Re: Brian Westbrook Meeting with Redskins on Wednesday

^ I'm not so sure about Parker. I guessing if Portis does what Shanahan wants him to do then Portis will be the main RB otherwise he could be gone. But as it seems now he is doing what Shanahan wants.

I get the impression LJ will be the big RB on short yrdge.

I think it's obvious Westbrook would be used for passing downs and as you said other teams would key on that unless of course they choose to use a 2 back system say Portis and Westbrook.... have them run to opposite sides and defenses would have to account for either Portis running or Westbrook catching out of the back field.

Basically Westbrook just adds another wrinkle for defenses to have to account for. I also wonder if Shanahan would decide to use certain RB's against certain teams based on the other teams weaknesses. Portis might be the main RB in one game but Parker might be the main RB in another. Westbrook another and finally LJ perhaps against teams with strong DL's.

Re: Brian Westbrook Meeting with Redskins on Wednesday

I think at this point the media and fans need to be cornering Byron Westbrook and asking him what his brother is going to do.

Re: Brian Westbrook Meeting with Redskins on Wednesday

I am pretty sure I read that the Redskins had wanted WP but it looked like they would be unable to get him, so they brought in LJ. I would think if they have to cut one of them, it would be LJ. Of course, that could just be the Steeler fan in me talking too.

Re: Brian Westbrook Meeting with Redskins on Wednesday

Reports of Parker not looking too hot in camps so far certainly doesn't help his case.

I haven't had time to follow the training camp reports, so I defer to you. That does suck for me though, since I am a big WP fan.

Broncos backing off Westbrook pursuit - AFC West Blog - ESPN

Broncos backing off Brian Westbrook
Posted by Gregg Rosenthal on June 11, 2010 8:32 PM ET
Brian Westbrook successfully drummed up interest after the NFL Draft, but he's yet to make a decision about his future. There are indications that at least one suitor is tired of waiting.

Bill Williamson of ESPN writes Denver is "softening" its pursuit of the former Eagles running back. Instead, the Broncos want to see how J.J. Arrington looks in a third down role during training camp.

The Redskins remain interested in Westbrook, although we wonder if they would like to finally get an answer from him, perhaps before the team's mandatory minicamp next week. Westbrook visited the Rams first, but St. Louis appears to be his fallback plan.

Thanks for the link!
It has been too long...I am jonesing for some real skins news.
I would be cool if he joined the skins...part of me thinks he may say something tomorrow in philly with that event with Portis and McNabb.
On the other hand..what a way to tick off a city...announcing in town with your star QB who left.
