Hoping our RB group ends up with: Morris, Helu, Thompson, Seastrunk, and Young. I don't think Royster adds anything special, and Redd is PS material, IMO.

O-line battles will be interesting. Particularly Long vs. Chester for me.

Also interesting to see how many LBs they'll keep. I'm thinking Orakpo, Kerrigan, Murphy, and Jenkins(if he plays STs well) at OLB. As for ILB, I'm thinking they'll keep the top 5: Riley, Robinson, Sharpton, Jordan, and Hayward. Or maybe the young guy Compton will impress enough to push Jordan or Hayward off the roster.

My yearly pet project? LOL. Nope, not chosen yet.
I thought that was Hankerson :P

I can't wait to see if anyone is going to step up and replace London Fletcher.

Let the man crushes begin!

Re: Set it all aside -- Training Camp Begins

I want to see tenacity from the defense and special teams. So many games can be won from playing stellar special teams.

Back to football!!!!

Yeah, but I think he's going to start camp on active/PUP, so he might not be practicing for a while. Though according to Rotoworld, he was doing okay at the end of minicamp last month, so perhaps he'll be playing sooner than expected. Clearly, he'll be a pivotal part of our offense next year, so we'd better keep our fingers crossed.

Hey, in my defense, Hankerson is no Pat White.

Re: Set it all aside -- Training Camp Begins

It's that time of year when everything is possible ... the slate is clean and IMO this staff will not have an agenda and everyone will be given a chance to show they can contribute and be able to help the others around them be better

The Redskins were hurt by the salary cap 'fiasco' and especially by not having great depth - it will take time but this franchise is in much better shape than the 3-13 record would indicate

RG3 has a coach and an OC that I think will find a way to help him make the transition to being a better NFL QB than he was given by Kyle and Mike - I think they thought they were helping him but it was short sighted - we have some great weapons on offense and these guys will find a way to help RG3 utilize them

I look for a much more aggressive defense than the conservative defense Mike and Jim used last season

Surely the Special Teams cannot be worse than what we saw - Forbath has to get the ball much deeper on kickoffs or he's not here

Re: Set it all aside -- Training Camp Begins

Just a reminder, isn't it THIS preseason that the NFL is going to mess around with the extra point attempts? I've already forgotten what they had proposed.

Re: Set it all aside -- Training Camp Begins

O should be OK. Gruden's O in Cin went from 18th to 6th from 2011 - 2013. RG3 will be on point, WRs are solid, OL and pass-pro from RB/TEs will be improved

Specials will improve, probably middle of the pack...not the disaster of last year.

D.....there's our challenge. Bowen and Hatcher on PUP, questions at ILB and in the secondary. And Haslett has not had a D ranked higher that 21st in the NFL since prior to 2004.

Based on our schedule, here's what I see now:

Likely Wins: Jax, NYG, Tenn, DAL at Home, Minn - Away
Likely Ls: Phi, AZ, DAL, SF, Ind, NYG - Away, SEA - Home
Toss-ups: TB, STL, Phi - Home, HOU - Away

Going with a split on the toss-ups, we're probably looking at 7-9. Rebuilding (again) sucks.

I hate your thinking on that. I feel like we had some good pick ups in the off season. BUT...... Shit your right rebuilding as always.

Re: Set it all aside -- Training Camp Begins

Mo Hurt on the PUP list. Based on what the WaPo says, it would seem he may be a long shot for the roster: "Hurt, according to Gruden, showed up to camp out of shape and must work to improve his physical state before receiving clearance to practice. Hurt – a seventh-round pick in 2011 – opened last training camp on the PUP list after spending the summer recovering from arthroscopic knee surgery. The team put him on the regular season PUP list to start the year, and he wound up being moved to injured reserve late in the year after failing to provide a satisfactory body of work during the three-week practice evaluation period. Hurt spent the offseason program as a fourth-string right tackle, but entered the league at guard. He has starter Tyler Polumbus, rookie Morgan Moses and second-year pro Tom Compton ahead of him on the depth chart."

7th rounder so neither surprising or much of a loss (which is saying something given our O-line woes). I have to say, I cannot understand guys showing up out of shape. If your job is that of professional athlete, seriously? For a guy like this, it is tempting to just cut him right away and send a message.

Re: Set it all aside -- Training Camp Begins

I just hope we stay healthy. I'm not going to get too high or low on anything that happens before week one. Last year we DOMINATED preseason. I don't just mean we won games, but we crushed teams w/o RG3 and I was all smiles going into the season and we're 3-13. I'm hoping to see some young guys (Moses, Thomas) possibly beat out some veterans, but we'll see. The fun can finally begin!
