJECTED from the game when it happened....then fined. TO was not tossed....don't think the officials saw it but I understand Hall complained to them about it. What blows my mind about TO (actually should not surprise me) is how nonchalant he was about it....said he was frustrated and that he has moved on. This was in an interview with the NFL Network crew immediately after the game. It was a weird interview....Deion asked him if he realized how bad it was to do that...TO replied like a child "well, he was bugging me" - the other guys (Eisen & Mariucci) just sat there for a few awkward seconds before Mooch changed the subject. Today I heard that TO said the "spitting' was not intentional....how could it not be intentional?

At least the Reaper was only a second year player - TO has been in the league long enough to truly know better.

There was an article in the NY Times last week that said whatever you do, do it consistently.

So if you're using the whiskey finger to put the baby to sleep at night, you have to do it every night!

Seriously, though, my wife keeps the little lass on a fairly strict bedtime routine that is very repetitive and boring for us but lets the baby know that it's time to chill out.

Do you think that Wades performance on Sunday exposes JJ? I hate to break up our line but we could use the cap room.

Posted by: Skinz | December 19, 2006 10:05 AM | Report abuse

Skinz,

Wade was definitely good on Sunday. I think we need to see how he does against a real monster DE like Strahan before we start talking about letting Jansen go. Also, JJ has not been 100% the past couple of seasons. He certainly hasn't hurt the line, but I do understand he's got a big cap number for a guy who isn't what he was 3-4 years ago. Tough call right now, I think.

Posted by: FromTheICU | December 19, 2006 10:12 AM | Report abuse

Yeah, Jansen is probably my favorite player on the team. Guy is a career Redskin and played hurt even when the team was crap. I feel loyalty to him.

Having said all that Samuels, Jansen and Thomas are all old and I'd rather not replace them all at the same time when Soup is 27-28 and in his prime. That will probably be when Portis and Moss are in their prime as well.

Posted by: Skinz | December 19, 2006 10:21 AM | Report abuse

Rabach is no spring chicken either, same age as Samuels (29 now). Truly, the only young'un is Dock, and he's a FA at the end of the season. That being said, OLinemen can stay pretty productive (especially run blocking) until 33, 34 or so. So there's still a decent window, but will close fast if there aren't great results in the next year or two.

Posted by: FromTheICU | December 19, 2006 10:28 AM | Report abuse

I'm surprised it took this long for the "Wade should start" and "Dump Jansen" posts. I guarantee a few "trade Jansen for a DB" posts, too.

Please, people. Wade is not better than Jansen. He's what other teams call "depth." We haven't seen too many capable backups around here in the past several years, so the misinterpretation is understandable.

Posted by: Joe in Raleigh | December 19, 2006 10:29 AM | Report abuse

I totally agree, Joe... Wade is just as old as Jansen too. Plus, he's called a "journeyman" for a reason.

Posted by: FromTheICU | December 19, 2006 10:32 AM | Report abuse

I agree Joe. I'm not suggesting that we can dump JJ for Wade. 1 game a career does not make. It's not unreasonable to look at Jansen's cap number and thik maybe there is a better deal out there.

The Portis thing is nuts though. I think people are discounting what Soups long ball threat has done to help our running game. Something that Portis hasn't benefitted from the last 2 years.

Posted by: Skinz | December 19, 2006 10:33 AM | Report abuse

It was grea to see a backup Olineman come in that wasn't named Ray Brown, as great a guy as he is and all. I thought it was a very good sign that they had someone to step in and play well, what a novel concept. But I'm really hoping that as the line ages they can replace them one by one to maintain as much continuity as possible.

Please redskins dont give away your draft picks anymore. We dont need to overhaul the team. I think our offense is set for at least couple of years. All we need is a D Line, CB, safety and LB which can be easily accomplished by draft picks.

Skinz, to be sure, the Redskins may ask JJ to restructure his deal to provide some cap relief (if its nature allows) based on his injuries/performance over the past couple of seasons.

At any rate, this type of thing only underscores the value of the draft and USING your draft picks.

What a difference a weekend makes. I really enjoyed watching that game -- not geeked and tweaked like earlier in the season when I had ridiculous expectations, but rather pleasantly surprised. I want THIS line up to start next year (with the insertion of Clinton Portis). With this O-line (large and good in zone blocking), they are set to be a two RB-based offense. That is Redskins football.

Now I'm worried about losing Dockery. I figure that Pucillo and Wade are THE back-up O-lineman (FINALLY, by Week 14). Wade is monster big. Pucillo, who would have been starting this season (even though it would have been the Browns)is our utility lineman/center/blocking tight end. MUST SIGN DOCKERY. Otherwise, I say its time to built on stability. Work RockyMac into the lineup. Bring in another corner (1st round or FA). Train up either Doughty or Fox -- non-flashy, low profile, solid, dependable safety. I'm good to go for next season with those tweaks (wish list is a healthy Cornelius ... plus Cornelius insurance).

All the news was about how bad the NFC is, focusing on how bad the Saints are. The ONLY writer to give the Skins any cred was Peter King. The world is upside down. He also pegged Grilliams as coach of the week and BRUNELL as QB of the week. Brunell? Yes, Brunell, based on a quote from Grilliams that it was Brunell, playing the practice squad QB, and perfectly replicated how Brees chooses his receivers. [I never thought about the difference it would make for a defense to prepare with a 3rd string QB scrub compared to a multi-year veteran.] That seemed interesting to me.

My other favorite thing about the weekend was Deion Saunders lecturing T.O. T.O. would not make eye contact with him (which probably was good for Deion b/c I imagine a goober might have been welling up in T.O.'s mouth).

Posted by: dcsween | December 19, 2006 10:47 AM | Report abuse

Exactly. Does anyone actually believe we would have won this game if #8 was still the QB? The difference, to me, is:
1A: Campbell
1B: the return of the running game.

I'm interested in seeing how they work Portis and Betts together next season. That could be a tough combination. Sucks for fantasy footballers, though.

Posted by: Joe in Raleigh | December 19, 2006 10:49 AM | Report abuse

Joe in Raleigh, I don't think it necessarily sucks for fantasy owners for a two-back, running based offense. LJ put up some large numbers in the SAUNDERS offense when the pre-injury Priest Holmes also was putting up great numbers. I don't know which would be LJ and which Holmes, but those guys were at different stages of their careers. CP and Betts are still comparatively young, just hitting prime now, in the same season.

The Portis thing is nuts though.

really, i'm about to start calling bad names @ people suggesting that portis isn't 10 times better/quicker/faster/non-fumbler than betts. please people stop it! it's nonsensical(is that a word?) to compare betts to portis.

if portis had "character" issues then i could understand this nonsense but he's cool man! his only fatal flaw is that he doesn't know when to quit. like the play that ended his season in the preseason. thank you #8!!!! great job!

Also, nothing says that Jansen could/should ever be considered as anything as a Skins tackle. Nothing wrong with a little healthy competition (or even rotation, though I'm not sure about how badly rotation affects O-line chemistry). In the same way that Renaldo Wynn changed from being a starter to a not starter, there is no reason to think about Jansen remaining a Redskin for his career.

Also, someone referred to Todd Wade as a journeyman. I don't think that term is quite accurate b/c prior to this year, he was a career Texan (rather than bouncing around the league like some of our journeymen pickups).

Posted by: dcsween | December 19, 2006 10:59 AM | Report abuse

meant to say that Jason should not be considered as anything other than a Skins tackle. typed too fast

Posted by: dcsween | December 19, 2006 11:06 AM | Report abuse

Yeah Wade isn't a journeyman. He has started pretty much his whole career. (Albeit for the worst O-line in the league).

Joe, I'd take it a step further. I think the running game is better because Cambell is in there. Which in turn is helping Cambell.

If anyone thinks this O isn't completely different with Soup in is crazy. The points are being posted but that's settling for FG's rather than TD's.

Redzone offense takes time to gel. If you don't believe me just look at the Colts yesterday and Brunell at the end of last year.

4-12/Dealer and whoever has newborns.

The book is called Baby Wise by Gary Ezzo. It is available online at Walmart.

I have a 3 yr old who we didn't use the book and it was a nightmare. It took almost nine months before she slept through the night.

With girl number two who is ten months she was sleeping through the night at 3 months old with that book.

Some moms hate it and think it's wrong but hey it worked for us and my wife recommends it to everyone.

It's basically getting them asleep early and on a consistent schedule and letting them cry to sleep. It sucks when you first try it but it works.

From PFW (sounds like Redskin One will be fueled and ready to go yet again):

• Redskins sources indicate the team is likely to ask several veterans -- perhaps CB Shawn Springs, QB Mark Brunell, DE Renaldo Wynn and ORT Jon Jansen -- to redo their deals in order to clear up cap space to make a run at some free-agent defenders. The apple of their eye reportedly is Bills CB Nate Clements.

better to have then crying when you are awake vs. crying in the middle of the night.

so if Clements is signed, one of the two following scenarios is likely:

1. cut shawn springs because of his big cap #.

2. restructure springs, bench rogers (effectively ending his skins tenure), start springs and clements

3. same as #2, except wait for springs to get injured, then start rogers/clements, which will end springs' career...as a redskin, at least.

other scenarios possible, but those three are the ones that stand out the most. which do you think happens?

I don't have any kids but I do have a dog. Here is what I do.

Get a crate and put it where you can't hear them whine at night. Wake up every 3 hours when they infants and take them out side to relieve themselves. Once they hit 3 months you can wake up every 5 hours or so.

Then take them out right before you go to work. Come back around 12 let them out of the crate and take them for a walk.

Once they get old enough get a doggy door. (in your case call it a kiddie door or people might think you are being inhumane.)

Sorry, that last post went from pathos to bathos. A bit too earnest, I guess. But from the heart, yo!
---
k-man's post really got me thinking about the corners. I am of course rooting for Clements because he has the best name out there.

Whether it's Clements or someone else, make no mistake, we are going to land a starting CB in free agency. I heard Redskins One was out at Leesburg airport this morning practicing touch-and-go landings to get ready for the offseason; the pilot was described as "super flight proficient".

My hope is that Springs restructures and stays. He still brings it every week but won't be a top CB forever. I would be much happier with Springs and the FA-CB-TBA as the #1 and #2, and with Rogers stepping back into the #3 role for at least one season. If we can afford it, that would be best for next year, IMO.

Did anyone else read dcsween's post and find something eerie and sad about this little nugget: "non-flashy, low profile, solid, dependable safety". We had a dude like that once. His name was Ryan Clark.

Good call, ICU. Keep forgetting about Praline. As I recall, he is solid, exactly the kind of guy we need.

I would like to thank Skinz for recognizing how hard I rep Glover Park.

You are right about that bro. Somebody needs to tell these coaching staff "NO". No more dumb moves like Duckett and Brandon Lloyd. Randle El deal also sucks. He doesn't deserve the kind of money just to return punts and occasionaly a pass throw. I still feel sick thinking about giving a 3rd and 4th draft pick for Brandon.

That is like the perfect combination...a hot girl who will sit and watch the game with you? Add a few beers to that and we are talking paradise!

am i the only one who thinks that that's overrated?
