Training Camp Questions & Answers (SS33 Recap on Post #46)

We had a thread like this last year, where folks could post questions they have about what's going on at camp, what happening with specific players, position battles, position group performance, etc. Those of us who are going to Training Camp would do our best to answer them.

I'm scheduled to go on Aug. 3rd. and I'm sure a few others are going as well. If you happen to see me at camp, and have a good grasp of Redskins history, you'll know who I am.

Fire away with questions.

There's a Philip Daniels Q&A session that was on ExtremeSkins recently...apparently he came on and answered a lot of questions. Understandably, very vanilla responses but there were a few gems.

My favorite was someone asking him to compare Orakpo to someone he had played with/against and he answered, "a young Lawrence Taylor". Very happy to hear that comparison to say the least.

Cripes, I knew Daniels was old but I didn't think he was that old.

Anyway, if possible, can someone try to get a feel for the running back situation. As in, does one guy seem to be getting more reps, look crisper, break away more often, etc.

SS33- I would like to know how the Oline looks and in specific TW. How is he doing adjusting to the speed of the NFL with pads on. It will be different for the big man when guys get helmets and pads. Just your over all opinion of our new offensive line would be nice Sammy.

First I want to say that you do a great job reporting from camp even without our questions. Thank you.

I'd be curious to hear how Carter is managing at OLB, especially in coverage, given his experience with the 49ers.

re: Training Camp Questions & Answers (SS33 Recap on Post #46)

Do we have a quarterback?

Quote:
One reality that pretty much flew under the radar during OTAs and minicamps was McNabb’s performance–he did not exactly shine while running the offense. His passes frequently fell to the ground either as a result of McNabb throwing to the wrong spot, or going to the right area but misfiring. The Washington offense was far from appearing to be a well-oiled machine.

Now, part of the reason that this wasn’t discussed much is that it was somewhat expected given McNabb’s lack of experience in making such transitions. But such excuses will end when training camp starts. If too many passes are hitting the ground during 11-on-11 drills at Redskins Park, or if McNabb doesn’t look sharp in preseason games, the pressure to fix whatever is wrong will be ratcheted up several notches. An 11-year veteran is expected to have a highly compressed learning curve, regardless of his past history in having to deal with change.

re: Training Camp Questions & Answers (SS33 Recap on Post #46)

where did that quote come from Davy? I think we all know a portion of McNabbs throws are going to hit the ground. What we are counting on is that the deep balls are going to hit the receivers.

I'm not at all concerned about how a QB does in May and June.. If those same reports and concerns appear in about 3 weeks then let's be worried.

Sorry, thought I included the link at the bottom but obviously not.
Thanks SS.

It's no secret that McNabb is very streaky and has a habit of throwing into the ground. My biggest concern is whether throwing less often than he did with the Eagles will actually make him worse.

Thanks SS33

My main concern are the line backers are we going to have a good group or are they looking lost out there. Fletcher doesnt seem to fit the 3-4 type linebacker.

How does the whole team look I want an honest review/opinion. I'm an optimistic type of person but I would like a glass half empty type of review/opinion.
