Good point, Brown. Let's see, the pass defense is second to last in the league and the strong safety is leading the league in tackles... Hmmm. Now who should be dropping back in pass coverage more often.... Hmmm.

Don't discount that we have played against probably 2 of the top 5 QB's in the league. They pretty much withstood our constant pressure and gashed for a ton of yards. Lesson learned for Has. Now if we apply the same pressure to Bradford and he torches us for 400+ yards then I will be gravely concerned about our defense.

Albert Haynesworth

Well, perhaps one factor we haven't accounted for in assessing the defense's deficiencies is the lack of disrupting play in the center of the defensive line.

Albert Haynesworth

The idea in switching to the 3-4 was that the skins had on the roster certain once powerful, double-team quality linemen who'd 'mask' personnel weaknesses.

The team felt that that one player would make stand outlate game plays like M Williams did over T Williams.

Albert Haynesworth

Sadly, the one player Jim Haslett hoped would create trouble and make plays to free up his front line defenders hasn't been the force he hoped he would be.

He has chosen to be petulant and childish and, for whatever reason, non-existant though on the team.

Albert Haynesworth

And should the defense become a serious Achilles heel, only one person can be played for not contributing in a manner equal to his compensation:

>b>Albert Hayneswort

Yes, it's easy to say the defense's issues are all his fault.

But, in so many ways, they are.

Getting Albert Haynesworth on the same page would quickly resolve much of what ails the redskin defense.

I think the passing defense will get better when we get a free safety. Is Kareem still coming back this week?

For the haters:

"… Hall was good in coverage but his best play might have come in the run game. On a first-and-10 play, Hall read run all the way and sacrificed his body to take out fullback Vonta Leach. Arian Foster tripped over the fallen Leach. …"

RI FF updates!!

A couple quick notes about the FF week in the RI Hamster and Peeps leagues.

First, kudos to those who sat players facing the Redskins. 4-12 sat Matt Schaub (though not Andre Johnson) and the Futa, in a move that cost him the game, sat Arian Foster. Also worth mentioning, the weeks top performers in both leagues sat on the bench, Jahvid Best (40+), Jason Snelling (30+). The triple digit mark has been passed 4 times in the Hamster league, but in the Peeps league, with a somewhat less friendly scoring system, only the Zombie Hord has managed triple digits.

The Hamster league saw a breakout performance by the Raljohn Realskins. The Realskins (1-1) garnered a season high total in the 126-94 win over the Geelong Skins (0-2). The recently acquired Tim Hightower led RalJohn with 23. McNabb and Andre Johnson also hit the 20 point mark, while 3 others went double digits. Schaub led Geelong with 26.

Dealer (2-0) and E Funk All Stars (1-1) had terrific battle. E Funk trailed by 13 going into Sunday night's game, but Peyton went for 24 to put Funk in the lead. It was Frank Gore for Dealer vs the Saints defense for Funk on Monday night that would decide it. Heading into the final 2 minutes, the game was tied. But Gore got 9 points in the last 2 minutes, while the Saints 'd' gave up a bunch of yards and a TD, shedding FF points in the process. Gore, who went for 29, and Dealer came from behind to win, 91-78.

The Moss City Santanimals (0-2) started from a deep hole on Sunday night against the Shanallenskin (1-1), and even Drew Brees couldn't dig them out, with Shanny winning, 92-68

The defending champ F Bombers (2-0) played the runner up Trippin' Billies (1-1), but revenge was not to be had, with a 82-74 final. 24 points from the Steeler defense and 15 from Darren McFadden led F, while the Billies were led by Philip Rivers who posted 24.

The Koolaid Kids (1-1) posted a strong game, with an 81-53 win over Coproliths (1-1). lesean mccoy went for 33 for the Kids. Copros struggles were exemplified by Favre, who finished with -2 on the day.

Triple digits have been hit 4 times in season so far, the Cal Salmon (2-0) is the only team to do it twice. This time, they cruised to a 113-59 win over Butz for Utz (0-2). Aaron Rodgers led the Salmon with 26. desean jax led Butz, who had a staggering 81 points on the bench.

Heading into week 3, the Salmon, F Bombers and Dealer are all 2-0.

So Haslett's plan was to turn a dominant 4-3 DT, that definitely doesn't want to play in a 3-4, into a 3-4 NT, RDE.

Also, turning to solid 4-3 DEs into 3-4 OLBs

and, we're 31st in pass D and our SS is leading in tackles.

Also, we got New Soup who has consistently thrown about 70% of the time and our running game hasn't produced enough yards just a couple'a TDs

cool I got it trying to understand the cool aid logic so I don't get hated on for the truth line portis

Over in the Peeps league, Sunday finished with most games still up in the air. And there was plenty of drama on Monday night, with the outcome of 3 games undecided in the final 2 minutes of football.

South Hill Skulls rolled to 38 point lead over Noone Tampa on Sunday. In a display of mediocrity, Tampa's QB, Flacco, outscored the Skulls QB, Favre, 1 to -2. The Skulls lead came from Tim Hightower 20 points and strong games from Reggie Wayne, Roddy White and Mark Clayton. Still, Frank Gore and Pierre Thomas gave hope to Tampa, even down 38 points. The lead had been whittled down, but with under 2 minutes to go, Skulls led by 11 points. But Gore, who finished with 29, had a long catch, followed by a TD run, and it was a 2 point game. On the following possession, Pierre caught 2 passes, adding 2 more points to tie the game ... and that is where this contest ended, 78-78. Meaning we go to the tie breaker -- only to find out there is none. Tampa moves to 1-0-1 while Skulls is 0-1-1.

The defending champs, Futaleufu Swimmers (1-1) struggled against the Houston Buffaloes (1-1), in part due to leaving Arian Foster on his bench because he was playing the Skins. It cost him. On Monday night, the Futa needed 12 from the Saints kicker. He got 11, the final 76-75. Of note, Jahvid Best and his 44 points sat on the bench for the Buffs.

Future Winners (2-0) obviously thinks the future is now, posting an 81-61 win over He Nate Me (0-2). Aaron Rodgers put up 26, while Antonio Gates added 17 for Future. Peyton (22) was the only double digit scorer for Nate. Future is alone in first place, the only team to win both games.

Fins Eat Skins (1-1) trailed by 20 going into Monday night, needing a huge game from Vernon Davis. Davis had a solid game, but failed to score a TD, resulting in an 83-72 win for 4-12 (1-1), who was led by Andre Johnson's 23. Adrian Peterson had 25 for Fins.

The Jackalopes (1-1) led the Omaha Steers (1-1) by 4 points going into Monday night, hoping to hold down Marques Colston. Colston's catch in the final minute put Omaha over the top for a 69-67 win. desean jackson led Omaha with 21, Jay Cutler led the Jackalopes with 22.

The East Coast Shaft (1-1) was the top scoring team on Sunday, but alas, they only led by 5 over 34332's Zombie Hord, with Drew Brees still to play for the Hord, and Brees came through. The top 2 scoring teams of week met, with Hord (1-1) getting a 104-93 win. The Shaft had 6 spots deliver 9 or more, led by 18 from the Charger defense. The Hord got 32 from mccoy, 24 from the Steeler defense and became the only team in the Peeps league to post a triple digit score so far this season.

Future is alone in first place, the only team to win both games, with Tampa alone in second at 1-0-1. 8 of the 12 teams are 1-1.

I agree. It seemed that AH is/was gettign with the program. But Coach wants to keep yanking on his choke collar to show he's the boss. He knows AH is better suited as a 3-4 DE but when he gave him extended playing time in final pre-season game it was primarily at NT, a position AH doesn't want to play and frankly for which he is not ideally suited. Same thing with game one. Coach is saying: you'll play where I say you'll play even though the DC has been encouraging AH with the carrot of playing DE. Albert gets nicked at practice, finishes the week practicing (teammates think he's playing) but is then deactivated. Coach is trying marginalizing the guy to the team's detriment. What's the point of further humiliation? Now a few words from the emotional crowd in 5, 4, 3...

Oh yeah and Kareem Moore is automatically good despite very little playing experience.

He is a late round cerrato pick. He has potential sure, but the assumption that he is any type if long or short term answer is a big assumption.

Wilbon: "He lived like a thug and had it coming."
Wise: "Put my radio show out of its misery already."
Jenkins: "Dan Snyder is the devil."

4th, feeling or thinking something is different than saying it. If you are going to say something that could be misinterpreted or taken out of context, you better be damn careful on how you choose your words.


It has nothing to do with "hating". I got nothing but respect for the guy, but he does appears to go on these "chest out" rants that either creates or adds to controversy, or makes himself look like a total jackass.

I knew it wouldn't be long. Why must you be so emotional? How am I up AH's butt because I think the team is better with him on the field than on the sidelines given the talent level of the people playing ahead of him. And I'm not the only one who holds this opinion.
And your "44 teams have one SBs without [fill in the blank]" is so weak. There are a ton of great players in the NFL who haven't won SBs so what's your point? 44 teams have won a SB and an additional number have been to the SB w/o Vince Jackson but that didn't stop you from daily wishing he was on the team.

Not sure about the Hanesworth jibber-jabber. The guy can't play. He played in the first game and didn't do anything but mimic a blocking sled.

He doesn't have "it" anymore and frankly, his actions demonstrate that he couldn't give a crap.

Consider him 'retired' until some other team's top-tier DT goes down for the year.

Personally, I say trade him to the Rams for a 5th so he can start Sunday and then run right at him.

Running game questions solved.

Outside of that, torture the S.O.B. for as long as we can and make him a pariah, forever damaging what little remaining consensus that AH is as dominant a D-linemen as there is in football.
