I wish Tanard Jackson would get re-instated, even if he hasn't played in over a year he would be an upgrade. Time to cut the cord with Meriweather, he can't stay healthy for a game.

Talk about getting away from Redskins culture. We used to pound the ball to set up the pass, looks like it may start switching the other way around. Which would be okay, so long as we had a consistently decent pass game, which we don't yet.
Well under Gibbs we had big slow OL who blocked man to man and created holes. Shanahan has always like smaller faster OL for his zone blocking. But that also requires the QB to be a little mobile, moving him around the pocket or roll outs.

smaller OL are going to get owned all day blocking man to man trying to create a pocket for RG3 whom is either afraid to run or is being told not to run.

Yea I don't get it, didn't he already serve his punishment? If the commish has no intention of reinstating him then tell us so we can hold on to his rights and release him and fill his spot with someone who can play.

Sav Rocca has been getting worse every game. He's the only punter in the NFL right now with a less then 40 net.

What happen to him booming punts for 60 yards inside the 20 every game? Miss those days.

Jolly for the Packers was suspended a few times for codeine and back playing why not Jackson?

The scheme's been completely changed. Or at least we seem like we're in between schemes. We're not doing anything that we did last year.

Team has no identity whatsoever. Before last year, we were the run first/pound the rock team. Last year we were the read option team. This year we're... ???

Now's not the time to figure out who we are. I thought we were supposed to work out that kind of stuff during pre-season?

The Morgan signing was completely 100% useless.

Couldn't get Finnegan due to cap issues. Couldn't get any decent OL on the market due to cap issues. Having 36 mil stripped from you is huge. I don't think for a minute those guys are on the team because of that's who we chose. These guys are on the team because that's all we could afford. Polumbus is cheap. Dhall is cheap. Wilson is cheap. Fletcher is the one guy that bewilders me. I'm still stunned they brought him back at his salary KNOWING he was a huge liability on defense. It's not like they could have afford Ellerbe though, not that I even think he's worth 7 mil per season. (he's not)


Now, if you want to make the argument about Josh Morgan and his salary, that's a different story. Dude is NOT worth 6 mil per season. No way, no how.

Besides the drop yesterday, I thought Morgan has been a good player for us.. I mean, we could watch Hankerson drop every other pass?

I dont think he was bad at all last year. Not closing the book on him just yet. Looks like Hankerson is ready to over take him as the starter, which is a good thing. Unless Morgan has an unbelievable year I expect a cut or renegotiate. Not alot of risk in Morgan or Merriweather signings.

Morgan's blocking is a asset of his as well.

It is, but not at a 6 mil per season price tag.

Re: Skins vs Packers post game thread

The Skins have played two games. They are in a relatively weak division where no team is undefeated. If they must be 0-2, then they are at least fortunate enough to be only one game behind the division leaders. They could turn things around and win the division. Such things happen all the time in the NFL. Like the Redskins' great finish last season, for example.

The NFC east could end up being the worst division in football. 0-4 outside of the division thus far. Of course it's only two weeks but a 9-7 team will probably win the division again.

Meriweather seems like he is a Sean Taylor want a bee. Didn't we have another ST wat a bee. Either sit RG on the bench or take off the cuffs and brace.
