Redskins Quarterback Hits Should Concern the Manning Brothers

For the second straight week, the Redskins knocked the opposing quarterback out of the following week’s game. Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers suffered a concussion after a hit in overtime. Head coach Mike McCarthy would only say that Rodgers might miss the Miami Dolphins game.

Um, yeah. Andy Reid said Michael Vick might miss a few games after the ‘Skins sandwiched Vick in the first quarter of game four. Kevin Kolb started for Vick against San Francisco Sunday. It appears Kolb will start for Philadelphia this Sunday. We can’t be sure because, well, Reid dances around things he doesn’t want to discuss as well as Mike Shanahan does. For evidence of that, see the story Andy Reid Plans To Start Some Sort Of Super Quarterback This Weekend.

Coach-speak. You can always believe what a coach says about the status of his players.

Coaches obfuscate. Video does not lie. That’s why what happened to Michael Vick and Aaron Rodgers when they played the Redskins should interest to Peyton Manning and his little bro’ Eli. The Redskins play Peyton and the Indianapolis Colts this Sunday. Eli and the New York Giants are on the schedule December 5 and on January 2, 2011.
