    Have we seen the last of JUNIOR GALLETT?

    With the signing of local product LYNDON TRAIL from NORFOLK STATE we may have. If TRAIL meshes with the defense over the course of this season, he may very well be the replacement in 2016 for the injured GALLETT.

    McCLOUGHAN has to be concerned over the nature of GALLETT’s injury. An Achilles-type injury could rob JUNIOR of his phenominal burst on pass-rushing schemes. And certainly, his contract will be club friendly compared to JG’s next season.

    Stay tuned……..

    Looks like anybody we insert into the game at positions of weakness soon become an injury casualty – TE, CB. I wonder if opposing teams exploit this by purposely trying to injury those manning the positions until inept players are in the game at which point they backoff.

    The hit on ROMO which broke his collarbone come to mind. The defensive players are definitely being taught to flatten on anyone prone and on the ground whenever they can legally do so. And this is definitely a league-wide symptom. It can be observed universally amongst the NFL clubs.

    Interesting read from JAY GRUDEN regarding the bubble screen to JAMISON CROWDER which was stuffed.

    I looked at my wife and said, ” the REDSKINS had to score there, and they will lose this game.” The play call was too conservative. Needed to go for broke. “You’ve got to know when to hold ‘um, know when to fold ‘um……..”

    Players not the only ones learning this season.

    REDSKINS now 2-4 with i/3 of the season in the record books.

    In every game, the good guys have been in control at half-time, but lose control in the third period.

    The period after half-time was a tremendous strength under JOE GIBBS IN THE DIM PAST.

    I have one word for being humiliated after half time……….’coaching’………..or in this case, lack thereof.

    A clear indication that GRUDEN, McVEY, and BARRY just don’t cut it when the game is on the line.

    Notes on game #6:

    BAUSHAD BREELAND had a whale of a game as did the special teams. Congratulations to both.

    And I thought QUINTON DUNBAR and KYSHOEN JARRETT each distinguished themselves on occasion as well.

    The O-line guys get kudos considering NSEKHE had a first start, LONG and MOSES are second year players, SCHERFF was constantly being face-masked by the defense and a rookie, and LeRIBEUS was a back-up I presonally hoped would not be on this squad in 2015.

    Good to see RASHARD ROSS into the line-up in the slot. His speed is needed.

    TOM COMPTON I guess is too tall and light to play guard. Maybe by next season he can be the DUNBAR of 2016 and become an adequate blocking TE.

    But let’s look for a moment at next year’s draft.

    Assuming JACKSON, ROSS, GARCON, #12, and GRANT are back at wide-out, we need a TE in the first or second round in 2016 to supplant PAULSON.

    PAUL, pick, and COMPTON/CARRIER may just be the ticket.

    GOLDSON is beginning to play well at FS. TRENT ROBINSON is solid, but small. JERON JOHNSON is beginning to play solid ball……finally. And JARRETT will be a good player by next season.

    A second high pick should be one of the safety positions.

    CB are improving and by next season we may be set with CULLIVER, BREELAND, HALL, ROGERS, and BLACKMON although HALL is waning.

    TRAIL and GALLETT may supplant MURPHY who is struggling at OLB.

    ILB looks good with COMPTON, RILEY, SPAIGHT, and ROBINSON.

    D-line has too many one-year contracts, and I can see the need for a GOLSTON replacement.

    His was the hole attacked by the JETS when they scored late in the third. He was blown off the ball in a goal-line situation, the only lineman who was.

    A pick here is necessary.
