Re: Redskins Bye Week

I think he's still a little banged up. But he'll probably see some action.

Re: Redskins Bye Week

I'm encouraged by the fact that both Bowen and Cofield are very familiar with playing against Vick and the Eagles, as well as Dirty30's will be back there.

Re: Redskins Bye Week

Just read that Hightower was hiding a bit of a shoulder injury and the bye gave him a chance to rest up -- can't wait to see what he does against that awful Philly LB corps

We tryed that against the Rams...And quite frankly it looked embarressing watching Rex and the receivers trying to complete a pass. We need to run Torain and punish them and bring in the other 2 too change it up.

I'd say Torain starting is a no brainer.

You can never tell with Shanny though, unless he has a Terrel Davis type RB he is more than willing to put anyone of his RBs in as the starter.

Re: Redskins Bye Week

Skins moved up two spots in ESPN power rankings during the bye week

"OK, Rex Grossman. We're watching you. The division is yours for the taking. What have you got? (Fox)"

I tend to like it more when no one is talking about them.

Thats true, its more of a gut feeling/logical thinking type of thing I guess. But like you say...

Re: Redskins Bye Week

Fred Davis, Rex Grossman get in work during bye - The Insider - The Washington Post
While most of his teammates scattered across the country, getting some rest and recovery in their home towns during the bye week, tight end Fred Davis decided to remain in the area and continued to report to Redskins Park to receive treatment for various bumps and bruises.

The tight end was happy to learn that quarterback Rex Grossman decided to do the same thing, and the two took advantage of the opportunity to get in some throwing and catching.

“It was just working on things we’re going to put in this week, running the same routes we always run and just working on not losing a step,” Davis said Monday after his team’s first practice following the bye.

Re: Redskins Bye Week

^ I love to read that kind of stuff. Davis has come a ways from oversleeping. Good to see and it has definitely made a difference. He's a freak at TE.

Re: Redskins Bye Week

Hmmmm......some chatter coming out about the Hightower shoulder thing.
Apparently he hurt in in week 1 and didnt tell anyone because he didnt want to lose playing time.

This is one of the reasons why I think we will see a strong dose of Torain. Personally Im good with that as I think a healthy Torain is our best RB.
