Washington Redskins safety Brandon Meriweather faces suspension - ESPN

Well we already knew this. He'll definitely miss the Broncos game, but he may miss the Chargers as well.

Dude deserves it though. Quesiton is who will we throw back there to replace him? Rambo?

Well put. Our team is built to win high scoring games and that's what we did. We all should be happy.

I don't really think it matters who replaces him. Denver is going to score and score a lot. It's going to come down to whether we can keep up with them, and whether we can get a couple turnovers, and maybe another TD from the defense. I believe the defense has scored 4 times this year.

Some of those calls yesterday were just so pathetic. The NFL might as well be a flag football league at this point.

Re: Skins vs Bears postgame

While at 2-4 there's a lot of disappointment to go around, I tend to think that recent trends on offense AND defense are pretty strong (special teams, now that's a widly different story).

Right now, we're yielding up 389 yards a game -- 24th in the league. Yesterday, we gave up 359 yards, and the last two weeks (against the Raiders and against the Cowboys, we did much better). After giving up a zillion yards in the first 3 weeks, our D has improved a good deal. To put it in perspective, if we dropped the average to 359 yards (yeterday's total), we'd be at 18th in the league. While that still isn't anything to brag about, given where we started at two games at about 500 yards, it is real improvement.

And our offense has generated the 4th most yards per game. Yeah, yeah -- I hear folks about the garbage time yards, but yards are yards, and we put up 45 on Chicago. Anytime you put up 45 points on any team in the NFL, you're doing something right.

What has killed us the last few weeks are turnovers and special teams. Special teams has been a killer -- 3 TDs in two weeks. Ugh. That's appalling. And it isn't as though our special teams has generated points; indeed, the most notable thing our teams has done is get a kick blocked by the Raiders. And the turnovers have killed us. We basically gave up a TD to Dallas with one; Chicago scored within 3 plays of the bad pick from RGIII. If, and that is a big if, we clean that up somehow, I think the D is playing well enough -- and the offense is surely playing well enough -- that we can and should rattle off a number of wins from here out. Other than SF, Denver, and the Chiefs, are we really afraid of any other team on our schedule? If we can go the rest of the season losing only to those 3 teams, we will finish 9-7 and that is likely to be enough to win the NFC East.

But we should take this one win at a time. Next up, the Broncos. Let's get after Peyton. The Colts showed how that can work.

Seeing as he was a free agent this past year, I doubt trading him is a option. In fact, even on the open market, he garnered interest from two teams. (us and bills)

It is an option. Or at least they're trying to make it an option.

Too bad Al Davis is gone. He'd give us 3 #1's for Freddy D.

The front of this defense and D Hall - Definitely. Even Riley is playing better, and is a solid contributor.

Now, The other cb and our safeties? - HELL NO. They **** up no matter how good the front seven is playing, even with them getting that advantage, they still can't tackle, have late hits, pass interference calls, get smoked, illegal hits, or completely screw the coverage up.

*This is the biggest reason our record is what it is. If we could at least shore this up A LITTLE, we would be sitting at .500 or better. This is on Haslett and the players, noone else. Well, maybe Shanahan.

I gotta say, as much as I hate the guy, Josh Wilson hasn't been as lost as he has been the past couple of years. I don't see him getting burnt and turned around as often.

Re: Skins vs Bears postgame

Honestly, the safety play has been atrocious all around, and with Fletcher losing a step (it truly pains me to say so as I love the guy), the middle of the field is to be had. And teams have expolited that -- Chicago seemed to work the middle of the field very effectively (think of the Forte 50 yard scamper and the TD pass to Williams). No play up front or even with the CBs (which has been solid) can change that.
