Thrash injured

Haven't seen anyone post this, but Thrash got a fracture on Saturday. They say he may be able to practice with a splint, but anyone seriously see him playing next week?

Likely Jacobs starts and Farris moves up to #3. :frusty:

Re: Thrash injured

I believe you are mistaken. Cooley is WR2, and Sellers WR3.

Thrash's only contribution is to stand on the field near the sideline and watch the passes Brunell throws away sail past his head.

Seriously, Thrash is probably the most useless guy on the field. At least guys like Farris and Jacobs have something to play for.

????????????? What are you smokin?

In the last Seattle game 9/23/05 earlier this year, Thrash had 10 receptions for 165 yards and 2 TD's. Thrash in this one game had more production than Farris and Jacobs combined for their entire careers. Plus Thrash is one of our best Special Teams player. Why are you putting down Thrash?

Re: Thrash injured

Re: Thrash injured

Portis, Sellers, and Royal are basically the third, fourth, and fifth wide receivers behind Moss and Cooley.

I mean really, they might as well line up in 3 TE formations all the time. Those guys have a better chance at getting open and catching a pass than Thrash and Jacobs.

Was David Patten placed on IR, or is there a chance he'll be able to play at some point?

When this season is over, expect Jacobs to be out of the NFL, and Thrash relegated to special teams only. He's simply not a receiving threat in the NFL.

Re: Thrash injured

Cooley has fumbled the ball more than a few times at very critical moments this year. I like Cooley alot, but he needs to hang on to the ball.

That's because he's usually bowling over 5 or 6 defenders on his way to trampling for another 5 yards. He covers by the book when he catches, lowers his head, and rolls. You don't see him one-arming it.

His problem is that he doesn't go down easy enough. And if that's your biggest problem, I can deal with it!

You think fumbles are ok?
I can't deal with fumbles for just five extra yards. What good are those five extra yards if we lose possesion of the ball?
Portis handles tha ball much more than cooley and runs just as tough as cooley and he does not fumble as much.

What the heck are you talking about? The Redskins didn't play a game on 9.23.05. The first Seattle game was 10/2 and Thrash really took it to the house alright, 2 catches for 30 yards.

This guy is terrible. He's was an average 600 yard a year guy at the peak of his power, who's caught ONE TD in three years.

Keep him on special teams, that's fine. But I'd rather have a fired up young guy with nothing to lose who could have a breakout game, than an old, predictable, waste of a roster slot who is guaranteed to do nothing but put the defense to sleep.

Those are pretty harsh words about Thrash, but you're exactly right. He's a special teamer and that's it.

No, I don't think fumbles are OK. But I don't think anybody fights harder after the catch than Cooley does, and I'm saying, watch his technique when he runs with the ball, he tucks that ball and protects it.

Saying Portis doesn't fumble as much is completely irrelevant, since the hits he takes are 9/10 times running into a wall of guys at the line. Catching and running downfield is a completely different type of ball protection game.

Not to mention, half of the balls Cooley catches are total garbage throws from Brunell as the pocket is collapsing, and more often than not, Cooley turns a busted play into a first down.

Re: Thrash injured

Yeah Thrash in all honestly is pointless in being out there. He doesn't do anything. So I could care less if he plays or not. Cause the next guy will be doing the same thing he was. Standing there and watching.

Re: Thrash injured

I would think that Sean Taylor will get more reps on the offense this week. Would like to see him get a couple of throws his way (if he plays). I know that said he wont get suspended but I am a little concerned about it.

Re: Thrash injured

He is a very shifty WR who has picked up some important first downs on a few occasions. Can we say that for Taylor Jacobs or anyone else who plays more than thrash?
