re: Updated: Redskins Release James Thrash

I wish James Thrash the best. I hope he doesn't risk his health to keeping playing cause he has his whole life ahead of him. He is a model for all the young players to mold themselves after. His hard work and dedication makes him a true pro. Good Luck Thrash listen to your body its time to call it a career. God Bless.

re: Updated: Redskins Release James Thrash

I thought I heard Larry Michael say something about an announcement Monday. I was only halfway paying attention but it wouldn't surprise me if Thrash announces his retirement.

Not sure what notes he would be taking unless it's what he sees the defenders doing on other teams cause we all know Hixon is not passing any info worth it's weight in gold.

At this point I would almost say fire Hixon and make Thrash the WR coach. Maybe all his notes will finally help the team.

Lol I don't know about Thrash taking over Hixon's position, but it would be great if Redskins FO is able to offer him a job position as coach assistant or somewhere in FO.. He truly deserves it, and it would be funny not to hear anything about Thrash anymore when he retires and leaves NFL..

re: Updated: Redskins Release James Thrash

Matty posted the news of Marko Mitchell, but he may be just the WR to replace Thrash. At least he seems to have hands.

I believe the "announcement", is gonna be about the lottery.

Thrash's best days were during the Norv era and his stint with the Eagles. By the time we resigned him he already seemed a step or two slower than his old self. I like him, but there is a time to know when to take a bow and move on. With him gone we can now hang on to one of the new WR acquisitions that might pan out to be a #3 WR.

re: Updated: Redskins Release James Thrash

Zorn was quoted today as saying that Thrash has "a situation where it is not improving." Doesn't look good for James. That's too bad. I like the guy, but it's time to move on.

re: Updated: Redskins Release James Thrash

I have no direct insight into what James Thrash is thinking about his career at the moment. However, I am confident that when he decides to stop playing NFL football, we will hear from and about him in terms of public service/teaching.

James Thrash would be an excellent football coach; my suspicion is that he would want to start that kind of career out at the high school or collegiate level where he could be a teacher in addition to a coach. And by "teacher" I do not mean to box him into a classroom; James Thash can teach in the classroom to be sure but he also has much more to teach people about how to live thier lives in positive and productive ways.

I would not be shocked to learn that James Thrash eventually started a youth ministery focused on sports and education for kids who don't live in the "high rent district".

James Thrash will never make it into the Pro Football HoF in Canton, Ohio as a player; but he is an outstanding human being.

The Washington Redskins - - and all of the NFL to be sure - - would be proud if every player were as good a person and as helpful a citizen as is James Thrash.

Forget the football player for just a moment and focus on the fact that this is an outstanding person - - akin to Darrell Green and Charles Mann and Art Monk - - who also happened to play some football for the Washington Redskins.

Really good stuff here. The Redskins have been blessed with some real game changers both on and off the field.
