Yes, this was a fun game. I was very impressed with the first line JC & Co. looked good and in control, no confusion. The first line D that started also looked OK. And no injuries, mission accomplished!

A few notable surprises Colt looked nice for the first time seeing him a think he only had one incompletion (Rating 157 or so?). Mason and Rock both played well. Brooks had a solid performance, for his first outing. Horton was solid, a couple sacks and was flying around out there, could be something to him?

Overall I really enjoyed the game, really strong for a HOF game and we treat the new Coach to his first win and some tape to look at!

Bottom line good game we got a taste of our revised offense, and no one got injured! Great night of Redskin football.

Re: Skins vs. Colts tonight, what are your thoughts about our first pre-season game of 2008

I thought we looked pretty good for our first preseason game. But I can't understand why we have our LB's lined up so far off of the ball. I mean there is just such a big gap and that's really the reason why they gained so many yards on us. Colt and Campbell looked good. Horton too, and the starting O-Line. That was a fun game to watch and I can't wait for Buffalo.

ALL THE WAY!

Hail To The Redskins!

Overall.. I was so very proud to be a Skins’ fan this weekend. I mean WOW! What a great weekend for the Skins!
As a Doughty appologist I just wanted tore post this to prevent the whole fanbase from jumping back on the Doughty sucks bandwagon, not that they ever got off lol.

ROFL I r find films less then 3. <3

NFL Video Galleries - Jim Sorgi Highlights

1st Play: Campbell was assigned to cover Clark. Doughty got in on the tackle

2nd Play: Doughty lays the wood but the Reciever still makes the catch. Doughty appologist are sad and happy at the same time. Actually I wish we could get an end zone view of this play because I think that Sorgi might have thown it to an area the LB's were suppose to be covering. Of course I'm not sure so I'll just stick with my original statement for now.

3rd Play: Quick Flat route by Clark. I didn't really see where Doughty lined up in the highlight but if I remember right he was about 10 yards back. and he still made the tackle.

4th Play: Rob Jackson gets a sack

5th Play: Robinson is being covered by Sinclair. Doughty is playing a deep zone so Sinclair is lucky that Doughty helped him out after Sinclair bit on play action.

6th Play: Ok, this the Doughty "wiff" play. Doughty had decent coverage but overpursued. Not really much to explain here.

And thats the last play. Anyway as we can see Doughty didn't do nearly as bad as people think. If anything I'd be worried about the play of the linebackers and I'm pretty sure the coaches are going to get on the linebackers about the first drive on Tuesday.

Overall: Yay!

The best part is Jay-Z is unbeaten as an NFL Head Coach.

23-0 in 2008?

Ok, I'll calm down eventually.

Re: Skins vs. Colts tonight, what are your thoughts about our first pre-season game of 2008

if sean was in there instead of doughty though, we would have seen 6 tackles for losses and a forced fumble :P

we're not used to seeing average safeties on the field. and his lack of natural speed is going to ensure he'll never be amazing, but he can still be a decent player.

Re: Skins vs. Colts tonight, what are your thoughts about our first pre-season game of 2008

My fiancee was impressed with Jason...Jason Taylor that is.

I step into the kitchen to grab a beer, I return and I hear

"Why didn't you tell me Jason Taylor was on the Redskins?"

"Um...I didn't think you cared"

"I mean that's great he's on the Redskins now"

"Yeah, we'll see. I have high hopes with him and Carter bookending (is that a word?) the defensive line. The knock on Taylor is how many years of football does he have left."

(I say all this as I'm trying to figure out why I'm having this discussion with someone who admittedly couldn't care less about football)

"Oh my God! He's so hot. Wow. I mean, he's smoking. He's really really hot. Jason Taylor, wow he's really really hot"

and there you go

Exactly, he'll be fine with LaRon there next to him

Springs looked solid as always Sunday, by the way

Re: Skins vs. Colts tonight, what are your thoughts about our first pre-season game of 2008

The good:

1 JC looked decisive and accurate.

2 limited penalties

3 no injuries

4 organized. Lack of confusion

5 younger talent is looking much better than in years past

6 colt brennan looked good


Concerns

1 our o line starters looked vulnerable at times to their backup pass rush

2 muffing punts

3 todd collins may be an overpaid system backup qb. Maybe not, as its just training camp, but I was saying all last year there's probably a reason a guy plays for ten years and never starts. Some of you guys were ready to trade campbell for a sixth round pick.

4 the eerie fear of the spurrier era possibly repeating itself. We looked really good in preseason then, as well.

Doughty was fine last night, I actually focused on him quite a bit and he was always in the right spots and he hustles. That hit he had was pretty nice too. Nothing to see here, move along.

Besides the good outings of a number of players, it looks like the players REALLY like playing for Zorn. Maybe i'm jumping to conclusions, but it looks like they want to have some fun this year. Anyone else get that feeling?

You are always going to get player-speak when they talk about their coach, but it actually looks like they like Zorn and his relaxed attitude. This year could be a special year if we can get some wins early.

I can't find a name but there was a player out there on defense in the fourth quarter with the number 46. I don't know if anyone else did, but I freaked out and ran to my nearest computer to check and see if we still had Betts! lol.

You have my sympathies.....

Her "Oh, that white jersey looks awesome *mumble-mumble-mumble*..."

Me "Jason Taylor? yeah, if they play the right scheme with him and Carter we'll have a great defensive season and....."

Her "I want a 55 jersey!"

Me " Sweetie, you have Washington's jersey, you don't need..."

Her "He looks even better than he did on Dancing with the Starts! Damn, he's hot!"

Me "You know that you're not just thinking that, right? I can hear you."

Her "Will be be in a three-point stance much this season? <salivating>"

Me "*mumble-mumble-mumble*"

Re: Skins vs. Colts tonight, what are your thoughts about our first pre-season game of 2008

Liked how the offense moved the ball. Liked how Mason played and could fight for the 3rd RB spot (not that I don't like Cartwright). Liked how calm and collected Brennan seemed to be.

Would like to see the next 2 games, but if we can assume play from last night, I'm not too concerned about depth for this ball club. Seems that we do have several kids ready to try and step up for spots on this team.

Oh, and my wife was in the bathroom getting ready for bed during the 2nd Half Jason Taylor interview. She came out after it was done and asked if it was him. I said yes, and then had to rewind to the beginning of the interview so she could watch it...I just laughed then hit Live TV during the next commercial break.
