Re: Redskins Release 5

Not totally surprised with Mitchell getting released, but after the minicamp? Not sure why folks got all excited about the kid? He had a decent preseason, but was up against 2nd-3rd string defenses most of the time. Plus he came from Nevada, a pistol offense heavy on the run. The move also tells me we got the vet WRs to compete to play and not just to light a fire under the newbies' butts. Don't be surprised if Shanny releases another newbie later on when the roster has to hit 53. I hope Mitchell actually pursued a real degree at Nevada and not the typical basketweaving ones like Phys Ed or a general Communications degree. It is a 50/50 chance somebody is going to pick him up. Getting released at minicamp isn't very good.

Re: Redskins Release 5

My take is that Shanny got the vets to shore up the WR corp til he can draft some next year and the next. Don't be surprised to see either Thomas or Kelly get dumped in August. I doubt it is going to happen, but shoot if Marko got released, those guys can be on the block as well.

Re: Redskins Release 5

marko mitchell was never even close to being in the same league as kelly and thomas, so releasing mitchell has nothing to do with the status of either of the 2008 WRs. however, smoots been telling us all offseason that kelly was on the block, so if he doesnt make the team, it wouldnt be a complete surprise. that said, i doubt either Galloway or Wade is a threat to Kelly, Thomas, or Moss. If any of those three dont make the team, it'll be because we traded for someone better... or signed TO... GULP.

Re: Redskins Release 5

Marko surprises me, he has some potential.

However, new bosses, new goal (win now) and the signing of Galloway leaves no room for him.

That is the best he can hope for. He has decent size, etc, but if we didn't draft him, he would have been undrafted, so nobody deemed him worthy of picking up in the first place. Getting rleased during minicamp isn't a good thing at all for a player's resume. Look for Shanny to draft a WR with one of our top 3 picks next year.

Never mentioned Moss, only the newbies as maybe being a victim of another surprise cut. And if we retained Wade and Galloway for a year or two, Shanny can draft some upper round Wrs that can get the job done.

This is a ridiculous reason. Ever heard of demaryius thomas? He's a WR from Georgia Tech thats EXTREMELY run heavy yet he was a 1st round pick. So his college scheme really has nothing to do with it now. Apparently, Marko just didnt show enough polish during the minicamp as far as running routes and picking up the playbook. With Shanahan wanting to "win now", you cant go into the season with 4 outta 5 receivers "developing." There has to be SOME establishment out there.

Re: Redskins Release 5

I mean why do you need the vets to help out with instilling leadership in the newbies, etc? Isn't that why we hired McCardell for? I think the Vets are there for insurance, not to help coach up the greenies. I could be wrong, but Shanny could have just brought in TO to help out with the newbies and contribute. That is why I say look out for another surpise cut in August. My guess is one of the vets will stay.

Re: Redskins Release 5

Unless one of our WRs is stuggling with a serious injury, i dont see how Wade or Galloway would stay at the expense of Moss, Kelly, or Thomas. If that happened, i'd truly be shocked but give you all the credit in the world for calling it.

That was just an add on. Thing was he was drafted real low also, so obviously folks didn't think he was hot. And yes a system(school you go to also) can have an influence on if one is drafted or not. IF you are above average in talent, but are in a system that you really can't showcase your ability, that does hinder your NFL draft status. The only Wrs that can buck this trend are the ones with exceptional talent, cream of the crop. You gave me Demaryius Thomas as an example of WR from a run heavy system at Ga Tech, but that guy was from a big school and is definitely very gifted. My uncle coached Chris Carter at Ohio State in a balanced attack, but that guy was phenomenal, and of course was a first rounder.

I have not been saying that about Kelly. I said that he was in the discussions for Marshall.

My thing is more based a lot on the fact that it is a new regime. Obviously Shanny didn't think Marko had it, while most of us were excited by the guy. Obviously I guess we didn't see what Shanny and co saw something that maybe they migh see in Thomas or Kelly come August. I am not saying it is going to happen Big Hair, just saying don't be surprised if it does. I can easily see one of the vets staying on the 53 man roster also.

Re: Redskins Release 5

Wow, I am pretty disappointed in Marko Mitchell being released. I still think he has a shot in the NFL. Oh well, another fan favorite gone. Last one on the roster is Colt. I have a bad feeling about him right now. He better have a good mini camp or he will be gone too.
