Redskins list four as questionable for Sunday

The Redskins have listed four players as questionable on their final injury report before Sunday's game against the Houston Texans: Albert Haynesworth (ankle), Donovan McNabb (ankle), Clinton Portis (wrist) and Perry Riley (foot).

McNabb was able to fully participate in all of the team's practices this week, as was Portis.

As for Haynesworth, the big defensive linemen sprained an ankle during practice on Wednesday and was limited for two days. But Coach Mike Shanahan said Haynesworth was able to practice on Friday, though he wouldn't discuss his status for Sunday's game.

Safety Kareem Moore was listed as doubtful, though Shanahan said earlier Friday that Moore would not play on Sunday.

The Texans listed two players as questionable on the injury report: cornerback Antwuan Molden (ankle) and defensive tackle Amobi Okoye (ankle). Listed as probable for Houston: Dominique Barber, Duane Brown, Owen Daniels, Vonta Leach, Neil Rackers, Antonio Smith, Kevin Walter, Mario Williams and Eugene Wilson.

The Redskins' defense could be "scary with the way we can dominate when we're all flying around and Has is pushing it the way he does," top cornerback DeAngelo Hall said. "But it's also scary what we could give up on a play if everything isn't just right.


Sounds like DHall got a copy of my season preview edition of ZEKE'S UNIQUE PERSPECTIVES

"Haslett’s general approach is to use speed and different formations to create confusion for the offense. From time to time, we’ll also confuse ourselves."

psp23-

I posted the link last night and today. Lots of insight from a guy (Ben Muth) who went to Standford and played in the league. He's going to be following the Skins all season and this is why he chose the Skins.

Washington Redskins
Why we chose them: First, they have three new starters up front, including a highly touted rookie. Second, they have a new coach with a new scheme -- which happens to be the most talked about running scheme of the last 20 years. While Washington gives us two teams in the same division, that's not a bad thing. We can look at how Dallas blocks against an opponent one week, then look at how Washington blocks against the same opponent a couple weeks later. Finally, the Redskins offensive linemen will always be the Hogs, at least in name, no matter what the personnel is. It seems wrong to write about offensive lines and not include them.

Staff/Scheme: Daniel Snyder's big offseason acquisition was head coach Mike Shanahan. Mike brought his son Kyle from the Texans to be the coordinator. That means you can expect a "West Coast" style passing offense, and the zone stretch running game that both Shanahans have employed. It will be Chris Foerster's job to make sure the offensive line can execute these schemes. Foerster comes from San Francisco, by way of Baltimore. In San Francisco he coached young first-round tackle Joe Staley. He also coached one of the all-time great left tackles, Jonathan Ogden, when he was at Baltimore. That experience should prove valuable in coaching Trent Williams.

The zone stretch game requires athleticism from the boys up front, especially at the tackle and center positions. That's because these guys are either blocking defensive ends (playside tackles) or climbing to the second level and blocking linebackers who are running in a dead sprint (centers and backside tackles). The guards need to have a little more lead in their backside, as they are often charged with keeping nose tackles and three-technique defensive tackles on the line of scrimmage. The Redskins certainly tried to build their line this way, getting two first-round draft picks at tackle and a center that weighs under 300 pounds. (Remember that all first-rounders are incredibly athletic for their positions. Anyone who is not a freak athlete slides to the later rounds. Quarterbacks and Sebastian Janikowski -- and his beer gut -- are exceptions to this rule.) Their guards are both big guys more than capable of flattening defensive tackles. Of course having all the right parts isn't necessarily enough -- they have to fit together. This is especially true in a zone running game. Knowing when you can climb to the second level, and when you should stay with your teammate on the down lineman is vital to success. How quickly this unit gels could be the difference this season.

Projected Starters: From left to right: Trent Williams, Derrick Dockery, Casey Rabach, Artis Hicks, Jammal Brown.

I hope having no d-lineman on the line of scrimmage confuses the Texan's offense as much as it confuses me.

You've gotta think his athleticism (at least compared to Dock's) is something the coaches wanna take advantage of. I've never seen Dock as a good fit for this scheme so maybe the coaches think the same thing.

Plus he was with Shanahan in Denver. New coaches always wanna bring in their own.

But after reading what Diesel posted, it looks like this scheme calls for your most athletic lineman to play the tackle and center spots...not necessarily the guards. I guess we'll see what happens...

NFL plans league-wide training after "unprofessional conduct" by Jets

Posted by Michael David Smith on September 17, 2010 6:22 PM ET

The NFL announced today that the league will implement a training program for all 32 teams on proper conduct in the workplace in response to the controversy over the Jets' actions toward a female reporter's presence at practice.

"In reviewing the incident of Saturday, September 11 involving TV Azteca reporter Ines Sainz during the Jets' practice and open locker-room time for the media, the NFL interviewed 17 individuals that were present, including Ms. Sainz," the league said in its announcement. "Commissioner Goodell determined that while there was unprofessional conduct, [Jets owner] Woody Johnson and his staff acted promptly to correct the situation, including a personal apology to Ms. Sainz and arranging a professional education session for the Jets on workplace conduct."

It's no surprise that the league chose Friday evening to make this announcement. As every public relations professional knows, Friday evening is the best time to make an announcement when you know you need to make an announcement but wish the subject you were making the announcement about would just disappear.

But as to the substance of the announcement, the league never specified which individuals were responsible for the "unprofessional conduct." And the announcement said "that the atmosphere was not hostile, that no obscene or lewd comments or gestures were made and that nobody had physical contact with Sainz."

Johnson said in a separate statement that he supports the NFL's actions.

"We've learned from what happened last Saturday, and have reaffirmed our commitment to treat all members of the media with professionalism and respect," Johnson said. "The commissioner has developed a constructive approach that emphasizes education and awareness. I believe what emerges will improve the working relationship between all media and the NFL."

And with that, both Goodell and Johnson will hope this issue quietly goes away.

Redskins linebacker Orakpo sees a holding pattern
(AP) – 1 day ago

ASHBURN, Va. — It's not everyday someone draws a walk-off holding penalty to beat the Dallas Cowboys. The way Brian Orakpo was playing, it shouldn't have been a surprise.

The Washington Redskins linebacker drew three holding calls on Dallas tackle Alex Barron in Sunday's 13-7 win. That's 30 yards worth of setback for a Cowboys offense that came very close to pulling out the victory.

Orakpo will have to get used to it. After setting a Redskins rookie record with 11 sacks and earning a Pro Bowl berth last season, he is showing no sign of a sophomore slump. Not only is he stronger, but he's getting a chance to blitz perhaps three times as often in his new role as an outside linebacker in the team's 3-4 alignment.

The Redskins host Houston on Sunday.

"He has great leverage and he knows how to use it," fullback Mike Sellers said. "He makes a lot of linemen panic because he's one of those new guys in the league that people watch to see what he's doing. He'll be the next DeMarcus Ware, probably even a little bit better, to be honest."

Barron's hold of Orakpo in the game's final play was so obvious — he grabbed Orakpo around the neck in an act of near desperation — that many Redskins knew they had won the game before the play was completed. Tony Romo's apparent game-winning touchdown pass was negated by the penalty, but Romo likely would have been sacked if Orakpo hadn't been held.

"It's going to be fun watching him this year," defensive end Phillip Daniels said. "If they don't hold him, those are sacks."

Orakpo's maturity also is impressive. Many NFL players are still cutups in their second year in the league — behaving more like teenagers than well-paid adults. Orakpo carries himself as if he's 30.

"He is an old soul," defensive end Andre Carter said. "Everything he does is real laid-back. He's cool, calm and collected. He's old-school, like that. Brian's always been mature for his age. He's always been strong-headed, strong-willed. I'm not even worried about him."

Orakpo, who became a father this summer, has developed a rigorous Monday workout routine based on plyometrics, a type of exercise that develops both speed and power. He'll do backpedals, sidesteps, lunges and then sprint up and down a hill as many as 10 times — on a day when nearly every player is sore from the game the day before.

"It helps me get the juices flowing, get all the soreness out," Orakpo said. "Then I get that day off on Tuesday."

While the holding penalties are great, Orakpo would rather have the sacks. That'll be his goal as the Redskins host the Houston Texans this weekend, when he'll face a team from his home state for the second straight week. Orakpo was born in Houston and was originally a Houston Oilers fan, then later rooted for the Texans.

His high school, however, was nicknamed the Redskins.

"My high school coach told me, 'Once you're a Redskin, you're always a Redskin,'" he said.

Diesel44 I read it when you posted it yesterday. TW is going to be a great player for the Skins if he stays healthy. I'm extremely happy they chose him and not Okung. I think Hicks and Brown will make for a solid right side the more reps they get. It seems to me that some one wants Kory L to eventually replace Dock on the line, although Dock looked better v. the cowboys. My guess is that Kory offers more in the athletic department than Dock and thus a better compliment to TW. Then there's Rabbach, who is by far the weakest link on the starting line. I can't see that dude as the starting center next year for the skins.

What are your thoughts on the game this Sunday?

TWISI-

My thoughts on the Texans matchup..

Everybody is ready to crown the Texans. They have ONE winning season in their existence and while it's another tough early matchup, it's not insurmountable.

Mario Williams has a groin injury, the reining ROY Cushing is suspended, Owen Daniels is ailing, and their secondary is suspect. Foster has one great game in his career going against a flawed Colts D that was hurt by the loss of B. Sanders, he typically wasn't touched until 8-10 yds down the field. I'm more concerned with A. Johnson but combined with Hall and Los and some safety help the receiving threats are less prolific when compared to the Cowboys (Miles, Whitten, etc.) and he should be held in check. Schuab is a pocket passer and will be easier to pressure when compared to Romo. I'd look for Orakpo and Landry to continue their all pro campaigns and DHall to create another turnover.

The Wild Card for us is KS and his knowledge of their personnel, their O, and their D. I bet he's had a busy week helping Haslett with the game plan for the D, as well as his game plan for attacking the Texans D.

I see us winning 24-20 and playing a team next week that Haslett knows pretty well in the Rams.

Ah yes, the same big mouth who told us how good the Skins defense was last year too! DH23 has issues regarding how he evaluates himself and his performance.

Hey DH23, would you just shut your mouth and play ball please? You guys won because the official rightly flagged a hold on the last play, that's it. You didn't look like the Pats, Ravens, Saints, Seattle, Texans,
Titans, out there.

Diesel44 I see the game similarly. I think the Skins will win by 4-7 points. After re-watching the cowboys game, the Skins defense made some timely adjustments to the cowboy's protection game plan. There were blitzers coming free and only the quick throw game plan of the cowboys save Romo from more hits. Schaub won't be as lucky because the Texans want to push the ball downfield. It's going to be a good matchup be the Skins defense will again prove to be the difference.

thanks. that would be fun.

anybody have any idea about if it's on on the local cbs affiliates in annapolis?

Posted by: walter-in-fallschurch | September 17, 2010 6:18 PM | Report abuse

The local Annapolis CBS affiliate, if there is one, probably has a good idea.

They probably even have a website, too.

Speaking of websites, i recently discovered one called "google". It lets you search for things using various parameters that you can enter into the "search bar".

I tried it out for "redskins bars annapolis md" and was amazed at how many "hits" it returned. This google page is pretty nifty.

http://www.google.com

Wow, what a jim dandy of a site that google is. I used it to find the website of Baltimore's CBS affiliate, and then i used THEIR site to check which game was going to be shown in the Annapolis market which is actually believe it or not part of the Baltimore market. Wow, that's amazing. Annapolis is part of the Baltimore home TV market. Annapolis is easily 15-25 miles from Baltimore. I thought sure they would have their own affiliates of all the big networks. Guess not.

NFL plans league-wide training after "unprofessional conduct" by Jets

Posted by Michael David Smith on September 17, 2010 6:22 PM ET

The NFL announced today that the league will implement a training program for all 32 teams on proper conduct in the workplace in response to the controversy over the Jets' actions toward a female reporter's presence at practice.

"In reviewing the incident of Saturday, September 11 involving TV Azteca reporter Ines Sainz during the Jets' practice and open locker-room time for the media, the NFL interviewed 17 individuals that were present, including Ms. Sainz," the league said in its announcement. "Commissioner Goodell determined that while there was unprofessional conduct, [Jets owner] Woody Johnson and his staff acted promptly to correct the situation, including a personal apology to Ms. Sainz and arranging a professional education session for the Jets on workplace conduct."

It's no surprise that the league chose Friday evening to make this announcement. As every public relations professional knows, Friday evening is the best time to make an announcement when you know you need to make an announcement but wish the subject you were making the announcement about would just disappear.

But as to the substance of the announcement, the league never specified which individuals were responsible for the "unprofessional conduct." And the announcement said "that the atmosphere was not hostile, that no obscene or lewd comments or gestures were made and that nobody had physical contact with Sainz."

Johnson said in a separate statement that he supports the NFL's actions.

"We've learned from what happened last Saturday, and have reaffirmed our commitment to treat all members of the media with professionalism and respect," Johnson said. "The commissioner has developed a constructive approach that emphasizes education and awareness. I believe what emerges will improve the working relationship between all media and the NFL."

And with that, both Goodell and Johnson will hope this issue quietly goes away.

Week 2 Match up worth watching:

Ballmer v. Cincy

Stillers v. Titans

Pats v. Jets

Colts v. Jints


Analysis:

The Green Team will lose and it will be ugly in New York.

Despite the attention and new stadium, the Mets, I mean Jets, aren't faring as well as the Yankees, I mean Giants.

Vince Young will look for Big Ben under center, not see him, and be glad some luster and quarterback comparison is off this contest.

The ravens will win in such a way that it'll have folks wondering not just about cincy's lame FA acquistions--T.O., Tank J, and Pacman--but Marvin Lewis as well.

And we ain't got no brotherly love for either Eli or what's-his-name, his brother.

It would be nice if they both made a tv commercial where they portrayed two obnoxious fans sitting on a couch complaining about overexposed, privileged NFL players.

But if Big Blue somehow defeats the Colts, they'll take their rightful position as the Real Deal in the NFC East.

And even though all these games are worth watching, I still say a redskin victory over the Texans is what will folks chattering come Monday.

Not that that will ever happen.

Or: will it?

Personally, I couldn't care less whether we looked like those teams or not. All I'm looking at is where the Skins are and where we expect them to be. I expected to see us win that game ugly because in close games the team with the better coach and better QB wins. We did that Sunday night...and didn't win any of those games last year. It was refreshing to have the smartest guy on the field standing on our sideline for a change.

The offense is a work in progress. If the defense is playing ahead of the schedule, that's gravy. But hating on a win from a team that only did it 4 times last year is either arrogant or stupid...and probably a combination of both.

I just luv how top notch NCAA football programs schedule weak teams early on in lieu of 'preseason' games.

The NFL could do this by having team in the league play Tampa, Cleveland, and the Jags at least once.

I hope the good people who run Duke's football program have had its players review their individual life insurance policies as Nasty Nick Saban will have to put a punishing 70-burger up on the board to justify playing a team with slow 40 times, but great SAT scores.

Saban: Yes, I want to onside kick with 3 minutes left.

The score is 82-3, and those smart-azzed Blue Devils might put points on the board like they were Reggie Miller, and we, the hapless Knicks.

So to go along with his judgement, his commitment, his word, his offseason workout decisions, his motives, and his morals, now Haynesworth's on-the-field presence is questionable? Sounds about par for the course.

Monday morning in Durham, the Director of Intercollegiate Athletics: "Alright, whose idea was it to play 'Bama?"

27 assembled underlings, avoiding eye contact: "Not mine. It was his."

Sorry Moe. I have to roll with Belicheck. Fisher is a tight second but that guy in New England has made something out of nothing too many times to dismiss. Plus, he has won on the big stage which is about as good as you can get. Fisher won with Haynesworth, but Belicheck won with Moss. BTW, Haynesworth was much better when he was hungry and playing for Fisher.
