  1. Reed looks like he might be practicing a new TD dance... Luck is what scares me. In the San Fran game last year, the difference between us winning 26-10 and them winning 26-27 was only 4 plays (well, one of them was a V. Davis fumble). I am worried that Luck himself might be good enough to get those 4 plays.

    Redskins vs Colts Prediction Thread: Will the Redskins "Luck" Out?

    So, he is saying that the Cards must have had around -28 yards rushing in over the final three quarters?

    Desperation time is when you are down by two touchdowns with less than 4 minutes. The 49ers were down by 14 with 3:28 remaining and 75 yards. That is desperation time. You may be confusing desperation time with junk time. 26-17, was confusing it with the Rams game but still down by two possessions needing two scores is desperation, Especially given the fact that they onside kicked it after the TD.
  4. Yep, kind of like most airlines do something similar. You don't have to be connected to the internet. Download it before you get there and save it locally.

    We were 12 point favorites. We might have covered that if we don't give up a 45 yard touchdown in desperation time to an opponent two TDs down.

    Well, we play in Maryland but Redskins Park is in Virginia. So, maybe home means there? So, it looks to me that the Cowboys most likely win the NFC east. The last time the Redskins won the east, my confidence in even having a winning season was near 0 at this point.

    Redskins receiving corp is beginning to shape up

    From Gruden's perspective, getting to put Sims on regular season IR and having Quick still available might be sort of blessing in disguise. Not personally sure of this, but I understand that Gruden considers Quick an excellent special teams guy and an adequate 4 or 5 while Sims was an unproven 5 (loads of potential maybe good enough to claw his way up) and an adequate teams guy. If he wants to be that run first team and being certain we can replace Crowder, Trey Quinn looks to be the guy that we'd miss (though I've never seen anything that would cast doubt on to Sims blocking ability).

    Is this the best Defensive Front we've had in years?

    If you don't think the Raiders are rebuilding, you don't even have anything worthwhile.

    If I am the Raiders, I much prefer what I got over Preston Smith and a first unless I thought Smith was much better than Mack. Raiders look to be in a rebuild mode. Factoring in injuries, offense and teams performance, our defense was better than the Raiders last year. If I am the Redskins, I'd prefer the same possibility to extend P. Smith plus my first. Remember, if someone is willing to over pay for Preston (offer more than us), we will still likely get something and we will still have our first. We need to have faith in our own ability to find and develop our own guys, especially when after 4 years, good ones often become too expensive to keep. Mack might have been an improvement but he would not have been that much of an improvement that we would be better off without next years number one and the possibility to extend Preston if desired. If we have no plans to extend Preston, I don't think we'd have wanted to pay Mack what he got.

    No, Preston's last name is Smith. Sorry if I confused you, I tend to use last names. That is who I was referring to.

    That if all we had to give them was Smith, that would telegraph that Smith is at least a Mack equal. In fact, the extension issue makes that even more clear.

    If we could have gotten Mack for Smith straight up, no way we should have done that. Mack would be just chasing the wave again.

    Well, the only bust offensive lineman we've taken in round 1 (in my lifetime but the sample if small, just 5) was one taken at the end of the first (although he was a tackle). We have never taken a true guard in the first (May and Scherff did end up there as rookies though). After 1 game, the only positions that would surprise and upset me are QB, RB and DL. Hopefully by end-of-season, we also are not looking at DB or WR. OL picks NEVER upset me.

    Chris Thompson, the Redskins most important player

    I would add that in re-watching the game, I saw the Cards miss a whole lot of tackles that would have stopped several of our drives,
