Redskins Training Camp Thread-Fan Appreciation Day Thoughts

Thought maybe we could get a fresh thread going. If you're at Fan Appreciation Day report your thoughts here

For those that aren't, for now if you go to the Redskins Facebook page and click on the UStream tab you can see live video right now

I think the cameras will shut off at Noon though once official practice begins

Re: Redskins Training Camp Thread-Fan Appreciation Day Thoughts

When I was a kid we used to get autographs at a sporting goods store in Leesburg.
Cant remember the name of it though.

Re: Redskins Training Camp Thread-Fan Appreciation Day Thoughts

I would think that's how they're doing, but I remember the one time I went they had the little counter things to walk through (forget what they're called). I suppose they may not be doing that anymore.

Either way, from photos/videos I've seen, I'd be almost inclined to say there were less than that amount.

Yeah London Fletcher got in a fight with Will Montgomery and Niles Paul got into a fight with Markus White (I think it was fight, not positive)

Perry Riley and Trent Williams also got into it

From what I saw, they ran him too much -- almost exclusively ran him in their redzone package.

Re: Redskins Training Camp Thread-Fan Appreciation Day Thoughts

Didn't realize just how much bulk Paul put on this offseason.

The reports of him holding on to the ball to long and trying to win an Emmy on play action fakes are honestly scaring me.

Re: Redskins Training Camp Thread-Fan Appreciation Day Thoughts

What about Fred Davis? Have been reading the training camp notes, and don't hear his name called too often. Had expected him to have a huge year this year, but I usually only hear about Garcon, Hankerson, and Moss...

Re: Redskins Training Camp Thread-Fan Appreciation Day Thoughts

I was there.

It was HOT, but we found a spot in the shade luckily, since we had our kids along.

Son LOVED the cheerleaders, was into them more than the players it seemed. Proud of the boy. Have a great photo of him with a cheerleader on each of his shoulders and a big sloppy smile on his face. I believe one of them is the calendar cover girl actually. Wow.

As for the players, we were able to get up right behind the players "bench" when they moved our side across to the edge of the first field near the end.

Two player fights! Not Westbrook-like but these guys seem ready to play. I think the first was Niles Paul and Marcus White...I also saw Will Montgomery come out of a scuffle without his helmet. It looked like Cofield was breaking one up, I don''t think he was involved. I couldn't see past the players to see exactly what happened.

Griffin looked great. it looked like Good Rex showed up too.

As mentioned, Niles Paul is ready for the TE role. He looks solid.

On D, whomever #31 was needs cut. He dropped so many balls and got burnt in coverage drills too.

Sav Rocca has an amazing leg...looked like he could hit the low-flying planes going over the field if he tried.


I was expecting 40,000 people if Rex and Beck brought in 29K last year and this was the last year in Ashburn, but the 25,000 crowd seemed light. Heat I guess? I have no explanation.


I'm glad I was able to make it down one last time before the move. This was my second Fan Appreciation Day, the other was when McNabb came to town. My son has wanted to play football since we came home...which is great. I'm glad he's getting into the game and team I've always loved.
