Re: Redskins Training Camp Thread 3.0

I teach public speaking for a living. Confidence speaking and confidence doing other things have nothing to do with one another. I know plenty of quality athletes who struggle with public speaking.

Pretty sure a lot of people have never heard of an NFL rookie having this type of issue because if it does happen (which I'm sure it happens, probably amongst plenty of rookies on plenty of teams) it doesn't make headlines. I don't think there are any players that would want to rat out a rookie teammate like that to the media for being introverted.

Tip #1: Ditch the podium.

Re: Redskins Training Camp Thread 3.0

Should the team seek a 3rd QB to finish the preseason w/ no hope to make the team or know the playbook? I guess I've answered my question.
Does a guy like Seneca Wallace help the WR's better demonstrate their skills more so than white ?
Perhaps now we can make lemonade and evaluate Thompson, Jamison and focus on the run game and not waste carries on KWilliams or Royster who we know what they can do.

Re: Redskins Training Camp Thread 3.0

The Redskins News section links to this : RG3, coaches focused on his lower body mechanics in push toward final clearance - Washington Times

Decent read, but of import is that Griffin has taken full speed reps against the ones. That's good progress. I wonder how the reps are getting split now? I don't think we will find much out, but I can't imagine Rex or PWhite getting many first team reps, even though they will probably get all the playing time the next two games. Good chance for both to put tape out there. Heck if PWhite could somehow put enough on tape, maybe the Skins could get a 6th or 7th round pick, from a qb hungry team.

Less than 3 weeks to MNF

Pat White was cut from the Virginia Destroyers of the UFL. I doubt any NFL team is going to trade for him. Especially given that they know he will be cut.

I doubt it too, however, if he does put tape out there, there are teams that will make odd trades. I don't say it thinking it's highly likely, but did you think we would get anything for Haynesworth, or McNabb? Bruce Allen is good at getting something for "nothing".

I cant say I knew we would, but getting something for people who have had success previously is not that far fetched. A fair amount werent blaming McNabb and Haynesworth, they were blaming Shanny for those problems.
