Well, there you have it boys.

Let the real rebuilding begin! I don't know what the $$ looks like, but Jansen, Washington, Springs, Thrash, Taylor, and perhaps even C. Griffin should be out the door after this year. Probably not possible with cap ramifications.

The bold $$ is not on breaking the bank for Peppers or Boldin, but truly blowing up this Gibbs team and letting Zorn/Cerrato rebuild it; enduring a 4-5 win season next year; developing Campbell with the young WRs; drafting a host of young O-linemen/D-linemen; signing Hall. I mean actual rebuilding.

Is Sameuls actually done for the year? If so, Rinehart to RT and Heyer to LT.....

Also, Heyer had a pretty good game, save for one penalty. Never pull him out again.

Again, somebody PLEASE ask JZ why he punted when he had 1:27 left in the 1st HAlf and we were in THEIR territory and their offensse wasn't moving anywhere??????

the problem is our o-line is built to run, anyone remeber that when AL saunders came and started passing to much how terrible we looked and then Joe gibbs went back to running more.

same thing here our o-line is built for running with moderate throwing,anything over 20 passes a game and they will get abused.

"Gregggggggg blitzed all of the time, and ran zone coverage. By most accounts, Blache generally rushes 4 and couvers man-to-man. They even moentioned this last night."

What telecast were you listening to? What they "mentioned" was that Greg Blache sends 6 or more guys more than any team in the league. I believe the exact stats were sending 6 or more 96 times this season, resulting in 8 sacks.

Ask any regular follower here. Blache runs the same system as Gregg. Look it up yourself if you want.

Re: punting inside 2 minutes in THEIR Territory...

Did it seem like Buges was cussing out JZ because he was about to punt the ball?

I'm sorry, I can't get pass that moment in time at all.....

I agree, Heyer may not be a long term solution but he is more useful than JJ at this point to me, and with no running game anyway due to the CP injury, may as well help the pass.

Honestly, when Portis started to get really dinged up we needed a coach or FO guy who would have steped in and told him, "Your are going to take a game off to get a good 14 days rest, now either you can pick it or we will"

When Philly won all those division titles, what kind of offense were they running??

Posted by: BeantownGreg | December 8, 2008 10:10 AM |

I know I know please call on me.

What is the WCO

He does. The reason they kept Blache was b/c he was a Grilliams protege and wanted to keep the defensive continuity intact.

Sure as heck doesn't look like it...

My apologies.

That said, I'm still waiting for psp's answer to my "righting the ship" question, he seems to be conviently ignoring that one...

I have the same question! At that point, you have to get some momentum going into the half! Zorn had guts at the beginning of the year, but has no glory to show for it now!

Posted by: redryan400 | December 8, 2008 10:35 AM | Report abuse

psp - It's different but the same. You are correct that the Redskins send the most 6-man rushes and those numbers are accurate...

It's different because it's a different person calling the plays. It was more different earlier (Blatche ran mor base sets), but because the offense hasn't been scoring, Blatche has become more aggressive to compensate for our scheme-less offense...

Sounds good to me. Too bad most of our fanbase and front office aren't that patient.

Posted by: Gfunk | December 8, 2008 11:16 AM | Report abuse

It is hard to be patient after so many years of futility. Be honest even when we went to the palyoffs the last two times you knew deep down we werent ready for it. I dont know what the future holds. I dont know what moves are correct and which aren't all i know is that we have an owner who desperately wants to win, a fan base who sells their tickets to rabid opposing teams fans, and our line play is horrid. That is what i know.

I mean our home record is ridiculous, losses to St Louis, the G-Men, Pittsburg and Dallas.

4 losses at home?

I live in KC, i went to a Skins game 2 years ago. Arrowhead which seat 20K less that our stadum is louder. We ahve no hoem field advantage. It saddens me.

RE Samuels,

It does not matter if he is in there! He couldn't block Suggs, couldn't block Tuck, couldn't block Ware, and couldn't block that fella from Pittsburgh. Good run blocker...horrific pass blocker. Maybe Smithers can redo his contract and extend his contract.
