Predictions on starting lineup
not much goin on in football right now, so im gonna make a predction to who i think should start, like to compare others also...Assuming Noble isnt ready also
HB-Sea Port (Portis)
CB(for nickle packages)- Harris
Well I love Ramsey but I think Mark Brunell starts game one. Also, I'm going with Haley at DT and Daniels at DE, with Upshaw coming off the bench
And Bowen at SS
TO hell with that Patrick Ramsey is gonna start, because he is a star and Brunnel is a gimp.
anyway... i think smoot hit it on the head, yet i think we have a few more... koz at H-back and rasby at tight end. baxter in two tights... ralph brown and bauman share nickel while harris heals during season
I also think that Brunell will get the nod at QB to begin the season. Even so, I wouldn't be surprised to see Ramsey finish it.
I think that an as-yet undetermined DT will start next to Griffen. I'm hoping we will trade for one, which brings me to...
I think Thrash might end up as the no. 2 receiver with McCants and Taylor battling for the 3rd spot, and Garder traded away to another team.
i dont think we will get any trade value for rod in a player for player trade, especially those postions
to many teams looking for solid dt's, so we wont get but another avg dt for him. haley should do ok along with salave'a and noble very slowly easing his way back... but williams likes beef and lots of it in his dt's. thats why i pick haley for the start of the season

is harris hurt? when did that happen?
I love Ramsey but I think Brunell's experience and accuracy will win out.
[QUOTE=smootsmack]is harris hurt? when did that happen?[/QUOTE]Harris hasn't participated in any of the offseason drills, as he is still recovering from a torn tendon in his knee that he sustained during the playoffs. He had been suffering from knee tendinitis for most of the 2003 season.
Tendon injuries and tendonitis tend to linger and flare up frequently, so the Redskins signed him to a deal that is laden with incentives based on his health. I suspect he'll probably be limited in the preseason as a precaution.
Thanks for that update Crisp. Never like to see a Redskin get hurt but I imagine this has opened the door for Ade Jimoh to really step it up and claim that nickelback spot, right Crisp?

DAMN RIGHT!!! GO ADE, GO!!!
I see a couple obvious, glaring problems with the original post on this thread. First, Koz is competing for the H-back spot, not blocking TE. So the 2 TE's you have there are not going to work. Rasby seems to have the edge right now on the blocking TE spot. Second, of the 3 WR's you have there is not one "possession" WR (as in Art Monk). There will be one. Probably McCants, but Thrash [I]could[/I] play that role - not Jacobs or Mr "Drop-the 3rd-down-pass". Speaking of Gardner, he will be either WR #2, or traded, or collecting splinters. I am betting on a trade, with a chance at the bench.
Also, it would seem that due to experience, past success, and Gibbs' love for older veteran QB's, Brunell has a very strong advantage for the QB job.
Yeah someone mentioned it before, but lets get back to SS. I thought undoubtedly it would be Bowen, not Ohalete, does anyone else think iffy should get the nod over Bowen?
You're right about Koz, John. He's definitely more on the H-back track than the blocking TE role. In fact, if you read Nunyo Demasio's chat transcipt ([url="http://discuss.washingtonpost.com/wp-srv/zforum/04/sp_sports_demasio060704.htm"]http://discuss.washingtonpost.com/wp-srv/zforum/04/sp_sports_demasio060704.htm[/url] ), he seems to feel that Koz could be the starting H-back, instead of Sellers or Cooley. His experience definitely gives him an edge going into training camp, but I'm not sold on his athleticism. Sellers and Cooley bring a combination of size, versatility and athleticism to the role that could make the H-back position a very special weapon in this offense.
As far as the wideouts, I could definitely see Gardner losing his #2 job by mid-season, if not by the end of the preseason. McCants is definitely going to see more playing time, and I think Gibbs would like to see him develop into a reliable possession receiver and red zone threat. But that's not a given. Much like Gardner, he has the physical tools, but his focus and determination have been suspect at times. McCants also sat out much of the offseason work with a shoulder injury. Thrash and Jacobs bring the focus and work ethic that Gibbs adores, so they represent significant wildcards in that respect; plus Thrash has tremendous experience, and Jacobs has loads of potential.
One thing's for sure: the logjam at wide receiver presents Gibbs with a conundrum that a lot of coaches would love to have.
I still think that Sellers will start the season at H-Back. What he may lack in experince he makes up for in his size and athleticism.
