I'll be on record as saying that losing either Rogers or Hall would be devastating. I have lost faith in Fred Smoot.

Clinton Portis.

He is the only thing that gives our offense respect. We barely get off pass plays now with him as a legitmate threat. If he went down we wouldn't be able to move the ball at all and defenses would have an easier time stopping our attack.

OMG. JoeRedskin, please predict that the entire Redskins team will be badly injured!

In all fairness, I too was enjoying the Iggles temporary demise at that time.

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.
I don't worry so much about Blades moving up to a starting role at MLB, I'd worry more so about someone like Robert Henson for example suddenly having to fill Blades' role and play major backup minutes at all linebacker positions.

Beemn, we're on the same page. My vote is for Rogers with Hall a close 2nd. If we lose one of those guys, our CBs will be hurting.

Nobody else thinking Landry? He's the one guy whose absence would dramatically alter the defensive scheme.

That said, we don't know what we have in Barnes, he could end up beating Smoot for the nickel spot and we may not have much to worry about if he had to spot start a few games.

That's purely speculative, but it could happen.

It's because the D is already pretty good. I looked at the offense because last year it was middle of the pack at best, if it were to get worse, they wouldn't be able to win games (look at the end of last season). I don't think there's anyone on the roster who could fill in for Landry,but he's almost gameplanned out of having a huge impact on the game other than taking away the deep ball which is frustrating for me, but that's the gameplan as of right now.

Hunter Smith is actually a really good choice. If he gets hurt, we're screwed. I mean I know we didn't have him last year like we didn't have AH. But if Haynesworth gets hurt we still have Griff, Golston, and Montgomery.

And look where our punting game was last year without him...does anyone really want to bring back the likes of Frost, Brooks, etc.?

I thought really hard about Rogers. It would suck to lose him for a significant time. But, yeah, I think that Barnes will be taking Smoot's spot by Halloween and we have some depth at corner. We would be hurtin' without Carlos, for sure, but IMO we'd be hurting more without Fletcher's leadership.

I've got to agree with the general consensus and go with Samuels is the one player we can't afford to lose, with London Fletcher just barely trailing him.

Dude I just told everyone in the parking lot (NCAA10 thread) you'd be back in the fall. So please...go away for a few more weeks

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

You guys pretty much already said the players we cannot afford to lose.. Samuels is #1 in my list, he's the cornerstone of the line.. We have seen what happened when he went down; it was difficult for me to watch our O play without him.. I held my breath almost every time for JC when they run the pass plays.. As for Portis, as much it would be devasting to lose him; we already have Betts who is pretty much similar with Portis and he already proved us that he's more than capable of taking over the role excluding the fact of his fumble problem..

As for defense, I probably would have to say Landry, as well.. Fletcher is cornerstone of our D but he can always stand on standline with the mic talking to Blades during game.. Since I (and we) don't know how much Moore is improving; we did not really hear much about Landry last season, and that is because he did his job perfectly.. Losing him would make Blache to be more conserve when calling plays; that would be the worst thing that could happen to our D..
