    Greg Manusky Why Isn't He Fired Yet?

    Exactly! The skins are thinking backwards. They are focused on "Not giving up the big play" and they dont do many blitz's, stunts, etc. Logic being we will drop people into coverage to stop the big play and "We have to do this because of injuries and young". its backwards thinking. Give almost any NFL QB enough time and he will pick a defense apart. EVEN if you stop the big plays (Which somehow - we still don't) - You have the other teams offense controlling the clock and just marching down the field. Its backwards! Send the house. If your talent in week or new in the Defense backfield -Send more! Look - Ideally you stop the run cold but crowding the line. You rush the QB so he is never comfortable. On the long plays where guys are open deep the goal is to not give the QB enough time to see them open, set their feet, and get the ball downfield. Worse case -you give up the big play - but then the defense is off the field again, can rest / recover - and the offense has the ball back. Id RATHER take my chances and the the other team score 4 TD's from 40+ yards plays in a bunch of 2 min drive and then tell our offense to control the clock and score the last TD - Then for the other team to take these 8,9 even 10 mins drives, tire our defense out, watch our offense get cold, and score 4 TD's and leave not enough time on the clock to come back. Its backwards to think you need to drop more people in coverage to help- RUSH the QB and throw him off his game.
  2. My issue is not that players get injured (well -Maybe to a bit it is). but its how Redskins players are the only ones that done get better. I havent checked every team - but looking at weekly injury lists for at least all the NFC east teams- the status of players on the injured list either stay the same, or 1/4 to 1/3 on the list get better as the week goes on. For the Redskins -Whatever you are listed on Wednesday practice- will be the highest you are for the week (including game day). No one seems to improve.
  3. From Todays (9/16) presser. Jon Allen will do individual drills Wed. Moreau will be doing individual drills and is close. Dunbar was "Not as close as we thought he would be".

    Guice Injury and Med staff

    I posted this in the injury thread. But it applies. So for reference - Redskins have 8 players on the injured list all week. 5 of them didn't practice at all 1 was upgraded all week (Nicholson went from Did not practice on Wed, to limited practice). Meanwhile Dunbar went from limited practice on Wed, to did not practice Thursday, and Reed went from LImited practice Wed and Thur to did not practice Friday. So 2 players were downgraded as week went on. As a compression - Cowboys have 12 players on the injured list. 2 of them didnt practice all week. 4 of them got upgraded during the week. None of them got worse as the week went on. I looked other teams as well Eagles - 5 players on injured report. 2 did not practice all week. 2 got upgraded as week went on, no one got worse Giants = 7 players on Injured report. 3 did not practice all week. 4 were upgraded during the week. No one was downgraded Maybe the injuries just happen, but it seems only in Redskins world does no one get better and people get worse as time goes by.
  5. Allen out . Reed - Out Guice and Brantley Injured Reserve. Moreau - Doubtful. Dunbar / Nicholson - Questionable. So for reference - Redskins have 8 players on the injured list all week. 5 of them didn't practice at all 1 was upgraded all week (Nicholson went from Did not practice on Wed, to limited practice). Meanwhile Dunbar went from limited practice on Wed, to did not practice Thursday, and Reed went from limited practice Wed and Thursday to Did not practice on friday. So 1 player out of 8 got better -2 got worse. As a compression - Cowboys have 12 players on the injured list. 2 of them didnt practice all week. 4 of them got upgraded during the week.

  6. Naa -Since we went to his own Dr (Andrews) in FL and got minor surgery -he will be back in 6-8 weeks. IF he didnt go - Skins staff clears him. He prob sits this week - Plays next week after being cleared by skins trainers. Gets hurt worse and ends up on IR. I
  7. I think the skins are worse then rest..HOWEVER - I do agree that its a problem overall. Now -the biggest reason is better tests. Lets be honest -Concussions prob happened more in the 80's then now - but at that point it was just called "Got your bell rung" and you went back out there. Also - You didnt have MCL sprains -You had "Stretched ligament" and were back in a week. MRI's didnt really become a normal thing until the late 80's / early 90's. So yes - that is prob MOST of it. BUT - The other part I think is the year round training. Mini camp starts in may? OTA's start before that. NFL players use to stop playing from Jan / Feb - until June. No many trained year round. I am a HUGE believer that the body needs to rest. REAL recovery. Like Lay on a beach and do NOTHING for a while. I think year round conditioning, training, etc puts a strain on these bodies that result in higher injuries.
  8. Updates put in OP Agreed. This shouldn't just be about the terrible training staff. I think just posting up to date injuries so we can keep up to date. The fact that it will show how bad the training staff is in everything (ESP rehab) is just a side effect.
  9. Update on 9/11 Jonathan Allen got a 2nd opinion - Crazy that he decided our award winning medical team might not be the best huh. The 2nd opinion offered him better news. He may be back this week even. I hope EVERY PLAYER who gets hurt the next day goes and gets a 2nd opinion. At this point -i would trust the nurse that is staffing the minute clinic at my local CVS over any team medical staff personal.
  10. I don't know, I'm not a trainer. Maybe nothing But when your team leads the league in injuries 2 years In a row, and then you have 5 or 6 starters missing week 2..WEEK 2.. you have to start to accept it's not just bad luck
  11. I looked and didn't see a thread like this. I was hoping to have a thread as a single place to look for latest status of Injuries. Focused on the Key players Derrius Guice - Minor surgery from Dr Andrews. Out 6-8 weeks. Jonathan Allen - "Week to week" but doubtful for week 2 as of 9/10 . 9/12 - Gruden waiting for 2nd opinion. 9/13 - DID not practice Thursday. Doubtful for Sunday *Side note- I again think every player should go to their own dr the day after a injury. For BOTH these players the 2nd opinion was more optimistic and seemed to be their own recovery plan. I am reading between the lines but in Grudens press conference when asked he had body language of just not knowing due to team Drs not being involved. For both players he said something like "We are just waiting for the full recovery plan and timeline for the other opinions". Jordon Reed - Gruden "Optimistic" - Listed as questionable. 9/12 - Limited in practice. But points to actually being able to play. Update 9/13 - Limited practice for 2nd day in a row. Colt McCoy - He should be back in 2 or 3 weeks....oh wait. That was the training staffs update when he first got hurt last year. Hes still out. 9/12 -NO progress. Man - Those "2 or 3 weeks" sure seem to be dragging. Fabian Moreau - Questionable for week 2. This is a injury that was suppose to be days, not weeks. 9/12 - Was limited in practice. Still listed as questionable. 9/13 - Limited practice. NEW Quinton Dunbar and Montae Nicholson - Questionable for Sunday. Nicholson did not practice and Dunbar had limited practice. Stroman waived with injury settlement after not really being discussed and injured most of the off-season Update on above -Nicholson did not practice and Dunbar was limited practice. Did I miss anyone? I have a hard time understanding why the injury bug hits the Redskins harder then almost any other team in the league while we have a award winning training staff?

    Next Day Thread: Redskins vs. Eagles

    The rule did change in 2016. You are both right. http://www.footballzebras.com/2016/08/rule-loophole-closed-on-out-of-bounds-receivers/ If he went out on his own, and didn't re-establish himself in bounds -its incomplete no matter what happens next, and no penalty. If he went out on his own, DID re-establish himself and was first to touch it - penalty. if he went out of bounds on his own, re-established himself, and wasn't the 1st one to touch it -its a completion. Since no flag was thrown and no TD given - it means that the refs decided that EITHER he never re-established himself in bounds - so its incomplete. OR - that he re-established himself in bounds but caught the ball out of bounds. The call on the field was NOT that he touched it first -otherwise it would be a penalty.

    Next Day Thread: Redskins vs. Eagles

    Gruden is one of the best offensive coaches in the world - when given days. He game plans better then anyone else and can really take advantage of our strengths and hide our weakness. When games start our offense ussally moves the ball well - the only thing that stops us in the 1st qtr is poor play or penalties. Having said that -He cant make ANY adjustments! How many years in a row have we been blown out in the 3rd qtr? Other teams make adjustments and we don't. And then -whats even worse and has ALWAYS bothered me -is he gives up. If we are down by more then 8 points with less then 5 mins left -we give up. Either we just run the ball, or throw short passes. Even yesterday - 3mins left and we put together a long drive that took 3 mins. At that point - Try to force the long pass. Going 3 and out would be better. Look -I know at this points the odds of winning are SOOO small - But 1 - you do it on the off chance you win (Down 13-0 to the cowboys with 4 mins left in 2005, Skins win. Up by 15 against the saints a few years ago with about 2mins left -And they win. Comebacks DO happen). But more importantly -It sends a message. We will play to try to win this game until the last whistle blows. Gruden sends a message of "Oh well". The team plays with no urgency and gives up quickly - They reflect Gruden.
  14. So I have a bunch (and I do mean a BUNCH ) Nationals tickets that I can not re-sell for all remaining games except 9/14. Most are club level seats. I need 2 or 4 tickets (Lower level or Club level) for Skins / Patriots game. Offering a trade of up to 4 - 1, depending on the seats. So for instance - 8 Nats tickets seats for 2 Skins / Patriots seats. Doesn't even have to be same game. Example - 4 club tickets to Phiilies game and 4 to Indians game for 2 Skins /Patriots tickets. (Again - depending on seats). Let me know if anyone is interested.
