Who will make the cut?

After watching last nights game (atleast we won) I noticed that our back up qb situation is a problem... If colt doesn't play better soon he may get the ax!! Chase looked damn good 6-8 2 tds , and of course Collins is old so who stays and who goes ?

I think Chase will still ultimately be on the practice squad, unless something drastically changes.

Re: Who will make the cut?

Unless Colt gets his butt in gear I could see Daniel beating him out.

I still hope that Colt makes the team, and I think that Dorsey is better than Rock Cartwright. Randel El could get the ax aswell. Marko Mitchell should make the team.

Re: Who will make the cut?

I think it will take more than 1 good game from Chase to beat out CB. yeah he had a pick but other than that he did well on the drive until the bad play at the end trying to make something happen.

I think we should try to develop both of them at least for one more year. And the best way to do that most likely is to put Colt at #3 and Chase on the PS. Unless, either can prove that Collins is expendable. But I would find it a bit ironic if we give up on Colt after two preseasons when we have (rightfully) showed patience with Campbell.

Of course, no matter what happens I'm still the Crew Chief of the Caravan of Chase, the Archbishop of the Church of Chase, the Chief Justice of the Court of Chase

Might be a risk we have to take.

Re: Who will make the cut?

let's fake an injury on chase, put him on IR and develope him that way.
Or just cut collins. Cause he looks slow, doesn't fit the WC offense, costs more than either Brennan or Daniels, and is just an int waiting to happen. I think if Campbell were to go down, then we're screwed, but we should put in a fresh legs quick young player, than an old slow vet, who attracts sacks left and right.



Also here's what ESPN's Matt Mosely thought about our game last night:
My thoughts on Skins' win over Pittsburgh

August 23, 2009 8:00 AM


Posted by ESPN.com's Matt Mosley

I don't think it's time to panic about Jason Campbell going 1-of-7 for 10 yards in a 17-13 preseason win over the Steelers. But it's important that Campbell finds a rhythm in the third preseason game -- and he knows that.

Campbell missed Malcolm Kelly on a deep ball and he was high on a throw to Santana Moss. I think he was pressing a bit because he knew he was only going to play three series. The good news is that Washington's running game looked strong throughout the game. OK, here are a few things that caught my eye:

•Brian Orakpo has been sensational through two preseason games. I enjoyed watching him playing with the backups in the second quarter. At that point, he was obviously the best player on the field and he even looked solid in coverage. Orakpo embarrassed his former college teammate at Texas, Tony Hills, in the second quarter. Orakpo used a bull rush to push Hills back in the pocket. He knocked Hills about 3 feet into the air.
•Jim Zorn made it sound like Campbell had a nice evening. Zorn praised Campbell for his decision making and thought he managed the team well. Obviously Zorn want to make sure Campbell's confidence level remains high. Campbell put on a brave face for reporters after the game, but I assure you he's beating himself up over the six incompletions.
•How can you keep Marcus Mason or Marko Mitchell off this roster? Mason's one of the best preseason backs this organization has had. On Saturday, he showed the speed we've grown accustomed to seeing, but he also mixed in some power. He sent a Steelers safety flying at the end of one play. Mitchell made the nice touchdown catch from Chase Daniel. He hesitated at first in order to give Daniel some space to throw the ball. Then Mitchell simply won a jump ball. The former Nevada receiver might end up being the fifth receiver.

•I still think Devin Thomas will make some mental errors, but he's capable of making big plays. I liked the twisting catch he made Saturday night. He has all the tools, but he needs every rep in the preseason he can get.

•Scary moment in the first half when fullback Mike Sellers was writhing in pain with a knee injury. The good news is that Sellers only has a bruised knee. He's such a vital part of the Redskins' running game. They would really struggle without him.

•Reed Doughty was everywhere . I pretty much wrote the guy off last season, but he's actually had a solid camp. He made a couple of open-field tackles that were very impressive and he looked confident in the secondary.

•Is it too early to start worrying about the Skins' awful coverage units? They looked especially bad in punt coverage. They didn't have anything close to containment on the edges.

•I used to watch Redskins safety Lendy Holmes when he was in high school. The former Oklahoma Sooner was one of the surest tacklers on the field Saturday. A lot of rookies look a little wide-eyed at this point. That's not the way Holmes operates.

•I love the fact that safety Kareem Moore is a high-energy guy, but he needs to play under control. It seems like Moore's constantly going for the interception. Moore and another '08 draft pick, Rob Jackson, have a tendency to overrun plays.

•I'd cut D.J. Hackett the first chance I had. It's not that I think he's a bad player, but right now, he's simply taking up space. I'd much rather see Mitchell, Thomas and Kelly getting the majority of the reps.

•Daniel had a really effective outing. I think he has the edge on Colt Brennan at this point. And yes, I know that hurts at lot of you guys.

•On the interception that Todd Collins threw, Thomas needs to come back for the ball. He sort of froze on his comeback route, and that allowed former Colts cornerback Keiwan Ratliff to make a really nice play on the ball.

•If you're Brennan, you can't throw the ball into traffic in the red zone. I'm sure Zorn was incensed with that turnover. Just an awful decision by Brennan.

•Kelly does a really nice job of catching the ball away from his body. He did some nice things in Saturday's game, but the best thing he does is catch the ball consistently. Thomas might have the most upside, but Kelly's showing the most maturity right now.

•Former CFL star Dominique Dorsey has to make this team as a return specialist. And he's halfway home. He had some outstanding returns. The Skins need to reserve a spot on the roster for him. He's that good as a return guy -- and he runs with a little power.

No way Collins gets cut.

Agreed. Chase had a good game but I doubt they're ready to let Colt go at this point. It would be nice if, as SmootSmack said, they could make Collins expendable because I would like to see both given some more time before releasing either one. Chase could be put on the PS if there is no other choice but there is a risk he'll be picked up. It's really too soon to make any decisions IMO. After the next 2 games, the decisions may become clearer. I think Zorn would have to see a lot in the 2 young QB's to release Collins but that would be a good sign for our team and our future at QB.

Re: Who will make the cut?

I think the toughest cuts are going to come on the defensive side of the ball.

Im really pulling for Lendy Holmes the back-up safety.

Re: Who will make the cut?

Cutting Collins will save some money if done in the right way but he has done something that none of these guys have, won real games for us. Yes he's old and can't really run, but I would rather have him than either one of those two for this year. I'd like to give him a whole season but that's not happening. Taking the team to the playoffs if huge in my book. He and Charlie Batch are career bench warmers but they can both get the job done.

It was good to see Soup throw the long ball. Even if they don't catch it the other D has to say,"what if?"

Why don't they let Mason return kicks or punts?

I like Reed Doughty.

I think Marko Mitchell might be another good seventh round pick.

Greg Blache lit into the first team D. When they get things right we'll be monsters. We did get held on almost every single play! That can't be bad.

I don't see Wynn making this team.
