I agree with SFREDSKINS, bench ARE, Heyer, Rabach, and maybe...maybe Moss.
No Moss has earned his colors but the rest of that bench list I agree with...Id put Hall back there to return kicks and punts...he was drafted to the falcons for this

Id make Heyer ARE and for that matter during the bye week all of the team wear white to practice..take the emblem off their helmets and tell them they have to earn those back names off the jersey's too

Re: Thoughts going into the bye week...

We need to put Heyer back at RT move Mike Williams to RG. I hope Levi Jones can man the RT spot but not sure who is better than Rabach at center. Will Montgomery and Edwin Williams are our opts. Rabach is a backup at best. Lets try to get Marko Mitchell sometime on the field if the season is done. ARE just use on offense and Betts is a no running bum. Rather see Rock carry the ball on 3rd downs.

Re: Thoughts going into the bye week...

This is our worst team and coaching staff and FO people since Snyder has taken over. Worst than Spurrier. Im sick of it. Snyder needs to fire everybody from top to bottom.

I made the comment in a post last week that "the ONLY thing" I liked about ARE as a punt returner was that he would catch the ball, well I retract that statement now.

Heyer has cost us dearly all season, he's not NFL ready yet, and he may never be. Two words, Offensive Line pretty much sum-up's the downfall of this team so far. It's just a shame we have to virtually waste an entire season because the most important area of the team has repeatedly been left unchanged. I feel for the players that have fought so hard with only prospects for the future to look foreward to for the next nine games.

I still think this is worst because I held no expectation Spurrier would succeed. I felt different about Zorn (especially after the 6-2 start) and this team has more talent than Spurrier squads, so my expectations were higher and I believe this team has fallen farther than any other during DS's reign of terror.

Re: Thoughts going into the bye week...

Changing coaches, be it head coach or otherwise, is not the answer.

What I saw last night vs Philly was a team that did not play to win, but instead, was so scared of failure that they tried to play "not to lose". Hope that makes sense.

Campbell is screwed so tight right now that he does not know whether to scratch his watch or wind his ass. It was apparent throughout the game. Several passes, he pulled back, then, tried a diffferent reciever. He was not following his first instinct.

What I saw was a terrible lack of execution and confidence. I don't care if you had the late, great Bill Walsh in the booth calling the plays. Plain and simple the offense did not execute, and no team can win if they cannot execute.

I think it has gotten so bad there, that, it is not that they cannot execute. It is that they are so afraid of failure, that they are actually scaring themselves away from properly executing an offensive series.

Re: Thoughts going into the bye week...

This is probably the most disappointing season I've had in my 20+ years as a Redskins fan. I'm truly embarrassed by the product out there each and every week. That being said, I'd like to see some of the following coming out of the bye week-

-No more ARE on punt returns. He literally brings nothing to that role. Secure hands? Nope, he's muffed and/or been involved in a fumble each of the past 3 games. Explosiveness? Nope, he has zero burst. Fearlessness? Nope, he seems to seek a nice patch of grass to nestle into whenever a defender is within 3 yards of him. He's done, let's get Thomas or Moss into that role full time.

-Youth movement time. You drafted Kevin Barnes, Chad Rinehart and Marko Mitchell for a reason. Quit making excuses and play them. So what if they make mistakes, the veteran starters are making mistakes! The only difference is your veterans are making the same mistakes they've made for YEARS (I'm talking about you still not being able to defend a double move Carlos Rogers) and they're not going to change. Let the kids play so you can see what you have! I'd be 100% fine with ARE being inactive with Mitchell replacing him on the active roster on game days. Will Montgomery is worthless, could Rinehart really be worse than him? If there is any bigger indictment of Cerrato, it's that he's made 16 draft picks over the past 2 years and even the 'best pick'-Chris Horton, is playing to his draft spot this year. See if the kids can play or not.

-I don't see any point in a QB change. I'm not saying this as a JC fan, but there's no reason to put a 38 year old Todd Collins back there and we hadn't heard a sniff about Andre Woodson since we signed him to the practice squad.

"Playing not to lose" is a cliche often used when describing the way this team plays football. It's a well known fact that execution is essential in any team sport, and espically football. It's not difficult to see where the failures lie in the lack of execution, failures that can only be corrected with better personnel.

It's neccessary that they be afraid, not afraid of failure, rather afraid of the consequences of failure.

We have a HC that comes on after each depressing loss with a demeanor so simular to the last, his expressions never change. Right now, his team is an extention of that demeanor. Maybe he calls it "staying medium" but at some point in time the HC MUST show some emotion, or feeling of disgust when his team repeatedly turns in less than professional performances.

All of these. ARE is fine as a slot WR, he made some catches last night, but NO MORE RETURNS.

Rabach should not be starting anyways, BEFORE last night. He better be gone this offseason, he's been costing us points for years.



Also, I would not mind making Sherman Smith the interim HC and make Sherman Lewis the OC and playcaller for the remainder of the year. It was a big improvement over Zorn. Other than contractual reasons, there is no point of keeping Zorn on board.

No QB can win or even execute without any protection whatsoever.

He has the talent and can win, but not with this line.

What bothers most about JC is his lack of emotion out on the field. He is so medium I cant tell if we were winning or losing the game. He doesnt show any fire or nor does he show any vocal leadership. It would be shocking if he would chew out a O-Lineman for getting him killed. He is just to nice of a guy to play QB for the Redskins. We will need to bring a new QB in for next season.
I feel ya but i laid off the whole emotion thing Eli had that same thing said about him. Now he has a ring so that doesn't bother me any more.
