Redskin Wideouts to join McNabb in Arizona for "hell week"

Redskins' receivers to join Donovan McNabb for "hell week"

Posted by Michael David Smith on July 18, 2010 12:40 PM ET
The Redskins will open training camp in Ashburn, Virginia, on July 29, but Donovan McNabb and some of his teammates are getting a head start.

Rick Maese of the Washington Post reports that receivers Devin Thomas, Santana Moss and Malcolm Kelly are among the players who have accepted McNabb's invitation to spend this week in Arizona for an intense series of workouts in the desert heat.

"I think it's important for the specialists on the offense to have that chemistry, to have that bond," McNabb said, "where they can trust me and I can trust them."

McNabb calls the workouts -- which he also did with teammates in Philadelphia -- "hell week."

"It's a different mindset," McNabb said. "I prepare guys the way I prepare."

For some players, a week of relaxation might make more sense than a week of hell right before the start of camp, but Thomas is among those expressing excitement at the opportunity to get extra work in.

"Can't nothing but good come out of the situation when you go out and work out with your quarterback before the season starts," Thomas said. "It's a great time to build that chemistry without the coaches being there. You just get a little of that extra bonding time to lead into training camp."

I love it. Like DT said, nothing but positive can come from this.

Really like what McNabb is bringing to the table with the team concept, something that is rather new in DC in the past 10 or so years.

I see these little things being very big moving forward as a TEAM. I hope it translates into the WIN column.

Also applaud Kelly, Thomas, and Moss for putting in a little extra for the cause of team betterment I see this paying dividends for all parties.

Re: Redskin Wideouts to join McNabb in Arizona for "hell week"

I have always liked McNabb.. The guy want's that RING as bad as REDSKINS fans do! I know this sounds like a Homer but I can really see us competing for a Championship these next 3 years.. And as far as our WR's go, they all better be in AZ with Donovan because Terrell Owens and possibly VJ are still possibilities.

Well it looks like at least the slated top three will be in Arizona. Not sure about Jackson, but I think it's safe to remove TO from your list of WR possibilities list.

I love reading this. This isn't fluff, actual things getting done to improve our qb/wr situation for the year. I won't be the only one working in the AZ heat this week .

If I recall, Jason worked out plenty in the offseason with the WRs. But he's not named Donovan McNabb and didn't have a fancy name like "Hell Week," so his workouts didn't get this kind of pub.

I still really feel for Jason - I can't wait to see how Jason does at Oakland; I really hope the best for him..

Back on the news; I'm really glad to hear this - just like someone just said, hopefully this will turn to winning games..

the point is that mcnabb is respected in the locker room and can get our tops wrs to arizona for extra work outs. i dont remember JC having the wr core to mississippi. mcnabb commands way more respect and control over the whole offensive scheme than JC, no doubt about it.

this kind of news makes me wish it was august already. pass me some of that koolaid.

Great news everyone needs to be there, I know this will get back to the FO & they will see who dosen't attend or take the invite & that person will be one of the 1st cuts. 11 days to Training Camp opens.

HTTR.

I'm not arguing that JC is as good or better than McNabb- he's not. But respect from teammates was certainly not an issue with Campbell.

Re: Redskin Wideouts to join McNabb in Arizona for "hell week"

^ I think it's mainly our excitment of this team.. We have a very good coaching staff and a damn good GM. Throw in a HOF type QB and any news is good for us. Campbell was always gonna be " just a guy " and we all knew that. McNabb actually gives us a shot at making a legit run
