You know ... I can't help but wonder, after reading this post, what the knock on Santana is for! Let's flip the coin for a minute. Santana Moss has been, without a doubt, the most covered wide receiver for the Redskins in past years. He can't catch a cold for all the defenders around him! And who has been the clutch receiver for the Redskins over this time? Granted, Chris Cooley is great, and Antwan Randel El has been a steady receiver, but when the chips are down, the "Go To" guy in crucial game situations has been Santana Moss. That's right,#89! And he has single handedly beaten teams with pure skill and guts! Something that many of our guys, sorry to say, show a definite lack of! So, let's get the record straight here! Santana Moss is an elite receiver, and if some of these other younger players will be able to contribute, Santana will show you why he's elite!
Don't worry Santana, I've got your back!

He cant catch period with that joke of a QB throwing to him. He should demand a trade.

Seriously? You guys are going to ride Jason Campbell? I'm not saying that he was or is the greatest QB ever, but, how many hall of fame QB's has washington had? People put a little to much blame in the QB. I'm sure it had nothing to do with poor special teams, portis going down, a banged up o-line, or having crappy starts all season. Com'mon, Last year he gave up zero ints. in the first eight games and i bet you guys were riding his pecans then but when the injuries hit for the skins' and teams weren't having to put seven/eight in the box agianst them.(and still pressured the backfield every play.)who is going to do great against those odds. Even peyton and eli struggle with no running game going and sub-par blocking.

Sorry this reply is so late, but your analysis of J.C. is correct! I can tell by Oakland's sparkling start this season!
But now we have Donovan, the O line is improving a bit, and the kid is starting to look like a legitimate down-field threat! I'm happy to see A. A. starting opposite "Tana-man," because he can get you some yards in a hurry! We need a little more patience though. This defense will work, once they get accustomed to how it operates, and hopefully we'll pick up #56 from the Chargers to help our pass rushing system!
Thanks for your input!

Hey Big Clark ~ Sorry this reply is late. Trouble with my P/C. But that aside, we never wanted to ride the "Campbell Train," it just sort of happened, ya' know? We now have a legitimate QB in Donovan McNabb, and by next season, the Redskins will be reaping the benefits of "Club Shanahan!" As to your other observations ... The Redskins have never had "Poor" Special teams play. Sometimes not up to par, I'll grant you, but "Poor," NEVER! Our O-line is improving a bit, and I'm very proud of the way Trent Williams is coming along! a few lucky breaks, and the Redskins will soon have an O-line that's a force to be reckoned with! The Portis situation is pretty much the same, only this year, we have a young guy named Torain! Make note of that name ... It'll be mentioned alot in the coming weeks by those in the know in the NFL! I appreciate that you're probably not a Redskins fan, and you're entitled to your opinion. After all, that's a freedom I fought for in Viet Nam for you to have! I thank you for reading my article, and I hope you'll continue to do so. But be aware ... I'm a die-hard Redskin fan, so I follow them religiously. I know what they've done, and where they've been. And I know where they're going as well! So, get used to it ... The Redskins are BACK!!!

My friend ... To say the Skins suck, and call yourself a fan is to say you like sardine and peanut butter sandwiches! They just don't go together! I, am a die-hard, died-in-the-wool, always have been, always will be, Redskins fan! True, sometimes they're very disappointing, and that started in the front office. But "The Danny" has done some very good, positive things here recently. Getting rid of Cerrato was monumental! Hiring Bruce Allen, a football guy, and most-of-all, a legacy of Redskins glory days, was fantastic! The hiring of Mike "no nonsense" Shanahan as Exec. V. P. in charge of football operations, and Head Coach, was about as gutsy a move I've seen Mr. Snyder make, since he fired a pretty fair Coach in Marty Schottenheimer!(Forgive me Marty, if I misspelled the last name!)
I don't know if you've been paying attention, but the Redskins organization is making wholesale changes in their football operations. From the front office, to the water boy, newer, and better fitting pieces are being strategically placed this season! As for the team itself ... Trent Williams at left tackle has been a beast for the most part. Ryan Torain looks like a legitimate replacement for C. P. at RB, "O Sackpo" is maintaining his superiority over opposing linemen. As the saying goes around here ... Everyone feels Brian wasn't held enough as a baby! And LaRon Landry, old "Dirty 30" himself, since getting back to his original position at SS, he has been a true predator! He's become one of the most feared Safeties in the NFL! Moving back to offense for a minute, how about the addition of this new kid,#13 Anthony Armstrong? That should give defenses a chance to pick their poison. Him, or the "Tana-Man!" One of them is going to beat you long!
As I always say ... You're entitled to your opinion, but don't come around praising the Skins when they start understanding the offensive, and defensive schemes better. And don't forget, we still have options for the draft, and in free agency!
