-- Which is the toughest division? Adam Schefter, Gil Brandt (who is correct), and Blowhole Esiason say it's the East. Rod Woodson gives us half a vote tied with the AFC North. Sound off Boomer!
Golly thanks for giving the East their due Boomer, even with Washington at 2-4. But all four teams have good defenses? Who are you kidding?
-- I suggested earlier this week that defensive tackle Joe Salave'a might not play this weekend. Well thankfully maybe I was wrong: Salave'a was upgraded to probable today and looks good for this sunday. We need all the help we can get.
-- Ben over at The Curly R has a brilliant rant about the Skins only rushing 19 times against the then worst rushing defense in the league. New honors go to the Colts. My faith in this team's gameplanning is currently in a bit of a recession, so I'll put the over/under at 18. If we abandon the run with a lead against the Titans, I've got a feeling we won't even find the run (much less abandon it) against the Colts. Pray I'm wrong.
-- Lee Gibbons over at The Redskin Report... is calling for Todd Collins?!? Don't take my word for it and read his entire post, which does have some fair points.
Psssst. Jason Campbell is on this team too.
Well it was one of the best defenses... before you showed up. At least our old free safety Ryan Clark has been stinking it up in Pittsburgh, right? Not exactly. At least he has an interception.
-- Jack Kogod at AOL's The Fanhouse is blaming our woes on the linebackers. While I think our linebackers play has been sub-stellar this year, I'd say the lion's share of blame can be placed elsewhere... like the secondary. Brunell. The above-mentioned 19 rush gameplan against the Titans. Dan Snyder. Karma even? At this point I'm not ruling much out.
In other news I had an epiphany last night where I decided that my true calling is to become a coach. I haven't told my girlfriend yet, though I'm sure she will be thrilled. I need a reader to talk me out of it. Soon.
HTTR and have a great weekend. Cheers.
