Btw, on the last play it looked like Taylor Mays knocked out Reggie Nelson. Hope it's not serious, we really can't afford to lose him. Freakin Mays...


Joe Reedy tweeted that Nelson ran to the bus after the game. So probably good to go.

BTW- I'm asking every opponents' fans. What were your impressions of RG3?


He runs like Cam, but throws much better than him. He has good anticipation when his line gives him time. Hell of an arm. I was really glad when the Bengals hit him hard late in the game. It forced the Skins to go away from the pistol for one play (which i was really tired of seeing).

Only got to watch about 10 min of game time and listened to a little over half the game, but here are my impressions:

•Mo Sanu throws a pretty deep ball
•Dunlap is our defensive MVP no matter what the numbers say.
•Is Harvey still available, because Geathers is worthless
•With our first 3 picks next year, at least 2 of them need to be LB and SS
•Burfict just keeps surprising me, he's been very steady.....so far
•Really like how Binns and Hawkins are coming along, and of course AJ is AJ
•If LB and SS are 2 of thr first 3, RB may need to be the other pick. I like BJGE, and he'd be great as the lower half of a platoon, but he has no wiggle at all. Bernard Scott looks slower to me.
•Dalton looks better every game, we may need to start havng him throw 45-50 times a game.
•Winning record so far, big game against Jacksonville next week, a must win game if they have playoff aspirations.

What's sad, that would be good for 2nd on our team to AJ. Both are playing amazing so far. And I cannot forget how well Binns is playing. He catches with his hands and shows great potential.

Truth is, we got 5 #2's @ WR. Marvin Jones; (probably our best WR in preseason); can't get in the game. Even Sanu can only get on the field as back-up QB. (LOL).

To add to things, even Orson Charles flashed as #2 TE with a good looking 20yd + back shoulder grab.

Air game looking good and deep right now, so long as the protection holds.

Very true. And Jones adds another deep threat. I was very worried about our WR's coming into this year because no one has proven anything (Minus AJ), but not its unreal how many people are stepping up.

Sanu should be our backup, Gradkowski sucks. The throw by Dalton to Charles was a thing of beauty and a hell of a grab. I would love to see him get more PT

What is going on with him? He missed numerous blocks especially on third down and lacking effort. The first quarter it looked like they were trying to get him the ball alot.

Charles needs more looks.

Yeah, I've kind of given up on Gresham. He'll make some great plays for us here and there in the receiving game but he's lacking effort big time. Charles is a 10x better blocker and good enough as a receiver (Plus we have enough receiving targets).

Heck if Donald Lee can get healthy, I wouldn't mind if we traded Gresham and just stuck with Charles and Lee...

Orlovsky has too much experience here. Manziel doesn't stand a chance.

At this rate, we may just let Gresh walk at the end of this year and get a new backup TE in the mid rounds next draft with a vet FA to round out the position.

Definitely want to see Charles get more PT.

I somewhat agree. At this point there is no way he can look for top dollar. I think he has the potential, he clearly just isnt mentally showing up this year. I would hate to waste another 1st round pick. He did make some nice plays down the middle of the field. But he just has issues showing up consistently throughout the games this year.

I won't be giving up on Gresham just yet, but something ain't right with him.

For me, the most telling problem is the false starts. He's probably been responsible for more penalty yards than offensive yards right now. He caught a good TD pass yesterday, so maybe he can get his head on straight.

Plus, with those tough division and NFCE games coming up, were gonna be showing multiple TE sets, so Gresh and Charles will be important to us.

Gresham signed a 5 year deal in 2010. He's not a free agent until 2015.
