arrggg I need to talk to my commish about changing the scoring rules next season. I had Burress and the opposing team started Moss and I'm now down 7 to 6 because it's 20 receiving yards for 1 point, in contrast to the default 10 per point in most leagues.

Yeesh it's getting ugly here in Washington. I don't know why most of us didn't expect it, a new coach, going onto the road, against the Super Bowl champions, not like we were supposed to win this game.

Redskins fans are stupid, so many calling for Todd Collins to start next week, that Campbell isn't ready to learn the West Coast offense... I didn't see any offense tonight, let alone a west coast one. We'd have gotten beat around just as bad no matter who we had in there.

Wow Washington's offense looked bad...topped off by a MONSTER 1 pt. showing from Cooley. You know when Madden finally gets around to pointing that a player has been under utilized, the coaching staff must be really clueless.

I'm kind of pissed. In one league I have Portis, Jacobs, and Cooley and the other I have just Portis.

Eli getting that bootleg really pissed me off. Last year that was Jacobs getting me with the 1 yarders. I was OK with the yardage the 2 RB's were piling up until I saw my score bump for no apparent reason. I realized I forgot I had Cooley as my starting TE this year.

Redskins offense is putrid, and they were running too much time off the clock during their drive at the end of the first half. Zorn should have used his timeouts better.

I'm a Skins fan, but couldn't see the game. All I've seen is the highlights- NFL Live, NFL Network and SportCenter. I understand, and am not upset about, what everything everyone's complained about- new coach, young QB to a new system, so you shouldn't be surprised the offense looked so bad. I was quite happy with the effort I saw from the WRs- Randle El with 7rec/73y, Santana with only 37 yards, but a TD and a wonderful effort to catch the ball between his hand and his... cheek.
No, the play that upset me was the pump-fake to get Plax open on the right sideline, which they've played an innumerable times. My problem is Carlos Rogers- caught looking into the backfield and freezes on Manning's pump, letting Burress behind him. Perhaps the scheme called for help over the top (woulda made sense), but when Rogers turns and sees no help immediately there, he JOGS toward Plaxico.

JOGS.

While the help D came full-speed from the middle of the field and threw himself at Plax, forcing him out of bounds-

Carlos... Rogers... JOGGED.
