This post makes little sense. Suppose we patched problems through free agency as opposed to building through the draft. What do Dline's size, the dback's height, the WR's "it" factor, and JC's abilities have to do with building through the draft?

I have faith in Zorn to make the right choices when it comes to QB play... that's all I'm saying.

Re: Redskins vs. Jaguars Thread

I have similar feelings with many here...Tryon was a wasted pick!!!! Dude doesn't even give glimpses of good. The game is flashing by him.

I though that Fincher brought some good wood and looked solid!!! Possibly be a good back up or the starter after a couple of games. He was everywhere while the Jax starters were in.

I won't get all caught up into the preseason like I was once before when Spurrior was in town and we ripped some team in Japan...It is glorified practice!

Lets see with all the starters...BUT I am Worried!!!

I think we are all sweating a bit skinny. Even the most optomistic poster on this site has to admit....they feel a little bit of sinking in their stomachs at the sight of the offense yesterday. All we can do is cross our fingers, yell at cerrato, crucify dan snyder, and pray...pray to reverend gonna change

Re: Redskins vs. Jaguars Thread

I was super impressed with Fincher. He's the one person who actually looked like they were trying to make the team.

One positive is that the run defense looked pretty good in general.

Re: Redskins vs. Jaguars Thread

k, as Zorn said after the game, the "Starters" - minus CP, Ladell, Moss, and Jansen - played 7 plays. it is what it is. Cooley caught maybe 2 passes in preseason. I think, and I could be wrong obviously, that Zorn hid alot of what he hopes to do with the first string. You certainly saw more rollouts and shotgun formations with Colt. I hope that does not mean JC can't do those things yet.

Re: Redskins vs. Jaguars Thread

A couple of thoughts about the game:

I'm not too worried about the offense last night. Cooley dropped a ball which he should have caught (he doesn't drop many). Thomas probably should have caught that ball passed to him even though JC was a little late. Of course, everyone is a little concerned but let's wait to judge.

Fincher played his a** off last night.

Wasn't J. Tryon the one talking a bunch of smack about taking a starting position from someone? He didn't look too good out there.

Whoever is returning kicks better not see a real game this year (i know he won't).

Where was Malcolm Kelly?

John Madden has a man crush on Colt Brennan.

Thank god it's the regular season now!!

safety play was better today, but i didn't get why when we had JAX at 3rd and 20+, we'd give everyone a 15 yard cushion... i understand not wanting to get beat deep, but that's a lot of field position that added up on those underneath throws, and we got burnt some anyways.

the prevent is the worst thing i've ever seen...

I second your thoughts on Tryon. I really think I could play as well as him; sucks we wasted a good pick on him too.

It sure will be nice to see Landry out there again. Doughty (last night) could have laid a guy out and put him in the stands, but he chose not to. ST would have knocked him out.

Kelly was held out after having swelling in his knee. Zorn said they've got to get a "plan" for him. Lavar said on comcast after the game that he'd never heard a coach say that at a presser and he joked that Malcom Kelly shouldn't look for a house.

I wonder if Zorn is already thinking IR for Kelly, maybe his knee needs more than the surgery he had on it this month.
