2 ex skins on the Giants D equal advantage??

Well comically Shawn Springs (jokingly) and LB coach Dale Lindsey not so jokingly stated Lavar didn't know anything or the Defense when he was here. Don't know if that is good or bad calling him out this week, but funny as hell that the Skins who usually don't joke or call players out, called out Lavar. Saw this on Comcast sports Nite during interviews.

As much as he runs off at the mouth and whines about the skins now, he has it coming... I think our guys should answer him on the field, but I understand and actually like them defending our team to the media, too.

Ouch, check this out

Redskins assistant Saunders 'not happy' with Portis late rest - baltimoresun.com

Quote:
Cornerback Shawn Springs and linebackers coach Dale Lindsey delivered big-time zingers at former Redskins linebacker LaVar Arrington, who now plays for the New York Giants. Asked if Arrington will help the Giants with his knowledge of the Redskins' defense when the teams play Sunday, Springs replied: "I don't think LaVar knew all of our defense when he was here." Lindsey's answer was similar: "He didn't know anything when he was here. What makes you think he'll know something up there?"

I can't quote exactly what LaVar said on "Inside NFL", but he said that he's happy to be a Giant because the owner and the coaches treat him right. He also stated that Redskins have no defensive scheme. Any respect I had of LaVar Arrington completely disappeared after seeing that interview.

Good riddance to LaVar. Really I'm not one to wish ill on former players but he needs to just shut up once and for all and play.

I'm more interested in the main part of the article, the part about Saunders not being happy that CP took himself out of the game

Re: 2 ex skins on the Giants D equal advantage??

yeah, not sure whats up with portis benching himself, but if Gibbs trusts him, its hard not to. I don't think Clinton runs the team or anything, but I also would like the guys making the game plans have some kind of Veto-power on him pulling himself... especially like Saunders says, tied with the clock winding in the fourth quarter...

You always hear how the great players want the ball when the game is on the line, and having him sit out because he was tired is not a good sign when he was rotated in and out of the lineup pretty regularly...

Then again, he may be hurt worse than we think (probably the case) and no one is trying to harp on it and draw attention to it to protect him. Thats my opinion...

I don't think it's necessary to insult Lavar. They should leave that to us. He is capable of making a big play now and then so why take a chance with bulletin board stuff? It's not like his guys (excepting Marcus) have been setting the world on fire this year.

Especially a coach. He needs to follow Gibbs' example. Gibbs's comments on the subject reveal a lot about his character and why he is so successful. "What could I have done differently"? The difference is that Gibbs is concentrated on the now and the game, and Lindsey is still hung up on some old personality conflict from last year. Get your now players to play better, now, Bruce.

Sounds like CP has been able to take himself out since he got here.

Saunders needs to recognize who runs the show here. CP all the way.

Perhaps they're doing it on purpose?

He's going to be fired up as it is. Perhaps by adding some fuel to the fire they're almost daring him to try to make the big play and take himself away from his normal defensive assignments.

Right. Double-reverse psychology.

When I see articles like that, I think, "Boy, two wins and they're up on their high horse blabbing to what the, Baltimore paper?" I have a very nervous feeling about this game and they're definitley pouring fuel on THAT fire. Saunders should deal with that in the meetings and then zip it. Lindsey should just zip it.

Re: 2 ex skins on the Giants D equal advantage??

Good example of the difference between being a HEAD coach and being a GOOD HEAD coach. Gibbs trusts his guys and realizes how to manage them to maximize their production. Saunders and Williams need to learn from that. Seems to me that Williams is soaking it up and Saunders still thinks his sh*t don't stink so he doesn't need to learn anything.
