Re: Doughty to start over Horton

Reed has always been cut from the classic Skins mold -- unheralded, hard working guy who isn't spectacular but quietly gives it 110% and gets the job done. Plus, given his personal struggles with his kid, how can you not root for the guy?

I've been rooting for the dude since he got here. He's probably not "the answer" but I don't see how solid, workmanlike commitment to fundamentals can be bad for a team in dire need of cohesion and performance.

Re: Doughty to start over Horton

He definitely deserves the starting job. Ironically I think he also might make Landry better as Landry has played his best football playing with Doughty.

He could be part of "the answer" for sure.

Send it to Blache and see what he thinks.

Re: Doughty to start over Horton

Yeah Doughty did a great job against one of the best teams and Qb in the NFL. I believe Josh Johnson was starting his first NFL game and the Bucs are terrible. 16-13 to the Bucs is not good.

This isn't the first time he's played like a man possessed in 2009. This is however the first time he's gotten to do it getting the majority of the reps.

I remember thinking today with Doughty being such a good tackler he might be an interesting fit at WLB but those transitions seldom work. More importantly McIntosh has been a beast at the will spot. However I understand the sentiment towards getting our best players on the field.

Re: Doughty to start over Horton

Reed just does his job. Always in position and always makes the tackle. He's become one of my favorite Redskins.

I am not talking about Doughty or the way he played today.
I am talking about false hope. We should not be measuring ourselves against the Bucs, Lions or Rams games. They are the three worst teams in the NFL. We should beat these teams. More than by three points. Oh wait you are one of those 'a win is a win' guys. Regardless of how well we play.
I will be the first one to proclaim Doughty the second coming of Ronnie Lott if he continues to play well and plays well against the big teams (Steelers, Giants, Saints etc.). Yes, Doughty had a good game against a very weak team that is starting a QB that has very little experience.
Wtf are you talking about?

I think any reasonable fan has a lot to worry about our team. That being said, very few teams have been consistently good this year...outside of the Colts and the Giants. Jacksonville was supposed to be dead in the water and they destroyed a now 0-4 Tennessee Titans.

That being said, even if we squeak by with a 4-2, I can see teams like the Iggles and the Cowpukes thinking that we're an easy win and underestimate us.

My point is about Doughty. Is it really that bad to be giving props to the guy? He seemed to be in position and made sure tackles the majority of the time. If he does that every game it wont matter who we play against it makes our whole team that much better and if everyone does that well then we have no problems!

Where is the so-called Doughty Doubter?

Re: Doughty to start over Horton

Just a note, but the last defensive play Doughty and Reed were on the field not landry.

Who's Reed? Is he friends with Armstrong? or is he Doughty's alter ego? LOL.
