Thanks for giving him ideas.

Go read the George Michael interview at DC Sports Bog, a very close personal friend of Snyder. he confirms Snyder's GM involvement. No need to wonder anymore.

Re: Doughty to start over Horton

not really a big deal. Rather see Horton in. Was hoping for something a little distract in response from Blanche. Maybe a shake up moving Jarmon in the starting line up, dropping Smoot, moving Orakpo to a more prominent role on the Line...Our pressure on the QB has been really disappointing so far

The answer is Blache. I totally agree.

Horton caught up with the receiver and turned his head to look for the ball. It wasn't a flagrant call. I thought the ref could have let that play stand without calling a foul. Zorn should have stood up for his player.
You're gonna get that call 99 times out of 100. He was beat on the route and didn't turn his head on time or get his hands up for the ball. If it was the other way around and a DB didn't get called, we'd be screaming bloody murder.

I agree. They had the head of officials on NFL network explaining the call. If Horton hadn't bumped the receiver before he went for the ball it would have been a good play. Well that was his explanation.

Re: Doughty to start over Horton

Landry was going to be our sure starter for SS to pair him with the Meast for the next 10 years. Although Landry can run a 4.3 and thus cover sideline to sideline, his college position was SS.
I agree that I'd like to see Moore get a bit more playing time, and see Landry at SS, but then the dilemma is how to use Horton/Doughty

As long as they can both get on the field...I don't care...they're both great players.

Re: Doughty to start over Horton

Horton hit him as he looked back and put up his arm so the call was correct, close but correct. Here is a link to the play but you need to advance it to the 3 min mark if you don't want to watch the highlights of the game.

Re: Doughty to start over Horton

Lol, where's DoughtyDoubter?

I like Horton but anyone who watched the Lions game last weekend had to have seen Doughty flying all over the field. Anyway starting only means so much in this situation. Both of them are going to get reps this Sunday. In fact I'd be willing to bet that they'll probably we something along the lines of a 60-40 split.

See I keep hearing this but the fact of the matter is that Landry was probably at his best as a pro during the second half of 2007 when he took over at FS. I still can't figure out though if Landry's drop off is due mainly to Blache's scheme or Landry's fundamentals. On top of that I would also add that maybe Jim Zorn is to blame due to the fact that the offense hasn't had a big lead in quite some time which would result in teams feeling more pressure to go deep.

That's the same as it's been. The only thing is now Doughty will be getting 60 instead of 40. Doughty has been looking like a beast. I kind of hate to take him off of ST because he is one of the main contributors.

I'm still waiting to see what Kareem Moore can do. Lets get this guy on the field, Blache.

Re: Doughty to start over Horton

Generally, this is a good problem to have...my only issue is I don't want Horton to start playing it safe, I assess Horton as medium risk, but high reward. Doughty is medium risk, medium reward.

I totally agree. He rarely is a position to make a play in this scheme. I remember when we played Seattle in the playoffs and he had 2 INTS adn was playing lights out. I was like whoa. He hasn't been the same yet. I think Blache is mainly to blame. Seems like ever since he got trucked by Jacobs he hasn't been the same either.

Don't start this again he was FS in college and his entire life except when he came here b/c ST21 was one of the best FS in the game the moved Landry to SS.
