Redskins Insider: Random stuff

Redskins Insider

A few players were available to the media before the start of practice at 5.

Marcus Washington got his braces off and was happy about that. No more ortho appointments. Gotta think the prospect of shredding your lips on your braces every Sunday wasn't a whole lot of fun either.

Not an expert but his choppers looked pretty darn shiny and straight to me.

Clinton Portis said that he kind of took the game for granted entering last season, was burned out, and vows to return to the CP of old. Says he is cool with sharing the load, though clearly believes he is the definite starter, and said that if he gets fewer carries that Ladell Betts some weeks, then that's okay, too.

Clinton also conceded that no matter how good he might feel right now coming off shoulder, hand and knee injuries, it won't mean much until he starts taking hits and seeing how his body holds up. He hasn't done anything really strenuous yet. His mental outlook is refreshed as well, he says.

Portis has no plans for more costumes, so it appears that the days of Dolla Bill or over for good.

As for other random observations:

Frosty The Punter must be feeling pretty good these days. Derrick Frost is the only punter on the roster.

Also, Shaun Suisham is being "challenged" by Tyler Fredrickson. Yeah, that Tyler Fredrickson, the one with all those game winning kicks a few years back ... No, seriously, this is a first year kid out of Cal, which explains why the word challenged is in quotes.

Thanks for the info. I know that I am, as well as mostly every other person here, so happy, optimistic, excited, and a little bit nervous thats the long wait is over. The 2007 NFL football season is here! I can't stop smiling.

Haha I am glad for Marcus. I am still thinking about swinging over to camp today. Starts at 5 right? I live about 10-15 minutes away from it.

They're still human, money doesn't buy happiness and it's all relative anyway. I don't know about you but my happiness doesn't equate to how much money I make.

I'd rather be sad, depressed, or what ever and rich than sad and depressed and poor. I know it does not buy you happiness but I see a trend of people blaming these things for last year. Why not just say we had a sh^&y year and this is a whole new season and I'm ready to the past behind us with some winning football. Thats all they need to say.

Ok, I hope that when you said " I hope Moss bounces back to" you mean that he has a better year and not that he has said something like MW and CP.

Re: Redskins Insider: Random stuff

NO more frigging excuses!!!!!!!! I am tired of excuses even if there is some basis of truth of them. Last season is history and the guys got banged up. Also, sorry fellas, they are paid a ton of $$$$$$$$$ to perform to the best of their abilities. For Portis to say his heart wasn't in it is unexcusable. That is like me saying, Oh well, my heart is not in my work today so I will just call in sick, or I will do a shitty job. Eventually, if I did that for a prolonged period of time I would most likely end up losing my job. Not good to hear that kind of talk from a rather handsomely paid RB in the NFL. "Oh my heart wasn't in it so I screwed around!!!" This ranks almost as bad as him defending Vick. Clinton should have just said it sucked getting hurt and he wants to come back full force. Saying his heart wasn't in it should worry you guys. A job is a job, and if you get paid nicely for it you should try your utmost to perform your best.

Re: Redskins Insider: Random stuff

You absolutely have to love Portis. What other back of his caliber would be fine with having the 3rd down back end up with more carries in any given week?

Re: Redskins Insider: Random stuff

I like Suisham,but I wish we had a veteran challenging him,i.e.,Mike V.
I still cant believe that guys out of a job,he was a great kicker
and i dont need to hear Mike V's an ass,blah,blah,blah,heard it all before,I'd still like to have him on the team

Re: Redskins Insider: Random stuff

Some thoughts after the first day of camp:

1. Gibbs press conferences are highly predictable and filled with boilerplate, but he did say one thing yesterday that jumped out at me. When asked whether the offense would resemble the last few games of last year or the more pass oriented start of the season, I expected him to dance around and say something about balance, blah, blah, blah. Instead, he simply said (words to the effect of) "I thought the offense was better the last six games".

2. In spite of the performance of Ladell Betts last year, which was great, I still believe that Clinton Portis is the best football player on this team and if we are to accomplish anything special this year, it will be Clinton Portis who has to lead us.

3. Their are too many ifs for my liking on the defense. If Marcus Washington, if Cornelius Griffin, if Shawn Springs, if Laron Landry. if Andre Carter. I have doubts.

4. If Brandon Lloyd doesn't show a fundamental change in the way he plays fooball, I think we should ship his ass out sooner and not later, regardless of the cap impact which I'm sure will be horrendous. I don't want to limp along with this guy in tow if he's not contributing.

5. If anyone goes to the scrimmage in Baltimore, would you mind asking those Ravens douchebags if, in light of the fact that Micheal Vick is facing serious consequences from the league and the Falcons for killing a dog (allegedly), they have given any thought to doing anything about the fact that Ray Lewis killed a man (allegedly)?
