  1. The Redskins know Shanahan playbook, but it doesn't matter. They never had a QB to get to page 4
  2. Child please. 23 points from your offense? C'Mon get real Falcons will hang 28 points or more
  3. One thing that probably goes unnoticed is the fact Wade Harman, the TE coach is good at developing TE's. He did it while he was in Baltimore. Harman was our asst. OL coach last year, but his strength is working with the TE group. The position that normally strives in Shanahan system. but to get back on topic the ZBS is good fit for a TE like Toilolo.
  4. Shuler will probably end up sticking even when Tamme returns as the 3rd TE and special team player
  5. Before the season started I predicted 12-4. I thought the 4 losses would come somewhere at the beginning of the season due to chemistry, but now that they are coming together and balling I have to say 14-2 and the two losses will come at the end of the season when we rest our starters.
  6. Cool. I was just reminded from my mother-in-law who is from Maryland that the last time we started the season undefeated and we faced her Redskins we were 4-0 heading into that game (2012 NFCCG season). Although the game was played in DC I remember my wife family coming down to our house Columbus Day weekend to watch the game. They were claiming the Redskins was going to be the first team to knock off the Falcons with RG3. lol...we won of course and eventually went on to sweep the rest of the NFC East teams. We have a chance to be undefeated again (4-0) when we play them again Columbus Day weekend and they want my wife to convince me to come to Maryland for the Redskins-Falcons tailgate party her Uncle is having. I know we are better than the Reskins but I don't want to jinx us.
  7. I'm watching the game now. Cowboys are missing their LG this game. Will see who Romo target
  8. Thank you. I was thinking the same da.. thing as I was reading this. Vaughn continues to live in the past.
  9. Good thing for Person is that he has some familiarity with the ZBS from his time in Seattle. Changing from one position to another does take time, especially the center position where that player is responsible for knowing and calling out the D, so the oline can be in sync. Like someone mentioned, with more reps the more experience Person will get. If everyone stays healthy the line should start to really gel by week 7. As for Gino I think he remains a backup, unless he outperforms Person in practice.
  10. This same thread was already mentioned when Coleman was drafted
  11. I expect him to be better with more time here. He is the only one on the O-line who had to learn the playbook in a few days.
  12. The game D Hall thought he shut T.O. down, but T.O. still had multiple receptions for over 100 yards.
  13. I wouldn't have a issue signing him after his contract is not guaranteed. This way he can really earn his due. Win-win situation, if he plays well then he gets paid and we get a decent player. If he doesn't we cut him.
  14. It would be. He could sign a 4M dollar deal, but the beauty of this is if he gets cut we are not on the hook
  15. Good post. You had a typo though. It should be 3 Tech DT for Hag-Bab-GJ
  16. That goes to show you how weak Shippensburg strength and conditioning program was. Grimes has a 40" vertical now. Allen 37" vert is still impressive
  17. This signing makes our draft that much better. What we instantly get in Chester that we wouldnt have gotten with a mid to late draftee is his knowledge of our system. Chester doesn't have to worry about everything a rookie has too. He can just go out and play and play fast while he's at it.
  18. I have to agree slightly with the OP in that Polumbus sucks. Being that my wife is from Maryland and all her family are die hard Redskins fans I seen him play plenty. Schraeder only challenge for the starting RT position would be a healthy Baker, but that competition won't last long. I'm no fan of Holmes either. Any time you have to split carry with another player (Carimi) during a game you don't deserve to start.
  19. Here are all the starting Left Guards that played underneath Kyle Shanahan since he became an OC in 2008. 1. Chester Pitts, 6-4 308 (2008 Houston Texans)(2002 2nd round #50 pick San Diego State Univ) was already a starter when Kyle took over OC. 2. Kasey Studdard, 6-3 304 (2009 Houston Texans)(2007 6th round #183 pick Texas Longhorns) was a backup LG for two full seasons before getting an opportunity due to Chester Pitts injury. 3. Derrick Dockery, 6-6 325 (2010 2 games Washington Redskins)(2003 3rd round #81 pick Texas Longhorns) was already a starter when Kyle joined his daddy in Washington. The Redskins have benched LG Derrick Dockery in favor of Kory Lichtensteiger. Dockery is a power blocker and not a great fit for Mike Shanahan's zone scheme, so it's not surprising that he lost his job. He's probably on the trade block. Lichtensteiger is more athletic. The Skins racked up a season-high 116 rushing yards Sunday and allowed one sack, so the change may stick. Source: Washington Post The Skins could've saved themselves $2.9 million by releasing Dockery before Week 1, but didn't have enough foresight to know he was a poor fit for their zone-blocking scheme. Sunday marked Dockery's first missed game in his eight-year career. Kory Lichtensteiger is now the starting left guard.4. Kory Lichtensteiger, 6-2 296 (2010-2013 Washington Redskins)(Denver Broncos 2008 4th round #108 pick Bowling Green) was drafted by Mike Shanahan in Denver. Didn't play his rookie season and was cut by Josh McDaniel in 2009 and was not in the league during that year. After a year out of the league, he signed with Mike Shanahan when he became the Redskins coach. He played center in college and ended up putting on weight last year and played center for Jay Gruden. 5. Joel Bitonio, 6-4 302 (2014 Cleveland Browns)(2014 2nd round #35 pick Nevada) was drafted by Cleveland during Kyle tenure with team. 6. ????????, ??? ??? (2015 -???? Atlanta Falcons) It will be competition, but Mike Person seems like the early favorite to start. 49ers selected Montana G/C Mike Person with the No. 239 overall pick in the 2011 NFL draft. Person, who goes 6-foot-4, 299, was D-IAA powerhouse Montana's starting left tackle last season and didn't allow a single sack all year, earning consensus first-team FCS All-American honors. Somewhat unfortunately, his arms are just under 32 inches, meaning he'll have to play guard (probably left guard) to stick in the pros. He finished his career with 48 straight starts.
