Washington a Game-Time Decision

An update on other injuries, from Jason Reid:

Strong-side linebacker Marcus Washington, hampered by recurring hamstring problems the past two seasons, will be a game-time decision, Zorn said. Washington has missed two games, including last week's victory over Philadelphia.

Defensive tackle Cornelius Griffin (shoulder) will be re-evaluated today but is expected to play.

Cornerback Shawn Springs, who sat out last week because of a calf injury, will be active.

Safety Reed Doughty (back) has been ruled out, Zorn said.

Going back to TCCL's, I think we left something out:

81 TCCL's - Santana Moss' Attitude. Dude is a non-factor in Sunday's game, and still plays his guts out (to steal an old phrase from JG), and refuses to whine about not getting the ball. Totally stand up player. Tell your kids he should be one of their role models.

2) Serious question - should we tank the rest of the season in hopes of getting a higher % chance of the #1 overall pick and drafting Knowshon Rockwell Moreno? If he doesn't come out this year, we can put it off a year and try next year. If he doesn't come out next year, we'll do it again for his senior year. If we go winless from here on out for the next three years, we'll have the highest % chance of getting him. What do yall think?

Posted by: TheTruth11 | October 10, 2008 2:07 PM

I think that if the Skins go for another RB anytime soon, they should go for #2 Javon Ringer (Michigan State) rather than #32 Knowshon Moreno (Georgia).

Skinz--

Gotcha. He did indeed play his guts out. Also, just running out patterns when doubled or tripled contributes mightilly, since it helps open the field for other receivers. SOME receievers see that as an opportunity to call a press conference and claim how great they are, right TO?

If Malcolm Kelly EVER gets healthy, I'm anxious to see if the pre-draft "experts" who called him one of the best blocing WRs in college were right.

I think that skill may be underappreciated among most fans.

Good point about Kelly. If you can get those WR blocking out in space and on the edges it really elevates your run game for edge runs and second level stuff. Kelly's big enough to put some dudes in the hurt locker if he ever gets healthy.

Portis is clearly the better back right now. The problem is that he is significantly older than AP and Portis is coming up on the typical time frame where running backs start to lose to steam quickly... right around 7 years. Let's hope he can keep it up for much longer. no guarantees in this league tho.

As for AP, all he's done is have a great first 10 games in his rookie year. He did nothing the final 6 games last year.

In his USFL career, Walker had 5,562 yards rushing in 1,143 carries, averaging 4.87 yards per carry, during his three seasons with the Generals. In 1983, he rushed for 1,812 yards in 18 games.

It's really an apple and oranges comparison. All of the players on that list were position players. The yardage for career KR/PRs, but especially KRs, is misleading because they run 15-20 yds before they meet a defender.

people saying Portis won't make the hall are wrong. Dude isn't just some statistic player, ANYBODY that knows football can see everything he brings to the game other than rushing yards. It's ridiculous.

And now he's a player-coach after last week's 4th and 3 call!

dealer the only thing more annoying that people who constantly bring up UGA in an attempt to bother me (thus making me respond and causing ME to look like the perpetrator which we all know is FALSE) is people that bring up politics!!

"...And AP STILL had more yards rushing than
CP did in 16 games."

I wasn't suggesting that CP had a better year than AP. AP was all-world through the first 10 games but then that's it. my suggestion is that CP's 6+ years stack up much better than AP's 1.25. but the problem is that CP is getting up there in age.

Why are we talking about UGA? i don't get it. TheTruth: are you Knowshon's mama or something? enough, already. save it for draft day and the offseason.

Yes truth you certainly should ignore anyone who does not agree with you as they obviously have no knowledge. What a joke. Count me among them. Walker is not hall worthy. Time in the USFL does not count as except for few big name skill position players the league wa mostly second rate. If he played those years in the NFL against real competition he gt maybe a third of that. He built a big rep at Georgia and New Jersey that never reall materialized in the NFL. unforunately for him longevity and real stats are what does it, and his numbers just don't do it. And as for Brian Mitchell, sorry he doesn't get in either, but he is closer than Walker. Pure kick returners should get in as often as kickers and punters. Not to often. He is the best all time though, so he gets more consideration than a running back that is 34th in yards from scrimmage.
