Re: Landry to miss opener vs Giants

I have mixed feelings about Landry; obviously he's a beast on the field but doesn't play smart in coverage at times. He is an impact player but he's always running his mouth & taunting, and that seems to backfire more than help.

On one hand I would like to see him mature & be as great as he can be as a redskin. On the other, if his attitude is a problem (and that appears so at times), his hammy is too & he's not a Shanny guy, I wouldn't be too upset if we got a great return on a trade of him. I don't want to blow this out of proportion but given this latest twitter incident & his contract year, Allen et al will likely be listening to offers.

^^^^^I really wish he could get it together, he hasn't done anything so bad that the coaches or the fans couldn't get over it. He just needs to mature a little....well, a lot.

Re: Landry to miss opener vs Giants

We drafted 4 safeties between 2006-2008 (Doughty, Landry, Moore, Horton) plus we had Sean Taylor until late 2007...it's crazy to think that Doughty is the only one of the five active for opening day 2011.

Look at all the QB's we went through in the last 10 years. It's par for the course when you change coaches like you're changing your oil.

Re: Landry to miss opener vs Giants

I would rather see him sit out for a bunch of games than try to play on it too early and screw it up for the rest of the year or his career. I am not that familiar with Achilles injuries but I am sure it can be just as bad as screwing up your knee.

Way too late to place him on the PUP list right?

Yeah, it's not about the changes so much as that Reed is the one standing

Re: Landry to miss opener vs Giants

Knocking landry for talking shit and getting hyped about the game is just stupid.... almost every player does it u see those sound fx shows and wat not... its an intense grown ass mans game.. Landry has made more plays for us thru the years than not, I'm sick of hearing ppl hate the player and not the game.

There's a bit more to it IMO. Yeah, lots of guys talk, but when you talk trash before the game then get burnt on the opening play like he did in the philly game, it brings a lot of negative attention to you.

Landry's issue isn't the talking, that may just be a symptom, his issues are being a good all around safety, not just making the big hit & letting everyone know. I think he's shown what he's capable of yet hasn't put it all together yet. I agree though, he makes more plays than not.

Does LL spitting twice on a player and starting a fight with him bother you in the least, or does LL get a pass yet again for having muscles? What about scheduling vacations during the season, or running his mouth on twitter?

I don't think that people on here so much hate the man, as want him to act better.

Re: Landry to miss opener vs Giants

Do we even know if Landry was talking trash before the game though?

Something irked me about that story. I don't think LaRon and D-Hall would be making fun of DeSean's concussion, and if they were making fun of him, why the frak would they do it in earshot?

When I look at that fight, I see LaRon pat DeSean on the shoulder like "have a good game", and then DeSean flies off the fricking handle for some reason and shoves LaRon, which started the whole fight.

And the real problem on the first play was that the play call was friggin' stupid. Haslett made D-Hall the spy for Michael Vick on that play. D-Hall gets no jam on DeSean Jackson off the line of scrimmage since he either is spying Vick or bit on the play fake, and Landry, already dealing with the achilles injury, wasn't going to beat D-Jax in a foot race.

Landry looks like he started a fight and then got burnt, when it seems to me that dude got the bad end of a stupid situation with DeSean being a brat about something, and then this defensive coordinator and cornerback essentially selling him out.

Re: Landry to miss opener vs Giants

Spitting on a guy? Because another player said he spit? is there any proof of this spitting?

We understand polywog dislikes Landry on a personal level, but he brings it to the table when he's asked, and I love watching him play.
