    They seem really down on Haynesworth...Dont' think he will be much of a factor despite having some success against Schaub in the past...

    That was an excellent read and it certainly helped me learn a little bit more about their team.

    I think there will be some plays designed to take Orakpo out of the way. Mis directions, etc.

    Yeah...

    I would hope that the Texans coaching staff is smart enough to not let one player beat them...If he is the most dominant player on their D, then I hope the Texans find a way to slow him down some..

    And running the ball right at him a bunch early will slow him down. Especially after he meets "The Hammer" a few times...:D

    Great venue, TC.

    This is consistent with comments I posted in another thread.....that Haynesworth seemed to still be playing the Titans scheme in the Shanahan D..........that would indeed be confusing.............to him and the team!:)

    Arakpo is 6'4" 260. I could see Leach bangin with him once or twice but I would not take that approach. I am more of ju-jitsu "use his strength against him". I want Arakpo not knowing whether he should attack the line or play back for a pass. Keep him in no man's land and confused. Our TEs and slots should keep him jumping. I think Slaton could actually do well on draws and receiving out of the backfield.

    That one is unusual because the Redskins have so many good bloggers. I like to do these though I generally don't for divisional matchups because I feel like people know the teams pretty well. I try to figure out different and interesting ways to make watching the games on Sundays more interesting or get people more connected to the team.

    Not hating on Orakpo, but I think people are over intimidated by him. He is good, but our tackles did do a decent job against Freeney and Mathis, one of the best book end DE's in the NFL.

    "Murf: Honestly, the Houston Texans worry me. Last year, the Texans had the number-one ranked passing offense in football, thanks to Matt Schaub, Andre Johnson and a bunch of spare parts. Now, all of the sudden, some guy named Arian Foster shows up and the ground game is as lethal as the aerial attack. "


    So KW, JJ, and OD are spare parts. Arguably one of the best groups of WR/TE's in the NFL are spare parts with out AJ. Really????

    Look I know KW and JJ aren't Pro Bowl #1 WR's, but you don't want 3 #1 WR's in your line up. The #2 and #3 WR have special roles in the offense as does the #1.

    Besides that we OD and Slaton, so I would hardley call that line up spare parts!!!!!! Oh and Andersons not horrible but any stretch of the imagination. Although he needs some dance lessons.

    Great article, but that one comment pissed me off. I guess in a way Kubes/Schaub should take it as a compliment.
