We're apparently looking at Cedric Benson or Ryan Grant.

No issues with Kyle, but the Jammal situation its almost like they are begging to be criticized for not doing more. Tackle for rookie franchise QB, its a head scratcher.

Practice is in the afternoon.

Yesterday's practice...it was hot.


The Redskins Blog | Apparently The First Practice Was Hot


Funny how RGIII didn't mind the heat while his teammates are all mentioning it. Nothing compared to Texas.

Re: 2012 Training Camp Competitions Open Discussion

Very disappointing news about Brown. This is the time where he should be 100% healthy. I'm getting the feeling that it's time to move on. Let's this be a lesson for the FO. NEVER trade for a guy coming off an injury that didn't play the year before.

When will the era of The Hogs II ever happen?
That would give me such an organism.

Why; I swear AW is Firstdown also.

Which organism were you think of?

I get the opposite vibe.
*(Maybe in this forum the responses are a backlash against GTripp vocal dislike?)

I feel like most objective evaluations or criticisms of Kyle's offense are met with knee jerk (and often over the top) defenses or rationaliztions.

The main argument centers on the lack of talent.

For example (and forgive me for re-hashing (man I miss college, I would love to re-hash...I digress..)) but the 1st of Kyle's offense was actually worse then Zorn's last year in every meaningful offensive category.
Yet the very mention of the actual metrics, even without an actual good/bad value judgement, was met with scorn.

None the less..
I think Kyle has some great concepts in the passing game.
However; his overall lack of balance pass vs run concerns me.
But I hope/suspect (that even without Kyle becoming more balanced) Griffin and Co. (Garcon, Hankerson etc) are the tools Kyle needs to execute his pass first offense.

But Kyle has shown that he can create a high octane offense when he has high quality toys. Therefore I expect a more robust showing from him this year.

Based on the opinions of people that know more than me: Kyle is really good at being a coordinator and schemes. Based on my lowly opinion. He is not a great play caller.

Kyle has developed the talent and implemented a system for several years, excuses are done. This year its time to shut up and put up some numbers.

^ I don't think you'll have many that will argue with you. If RG3 develops like everyone hopes he will, Kyle should do just fine.
