I will say that I'm a much bigger fan of Helu at this point than Royster. Royster must be much better in protection because Helu has a clear advantage when it comes to burst and elusiveness. And how about Garcon looking like a true #1 wr? On the Redskins? holy shit...
As I said in the O-Line thread, Garcon took a step in the right direction towards validating the FO's strategy of emphasizing the WR position in free agency and, in demonstrating that the FO's evaluation of Garcon. I know it's just preseason but I liked what I saw. Also, just a note, Garcon seemed like a much more solidly built WR than I remembered.

Maybe the bottom line is that, as the quality of your skill position players goes up, the burden shouldered by your offensive line goes down. We've upgraded our skill position players. By how much, we shall see, but they are definitely upgrades. So while we don't have a group of superstars out there on the OL, they may not necessarily need to be. More respect from defenses = fewer blitzes.

He seems to have bulked up a bit. For a second during his TD run, I thought he was one of our RBs.

Garcon is a stud.He will open thing up like no one has for years. Please stop the end zone flips.

Well that's interesting.

Some of you may recall that I told you last week, thanks to a last minute stay of execution, Cooley was going to be given until the first preseason game and then likely released.

This, though, is the first I'm hearing of him being re-signed for less money

Re: Skins/Bills postgame

Griffin to Garcon is something we're going to hear a lot of this year. It's looking pretty obvious from camp and from last night that they are going to feature him, a lot.

Me and my office buddy were saying the exact same thing!

Not clear what the timing of the release/re-sign would be from the report/speculation. But thought I would pass along. I assume this will be the subject of a tweet or two today from Russell/others.

Re: Skins/Bills postgame

Banks got a lot of targets because it's preseason and they're trying to determine his worth, if any, to the team. Expect Robinson and/or Austin to get the same next week

That, for me is an excellent thing. When was the last time the starting group went out, executed effectively, and then took the night off. In my memory, we always were trying to get them to "find a rhythm" or just make one play, for the longest time. It's nice to see what looked like a professional first unit come out, get it right, and be done. The contrast of that to when Rex and crew came out was night and day. Cousins group looked like a preseason game.

And again, if the NFL isn't inking the new agreement with the Officials unions today they ought to be hacked in the press every day until they do. The film clip of the fake refs placing the ball at the 20yd line, and then the replay of the player downing it at the 4 yd line, ought to be a highlight from ESPN,CBS, NBC and Fox Sports until the deal is done.

After how Paul played, I wonder if they're reconsidering cutting him at all (regardless of if he would resign).

Paul is too interesting a talent/physical specimen to cut after one bad game (his first at TE). Have to stick with him for at least two more preseason games. He's also a much cheaper option.

I think the worst was towards the end of the first half, when the Redskins' were penalized for delay of game with 5 seconds left and they were out of timeouts. Chan Gailey had to remind the officials that NFL rules require 10 seconds to be run off the clock.
