The State of Redskins Nation

Woah everbody, don't push the panic button yet. Let's step back and take a true inventory of the team and the upcoming season:

1) The Portis injury is not devastating. He banged up and will miss the remained of the preseason. His is a 4 - 6 week deal, and if he's smart, he'll sit out the first game if he's not 100%.
2) Brunell is still out money maker. As he goes, we go. Let's stop trying to get Jason elevated, he's not gonna take us to a Super Bowl this year.
3) Our defense is awesome. Enough said.
4) This is our year to make "the run". We have a team capable of winning 11 or 12 games. Brunell just needs to not have ints. We won't win pretty, but we'll win.

This is the year to make a run but the one fatal flaw with this team is depth. They dont have much on either side of the ball. Hopefully they can stay fairly injury free and the depth wont be an issue but if they cant well I dont want to think about that.

Re: The State of Redskins Nation

I'm really not that concerned about Portis.

Betts is more than capable of starting some games for us.

I still expect CP will be ready to go week 1.

Re: The State of Redskins Nation

I think he'll be ready, but I keep reading all these articles talking about how it's going to be a nagging injury and how other teams are going to key on it and blitz more causing him to use it.

It has the potential to be a nagging injury, but it's still too early to tell how it may effect him the rest of the season.

Re: The State of Redskins Nation

Right. I know that there are no guarantees one way or another, but damn if it doesn't bother me.

Re: The State of Redskins Nation

I'm still pretty positive about this season. I'll agree with Portis though, I don't mind less preseason games if it means keeping the starters happy....that or either just don't play any starters during the entire preseason, so as to develop depth.

Re: The State of Redskins Nation

I think people are reading too much into our dept due to the first preseason game. Yes the 2nd O line looked bad as a unit but they will not be on the field as a unti but one or two here and there to play with the first unit. With the second unit if you have two of the five missing their blocking assignments then the whole unit will look bad. Yes Cinny did look better but like as most other teams they have had at least an extra week of training camp over the skins. We have a great coaching staff and they will have them ready to play come the 11th. Just remember they are trying out alot of new guy most of which won't make the team but we have enough to choose from to find the quality back ups.

I think this is why we have guys that play several positions- so we can put in the best guy, not that back up for that position.

Gibbs teams are notorious for bad pre-seasons then having good seasons.

Re: The State of Redskins Nation

I had the very same injury as Portis a few years ago. My shoulder popped out and then back into place. It was very painful. However, after about a week I was playing golf. I am not worried about the injury affecting him much once it has healed.

Re: The State of Redskins Nation

You have to think that Portis will get the best care money can buy, which is better than probably 99% of us talking on this site. Most of us that remember Emmitt Smith playing for the Cowboys in the mid to early nineties, probably remember him playing thru a lot of these type of injuries. Portis has a month to heal, not just 2 weeks. AND he is in better physical shape than 99% of the American population. What would take 6 weeks for one of us may only take 3 for him.

Re: The State of Redskins Nation

I'm good. If you look at the first 3 games, we don't really need Portis. You have a game thats a win vs. Minnesota with or without him. A game that we likely won't win at Dallas Week 2 even with him. (Although theres a much greater chance with him) And a game at Houston in Week 3 that shouldn't be a loss even with Betts playing. That brings us to Week 4 before we need him when games are decided.

I've read a report that says he's got the same injury as Cedric Benson has up here. That's a 3-4 Week injury. I would put him as questionable for Week 1, and week to week after that, fully expecting him to be on the field with no repercussion at Dallas in Week 2.

Re: The State of Redskins Nation

I agree, we really do not need portis the first couple of games, I say we play him limited the first couple games so he is good to go for the regular season.
