Thanks, Daseal!

Ade is a super-nice guy, and I really enjoyed meeting him and talking with him. He seemed genuinely excited about the idea of checking out the website and dropping us a line once in a while. He was jacked to find out there's a guy who actually has the screenname "Ade Jimoh Fanclub" on our website. I'll try to stay in touch with him and remind him to pay us a visit.

That was very cool.. Ade sounds like a very smart, humble kid who is going to work hard. I'm rooting like hell for him!

Good job joe. I too, am rooting for Ade. Maybe if Ade makes it bigtime, he can buy out a section in the stands for us warpathers.

Thanks so much, offiss. Believe me, it's worth every minute of the weekend to get these reports to you guys. Of course, my wife might think otherwise, bless her heart. If you want to thank someone, thank her-- her screenname is 'gibbsgirl', I think.

I think your comparison of Cooley and Jones is pretty accurate as far as their mobility goes. Jones was a very nimble guy for a tight end, and was always able to weave his way through the crowd and find the opening in the zone. Cooley has the same kind of dexterity and fluidity of motion. But Cooley is also a lot bigger than Jones in terms of mass, which makes that fluidity both surprising and deceptive. They're about the same height (Jones 6'4, Cooley 6'3), but Jones weighed in at a trim 230 lbs, whereas Cooley brings a beefy 265 lb load with his blocks and runs after the catch. It's that combination of blocking prowess, mobility and bruising power as a receiver that make him ideal for the H-back position.

As far as Shockey goes, I don't know if Cooley has that kind of playmaking ability-- we won't know that until the pads are on-- but I will guarantee you this: you'll never see Cooley making a fool of himself in the spotlight. This kid is a Gibbs-type player through and through; he's humble, unassuming, intelligent and studious. He's that All-American kind of guy that Redskins fans will be proud of-- both for his play and the way he conducts himself.

Joe Bugel was raving about the kid's ability to block and break tackles on the run after the catch-- he's going to be one of Buge's "slobberknocker" guys-- and when Shawn Springs tried unsuccessfully to wrangle Cooley after one catch he made in practice, Springs just started laughing, yelling, "God, this guy's big!"

Once again, a superb job, Joe!

I was especially pleased to start hearing about Springs. His acquisition has been over-shadowed by things of late, but he is a very important piece to the defensive puzzle. How did he look to you? Does he seem healthy?

Any update on Noble?

Thanks!

Thanks, JW. Springs' return to practice was pretty quiet. I don't see any problems with his movement all. I think he's kind of easing himself back into the groove, and not trying to overdo it. He's still got to get his legs back, as far as conditioning goes, but he'll probably be going full-tilt by the time the next minicamp rolls around. I'd expect to see more out of him then. He seems really happy to be a Redskin, though, and is fitting in very well with his teammates. He's a very personable guy.

Noble is still walking a little gingerly on that surgically repaired knee, and has a very slight limp. But that's pretty amazing, considering how completely destroyed that knee was. He's very optimistic about his recovery, and expects to be ready to go full-speed by training camp.

Great Job Joe!

From that interview, and his reaction, you would never guess that Ade Jimoh is really the man behind the Ade Jimoh Fan Club poster here! Great interview, and a great bit of acting on his part! With five or six spots available at the DB position, he may have a place yet!

I wonder who the two guys were that HOF Coach Gibbs seemed really impressed with? I hope they were at DE/DT!

Crisp-
I don't post much. But I read THE WARPATH every day. You've done an excellent job reporting and giving us incredible sound bytes. You're coverage is much better than that of the Washington Post and Richmond TimesDispatch. Maybe it's because of editors... Thank you so much for your time spent and sharing with all of us. I did get season ticks this year in the LL and still wondering when Crisp is gonna come down to Sticky Rice have some sushi while I play Redskins SB victories on the 8'x8' screen!?!?! Thanks and hope to meet ya soon!
