Answer the question LA

Q: [Linebackers coach] Dale Lindsey has complimented you on your attention to detail in practice this week. Have you increased your mental focus since you've been away for so long?
Arrington: "My teammates and my coaches have really invested a lot in me and each other. It's a cool deal. I think Coach Lindsey is giving us all an opportunity to be successful. Guys like Marcus Washington and Chris Clemons have raised the bar. Warrick Holdman is playing really hard. It's a healthy competition out here."

Answer the question?

Re: Answer the question LA

Not an answer to the question but a change in LaVar- he said his teamates and coaches have invested alot in him. I can't ever remember him talking about the fact he owes his team something. If he is serious about it, we just may have a very team focused LaVar who is wound up he hasnt played for a year....pretty scary. I think it speaks volumes for the bond this defense has regardless.

The other thing is he sounded like he might be happier just being more of a player and not as much depended on to be a leader (Washington seems to have that job).

Boy, oh boy, I can't wait till the 11th!!!

I hope you are right Kope. An unselfish Lavar would be an amazing addition to our defense. If he stays the same as he was pre-injury he will get some monster sacks, but he will over pursue and give up big plays. If Lavar is learning to play within a system and trust Coach Williams, we are all in for a treat.

Lavar will be the toll man in the NFC East. Your gonna have to pay the toll to pass through DC. There isn't any doubt in my mind he will be monster lurking in the back of the minds of our opponents. I foresee a big year.

Re: Answer the question LA

A focused LaVar could lead to a great player. An unfocused LaVar we've seen.

Re: Answer the question LA

LaVar if he stays healthy will heavily influence games and other teams game planning. When he connects its usually serious. Along with a healthy Daniels the defensive right side will be kinda scary with ST backing up the rear. Our defense shined without LaVar and with him it could possibly dominate.

Re: Answer the question LA

He actually answered that question either before that particular question or after, I can't remember the sequence. But he said that his teammates gave him the moniker of "Mind Hunter" and that he is seeking out who is behind each statement and thought. This to me sounded like he is focused on the mental aspect of the game more, right?

Re: Answer the question LA

In a roundabout sorta way I think he did answer the question.

I guess it goes to show what a microscope this guy is under at times, when we're picking apart his interviews and saying he didn't answer a question to our satisfaction.

Re: Answer the question LA

An "unfocused" Arrington has been pretty damn good, can't wait to see him really focus and get down to business.

Yah, that darn unfocused three-time pro bowler.......let's hope we don't have to deal with him again.

Re: Answer the question LA

I just can't wait to see him start baching some heads. My most memorable moment of any football game was the moment he ended Aikman's career and EVERYONE KNEW IT. He knew it, I knew it, even old Troy knew it. Ending the career of a Cowboy like that, without actually hurting him in any serious long term way, is probably the highlight of the Skins last decade to be honest.

It really was a great hit. And not only did it take out their All-American QB, it pushed Troy into the broadcast booth sooner.......which I'm embarrassed to admit I kinda like.

I saw Lavar interviewed and he was very subdued in the interview. It was like he was waiting to make his statment on the field and I very impressed with his demeanor with the press. It just left me with the feeling that I would hate to be on the opposite side of the ball from him.
I get the feeling he's got a lot of frustration built up inside, but he's waiting to let it out on the field instead of lashing out at the media.
