Need to Know: Pryor reduces Redskins' margin for error

Need to Know: Pryor reduces Redskins' margin for error

Here is what you need to know on this Sunday, September 29, the day the Redskins visit the Raiders.

Redskins-Raiders quick hits

1. The Redskins still should be able to beat the Raiders even if Terrelle Pryor plays quarterback for Oakland. But having Pryor in the lineup takes away most, if not all, of the Redskins’ margin for error. If they commit the same types of mental mistakes they did against the Lions, they could well be going into the bye staring at 0-4.

2. I have never seen so much attention paid to eight snaps but I guess it is news if Iron Man London Fletcher sits out even a few snaps without being injured even if he is 38 years old. He took eight plays off against Detroit with Nick Barnett filling in for him. Mike Shanahan was asked bout it twice, Fletcher was asked about it as were Jim Haslett and Barnett himself.

3. Something tells me that Robert Griffin III isn’t going to learn how to slide properly any time soon. I’m not sure you want him to lead with the repaired knee, anyway. As long as he gets down without getting hurt or losing the ball it doesn’t have to look pretty. And it probably won’t.

4. Although he is listed as questionable, it would be surprising if Jordan Reed is active today. He didn’t look very good in the portion of practice that reporters could see on Friday and it seems likely that he will sit out a week after taking a helmet to his thigh against the Lions. It will be a big game for Fred Davis if he can play (questionable, ankle). After playing just 16 snaps against the Packers and missing last week’s game with that ankle, this could be Davis’ opportunity to make a case that he should get more playing time. A six-catch effort for 75 yards and a touchdown would do his stock a world of good.

5. It’s hard to see the Redskins all of a sudden busting out and playing a great game today although you never know. They played pretty well the game after they fell to 3-6 last year. They beat the Eagles 31-6, posting by far their largest margin of victory of the season. Griffin had just one incomplete pass and he posted a perfect quarterback rating. The Redskins’ defense sacked Nick Foles four times and picked him off twice. LeSean McCoy rushed for 45 yards on 15 carries before being knocked out of the game with a concussion. The Redskins will glad accept a similar result today.

The Redskins newest coach has a rap video in his honor

The Redskins newest coach has a rap video in his honor

On Monday morning, the Redskins made several new coaching hires official, including Jim Tomsula as the new defensive line coach.

Tomsula was out of football in 2016 after serving as the 49ers head coach for the 2015 season in which the team finished 5-11.

Despite struggling as a head coach, Tomsula gained an odd, if not heavy cult following. It made little sense considering he has the look and demeanor of someone who was put on this earth to coach football and coach football only. But through the glories of the internet came this:

The Jimmy Tomsula rap song.

It's just a demo, and I suppose the full version could be out there somewhere since this song is over a year old. But there's something hypnotizing about 60 consecutive seconds of "Open up my shirt like im Jimmy Tom-Sula."

How long before we begin hearing this song at FedEx Field on Sundays?
