Need to Know: Redskins stock up-stock down vs. Ravens

Here is what you need to know on this Sunday, August 30, six days before the Washington Redskins make their final cuts.

Stock up/Stock down vs. Ravens          

We are three days away from the first round of cuts and six days away from the final cutdown. Plus there are plenty of depth chart spots to be decided. It’s getting very late and here are some Redskins who made positive and negative impressions against the Ravens.

Up—WR Jamison Crowder: He made his pro debut in style, alertly plucking a tipped ball out of the air and gliding in for a touchdown.

Down—OT Morgan Moses: A whole lot went wrong on Terrell Suggs’ interception of a Kirk Cousins bubble screen including Moses’ failure to cut Suggs so he couldn’t make the interception. Run blocking from the right side first unit was not too good.

Up—WR Rashad Ross: He had six catches for 56 yards and two touchdowns. The numbers really don’t work for him to stay on the roster but he is going to make it very difficult for the Redskins to cut him and he might be earning a job elsewhere.

Down—FS Dashon Goldson: Twice he had a bead on Ravens receiver Steve Smith and twice he was unable to make the tackle. One misplays resulted in a first down, the other in a 63-yard touchdown (David Amerson also had a shot at Smith on that one). Your last line of defense has to make those plays.

Up—OLB Jackson Jeffcoat: His roster chances were slim until Junior Galette was lost for the season last week. Jeff coat responded with an interception that set up a touchdown and a sack/strip of Matt Schaub.

Who did I miss? Let me know in the comments.

Redskins release Dashaun Phillips, again

Redskins release Dashaun Phillips, again

Cornerback Dashaun Phillips had a very short return to the Redskins’ active roster.

Phillips, who started the season as the nickel cornerback before being benched and eventually released and moved to the practice squad last month, was re-signed to the roster on Friday. He made the trip to Arizona but he was inactive for the game. The Redskins announced today that he has been released again.

It is possible for Phillips to return to the practice squad if he clears through waivers.

The transaction clears a roster spot for the return of offensive tackle Trent Williams, who has been suspended for the last four games.

Jamison Crowder's touchdown dance was better than his touchdown

Jamison Crowder's touchdown dance was better than his touchdown

Among all the darkness and depression that has followed after the Redskins' 31-23 loss to the Cardinals on Sunday, one bright, shining light has emerged: Jamison Crowder's touchdown celebration.

Late in the third quarter, the second-year wideout was on the receiving end of a 26-yard Kirk Cousins strike, which put his team in the lead on the game's scoreboard by three. However, it's what he did post-catch that put his team in the lead by a far larger margin on the swagboard.

Feast your eyes on this dance, and if you've already seen it, feast your eyes on it again. And again. And AGAIN:

Do you see how much Juju he put on that beat? And did you catch how he gave the ref a little somethin'-somethin' right at the end of the sequence? Calling that flawless would be an insult to Crowder.

Apparently, Jay Gruden was heard screaming at his players in the locker room as they were processing the matchup's result Sunday night. Is it possible he was just loudly complimenting Crowder's moves?
