(Except in Denver, where they will be crying at the loss of Portis)
I obviously agree about Champ, But I think both Denver, and ourselves are probably sitting in the same type of scenerio, we are able to plug a CB like Spring's into the CB position, which should give us a minimal drop off if any at Champ's position, and give us a better RB in Portis than we had, same goes for Denver, they will plug in another RB and have very little drop off at Portis's spot, and they get a CB in Champ who is better than any one they had, the difference maker in this deal IMO, is the #2 pick we gave up.

I honestly didn't notice anything that stood out with Bowen. Which I guess is a good sign

Bowen had one big hit. Otherwise he was always a step behind.

I was watching for Bowen, and I thought he looked good at stopping the run; he came in to stuff the hole on at least two occasions that I can remember, and was in on several other tackles as well. As for pass defense, which I've always thought was his weakness, Miami's passing game was so pathetic that they really didn't challenge the secondary much, though they did get a couple over the middle on us, which would presumably be Bowen's area.

Actually, Sportscenter's highlights of the game showed/mocked a play Bowen made against the run in the 1st quarter. While attempting to show how dominant the Skins were against the run, they showed a play where Bowen came up over the top of the pile and flipped all the way over. The quote on Sportscenter was "There goes Matt Bowen, flipping over the pile for no reason at all." Pretty funny.

Yeah, I saw that too. I figured it was a mock "LaVar Leap" in tribute to the injured Arrington. Next time he should just write #56 on his cleats

Champ Bailey is the premier cornerback in the NFL and most of you are bitter that he spurned the Redskins this offseason and because of the things he said about the team. He is the best, hands down.

Anyway, Sean Taylor could very well be the defensive rookie of the year, I was anxious to see how he played against starters and he didn't disappoint. I don't care if it was Miami's sorry excuse for an offense or not, Chambers can play football and he got into him a couple of times, forcing another turnover, this kid is insane!

Taylor's stats speak for themselves, so far. And, as in college, his plays literally CHANGE THE GAME. It's not just what he does, it's when. And that's what makes a serious star in any sport.

But it's early yet, and NFL offenses are for real. He's still got a lot to learn about how to use his talent. But when he does, man! Look out. :headbange

They showed the comment by the Dolphin announcer's, who were looking for any reason whatsoever to defend their team, very, very, biased in game commentary, they seemed paranoid in their defense of the fish.

It was interesting to watch the game with Maimi based announcers on the nfl network. One minute they are claiming then redskins are running their first unit againts 3rd teamers and then on their next breath they state their quarterback Jay is in his 5th season with this offsense...
