Just curious, but any reason why he would have been penciled in as the starting RT going into TC?

I don't know. It's what I had heard. They love him and believe the RT job is his to lose. But they seem to prefer to develop him at LT instead

That doesn't bode well for a guy like Crawford, whom may be the odd man out with EJ, JW, DH, DA all locks for the most part. Leaving minnefield and Crawford battling for the last spot.
I dont see how Crawford doesnt make the team.

Exactly. Crawford is a future starting CB on our team. All I read was how great of mini camp and trading camp RC was doing as a DB.

IF...big IF, but if Chase Minnefield plays every game and is 100% healthy, that could be a threat to Crawford's spot. But I think its a long shot.

The Skye receiver kid might have a shot to make the team if he plays well enough. Remember we need a back up slot WR.

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.

It's not a great thing, but I think a footnote should be added that 3 of the 6 PED players are no longer on the team and a 4th Tanard Jackson is highly questionable to return. Granted none of the 3 that are gone were critical starters but I don't see the Skins as having a culture that makes you think it's no big deal if you are caught. That is opposed to the Seahawks who still have 4 of their players on their team.

Also from the earlier PFT story(before we got these 2 and tied Seattle):
Quote:
Two other teams, the Broncos and Giants, have had four suspensions each, while the Patriots, Redskins, Bengals, Texans and Rams are tied for fourth with three each.

With 50 total suspensions during that time frame, 22 teams have had at least one.

Only the Bills, Lions, Jaguars, Colts, Chiefs, Jets, Raiders, Cowboys, Eagles and 49ers have stayed off the board.

Robert Griffin III took 152 hits in 2012. Here’s how that number can be reduced. - The Washington Post

Re: Redskins Training Camp Thread wk 1

There's a good interactive graph in that article, and what it showed me, was the way to reduce the hits Griffin takes, is to not play the Bengals!

edit: and it was nice to see a Post article that isn't bashing the Skins. Very well written analysis piece.

Or the Rams , I think they hit RG111 late a number of times . Lets hope R. Helu , C. Thompson (R) and J. Reed (R) can run and make some big plays in the passing game .

50 of the 152 hits came in the first 3 games(about 17/game). 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.
