Sellers out; Hall, Haynesworth likely to miss game

Redskins Coach Jim Zorn said fullback Mike Sellers would not play Sunday against the Oakland Raiders because of a thigh injury, and though Zorn did not rule out cornerback DeAngelo Hall (knee) and defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth (ankle), it appears likely both will miss the Raiders game.

Haynesworth did not practice again Thursday and was walking around Redskins Park in a protective boot.

"I don't want to put him 'doubtful' yet, until tomorrow if I had to," Zorn said. "That's where he stands. We're just trying to keep his ankle from swelling, just keeping the pressure off, and that boot helps a little bit."

Hall did not play last weekend against New Orleans; Haynesworth did and aggravated his ankle injury. Sellers will miss his first game since 2007. The fullback had been lining up more frequently as a tight end to help with blocking in the running game. Zorn said backup tight end Todd Yoder would play more with Sellers out.

Tackle Stephon Heyer, who sat out Wednesday's practice with a knee injury, returned to practice "in a limited way," Zorn said.

Recognition for Fletcher

The London Fletcher Pro Bowl campaign is underway, Dan Steinberg writes. ... Fletcher was named recipient of the Redskins' Walter Payton Man of the Year award, in recognition of his community service. That means he'll be the Redskins' nominee for the league-wide Payton award. As blogged earlier, he also earned an award from USA Football and the NFL Players Association, which named an "All-Fundamentals Team." Fletcher won the award for "angle tackling."

Cerrato to interview Clausen ... on the radio

Vinny Cerrato's guest on "Inside the Red Zone" tomorrow on ESPN 980 (8-10 a.m.) will be Notre Dame quarterback Jimmy Clausen. Steinberg has the details.

The entry says that Albert Haynesworth didn't play last week but that's not right. He did indeed play last week.

Also, this will be his 3rd missed game of the season, what the hell? I love the guy when he's in there but he doesn't play often enough.

Not my point. My point is these guys should shut up and not diss guys publicly. That's all I was saying. Our o-line isn't great, obviously, but I get irritated when guys take backhanded shots at their own teammates to reporters.

Posted by: mattylight | December 10, 2009 3:51 PM | Report abuse

I get your point, and I don't like that teammates are taking shots at each other through the media either.

Portis and Moss will at least put a name to a quote and I have more respect for that than I do for the guys that take shots anonymously(which they usually do in J.Reid's posts about Portis).

Either way I don't like it, but if you're going to call me out, I'd at least like to know who it is.

There you go skins fans, your 153 million dollars well spent. How many quality linemen, offense and defense, could we have had for this ungodly sum.

Instead we are tied up with 2 unreliable players who only look good on paper.

This is what happens when your so-called football franchise operates on a "marketing first" business plan and not a "football first" plan.

This is why when I hear reports that Snyder is personally scouting players for the draft, I am again convinced that no matter how much we complain, Dan Snyder will never change how he does business.

Yeah, he should have to give part of his pay back every time he gets injured and calls in sick.

Dude, he's never played a full season. He misses a few every year with injuries. That's why we didn't have to pay him more -- he's part time.

Reposted from last thread: Of course Portis is coming back next year. He is due more than 7.5 mil GUARANTEED, and for that kind of coin, there's no way that he would retire unless the symptoms of his concussion do not subside, which they almost certainly wiil since this is allegedly his first and the effects of the first are usually temporary. Moreover, there's no way that the 'Skins will pay him 7.5 mil plus to do nothing, so they won't cut him. So, folks, meet your 2010 starting RB, the same as your 2009 starting RB, no. 26 in your program but no. ? in your heart, Clinton Portis. The best we can hope for is that the team acquire a speedy, "homerun hitter" type of back in the off-season and go to a "running back by committee" set-up.

Okay, so what the two highest paid offseason acquisitions aren't playing because of injury...

They're 3-9. If they were 9-3, maybe they would say f it and play. But when you're 3-9 your season is over. No need to have anyone who has a significant injury out there to do further damage that could linger into next season.

we will need Portis next year since Betts, Rock, and Sellars will probably be gone.

Plus he knows shanahan and if nothing else is a great pass protector for Campbell, next years starter.

I know Portis didn't have a "burst" this year, according to j. Reid. His 495 yds and the 79 yd longest run of his career were simply due to the outstanding offensive line play AND defenses concern of our deadly west coast air assault.

Mrrs. Horton and Doughty are Strong Safeties, rather than free safeties. Without Landry's speed, you end up needing to play both safeties back more often.

http://www.profootballweekly.com/2009/12/04/mccoy-suh-top-strong-dl-class

#2 and #3 on my skins draft wish list.

DEFENSIVE TACKLES

1. Gerald McCoy, Oklahoma (Jr.)
6-3½e, 300e, 5.0e

Quick, active and extremely disruptive, McCoy returned to school for his fourth year despite having top-10 potential a year ago, and his decision to return did not produce the results he had expected, as the 7-5 Sooners failed to qualify for a BCS bowl game after losing QB Sam Bradford early in the season. Nonetheless, McCoy was every bit as disruptive this season as he was a year ago, capable of inverting an offensive line the same way Bears DT Tommie Harris did at OU, penetrating gaps and consistently playing behind the line of scrimmage. McCoy is best when he is on the move and will fit best as a one-gap penetrator in the pros, despite having shown enough strength ragdolling blockers to handle playing in a "30" front.

2. Ndamukong Suh, Nebraska (Sr.)
6-3 7/8, 295, 5.0e

Suh grades out more highly than any other senior in this year's draft class, showing outstanding upper-body strength to dominate against lesser competition and overpower interior offensive linemen. He might never be a great pass rusher and needs to learn how to work the edges better, but that is not to say he is not better than most college defensive linemen rushing from the inside. He brings value as a three-down player to the pro game and has shown he can be dominant defending the run on first and second downs with great strength at the point of attack. With the ability to play anywhere along an odd front and having desirable length to play outside, his greatest value could come for a 3-4 defense.

I do not for the life of me understand why anyone Up Here thinks Zorn should stay.

I cannot think of one single aspect of head coaching that he has clearly mastered.

The less involved he has been, the better they have played.
Now, he prowls the sideline like a caged lion. A caged lion that's on Ambien. A caged white lion, named Kimba.
They need to take away red zone playcalling, the ability to use timeouts (improperly, as proven when Danny Smith nearly had to beat him to death!), and the challenge flag.
Put him up in a nice, plush box high above the stadium surface. Let him listen on the headphones. And give him his FU money on January 4.
Please, for the love of god. Remember that the man gets two press conferences and two radio/tv shows a week. Do you really want to hear him blathering on about how the play call was "perfect", that "we need to execute better", or that "I might have to put him down" for another whole year?

Hip Hip Whatever

Kimba.

SENIOR PROSPECTS

1. OLT Trent Williams, Oklahoma
6-4e, 310e, 5.15e

Williams' work habits have come under fire and will be more closely examined prior to the draft. He might not have ideal height or overall desired length for a left tackle, with relatively short arms. But he is very clearly athletic enough to handle the edge with great feet to match up against speedy edge rushers and cut off the corner. He has struggled some since moving to the left side on a very inexperienced and injury-riddled Oklahoma offensive line. Quietly has battled through some injuries, but when Williams is healthy, it is very easy to see that he possesses legitimate talent, with great strength and agility. He still projects as an early pick.

2. OLT Russell Okung, Oklahoma State
6-6e, 300e, 5.3e

A four-year starter with outstanding length and very good strength, Okung is more suited to play on the right side than the left. Tends to lean and lunge and generate more movement as a run blocker, although he has enough talent to survive on the left side in the pros with consistent chip help. Okung has a somewhat linear build, tends to play a bit upright and is not a great foot athlete, all of which will give evaluators some pause and could keep him from ever becoming an elite pro. But he can sink his hips and bend well enough to play with some power and will play to the most of his ability given his strength of character.

at this point getting a new QB wouldn't help at all because of the fact the skins don't have strong offensive line that can protect him if a rookie QB get hit on consistent bases what ends up happening is that he'll eventually lose his confidence so right now keep Campbell until you build solid o-line once you do that then you can go and look for franchise QB.

Don't panic. Build the o-line and an air-tight defense. Give CAMPBELL a chance to play with a decent o-line, and use PORTIS for a change in 2010. Too much of a salary-cap hit to let him go - unless the cap is off next year, then deal for a RB. Worry about JC in 2011 draft. I really think JASON is a better than average NFL q-back. Of course, Mr. "Where's the bling" SNYDER won't stand for GIBBS" pick at q-back so all this conjecture is just that.

No panic, liked your thought process and wanted to see what you thought on those two positions.

JC needs to be tendered and kept for at least next year, so agree there.

CP, if healthy and changes his practice habits (someone mentioned getting smaller earlier which is a great idea) paired w/Ganther and maybe a speedback like Alrige would work as well for at least 2010.

Looks to me like an uncapped year coming, so we should be able to afford these moves.

"Robinson subsequently sat out all of Texans training camp before finally signing a one-year, $9.957 million tender a week before the 2009 NFL season began. In the Texans' first game against the New York Jets, Robinson's shoes bore the message "PAY ME RICK," directed at Texans' General Manager Rick Smith. Robinson was fined $25,000 by the NFL for wearing the shoes."

I don't know, could be suspect character, maybe Vinny should ask Gibbs what he would do. Of course, he'd need travel to Boston to borrow bean' s time machine (and hopefully get struck by lightning) so he can ask Gibbs in 1982.

Actually it's a great list Glawrence007, but it would require some deep pockets and an uncapped year, the secondary alone would probably eat up all of our available cap space.

FF Hamsters Playoff Preview

Cue stirring music …. 6 teams, 1 championship. Are you ready?

The easy stuff first, my Cal Salmon and Suzanne’s Trippin’ Billies are getting a bye this week. There are 2 games, Stump’s Here and Now Coproliths plays 4th’s Raljohn Realskins and cHriS LaRrY’s Carroll Street F Bombers plays Zornskins’ Zornskins.

Copro is a team to watch. The 3rd seed led the league in scoring by a bunch, scoring 99 or more points in 5 of his last 6 games. He’s solid at QB with Warner, and has an amazing group of receivers. The group includes the league’s #1 WR Randy Moss, and #1 TE, Vernon Davis. Ochocinco has been good and Santonio Holmes is on a hot streak – and with Hines Ward out, Holmes is the man in Pittsburgh. Of course, Copro’s run game isn’t chopped liver. Chris Johnson is the #1 scorer in all of FF. Mendenhall and Jonathan Stewart are his RB compliments. Finally, his iggle defense is 2nd in the league.

Zornskins has the challenge of Copro in the opener and he’s not going to roll over. Zorny is led by iggles and cowboys. romo is his starting QB, 5th overall. If there is one RB that can match Johnson, its Adrian Peterson, but he faces a stiff Cincy defense. Zorny will need to select from barber, mccoy, Moreno, Norwood (if Michael Turner is out), and Jerome Harrison for his other RB starter(s). He has two of the most surprising WRs, in Sidney Rice, and miles austin, plus two Seahawks, Housh and Burleson, that face a mediocre Texans defense. It will be tough for Zorny, though. His likely starters play Cincy, SD, Indy, nyg. Zorny hasn’t hit triple digits in a game since week 7, and it’ll be a major upset if he advances beyond round 1.

cL’s F Bombers have been a on a roll. Just ask cL, who will tell you he’s on a roll. Finishing 2nd in the league in points scored (just ahead of the bye week pair), he has 95 or more points in 6 of his last 7 games. Part of it is due to Rivers and Steven Jackson, who are both – wait for it – on a roll. Part of it is due to 2 guys who took over starting roles in mid-season, Jamaal Charles and Maroney. cL is strong at WR, with 3 of the top 7 in FF -- Wayne, desean jax and Roddy White. He has some favorable match-ups this week, a key might be his red hot Jets defense vs Tampa.

4th’s Realskins have their work cut out. His QB choice is between Alex Smith and Carson Palmer, with the latter playing Minny this week. If the Realskins are to upset cL, the receivers are probably the key. Andre and Calvin Johnson are both capable of huge games, while Derrick Mason and celek are both solid scorers. His RBs have favorable matchups, Ganther vs Oakland and Ricky Williams vs Jax. Plus he has the Viking defense, always capable of a huge game. Still, it will be a tough test for a team that topped 100 points only once this year.

In the Peeps league, the byes went to Tampa’s imaginatively named Noone Tampa and my Futaleufu Swimmers (and if you want to see a Futaleufu swimmer, those are my legs in the black neoprene -- http://www.pbase.com/faerie_39/image/101671809. And that’s me, back left, in the same spot a few days later, without the swim -- http://www.pbase.com/faerie_39/image/57520753).

This weeks matchups feature Alex’s 35332’s Zombie Hord vs Future Winners and Houston Buffaloes vs Redcoat’s Fins Eat Skins.

Hord will ride Drew Brees, the #1 QB and a very strong receiving group that features desean jax, ochocinco and the white hot Robert Meacham. He is solid at RB, with Mendenhall, Ryan Grant and Maroney. His kicker, Longwell, is #1. His bench includes JuJones and a rejuvinated Chris Chambers. Hord finished the season with 3 straight games topping 110 points. The matchups look pretty good, so Hord should be tough in round 1.

Future Winners has a QB that can match Brees, the league’s #2 QB, Aaron Rodgers, who should be good against da Bears. Pierre Thomas, Ricky Williams and Mike Bell are a good trio at RB, especially if the Saints decide to pound the rock vs ATL. Two of his WR’s have the benefit of playing for Indy, Collie and Garcon, while Fred Davis has a good matchup vs Oakland this week. If Future pulls the upset, it might come from his Steeler defense, playing Cleveland tonight.

The Buffaloes have only 1 major star, Randy Moss – and several guys who are capable of big games, as the cliché goes, in ‘any given week’. His QB choices go head to head, Palmer vs Favre. Hightower and Tomlinson are his mainstay RBs. While they have only 1 100 yard rushing between them all year, both guys score TDs and catch passes. manningham, maclin and Carlson are his top receivers, it’d be helpful if a couple of those guys got into the end zone if he is to upset Redcoat’s Fins. The Buffs scored triple digits only twice all season.

The Fins team was hurt when Ronnie Brown went down. Prior to that, the Fins had to be considered a top contender. Especially with his other RBs, Adrian Peterson and DeAngelo Williams. HIs flex options show how he has scrambled since Brown’s injury. Norwood, Chris Brown and Devin Hester. His receivers are an interesting group. Vernon Davis has been terrific, Donald Driver an overachiever and Devone Bess, who gets decent yards but just 1 TD this year. The QB is romo, and we’ll not be surprised if he’s in a shoot out vs SD this week. Fins might benefit from two other slots, his kicker, Jay Feely playing in Tampa and his Saints defense, #1 in the league, vs a banged up Falcon offense. One of the league’s top scoring teams early in the year, Fins has crossed the 90 point mark only once in the last 4 games.

Get haynesworth to report next season at 315-322lbs if not start fining players who are overweight and not in shape many of these people make alot of money and can't/won't get in better condition that is pathetic. fire zorn and hire sherm lewis as the head coach the offense changed around for the better dramatically when he took over the passing play calling I want him to take over the red-zone play calling, also take "pumpkin puss zorn" out of the play calling totally the team will be better off.

ESPN rumors:


Rams' 2010 QB plans
12:19
PM ET
St. Louis Rams Top Email

The latest word on Marc Bulger is that he's likely to miss the remainder of the 2009 season, and there's no certainty that he'll be back in St. Louis beyond. In order to keep their options open, the Rams signed Mike Reilly off of the Packers' practice squad to a deal that will run through next season, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

Both Reilly and current backup Keith Null are Division II products, but as we know, current starter Kyle Boller -- who played at Cal in the Pac-10 -- hasn't been helped by having such a strong pedigree. Moreover, the team's most recent success came with Kurt Warner (of the esteemed powerhouse Northern Iowa) at the helm. Judging from this, one can argue that collegiate pedigree is less important to the franchise.

Of course, before anyone goes out to buy a Null or Reilly jersey, bear in mind that the Rams are likely to draft a QB this April (just not with their Top 3 pick), and could be in the mix for free agent-to-be Jason Campbell. Campbell is likely done in DC, but he has a chance to rejuvenate his career in the right situation:

I get the logic.

But he drafted a linebacker last year after deciding he needed a tackle, and folks renewed.

And who's to say drafting a quarterback is something that shouldn't be done?

As much as JC has impressed recently, he still hasn't done the one thing that matters:

Win games with his arm.

And until he shows he can do this on the regular, well, drafting a first round quarterback might just be the thing to do.

"I've got you taking Spiller in the first and one of these two in the 2nd if available. When are you drafting "

Moe's moves:

I trade the '11 1st rounder away for a 2nd rounder in '10 or 3rd rounder and lower round pick.

If I get what I want, 3 picks in the first 2 rounds, I draft:

1st--Spiller

2nd--Ciron Black

2nd--Bradford, Locker

I resign L Jones and let him and Heyer fight over the left tackle spot.

The outcome should be a starter (Jones) and a guy who can backup both tackle spots (Heyer).

I keep Sellars around as the blocking tight end to support them.

Todd Yoder is my fullback in front of Spiller, and they both have excellent hands.

I move Ciron Black to right tackle thinking like the vikes did when they took P Loadholdt and moved him.

With my second round pick in '11, I draft another tackle.

I'm not Vinny.

Looking at FA and the Draft, I don't see an upgrade. This team has so many more glaring needs that JC is the best answer at QB. If JC walks then this team will replicate their 2009 season in 2010.

I believe he is a second tier QB and fits anywhere between 12th-15th at his position. I’ll give him credit though, just like in college he has shown improvement every year and with an upgraded line I believe that is our best recipe for success next year.

I like the idea of collecting picks but by trading a 2011 1st for a 2010 2nd, but he better be too good to pass up or that one guy that could put you over the hump.

The tackles are the problem. The improvement over the past three weeks has been the interior o-line push on run blocking. Notice GANTHER got yards right up the gut. First time this year it approached consistancy.

DOCKERY, RABACH, and MIKE WILLIAMS did a very good job last week. I said in the x-games that WILLIAMS looked weak in space, but the few plays where he didn't have to cover much ground he didn't look bad. His body needs to recover from the extreme weight loss it's experienced the past nine months. By next year, he will be better, and I do feel he may have found his place at RG.

We didn't have him there early because RANDY THOMAS was still there. I'm not sure RT comes back other than as a back-up. I still am not impressed with RINEHART. I did like what EDWIN WILLIAMS brought to the position. Of course, he needs more seasoning.

WIL MONTGOMERY is an excellent player, but just too small for the NFL. His only position has to be back-up center which can be addressed with a draft pick in 2011.

OKUNG and BLACK will give us the new blood we need on the line at the tackle positions. JONES is fine for certain situations and injury back-up until 2011. Same with HEYER, but neither is an every down tackle; LEVI no longer, and STEPHON never was.

A fourth rounder at tackle gives us new blood to push HEYER and JONES for back-up positions, and we still need a guard to replace back-up LG BATISTE, the only position he plays adequately. Again, 2011 draft.

Give Haynesworth an A for effort but the price tag for this pt player is too steep, just like we're stuck with Portis for another year who's play will be less than it was this year. Sorry but I get the impression that Clinton decided to shut it down for the rest of the year. He gets his money plus guaranteed for next year, so why suit it up again? Like Deion Sanders, he's playing ole Danny boy like a drum. Since Zorn is still under contract, Synder should retain him as the offensive coordinator and groom him to be a future head coach under an experienced coach. He's a decent guy but needs to learn the nuiances of head coaching. There is something fundamentally wrong with our defense not being able to stop teams late in the game. Not only are long drives sustained, but opposing players make make dramatic, clutch plays. The QB scrambles out of reach. The WR make circus catches. Running backs make long runs. Our defense seems to tamp down instead of getting up. It's like they have a choke around their necks. They play scared as if waiting for something good to happen instead of making it happen. It has been just this year, but years past also, under different coaches. What's wrong here?
