This is true! It's another example of a player needing time to develop. It has paid off with both Campell (at least so far) and McIntoch.

Not really saying he did...but you don't throw a rookie out there when he doesn't know what he is doing.
He didn't perform, so he sat until he could. They did the right thing with Rocky in terms of his progression.

From what I saw of Rocky tonight, I'm ready to take back everything I've said about him.

He was playing lights out.

Re: Rocky McIntoch Appreciation Thread

I am not very convinced that a guy can go from totally lost, as he supposedly was, to looking this good in one off season. If he was really that lost and has now shown the sudden ability comprehend and excute so well then I put that previous inability more on the coaches. I wondered why they canned Lindsey and not Jackson. Now I can tell why. Apparently Dale Lindsey sucks at life. With this much ability they needed to figure out how to get him on the field instead of burying him with scheme and denigration to the point of complete shutdown.

Remember, it's still just preseason...although I do expect Rocky to have a good year.

Yeah I should preface all my posts with that. One or two good games do not make a great player. He still needs to prove over time.

Still, he looked pretty damn good tonight. Good in the 'Pretty obviously he can be a playmaker' way.

Re: Rocky McIntoch Appreciation Thread

I just sense this aggressiveness with our 1st team defense. and I truly feel I am becoming an "Offiss" type of fan when it comes to Rocky McIntoch. LOL.

I felt more like it was just our defense in general. I guess specifically, GW seems to have hired Magnum PI over th off-season to find the agressive bitch-slapping D we had before last year. I am actually in some sort of shock realizing how bad we were and how it just came out of nowhere. This is why I am not a coach(among a multitude of other reasons of source), I am simply not keen enough to understand exactly why were sucked so bad last year compared to the years before and apparently this year. It is stupid early, but still, our defense looked crapalicious right out of the gate last year from pre-season snap one. Soft and unfocused. No aggression. WTF?

I think it comes down to two things: Our DL being relatively healthy and depth.

I am picturing Tom Selleck running around Redskins Park in a Hawaiian shirt.....LOL!

Re: Rocky McIntoch Appreciation Thread

Rocky did look very good last night ! He have great speed , and lets hope it translates to the field in September . As far as Lindsey and Holdman , Im sure if G Williams thought Rocky would have been an upgrade < last year > , he would have put him on the field , he has the final say , not the position coach . On Holdman , no team has 11 pro bowlers , had our DL and Db's played like they did last night , WH . would have been servicable . If you guys want to hate a guy , remember , it was Lavar who had all the god given talent in the world and rarely showed up .That is in the past , looks like we could have a WS backer for the first time in over 10 years , not to mention a leader at the MLB spot !

Re: Rocky McIntoch Appreciation Thread

I was REALLY impressed with Rocky, obviously, and how crisp our D was playing the entire nite. The only thing I am still a little worried about is pass rush which still looked mediocre. However, GWill didn't blitz too many safeties and LB's (probably because he doesnt want to show all his cards in the preseason) so hopefully the pass rush won't become a problem. Also I know Rogers has been playing pretty well, but I still don't understand why he is giving WR's so much cushion (even on the goal line). Whats the deal with Smoot? I think he has been really quiet this preseason (both literally and figuratively). Is he in GW's doghouse b/c he isnt as physical as the other members of the secondary?

Yeah, I love how when someone plays well they should have been playing that position last season and its the coaches fault. If you pay attention to anything the Skins are saying, Rocky, along with Campbell, have spent the most time this offseason at Redskins Park trying to improve. That is why he is playing amazing, his hard work is showing off. I don't think he prepared like this last season.
