It also doesn't help that he is the biggest WR they have and his presense is desperately needed in the redzone. So yes...Not gonna lie...the thoguht of him sitting around playing video games bugs me.
It's ok for folks to take a short break for the mind to rejuvenate itself. It is not ok for playtime to be prioritized over work. We do not know his schedule to make a definitive conclusion on what the case is the actual one.

I don't get why people get their panties on a bunch over this situation. I saw Hanks' tweets, and to me he could have said worst things. In the end, this isn't about one guy, it's a whole team situation. This guy is still a kid and there are more stupid things he could have done.

Personally, I think he needs to get his act together on the field, he's a physically gifted WR that we could use. But this whole twitter non-drama is a non-issue for me.

Exactly right. Personally I'm not a fan of twitter. I don't see how anything good can ever come from an NFL player tweeting. But it's not like these guys are required to be immersed in their job 24 hours a day. Him shooting out a few tweets in his free time is no different from another player taking some free time to read a book or play with their kids. They're human beings.

With that said, the learning curve at WR from college to pro is one of the steepest of any position. I certainly hope Hank is putting in the extra time needed to be successful as quickly as possible.

A QB would have been nice. At that point, Mallett was available...maybe Kaepernick?

Re: Leonard Hankerson active vs Panthers

I find it kind of humorous when we blast a player for not dedicating every second of their time to improving themselves professionally when none of us do. Because if we did...there'd be almost no one posting here during the day. I'm the exception since this is sports related

Unfortunately Mallet was taken a few picks before Hank. Kaep was gone in early 2nd. We had the trade downs.

Re: Leonard Hankerson active vs Panthers

We have to find a "playmaker" somewhere along the line, and this guy seemed to have that ability if we could get him on track. Unfortunately, the Skins have not been very good at doing that.

I think whoever started the "Stephon Heyer Memorial Thread" needs to improve their posting skills. LOL.

I don't trust a statue like Mallet and Kaepernick seems destined to be a bust.

With hindsight being 20/10 I'd say that the only two options for us for an actual upgrade would have been Newton or Dalton.

With that said we have to pull the trigger on a QB soon. It's not fair to expect a rookie to come in and play playoff level football right off the bat. You draft a guy in 2012 you expect dividends in 2013 or 2014 at the earliest.

So does ESPN actually encourage you to be active here or is this a stretch of market research? Either way I consider you a bastard

If Orakpo is the guy who's going to be repping the Redskins in TV commercials...I hope there's never an ESPN Redskins commercial

Cooley would be the obvious choice. Or Rex if he was willing to make fun of himself.
