Re: Redskins Training Camp Thread 2.0

So...to get away from RG3, what about the defense? Looked pretty bad against the run. Do we have an issue here? Is this the year Fletcher falls off a cliff? Maybe the pass rush improves but the run D suffers.

Yea, but he still needs to just shut up. If he just replied to the media by saying something like. "The coach has made the decision for me not to play so I'll be getting ready to go when I'm called on". Say the same thing everytime your asked and the question goes away and its not asked anymore. I personally think he eats this up and likes the attention.

I want that in my QB. I'd much rather have a guy like that, than a guy like Jay Cutler.
What makes you say he's selfish? I don't see it.

If he did that, then the story line is that RG3 hates Shanny and the only solution is to fire Shanny. If you win championships, you can get away with that (Belichek/Brady or Popovich/Duncan) but otherwise you will be blasted for doing that. The media doesnt like that Belichek or Popovich do that, but they cant go off on them because they win and dont get into a lot of trouble. The media would look like fools for attacking them.

I personally think people need to stop trying to neuter him. If interviews are the worst thing he does, im good with that. He is not out drinking and driving or causing trouble. As Redskins fans, we arent used to the media clamoring over one of our guys. So what if he eats it up, that just allows people like Alfred to just be Alfred.

That would be a disaster but I think it's more of working the rust off. That game is not Skins football- missing both CB's and S while starting a rookie. CJ2K's big run, could have been a 0yd stop by Rak. Rak doesn't make that mistake during the regular season.
As far as LF falling off, I'd say he's been slipping and will continue to slide only b/c he's losing a step and is a target vs the pass for his lack of size. He's earned my trust and will be a good leader on the field.
I think Barnett is good vs the run but I don't trust him to spell LF vs the run. We need LF spelled vs the pass, IMO. It will be interesting to see how Haslet tries to save LF's legs for this long season and rotate guys. I'm very optimistic with healthy able bodies Has can be successful.

No Robert, McNabb IS a idiot and you are correct in staying away from that clown.

I'm a little nervous about this...could miss some major time if it's the wrong kind of sprain. With Meriweather's history, we need Thomas to be ready to step in.
This is one of the few times I'm happy to say Doughty could pick up the slack if needed at SS.
Is it me or is PThomas not necessarily as valued and high on depth chart before his injury ? I've heard more praise about Ram than PT's progression.
With injuries and 2 rookies does the team keep 5 Safeties? 6 Safeties !????!?

I'd mostly chalk it up to being the first preseason game. They don't do any game planning and the schemes are basic.

Well there was a game plan for Seattle and they ran for 200+ yards. Just something to look at.

Completely agree.

I never understood this mentality by fans that players aren't allowed to have an opinion. Do they say the right things all the time? Of course not. But that's what makes things interesting. And in the end all that really matters is what they do on the field, and he's got that covered pretty well so far in his career.
