On a related note, I hear Robert Thomas has been pretty impressive as well at the OTAs
Yeah, been reading that as well.

Of course it won't be too long until we start saying bye bye to some guys, that's always tough, those one or two guys that you hoped would stick.

Where'd you read it? I haven't seen anything written, would love to see what's being said

Either that or our QB sitting on the bench.

Re: Redskins June 2009 OTAs

According to today's insider (I think), Barnes walked off with 4 INT's in practice today.

How sweet would this be - Barnes and Tryon devoloping into top notch CB's relegating Smoot to 5 corner. I know I'm dreaming but, hey, that's what June OTA's are for.

Frankly, although I think he is a great character, I think Smoot is a liability every time he steps on the field even against the 3rd receiver.

Yup, 4 INTs. That's 6 INTs in the last 2 practices. I'd like to know what QB(s) he repeatedly abused. But regardless, he looks like a really good pick thus far. We'll see what happens at the end of July when the pads are on.

I would say that maybe this was the 2nd team? So maybe Collins or Colt. Although I think Hall has had two picks, so those prob were from Campbell.

Re: Redskins June 2009 OTAs

I wonder what the team would do if Rogers picks off a career high 5-6 passes this year, or some amount more than D-Hall does, and then they have these two young corners developing in Barnes and Tryon. Would you let Rogers walk coming off a career year? Do you keep all four of them?

The way I see it, Smoot could be a roster transaction at any time between now and next March. But with four corners on the younger side, how well does Rogers need to play this year before you just say, "we need to keep this guy, whatever the cost." Because you might just be blocking two young corners with two albatross contracts to more veteran players (but still on the younger side).

Is this season going to come down to a Hall vs. Rogers think? Is it conceivable that the uncapped year could be used to dump Hall's contract if Rogers vastly outplays him, and the young guys are ready for prime time. How will Blache screw this one up?

Good question, but I would need to see more out from Barnes and Tryon first, when it counts - on sundays, with pads on.. I'm big believer in Rogers, I'm not quite sure why I am though.. I just like him I guess.. I always believe the defense will be good when the players play physically.. Before last year, I probably would not mind the idea of letting Rogers walk.. Until after the season, he has shown his toughness (perhaps strong influence from the great Sean Taylor?.. We especially need physically CB to play against WRs.. Sean brought the fear to our defense, many WRs are afraid to catch balls with him roaming the field.. But he's not with us anymore (RIP), and then there are less WRs who are still afraid to catch against us..

But of course, if Rogers doesn't show the toughness at the next season then I might jump in the bandwagon..

Edit: But this doesn't mean I don't like Barnes and Tryon.. I especially like Barnes, he looks good.. I'm glad to hear Tryon is improving a lot.. I don't see anything wrong with having 2 or 3 great CBs along with 1 or 2 good CB at same time.. But of course, Redskins had to handcuffed our hands with Hall and Haynesworth (and maybe Orakpo?) contracts, which lessen our chances of signing Rogers and Campbell to what they re asking for (that is if they both play well enough)..

Re: Redskins June 2009 OTAs

Good story: Carlos Rogers and Nnamdi Asomugha were born 4 days apart. And Rogers is older.

Carlos is much, much older than we think. He's also a lot better than most realize. But he's coming up on the prime two years of his career. Maybe, and this is the first time I'm considering this, it makes the most sense to not offer him a long term deal. There's no way I would let him walk after this season though.

Campbell's money is there for someone, I think. Snyder's budgeting to either pay Campbell, or pay another QB to live up to expectations.

With corner, we might have to make money for Rogers. Hall got the big bucks, and the team is making a youth movement, so I think Rogers has to play his way into a big money deal here.

Rogers is going to get his coin, but, I think without gaudy INT totals, it might be somewhere else.

I think it was Collins.

Can't have been Chase. He tore it up today! 2 TDs with the first team baby!

There was an article about linebackers, maybe orakpo or wilson, I think on RI that mentioned it, then again, that might've been during minicamp. I think that Terl might've mentioned him in response to a comment as well. Or I could be completely thinking of Cody Glenn, but I was thinking it was Thomas. Either way it was nothing but a couple quips of positivitey.

You heard anything in specific about him?

So DHall's pick was thrown by Chase (the one he handed off to Landry in a lateral)?

I wonder if Chase is going to be this year's Colt. LOL.
