Somebody should start a Cliff Russel fan club.
The same thing could be said about Taylor Jacobs and Ladell Betts. These guys have a ton of talent, but seem to keep sustaining injuries in practice or preseason games. I guess there has to be an evaluation of how they approach their stretching exercises because when I visited camp some players were not stretching long enough if you ask me.

i bet diet and the work out routine is part of it too... TJ and LB have played some though, cliff really hasn't been heard from in a while, not that i disagree though. Those guys need to show up.

potential doesn't earn you playing time, but it does give you a bigger safety net from being cut...

I think potential goes along way with Gibbs. He's definitely one who can turn that potential into something positive.

All the potential in the world doesnt mean jack if you cant get out on the field.Nobody cares about who has the most potential in the re-hab room.

right, but cause of what they've seen of betts and jacobs, they're going to give them a longer period of time to show up than they would with most undrafted rookies...

we cant just cut taylor, a 2nd rounder who was projected as a 1st, one season after he was drafted, cuz he had a ruptured spleen. this guy looked pretty good so far. the TD catch last year was nice

I'm with you, Big C, I sure hope Jacobs makes the team. But he will have to overcome his injury history to do it. And it's not just the latest one. He has been injured much more than he has been available in his Redskin tenure. Let's hope he can stay healthy now!! We sure need his talent.

I don't think Jacobs is in danger of being cut.

I think you are right with the current situation, Matty. Gibbs certainly gave him strong commendations in the minicamps. But Joe Gibbs definitely has the old school coaching mentality about guys being able to stay on the field. Another ding real soon that keeps him on the sidelines for a game could spell trouble. The best thing that could happen right now for him, is to play through something to show he has the mental toughness Gibbs likes. We know Gibbs likes his skills, but that is 3rd or 4th on his list of priorities. Anyhow, they should be keeping at least 5 WR's with all of the dings they have, so there may be no choice.

the thing with jacobs is that he had a weird injury, a ruptured spleen or something, which shouldnt be a reocurring one, like a torn acl, i think he will get on the field a lot. he runs good routes and has good speed.

I think that since Cooley has shown a lot of potentail, we are going to start cutting down the list of TEs to make room for some of these receivers. I wouldnt be surprised if we just kept cooley, kowolski(sp) and rasby, then mabye one more.
