Kevin Barnes sounds ready to step up

I like the confidence in his statements. CB's have to be confident!
Quote:
“The best thing I did last year is learn how to practice,” Barnes said. “I went out there every day even though I wasn’t sure I was going to play that Sunday and I dominated every day of practice and gave the coaches a fit. That really built my confidence, so once I really got in there, I made a few things happen. I just know that I’m really capable of playing at that level now.”
Kevin Barnes expects much more of himself in 2010 - Redskins Journal

Also, sounds like the FO is getting the message out loud and clear, you want to start/play here, prove it on the field. Great message, great culture change.

Re: Kevin Barnes sounds ready to step up

Good to hear. We NEED another CB to step up and push or replace Carlos. Barnes is capable.

Lets just hope we don't draft Jahvid Best...he'll be afraid to practice and we'll have another Portis on our hands.

Re: Kevin Barnes sounds ready to step up

Carlos is confident and he's a dick, Kevin is and it's great.

Fact is, every CB has to be cocky as hell and think they're the best guy in the NFL. Every CB gets beat, it's just how it is -- that attitude is what allows them to bounce back that next play and lock him down. I love the attitude, look forward to seeing him play the nickle this year.

Re: Kevin Barnes sounds ready to step up

All I know is he plays pretty well on Madden '10.

Good to hear from the second year guy though. Let's hope JH will use the kid to the best of his ability.

If Carlos could catch an INT and not blow assignments, he would be considered a lot less of a dick. If there's true competition at CB this year, unless we bring in a proven FA, Barnes will be a starter before the halfway point of this season.

Re: Kevin Barnes sounds ready to step up

Talk is cheap...not looking to seeing him get toasted next season. They better provide him with some safety cover.

Agreed. I've heard similar things out of multiple guys that went on to either blow up or be nothing more then average. JP Losman is one that comes to mind right away for me. I also think we heard similar things out of Malcolm Kelly last offseason. Either way I'll wait until I see it on the field, hopefully he's right though.

Re: Kevin Barnes sounds ready to step up

I never really liked anything about Kevin Barnes before he got drafted, but this is nice to see. I would love to see any of our guys step up and form a nice corner duo with d hall.

Carlos is far and away our best CB. Hall gets INTs, but also gets worked far more than Carlos. Do I wish he caught those balls? Sure. Is he Asoumough (sp?) or Revis? No, he's not. But he's a top 20 corner in the league, in my opinion. His job is to not let the receiver catch the ball, he does that more than not. Blache and Williams are also known for leaving these guys on islands, most DCs help out their corners with safeties, that wasn't our plan most of the time.

I'll call it right now, Carlos doesn't quite get a pro bowl nod, but he's our starting #1 corner all year and has a productive year, including 3INTs.

Or maybe another Chris Johnson

Re: Kevin Barnes sounds ready to step up

I'm rooting for KB now that Smoot won't be stealing his minutes. Remember Blache didn't like rookies, so with them both gone the young players will have an opportunity. Vinny is not here to tell Zorn who to play now.
