Re: Brandon Meriweather, You Big Tease (Injury News)

FYI, we've added Jerome Murphy to take Meriweather's spot on the roster.

Who?...Jerome Murphy - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Not even close to being where we are at with impact injuries. Some of the guys on that list are back, and the ones that are out for the season are backups. The starters that are out this Thursday that will hurt them are:

Sean Lee -season
Tyron Smith - they'll get back
DeMarco Murray - they'll get back
Kenyon Coleman - season
(possibly Costa)

Why are people comparing our injuries to others? Most of these injuries I see are the second string guys. I mean who really gives a **** if our 2nd string OT, WR, TE, LB goes down? Sure you need depth, but the drop off in talent from the starters to backups is generally great. Who you think is going to make a team fall of the map faster? Having your starters out or having your backups out? You think having Nield out is going to be a bigger impact than having Kerrigan out?

Let me know when Dallas loses DeMarcus Ware, Dez Bryant, Jason Witten, Doug Free, Gerald Sensabaugh, Danny McCray,. That's essentially what we have lost and more. Hell, at least they'll get many of those starters not playing Thursday back, we won't. Not this season.


**** these shitty injuries.

Re: Brandon Meriweather, You Big Tease (Injury News)

Sean Lee was there London Fletcher. In on every tackle. QB of their defense. The guy who took his place, Bruce Carter said this about Cleveland's late TD play:
Quote:
Bruce Carter: 9 guys in huddle late in game "wasn't a big issue." It was a "little communication problem...that can easily be corrected."
and this about RGIII
Quote:
Bruce Carter said he has watched a little bit of film on Robert Griffin III today, said he hadn't really watched him before today.
He seems to be a good player, but SLee was a big hit for them. LT Tyron Smith on their line is like TW on ours.

edit: took out a quote from BCarter - it applied to himself, not RGIII

Re: Brandon Meriweather, You Big Tease (Injury News)

I feel terrible for the guy. From what I can gather from hearing what the players all say about him, he just loves to be on the field. This must be killing him.

Well hopefully we'll have him back by week 1 next year. If that's the case, and Orakpo and everyone else is healthy, we could be pretty good on d.

Yeah, exactly. It's not about how many players you lost, but who those players are.

My confidence is growing. I think we'll score a lot of points. Hopefully Gomes or whoever was inspired by Meriweathers play and Jenkins and Rob Jackson put a beatdown on Smiths replacement. Hasletts adjustments are always the key imo.

Let's hope he doesn't forget to pressure like he has in the past. Win game with pressure, next game is where is the pressure?

To an extent. If a team loses one top flight wr and another team loses 7 non-starters that do see playing time during a game than i would have to disagree with this statement.

Re: Brandon Meriweather, You Big Tease (Injury News)

Injuries have held this Redskins team back. Helu Jr., Meriweather, Garcon, Orakpo, Carriker, F. Davis! That six players right there that are capable of having a huge impact. And I might as well mention Tanard Jackson, who is suspended for the season. This team has been unfortunate when it comes to not having great players healthy and available.

Im just not into excuses. Would it help to have your team 100 % healthy all year - uh yeah. Does it ever happen - no. I love Garcon - not sure if he is "great". Same can be said for that whole list. Rak and Carriker are huge but they arent "great". Merriweather was cut and was far from great last year. He had three really good quarters against a rookie qb and a horrible offense. Helu would be a nice change of pace back but im pretty happy with Almo. Jackson is a dope whose off the field problems greatly outweigh his talent. Paulsen has stepped in very nicely although i love Davis. You should go back and read the excerpt from football outsiders i posted - amazing how the last several superbowl teams - winners and losers were decimated with injuries. Whether for a matter of weeks or for the season. I agree with Matty we are not cursed injury wise, far from it. It just seems that way because we are redskins fans. Look around the league rite now at some other teams with major injuries. The Steelers will be playing back to back weeks with Byron Leftwich and friggin Charlie Batch at QB. The grass is always greener on the other side.
Edit : what im getting at is we can still win the nfc east even with those guys out. Now if our o-line and or RG-3 /almo goes down ill say we are cursed by the injury bug.

Re: Brandon Meriweather, You Big Tease (Injury News)

Rak, Garçon, etc don't have to be "great". I kinda get tired of hearing that.

Bottom line is we are better with them on the field.

We saw how the Steelers did without Ben... It's not the quantity of the injuries.. It's the quality. It has nothing to do with excuses.. It's facts! That's why there is an injury report. If it didn't have a impact on your team then we wouldn't even need one. Let's just sign the next mug to play the position. You are right in one aspect.. Every team in the NFL gets injuries, but when you get injuries to key positions then it becomes a great influence on your teams performance.

Kerrigan is missing Orakpo right now, and even worse.. He's missing Carriker. The guy who lined up right beside him all year last year and had 6 sacks is gone.

This topic should be dead though.. People are going to argue till their faces turn purple but only the ones who understand the impact certain injuries have will be right.

Everyone saw the impact Merriweather had on our team with him being on the field, and that was just one small piece to the puzzle. If you think not having a 100% Garcon on the field after his first and only performace against the Saints wouldn't make a difference.. You're crazy..

Not to mention Paulsen is filling in nice, but he's not leading our team in receiving yards or reception like Davis was. Take out the pieces of our team in comparison to other teams, and NO TEAM has ever won many games misses the same pieces.. Missing a T, OLB, or a few others? Sure, but..

RT
Pro Bowl LB
DE
Pro Bowl Safety
TE
3RD down back
#1 WR


I mean, we are missing KEY parts.. It's not like we are missing a few players or even key players.. We are basically missing our BEST players! The select few that would be starter quality on other teams.

Injuries are not excuses.. Playing hurt, and then blaming it on the injury is an excuse, but if you can't even be on the field.. That's not an excuse. That's a pure and simple FACT.

Wow what a rant. I think i could call you the greatest guy in the world and you would pick it apart and put it back together again in your own words. We are not missing our best players bucket. RG-3 / Almo / and TW are all very healthy.
Edit: are our injuries detrimental to the team - yes. Are they historically or abnormally bad? - no. Have teams had success with injuries paramount to the ones we have rite now - absolutely. Do i think we can finish strong with these injuries - hell yes I do.

Name a team... I might believe you then.. You can say "it works" but proving it is two different things. Name a team that was missing there leading Sack Artist, Best DLman, Best WR, Best TE, and Best RB before Almo started doing so well, which isn't a surprise because who doesn't look good in Shanny's system? Seriously.. We all loved Helu last year and what he did. To deny it would be false.

Edit : Might as well add Best DB too, because in one half, Merriweather looked better then any DB we've had on the field this year.

Edit 2 : I'm sorry you think that was a rant. That is what a legit post looks like. I know you are not use to seeing one as you've never actually posted one yourself. Keep to the 10 character posts you're use too.. Keep quoting yourself too. You can get that post count higher.

Just saying.
