The first line of your post sounds like a quote from London Fletcher, I'm curious as to what player he was talking about.

Biggest two minuses:

It was the preseason
It was the bills

Thumbs up Re: Pluses and Minuses: Bills vs Redskins

Hi everyone...1st post here.

Pluses: Loved how we were able to score TD's in the redzone on the 1st and 2nd teams...
Tackling seems to be much better than last season already...
O-line played exceptional compared to last season....
Not committing turnovers...Keep it up guys!

Minuses: Seems some players were hesitant on what they were supposed to do on Defense such as A.Carter. They were reacting to the offense instead of Attacking,like this Defense is designed to do....
Did not like that Rookie getting 5 steps or more on Carlos Rogers on that deep incomplete pass. He does that against Dallas,Colts or teams with very good QB's and so on and it's 6....Carlos has and always has scared me back there,but Hall played very well....
I have no Minuses for the Offense. It was like watching the Colts in a Redskins uniform compared to the last 4 or 5 years imo...

BTW...Glad to be here guys and look forward to having great discussions and debates with my fellow Redskins fans.

A good running game is a QBs best friend, I'm confident McNabb likes this offense better than Reid's

Re: Pluses and Minuses: Bills vs Redskins

Absolutely, not having a 70%-30% split with the majority of the offense's success on his shoulders should be a welcome change of pace for McNabb.

I think he'll be more efficient in this offense.

Re: Pluses and Minuses: Bills vs Redskins

Not to mention he will have 2 very good outlets at TE,which is a very rare luxury.
A good TE is a QB's best friend. McNabb will have 2 of them,which makes this team VERY dangerous imo...

Success with the Texans doesn't guarantee success with the Redskins. I think he will do just fine and is the real deal but at the same time I have that "it's too good to be true" feeling.

Certain factors make a hamstring injury more likely. Age, weight, flexibility and bad running stride can all cause a hamstring injury. Previous hamstring injuries make another occurrence highly likely as well. Performing explosive movements when your muscles are not prepared can rupture the muscle fibers and cause a major hamstring injury.
To some extent this injury occurs due to poor flexibilty training and poor warm up practices. To some extent this is a preventable injury, especially if you have a history of this injury, you should be prepared.
Regardless how 'Great his hands are' and all of his other 'awesome' strengths (which I have not seen), if his body fails him this much at his young age, maybe being a professional athlete is not in his future.
It is not in our best interest to have a WR on our roster that has this chronic problem.
To some extent this is lack of preparation.

You might be right I think if the FO didn't think he had something to offer they would of cut him already.

Re: Pluses and Minuses: Bills vs Redskins

Well, also, when you look at it Kelly is the biggest receiver we have on the team and many believe that, when healthy, he probably has the best hands on the team.

Even if Joey Galloway makes the team this year, you'd have to think next year he probably doesn't and how many more years do we keep a Santana Moss; two or three? So we'd be right back at square one trying to fill out the roster at that spot. I think Kelly is more about the next two years than just this season.

Down to 75 players on August 31; and down to 53 on September 4

(sidenote: Antonio Pierce just called the Skins the team to beat in the NFC East...so I like him again)

Re: Pluses and Minuses: Bills vs Redskins

^yeah when are first cuts. I betting Kelly's cut. He's only 2 inches shorter then Thomas so I can't imagine those 2 inches being a huge difference. Heck for all we know Thomas jumps higher then Kelly.
