Re: Redskins-Bears, Best and Worst

Before an investigation is launched, I am the one that voted for Haynesworth....for shits and giggles. Clearly DHall is the man of the match, no question. I think it is clear though that Haynesworth can be a force and valuable to a team lacking DL anchor. It is now clear he should have played last week.

Come on now Matty, Donovan a Pro Bowl QB having to get up to speed? I am starting to understand why the Eagles took the gamble and traded him. He still looks like he has something left in the tank, but he is almost Brunell like.

Well it shows me that they aren't sitting him out saving him for a future trade for next season, or maybe they have decided to showcase h im after all. I hope they keep him around. Once his sack totals start to rack up, I think he will start to like it here.

Re: Redskins-Bears, Best and Worst

i wouldnt go that far. weve seen the type of throws that made us hate him in philly. doesnt matter the type of pro you are, it takes a while to get used to a new system.

Re: Redskins-Bears, Best and Worst

I believe that was the first time I've ever seen a kicker hit the top of an upright square. That I can recall anyways...

Hall was the man today. Haynesworth is playing for his future, whether that be here or elsewhere. He had a very solid game. Torain ran the ball well, but did cough one up.

McNabb has to step it up next week. The drops among the receiver corps is getting hairy. The Smiths and punting away from Hester could have very well cost the Skins in the long run hadn't the Bears decided to give it back 6 times.

Re: Redskins-Bears, Best and Worst

We're still waiting for that seminal moment from Donovan McNabb, Anthony Armstrong and the whole offense really. I think we saw a major part of it tonight in Ryan Torain with his tough running and his pretty decent blitz pickups and some of my concerns over losing CP are allayed.

Still waiting on that offense, McNabb is not playing well by any measure -- we won in spite of him today

Yeah, but how complex is this new system? Can't be that hard if you are a vet like McNabb. Plus, it is the execution that is killing us, not just Donovan, but dropped passes, missed blocking assignments. It isn't just Donovan, but he is playing subpar for us.

I don't post very often but I had to log on and give props to DHALL. Reminded me of Sean T that last fateful year when he was really ball hawking constantly. Honorable mention to #92 for absolutely destroying whoever lined up against him.

Torain is a nice change of pace, but how long can he last? WE can't kill the kid like Gibbs overused Clinton and ran him into the ground. Hopefully CP can come back in good shape and be able to give the kid a breather.

Re: Redskins-Bears, Best and Worst

I know, I know: this usually never happens when we play bad teams, but I can't wait for that one game when everything goes well. We've seen Mcnabb have a 300 yard game, Torain with 100+ yards, the defense with 4 turnovers, and good special team play.

I would love nothing more than to drop 30 points, win by two scores, and go into the BYE week with a 5-3 record.

Proud of my skins so far though, def. when I thought they would only win 6 games this year.

He played in one offense for 11 years, and he's 7 games into this new offense, so an adjustment period has to be expected. Just saying it's nice to have a ground game to fall back on for now, but McNabb definitely needs to start picking up his game. Just a little premature to write him off as finished, or assume he's not going to get a new contract here, as some are suggesting.

It's not unreasonable to give a guy a 5 or 6 game adjustment period. But, you know, McNabb turns 34 in November. He's gotten by on veteran guile to this point, keeping us in winnable games, but there's no reason to believe that we would have pulled the trigger on a trade where 1/2 of the way into the remainder of the contract, it's still a "learning experience."

Everyone realized that the only reason you pull the trigger on the trade is to win games in 2010. We're winning games, it's true, but the passing game is non-existent.
