Punting auditions scheduled for Tuesday

With punter Josh Bidwell injured, the Redskins will conduct punting auditions Tuesday at Redskins Park, Coach Mike Shanahan said.

"His hip was sore," Shanahan said. "He's gonna have some doctors look at it on Wednesday. He wants to play in the game. He feels like it's a good chance for him to play, but we'll evaluate that day by day."

Bidwell injured his hip during warm-ups before the St. Louis Rams' 30-16 victory Sunday at the Edward Jones Dome. Place kicker Graham Gano helped Bidwell off the field and handled punting duties during the game.

Bidwell sat out last season with the same injury, so the Redskins are preparing to move forward without him. Punter Hunter Smith, who performed well last season, his only one with the Redskins, is among those who will audition, a person familiar with the situation said.

"Well, there's some concern" about Bidwell, Shanahan said. "We've just gotta see what the doctors say, see what the MRI says. And if we feel like there's an excellent chance that's he's ready to go, then we'll go with Josh. But if there's a question mark that he'll be ready by Friday, then we'll probably go in a different direction."

Portis is Emmitt of 2002 and Torain is Troy Hambrick, who ran upright and with his eyes closed. Portis is done and Torain won't stick. So, you need a guy. Simple as that.

I love how Portis is getting criticised for NOT fumbling and being the 3rd most productive player.

Meanwhile Moss pitched the ball to a Ram (you remember the guys whe embarrased us), where is that post.

Zornahan says Moss was trying to avoid winning so he pitched the ball to the other team

Moss drops unhit almost every catch to prevent fumble an injury.

Even though he is a blitzer and his name ain't Wolf, I wouldn't exactly call Haslett an artiste at the use of the technique. The Rams seemed to know who was coming most of the time and effectively thwarted most of the blitzes the Skins called. The upcoming game against the Eagles could be a real bloodbath if the Skins continue to blitz at the level that they have been. When you blitz, most of the time you have a vulnerably somewhere that you are gambling the QB won't be able to spot. With an agile QB like Vick at the top of his game the score could easily be 35-0 by halftime. Smoked. Like a big, bouncy bag of buds.

Love the people piling on Portis for that big run...you know, the very thing that everybody said he was incapable of to begin with. If he doesn't go down and gets trucked by the 3 DBs surrounding him, promptly fumbling the ball, he'd get run outta town. But the falls to the turf with the ball neatly tucked under his arm and he's getting killed for not getting an extra 2-3 yards. Wow...

Also love how the WaPo throws out the nugget of info about having tryouts for punter and then omit who the team is bringing in. Amazing...

Can't wait til Sunday...

It's a little early to talk about college players more so to talk about a junior, but I've really enjoyed watching Akeem Ayers of UCLA. He's a OLB but also is able to rush the passer with his hands down. Dude's a really terrific play maker and teams have to game plan for him.

When he was a Grinderman he would have bulled forward, for there is always the chance that he could break free (we're talking DBs here for Crissakes) and, if not, at least pick up additional yards. Now that he is a Gimperman he plays like skirt-wearing QB, falling down before being hit to prevent injury and to protect the ball.

Bottom line, the skins need to build. They may not call it a "re-building" year, but they have to get younger and better. They need O-line, D-line, ILB, OLB, a free safety, and maybe one or two WR's. That is a boat load of needs but that is the team Shanny inherited.

Next year they should keep McNabb to groom his successor.... keep Big Al to play in a 4-3. Try to hire Dick LeBeau away from the Steelers as the Defensive coordinator.

Please allow me to vent. WTF are we doing game playing one of the highest paid backs in the league to be a third down back, while a player of the practice squad is suppose to be the feature back. Don't want to hear an excuse about the hand. Either he was in the game plan (plan of attack before the game begins) or he wasn't.

DT could be sorry as hell, but could he be any worse than a starting receiver in the NFL with about two catches in 3 games.
You can't score in the redzone because the field shrinks and your target is a 5'9" and the o and d lines are 6'4" and above.

F Davis has a 61 yard catch and a couple of 40+ pass interference calls. Why can't he get on the field more. Sure Cooley is good but how many big plays (yardage) does he have. Besides use both as targets.

As I said last week, all of those players that didn't see LJ getting cut coming should be out the door right behind him.

This is getting very sad now.

What's the excuse going to be next week??Vick runs too much to play defense against? Deshaun Jackson is too fast to cover?

Hasslett (sp)obviously doesn't trust his DB's as much as he proclaims. He blitzes and has his DB's playing cautious so everything is played in front of them. Thus giving the 7-10 yards passes for first downs. Man up and press coverage on some packages and dare someone to beat you deep. We haven't giving up a big TD pass play yet (thats good). But teams have great success on third downs (thats bad and it wears out a defense). As a result we give up more points in the second half of games.

Both McNabb and Vick, Andy Reid's current heart throb, are agile and have strong arms. Both have struggled at times because of accuracy issues and both have balls batted down because they are runts. The ideal NFL QB is at least 6-4 (Peyton Manning, Tom brady, Andrew Luck in the upcoming draft class) with a strong arm. Of course JC gets a check mark in his box and we all know how he turned out.

You make some good points. Please allow me to address them. The problem with the Portis situation is we only know what Shanny tells us, which ain't much. I hope the coach learns in time that D.C. is a media driven town, and it ain't Denver. You've got to release some info, if only to keep the media from speculating and stirring the pot. We don't know when Portis was injured, or if he told the coach before the game

2) I'm trying to have faith in Shanny, but I don't get the DT thing either. How could he produce less than Roydell Williams? Or Galloway?

3) Davis is dreadful blocker. That's what's keeping him off the field.

Scary thought that we only have 4 guys to build around. Would be nice if Carriker, One Man Gang, and Moore could fit in. Maybe Riley, Henson, and Rocky Mac could be quality role players. Offense is much scarier. Anyone that's any good is too old to be in it for the long run save Trent, Cooley, and Davis. Hopefully either Torain or Keiland could fill that old Shanahan "anyone can run in this system" role.

I agree Davis is not the best blocker, neither is Cooley, but I am just saying to utilize his catching ability. He has got to cause match up problems for DB's and LB's. We need production, especially in the redzone.

Shanny also said we got behind in the second half. We were up at one point and only down less than a touchdown and two point conversion most of third and some of the fourth. If we can't run and to keep a balance then, we are in for a long season.

Two things that stand out to me that the Redskins defense doesn't have.

1. NT plays very stout. Kemo's poor play has been well documented.

2. The relentlessness of the pass rushers. In particular Clay Mathews. However it seems like a feeding frenzy when they blitz. LL brings it, so those Rak. I saw Rocky Mac do it once against the cowgrilz.

Open Note to Kyle Shanahan:

Pay attention to how, in lieu of a running game, the Packers are 'dinking and dunking' the ball to the wide side of the field.

They'll go deep eventually, but using the short-mid range passing attack to control the flow of the game (another 11 play drive?) makes sense.

Let the redskin offense play this way, and things'll improve.

Stop with the trade Cooley talk. If anything, they should be using him more in the redzone.


Packers have Cutler rattled. In a year, the Skins defense will be just as confounding.

Posted by: smittdiddy | September 27, 2010 9:47 PM | Report abuse

Again Moe, I'll just say you've got your criticisms misplaced.
The Rams found a substitute for their running game based off the defense we were playing. An aggressive blitzing scheme with a soft secondary lends itself to the short, quick passing game. That's what we were defending with. That's not how the Rams were defending.
With the defense the Rams were playing, the weakness was over the top. They were playing tight and aggressive in the secondary, which allowed Moss, Davis, and even Galloway to get behind the defense on multiple occasions. That's how we entered the red zone, that's how we put points on the board.

Posted by: psps23 | September 27, 2010 4:27 PM

Actually Haslett didn't blitz enough. He brought no extra pressure 21 times and rushed five or six 14 times.

Bradford’s QB rating was 88.8 with three or four rushing.

His QB rating was 40.0 when the Redskins rushed five or six.

When you have two starting CBs that can't cover their shadow, bringing heat is your best chance..

Moving the ball isn't the issue as the Skins are probably pretty high up on yard per play. It's ball control and redzone woes that hurt the skins.

Still rooting for and placing individual players over the team? I've been saying this to you for TWO F'ING YEARS...Root for the UNIFORM and not individual players.

Just remember, when the 'Skins finish with the same record as the Rams, the 'Skins will get the #1 pick based on head-to-head tie breaker. They can then pick their QB of the future, get a middle-round pick from Oakland for McNabb and use it to draft a back.

Posted by: josettes | September 28, 2010 1:53 AM | Report abuse

A friend of mine for over 50 years told me before the season started that Jim Haslett wasn't a good coach for the Skins. I said to him naw Bro, the Skins will be alright with him. Dag I was so wrong and he was so right. He based this on Haslett being the ex-coach of the Rams. He said if Haslett was so good, then why didn't the Rams keep him. Hmmm interesting thought. To run an effective 3-4 defense you have to have linebackers with speed to cover rb's, tight-ends. Playmakers which we don't have. I see a 3 win season coming.

Posted by: butche106 | September 28, 2010 4:04 AM | Report abuse

Not sure why everyone is so puzzled at why they took Portis off the field. He'd basically told his coach midway through the game that his wrist injury meant he couldn't hold on to the ball securely.

When his wrist heals, if it heals, he will get 1st and 2nd down carries. Until that time I expect to see him limited to 3rd downs and used for his pass-blocking. The reason he looked pissed on the sidelines is because Shanny probably had a go at him for not telling him that his wrist was such a problem before that run.

As for Haslett and the 3-4. The odd front has nothing to do with the inability of our DBs to cover the most basic routes or work out where the first down marker is. They couldn't do that last year either. The only real blame I'll lay on Haslett's shoulders is that he didn't refuse to switch to a 3-4 until next year. I understand Shanahan wanted to try it but what is the point of doing it when we've got an entire team of 4-3 personnel.

I understand that the 3-4 offers extra options but most of the great defences have been based on the 4-3. The recent success of 3-4 had a lot to do with the fact that hardly anyone was using. Nobody had much experience playing against it and there was less competition for personnel. Changing over now, when almost half the league uses it as there base defence just looks hopelessly naive
