Granted, Vinny could have responded to inquiries with "no comment," but that's tantamount to saying, "I absolutely confirm the validity of these rumors."

Either JLC (1) realizes that front offices' engage in subterfuge, deception, and outright lies; or (2) he is an idiot for believing that Vinny should be absolutely candid with the press. In any event, JLC seems like he has some serious personal beef with this front office. He never wastes an opportunity to blast the team. He might think he is just calling them like he sees them and the rest of us are dumb sheep, but I tend to think he is oftentimes unprofessional insofar as he is letting his personal biases color his perception of front office moves.
Good post, I would agree that JLC does behave unreasonably with his incessant bashing of the team.

I don't think we could have been hit with any tampering charges when it comes to Taylor, because tampering would consist of talking to a guy when he's under contract. That's not what Vinny was doing, he wasn't talking to Taylor, he was talking to Parcells about trading for Taylor. Which is perfectly legal in the NFL world.

But tampering notwithstanding, you're right, JLC should know that teams aren't going to be honest about player acquisition. It would be bad business.

I could be wrong, but I thought that tampering encompasses any statements which suggest that a team is interested in a player under contract with another team. I think the rationale for that broad construction of the concept of tampering is that if a player is thinking about holding out unless he is traded, public expressions of interest in trading for that player would only encourage him to hold out. Had Vinny had told the press that the Redskins are trying to trade for Taylor, they would have expressed an interest in acquiring a player under contract with another team.

Justin Tryon seems to have swagger to him. He's already yapping on the field like Smoot. Plus he seems to be doing well on the practice field.

he's been doing that since draft day. confidence is definitely not a problem.


and yeah, generally NFL teams don't talk about players under contract to other teams (publicly) because THEY AREN'T SUPPOSED TO.

If you're going to try and pin it to the FO, pointless whining a pretty weak approach.

IMO the struggles he's having are still thinking about the reads too much and not trusting his own decsion-making yet. He's probably making the right read, but is still hesitating on pulling the trigger slightly. This will throw off the timing in the WCO. Give Zorn & JC the benefit of the doubt, and next week I'll bet we see a much improved and more consistent JC. JC's a hard worker and for the first time in his NFL career he has a good QB coach, who has played the position at the NFL level.

Collins is not the answer. JC would need to play pretty awful for me to pull him in favor of Collins.

Dude has a TON of swagger, and he seems to be backing it up so far. He could be a nice find.

Well if he only hitting around 50/50 it would be kind of hard not to be critcal of himself.

Re: Non-Jason Taylor News (from Redskins Blog)

Who has undying faith??

All I'm saying is we haven't seen enough of him to make any firm judgments. You've gotta give the guy a fair shot.

It's day 3 of camp in a new system and you're already hinting at a QB change?

C'mon.

Yeah, sounds like someone is annoyed he didn't catch wind of it before it happened. Boo hoo JLC.

C'mon.

Not yet, But so far he has played in 20 games over two seasons.

Year one he played 7 games and his QB rating was 76.5. Not great.

Next year he played 13 games and his qb raiting was virtually unchanged at 77.6, even though he went through the entire training camp as the designated starter.

His rating was actually higher in Losses than wins (77.8 : 77.3).

His rating was abysmal in games close and late (51.0).

I'm starting to see a pattern, that I hope the next 16 games changes.

This is definitely a "put up or shut up" year for him.

I posted this back in May. We definitely agree that this is a "put up or shut up" year for JC though.

Just read your post. I especially liked your analysis:

The next seaon he started 12 games and improved to 63.7 completion % and an 87.8 rating. The following season he was a Pro-Bowl caliber QB, posting a 61 completion % and a 91.4 QB rating. Campbell has better physical skills, a stronger arm and the same "brains" as Hasselbeck. With Zorn mentoring and developing JC, expect him to be playing at a Pro Bowl level towards the end of this season or early next season.
Note the progression: 70.9->87.8->91.4

Hope to see something like that this year.

Thanks. I hope so too, or not only are we (Skins) in a bad situation going into JCs final year of his contract, but I'm going to have to take a lot of doo-doo from the JC bashers. LOL
