Those were games a) where Griffin was just learning about Pro speed, b) the coaches probably were learning what a target he would be, and c) had the replacement refs - and some teams like the Rams - were clearly playing with less than clean intentions.

Over the last 13 games(about 8 per game), all three of those issues seemed to be handled better. And I would expect this year, with a season under everyone's belt, both Griffin and the coaches will be more prepared for how to handle what hits he inevitably takes.

Yeah Dawson is ok. I hoped Lance Lewis would be a preseason star for us. I like how he fights for the ball in the air.

Re: Redskins Training Camp Thread wk 1

I wonder if those teams that are credited with no "scramble" hits just couldn't get to Griffin when he took off, until he slid or ran OB; or if they contained him effectively. The Giants seemed like the former, the Steelers the latter.

As punt returner, yes but I don't think he played great as CB. He did make few plays and bad plays came with it as well. If Minnifield doesn't have any problem with his knee through out the training camp, Crawford is gone unless Shanny is willing to keep Crawford as special team specialist like Banks.

He got absolutely destroyed in the Cincinnati game. They popped him every chance they could.

You are right, I worded it wrong way. I guess I should have said this, Williams and Davis got suspended for marijuana, not PED thus they should not be included in the list since the title is "Redskins move into tie for PED suspension lead". Whichever reasons players get suspended for, is always big deal. I just don't believe that using marijuana should merit suspension but that is different story and it is not right kind of discussion in this thread.

Well said . Throwing to our backs more and to TE's Davis and Reed should help keep Def's honest .

Skye Dawson, one of the UDFA's we signed after the draft. Heard good things about him, but will probably land on the practice squad if anything. If he makes the team, it will most likely be because he is a good KO/punt returner.

To be clear, 8 Redskins suspended. 5 for PEDs, which ties Seahawks. Coincidence that the Redskins and Seahawks are two of the hottest teams in the NFC??? We'll leave that discussion for another day

Yes but 3 of those players are not on the team anymore. If all of those players are still on our team then I would be concerned. But they are not thus I'm not too concerned about it. It is somewhat alarming that it happened during their tenure with the team, but we chose not to resign them so we don't need to worry about them getting caught again.

And not to mention, Black claimed that he was a scapegoat for NFL office.

If he has good hands he looks like he would be more useful then Aldrick. Aldrick is kind of a one trick pony.
