Need to Know: Bye is coming at the right time for the Redskins

Oct 27, 2015, 5:09 AM EDT


Here is what you need to know on this Tuesday, October 27, 12 days before the Redskins visit the New England Patriots.

Tandler’s Take Two Tuesday: Into the bye on a high

One of the topics that is bound to come up in the afterglow of the Redskins’ remarkable, improbably, historic comeback win over the Bucs on Sunday is that it’s a shame that the Redskins are taking a bye after such a big rally to win. Taking a week off will blunt their momentum, this line of thinking will go.

Well, in reality it doesn’t quite work that way. Momentum from game to game is not necessarily a reality in the NFL, at least not in terms of building off of a comeback win. Let’s look at the three times the Redskins came back from 21 points down to win:

—In 1999, they overcame a 21-0 deficit to beat the Panthers in Week 4. They have a bye in Week 5 and beat the Cardinals 24-10 upon returning.

—The Redskins visited the Lions in 1990 and were behind 35-14 in the third quarter. Jeff Rutledge came in at quarterback and led a rally to an overtime win. If any win should build momentum it would be that one. But they went to Philadelphia the following week and lost 28-14. If you’ve been following the team for a while, you’re familiar with that game as the Body Bag Game.

—They followed up Sonny Jurgensen’s greatest comeback, a rally from 21 down to beat Dallas at what was then D. C. Stadium in 1965, with consecutive losses to Browns and Giants.

Yes, that is a small, limited sample size and Sonny and Rutledge don’t play for the 2015 Redskins. But whatever momentum advantage the Redskins might have will be outweighed by the need for the team to return to good health, or at least a reasonable facsimile thereof. Here are some players who have missed multiple game who could return after the bye:

—WR DeSean Jackson (hamstring) seems to be the most likely to return for the Redskins game against the Patriots. He didn’t really have a setback prior to the Jets game, he just had some tightness due to breaking up some scar tissue. He has missed six games since going out in Week 1.

—Nobody is quite sure what is up with Chris Culliver (knee). Jay Gruden has said that an MRI on it was negative and that the issue is not structural. If rest is the prescription he could be ready as he will have missed three games plus the bye week. This will be something to watch when practice resumes a week from tomorrow.

—CB DeAngelo Hall missed his fourth game after what Gruden said was a toe injury that would have him out three or four weeks. But some wiggle room was left in the timetable so it could be longer. In any case, the extra week should help.

—C Kory Lichtensteiger is another injury surrounded in some mystery. Gruden said it was a disc issue and that there is concern about strength on his left side. We never have been given a timetable for his return so it’s also wait and see.

And then there were a couple of injuries that two key defenders suffered during the Bucs game.

—LB Ryan Kerrigan has had surgery to repair his broken right hand. If there was a game on Sunday there is a chance he would have to miss it. There seems to be a pretty good chance he will be back to play New England, although it’s too early to know for certain.

—The most troubling injury of all could be CB Bashaud Breeland’s hamstring. He strained it while he was in the process of chasing down the Bucs’ Doug Martin to make a game-saving tackle. The second-year player has been the glue that has held the back end of the defense together with Hall and Culliver out. He might need to remain that even after the veterans return. We don’t know how severe the injury is but certainly an extra week for it to heal will help.

The Redskins coaches could also use the bye to revamp, or at least tweak, the rushing attack that has been so anemic for the last month or so. Gruden said the coaches would do some self-scouting to clean out some tendencies that other teams have figured out.

In other words, it’s time. The players and coaches have been grinding since training camp started in late July. Even the few players who don’t need a physical break from the game need some mental time off.

We won’t stop grinding here, though. Check here and on for some looks back at the first part of the season and some articles looking ahead not only to the final nine games but to the 2016 offseason as well.


Today’s schedule: Practice 10 a.m.; player availability after practice

Days until: Redskins @ Patriots 12; Saints @ Redskins 19; Redskins @ Panthers 26

In case you missed it

    The defense has been a big disappointment, really, and It speaks volumes that there is no noticeable difference when 3 of the 4 starting LB’s are out. Either depth is good or the starters are just average. Perhaps a change in personnel will shake them all up or force some creativity out of Joe Barry. Thanks to the exciting win no one seems to looking too closely at how yet another team ran roughshod over them.

    • sidepull - Oct 27, 2015 at 7:29 AM

      Yup. Can’t stop the run and cant run. Live by the pass, die by the pass.

      Bye comes a great time. If any of these injuries that have kept some of the starters out for a while now get another weeks rest it would be a welcome site to see any of them back on the field ready to roll. They need help for crying out loud. They can t keep up this smoke and mirrors stuff and hope Cousins arm is going to bail them out or Breeland is going to cover the whole secondary.

      Imagine if you will, Djax, Garcon, Reed, Crowder, and Thompson on the field at the same time. What you gonna do?

      And it would be nice to see a game where Breeland Hall and Culliver actually played together for a few weeks.

      This team has been hurting and the injuries are so significant. I never thought they would have this many wins as every week they lose one or two key players.

      Rest up cuz Brady is for real an cold blooded killer. Decisive, wise and a gamer.

      • renhoekk2 - Oct 27, 2015 at 9:11 AM

        The issue could be as simple as Luavo is a better player than fans give him credit for. Add to the fact that LeRibeus is a drop off from Lichtensteiger and that could explain a lot of the problems. The interior of the OL took a big drop off from the start of the season.

        • ajbus1 - Oct 27, 2015 at 12:43 PM

          I agree. I think Lauvao was a bigger loss than originally perceived.

        • ET - Oct 27, 2015 at 3:17 PM

          Also agree. And while Kory isn’t a Hall of Fame center or anything, he’s much better than a lot of Skins would like to admit.

    • Rich Tandler - Oct 27, 2015 at 7:42 AM

      Should be noted that defense has improved statistically in almost every significant category. Like the rest of the team a lot of improvement has needed but I’d be hard pressed to call the D a disappointment considering where they’re coming from.

      • skinsgame - Oct 27, 2015 at 8:36 AM

        The statistical improvements are in sharp decline. Last week the defense gave up just under 500 yards for the 2nd consecutive game. The run defense is the most troubling aspect where they are one of the leagues worst. And they are completely healthy along the defensive line to top it off.

      • samhuff96 - Oct 27, 2015 at 9:04 AM

        Defense? The Redskins have a defense?

        But seriously, that is telling. I keep reminding people the “Skins lost to
        Tampa last year and it wasn’t close. RG III threw one touchdown and
        two interceptions and Alf the sacred running back ran for 96 yards so
        Bobby boy had significant run support. (That for the people shouting
        for RG III.)

        The Captain did more with no run support and no Jackson. Much better.

        This year Tampa had a better QB.


        • greed - Oct 27, 2015 at 9:43 AM

          bobby boy got pounded behind a horrible o-line lart yr! So did kirk and colt so stop with the idiotic comparison from last season

        • redskinsnameisheretostay - Oct 27, 2015 at 9:43 AM

          The running game soared early and suffered because the passing game has been mostly inept all season. Yet somehow now the running game is holding back the passing game? Give me a break with that spin!

    • redskinsnameisheretostay - Oct 27, 2015 at 9:51 AM

      I guess the other 4 games where the defense kept the team in the game doesn’t matter. I love the one-sided view point when the defense struggles. When it was the offense and Cousins I couldn’t count the number of excuses you and others were providing. Yet the member of the “Kissing Cousins Crew” is all over the defense now. Yes, the defense has had issues the past few weeks however the offense only gave us one half of productive football last weekend.

      • JOHNNY B - Oct 27, 2015 at 4:04 PM

        The defense is better than last year. We could not even stop a team from scoring last year. This year the defense has been making a lot of key stops in the passing game not much on the run. But we have not been blown out yet this year.

      • skinsgame - Oct 27, 2015 at 4:31 PM

        And? Comparing Kirk Cousins to the defense doesn’t make sense. I pointed out the defensive struggles with emphasis on the defensive line because it is where they’re struggling the most and where they the most healthy and with seasoned veterans. This isn’t the same as an inexperienced QB or OL. I’m not making excuses. You’re twisting this, needlessly.

  2. colorofmyskinz - Oct 27, 2015 at 8:29 AM

    We need time to heal wounds. That was s hard game against a poor team. We responded well from such a huge deficit. We need to start strong and finish strong. We need to focus on being a 4 quarter team, not just starting strong or saving it up for third quarter to prove people they can come out if the locker room to play.

    We need a team that can now prove they have 4 quarters. Only 4 quarter teams hi tithe playoffs.

  3. Skulb - Oct 27, 2015 at 8:32 AM

    Well at least this year they have earned a little rest. If they can tighten up the run defense a little and get the running game moving there is a chance of a season in December here. Not that I want to get ahead of myself or anything. I´m already happy there´s a season in November.

    • bangkokben - Oct 27, 2015 at 9:46 AM

      Yep. Made it Halloween. Next stop Thanksgiving.

  4. greed - Oct 27, 2015 at 9:35 AM

    lord knows if there was any team who needed a bye week it was the REDSKINS! Injuries, mental and physical fatigue , and a break from us CRAZY fans and media!

  5. redskinsnameisheretostay - Oct 27, 2015 at 10:09 AM

    The team still has a losing record. A very weak NFC East division is the reason there is still a season in November. I’m happy as any Redskins fan about our current contention status. However, are we really going to paint this as if Cousins and the passing game is a serious weapon that has been carrying this team all season? It’s the mostly inept passing game for 26 quarters of football that is the primary cause of a stalled running game. One great half isn’t going to change that. The defense has had issues stopping the run the last few weeks. However many of the “Kissing Cousins Crew” have given the passing game liberties all season for their performance, so let’s see if the bye will help Redskins turn this run defense issue around. Once we get Culliver and Hall back which looks like it could be after the bye then our coverage team should be in pretty good shape. Who here would have thought of such a notion about our coverage unit at the beginning of the season.

    • goback2rfk - Oct 27, 2015 at 11:10 AM

      I blame Alfred Morris for the poor running game. He just does not look the same for whatever reason. Alfred looks slower, less explosive, not hitting the holes hard enough, and most importantly the 1st defender to hit him is bringing him down. On plays where he used to get 1 or 2 yards he is getting stopped in the backfield for negative yards. I believe they need to bench him and give Jones and Thompson all the work.
      Something is wrong with Morris you can tell by the look on his face. He has not had competition for several seasons at his position and its like he can not compete with Jones and is giving up. Now that someone is there to take his job he is quitting on himself and the team. Thats what is seems like.
      Oh well, moving on from low paid Morris. Its his contract year and I do not see a reason to re-sign.
      It was one heck of a 2012 season Morris one heck of a season. But that was 3 years ago and everyone has forgot.. What have you done for me lately?

      • ifthethunderdontgetya™³²®© - Oct 27, 2015 at 11:37 AM

        But Jones isn’t getting yards either. So doesn’t that indicate it’s the line that is not performing like it did the first few games?

        We lost Lauvao, who was the best pulling guard. Center has been a problem all year. And of course losing TWIll for a game didn’t help.

        • redskinsnameisheretostay - Oct 27, 2015 at 12:21 PM

          I’d like to review some of the games to see how Long as done in Lauvao’s place. I know he isn’t playing at the same level but he seems to be doing okay. Yeah, injury has played a part but typically pass protection suffers more when line injuries mount. I actually think pass protection has done well even with Cousins’ quick release. Maybe the lost of Lauvao has had a bigger impact than I realize. I don’t doubt there has been a drop. It’s just tough to know for sure unless someone breaks it down with some film review.

      • redskinsnameisheretostay - Oct 27, 2015 at 12:17 PM

        I do agree that Morris is not breaking off the initial hits like in the past. I’m somewhat concerned about that as well. However, you can also see the numbers game is working against them on many runs. The holes are not there like they were in the beginning of the season either. The linebackers and safeties are attacking the run lanes more aggressively. Defenses have that luxury often because they are not respecting the passing game.

      • brucefan1 - Oct 27, 2015 at 12:50 PM

        A downturn in Alf ‘s is worth looking into, but I’d consider it a lot more likely if Jones & Thompson were managing to generate even a spark in the running game. (Why can’t they be half the runner that CUZ is?!)

        I agree with those that who have commented that the disruptions along the offensive line have more to do with the problem than Alf’s lack of ability. He does seems injury free n all, right? So it’s probably not that. But there is no denying, either, that he does SEEM a step slower, with diminished “yards after contact” ability.

        I’ll even go back to my earlier untrained speculation that maybe he runs better in that “stretch zone” scheme he made his bones in. If that is the case, then it may be best if he (like Griffin) eventually goes elsewhere, to an offense that better utilizes his skill set

        • bangkokben - Oct 27, 2015 at 2:41 PM

          Bruce, the thing is they still run Alf on stretch zone runs but have a line with little to no experience running it. There are zero cutback lanes, penetration at the start, and none of them result in a positive play. He had two inside runs against the Jets that he got positive yards and his one and only carry in the 2nd half, Sunday, he took a dive five yards up the field. Jay said a little while back that they have different runs for the different backs and I slapped myself in the forehead when he said it. Fortunately, this is the bye and they’re going to self scout and see their tendencies. Umm… let me see.. first offensive play of every game is an outside run from Morris to the right. Not much different on the subsequent series as well.

        • redskinsnameisheretostay - Oct 27, 2015 at 3:34 PM

          The first run had to have been zone blocking but it looked like the Center just lost containment.

    • bangkokben - Oct 27, 2015 at 11:15 AM

      Instead of giving you a thoughtful rebuttal, I thought about once again dropping that #youlikethat bomb because you are channeling your inner TW (not Trent Williams). Usually you make sense in your posts and do a pretty good job of appearing as if you can support the coach’s QB decision, but here is a post from Tandler that doesn’t mention #8 at all and your knee jerk reaction is to dismiss our team’s starting quarterback and disparage the Redskins fans that support that QB. I’m not going to rebut your jumbled thoughts right now because i think this rebuke will suffice but if this post goes to spam, it’s bombs away.

      • timwillhide - Oct 27, 2015 at 8:05 PM

        The guy is just posting the truth that’s why you have no rebuttal. Cousins should feel like a fool yelling you like that? After the multitude of sorry performances he has put up. I mean really scoring on an appointment that gives up on average 2.5 touchdowns a game 31st in that category and let’s opposing QBs on average have a 110.6 passers rating against them. After going 24-0 is laughable. They let us back in that game playing prevent defense. Next game we will see more excuses from you on why Cousins sucks.

        • skinsgame - Oct 27, 2015 at 10:46 PM

          Burns you up that he had a good game, eh? HA

        • Skulb - Oct 27, 2015 at 11:45 PM

          You guys are just completely off your rockers with this stuff. I´m not even going to waste my time trying to argue with you because there´s no arguing with fanatics. You just choose which parts of reality to ignore so you won´t have to change your opinions. All you do is endlessly harp on negatives while ignoring the positives and blaming everything that goes wrong directly on Cousins whether it has anything to do with him or not. It is pathetic but anyway, here are the positives you and your retinue on this page systematically ignore:

          Although far from perfect Kirk now has as many games with 30 or more completions as Sonny Jurgensen had in his entire career, which is four games. Joe Theisman had none. Mar Rypien had one. Joe Montana had 14. This is historic passing accuracy from a Redskins QB for the first seven games of the season. He is fifth in the league in pass completions, ahead of Rodgers with 60 more attempts than him.
          He has led two game winning drives and would have led three if Grant hadn´t slipped against Atlanta. He also led a game tying drive to push that game into OT. This was something you and your disciples loudly insisted that he would never be able to do just a few weeks ago. You were wrong.
          He has rebounded from poor play several times already. Against the Giants he played well in the second half after a difficult start to the game. He responded to the Dolphins loos by beating St Louis, to the Giants loss by beating Philly and to the Jets game by playing one of the best games from a Redskins QB in history against Tampa.
          He is doing all this without a running game now, after its abrupt departure after week 2. He is also doing it with his main deep threat injured for the entire first half of the season and with his main short threat out for two losses you no doubt blamed squarely on Kirk, as is your wont.

          Given the circumstances Kirk has performed far beyond expectations so far, and he is still learning. So keep dragging up his career stats for as long as it serves your preconceptions. Real Redskins fans are supporting the team, and Kirk, in the hopes that he can rise to the challenge and claim the starting job for the next decade. And real Redskins fans don´t need people who prefer to support the third sting QB over the team the way you have systematically done for the last year. Hopefully they will cut your hero when Kirk plays well enough for long enough, and then you can leave with him. I´m counting the days.

        • JOHNNY B - Oct 28, 2015 at 3:43 AM

          Well said!

        • timwillhide - Oct 28, 2015 at 2:37 AM

          You compare his passing completions to an era when they ran more than throw and those players threw the ball down the field not 5 and 10 yards max . How many has he completed to our team down field?

          You supported the 3rd string QB over RG3 last year so what’s the difference? I support the player with the most talented that has done it before.

        • bangkokben - Oct 28, 2015 at 9:31 AM

          “Next game we will see more excuses from you on why Cousins sucks.”
          No. That’s what you do on victories. Your propaganda is what sucks.

  6. gonavybeatarmy - Oct 27, 2015 at 11:53 AM

    This is a little off topic, but PFF gave Morgan Moses a top ranking at OT in week 7. Although they note the sack he gave up, that’s impressive and another reason to believe the organization is trending in the right direction. Identifying talent on the second and third days of the draft and then developing them is a trait of good organizations.

  8. redskinsnameisheretostay - Oct 27, 2015 at 1:15 PM

    The “Kissing Cousins Crew” is a jab at those that lean too hard to protect Cousins even beyond what is sensible. To beat up on the lack of rushing the past four weeks yet ignore the struggles of the passing game that has gone longer is a reach. However, to further ignore that this mostly lethargic passing game might even have some impact when it is clear defenses are attacking the run heavily is sheer hypocrisy. So now we have ones quick to call the defenses disappointing? Assuming we now just need to get the running game going and fix the run defense issue is suggesting we now have a passing attack defenses respect. Have we really established that yet?

    • ifthethunderdontgetya™³²®© - Oct 27, 2015 at 1:48 PM

      It’s not hypocrisy, of course the lack of a serious passing threat hurts the run game.

      Without DeSean, we don’t have a deep threat that opposing D’s have to respect.

      And without Jordan Reed, we didn’t have anyone catching the ball that they feared. I like Garcon, he’s a great guy and solid WR2. But he doesn’t scare defenses.

      You can’t put all that on Cousins. You can put the interceptions on him, sure.

    • colmac69 - Oct 27, 2015 at 3:11 PM

      Banner headline has nothing to do with cousins but you have to mention him…why?

      Running game problems are product of lot things not working….this team is being built to run ball and stop the run period….

      As for Sunday that lethargic passing game had 330 yrds and 3tds…..Yeh it’s not bn great at times but nothing has bn consistent

      Hopefully Jackson back for patriots….with him..Garcon. .crowder along with reed and Thompson that’s scary looking lineup…we get that regular basis we should see some big plays

      Too b fair defense was decent first four games with one takeaway. ..nxt three defence bn poor and got 7 takeaways…strange game at times is it not

      Looking what’s left on schedule u got pats(a)..saints (h)..panthers (a)..giants (h) and dallas (h) nxt five……then bears (a)…bills (h)….win four your 7-7 with games away to philly and dallas……..crucial stretch is btwn giants and bills(3 home inc two div plus bears away)

      Think we 7-7 with last two games we could have fighting chance…

      Or I could b having to much of kirk’s cool aid after sunday

      • redskinsnameisheretostay - Oct 27, 2015 at 3:24 PM

        It had nothing to do with the running game either but that was mentioned as well.

        “As for Sunday that lethargic passing game had 330 yrds and 3tds”

        Really? Do you think it had anything to do with the passing game finally opening up and stretching the field? Something that has been lacking and I’ve commented on routinely since the game after Miami? That’s why I included 26 quarters which by the way is 7 1/2 games. I was at the game to marvel in the difference when receivers starting running deeper routes to give Cousins more field to use. It’s also I have commented about all too often that has impacted Cousins performance. The real question is will they continue to allow Cousins the option to throw more downfield going further. You should be waiting into 7 games and down 24 – 7 before chaning that lethargic passing scheme.

        • redskinsnameisheretostay - Oct 27, 2015 at 3:31 PM

          Restated …”You should NOT be waiting into 7 games and down 24 – 7 before changing that lethargic passing scheme.”

          Anyway that’s me venting over waiting for the passing game to become more aggressive. I just want to see it continue going forward and I’m sure Cousins does as well.

        • colmac69 - Oct 27, 2015 at 4:47 PM

          Keep saying it that bottom line regardless is winning….that’s only real statistic at end of day

          Don’t think there any doubt we get all receiving guys back at same time we will b fine

          Double team Jackson okay…u gonna double reed as well okay…Thompson out backfield…crowder in slot….potential is scary if it all falls into place….

          Fingers crossed

    • hail74 - Oct 27, 2015 at 4:58 PM

      What nickname would you give to those who lean too hard to trash him? Does the passing game need to open up? Yes and we all agree. Is Cousins a future HoF at QB? No and we all agree. The way to stop the skins for three years now has been to flood the box and dare them to win via the pass but only now it’s the QB’s fault? Last year it was poor Rob had a crappy line and a terrible defense. This preseason it was poor Rob had to play against the lions (what’s their record again?) with a 3rd string tackle. Now the mere suggestion that something other than QB on this team needs work and the “Kill Cousins Crew” comes out with pitchforks and feels the need to call everyone who actually enjoys watching this team progress childish names. I may not agree with everything you say on here but generally find you to be intelligent but this post is ridiculous.

    • skinsgame - Oct 28, 2015 at 3:29 AM

      Quick to call the defense disappointing? Quick? I suppose the group of veterans assembled along the defensive line that is getting absolutely run over week after week now is what you deem successful? They started out really well and have gotten steadily worse and it’s an ara of the team once believed to be a strength. It’s a disappointment right now, absolutely.

  9. greed - Oct 27, 2015 at 1:34 PM

    lord knows if any team ever needed a bye week it is the REDSKINS! Mental and physical fatigue , injuries, not to mention us CRAZY fans and media! Rest up boys ya gonna need it

  10. redskinsnameisheretostay - Oct 27, 2015 at 3:16 PM

    I’ve always agreed about Cousins missing Jackson this season and missing Reed periodically has had an impact. The use of lethargic passing game is pointing towards the conservative short passing game the coaches have implemented. It’s great to see them open up the passing in the second half after being down 24 points. However, giving Cousins a larger field to throw has been long overdue IMO.

    • goback2rfk - Oct 28, 2015 at 12:15 AM

      Yeah. Well why are they not using Ross to stretch out the field a little bit. Ross is a burner. He clocked a 40 yard dash time equal to Desean. At Ross’s pro day he clocked a low speed of a blistering fast 4.24 40 yard dash.
      I do not see how Jackson remains on the roster after this season. They can save almost 9 mil on the cap by cutting him. Either Garcon or Jackson will have to go after the year more than likely. I think Jay likes Garcon so I see him staying.
      Desean better do some big things when he returns, if he returns, or he is surely gone.
      Now Jackson is posting pics of his baby like anyone gives a crap? Get your ass back on the field Desean nobody cares about your modeling pics on Instagram or your baby.

      • JOHNNY B - Oct 28, 2015 at 3:50 AM

        First and foremost the Redskins are a family including the fans. Second Ross can’t track the ball as well yet. Give him time he is still the low man and has to earn a starting gig. He is well on his way with his s. Team play.

    Nobody was jumping for joy when they signed Lauvao. His old team was jumpinng for joy somebody took him. Just goes to show you what a little real coaching can do. I think Callahan saw something in Lauvo and what he saw, we saw. I really do feel that his injury is a big reason the backs are not producing. That and the fact we are not stretching the field.

    To all the Morris haters and jones lovers, did you all forget jones had 9 carries for about 20? That’s more carries than Morris and not much yards. It’s much more than our running backs who are all three great actually. It’s the line can’t run block but can pass block. And cousins hasn’t gone deep enough to loosen defense and take 8 out of box. What safety has to cover which of our recievers down field? It’s hilarious. It’s all Morris fault. Get a run blocking line and let’s see how good the two headed monster would b with jones Morris. I’m a jones fan but who has run in last three weeks well? No one because we have no deep threat or run blocking line.

      Also our offensive line is not power blocking which is what we need for jones and Morris to excel. They aren’t shifty fast type backs. Match system to styles of players you have better. Maybe more coaches to blame than backs. And not having a deep threat behind djax to take his place. Bad oversight on player personell.

      And I’m black but darn if I don’t love cousins and can’t stand rg3

      It is not just this year. Morris has been in slow decline since his rookie year of 2012. Like Rg3, Morris has regressed from his amazing rookie season. Archives
