Re: Randy Thomas

Did anyone think that the Thomas injury when he was getting carted off was one of the coolest freaking things you ever saw? When they were wheeling him off the feild and the crowd was going crazy and Thomas was going nuts with them. I was getting chills I thought it was so cool

Re: Randy Thomas

I guess better a broken ankle than a blown out knee. He'll be back stronger than ever next year!

Re: Randy Thomas

This is a big blow to the running game, specifically any plays that involved Thomas pulling because he is so good at it.

There's some great locker room interviews, Cooley was classic too!

Yeah, gotta love Thomas, he seems like a really cool dude.

Re: Randy Thomas' Ankle Injury

Thomas is a great blow to us. BUt no team makes it without injuries--that's the NFL. Now we'll see if "father time" can still do it. He'll be a lot better at guard than at tackle, IMO, so we'll see.

What I loved was the chemistry displayed when Thomas went down. This team is a family. My guess is that Randy's injury will seriously motivate the team.

Re: Randy Thomas' Ankle Injury

did you see the love showed by the fans at the stadium? i was right there chanting with them for Randy. i have to say the Redskins must be the most loved team in football, how else could you explain the biggest revenues, and biggest waiting list at the biggest stadium through all those terrible seasons.

Re: Randy Thomas' Ankle Injury

Randy Thomas is a Hog, man. He's worthy of consideration for the Hall of Hog. What a great, tough, team guy.

We're going to miss him a lot though. Ray Brown doesn't have nearly the same mobility. All those stretch sweeps that Portis likes to run are now out of the playbook to that side of the field. I guess we can try to run them behind Dockery, he's going to have to step up. Ray Brown just can't pull like that.

I feel fine about Brown in pass protection at guard. He can hold his own against the DTs in the interior. It's run blocking I'm worried about. Gibbs is going to have to get creative and redesign some Xs and Os to get Portis into space.

BIG blow to our team.

Re: Randy Thomas' Ankle Injury

Just to clarify, RT broke his fibula (one of the 2 lower leg bones) not his ankle. No matter, its still a big loss.

Re: Randy Thomas' Ankle Injury

I'm glad guys on this site are paying attention to this injury...it really put a damper on the first game I'd attended since '98. As others have said, Thomas was the best pulling guard we have and maybe the best O-Lineman at least this year. If anyone thinks that offensive linemen don't matter just remember back to the 1999 playoffs when we played Tampa Bay. Andy Heck was hurt and couldn't go at LT and his replacement (whose name escapes me at the moment) was absolutely manhandled all night long. Brad Johnson couldn't get any time to go down field and I am still convinced that if Heck was healthy we would have played St. Louis in the NFC Championship. Everyone remembers Dan Turk's bad snap, but on the play before that Johnson was sacked by the DE going against our LT. That made for a longer kick and maybe more pressure on the snap. Luckily Ray Brown is a better back up then whoever replaced Andy, but I don't think he moves nearly as well as Thomas. Huge game against the Giants next week, though, and hopefully Ray Brown can step up once again...Skins control their own destiny...you can't ask for much more than that (except maybe wins against the Raiders, Chargers, and Bucs...how great would that have been...should have won all three of those...oh well).

Re: Randy Thomas' Ankle Injury

Anyone know how Rivera is doing? That was a nasty fall on his neck. I don't wish that on anyone - even the Cowgirls.
