Yeah, I was there, too. It was looking like a cold, wet, miserable loss until he broke left and hurdled one of the Seahawks d-backs.

His Auntie kept yelling "Junior!" about 2 seats away from me, just behind the Redskins bench. Good times!

Great thing about camp: 1. awesome for kids 2. cool to be that close to the team running plays, your literally right on the field with them divided only by a yellow rope 3. Milfs, really good selection

Grinding gears about camp: 1. People who go and talk about work with their buddy from work all day not watching the practice. 2. Adults who arrive 45 mins after it begins, stand behind you and complain they cant see
Were you there today? Damnit, I should've checked, I checked out early from work today and took a couple of friends down there to see the afternoon practice. I love that they let the kids walk and talk with the players on the field after practice was over, if nothing else they provided an awesome moment for a kid to meet one of their idols. The thing I didn't like was at the end when RG3 came over to my section to sign autographs, everyone was treating him like a piece of meat, shouting crap trying to get his attention, I mean he's gracious enough to give his time and sign a crapload of autographs, do you really have to treat him like a caged animal too?

I was glad to see that the players spent more time chatting with kids and signing autographs for them than they were for adults, it's pretty embarrassing to see how grown men act around not just an athlete, but a person, of RG3's caliber.

Re: Redskins Training Camp Thread 2.0

Excited we'll get to see the rookies against they're top offense if only for a few drives. If they do get serious playing time this year we need to be prepared to take some limps.

if you saw a guy with no skins attire, faded green hat, white with plaid button up with with jeans on who was watching practice, checking emails, and occassionally using visine it was i. afterwards went to buzz and neds BBQ right by camp and then helped a family jump there car. It was a great day.

Right. And if holding him back a little makes him that much more hungry on September 9th against the Eagles...even better.

Re: Redskins Training Camp Thread 2.0

Something I did notice yesterday was Leribus not dressed and was wearing like a knee brace. He just stood around looking goofy. McRib looks like a cross between Chum Lee from Pawn Stars and Grimace.

Re: Redskins Training Camp Thread 2.0

After last season, RGIII has lost all credibility when it comes to his health. He's shown that he is willing to sacrifice everything(including the future) to get on the field. I don't buy it and chances are Mike doesn't buy it either. Shanny learned the hard way last season.

But as we mentioned earlier, just because your great at practicing doesn't mean your great at playing.
I completely agree. Sanchez has been looking great at practice recently...

Thompson hasn't made the 53 man roster by any stretch of the imagination. He is a 3rd Down Back only unless he gets the chance and shows something as PR/KR. I can't see him beating out a healthy Roy Helu, Jr. and it doesn't look like he's the coaches' first choice for PR or KR.

Right now, he's in a tough position. He needs to get healthy and do something to stand out in the exhibition games.

yeah. cooley said that a player gets one chance to have some input on whether he plays injured or not. if you lie and say you are okay then aggravate your injury . . .you never get the benefit of the doubt from the coach again.

im not sure if he was talking specifically about shanny or football coaches in general.

but yeah, rg3 needs to chill.

honestly i wouldnt start him until after the bye. starting the season 2-2 under cousins w a bye week to fully install RG3 sounds best for the long term goal.

rg3's knee is not going to make it past 5 years at this rate and they way he pushes himself ...
