    ...and some players need to adjust to not seeing the field on 1st and 2nd downs.

    At this point I'd say at least give the kid garbage time when it comes on obvious passing downs.

    Again, we have to accept that McClellin is the better choice between he and Washington, if the coaches don't even have him activated.

    Bass has been active and has looked better than Shea in limited reps. And with Paea back, I am assuming Woot will see more time back outside rather than being exclusively a DT. All I'm saying is:

    A) Washington is a run first team. If you can stuff Morris, the RG read option stuff becomes a whole lot less dangerous. He isn't a very good pocket passer at this point in his career (inaccurate, not great at outthinking defenses, etc).
    B) Shea is an enormous liability against the run and Washington knows that.

    No,it means that's what they may believe. It doesn't mean we have to accept it. What if MPbears68 is correct, and Redskins steam-rolling over McClarin on the ground is a big contribution to Skins winning the game? Are you going to just leave him there, or try something different?

    They have C.Washington at #2 now behind Shea. Won't that mean he gets some reps in the rotation, this coming game? Our #2's on the DL are now:

    Cornelius Washington
    Zach Minter
    Landon Cohen
    David Bass

    They activated Franklin for Redskins game, but no word yet on CornWash. He was on inactive list the last two games.

    So you're saying MPbears knows the team better than the coaches. That's heavily implied here.

    Well, then you drew the wrong implication. If you watch football for a few decades, or even a few years, you will see coaches make bad -- I mean really bad -- decisions. They trade future Hall of Fame players early in their careers or draft them in the late rounds (um, Richard Dent). They make fewer mistakes than you or I would, but they (and we) see their mistakes AFTER the guy gets on the field and plays a lot better/worse than they were expecting. Don't get me wrong. I am not predicting that CornWash would not play worse than McClellin. But if McClellin keeps playing poorly, I'm ready to say "Show me!"

    I have watched football for a long time, yet I have to admit, I'm wrong about as much as I'm right about this stuff. Even since I've been on this message board I've had to eat more than my share of crow. I'm the idiot who predicted we'd sweep the Packers this year. I can already see THAT'S going to be another crow meal :(
