Redskins sign Jeremiah Johnson to practice squad

The Redskins made two practice-squad moves Tuesday, signing running back Jeremiah Johnson and releasing running back Quinn Porter.

With third-string running back Chad Simpson sidelined by a hamstring injury, the Redskins may promote Johnson to the 53-man roster. An undrafted rookie free agent from Oregon, Johnson, listed at 5-feet-9 and 218 pounds, was originally signed by the Houston Texans.

During the preseason with Houston, Johnson rushed for 107 yards on 19 carries (a 5.6-yard average). While at Oregon, Johnson rushed for 2,336 yards and 30 touch­downs in four seasons.

From http://www.footballsfuture.com/2009/prospects/jeremiah_johnson.html

Strengths

Johnson is a talented all purpose running back. He has been an impact performer in four ways for the Ducks, and could continue that type of versatility in the NFL. Johnson has good quickness and has the shiftiness to make the first defender miss and pick up consistent yardage. He aggressively hits the hole and keeps his legs moving to pick up extra yardage. He runs bigger than his size indicates, because he has one of the best stiff arms at the college level. Johnson has also shown soft hands and has to be accounted for out of the backfield. Not to be outdone, he has also been a playmaker on kick and punt returns.

Weaknesses

Johnson has a lot of versatility, but he does not have one true standout physical trait. He has average size and does not have the power to move the pile but also lacks the explosive speed to be a change of pace guy. Durability has been an issue despite never being a workhorse. He has had shoulder and knee injuries during his career.

Well I can't find a single starter on Detroit's roster that has any affiliation with this kid, so I have to figure he is here purely for talent.

Jeremiah Johnson was on the Texans for a sip of coffee. Maybe KS liked what he saw.

But if he did, why did he wait until to grab him?

My guess is that they need a guy to take reps in practice.

We also need a FS. I like Moore's range but he can't tackle, takes terrible angles, and isn't doing the job I thought he was capable of.

Posted by: Diesel44 | October 26, 2010 1:03 PM | Report abuse

Coulda' used ERIC BERRY? I thought so, but no-o-o-o, MOORE was all that; need O-line. Well, there's no arguing that need.

In fact, we could have used five top o-linemen as this season is proving. I suppose HICKS and BROWN count as "top," or maybe average at least. But who saw DOCK being unable to see the field? I sure didn't. And MONTGOMERY a valued reserve? I know he plays well and all, but because of his size, he gets tossed around like a rag-doll. Yet, he's still here. WILLIAMS has been great so far. Banged up, he's still effective. SELVY and COOK are hanging by their fingernails on the 53-man. Wishing big MIKE was here.

And TRYON (COLTS - 11 tackles, 2 assists, 1 pass defensed), and BARNES (2 tackles in '09 and ZERO in '10). More wasted picks.

Let's look at the players I was recommending here the past two years.

GREG TOLER 2009 ARIZ 4th round. Starting corner in 2010 last five games; 47 solo, 5 assists, 1 INT, 1 SACK. (ST. PAUL'S COLLEGE)

DT ANTONIO DIXON 2009 FA. Well, actually we DID have him, but he wasn't good enough for the REDSKINS. 2010 PHILA - 13 solo, 2 assists, 2 passes defensed, 2 sacks. (MIAMI)

FS TERRELL WHITEHEAD 2010 JAX - FA, currently injured. (NORFOLK STATE)

C CECIL NEWTON 2009 JAX - FA practice squad, activated last two games '09. 2010 waived out of the league. (TENNESSEE STATE)

OLB ARTHUR MOATS 2010 BUFF - FA, 2 solo, 3 assists, injured four games.(JAMES MADISON)

OLB ADRIAN TRACY 2010 NYG - Season ending injury in pre-season. (WILLIAM and MARY)

And I've got two for 2011, MARTIN PARKER DT and ERIC McBRIDE ILB UNIVERSITY of RICHMOND. PARKER might be a low rounder or FA, but he's got what it takes to succeed in the NFL.....along with 6'3" 315 pounds of beef and a BAD attitude toward offensive players. McBRIDE has a nose for the football, and almost surely will be available in FA.

A lot of these young men play now, or played right in the REDSKIN's own back-yard. I'm not faulting the scouting staff though; not after what I heard on draft day in 2009. No, VINNIE "THE BAG-MAN" and know nothing football genius DAN SNYDER are the culprits who let these players slip off to other venues.

NOTE to DANNY:

Continue to stay the f*** away from FED-EX, and mail in the checks.

An odd end or two:

1. Redskins sign Jeremiah Johnson. How did they talk the dude down from the mountain?

2. The Skins and the Giants play two games that could have a big impact on the playoff picture. Giants QB Manning leads the league in interceptions. Are you listening, DH?

3. McN has one of the highest QB sack totals in the league. The Giants D has knocked 5 QBs out of the game, the latest being Tony Romo who is out 8 weeks with a broken collar bone. Christ on a crutch.

Haynesworth AS A DEFENSIVE END? I don't know how many times I said that last year? Last year's DC was not adaptable and could not change. This year's defensive appears to be able to do that. I attribute the verbal altercation with Hall as evidence of that. Tennessee adjusted to the way Haynesworth played in order to leverage the most out of him.

You have to wonder about the adaptability and flexibility of coaches from last year and this year? You have to adjust your system to the talent you have. That's how "grandpa" Joe Gibbs won all of those superbowls. Starting with the hard realization that Joe Theismann could NEVER, EVER be Dan Fouts. After those first 5 games coming to that realization it was all downhill for JJG.

Yikes. This is so impossible to call. It all depends on Shanny's thinking, and who can predict that? There's a good chance they might all be gone. If I had to take a best bet I'd say a. Shanny won't want to go into next year with Rexy at the helm.

I think it mostly depends on how these guys play in the next nine games and on who is available in free agency. Portis is done, though. He won't be wearing anyone's uni next year.

I agree with Beeps that Portis is out of uni (or playing for vet min somewhere else.)

Everyone else is back but Carlos and maybe Rocky Mac if he decides he wants a big fat payday.

Yup, Albert in B&G next year.

Studs and Duds by John Keim

CB DeAngelo Hall. Guess this is an obvious one. But Hall gets out of the Dud column for the first time in several weeks. The Bears used a lot of three-step drops so the reads probably came a bit easier for Hall. But he displayed all of his skill set. He read well on his first one and then made an adjustment few DBs could make; he broke hard on another and made a terrific one-handed grab on the one he returned for a touchdown. The last one was just easy. The Bears WRs did not help out QB Jay Cutler, but give Hall credit for always pouncing on a chance for a pick. That’s what he does best. Hall trusts his instincts and in some games gets burned by them. Not Sunday. I also loved how he tackled. The Redskins prevented the Bears from getting a lot of yards after the catch and Hall was a main reason. His open-field tackling was the best its been all season.

DL Albert Haynesworth. He played a spirited game. Yes, he still made some mistakes and always will. He still turned sideways on one run while slanting to his left. That effectively takes him out of the play. But let’s not quibble. The Redskins will take this sort of game every single time from him. Of course, he did it vs. a bad line, but still. I’m guessing Chris Williams has never been dumped on the QB the way he was on Haynesworth’s sack. He also went over the top at the goal-line to stop Cutler (why on earth did they call a QB sneak from beyond the 1-yard line? Odd. And no challenge? Even odder). He finished with two tackles for a loss, one coming when he burst inside the center moving to his left. A display of power and strength. Also liked that on a couple blitzes, Haynesworth slanted

LB Brian Orakpo. He can be invisible at times, but when he makes plays they’re typically big. He finished with two sacks, two tackles for a loss and two quarterback hurries. It’s the sort of game they expect from him. He should have drawn a holding penalty on one rush; but the officials called it on the other side on the same play so it’s no big deal. Orakpo’s sacks came on rushes where he did the unusual: he never dipped his shoulder, that’s how fast he got by the tackle. On his second sack (in the third quarter), Orakpo’s hands were as active as any other time I can recall. He got them inside the tackle, they were flying fast and he powered his man out of the way.

P Hunter Smith. This is an odd choice, but I’m putting him on here for his selfless punting. He destroyed his average, but did so to help the team. Yes, that’s his job. But trust me on this, several punters from here in the past would not have angled the ball so much out of bounds. They would have tried to squeeze every last yard. Smith probably could have done a little better, but he allowed 12 return yards on seven punts vs. Devin Hester. Five went out of bounds and only once did the Bears start a drive beyond their own 30-yard line after one of his punts.

continued...

LB Rocky McIntosh. Saw a couple missed tackles, but McIntosh had a huge strip that gave the Redskins possession at their own 25-yard line in the fourth quarter. He also had a sack of Cutler, though that was forced by pressure from others. Still, he got him down.

RG Artis Hicks. Somebody on the line had to do something for Ryan Torain to run like he did. A lot of his success came on runs to the right. Hicks had his issues, getting run over one time by Brian Urlacher among them. But he handled some stunts well and on Torain’s two biggest runs early in the fourth quarter (for a combined 45 yards), Hicks did a nice job turning his man and helping to clear a lane. On the second one, he drove his man completely out of the play. Later in this series he controlled his man again and if not for a flubbed block elsewhere it would have been a decent gain. Finally, on Torain’s 27-yarder to clinch the win, Hicks drove his man out again. In all honesty, I had a hard time finding a stud from this group, including FB Mike Sellers and TE Chris Cooley. Each had their share of good blocks, but each also had their woes. So Hicks gets the call for the group.

Duds

RT Jammal Brown. I know he’s hurting so I’ll put a figurative semi-asterisk next to him. I worry about him going forward, too. Will he ever be healthy? How long does it take for a hip to feel right – after all, it’s been more than a year since he had surgery. That can’t be a good sign. Regardless, he has a hard time moving laterally, a big problem at tackle. Sometimes he’s opening his shoulder pretty fast and, Sunday, that led to some pressure. He allowed pressure by Julius Peppers when he was simply knocked back and slipped. The Bears used Peppers more on the left side than usual just because it was a good matchup. The Redskins wisely did not leave Brown one-on-one with him too often, opting for tight ends instead. One time, he played Peppers too wide and let him get inside because his feet just don’t react fast right now. Another time, Israel Idonije got by him; Brown had his hands in tight which is great, but he just couldn’t move his feet. Other times he stands too upright; a function of not being able to bend his knees perhaps? He also had a holding penalty. Brown did do some good things; but it’s clear that he’s not himself. I’m guessing he could use a couple weeks off just to recharge for the remainder of the season.

LG Kory Lichtensteiger. Let the defensive tackle go through him on one play in the first quarter. Just missed the guy. On the end around to Santana Moss, he pulled and failed to hit his man and then bumped into TE Chris Cooley, throwing him off stride. Because of that, Cooley could not get to Peppers. And because of that Moss was dumped for a loss. Another time the DT got through him partly because Lichtensteiger opened up a little bit too much with his left foot. Israel Idonije steamrolled him on another play. And he didn’t handle a stunt well.

continued...

WR Anthony Armstrong. Sometimes it only takes one play to land on this list. And that’s the case here. You just can’t drop a deep one like that; not when it might have gone for a touchdown. Also couldn’t hold his block, allowing his man to come off and punch the ball from Ryan Torain.

QB Donovan McNabb. He’s landing on this side much more than you would think. I don’t think he’s been horrible; he does lend intangibles that are helpful (leadership; confidence). But, man, he seemed to lack awareness on too many plays Sunday. The first interception was a bad decision (ya think?) and McNabb should have taken the sack. Thing is, if it’s not tipped by the defensive lineman, and if there’s too much air under the ball on the pass to Chris Cooley, then Brian Urlacher might have picked it off as well. Another time on a similar play that was tipped, had McNabb realized a guy was in his face and dumped it over the top, Cooley would have had a big gain. If you’re not leading long drives, you’d best take care of the ball. It didn’t help that the Bears seemed to figure out the bootlegs and did an excellent job keeping him in the pocket. When that happens, McNabb is ordinary. Very ordinary. McNabb also made a bad choice on the interception down the middle; Joey Galloway was never open. McNabb was victimized by a couple drops and made a smart throw to Cooley on the last drive for a first down. But it’s safe to wonder at this point just how far McNabb has progressed in this offense.

PK Graham Gano. I love the guy’s kickoffs; he’s a big reason they do so well in coverage. He kicks it high enough to give players time to run down and he’s also adept at kicking to a side. But, man, he’s paid big money to convert field goals and a struggling offense needs every point it can get. The doinked 37-yarder makes you wonder how consistent he’ll become. Mike Shanahan said he has confidence in him. But Gano is now 13-for-18.

WR Joey Galloway. In fairness to him, he really didn’t do anything. But that’s also the problem; he really didn’t do anything. Galloway now has eight catches in seven games. Sunday, as the No. 3 receiver, he caught no passes and was thrown to twice. He had no chance to break up the interception, but he also seemed unaware the ball was coming his way. Galloway is a fellow Buckeye who has had a good, long career. But his first seven games confirm what many thought coming in: You don’t get better at age 38 and he hasn’t done much the past couple years for a reason.

DE/LB Andre Carter. Carter did have a tackle for a loss in which he came backside down the line. A nice play. But he was left in a decent amount of one-on-one situations and wasn’t getting to the quarterback. There were a few times he was doubled as the Bears used some max protection. However, Carter doesn’t seem to have the same burst as last season. It also seems he’s not getting into blockers fast enough for his hands to be effective.

Suds (Half stud/half dud)

RB Ryan Torain. Yes, I know he rushed for 125 yards against an excellent run defense. For the most part he ran with patience; he does an excellent job letting holes develop and then making sound cuts. He again broke tackles, partly linebackers are left to lunge at him using their arms and DBs get run over. That’s all good. But he fumbled twice, losing one. In a tight game, that’s tough to stomach, especially because the lost fumble occurred at the Bears’ 7-yard line in the fourth quarter. Also, Torain whiffed on a blitz pickup leading to a Donovan McNabb fumble and missed another block in protection. Will experience solve these issues?

LT Trent Williams. I liked a lot of what he did when matched vs. Julius Peppers. A couple times Peppers tried to overpower him and Williams’ base prevented that from happening. Williams could match his power; again, that stems from having such a good base. But Peppers did get through him for a couple pressures and Israel Idonije did as well. He also got pushed back on a couple run blocks. Overall, considering he’s a rookie, Williams was pretty solid but just a notch below studly.

Co-sign, beep.

Just reading some stuff on DHall...looks like the HoF asked for his jersey from Sunday's game and it's going to be put up there for his INT record. Not sure why since damn near 20 guys have a share of the same record...

It's amazing to me that Cutler keeps bumpin' his gums about how DHall is nothing special and he'd go at him again...if that's the case, Cutler sucks even worse than expected since he had such an epic awful day against an "average CB". I thought DHall would have lit him up for talking that junk but he's been uncharacteristically restrained on the topic. You'd think this would give him all the reason in the world to go all Primetime on us...
