October 23-- Gibbs on Redskins radio

I thought the most telling moment during Joe Gibbs weekly appearance on Redskins Radio with Larry and myself was when he said, “No one cares about the excuse of injuries.” The Redskins have been taking a tremendous amount of heat for the inability to produce against the Cardinals on Sunday yet no one wants to use the shuffling of the line as the reason.. The Skins O-line injury situation has been well documented and last week the practice group looked nothing like the unit on the field against AZ, but as Gibbs intimated, excuses are just that, even valid ones..

Gibbs said Brandon Lloyd remains the #4 receiver calling the core a “very competitive place.” Santana Moss is “our playmaker,” even after a couple of tough weeks.. Antwaan Randle El remains the clear number 2 and James Thrash was cited again as the clear #3.. Gibbs even mentioned Keenan McCardell when discussing the core menaing you can expect Lloyd to remain a role player and 4th WR on 4 wide sets at best..

The Redskins-Patriots game is an interesting matchup.. This will be by far the best defense the Pats have faced this year, only Jax and Pitt have given up fewer points and the Skins are tied with them and one other team for fewest touchdowns allowed in the NFL.. Still Tom Brady has 27 TD throws, on pace to shatter Peyton Manning’s single season record.. NE also stands as currently the highest scoring team in NFL history at 39.9 points per game, one point better then the 1950 Rams.. The 1998 Vikings and 1983 Redskins are ranked 5th and 7th on the all time scoring list and are the first among current era teams.. Gibbs described the situation not unlike other golfers facing Tiger Woods, saying “going up against someone better then you is very tough.” I asked him whether he believed their roster is THAT much better then his, and Gibbs deferred more to the results which is inarguable..

OK men..

Ever since I began watching the Skins back in the early 80's, I can honestly say I've never been more worried going into a game. The Pats scare the heck out of me. And your right, Bram, at this point, they are the best team ever. But if anyone can shut them down, it's our defense!

Now if we can just get that O-line somewhat healthy... we might have a glimmer of the possibility of a chance against NE.

Definitely need to score some points this week..
