I was thinking about Haynesworth, but since he has never played a full 16 game season, I think you can't count him as a can't lose guy.

As long as none of our guys are on the Madden cover we're OK.

Re: One player the Skins cannot afford to lose to injury in '09

I go with Portis. I dont think the Skins have any other threats on offense and the backup RBs dont scare anybody.

I will be shocked if Samuels can get thru the season injury free.

Re: One player the Skins cannot afford to lose to injury in '09

I agree that Samuels would be a big loss, but how is no one saying Santana Moss?

Without Moss, what do we have as a receiving threat? Randel El?? Thomas?? Kelly?? I guess Thomas would fill that role? Yikes!

Re: One player the Skins cannot afford to lose to injury in '09

The Redskins best weapon is Clinton Portis. Without him, the Skins are a less than average team. Samuels, Moss, Campbell, Fletcher, Landry and Haynesworth are very important but Portis is the face of the Redskins.

Re: One player the Skins cannot afford to lose to injury in '09

I don't really think there's much of an argument, it's got to be Chris Samuels. We don't even know if there is a guy who can play RT on the Skins, much less LT.

I would have to say 2nd is London Fletcher, but HB Blades is a capable backup. I'm not saying they don't drop off A LOT with Fletcher gone, but this team is better prepared to deal with losing Fletcher than Samuels.

Re: One player the Skins cannot afford to lose to injury in '09

Samuels is the stand out in this area. we saw what happened when he was hurt last year. They've taken steps to improve depth, but we don't know how Bridges, Williams & Heyer will pan out even at RT, much less LT.

Guess you missed my post, the one that started the thread.

Re: One player the Skins cannot afford to lose to injury in '09

Last year, it was easy: Samuels.

This year, I want to say Haynesworth, but truth is, he's probably not the number one guy. The number one guy almost has to be an offensive player.

So with that in mind, I think it's a toss up between Campbell, Portis, Samuels, and Dockery. We can't lose any of them. If I had to pick one, I'd go with Dock.

Re: One player the Skins cannot afford to lose to injury in '09

I'm not hating on Blades but Fletcher to me would be a pretty big loss. What gets overlooked is how he is almost like a coach out there getting everyone where they need to be and in the right calls.

Losing Portis would suck but I don't think it would spell doom for the season, Betts has proven he can step in and carry the load full time.

Re: One player the Skins cannot afford to lose to injury in '09

Losing Campbell would ironically really set things up for fan unrest, assuming Collins remains #2 this year. Will be something to watch in camp to see if Colt can unseat him as backup.

If Collins were to come in & start to show his age & decline, fans will be calling for Colt. Obvious reasons aside, given the chain reaction it would create, losing Campbell would be huge. I still say Samuels though.

Re: One player the Skins cannot afford to lose to injury in '09

I wouldnt say AH because we didnt have him last yr.
I would go with Fletcher as the defense goes but now having AH would make it easier on a young MLB by keeping him clean of blockers.but as a leader of the D it would be a loss in that regard.
IF CP went down week 1 we would be in big trouble.
