Well, I guess that's not a phrase you want to hear in the "Player Breeder" game. "I'm holding it for a friend?"

Brian Orakpo>>>>>>>>than Phillip Thomas.

If we were to lose Orakpo that would be huge. People were flipping over a backup safety. I'm flipped over Orakpo when all I read and assumed at the time was "Orakpo just went down in pain with a leg injury" assuming the worst that he tore his ACL. Now that its confirmed that its a bruise, no need to be scared, but it gets you nervous when a pro bowl caliber starter gets hurt with a leg injury.

Big difference between an unproven 4th round backup safety or a Keenan Robinson back up LB for example.

Thank you for the hearty morning laugh.

Got it, flipping out over an injury without waiting to hear the extent -- OK. Discussing who the starting Safeties will be, after a promising rookie is declared out for the season -- need to chill.

Thanks for the clarification

To be clear ... "flipping out over an injury [BASED ON A COUPLE TWITTER FEEDS, BECAUSE YOU AREN'T ACTUALLY AT CAMP] without waiting to hear the extent"

see ... that makes it a much more reasonable response.

Re: Redskins Training Camp Thread 3.0

I'd be interested to know what type of conditioning we've been doing in camp, specifically to prepare for week 1? I know its just preseason, and I still don't expect this experiment to work out.. but I was left pretty impressed by the Eagles tempo last night. I think one of our biggest things week 1 will just be to not be tired as they are running that no huddle.

Re: Redskins Training Camp Thread 3.0

After Tom Brady's scare earlier this week, Mike Shannahan needs to look at RGIII and say "See that's what I'm talking about, don't ask me about playing in the Preseason anymore." RGIII just wants out there because his team is out there. He will be really "antsy" after Monday night at home on the sidelines.

Well there's some truth to that, because where I heard it on twitter was from redskins beat reporters (mike jones, rich Campbell) who were at camp. Not some Joe Schmo skins fan.

And when I refer to people freaking out over Thomas, I'm referring to twitter, radio, other message boards. Not just the wise on TheWarpath.

Agreed. Particularly this:

It's {the media} all a big, stupid cycle. But you know that. Seeing RG3 coopted into it is what's kind of jarring. The player who was pretty much impossible to root against — literally one of the only things all football fans could agree on — is, I guess, going to be someone we can all argue about for the next few years. Somewhere along the line he's become this polarizing force, where trolls now realize that any imaginary controversy involving RG3 will get people angry and keep people engaged on all sides.

And:

It's one thing when guys like Tim Tebow or 40-year-old Brett Favre get co-opted into the stupidity cycle; they almost work better as sideshows. But RG3 is so much better than all that. He was probably the most exciting player in football last year. If the RedZone Channel had an MVP award, he would've had it sewn up by Week 8. He's stupidly impressive off the field, and on the field, he took a franchise that had been dead and hopeless for the better part of 20 years and turned things around in the span of three months. Superstars like that are the ones who end up transcending games, and teams, and even seasons. Or, to put it differently: Guys like RG3 are the athletes that we remember forever.
Now it's year two. Everything will get more complicated, and probably a little unbearable. It's inevitable. So as far as RG3's concerned, just try to enjoy what happens on the field and tune out the rest. And remember the most important lesson for any fan in 2013: Don't let sports media ruin sports for you.


Clearly SS has a lot to answer for.
