Jones Works To Get 'Extra Edge' (WP Email)

Kenyatta Jones was at Redskins Park yesterday, a day off for the players. The Redskins right tackle wanted to work on his game after starting the season opener in place of Jon Jansen, who is out for the season with a torn Achilles tendon.
"Most guys come in for treatment, but I come in to get that extra edge," Jones said as he left the training facility. "I look at a little extra film, do an extra workout. You're going against pros every week. This is our job."

Sunday, Jones helped the Redskins rush for 166 yards on 39 carries mostly behind Clinton Portis' 148 yards on 29 attempts. Despite the gaudy numbers, Washington's offensive linemen weren't as good with their run-blocking as with their pass blocking. Quarterback Mark Brunell was not sacked.

Jones' blocks in which he sealed a defensive player from the runner were excellent, creating room for Portis. But Jones wasn't satisfied with his play because he didn't finish off his pass blocking well and didn't get further down field on some running plays.

"There's always a negative play here or a negative play there," Jones said. "I won more battles than I lost but I wanted to win all of them."

Offensive coach Joe Bugel emphasizes getting down field to follow the play even after the initial block at the line of scrimmage.

"We want to be around the ball at all times," Jones said. "A lot of guys don't want to run to the ball after it looks like the play is over. They want to just watch the play. We want to get to the ball and protect our guys and stop people from jumping on piles."

Jones has been solid since replacing Jansen in Washington's second preseason game. Still, the left side of the line is its strongest with tackle Chris Samuels and guard Derrick Dockery. And Jones wants to improve on his weaknesses while learning to work with right guard Randy Thomas.

I'm really happy with how Jones has slid into #76's position, kept his mouth shut, and done his job. He's really just what we needed when Jansen went down.

I love it... Great work ethic, it is this type of attitude that is one contagious and two a winning attitude, that we have lacked in years.

This is the result of good coaching. Gibbs and Bugel have these guys aiming higher. The results may take some time, but this is the attitude of a winning team. While everyone is praisng them in the papers, they (to a man) say the game left a lot of room for improvement. Right on! GO DIRT BAGS!

I almost cry when I read things like this. You all think we would have any player do or say things like this under previous regimes? No chance. Gibbs has these guys gulping the coolaid.

Thats great to hear that this guy is stepping up his game, to help the team. He's gonna have his hands full this weekend too. I'm really happy to hear about guys like this, hes going to be a full time starter in this league if he keeps up this work ethic.

Kenyatta is the man!!! I am glad to see he is working hard. I had a feeling he would be able to step up with Jansen out.

it's interesting to see that kind of attitude emerage. where was it last year? alot of it has to do with the coaches bringing it out in people and getting under their skin. granted jones was good last year on st but last years staff could have exploited it more.
i smell a new lagacy coming on; way to go jones and co.

I wonder if Jansen is actually working with him at all.
