Re: Fletcher to Start against Steelers

I haven't read enough about his injury, but I have to worry a little bit about the whole "balance problem" issue. We were just fined for improperly reporting RGIII's concussion, so I hope they didn't do anything goofy with reporting London's status that could potentially end up costing us even more.

Re: Fletcher to Start against Steelers

The doctors put London through something like six hours of testing for concussion like symptoms, and they found none. Smootsmack also mentioned vertigo as the issue, which I know drugs can treat but my buddy who had vertigo didn't get any relief from them. Thing is, London at 75% is probably better than Lorenzo or Robinson at 100%, or something like that

Re: Fletcher to Start against Steelers

I am a little worried Fletcher will be a liability against Heath Miller. I know he is the best option if he is healthy but if he's not really 100% I hope that they use him wisely.

Honestly we already give up 350 yards a game passing idt it really matters much. Our best hope is it's a rainy game and their speed at WR won't be a huge factor.
Either way glad 59 is playing!!

Re: Fletcher to Start against Steelers

He may start but he may not finish. I see him spending a lot of time on the sidelines. Don't want him to end up seeing birdies.

Re: Fletcher to Start against Steelers

Fletcher is a beast and I know that he's enough of a team guy to not put himself before the game. If he would truly be a problem, he would know better and sit out.

I like london but just like cooley can we please let the gibbs era players go they are old and declined. Yes londons declined depite his stats any one can tell u he has.
Here is an idea, stop being so damn negative about everything and watch London play out there. like it or not he is our best option.

To Matty, JR, NC etc etc: this is what haterade looks like. This is unbridled pessimism.

I'm just disappointed in our coaching, on defense mostly, but doesn't that fall on Shanny some too because he forced this sillier-by-the-day 3-4 experiment and we're still doing it, w/o the personnel (especially on the d-line) to make it work? I would actually like to give Haslett the benefit of the doubt and say he just doesn't get the 3-4 and that's why his gameplan/adjustments have been so lacking. I'd like to think if we switched back to a 4-3 Haslett, having all his experience with it, would get us back to a top 10-15 D within a season. And I pretty much believe it's possible. I think we have talent on defense.

And I think we have pretty awesome talent on offense. And while we've made good of that talent I pretty much believe we haven't made the best of it. The running game is elite, and tomorrow will likely prove it again. But I think overall, and especially with pass play-calling and design, we're leaving a lot out on the field. The end story stats are elite, but the story in the middle is inconsistency and especially when it counts most i.e. we leave some points on the field and in ways that seem pretty redundant.

Re: Fletcher to Start against Steelers

I'd try and get Robinson in there on obvious passing downs and leave Fletch in there on run downs.

Don't be surprised if London Fletcher ends up having 2 INTs and 18 tackles.

I personally think you overestimate the talent on Defense. I just dont see it with some of the people missing. Especially given our safeties, which I think are probably the worst in the league. I think its a fair amount different if we not only have T. Jackson and Meriweather (Meriweather isnt a huge upgrade, but still an upgrade), but also Orakpo and Carriker out makes the front seven not as effective in the pash rush. Having said that, I agree with the switch to 4-3 and would love Shanny to eat his ego on it and switch back, im not convinced that we jump up as much as you believe though.

As for offense, I think the system is hiding a weak offensive line, especially in the pass blocking. Kyle does get too cute at times, that I wont argue. But I think the system helps put up points that we wouldnt have otherwise. I believe a traditional NFL offense has RG3 running for his life in the passing game and makes the running game less effective. Over time, I actually hope we can transition to a more NFL type offense. But I dont think we could have done it this year. Yeah, they leave some points out there for sure, but they also get some points that they really shouldnt have gotten.

I'd tend to do the same. From everything I heard from people at Redskin Park this week Fletch must have had an unbelievably miraculous recovery the past two days. I just hope we don't regret this down the stretch. I think if we won last week he may not be playing today.
