    Dwight Smith sitting tonight.

    I just heard it on ESPN pregame, he is inactive, but not injured. Childress announced it, Pedro Gomez(I think) reported it. He said it is probably a disciplinary thing, so either way he's not playing.

    My only guess is this goes back to his indecent conduct charge, but I thought that had all blown over.

    Who will play SS tonight?

    I expect safety will hunter to start after all he is the most experienced behind smith.I dont think they would start a raw rookie such as blue on opening night on national television

    That sucks!

    I understand his reasoning but we are thin in that position with Tank being hurt and are you punishing him or the team?
    What we've got here is failure to communicate.

    Re: Dwight Smith sitting tonight.

    That in my opinion is a dumb move by Childress.. You don't sit a impact safety like Dwight Smith in your season opener on Monday Night Football against a team like the Skins..

    Like Whack said, is he punishing the player, or the team? In this sense, he is punishing them both, plus us fans.. Stupid move by our new HC.. If we lose tonight, he will have himself to blame for it..

    Childress is certainly sending a message to the entire team to keep themselves in order or else I hope it works out for the best.

    #1. We're not gonna lose tonight.

    #2. When we don't lose tonight, we don't know who's fault it would be for the win, whether or not Smith plays, it would more likely be the offense.

    Sorry if #2 doesn't make any sense, I was trying to stick with what #1 said.

    They said on ESPN that it will be Greg Blue who will start for us.
