Re: Camp Confidential: Redskins strong on defense

Mosely says we have bad depth on the line, which is absolutely the case, but it's not like a team like Philadelphia (who some would save has good depth) would be any better off offensively if their two tackles missed significant time.

While it's not a fallacy to say that the success of the Redskins offense depends on the relative health of it's line, that's true for any team, even those with the depth. It's what happens when you have a 5-man unit: it's very hard to prepare for injuries to it.

Doesn't it seem that w/the exception of rebuilding or dysfunctional teams like Detroit, Rams, Broncos, raiders, tampa, that most of these articles make you think each team has a handful of stars on the rise that will break out & lead the team to the playoffs?

Yes sir. To that extent these articles are not that enlightening.

Re: Camp Confidential: Redskins strong on defense

We better see some improvement from preseason game #1 to put to rest any fears we may have about our D.

now that we got that out of the way, I love what I'm hearing about our skin's. And I agree with about 99% of this article. I agree that Carlos needs to start playing like a starter, because it's never good that you're getting beaten by a rookie 7th rounder.

I didn't know that Trent Shelton was doing that great.
Duh, Landry and Horton are better than those two slums, and yes even last year I have to say that they were better than pretty much all safeties in the NFC.
Ya I agree that tryon's ass should be cut.
Yes the Oline is our biggest concern. However, I feel that if Thomas were to get injured later in the season, hopefully he won't but, I feel that Rinehart could serve us well, plus Jermey Bridges is a very good backup, and could start for us now, so if stephon heyer got hurt or any of the other two guard spots. Center, is my biggest concern, because if Rabach gets hurt, Who comes in? Will montgomery. Ya, but he'll get abused by all the NFC's DT's. Edwin Williams. No, they moved him to guard, plus he probably won't make the team. Could they bring in a vet like pete kendall, ya they could but he's a guard first, and old. Then Chris Samuels, the corner stone to our OLine. If he goes down, Were screwed. So Chris and Casey, Stay healthy. If you miss games, miss one or a few, not the rest of the season.

The only thing in this article I kinda disagree with/don't like to hear, is that Haynesworth says that he would rather be tripled teamed, than get sacks. I understand what he's saying, but what I hope he'll do, is still go for the sack, even when he's tripled teamed, and not be like, "well Im being triple teamed, so I'm doing my job." Whereas the greats that Haynesworth says that he wants to be mentioned with, like reggie white, would still go for the sack, and get it, even after being triple teamed.

I also just read the Foxsports.com sleeper teams, and Peter Schrager just dissed us with campbell, saying how could campbell still like being the QB for this team, when he's been that guy whose going to prom with a girl that said he was her third choice. Good analogy. But I think Campbell is playing to prove himself and make money, than give up and be gone after the season.

Just a side note; I'm watching the Dallas Tennessee preseason game, and wondering why we didn't get Javon Ringer in the 5th round, rather than Cody Glenn?
Don't worry about the proven guys getting beat in practice. With guys like Rogers, Fletcher, Carter, Haynesworth, Griffin, and Daniels, you have more than enough tape on those guys to know that there's not going to be a decline in their performance this year.

It's just a statement at how good Mitchell has looked that he can get behind Rogers on a double move. Certainly, we don't have enough context on the pass rush to tell much from it, but it's a good sign that the 7th rounder can run with the first teamers this early in his professional career.
