      O.K. it's official, the Redskins are no longer "the most disrespected team in the NFL" by fans of other teams.

      As you might guess, Falcons fans are flying high at 4-0 with a couple of major wins, the second half demolishing of the Cowpukes and the butt-stomping they administered to the Texans. And, yes, they're pretty sure of a win against the Skins.

      But, there were, perhaps grudgingly given, concerns about the Redskins as an opponent-something ...

      Head Coach Jay Gruden

      Opening statement:
      “Did not participate: [Chris] Culliver, knee; [DeAngelo] Hall, toe; Jordan Reed, he’s in the concussion protocol. Limited was DeSean Jackson and Perry Riley. And then, full were [Ryan] Kerrigan, [Kory] Lichtensteiger, [Spencer] Long, [Pierre] Garçon, [Trent] Murphy, [Kedric] Golston and [Josh] LeRibeus.”

      On his level of optimism for WR DeSean Jackson’s chances of playing this Sunday:
      “Well, we know how much he means to our offense. It would definitely help, but it’s also something that we have to see. You know, it’s something that we can’t rush him back because we don’t want this thing to be a reoccurring, reoccurring incident. He got a little bit of work today. He’s in the weight room right now working and we’ll just have to see tomorrow what he can do.”

      On his level of optimism for LB Perry Riley, Jr.:
      “I feel pretty good. You know, I think he’s going to get a couple good days at practice then we’ll gauge it from there. But I think that today, he looked good [in] the limited work that he did. Tomorrow, he’ll get more reps, and then of course Friday and then we’ll make a decision. But I think he felt pretty good on it so we’re very optimistic with Perry.”

      On the difference in the team’s efficiency on third down this season:
      “On offense, we’re making obviously protection, number one. Number two, we’re staying in makeable — we’re not having as many third-down-and-12s and 11s. We’ve had about 16 of them, I think, this year in four games. A lot of them were penalty related. We finally converted two third-and-longs last week, but we’ve been very ...

      Head Coach Jay Gruden

      Opening statement:
      "Jordan Reed had a right knee MCL sprain and an ankle sprain. Also, he's in the concussion protocol. [Ryan] Kerrigan had a hip pointer. He should be OK. [Trent] Murphy, glute contusion. He came back and played. [Pierre] Garcon had a knee mild sprain and inflammation, looks to be OK. [Chris] Culliver managed his knee inflammation OK, still a little sore. And then DeSean [Jackson] we'll try to get a little bit more out of him this week, see what he can do. He'll be day-to-day. And [DeAngelo] Hall is in the early rehab stages of his toe. And [Perry] Riley we're hoping to see back in practice Wednesday."

      On his level of concern for TE Jordan Reed's knee injury:
      "About his knee? I don’t think his knee is… He hurt his knee in the end of the first half, came back and played with his knee."

      On his level of concern with Reed’s concussion: ...

      Not really a ton of game commentary but what there is is kind of interesting in some ways.

      There are some surprising similarities between Redskins fans and Eagles fans going on.

      Right now, Chip Kelley is about as highly regarded by Eagles fans as Jay Gruden is by Redskins fans.

      They ain't delirious about their HC either, in other words.

      Bradford and Cousins are pretty similar in fan regard as well; actually ...

      Chips Ahoy

      It was with more than meager ounce of elation I observed the Eagles fall flat on their beaks the first two games of this season. After all, who could resist a snicker or two at last year’s NFC rushing champ DeMarco Murray averaging a whopping 1.6 FEET per carry. These weren’t the result of heartbreaking last drive collapses like those that afflicted the Giants – this was full blown ineptitude. Hallelujah! This ...

      The Giants. Why did it have to be the Giants?

      First of all, Thursday night games are a disaster to predict, full of sloppy and uneven play (thanks Roger!) due to lack of rest. Second, I mean, it’s the Giants. YOU try predicting what will happen. It seems like we have lost a lot more than we’ve won in the last ten years, which is probably because that’s true. The last four belong to them, and if you go back further it doesn’t ...

      Well, Giants fans are pissed at Tom Coughlin. Again.

      They're pissed at Eli too. Again.

      Not to mention their OL, LBs secondary and a few other things.

      An 0-2 season start will do that to you.

      Especially if you set an NFL record by being the first team in NFL history to lose your first two games by blowing a double-digit

      lead in the fourth quarter.


      Now they play the ...

      Head Coach Jay Gruden

      On injuries:
      “Chris Baker returned today, he’s full. Did not participates were DeSean [Jackson], Perry Riley [Jr.], Justin Rogers, Martrell Spaight. Tom Compton was limited. Morgan Moses was full. D-Hall, Terrance Knighton, Shawn Lauvao were full. Kory Lichtensteiger was full. And [Jason] Hatcher did not participate today, rest reasons.”

      On if the team has made a roster move to make room for CB Chris Culliver on the active roster:
      “Yeah, we’re going to put Spaight on injured reserve."

      On if he is disappointed in losing a second rookie draft pick for the season as the result of a concussion:
      “Well, we’re disappointed but we mainly want to make sure he gets healthy. He plays a very tough position – linebacker, obviously – and we want to make sure he is fully recovered. With these things you just never know how long. I think we’re doing the right thing in that regard as far as letting him sit out this year. He’ll be ready to go for offseason program.”

      On if the protocol for monitoring concussions has become stricter this year:
      “I think there’s more awareness obviously. With more awareness comes… it is more strict. I think that everybody involved – trainers, doctors and the independent people – are aware of the importance of taking time with these injuries and making sure the players are fully recovered. That’s what we’re doing with Spaight.”

      Head Coach Jay Gruden

      On how the new practice schedule that gives players Monday off is working out:
      "It’s working out good actually. The players have a mandatory day off. It used to be Tuesdays. We’d bring them in Monday after the game for treatment and a little workout and watch film. We just flipped the days, gave them Monday off – where they could still come in and get their treatment. And now Tuesday they come in, we’ve graded the film. It gives us some extra time to grade the film. Everybody has cooler heads, watch the film, grade the film, and then we can also introduce our next opponent on Tuesday instead of doing everything on Wednesday. It helps Wednesdays out, it helps Tuesdays out. It’s worked out good so far. It’s only been one time, so…"

      On injuries:
      "Obviously DeSean [Jackson] will be out. Terrance Knighton was limited today. Justin Rogers did not participate. [Martrell] Spaight did not participate. [Tom] Compton was limited. Full ...

      You would think the Rams would be flying high and brimming with confidence after their surprise win over the Seahawks.

      Well, they are...sort of. Of course Seattle's not-all-that-overwhelming OL opened Wilson up

      to getting sacked six times but the Rams did play a good game against them and pulled off the overtime win.

      Is the confidence gained in this win causing them to think the Redskins will be a cakewalk?

      Maybe ...
