Redskins Her: Joe Gibbs Brandon Lloyd 1. Not only did the Redskins lose to Philadelphia last week, they also lost safety Sean Taylor for at least a few games with a knee injury. How important is his absence and how might it effect Gregg Williams’ play calling? Lindsay: Ryan: Jets 2. Joe Gibbs was put under the microscope during his Monday press conference about his timeout management and also the play-calling during the Redskins’ goal-to-go debacle in the fourth quarter. What was your take on Gibbs’ timeout strategy and Al Saunders’ decision to call a Clinton Portis run on third-and-goal from the Eagles 7? Lindsay: Ryan: 3. In the last two games, the Redskins have run it 84 times and passed it 57 times. Not very balanced. Does this need to change for the offense to be more consistent? Lindsay: Ryan: 4. Clinton Portis has two consecutive 100-yard games for the first time since the end of 2005. And now, at least last week, the Costumes of Clinton have returned. Has his game returned to form? And are you a fan of his Thursday shtick? Lindsay: Ryan: 5. Redskins receiver Brandon Lloyd broke his collar bone late in Wednesday’s practice. He’s out for six weeks and probably done for the year. Do you see him returning to the Redskins 2008 under any circumstances? And where the Lloyd trade rank among Joe Gibbs’ worst personnel moves since he returned to the team in 2004? Lindsay: Ryan: 6. For the second time in a month, the Redskins are double-digit road underdogs (10.5). Both of you will be in Big D Sunday afternoon. Do the Redskins have a shot or could this be a repeat of New England? Who wins and what’s the score? Lindsay: Ryan: BONUS 7. The Danny Snyder-owned American Music Awards are Sunday night. If you two had to choose a song (or more than one) to sum up the first nine games, what would it be and why? Lindsay: Ryan:
