ANd best of all, no jamarcus russell. Beating a team near you very soon.
and feel free to discuss whatever team you like or nfl related stuff on here.
McFadden is nowhere as fast as Chris Johnson but I'm happy to see heyward bey and Campbell producing
randy moss cut today. They wasted that 3rd round pick to get him.
Raiders have three of probably the 5 fastest players in the league, Ford, Hayward-bey, and Mcfadden.
I don't trust Jason Campbell. Be happy while it last, but soon, he's going to screw up. I'm a Redskins fan, and during his tenure with the Redskins, he was not good. Countless people in the nation and even in the DMV area were overrating him. He was a starter for the Redskins for 3 & 1/2 seasons, and he didn't produce. Everybody was saying the only reason he wasn't as good as he should've been was because of his O-Line. Bullsh!t! The Redskins O-Line was very bad, but it wasn't solely their fault Campbell didn't produce enough. Usually, Jason had bad protection, but there were a few plays where he had good protection, but he still fuucked up. He would hold the ball too long, had poor field vision, had poor accuracy, and basically NEVER threw deep. One time, an interviewer asked why he never threw deep, and Campbell said "How can I throw deep when everytime I look up, I'm about to get sacked?" Mr. Campbell, it is possible. Just look at Aaron Rodgers. He probably had the worst O-Line last season, but still threw bombs and had a successful season. And on the RARE occasions when Campbell did throw deep, the ball had very poor accuracy. There were sometimes when somebody was wide open deep, but Jason threw the ball with very poor accuracy. Also, Jason Campbell's stats were inflated last season. He had 20 TD's and 15 INT's, which I still think isn't that good, but others that didn't watch him play in Washington would think he had a decent season, but his stats LIE! Most of his passing yards and TD's happened in the final 2 minutes of a game when we had no hope of coming back. So those stats didn't matter.
Al Davis said that he would be the next Jim Plunkett. I've never seen Jim Plunkett play, but I'm guessing he was good. Jason Campbell was OBVIOUSLY not on Jim Plunkett's level during the first few games of the Raiders season. Jason Campbell played TERRIBLE the first few games of the season. I was getting tired of the numerous people that kept on saying during the offseason that Jason Campbell was mistreated in Washington and that he would ressurect the Raiders franchise, but I kep on saying in my head "Dont worry, you will all see." He played bad earlier in the season and that's why he got benched, but lately, he's played pretty well, bu I don't look for that play to keep up and I'm just waiting for him to slip up. He is certainly an upgrade from Jamarcus Rusell, but he is not a franchise QB and I don't think he will ever be a great starter. I would be glad to have him as my 2nd string QB, but I would NEVER start him. He's OK, just not as good as everyody thought he would be this season. Definitely overhyped during the offseason. I don't think he can lead the Raiders to the playoffs.
wizard of oz, jason campbell is just starting while bruce grdkowski is out. The caoch has already said grdakowski will get his job back as soon as he's healthy which is supposed ot be pretty soon. neither of them are franchise qb's but gradkowski is better then campbell. EIther way, the raiders are a poor passing team and rely much more on the running game then anything.
All i can say is I was a life long Denver Broncos fan, well since I was young and John Elway won the 1st of 2 superbowls, im now 18 and I find myself no longer able to cheer for this franchise. Josh Mcdaniels aka mcweasel has gutted this franchise in 2 short yrs. Trade your franchise QB at the age of 25 comin off a pro bowl and 4500 yard game, trade the best wideout in the game, trade scheffler, terrible draft chocies!! tebow? alphonso smith whom he tradded a 1st rounder for to draft him in 2nd round. The man has got to get fired, I will never root for denver again as long as that rat b-itch is there.
GO Cutler and da bears!!!
PLZ GET JAY A FUC-KIN O-LINE!!!! and a &$#%#&@! wideout
I agree kanyedabest. Josh Mcdaniels has done all the wrong things with that franchise. Ever since they've traded Jay Cutler, that franchise has gone DOWNHILL. They're trading all their stars for darft picks they don't even use right. Demaryius Thomas over Dez Bryant, and Tim Tebow in the 1ST ROUND??? C'MON NOW! Tim Tebow is a great person, but I don't think he will ever have a successful NFL career at quaterback. I think he is best served playing a position like fullback or H-Back because of his running ability. He has great intagibles, but too much developmen would be involved to turn him into a franchise quaterback. The only way the Tebow pick will help them with is ticket sales, and he won't help them with anything on the field.
Why trade Jay Cutler? He was coming off a great season where he made it to the Pro Bowl. I enjoyed seeing him throw 4 interceptions on my Washington Redskins, but I believe that kif put in the right system where he has a good O-Line, that he can thrive.
The only thing the Broncos got going for them right now is Brandon Lloyd. Why couldn't he do this on the Redskins???
at least you guys have brandon lloyd in denver doing his thing. ANd who do you guys think is the best wr in football right now? Im leaning towards roddy white of the falcons.
hands down its brandon lloyd right now...but i cant cheer for them cuz of mcweasel
i dont know whats going on in washington. Benching mcnabb for grossman to run the final 2 minute drill was dumb. And now i heard they are giving jamarcus russell a tryout.
Yeah, I don't know what's going on with them either. When Shanahan benched McNabb, I was like "What is he doing???" It was still a winnable game and do you really think that Rex Grossman is a better option than McNabb in the 2-minute offense? First, Shanahan said that he benched McNabb because Grossman knew the system better, then he suddenly changed his argument saying that McNabb did not have the "cardiovascular endurance" to play a 2-minute offense. I'm not buying it. McNabb had been playing the whole game, was constantly eluding defenders in the pocket, and scrambled a lot. He has the second longest scramble in his career in that game and he is no where near as fast as he used to be. If McNabb wasn't in shape to play the final two minutes, why didn't Shanahan just sit him out the whole game? That Detroit game was still a winnable game. The Redskins were only down by six, and they pulled McNabb out. Even if McNabb wasn't in enough shape to run the 2-minute offense, I still think he's a better option than Rex Grossman. McNabb has 24 game-winning drives in his career. Tom Brady has the same amount, and only 3 other current quaterbacks have more game-winning drives. McNabb is a potential Hall of Fame quaterback. Why would Shanahan do this? This whole thing baffles me. I've had Shanahan's back since he's got here in Washington, but as days go by, I'm starting to lose respect for him. He has mishandled to superstars. Albert Haynesworth can still be a dominate DT if used right. He dominated the last two games. And now he is mishandling McNabb? This season has been very UP & DOWN.
Now te questiion is are the Redskins going to sign McNabb to an extension? I think McNabb wants to be here. I heard in an interview that there is a 100% chance he is here next season, but the question is do the Redskins want him? I was always a huge supporter of McNabb and was one of the people pushing for the Skins to get him during the offseason and I was so happy when the Redskins acquires him, but I don't play favorites and if he doesn't help our team very much, then we shouldn't resign him. People are saying that he has been playing bad this season, and I do agree that he has made some inaccurte throws and VERY poor desicions, but he would be playing better if he didn't have a terrible O-Line. The Redskins O-Line is TERRIBLE! The only solid player right now is Williams. Everybody else has played poorly. We acquired former Pro Bowler Jaamal Brown for draft picks, and he has been dissapointing. Maybe it's because he isn' 100% yet, but he just doesn't seem like the same player he used to be. The offensive guards and the Center have all played TERRIBLE. During the Lions game on Sunday, McNabb had basically no time in the pocket on basically every play. I feel that until the Redskins get a good O-Line, then you truly can't judge McNabb.
I think the Redskins need to attempt to get Randy Moss. McNabb has no weapons except for Cooley and Santana Moss. McNabb likes to throw deep and he can't do that if he has no vertical threat. Moss will add eight to this receiving core and will be the perfect deep threat for McNabb.
And the Jamarcus Russell signing, I don't know what that's about. I mean, it can't hurt. Russell is still young, so he has some potential, and he is hungry for redemption. We'll see how this plays out.
Being from DC naturally I'm a ............Ravens fan hahahahah Ray Lewis best mlb ever Ed Reed best saftey in the NFL I dont hate the redskins but i just dont like snyder at all......But I actually think we can win it all Ed Reed coming back healthy, Flacco and Boldin are clicking, three headed running back, and a top 5 defense any thoughts
I can't balme you for being a Ravens fan. The Ravens are my 2nd favorite team behind the Skins. I think they can make a deep run in the playoffs.
I agree about Snyder. This team is one of the most historic franchises in NFL history, but Snyder has turned this franchise into a laughing stock. High-priced, washed up free agents and silly trades are still the norm, and Snyder cant swallow his big ego and overhaul this roster. This teams is far too old and depleted on the offensive line to compete for a Super Bowl. The Redskins need to stop trading draft picks, overpaying free agents, and rebuild. At least Cerrato is gone.
Campbell is not good, but the Redskins didn't exactly put him in a position to suceed either. In every year he was in Washington he had to learn a new sets of plays and a new offense, because of Daniel Snyder and all the coaches he had to hire and fire. The fact that he never improved his throwing mechanics is what hurt him the most, becasue he telegraphs every single pass he throws. There's a reason he got tons of passes blocked and knocked down.
@Wizards of Oz, when I looked in the paper and saw the kind of stats that Brandon Lloyd is putting up, I had the same reaction.....
When I remember Tony banks Jeff George Deion sanders smh
titans have claimed randy moss off waivers. What do you guys think? Having watched him absolutely quit on my raiders in the past, im glad to see they didnt make a move for him.
todays the day. Raiders gonna own. And i need my fantasy team to get it done as well. I got:
ben roethlisberger qb, roddy white wr, steve smith(car) wr, rashard mendenhall rb, michael turner rb, raiders defense/spt, niel rackers k, dustin keller te
I also own brandon lloyd, knowshon moreno, rob bironas, eagles d/spt, matt ryan, zach miller all on my bench this week. Im currently in second in a twelve team league and need to catch up to first.
Anyone else think that Green Bay would be incredible if they were healthy? This season alone, starting runningback (Grant), best pass catcher (Finley), around 4 LB's are hurt including 2 starters, starting safety just activated for the first time last week (Bigby), backup safety hurt, Driver hurt, 2 starters on the O-Line have missed multiple games, the D-Line has missed a starter or more nearly every game with one suspended for the year (Jolly), and missing Al Harris (who should never have been cut). I know for at least a few games this year they have been 7+ starters down and won. At full health next year they could be amazing.
yeah, green bay will be scary if they had a healthy squad. They have a very solid defense and rodgers is a top 5 qb. Greg jennings is really getting it going right now at wr for them.
So who do you guys like for the super bowl? In the NFC, i think philly and atlanta might meet up to decide the winner. And in the AFC, Pitt, Tennessee and indiana are all dangerous.
And as ofr my raiders. They got a perfectly timed bye this coming week. Their top two recievers (louis murphy and zach miller) both missed last game and will get healthy as well as their top defender in nnamdi asomugha. Coming out of the bye in week 11 they will get to face the steelers on the road so we wil see what they are really all about.
riaders are in first in the afc west. They have a tough schedule coming down the stretch though and both san diego and denver have the offensive weapons to tak ethe division. We'll have a better idea of how legit the raiders are next week when they go on the road to play pittsburgh.
And how about mcnabb getting a big 5 year 78 mill extension today in washington? And I need my eagles to absolutely shutdown the redskins tonight for my fantasy league.
