Re: Time to move up some practice squad players

Joey Galloway should only run 2 routes, he's never been a complete WR.
It makes no sense for the coaches to have him running deep square ins or deep outs.
He doesn't cut and plant sharply, he's not strong, he doesn't stop and start well.
But, he still has above average straight line speed.

If he's on the field i only want to see him run 2 routes:

o go/fly/9 route-straight line sprint

o deep post

Before they start bringing people up from the practice squad they might want to make better use of the talent we have.

Why not give Armstrong more targets?
Why is Fred Davis an after thought?
He imho deserves and proved that he can produce a bigger part of the passing game.
You would think that after Moss and Cooley; Davis would be the No.3 option?
Brandon Banks is shifty and has speed that should be able to find ways to get him the ball in space.

I was watching NFL playbook yesterday and Solomon Wilcox said something that agree with (paraphrase): "Coaches should think of players not of plays when they create offense"

Re: Time to move up some practice squad players

Mathmatically we might be in the hunt still, but come on fellas, we still have to face the Gmen twice, and a possibly rejuvenated Boys team by the time we play them. The division is between the Gmen and Eagles. There won't be a third NFC East team in the playoffs. NFC North is still up for grabs also with GB and Chicago. GB and Chicago have better records than us and if that continues the second place finisher of that division could be the last wild card if NY or Philly stumble. You also have to factor in the South with NO and Atlanta. Shoot even young TB is going to be a factor. Too many teams ahead of us in terms of records/standings to even think we have a realistic shot at playoffs. We are playing horrible ball on both sides of the equation. Atlanta or NO will be a wildcard. NY or Philly could be a wildcard. Chicago or GB could be another. Too many good teams that we couldn't hope to beat out in a wildcard spot race.

Kyle is still in Houston, methinks. Not having Andre Johnson is probably annoying him to no end.

I hope it's true, I'm really excited to see what he can do.

Unrelated, something tells me Banks will not play 4 quarters this week.
With Rogers and Landry both out along with Hicks think they had other more pressing needs but to your point, he traveled with them bc they weren't sure about Banks, they feel good about him and apparently plan on putting him in for many plays

Interesting that Barnes is going to see a big role despite Buchanon and Westbrook having more experience. Apparently Haslett wants to "evaluate" him. Redskins Insider - Carlos Rogers, LaRon Landry will not play vs. Titans

Giving Barnes an "evaluation," Austin getting called up, Banks seeing an expanded role... Looks like we're trying to see what kind of quality youth we have moving forward. I like it. I know there are 7 games left and all, but it's good to see the coaching staff being realistic and giving the young guys a shot. Playoffs ain't happening, lets see what we have for the future.

Best case scenario, the youth influx is a shot in the arm and we make a push, worse case we at least know where we stand with some of our younger question marks.

Re: Time to move up some practice squad players

Im glad that Austin gets pulled up from the PS but are they still keeping Galloway active? Galloway does not play special teams but Roydell does. As for Barnes he was a 3rd pick out of U of Maryland he has not made a impact yet dispite his 3rd selection. Is he another Vinny waste of pick , well its time to find out now rather than later. We have to decide on if we are going to bring back Carlos back after this season. I say we should keep him even though he has bad hands he still covers well and tackles decent. Lets see how we fair tomorrow in the secondary without Landry or Rogers.

Other then WR screens and 9 routes i doubt it.
