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.
I'm a Phys Ed/Health major at Longwood University I wouldn't call it a basketweaving major. At my school it is actually one of the harder education programs to get out of and requires a higher GPA to stay in the program then our Business school and requires the 2nd most credits to graduate out of the entire university. Don't hate on PE

Or Gym class....I can remember my PE teachers always saying "Gym (Jim) there is no Gym (Jim) here"


I don't know who is more uptight about their jobs dentist or PE teachers. God forbid you don't refer to a dentist as a Doctor.

Re: Redskins Release 5

I wish I would have majored in PE, not because it's easy, I'm sure it's not, just would be a sweet gig I think to be a gym teacher. Do some coaching on the side, summers off, not bad at all.

Haha it's true my professors go nuts if you call it "gym" class. It's a lot harder now than it used to be to get through it but it also depends on where you go to school as well. I transferred to Longwoods PE department and realized quick it was no joke. It's not surprising at all to see people not graduate on time haha like me

I switched from Sports Management to PE just because of the summers off and the coaching gig. It's awesome as long as you can find a job, which in VA good luck at this point

Re: Redskins Release 5

This is good news for us I believe, getting better by dropping the dead weight.

Probably because he offers no value on special teams, but I'm still disappointed. Look at our top 3 RBs (Portis, Johnson, Parker) and top 3 WRs (Moss, Thomas, Kelly), and of those, only Thomas might be a regular on special teams. Any #4/#5 guys at those positions will probably be expected to contribute to special teams, so Marko was probably a victim of the numbers game. He definitely has the height, speed, and hands to excel somewhere if given the chance, I just hope that it isn't in our division.

I like the FO doing moves that fans wouldn't necessarily like. Shows that they are at least factoring that individuals talents and seeing that they won't mesh with the new scheme.

Especially with the fact that he wasn't contributing on Special Teams. We just don't have the luxury of keeping a guy just to be our 4 or 5 WR.


I'm glad someone is evaluating talent instead of hopes and dreams.

Not hating, but when my uncle was the HC of Ohio St football in the 80's, by far the most popular majors were PE and Communications. UNless you get into some really specialized subset of the two, it might really be hard getting a job nowadays. Probably was back then also.

I agree. I am glad that the FO seems to have a clue how to run a professional organization based on effort and ability.

I've always wondered about this. Is your uncle the reason behind your Gus Frerotte love?
