Our trenches - the core of a football team - were horrific.

As bad as it was last night. Lets don't loss sight that it is still pre-season....the real bullets aren't flying yet.

Yes, it was a horrific showing last night in all phases, but that could very well serve as a wake up call to this football team and coaching staff. We have a small window of time to make corrections and improve before the Giants opener, lets hope the team and staff make the very most of this time.

True but I was talking about last year only.

As the great Vince Lombardi said:

It's not whether you get knocked down, it's whether you get up.

Let's see how the Redskins get back up from this. Last year we got trounced by New England and still went on to have a playoff season, so all is not lost.

And if I said that, you'd be correct. What I said is we dominated them as in outplayed them in all facets of the game. We can all agree, and the players have echoed this, that we were thoroughly outplaying them Week 3 until we throttled down and they caught us. I know we lost the game even though we outplayed them.

Mort on ESPN just said that it's a hyper-extended knee but he should be ready to go week 1. They're still going to do a MRI as a precaution.

Man, if that is the case thats GREAT news! Talk about dodging a bullet, that knee was in a really bad position.

But the man hasn't missed a game in some what 130 games or something..? I know thats luck, but great luck to have in this league. On any given snap it could be your last.

I will be looking forward to the presser today, whenever that is?

I've been watching ESPN all morning and didn't hear that. That's music to my ears though. I've hyperextended my knee before, and I know that initially it feels like your leg got blown up. A little swelling, a little limping, but after a week or two you're good to go. Thank goodness. Taylor hasn't missed a game since '99. If he didn't make it out of the preseason for us I would be just sick.

Saw it on ESPN News a little while ago. I had a mild hyper once in HS too and I was able to play the next week no problem.

Mort is usually pretty good too. I'll take his word over, say, Sal Paolantonio. I really, really hope it's just a hyperextension. Remember two years ago when Roethlisberger hyperextended his knee? It looked season ending for sure on tape, and he was fine after a week or two.

Check out the NFL section on ESPN, Mort has an injury update video there.

Re: Status of Jason Taylor's knee (updated: hyperextended knee)

Jim Zorn has confirmed that an MRI Sunday showed that Jason Taylor suffered only a sprained knee Saturday night in Charlotte.

Jason Reid reports that Taylor, whose knee was hit in a pileup in the second quarter of the Redskins' 47-3 loss, will be out 10 days to two weeks and, Zorn said, the team will proceed cautiously with him. That means that whether he is ready for the opener isn't certain yet. Zorn would prefer, obviously, to have him for the last 15 games rather than the opener.

10 days takes us up to 9/4 so I guess it will just depend on how fast he heals up.
