Second, WOW REDSKINS!!! I am a huge redskins fan. But even I have to be a little less positive. If Michael Vick would not have left the ball game with a rib and chest injury early in the first quarter, it would have been a totally different ball game. The Eagles almost beat the 'Skins WITHOUT Vick! Jason Avant caught the football in the end zone and then for whatever reason just let it go! It hit him in the hands!! Lucky break for the Redskins!
Kevin Kolb played one of the worst games I've ever seen a quarterback play. That being said, he still gave the Eagles a chance to win!! A number of times he should have chucked the ball down field for DeSean Jackson and instead threw it underneath the coverage to LeSean McCoy. McCoy had over 100 yards receiving for the game.
The Redskins need to learn how to play both halves of a football game. They put up 17 points in the first half and held the Eagles to only 6 points. Then they get the ball to start the second half. Step on the accelerator run them into the dirt!! But no. The Redskins offense was almost non-existent for much of the second half. The Redskins almost gave away another game because of a poor second half performance. You can credit the defense for standing firm and stopping the Eagle offense when they had to.
In the words of Bill Cowher "so what if we won ugly." Those words have never been so true. After 4 weeks of play the Redskins are 2-2 and sit 2-0 in the NFC East. Who cares how many non-division teams they beat. They could go 6-10 and still win the NFC East and make the playoffs. Up next for the Redskins is the Green Bay Packers at FedEx Field next Sunday.

"I am very disappointed in Lane Kiffin's approach to this. Typically speaking, when coaches are interested in hiring or discussing potential employment from coaches on respective staffs there is a courtesy call made from the head coach or athletic director indicating there is an interest in talking to the assistant. So I am very disappointed in the lack of professionalism on behalf of Lane, to call me and leave me a voicemail after Kennedy had informed me he had taken the job. It is just a lack of professionalism."
The Titans plan to promote from within for replacing Pola.

The end of this debacle over to trade or not to trade Haynesworth, is far from over. Do the Redskins really want to eat almost $20 mil in cap hits over him? The asking price for Haynesworth is steep, due to the cap hit. The Redskins, however, have no draft picks in the 2nd or 3rd round of the draft. What will they do? This Albert Haynesworth trade talk will continue all the way up until the draft. Until then, "Fat" Albert Haynesworth will be rakin' in the big money. He just got a $21 million dollar bonus last month. Like I said, its a steep price for Haynesworth.
From Penn State:
- Junior: Taylor Battle
- Adnan Hodzic declares but does not hire an agent so he has the opportunity to return to school for another year.
Also, WVU's DaSean Butler had surgery done on his left knee to repair his torn ACL.
Why was "Fireman Ed" quoted by the Daily News? Whatever. Thanks Ed! Didn't know you were such an "expert"! Anyhow, this could either be the Jets attempt at persuading Taylor to sign with them, or Taylor's way of getting the Dolphins to offer him a bigger and better contract. But ask Ed, I guess he's the REAL expert.

- a mystery team
The trade will most likely include a draft going to the Redskins. Many "experts" think that it will be either a 3rd or a 4th round draft pick. Either way, with the Redskins trading away the 37th pick, they need to acquire another pick of some sorts.
I am a firm believer in the ability and potential of Jason Campbell. Any team that is willing to take him is getting a high quality player. All it takes is a little bit of patience, and lets face it...Dan Snyder as none, and Campbell will explode onto the NFL scene. Campbell has yet to sign his restricted free agent tender. Until a deal gets done, either with a trade or Campbell signs the tender, Jason Campbell will not be attending off season workouts with the Washington Redskins. Mike Shanahan and company will be pursuing the trade all the way up until draft day.

Donovan McNabb is a Washington Redskin. This trade works out well for both teams. The Redskins get a quarterback that Mike Shanahan can work with and the Eagles get the draft pick that they have always wanted. The Redskins traded away the 37th pick and possibly a 3rd or 4th round pick for this marquee QB. Kevin Kolb finally takes control of the Eagles offense. With this trade, the Redskins are sure not to make another bone-headed pick with the 4th pick in Aprils draft. We can now expect them to select:
- Russel Okung, offensive tackle from Oklahoma St.
- Anthony Davis, offensive tackle from Rutgers
- Bryan Bulaga, offensive tackle from Iowa
- Trent Williams, offensive tackle from Oklahoma
Why an offensive tackle? To protect the quarterbacks blind side. Whether its McNabb, Campbell, Grossman, or even Colt Brennan, you need to protect the quarterback in order for them to be productive.
What do the Eagles get out of this mess? They now have 11 picks in this years draft. 11! Teams only have 11 players on offense and defense respectively! They hand over the reins to their offense to a young and promising hot shot named Kevin Kolb and they have the ability to draft lineman and weapons for Kolb to throw to. The downside for the Eagles? They traded their gunslinger away to a division foe. They will see McNabb twice a season. They have since made their opponent better. Not a smart move for the Eagles.
McNabb will also be able to mentor the younger quarterbacks on the Redskins. Colt Brennan could very well become the next Aaron Rodgers. That all depends, however, on Donovan McNabbs attitude toward the situation and how Mike Shanahan and company receive him. For the time being, be proud Redskins fans and be cautious Eagles fans, both your teams have made a move that will greatly benefit one, but could greatly hurt the other.
