Redskins Giants Fourth Quarter

Redskins Giants Fourth Quarter

Good job by the defense, turning a second and one into a fourth and one and a punt. Jacobs got stonewalled twice and the Redskins have some life as the fourth quarter starts.

11:09—The teams exchange three and outs and with still plenty of time left, the Redskins still have a chance. The New York running game still is spotty, although both Ward and Jacobs have ripped off some pretty good runs in the second half. As long as Manning has to keep throwing, the chance for a pick is there.

9:26—The chances just got a lot dimmer as Portis gains nothing on fourth and two, giving the Giants the ball back at the Washington 40. Even if the Giants go nowhere and punt, it will be a long field for the Redskins to negotiate. By the way, the imagination went away on that play, just a straight dive up the middle.

FG Carney 39
Giants 23, Redskins 7

Just two touchdowns and two two-point conversions to send this one into overtime.

3:25—The final, final chance goes awry then a fourth-down pass falls to the ground. There probably should have been a pass interference call on it, but it's not worth getting worked up over at this point in time.

I'm going to go ahead and wrap this up early, assuming that the final will remain as it is now, so that I can get downstairs to the locker room. I'll update via Blackberry if necessary.

Final Score
Giants 23, Redskins 7

Report: Redskins sign CB Tharold Simon to futures contract

Report: Redskins sign CB Tharold Simon to futures contract

Looking to add depth to their secondary, the Redskins reportedly signed former Seahawks and Cardinals cornerback Tharold Simon on Monday, according to ESPN’s Field Yates.

Arizona claimed Simon off waivers after the Seahawks released him following the first week of the regular season. He played in nine games for the Cardinals and was inactive for his final two with the team, which then released him in December.

A fifth-round pick for the Seahawks in 2013, Simon was signed to a future/reserve contract, allowing him to compete for a roster spot during training camp and offseason workouts.

He is the 11th player to sign a futures contract with the Redskins.

Before joining the Raiders, Tarver coached in college for five years before the 49ers hired him as a quality control coach. He worked his way up to become the outside linebackers coach, a position he held from 2005-2010. Scot McCloughan was the GM of the 49ers while Tarver was coaching there.

After a year as a defensive coordinator in the college ranks at Stanford, Tarver was hired as the Raiders’ defensive coordinator. He was a defensive assistant for the 2015 49ers and he was out of football last season.
