Re: Where are Kelly & Thomas?

I definitely would run MK over the middle more. But he's gotta get better at running his breaks. Still, I think JC is not seeing the field all that well, and so he's not always picking these guys up when they do come open. He's got a good vibe with Cooley, at times he's been in synch with Moss and ARE, but he has yet to really click in a game with MK.

Just keep working. I think MK has the tools to be a good WR in the NFL.

Agreed, my sentiments exactly.

Re: Where are Kelly & Thomas?

[quote=SmootSmack;602890]From what I've seen this year there is no reason for Yoder to ever be on the field when Davis can be there instead (and I'm not just saying that because of Yoder's missed block yesterday). Davis is an effective blocker and can't emerge as a threat in the passing game if he's sitting on the sidelines. I was really questioning the decision to draft him but I think he may actually be the closest to making a significant impact.

Devin Thomas should be returning kicks, and I see him getting open but he's often the 4th (at best) option. Campbell just doesn't have the time to check off that many receivers. Until Moss or ARE is off this roster, it appears that Thomas' touches will most come somewhat unconventionally for a receiver (returns, reverses)
quote]

It drives me nuts that Yoder is on in place of Davis and Rock / ARE is returning kicks in place of Thomas. ARE isnt working at returning punts give someone else a try. There is room for impovment on kick off returns, give someone else a try.

Why has Marko Mitchell been inactive for 2 games now? I guess its either 4 rbs (including Mike Sellers) or 5 wrs? Thomas and Kelly are not making a impact on the field so give someone else a try!

Better yet why did we bring Alridge back? To add to that we are trying out Chris Henry..wtf?

So how many backs are we going to carry now? 6? And 50% of them can't run..lol. How about we bring in a OL? Hmmm..Ponder that..lol

We should have gotten rid of Betts and Rock. I am really beginning to question the FO now..

Re: Where are Kelly & Thomas?

Here is a question, and it may be dumb. Why can't we have more plays where Thomas and Kelly are the 1st option? Our line sucks, but quick slants should be easy. Right?

Re: Where are Kelly & Thomas?

The Redskins just cannot execute a respectable fade route. The last time it was in the playbook was in the Michael Westrbrook days and even then we only ran it once a year because he would tear up a knee coming down with the ball.

I just don't understand what people see in Jumpball Jesus. He is tall and can probably jump but so can a million other people at home watching football.
I hope he works out but I'm not going to get my hopes up over a camp scrub, I did with Darnarian McCants, Tydus Winans, Leslie Sheppard, Jacques Green and the legendary Taylor Jacobs...

Who is Jumpball Jesus? Kelly or Mitchell? ROTFL

This same critique is coming from several sources now, Cossell, ESPN and now NFL Network guys were saying the same thing yesterday.
I guess on film it is clear these two guys are not getting any separation from their defenders.
In my experiences I have found that guys that have weak or worn knees tend to have a problem cutting at full speed. I think both of these guys have had past knee problems?
I would like to see Marko get some reps with the first team in a game. These two jokers Kelly/Thomas have been given enough time to prove themselves. It is time to give someone else a try and see if it is not the QB or system and not the receivers.
