We've played the first 4 games, we are 2-2. Next four opponents are Packer, Colt, Bears and Lions. With Shanahan's realization of the importance of Haynesworth in this defense, call me crazy if you want, I see a 3-1 record in the next four, and the one loss will be to the Bears or Lions not Packs or Colts. I also expect Haynesworth first sack against the Packs. I wouldn't be surprised if Aaron Rogers is knocked out of the game. Can someone tell Laron Landry to stop hitting his team-mates when he tackles? Finally, it will be a crime if Brandon Banks is not a permanent feature on the special teams and occasionally on offense.

Portis had an MRI Monday. But Shanahan he seemed to know on Sunday that something was wrong.

"Usually a guy like that doesn't go out of the game," said Shanahan, who also coached Portis in Denver in 2002-03. "He stays in as long as he can."

WTF is up with the Portis injury? Is the dude done for the season or just for the week? Knowing Shanahan, he's just putting up a smoke screen and Portis will be a game day active, and WaPo would still be showing stupid podcasts of last week's game summary...

knew this about Hall,but did not think he ranked this bad
FRom ESPN
If you expected more out of DeAngelo Hall's defense, then you haven't been following DeAngelo Hall's career. Football Outsiders' charting project tracks how often each cornerback in the league is targeted, and how many completions they allow. In the past five seasons, Hall has ranked among the top 30 cornerbacks in success rate just once, in 2006 -- when he ranked 29th. Though his gambling style and legit ball skills have led to plenty of big plays, he's an average cornerback at best.

So the Eagles can't stop the run, and Washington can't stop the pass.

I'm thinking no way- swapping TOny Armstrong for Josephus the Elder alone is a dozen yr difference. Torain 5 yrs younger than Portis, Lorenzo 4-5 yrs younger than Carter. Fresh blood!!

BTW, Lorenzo Alexander has to be one of my favorite players in the league. He reminds of the utility guys Pittsburgh and New England seem to always find- not hi profile, not All-Pro, but just get it done at a variety of roles. Love LA.

I think calling Hall an average cover corner is being too kind. (The 30th best?) He's a big play maker who has to have his deficiencies covered up by the scheme. I'm sure Manning won't hesitate to throw on him.

So the cowboy's are ranked ahead of us even though we beat them and have a better record.

Just plain duuuumb.

Posted by: ash10 | October 5, 2010 2:26 PM |

Dude - let me explain dumb to you.

1. Rankings treat most recent performance as a better indicator of relative strength than past performance.

2. The Skins just barely beat at home in week 1 a disorganized Cow team that gift-wrapped the game for them.

3. In the Cows' last game they beat a team on the road that the Skins couldn't beat at home the previous week.

4. The Cows dominated the Texans (three turnovers, four sacks). The Skins have a better record but both their wins are of the just-squeaked-by-by-the-Skin-of-their-tooths variety. Also, the Skins lost to the lowly Ramsters.

5. The Cows were ranked much higher than the Skins at the beginning of a season that is still young.

Does that make sense to you or are we still at duuuuuumb?

Posted by: CrimeScene | October 5, 2010 6:27 PM | Report abuse

I just watched the game again (DVR) with emphasis on watching a few specific players. Specifically Heyer, Haynesworth, and Sellers. Mainly because I have been critical of these guys so here goes: Heyer did a great job of sealing off blocks when the run was to his side. There was one play where FD had the outside. He did a great job of sealing it, Heyer chipped and then cut back and knocked off a linebacker in pursuit. Result? Large gain. He did this a couple of times. For all his deficiencies in pass defense he is pretty good in the run.

Sellers. A number of people have been dogging him but his run blocking in this game was stellar. That big run by Torrain? Watch it again and see who leads the way. Sellers pancakes a LB before Torrain trucks the safety. I watched Sellers do that multiple times during the game.

Haynesworth: this guy was a disruptor. If he wasn't making the play he was moving the pocket. Of course there was the odd play where he was 30 yards behind it walking off the field but that's what you get.

Still no word on Portis? I suspect this means the news is bad and they didn't want to release it until they got a second opinion. I hope they worked out a few running backs today and will sign one tomorrow. Ryan Torain looks like the real deal, but the knock against him is he cannot stay healthy. With Portis down, there's Torain and Chad Simpson - who has not palyed as a Redskin - on the roster, and then Mike Sellers has to line up as the running back. Expect to see them elevate Keiland Williams tomorrow if they didn't find someone better today...

Hey Scamp,

Like your analysis re: Haynesworth, Sellars, Heyer. I tried telling Beantowngreg that actually watching the games leads to more insightful analysis. I think he was too busy sobbing over Devin Thomas to pay any attention.
As for health care reform, here's a little of what's been implemented so far. It might make your crappy HMO slightly less crappy.

Insurers can no longer:

"For better or not, our offense takes what the defense gives us."


The cowboys let us throw while we watched them pass instead of run.

And we won.

The texans encouraged us to pass.

And we did, and just lost.

The rams encouraged us to go deep.

And we did, and lost.

The iggles encouraged us to run.

And we did, and beat them like they were a bunch of green-painted children.

The Packers can stop the run, the pass, blitz, and their D can score.

So what do we do?

Screen passes? Draw plays?

And block some dude named Clay Matthews, jr. (while controlling someother dude named Aaron Rodgers).

And blocking Matthews is really the main thing we have to do to win.

That and out pass Aaron Rodgers.

The big question at RB is who will be the backup this week. Will they give Chad Simpson a chance for some carries? Will they bring K. Williams back up from the practice squad? If so, who will they cut to make room for him on the roster? Will they bring back L.J. or Parker?

I have a hunch that we will see the return of L.J.

Report: Randy Moss on trade block?

The New England Patriots are in talks to trade wide receiver Randy Moss to the Minnesota Vikings, FoxSports.com reported on Tuesday, citing unnamed sources.

The deal is being held up because Moss would have to sign an extension with the Vikings, according to the report. Contract talks have not even begun, a league source told Profootballtalk.com Tuesday night.

The seven-time Pro Bowl receiver is in the final year of his four-year deal with New England and has voiced his displeasure at his limbo status.


If this happens Moss, Boldin, Housh, Clayton, Crayton and we'll throw in T.O. have all moved and guys like Bryant, Hernandez, and Shipley drafted while the redskins hunger for a solid, premier wide out.

VJAX is out there, y'all.

beantowngina spent last week defending Portis for QUITTING on a play and was hoping for a moral victory against the Eagles. This week she had a hissy fit as the love of her life DT has continued to look like Tarzan and play like Jane and isn't GIVEN playing time.
It's all give and no take with Gina. Maybe if she had balls she would know what it's like to bust em and be busted. For Pete's sake, my 10 year old Jack Russell has seen more of this year's games.

Per PFT

Pats say "there is no trade"
Posted by Mike Florio on October 5, 2010 8:53 PM ET
Rumor quickly became reality on Tuesday night, with FOX's Jay Glazer reporting that the Patriots are close to shipping receiver Randy Moss back to the Vikings.

Now, the Minnesota and Boston media are pursuing the story like Homer chasing a chocolate-filled Uter with a wet towel.

Ian Rapoport of the Boston Herald reports that the Patriots are saying "there is no trade." In this regard, conjugation could be critical. They're not saying "there will be no trade." They're only saying "there is no trade." And Glazer hasn't reported that there "is" a trade.

Rapoport also reports that he's told a trade is not "done," but he confirms that a trade is being discussed.

Albert Breer, formerly of the Boston Globe and now with NFL Network (congrats, by the way, Mr. Breer) reports that "no one is shooting this down, when given the chance to" and "[s]omething's happening."

So stay tuned. We'll be on this thing all night if need be.

After all, that kid has bosoms.

If was traded to the vikes, wonder what the compensation would be...Dude is a great player and skins would have the 2xMoss if they made a trade...

Mine have gone up. Everyone's will grow up. These things aren't free -- someone has to pay for them.

And many companies now are refusing to write new policies for any children since they can't exclude pre-existing conditions. This provision would allow parents to wait until their children become seriously ill before buying insurance.

I'll go with the fact that can't beat out a 39 yr old, 27 year old rookie, and a journeyman.

I'm not sure DT would have ran the right route or that he would have caught the ball. His hands are as suspect as his work ethic.

Brandon Lloyd had the worst season in the Super Bowl Era with 12 starts and only 23 catches. DT had 10 starts with 14 games played last year and had 25.

Interesting stuff from hogshaven. They're not who we thought they were? Peace out for tonight...

LT Chad Clifton's knees have been failing and 1st round draft Bryan Bryan Bulaga has seen some action (Hello, Orakpo). Thank God he did not sign with us.

The Packers' Special Teams have been atrocious.
- Bears Game: Gave up a punt return for a TD, had a FG blocked, kickoff out of bounds, 35-yard muffed punt that was returned 28 yards, and 2 ST penalties.
- Lions Game: 2 fumbles lost by kickoff returner Jordy Nelson and a botched punt by Tim Masthay, who dropped the snap and then kicked it 21 yards out of bounds.

Packers Defense is giving up a 31st ranked 5.2 rushing yards a carry.

Packers are ranked 19th in total offense (321.2 yards a game). Your Washington Redskins are ranked 17th (328.2).

Redskins rushing game is much better than the Packers. Packers average 3.9 yards a carry to the Redskins 4.3...and the Packers have yet to rush the ball once over 20 yards. (Obviously, this hurts with Portis out since he is our leading rusher on yards per carry).

Nick Barnett, who plays Rocky's role in LB for the Packers, injured his wrist and played in a cast vs Lions. His backup, Brandon Chillar, injured his shoulder seriously, which is important since he is one of their better pass coverage LBs.

Packers TD/INT ratio is 8-5, Redskins is 3-2. Carlos, get the pine tar out.

Packers rank 7th highest with 29 penalties
Redskins turnover ratio is +3 to the Packers -1.

Not true. Under the new healthcare law small businesses (and many individuals operating as LLCs and PCs will qualify as such) do get to write off the cost of heathcare extended to their employees.

He didn't and now you are buying the propoganda because you are a fuking moron. I always thought you were a straight shooter on here until now. Just listen to yourself "That wasn't the plan that was passed." So he lied, they lied, and you slurped it up. What a d0uche.

Here is a link explaining some of what I am talking about regarding the assistance available to small businesses under the new healthcare law: http://www.aarp.org/health/health-care-reform/info-09-2010/small_business_owners_or.html

A tax credit is not the same thing as writing off all of your healthcare costs. A credit is a certain amount, it probably won't cover all the expenses that you can write off now. Notice, the more employees you have, the less you are eligible for.
Anyways, enoough of this. I really don't like political fighting on this blog anymore because I really like most of you guys up here and this makes it too touchy. Politics and religion on the blog... no thanks. So my apologies to all for getting in to this.

Give it a rest billy goats. Take the political BS somewhere else.

We can all agree to disagree, kick the tires on some foosball talk, ita the political sjk, and get away from everything not centered around a 53 man roster, 100 yd field, and the BnG...

You're right, I shouldn't have assumed that you were a straight shooter. Clearly that was incorrect. Everyone with a TV heard what Obama said and that crap you came up with is off the wall garbage. Not even a hint of shame in your lies. Sorry dude, you can take your crap to some other flunkie cause I ain't buyin' it.

I think Green Bay is beatable. Some of those reasons RLBs posted are legitimate. I think we win at least one of the next 2. The Colts are looking a little punch drunk now too. I guess I refilled my Kool Aid thermos.

Yea, I'm good. I think the Green Bay game is going to require dedication to the run. I know their front 7 is good but I think their defense is better against the pass. The secondary is strong so we are gonna have to pound the rock.

any news on Trent Williams? Really hope he's ready to roll come Sunday. Kinda need him in there, pretty tough stretch coming up.

Posted by: Notorious_LMG | October 5, 2010 11:58 PM | Report abuse

Trent isn't making any progress. His Health Insurance, because of Obamacare, booted him off his plan. Trent isn't able to get the proper treatment he needs.

However, Dan Snyder, as we saw in that oh-so-riveting ESPN piece, is going to pass the collection plate around the stadium at the next home game to help raise funds to help Trent get the proper treatment he deserves.

before I call it, there might be some laughter at the expense of the Chargers coming soon.

SD had a chance to ship VJax out of the AFC, meaning he couldn't hurt the Chargers much in the future. But ... if the Pats send Randy Moss away, VJax might want to head to New England. Won't happen this year, because no way the Chargers trade him there.

But ... in 2011, assuming VJax becomes a FA and doesn't care about every last $$, I could see him wanting to play with Brady and across from Welker. In that scenario, SD gets almost nothing for VJax, and he'll be an obstacle to the Chargers, especially in the postseason.

ESPN aired this puff piece on Snyder where we learn that he has fought the big C, the loss of his father, and darn it, as hard as he tries, he just doesn't seem to be able to crack that glass ceiling that keeps his grubby little paws off the Lombardi. Poor boy. Boo hoo. Well fork the mofo. I ain't ever gonna feel sorry for some jackwad $$$ billionaire like him that feckin ESPN wants us to believe is carrying the weight of the world around on his shoulders.

Posted by: CrimeScene | October 5, 2010 8:12 PM


While I agree that this puff piece was almost designed to make Snyder a more sympathetic figure, I don't think it necessarily "wants us to believe Snyder is carrying the weight of the world around on his shoulders". To me, it was just putting a human face to a guy that has mostly lurked around in the shadows and allowed public perception to dictate his reputation.

What I got out of it is another reminder that Snyder is painfully awkward in front of cameras, and publicly in general. There's a really good reason why he doesn't grant interviews...he doesn't come off looking good with all the "ums" and "uhhs" and hand-wringing he does. All of the gameday footage they got of him he was b*tching to get the mic off him. Not good for a guy who's supposed to be the public face of your organization.

The only good I got out of that was that Snyder has failed A LOT in his life and he always seems to come out on top--whether you're rooting for him or not. Cancer, failed business ventures--he goes down but he doesn't stay there. Here's hoping that trend continues with the Redskins...

That NBD video is great...not much of a Chris Paul fan but he actually made me laugh there.

And for those of you trying to get in on the Moss sweepstakes...just stop it. Half of you hated the McNabb deal and then said 'no' to VJ (who is about 5 or 6 years younger, BTW), now burning a 1st rounder for Moss is the right plan? No chance. Dude is the antithesis of a Shanahan-type WR...doesn't block, doesn't go over the middle, tips off the defense on what's coming by half-assing it on run plays. NO THANKS...

From John Keim at the Examiner:

Five questions facing the Redskins this week

1. Can the ground game survive minus Clinton Portis? Sure, for a time. Any team would be in a bad spot minus its top running back for a while. Where the Redskins help themselves is with the design of plays. They ran well in the fourth quarter with two backup linemen in Philadelphia. The two tight-end sets helped as did fullback Mike Sellers having a strong day. That enables Washington to maintain a commitment to the run. That’s a necessity with a play-action passing game.

2. Can they score enough to beat the Packers? Not if they throw the ball the way they did in Philadelphia. The Redskins have wasted too many opportunities this season, partly because of the inconsistent passing attack. Donovan McNabb is better on the move and improvising. But it’s clear that there are certain receivers he doesn’t yet trust; and two that he does (Santana Moss and Chris Cooley). It’s tough to know week to week what the passing game will yield.

3. How much difference will Trent Williams make? Assuming he returns — Mike Shanahan said he expects him to practice Wednesday — he will help. Stephon Heyer had some good moments vs. the Eagles … really, he did. But he also had some dreadful moments and three more penalties. He received a lot more help than Williams ever will. His ability to quickly recover will be tested this week by Clay Matthews Jr.

4. How can they slow Aaron Rodgers? Green Bay is struggling at both tackle spots, so if they can pressure with four rushers they’ll improve their chances. The Packers have no running game but plenty of receiving talent. If the Redskins return to heavy blitzing, they’ll surrender too many big plays. The Redskins must control the game on the ground.

5. Did the Redskins defense turn a corner? Yes, Michael Vick’s injury helped. But they were more patient and disciplined than in the first three games. Before, they had many soft spots and looked confused. They are starting to make subtle changes and the defense is helped with Lorenzo Alexander as the full-time starter at outside linebacker and Andre Carter helping more as a rush end. An energetic Albert Haynesworth makes a huge difference. Still, more proof is needed.

Posted by: hessone | October 5, 2010 11:16 PM

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHHAHAHAHA!

IG-know-rant.

I've canoed down the Rio Grande, Hessone. They aint sealing no border. Especially if they're cutting taxes.

Might help to know SOMETHING... ANYTHING... before you start ranting. Stick to the Redskins. We are all way more informed about the Redskins than the effects of the "Bush" tax cuts. I liked when Bush mailed me my check for $300. I mean, I realize I was supposed to go shopping with it, but I just paid bills with it.

The problem is: We are a consumer driven economy. That means: We have to have money to keep buying garbage that was made in China. If we can't afford to spend, or decide to save instead, the economy stagnates.

Interesting tidbit: We ran out of disposable income as a population a long time ago. But, THANK GOD, King Credit showed up and bought us another decade or so. Guess what: That's dried up, too. Now, we're in a pickle.

It aint got sh!t to do with the borders. If they wanted a national ID card instituted and locked up employers who hired anyone without one, illegals would leave. Again, the economy. You want to pay for a Big Mac made by an American who depends on that job to pay for an apartment, a cell phone, gas, car insurance, health insurance, utilities, and food? Say goodbye to the Dollar Menu. Go hire an American to mow your lawn or clean your office at night.

Not gonna happen.

By the way, be careful what you wish for, because if the illegals aren't being hired for all these junk jobs, Americans WILL do them, but they will be "organizing" into Unions and they'll want a pension, a 401K, vacation days, sick leave, and steady hours.

From the tone of your post, I don't think you'd want that.

By the way, somebody said Torain will go for 1300 yards this year, to which I replied, "You're Crazy."

Well, maybe you're not THAT crazy after all. I hope you're right, actually.

good morning brown, thanks for watching snyder for me. I'm sure he has a good side to him, but if you're going to run big business and be successful, you'll need to screw folks over. Snyder has handled the business part of the Skins nicely, but the personel part he hasn't and I think he just hired the wrong folks over the years.
inject human emotion into the decisions he's made (he's a big fan of the team) and it's no wonder we've been stuck in neutral for a decade. HTTR !
