Heyer will Start against Giants

Heyer to Start; Practice Squad Set (Updated) - Redskins Insider

No word on whether this is a demotion for Jansen, or a one time thing due to injury.

Re: Heyer will Start against Giants

Thank the lord. I love JJ but I'm tired of seeing him get destroyed by less than top flite pass rushers. I think he and Heyer should split a lil time.

Re: Heyer will Start against Giants

I hope its not permanent (atleast for this season). I love the terps and was impressed by what heyer was able to do in a pretty crazy situation last year as an undrafted rookie but I still think jansen is our best option at RT. Jansen has slowed alot since the year he played with 2 broken hands(?) but he is still imo the entrenched starter. Next year i would like to see a very competitive battle for the RT spot with jansen given every opportunity to keep it. Jansen isnt an elite or even great tackle anymore but he is still good and gives us the best chance to win this year imo.

heyer's got that great big body with a large wing span and reports were that he reported to camp in great shape but i think he is still a year away from getting serious starter discussion. I also would like us to draft a tackle next year in the first couple of rounds.

go skins! only 5 days left!!!

go skins!

Re: Heyer will Start against Giants

My guess is that it's a combination of the injury and Jansen's piss-poor play this pre-season. I am very curious to see how Jansen responds--my hope it that it will light a fire under him and he'll step back in. He's got a lot of pride as a player. Now he needs to step up and show why he should start.

Funny how Wise at the Post thought this was disrespectful to Jansen. Does he really think Jansen won the job this season? And it puts the lie to Wise's comments about a lack of open competition in camp. The FO can't win here, I suppose: either they've gone too much with draft picks or they aren't respecting vets. I have an idea: let's just let the Post pick and coach the team. That would solve all our problems, no doubt!

Re: Heyer will Start against Giants

Tyron has more potential than the cut DBs, IMO. Let's see if he can improve over time. With draft picks, a little patience!!!

Good call. Jansen is finished IMO. He did a lot for the franchise, but his time is over.

Re: Heyer will Start against Giants

Bottom line, Jansen had a horrible pre-season. Stevie Wonder could have seen that. I like the fact that coach Zorn has the guts to make the call before we got two or three games into the season, and watch Jansen struggle horribly. He's making this a non-controversy before it get's off the ground. Good call.

Re: Heyer will Start against Giants

Agreed.

I think this is pretty much a combination of Jansen's injury and the fact that he sucked in preseason as well. I'm curious to see if this is Zorn's way of lighting a fire under Jansen's ass, or if this pretty much means it's the end of Jansen's time in Washington.

Re: Heyer will Start against Giants

I mean, at this point what's the point of lighting a fire under Jansen? I don't get that part at all. If anything, it's lighting a fire under Heyer not Jansen. It will encourage Heyer to continue to improve and get even better game after game. Jansen had all the incentive in the world to keep his job and show that he deserved it.

At any rate, whether it's Jansen or Heyer, both are much, much, much better than Todd Wade.

Re: Heyer will Start against Giants

jansen will probably get the start against the saints, i'm sure zorn will say the only reason heyer is starting is so jansen can rest his injury...despite his comments earlier in the week.

I gotta disagree with you here. If Heyer holds it down against the Giants, no way in hell Zorn benches him just because Jansen's foot is better. Truth is this is probably an injury Jansen could, if he had to, play with. And for the entire pre-season you could probably slip a butter knife between the two of them in terms of quality of play.

Re: Heyer will Start against Giants

I dooubt it. Jansen is done. I have said in a previous post that we need to upgrade the right tackle position for the last couple of years. I mean Al Saunders could not get his scheme to really work without protection. I also believe that Samuels need to move to the right tackle position and we need to draft someone to play left tackle for us a la Walter Jones to protect Campbell's blind side. I honestly believe we need to get more athletic on the offensive line. Seattle's GM stated that he always wanted a bid, fast and agile group and we are definitely lacking that. I believe in next years draft we will focus on this offensive line as well as defensive line.

Re: Heyer will Start against Giants

I like Jansen and appreciate his play all these years. But for him to act all surprised about not starting confirms what I've been thinking. The offensive line seems to think they are greater than their play indicates. They seem to be caught up in the idea that they are great. They CAN be , but they have'nt been. It's time to live up to your name.
