He doesn't run fast enough to pull a hamstring.

Shanahan said he hopes that Kelly can return to practice tomorrow, we'll see.

Hamstrings aren't something you can just suck it up and play through, he needs to be out there no doubt, but at the same time he needs to be right physically.

Matty if this were his first time trying to shake the injury bug I would have no problems. Right now I want them to hold him down and give him the needle. Some cortisone ought to do the trick.

Re: Pluses and Minuses: Bills vs Redskins

If he can't get on the field you just cut him loose. But forcing the issue doesn't do anyone any favors.

I'm game, then we can stop talking about it. Until that happens though he is the only player not participating and it is going to draw attention.

Don't forget Mike Furrey! What do you mean draw attention? Everyone knows about it.

I think Kelly makes the team still.

Yeah, we are going to have a conversation about Mike Furrey's inability to participate.

I agree, I didn't like that we brought him in in the first place.

I agree, the Jets are without a doubt our most formidable opponent in the preseason.

What [IMO] was one of the most encouraging signs in the game against the Bills was the ability to sustain offense. There were at least two scoring drives covering 70yds. or more, something we haven't been accustomed too seeing around here in a while.

So yeah! the Jets defense presents a real challenge and will surely test our ability to sustain offense. Should be a good match-up.

Re: Pluses and Minuses: Bills vs Redskins

Although I think Hall isn't worth the $ and he's probably an average cover corner, he still is our best play maker in the secondary. I don't think I've seen him ever drop an Int. Dude has great hands.

Re: Pluses and Minuses: Bills vs Redskins

Saden1, I agree with you on all counts except that I did have confidence in K.Shanahan. He's a proven commodity. He proved himself in Houston. My concern was would his pass happy offense gel with his fathers run happy offense? I was worried we would end up with the Gibb2/Saunders failed expierment. Although Gibbs used a man to man blocking style and Saunders used zone I believe. So knowing both Shanahan's used zone blocking probably wouldn't be as big a deal. It seemed to work out fine.

Pluses:
Finally an offensive scheme.
2 QB's capable of leading the offense.
Better protection from the OL.
WR's who seemed to know what they were doing.
No major injuries.

Minuses:
We played the Bills.
1st team defense needs tweeking. (better push off the line)
1st team offense needs tweeking. (dirt balls, over throws, redzone running)
special teams blocking.

We played the Bills folks. Lets see what we have after Sat. when we play a play off team from last yr. Defense- did Kemo play? was he not getting a good enough push off the line? It would be nice to have him and AH to switch out often since AH gets tired quickly. I'm sure the offensive issues will get corrected by game 1. Special Teams.... what can I say, I'm not a fan of our position coach there. I'd like to have seen him fired also but it is what it is. It did look somewhat different though. the KR was not catching the ball with the opposing team in his face all the time.

People are quick to praise Banks and then say he needs to work on his holding on to the ball. I saw his muff but he did recover and tried to make a play. Didn't Thomas do the same thing on the first kick off to us? or was that someone else? In a nut shell they looked 99% better then .... well .... almost 20 yrs. To me that is. I guess we will be better able to critique them after Sat. game but everything looked better. Scheme, routes, play calls, runs, passes, blocking, defensive pass rush, LB's, interception, KR. Maybe it's just me and a whole new start from top to bottom but they did remind me of Skins of old. Say Gibbs1. Even though they seemed to throw many plays out there I just get the feeling there was a lot held back still. I've always like Shanahan's thought process..... "this is my scheme, it's a great scheme, I have many weapons, I'll show you my plays, you just have to find a way to stop it."
