You are referring to the ones who say dont play him in preseason and 11 on 11's for the time being as chicken littles. None of us have said to sit him until 2015. Most of us have said the target is to be ready by the first game.

"To that end, Griffin feels he's ready to do more than he is allowed. During the portions of practice devoted to special teams, he goes to a separate field and runs through a scaled-down version of the plays he missed during the 11-on-11s. He said he did get a "little bump-up" in work during Monday morning's walkthrough, but he won't join the 11-on-11 drills in the main practice until next week at the earliest."

Reading is fundamental.

"I'm with you, although I don't expect him to do any pre-season.

I feel RG3 will probably start the first regular season game, if not a couple games in."


I don't even think he'll play pre-season. I think people who are saying he's over exerting himself or endangering himself by doing say, one or two reps the 4th game of pre-season is being a little rash.

Obviously, I'm putting serious emphasis on saying the bubble wrap thing. That's called sarcasm.

I think the guy will do just fine and he's coming along nicely.

Re: Redskins Training Camp Thread wk 1

You know, from what I'm hearing from people both at Redskins TC and on Twitter (''the insiders'') I may want to change my roster prediction for CBs and WRs. I think theres a good chance--as of right now-- that Chase Minnifield makes the roster and Devery Henderson/Stallworth/Briscoe/Dawson does not make the roster for that ''6th WR spot''.

So it would be 6 CBs (Hall, Amerson, Wilson, Crawford, Biggers, Minnifield)

and 5 WRs (Garcon, Morgan, Moss, Hankerson, Robinson)

Re: Redskins Training Camp Thread wk 1

Well not serious emphasis.

Hm. Serious isn't the word I want. I'm not sure what phrase I want to use there, but Jesus, I was just saying.

I think we should hold onto Minnifield. I could see Briscoe not making the cut. Didn't he ride the bench all last season? Dawson could easily be a Niles Paul replacement although I feel like they wanna hang onto him for ST purposes.

Just hopefully not kickoff returns.

Re: Redskins Training Camp Thread wk 1

Watching that Dawson kid run routes eerily reminds me of Victor Cruz a couple years back. I say we keep that kid, he looks like he has some serious slot potential for slot.

From the Operation Patience article:

Quote:
The on-field results have been mixed, though. In 7-on-7 drills Saturday, Griffin overthrew two ‘go’ routes and a post. Observers debate how comfortably he appears to plant on his right leg at the top of his drops.

“That’s one thing we all pointed out when watching film — after the knee injury, it was a lot harder to plant off the back leg,” Griffin said. “As the games went on, it got a little bit better, a little bit better, until the Seattle game when it got re-hurt.

“That’s one thing that the coaches have been paying attention to. I’ve paid attention to it in rehab, and I feel like I’m past that. I feel like I can plant off my back leg just like I did before the injury.”

Still my biggest fear, it sounds like some are telling Griffin that his planting is still shaky at times, but he says he's past that. One thing the Shanahans need to realize is that Griffin is always going to feel better about his body then what might really be happening.

I think thats one of the reasons they are being cautious with him. He said after popping his LCL in the Seattle game (At least I believe he had popped the LCL on that second drive right before the second TD) that he was ok to keep playing. Shanny got ripped for believing RG3, and he isnt going to go through that again.

Briscoe was awful last year. He droppedore passes than he actually caught. Well at least that's what it seems like from my perspective. He didnt have very many chances and he blew more than his fair share.

We have to have come up with a better option out of the UDFAs and Vets we brought in this offseason.

Re: Redskins Training Camp Thread wk 1

Eventhough they are not proven in battle or have seen minimal action (Crawford) I really like Crawford, Minnifield and Amerson. 3 young CB's that I think will be solid players. I would hate to see Crawford or Minnifield cut, can't wait to see what they do in games. I think they will surprise.

Minnifield has the talent to play in the NFL. I think that only a flare-up of his serious knee problems could hold him back. If his knee holds up, he should make the 53-man roster because there is no way that a healthy Minnifield would last on the Practice Squad.

If Skye Dawson makes the team, it will be primarily due to his punt and KO return skills. But I don't think it is necessarily a choice between a WR or a CB. For one thing, I see no need to keep 4 TE's. To me, Niles Paul must surely be on the bubble. So it could turn out to be 6 WR's, 6 CB's, and 3 TE's.
