You would think Gibbs must see something in him or he would not still be with our team after being inactive for 10 games and not playing special teams.
No matter what caused the lack of work, I think Gibbs has sent the message: work hard or sit. Now if McCants doesn't work hard enough he can only blame himself, Gibbs has made it clear what he expects. And from the sounds of things, McCants is looking to earn his playing time the hard way. It's just another sign of the team-wide attitude adjustment that is taking place under Gibbs.

Re: Its All Up To McCants

Sounds like Gibbs sat him down and said, "here's what you've gotta do if you want to play"--Gibbs is pretty straight up about that, I think. But obviously, with Gardner likely gone, the door is wide open for McCants. Gibbs signed him looking at tape from Spurrier, but my guess is at practice and at camp, he wasn't impressed with the work ethic. And that's a huge deal for Gibbs.

McCants could really help us if he gets it going. I take it that's why they gave him the new deal. He's got the tools if he can motivate, and it sounds like he's getting motivated. But talk is cheap. We'll see...

Yeah and you just know the only reason Mitchell has any interest in being a Redskin is so he can promote himself as "Fredex At Fedex!!!" and get more endorsement cash.

Re: Its All Up To McCants

I dunno. I like wearing dumbass shirts like that. People would KNOW I wasn't being serious. Are there any TRUE fans of Freddie Mitchell?

Re: Its All Up To McCants

cmon now thats a stupid question. of course there is. i'd say his fan base hovers around the size of his family. his mom is probably his only true fan, and if i was his dad, i would change my last name.

Re: Its All Up To McCants

McCants can make a far bigger contribution to the Skins this year if he will work hard enough to be on the field much more often than in Red Zone situations. McCants has the physique and the hands to be the "possession receiver" for the team - much as Art Monk was in the 80s. And it is important to get those first downs along the way if you really hope to spend a lot of time in the Red Zone.

If McCants shows up and "dogs it" again this year, he will probably be cut before Game 1. So, I really hope he got the message last year and in this off-season and gets with the program that the coaching staff is putting forth.

Re: Its All Up To McCants

I agree, but I think he is super talented... Way more than people think. So hopefully he will work hard and get on Gibbs good side... Gibbs also likes blocking receivers and I heard that was another reason that McCants fell out of favor...
