      In today's Divisional Debacle, the Defense under Greg Manusky in the first half, gave up 207 yards of offense (105 rushing/102 passing) and two touchdowns.  That said, they did manage a single INT on which the Offense actually managed to score a touchdown off of. They allowed 12 of 16 passes to be completed . 
       
      In the second half it was 107 yards given up (58 rushing//49 passing) a field goal and a touchdown. They traded their first half pick for a second half sack. However, Dallas completed all five of their pass attempts. 
       
      Don't read that thinking "Well it seems like they tightened up some in the 2nd half."  They didn't. They simply had about half the plays in the second half. 30 plays in the First and 18 in the Second.
       
      So far in two Divisional matchups, the Defense has faltered in the Second half. They start out like a house of fire for the first few drives until their opponents gradually make adjustments. This Defensive coaching staff fails make any adjustments, whether in game or at the very least at Halftime. They've given up over 30 points per game for a total of 63 points given up in two games. While the Bears are up next, the Pats await and they've put up over 70 points in two games. Yeah. Ok. They did shut out the Dolphins today which is looking like the NFL version of ... ahem... shooting fish in a barrel. 
       
      The frustrating thing is Manusky is the DC that the Front Office actively looked to replace during the off season without firing him. When you know they're looking to replace you, most people would make a concentrated effort to show an improvement. Yet Manusky's Defense still keeps acting like it's starring in Groundhog Day.
       
      In his post game presser, when asked directly about if any coaching changes would be made, Gruden said "No, I think after two games – you’re talking about playing two very good offensive football teams and two of the best offensive lines in pro football we just played back-to-back. That’s no excuse whatsoever, but I don’t think we need to hit the panic button yet. We just have to continue to focus on what we can do better to win. Get Jonathan [Allen] in here, get a couple of our corners back in here and let’s go back and strap it up against Chicago [Bears] next week and see what happens.” 
       
      Here's another frustrating thing. The defensive communication was an issue last season as well. Wasn't this supposed to have been worked on during OTA's and Training Camp? It's understandable that the rookies would still be on a learning curve, but NFL vets like Collins and DRC you'd think they would have down by the start of the season. 
       
      Gruden said they're a very talented group on Defense but that they weren't reaching them. When questioned as to why the coaching staff that has been in place for several years, wasn't reaching them, he defended the comment as them being a young defense. “We have some moving parts now. Landon Collins is a veteran guy but this is his first year, [Montez] Sweat’s in his first year, [Cole] Holcomb, it’s his first year, [Jon] Bostic is in his first year. We’re playing Dominique [Rodgers-Cromartie] at corner and this is Jimmy Moreland’s first year, so it’s not like we are the most experienced group. We feel like were very talented, but we`re still fighting through somethings. There are a lot of things to look forward to, without a doubt, but we do have to play better and strap it up and get back to work."

Hopefully we will hear some updates on Quinn and Sims soon. Fingers crossed

So basically high ankle sprains and they will let us know if surgery is required.

More interested in Harris, to be honest. If he's available, then you're looking at a ST problem. If he's not, you need a 4th WR who can play WR.

 

I think we're going to have a @TK thread here soon "Redskins Make Roster Move" saying they IRed Quinn and re-signed Quick to the 53 man roster.  

 

Question will be, who's the punt returner...

 

Perhaps Bibbs will be called up?

I get that, but IF Quinn is out for an extended time, do we really have a good option to replace Crowder if he also gets injured? And Crowder is one of our 3 WRs left standing, so my risk averse personna is coming out. We could put Bibbs on active with a demotion to Samaje, that would still leave 2 WR spots open if such a move is necessary.

Hmm... You mean like move Samaje to PS? Can you even do that while he's injured?  Feel you on not risking Crowder, think our hand is getting forced on that one.

I suspect they dont have a backup PR after Crowder.  They'll get somebody who can at least just field the punt essentially and not have it rolling around.  Unless it was a long term thing.

Doesn't Greg Stroman return kicks?

I'd like to get Stroman more involved. I have a good feeling about his Redskins' future, and he looks like he can contribute a bit year 1.

Sims to IR:

It was reported earlier today that Brian Quick was re-signing with the Redskins. The veteran was cut last week so Washington could keep two rookie receivers, Trey Quinn and Cam Sims.

Unfortunately both of the rooks suffered high ankle sprains in Sunday's win over the Cardinals and were carted to the locker room. They both got MRIs today, and we have been waiting to hear the severity of their injuries.

With the news of the Quick signing, it was expected that one or both of them were going to miss some time and possibly need to be placed on IR. Craig Hoffman reports that Cam Sims will be placed on IR, and will be replaced by Quick on the roster.

Trey Quin to IR as well...

 

 

 

Maybe we shouldn't play rookie WRs?  Harris wasn't on the original 53 in his rookie year but two in one game?

We definitely have a rookie WR problem. Doctson too didn't play but two games (I think) of his rookie campaign.

Wow, brutal injuries continue for this team....Next year we'll have 3 rookies from this year and next years draft class all in their first year. Here's hoping Guice, Sims and Quinn all get healthy and are ready to roll next year.

Since Harris is still in concussion protocol, I'm guessing we're going to elevate Simmie Cobbs Jr. from the practice squad to replace Quinn.  Has anyone heard who will replace Quinn on the 53 man roster?

Skins new Recovery Center.

 

Mason Foster was on Galdi's show this morning and they talked about the Skins new Recovery Center that just opened up a few months ago. The Recovery Center has cryo therapy and weightless pools and im sure some other things.

 

He said before, players would have to travel all over DC to get particular treatments at particular places.

------------------

 

Murphy, 27, then began discussing the recovery center and its inception.

 

He said that after a loss last season when the injuries were mounting, he approached team president Bruce Allen to find out what could be done for the players to control and minimize what appeared to have become an epidemic.

A staff meeting was immediately called to discuss what could be done to help the players. It was then that the idea of a recovery center was conceived.

Murphy traveled with team officials to Indianapolis during this past NFL Combine to further investigate their vision. He went to a seminar at Liberty University to learn more about the project.

 

The OLB elaborated on how he was blown away after meeting former Navy seal Jeff Nichols, whom he described as ‘one of the brightest people I have ever met in my life.’

 

Murphy also gave credit to former Redskins dietician Robert Skinner, who is a performance dietician and exercise physiologist. Skinner has worked with several NFL athletes and Navy SEALs for Naval Special Warfare.

If it saves players time and effort, more will use it then.  You have to think that reducing the nagging injuries from getting worse will help the players avoid getting into spots where the serious injuries can occur.

I think the report(s) just said he was out of practice on Friday, not ruled out for the game.  Granted, that does not bode well for his chances of playing.  He is becoming quite the frustrating player, to me at least.  If I read the links incorrectly, I apologize.  Doc needs to get on the field and produce in short order or he will not have many suitors when he becomes a free agent.  WR needs to be prioritized in our next draft.  Hail
