You can't spell Friday without a T, C, C or L...

165 TCCLs - London Fletcher

Just keeps on ticking. Dude has never missed a game, keeping a 10-year streak going, while another remarkable one, that belonging to teammate Jason Taylor, ended. Fletcher was all over Brian Westbrook on Sunday, particularly on some key third downs, and he and Rocky McIntosh delivered some big blows early; fracturing Westbrook's ribs changed that game for good.

125 TCCLs - The Training Staff

Yes, the Skins have some bumps and bruises, but the spate of endless hamstring strains seems to be behind them now. Players are missing only a few weeks at a time with ailments, and several players have made remarkable recoveries from major injuries, Carlos Rogers and McIntosh among them.

39 TCCLs - The Auburn Connection

This could be a time when former Auburn teammates Jason Campbell and Carlos Rogers get a little cocky. The 2005 draft picks may be playing like Pro Bowlers and keying victories every week, but the other day they were the last two dudes off the field, running laps about 35 minutes after practice. Now, some would say, that Rogers was a bit too cocky his first few years in the league - when his play fluctuated wildly - but he's doing less of that now, and performing like a shutdown corner every weekend. Both could be looking at big-time paydays just a bit down the road.

-2 TCCLs - Jansengate

I've been pretty much on board with everything the Z-Man has done so far from the giddy-up, but I think he's overvaluing Stephon Heyer a little. This offensive line is bonding, Jansen has been stout and many offensive veterans believe Jansen should be riding with them right now, especially with the running game blossoming. To me it should be Jansen's job unless or until his play warrants him losing it again.

-168 TCCLs - Punts Returned to the House

Rookie punter Durant Brooks has pretty much given away 14 points already, and if he isn't strong Sunday against Dante Hall, more could follow. The Rams could be going all-out on special teams given their horrendous state, and Brooks needs to get his game in order.

Club320, I'm not sure what you mean by "run", but if it's women you're talking about then I beleive you must "get in where you fit in".

Hello Redskins Nation.

We are very excited to have the team come home after winning two NFC East road games against the Dallas Cowboys and the Philadelphia Eagles. HAIL!

This week we have the St. Louis Rams, and this will not be an easy game, especially if we want to maintain our growth and standing the NFC East, the NFC conference, and the league.

We are the only team in the NFL with a battle cry (Hail to the Redskins!). And now we are the only team in the NFL with a post-game celebrate chant thanks to our new Head Coach Jim Zorn (Hip-Hip Hooray!).

After beating the Dallas Cowboys, the supposedly best team in the NFL, Jim Zorn in the locker led the team in a celebration chat of Hip-Hip Hooray. It would be exciting to have the entire stadium, and the Redskins Nation, join the team in the celebration chant before they head to the locker room.

My brother and I are organizing the first Hip-Hip Hooray celebration chant this Sunday after our team beats the St. Louis Rams at the stadium. If it is clear at the 2:00 minute warning of the 4th quarter that the Washington Redskins will win the game we ask that all Redskins fans in the stadium (we will be at the game in Section 424---Row 12---Seats 7, 8 & 9) to join us in a celebration chant of Hip-Hip Hooray!

If it is not clear by the 2:00 minute warning of the 4th quarter that we will win the game then we will start the chant 30 seconds later at 1:30 minute mark. If not then, then 30 second later at the 1:00 minute mark. If not then, then 30 seconds later at the 30 second mark.

You get the pattern. At some point at the 2:00 minute warning of the 4th quarter or after we want to do the chant if it is clear we will win the game. We do not want to do the chant before the 2:00 minute warning of the 4th quarter!

To make it easy for everyone to participate for the first time we asking that the entire stadium join together in the Hip-Hip Hooray chant in unison. And yes brings to celebrate.

If we are successful in getting fans to join in after the game this week, then we will organize the second chant with sections of the stadium doing the call (Hip-Hip) and the other sections doing the response (Hooray!).

We hope this celebration chant will become a tradition for Redskins fans attending the game after each victory.

Please join us this Sunday for a big Hip-Hip Hooray, after we win the game.

Wow Joe Theesman eh? Is there no former Redskin who's soul is not for sale?

LFB is the man. I don't like talking streaks though. Good pickup for sure.

The Jansen thing is tough, I can see it from both sides.

Special Teams must get better.

We know J. Taylor is coming back slowly from his compartmental syndrome thing. Any word on how is knee sprain/starin is coming along? Can we assume that it's behind him?

Posted by: dlhaze1 | October 10, 2008 10:11 AM | Report abuse

The Jansen thing to me is an easy one. Heyer sits, Jansen plays.

The run game has just BLOWN up since JJ has been in. Maybe Heyer needs this to piss him off, and get him angry enough to run block better who knows, all I know is 2.8, versus 5.5.

Thems is facts...

-Good call greg the same thing worked for Jansen now its Heyers turn to Stew.

I really cant be too worried about Dante Hall he is not nearly the player he once was for a brief period of time.

Totally agree on Jansengate.
It's Jasen's job to lose. He didn't look good in the pre-season so he lost his job. Now he's playing like a starter and should stay a starter. You don't bench a veteran that's playing well in place of a young guy with up side. Let the Heyer heal and learn.

"back when Barno still liked me (at least I think he did)."

By Jason La Canfora

Wow that must have been a long time ago. I just want my DVD. Now I've been forced to take matters into my own hands and ask Cooley directly for it!

how is it that our punt coverage is so much worse than our kickoff coverage? is it enough to say that the punter is to blame? it seems our kickoff coverage is staggeringly good over the last two games.

Posted by: DreamOutLoud | October 10, 2008 10:34 AM | Report abuse

Good point we are killing teams on kick coverage. Who is leading there?

Posted by: alex35332 | October 10, 2008 10:37 AM | Report abuse

it seems like every kickoff if fielded between the goalline and the 5 yard line and is returned shy of the 20. and to add to that, it seems many of our tackles are REALLY hard a fumble could happen on any play.

i can't figure out why we are so darn good on this but then giving up big punt returns.

You're eating too much raisin bran for breakfast because the best part of you went down the toilet. Jansen is stout? What game are you watching? Jansen was out of most plays. If he has to delay the defensive guy right in front of him, fine but if he's got to move sideways, omg, he's out of the play. Case in point, last drive, Jason has to scramble and passes to El. Guess who gets pushed down to the ground. Right, Jansen. Of course his team mates are going to say he's doing the job. They can't say he's lost it, because he has. Of course Bugel is not going to bad mouth him because Buges has one fault - loyalty. The blocking is great because of Mike Sellers, CP, wide receivers downfield, Pete Kendall coming around from the left side, etc. And besides what makes you know more than Zorn? Eat cheerios buddy and forget the raisin bran.

getitritegov: so you think it's a coincidence that our running game has exploded since JJ has been in the game?

Posted by: DreamOutLoud | October 10, 2008 10:55 AM | Report abuse

yea I have to question that logic too, getitrite...Portis has gone for over 125 on the road twice in a row. I know runing left has been our strongest point, but you have to give Jansen some credit for that. And I believe JC was sacked 3 times total in those 2 games - not bad for a guy who's "lost it". He's not Ray Brown old, he's only 32, not ancient by any means for an O-lineman, even a tackle. I agree that Heyer (GO TERPS!) is the future, but given his injury and the more than serviceable job JJ has done off the bench, he may not be the present. Either way I'm psyched that Springs and probably Taylor are playing.

I would almost rather Taylor stay out another week to give him more time to heal.
