Teammate: No excuse for T. Williams' absence

Teammate: No excuse for T. Williams' absence
Until receiver Malcolm Kelly’s one-day appearance, Williams’ absence is the most surprising considering he has a long way to go in his development.

Left guard Kory Lichtensteiger said Williams should “definitely” be participating.

Re: Teammate: No excuse for T. Williams' absence

Given that they are playing a sophisticated version of backyard football, it doesn't bug me if linemen are not there, since there is not that much for them to do. I'm not saying that Kory L. is wrong, just that it is not that big of a deal.

Landry and Atogwe being missing bugs me more. They do have things to do. I wish they were both there building chemistry and mutual understanding.

I can't fault anyone for not showing to these workouts. Real mini camps are one thing, these player organized practices are a different animal.

Re: Teammate: No excuse for T. Williams' absence

Landry never shows up. That's just what happens. He's never been big into OTAs/minicamp. He only showed up last season because we were switching defenses.

Atogwe has had any number of family engagements and stuff that was planned months in advance. I'm sure he'd be there if he could.

As for Trent, this isn't a big deal. At all. There's not a whole lot for linemen to do. It's good for them to just get in the habit of repping the plays, but really, I'd rather have him stay at home and work out on his own then risk being injured. He was really effective at the beginning of the season, but then all his injuries started to pile up. Problems with his knee, calf, shoulder, all on one side of his body.

In the old days, the offseason was supposed to be about healing. From everything we've heard, Trent's been working on regularly and doing stuff with Adrian Peterson. He'll be ready for camp, and really, that's all that matters.

I'm pretty sure Pittsburgh hasn't worked out AT ALL this offseason, so...no, they wouldn't have.

I've heard him be called lazy before, kind of feel that was one of the bigger grips on him coming out of school. Either way as one of the highest paid players at one of the most important spots on the team he should be there. Im glad that KL is calling him out, he should be called out.

Also im pretty sure MK has been to at least 2 practices, maybe just one" ota", but he was there 2 out of 3 days,

Re: Teammate: No excuse for T. Williams' absence

WTF guys these are organized pick up games. Freaking fans are playing lol! I don't blame players for not showing.

Like I mentioned before it's a huge liability playing out here. It is all fun and games until someone gets hurt. Doesn't matter how simple the "drills" are. One cut and boom goes a knee.

Re: Teammate: No excuse for T. Williams' absence

And yet again, every indication is that he's been at home working at on his own, and he comes into camp fine and is actually healthy, which he wasn't. When Trent was healthy he looked really good; it was until the injuries mounted up on him that his play suffered up.

The only reason this started up is because "Redskins players have some of the highest turnouts ay unofficial workouts" isn't a good headline and "Beck wants to be the starter" is running out of steam. Nothing positive is a good headline around here.

i kinda feel the same way, yea it's not a huge deal, but it would have been nice for him to make an appearance, it's not like he can't afford a plane ticket. but in the grand scheme of things it's not a big deal.

the only player that really surprised me by not showing was d hall, doesn't he still live in va? and isn't this his defense? i like d hall, but if you are gonna run your mouth like that you should be there.

and last year we had every indidcation that fat al was working harder than ever to get in shape and we saw how that worked out. this isn't much of an issue but trent williams is one of the biggest names on the team and one of the most important positions. if this was his 3rd or 4th year i would feel a lot different. and i agree we are making a mountain out of a mole hill, but an appearance from tw at anyone of these pratices would have been nice.


how is beck wanting to be the starter some great story line? it's hard to be positive when your team isn't very good but i would say the overall tone on the warpath is a lot more positive than you make it out to be.
