"What Seattle ran

Redskins 360
POSTED 3:49 PM BY Ryan O'Halloran

A question posed on a recent Redskins message board wondered what Seattle ran offensively against the Redskins in the teams' January playoff game, won by the Seahawks 35-14. This is obviously asked to start predicting what kind of formations Jim Zorn will use as the Redskins' coach.

You asked for it, here it is.

Total snaps: 54

4WR-1RB: 14 times. ... Seattle ran this formation on four of its first five snaps. The big plays out of this set was a 17-yard touchdown run and a 20-yard touchdown pass. The pass-run breakdown is 10-4.

3WR-2RB: 10 times. ... The Seahawks connected for a 35-yard pass but also threw an interception. The four running plays gained nine yards.

3WR-1RB: 17 times. ... This ended up being the most common formation. Seattle passed 11 times (plus one sack) from this set.

2WR-2RB: 8 times. ... Four passes (including one INT) and four runs.

1WR-2RB: 4 times. ... Three of these plays came after Seattle assumed a 28-14 lead.

5WR: 1 time. ... Mike Holmgren lined up Shaun Alexander as a receiver and Shawn Springs snuffed out the play for a 1-yard loss.

Expect this to change with Zorn because of the presence of Chris Cooley and the expectation to get rookie Fred Davis on the field. Since Cooley is an every snap player, whenever Davis is on the field, he'll have to be moved around.


**** One bit of Redskins news today: the team announced that Dan Snyder is footing most of the bill for the Hall of Fame celebrations for Darrell Green and Art Monk. The check is for $200,000 and according to a news release, the cash "will help fund celebrations to be held in Canton, Ohio surrounding the Hall of Fame ceremony and will also benefit the charitable foundations of both Monk and Green."

For me they're different. The joy of Airplane is that it's just relentless jokes, if one doesn't work, another will be along in a moment. You seldom have to think, just listen and enjoy.

Holy Grail is more surrealistic than downright funny, so you have to think too.

We're such a weird repressed lot, you have to have an outlet for it!

It's That Man Again (ITMA) during WWII begat, The Goons in the 50s/60s, which in turn begat At Last the 1948 Show, then The World of Beachcomber, then Monty Python, then Spike Milligan's 'Q' Series', through Hitch Hiker's Guide and continues through things like Vic Reeves and Bob Mortimer (Big Night Out, The Smell of Reeves and Mortimer, Shooting Stars) then Ali G, and so on.

When the weather is grey all the time and everywhere is so crowded, you develop tons of nuance in everything you say/do or else you'll have a bloodbath on your hands because we all live on-top of each other.

All that nuance becomes fertile ground for comedy, as you also need to be able to laugh at yourself to tolerate the situation!

In your daring "catch and release" predictions (1) who did you predict the
'Skins would release when they signed Jackson and (2) did you predict that J. T. Mapu would be released?

Sween re-posted above t_e.

For Rob Jackson, I predict the recently re-signed Dorian Smith will be re-cut, but may be back by the preseason if one of the other DEs gets hurt in camp.

One underrated quality quoting movie:

Coming to America.

"One time I asked Joe Lewis how old he was when he fought Marciano. You know what he told me? 165 year old."

His mamma call him Clay, imma call him Clay

In hindsight, it should have been apparent how quickly J.T. Mapu would have been released ... the "T" stands for tax.

Only God above, the Hugh Hefner on high, can make it for ya!

Chad Rinehart T 6-5 308
A four-year starter at left tackle, Rinehart allowed only one stop behind the line and limited his opponent to 11 tackles in 2007. An All-American first-team selection, Rinehart has the highest career blocking consistency grade of any Football Championship Subdivision offensive lineman in the last 15 years. A tough and physical player, Rinehart is a solid athlete with excellent feet. Because he did not play against top competition in college, there is some doubt as to how he will measure up at the next level. Technique is somewhat raw and he could struggle against quicker defensive linemen.

We need MapU for U.S. Americans, like such as.

He helped Joshua fight the battle of Jericho, he helped Daniel get out the lion's den, he helped Gilligan get off the island.

"Rinehart is a solid athlete with excellent feet"

Just how does one measure the excellence of feat?

Man goes into a restaurant and he sits down and he's having a bowl of soup. He says to the waiter "Waiter, come taste this soup."

Waiter says "Is there something wrong with the soup?"

He goes "Taste the soup."

He says "Is there something wrong with the soup? Is the soup too hot?"

Hey says "Will you taste the soup?"

What's wrong is the soup too cold?"

"Will you just taste the soup?!"

"Alright, I'll taste the soup!"

"Where's the spoon?"

"AHA!"

Jackson made a bit of a name for himself with a strong showing at the Hula Bowl in practice and during the game. The 6-foot-4, 259-pound Jackson is not known as a pass rusher, but he showed the ability to get into the backfield in Hawaii.

To those of you that were/are paying attention (and from the looks of the vote count many of you are) Chief Zee managed to take out that moronic yardbird mascot from Pukedelphia and has moved on to some retarded mascot from Minnesota. Commanding lead so far but only about 400 votes at this time. Take a second and vote:
