October 23-- Gibbs has a lot of splainin to do

Mark Brunell is not being replaced as starting quarterback of the Redskins, Joe Gibbs said he is going to analyze all players over this bye week and he is not against making some changes if he feels it will help the team play better but he said he is not focussed on the quarterback as a problem..

It is possible we will be seeing more of rookie LB Rocky McIntosh who Gibbs intimated might see some more playing time.. One source told me in regard to McIntosh, "When he stops mkaing mistakes in practice he'll play more.."

Gibbs made a point to address what he called a mistake on his part not to stop the bus on the way out of Redskin Park to thanka handful of fans who had coem to see the team off to Indianpolis.. When we returned to the Park after landing around 11PM there was a couple dosen fans waiting and Gibbs stopped the bus to shake hands and give autographs.. More fans came to redskins park this afternoon and some autographed items were awaiting them..

The team has two practices this week and then they will be off from Thursday through Sunday.. Gibbs said these two days will be used to evaluate the run game and then the second day to do the same with the pass game.. Gibbs said the team will look at all schematics hinting that change is coming to the way the team runs their scheme...
Brandon Lloyd told me on the Monday Night Replay show that last week the defense spent a portion of the Thursday practice doing the Oklahoma Drill, he said he thought he was in an old school training camp..

On the personal foul penalties: Gibbs took the blame saying he needs to teach the team better about what they cannot do.. he stood up for Santana Moss who received a 15 yard penalty after he head butted a Colts corner in retaliation for what Gibbs called a "cheap shot."
Gibbs admitted the team should not have sent punter Derrick Frost out to punt following the numerous penalties that led to the Skins kicking off from their own five yard line.. It is not legal to punt off a penalty following a score.. Frost said he was just "doing what I was told to do." He also apologized for taking off his helmet and receiving a personal foul..
On Antwaan Randle-El's celebbratory TD, Gibbs continued to take an approach that seemed to be against all the rules that prohibit celebration saying, "he hit the goal post and went to the ground. You can't do anything on the ground. Case closed."

Asked if he was going to make any changes to the personnel department, Gibbs said "No." He credited Vinny Cerrato for the work he does and said he feels terrible for Dan Snyder who "feels helpless." Gibbs continues to stay the course in terms of how this team is built saying he would hate to think about what this team would be without the free agents they have..HMMMM..
Gibbs also gave staunch support for O coordinator Al Saunders..

Brandon Lloyd said there was no altercation between he and Antwaan Randle-El when he was obviously upset during the third quarter of the Colts game.. The two both said they were not fighting with each other and that Randle-El was actually trying to calm LLoyd down who said it wasn't about any one player one his involvement, just the situation the team was in.. Gibbs called the two of them, "Good buddies." RB coach Earnest Byner also came to diffuse the situation, Lloyd said there was no problem with Byner either..

Gibbs backed DE Andre Carter who he says is close to having a major impact for the team and the only reason he was off the field (which he was more then in past games particularly during run downs) was only to rest him.
Gibbs did admit however that S Adam Archuletta is having trouble adjusting to the new system.. Troy Vincent who has been here for less then a week played a large ammount of plays at safety in Archuletta's spot.. Archuletta Gibbs said was in a completely different defense where he just took a half of the field with the rams, now he is dealing with many more responsibilities and he is obviously uncomfortable..

The injury list is long: QB Mark Brunell suffered a strained rib cage muscle.. He may miss the Tuesday practice, RB Clinton Portis has a "mild" high ankle sprain.. He will have an MRI.. WR Santana Moss suffered a strained hamstring.. he had an MRI and the team said "there isn't much there." But neither he nor Portis are expected to practice either day this week.. LB Lemar Marshall has a mild high ankle sprain, he missed the Colts game.. CB Carlos Rogers had the soft cast protecting his broken thumb removed and is hopeful to return to practice next week.. LB Marcus Washington is having his sore hip treated, he likely will rest this week.. WR Antwaan Randle-El has a sore heel, DT Joe Salave'a got through the game well on a sore calf muscle, G Derrick Dockery was said to have done well after the game on a sore hip.. FB Mike Sellars elbow injury is said to have done better.. CB Shawn Springs cramped up in both calves at the end of the Colts game, this was attributed to a conditioning issue.. DT Cornelious Griffin will continue to have his hip injuury treated, likely not to practice this week..

I thought Parcell's switching to Romo would put some pressure on Gibbs to make a switch, but now he could use Romo's performance to keep Brunell in a few more weeks. Funny thing, though, outcome of the two games was identical...

By the way, did they put a muzzle on your criticism of Danny and Vinny as a condition of employment?
