I feel kinda bad for the guy. He seems like a good kid but his body just keeps letting him down.

He just seemed like unnecessary camp fodderthat was keeping younger guys from getting snaps. In retrospect Kelly is doing that all by himself.

To clarify, meant he takes up space as in he was just there. But I didn't really notice him either penetrating or helping others (a la Haynesworth and Perry Riley). I also saw him get pushed back a bit. Overall, not totally impressed. Still early though

Ryan Torain: He runs too high? So did Eric Dickerson. Anyhow, happy to see him run well, otherwise all my praise of him would have been for naught. More importantly though, nice to see him back on the field less than two years after tearing his ACL.

Minus:

Chad Rinehart: So sad I was wrong about drafting him. Maybe he's just not totally healthy yet, but while everyone talks about cutting Kelly and whether he was a busted draft pick; I'm more concerned with Rinehart. Not sure there's a place for him on this roster

Maake: Didn't seem to get much penetration at DT. He takes up space, but wasn't much of a difference maker
SS.... Who is the player Fletcher is referring too?

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

I've come to the conclusion this was your very own quote. Sorry for the misunderstanding what you intended. I just never remember you having any form of opposition to Fletcher.

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.
