JC and the Weekly TCCLs

It's Friday ... That means TCCLs, people.

129 TCCLs - Jason Campbell is playing like the truth right now. He's been dang-near perfect in the fourth quarter the last two weeks and if he can take this show on the road and remain anything close to thing effective in the clutch, then perhaps those still riding the Colt Brennan bandwagon might jump to No. 17's.

89 TCCLs - Santana Moss has put together his best back-to-back games in a long time. He's had a lot of success getting behind Dallas's safeties before, too. Now, he won't have Roy Williams there helping him out, getting caught too shallow.

24 TCCLs - The interior of the line. Casey Rabach, Pete Kendall and Randy Thomas did a heck of a job on Dockett up front last week, and I was remiss in not mentioning it sooner (-5 TCCLs to me for that). Another huge test awaits with Dallas' 3-4 front.

-10 TCCLs - The rookie class. Chris Horton is balling out, but the rest of the guys, not so much. Last week it was more of the same. Kelly, Rinehart, Tryon, Jackson were not active. Brooks got himself ripped by the coach on the sidelines. Brennan is the No. 3 QB. Moore finally made his debut on teams. Davis can't get on the field much. Thomas has some pass interference issues, but my man Doc Walker thinks he's about to blow up. He certainly has the size and body to make things happen downfield, but when will the lightbulb go on?

-95 TCCLs - This will be the 95th meeting between these teams, and the final regular-season one at Texas Stadium. Seems like that's been overshadowed a bit this week. Sure, that stadium is a dump, and I for one won't miss it, but it's more the memories and moments that it represents - the history that took place within it - that matter. Maybe if the schedule-makers had rigged this for a Week 17 match-up, it might have engendered more feeling, but this is a huge game nonetheless and one I'm pretty pumped to see live.

-133 TCCLs - Acute compartment syndrome. Yikes. This stuff is no joke. Jason Taylor is having a hard time just moving around, much less playing football. Scary, scary story to hear. His games-played streak is over, but the star DE was worried about losing his football career and potentially more. Several of his teammates figure they are going to have to get by without him for the first half of the season, and we wish him all the best as he recovers from what was clearly a traumatic experience.

I agree that D Thomas is about to go off. he is getting open down field, the one thing we need right now.

JC is great at spreading the ball around, but D Thomas was way open for a long time until JC saw him.

BTW, his dance was ridiculous. Pointing to his watch (this was halfway thru, didnt see the first half) then to his number (apparently it was 'his time'); then he smoothed his arms, flicked off his chin straps (looked like he almost took off his helmet, maybe his brain decided to interject), then did a index fingers extended, twirly thing... then he realized it wasnt a TD>..


bad, bad dance. I love cp's where he shines his shoes...

Let's all guess what comes after the "-10 TCCLs for the rookie class" comments...

All together now...who drafted the class? What does it mean if they do poorly?

1, 2, 3...

Uh, how about 29 TCCLs for Leigh Torrence's helmet on that interception, huh? Follow that with 22 TCCL's for Carlos "Hands of Stone" Rogers...

Posted by: 4skinz | September 26, 2008 7:32 AM | Report abuse

Yeah, I disagree Jasno... 3 players are basically starters out of this draft class.

Our 1st pick who prolly wouldnt be if not for injury, but guarantee he will/would have been by the end of the year. Thats good for a Wr in the 2nd... despite what the other WR's are doing. Just shows it was a strong class

TE who would probably be #2 if we didnt have a stout #2 in Yodes...

Kelley, prolly a mistake, but not enough to say the entire draft was a bust.

Brooks, showing he can be a good punter, forget his holding, he is 21/22... he should just be punting

Horton - A 7th round compensatory pick who has made plays and was named D player of the week. Anyone wanna find out who the last Skins D Player of the week was? I dont know and dont have time, but i would guess it was ST against GB when he intercepted Farve twice

The rest werent and shouldnt be expected to contribute right away.

We were only getting recievers to play right away, the rest was building for the future.

We need to keep that in mind/=.

From Jason Reid on Wednesday of this WEEK!!!

Rookie wide receiver Devin Thomas took a big step in last Sunday's 24-17 victory over the Arizona Cardinals, Washington Redskins quarterback Jason Campbell said yesterday.

Although Thomas had one reception for seven yards, "he was in there competing," Campbell said. "I feel like he was kind of getting a grasp of the NFL, getting a grasp of what it's like running routes against corners in this league. He was a lot better, so that's good to see."

So, judging by this, is it safe to say that the light bulb has gone on??

Posted by: Greg | September 26, 2008 8:24 AM | Report abuse

This is how we just point out -ve. I think Brooks as a great potenial, along with the -ve point the postive, like his 56 yard punt which pinned the Cardnials back.

Point out how Thomas is getting open, his 16 yard run. For the first pass interference call, how the corner pulled him first. Be balanced dude. Say how hard he works on the special teams. Most rookie receivers start to contribute towards the second half of the first season.


This man just wants to take shots at VC, that is whole purpose and mantra of reporting. For one week after the tampering saga, the post editors put a curfew on this man, but JLC was just itching ...

so guys here we are back to NORMAL JLC blog. NEGATIVITY .....

Coach Zorn said:

"I just don't have the animosity yet, you know what I mean?" Zorn said. "And I'm the head football coach here and we're supposed to. But I'm sure I'll get there at some point down the road here. We did with the Raiders [when Zorn was a quarterback and assistant coach with Seattle]. So if it's anything like the Seahawk and Raider rivalry, there's certain things that create that, and I'm just waiting for it."

Gus, may I suggest you temper your enthuasiasm a little bit. As you are in beautiful, though traffic-clogged, Northern Virginia I will draw on history to present the problem facing the Skins.

In fact Gus, why don't you take a drive over to the Bull Run battlefield and see if you can't improve your thinking on the nature of superior fire power. Make an application from history Gus to get your mind around what the Skins are confronting this Sunday. Picture the Cowboys holding the high ground, Romo manning the field's most modern, powerful and elusive cannon, protected by unmovable bulwarks in his mammoth OL. TO and Witten at forward positions too fast for the Redskins to outmaneuver. Felix Jones running errands all over the field with undetectable speed, and then, the battlewinner. Marion "the battering ram" Barber pentetrates the Skins defenses repeatedly until their will is simply overwhelmed and broken. The Redskins band mournfully strikes up taps as the Cowboys banner is hoisted high for all Virginia to see.

Anon,

I like Kelly better based on his college performances and what he can potentially bring to the table down the road, but if Thomas wakes up like they're saying he's starting to, then your points are valid. Alvin Harper could only run one route and he was a nice complementary receiver.

Dallas looses to the redskins in the last game at Texas stadium between the two rivals.

Barber has never hurt our team in fact we own him, and romo will throw at least two interceptions.

Posted by: Flounder | September 26, 2008 8:36 AM | Report abuse

From the Times, just a snippet:

But Davis' addition also represented a growing trend in the league: the need for a second tight end with receiving skills.

Dallas, which hosts Washington on Sunday, selected Martellus Bennett to team with Pro Bowl tight end Jason Witten. The New York Jets, with Chris Baker and Bubba Franks on the roster, took Dustin Keller in the first round. And Kansas City drafted Brad Cottam in the third round to join Tony Gonzalez.

So perhaps this wasn't so crazy after all....

Good point anon, its more the negative, "brooks got himself ripped by the coach", versus the factual, and positive, brooks nailed a 56 yard punt.

Darrell,

According to your fans and the national media, you guys have been heading there for the last 10 years, the only problem is that when you get the chance to get there you choke and will continue to do so.

If the season ended after Nov. you guys would be the champs every year, problem is those pesky months of Dec. and Jan. when real teams step up, you guys hang it up.

Flounder, go for a walk or run and clear your head. When you get back, find a room where you can just sit and think, I mean really think, for a half an hour. Turn off you cell phone, don't even tell anybody where you are going. Then, focus your noodle on one concept: are the Dallas Cowboys on the verge of another dynasty. Are they solid and young at core positions, compared with the Skins and the rest of the league. Will they be adding more hardware to their burgeoning trophy cabinet. Oh yes, bring some tissues and a snickers or two because when reality dawns you will need them.

It's tough to prepare for the playoffs on a beach in Mexico. Just ask Tony Romo. I guess he needed to get away and clear his mind after botching that snap...You know refocus and get ready for that year's playoffs. Worked real well didn't it?

Darrell,

The great choke a Romo, had 5 Int's in Dec. last year, and then 1 more Int. in the playoff LOSS to the Giants.

That is clutch for you, man how this guy gets so much respect is beyond me.

can you say CHOKE

Posted by: Flounder | September 26, 2008 8:47 AM | Report abuse

Let's break this down:

Romo has never won a big game in his life.

TO is 35 years old, and although he's a beast, he's also a time bomb and 35 YEARS OLD! You don't build franchises around receivers who are on the wrong side of 30.

Barber is a good back, but he's never been the man. Not a Minnesota, not in Dallas, not anywhere. He runs upright, which everyone agrees will shorten his career substantially. Felix Jones looks like the real deal, but he's never carried the entire load either. Not at Arkansas and he isn't a 20-25 carry back either.

Witten is a stud. You're probably set there for 5-6 more years.

The D is solid, but not come playoff time. So all those pro-bowls don't amount for shti.

Don't see a dynasty here boys...Sorry.

Oh, and your head coach is just keeping the seat warm for the OC. God forbid injuries strike your team, then Wade is gone and Garrett is in. Dynasty...don't think so.

Rich, you seem like an earnest young man so I will once again treat you with understanding and kindness. Yes, the Boys have had a period of rebuilding. And that has included a bobbled snap and a surprising loss last year to the Giants, whom the Boys had emasculated in the regular season. Those are called learning pains, which most emerging dynasties experience. However, school is out now for the Cowboys. The diploma is on the wall (straight As, double major) and this team is now ready to assume its rightful and historic place of leadership atop the NFL. Rich my boy, just be pleased that you were there to see this dynasty at its beginning. Someday your own children will beg to hear the stories of the Cowboys of Romo, Witten and Ware and how they came into their own in 08 and started that long run of Lombardis. Do you like popcorn Rich? May I suggest that you and the rest of Washington's fans get your's ready.

Let's keep in mind that Thomas' stats last week should have included another catch for 61 yds and a TD. Wasn't even holding or anything that could have arguably altered that play; the penalty had no bearing whatsoever on the play. The stats might not show it but he got open and scored. What else do we need before we say he's showing up?

Cindy, I'm not usually critical, but that little photo montage of the Skins cowboys games in TX stadium is just plain depressing. Did Jerry Jones send you all those pics? Couldn't find any good shots beside the fun bunch? At least put one in there of Santana crossing the goal line to the collective silence that was Texas that night.......

And just so you know that last year was not a fluke for Romo playing so bad in Dec.

In 2006 he had 6 Int. in four games in Dec. and although he did not throw an interception in the playoff game, he had a little problem with the field goal snap.

Eh, both the Skins and the Cowboys were one and done in this past January's playoffs. They had far higher expectations and lost at home, while we had all this momentum and emotional energy coming in and lost a winnable game on the road. Ultimately, that's a push -- given the opportunity to play on, neither team advanced.

I don't expect the Skins to win this game, but I know they CAN win it. The beauty of this thing is we've got 12 more games after this one, so there's a ton of drama left to unfold, no matter what happens Sunday.

Actually a vote outside the system isn't a wasted vote. If a third party candidate or party gets enough traction their ideas generally get put into one or more party's platform. Just look at repubs. "Conservative" used to mean limited government up until and through Barry Goldwater. Repubs pulled in the "Christian Conservatives" around the time of Reagan so they could win states in the south. Now "conservative" has a moral component to it that never existed before.

Party platforms are just an umbrella that pulls disparate groups together. So if you believe in the ideas or ideals of a candidate be him Libertarian, Green or otherwise, giving him votes gets those ideas attention.

Have Americans forgotten that, “Together We Stand and Divided We Fall”? In the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks we stood together as a nation, steadfast in our resolve to eradicate terrorism from the global landscape. Admittedly, mistakes have been made in our quest to do so, but I wonder if any of our elected officials have considered another option: Minding our own business. Why must The United States be the world’s policeman? We believe that America is the greatest country the world has ever seen and I would not hesitate to agree. However, as a nation, we should be taking care of our own. It is horrible that children are starving in remote corners of the world but what about children here at home who have little to eat? What about the domestic AIDS epidemic and other rampant social problems that do not receive enough attention and funding? Why spend billions liberating countries who have nothing but disdain for us and our way of life when that money could be better spent ensuring the education for our youth? If we looked harder at ourselves and strengthening our economy, our workforce, our schools, creating desirable jobs, defeating inflation, and meddled less in the internal affairs of other nations we may, once again, find that sense of pride as Americans that would help us cast off the divisive “hyphenated” American titles and emerge as an undivided and strong nation. We were once self-sufficient, proud and strong. We can be again. We should be again. It is our responsibility to care and to cast off the shackles of the recent past, to rise from the depths of apathy and to be great once more.

If I got one wish, it would have all Cowboy fans move to Texas. The air would be a lot cleaner,and we would have more JOBS for us. The Redskins are heading into a Hornet's Nest this Sunday,it being the last game with the Skins there. The stadium will be loud, so the Skins have to score first to keep the noise down. Let's hope Zorn and coaches have the Skins fired up for this great rivalry. The Skins will take advantage of the Cowboys secondary, which then will open up their running game, and that will set up the Big Play. The Skins defense has to shut down their passing game and not give up the Big Play, win the Battle in the Trenches by playing Smashmouth Football, Special Teams need to create good field position, and also a Romo fumble or interception or two. The Skins have the talent and smarts to do that. Jason Campbell has shown that he will win a lot of games with his arm.

DUDE, IT’S THE TRUTH! The Redskins (and that means Vinny) BLEW IT with the draft this year. He completely neglected the two aging lines, and kept draft choices on the roster who were clearly outplayed in the preseason.

Maybe his call to the league was little unnecessary – but lay off JLC for stating the (obvious) truth. So far the Redskins draft this year would overall (Horton looks good and one of the receivers may pan out) be deemed a failure. The majority of the picks can't even make the active line-up and several of the final roster decisions were questionable to say the least.

Larry Michael is a tool.

Go Skins.
