Springs, Washington, Montgomery Still Iffy

From Jason Reid:

Cornerback Shawn Springs (calf) and strong-side linebacker Marcus Washington (shoulder) were limited in practice and said they might play against the Cowboys, although Zorn was more confident about Springs than Washington.

"I don't know about Marcus, but I'm much more encouraged" about Springs, Zorn said. "I did see Shawn run around, and I'm more encouraged about Shawn than Marcus. We'll just have to wait and see."

Springs has played in only four of nine games this season because of injuries. A 12-year veteran, he sat out the season-opening loss to the New York Giants because of a shin injury, and inured his calf in the third quarter of a 26-24 victory over Dallas at Texas Stadium on Sept. 28.

During the first half, Springs was outstanding in press-man coverage against Dallas wide receiver Terrell Owens. "I don't know yet," Springs said. "All they can do is test it [before the game]. You'll know if you can push off and sprint."

Washington has missed two games this season because of recurring hamstring problems. "I did everything in practice today," Washington said.

Anthony Montgomery, who has an Achilles' injury, is not expected to play Sunday, Zorn said.

On the official Skins blog (the Matt Terl one), before he relays lots of high spirits from individual players, he starts with his take (and this is a blogger paid by the team mind you) on what he's seeing on the field. This is kind of what I have been expecting (and fearing) ... sloppy swagger:

"Practice itself felt odd because it was, again, very high energy, and yet a lot of what I was seeing on the field seemed somehow ragged. A few more dropped passes than usual, a very uncharacteristic Jason Campbell underthrow that should’ve been intercepted, things like that. Nothing I could specifically put my finger on, and there were certainly plenty of positive signs, but I couldn’t shake the feeling that something was unusual."

From that Matt Terl (official Skins blog):

... DeAngelo Hall broke up a few passes, and Carlos Rogers also pulled down an INT. They look completely ready for the game. That was an impression that was confirmed when I talked to Rogers afterward. “Besides me looking good, I think the vibe was good also,” he said. ...

That line kind of sounds like something T.O. would say. That would make Rogers a shorter, less famous T.O. without the soft hands.

We go off looking for a bar and we can't find one. Finally Brasky takes me to a vacant lot and says, 'Here we are.' We sat there for a year and a half and sure enough someone constructs a bar around us.

The day they opened we ordered a shot, drank it, and then burned the place to the ground. Leigh Torrence yelled over the roar of the flames, 'Always leave things the way you found em!'

FYI- John Thompson Show just had Jerry Jones on...I highly recommend going to espn980.com and listening to the interview. Also, they just had an SI writer (Damen somebody) who apparently has an article on CP in this week's issue. I guess it focuses on the impact of 21's death on him and how he's rededicated himself and dedicated the season to Sean. Sounds defintiely worth checking.

Governor Mark Warner of VA held a press conference to address the overwhelming sense of sadness VA residents have expressed over Leigh Torrence leaving for New Orleans. When one reporter reminded the gov that Washington DC was not actually part of VA and that the Redskins actually are based in Landover Maryland, the governor replied, "Damnit man! Pull yourself together! We have to stick together at times like these!" Warner then proceeded to look up to the sky and exclaimed, "Why Leigh!? WHY!!!!????"

So Torrence yells, “I’m Leigh Torrence and no one gets me wet!” So he climbs into the tank, grabs Shamu and throws the whale into the audience, splashes him and yells, “How do you like it?!” And then damn if Torrence didn’t step in there and finish the show!

Not that it matters because they didn't play him even when he was healthy, but Felix Jones is officially out for Sunday... Also re: the idiotic Newman quote, later in the interview he predicted that the Cowgirls were going to "make a statement" on Sunday. I'm guessing the entire Cowgirls team locked in a room together and spotted a noun, verb and period couldn't make a statement.

I've got my Victory Golden Monkey and Ommegang Three Philosophers on ice and waiting for Sunday. F the Cowgirls! Goodbye and God bless, Leigh Torrence! Hail Skins!

Asked if he was 100% comfortable with Matt Cassell as his starting QB from now on, Belichick responded "Cassell? We're going to a Wild Torrence formation."

In Owens' 12-year career he has faced the Redskins nine times, catching 36 balls for 479 yards and seven touchdowns.

That = 4 catches for 53 yards per game average, 13.3 yards per catch. I think we have split with owens overall in games and he had the ball striped and singlhandedly lost a game while with the eagles.

Dirty 30 needs to take a page from the Reaper's (RIP) book on Sunday night. Take a shot at him early in the game. It'll be a 15 yard PF but TO's arms will shrink he'll be looking for #30 for the rest of the night.

Don't understand how M. Washington can be iffy for Sunday if he fully participated in practice. He's played with more severe injuries than a sore shoulder, so why would Zorn be holding him out when they need him on D? I wonder if Springs is going to play much, if at all, on Sunday because of the signing of Hall. Maybe he's thinking of not playing rather than to be a nickel corner who plays only on certain downs.

As for releasing Springs, his contract is up this year and I doubt there will be a huge market for a 33-yr. old corner who is always hurt. Jerry Gray has told him that he needs to switch to safety if he wants to prolong his career like Rod Woodson (although I wouldn't put Springs in his category). Don't expect Springs to be a starter the rest of the year unless Smoot and/or Rogers gets hurt.

The Truth is a regular on the blog.

It's hard, if not impossible, to be cool on a blog. Sure, there are some three dimensional characters up here, but just the cartoon kind. I'm not sure what cool really means anymore anyway. There's gotta be something more current. Like the fist bump replacing the gimme 5 hand slap. I just don't know what it might be but there must be something. I don't know cause, I'm on a blog.
