Initial Thoughts on Ravens/Redskins

I'm going to re-watch the game tomorrow and see if I notice something different and I'll check some stats, but here are some quick thoughts:

-Good Performances from Chris Cooley, Santana Moss, London Fletcher, Carlos Rogers and Clinton Portis. Nice to know that some of the veteran Redskins stepped up tonight.

-Not so Good Performances from Larry Johnson, Albert Haynesworth, most of the O-line, Donovan McNabb and Rex Grossman. More on that in the game re-cap.

-Anthony Armstrong looks like he'll be on the final 53 man roster. Two weeks in a row where he has made plays and done well with the starters.

- Trent Williams Watch: a very so-so night. Had some good moments against Suggs but some real bad ones as well.

-Kareem Moore's injury is a concern. Especially if he's out 4-6 weeks.

-Let's call this game a serious learning experience. This is what happens when you aren't prepared for surprises, play sloppy, make mistakes and drop passes. The Ravens are a damn good team and the only way you have any chance of beating a team like that is to play mistake free and play hard. I hope the Redskins learned a bit about themselves tonight and where they have to go. I know I did.

-Jim Zorn gets a Gatorade shower. Good for him I suppose, I like the Z-Man and so does his current players. I guess we should celebrate, this is the first time a Jim Zorn team has won @ FedEx in awhile.

-Shut the F*** Up Albert Haynesworth. First you moan about your "headaches" holding you out of practice. You were dizzy and throwing up, so it was more than "headaches". Then you gripe about being with the 2nd team when you missed practice b/c you were sick. If anything, the Skins should have benched you tonight. No practice = no play. You were sick, fine, but you shouldn't be in the game then. Frankly, I'm tired of this drama and I'm tired of you. Nothing is more annoying than wasted talent and Albert Haynesworth is immensely talented in no matter what system he's in. The problem is that he's never motivated to use his talent and has to be coaxed to do anything, which leads to Haynesworth griping to the media about the scheme. He did it last year when the Skins ran a 4-3 with Greg Blache and he's done it this year with Jim Haslett's 3-4. It's not going to change or get better. Another Dan Snyder/Vinny Cerrato blunder that is currently haunting the men who are trying to turn the franchise around.
