I'm going with not healthy, check back in 3 weeks though.
I agree I think if Lavar lost a step we would not have signed an extension and have moved him by now b/c he gets paid a shitload.

Re: Where's LaVar

They're being cautious at this point. If he had lost that big of a step that he couldnt start anymore, they'd be searching for a way to cut their losses. Sean Taylor didnt start the first few games last year and he had a stellar preseason. He just didnt practice as much as the other guy and didn't seem to have the chemistry in the backfield as the other safety. Lavar is extremely intellegent and atheletic. Even if he did lose a step, he'd be as good as Washington. Lets not forget that in a sub-par scheme he was elite.

Re: Where's LaVar

I think that Williams always talks highly of him. He is probably hurting some and Holdman is probably playing well. Williams wants Lavar to rush the passer which, for a guy Lavars size, takes great legs.

I believe Lavar was not upset with his playing time to much because after Santana's 2nd TD he cuaght him coming back to the bench and picked him up because he was so happy. He wasn't pouting or anything. He knew why he wasn't playing.

Hopefully we see a healthy Lavar terrorizing QBs in the near future.

Re: Where's LaVar

I'm sure Lavar is sore that he wasnt any part of beating Dallas at home in the last 9 years. I'm sure he wanted to do something the night they inducted Aikman into the ring. Lavar might come along slow but he will have an impact sooner than later. I do believe he's probable to freelance at times and that doesn't help his cause. We had the #3 D without him and beat Dallas at home on Monday night without him. He can only help when he comes back healthy if he plays his position.

Re: Where's LaVar

The Redskins are just sticking to their word and being careful about how much playing time LaVar gets early on. After last year's reinjury problems, they want to make sure that knee is 100% solid before they put him back on the pre-injury workload.

It also looks like LaVar is still a little tentative in Williams' scheme, so I'm sure that's slowing down the process. Until LaVar has a complete grasp of his assignments, Holdman's going to be in more packages, and Williams is going to tend to favor the Holdman packages over the LaVar packages.

Given the incentives in his new deal-- not to mention LaVar's burning passion to play-- I'm sure he's working his tail off trying to get back to full-speed both physically and mentally.

Re: Where's LaVar

I don't know how much stock can be placed in the Wash/Times article in today's paper about LaVar but according to it things are rather confusing about him. He dosen't seem to be satisfied with the way things are going as far as his playing time is concerned, and seems like he's on the wagon again. I guess we'll just have to wait and see how things turn out.
