October 22-- Colts 36 Skins 22, Gregg Williams tells me to shove it

WR Santana Moss suffered a hamstring strain, he will be re-evaluated later this week, he left the game in the 4th quarter but could not continue..

RB Clinton Portis suffered a bruised lower leg.. He also was hit in the groin during the game which caused him to miss a couple of plays.. He will be re-evaluated later this week as well..

CB Ade Jimoh suffered a shoulder injury but returned to the game.. DT Kedric Golston suffered a back strain but played through it.. CB Shawn Springs left the game in the 4th quarter with cramps in his calves.. he appeared to be OK afterward.. The team started the second half with Warrick Holdman playing MLB because LB Khary Campbell had to receive IV fluids at halftime.. he also returned later in the game..

The Colts scored 3 touchdowns on 15 offensive plays in the third quarter erasing a one point halftime deficit and building an insurmountable lead as Washington fell to 2-5.. This is the second time in 3 seasons that a Gibbs team is 2 and 5 after seven games since the coach’s return..
K Nick Novak missed two field goals, he also was forced to kick off from the five yard line during a bizarre series of events where the team was penalized 15 yards for excessive celebration following an Antwaan Randle El punt return for a TD then a second personal foul when punter Derrick Frost took off his helmet disgusted with the refs when they whistled dead a punt on a free kick.. Joe Gibbs said he had never seen anything like it..

WR Brandon Lloyd was involved in some heated arguments on the sideline during the second half of the game that had to be handled by RB coach Earnest Byner.. FB Mike Sellars also became very animated during the second half collapse.. Randle El and Lloyd may have initially been involved in the majority of the conversation.. When asked about the “altercation” Joe Gibbs said he knew nothing about it..

Gibbs said he will not listen to public pressure in regard to any changes he may or may not make during the bye week.. Gibbs said “ I will look at everything, and you are never too old to learn something, but the changes have to come from within the organization not some people who are outside the walls.”

Gregg Williams took umbridge when I asked him if he was concerned about players splintering after starting 0-5 telling me that “It is a slap in the face to ask a question like that. Why don’t you go ask a surgeon if he will lay down before a big surgery.” He also said the team has too many leaders to quit now.. The team in general continued to keep a very public happy face saying that they will not be pointing fingers, Casey Rabach said it best, “Everyone is to blame.”
Williams said the team’s fundamentals are the issue with this team and it will be addressed during the bye week..

The Skins are 1-2 following the bye week the last 3 years..
