      On the injury report:
      “Jason Hatcher did not participate. Gabe Miller did not participate. Jordan Reed was full. Trent Williams was limited. Brandon Meriweather did not participate. Keenan Robinson was limited. Full was Chris Baker, Will Compton, Roy Helu, Kory Lichtensteiger and then Trenton Robinson did not participate today because he had an illness.”

      On if fewer touches for wide receiver Santana Moss this season are a function of the talent of the other receivers:
      “Well, I don’t know about that. But yeah, we only have so many balls to go around and unfortunately some of the receivers haven’t got as many touches as they would like to have seen or that we ...

      It's never a "pleasure" to visit Eagles fan boards-their fans are, to put it kindly...weird. Nasty to each other, I mean things can get "testy" here but we don't refer to each other as "Lardass" or "c*nts"-and this is posters referring to other posters-other fan board members, not even other teams fans, coaches, players or anything like that.

      It makes me want to spray hand sanitizer on my keyboard during the Recon visit. Yuck. ...

      On the injury report:
      “[Jason] Hatcher, knee, did not participate. [Gabe] Miller, ankle, did not participate. Trent Williams, shoulder, did not participate. Limited was [Brandon] Meriweather with his toe and Keenan Robinson with his knee. Full was [Kory] Lichtensteiger with his knee, [Will] Compton with his shoulder, [Chris] Baker with his chest and toe, and [Roy] Helu with his toe.”

      On tight end Jordan Reed:
      “He I think was having his first baby today. Congratulations to Jordan.”

      On if defensive end Jason Hatcher will participate this week:
      “I don’t know. We’ll just have to wait and see. It’s given him some problems here, and we’re trying to do everything we can ...

      Head Coach Jay Gruden

      On what he can draw from the first game against Philadelphia:
      “Well, there’s some positives to take from that game. We had some big plays and some good chunks of yardage plays, and unfortunately at the end we had a chance to tie the game or win the game and didn’t get it done in a big-time situation. There were some good things to take from that film. We were competitive obviously, but we’re looking for more than that. We’ve got to finish the deal one time. We’ve got to play in a crucial situation and somebody’s got to rise above it and make a play. Unfortunately, we were unable to do that against Philadelphia. It was obviously a very good game, but we came out on the short end of the stick which isn’t good enough.”

      On where quarterback Kirk Cousins stands:
      “He’s No. 2 right now. He has got to wait his turn and it’s up to Robert [Griffin III] to keep the job. Hopefully Robert does a good job and we don’t have to worry about it. But, Kirk’s been competing every day. He had some really good plays when he played. Unfortunately, we had to make a [No.] 1,2 and a 3 and he was No. 3. Now that Colt’s on IR, he’ll be No. 2.”

      On placing quarterback Colt McCoy on IR:
      “We’re going to put Colt on IR, and we pulled Jackson Jeffcoat up from practice squad. Those were ...

      On the injury report:
      “Barry Cofield, he was full today. He is probable. Jason Hatcher did not participate today. He will be questionable. Roy Helu is going to be out. Brandon Meriweather is going to be out with his toe. Keenan Robinson is going to be out with his knee. Kedric Golston is going to be questionable. DeSean Jackson, questionable. Colt McCoy was full. He’s going to be questionable until he sees a doctor today. And then Will Compton is probable. Chris Baker was limited today. He’ll be questionable.”

      On quarterback Colt McCoy:
      “He’s going to see the doctor this afternoon to get his final deal. That’s why he’s listed as questionable. ...

      The Giants are having, record wise, a year not much better than the Redskins-only one more win-and Giants fans are unhappy.

      "Low Hanging Fruit?" is the title of a thread on one of the Giants fan sites and the theme started out are the Skins a low-hanging fruit for a desperate Giants team.

      The way they've played at times and from what some of the fan comments are saying, could they be low hanging fruit for a desperate Redskins team to pick? ...

With no further hesitations, let’s get right to it. Feel free to offer your own grades, opinions, suggestions, and ideas. Also, we have some questions to close out this fourteenth week of action.
