Re: Bold Predictions:

"SAME MAN, NEW NAME
After three years as Ade Jimoh, the cornerback has reverted to his full name of Adebola Jimoh, at least in the media guide.
"Ade is easier to say, but hopefully people will recognize me by my full name, too," he said. "You guys can call me Adebola or you can still call me Ade. It doesn't matter."
Jimoh said his name means "May God Be With You" in Nigerian. "


Dare we say that someone is going to catch the Adebola virus this year?

Re: Bold Predictions:

somebody call 911 i think my eyes just popped out of my head. taylor jacobs and the nfl have no business being in the same sentence. Now you throw CFL in that sentence and you might be on to something. Here's one for you...this team will only go as far as Brunell takes us PERIOD. I just dont think collins is the answer and as far as campbell right now I dont think anyone knows what he is capable of. Only time will tell. Let me clear something up right now. What has Taylor Jacobs done since he was drafted? the only answer I can come up with is collect a paycheck.

I was of the understanding that in Pro Football you make your own chances.

Re: Bold Predictions:

If someone does catch the Adebola virus it's certainly not going to be Taylor Jacobs. He is immune to catching anything. He's the magic man!

1) I agree with your prediction about Campbell. It's like having a new car in the garage for a year but never have taken it out on the road. He will play some role in the regular season even if Brunnell stays healthy.

My prediction about our QB's: The Redskins fans will be very short with Brunnel this year due to raised expectation. When he has a rough patch this season as every QB does, the fans will be demanding for Campbell. Brunnell is in tough situation, near perfection is expected from him this year.

2) Jacobs prediciton: when the real hitting starts either in the Ravens scrimage or in preseasons games, Jacobs will tail off or get hurt. I hope and wish that Jacobs becomes great, I just don't think he has the toughness to be an every down WR in the NFL.

Daseal - I think people are impatient with Jacobs because so much has been talked about his potential, but he has been weak.

Re: Bold Predictions:

He's a 4th year WR. How long does it take the average WR to develop. At least four years. Brunell is a first option (moss), second option (cooley), 3rd option (portis) type of QB. He throws it away quick. At games I've watched Jacobs get good seperation down field and never get thrown to, something you can't watch and evaluate from home sitting on your couch.

Re: Bold Predictions:

That all may be true Daseal, but the simple fact is he's running out of chances here. Yes it takes WRs a while to develop sometimes, but he hasn't shown anything at all in game situations. Being a training camp hero doesn't get you anywhere in this league, sooner or later he needs to step on the field and make a difference when the bullets are live. All we've heard from him is excuses. The DBs are too fast, he's always hurt, the gameplan doesn't come his way... enough already.

Unless he really impresses the rest of the way he's a likely cut. It's really a simple decision, him or Patten. If Patten is 100% there's no way Jacobs beats him out.

Re: Bold Predictions:

My prediction regarding Brunell is as long as he's healthy and playing well, Campbell won't get a sniff of playing time.

I do however have a lot of confidence in Campbell. Yes he's a complete unknown, but I have a feeling if he's pressed into duty we'll be alright.

Matty while I agree with you and others about Jacobs and his lack of productivity thus far, I think the decision about who to cut between him and Patten comes down to the importance of that roster spot. The 4th, 5th, and 6th receivers (if we keep six) have to play ST. Patten is not a ST player, so I beg to ask the question again; What is Patten going to do on Sunday's if he's on the team? Will we use that roster spot for a guy who will only catch a pass or two here and there, and make no other contribution or use the spot for a more serviceable player? Patten was signed as a free agent, Jacobs a 2nd round DC, which player has the most up-side long term for the position and salry?

Re: Bold Predictions:

some players just can't play in the nfl. we'll see what happens, but my money is on TJ being cut. If campbell can play, it wouldn't be surprising to see him starting some games. Injuries happen quite frequently in the NFL.

I agree about the 4th WR needing to play teams. Patten has done that before and I think they were planning on working him into the special teams mix before he got sick.

upside is probably patten (proven he can have 800 yards and he's relatively cheap, and willing to be a #4 without complaining, i'm sure he'd play ST if he had too). He's fast enough that he could play teams, but putting him there might be risking injury for no good reason. We have lots of good ST player though (shawn springs, sean taylor, etc etc) and our other depth (mccune, doughty, havner) will probably have more than enough guys that keeping 1 non-ST spot on the depth chart won't matter.

and randle el will play special teams...so our 3rd receiver will play it instead of our 4th

gibbs only excused the #1 and #2 the last two years. but i guess if we go 3wide as a base package, then he'd technically be a starter.
