Rock Cartwright's Movie

The NFL's new rules limiting online news organizations to 45-second video clips have meant that the Redskins' practice field isn't littered with bloggers sporting handheld video cameras. Filling the void is Rock Cartwright, the veteran running back who recently taped his teammates as they filed off the team bus and entered the training facility. Really, he was circling them and getting all cinematic and stuff. I kept waiting for the boom mic guy to jump out of the bushes.

(John McDonnell - TWP).

"I'm making a movie; 'The Road to the Super Bowl'," Cartwright jokingly announced, although with the "SB" phrase verboten in Ashburn nowadays, he later amended the title.

"I'm just saying if we get to the big game like everybody dreams of doing when the season first starts, then that's what it'll be called," he told me. "If not, I'll just hold it for personal memories."

Cartwright has been logging footage of training camp's downtime and locker room hijinks, and he is already learning how to produce good copy--"one of the guys who's mainly on the footage is Fred [Smoot]," he said. He seemed satisfied with his progress thus far, but declined to elaborate on potential scenes.

"I got quite a few shots," he assured me. "I'll leave that for when the tape is released."

I doubt if it will be as popular as the Rayful Edmond DVD, but could be a barbershop hit nonetheless.

Is it just my imagination (wasted on football instead of other things), or is there a running pictorial theme of Redskin RBs fumbling?

Insure that camera.

Rock is a great guy, I remember getting his autograph at training camp during his rookie year and thinking that, pound for pound, he was the most powerful looking guy on the field.

Fittingly, the dude is built like a boulder.

Sounds great as long as there's no footage of the Jansen-Rabach trailer.
