Tony McGee On Redskins at 4-9

Hello Everyone!

Well, once again this was a ridiculous game to lose. That is really just the theme of the season at this point. It was a game that was completely dominated by the Washington Redskins, and they still lost. If the defense and rushing game had played like this when Brunell was the Quarterback, the Redskins would be in the playoffs right now. I think they should have kept him in, which I said back then and I do now. You canít make roster changes because of pressure from the fans.

I donít think Campbell is necessarily playing poorly, he is making the type of mistakes that you would expect a rookie to make. However, if they were serious about making the
playoffs they should have stuck with Brunell. I said it at the time and I stick by that.

As far as the Ladell Betts re-signing, it was a good re-singing by the Redskins and a guy who should bring a lot to the table next year. Do I think he was crazy to resign with the Redskins and not test the market? I do not. Honestly, I think if Clinton Portis was running behind these holes, he would have broke a few of them in that Eagles game for another 50 yards and a TD. I donít think that Betts could have gotten a lot more in the free agent waters, but Iím glad the Redskins kept I am also not completely sold on Portis staying in Washington. The Redskins may see an opportunity with Ladell Betts to try to shop Portis and see if there is a good market for him where they can sure up some other areas of the team.

Looking at the rest of the season, Joe Gibbs just needs to tell the guys that they are going to get cut if they donít play their hearts out and he must mean it. This team needs some sort of re-charge and guys need to know that if they arenít playing hard they will be gone for the team. Period, cut and dry.


Thanks again guys. Itís been a rough yearÖ.


Tony.

Interesting observation by Tony

Re: Tony McGee On Redskins at 4-9

I have to disagree with Tony on Brunell being in the game would have given us a better shot at being in the playoffs. No, Brunell doesn't throw those ints., but he damn sure doesn't rally in the second half and throw a strike to Randel El for a TD, or scrambles for a few key first downs.

Against Tampa Bay Jason played a good game, and they beat Carolina.
The only game I can honestly question is the game that we lost against Atlanta.

Re: Tony McGee On Redskins at 4-9

I might add, I think people are running a little too far with the Ladell Betts signing.

I love Betts to death, but come next year the wear and tear of sixteen game season is a different animal. And I'm just not sold on putting all of our eggs in basket like that.

I agree. It's funny because on the one hand you've got people complaining about lack of depth on the team but on the other hand we make a move to ensure we have two starting caliber running backs on our team and now people are saying there's no room for the two of them. Why can't we just be happy that we have Portis AND Betts?

Interesting take on Portis.

As for Brunell, he does have a point if the D was playing well and the running game was going this good earlier in the year who knows what could have happened. But I do think it's time to see what JC can do and to start getting him ready for the long haul.

Re: Tony McGee On Redskins at 4-9

Was starting Campbell the cause of the Defense and running game resurgence. Maybe the team responded positively to Campbell getting the start. If Brunell had stayed in maybe the team wouldn't have felt the inclination to step up and perform.

I agree, and mentioned this in a previous thread. Its possible that we would be in the playoff hunt if we would have kept Brunell in there a little longer. Our running game, which had been struggling, is clicking. Our pass protection is better.

I agree w/ the benching and do think its time though to see what JC can do. We aren't a superbowl caliber team w/ either qb so it's JC's time right now.

Knowing how much Gibbs loves Portis and how he thinks of him as a core redskin, i have to disagree that the redskins will shop him. Don't see it.

The running game clicking may indirectly have to do with Campbell's willingness and ability to throw the long ball. With Brunell you could pretty much take that out of the equation and stack the box with 8. So, I'm not sold on that either.

Yeah, I always thought that we could have collected a few more wins if we were patient with Brunell in there and allowed the rest of the team to correct itself. But at some point, simply squeezing in as a wild card in a ridiculously weak conference so you can get crushed by a good team on the road in January has to come second to getting your young gun some expierence.

Would have been nice to go to 9-7, grab the 6 seed and gotten to play Dallas in the WC round, but as long as we do well next year due to this move, I'm happy.

Re: Tony McGee On Redskins at 4-9

Wouldn't the Redskins incur a large cap hit if they traded Portis? I think that if the you trade a player under contract the signing bonus accerlerates similar to when you cut him - am I right on this?

Re: Tony McGee On Redskins at 4-9

Our record was no better with brunell in...........plus our defense did not play well at all this game, it was our offense that stayed on the field due to Campbell's third down conversions....and the defense lost us the game in the final 5 minutes by not getting off the field. Brunell threw a game losing td pick against the eagles as well. It all goes back to our run D, without a run D, you can't win.

Re: Tony McGee On Redskins at 4-9

I may vomit if we trade Portis...team guy, "true Redskin," plays his heart out, he is a model for what you want the rest of the team to look and play like...if we trade him...well, we'd be back at square 1 with no lessons learned
