Miami Dolphins

Seeing Jon Gruden back in the NFL, a major coup for the Oakland Raiders, has me wondering again.

What is the surest solution for any team looking to shake off the doldrums and make a serious run at the Super Bowl? And, to go along with that, why didn’t it work for the Miami Dolphins when they got their last splashy hire, Nick Saban?

Wayne Huizenga left the league when he couldn’t come up for answers to those questions. He’s the former Dolphins owner who made the huge headline hires of Jimmy Johnson and Saban at different times, and who had Dan Marino as his quarterback for a decade, but still never broke through to the top.

Huizenga was trying to buy a little magic, just as the Raiders are now with their $100 million investment in Gruden. Remember, Oakland is where Gruden started his head coaching career, but the late Al Davis tired of him after a couple of brief postseason appearances and let his popular young coach leave for Tampa Bay.

So what happened? Magic, more or less. A Super Bowl title in his first season there. A flash of charisma, too, that had you thinking dynasty.

A solid roster already in place surely helped. The Bucs had made the playoffs in four of the previous five seasons under Tony Dungy, who got the boot despite an overall regular-season record of 54-42. Right off the bat, Gruden could depend on Pro Bowl defenders like Warren Sapp and John Lynch and Derrick Brooks, who combined to make Tampa Bay No. 1 in fewest points and yards allowed.

There was, however, no elite quarterback. Gruden used Brad Johnson for most of that Super Bowl season, and turned to Rob Johnson and Shaun King for three emergency starts when injuries struck.

There was no immediate promise of help from the NFL draft, either. Tampa Bay traded its first- and second-round picks to Oakland for the rights to sign Gruden away.

Altogether, it seems that Gruden grabbed hold of some very rare lightning in his debut season with the Bucs, because he was only 45-51 after that, with a couple of wild-card playoff losses.

Clearly, this gig is harder than Bill Belichick makes it look. That’s why, in retrospect, it would have been astounding for Saban to thrive immediately with the Dolphins, and why it’s disappointing that he didn’t stick around to see what would happen when a few more things came his way.

No fewer than 11 coaches who already had Super Bowl titles or would eventually win one were working in the league when Saban showed up. All of them had figured out as much as anyone can about succeeding in the NFL, yet two of them – Gruden and three-time Super Bowl champion Joe Gibbs – could do more than match Saban’s 15-17 record in the seasons of 2005 and 2006.

Bill Parcells was 18-14 with Dallas over that same stretch. Bill Cowher was 19-13 with a Super Bowl title during those two years. Tom Coughlin and Brian Billick were 19-13 and failed between them to win a single playoff game.

Trying to be smarter than every other coach is not a viable long-term strategy in this league, unless you’re Belichick and Tom Brady, and having a great organization merely gives you a chance.

Look at Saban’s staff in 2005. His defensive line coach was Dan Quinn, who nearly won the Super Bowl last year as Atlanta’s head coach and has the Falcons on another title hunt this month. Two other future NFL head coaches – Jason Garrett and Scott Linehan – worked assistant jobs on offense. And no matter what anybody thinks of Will Muschamp, the Dolphins’ defensive coordinator in 2005, he and South Carolina just got a bowl victory over Jim Harbaugh, the savant of Ann Arbor and a former NFL head coach himself.

If there are lessons in all of this for Adam Gase, and for those who believe him to be suddenly in over his head, it’s that the NFL makes every coach look confused from time to time, especially those, like Saban, who didn’t have a top quarterback. Makes some very accomplished coaches decide to stay out altogether, too, men like Bobby Bowden and Bear Bryant and Joe Paterno and Tom Osborne.

So it’s good luck to Gruden and the Raiders. He’s a good coach but they have no guarantee of a brilliant relationship, even with glitzy Las Vegas in their future.

That’s because the Raiders are coming off a 6-10 season, just like Miami, and because there are no sure solutions for turning a mediocre team into a monster overnight. None at all.

Cheap New Orleans Saints Jersey Wholesale From China For Sale

New Orleans Saints

New Orleans Saints

METAIRIE, La. — Drew Brees didn’t survive all these years in the NFL by winging it.

Meticulous in his preparation, he is approaching this week as if it’s any other game week. Yes, he’s well aware the New Orleans Saints are in playoffs for the first time since 2013, hosting the Carolina Panthers in an NFC wild-card game Sunday.

He also knows that, two weeks shy of his 39th birthday, the window on his career is closing.

But to change things up this week, to put more pressure or expectations on himself and his teammates, would cheat the process. That would cheat the Saints and their fans.

That would cheat him.

“I approach every game the same way. I prepare like every game could be my last or it’s a playoff game or I’ve got something to prove and I’ve got an edge,” Brees said Wednesday. “So it’s not like, `Oh, the playoffs are here. It’s time to ramp it up.’ It’s always important.

“So for me, the preparation is no different.”

More: Cam Newton’s supporting cast must step up for Panthers to overcome Saints

This doesn’t mean he’s blasé about the opportunity the Saints have. New Orleans made the playoffs five times in Brees’ first eight years, reaching the NFC title game in 2006 and winning the Super Bowl three years later.

Since losing in the divisional round in 2013, however, the Saints compiled identical 7-9 finishes in 2014, ’15 and ‘16.

As the Saints limped through the season, many around the league watched in pity, wondering if the last best years of Brees’ career would be wasted.

“We went through a little bit of a roller coaster ride in ’14, ’15 with the roster turnover,” Brees acknowledged. “We were trying to find ourselves again, re-establish what we had built when Sean (Payton) first got here in 2006.

“I think that’s what was realized, was that we needed to go out and find the right type of guys. Really value character, toughness and intelligence in the way that we draft and the way that we go out and look at free agents,” Brees added. “That’s really been the process the last two years. You look around the locker room, you see those types of guys and it’s the reason we’ve been successful.”

Guys like starting right guard Larry Warford and receiver Ted Ginn Jr., third on the team with four touchdown catches. Or defensive end Alex Okafor, whose 4.5 sacks are his most since his first full season with Arizona.

Or rookies Alvin Kamara, whose versatility has helped take some of the load off Brees, and Marshon Lattimore, who leads the Saints with five interceptions, one of which he returned for a touchdown.

Though the Saints got off to another slow start – 0-2 for the fourth year in a row – Brees said he knew this team was different. Sure enough, a win at Carolina kickstarted a run of eight consecutive victories.

“We knew that man, we were just that close. So much closer than I think most people give us credit for. And you just needed the validation of going out there and getting the W,” Brees said. “It was just the confidence to know that the process is good. We’re doing something right here and it’s something to build on.”

There it is again, process and preparation.

Ginn said he always knew Brees was one of the best to play the game, a lock for the Hall of Fame. But he’s developed an even greater appreciation for him in his short time in New Orleans, just watching what Brees does every day.

“Just seeing how much of a routine he has, how much he does the same thing every day, it kind of helps you get into a routine a little bit. Kind of helps you get into a different situation when you’re coming into something new,” Ginn said.

“It’s been a blessing to be able to see somebody like that.”

Brees is fourth in the NFL in passing with 4,334 yards while the team is fifth in both passing yards per game (262) and rushing yards per game (129.4). His passer rating (103.9) is its highest since 2013.

Brees said he’s more diligent in taking care of his body now than, say, 10 years ago, which means he has to be more efficient with everything else. But while the way he does it might be more compressed, what he’s doing isn’t.

“I know how I learn the best. I know what I need to do in order to put the days’ worth of work behind me so I can move on to the next day,” Brees said.

The ultimate goal, of course, is another Super Bowl. But you can’t get there by skipping steps. So Brees will keep on doing what he’s doing all these years, treating every game like any other, regardless of how big it is.

Cheap Houston Texans Jersey From China For Free Shipping

Posted on by

HOUSTON, Texas –
During the really tough times as he fought to overcome cancer, David Quessenberry would daydream about reaching his lifelong goal of playing in an NFL game.

It was a plan that was derailed when he was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, and put on hold for years as he underwent treatment for the disease.

Finally healthy, the guard was elevated to the active roster from the practice squad this week and in what his teammates call a storybook turn coach Bill O’Brien said he’ll make his NFL debut on Monday when the Houston Texans host the Pittsburgh Steelers.

“It’s been long, it’s been really tough … nothing that I’ve been through has been normal, a normal path since I’ve been drafted,” Quessenberry said. “This is just one of those things that lines up for an awesome opportunity on Monday … football on Christmas.”

Quessenberry was drafted by the Texans in the sixth round in 2013, but sustained a season-ending foot injury before appearing in a game. The following June he was diagnosed with cancer and spent three years fighting the disease before being declared cancer-free and returning to practice in May. He was cut before the season, but signed to the practice squad the next day, where he remained until his promotion this week.

“To overcome what he’s overcome, to be able to step back onto the field in an NFL football game, is an incredible accomplishment for him,” O’Brien said. “And I know for him, he’s such a driven guy, he really wants to go out there and play well.”

And O’Brien was quick to point out that he earned his spot on the roster.

“He doesn’t want to just show up and (say): ‘Yeah, thank you.’ This isn’t a pat on the back,” O’Brien said. “This is a roster move. He’s gotten better every week this week on the practice squad and we think he can help us.”

The 27-year-old lauded his family for their support during his treatment and is excited to share the moment with them on Monday.

“I’m sure it’s going to be special for them. Finally,” he said. “We talked about it and dreamed it and worked for it and now it’s here. For me, I get to play on Monday … on Christmas. It doesn’t get any better than that.”

Quessenberry’s fight with cancer has served as an inspiration for many who are dealing with the disease and he has continued to spend time with cancer patients at local hospitals since his recovery. He wasn’t always comfortable with the notoriety he gained as he worked to beat cancer, but has since made peace with it.

“That was hard for me at first just because I don’t always want to be known like this,” he said. “But then I’ve talked to so many patients and survivors and they’ve said that my story gives them hope or inspiration and that’s something that means a lot to me and something that I’m willing to bear and something that I’ve embraced.”

In June he was honored by the Pro Football Writers of America as the recipient of the George Halas Award. It’s an award given annually to an NFL coach, player or staff member who overcomes adversity to succeed.

Quarterback T.J. Yates, who has known Quessenberry since he was drafted couldn’t be happier for his friend and said his journey belongs in a storybook.

“To see how far he’s come back and to see his body transformation once he got sick, how much weight he lost. How much muscle he lost,” Yates said.

“To work as hard as he did to come back and to get to this point and to get this opportunity, it’s really cool.”

Receiver DeAndre Hopkins and Quessenberry are two of only three players left on Houston’s roster from the 2013 draft.

Since they joined the team the same year, Hopkins has been around to see Quessenberry’s entire path to recovery and has been one of his biggest cheerleaders as he returned to the field.

“That’s amazing for what he’s overcome – cancer,” Hopkins said. “Just for him to even be able to be normal in life and not just come out on the football field, but just be a normal person, a lot of people don’t come back from that, especially what he had and how bad it was. For a guy in my (rookie) class especially, I feel a little bit more happy for him because not many from my class are still here.”

Quessenberry knows it will be emotional when he steps on the field on Monday for his first game. But after working so hard and for so many years to get to this point, he’s not going to let his feelings get in the way of his chance to perform for the Texans, whose offensive line has been decimated by injuries.

“I’m excited just to cut it loose and just play ball and just be like a normal player,” he said. “I’m in the game plan. I’m really excited to suit up and play on Monday.”

Cheap Kansas City Chiefs Jersey Wholesale From China For Outlet

Kansas City Chiefs

Kansas City Chiefs

The first five weeks were a lot of fun, but the Chiefs just might be better off now than they were through their 5-0 stretch.

Marcus Peters just had the game of his career in the most important regular-season game of Andy Reid’s Chiefs tenure. The offense is fixed, in large part thanks to Kareem Hunt. The Kansas City Chiefs seem confident, and are firing on all cylinders. Times are good.

So where do we go from here? How optimistic can Chiefs Kingdom dare to be?

It’s not quite as bright as it was in week five, but it might be better this way.

The Chiefs showed a lot of weaknesses in their midseason meltdown, so now it feels like the Chiefs are a flawed team, masquerading as an AFC West champion-to-be and a faux-contender. But it may not be that bleak.

The Chiefs showed a lot of flaws, but they just might be better for them. The offense has been refocused and rebuilt on Kareem Hunt, Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce. The defense has looked better in the last two weeks than it looked at any point through the first five. The offense was beaten by cover-two defenses and even meager pressure on Alex Smith, but now they’re busting zones and the offensive line and Alex Smith seem to trust each other again. The defense couldn’t get pressure on a quarterback to save their lives, now they live in the backfield.

These were all issues that would cost the Chiefs a playoff game (or even a playoff spot) if they weren’t resolved eventually. With two convincing divisional wins in the last two weeks, you can make a reasonable argument that the Chiefs are better off now than they were in week five.

Also on today’s show: lots of discussion about Marcus Peters, and Ron Parker and Darrelle Revis give Peters high praise.

Cheap Chicago Bears Jersey Wholesale From China For Sale

Posted on by

With a quarter of a season left it’s fairly obvious the Bears aren’t very good. A jaw-droppingly dreadful home loss to the formerly one-win 49ers is the latest evidence of that sad fact.

Must be the coaches. What have they ever done? John Fox came here a career Super Bowl loser having failed to pull off the trick twice with two different franchises. Defensive coordinator Vic Fangio had the same position he now holds at yet a third team that lost a Super Bowl.

Castigate coaches all you like, but it is a time-honored belief that coaches can’t coach if their players can’t play. Let’s be polite and say the Bears’ talent is lacking.

How far short is it? When the Bears face the Browns on Christmas Eve at Soldier Field, four experts contacted for this story believe it will be a battle between the two worst rosters in the NFL. At least the Browns have a ton of draft picks to fall back on.

“Yeah, I think their offense is the easiest in the NFL to game plan,’’ a longtime coach admitted.

It’s a formula the Bears see every week: stop the run; make them throw; cover them man-to-man on passing downs and watch the receivers fail to separate.

The Bears defense was keeping them in games earlier in the season, but they are a shadow of their former selves with multiple injury concerns at pass rusher, inside linebacker and safety. Once upon a time the Bears also boasted a power running game before injuries and inconsistency on the line and at running back took a toll.

It has been a theme with the Bears. Injuries follow the franchise like night follows day. The team used a strategy of pretending it was all bad luck after last year’s three-win, injury-plagued season. They didn’t make aggressive, drastic changes in staff or procedure. Heck, at this point why not try a shaman or a faith healer, even a witch doctor?

From the lofty heights of a 3-4 record with victories over the Steelers, Ravens and Panthers, the Bears have been stacking losses like Lego pieces. If every setback were a springboard to greatness the Bears would be a Super Bowl contender.

Sadly, that is not how it works in the NFL. Fox and his staff will be out of work at the end of the season and kid general manager Ryan Pace will be tasked with getting a younger, more energetic, less experienced and relatively unknown replacement.

Bigger name coaches won’t want Pace picking their players — not when his Plan A keeps failing and Plan B seems incapable of working. There won’t be much faith in a guy who can’t find a player to produce a sack unless he’s claimed off waivers or runs out of safeties to the point of signing a “starter” off the street. The GM has given us a work in progress that hasn’t progressed.

The offensive line is measured via sundial, or at least plays that way, a Pro Bowl receiver was allowed to walk without replacement and the shiny new quarterback to rust unfurnished with nary a playmaker in sight.

Pace will find a coach. You can get anybody to take a job. People want a paycheck. A bigger problem will be finding assistant coaches because most of the really good ones are already under contract around the league.

Any new coach will want to turn over the roster — out with the old and in with the new. Pace can begin another rebuild in the fourth year of his tenure. Blame the bad free agent signings and uneven drafts on the coaches.

But at some point in a private moment maybe he ought to ask himself if it is the coaches or the players, or even the guy stacking the deck?

Why wait three years to draft a quarterback? Shouldn’t Jay Cutler have been released a year ago if you were going to spend more money on one year of Mike Glennon? How’s Marcus Wheaton doing? How can you run out of kickers?

The Bears would own the No. 6 pick if the season ended now despite having the same 3-9 record as the Broncos and Colts. The winless Browns would pick first, followed by the 49ers and Giants (both 2-10). The rest of those teams all have a coach or GM with fewer years on the job than the Bears with Fox and Pace.

Being further along in a rebuild seemingly would indicate the Bears would be getting better instead of worse. Maybe Pace will get it right with a different coach who has a resume as thin as his own. Shouldn’t the Bears at least have to beat the Browns before that is decided?

Cheap Tampa Bay Buccaneers Jersey From China For Outlet

Posted on by
Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (AP) — Ryan Fitzpatrick wants no part of a quarterback controversy, and one surely doesn’t exist in Tampa Bay.

At least, not yet.

Fitzpatrick threw for 275 yards and two touchdowns in leading the Buccaneers past the Miami Dolphins 30-20 on Sunday.

Fitzpatrick now has as many wins as the Bucs’ starter this season — two, in two tries — as Tampa Bay got in Jameis Winston’s starts over the season’s first eight outings.

“I like being the Grandpa,” said Fitzpatrick, who turns 35 this week.

Grandpa can still play.

“Real confident, very smart, processes things well and can make plays outside the pocket,” Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans said. “He’s similar to Jameis. We have two really good quarterbacks.”

Winston has been dealing with an injury to his throwing shoulder, and it’s unclear how long he’ll be sidelined. He’s got some off-the-field issues dogging him again as well, after it was learned last week that the NFL is investigating an allegation that he groped a female Uber driver in 2016 — a claim that Winston has denied.

None of that mattered on the field Sunday, anyway, with Fitzpatrick completing 22 of 37 passes and leading what essentially was the winning drive in the final 3 minutes after Miami tied the game.

Fitzpatrick got the Bucs into range for an easy field goal by Patrick Murray, and Tampa Bay got a touchdown as time expired when the Dolphins fumbled away a last-ditch, lateral-filled kickoff return.

“I thought we really stepped up at the end there,” Fitzpatrick said. “It was tough getting things going in the second half. We had a couple of possessions where I think we had seven plays in the third quarter. Games are going to have those ebbs and flows.”

Bucs coach Dirk Koetter couldn’t heap enough praise onto Fitzpatrick after the win.

“Heck, he’s 2-0 as a starter … a calm, professional leader,” Koetter said. “When you go get a veteran backup like that, that’s what you’re looking for.”

The Buccaneers (4-6) still have playoff hopes — slim, but existent — because of their backup.

The Dolphins (4-6) may have to ask their backup to find a way to keep them hanging on as well.

Matt Moore took over at halftime when Jay Cutler was diagnosed with a concussion, and completed 17 of 28 passes for 282 yards and a touchdown that tied the game at 20-20 — after Miami trailed 20-7 when he took the field for the first time.

“I understand my role,” Moore said. “My role is the backup quarterback on this team and when it’s time to play it’s time to play. Whatever happens, when you get the call to go, there’s obviously excitement, you’re fired up, you’re ready to go. I’ve done this for a long time.”

He might have to do it again next week against the king of the NFL mountain: Miami goes to New England next Sunday.

Here’s some of what to know after the Bucs’ win over the Dolphins:
IT GETS NO EASIER

The Dolphins are in huge trouble. They play New England twice in the next three weeks. They’re looking at probable cold-weather games at Buffalo and Kansas City on Dec. 17 and Dec. 24. And they have only one game left against a team currently below the .500 mark — that would be Denver at home on Dec. 3. Add in the injuries, roster shake-ups and now Cutler’s status, and things look bleak at best.
NEEDED ROAD WIN

Put simply, this was a road win that the Buccaneers needed to have after six consecutive losses away from Raymond James Stadium. They’re on the road each of the next two weeks as well, first at Atlanta and then at Green Bay. It will be far from an easy finish, but at least this win may give the Bucs some hope.
THREEPEAT

Fitzpatrick has now won on the Dolphins’ home field as a starter for three different teams. He beat the Dolphins in 2010 while with the Buffalo Bills, in 2015 while with the New York Jets, and now with the Bucs. In 11 appearances against Miami, he’s 6-5.
STILLS’ BIG DAY

Dolphins wide receiver Kenny Stills caught seven passes for a career-best 180 yards — matching the seventh-most by a receiver in Miami history.

Stills’ previous career best was 162 yards at Pittsburgh on Nov. 30, 2014, and he hauled in the 61-yard touchdown pass from Moore late in the fourth quarter to get the Dolphins even.
NO RUN

Take away Damien Williams’ 69-yard run on the second Miami snap from scrimmage, and neither team got a ground game going. Tampa Bay ran the ball 24 times for 53 yards; the Dolphins, without that big Williams run, had 14 yards on 18 carries. Williams’ nine other carries went for a total of 9 yards.

Miami Dolphins

A pack of Miami Dolphins notes as the team begins preparations for Sunday night’s game against the Oakland Raiders:

With Pro Bowl running back Jay Ajayi being introduced in Philadelphia today following his trade Tuesday, the Dolphins are moving on toward finding his successor.

And that successor’s name is Damien Kenyan Senorise Williams Drake Perry.

Coach Adam Gase on Wednesday declined to say the new starting running back will be — perhaps because it might not matter immediately until Kenyan Drake or Damien Williams or Senorise Perry separate from one another and fall into more defined roles.

“We’ll see how it works out,” Gase said. “We’re going to go through practice this week and see what fits. I like the three guys we got, their skills sets. We’ll be able to maximize what they do well.”

So what do these guys do well?

Gase said he was told when he arrived that “when the lights come on on Sunday, [Williams] is one of the guys you want with you.”

The coach added, “he’s done nothing but make plays.”

Williams has rushed 12 times for 32 yards (2.7 yards per carry) without a touchdown this season.

On Drake, Gase said assuming he’ll be the starter is “speculation,” but added, “We feel he fits the mold we’re looking for in that backfield.”

Drake has 10 rushes for 25 yards this season (2.5 YPC average).

And Perry, according to Gase, “has knowledge of this offense. He’s been with me enough to where when you know what a guy can do, there’s a comfort level there.”

So it’s going to be a group situation for now.

“I like the fact they’re able to catch the ball, they’re able to run good routes, they’re able to run the ball inside and outside. They’re physical. It’s something we like their skill sets,” Gase said.

So what’s Gase’s explanation for trading Ajayi?

“I think it was just time for us to move on,” the coach said. “We’ve had conversations about what we’re going to do down the road. We felt this was a good opportunity. We kind of put some feelers out to see where other teams were at. We got some younger players there we felt we’re going to move forward with and that was the decision we came to.”

So are the Dolphins better today than before they traded Ajayi?

“I like where we’re at right now,” Gase said before adding, “We didn’t inquire about anyone else. We’ll see how it goes from here on out but as for right now, I like the group I got.”

Gase’s explanation for ultimately moving on from Ajayi hinted at what I reported the Dolphins felt as reasons for dumping Ajayi but didn’t come out and actually say it.

“We’ve had ups and downs but that’s with a lot of players,” Gase said of Ajayi. “It’s a lot of players and getting on the same page and sharing the philosophy of how we want to do things. He tried to do what we were asking him to do a majority of the time … It was just time for us to go separate ways.”

—–

The Dolphins are 4-3 and coming off a debacle on prime time last Thursday. So changes are afoot in how the team approaches preparations.

“We’re not going to stay the same,” Gase said. “We’re not going to keep doing the same thing and bang our head against the wall. We made some changes with how we’re meeting, how we’re going to walk thru, how we’re going to schedule things, how we’re going to practice. We’re going to make changes.

“I’m not talking about personnel, I talking about the way we’re going about things. The way we’re teaching. They way we game plan. That’s what we should be doing. If we sit here and do the same thing over and over again … we’re really kidding ourselves. We have to find the right way to teach, the right way to learn and find what allows us to execute on Sunday.”

I like this. There’s something to be said for having a conviction about how one approaches work. But when that approach shows itself to be less than perfect, changes and adjustments are in order. So, good.

“When things start to go off track, it’s you job to go find solutions,” Gase said.

—–

Quarterback Jay Cutler is practicing on Wednesday and is scheduled to start against the Raiders. But Gase seemed to draw back from the idea Cutler is definitely going to be the starter.

“We’ll see how he feels in practice, after practice,” Gase said. “Matt took a lot of shots last week and he’s trying to recover from that as well. He’s still a little sore. He took too many shots. We’ll see how this week goes and Matt’s always ready to go and we’ll see how Jay feels.”

Gase said there is no significant chance Cutler can cause further damage to his two cracked ribs if he takes another hit in the area.

“It sounds like we’re going to be ok in that area. I’m sure it’s not going to feel good … We need to do a good job to make sure he’s protected. Hopefully we have a good sense of urgency.”

Jarvis Landry was not traded. And Gase repeated the team’s leading receiver, unsigned and scheduled for free agency in 2018, remains very much in the team’s plan.

Sort of …

“We told him a long time ago he wasn’t going anywhere,” Gase said. “We have a vision for what we want that wide receiver room to look like and we expect him to be a huge part of that. However that works out down the road, that’s hard for me to say because I don’t negotiate the contracts.

“I’ll blame Mike [Tannenbaum] on that one.”

Yes, there’s uncertainty there. But

“I like that group. I like that group a lot. We have a lot of guys that are trying to do it right and will fight the entire game. I think that’s why we see some moments where things look really good. We just have to find ways to improve. We just got to keep being on the details and accountable to each other.”

How quickly a season can change. Just two days ago, the Washington Redskins had a chance to be serious contenders in the NFC East. Now, they’re wondering how many players are physically capable of playing on Sunday.

Seven players suffered injuries in the loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. On a short week against the Dallas Cowboys, Redskins Coach Jay Gruden opted to have just a closed walk-through Wednesday before holding the team’s first practice of the week Thursday.

It’s a depth chart that has been tested often over the last few weeks, and after being bested by the Eagles for a second time, the Redskins’ fortunes have dimmed. Barring a collapse by the Eagles, who have looked like the best team in the league through seven weeks, it will be a daunting task for the Redskins to win the division. Philadelphia is up 2 1/2 games on Washington heading into Week 8, and it also carries an important head-to-head tiebreaker by completing the regular season sweep.

Safe to say there’s plenty to discuss in the mailbag. As a reminder, we switched up the mailbag format from email to Twitter (welcome to 2017). Thanks for tweeting your questions using the #RedskinsWP hashtag.

The Eagles (6-1) are playing so well right now that it’s not even worth looking at the NFC East standings unless they just have a massive collapse. Looking at their schedule though, which includes a home game against the winless San Francisco 49ers on Sunday and a Week 10 bye week, it’s tough to see that happening. The wild card is still very much in play with how bunched up the NFC is with 10 weeks left, though. The Redskins (3-3) are one of eight teams currently at 3-4, 3-3 or 4-3, so the landscape suggests it would be foolish to write them off in October.

However, their roster is in bad shape this week. Four starters along the offensive line, and six of the nine on the active roster, are dealing with injuries. Five defensive backs are hurt. These two spots are very concerning during a portion of the schedule that appeared difficult even without the injuries. Washington is currently 1-1 during the second quarter of the schedule, with a Week 6 victory over the San Francisco 49ers. Its next two games come against the Dallas Cowboys (3-3) and the Seattle Seahawks (4-2).

If the Redskins can somehow walk away with a split, I think that would be the best-case scenario. That’d put them at 4-4 overall, and 3-3 in the conference, with eight games left. But that’s going to be a tough task. While it’s a home game, Washington faces a division rival on a short week coming off a Monday night. The following week, it travels to the opposite coast to play in one of the toughest environments in the NFL. The Redskins will need a lot to bounce their way to pull off a split. We’ll see how mentally tough this team is during this stretch.

The hope is that Washington’s backup offensive tackle will return next week against the Seattle Seahawks. Multiple people say he still could use about two more practice weeks to continue rehabbing a core muscle injury that required surgery following the team’s Week 3 victory over the Oakland Raiders. Gruden said at the time of the injury it would take three to six weeks for Nsekhe to recover. While Washington wishes he would return sooner, it appears that it will indeed take six weeks.

Nsekhe’s injury, which occurred while he filled in for Shawn Lauvao for a snap after Lauvao’s facemask detached from his helmet, came at a bad time for Washington. Left tackle Trent Williams has played through a right knee injury he suffered the following week and will eventually require surgery. He was replaced by backup T.J. Clemmings near the end of the game, and Williams said he may consider resting because it’s not allowing him to move like he wants to.

On top of all this, right tackle Morgan Moses sprained both of his ankles against the Eagles. Along with injuries to right guard Brandon Scherff (back/knee) and center Spencer Long (knee/quad tendinitis), the Redskins’ offensive line is in bad shape.

While the Redskins could sign tackle Vinston Painter, who was on the 90-man roster this summer and the team’s active roster last year, off the Cardinals’ practice squad for depth, Painter would need to be on the active roster for three weeks. If Nsekhe returns next week, it wouldn’t be ideal to have a roster spot dedicated to an extra tackle considering the injuries at other positions. The two most logical options seem to be either keep playing Williams until Nsekhe returns, and run the risk of doing more damage to his knee, or insert Clemmings against a Cowboys defense with 21 sacks (tied for sixth in the NFL). Yikes.

I don’t think those two things are correlated. Washington has tried to use its depth to create different looks. Jonathan Allen went on injured reserve with a foot injury, but he was part of a rotation defensive line coach Jim Tomsula implemented to keep those guys fresh. Outside linebacker Preston Smith hurt his groin, but he’s also rotated at the position.

Deshazor Everett has missed two games with a hamstring injury, but he was splitting time with Montae Nicholson at strong safety. Nicholson keeps hurting his shoulder but plays through the injury. I think his recurring injury can be chalked up to his style of play. Cornerback Fabian Moreau (hamstring) and safety Stefan McClure (hamstring) have almost exclusively played on special teams.

The injuries to Josh Norman (rib), Bashaud Breeland (knee) and Mason Foster (shoulder)? You just gotta charge those to the game.

I would expect more two- and three-tight end sets moving forward, yes. Jordan Reed is getting healthier, as evident by his two-touchdown performance against the Eagles, and Vernon Davis has been a reliable target for Kirk Cousins this season. Niles Paul even had a nice 32-yard reception. Gruden wanted to incorporate more two-tight end looks in the second half, but the game shifted from a 10-3 lead to a seven-point deficit during the final four minutes of the first half.

At the moment, the Redskins have Doctson starting at the “X” spot and Pryor serving as the backup. Jamison Crowder, who has been a slot receiver, moved over as the starting “Z” receiver with Grant. Washington needs receivers that can do the dirty work underneath at the “Z” spot, a role Pierre Garcon did very well during his tenure in DC. Crowder is a technically sound receiver that’s getting healthier after dealing with a hamstring injury during training camp and a hip issue in Week 4 against the Kansas City Chiefs.

When incorporating three wide receivers, look for Washington to go with Doctson, Crowder and Grant moving forward. That’s not to say Pryor has been ousted. He’s still expected to have a role offensively, receiving around 20-30 snaps (he received 30 against the Eagles). Pryor just won’t be heavily used as he was against the 49ers, when he played 61 snaps, because the Redskins want to see more of what Doctson, a 2016 first round pick, can bring and they’ve been productive with two and three tight ends. There’s a chance we could see plays sprinkled in with both Doctson and Pryor on the field, but Crowder is better suited at the “Z” moving forward.
