Rock v. Trung

Talk about the Washington Redskins here. Do you bleed burgundy and gold?

Who would you like the Redskins to use at running back more often?

Yeah we all like Rock after yesterday, but lets see how Rock acts after teams start to prepare for him :up:

Negative vibes man - watch that stuff!

Actually, he has been seen as a running threat on short yardage for several games. Last week he had a good game for us against a good D. Seattle wasn't totally unprepared if you think about it.

I'm on the Rock bandwagon also. The guy punishes defenders and softens up the defense. We need that in a bad way. Our offense need to be able to shell out some punishment, rather than receive all of it. This will pay huge dividends in the later stages of ball games.

The pukes d for example is undersized and can be worn down if they are pounded for 2 1/2 - 3 quarters.

I cant help the way you interpret things. Deal with it fella, thats life. :wink: Like I said we shall see.


When he starts to do what he did yesterday on a consistent basis, I then will be on the so called bandwagon. If he does I will even get some nice rims for my bandwagon. Show me!!!!!!!!! :rock:

LOL - I hear ya....

I just want to feel good about this team after weeks of feeling glum - ya know? :)

I think that Rock can't handle the ball 30+ times per game like SD used to be able to, but then again, there is something to be said with hitting a defense with fresh backs every series or two.

The big question is will Hue Jackson be calling the plays this week. I would like to see where our running game is . I mean at least 25 carries from Rock or Trung. Trung really did not look as good yesterday as compared to previous games and part of his game is skipping, much like Barry Sanders and the he has the ability to be at top speed in two steps.

Stephen Davis is a beaccccchhhhhh!! Glad he is gone :^o :^o :^o :^o :^o ROTFALMAO

And with the ankle injury, one might question whether Trung is at full potential or just pushing himself to come back to help the team. He didn't look like his normal shifty self yesterday... almost all his runs were tentative and straight ahead.

By next week, he should be a bit better and have some of it back.

That's cause he's 4ft 2

But I like him and he has a great name.

agreed...his size may be a plus. He seems to run downhill and get lost behind the OL

and yes, what a cool name

I remember him because the first time I saw him he was doing the gauntlet in the RB drill. The one where the coaches stand with the big pads and try to interfere with the RB coming through them, knock them off balance, etc.

I was actually watching the QB toss the ball around when I heard this WHAP! WHAP! WHAP! WHAP! to my left. The players started hooting and I whipped my head around to see Rock come out of the pad tunnel.

I started watching again to see him come back through the rotation, and again... he knocked some of the coaches backwards as he ran through, not one time losing the ball or his balance. The strongest by FAR to run that drill.

When I saw him up close later I had to absolutely do a double take at the size of his legs. He is short, but he has bigger legs than most OL. I have huge thighs from my bodybuilding days, but I mean this guy was big for such a short man. I hoped from that day we found a spot for him.

I'm glad he is getting to show his stuff some.

and on another note, the smashmouth style that rock plays will wear on defenses as games go on, can be a big help with the blitz problems, if they have to have 8 in the box to stop the run.... just a thought
