TE's are not meant to run end arounds, I think it was a pretty bad call on Zorn.

Re: Who is available to replace Kelly?

I thought he looked like he was going to throw it, and that's why he wasn't running at full speed.

Re: Who is available to replace Kelly?

I know that, but still you have to figure any TEs running and end around option pass, are going to be a lot slower than any WR. Doesnt seem to be an effective play to me. If I were a DB, I see a TE running an end around, I will let my LBs get to him because chances are he is not that quick to break a hole and I will stick on my WR because it just seems fishy.

Re: Who is available to replace Kelly?

Well be prepared to see it again cause last week Zorn said he probably would run it again. He stated it was not Davis's fault for the no yards. He said the Browns D picked the best play to use against that play and when Davis came around the end the Browns were waiting for him. He stated it was just a good play decision on the Browns part. Supposedly they used some sort of blitz package and both ends sealed of the ends causing Davis to try and force it outside further then the end of the line.

We better run this if we're up by two or three TDs. Otherwise I would say bad idea.

We could bring Devin (who played with JC in college at Auburn) up from the practice squad and sign McMullen and put him on practice squad to get healthy.
Im almost certain that McMullen is too damn old to be on the practice squad...after you've been in the league for x amount of years, you are no longer eligable for the practice squad.

It will probably go for 50 - 60 yards against the Lions. Any Lions' fans on the board???

Ok, thank you. I already got the smack down by Smootsmack;

"McMullen isn't eligible for the practice squad, so let's forget that idea"

No need for people to waste their time saying the same thing. I agree with you all ...had a brain fart sorry. Have a nice day....

Re: Who is available to replace Kelly?

Zorn said today that the team is going to rest Kelly until after the bye week then push it hard and see how it responds. If it flares up he will then go on IR.
Saw the video on redskins.com, not sure how to link to it.

Re: Who is available to replace Kelly?

practice squad is for players before they have two accrued seasons... i think you get a season counted if you're on the 53 man roster (active or inactive) for like, 8 games in a single year...

I saw it too. Sounds like a good plan.

Re: Who is available to replace Kelly?

sign a safety? what are you high? we already have 4. how is adding a 5th safety going to help us at all? going with only 4 receivers is risky. what happens if one of them gets banged up and becomes injured? what do we do then? just roll with 3?

Bess, Davone WR 5'10" 195 Hawaii
Blythe, Todd WR 6'5" 214 Iowa State
Bowman, Adarius WR 6'4" 220 Oklahoma State
Bradford, Mark WR 6'1" 211 Stanford
Breazell, Brandon WR 6'0" 168 UCLA
Brown, Travis WR 6'2" 192 New Mexico
Bryant, Dorien WR 5'10" 169 Purdue
Carter, Patrick WR 6'3" 199 Louisville
Fagg, De'Cody WR 6'1" 211 Florida State
Grice-Mullen, Ryan WR 5'11" 183 Hawaii
Hall, D.J. WR 6'2" 190 Alabama
Harvey, Jeron WR 6'5" 215 Houston
Jenkins, Darnell WR 5'10" 190 Miami
Jones, Jason WR 6'1" 180 Arkansas-Pine Bluff
Jones, Nate WR 6'1" 195 Texas
McBride, Shaheer WR 6'2" 198 Delaware State
Paysinger, Brian WR 6'2" 206 Oregon
Pittman, Billy WR 6'1" 200 Texas
Purify, Maurice WR 6'3" 224 Nebraska
Reece, Marcel WR 6'0" 231 Washington
Reynaud, Darius WR 5'9" 201 West Virginia
Rivers, Jason WR 6'2" 194 Hawaii
Russo, Anthony WR 5'11" 185 Washington
Sam, Lorne WR 6'3" 220 Texas-El Paso
Smith, Taj WR 6'1" 187 Syracuse
Swan, Luke WR 6'0" 195 Wisconsin
West, Joe WR 6'1" 213 Texas-El Paso
Williams, Edward WR 6'4" 206 Lane (TN)

They were on the bottom of the draft class as far as not being drafted. Perhaps some got picked up and it was not changed but some have height that I think would be interesting to explore.

Re: Who is available to replace Kelly?

I'm not saying anything about throwing them into the fire....I'm talking about putting someone on our practice squad if we move one up from practice squad. Maybe someone who can learn the offense for a half a yr and who knows what could happen next yr.
