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

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...

Taylor indeeds looks like the real deal. He's a playmaker and is always around the ball it seems. If he can keep his head on straight, he should be a force for the Skins defense for years to come.

As for Champ, he WAS (key work WAS) one of the premier corners in the league. But he definitely had an off year last year and was beat often as he laid off his man way too far. But the whole team sucked last year so Champ having an off-year playing with that team and for that group of coaches is not that surprising. I look for him to have a really good year for Denver.

No one ever really seems to be bothered by this as much as me, but... CHAMP DIDN'T LIKE TO TACKLE. Taylor sure as hell seems to enjoy that tiny little part of the game a shit load more.

Taylor is the real deal and that is the bottom line.Im not saying that he wont have problems with some of the recievers he faces but he is a natural and wont take long to fill in the rest.

I also watched the game on the nfl network (thank you again seasonticketholder)and found there bias to be blatent and laughable.At the end of the first Quarter they said they had good drives and I was like wich one the first that ended up as a turnover or all the rest that ended with a punt.
